    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer or a veteran quarterback could be starting for the Browns in Week 1 if head coach Hue Jackson has his way. Jackson said it would be best to not start a rookie quarterback right away, even if Cleveland chooses that player with the No. 1 overall draft pick. Jackson added that the Browns could pursue a quarterback in free agency.

    Huddle Up: The Browns are widely expected to indeed select a gunslinger with their first pick, but they do have the salary cap to pursue any free agent at any position, including Kirk Cousins. The bottom line is anyone not named Kirk Cousins who starts for the Browns should not be viewed as an every-week fantasy starter.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 18-for-36 for 182 yards and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has gone three straight games with at least two interceptions and has struggled for most of the season. He should start again next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 1:00pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has thrown four touchdowns and five interceptions over the last three games and will be facing a solid Chicago Bears defense. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 12:27pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Kizer was added to the injury list Thursday but does not appear to be in any danger of missing Week 16. Kizer has struggled for most of the season and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 11:43am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will continue to be the starting quarterback, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Much of Kizer's rookie campaign has been forgettable, including the Week 15 shellacking at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens. Kizer surrendered another three turnovers in the loss but Jackson is sticking with his quarterback in another lost season for the Browns. The rookie can safely be dropped if he hasn't been already.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 2:35pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 20-for-37 for 146 yards and two interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15. He also rushed for 35 yards on seven carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has thrown at least two interceptions in six games this season and has 19 interceptions on the season. He probably will start the final two games but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 4:17pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 20 of his 28 pass attempts for 214 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Green Bay Packers and he ran twice for seven yards but he was unable to secure his first NFL win.

    Huddle Up: The three touchdowns were a career high, and it was just his second multi-TD of the season. Still, he came up short in overtime looking for his first victory. He has shown some improvement lately, but the results on the scoreboard remain the same - losses.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 4:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed just 15 of his 32 pass attempts for 215 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: The rookie quarterback also rushed five times for a team-high 46 yards, but he was the only effective ball carrier for the winless Browns and he also lost a fumble. He is only worth a look as a low-end QB2 in the deepest of fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers heading into Week 14 and beyond.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 1:48pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 18 of his 31 pass attempts for 268 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Kizer also added a rushing touchdown, finishing with nine totes for 39 yards. He'll look to keep improving in Week 13 on the road against the Chargers, but for now he remains nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 10:52am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (head) has been cleared to return to the team's Week 12 game.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has thrown only two touchdowns in his last six games entering Week 12 and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/20/2017 5:55am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will start for the rest of the season, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Kizer's fantasy value is limited to dynasty formats at this point.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 2:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will remain the team's starter in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Hue Jackson confirmed Sunday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Kizer will meet Jackson's former employer, the Cincinnati Bengals, next Sunday. Even though he is confirmed as the starter, he is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in the deepest of fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers at this point.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 2:56pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 17, and he is off the injury report for Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has a difficult matchup since the Jaguars rank No. 1 in the NFL against the pass with just 165.1 yards per game allowed, six touchdowns, 11 interceptions and 35 sacks. He is only worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues as a QB2 in leagues using two starters.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 2:37pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has accounted for three touchdowns in the last two games but has thrown for at least 200 yards in only one of his last five games. Owners in all leagues should avoid Kizer because of his tough matchup.

  • Posted: 11/15/2017 2:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Kizer might be fine for Sunday, but he'll be facing the No. 1 pass defense in the NFL when the Jaguars visit. Jacksonville allowed 165.1 yards per game with just six touchdowns allowed through nine games. Kizer is even a borderline fantasy play as a low-end QB2 in two-quarterback formats.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 12:03pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer appeared to be more vocal with the defense and special teams throughout the Week 10 loss to the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Hue Jackson. The rookie is seemingly embracing his role as a leader.

    Huddle Up: From a fantasy standpoint Kizer has actually been decent this year, thanks in large part to his running ability. Turnovers have been an issue, though. He's thrown at least one interception in all but one of the eight games in which he's played. Still, he's not a terrible backup fantasy quarterback pickup.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 12:23pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (rib) went to the locker room after suffering a rib injury in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Kizer will miss more time. Cody Kessler took over as the starting quarterback in Week 10 but is not a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 9:44am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 18-for-34 for 179 passing yards in Week 8's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, while being sacked three times. He also collected 18 yards on five rushing attempts, including a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: On a positive note, Kizer did not throw any interceptions and was not pulled from the game prematurely. The Browns have a bye next week and Kizer is expected to remain the starter when the team returns to action against the Detroit Lions in Week 10 but he is not worth starting in any fantasy format.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 6:34am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was named the Week 8 starter Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Kizer shouldn't be anywhere near starting lineups in fantasy, and he has a rough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings this week.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 11:47am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was benched in the third quarter of the team's Week 7 game and has been replaced by QB Cody Kessler.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has been benched in each of his last three starts, so it is not known who will be the Browns starting quarterback moving forward. Owners in all fantasy leagues should avoid all of the Browns quarterbacks.
