Fantasy Football analysis: Browns QB Deshaun Watson

Watson has been ruled out for this game due to a rotator cuff injury that kept him out of Week 4 as well. The team had a bye in Week 5, but it was not enough time for the QB to get healthy.

Start or sit in Week 6?

Sit. He was officially ruled out on Friday and will be on the team’s inactives report.

If you don’t have a good QB replacement on your bench, players like C.J. Stroud of the Houston Texans, Sam Howell of the Washington Commanders, and maybe even Joshua Dobbs of the Arizona Cardinals (only in deep leagues) could help on that front.
