Alters throwing mechanics
QBFree Agent
February 7, 2019
Hackenberg recently explained that his throwing mechanics are improving thanks to coaching from his AAF quarterbacks coach, John Luciew of PennLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 2016 second-round pariah has been given plenty of chances in the NFL, failing to stick with the Jets, Raiders, Eagles and Bengals. Having spent the last few months with the Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football, Hackenberg discovered a mechanical flaw in his throwing motion that was affecting his accuracy. It'll be interesting to see if any NFL teams come calling this offseason to learn if the Penn State product has indeed turned a corner in his development.

Nick Foles is a significant downgrade from Carson Wentz, but perhaps not all is lost for Philadelphia. Foles' last starting season was under Jeff Fisher, who held back Sam Bradford, Jared Goff, and Case Keenum.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
A 2016 second-round pick, Hackenberg entered training camp with a chance to compete against Josh McCown and Bryce Petty for the starting role in New York. McCown ultimately won the job, though he seems to be simply a caretaker until either of the youngsters are ready to grab the mantle (if they grab the mantle). That could be Hackenberg, though he couldn't get on the field last year even as the Jets cycled through three quarterbacks, including Petty, who kept getting hurt. Hackenberg has a strong arm, but accuracy problems followed him from college to the NFL, and this year he must learn a new offense again with the arrival of coordinator John Morton. Hackenberg got good reviews in May OTAs, but he was vastly outplayed by Petty during the preseason.
Drafted in the second round of this year's draft, Hackenberg is not expected to compete for a starting job unless the Jets fail to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Hackenberg had serious accuracy issues in college, but he has a strong arm and some excellent receivers who could make him look a bit better. His fantasy upside is obviously dependent on the Fitzpatrick situation, though even if that doesn't resolve itself, Geno Smith will likely get every opportunity to win the starting job in training camp.
