2024 RTSports Outlook

Brissett was the top backup for the Commanders last year and played well when given the chance. He sparked the offense in the three games played. Brissett completed 78.3 percent of his passes and scored three touchdowns without throwing an interception. Brissett is a valuable NFL backup. He has starting experience and success in that role. Plus, he can be used in special packages, as evidenced by the last few seasons. He signed with the Patriots this offseason and seems likely to be the starter to open the season until rookie Drake Maye is ready. Brissett is a top athlete who can make all the throws. He moves around the pocket well and can make plenty of plays with his feet when needed. He struggles with accuracy down the field at times and doesn't take a lot of chances for the big play. 

FANTASY OUTLOOK: If he opens the season as the starter for the Patriots, Brissett might be worth a few starts for fantasy teams. He can make plays with his legs and has a knack for finding the end zone.

RotoBaller's Outlook

New England Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett signed with the organization at the start of free agency, reuniting him with the team that selected him in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of N.C. State. While rookie quarterback Drake Maye is clearly viewed as the quarterback of the future, Brissett is primed to be the starting signal-caller to start the 2024 campaign. His supporting cast consisting of Rhamondre Stevenson, Antonio Gibson, Kendrick Bourne, Ja'Lynn Polk, Demario Douglas, and more doesn't figure to set him up for high-end fantasy weeks, but he could hold early-season value in superflex and two-QB formats. All starters are worth something in those leagues, so Brissett, who has thrown 51 touchdowns to 23 interceptions in his career, is likely to be in starting lineups in 12-team leagues. He projects to produce QB3 or low-end QB2 numbers given his lack of star pass-catchers.

Player Notes
Jun 22 11:33am ET

New England Patriots QB Drake Maye still has a chance to win the starting quarterback job during training camp, even though veteran QB Jacoby Brissett took all of the reps with the first-team offense at the Patriots' mandatory minicamp and was referred to as the starter by offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.

Fantasy Spin: Maye finished minicamp as the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart but would need to clearly outplay Brissett by a wide margin in training camp to earn the starting nod for Week 1's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. For as long Brissett is in a starting role, he should be viewed as a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes because of the lack of offensive weapons on New England's offense. Maye will likely take over as starter before the end of the 2024 regular season and could be viewed as a QB2 option in most fantasy leagues once this happens.

From TheHuddle

Jun 10 2:03pm ET

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett continued working as the starter ahead of rookie Drake Maye at minicamp Monday, June 10.

Fantasy Spin: Maye is still very much expected to be the starter at some point during the 2024 season, but managers may need to wait until training camp to get a better idea of the pecking order in New England. Brissett would be a low-end QB2 for fantasy if he remained the starter.

From TheHuddle

Jun 5 4:53pm ET

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett is currently the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.

Fantasy Spin: Brissett will be competing with Drake Maye for the starting job during training camp but probably will not keep the job long even if he starts Week 1. Fantasy players probably should avoid Brissett this upcoming season.

From TheHuddle

May 31 2:20pm ET

New England Patriots veteran quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who spent a year running offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt's offense with the Cleveland Browns, is definitely ahead of the other QBs on the team during offseason workouts. Brissett has run the offense smoothly and is smart about distributing the football. So far, he's gotten all the No. 1 QB reps in practices open to the media, and it's clear the other QBs, including first-round rookie Drake Maye, look to Brissett for advice and tips on the offense. Maye, the No. 3 overall pick, will likely still make his NFL debut in 2024, but at this point, it would be a surprise if Brissett isn't starting in the Week 1 regular season opener. Maye, who will surely benefit from some time learning from Brissett, should only be drafted in dynasty/keeper leagues this fall.

From RotoBaller

May 31 1:53am ET

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett received all of the No. 1 quarterback reps in practices open to the media, and it 'seems clear' he'll enter training camp as the starting quarterback, in the opinion of The Athletic's Chad Graff.

Fantasy Spin: Brissett is a capable veteran, but even if he starts in Week 1 he's only keeping the position warm until they turn things over to Drake Maye. Brissett did have a few big games running offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt's offense with the Browns in 2022, but he'd be more of a plug-and-play option to cover a bye than someone you'd actually want to carry on your roster.

From TheHuddle

May 20 5:43pm ET

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett received the first snaps during drills at the voluntary workout Monday, May 20.

Fantasy Spin: Brissett will be competing with Drake Maye for the starting job during training camp. Brissett could win the competition, but Maye likely will take over the job at some point during the 2024 season. Brissett can be avoided in fantasy leagues even if he opens the season as the starter.

From TheHuddle

May 20 2:30pm ET

At the New England Patriots' first organized team activity practice on Monday, quarterback Jacoby Brissett took the first repetitions at the position, followed by Bailey Zappe, rookie first-rounder Drake Maye and Joe Milton III. The Patriots took Maye third overall out of North Carolina in last month's NFL draft, but Maye won't be guaranteed the starting gig from Day 1 in his first NFL season this fall. The expectation is that Brissett and Maye will compete for the job in training camp this summer and the preseason, but the Patriots aren't going to rush Maye into the starting role under new head coach Jerod Mayo right away, even though the team has been impressed with the work that Maye has put in so far in trying to learn a new offense. In the bigger picture in 2024, it would be a mild surprise if Maye doesn't at least get some playing time at some point if he opens the year as a backup to Brissett.

