The Detroit Lions will work out free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (Ravens) on Monday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Lions general manager Bob Quinn is trying to sign veteran backup help rather than rely on untested talent, and Clausen would fit the bill in Detroit. He completed 57 percent of his passes last year in three starts with the Ravens and Chicago Bears. Still, his fantasy value is minimal and he should be considered no better than a "handcuff" pick for Stafford should Clausen make the roster. There are much better quarterbacks out there, however.

Free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (Ravens) had a workout with the Washington Redskins Monday, July 18, according to a source.

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:06:08 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Jimmy Clausen was 26 of 45 for a career-high 281 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. One of those interceptions was a pick-six, which sealed the Kansas City Chiefs' 34-14 win.
Fantasy Tip: Clausen ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) posted decent numbers for yardage and scoring leagues, but 19 incomplete passes and a pick-six doesn't help the overall total look any better.
Fri, 18 Dec 2015 13:51:12 -0800
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he isn't naming a starting quarterback for Week 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Dec. 18, even though QB Matt Schaub (chest) is listed as probable. QB Jimmy Clausen is another option to start against the Chiefs. Clausen took at least half of practice repetitions both Wednesday, Dec. 16, and Thursday, Dec. 17, according to offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Harbaugh said Schaub has a chance to be 100% healthy by Sunday, Dec. 20. It's highly unlikely that QB Ryan Mallett will see playing time Sunday after being signed this week.
Fantasy Tip: Either way you slice it, neither Baltimore quarterback is worth starting on FantasyScore as a deep sleeper against a surging Chiefs defense.
Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:58:34 -0800
Confirming a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) is officially inactive for Week 14's game against the Seattle Seahawks. QB Jimmy Clausen will receive the start.
Fantasy Tip: Schaub ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) should be removed from all fantasy lineups. As a member of the Chicago Bears, Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) went 9-for-17 for 63 yards during a Week 3 relief appearance versus the Seahawks but hasn't played since. He should be avoided in FantasyScore this week.
Sun, 13 Dec 2015 07:06:41 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Jimmy Clausen will start Week 14's game against the Seattle Seahawks, as a result of QB Matt Schaub (chest) being sidelined due to a chest injury. QB Bryn Renner will serve as the Ravens' No. 2 quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is 23-for-40 with 184 passing yards and an interception in two games this season and his last action came as a member of the Chicago Bears during Week 3's game against the Seahawks. Clausen is not a recommended starting option in FantasyScore this week.
Sat, 12 Dec 2015 09:21:52 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) is not expected to play in the Week 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks because of his chest injury. QB Jimmy Clausen likely will start if Schaub is ruled out.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to check the inactive list to see if Schaub ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) or Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will start in Week 14. Neither quarterback has done much this season and should not be starting options for fantasy owners.
Fri, 11 Dec 2015 14:11:12 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) did not practice Friday, Dec. 11, but is questionable for Week 14 against the Seattle Seahawks. If Schaub doesn't play, QB Jimmy Clausen would be the starter.
Fantasy Tip: Schaub ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is a terrible fantasy option even if he plays. Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a bad option if he plays, too. The Seahawks are licking their chops on defense. Pay up for them on FantasyScore.
Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:40:56 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (chest) sat out of practice again Friday, Dec. 11, making it likely that QB Jimmy Clausen starts in Week 14 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Tip: Wait for Schaub's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) official status, but it's not looking good for him. Even if he starts, he shouldn't come anywhere close to a starting lineup this weekend. The same can be said for Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap). Nobody from Baltimore is a safe fantasy play this week, and paying up for Seattle's defense on FantasyScore is a winning strategy this week.
Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:52:30 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (shoulder, knee) is out of practice with shoulder and knee injuries Wednesday, Dec. 9. QB Jimmy Clausen is taking the first-team repetitions.
Fantasy Tip: The Legion of Boom isn't what it used to, but the Seattle Seahawks have to be licking their chops against Schaub ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) or Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap). You'll probably want to downgrade all of Baltimore's offensive weapons, too. Paying up for Seattle's defense on FantasyScore is a solid move.
Wed, 09 Dec 2015 08:18:34 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (head) is "banged up and sore," and head coach John Harbaugh said Schaub and QB Jimmy Clausen could play Sunday, Dec. 13. Schaub will likely be limited in practice this week.
Fantasy Tip: This situation is a mess, and neither quarterback is worth using on FantasyScore against the Seattle Seahawks.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 13:26:34 -0800
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 24, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a torn medial collateral ligament. Free-agent QB Jimmy Clausen (Bears) was subsequently claimed.
Fantasy Tip: Matt "Pick Six" Schaub will start with Flacco out, and Flacco is expected to recover in time for the 2016 season. As for Schaub, he shouldn't be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 10:53:30 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen was released Monday, Nov. 23. The team also promoted QB David Fales from the practice squad to the active roster.
Fri, 09 Oct 2015 10:26:36 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) is questionable for Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QB Jimmy Clausen (undisclosed) is also questionable.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is expected to play at less than 100% and isn't a good start on FantasyScore.
Fri, 25 Sep 2015 10:03:24 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) and WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) have both been ruled out for Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach John Fox. QB Jimmy Clausen will make the start.
Fantasy Tip: We already knew Cutler was likely to be out. Clausen ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will probably be a game manager for this one against a defense that's getting key cog Kam Chancellor back. Avoid Clausen. Chicago's other receivers are also beat up, leaving Martellus Bennett ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) as your safest FantasyScore pick from Chicago's offense in this one.
Mon, 21 Sep 2015 14:37:16 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) will miss at least two weeks because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 2, according to sources. Jimmy Clausen will be the starting quarterback for the time being.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler likely will not be rushed back since hamstring injuries can linger if they do not heal properly. Clausen has not played much in the last few seasons and should not be a fantasy option at this point.
Sun, 20 Sep 2015 16:30:38 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen was pressed into action in the Week 2 game against the Arizona Cardinals with QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) leaving with a hamstring injury. Clausen completed 14 of his 23 passes for 121 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
Fantasy Tip: Clausen ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) could be forced to start if Cutler is forced to miss games. He is not a recommended FantasyScore option, especially with Alshon Jeffery banged up and nursing an injury.
Fri, 11 Sep 2015 13:44:20 -0700
Chicago Bears LB Sam Acho (illness) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers. LB Jonathan Bostic (ankle) is questionable, while OT Jermon Bushrod (back), QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and DT Eddie Goldman (concussion) are probable. Acho, Bushrod and Porter didn't practice Friday, Sept. 11. Bostic was limited, while Clausen and Goldman practiced in full.
Thu, 10 Sep 2015 15:00:22 -0700
Chicago Bears LB Sam Acho (illness) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 10. LB Jonathan Bostic (ankle) was limited, while QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and DT Eddie Goldman (concussion) practiced in full.

