Brandon Weeden struggled mightily during the Cleveland Browns' loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. He averaged 4.8 yards per attempt for a second straight game, going 20-for-37 passing for 176 yards, two interceptions and zero touchdowns.
Weeden has passed for less than 200 yards in two straight games after seven consecutive games with at least 231 yards. He threw his first interceptions since Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Impact: Weeden had been playing well up until Week 8, throwing six touchdowns over his three games prior. In fact, he can be excused for his 129-yard performance last week in a wind and rain-marred game against the San Diego Chargers. There is no defending his ugly performance against what was a reeling Ravens squad, however.
Weeden may still be a solid backup/QB2 over the second half of the season. The rookie is tough to recommend as a starting option in standard formats unless you are in a bind due to a bye week or injuries.
