Benched in AAF

February 26, 2019
Hackenberg has been benched in favor of Zach Mettenberger after making three starts for the Memphis Express in the Alliance of American Football, Dylan Rubino of reports.
Hackenberg hoped a change in throwing mechanics would help salvage his football career, but his work with a quarterbacks coach hasn't fixed an inability to read defenses and stay calm under pressure. The Jets' 2016 second-round pick went 0-3 as a starter for Memphis, completing 51.6 percent of his passes for 4.5 yards per attempt, with no touchdowns and three interceptions. Mettenberger threw for two touchdowns after he replaced Hackenberg in the second half of Saturday's 21-17 loss to the Orlando Apollos. It's hard to imagine Hackenberg drawing any attention from the NFL in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
