Brandon Weeden injury update: Fantasy value unharmed despite limited practice participation

Ronald Martinez

Brandon Weeden is expected to play Sunday for the Browns against the Raiders despite being limited in practice Wednesday due to a mild concussion suffered in Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Weeden is expected to play for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Weeden was limited in practice Wednesday, but able to practice fully on Thursday and Friday after suffering a mild concussion late in last week's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Weeden has been relatively ineffective in his rookie season. He has just 12 touchdown passes to 13 interceptions on the season, and is averaging just 223 yards passing per game.

Fantasy Impact: Weeden will play, but he is still an extremely weak fantasy option, even for two-quarterback leagues. He hasn't passed for more than 300 yards since Week 4, has just three touchdown passes over his last four games.

If you do have to deploy Weeden, then at least this week is a good one to do so. The Raiders have given up 23 passing touchdowns with just six interceptions this year.
