2012 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-12-2012 by Matt De Lima
Although Brandon Weeden is the early favorite to start in Week 1, that endorsement is also a condemnation of Colt McCoy. The Browns are still a team that lacks a reliable group of receivers. Their top receiver, Greg Little, finished with the second-most drops in the NFL (14) in spite of only having the 17th-most targets. Supplemental draft pick Josh Gordon may need time to develop. Regardless, Weeden will have his work cut out for him. There's no question though that this offense will go through Trent Richardson, which will severely limit Weeden's fantasy production. Only dynasty owners and those in two QB leagues should take a long hard look at Weeden.
Update (8/12): The rookie out of Oklahoma State was a bit shaky in his preseason debut. On the bright side, he was officially named the starter, but Weeden still needs time to grow.
