TE still open for Packers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Packers are trying to figure out their tight end situation heading into training camp, reports ESPN.

The longer Jermichael Finley (neck) remains unsigned, the more likely it appears his time in Green Bay -- and perhaps in the NFL -- is over, despite his desire to continue to play.

The Packers re-signed Andrew Quarless to a two-year, $3 million contract in March, but that's hardly starter's money. The door is open for rookie third-round draft pick Richard Rodgers, who performed well enough during the organized team activities and minicamp practices (which Quarless missed because of injury) to move into the starting spot. Rodgers has the kind of dynamic athletic ability that Finley brought to the position.

The wild card there is Colt Lyerla, the undrafted but talented rookie from Oregon. Had Lyerla not left the Ducks' program and run into trouble subsequently last year, he might have been a high draft pick. The Packers also will have to assess whether Brandon Bostick can make a bigger impact than he did last season. 


Richard Rodgers to be Packers' starting tight end?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Richard Rodgers, a 6-4, 257-pound rookie out of California, "might have the inside track" to be the Packers' starting tight end, ahead of Brandon Bostick and Andrew Quarless, reports ESPN.com. At least once every offseason practice, Rodgers "made an eye-catching play in the passing game."

Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers, who got more reps due to Quarless' absence, was "very productive." The report said Rodgers must show "he can be an effective blocker once the pads come on in training camp, but at this point he might be in the lead."


Packers re-sign tight end Andrew Quarless


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The Packers held on to one of their own on Thursday, bringing back tight end Andrew Quarless

Quarless finished with 32 catches for 312 yards and two touchdowns.


Eight teams vying for Andrew Quarless


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The agent for free agent tight end Andrew Quarless said he's had discussions with eight teams since the negotiating period opened Saturday, reports ESPN.com. Among those are the Packers, who promoted Quarless to starter last season after Jermichael Finley suffered a neck injury.

Quarless finished with 32 catches for 312 yards and two touchdowns.


Packers, Andrew Quarless talking about a deal


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) The Packers and Andrew Quarless' representatives are discussing a new contract just before the start of free agency this weekend. The team is unsure where Jermichael Finley is in his recovery from neck fusion surgery and might bring Quarless back as part of a backup plan. 

Quarless, who might also draw some attention from the Giants -- home of former Packers assistant Ben McAdoo -- caught 32 passes for 312 yards and two scores last season. 


Giants could be in market for tight end help


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/28/2014) The Giants could look at reuniting offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo with one or two of his former players to fill their void at tight end, reports the Newark Star-Ledger.

McAdoo, who coached the Packers tight ends for six seasons in Green Bay before taking over as quarterbacks coach the past two seasons, likes using the tight end in his offense. The Giants cut Brandon Myers this offseason, and the Packers have two free agents on the market in Andrew Quarless and Jermichael Finley, who is trying to make a comeback following spinal fusion surgery last season.

Either one could be in play for the Giants, who only have Larry Donnell and Adrien Robinson on the roster. Bear Pascoe is going to be an unrestricted free agent.


Packers get help from pair of role players


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Packers received minor contributions from a pair of role players during Sunday's win over the Bears in Week 17. Fullback John Kuhn had one carry for a gain of 1 yard. Tight end Andrew Quarless caught two of his six targets for 31 yards in a 33-28 victory.

Seven Packers cleared for Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The following players on Green Bay's injury report were ruled active for Sunday's regular season finale against the Bears: running back Eddie Lacy, tight end Andrew Quarless (ankle), tight end Jake Stoneburner (illness),  tight end Ryan Taylor (illness), linebacker Nick Perry (foot), defensive lineman Mike Neal (abdomen) and defensive lineman Ryan Pickett (knee).

Five Packers probable Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Packers DE Mike Neal, LB Nick Perry, DT Ryan Pickett, TE Andrew Quarless and TE Ryan Taylor are probable Week 17.

Ryan is dealing with an illness, and did not practice Thursday. The other four players were able to put in limited practice Thursday.


Three Packers chip in to defeat to Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Top receiver Jordy Nelson was the most productive of the minor contributors for the Packers Sunday against Pittsburgh. He caught three passes for 46 yards in the loss, including a 7-yarder to start a vain last-ditch drive.

Also catching one pass in the game was tight end Andrew Quarless, whose fourth quarter snag went for 19 yards.

