Huddle Up: Osweiler will serve as Denver's No. 2 quarterback behind Trevor Siemian, while Paxton Lynch (shoulder) spends the next few weeks recovering from a sprained shoulder. However, he won't see the field barring an emergency and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.
Posted: 8/23/2017 2:36pm ET
Huddle Up: This isn't much more than speculation at this point, but Osweiler just isn't cutting it in the NFL. Kizer has outperformed his counterpart in the preseason. The starting job appears to be the rookie's to lose, just don't start him on fantasy squads.
Posted: 8/23/2017 7:43am ET
Huddle Up: The third preseason game is the closest thing to a regular season game that exists, and he's not even playing. He was a middling QB2 when he had steam for the starting job, but he should probably be avoided now.
Posted: 8/21/2017 8:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler is expected to be Cleveland's starting quarterback going into the new season, but he has exhibited nothing to warrant being drafted in pretty much any league. In fact, if he does land the gig, it's highly probable he doesn't even make it through the year as the starter. Rookie DeShone Kizer looked solid for the second consecutive week and will inevitably take over at some point.
Posted: 8/16/2017 4:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler will be starting his second straight preseason game this week and appears to be performing well during practice. Owners can continue to monitor the situation to see which quarterback will start, but the winner of the job should not be owed in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/16/2017 2:02pm ET
Huddle Up: We'll see if Osweiler can stave off the promising rookie, Kizer, for a couple more weeks. The Browns could use some new blood, and Kizer has running ability, too. The bottom line, though, is that there should be no Cleveland quarterback starting for any fantasy squad on a weekly basis.
Posted: 8/12/2017 2:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler started the first preseason game, but Kizer played well during the game. It is not known which quarterback will start the second preseason game, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the week. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can avoid whichever quarterback is named the starter, but Kizer would be an option in keeper leagues if he starts.
Posted: 8/7/2017 5:11am ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler should be avoided in fantasy except in deeper leagues that use two quarterbacks.
Posted: 8/3/2017 2:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler is competing with Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer for the starting job. The Browns probably will not decide on a starting quarterback until they play a few preseason games. Osweiler has had some success in the past but would only be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.
Posted: 7/11/2017 11:46am ET
Huddle Up: Quarterback competitions are usually enticing, but it's hard to be excited about the Browns' current situation at the position. Kessler seems to have a slight edge on the rookie Kizer, but who knows how this will play out during training camp and the preseason. All three can be avoided in traditional leagues.
Posted: 5/25/2017 7:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler could overtake Cody Kessler for the starting job, but even as the starter, he wouldn't be more than a low-end QB2.
Posted: 5/6/2017 1:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Kessler had some success last season but struggled with injuries. Owners in all fantasy leagues should avoid whoever the starting quarterback is in 2017. Kizer will have some value in keeper leagues since there is a good chance that he will be the starting in a few years.
Posted: 4/29/2017 6:44am ET
Huddle Up: Even if Kizer is named Cleveland's No. 1 quarterback, he should be avoided outside of keeper and dynasty fantasy formats. There is a good chance that the Browns will release Osweiler but the team is still on the lookout for a veteran QB to bridge the gap while Kizer gets accustomed to the offense.
Posted: 4/19/2017 10:33am ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler will presumably compete with Cody Kessler for the starting job, assuming the Browns don't select a quarterback on the first day of the draft next week. Regardless of whom Cleveland adds on offense in the draft, the winner of the quarterback competition will struggle to be anything more than than a low-end fantasy QB2.
Posted: 4/17/2017 9:54pm ET
Huddle Up: The Browns have gone on record of saying that they plan on dumping Osweiler, so this is a pretty surprising development. Even so, even if he does manage to remain with the team going into the upcoming campaign, he probably wouldn't be starting under center. Thus, he'll have no worth for fantasy owners.
Posted: 4/4/2017 7:11pm ET
Huddle Up: If Cleveland is to dispose of Osweiler, they'll have to cut him, as it seems extremely unlikely they'll find a trading partner. Either way, it appears to be definite that the former Houston Texans starting quarterback will have a new home in 2017. At this rate, he won't have any fantasy value entering the new season.
