Los Angeles Chargers
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Stick was mediocre at best after taking over in Week 14 last year after Justin Herbert was lost for the season. He finished with a 6.9 average target depth and 6.5 YPA with all three of his TD passes coming in his first start -- a 63-21 loss at the Raiders. He returns this season to back up Herbert again, though he will do so with an unimpressive group of receivers, and with new coach Jim Harbaugh and new running backs Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins, the Chargers are likely to be more run-heavy this season anyway. Stick’s mobility gives him a bit of upside (nearly 30 rushing yards per game last season), but if Herbert goes down again, the Chargers likely won’t ask Stick to do much. Read Past Outlooks

Re-signs with Los Angeles

March 15, 2024
The Chargers re-signed Stick on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
The North Dakota State product is now in line to remain in Los Angeles after agreeing to a new deal with the Chargers. Stick appeared in five games (four starts) for the Chargers in 2023, throwing for 1,129 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He's expected to remain a serviceable backup quarterback option if Justin Herbert were to go down in 2024.

NFL Free Agency: Dust Settles on Contract Details

Jerry Donabedian looks at details for all the big free-agent contracts and notices that age seems to matter as much as skill when it comes to running backs.
Latest Fantasy Rumors
Won't have top target Thursday
QBLos Angeles Chargers
December 14, 2023
Stick will be forced to operate without Keenan Allen in the quarterback's first NFL start Thursday night against the Raiders, as the talented wideout will miss the game with a heel injury, Khris Rhim of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Stick acquitted himself fairly well by the numbers when handling emergency duty in Week 14 against the Broncos after Herbert exited, completing 13 of 24 passes for 179 yards without a touchdown or interception. However, he'll be missing a significant asset Thursday against a Raiders defense that's played well against the pass at home, although the return of Joshua Palmer from injured reserve and Austin Ekeler's elite pass-catching skills out of the backfield could certainly help keep the Chargers' air attack afloat.

2019
Stick signed a modest one-year, $1.8 million deal this offseason presumably to back up Justin Herbert after spending his first couple of campaigns as the team's third-string option. As a result, the 2019 fifth-round pick has played just two regular-season snaps thus far in his NFL career, but he does have some notable positive traits, including a level of mobility that make him a dual-threat signal-caller. Now that Chase Daniel is no longer on the roster, expect Stick and 2023 rookie Max Duggan to compete for the top backup spot behind the Chargers' Pro Bowler.
Since being drafted in the fifth-round in 2019 by the Chargers, Stick has played just two snaps during his brief NFL career. With Justin Herbert emerging as one of the league's best quarterbacks and the team signing 12-year veteran Chase Daniel prior to the 2021 NFL season to be his backup, Stick is currently the third option under center for Los Angeles.
Stick made his first appearance in the NFL this past season since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, completing one pass over the course of two snaps. The 25-year-old will now compete with veteran Chase Daniels for the top backup job behind the Chargers' rising young franchise quarterback, Justin Herbert.
A healthy scratch for the entirety of his rookie campaign, Stick's path to playing time took a major hit after the Chargers selected Justin Herbert No. 6 overall in the 2020 Draft. The 2019 fifth-round pick could ultimately see a second straight season as a third-string backup despite being on the NFL roster.
The 2019 fifth-rounder will compete with Tyrod Taylor and Cardale Jones for the Chargers' backup QB job behind Philip Rivers. Stick wasn't a particularly impressive passer during his collegiate career, failing to throw for over 3,000 yards in any of his three seasons as a starter. He did, however, run for over 600 yards each of those years and put together a respectable 5.9 yards per carry average. It's possible Stick could be used similar to how the Saints deploy Taysom Hill due to his unique athleticism, but it remains to be seen if the North Dakota State alum can be realistically expected to develop into Rivers' heir apparent.
