The NFL -- via Judge Sue Robinson -- has suspended Browns QB Deshaun Watson for the 1st 6 games of the season for violating the personal-conduct policy. The NFLPA has said it would not challenge her ruling. The league has 3 days to file an appeal. This is obviously a positive outcome for the fantasy football outlook of Watson and the Browns offense. Expect Jacoby Brissett to start the 1st 6 contests.

Multiple outlets report that Sue Robinson is expected to issue her ruling on league discipline for Browns QB Deshaun Watson on Monday. The NFLPA has announced that it will not appeal the decision. Now we just wait to find the specific number of games.

The Browns signed former 1st-round QB Josh Rosen to a 1-year deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It’s a depth move for a Browns squad that’ll also enter camp with Jacoby Brissett and Josh Dobbs behind Deshaun Watson. News on Watson’s suspension length could come any day now.

Tony Rizzo of ESPN Cleveland says Browns QB Deshaun Watson may miss less than half the upcoming season as discipline for the mountain of sexual-misconduct allegations against him. "Right now, I'm hearing 4-6 games ... from reliable sources," Rizzo says. Watson has sunk into QB3 territory in best-ball tournament drafts on Underdog recently, with most people expecting a full-season suspension. If a mere 4-6 game ban materializes, he'd be a tournament-tilting value anywhere in that range. It's still tough to know, of course, just how much longer we'll have to wait to get the official word. So there will remain plenty of risk to Watson in the meantime.

Pro Football Network reports that the NFLPA has "concern" that the league wants to suspend Browns QB Deshaun Watson for the whole 2022 season, "if not indefinitely." We'll see what finally happens, but we sure seem to be trending toward a decision before the regular season. And anything short of a year seems likely to get the NFL vilified. If you're drafting best-ball rosters right now, it's probably best to just pass on Watson. Of course, his stock is falling everywhere. Watson's currently QB24 in Underdog drafts. So there's obviously fantasy upside to taking a shot if you so choose and he plays at all.

The Browns traded QB Case Keenum to the Bills for a 7th-round pick. Keenum replaces QB Mitchell Trubisky as QB Josh Allen's backup. Cleveland then signed QB Jacoby Brissett, who would be in line to start if QB Deshaun Watson is suspended.

Dolphins QB Jacoby Brissett injured his right knee in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. That's forced QB Tua Tagovailoa onto the field, despite his left finger injury. We'll update Brissett's status when we know more.

Update: Brissett has been cleared to return, according to the NFL Network broadcast crew, but Tagovailoa is in the game.

Dolphins QB Jacoby Brissett will start tonight's game vs. the Ravens, NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe reports. QB Tua Tagovailoa will be active as the backup, as he continues to deal with that fracture to the middle finger of his throwing hand. Wolfe adds that the Dolphins "hope" Tagovailoa will be back for next week's game vs. the Jets. Brissett is a lower-end QB2 in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. He'll be a game-time decision. "Plan is to make a decision on where Tua’s grip, discomfort and ability to make every throw is after pregame workout," NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe tweeted. QB Jacoby Brissett will start if Tua can't. Both guys are only in play in 2-QB fantasy leagues.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores labeled QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) a game-time decision for Thursday night's meeting with the Ravens. Dealing with a small fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand, Tagovailoa reportedly couldn't throw hard enough in pregame warmups this past weekend to play vs. the Texans. He'd obviously be a risky fantasy play if he starts Thursday night's game.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is dealing with a small fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. He's active but only as QB Jacoby Brissett's backup vs. the Texans today. While this isn't a long-term injury, per Schefter, Tagovailoa's availability for this Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens is "in question." We'll keep an eye on him this coming week.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs, finger) will not start today's game vs. the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tua reportedly didn't feel good enough during pre-game warmups to start, but he will be active as QB Jacoby Brissett's backup. It's a missed opportunity in an excellent matchup. Brissett was decent in 3 starts earlier this season, averaging 230 yards and 1.3 TDs on a 67% completion rate but just 5.8 yards per attempt. He's only in play in 2-QB and Superflex leagues and is a slight downgrade for Miami's offense.

Dolphins QB Jacoby Brissett hurt his hamstring in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bucs and was carted to the locker room. He's officially questionable to return, but it sounds like we shouldn't expect him back. QB Reid Sinnett is Miami's backup today. Ouch.

Update: Brissett returned on Miami's next possession.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is expected to be ready to play when he's eligible to come off IR in Week 6, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. QB Jacoby Brissett was serviceable in last week's overtime loss to the Raiders and will start vs. the Colts today and the Bucs next week. But a healthy Tagovailoa should be an upgrade over Brissett the rest of the way.

The Dolphins are placing QB Tua Tagovailoa on IR for his fractured ribs. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 contests. The team reportedly hopes to get the QB back for Week 6. Until then, it's Jacoby Brissett ... which means it's also time to queue up fantasy defenses playing against Miami. That's the Raiders this week, then the Colts and Buccaneers. If Tagovailoa makes it back for Week 6, he'd get a nice pair of matchups with Jacksonville and then Atlanta.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores said Wednesday that, after further testing, QB Tua Tagovailoa has been diagnosed with fractured ribs and will miss this weekend's game against the Raiders. Tua's availability beyond Week 3 is uncertain. It'll be Jacoby Brissett under center for however long Tagovailoa is out. Brissett was bad in relief this past Sunday, finishing 24 of 40 for 169 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. Downgrade Miami's passing game under Brissett.

Additional testing on Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa's injured ribs revealed no "major issues," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "So it’ll be about pain tolerance and functionality moving forward.," Pelissero adds. We'll need to keep an eye on Tua's practice participation and progress this week. If he can't play vs. the Raiders on Sunday, it'll be Jacoby Brissett under center for Miami.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa has been diagnosed with bruised ribs, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. X-rays came back negative, and Tua will get an MRI on Monday "He's in a lot of pain," Pelissero adds.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered a rib injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bills. He was in obvious pain and took a cart back to the locker room. Tagovailoa is officially questionable to return. QB Jacoby Brissett is in for Miami.

The Dolphins have agreed to a 1-year deal with QB Jacoby Brissett, according to multiple reports. That gives Miami a new backup behind franchise QB Tua Tagovailoa. Assuming we don't get a Deshaun Watson-to-South Beach trade, Tagovailoa should enter his 2nd year with a less threatening presence than Ryan Fitzpatrick behind him on the depth chart.
