Player Outlook
Brissett heads into the season as the backup to Sam Howell in Washington, which is why he'll only find a Fantasy home in deep two-QB formats with a late-round pick. He admirably filled in for Cleveland through its first 11 games, averaging 17.5 Fantasy points per game with 20-plus points in four starts. If given the opportunity to play for the Commanders, his chances at some solid games stem from his penchant for throwing deep, which he did on 13% of his attempts in 2022. It's reasonable to target him late in multi-passer leagues and patiently wait for him to get his chance in D.C. if second-year thrower Sam Howell struggles.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Healthy inactive for Week 18

    Brissett (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. After a hamstring injury prevented him from making his first start of the season in the Commanders' Week 17 loss to the 49ers, Brissett looked as though he would be ready to suit up for the regular-season finale versus Dallas, albeit in the backup role he's handled throughout the campaign. Despite closing the week with a pair of full practices and avoiding a designation for Sunday's contest, Brissett will end up on the inactive list for the second week in a row. Jake Fromm will suit up as the No. 2 quarterback behind Sam Howell, while Brissett's time in Washington could be over. He's scheduled for free agency this offseason after he completed 18 of 23 pass attempts for 224 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions across his three relief appearances in 2023.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Still limited, won't start Week 18

    Brissett (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Though he was initially named the Commanders' starting quarterback for Week 17, Brissett was ultimately inactive for Sunday's 27-10 loss to the 49ers due to the hamstring injury he suffered in practice last Thursday. While the fact that Brissett is practicing in some capacity to kick off Week 18 prep is a positive sign, he'll be stuck in a backup role if he's cleared to play in this Sunday's season finale versus the Cowboys. Head coach Ron Rivera has already announced that Sam Howell will retain starting duties for Week 18.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Out for Week 17

    Brissett (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers. On Wednesday, head coach Ron Rivera named Brissett the Commanders' starting quarterback for Week 17 after the veteran signal-caller replaced Sam Howell for the second game in a row last weekend and nearly led Washington to a come-from-behind victory in an eventual 30-28 loss to the Jets. Unfortunately for Brissett, he'll have to wait until at least Week 18 against the Cowboys to make his first start, as he told the team Thursday that he was dealing with tightness in his hamstring and was then a limited participant in Friday's practice before carrying a questionable tag into the weekend. Brissett didn't show enough improvement in a pregame workout to give it a go Sunday, so he'll be inactive as the emergency third quarterback while Howell sticks as the Commanders' starter and newly signed Jake Fromm serves as the No. 2 signal-caller.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Not likely to play Sunday

    Brissett (hamstring) doesn't appear likely to play Sunday versus the 49ers, but the Commanders will evaluate him in a pregame workout before making a decision on his status, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Brissett is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game after he finished Week 17 prep as a limited practice participant, but at this stage, he looks poised to turn the Washington offense back over to the struggling Sam Howell, whom Brissett replaced in both of the past two games. On Wednesday, head coach Ron Rivera announced that Brissett was replacing Howell as the team's starting quarterback, but Brissett reported tightness in his hamstring to the team Thursday before his reps were capped in Friday's session. Brissett thus will be subject to the pregame workout in order to get a sense of his ability to handle the rigors of game action, with his status becoming known when Washington posts its inactives about 90 minutes before a 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Washington signed Jake Fromm off its practice squad Saturday, an indication the team doesn't expect to have Brissett available as anything more than an emergency No. 3 quarterback.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Could be game-time call

    Brissett (hamstring) is trending toward being a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Per Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site, Brissett, who had been named the team's Week 17 starting QB on Wednesday, was added to the injury report Friday as questionable after dealing with hamstring tightness. If Brissett is unavailable for Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET contest, Sam Howell will step back in as Washington's starter.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Added to injury report as questionable

    Brissett was a limited practice participant Friday due to a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports that Brissett informed coaches of his hamstring tightness after team meetings Thursday. The QB got treatment Friday morning and still managed to practice in a limited capacity, but there's now some doubt about his ascension to the starting role, which was announced by coach Ron Rivera on Wednesday. If Brissett ends up unable to play ahead of the Commanders' 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, fellow quarterback Sam Howell will make his 16th start of the season.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Named Week 17 starter

    Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that Brissett will start Sunday's game against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After coming on to replace the struggling Sam Howell in the third quarter of this past Sunday, Brissett came close to leading Washington to a comeback win before the Commanders ultimately fell to the Jets, 30-28. He made enough of an impression in relief to replace Howell as the team's starting quarterback, with Brissett completing 10 of 13 passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. With only two games left in the regular season, Brissett will presumably start Week 18 against the Cowboys, provided he acquits himself well enough versus San Francisco.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Provides spark in relief

    Brissett completed eight of his 10 passes for 124 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Rams. He added two rushes for nine yards. Brissett entered the game in relief of Sam Howell midway through the fourth quarter with the Commanders down 28-7. He provided an immediate spark to the team's offense, leading a five-play, 67-yard drive that ended in a 29-yard touchdown pass to Terry McLaurin. Brissett had similar success on Washington's next possession, which concluded with a three-yard touchdown toss to Curtis Samuel. Despite Brissett's performance, coach Ron Rivera announced after the game that Sam Howell will remain the team's starter moving forward, per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Solid to finish preseason

    Brissett completed 10 of 15 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 21-19 preseason loss to the Bengals. Brissett started and played the first three drives in a game where both teams held out all their key players. The 30-year-old will back up Sam Howell when the Commanders open the regular season Sept. 10 against the Cardinals.

  • Commanders' Jacoby Brissett: Has confidence of coach

    Coach Ron Rivera cautioned reporters Tuesday that they shouldn't "sleep on" Brissett, who has done a "nice job" at training camp, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Rivera said back in June that Brissett was in the running for the starting job, even though Sam Howell had been getting all the first-team reps in spring practices. Howell is still dominating those reps during training camp, but at the very least Rivera is making it clear he's confident in his backup, which makes sense given that Brissett's track record places him among the better No. 2 QBs in the league. That reality combined with Howell's lack of experience gives Brissett a decent chance to make starts at some point this season even if Howell seems to have the Week 1 starting assignment all but locked up.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Gets win in final game as starter

    Brissett completed 23 of 37 passes for 210 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Browns' 23-17 overtime win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 27 yards. Playing what is expected to be his final game in the starting role before Deshaun Watson's Week 13 debut, Brissett went out on a high note. Although he wasn't as productive from a raw numbers standpoint as other games, Brissett handled himself reasonably well while taking four sacks from an aggressive Buccaneers pass rush. The veteran signal-caller then finished off his day in stellar fashion, recording completions of 17 and 45 yards to Amari Cooper on what turned to be the Browns' game-winning drive. If Watson remains free of injury the rest of the season, then Brissett will have wrapped up his time as a starter in 2022 with a 12:6 TD:INT alongside 2,608 passing yards and an additional 238 rushing yards.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    This will likely be Brissett's last start this season since Deshaun Watson is eligible to return from his suspension in Week 13, and hopefully Brissett goes out with a strong performance against Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers have allowed two of their past three opposing quarterbacks to score at least 23 Fantasy points, and seven of their past opposing passers have scored at least 19 points. Brissett just had a season-high 30 Fantasy points against Buffalo in Week 11 and has scored at least 18 points in three games in a row against the Bengals, Dolphins and Bills. He's also run for 69 yards in his past two outings. In deeper leagues, Brissett is a good one-week option and is worth up to 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Stellar numbers in Week 11 loss

    Brissett completed 28 of 41 passes for 324 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Browns' 31-23 loss to the Bills on Sunday. He also rushed seven times for 29 yards and lost a fumble. Brissett was clicking with Amari Cooper throughout the afternoon against a tough Bills secondary, hitting the veteran wideout on a team-high eight occasions for 113 yards and touchdown passes of 25 and seven yards. With the Browns falling progressively behind and unable to get anything going on the ground with Nick Chubb, Brissett finished with his second-most pass attempts and highest passing yardage total of the season, as well as his first multi-touchdown effort since Week 3. Brissett has one more game remaining in the starting role -- a Week 12 home matchup against the Buccaneers -- before Deshaun Watson (suspension) takes over in Week 13.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Browns-Bills game moved to Detroit

