News: Quarterback Rhett Bomar and tight end Andre Hardy were waived Monday, the Raiders announced. Hardy, the son of former NFL running back Andre Hardy, played basketball in college but hasn't played football since high school. Bomar, who was drafted by the Giants in the fifth round in 2009, hasn't appeared in an NFL game.
Analysis: Neither player is expected to make an impact for a team anytime soon. Leave them off of Fantasy rosters.
News: Minnesota Vikings quarterback Rhett Bomar was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. Blue Earth County Jail spokeswoman Amber Carlson said Bomar was booked about 5:15 a.m. Sunday on third-degree driving while intoxicated. Carlson said Bomar was released from jail and the quarterback was at Monday's practice.
Analysis: The Vikings picked up the 26-year-old quarterback in late December from the New York Giants practice squad. He was a 15th pick of the fifth round in the 2009 draft after playing two seasons at Sam Houston State. Bomar has been getting practice reps behind Donovan McNabb, first-round pick Christian Ponder and Joe Webb. This news does not improve his chances of climbing the depth chart. He should not be owned in Fantasy.
News: Newly-acquired QB Rhett Bomar has a chance to suit up for the Vikings in the Week 16 game against the Eagles if QB Brett Favre (concussion) is unable to play. "We think he has the ability in an emergency situation to maybe help us out, but also we'll look at him for the future," coach Leslie Frazier said. "We'll just see how much we can give him as the week goes on."
Analysis: Bomar as often been compared to Brett Favre, so perhaps he'll have the chance to learn a thing or two from the future Hall of Famer. Owners shouldn't consider him a good Fantasy option even if he somehow sees the field.
News: The Vikings have signed QB Rhett Bomar off of the Giants' practice squad. He's expected to pad their depth at the position.
Analysis: Bomar has often been compared to Brett Favre, so perhaps he'll have the chance to learn a thing or two from the future Hall of Famer. Owners shouldn't consider him a good Fantasy option.
News: The Giants added QB Rhett Bomar to the practice squad on Sunday. Also added by New York was TE Jake Ballard and Sha'reff Rashad.
Analysis: Bomar, a second-year guy out of Sam Houston State, has yet to take a snap in the regular season. Continue to ignore him in Fantasy play for now.
News: The Giants have waived QB Rhett Bomar, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. The team acquired QB Sage Rosenfels Friday night, making him the backup to Eli Manning. Bomar could return to the Giants practice squad if he clears waivers. He was part of the practice squad for most of last season.
Analysis: Bomar was never a serious Fantasy consideration in the first place. Keep him off of rosters.
News: With Giants QB Jim Sorgi placed on IR Tuesday, QB Rhett Bomar is now the official No. 2 behind Eli Manning. The team could still make a move for a veteran QB, however.
Analysis: Bomar, a second-year guy out of Sam Houston State, has yet to take a snap in the regular season and both Giants fans and Manning's Fantasy owners hope things stay that way. Continue to ignore him in Fantasy play for now.
News: Giants QB Rhett Bomar will see extended playing time during Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers with starter Eli Manning (head) and backup Jim Sorgi (shoulder) on the shelf. Bomar will start and is expected take most if not all of the snaps from center, with newly-signed rookie Dominick Randolph the only other quarterback on the roster. "I'm looking forward to it," Bomar told Giants.com. "We have been getting a lot of reps, unequal reps, and things like that just because of people being hurt. It's been good in camp to get those reps. This will be a change of pace for me to go out there and play the whole game. I'm excited, definitely."
Analysis: Bomar was the Giants' No. 3 QB, but could enter the regular season backing up Manning, as Sorgi's return remains a question mark. However, as an inexperienced, short-term backup, Bomar can be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
News: The Giants placed RB Brandon Jacobs and CB Aaron Ross on injured reserve Thursday, ending their seasons. The Giants also announced that they had signed QB Rhett Bomar and DB Sha'reff Rashad from the practice squad. The signing of Bomar and Rashad will allow the Giants to keep Bomar and Rashad under contract. They would have become free agents after the season. Jacobs will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee next week. He played in 15 games and leads the team with 835 yards rushing. Ross missed the first nine games with an injury to his left hamstring. He returned to play four games before reinjuring the hamstring. Bomar was the Giants' fifth-round draft choice in 2009, from Sam Houston State. He completed 4 of 9 passes in the preseason. Rashad was signed as a free agent on May 8. He was waived on Sept. 5 and signed two days later to the practice squad. The Giants filled the open practice squad spots by signing offensive lineman Rueben Riley and WR Bruce Francis.
Analysis: None of these players are worth using in any Fantasy leagues in 2010 besides Jacobs. Ignore them in all leagues.
News: The Giants announced that rookie QB Rhett Bomar signed his rookie deal and will be in the fold for the start of training camp. The Sam Houston State product will battle for the No. 3/emergency job this summer.
Analysis: Bomar has a pretty decent arm but lacks some of the other qualities you like to see in a passer. Luckily, the Giants can take their time in developing him to be a potential backup for Eli Manning. Bomar is only worth a pick in the deepest of rookie-only drafts this summer.
News: The Daily News reports Giants QB Andre Woodson is ready for the competition for the No. 3 spot with rookie Rhett Bomar, who was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. "I know this is the NFL and you've got to compete for your spot," Woodson said Monday. "So that's what I'm doing." Woodson did well at the team's recent mini-camp in which he impressed Tom Coughlin by "(taking) more charge of the drills" and showing some progress from his sometimes shaky rookie year. He also showed off a new body, down 22 pounds from the 242 he weighed when he arrived last spring, and promised - on the orders of the coaching staff - to drop another five.
Analysis: Woodson spent last year on the practice squad but will find it tough to beat out Bomar to be the No. 3 guy behind Eli Manning and David Carr. Still, Bomar could be a candidate for the practice squad this year, which means Woodson could be the No. 3/emergency QB. Still, neither QB has much Fantasy value this season, and both should be ignored in the majority of leagues.
News: The New York Post reports the Giants will start the battle for the No. 3 QB spot behind Eli Manning and David Carr in their first mini-camp in May. Rhett Bomar, a fifth-round pick from Sam Houston State who started 11 games for Oklahoma in 2005 before transferring, will battle Andre Woodson, a sixth-round pick last year out of Kentucky. Woodson was not impressive last summer and spent the season on the practice squad. "We still like Woodson," GM Jerry Reese said. "I know people will start to write him off right away, but that is not true. Who knows how long David Carr will be here? So there will be a lot of competition at that position. It was too much value at the time for us to pass (Bomar) up."
Analysis: Look for Bomar to win the job, but neither QB has much Fantasy value this year. Manning will remain the starter, and Carr should be the No. 2 guy for at least 2009. Ignore Bomar and Woodson in all leagues.
News: The Giants drafted former Oklahoma starter Rhett Bomar in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Bomar threw 10 touchdowns in 12 games as a redshirt freshman at Oklahoma in 2005. He was dismissed by the team in August 2006 for receiving compensation for a job he was not working. Bomar enrolled at Sam Houston and played the past two seasons, throwing 37 touchdowns, including 27 this past season. "It was too much value at the time to pass him up," GM Jerry Reese said, adding that the Giants have not written off Andre Woodson, who spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad. The Giants only kept two quarterbacks on the roster last season - Eli Manning and David Carr.
Analysis: Look for Bomar to compete with Woodson for the No. 3 spot, but neither is worth drafting in any leagues at this time. As long as Manning and Carr are on the roster, there won't be many passing yards available for Bomar or Woodson.
