Brandon Weeden had his second poor game in three weeks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden fell back into bad rookie habits against the Buffalo Bills, completing 27-of-43 passes for 237 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for a 65.7 QB Rating. He also took four sacks. Despite throwing the ball 43 times, Weeden had only 5.5 Yards Per Attempt and seemed content to check it down to Trent Richardson and Chris Ogbonnaya. The Browns lost to the Bills 24-14.

Fantasy Impact: After three games, Weeden has three TDs to six INTs, and a laughable 5.8 YPA. The Browns are going to keep the training wheels on their rookie for the foreseeable future, and play the Ravens next week. He's not a fantasy option.
