The Browns elevated QB Joe Flacco from the practice squad and waived QB PJ Walker.
The Browns have yet to name a starter for Sunday against the Jaguars -- Dorian Thompson-Robinson is working his way back from a concussion -- but the elevation and waiving of Walker seem to indicate Flacco may get his second straight start for the Browns. Flacco went 23/44 for 254 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Cleveland's 36-19 loss last week to the Rams. Flacco is QB21 on our board this week.
Watson's hamstring issues rear their ugly head again this season after Watson missed the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury. Watson was on quite a roll with four touchdowns in the last three weeks, helping the Packers to three straight win -- including last week's upset of the Chiefs -- to get the Packers to 6-6 and inside the playoff picture with five weeks left. His absence will certainly open up more opportunities for Jayden Reed (40-513-5) and Romeo Doubs (45-505-7).
Jones was able to practice all week. Even in a limited fashion, it was a good step for Jones after missing the last two games with a knee injury. We'll see how the Packers want to work him with AJ Dillon not as effective and the Packers now very much in the playoff picture.
This isn't great news for Seahawks fantasy pieces, let alone Drew Lock as a fantasy option.
The last time we saw Lock with significant playing time was the final three games of the Broncos season in 2021. He would throw one touchdown and 560 yards on 82 pass attempts. He shouldn't be considered in any league type, if possible.
