Brandon Weeden returns to practice: Fantasy implications

Matt Sullivan

Brandon Weeden (concussion) has been cleared to practice this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden (concussion) has been cleared to practice Wednesday, reports Mary Kay Cabot. Weeden suffered the concussion at the end of Sunday's Week 12 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In his rookie year, Weeden has completed just 55.6% of his passes for 2,456 yards, 12 TDs, 13 INTs and 6.2 YPA.

Fantasy Impact: Pat Shurmur went on the record to say "we're moving ahead with Brandon" so it sounds like he will be good to go against the Raiders in Week 13. If he has a last-minute setback, Colt McCoy will get the start.

Weeden has had his moments this year, but he's still not much of a fantasy option. He has QB2 upside at best for desperate owners.
