Brandon Weeden leads the NFL with 10 interceptions through the first six weeks of the season. He has thrown for only seven touchdowns, but believe it or not, you want to add Weeden to your roster.
The past three games, Weeden has put up passing yards of 320, 291 and 231. Though he only went 1-2 in those games, the Browns were very competitive in those losses. Oh yeah, his opponents were the Ravens, Giants and Bengals, all 2011 playoff participants.
You definitely want Weeden on your roster, and here is how you get him.
Convince Weeden's fantasy owner that the rookie has a very weak supporting cast around him. For one reason or another, Weeden does lead the league in interceptions and lost his first five games. He even has the highly touted rookie running back Trent Richardson who will have a good chunk of carries every game.
But in reality, Richardson is a little shaken up from an injury and Weeden has been having success as of late. Fellow rookie Josh Gordon has been a home run threat the past two weeks and appears to be the best downfield threat in Cleveland since Braylon Edwards. Weeden is only getting more and more comfortable and confident and should continue to push 300 yards every game.
The rookie has a lot of talent, but not a lot of help around him. However, he is still managing to get the job done and deserves to be traded for at a low value.
