Broncos | Brock Osweiler practices in full Thursday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 15:35:11 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler was a limited participant on Wednesday, so this development should point to him starting opposite the Bengals on Sunday. However, he's really just an option for two-quarterback formats, though he could prove to be useful in such leagues after a surprisingly solid showing against the Patriots in Week 10.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler not full go

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 14:45:22 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Denver's losing streak has not ceased with the change to Osweiler at quarterback. He has not proven to be a quality fantasy quarterback either. That goes for his whole career, not just his starts this season. He should not be started this week.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler to remain starter

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 13:05:30 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has thrown for 429 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in his last two games but likely will remain the starter until Paxton Lynch is healthy. Owners should be able to find better options and can avoid Osweiler.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler to start again

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 12:06:34 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback against the New England Patriots in Week 10, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler had problems during his first start of the season in Week 9, but it appears he will start at least one more week. The Patriots defense has struggled at times this season, but owners in all leagues should not consider Osweiler as a starting option this week.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler struggles in start

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:58:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler completed 19 of his 38 pass attempts for 208 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler took over under center for the struggling Trevor Siemian, but it was more of the same. The offense struggled early on, there were plenty of turnovers and the quality of offensive line play continued to be subpar.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler to start

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 08:12:45 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler was named the starter in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: The Philadelphia Eagles provide a great matchup for Osweiler, but he hasn't shown much in his previous play to give him much fantasy luster. If you need to cover a bye week in a two-QB league, maybe he's a one-week option.

Broncos | Denver QB change unclear

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 07:35:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler would be the replacement for QB Trevor Siemian, according to sources for NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported QB Paxton Lynch likely would be the starter, if the team made a move. Rapoport points out that Lynch has three practices in the new offense.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of whether it is Lynch or Osweiler, it appears the Broncos are ready to move on from Siemian. The takeaway for fantasy purposes is rather meaningless: All three of these guys are not quality starters, and the passing game as a whole will continue to struggle.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler agrees to terms

Sun, 03 Sep 2017 05:09:20 -0700

The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Brock Osweiler (Browns) on a one-year deal, pending a physical which will take place Monday, Sept. 4. The Browns will have to pay the bulk of Osweiler's $16 million salary, with the Broncos only responsible for giving him the league minimum.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler will serve as Denver's No. 2 quarterback behind Trevor Siemian, while Paxton Lynch (shoulder) spends the next few weeks recovering from a sprained shoulder. However, he won't see the field barring an emergency and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Browns | Brock Osweiler to be traded again?

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 14:36:13 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is once again the subject of trade rumors, according to a source. QB DeShone Kizer will start in Cleveland's third preseason game, while Osweiler is not expected to play.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't much more than speculation at this point, but Osweiler just isn't cutting it in the NFL. Kizer has outperformed his counterpart in the preseason. The starting job appears to be the rookie's to lose, just don't start him on fantasy squads.

Browns | Brock Osweiler to sit

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 07:43:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is not expected to play in the third preseason game, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The third preseason game is the closest thing to a regular season game that exists, and he's not even playing. He was a middling QB2 when he had steam for the starting job, but he should probably be avoided now.

Browns | Brock Osweiler unimpressive again

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 20:30:34 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler completed 6-of-8 passes for 25 yards and also threw an interception Monday, August 21, opposite the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is expected to be Cleveland's starting quarterback going into the new season, but he has exhibited nothing to warrant being drafted in pretty much any league. In fact, if he does land the gig, it's highly probable he doesn't even make it through the year as the starter. Rookie DeShone Kizer looked solid for the second consecutive week and will inevitably take over at some point.

Browns | Teammate expects Brock Osweiler to start

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:12:26 -0700

Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas said he believes QB Brock Osweiler will open the season as the starting quarterback based on what he has seen during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler will be starting his second straight preseason game this week and appears to be performing well during practice. Owners can continue to monitor the situation to see which quarterback will start, but the winner of the job should not be owed in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Brock Osweiler will start next game

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 14:02:13 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler will start Week 2 of the preseason, according to head coach Hue Jackson. Osweiler will be followed by QB DeShone Kizer, then QB Cody Kessler.

Fantasy Tip: We'll see if Osweiler can stave off the promising rookie, Kizer, for a couple more weeks. The Browns could use some new blood, and Kizer has running ability, too. The bottom line, though, is that there should be no Cleveland quarterback starting for any fantasy squad on a weekly basis.

Browns | Brock Osweiler, DeShone Kizer splitting reps

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 14:05:32 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer are splitting snaps with the first-team offense during practice Saturday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler started the first preseason game, but Kizer played well during the game. It is not known which quarterback will start the second preseason game, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the week. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can avoid whichever quarterback is named the starter, but Kizer would be an option in keeper leagues if he starts.

Browns | Quarterback job Brock Osweiler's to lose?

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 10:41:20 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler will not only start the team's preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Aug. 10, but ESPN's Pat McManamon believes there is "probably a 75-percent chance" Osweiler keeps the job if he leads the offense "sufficiently" in that contest.

