Brandon Weeden is expected to play Sunday when the Cleveland Browns host the Baltimore Ravens. Weeden was listed on the Browns' injury report with a groin/thigh injury, but was not limited in any way during practice. He should be at full strength against the Ravens.
Weeden had an ugly performance last week in a windy, rainy game against the San Diego Chargers. He played well prior to last week's weather-marred outing, however. He had six touchdown pass to three interceptions from Week 5 through Week 7.
Fantasy Impact: Weeden probably still isn't a starter in standard formats, but he has made the case to be a decent backup and QB2 in two-quarterback leagues. He is clicking with his wide receiver corps, thanks in large part to the emergence of Josh Gordon, and Trent Richardson is providing tremendous support in the running game.
The Ravens are a reeling defense due to the devestating losses of linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb. If you're desperate for a quarterback due to the bye week or because of injuries, Weeden is definitely worth a look.
