A lot can happen this offseason that could benefit Andrew Quarless (who is a free agent himself) and his fantasy value.
First, the Packers starting tight end Jermichael Finley is also a free agent, and although he is coming off a major injury scare (spinal fusion surgery), he may or not stick around in Green Bay. So, any way you slice it, the chances of the Packers retaining both tight ends seem slim.
Complicating things, or perhaps making things cut and dry, is the fact that the Giants are in need of a big-bodied tight end and either Quarless or Finley could be the ideal fit in New York with the Giants hiring ex-Packers QB and tight ends coach Ben McAdoo, as Dave Hutchinson of The Star Ledger reports.
Either way, the chances of Quarless becoming a starter next year appear to be strong—either with the Giants or the Packers. In his time filling in for Finley, Quarless proved he was an adequate replacement. Certainly not great but good, as Quarless recorded 28 receptions for 284 yards and two touchdowns filling in for Finely in the last 10 games of the season. You also have to realize that came without Aaron Rodgers there for most of the time.
Quarless will have some sleeper appeal, but he is likely nothing better than a No. 2 tight end.
