2023 Fantasy Outlook
As a rookie, Zappe started two games while starter Mac Jones dealt with an ankle injury, and overall the 2022 fourth-rounder out of Western Kentucky recorded 65 completions on 92 pass attempts for 781 yards with five TDs and three picks in four appearances. Given that coach Bill Belichick hasn't specifically endorsed Jones as the Patriots' starter this coming season, there's been some speculation that Zappe could make a run at the job as Week 1 approaches. That said, a more plausible scenario is that Jones gets an opportunity to get back on track after an uneven 2022 campaign. If, however, the 2021 first-rounder falters or suffers an injury in his third season as a pro, Zappe would be next in line to handle the reins. Read Past Outlooks

Backing up Brissett
QBNew England Patriots
March 12, 2024
Zappe appears set to operate as the No. 2 quarterback behind Jacoby Brissett, who is slated to sign a one-year, $8 million contract with the Patriots, John Keim of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Zappe started New England's final six games of the 2023 season after beating out Mac Jones, who the Patriots recently traded to Jacksonville for a 2024 sixth-round draft pick, posting a 6:7 TD:INT in that span. Given that New England holds the third overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, in what's considered a high-end quarterback class, Zappe could end up further down the depth chart with the potential selection of rookie competition.

Tops depth chart after Jones trade
QBNew England Patriots
March 10, 2024
Zappe is the top quarterback on New England's depth chart heading into the new league year after the team traded Mac Jones to Jacksonville on Sunday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The Patriots are expected to add competition to the quarterback room, be it via the draft, free agency or another trade, but Zappe and Nathan Rourke are the only quarterbacks on the roster with Jones out of the picture. If New England drafts a quarterback with the third overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Zappe could get a chance to compete for the starting job to begin 2024, though he has done little to earn consideration for a long-term starting opportunity.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
With Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham already in the backup mix behind 2021 first-rounder Mac Jones, the Patriots' selection of Zappe in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft raised some eyebrows. However, it's clear that New England saw value in Zappe, who threw a whopping 62 TD passes with Western Kentucky last season. With Stidham having been dealt to the Raiders, the 6-1, 220-pound Zappe will give the franchise a young signal-caller on a rookie contract to groom as Jones' eventual understudy, but in the short-term Hoyer would most likely be the QB to see spot starts if Jones misses time.
