Player Outlook
Fantasy managers do not want to see Keenum play this year. If he does, that means something is wrong with the quarterback he's backing up, Josh Allen. Keenum has proven to be a serviceable backup quarterback who could help Fantasy managers in a pinch, but he really only has Draft Day appeal in deep two-QB formats as a late-round handcuff for Allen.

  • Bills' Case Keenum: Rough debut for Buffalo

    Keenum completed 11 of 18 passes for 86 yards with no TD passes and two interceptions in Buffalo's preseason win over the Colts on Saturday. While those numbers are rough on their own, Keenum also lost a fumble and was sacked six times, and his 33.3 rating paled in comparison to teammate Matt Barkley's 86.1 figure. Keenum was brought in to be the main backup to Josh Allen, and it's doubtful the Bills would punt on that plan after just one lousy preseason performance, but Keenum will have to at least show something better over the last two preseason games.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Pair of TD tosses in finale

    Keenum completed 17 of 24 passes for 176 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Browns' 21-16 win over the Bengals on Sunday. He also rushed five times for 15 yards and lost a fumble. Keenum once again did a serviceable job in Baker Mayfield's (shoulder) stead, connecting with Jarvis Landry and Demetric Felton on touchdown passes of 26 and 10 yards, respectively. The veteran is under contract through next season and therefore figures to remain as a trusted veteran No. 2 option behind Mayfield or a possible offseason addition.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Frontrunner for Week 18 start

    Keenum is expected to start Sunday's game against the Bengals after head coach Kevin Stefanski said Tuesday that Baker Mayfield (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery "as soon as possible" and won't be available for the season finale, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Though Stefanski didn't officially name a Week 18 starter, Keenum will presumptively receive the nod, considering he's served as the No. 2 signal-caller behind Mayfield all season when both have been available. Kyle Lauletta, meanwhile, is another option at the position, though he's bounced around multiple organizations since entering the league in 2018 and has only had a few weeks to get up to speed with the Cleveland playbook since being signed off Jacksonville's practice squad Dec. 17. Keenum previously filled in as a starter in place of Mayfield on a Thursday night game against the Broncos back in Week 7. The Browns leaned heavily on a D'Ernest Johnson-led ground attack in that contest, but Keenum was competent when his number was called, as he completed 21 of 33 attempts for 199 yards and a touchdown in Cleveland's 17-14 win.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Suits up Saturday

    Keenum (illness) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Packers, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. As is Baker Mayfield, who is slated to start the contest. In that context, Keenum, who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, is in line to serve as Cleveland's No. 2 QB on Saturday.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Officially questionable for Week 16

    Keenum (illness), who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, will be listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Packers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The designation is only procedural with Keenum being one week removed from testing positive for the virus, but because he's cleared the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol, he's on track to play Saturday. With Baker Mayfield (illness) also coming off the same list Friday, he's expected to handle his usual starting role, while Keenum backs him up.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Moved to COVID-19 list

    The Browns placed Keenum (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. News of Keenum testing positive for the virus first arrived Thursday, but the Browns didn't officially deactivate him until a day later. Because of the Browns' mounting COVID-19 concerns, the NFL officially moved the team's Week 15 game against the Raiders from its originally scheduled date (Saturday). The Browns and Raiders are now scheduled to play Monday at 5 p.m. ET, and the two-day delay coupled with the NFL's newly updated COVID-19 return-to-play protocols could give both Keenum and Baker Mayfield -- who tested positive Wednesday -- a chance to play Week 15. If neither Keenum nor Mayfield is available, the Browns will turn to Nick Mullens to serve as their starting quarterback.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Headed to COVID list

    Keenum has tested positive for COVID-19, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, Keenum will join fellow QB Baker Mayfield (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which currently leaves Nick Mullens as the Browns' top available signal caller as Saturday's game against the Raiders approaches.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Engineers two long drives

    Keenum completed nine of 12 passes for 74 yards and one touchdown with one interception and two sacks in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Giants in preseason Week 2. Keenum once again started, as Baker Mayfield remained on the sideline for the second consecutive preseason tilt, and was in the game for three possessions. Keenum engineered an 81-yard scoring drive the first time Cleveland had the ball, delivering a tight-window strike to KhaDarel Hodge for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the seven. Keenum then had the Browns in the red zone on the second drive but threw a nasty end-zone interception. Kyle Lauletta finished out the game from the end of the second quarter.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Enters game in relief

    Keenum completed five of 10 pass attempts for 46 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Week 6 against the Steelers. Keenum entered the game late in the third quarter after Baker Mayfield was pulled due to the aggravation of his rib injury. The game was already well out of reach, so Keenum wasn't asked to do much in the closing quarter. However, Keenum could be counted on to start in Week 7 against the Bengals if Mayfield is too injured to suit up. Keenum last saw major playing time as the quarterback for Washington in 2019, when he managed a 65 percent completion rate and an 11:5 TD:INT ratio.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Planning to leave Washington

