News:Chase Rettig completed 27-of-43 passes for 247 yards, and was intercepted once Saturday against Notre Dame.
Analysis: It was the first time all season Chase Rettig failed to throw a touchdown pass, but still has just 16 scores through 10 games. He's a much better player as a junior, and has 843 more passing yards than he did a season ago, with two game remaining, but he remains a low-end fantasy option.
News:Chase Rettig hit on 16-of-29 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown in a loss at Army on Saturday.
Analysis: Boston College got its ground game going in the stunning defeat, and Chase Rettig posted a line more in line with his history.
News:Chase Rettig completed 25-of-43 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns Saturday against Clemson. He was picked off twice.
Analysis: The interceptions kept Chase Rettig's scoring down, and he had just one coming in to the season. The Eagles continued to struggle running the ball, and Rettig will keep chucking it as a result. He should be in line for another big day next Saturday against Army.
News:Chase Rettig completed 24-of-44 passes for 291 yards and a touchdown Saturday at Northwestern.
Analysis:Chase Rettig had six games in 2011 with 23 attempts or less, but this season has been a much different story. He hasn't been perfect, and won't be confused for a Heisman candidate, but the light bulb has clearly come on for the junior.
News:Chase Rettig threw for 219 yards and three touchdowns against Maine, hitting on 16-of-32 passes
Analysis:Chase Rettig now has five touchdowns through two games, after tossing only 12 a season ago. He's comfortable in an offense for the first time, and looks like a sold bye week plug in, at least.
News:Chase Rettig completed 32 of 51 passes for a career-high 441 yards and two touchdowns against Miami.
Analysis: It could have been even better if it weren't for countless drops. Chase Rettig looked like he had the keys to the offense all night, something we suspected but needed to see before believing. We now believe; Rettig won't be a stud, but he's looking more than capable of being a national backup.
News:Chase Rettig threw for 259 yards and a touchdown in the second scrimmage of August, according to the school's official site.
Analysis: Scrimmage stats are usually meaningless, but it's worth noting Chase Rettig only had one game all of last season with more passing yards. Backup Josh Bordner wasn't nearly as impressive (67 yards with an interception,) and we're getting cautiously optimistic about Rettig's development. He's still unlikely to have any national appeal, but he's not sounding like the ACC's worst signal caller either.
News:Chase Rettig is enjoying a little more freedom in new offensive coordinator Doug Martin's offense, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: To say it's a make or break year for Chase Rettig would be an understatement. On his third OC in as many years, Retting notes he has more freedom to read defenses this season, the the Eagles are working to get to the line quicker, and go. It's easy to forget Rettig was a top recruit three years ago. He's got talent, and some skill around him. He still has to be taken as the last of 12 ACC quarterbacks, but there is some marginal upside if you're feeling lucky.
News: Offensive coordinator for Boston College Doug Martin says that Chase Rettig emerged from spring practice atop the Eagles' depth chart at quarterback, and will likely remain the only man BC will use under center heading into the 2012 season, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Martin tells ESPN.com's Heather Dinich he doesn't see the team using two quarterbacks - Retting and backup Josh Bordner - as it did last season, and remains comfortable with either Retting or Bordner working singularly under center. "I think Chase has all of the ability to be one of the top quarterbacks in the conference," Martin comments. "I think Josh has a lot of athletic ability also."
News: Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig finished Thursday night's game against Florida State with just 76 yards passing on 11 of 18 attempts. He threw for a score and a pick, and shared snaps from the second quarter on with redshirt freshman Josh Bordner (1 of 2 passing, 37 yards, INT, 7-45 rushing.)
Analysis: Bordner came in to Chestnut Hill as a classmate of Rettig's, and provided a modest spark as the Eagles failed to make a first down before his appearance. Bordner looked lost as a passer, and this could shape up as a true split snap situation, unlike what we're seeing in Maryland between Danny O'Brien and C.J. Brown. Rettig and Bordner rotated throughout drives in the second half, and in a season that is completely lost, expect lots more of this as we wrap up 2011.
News: Boston College wide receiver Colin Larmond had six catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns against Massachusetts.
Analysis: Quarterback Chase Rettig threw for 196 yards and three scores, so he was obviously looking Larmond's way often. This is more what we had in mind for Larmond coming into the season, so let's hope he can build on this performance next week against Wake Forest.
