QB - CLE
Week 7 Outlook
The Browns announced that Case Keenum will be the team’s starting quarterback on Thursday night against the Broncos.
Baker Mayfield has been ruled out due to his shoulder injury. Keenum will be operating without both Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (calf). Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is also banged up, so this isn't an appealing spot for Keenum. The Broncos D/ST is a nice start, though.
Browns' backup QB Case Keenum completed 9/12 passes for 74 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Saturday afternoon's win over the Giants.
Keenum looked good up until he threw an interception in the endzone to kill a drive before halftime. He has shown the ability to be a starting QB in the NFL and for fantasy. With his familiarity with HC Kevin Stefanski's offense, If Baker Mayfield were to go down, he could provide value as a bye week fill-in.
The Cleveland Browns agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback Case Keenum on a three-year deal worth $18 million that includes $10 million guaranteed, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The deal cannot be officially signed until free agency begins on Wednesday.
Keenum was seen by many as one of the top veteran backup quarterback options on the market, and the Browns agreed to terms with him quickly on the first day of the legal tampering period. After up-and-down seasons with the Vikings and Redskins, Keenum will be Baker Mayfield's backup in Cleveland.
Washington quarterback Case Keenum completed 18 of 37 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Keenum returned to the starting lineup with rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins sidelined, and he did not have much success as Washington lost big to Dallas in the Week 17 finale. Keenum finishes the season with 1,707 yards passing, 11 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
Washington quarterback Case Keenum is inactive for the team's Week 9 matchup against the Buffalo Bills as he continues to progress through the concussion protocol. Rookie Dwayne Haskins will start in his absence.
The Washington offense was actually moving the ball well against the Vikings before Keenum exited the game last Thursday, and interim head coach Bill Callahan has already said that he will returns as the starter once he is healthy. However, he will miss at least one game as he recovers from a concussion.
