Huddle Up: Kizer left the game in the second quarter due to migraines. After being cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol, he was permitted to return in the third quarter. He said after the game that the headaches are hereditary and he received medication to quell the symptoms. It was an ugly performance, though, and he isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues in Week 3 at Indianapolis.

Huddle Up: Kizer played well in his first regular season game and should continue to improve. He could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues but should stay on the bench next week when he faces a tough Baltimore Ravens defense.

Huddle Up: Kizer appears to be Cleveland's quarterback of the future, at least in the eyes of Jackson. He has shown promise this preseason and adds an extra dimension to the offense with his running ability. That being said, do not draft him as more than a bye-week replacement or a QB2 in two-quarterback leagues.

Huddle Up: In an ideal world, Kizer would get at least half of a season to adjust to the pro game, but Cleveland is from a perfect situation for any quarterback. However, there is no questioning the rookie's talent and he does have some talent to work with at receiver as well as a strong running game, so he could have some appeal to owners during bye weeks. As far as Week 1 is concerned, however, Pittsburgh figures to be a popular streaming D/ST option.

Huddle Up: KIzer finished 6-of-18 for 93 yards with no touchdowns and one interception, but he didn't get much help from his supporting cast either, as Kenny Britt dropped a pass at the Bucs' 5 and Duke Johnson fumbled the ball away at the Bucs' 10. The rookie's running ability will make him worthy of matchup-based starts during the season, but he figures to have a rough first season as a bit of a raw passer, making him more of a low-end QB2.

Huddle Up: Kizer didn't exactly wow in his start, and it remains to be seen if he will be named the starter for Week 1. Even if he wins the job, he doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues.

Huddle Up: Kizer has played well at times during the preseason, but he may struggle early in the season since he would be a rookie starter. Kizer likely will be selected in keeper leagues but should be avoided in most standard leagues.

Huddle Up: So much for that Brock Osweiler support. Kizer has upside, but he may not have the pieces around him to bust out as a rookie. He's a dynasty option for now, and he should sneak into two-QB leagues.
Posted: 8/21/2017 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer followed up his very impressive debut with a fine showing here, as he also engineered two scoring drives in his four possessions. While it doesn't seem like he'll get the first crack at the starting quarterback gig to open up the campaign, Kizer is certainly flashing notable potential for when he does receive the opportunity to start down the road.

Huddle Up: Jackson is pumping the brakes on Kizer, and fantasy owners should do the same. He has a big arm and intriguing upside, but he only needs to owned in keeper formats for now.
Posted: 8/10/2017 8:30pm ET
Huddle Up: The performance was encouraging, but Kizer still has a long way to go before he needs to be on the fantasy radar outside of keeper leagues.
Posted: 8/3/2017 6:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if he wins the starting job, Kizer wouldn't be more than a late-round flier in redraft leagues. He is a much more intriguing prospect in keeper formats.
Posted: 7/27/2017 5:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer may have had a nice first day of training camp, but that doesn't mean he should start vaulting up fantasy draft boards. More likely than not, he won't enter the new season as the team's starting quarterback, and even if he were to become the starter at some point, he wouldn't be a legitimate option in just about all leagues until he proves himself.
Posted: 7/12/2017 8:18am ET
Huddle Up: Kizer has tools, and there is always the possibility of a rookie making a big splash like Dak Prescott last year or RG III several years ago. However, the supporting cast around Kizer doesn't provide as much excitement as some of the other successful rookies in previous years. He could be worth a flyer as a backup if you land a stud QB, but he's better served in dynasty formats.
Posted: 7/8/2017 6:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Njoku is raw, but he should still see plenty of reps as a rookie thanks to a lack of competition. He is worth a flier in the final rounds of redraft leagues, and he needs to be stashed in all keeper formats.
Posted: 6/25/2017 1:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Kizer moves up to the top of the depth chart. Kizer should start some games this season even if he does not win the job out of camp. Owners in standard leagues should avoid whoever is the starting quarterback for the Browns this season, but Kizer should have value in keeper leagues if he is the starter.
Posted: 6/13/2017 6:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer will compete for the starting quarterback job during training camp but probably needs more time before he is ready to be the full-time starter. There is a chance that Kizer starts at some point in 2017, but he should only have value in keeper leagues.
Posted: 6/12/2017 3:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Kessler appears to still be the leading candidate for the starting job but will continue to compete with Osweiler and Kizer during training camp. Kizer appears to be performing well so far and could be the starter at some point this season. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Browns quarterback situation no matter who starts.
Posted: 5/31/2017 12:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer is expected to compete for the starting job during training camp but likely is a year or two away from starting. He would not have a lot of value even if he wins the job, so owners can avoid him in standard leagues. He will have some value in keeper leagues since he could be the quarterback of the future for the Browns.
Posted: 5/27/2017 12:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job but likely will be an underdog in the competition. Owners in fantasy leagues probably should avoid him even if he wins the starting job. Kizer could have some value in keeper leagues because he appears to be the quarterback of the future for the Browns.
Posted: 5/26/2017 6:27pm ET
Huddle Up: It still seems like a reach for Kizer to open the year as a starter, but he is going to have his chance to show his stuff at some point. He has all the physical traits you want in an NFL quarterback and is worth stashing in keeper formats.
Posted: 5/25/2017 8:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer is a longshot to start as a rookie, but his long-term potential makes him worth stashing in keeper formats.
Posted: 5/13/2017 2:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer will have a chance to win the starting job but probably is at least a year away from playing. He should be avoided in all standard leagues but could be a late-round pick in keeper leagues because of his potential.
Posted: 5/4/2017 7:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer has all the physical traits you look for in an NFL quarterback, and he should have a chance to start relatively soon. He is a boom-or-bust stash candidate in keeper leagues.
Posted: 5/2/2017 4:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer has a relatively easy path to the Browns' starting position with the not-so-threatening likes of Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan standing in his way. He will need time to get used to the NFL though. Don't expect anything close to a Dak Prescott-like rookie campaign from Kizer.
Posted: 4/28/2017 5:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Kizer could be a starting option for the Browns as soon as this season, but owners should avoid him in 2017 even if he starts. Owners in keeper leagues may consider him as a late-round option because he could become a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the future.
