Player Outlook
Thompson-Robinson will likely be the No. 4 quarterback for the Browns this season if he plays at all, and he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. Cleveland has Deshaun Watson, Jameis Winston and Tyler Huntley ahead of Thompson-Robinson, and he is trying to come back from a hip injury suffered last season. Thompson-Robinson was on the road to recovery at time of publication, but even if he's ready for Week 1, it's unlikely we'll see Thompson-Robinson play much this year. At best, add Thompson-Robinson off the waiver if he ever gets the chance to start for the Browns in 2024.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Remains limited

    Thompson-Robinson (hip) participated in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday, but he is still limited in practice, Daniel Oyefusi of reports. Thompson-Robinson is still not fully cleared from a hip subluxation suffered during the Browns' Week 15 win over the Texans. There was hope he'd be cleared in time for mandatory minicamp, which began Monday, but it does appear the UCLA product is at least making progress in his recovery. DTR is expected to compete with Jameis Winston and Tyler Huntley for the top backup role behind Deshaun Watson (shoulder).

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Will have followup MRI on Monday

    Thompson-Robinson (hip) will undergo an MRI on Monday and is expected to participate in minicamp next week, Mary Kay Cabot of reports. DTR suffered a hip subluxation against the Texans on Christmas Eve and was ruled out for the remainder of the Browns' season. His most recent MRI in March revealed progress in his rehab, and Thompson-Robinson is hoping the latest one this upcoming week will allow him to get the green light to do some on-field work with the team's rookies and fellow younger players. The Browns signed veteran QBs Jameis Winston and Tyler Huntley in the offseason, so DTR is facing stiff competition for backup duties behind Deshaun Watson.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Headed for IR

    The Browns placed Thompson-Robinson (hip) on injured reserve Tuesday. Since clearing the concussion protocol, the fifth-round pick out of UCLA has appeared in each of the team's last three games, taking a handful of snaps behind Joe Flacco in specific packages. Thompson-Robinson apparently injured his hip during his brief cameo in Sunday's 36-22 win over the Texans, and the team decided it could put his roster spot to better use for the rest of the regular season. He's technically eligible to be activated as soon as the AFC Championship Game, should the Browns advance that far, but for now PJ Walker will step in as Flacco's backup. Thompson-Robinson wraps up his regular season with a 53.6 percent completion rate on 112 passes for 3.9 yards per attempt, one touchdown and four interceptions to go with 14 carries for 65 yards over his eight outings.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Completes lone pass

    Thompson-Robinson completed his only passing attempt for five yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over Chicago. Thompson-Robinson entered the game for one play and completed a pass to Jerome Ford in the red zone before starter Joe Flacco re-entered the game. The Browns have used Thompson-Robinson in certain packages since anointing Flacco the No. 1 QB. In three snaps over the last two games, the rookie quarterback has handed the ball off once, run for a first down and thrown one pass.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Appears slated for backup role

    Thompson-Robinson is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars but is expected to serve as a backup to Joe Flacco, who is in line for a second straight start, sources confirmed to While Thompson-Robinson was in concussion protocol throughout Week 13, Flacco was elevated from the practice squad and started in the Browns' 36-19 loss to the Rams last Sunday, throwing for 254 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 44 attempts. Flacco took most of the first-team reps in practice this week, but Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski declined to name a Week 14 starting quarterback after Thompson-Robinson cleared the protocol Friday while practicing fully that same day. Though Thompson-Robinson will be available Sunday and could even be deployed in select packages that take advantage of his mobility, Flacco is still expected to see the majority -- if not all -- of the snaps behind center for the second week in a row.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Continues to practice

    Thompson-Robinson (concussion) was present for practice Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Meanwhile, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer notes that earlier Thursday offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said he believes Thompson-Robinson is still in the NFL's concussion protocol and has one more box to check in order to gain clearance ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Per Petrak, Van Pelt indicated that the Browns have yet to make a decision on the team's Week 14 starter at QB, but Cabot believes that Joe Flacco is trending toward toward facing Jacksonville this weekend.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Remains in concussion protocol

    Coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday that Thompson-Robinson remains in the concussion protocol, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Thompson-Robinson missed Week 13 while in the concussion protocol, and he will need to gain full clearance before returning to the lineup. As such, his status is still in question for Cleveland's matchup against Jacksonville in Week 14. If Thompson-Robinson can't return to full health before the Browns take on the Jaguars, Joe Flacco will likely draw another start, with PJ Walker also being an option.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Ruled out this week

    Thompson-Robinson (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Rams, Jake Trotter of reports. With Thompson-Robinson unavailable this week due to a concussion, veteran signal-caller Joe Flacco is poised to be elevated from the Browns' practice ahead of Sunday's contest in order to draw the start Week 13. Thompson-Robinson now will target a potential return to action Sunday, Dec. 10 against the Jaguars.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Remains spectator for practice

    Thompson-Robinson (concussion) was listed as a non-participant in Thursday's practice. Earlier Thursday, offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt told Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer that Thompson-Robinson underwent additional concussion testing. The rookie quarterback ultimately wasn't able to advance to limited practice participation, which would have represented a sign of progress as he navigates the five-step protocol. Thompson-Robinson could still have a chance at playing Sunday against the Rams if he's able to get back on the practice field in some capacity Friday, but at this stage, veteran Joe Flacco looks to be trending toward the Week 13 start. Flacco remains on the practice squad for now, but head coach Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that Flacco is now viewed as the top understudy to Thompson-Robinson, with PJ Walker dropping to third on the depth chart.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Sustains concussion

    Thompson-Robinson was diagnosed with a concussion after exiting Sunday's game in Denver, Brad Stainbrook of reports. Thompson-Robinson left the contest late in the third quarter after enduring a roughing the passer penalty from Broncos linebacker Baron Browning. With a concussion confirmed, Thompson-Robinson will end Week 12 with 134 yards and a touchdown on 14-for-29 passing and five carries for 21 yards. He'll yield the Browns offense to PJ Walker for the rest of Sunday's outing.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    Thompson-Robinson is expected to start again in Week 12 at Denver, and we'll see if he fares better against the Broncos than he did against the Steelers in Week 11. He was 24-of-43 passing against Pittsburgh for 165 yards, no touchdowns and one interception, and he also added 20 rushing yards on three attempts. So far, Thompson-Robinson has faced the Ravens and Steelers in two starts, and the Denver matchup isn't as favorable as it was earlier in the season. Still, he could be useful as a low-end starter in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues, as long as he remains the starter in place of Deshaun Watson (shoulder) since Joe Flacco was signed to the practice squad Monday. Thompson-Robinson is worth adding in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues for 5-10 percent of your FAB. Also, if you want to speculate on Flacco (1 percent rostered) taking the job at some point, you can add him in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues for 1 percent of your FAB.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Could start Sunday

    The Browns could turn to Thompson-Robinson to serve as their starting quarterback Sunday against the Steelers, with Deshaun Watson slated to miss the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Head coach Kevin Stefanski will address the media later Wednesday and could clarify whether Thompson-Robinson or PJ Walker -- who served as Watson's top backup in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Ravens -- will take over as the team's starting quarterback. Thompson-Robinson previously started the Browns' Week 4 game against the Ravens when Watson was sidelined, but he completed just 19 of 36 pass attempts for 121 yards and three interceptions in a 28-3 blowout loss. The rookie fifth-round pick had since fallen behind Walker on the depth chart.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: In line to start Sunday

