Multiple reports on Sunday morning have confirmed that Browns QB Deshaun Watson (right shoulder) will not play in Week 4 vs. the Ravens. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero tweeted that Watson's warm-ups "didn't go as hoped" in pregame. In Watson's absence, Rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson will start at QB for the Browns. Thompson-Robinson appeared in a handful of preseason games this summer and performed well, showcasing his plus-rushing ability. We don't consider him a viable fantasy option outside of deep 2QB or superflex formats. Check out where he lands in our updated QB rankings.
