Brandon Weeden to start in Week 7, fantasy value as low as it gets

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns will stick with Brandon Weeden in Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden may be 0-3 as a starter, but he'll get an opportunity to pick up his first win of the season in Week 7. Head coach Rob Chudzinski confirmed that Weeden will start against the Green Bay Packersaccording to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Chudzinski said that Weeden "played well in spurts," and that there has been no discussion in regards to a potential switch to Jason Campbell. That's likely due to the fact that Campbell is a long-time veteran of the NFL and is a known commodity. The team knows exactly what they'd get if they went with Campbell.

Still, there's not a whole lot still up in the air regarding Weeden. He's basically a known commodity at this point as well, though he does obviously have a bit more upside than Campbell -- jokes about his age aside.

Fantasy Impact: Weeden hasn't been the worst quarterback in fantasy, but if you're a fantasy owner relying on his performances week-in and week-out, chances are you're not a very happy fantasy owners. Weeden put up almost 300 yards and threw for two touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in Week 6, but squandered away a solid fantasy performance and the game with two interceptions. That seems a likely output going forward.
