Brandon Weeden throws 2 TDs and solidifying value as a QB2 in fantasy

Jonathan Daniel

Brandon Weeden had a couple TDs on Sunday against the Colts on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Weeden wasn't too shabby against the Colts on Sunday with 264 yards and two touchdowns on 25-of-41 passing. He also added a 13-yard run and didn't throw a pick.

Weeden has been humming along and has thrown the ball 38 times per game in his last six starts. He now had nine TDs with 10 picks for 1,783 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Well, the 5.1 passer rating jokes from Week 1 against the Eagles have subsided a bit. Weeden has been a legit QB and fantasy owners that have used him since in two-QB leagues are likely happy with the results.

The Browns will host the reeling Chargers next week and if what Peyton Manning did to them in the second half on Monday is any indication, Weeden may have success at home. However, he's just a QB2 for that matchup.
