The Cleveland Browns are likely to stick with Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback for Week 8, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Cleveland will travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Many questioned whether or not Weeden would be benched in favor of Jason Campbell or even a free agent addition, due to how laughably bad he's been. The team already benched him once, in favor of Brian Hoyer (if that sentence is not a proper conveyance of how awful this situation is ... do you watch football?), but he went down with an injury so Weeden's back in the lineup.
Against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7, Weeden was abysmal. He completed 17 of 42 pass attempts for 149 yards, a touchdown and an interception. That's a completion percentage of 40.5, the second time it's been sub-50 percent this season.
Fantasy Impact: Do not start Weeden in any league under any circumstances. Unless you are in a 32-team league and you drew the shortest stick, there is a better quarterback option out there. He's not going to throw for a lot of yards, he's almost guaranteed to throw an interception and he'll probably be benched soon. Just bad news all around.
