Browns will stick with QB DeShone Kizer rest of season

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Browns coach Hue Jackson benched quarterback DeShone Kizer in a couple of games earlier this season and gave Kevin Hogan the start in another, but Kizer’s four turnovers against the Jaguars in Sunday’s 19-7 loss won’t lead to another change.

Jackson said immediately after the loss that Kizer will start against the Bengals on Sunday and the five games to follow because the Browns need to have as much data on Kizer as possible when it comes to addressing the position in the offseason.

Related players: Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns feel they need to continue to see Kizer and let him play this season out to see exactly what they have in him for the future. As long as Kizer is healthy, it looks like he'll be under center.

Jags RB Leonard Fournette could be nagged by ankle rest of season

There were several times during Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns that Leonard Fournette said he felt throbbing pain in his right ankle.

Still, it didn’t stop him from rambling through the middle of the Browns’ defense, even though he came out the Jaguars’ 19-7 victory a few times because of his ankle.

After rushing for a season-low 33 yards last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, Fournette bounced back with a productive 111-yard performance on 28 carries in cold, rain and snowy conditions at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Fantasy Impact:

Fournette was listed as questionable to play. He tweaked his ankle last Sunday against the Chargers, was limited during practices on both Wednesday and Thursday, and then held out on Friday. Fournette was quoted as saying the best way for it to heal is to rest but he doesn't have the time for that. Fournette could miss some practices or be limited but it looks like he's going to try and play through the injury.

Sammie Coates, WR, Cleveland Browns, exited the game against the Jaguars in the first half and was declared questionable to return because of a knee/ankle injury. He was later downgraded to out.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 11. Fournette’s ankle “still isn’t right” and the Browns may think they can beat the lowly Browns without him. If he’s out, look for T.J. Yeldon to play a larger role than he did when Fournette missed Week 7 and Week 9. Ivory led the team with 40 touches in those two games, but Yeldon outplayed him with only 24 touches and even played ahead of Ivory in Week 10, out-touching Ivory 9-to-2.

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11. The Jaguars may elect to activate Dede Westbrook from injured reserve. Keelan Cole will probably play ahead of Westbrook in his first game back. Over the past three weeks, Cole has played 69% of the snaps, compiling 8 catches for 172 yards on 16 targets.

Jaguars K Josh Lambo (right hip) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week. This is a midweek downgrade so Lambo owners should keep an eye out for Jacksonville kicker news this weekend. If the team adds a kicker, it’ll be a bad sign for Lambo.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (knee) took limited practice reps all week. Lewis has 11 total targets in the last two games, so he’s a fairly significant part of the offense, and that was with a healthy Allen Hurns in the lineup. With Hurns out, there will be a few extra targets to go around—especially in the red zone—and Lewis should benefit from a very easy matchup (the Browns are No. 31 in TE aFPA).

Friday, November 17, 2017, 7:00pm

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) took limited practice reps again Friday. Lee was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go for a so-so matchup against the Browns. Over the last four games, Lee is averaging 71 yards and 0.50 touchdowns on 9.8 targets per game. He should be able to produce whenever he can avoid Jason McCourty, which should be about half the time.

Friday, November 17, 2017, 7:00pm

Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn (knee, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 11.

Friday, November 17, 2017, 7:00pm

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Crowell was removed from the injury report so he should play in a bad matchup against the Jaguars.

Friday, November 17, 2017, 7:00pm

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist, illness) took full practice reps all week. Bortles is a Sneaky Start against the Browns who are last in the league in QB aFPA.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Lewis has 11 total targets in the last two games, so he’s a fairly significant part of the offense, and that was with a healthy Allen Hurns in the lineup. With Hurns out, there will be a few extra targets to go around and Lewis should benefit from a very easy matchup (the Browns are No. 31 in TE aFPA).

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Over the last four games, Lee is averaging 71 yards and 0.50 touchdowns on 9.8 targets per game. He should be able to produce whenever he can avoid Jason McCourty, which should be about half the time.

Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn (knee) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Fournette is just getting some rest ahead of Week 11.
