The Cleveland Browns activated quarterback Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday, as expected. Mayfield and Keenum were both unavailable for the Week 15 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, which was moved to Monday. Browns fans can rest easy knowing that third-stringer Nick Mullens won't have to run the offense on Christmas Day against the Green Bay Packers. The Browns will also get top receiver Jarvis Landry back from the COVID list, so Mayfield will have his top receiver available. Still, Mayfield has been a low-end QB2 play all year in Cleveland's run first offense, and he's not worth streaming against a much-improved Packers defense on the road.
Cleveland Browns quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum did not test out of the NFL's COVID-19 protocols on Monday, according to league sources, meaning it will be Nick Mullens under center against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 15. The team had been holding out hope that they would get a negative test back from Mayfield in time, but instead Mullens will make his first NFL appearance since Week 14 of the 2020 season. There's a good chance that Mayfield will be back under center for Cleveland's Christmas Day game against the Green Bay Packers in Week 16. Mullens under center downgrades Cleveland's passing offense, especially considering he was just signed to the team's active roster from the practice squad earlier in the week. Running back Nick Chubb is the only safe fantasy option on the Browns this week.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Case Keenumtested positive for COVID-19, making him doubtful to play in Week 15 against the Las Vegas Raiders. In addition to starter Baker Mayfield (illness) also testing positive, the Browns are down to their third-stringer Nick Mullens. Fortunately, Mullens is probably among the best third string quarterbacks in the league, but this situation still makes all of the Browns' pass catchers unusable. However, although not usually the case, the combination of the Raiders poor defense and running back Kareem Hunt (ankle) being out could make up a terrific situation for Nick Chubb. With a desolated passing attack, Chubb will still be able to take advantage of his matchup for a huge game. Although Keenum's absence will harm the Browns, Chubb remains a high-level RB1.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Case Keenum completed 21 of 33 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown in a 17-14 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 7's Thursday Night Football game. Keenum, who drew the start with Baker Mayfield reportedly dealing with a fracture and a torn labrum in his left shoulder, mostly played well for Cleveland. His lone touchdown pass was a one-yard toss to fullback Johnny Stanton. He did dodge a bullet when the Browns recovered his fumble into the Denver end zone on a rushing attempt. With news coming out that Mayfield's shoulder injury is worse than initially reported, it wouldn't be a big surprise to see Keenum back out there in Week 8 when the Browns face the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Case Keenum will get his first start of the season in Week 7's Thursday Night Football game. Keenum will be under center on Thursday with starter Baker Mayfield ruled out with a left shoulder injury suffered in Week 6's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Keenum will face off against the Denver Broncos at home in what sets up as a tough matchup for the veteran signal-caller. Denver has shut down opposing quarterbacks through six weeks, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. Keenum will also be without Cleveland's top two running backs as Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (calf) are both out. Fantasy gamers in superflex and two-quarterback formats can start Keenum as a low-end QB2 but he's not a particularly strong option in Week 7.
The Cleveland Browns have announced that quarterback Case Keenum will start Thursday's game against the Denver Broncos. Browns starting QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) was adamant about playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder but is expected to be ruled out ahead of Thursday's game. Cleveland hasn't decided Mayfield's status beyond Week 7, but the former No.1 overall pick will now focus on rehab and tightening up his injured shoulder. Keenum has experience with Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski's offensive system from their time in Minnesota where he had his best season in 2017. Keenum completed 67.6% of his passes for 3,547 yards, with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Browns could be without most of its top offensive weapons in Week 7, making the 33-year-old a boom-or-bust option in Superflex/Two-QB formats.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Case Keenum completed nine of 12 passes for 74 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 17-13 win over the New York Giants in his team's second preseason game on Sunday. Keenum got off to a hot start on his first drive, marching the offense down the field in 10 plays, culminating in a touchdown pass to KhaDarel Hodge. He couldn't keep it going on his next drive, however, as he threw a red-zone interception at the New York 10-yard line. Keenum is expected to open the season as the primary backup to Baker Mayfield and serve as a veteran presence for the team.
The Cleveland Browns have brought in Case Keenum at quarterback late in the third quarter of their Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns' starting quarterback Baker Mayfield was dealing with a rib injury prior to the game and struggled mightily in nearly three quarters of work, completing 10 of 18 passes for 119 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He was sacked four times. The Steelers were up 31 to 7 at the time Mayfield was benched, so the team is likely being cautious with him in a game that looks to be out of reach.
