News:Jordan Webb was arrested on a charge of second-degree assault Saturday morning, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The former Kansas transfer isn't exactly a treasured asset for Colorado after throwing eight touchdowns and eight interceptions last year while averaging just 5.4 yards per pass, but he still could be the team's best option at quarterback. It's not clear whether he'll face any discipline. Jordan Webb is also attempting to return from a torn ACL in the spring.
Colorado's Webb Sees Significant Playing Time vs. Washington
News:Jordan Webb completed 6-of-16 passes for 33 yards Saturday as Colorado fell to Washington 38-3 at home in Boulder.
Analysis:Jordan Webb did not start Saturday's game for the Buffaloes, but entered in place of Connor Wood midway through the second quarter. Combined, Webb and Wood finished 9-of-22 passing for 44 yards and two interceptions in Saturday's loss to the Huskies. Again, there is absolutely no fantasy value to be found in Boulder this season.
News: Coach Jon Embree told members of the media Tuesday that Jordan Webb will not start Saturday at Arizona, and Nick Hirschman or Connor Wood will start in his place, Buffzone.com reports.
Analysis:Jordan Webb has started all nine games Colorado has played to this point in the season, but completed just 55.4 percent of his throws for 1,401 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. Fantasy owners would do well to avoid the Colorado quarterback situation if at all possible.
Colorado's Webb Completes Just 40 Percent of Passes
News:Jordan Webb hit 4-of-10 passing for 19 yards Saturday as Colorado fell to Stanford 48-0 at home in Boulder.
Analysis:Jordan Webb saw the most passing attempts of the three Colorado quarterbacks that played in Saturday's loss to Stanford, but still ended the day with just 19 yards passing. The Buffaloes quarterback situation is an absolute mess from a fantasy perspective.
News:Jordan Webb completed 7-of-11 passes for 31 yards Saturday as Colorado fell to Oregon 70-14 on the road in Eugene.
Analysis:Jordan Webb was eventually replaced by Nick Hirschman, who ended the game 7-of-16 passing for 64 yards. Neither quarterback holds any sort of fantasy value moving forward.
News:Jordan Webb completed 18-of-35 passing for 210 yards and three interceptions Saturday as Colorado was routed by USC 50-6 on the road in Los Angeles.
Analysis:Jordan Webb earned his fifth, sixth and seventh interception in five starts in Saturday's loss to the Trojans. He now has just one more touchdown (eight) than he does picks for the season.
Colorado's Webb Fails to Complete 50 Percent of Passes
News:Jordan Webb completed 20-of-41 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown Thursday night as Colorado fell to Arizona State 51-17 at home in Boulder.
Analysis: About the only thing positive Jordan Webb could take away from Thursday night's performance was the fact that for just the third time this season, the junior completed a game without throwing an interception.
Colorado's Webb: 184 Yards Passing, TD, INT vs. UCLA
News:Jordan Webb completed 21-of-32 passing for 184 yards, a touchdown and an interception Saturday as Colorado fell to UCLA 42-14 at home in Boulder.
Analysis:Jordan Webb may have shown signs of brilliance last week in a surprising win over Washington State, but struggled greatly against a strong UCLA defense Saturday. On the plus side, the junior has boosted his completion rating to 67-percent over his last two starts.
News:Jordan Webb completed 29-of-42 passing for 345 yards, two touchdowns and an interception Saturday as Colorado surprised Washington State 35-34 on the road in Pullman.
Analysis: After a terrible performance on the road against Fresno State last week, Jordan Webb ended up putting on a nice showing in Week Four against the Cougars. Regardless, Webb has not shown enough consistency to warrant usage by fantasy owners at this point in the season.
Colorado's Webb Shares QB Duties w/ Connor Wood v. Fresno St.
News:Jordan Webb ended up sharing duties under center with backup Connor Wood Saturday as Colorado fell to Fresno State 69-14 on the road. For the game, Webb completed just 5-of-13 passes for 85 yards, a touchdown and two interception.
