Browns QB Deshaun Watson concluded Sunday's contest vs. the Commanders with 9 completions on 18 attempts for 169 yards and 3 TDs with another 31 yards rushing on top. Watson's connection with WR Amari Cooper (3 receptions, 105 yards, 2 TDs) accounted for much of his production after struggling in the 1st half. Sunday's performance marks the best fantasy output (21.86 points) from Watson in 2022 since returning from suspension in Week 13. He'll have an opportunity to capitalize on this outing in Week 18 vs. the Steelers next Sunday.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson threw for just 135 yards, with no TDs and 1 INT in Saturday's loss to the Saints. He did run for a 12-yard TD among 3 carries for 24 yards. We wouldn't plan to use Watson in Week 17 for his matchup with Washington.

The forecast for today's Saints-Browns game calls for temperatures in the single digits with sustained winds of 20-25 mph and gusts of 40+. The wind chill is well below zero. They're brutal conditions that will significantly limit the passing and kicking games. Check out our projections for all the Saints and Browns players.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson didn't show much progress in his 3rd game back. He threw for just 161 yards and 1 TD in Saturday's win over the Ravens. He found WR Donovan Peoples-Jones from 3 yards out for the team's lone TD. WR Amari Cooper and TE David Njoku tied for the target lead (6). Cooper caught 4 balls for 58 yards. Njoku snagged 3 for just 28 yards. Week 16 brings a Saints defense that ranks 12th on the year in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA, compared with 21st against the run. Watson doesn't look like a fantasy starter for that week or a Week 17 trip to Washington.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson managed 276 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on 26-of-42 passing in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, a step up from his shoddy debut in the win at Houston. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (12), TE David Njoku (9) and WR Amari Cooper (7) led in targets, as the only Browns to draw more than 4. Week 15 holds a Baltimore defense that ranks among the best in the league -- not a great spot to take a shot on Watson in fantasy football lineups.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson completed just 12 of his 22 pass attempts for 131 yards in Sunday's win over the Texans. He threw an INT and added a mere 21 rushing yards on 7 carries in a game that found Cleveland scoring 0 offensive TDs. It was Watson's 1st game since January 2021, so we'd assume he'll settle in over the next few weeks. There will obviously be risk to playing Watson against Cincinnati in Week 14 lineups, though.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson has complied with the terms of his suspension and is on track to start Week 13's game against the Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Next Sunday will mark exactly 700 days since Watson's last NFL game. He was allowed to return to the team facility on October 10 and has been allowed to practice for the past 2 weeks. Watson has been getting "a few reps" with the 1st-team offense but taking most of his snaps with the scout team, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Watson would be a risky Week 13 fantasy play considering how long he's been out. But he's worth rostering in fantasy leagues of 10+ teams and could be a recommended starter as early as Week 14. Watson has a neutral schedule from Weeks 14 through 17: at Bengals, vs. Ravens, vs. Saints, at Commanders.

Browns GM Andrew Berry said Wednesday that he expects QB Deshaun Watson to start once he's eligible to play, Week 13 at Houston. Duh. Cleveland didn't commit all those draft picks and dollars to sit Watson behind Jacoby Brissett. But it never hurts to get official confirmation.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson is allowed to re-join the team for limited activities on Monday. Per the terms of his suspension, Watson can now attend team meetings and participate in individual workouts with the strength staff. He's still not allowed to attend practices or games. Watson has been throwing for about 90 minutes 3 days per week with his personal QB coach Quincy Avery since his suspension officially started in early September, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watson will be allowed to practice starting on Nov. 14 and then play in Week 13 vs. the Texans on Nov. 28.