    Brissett and the Browns are now scheduled to play Sunday's game against the Bills at Ford Field in Detroit at 1 p.m. ET, after the NFL announced Thursday that the game has been moved from Buffalo due to the major snowstorm that's expected to strike Western New York this weekend. The change in venue can probably be seen as nothing but a positive development for all Browns players and their respective fantasy outlooks. Not only will the Browns now have the benefit of playing one of their road games at a neutral-site venue, but they'll have the luxury of playing in a domed stadium, where scoring tends to be higher. Additionally, the move of the Week 11 game to Detroit removes the potential headache fantasy managers might have faced in determining how the inclement weather might affect the passing and running games. Brissett is coming off a Week 10 outing against the Dolphins in which he carried seven times for 40 yards and completed 22 of 35 pass attempts for 212 yards and a touchdown.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Expected to face adverse weather

    Brissett and the Browns will have to navigate a forecasted snowstorm in Buffalo this Sunday, Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The forecast calls for lake-effect snow from Thursday to Sunday, which could total three-to-four feet. That will present a challenge to throw the ball. Brissett was involved a similar game in 2017 in Buffalo when he was with the Colts. In that game, Brissett finished 11-of-22 for 69 yards while Frank Gore toted the rock 36 times. It behooves fantasy managers to monitor the situation and consider making alternative arrangements in terms of Cleveland's skill players involved in the passing game.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    Brissett has done a nice job the past two weeks against the Jets and Steelers, and he's averaging 19.0 Fantasy points per game over that span. He should have the chance for another quality outing in Week 4 against the Falcons, and Brissett should be considered a low-end starter in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues where available. He's averaging 21.3 rushing yards per game, and he's getting the ball to his playmakers in Amari Cooper and David Njoku. He's worth adding for 1 percent of your remaining FAB in one-quarterback leagues. In Superflex and two-quarterback leagues, Brissett is worth up to 10 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Ineffective in preseason finale

    Brissett completed 13 of 23 passes for 109 yards and one interception in Cleveland's preseason game against Chicago on Saturday. Brissett has obvious limitations and a game like this is a reminder that his passing abilities are far below average among starters, but he still seems locked in as Cleveland's starter for the 11 games Deshaun Watson is suspended. Brissett will need to play better than this when the regular season starts, though.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Slated to start Saturday's game

    Brissett will start Saturday's preseason finale against the Bears, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Coach Kevin Stefanski declined to outline how long Brissett will play Saturday, but once the QB gets his snaps in, his focus will shift toward preparing for a Week 1 start against the Panthers. Meanwhile, Joshua Dobbs and Josh Rosen are competing for the Browns' No. 2 QB role behind Brissett, with Deshaun Watson in line to serve an 11-game suspension to begin the 2022 season. As Stefanski told Cabot, Dobbs is slated to follow Brissett versus Chicago, while Rosen also should subsequently log some snaps in the contest.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Making safe plays

    Brissett was on the field with the starting offense during Thursday's joint practice with the Eagles and was notable for making short throws during drills, Ashley Bastock of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. The Browns' offense takes on a different look without Deshaun Watson, whose suspension increased from six to 11 games Thursday, and there was evidence of how it will change with Brissett under center. He completed most of his passes and didn't turn the ball over but didn't take many chances deep. The passing game may be less daring or willing to force big plays, and there is an expectation that the offense will be a run-heavy unit. The differences between the two quarterbacks became apparent when Watson was on the field; he wasn't afraid to make big throws.

  • Browns' Jacoby Brissett: Works with first team Monday

    Brissett quarterbacked the first-team offense during 11-on-11 drills Monday, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports. Brissett mostly has been working with the second unit during practice sessions, but the Browns need to prepare him for Week 1 of the regular season, knowing they'll likely be without Deshaun Watson for at least six games. Meanwhile, Watson was on the field with the second unit Monday. Brissett, who did not play in the preseason opener against the Jaguars, figures to make his debut this coming Sunday against the Eagles.
