Packers' DeShone Kizer: Struggles with turnovers in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kizer completed 4-of-7 passes for 55 yards while temporarily filling in for an injured Aaron Rodgers in Sunday's victory over the Bears. Kizer did not toss a touchdown but did throw an interception and lost a fumble as well.

Kizer held his own immediately after entering the game, marching the Packers down the field into scoring position. However, a careless fumble -- while influenced by pressure from Khalil Mack -- cost the Packers any points, and his interception on the next drive that Mack took to the house gave the Bears a 17-point lead heading into halftime. Kizer has now seen action in 16 NFL games, but mistakes are still clearly an issue. Still, if Rodgers misses any further action, the Packers will have to sink or swim with Kizer.

Packers' DeShone Kizer: On track to open as backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kizer is on track to open the season as the Packers' backup quarterback following the team's trade of Brett Hundley to the Seahawks on Wednesday.

While Kizer has not officially been named the No. 2 quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers, Hundley's departure leaves undrafted rookie Tim Boyle as the only other quarterback on the roster, so it all but guarantees Kizer the job unless the Packers add another quarterback prior to Week 1. Kizer started 15 games for the Browns during his rookie season in 2017, but the Packers are no doubt hoping he only sees the field in inconsequential situations this year.

Packers' DeShone Kizer: Struggles in third preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kizer completed just 11 of his 23 pass attempts for 120 yards and rushed two times for five yards Friday against the Raiders.

Kizer was brought in this offseason to compete with Brett Hundley for the backup role behind Aaron Rodgers, but, if Friday's affair is any indication, Hundley remains ahead of him in the race. Hundley received the start during the contest and outperformed Kizer in what was a rather lackluster offensive showing for the Packers overall. It's unlikely the Packers will carry fewer than three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, so it's a good bet that Kizer will stick around even if he doesn't earn the top backup job.

Packers' DeShone Kizer: Plays well in second exhibition game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kizer completed seven of 12 passes for 149 yards and had two carries for four yards in Thursday's win over the Steelers. He tossed two touchdowns in the game and did not throw an interception.

A good chunk of Kizer's passing yardage came on a catch-and-run from receiver Jake Kumerow, but he nonetheless put up quality numbers in his four series on the field. Kizer and Brett Hundley remain neck-and-neck in the battle for the Packers' backup quarterback spot.

Packers' DeShone Kizer: Excels in first action with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kizer completed 9-of-18 passes for 134 yards and had three carries for 18 yards in Thursday's preseason contest.

Kizer's completion percentage certainly was not great, but he looked plenty comfortable in his new surroundings and made a number of plays, both with his arm and his legs. Kizer, who was acquired from the Browns during the offseason, is competing for the backup spot behind Aaron Rodgers with Brett Hundley, who also played well Thursday. Hundley has the slight edge at the moment given his tenure in Green Bay, but the Packers clearly like Kizer, so even if does lose out to Hundley, he is a good bet for a roster spot barring another trade.
