Name  Brandon Weeden
Born  10/14/1983
Height  6-3
Weight  220
College  Oklahoma State
8/8/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Brandon Weeden looked surprisingly good in a starting role, going 13-for-17 for 107 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in the Cowboys preseason opener.
Insight: He did it without Dez Bryant, Jason Witten or DeMarco Murray, so we were impressed. Tony Romo did have offseason surgery, but should be ready to go when the season begins. If Weeden can continue to play at this level he'll be a solid handcuff.
 
3/17/2014 4:56:00 PM
Description: Brandon Weeden has signed a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Insight: Barring injury, Weeden's fantasy value is zero. Tony Romo did have offseason surgery, but should be ready to go by training camp.

Description: The Brandon Weeden experiment has ended in Cleveland. SOURCE: Mike Silver, NFL.com
Insight: The Browns admitted defeat by cutting Weeden earlier today. With 26 interceptions and a 71.8 rating over his first 23 games, it's clear Weeden isn't starter material. He'll land a backup job this offseason ... if he's lucky.

Description: Brandon Weeden wants the Browns to trade him. SOURCE: Chris Wesseling, NFL.com
Insight: Weeden lost his starting job multiple times last season and is unlikely to get it back in 2014. Brian Hoyer is the team's best option under center though Cleveland might still draft a quarterback with the fourth pick. Either way, it's going to be tough to drum up interest from other teams after Weeden's dismal 2013 campaign (70.3 QB rating, 52.8 completion percentage).
 
12/1/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was diagnosed with a concussion after Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to cleveland.com.
Insight: Weeden started Sunday's game because Jason Campbell was out with the concussion he suffered in Week 12. Alex Tanney, who was picked up from Dallas' practice squad this week, is Cleveland's other QB.
 
12/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden had 370 passing yards, three touchdowns and three turnovers Sunday against the Jaguars.
Insight: Weeden targeted Josh Gordon 15 times and hit him on 10 for 261 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be a decent 12-team QB2 if he starts in Week 14 at New England.
 
11/25/2013 6:45:00 PM
Description: Sports Illustrated reports Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden will start next week's game against Jacksonville.
Insight: It's not by choice. Starter Jason Campbell is out with a concussion. Weeden definitely shouldn't be your first choice but if your team is dealing with an injury, he could be worth a look against a Jaguars team that ranks 24th in yards allowed. Wideout Josh Gordon should see plenty of targets with Weeden under center.
 
Cold10/23/2013 12:59:00 PM
Description: The Browns have seen enough. Brandon Weeden has been benched in favor of backup quarterback Jason Campbell for this week's game against Kansas City.
Insight: By every measure, Weeden has been one of the worst quarterbacks in football this year and at age 30, the odds of him improving down the line aren't very high. The Browns would be wise to draft a quarterback next May with Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel from Texas A&M as the two best options. Unfortunately, Heisman frontrunner Jameis Winston from Florida State won't be eligible for the draft until 2015.
 
Cold10/22/2013 11:32:00 AM
Description: The decision to start or sit Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden in Week 8 has yet to be made.
Insight: Coach Rob Chudzinski really doesn't have many options because we've all seen what backup Jason Campbell can and can't do, but Weeden was simply ugly against the Packers last Sunday. Heading into Arrowhead Stadium in Week 8 means fantasy owners should avoid the Browns offense at all costs no matter who is under center.
 
10/14/2013 2:06:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden will start in Week 7, according to Coach Rob Chudzinski.
Insight: Chudzinski really doesn't have many options because we've all seen what backup Jason Campbell can and can't do. Weeden is 0-3 this season with a 71.4 QB rating.
 
10/7/2013 2:45:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is expected to start Week 6 against Detroit, according to Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot.
Insight: The quarterback questions in Cleveland ended when Brian Hoyer's knee injury ended his season. Weeden isn't likely to get a challenge from Jason Campbell.

Description: Brandon Weeden won't need surgery on his sprained thumb. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: The Browns are expecting Weeden to miss only one game. Former Patriots signal caller Brian Hoyer will get the start Sunday against the Vikings.
 
9/18/2013 11:09:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, who left Sunday's game against the Ravens in the fourth quarter, has been diagnosed with a sprained right thumb, and will not play in Week 3
Insight: Weeden hit his thumb on a helmet and went to the locker room. Brian Hoyer and not Jason Campbell is expected to get the start. It will be Hoyer's second career start.
 
9/16/2013 10:43:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, who left Sunday's game against the Ravens in the fourth quarter, has been diagnosed with a sprained right thumb, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Insight: Weeden hit his thumb on a helmet and went to the locker room. If he can't play next Sunday, Jason Campbell would be the Browns option. That's not good news for any fantasy owner. The last fantasy-worthy game out of Campbell came back in 2011.

8/20/2013 12:50:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has finally been named the starter by coach Rob Chudzinski. It was never much of a contest between Weeden and Jason Campbell.
Insight: Weeden went 18-of-25 for 229 yards and three touchdown in the preseason. The Browns offense should be improved if they can a) keep Trent Richardson healthy, b) get the most out of Greg Little and Josh Gordon and c) use talented tight end Jordan Cameron.
 
8/13/2013 9:19:00 PM
Description: Even though Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has taken every snap with the first-team offense throughout camp, coach Rob Chudzinski said he's not ready to name a starting quarterback and called the competition a tight race. "I think it’s still close and we’re finding out every game, and these games are important opportunities for guys to show what they can do," Chudzinski said.SOURCE: Akron Beacon-Journal (Ohio.com)
Insight: Weeden went 10-of-13 for 112 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener against the Rams last week. There's virtually no chance he won't be under center Week 1, regardless of what Chudzinski says to keep his players motivated.
 
6/4/2013 5:42:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has been the only signal-caller taking first-team reps at the team's minicamp.
Insight: Cleveland is holding open competition between Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell for the No. 2 spot. Weeden had an underwhelming 3,385 yards, 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions as a rookie last year, and the regime that drafted him 22nd overall was ousted this offseason, but it looks like he'll be the starter in 2013. Along with up-and-coming receiver Josh Gordon, Weeden will have acquisitions David Nelson and Davone Bess to throw to this season.
 
12/30/2012 11:47:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has been ruled out for Week 17.
Insight: Colt McCoy is also inactive. Thad Lewis will get the start. Given his limited experience, we suggest avoiding the entire Browns offense.
 
12/24/2012 1:25:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden exited Sunday's game against Denver with a shoulder injury and did not return, but has not been ruled out for Week 17.
Insight: Colt McCoy would get the start if Weeden is inactive. Weeden had a few productive games this season, but not enough to rise to the level of fantasy starter.