The Cleveland Browns agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal with quarterback Case Keenum on Monday, according to a source. The deal will include $10 million guaranteed. The 32-year-old veteran signal-caller will serve as Baker Mayfield's backup in Cleveland. Keenum enjoyed the best season of his career in 2017 with Minnesota when he started 14 games and took the Vikings deep into the playoffs. He's predictably come back down to Earth the last two years with the Broncos and Redskins. The depth behind Mayfield was in question last year, but Keenum will provide an experienced and reliable backup. He won't have any fantasy value unless Mayfield is hurt or benched.
Washington Redskins impending free-agent quarterback Case Keenum is on the Cleveland Browns' radar, according to a league source. Cleveland is looking to bring in a veteran backup to Baker Mayfield that can help him grow and develop after a disappointing 2019 campaign. Drew Stanton missed all of last season with a knee injury and will be a free agent himself next month. Keenum, 32, worked with head coach Kevin Stefanski with the Vikings in 2017 when he led the team to an 11-3 record. He's thrown for 14,368 yards, 75 touchdowns and 47 interceptions for a career passer rating of 85.3, but he'd just be holding the clipboard for Mayfield in Cleveland.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum believes he's still capable of being a starter in the NFL, but he's not expecting to return to Washington in 2020 with Dwayne Haskins in the picture. The Redskins drafted Haskins with the 15th overall pick in 2019 for a reason. The soon-to-be 32-year-old signal-caller was impressed with the progress that Haskins made toward the end of the season. "I think Dwayne did an incredible job towards the end of the season, adapting and getting a lot better," Keenum said. "I think it's his team moving forward." Haskins has some nice weapons in Terry McLaurin, Steven Sims Jr. and Derrius Guice, but he won't be seen as anything more than an upside QB2 in fantasy drafts this fall.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum completed 18 of 37 passes for 206 yards against the Cowboys on Sunday, with a touchdown and a pick to round out his line. The final week of 2019 was just about business as usual for Keenum, as he never quite excelled in an admittedly poor Redskins offense. Time will tell what's next for the veteran journeyman, as he is set to become a free agent. Neither he nor Dwayne Haskins played consistently well enough to guarantee themselves a starting role next year, but Haskins at least has youth on his side in a rebuilding organization. If Keenum winds up leaving Washington and joining a team with a more attractive collection of skill players, his future value would get a lift. Then again, it'd be surprising to see him win a starting job in Week 1 no matter what team he's with.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum may be able to lift the fantasy profiles of a couple of his pass-catchers on Sunday, but he's far from a shoe-in to help fantasy owners in the same way. No one really knows which Cowboys team is going to show up in any given week, but they do have to win this game in order to keep what is left of their playoff hopes alive. As such, Keenum should have to put up with a spirited effort from a Cowboys Defense that has given up the 11th-fewest points per game to opposing offenses. In Keenum's back-and-forth journey from starter to injured to healthy backup this season, there's been very little fantasy success to hang your hat on. This is not a safe road to travel in championship week.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum was called on to fill in for the injured Dwayne Haskins in Sunday's overtime shootout against the Giants. The veteran completed 16 of 22 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown, adding a game-tying rushing touchdown in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter for good measure. Keenum's status as the QB for Week 17 will hinge on the severity of Haskins' ankle injury, as well as whether the Redskins feel compelled to take any chances with the rookie's health in a meaningless season finale. If Keenum holds onto the starting job to close out the year, it won't significantly alter the outlook for Redskins' pass-catchers.
Washington Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan said that quarterback Case Keenum (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol, but it's still possible that he plays in Week 9 against the Bills if he feels better on Friday. Keenum has been taking third-team repetitions at practice behind rookie Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy. It's more of a long shot that he'll play at this point, which would put Haskins in line to make his first career start. It would be bad timing, as he's looked really bad in limited duty so far this year, and Buffalo's defense is one of the scariest in the league. Either way, fantasy owners would have to be desperate to use Washington's starting QB this weekend, even in two-quarterback formats.
