ANALYSIS
Finley had been traded from Cincinnati to Houston in March, but the Texans also brought in Jeff Driskel and preferred what they saw in Driskel. Originally selected by the Bengals in the fourth round of the 2019 Draft, Finley will be subject to waivers before he's free to sign with another team.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Finley got the starting nod for three games in 2019 in an attempt to see if the Bengals had much to work with in the post-Andy Dalton era, or if instead they'd have to allocate a significant draft asset to secure their future quarterback. Alas for Finley, Door No. 2 was the correct answer. In his three games, Finley completed 41 of 87 passes for 474 yards, good for 5.4 yards per attempt. Not too much was expected when they took Finley in the fourth round as a 24-year old rookie, and "not too much" was what they received. Finley will serve as Joe Burrow's primary backup in 2020, and the Bengals sincerely hope they won't have to break glass in the case of emergency to use Finley.
Finley was the only quarterback that the Bengals brought in for pre-draft workouts, so it's not a surprise that they selected him with the second pick of the fourth round. But he isn't an obvious heir apparent for Andy Dalton, who has two years remaining on his deal with the Bengals. Jeff Driskel remains on the team and could even be the primary backup over Finley to begin the season. Finley threw for 3,928 yards in his senior season at North Carolina State, averaging 8.1 yards per attempt. His arm strength is considered average and he doesn't offer much mobility.
