    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler completed 10 of his 19 pass attempts for 121 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in relief of QB DeShone Kizer in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Kizer was given the hook after a pair of interceptions, but Kessler didn't really do anything to lead the team. As usual, the Cleveland quarterback situation is a mess and should be avoided for fantasy purposes.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler was a perfect 7-for-7 on his pass attempts for 60 yards in the team's second preseason contest Monday, August 21, against the New York Giants. He also rushed two times for six yards.

    Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler has mostly floundered through his first two preseason efforts, which might open up the door for Kessler to retake the reins as Cleveland's starting quarterback if this continues. With some solid talent around him, the sophomore signal-caller could carve out some QB2 value, though he wouldn't be a recommended option at the onset of the campaign.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler could begin the season as the starter, but he doesn't fit the mold head coach Hue Jackson likes as a starting quarterback, according to beat writer Mary Kat Cabot. Jackson likes a tall, mobile quarterback with a big arm and quick decision-making skills. Kessler falls below Jackson's 6-foot-2 threshold and doesn't have the deep-ball skills Jackson covets.

    Huddle Up: Kessler will have to hold off DeShone Kizer in camp, and it's possible he could beat out the rookie. Kessler has improved his arm strength this offseason. However, Kessler doesn't have a lot of fantasy appeal except in deeper two-QB leagues.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler increased his arm strength this offseason and said the added strength will allow him to be more aggressive. 'Being able to push the ball down the field and having that confidence and knowing that you can get it there and put a little more on it is something that definitely helps you,' Kessler said.

    Huddle Up: Kessler appears to be the favorite for the starting spot, but he merits very little fantasy appeal right now.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will receive the first snaps during drills this offseason because he has earned the right, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Kessler is the leading candidate for the starting job but will have to compete for the job during training camp. He has some decent stats when he played in 2016 but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues if he is the starting quarterback.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler completed two of his three pass attempts for 11 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers, finishing up for the injured QB Robert Griffin III (concussion).

    Huddle Up: Kessler could get the starting nod in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he would obviously have very little fantasy appeal in that matchup.

    Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) has been ruled out for the team's Week 12 game Sunday, Nov. 27, versus the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here, as Kessler sustained his second concussion in a month last weekend, and it's possible the club may shut him down for the rest of the year in this lost season. Josh McCown will take over at quarterback, and considering the Browns usually fall behind by large amounts, he'll have potential to post some big stat-lines from here on out with plenty of garbage time. He could end up being a serviceable QB2.