News: Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers has taken a leave of absence for health reasons, and will be away from the team indefinitely.
Analysis: We wish Rogers all the best in whatever he's dealing with. The hits just keep coming for the Eagles, and while schemes won't change, this can't be viewed with anything but negativity. Tight Ends coach Dave Brock will fill in as acting offensive coordinator.
News: Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig was just 10 of 23 for 70 yards against Central Florida. He was intercepted twice.
Analysis: Yuck. Boston College managed just seven first downs and 141 total yards in the blowout defeat. Maybe next week's matchup with Duke, and the return of Montel Harris, are just what the doctor ordered. Owners sure hope so.
News: With Montel Harris already out of the lineup and Ifeanyi Momah out for the season with a torn ACL, Central Florida may end up being a sneaky defensive play in their matchup with Boston College this weekend.
Analysis: Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig was also injured during the last play of the game when he was sacked so the Eagles are coming in banged up. The Knights showed how they can dominate a game in their opener, however this game would go a long way in making them a fantasy defensive mainstay.
News: Boston College wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah hauled in eight passes for 157 yards against Northwestern.
Analysis: A career day for the giant 6-foot-6 receiver. His frame makes him an obvious target when quarterback Chase Rettig is in trouble. This may be his best game of 2011, but he's worth a roster spot to see if he becomes BC's true go-to guy.
News: Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig went 18-of-25 for 231 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 2nd scrimmage.
Analysis: And this was without wide receiver Colin Larmond who sat out to rest his surgically repaired knee. All signs point to a solid sophomore campaign for Rettig, and he's one of many ACC signal callers we expect to take a nice leap in 2011.
News: Under new offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers, Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig is excited about the possibilities of opening up the playbook in Chestnut Hill this fall.
Analysis: Rettig is throwing around the word "swagger" a lot in the linked article, and Rogers is well known for his work with signal callers. The return of deep threat Colin Larmond has me optimistic that Rettig will enter the upper tier of ACC quarterbacks. The presence of the soon-to be leading rusher in ACC history, Montel Harris, tempers that optimism. While he's probably a year away from true fantasy glory, don't sleep on Rettig.
News: Boston College is down two wide receivers on the heels of news that sophomore Shakim Phillips is transferring, and Clyde Lee becoming an academic casualty.
Analysis: Neither played an important role last year, but Phillips was one of BC's top recruits just a season ago. This will certainly call into question the Eagles' receiving depth, which isn't good news for QB Chase Rettig. Now moreso than ever, Colin Larmond's health is paramount.
News: Rettig completed 12-of-16 passes for 133 yards and two interceptions against Wake Forest Saturday.
Analysis: Rettig could have a bright future for Boston College, but his short-term value is hovering around zero regardless of who the opponent is.
News: Rettig was 9-for-16 for 136 yards, a touchdown and an interception against Clemson on Saturday.
Analysis: This game does not help Rettig's already low value. A favorable matchup against a weak Wake Forest defense could be a cause for optimism in deeper leagues though.
News: Rettig went 18-for-33 for 189 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions against Maryland on Saturday.
Analysis: Not a bad game for Rettig when you consider that mistakes are to be expected for a true Freshman QB. Still, that doesn't do anything for his fantasy value and keeps him from being a viable option at all.
News: Rettig was 9-for-24 for 95 yards against FSU on Saturday.
Analysis: While nobody expected Rettig to come out and have a good game against a stingy FSU defense, his lack of production really hurt BC. Regardless, Rettig wasn't, and shouldn't be, a viable fantasy option at all
News: Rettig (ankle) participated in Wednesday's practice and look set to start this week against Florida State, ESPN Boston reports.
Analysis: He missed last week's game against North Carolina State. Dave Shinskie started last week's game but is out with a concussion.
News: Rettig left Saturday's game against Notre Dame in the second quarter with a left ankle injury, the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Rettig was 5-of-10 for 72 yards with a touchdown before departing. Mike Marscovetra took over at quarterback with Rettig out.
News: Rettig will start against Notre Dame Saturday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: David Shinskie was predictably bad and so the team will turn to its prized true freshman recruit with the desperate hope of finding some remotely competent quarterback play. Don't test your luck with this one.
