2018 Fantasy Outlook
The second-year triggerman out of Pitt should benefit from a full year in the league and an offseason to get acquainted to life in the pros. A quarterback room with rookie Josh Allen and largely untested free-agent acquisition AJ McCarron could have a fluid depth chart in the early going. Allen is certainly the quarterback of the future, but who is the quarterback of the present? In all likelihood, it'll be McCarron to start the season, but Peterman should have an opportunity to challenge for the job. Read Past Outlooks

Headed for backup duty
QBBuffalo Bills
September 12, 2018
Peterman will serve as the Bills' backup quarterback after Josh Allen was named the team's starting signal-caller for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite a much-maligned 2017 campaign that included a five-interception half against this same Chargers squad the Bills face in Week 2, Peterman emerged from training camp as Buffalo's top quarterback, beating out Allen and the since-departed AJ McCarron for those honors. Though he seemed to show some increased comfort behind center during the preseason, Peterman reverted to his rookie-year from in the Bills' embarrassing 47-3 loss to the Ravens, completing just five of 18 passes for 24 yards and tossing two interceptions before being pulled in the third quarter. Allen didn't provide much better production upon replacing Peterman, but it appears the Bills are inclined to let the No. 7 overall pick learn on the fly with Peterman providing little evidence to date that he's an NFL-caliber starter. Over his five career regular-season appearances, Peterman owns a 2:7 TD:INT and has completed just 43.2 percent of his passes. He's also been pulled early in all three of the games he's started.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Peterman was regarded by some pundits as the most "pro-ready" quarterback in this year's draft, but waited until the fifth round and pick No. 171 to be selected by the Bills. The organization has shown support to incumbent Tyrod Taylor, but drafting Peterman opens the door to future competition.