Posted: 3/26/2017 10:20am ET
Huddle Up: It is anyone's guess as to whether or not Cleveland will draft a quarterback on the first two days of the draft - a move that would probably signal the end of Osweiler's short stay - or if he'll eventually get a shot to start. Either way, owners can safely avoid him in fantasy in 2017.
Posted: 3/12/2017 10:05am ET
Huddle Up: If all the details of this report are true, it would help explain why the Texans showed no interest in giving Osweiler another chance to prove himself in 2017 after a disastrous first season. Osweiler will likely be released soon if the Browns can't find a trade partner, while Houston will almost certainly spend a high draft pick on fixing their quarterback situation, even if it adds Tony Romo at some point.
Posted: 3/9/2017 12:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Presuming this is accurate, the once-promising future of Osweiler is in free-fall. Regardless of his status for 2017, he should not be trusted as anything more than deep roster filler in cavernous leagues.
Posted: 3/9/2017 12:43pm ET
Huddle Up: The Texans are now primed to either trade for or sign Tony Romo. This would be an upgrade for DeAndre Hopkins and company, while the Browns' passing game still remains untouchable, aside from Terrelle Pryor if he is re-signed. Stay tuned Houston to sign Romo, but continue to ignore Osweiler and Robert Griffin III for fantasy purposes.
Posted: 2/2/2017 7:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite Kubiak's optimism, Osweiler likely played himself into a quarterback competition with his poor performance this season. Even if he breaks camp as the starter, he doesn't need to be drafted.
Posted: 1/16/2017 10:04am ET
Huddle Up: The odds are overwhelming Houston adds a quarterback via the draft or free agency who can give Osweiler and/or Tom Savage a run for their money. With most if not all of the league's top-ranked defense likely to return in 2017, the pressure will be on the Texans' brass to improve the offense to the point to where they can make a Super Bowl run. A first-round quarterback selection cannot be ruled out, nor can the possibility Osweiler becomes the league's most highly paid backup.
Posted: 1/15/2017 7:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite signing a big deal to join the Texans, Osweiler is no lock to start in 2017 after a terrible season. Even if he does start, he doesn't need to be drafted.
Posted: 1/14/2017 9:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Thus ends a wildly inconsistent and mostly disappointing season for Osweiler, who found C.J. Fiedorowicz from 10 yards out for his only score. Despite being only one season into a four-year, $72 million deal, the Texans will need to seriously consider adding another signal-caller in the offseason after spending most of 2016 calling plays out of fear their top quarterback would lose games for them. Osweiler will be far off the fantasy radar in most leagues in 2017.
Posted: 1/7/2017 5:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Compared to his usual numbers, this was a strong outing from Osweiler. A much tougher matchup likely awaits him next week, and he will be a reach for fantasy owners, even has a low-priced DFS play.
Posted: 1/4/2017 9:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler is back in the starting lineup after a brief benching, and with Tom Savage ruled out for the playoff game, the Texans have no other choice but to live and die with Osweiler. He has been awful this year, but with limited options available and a friendly matchup against the Raiders, he could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS games.
Posted: 1/3/2017 10:40am ET
Huddle Up: This news likely confirms the playoffs will kick off with Osweiler and rookie Connor Cook under center. Riveting. Tom Savage is still in the league's concussion protocol and didn't exactly perform well enough in his brief time as the starter to give the Texans a reason to wait for him to return. Osweiler did manage to get DeAndre Hopkins involved last week, but it is going to be difficult to trust any Texan offensive players outside of Lamar Miller and perhaps C.J. Fiedorowicz this weekend.
Posted: 1/1/2017 12:21pm ET
Huddle Up: This could be worth monitoring in the coming days. Obviously Savage's health comes first, so the team may have to go with Osweiler in postseason play if Savage isn't cleared in concussion protocol. If you take part in playoff leagues, this will be a big factor. Otherwise, if your season is over, there could be a battle at QB heading into 2017.
