Brock Osweiler Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Browns HC Hue Jackson said Wednesday that QB Cody Kessler will open training camp as the starter. As expected. Kessler, despite entering just his 2nd NFL season, is the only 1 of Cleveland's top 3 QBs who was with the team last year. Rookie DeShone Kizer and Brock Osweiler both remain in the mix, though, per Jackson. Kizer worked in with the starters in June minicamp, while Osweiler was with the 2nd team. We'll keep an eye on this one, although whoever starts for Cleveland will be just a lower-end QB2 in fantasy football.

Browns HC Hue Jackson told the team website that QB Brock Osweiler "has been a pleasant surprise" so far. “Since he has been here, he has been outstanding," Jackson said. "Everybody has a reputation before them. His was a little bit different. He’s not any of that, that we saw. The guy has been outstanding in our building, and I think that’s what is most important.” There should be a fairly open competition at QB in Cleveland this summer, with Cody Kessler as the early favorite. We'll see where this goes.

The Browns will acquire QB Brock Osweiler and a 2018 2nd round draft pick from the Texans. The move clears $16 million in salary from Houston's books, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Browns are now expected to move on from QB Robert Griffin III, leaving them with Osweiler and Cody Kessler atop the depth chart. We wouldn't anoint Osweiler as the Week 1 starter -- Cleveland will certainly still add a QB in the 2017 draft -- but a massive contract gives him another chance to rehab his image. Of course, that won't be easy after a rough 2016, one that included 15 TDs, 16 INTs and a 59% completion rate. We'll also see if Houston can acquire QB Tony Romo from Dallas.

Update: Schefter and Rapoport report that the Browns are considering a release or a trade of Osweiler. Stay tuned as more details roll in.

Texans QB Brock Osweiler will start Saturday's playoff opener against the Raiders, HC Bill O'Brien announced on Tuesday. QB Tom Savage (concussion) is iffy to be cleared in time. And even if he was, he'd miss most or all of this week of practice. So Houston goes back to Osweiler, who finished the regular season with a 59% completion rate, 5.8 yards per attempt, 15 TDs and 16 INTs. He fared OK vs. Oakland back in Week 11, going 26 of 39 for 243 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT.

Texans QB Tom Savage left in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Titans to be checked for a concussion. He returned to take a knee at the end of the half, but QB Brock Osweiler was back out there to start the 3rd quarter. We'll update this situation when we learn more.

Update: Savage was reportedly reevaluated for a concussion at halftime and then ruled out.

The Texans are expected to start QB Tom Savage against the Bengals on Saturday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Savage stepped in for the benched Brock Osweiler in the 2nd quarter of yesterday's game and led the Texans back from a 13-0 deficit for a 21-20 win. Savage completed 23 of 36 passes for 260 yards with 0 TDs or INTs. His 85.4 QB Rating was better than Osweiler has posted in all but 3 games this season. Savage will be no better than a low-end QB2 for Week 16, but he looks like good news for WR DeAndre Hopkins. Savage targeted Hopkins on 15 of his 36 attempts (42%) yesterday, completing 8 for 87 yards.

Texans QB Brock Osweiler was benched in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars after throwing 2 INTs among his first 11 attempts. That gives him 16 INTs on the year. QB Tom Savage is now under center for Houston.

The forecast for today's Texans-Packers game calls for 1-3 inches of snow. Wind won't be a major factor, though, at just 5-10 mph. Green Bay's passing game is safe to keep in fantasy lineups. There's nothing safe about Houston's passing game, but that has nothing to do with the weather.

Texans HC Bill O’Brien is pleased with the progression of QB Brock Osweiler. "When we watch the tape, one of the things that stands out to me, personally, is his knowledge and his command of the offense,” O'Brien said via the Houston Chronicle. It’s an encouraging development as Osweiler digests a new offense led by O’Brien and OC George Godsey. The former Bronco is done for the preseason after completing 11-of-13 passes for 146 yards and 1 TD against Arizona on Sunday. For now, he’s a low-end QB2.

ESPN's Tania Ganguli predicts that Texans QB Brock Osweiler will break the franchise's single-season record of 29 passing TDs.  Only 11 QBs chucked for 30+ scores last season.  Osweiler has just 11 to his name and was up-and-down in 7 starts last year.  We'll bet against him reaching 30 TDs in what figures to be a run-heavy Houston offense this year.  Osweiler at least has an intriguing group of weapons, though, in WR DeAndre Hopkins, rookie WR Will Fuller and RB Lamar Miller.

The Texans have agreed to a contract with QB Brock Osweiler, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.  A 2nd-round pick back in 2012, Osweiler spent his first 3 seasons under QB Peyton Manning.  He played 6 full games this past year, completing 62% of his passes, averaging 6.9 yards per attempt and tossing 8 TDs vs. 3 INTs.  Osweiler remains mostly an enigma, but there's a good chance that he proves to be an upgrade over QB Brian Hoyer.  We like this news for WR DeAndre Hopkins' outlook.  The Broncos, meanwhile, are left with only QB Trevor Siemian on their roster.  They reportedly have some interest in 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler suffered a "low-grade" MCL strain in last Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to insider Mike Klis.  Osweiler has spent the past week getting treatment but is expected to be ready to backup QB Peyton Manning in the Divisional Round.

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers.  He completed 14 of 22 passes for 232 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs.  Osweiler also lost a fumble.  QB Peyton Manning replaced Osweiler, connecting on 5 of 9 passes for 69 yards in the win.  Denver locked up the #1 seed.  Manning will almost certainly be under center for the Divisional Round.

As expected, the Broncos will start QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) vs. the Bengals on Sunday. This news comes via ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who also notes that Peyton Manning (foot) will be inactive once again. A banged up Osweiler isn’t an enticing fantasy option in any format despite his strong outing last week vs. Pittsburgh.

Broncos HC Gary Kubiak confirmed on Monday that QB Brock Osweiler's left (non-throwing) shoulder injury is not serious.  "He's sore today, but all indications are he'll be OK," Kubiak said.  We'll see whether QB Peyton Manning is healthy enough to force Denver to make a decision on its Week 16 starter.  Osweiler collapsed in the 2nd half of Sunday's loss to the Steelers, completing just 7 of 22 passes for 82 yards.

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will have an x-ray on the left (non-throwing) shoulder he injured late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers.  Osweiler was brilliant before the injury, tossing 3 TDs and running for another.  But he completed just 7 of 22 passes for 82 yards in the 2nd half, as Denver blew a 14-point lead.  Osweiler will likely be available for next week's game against the Bengals.  We'll see if the Broncos stick with him or turn back to QB Peyton Manning.

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler went to the locker room in the 2nd quarter of Sunday’s game vs. Pittsburgh with a left shoulder injury. He’s probable to return – excellent news for fantasy owners, as the young passer is 14 of 18 for 214 yards and 4 total scores.

UPDATE: Osweiler returned to the game in the 3rd quarter.
