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.

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
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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
Huddle Up: Kizer's fantasy value is limited to dynasty formats at this point.
Posted: 11/19/2017 2:04pm ET
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Posted: 10/18/2017 8:08am ET
Huddle Up: The Browns take on the Tennessee Titans this week, but Kizer doesn't have much value outside of dynasty leagues.
Posted: 10/17/2017 10:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Things are a mess in Cleveland, and a year that was supposed to see positive strides has arguably seen regression -- a difficult thing coming off a 1-15 season. Jackson pulling the plug on Kizer in favor of Kevin Hogan felt like a panic move, and letting Kizer get more reps seems sensible. Nothing is official yet, but be ready to scoop up the rookie if you're in a bad spot at the position.
Posted: 10/1/2017 1:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer has thrown for less than 200 yards in two games this season and has thrown eight interceptions in four games. He will be facing a solid New York Jets defense next week and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/24/2017 1:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer made things happen in the loss, but he also made a lot of mistakes. He has some long-term fantasy appeal, but right now he should be considered as a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues. The Browns host the Bengals in Week 4.
Posted: 9/17/2017 4:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer left the game in the second quarter due to migraines. After being cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol, he was permitted to return in the third quarter. He said after the game that the headaches are hereditary and he received medication to quell the symptoms. It was an ugly performance, though, and he isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues in Week 3 at Indianapolis.
Posted: 9/10/2017 1:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer played well in his first regular season game and should continue to improve. He could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues but should stay on the bench next week when he faces a tough Baltimore Ravens defense.
Posted: 8/28/2017 1:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer appears to be Cleveland's quarterback of the future, at least in the eyes of Jackson. He has shown promise this preseason and adds an extra dimension to the offense with his running ability. That being said, do not draft him as more than a bye-week replacement or a QB2 in two-quarterback leagues.
Posted: 8/27/2017 12:39pm ET
Huddle Up: In an ideal world, Kizer would get at least half of a season to adjust to the pro game, but Cleveland is from a perfect situation for any quarterback. However, there is no questioning the rookie's talent and he does have some talent to work with at receiver as well as a strong running game, so he could have some appeal to owners during bye weeks. As far as Week 1 is concerned, however, Pittsburgh figures to be a popular streaming D/ST option.
Posted: 8/27/2017 8:04am ET
Huddle Up: KIzer finished 6-of-18 for 93 yards with no touchdowns and one interception, but he didn't get much help from his supporting cast either, as Kenny Britt dropped a pass at the Bucs' 5 and Duke Johnson fumbled the ball away at the Bucs' 10. The rookie's running ability will make him worthy of matchup-based starts during the season, but he figures to have a rough first season as a bit of a raw passer, making him more of a low-end QB2.
Posted: 8/26/2017 8:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer didn't exactly wow in his start, and it remains to be seen if he will be named the starter for Week 1. Even if he wins the job, he doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues.
Posted: 8/23/2017 5:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer has played well at times during the preseason, but he may struggle early in the season since he would be a rookie starter. Kizer likely will be selected in keeper leagues but should be avoided in most standard leagues.
Posted: 8/23/2017 5:58am ET
Huddle Up: So much for that Brock Osweiler support. Kizer has upside, but he may not have the pieces around him to bust out as a rookie. He's a dynasty option for now, and he should sneak into two-QB leagues.
Posted: 8/21/2017 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer followed up his very impressive debut with a fine showing here, as he also engineered two scoring drives in his four possessions. While it doesn't seem like he'll get the first crack at the starting quarterback gig to open up the campaign, Kizer is certainly flashing notable potential for when he does receive the opportunity to start down the road.
Posted: 8/11/2017 7:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Jackson is pumping the brakes on Kizer, and fantasy owners should do the same. He has a big arm and intriguing upside, but he only needs to owned in keeper formats for now.
Posted: 8/10/2017 8:30pm ET
Huddle Up: The performance was encouraging, but Kizer still has a long way to go before he needs to be on the fantasy radar outside of keeper leagues.
Posted: 8/3/2017 6:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if he wins the starting job, Kizer wouldn't be more than a late-round flier in redraft leagues. He is a much more intriguing prospect in keeper formats.
Posted: 7/27/2017 5:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer may have had a nice first day of training camp, but that doesn't mean he should start vaulting up fantasy draft boards. More likely than not, he won't enter the new season as the team's starting quarterback, and even if he were to become the starter at some point, he wouldn't be a legitimate option in just about all leagues until he proves himself.
Posted: 7/12/2017 8:18am ET
Huddle Up: Kizer has tools, and there is always the possibility of a rookie making a big splash like Dak Prescott last year or RG III several years ago. However, the supporting cast around Kizer doesn't provide as much excitement as some of the other successful rookies in previous years. He could be worth a flyer as a backup if you land a stud QB, but he's better served in dynasty formats.
Posted: 7/8/2017 6:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Njoku is raw, but he should still see plenty of reps as a rookie thanks to a lack of competition. He is worth a flier in the final rounds of redraft leagues, and he needs to be stashed in all keeper formats.
Posted: 6/25/2017 1:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Kizer moves up to the top of the depth chart. Kizer should start some games this season even if he does not win the job out of camp. Owners in standard leagues should avoid whoever is the starting quarterback for the Browns this season, but Kizer should have value in keeper leagues if he is the starter.
Posted: 6/13/2017 6:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer will compete for the starting quarterback job during training camp but probably needs more time before he is ready to be the full-time starter. There is a chance that Kizer starts at some point in 2017, but he should only have value in keeper leagues.
Posted: 6/12/2017 3:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Kessler appears to still be the leading candidate for the starting job but will continue to compete with Osweiler and Kizer during training camp. Kizer appears to be performing well so far and could be the starter at some point this season. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Browns quarterback situation no matter who starts.
Posted: 5/31/2017 12:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer is expected to compete for the starting job during training camp but likely is a year or two away from starting. He would not have a lot of value even if he wins the job, so owners can avoid him in standard leagues. He will have some value in keeper leagues since he could be the quarterback of the future for the Browns.
Posted: 5/27/2017 12:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job but likely will be an underdog in the competition. Owners in fantasy leagues probably should avoid him even if he wins the starting job. Kizer could have some value in keeper leagues because he appears to be the quarterback of the future for the Browns.
Posted: 5/26/2017 6:27pm ET
Huddle Up: It still seems like a reach for Kizer to open the year as a starter, but he is going to have his chance to show his stuff at some point. He has all the physical traits you want in an NFL quarterback and is worth stashing in keeper formats.
Posted: 5/25/2017 8:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer is a longshot to start as a rookie, but his long-term potential makes him worth stashing in keeper formats.
