  Colts | Jacoby Brissett unlikely to get traded    Mon Jan 14, 02:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett appears unlikely to be traded during the offseason, as general manager Chris Ballard admitted Monday, Jan. 14, that 'it would take somebody doing something that would blow me away, and it has to be the right thing for the kid, too.'

Footballguys view: Ballard revealed he turned down offers for Brissett during the 2018 season. The Colts have Brissett under contract through the 2019 season, so they may not be trading him now...but that doesn't mean he might not be available before the 2019 trade deadline.

  Seahawks | Seattle had interest in Jacoby Brissett    Sun Aug 19, 12:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett was recently a trade target for the Seattle Seahawks, but the Colts rejected the offer of a second-round pick for Brissett, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This report seems to be of dubious quality, but the team was interested in Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson is a free agent in 2020. The Seahawks can always franchise tag him but otherwise Wilson will be getting 25 million or more a year, likely fully guaranteed after the contract Kirk Cousins got this offseason.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett unlikely to be moved    Sat Aug 4, 05:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett likely will not be traded even if a team offered a first-round pick, according to owner Jim Irsay. Irsay said he believes Brissett is the best backup quarterback in the NFL.

Footballguys view: It's debatable who the best backup quarterback in the league is, but Philadelphia fans (hello, Nick Foles, Super Bowl MVP) would take issue with Irsay's claim. Brissett showed a bit filling in for Andrew Luck last year. He's not Luck, but if Brissett is forced into the lineup the bottom won't fall out of the offense.

  Colts | Indy declines two offers for Jacoby Brissett    Mon Mar 26, 10:20 PM

The Indianapolis Colts turned down two recent offers from undisclosed teams attempting to trade for QB Jacoby Brissett, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Brissett is under contract for a great price. The Colts have Brissett at $735,076 for 2018 and he's scheduled to earn $890,114 in 2019. He's a cheap backup option to Andrew Luck with plenty of starting experience.

  Colts | Week 17 game recap for Indy    Sun Dec 31, 04:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett went 15-for-25 for 114 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 17. RB Frank Gore rushed for 100 yards on 24 carries and caught three passes for 11 yards. RB Marlon Mack rushed for 28 yards and one touchdown on seven carries and caught two passes for 10 yards. TE Jack Doyle caught four passes for 38 yards and one touchdown during the game, while WR T.Y. Hilton caught three passes for 14 yards.

Footballguys view: Frank Gore finished strong and made a good case to be a worthy part of an NFL backfield if he wants to play another season to add to his Hall of Fame resume.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Monday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Brissett is going to have the Broncos defense chasing him around on Thursday night. He's only an option for start 2-QB leagues or QB-flex formats...and we're not excited about him in those formats based on the short week and the upcoming opponent.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: The Colts offense is so sad to watch and while Brissett has had moments this year, he's not in a good situation and not playing well overall. Against a tough Tennessee defense, Brissett is no more than a low-end QB2 or a high-end QB3.

Footballguys view: Brissett was able to ride TY Hilton to a good fantasy day against the Texans. He's proving that he has a future as a starting quarterback, but could have a lot rougher time against the Steelers next week.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (wrist) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Brissett is set to play on Monday night against the Titans, and fantasy owners should see him as a high-end QB2 in Week 6. He's building a better rapport with the weapons around him and his nose for rushing TDs (three so far this year) makes Brissett a streaming option for fantasy owners shuffling QBs.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett completed 17 of his 24 pass attempts for 259 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Browns and he added five runs for 14 yards and two scores.

Footballguys view: Maybe Brissett just needed some time to get familiar with the offense. The Browns are not one of the better defenses in the league, and Brissett will come back to earth against the Seahawks next week, but it looks like the Colts made a brilliant preseason trade acquiring him.

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will start against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2, according to a source.

  Colts | Indianapolis QBs splitting reps    Wed Sep 13, 01:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts QBs Jacoby Brissett and Scott Tolzien will share first-team reps this week until head coach Chuck Pagano named a starter for Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to downgrade Colts skill position players, no matter who starts at quarterback. We'd like to see Brissett get the nod just to see how he looks as the lead QB entering a game. Brissett came in for an ineffective (duh) Scott Tolzien in Week 1.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett could be the starter    Mon Sep 11, 08:30 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett marched the team 84 yards on five plays, which led to the only touchdown in Week 1 when he entered the game. He's likely the starting quarterback, in the opinion of beat writer Zak Keefer.

Footballguys view: Anything is better than Scott Tolzien, right? Brissett was added via trade with the New England Patriots before the start of the regular season and he was thrust into action during the season opener against the Rams. The Colts are just waiting for Andrew Luck (shoulder) to be healthy enough to play, but his timeline is a great unknown at this time.

  Colts | Indianapolis acquires Jacoby Brissett    Sat Sep 2, 02:05 PM

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett was acquired by the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Sept. 2, in exchange for WR Phillip Dorsett, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Colts are unlikely to start Andrew Luck in Week 1, and his status after that is a bit of an unknown. Brissett had a monster game (341 passing yards, 5 total TDs) in the preseason finale, and he could start for the Colts while Luck is out. Scott Tolzien was set to be the starter in Luck's absence.

  Patriots | Jacoby Brissett thrives in preseason finale    Thu Aug 31, 10:29 PM

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett contributed a sterling performance in the team's final preseason game Thursday, August 31, versus the New York Giants. He finished 28-of-39 for 341 yards to go with four touchdowns and one interception. In addition, he also scored once on the ground, as he added three rushes for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Brissett's roster spot was in danger, and he responded well. The Patriots don't need him like they did last year with Tom Brady's suspension, so he is still on the roster bubble, but if the team has plans to move on from Brady or let Jimmy Garoppolo go into free agency next year, Brissett will be part of that plan assuming they have some confidence in him.

  Patriots | Jacoby Brissett in jeopardy    Mon Aug 7, 07:07 AM

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett is in danger of being cut. With QB Tom Brady and QB Jimmy Garoppolo having strong performances and Brissett having a subpar spring, the Patriots may shore up another part of the roster.

Footballguys view: Brissett was needed to backup Jimmy Garoppolo while Brady suspended last year, but he isn't this year. If the Patriots don't see something worth developing, they will let him go. Chances are another team will and Brissett will be a third quarterback somewhere.

  Patriots | Jacoby Brissett considered a lock    Fri Jul 14, 10:25 AM

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett is considered a lock to make the team by beat writer Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: The future is unknown for backup Jimmy Garropolo. He's set to be a free agent after the season, and he's set to get a pretty lucrative contract to be a starter elsewhere. Brissett is big, athletic and has a strong arm. He should continue to be groomed as a backup behind Tom Brady.
