Case Keenum Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Browns QB Baker Mayfield has a fractured humerus bone in his left shoulder, in addition to the torn labrum. He needs that fracture to heal before he'll be cleared to play. Mayfield told Glazer that he's "hoping" to return next week, but that feels unlikely. We'll keep you updated on the situation.

The forecast for tonight's Broncos-Browns game calls for sustained winds up to 20 mph and gusts around 30 mph. That's enough to impact some longer throws and kicks -- and another reason to expect this to be a low-scoring game.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos and that QB Case Keenum will get the start. "Baker obviously wants to be out there but just couldn’t make it on a short week," Stefanski said. “We know he will continue to do everything in his power to return as quickly as possible." We'll see if Mayfield can make it back for Week 8. Keenum, meanwhile, will make his 1st start since Week 17 of the 2019 season. The 33-year-old has 62 career starts under his belt and sports a 62.3% completion rate, 6.9 yards-per-attempt average and 75 TDs vs. 47 INTs. Keenum is a capable backup but still a downgrade from Mayfield.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield appeared to injure his left arm while trying to make a tackle on an INT in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Stay tuned for an update. QB Case Keenum is Cleveland's backup.

Update: Mayfield returned on the next series.

The Browns have placed QB Baker Mayfield on the COVID list. We don't yet know whether he tested positive for the virus or came in contact with someone who did. Mayfield has a chance to be cleared in time for next weekend's game against the Texans if he doesn't have a positive test between now and then. If Mayfield is out for that one, Cleveland would turn to QB Case Keenum.

Update: NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Mayfield came in contact with a COVID-positive individual. So he could be cleared as soon as Wednesday if he tests negative.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield was pulled late in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh. No word yet on whether he's hurt or benched. Mayfield entered this one dealing with a rib injury and struggled mightily, completing 10 of 18 passes for 119 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs. He was sacked 4 times. QB Case Keenum is in for Cleveland.

The Browns agreed to a 3-year, $18 million deal with QB Case Keenum on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal includes $10 million guaranteed and likely locks Keenum in as Baker Mayfield's backup for at least the next couple of seasons. Keenum played for new Cleveland HC Kevin Stefanski in Minnesota in 2017, when Stefanski served as the Vikings' QBs coach.

Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) is out for Sunday's finale against the Cowboys, HC Bill Callahan said. Washington will turn back to QB Case Keenum, who has tossed multiple scores in 4 of 5 full games this season. That includes a 221-2-0 passing line vs. Dallas. Keenum will be on the QB2 and DFS radar for Week 17.

Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie is undergoing additional testing. If that confirms this initial diagnosis, he won't play in Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. That'd put Case Keenum back under center for the 'Skins.

Redskins QB Case Keenum sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Thursday night's game in Minnesota. Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins will be under center for the final 30 minutes. We'll track Keenum's progress through the protocol. It's his 2nd documented concussion.

Redskins QB Case Keenum is expected to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins, "assuming his foot injury allows him," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Keenum actually ranked 11th among QBs in fantasy points over the season's first 3 weeks and now draws a Miami squad sitting 30th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. But we'd still consider Keenum more of a QB2 option than a QB1 spot starter.

Redskins QB Case Keenum was benched in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants after completing 6 of 11 passes for 37 yards and an INT. Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins has entered for Washington and figures to be under center the rest of today -- and probably the rest of the season.

Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll start this weekend’s game against the Giants. There’s upside in that plus matchup — but Keenum also comes with risk after his 3-INT Week 3. His stock will take a hit if WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) isn’t able to play.

Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) returned to a full practice on Thursday. So he's on track to start this weekend's game against the Giants. That's a pristine matchup, giving Keenum intriguing fantasy upside. He also carries some risk, though, after a rough Week 3 outing against the Bears.

Redskins QB Case Keenum missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. He took a beating against the Bears on Monday night but made it through the game. We'll see Thursday if this was just a day off or if it's a legitimate injury. It's worth noting that QB Colt McCoy practiced for the 1st time on Wednesday since last December's broken leg.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden named QB Case Keenum his Week 1 starter on Sunday. This has been the expectation for a while now. Keenum hasn't been great this preseason, completing just 53.3% of his passes, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt and tossing 1 TD and 0 INTs. But rookie QB Dwayne Haskins didn't quite do enough to prove ready, completing 53.7% of his attempts with a 7.3-yard average, 1 TD and 2 INTs -- against mostly backup defenses. The rookie still figures to take over at some point this season, but this is a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "all signs" are pointing to QB Case Keenum winning Washington's starting job to open the year, citing chats with multiple sources. That goes along with recent rumors and comes as no big surprise. Keenum looks like he'll offer a steadier hand for Washington wideouts in fantasy football. We'd bet on rookie Dwayne Haskins overtaking him at some point this season, though. Neither QB should be in your fantasy plans unless you play in a 2-QB or superflex league.

When asked this week whether rookie QB Dwayne Haskins is a serious contender to open the season as the starter, HC Jay Gruden said, "He's put enough out there on tape to say he deserves a shot, without a doubt," according to ESPN's John Keim. Gruden went on to talk about the "wow" plays and traits Haskins has already displayed. He also indicated that how well Haskins continues to learn and retains information during the break before training camp will be key. At this point, we'd bet on Haskins opening as the starter. But the situation will certainly be worth watching. He doesn't look like much of a 2019 redraft factor, but Haskins should increase the upside for Washington pass-catchers in fantasy football over what Case Keenum or Colt McCoy would provide.

The Redskins nabbed Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. Haskins was just a 1-year starter at Ohio State … but it was a super impressive year. He completed 70% of his passes and set Big Ten records with 4,831 yards and 50 TDs. Haskins did a lot of damage on short and intermediate throws — his 9.1 average depth of target ranked 42nd in this draft class, per Pro Football Focus — but he also finished with the 8th best passer rating on throws 20+ yards downfield. Haskins’ 77.1% adjusted completion rate was 5th best in the class. He’s not going to boost his fantasy value with his legs, but Haskins has the size (6’3, 231 lbs.) and arm to stick as a long-term NFL starter. Despite his relative inexperience, Haskins has a good shot to win Washington’s Week 1 starting job over Case Keenum and Colt McCoy.

Check out Dwayne Haskins' scouting report.
