Scouting report

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Detroit Lions

DeShone Kizer continues to be the Browns' starter, for now, although that doesn't mean he's going to continue to be their finisher. He did play the entire game the last time Cleveland took the field, and for the first time all season he didn't throw an interception. He didn't throw for a touchdown, but he did rush for his third score on the ground this season.

Kizer is a pretty poor option, because not only does he throw an interception in practically every game, but he hardly scores. He's only thrown for a touchdown in two of his seven games this season. He's a bad quarterback and shouldn't be viewed as an option for fantasy.

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Vikings (game in London)

DeShone Kizer was benched again last week after another bad game where he threw 0 touchdowns and 2 picks. His TD:INT ratio on the season is now 3:11 in six games. Not only has he played poorly, but he doesn't even finish most games, making him completely unreliable as a fantasy option.

Not only is he inherently a bad choice, but he goes up against the Vikings this week, who have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs. Minnesota has held quarterbacks under a 200-yard average in the last five games. Kizer is probably the worst choice at QB this week.

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Tennessee Titans

The Kevin Hogan experiment didn't work out and the Browns are now going back to DeShone Kizer. The rookie had been awful in his first five games, throwing at least 1 interception in each game (9 total) and only scoring a touchdown in two games.

He gets a great matchup this week against the Titans, but that doesn't mean he'll automatically perform well. He doesn't have many weapons to throw to and he hasn't been good so far this year. Kizer should be viewed as a poor QB option this week.

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. New York Jets

DeShone Kizer has had a rough rookie season, throwing just 3 touchdowns through four games while throwing a league-high 8 interceptions. He does have two additional scores on the ground, but he's been out-performed by several quarterbacks this season.

His struggles could continue this week against the Jets as New York has surprisingly had a solid pass defense this season. Through four games, no quarterback has had a 300-yard game against them, and in the last two weeks, they've only allowed 1 passing touchdown in each game.

Considering Kizer's poor performances this season, it's probably best to look for other options at QBs this week.

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

In a favorable matchup against the Colts last week, DeShone Kizer scored 3 touchdowns (2 pass, 1 rush) while throwing the ball a career-high 47 times. He was also intercepted 3 times and didn't play particularly well.

Three scores in a game is nice, but it came against one of the poorest defenses in the league. Looking at his other numbers, he really didn't play that well. In fact, he's had back-to-back games with 3 interceptions.

Kizer gets a decent matchup this week against the Bengals, but there's not really a reason to play him. He's struggled as a rookie so far, and there's a higher chance of him throwing a pick than a touchdown.

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Indianapolis Colts

DeShone Kizer started last week, came out, and then returned to action after dealing with a migraine headache. He probably should have stayed out, as he had a pretty poor performance. The rookie QB threw for 182 yards, no touchdowns, and had 4 turnovers.

To be fair, he was going against a tough Ravens defense last week. He gets a much easier task in Week 3 against a poor Colts defense that has allowed 300 yards passing in each of the first two games.

Kizer could be a sneaky play, but there are other, more reliable options out there this week.

CLE QB DeShone Kizer - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Baltimore Ravens

DeShone Kizer wasn't bad in his NFL debut last week. His passing stats weren't the best, thugh, throwing for 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and just 222 yards. But he also added a rushing score to round out his performance.

Kizer gets a tough matchup this week, though, as he faces a Ravens defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks so far, and that's including the Dolphins and Bucs who didn't even play last week. The Ravens forced multiple turnovers against the Bengals, and only gave up 170 passing yards in Week 1.

Considering his low passing numbers and the poor matchup, it's probably best to look elsewhere for a quarterback this week.
