News: The Colts waived quarterback Chandler Harnish on Tuesday.
Analysis: Harnish, who was Mr. Irrelevant in the 2012 Draft, did not appear in a game this season and poses minimal Fantasy appeal at this point. Continue to ignore him in all formats.
News: Northern Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnish, who was taken with the 253rd and final pick of the draft, didn't just get a title and a vacation as this year's Mr. Irrelevant. He got a chance to play for his favorite NFL team and potentially be a backup for Andrew Luck. Harnish set 30 school records at Northern Illinois, was a two-time all-Mid-American Conference selection, a three-time academic all-league choice and was chosen as the league's MVP. He led the Huskies to the league title and their fourth straight bowl game in 2011. He finished his career with 8,944 yards passing, completed 61.9 percent of his passes with 68 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He also ran for 2,238 yards and 24 TDs and his 11,927 yards in total offense rank third all-time in league history. "It is relevant because otherwise you wouldn't burn a pick on somebody," Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. "This person we took had tremendous success in the Mid-American Conference. He's got ability, and he was higher on our board than where we took him."
Analysis: Watch out, Luck -- here comes Harnish! OK probably not, but he's an accomplished passer who will provide good depth for the Colts. He'll battle to back up Luck and isn't worth a pick in any Fantasy league.