From RotoBaller

Apr 30 5:33pm ET

New England Patriots QB Drake Maye and QB Jacoby Brissett will compete for the starting quarterback job during offseason workouts as well as training camp and the best quarterback will start Week 1, according to head coach Jerod Mayo.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if Maye is ready to step in right away and win the job. Maye has more fantasy value than Brissett, but both can be considered No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks at this point.

From TheHuddle

Mar 24 8:50pm ET

New England Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett could absolutely be the team's starting QB next season, according to head coach Jerod Mayo. The Patriots don't have much to offer in the quarterback department right now, which gives Brissett a strong chance. Brissett began his career with the Patriots after being taken by them in the 3rd round of the 2016 Draft. Since then, Brissett has bounced around quite a bit. He has started on multiple teams but seems to lose the starting job as quickly as he gets it. His only competition right now is Bailey Zappe, so Brissett is likely to start right now. However, there is a strong chance that the Patriots use the No. 3 overall pick in the draft to select a franchise quarterback. That being said, Brissett might start the season under center until the rookie is ready to take over.

From RotoBaller

Mar 24 3:23pm ET

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett could 'absolutely' be the starter in 2023, according to head coach Jared Mayo on Sunday, March 24.

Fantasy Spin: It's more likely that the Patriots will select a quarterback at No. 3 overall despite them saying they are open to all options. Brissett would not hold any usable fantasy value if he's the starter.

From TheHuddle

Mar 15 4:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Jacoby Brissett (Commanders) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New England Patriots Friday, March 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated it is a one-year contract worth $8 million.

From TheHuddle

Mar 11 8:50pm ET

The New England Patriots plan to sign veteran free-agent quarterback Jacoby Brissett this week, according to a source. When the teams eventually agree to terms, Brissett is expected to be added for one year and $8 million. It's a reunion in New England for the 31-year-old signal-caller, who was originally taken in the third round by the Patriots in 2016. For now, Brissett will be atop New England's QB depth chart, although a rookie QB that the team takes with the third overall pick in the upcoming draft could quickly unseat Brissett if he proves worthy. Brissett has bounced around the league and has played for five different teams in his eight NFL seasons. He had his best year in 2019 with the Colts, throwing for 2,942 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions in 15 starts. At best, Brissett is going to be a low-end QB2 option in superflex leagues if he's the Patriots starter in 2024.

Mar 11 8:43pm ET

Impending free-agent QB Jacoby Brissett (Commanders) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New England Patriots Monday, March 11, worth $8 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: There is a chance that Brissett will start the season as the starting quarterback next season if they do not want to rush a rookie quarterback into the lineup. He could be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues since he may not start for long.

From TheHuddle

Mar 5 6:00pm ET

The New England Patriots have "real" interest in Washington Commanders impending free-agent quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The Patriots are expected to have competition for him if they sign him, but offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt loved coaching Brissett with the Cleveland Browns in 2022, and the Patriots view the veteran signal-caller as a great locker-room guy who is all about football. In addition to adding a veteran QB like Brissett, the Pats are expected to take a rookie QB with the third overall pick in this year's draft. The 31-year-old was also a third-round pick by the Pats in 2016. He appeared in 16 games (11 starts) in 2022 with Cleveland and threw for 2,608 yards, 12 TDs and six interceptions while completing 64% of his passes. At best, Brissett would be a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he's signed by New England and starts games in 2024.

From RotoBaller

Mar 5 4:03pm ET

Impending free-agent QB Jacoby Brissett (Commanders) is expected to draw the interest of a few teams in free agency, but the New England Patriots' interest in him appears to be 'real,' according to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. Brissett was a third-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2016.

Mar 3 1:33pm ET

Washington Commanders QB Jacoby Brissett, who is a pending free agent, is considered as the top backup quarterback in free agency, according to sources Sunday, March 3.

The Washington Commanders have declared DE Jonathan Allen, TE Cole Turner, LB Andre Jones Jr., OG Andrew Wylie, QB Jacoby Brissett, S Kamren Curl and LB Casey Toohill inactive for Week 18.

Jan 5 4:43pm ET

Washington Commanders DT Jonathan Allen (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 5, and has been ruled out for Week 18. S Kamren Curl (quadriceps) and DE Casey Toohill (shoulder) did not practice and are listed as questionable. OT Andrew Wylie (elbow) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable. QB Jacoby Brissett (hamstring), S Jartavius Martin (chest), DT John Ridgeway (foot) and CB Benjamin St-Juste (concussion) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Washington Commanders DT Jonathan Allen (knee), CB Tariq Castro-Fields (shoulder), CB Kendall Fuller (knee), CB Christian Holmes (concussion), S Kamren Curl (quad), LB Casey Toohill (shoulder) and WR Curtis Samuel (shoulder) did not practice on Thursday, Jan. 4. DL John Ridgeway (foot) and OL Andrew Wylie (elbow) were limited. QB Jacoby Brissett (hamstring), CB Jartavius Martin (chest) and CB Benjamin St-Juste (concussion) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Jan 4 1:20pm ET

NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay writes that he's getting the vibe that a lot of the Washington Commanders' veterans will be rested in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. The Commanders aren't in playoff contention and have nothing to play for besides draft positioning and spoiling the Cowboys' shot at the NFC East title. Quarterback Sam Howell will close out the year starting under center with Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) still injured, but players like receiver Curtis Samuel (hamstring), who didn't practice on Thursday, could be held out in the final game of the season. We'll pass along any concrete news we have on specific players that may be held out of action this weekend for the Commanders if it comes along. On offense, Samuel is the most likely player to be rested.