Analysis: Colorado's quarterback play so far this season, much like the overall play of the team itself, is a complete disaster, with Wood fairing little better than Jordan Webb in the loss to Fresno State (5-of-14 for 47 yards and two interceptions). No fantasy value to be had in Boulder at quarterback (or any other position) at this point in time.
News:Jordan Webb completed 12-of-24 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown Saturday as Colorado fell to Sacramento State 30-28 at home in Boulder.
Analysis:Jordan Webb was not only outplayed by Sacramento State's Garrett Safron - 25-of-37 passing for 312 yards and two touchdowns - in Saturday's loss, but also took a backseat to the sudden emergence at tailback of Colorado freshmen Christian Powell, who finished with 147 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries.
News:Jordan Webb went 22-of-41 passing for 187 yards and two touchdowns Saturday as Colorado fell to Colorado State 22-17 in its season opener in Denver.
Analysis: A respectable debut for the former quarterback for the Kansas Jayhawks, but both Jordan Webb and Colorado as a team has a long way to go before either can be viewed as a true fantasy contributor owners both in and outside of Pac-12 leagues.
News:Jordan Webb has been named Colorado's starting quarterback, the Daily Camera reports.
Analysis:Jordan Webb is a Kansas transfer who beat out Texas transfer Connor Wood for the role. Neither player is an appealing fantasy option at the moment.
News: Despite just having visited the campus this Saturday, quarterback Dayne Crist has already been offered a scholarship at Kansas.
Analysis: It makes sense that Crist could follow Charlie Weis to Lawrence. But even if he does go there, he will have to beat out Jordan Webb for the starting job.
News: There are only two Kansas wide receivers, D.J. Beshears and Kale Pick, have played in every game this season, but it hasn't affected the strong play of quarterback Jordan Webb. The Jayhawks now plan to only rotate four or five guys in and out.
Analysis: It's still hard to say who the number one guy is outside for Webb after three games, but if there ends up being more stability like coach Turner Gill says there will, perhaps someone will emerge as Webb's favorite target.
News: Kansas is expected to get wide receivers JaCorey Shepherd and Daymond Patterson back from injury this week against Texas Tech and will also get back senior defensive tackle Pat Dorsey.
Analysis: Shepherd's injury was undisclosed while Patterson hurt his groin in the season opener and was believed to be taking a medical redshirt. Patterson, expected to be the team's number one threat at receiver, will be a welcome sight for quarterback Jordan Webb, while Shepherd has already had a 100-yard game this season.
News: Obviously, Kansas' defense is off limits against almost anyone. But Georgia Tech's defense has been iffy against some easy opponents thus far this season, so running back James Sims is a solid option and quarterback Jordan Webb might be worth a look in deeper leagues.
Analysis: There has been uncertainty at wide receiver for the Jayhawks because of injury, so it's hard to say who will step up this week, but Webb has still managed to find one guy each week that becomes his favorite target. Sims leads a solid bunch of running backs - look for freshman Darrian Miller to make some noise as well.
News: Kansas quarterback Jordan Webb went 21 of 30 for 281 yards and three touchdowns, which included a fourth down touchdown pass late to retake the lead and defeat Northern Illinois.
Analysis: Webb has done nothing but impress since taking over as the Jayhawks' starting quarterback, and managed to lead his team to victory over one of the best mid-majors in the country.
News: Kansas wide receiver JaCorey Shepherd came out of nowhere and caught three passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against McNeese State, scoring on 56 and 48 yard catches.
Analysis: The only other receiver to produce any fantasy points for the Jayhawks was Daymond Patterson, who had three catches for 34 yards and a touchdown. Shepherd should be available in most leagues and might be someone to take a stab at if he continues to be quarterback Jordan Webb's favorite target and deep threat.
