Brandon Weeden went just 11-for-27 passing for 129 yards during Sunday's sloppy win over the San Diego Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.
Brandon Weeden went just 11-for-27 passing for 129 yards during the Cleveland Browns' win over the San Diego Chargers in ugly weather on Sunday. Weeden's leading receiver was Josh Gordon, who had three receptions for 46 yards off five targets.
Sunday's performance ended a streak of three straight games with two touchdown passes for Weeden. He threw for less than 200 yards for the first time since an awful performance in the Browns' season opener.
Fantasy Impact: Weeden had been playing well prior to Sunday's game, so count this as a mulligan due to the wind and the rain. He has actually fashioned himself into a viable QB2 in two-quarterback leagues. Weeden is still a backup quarterback in standard formats.
Weeden could bounce back nicely next week against a reeling Baltimore Ravens defense if you are looking to replace a starter on a bye.
