Fantasy Football Rankings: Brandon Weeden Not Worth Roster Spot

Every fantasy owner is always looking to uncover the latest and greatest diamond in the rough toward the end of his or her fantasy draft. Since the NFL has turned so passing heavy, it's wise to invest in two capable quarterbacks for your team -- in case of injury, or just inconsistent play to your QB1.

When you're digging for a quarterback late in your draft, you can probably avoid Brandon Weeden. Weeden, who spent his collegiate career at Oklahoma State, is pre-ranked as the No. 27 quarterback in fantasy football by Yahoo! Sports.

There's not really a lot to like about Weeden's fantasy potential as a rookie. Sure, he's older than most rookies, but Cleveland's offensive situation isn't exactly ideal, although he can potentially lean on Trent Richardson and the running game to take some pressure off of him.

Still, the Browns lack true, established playmakers on offense. That fact, coupled with Weeden's inexperience, make Weeden a fantasy player to avoid.

You're much better off grabbing somebody like Sam Bradford or Ryan Fitzpatrick as your backup quarterback, or even Christian Ponder.
