2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
I'm not sure how long Cleveland will carry this many quarterbacks, but for the time being, I'm going to lump these three guys into one writhing mass of quarterback mediocrity. Kessler, the second year holdover from 2016 had a strange rookie season. He started the year off as the 3rd-string developmental quarterback, but was thrust into the lineup Week 3 after both RGIII and Josh McCown went down with injuries. The former Trojan ended up going winless in his starts and got battered around a bunch, but ended up not embarrassing himself in the games he was able to play in. He completed 65% of his passes and had a strong 6-2 touchdown to interception ratio. His limited work in 2016 earned him the starting role to begin 2017. If he can stay healthy, I think his experience, intelligence, and moxie will be able to hold off Kizer for the near future.

Speaking of Kizer, he's the long-term future of this franchise. He's likely to see snaps at some point this year, later than sooner if Cleveland has its way. He's got some work to do to be ready to lead an NFL team into battle, and I don't see the benefit of having him playing before he is ready. He had a bitter end to his college career, but has the physical gifts to be a starter in this league. If he's starting for this team things have either gone incredibly wrong (again), or he's accelerated far quicker than anyone imagined.

The Browns are playing the long game here at quarterback and I don't think Osweiler realistically fits into their plans. One of the bigger busts in recent free agent history, Osweiler is an NFL backup and nothing more. If the young guns show well, I wouldn't be surprised if he's cut toward the end of camp. That being said, no quarterback on this roster is worth re-draft consideration. There may be some very sneaky DFS league value on a week against a terrible defense, but that's as far as I'd go.

Cleveland sticking with Kizer
Browns name rookie QB starter ahead of London trip

Cleveland Browns
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- DeShone Kizer will have a chance to treat Browns fans in London like royalty and give them a victory that fans here haven't enjoyed. Hue Jackson named his rookie as the starter for Sunday's game at Twickenham Stadium against the Vikings, who are in the top five in four defensive categories. Kizer, who's last in the NFL with a 47.8 rating, will make his seventh start of the season over Cody Kessler, who took the Titans to overtime on Sunday, but lost 12-9 on a field goal with 1:55 remaining. (Cleveland.com)

FFToday's Take: Cleveland's passing game has been trending downward since the they lost Corey Coleman in Week 2. Playing overseas against a tough Vikings defense, fantasy owners should simply avoid the Browns' receivers and tight ends this week.
