QB - Cleveland Browns
Jeff Driskel completed 13 of his 26 passes for 166 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in a 31-14 loss to the Bengals in Week 18 while adding 33 yards on seven carries.
Driskel was just added to the active roster earlier in the week but got the start with Cleveland resting Joe Flacco and several other key players in the season finale. Both of Driskel's TDs came in the fourth quarter and went to David Bell. He will go back to a reserve role when the Browns face the Texans in the Wild Card round.
Veteran QB Jeff Driskel will start for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday as they face off against the Cincinnati Bengals in their season finale.
With the Browns stuck with the fifth seed, they will opt to rest starters against Cincy, who are playing for a slim chance at a playoff berth. Driskel will be the fifth starter at QB for Cleveland this season, and it will be the sixth-year QB's first start since the 2022 season with the Houston Texans. Driskel is 1-9 in his career and formerly played with Cincinnati — P.J. Walker will serve as his backup.
The Cardinals signed QB Jeff Driskel to their practice squad Wednesday.
Driskel will give the Cardinals a backup quarterback should the team not activate QB Kyler Murray prior to Sunday. Fantasy managers can leave the veteran Driskel on the waiver wire.
Jeff Driskel has been released by the Arizona Cardinals.
Driskel was one of the many veterans competing for the starting job in Arizona, but he didn't win and is now being released. He will hit the open market, and there's always the possibility that someone signs him as a backup at some point in the season.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, veteran QB Jeff Driskel signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals.
With the uncertainty surrounding the date of QB Kyler Murray's return from injury, the Cardinals add another veteran signal-caller to compete for the job in his absence. Driskel, who has played five seasons with Cincinnati, Detroit, Denver and Houston, will compete with Colt McCoy and former Lions teammate David Blough.