    Thompson-Robinson is slated to start at quarterback in Sunday's game against the Ravens in place of the injured Deshaun Watson (shoulder) Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Per Cabot, the Browns had optimism that Watson would be able to start Sunday despite carrying a questionable tag into the weekend, but he'll end up sitting out the Week 4 contest after he was still experiencing discomfort while throwing in pregame warmups. Watson's absence paves the way for Thompson-Robinson, a rookie fifth-round pick out of UCLA, to make his first NFL start. Thompson-Robinson put his dual-threat skill set on display during the preseason, completing 37 of 58 attempts for 440 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions while carrying 14 times for 69 yards over four contests. Though Watson is likely to be back in action following the Browns' Week 5 bye, Thompson-Robinson could make for an appealing cost-relief option in Week 4 DFS contests or as a lineup option in season-long leagues with a QB flex spot.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Mops up win

    Thompson-Robinson played five snaps in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Titans. Thompson-Robinson saw regular-season action for the first time since being selected in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He mopped up on the final drive, handing off five times to Pierre Strong. It would take an injury to Deshaun Watson to thrust Thompson-Robinson into a role with significant fantasy value.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: In line to back up Watson

    With Joshua Dobbs headed to the Cardinals in a trade Thursday, Thompson-Robinson is in line to serve as Deshaun Watson's top backup ahead of Week 1, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Earlier Thursday, coach Kevin Stefanski announced that Dobbs would be the team's No. 2 QB, but following the subsequent deal sending the signal-caller to Arizona, Thompson-Robinson now is in line to handle the role. Additionally, the Browns retained Kellen Mond as a depth option after initially planning to waive him.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Solid in preseason start

    Thompson-Robinson completed 13 of 25 passes for 164 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and rushed four times for 18 yards in the Browns' 18-18 preseason tie with the Eagles on Thursday night. He also committed a fumble that he recovered. The UCLA product was afforded the start and made good use of the opportunity, playing a turnover-free first half during which he only took one sack. Thompson-Robinson immediately led a 12-play, 75-yard drive on the Browns' first possession, only to see it culminate in a John Kelly fumble at the Eagles' three-yard line. Cleveland's next three drives ended in punts, but Thompson-Robinson was able to bounce back and lead the Browns to a pair of field goals before the end of the first half. Thompson-Robinson outperformed his competition for a roster spot, Kellen Mond, after also turning in solid performances during his first two preseason games, so the No. 3 job may be the rookie's to lose going into the team's exhibition finale against the Chiefs on the road on Saturday, Aug. 26.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Another strong showing

    Thompson-Robinson completed nine of 10 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown pass in Friday's preseason game against the Commanders. He added 11 yards on three carries. Thompson-Robinson entered to start the third quarter and led the Browns on two lengthy drives. One possession ended in a Cade York missed field goal and the other when the quarterback delivered a well-thrown ball to David Bell for a seven-yard touchdown. The rookie has completed 17 of 21 throws for 184 yards and two touchdowns without an interception in two preseason games. Thompson-Robinson was the third quarterback in Friday's game following Deshaun Watson and Joshua Dobbs, but the depth chart could change before the regular season begins.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Will play Thursday

    Thompson-Robinson will play in the second half against the Jets on Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Thomas-Robinson, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2023 Draft, should get a long look in the Hall of Fame Game. Although Deshaun Watson is the clear No. 1 quarterback on the team's positional depth chart, there is some uncertainty in the pecking order behind him between Kellen Mond, Joshua Dobbs and Thomas-Robinson. Mond is slated to draw the start Thursday.

  • Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson: Intriguing landing spot in Cleveland

    The Browns selected Thompson-Robinson in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 140th overall. A five-year starter at UCLA, Thompson-Robinson had plenty of experience running an NFL-style offense with Chip Kelly at the helm. The 23-year-old set career highs in passing touchdowns (27), rushing touchdowns (12) and rushing yards (646) in his final season at UCLA, but the growth as a playmaker was offset by a rise in turnovers. Thompson-Robinson makes for an intriguing backup behind Deshaun Watson, though he'll have to battle Joshua Dobbs and Kellen Mond for slotting on the depth chart.
