|Kizer will start third pre-season game for Browns|
Positioning himself to earn starting job heading into regular season
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 23, 9:00 am
|On Wednesday morning, Hue Jackson named DeShone Kizer, the No. 52 overall pick out of Notre Dame, the Browns' starting quarterback over veteran Brock Osweiler -- at least for the Tampa Bay game Saturday night. Jackson said in a statement that Kizer starting the dress rehearsal game positions him well to start the season Sept. 10 against the Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium, where he'll likely become the 27th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: While it's not official, it appears Kizer will be under center Week 1 for the Browns. Brock Osweiler has failed to score on any of his six preseason drives. Kizer doesn't provide much fantasy value, but his rushing ability could be a second option in 2-QB leagues.

Cleveland signal caller should be decided by Wednesday

|Hue Jackson said he's going to watch the tape to decide between Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer. "There were some things that I felt on the sidelines just being out there watching the game, calling the plays and watching how things happen. Like I told you guys, I hope by Wednesday of this upcoming week we will have a decision of where we are headed, and I think that is what we have to do." (ClevelandBrowns.com)|
FFToday's Take: This is a tough situation, and without an established QB, neither portends to be all that successful in 2017. Still, the Browns could be playing from behind a lot and there could be some QB2 fantasy value at some point.

Cody Kessler struggling

|As expected, Hue Jackson didn’t shake up the quarterback rotation in a light practice on Saturday. But he admitted he could announce one Monday and indications are that Brock Osweiler will be the new starter in the practice week and in the preseason opener Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints.

FFToday's Take: It seems Cody Kessler has struggled during the early days of camp and DeShone Kizer still has some learning to do. The Browns are putting a lot of thought into this situation as Jackson said he would discuss the QB move higher ups in the organization. However ends up being the Browns starting QB Week 1, he will be low-end QB2 option in fantasy.

Camp battle includes Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer

|Browns Cody Kessler will walk out there first," said Hue Jax. "He deserves a chance to walk out there first" (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer will also get their turn but Kessler get the first opportunity in camp. Ultimately the winner of this battle will have little fantasy value outside of two-QB leagues.