News: Aside from Daymond Patterson, the Kansas Jayhawks' wide receiver corps does present a wide-out with more than ten receptions.
Analysis: The Jayhawks also lack size at receiver with the exception of Chris Omigie, a 6 foot 4 sophomore who is competing with sophomore Christian Matthews for the starting spot opposite of Patterson. There are several others looking to step up, but no proven options for newly-named starter Jordan Webb.
News: On Friday, Kansas head coach Turner Gill announced that Jordan Webb would be the Jayhawks starting quarterback over Quinn Mecham.
Analysis: Webb started a majority of Kansas' games last season and it looks like Gill is going with youth over tenure as the senior Mecham will back up the redshirt sophomore. Webb was expected to win the job, especially with freshman Brock Berglund missing all of spring camp and some of fall practices dealing with a legal issue.
News: Ever since spring ball, Kansas quarterback Jordan Webb has kept a narrow lead over Quinn Mecham for the Jayhawks' starting job. An official decision should be made next week.
Analysis: We are getting closer and closer to week one, so a decision needs to made soon. But it has been Webb's job to lose and it appears that he hasn't lost it yet. Head coach Turner Gill was also impressed with what freshman Michael Cummings has done in a limited amount of time.
News: Kansas coach Turner Gill said sophomore quarterback Jordan Webb will be number one on the depth chart when fall practice opens for the Jayhawks.
Analysis: This is still a situation to stay away from in your fantasy college football drafts, as there should still be a quarterback competition among Webb, troubled freshman Brock Berglund and fellow frosh Michael Cummings. Stay tuned.
News: Kansas true freshman quarterback Brock Berglund has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. He will stand trial on December 13, but still be in attendance once practice starts up on August 3.
Analysis: Berglund was expected to compete with Jordan Webb for the starting QB job this fall, but his off the field issues will hinder his chances at earning the starting job. A dual-threat quarterback, Berglund may still get a chance here and there for a squad that probably won't finish near the top of the Big Twelve.
News: Although Jordan Webb is favored to enter the fall as the starting quarterback for the Kansas Jayhawks, offensive coordinator Chuck Long makes it a point to say " Be careful about doubting Quinn. Because the guy will come out and do something great right before your eyes." Quinn Mecham has worked hard all offseason to improve his arm strength and mobility in an effort to launch an assault against Webb for the starting spot.
Analysis: Whoever wins the job will have the luxury of handing the ball off to freshman sensation James Sims but it remains to be seen who will step up to receive passes. Daymond Patterson led the team with 60 receptions but only registered a little over eight yards a catch. Tim Biere is a solid, if not spectacular, option at tight end, but what the Jayhawks really need is a field stretcher.
News: Kansas coaches are pleased with the progress made by quarterback Jordan Webb. Offensive coordinator Chuck Long says that while Webb has always had the physical part down, it's the mental part of the game where the RS sophomore has taken off.
Analysis: Webb is expected to battle with freshman Brock Berglund for the right to lead the Jayhawk attack, and at this point it's hard to envision Berglund taking over just yet.
News: Kansas quarterback Jordan Webb has been in a heated competition with Quinn Mecham to be the starting quarterback for the Jayhawks and sources say that Webb has taken the lead. Webb has garnered praise from his coaching staff with head coach Turner Gill saying he has displayed poise and confidence while offensive coordinator Chuck Long can see that Webb has gained a lot of confidence heading into his second year.
Analysis: Regardless of who wins the starting job, they will have little fantasy value. The real question is whether Mecham or Webb can provide enough of a passing threat to open up the running lanes for James Sims and Darrian Miller.
Webb Said to Have Slight Edge in Kansas QB Competition
News: Webb, says head coach Turner Gill, has "an edge right now" over senior Quinn Mecham in the competition to be named starting quarterback for Kansas coming out of spring, KUSports.com reports.