    Keenum doesn't expect to re-sign with Washington, Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports Washington reports. New head coach Ron Rivera did say Dwayne Haskins (ankle) will have to earn the starting job, but that doesn't necessarily mean Rivera views someone like Keenum or Colt McCoy as a viable alternative. For what it's worth, Keenum went out of his way to compliment Haskins, noting that the 22-year-old showed enough improvement late in the season to keep the job heading into 2020. As for his own career prospects, Keenum hopes to find another opportunity to compete for a starting role. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 18 at the beginning of the new league year, one month after his 32nd birthday.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Modest numbers to close out season

    Keenum completed 18 of 37 passes for 206 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 47-16 loss to the Cowboys. Getting his first start since Week 8 due to Dwayne Haskins' ankle injury, Keenum wasn't able to generate much offense against a desperate Dallas defense. The veteran QB finishes the year having completed a strong 64.8 percent of his passes (160-for-247), but his 11:5 TD:INT and 6.9 YPA over 10 games were less impressive. Those numbers should be good enough to land him a backup job as a free agent in the offseason, but Keenum is unlikely to return to Washington -- in addition to Haskins, the QB room could contain a returning Alex Smith (leg), and there's always the possibility a new head coach decides to bring in his own choice as a franchise QB with the second overall pick in next year's draft.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Out of protocol

    Keenum (concussion) isn't listed on the Redskins' injury report Wednesday. Out of the NFL's protocol for head injuries, Keenum is set to be active for the first time since Week 8. On Sunday against the Jets and beyond, though, he'll serve as the backup to rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins, an arrangement which likely will hold for the rest of the campaign.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Backup role confirmed

    Keenum (concussion) will be the No. 2 quarterback behind Dwayne Haskins for the rest of the season, John Keim of reports. On Monday, interim coach Bill Callahan named Haskins the starter moving forward, relegating Keenum and Colt McCoy to reserve roles. Keenum remains in the concussion protocol, so he wasn't guaranteed to regain the top spot on the depth chart following the Redskins' bye week anyway. Wednesday's practice report will give an indication of Keenum's chances to be the backup Sunday against the Jets.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: May not reclaim starting gig

    Keenum (concussion) isn't expected to receive the start Week 11 against the Jets, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Keenum will spend Week 10 working to progress through the five-step concussion protocol while Washington is on bye. Though the Redskins haven't yet announced a starter for Week 11, Garafolo relays that rookie Dwayne Haskins is the current favorite to face the Jets. Keenum could influence that decision if he manages to gain clearance from the protocol in quick fashion, but things currently appear to be trending towards the veteran receding into a backup role while the non-contending Redskins take a longer look at their first-round pick.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Replaced by Haskins, for now

    Keenum (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Buffalo, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Keenum practiced on a limited basis throughout the week, but Dwayne Haskins got most of the reps with the first-team offense. With Keenum not being able to clear the concussion protocol, Haskins will step in for his first NFL start, with Colt McCoy serving as the backup. It isn't clear if Keenum will return to the starting job once he's cleared of the concussion.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Still in concussion protocol

    Keenum remains in the NFL's concussion protocol as of Wednesday, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports. Keenum doesn't yet appear to have made any tangible progress in his recovery from the head injury he suffered during the Thursday Night Football loss to the Vikings in Week 8. Per Ben Standig of The Athletic, rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins handled first-team reps during Wednesday's practice in Keenum's absence. Haskins thus looks like the top candidate to start in the event Keenum is sidelined Sunday against the Bills.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Will retain starting job, if cleared

    Interim coach Bill Callahan said Monday that Keenum remains in the NFL's concussion protocol but noted that the quarterback would start Week 9 in Buffalo if cleared to play, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports. The Redskins currently are viewing Keenum as day-to-day while he works through the protocol. At this point, he hasn't seemed to have made much tangible progress in his recovery since suffering the head injury last Thursday in the loss to the Vikings, as he wasn't cleared for non-contact work during Monday's practice. Dwayne Haskins handled the first-team reps and presumably will be in line for the Week 9 start in the event Keenum is ruled out.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Ruled out for rest of Thursday

    Keenum (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Vikings. Keenum's concussion paves the way for Dwayne Haskins to finish this game. If Haskins performs well, it's possible he takes over the starting quarterback job moving forward regardless of Keenum's status, though interim coach Bill Callahan said after the game that Keenum would remain the starter if healthy in Week 9.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: In concussion protocol

    Keenum is in concussion protocol to start the second half of Thursday's game against Minnesota, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Rookie Dwayne Haskins is under the center to start the second half. Keenum hit his head on the turf late in the first half, and he couldn't gain clearance to return during halftime. While Keenum's return should be considered questionable at this point, it's more likely than not that Haskins will finish out this contest.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Hardly used in shutout loss

    Keenum completed nine of 12 passes for 77 yards without a touchdown or interception in Sunday's 9-0 loss to the 49ers. With the game being played in a steady rainfall and on a muddy field, interim Washington coach Bill Callahan elected to stick to his running game -- Keenum's longest completion of the day went for only 19 yards. Despite his apparent lack of trust in the veteran QB under tough conditions, Callahan apparently isn't thinking about handing the reins to rookie Dwayne Haskins just yet, per John Keim of "We still have a lot of faith in Case and his ability," Callahan said.
