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

Works out with Detroit

Peterman recently held a workout with the Lions, a source told Field Yates of ESPN.
It was Peterman's first audition with another team since the Bills cut him loose Monday following a disastrous season-and-a-half-long run with the organization. Though Peterman possesses an ideal frame (6-foot-2, 225 pounds) for a quarterback and is just 24 years old, the tape he's put out thus far in his brief career suggests he's not a capable NFL backup or a developmental prospect worth keeping on a 53-man roster. If he finds a new home somewhere this season, it will most likely be as a member of the practice squad.

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.