Posted: 12/16/2016 6:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler hasn't been able to push the ball down the field all year, and he didn't even manage 100 passing yards against Jacksonville the first time around. He should be avoided in all formats in Week 15.
Posted: 12/15/2016 5:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler threw for a season-low 99 yards the first time he faced Jacksonville, and he shouldn't be starting in any format when he faces them again in Week 15.
Posted: 12/11/2016 9:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has not only struggled this season, but he has been getting worse lately. He offers very little to fantasy owners, especially at this critical juncture of the season.
Posted: 12/4/2016 6:09pm ET
Huddle Up: It was just Osweiler's fifth multi-touchdown game of the season and sixth outing in 12 starts with a completion percentage of 62.9 percent or better. He still remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 14.
Posted: 11/27/2016 10:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler continues to make plenty of mistakes and this game resulted in a season-low 45.5 QB Rating. He cannot be trusted in fantasy leagues outside of formats requiring two starting signal callers.
Posted: 11/21/2016 9:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler faced a favorable pass defense, but he still didn't do much and was on the losing end, too. Osweiler has been one of the bigger busts among the offseason signings, and he is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in most fantasy formats.
Posted: 10/30/2016 1:02pm ET
Huddle Up: The Texans have been perfect at home this season, so this might not come as a surprise. Osweiler is still a risky bet to play because of his up-and-down nature, but keep an eye on the matchups. Osweiler may be a better play at home, where he has thrown eight of his nine touchdowns.
Posted: 10/27/2016 6:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has underwhelmed and is coming off a brutal performance, but he could have value as a DFS sleeper against a porous Detroit secondary in Week 8.
Posted: 10/26/2016 9:23pm ET
Huddle Up: The Lions have a solid front seven to apply pressure, but this might finally be the game Osweiler breaks out and posts solid fantasy numbers. In deeper fantasy leagues Osweiler is a good streaming option if you need a bye-week replacement or your primary matchup has a difficult matchup.
Posted: 10/26/2016 4:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has not been worth his $12 million contract this year, not even close. But, he does have one of the best matchups of the week against the Detroit Lions. Detroit has yielded 18 touchdowns through the air this year -- tied for most in the NFL. You may not want to start him in seasonal leagues, but Osweiler is a cheap contrarian option in daily formats.
Posted: 10/25/2016 2:37pm ET
Huddle Up: The Texans may not be benching Osweiler, but fantasy coaches should be. Osweiler has thrown only eight touchdowns while throwing an equal amount of interceptions. He has been one of the most underwhelming players in the NFL through seven weeks and does not belong in the starting quarterback slot on fantasy rosters.
Posted: 10/24/2016 9:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has not jelled very well with DeAndre Hopkins, he had accuracy issues all evening and he rarely looked downfield. He has very little fantasy appeal heading into Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.
Posted: 10/22/2016 1:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has thrown eight touchdowns and eight interceptions in six games this season and will be facing a strong Denver Broncos pass defense in Week 7. Owners in all leagues probably should avoid Osweiler this week.
Posted: 10/21/2016 6:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler is on track to play in Week 7, but mediocre numbers and matchup with Denver's stout defense make him a poor fantasy play.
Posted: 10/21/2016 6:30am ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has struggled with a 59 percent completion percentage, 1,402 yards, eight scores and eight picks. He returns to face his former team in the Denver Broncos, and he's not a strong play except in two-QB leagues.
Posted: 10/9/2016 4:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler hasn't looked very good this season, throwing for six touchdowns and seven interceptions in five games, and he has tossed for 196 or fewer yards in two of his past three games. He is only worth fantasy attention in leagues which require two starting QBs.
Posted: 10/2/2016 5:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler bounced back from a disaster last week with the two touchdowns, but he also had two more picks and has turned it over six times in four games. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 and beyond.
Posted: 9/23/2016 9:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Osweiler has three touchdowns and four picks through three games, and he looks like a low-end QB2 at this point.
