Tim Boyle, QB (DET)

Starts three games in 2021

Boyle completed 61 of 94 passes for 526 yards with three touchdowns and six interceptions over five game appearances in 2021. He added 13 rushing yards on two carries.

On the surface, Boyle was beyond underwhelming as a fill-in starter during the three games that Jared Goff missed this season. The Eastern Kentucky product threw more picks than touchdowns in each appearance while clearing 200 yards once and averaging 5.6 yards per pass attempt, which would have ranked last among starting QBs. However, Goff only ranked 27th in that category with 6.6 YPA, and offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn suggested in early January that he is content with Boyle as a backup quarterback, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. While Boyle is now set to become an unrestricted free agent at year's end, it sounds like both parties may have interest in a reunion for the 2022 campaign.
