Stick comes from a small school but showed a lot on the field. He is an accurate quarterback that does well on the move. He is good at moving around the pocket and making plays with his arm or legs. He also is a good downfield thrower with a strong arm. He does tend to try to use his legs too often and coming from a small school could make for a longer learning curve. He will compete for the top backup job in Los Angeles his rookie year.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Stick is an intriguing talent for down the road. He could be the future starter for the Charger.

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Easton Stick is still officially in the running to make the team, but after Thursday's performance, it's hard to imagine how. Stick took over from Cardale Jones in the second half, and the entire offense fell apart. While Jones led four straight scoring drives to start the first half, Stick led two three-and-outs with two first-play interceptions sprinkled in. He was able to guide the backups to a late score to win the game, but the ugliness of the earlier drives was the real takeaway from the evening. Stick may find a way to land on the practice squad, but either way, he definitely doesn't look ready for the big-time yet.
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Easton Stick led his team on the comeback trail on Saturday night against the Seahawks, but he came up just short as the team lost by eight. Stick went 12-for-16, completing 75% of his passes, but he only tallied 82 yards. He did throw a touchdown and ran another one in, which was more than either Tyrod Taylor or Cardale Jones were able to do, but he's still unlikely to win the No. 2 job out of camp. The fifth-round pick still stands a chance at being the franchise quarterback of the future if Philip Rivers decides to hang them up, but for now, he's probably not going to see any measurable playing time in the regular season.
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Easton Stick was the clean-up man for the team again in Week 2 of the preseason, but he didn't do much to impress this time around. Stick went just 5-for-13 through the air for 62 yards and threw an interception. Stick is pretty clearly in third place for the backup job for the Chargers this year, facing off against a pair of former starting quarterbacks trying to extend their careers. While he's shown moments that inspire some interest and hope for his future, he's clearly a few steps behind the other two and only likely to end up on the practice squad.
Los Angeles Chargers rookie Easton Stick completed seven of his 11 pass attempts for 78 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, and he ran twice for a game-high 51 yards while adding a 31-yard rushing score. The rookie out of North Dakota State is looking to push Cardale Jones out the door, trying to secure the No. 3 job behind Philip Rivers and Tyrod Taylor. It's a crowded quarterback room with a lot of pedigree, but Stick is a former college champion who certainly looked like a winner in his debut. He has no immediate fantasy value, but down the road he could be a quarterback of the future for the Bolts.
Los Angeles Chargers rookie quarterback Easton Stick got his first chance in the NFL on Thursday when he was brought in to finish out the first preseason game against the Cardinals. Stick went 7-for-11 for 78 yards, but he did toss one pick on the evening. The North Dakota State alum is not expected to seriously contend for the primary backup position in LA, but with Philip Rivers getting long in the tooth, he could be a long-term play. He'll need to develop quite a ways if he's going to stick in the league, but for now, it's nice to see him getting some reps to learn the speed.
