Brandon Weeden was...not terrible? We break down the fantasy implications.
Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden had a huge Week 2 bounce back from a miserable rookie debut. Against the Cincinnati Bengals, Weeden completed 26 of 37 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns. After the Browns fell behind 24-10, Weeden led a furious 2nd half comeback but came up short, as the team lost 34-27.
Fantasy Impact: Who was this guy, and where was he last week against the Eagles? Weeden's turnaround was almost like night and day. That, or it's a haunting indictment of the Bengals' defense. I wouldn't go rushing to pick him off the waiver wire yet, but he has a chance to actually be useful to fantasy teams this year. The Browns travel to Buffalo in Week 3.