Analysis: Gill tells reporters, "Both guys have done some good things. But if I had to give an edge right now, I would give it to Jordan Webb." Look for the quarterback competition to expand to a four-way race in fall, however, especially once four-star incoming freshman Brock Berglund arrives on campus along with Michael Cummings.
News: Webb (shoulder) is available only in an emergency this week, the Topeka Capital-Journal reports.
Analysis: With Webb hurt and Kale Pick (concussion) out, third-string quarterback Quinn Mecham will start this week at Iowa State.
Webbs Poor Play Leads to Benching in Jayhawk Loss
News: Webb completed 9-of-18 pass attempts for only 90 yards and two interceptions prior to being benched in Kansas' 45-10 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday. He also rushed for 75 yards on seven carries.
Analysis: Webb did not play very well on Saturday and his starting job could be in jeopardy next week. Steer clear of this situation altogether.
News: Webb completed 26-of-46 pass attempts for 228 yards and an interception in the Jayhawk's 59-7 loss to the Wildcats on Thursday.
Analysis: Webb disappointed in the Kansas-Kansas State rivalry game. He doesn't even warrant Big 12-only attention right now.
News: Webb completed 16-of-28 pass attempts for 171 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in a 55-7 loss to Baylor on Saturday.
Analysis: Baylor's defense did not allow Webb and the Kansas offense to establish any sort of rhythm on Saturday, yet Webb finished with a respectable line. Webb could be worth starting in Big 12-only leagues for Kansas' rivalry matchup against Kansas State next game.
News: Webb completed 17-of-27 pass attempts for 249 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-16 win over New Mexico State. He also gained 33 yards on five carries.
Analysis: A nice fantasy game from Webb overall. The rookie has now thrown five touchdowns to only one interception since becoming the Jayhawks' starter this season. He has become a viable Big 12-only option.
News: Webb completed 16-of-26 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in Kansas' loss to Southern Missouri on Friday.
Analysis: A rather pedestrian performance from Webb, and the loss definitely affects the rookie's job security. It is hard to recommend him, even in Big 12-only leagues, at this point. But he does get a soft matchup against New Mexico State next week if you are willing to take the risk.
Webb Throws Three Scores in First Start for Jayhawks
News: Webb completed 18-of-29 passes for 179 yards and three touchdowns, leading Kansas to an upset victory over Georgia Tech in his first career start on Saturday.
Analysis: Kansas coach Turner Gill named Webb the starter over Kale Pick earlier this week, and the switch paid off. With this solid performance, Webb appears to have won the starting job. He gets a nice matchup against Southern Mississippi next week and is worth picking up in Big 12-only leagues.
News: Webb completed 6-of-11 pass attempts for 59 yards in relief of starting quarterback Kale Pick on Saturday.
Analysis: Webb didn't fare much better than Pick, but a quarterback controversy seems to be developing. You should probably steer clear of the situation regardless of who gets the nod.
News: Webb could get playing time at quarterback in the season opener Saturday against North Dakota State, the Topeka Capital-Journal reports.
Analysis: Kale Pick was named the starter, but it sounds like Webb will get time if Kansas gets a large lead. This doesn't speak well for Pick's job security, however.
News: Kansas sophomore quarterback Kale Pick may have performed better than Webb in the spring game back in April, but KU coach Turner Gill said again Wednesday that the competition will continue into fall camp, the Wichita Eagle reports.
Analysis: "The quarterback spot is definitely wide open at this point in time for us," Gill said, "and we'll see how that all shakes out." Our money is still on Pick, but this is certainly a situation to monitor closely.
News: Many believe that sophomore Kale Pick is the favorite to replace Todd Reesing under center for Kansas in the 2010 season, but head coach Turner Gill has recently complimented the play of Webb, who prior to this spring, has never played quarterback, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Says Gill of Webb, "He has a great command in the huddle. I like his demeanor. He's played smart, thrown the ball fairly well and he's got a good grasp of what we're doing right now."