Running back John Kuhn pitched in with 12 yards on three carries, including a 1-yard scoring burst in the fourth quarter that tied the game at 31-31.


Andrew Quarless' hot streak might end Week 16


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) It might behoove you and potentially surprise you to know that Packers tight end Andrew Quarless has been the ninth-highest scoring Fantasy tight end over the last three weeks, totaling 24 points. In fact, all 24 of his points have come in the last two games thanks to identical stat lines of six catches for 66 yards and one touchdown.

Quarless has been a favorite target of Packers quarterback Matt Flynn, who has made the last three starts in the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). It's looking like Flynn will make another start Sunday against the Steelers, so is it time to trust Quarless in Fantasy leagues Week 16?

Tight ends have had moderate success against the Steelers, averaging 54.2 receiving yards and 7.4 Fantasy points per week. Though, the last two weeks tight ends have totaled three touchdowns and 31 Fantasy points against Pittsburgh. Still, only two tight ends -- Rob Gronkowski and Charles Clay -- have had at least double-digit Fantasy points against the Steelers.

Quarless has played well the last two weeks, but he had favorable matchups against the Falcons and Cowboys -- two teams that have struggled against tight ends. Week 16 presents an opportunity for Quarless to potentially take a step back, despite tight ends having success against Pittsburgh recently.

It's probably safe to consider Quarless more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end Week 16.


Andrew Quarless continues progress with big game in Big D


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Packers tight end Andrew Quarless is growing into his job as the replacement for injured Jermichael Finley. He certainly showed his growth Sunday in Dallas.

Quarless played a huge role in the monumental comeback victory. He caught all six passes for a season-high 83 yards in the second half, including his second touchdown in two games, a 3-yarder midway through the third quarter that he helped set up with a 22-yard snag.

He now has 12 receptions for 149 yards in the last two games, which exceeds his total for the previous five games combined. Quarless will try to take his momentum and run with it when the Packers host Pittsburgh in Week 16.


Andrew Quarless steps up in the snow


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Looking to make better use of the short passing game with snow on the field and backup Matt Flynn at quarterback, the Packers got tight end Andrew Quarless more involved in the offense Week 14 against the Falcons.

The fourth-year player, who has been filling in for the injured Jermichael Finley since Week 7, set season highs with six catches and 66 receiving yards. His previous highs were five and 34.

Quarless led the Packers in both receptions and targets (seven). He also contributed the team's only touchdown, catching a 2-yard pass from Flynn to put the Packers up 22-21 early in the fourth quarter.

Quarless will look to build off the performance Week 15 at Dallas, but the Packers could have Aaron Rodgers back at quarterback for that game.


Packers have contributors in Week 13


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) The Packers' Week 13 loss at the Lions was ugly -- a 40-10 collapse on Thanksgiving. Some Packers who produced some decent numbers include fullback/third-down back John Kuhn (10 total yards), tight end Ryan Taylor (an 8-yard catch) and tight end Andrew Quarless (a 7-yard catch. Taylor left the game and was evaluated for a concussion. 

The Packers host the Falcons in Week 14. 


Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor to split tight end duties Thursday


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) With Brandon Bostick inactive for Thursday's game at Detroit, tight ends Andrew Quarless and Ryan Taylor are expected to split the positional duties with Bostick unavailable for his regular workload. But neither one is worth risking in Fantasy play. 

Packers get minor contributions from three players Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Packers fullback John Kuhn, tight end Brandon Bostick and tight end Andrew Quarless all made it onto the stat sheet Week 12 vs. Minnesota. 

Kuhn, who was targeted four times, finished with two catches for 29 yards. His longest catch went 20 yards.

Bostick, who was targeted five times, finished with just one catch for 24 yards. Bostick had a great chance to record a touchdown in the second half, but he couldn't haul in a 15-yard pass from Matt Flynn that hit him right in the chest.

Quarless, who was targeted three times, finished with two catches for 22 yards.

The Packers' next game is Thursday at Detroit (Week 13).


Green Bay tight ends not doing much in Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Packers tight ends Andrew Quarless and Brandon Bostick barely made any sort of impact during Sunday's loss to the Vikings in Week 11.

Quarless made a one-handed, circus grab for a 19-yard gain in the third quarter. He was targeted three times and finished the game with 18 yards. He has not had more than 40 yards receiving in a game.

