2019 Fantasy Outlook
Minnesota possesses one of the NFL's least enviable collections of second-string quarterback options, with Mannion, Kyle Sloter and rookie Jake Browning logging a combined one NFL start. Kirk Cousins hasn't missed a game since taking over as the starting quarterback for Washington at the beginning of the 2015 season, meaning it's not likely that Mannion will be thrown into action for anything more than mop-up duty. It would not be a promising outlook if he were to see significant playing time, going up against an inter-division schedule that includes the No. 1 scoring defense from last year in Chicago, Detroit with arguably the best defensive line in the NFL, as well as the Packers, who added Za'Darius Smith and Adrian Amos while investing first-round picks in Darnell Savage Jr. and Rashan Gary.

Solid third preseason game
QBMinnesota Vikings
August 25, 2019
Mannion was 6-of-9 for 57 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's preseason win over Arizona.
Despite a ho-hum preseason, Mannion still appears set to begin the season as the No. 2 quarterback. Kyle Sloter has played well in the preseason, so it's possible the two could be jockeying for position on the depth chart during the regular season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
After being taken in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Mannion has just one start since Jared Goff was taken No. 1 overall the next year. Mannion is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and he won't start in 2018 as long as Goff is healthy.
The 2015 third-round pick has appeared in just two games and attempted only 13 passes the past two seasons without a single start. Mannion projects to open 2017 as Jared Goff's backup, and if things go according to plan, Mannion won't see the field. The Rams had a league-worst passing and scoring offense last season, so even if Mannion is forced into duty, it isn't a favorable fantasy situation. Additionally, with the franchise committed to Goff, Mannion's long-term value is low with Los Angeles.
A third-round pick in 2015, Mannion threw for 31 yards on a 6-of-7 performance in one garbage time appearance in his rookie season. Mannion is in a tough spot, however, as Case Keenum and Jared Goff are ahead of him on the depth chart, and Nick Foles is still under contract. This is increasingly looking like a wasted pick for the Rams, as the chances of Mannion ever seeing the field in Los Angeles are slim, if he even makes the roster in 2016.
Mannion will likely need to fight for a spot on the Rams' 53-man roster, but the team spending a third-round selection on him bodes well for potential opportunities in the future. He’ll likely battle Austin Davis and/or Case Keenum for the third quarterback spot, but questions remain on starter Nick Foles' viability as a No. 1 quarterback. St. Louis is hoping they have found a pro-ready quarterback in the 6-foot-6 Mannion, but his prospects as a future starting quarterback are not that high.
