Brandon Weeden re-signs with Texans

The Houston Texans and QB Brandon Weeden agreed to terms on a two-year, $4 million deal according to Around the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Brandon Weeden re-signing with the Texans verifies reports that Brian Hoyer is likely on his way out of Houston. Following horrific play in Dallas, Weeden was claimed by the Texans late in the season when their quarterback troubles became deeper. Weeden won both of his starts in Houston posting 305 passing yards and three touchdowns in those contests.

Brandon Weeden inches the Texans closer to a playoff birth

Brandon Weeden completed 15-of-24 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed the ball twice for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Texans Week 16 defeat of the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Weeden did not look like the same quarterback that we saw in Dallas. Although he was not spectacular he was effective and even elusive running for his first career touchdown. Bill O'Brien stated that Hoyer is still the starter when healthy, so Weeden should take a seat back on the bench in Week 17 with Hoyer expected to be cleared. It is promising for Houston fans that it looks like they have a competent backup should Hoyer get injured again.

Brandon Weeden leads the Texans to first win in Indy

Brandon Weeden completed 11-of-18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Texans Week 15 win over the Colts. Weeden entered the game in the second quarter after T.J. Yates tore his ACL.

Fantasy Impact

Weeden played pretty solid for only taking one first team rep in practice. It is unclear if Brian Hoyer will be cleared for the Texans Week 16 matchup against the Titans. If he is not cleared Weeden will indeed get the start.

Cowboys to evaluate QB situation after Brandon Weeden's third loss

After losing a third straight game with quarterback Brandon Weeden, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he would evaluate the quarterback position during the team’s bye week.

Fantasy Impact

Weeden lost three straight for the Dallas Cowboys but yesterday was his 11th straight loss in games he has started. With an extra week to learn the system and compete, Matt Cassel could start to see some first team reps. The Weeden led Cowboys continue to get off to slow starts and do not do enough of offense to win games. If the Cowboys are going to make a quarterback switch the bye week would be the time to do it. Tony Romo won't be on the field until the end of November at the earliest. A quarterback change could have a positive impact on the entire Dallas offense who are not producing quality fantasy points under Weeden.

Brandon Weeden quiet in loss to Saints

Brandon Weeden completed 16-of-26 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's 26-20 loss to New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

Weeden did not turn the ball over but had a largely uneventful night, save for a 67-yard hookup with Brice Butler in the third quarter and a 17-yard scoring strike to Terrance Williams that made it a 20-20 game with 1:51 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys, winless in two games since Weeden took over for injured starter Tony Romo, will host an unbeaten New England team coming off a bye in Week 5.