Bostick, who scored last week, caught his only targeted pass for a gain of 26 yards in the second quarter. He has four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown over his last two games.

Andrew Quarless could see a spike in targets Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Packers tight end Andrew Quarless could be a sleeper Fantasy pick for Sunday's contest at home against the Eagles in Week 10.

With Aaron Rodgers sidelined with a collarbone injury, Seneca Wallace took over and targeted Quarless seven times against the Bears in Week 9. He finished with a season-high five catches for 34 yards.

With that said, the Eagles have been pretty stingy against tight ends this season, keeping them out of the end zone in each of the first nine games. Opposing tight ends have averaged 4.78 Fantasy points per game this season.

Although his targets may increase with Wallace under center, Quarless is way too risky to trust. Consider him a low-end option in the majority of Fantasy formats for Week 10.

Andrew Quarless leads Packers with five catches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Packers tight end Andrew Quarless led the team with five catches in the loss to Chicago. They went for just 34 yards, but it was easily Quarless' biggest game this season.

He was targeted seven times, second on the team. Quarless was a popular target in part because quarterback Seneca Wallace lacks the arm strength to throw downfield.

Quarless faces the Eagles in Week 10.


Andrew Quarless not filling Jermichael Finley's role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) In his first game starting in place of the injured Jermichael Finley, Packers tight end Andrew Quarless caught both his targets for 13 yards against Minnesota. Quarless figures to start again Monday against Chicago, but his role won't change. He's primarily a blocker.

Leave Quarless on the waiver wire.


Packers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) The Packers got a slew of offensive contributions in their easy win in Minnesota. Among them, tight end Andrew Quarless caught both his targets for 13 yards, and fullback John Kuhn hauled in one of his two targets for 7 yards.

Quarless started for Jermichael Finley, who's out indefinitely with a neck injury.


A word on Packers tight end Andrew Quarless


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2013) I promised the people in my Friday chat I'd do a little research on Andrew Quarless, so here it is. Quarless was the primary tight end for the Packers following the injury to Jermichael Finley, which makes sense since he was their No. 2 tight end going into last week's game. 

After watching some snaps of his this year I found Quarless to be well sized but not fast. That might be because of knee surgery for a torn ACL in 2012. His hands are all right. 

The reality is that he's no different than Jarrett Boykin was last week: Any opportunity to play a lot with Aaron Rodgers could result in some good numbers. Finley had 5.7 targets per game this year -- a number that could apply to Quarless for the foreseeable future. The only catch is that the Packers have another tight end named Brandon Bostick who could swipe some work, though he's considered fairly raw. 


Andrew Quarless hoping to 'catch a couple passes'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2013) With Packers tight end Jermichael Finley sidelined indefinitely by a neck injury, tight end Andrew Quarless is expected to see a bigger role on offense.

"I didn't want it like this. That's real. But it is what it is. You have to step up like a professional," Quarless said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I'm going to be ready, I'm going to be ready. At the end of the day, I have to be. All I can do is pray for him. The preparation and approach doesn't change."

Quarless is setting the bar high and hoping to make as big of an impact as Finley had on offense for Green Bay.

"He was definitely a big threat lost," Quarless said. "But I can only match the way he was playing with that intensity. But maybe as the game progresses, I can get to that level where they start doubling me, they start thinking about me. Right now, they might not be thinking about No. 81 too much.

"It's not a bad thing. I'll be able to sneak up on them and catch a couple passes."


Andrew Quarless 'almost certainly' will start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2013) With Jermichael Finley dealing with a serious neck injury, the Packers "almost certainly" will start tight end Andrew Quarless on Sunday at Minnesota, reports ESPN.com. But Quarless, who has four catches this season, is better suited to play on the line of scrimmage than in the slot or out wide, as Finley often did, the report said.

Tight ends Brandon Bostick and Jake Stoneburner also figure to play more with Finley sidelined. Tight end Ryan Taylor is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery.


Andrew Quarless contributes as fill-in option


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) Getting more time on the field with Jermichael Finley suffering a concussion in the first quarter, Packers tight end Andrew Quarless turned in his best performance of the season Week 3 at Cincinnati, catching three passes for 21 yards. His five targets were fourth-most on the team.

Finley will get a chance to recover with the team on bye in Week 4. If he's not ready to return Week 5 against Lions, Quarless would again take his spot in the lineup.