Washington Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan said that quarterback Case Keenum (concussion) will be the starter in Week 9 against the Bills if he's healthy. If he can't get cleared from the league's concussion protocol after suffering a head injury Thursday night, rookie Dwayne Haskins would get the start. The good news is that Keenum will have extra time to get over his head injury, but a date with Buffalo's strong defense on the road won't be good for whoever starts for the 'Skins next week. Keenum gives the Redskins the best chance to win in the short term, and Haskins has looked very overmatched in his little action so far in his rookie season. Washington's offense remains one of the worst in the NFL no matter who is under center.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum (concussion) suffered a concussion on Thursday night against the Vikings and has been ruled out for the second half. The journeyman quarterback was 12-for-16 for 130 yards without a touchdown or interception, but he did lose a fumble before leaving. He wasn't terrible, but he predictably wasn't great either against a strong Vikings Defense. Keenum will have extra time to clear the protocol before the Week 9 game, but there's still a chance the 'Skins go back to rookie Dwayne Haskins. Haskins will get the rest of the second half to try to lead the team to a comeback on the road.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum will look to bounce back from Sunday's 9-0 loss in which he threw for under 100 yards, but a date with Minnesota doesn't provide him with much more fantasy appeal. This should be interpreted more as a lack of faith in Washington's offense than a vote of confidence in the Vikings' relatively exploitable pass defense, but the point remains. The Redskins are averaging 12.9 points per game on offense, and they could be without both of Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson in the backfield. The hope here from a fantasy perspective is that Minnesota's suddenly explosive offense puts the Redskins up against a massive early deficit, thus forcing Keenum to air it out. Even if the Thursday night game unfolds as such, fantasy owners would be putting a ton of misguided faith in pass-catchers like Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn by starting Keenum in fantasy lineups. The reward does not outweigh the risk.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum completed nine of 12 passes for 77 yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. Terrible weather slowed down both of the offenses in this contest, and the Redskins ran the ball just well enough that airing it out through a hard rain would not have improved their chances of winning against San Francisco. Up next for Keenum is a rolling Vikings team on a short week, as the two NFC foes will face off on Thursday night in Minnesota.
Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson (quadriceps) and quarterback Case Keenum (foot, shoulder) both returned to a full practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. The Redskins were likely just resting their veterans on Wednesday, so expect Peterson and Keenum to be out there in Week 7 against the 49ers. Peterson had 20-plus carries and over 100 yards against the winless Dolphins in Week 6, but he'll have a much tougher time finding holes against San Fran's strong defense this Sunday. He makes for a low-upside RB3/flex. Keenum has a tough challenge ahead and not many weapons to work with. He's an unattractive low-end QB2.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum didn't have his best statistical performance on Sunday, completing just over 50% of his 25 pass attempts for 166 yards. What mattered more than any of that was the two touchdowns he threw to help the Redskins earn their first win of the 2019 season over the Dolphins. Keenum found his favorite target Terry McLaurin for scores of 25 and 33 yards, and to his credit committed zero turnovers. Washington's next opponent is a 49ers Defense that has routinely made capable offenses look bad this season, so Keenum's decent bounce-back game isn't enough to consider him a fantasy starter in Week 7.
Washington Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan named quarterback Case Keenum the starter for Week 6 against the Dolphins, with rookie Dwayne Haskins set to back him up. Colt McCoy will likely be inactive after starting in Week 5. Keenum racked up some big games earlier this year, but he's a turnover machine and will still be a shaky QB2, albeit with some upside against the lowly Dolphins on Sunday. Keenum being under center is good news for rookie wideout Terry McLaurin, although he's likely to be shadowed by cornerback Xavien Howard. Expect Washington to try to establish the ground game with Adrian Peterson early and often.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum (foot) has practiced in full both Wednesday and Thursday of this week. After being benched in Week 4 and then being replaced by Colt McCoy last week, the Redskins seem to be leaning towards going back to Keenum for a winnable Week 6 matchup with the Dolphins. You can't trust many Washington players in fantasy, but Keenum took a liking to rookie wide receiver Terry McLaurin in the first three games of the season. McLaurin has more WR3 upside with Keenum under center. If Keenum does get the nod this week, he'll be a more attractive QB2 going against Miami.
The Washington Redskins are expected to start quarterback Case Keenum in Week 6 against the Dolphins, assuming he's healthy, according to sources. Colt McCoy started in Week 5 and was predictably bad against the Patriots. Keenum wasn't terrible to begin the year other than turning the ball over left and right. It's hard to trust most of Washington's skill players no matter who is under center, but Keenum probably gives rookie receiver Terry McLaurin the highest fantasy ceiling. So at least there's that. In a matchup against the lowly Dolphins, Keenum will have QB2 appeal if he indeed starts the game.
Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum (foot) was limited in practice on Thursday, while tight end Vernon Davis (concussion) sat out for the second straight day. Keenum was in a walking boot on Wednesday, but the Redskins still aren't ruling him out for Week 5 against the Patriots after he was benched for poor performance in Week 4. Washington might take it down to the wire on Sunday morning before deciding if it will be Keenum, Colt McCoy or rookie Dwayne Haskins under center. Whoever it is, you should avoid them in fantasy. The Patriots Defense is once again an elite play. Davis looks to be doubtful for this weekend. With Jordan Reed (concussion) still out, Jeremy Sprinkle could have tight end duties all to himself this week. He can be safely avoided in this disaster of an offense, though.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
