Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling posted three grabs for a game-best 43 yards on eight targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, working most of the game with backup QB DeShone Kizer.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling ended up with 38 catches, 581 yards and two touchdowns, not a bad rookie season. He appears to be a player with a bright future heading into 2019, perhaps competing for the No. 2 job behind Davante Adams. MVS is one to watch for fantasy purposes as a sleeper.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer or a veteran quarterback could be starting for the Browns in Week 1 if head coach Hue Jackson has his way. Jackson said it would be best to not start a rookie quarterback right away, even if Cleveland chooses that player with the No. 1 overall draft pick. Jackson added that the Browns could pursue a quarterback in free agency.
Huddle Up: The Browns are widely expected to indeed select a gunslinger with their first pick, but they do have the salary cap to pursue any free agent at any position, including Kirk Cousins. The bottom line is anyone not named Kirk Cousins who starts for the Browns should not be viewed as an every-week fantasy starter.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 18-for-36 for 182 yards and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Kizer has gone three straight games with at least two interceptions and has struggled for most of the season. He should start again next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers but should be avoided in all leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will continue to be the starting quarterback, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: Much of Kizer's rookie campaign has been forgettable, including the Week 15 shellacking at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens. Kizer surrendered another three turnovers in the loss but Jackson is sticking with his quarterback in another lost season for the Browns. The rookie can safely be dropped if he hasn't been already.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 20-for-37 for 146 yards and two interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15. He also rushed for 35 yards on seven carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Kizer has thrown at least two interceptions in six games this season and has 19 interceptions on the season. He probably will start the final two games but should be avoided in all leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 20 of his 28 pass attempts for 214 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Green Bay Packers and he ran twice for seven yards but he was unable to secure his first NFL win.
Huddle Up: The three touchdowns were a career high, and it was just his second multi-TD of the season. Still, he came up short in overtime looking for his first victory. He has shown some improvement lately, but the results on the scoreboard remain the same - losses.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed just 15 of his 32 pass attempts for 215 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: The rookie quarterback also rushed five times for a team-high 46 yards, but he was the only effective ball carrier for the winless Browns and he also lost a fumble. He is only worth a look as a low-end QB2 in the deepest of fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers heading into Week 14 and beyond.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 18 of his 31 pass attempts for 268 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Kizer also added a rushing touchdown, finishing with nine totes for 39 yards. He'll look to keep improving in Week 13 on the road against the Chargers, but for now he remains nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers.
