Deshaun Watson OUT Week 8
7 months ago

Deshaun Watson has been ruled out Week 8 Vs Seattle by Head Coach Kevin Stefanski.

Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson made his return to action last week after missing the last 2 games for the Browns. The return was not what Browns fans or fantasy managers of Watson or his pass catchers were hoping for. Watson threw an interception early in the contest, and then took a big hit which forced him into the concussion protocol. After clearing the protocol Watson remained sidelined and hopes were that he would be ready to go week 8 Vs Seattle. Head Coach Kevin Stefanski shut down all hopes of that happening declaring Watson OUT for the game.

 

Watson continues to be a huge disappointment along with his pass catchers. It turns out the shoulder injury Watson suffered is more troubling than initially thought. Even in the game this past weekend against the Colts before Watson left he didn’t look to have much zip on his passes. The Browns are choosing to let him Rehab this week, but there is no guarantee the shoulder injury will heal enough for Watson or the Browns to feel comfortable with playing him in Week 9.

 

The Browns signed QB PJ Walker to a 1 yr deal this week and it looks like he is the starter until Watson is 100% ready to return. The problem, though, is an indefinite timetable. In the wake of Watsons absence Walker has been able to be a game manager and do enough to win games for the Browns– but unusable in fantasy. The Browns will continue to look towards utilizing a still strong rushing attack and lean on their defense to compete in games. The Browns have averaged 34 pass attempts a game in non-Watson starts. Avoiding Browns pass catchers where you can is the best option even when Watson returns to action as we learned this past weekend.

Deshaun Watson ruled OUT week 6
8 months ago

Deshaun Watson has been ruled OUT week 6 Vs the 49ers

Browns QB Deshaun Watson has been ruled out for a second straight week with a shoulder injury. Watson being out comes as a surprise after the QB had been saying he would play in week 4 before testing the shoulder before the game and telling the staff he couldn’t go. Cleveland then went into a bye week in week 5 and Watson came out of it no better than in week 4 not practicing and being ruled out again.

The Watson shoulder injury is befuddling and there is a sense of dissatisfaction from the Browns coaches with Watson for not playing. It’s officially being called a right rotator cuff contusion, but recent reports say he may miss multiple more weeks with the injury. This is dreadful news for the Browns and fantasy managers of Browns receivers. In Watsons last game he seemed to be getting more comfortable in the offense posting a 27/33 289yd 2TD passing line in a soft matchup. Rookie QB Dorian Thompson Robinson started for Watson the next week and nuked the values of all the pass catchers in the offense.

 

With Watson possibly missing multiple weeks according to recent reports it is safe to drop him from fantasy teams if you haven’t done so already. Amari Cooper is a sell if you can guy and an emergency start without Watson in the lineup. Elijah Moore had promising usage and fantasy managers might have been holding on waiting for him to get comfortable with Watson but that dream is now dead as well. In the one start we got from Dorian Thompson Robinson all pass catchers failed, and now the team plans to start former XFL star QB PJ Walker who only has 7 career NFL starts, and only 2 games in those 7 starts with over 200 passing yards. To make matters worse the Cleveland Browns opponent this week are the San Francisco 49ers who boast the NFLs best defense and team through 5 weeks. Avoid the Browns players at all cost.

Chicago Bears Release QB P.J. Walker; Sign Rookie Tyson Bagent
9 months ago

The Chicago Bears shook up their quarterback room by cutting current backup P.J. Walker and signing undrafted Division II rookie Tyson Bagent.

The Bears’ sudden move to replace second-string quarterback P.J. Walker came as a surprise after Chicago just signed the fourth-year backup to a two-year contract worth $4.15M with over $2M in guarantees this Spring. Walker’s replacement on the roster Tyson Bagent will compete with Nathan Peterman for QB2 duties behind star signal caller Justin Fields.

Though relatively unknown, Tyson Bagent is coming off a historic run in Division II. He passed for a total of 9,580 yards and 94 touchdowns in his final two college seasons, and his 159 career passing touchdowns represent the current NCAA record. According to Bears coach Matt Eberflus, Bagent will be the first QB off the bench in competition with Nathan Peterson. It’s worth noting Tyson Bagent was in fact the second QB to enter Chicago’s final preseason game, ending the preseason 20-156-0-1 while adding two touchdowns on the ground.

Bagent rightfully remains undrafted in redraft leagues. However, the push by Chicago to fortify their aerial attack should instill faith in the wide receiver corp, even in the worst case of Justin Fields going down to injury.
