    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was the third quarterback in the rotation during drills Tuesday, June 13, but worked with the first-team offense during his snaps. Kizer has displayed excellent physical skills and is picking up the offense quickly.

    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.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler likely will continue to be the leading quarterback during drills at the upcoming minicamp even though head coach Hue Jackson said he considered changing the quarterback rotation. Kessler has been followed by QBs Brock Osweiler, DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan during offseason workouts.

    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.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer has received some snaps with the first-team offense during organized team activities because the coaching staff needs to see more of him on the field than the other quarterbacks, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    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.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer plans to work with throwing coach Tom House leading up to training camp.

    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.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer said he has been glued to head coach Hue Jackson, and Jackson said he has to find out more about Kizer than any of the other quarterbacks on the roster. 'He's not going to get too far away from me, I know that,' Jackson said. 'He's done a good job. He just has to keep getting better. He's improved from day to day.'

    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.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer worked mainly with the third-team offense during OTAs Wednesday, May 24, but he did rotate in with the starters.

    Huddle Up: Kizer is a longshot to start as a rookie, but his long-term potential makes him worth stashing in keeper formats.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will receive a lot of snaps during offseason workouts because he needs the work, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Kizer will have a chance to win the starting job but probably is at least a year away from playing. He should be avoided in all standard leagues but could be a late-round pick in keeper leagues because of his potential.

    Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer is 'very coachable,' according to head coach Hue Jackson, and Kizer said he is confident he can become a more accurate thrower.

    Huddle Up: Kizer has all the physical traits you look for in an NFL quarterback, and he should have a chance to start relatively soon. He is a boom-or-bust stash candidate in keeper leagues.

    Cleveland Browns rookie QB DeShone Kizer will be given time to adjust to the NFL and will not feel pressure to take over the starting job right away, according to executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. 'He's a young man and he's going to have a long time that he's with us and in this league,' Brown said. 'If things go the way I'm sure he's planning on [them going] and the way we hope it goes, we don't have to rush it.'

    Huddle Up: Kizer has a relatively easy path to the Browns' starting position with the not-so-threatening likes of Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan standing in his way. He will need time to get used to the NFL though. Don't expect anything close to a Dak Prescott-like rookie campaign from Kizer.

    The Cleveland Browns selected Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Kizer could be a starting option for the Browns as soon as this season, but owners should avoid him in 2017 even if he starts. Owners in keeper leagues may consider him as a late-round option because he could become a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the future.