Chicago Bears LB Sam Acho (illness) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9. LB Jonathan Bostic (ankle) was limited during practice, while QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and DT Eddie Goldman (concussion) fully participated in practice.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:24:06 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) is dealing with a concussion, according to head coach John Fox.
Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:20:28 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will head into the offseason as the team's No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart, but head coach John Fox said there will be an "open competition" at the quarterback spot between Cutler and QB Jimmy Clausen during training camp and offseason workouts. The current coaching staff and general manager Ryan Pace have nothing vested in Cutler, and they've made it clear that money isn't the sole driver of their decisions.
Fantasy Tip: We find it hard to believe that Cutler won't eventually win the job over Clausen, who Fox also coached with the Carolina Panthers. Cutler will have to earn it, though, and his leash may become short during the season if he struggles. The loss of one of his favorite targets, Brandon Marshall, may hurt Cutler's overall production, too. Bottom line: Cutler is a QB2, at best, with room to move up if he works hard and gets himself in the good graces of his new staff.
Fri, 06 Mar 2015 08:35:41 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen re-signed with the team, per a league source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:53:07 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and S Chris Conte (back) are out for Week 17. DE Jared Allen (ribs), CB Albert Louis-Jean (hamstring) and DT Jay Ratliff (knee) are questionable. DE David Bass (knee), DT Ego Ferguson (ankle), OG Kyle Long (hip) and WR Marquess Wilson (knee) are probable.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 11:37:29 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 16 and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Fantasy Tip: Jay Cutler is expected to start the final regular season game with Clausen out. Cutler has a favorable matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, but should be seen as a low-end No. 1 quarterback with some upside on FantasyScore at $5,555.
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 16:34:36 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler hopes to stay with the team beyond the 2014 season. Cutler signed a seven-year, $126.7 million extension a few months ago and was benched Wednesday, Dec. 17, in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen.
Fantasy Tip: While Cutler obviously isn't an option on FantasyScore for Week 16, the possibility remains that he will start again next week. Clausen ($3,500) should only be rostered if you're looking to spend big at other positions.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:34:59 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen will get the start in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, as the team has elected to bench QB Jay Cutler.
Fantasy Tip: Clausen's FantasyScore salary is $3,500 (or just 7.0% of the cap), but he is also facing a strong pass defense. While tempting to take Clausen for the salary savings, he isn't likely to do much against the Lions. Start him at your own peril.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:34:54 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be benched in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Don't even think about going with Clausen ($3,500) at FantasyScore against a strong Lions defense. You can downgrade all of the Bears' offensive weapons surrounding Clausen this week, too.

Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen has impressed the team with how well he has handled preparation and is likely to make the team. "No. 1 is how he handled the room. That room is hugely important; the chemistry, the karma, whatever you want to call it," head coach Marc Trestman said. "In that room, the communication's got to be good. Jimmy's done a very good job, very maturely fit in and taken the place of trying to learn and work to learn the offense. He's grinded at it. He spent long hours here. He's had help from the guys in the room to get him to the place he is today."
Wed, 11 Jun 2014 12:04:42 -0700

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jimmy Clausen was brought in to create competition for QBs David Fales and Jordan Palmer and was not necessarily an indication that he is dissatisfied with either of them. "I told (Palmer) we were going to bring in another quarterback who had some experience, and that we were going to continue to keep the competition open on a daily basis," Trestman said. The Bears will re-evaluate the quarterback situation at the end of OTAs.
