2019 Fantasy Outlook
Fales hasn't shown much promise in the preseason, but Tom Savage's most recent concussion puts the backup job behind Matthew Stafford up for grabs. Josh Johnson was brought in to give him some competition, and it so far it seems like Fales is going to lose this battle. Read Past Outlooks

October 13, 2019
Fales is set to become the team's backup after the Jets released Luke Falk on Sunday, Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The team elected to let Falk loose just a week after he started a game for them. False got another shot with the Jets on Oct. 4, and, as evidenced by this news, has earned the role to back up Sam Darnold for Sunday's game. It will be Darnold's first game after recovering from mononucleosis, so Fales could be thrust in the game should Darnold suffer a setback.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2015
2014
Fales faces competition from Bryce Petty to be the Dolphins No. 3 quarterback behind Ryan Tannehill and Brock Osweiler. Fales saw the field only once in the 2017 season, due to a slew of injuries in Miami's quarterback room. The 27-year-old is not expected to see nearly as much on-field action in 2018.
The Bears spent a sixth-round draft pick on Fales last April, and were pleased enough by his performance in training camp to keep him around as their third quarterback to open 2014. However, when injuries at other positions compromised the team’s depth, Fales was one of the Bears’ first cuts, and after clearing waivers, he ended up spending most of the season on the practice squad. With a new regime taking over this season, Fales will effectively face an open camp competition with undrafted rookie Shane Carden for No. 3 quarterback duties, should the Bears elect to keep more than one backup.
After an accomplished career at San Jose State, Fales was selected by the Bears in the sixth round of May's draft. While he'll technically be afforded the opportunity to compete with Jordan Palmer and Jimmy Clausen for backup duties behind starting quarterback Jay Cutler, Fales is more likely to stick with the Bears as a developmental No. 3 quarterback or as a practice squad player.