Fantasy Tip: This definitely has the feel of a coach trying to send a message to his other quarterbacks. Somehow, Osweiler appears to be on the cusp of locking up the starting job less than one week after not even getting snaps with the first team. If Osweiler was to start, it would likely be bad news for both Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman. Obviously, the former Texan signal-caller can be avoided in most drafts.

Browns | Brock Osweiler to start preseason game

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 05:11:35 -0700

Browns | Brock Osweiler could start preseason opener

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 16:33:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler has seen little, if any, time with the first-team in training camp, but ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reports Osweiler could be the new starter in the practice week and in the preseason opener Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints after taking over for an ineffective Cody Kessler during practice Friday, Aug. 4.

Browns | Brock Osweiler could start Week 1

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 14:37:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is still an option to start Week 1 even though he is not working with the first-team offense during training camp, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is competing with Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer for the starting job. The Browns probably will not decide on a starting quarterback until they play a few preseason games. Osweiler has had some success in the past but would only be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 09:14:38 -0700

Browns | Cleveland QB battle a two-man race?

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 11:46:42 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer are in an apparent two-man race for the starting quarterback position, according to Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Kessler and Kizer split first-team repetitions throughout minicamp, with QB Brock Osweiler working with the second team. Furthermore, Cabot expects head coach Hue Jackson to name a starter shortly after the preseason begins.

Fantasy Tip: Quarterback competitions are usually enticing, but it's hard to be excited about the Browns' current situation at the position. Kessler seems to have a slight edge on the rookie Kizer, but who knows how this will play out during training camp and the preseason. All three can be avoided in traditional leagues.

Browns | Cody Kessler to be first in drills

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 15:22:17 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Browns | Brock Osweiler eyeing starting gig

Thu, 25 May 2017 19:52:57 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler worked mainly with the second-team offense Wednesday, May 24, but he said his expectation is to start.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler could overtake Cody Kessler for the starting job, but even as the starter, he wouldn't be more than a low-end QB2.

Browns | Cody Kessler top option for now

Sat, 06 May 2017 13:52:02 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler appears to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback at this point since he is the only quarterback on the roster with any experience in head coach Hue Jackson's offense. Kessler is expected to compete with QBs Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer for the job.

Fantasy Tip: Kessler had some success last season but struggled with injuries. Owners in all fantasy leagues should avoid whoever the starting quarterback is in 2017. Kizer will have some value in keeper leagues since there is a good chance that he will be the starting in a few years.

Browns | DeShone Kizer in the mix for starting job

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 06:44:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will get the opportunity to compete for the team's starting quarterback job with QBs Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan and Brock Osweiler, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Kizer is named Cleveland's No. 1 quarterback, he should be avoided outside of keeper and dynasty fantasy formats. There is a good chance that the Browns will release Osweiler but the team is still on the lookout for a veteran QB to bridge the gap while Kizer gets accustomed to the offense.

Browns | Brock Osweiler to compete for starting job

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 10:33:53 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler will compete for the starting job in camp, according to executive vice president Sashi Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler will presumably compete with Cody Kessler for the starting job, assuming the Browns don't select a quarterback on the first day of the draft next week. Regardless of whom Cleveland adds on offense in the draft, the winner of the quarterback competition will struggle to be anything more than than a low-end fantasy QB2.

Browns | Brock Osweiler reports for workouts

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 21:54:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler reported to team headquarters Monday, April 17, for the start of voluntary offseason workouts. Head coach Hue Jackson has not yet committed to Osweiler staying on the roster when the new season begins.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have gone on record of saying that they plan on dumping Osweiler, so this is a pretty surprising development. Even so, even if he does manage to remain with the team going into the upcoming campaign, he probably wouldn't be starting under center. Thus, he'll have no worth for fantasy owners.

Browns | CLE still wants to dump Brock Osweiler

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 19:11:26 -0700

The Cleveland Browns still plan on moving QB Brock Osweiler, "whether in a trade or an outright release." The club would like to continue to develop QB Cody Kessler, and as a result, Osweiler could be dealt on draft weekend, or the Browns could choose to cut him and try to recoup some of his $16 million salary.

Fantasy Tip: If Cleveland is to dispose of Osweiler, they'll have to cut him, as it seems extremely unlikely they'll find a trading partner. Either way, it appears to be definite that the former Houston Texans starting quarterback will have a new home in 2017. At this rate, he won't have any fantasy value entering the new season.

Browns | Brock Osweiler sticking on roster for now

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 10:20:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler will remain a Brown "until he's not", according to head coach Hue Jackson. "He is (going to be part of the Browns). Obviously, he's a player on our team and we're going to treat him just like we do all of our other quarterbacks until he's not. … He's a guy that's gonna come in and compete. We haven't had an opportunity to meet with him … but once we start our offseason program, phase one, we'll get a chance to know him and he'll get to know us," Jackson said.

