DeShone Kizer has the type of outing that causes the Cleveland faithful to have headaches.
Kizer completed 15-of-31 passes for 182 yards and 3 interceptions in week 2, and he added a lost fumble. It was a painful outing to watch and the talk of ‘pain’ will probably continue for the foreseeable future as DeShone missed nearly 2 quarters worth of play due to a migraine. His headache symptoms meant Kizer had to go through the concussion protocol before returning to the field but he was probably better off sitting the rest of this one out. For what it’s worth, head coach Hue Jackson stated that he knew of DeShone’s migraine history ahead of the draft. This is something that apparently was kept quiet enough that it has never leaked to the media or scouting sources throughout Kizer’s playing career so it does leave us a bit skeptical. Regardless of the new medical drama that will follow the rookie, the real concern will be his play moving forward and whether or not he can quickly advance past such a poor outing. He gets a brief reprieve this week as he faces a sketchy Colts defense.
DeShone Kizer should not be holding a roster spot in redraft leagues and is a practice squad or deep bench player in dynasty formats.