Fantasy Tip: It is anyone's guess as to whether or not Cleveland will draft a quarterback on the first two days of the draft - a move that would probably signal the end of Osweiler's short stay - or if he'll eventually get a shot to start. Either way, owners can safely avoid him in fantasy in 2017.

Browns | Brock Osweiler sealed Texans' fate with fight

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 10:05:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler "reacted negatively" to head coach Bill O'Brien's decision to turn to him in Week 17 after starter Tom Savage was injured in the second quarter of a loss to the Tennessee Titans. An argument reportedly ensued and the two men eventually engaged in a "physical confrontation that got ugly", according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: If all the details of this report are true, it would help explain why the Texans showed no interest in giving Osweiler another chance to prove himself in 2017 after a disastrous first season. Osweiler will likely be released soon if the Browns can't find a trade partner, while Houston will almost certainly spend a high draft pick on fixing their quarterback situation, even if it adds Tony Romo at some point.

Browns | Cleveland looking to move Brock Osweiler

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 11:45:36 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is being shopped to other teams in a trade, and the Browns are looking for a third-round pick in return, according to sources. The Browns are open to adding a fifth-round pick in the trade and are willing to pick up as much as half of the $16 million guaranteed in Osweiler's contract. The team likely will release Osweiler if they are not able to trade him.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns added Osweiler because of the second-round pick in the trade and do not intend to keep him on their roster. It is not known if Osweiler will be able to find a starting job if he becomes a free agent. Owners in all fantasy leagues should avoid him even if he is a starter.

Browns | Brock Osweiler not the future?

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 12:44:58 -0800

Impending Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is not necessarily the future of the franchise, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Instead, the belief is that Cleveland wanted the second-round pick from Houston and was willing to absorb the salary of Osweiler to facilitate the deal.

Fantasy Tip: Presuming this is accurate, the once-promising future of Osweiler is in free-fall. Regardless of his status for 2017, he should not be trusted as anything more than deep roster filler in cavernous leagues.

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler, a 2017 sixth-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick are being sent to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2017 fourth-round pick, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans are now primed to either trade for or sign Tony Romo. This would be an upgrade for DeAndre Hopkins and company, while the Browns' passing game still remains untouchable, aside from Terrelle Pryor if he is re-signed. Stay tuned Houston to sign Romo, but continue to ignore Osweiler and Robert Griffin III for fantasy purposes.

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler has all the traits to be a successful quarterback, according to retired head coach Gary Kubiak, and Kubiak said Osweiler is "going to be fine" in the long run.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Kubiak's optimism, Osweiler likely played himself into a quarterback competition with his poor performance this season. Even if he breaks camp as the starter, he doesn't need to be drafted.

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler and QB Tom Savage will compete, likely with a quarterback from the 2017 NFL draft, for the starting spot next season, according to owner Bob McNair. The Texans could draft a quarterback in the first or second rounds.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler or Savage would be a backup in fantasy if they win the job. There are some players to work with at the skill positions, and either could be a matchup play.

Texans | Owners says Brock Osweiler needs to step up

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 12:24:58 -0800

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said QB Brock Osweiler needs to step up his performance next season after he struggled in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler was bench near the end of the season because of his performance but did play the last few games because of an injury to Tom Savage. He probably will have to compete for the starting job during training camp but can be avoided in fantasy leagues if he wins the job.

Texans | Houston not committing to Brock Osweiler

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 10:04:34 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler received a slight but expected vote of non-confidence Monday, Jan. 16, as head coach Bill O'Brien told reporters it is too early to know if Osweiler will be the starting quarterback at season because the team has a lot of evaluating to do.

Fantasy Tip: The odds are overwhelming Houston adds a quarterback via the draft or free agency who can give Osweiler and/or Tom Savage a run for their money. With most if not all of the league's top-ranked defense likely to return in 2017, the pressure will be on the Texans' brass to improve the offense to the point to where they can make a Super Bowl run. A first-round quarterback selection cannot be ruled out, nor can the possibility Osweiler becomes the league's most highly paid backup.

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 19:14:52 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he is disappointed he was unable to capitalize on the opportunities that presented themselves in the AFC Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

Texans | Brock Osweiler melts down in second half

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:24:41 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler played turnover-free ball in the first half before throwing three interceptions in the second half in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots. He finished 23-of-40 for 198 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Thus ends a wildly inconsistent and mostly disappointing season for Osweiler, who found C.J. Fiedorowicz from 10 yards out for his only score. Despite being only one season into a four-year, $72 million deal, the Texans will need to seriously consider adding another signal-caller in the offseason after spending most of 2016 calling plays out of fear their top quarterback would lose games for them. Osweiler will be far off the fantasy radar in most leagues in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Compared to his usual numbers, this was a strong outing from Osweiler. A much tougher matchup likely awaits him next week, and he will be a reach for fantasy owners, even has a low-priced DFS play.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is back in the starting lineup after a brief benching, and with Tom Savage ruled out for the playoff game, the Texans have no other choice but to live and die with Osweiler. He has been awful this year, but with limited options available and a friendly matchup against the Raiders, he could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS games.
