Jake Browning

28-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Cincinnati Bengals
2024 Fantasy Outlook
An undrafted free agent in 2019, Browning got his first taste of NFL action early last year and then became the starter Week 12 after Joe Burrow was lost to season-ending injury. Safe to say, Browning exceeded expectations, keeping the Bengals in the playoff hunt until late in the year and leading the league in completion percentage (70.4). It was almost entirely built on short passes, though. Just 7.8 percent of his attempts were deeper than 20 yards, 28th in the league, and his average target depth was a mere 6.4 yards (31st). The only qualified QB lower than that was … Joe Burrow at 6.3 yards. Browning wasn’t corralled because of his lack of arm strength, but because the Bengals offense, for whatever reason, didn’t scheme deep. Browning, in fact, posted a 54.2 on-target percentage on downfield throws (9th). It’s enough to make him an option in two-QB leagues, should Burrow go down again. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Undrafted back in 2019, the QB spent two years on Minnesota's practice squad and then two seasons on Cincinnati's. Browning finally got his shot in 2023, winning the No. 2 QB job for the Bengals and eventually replacing an injured Joe Burrow (wrist) for the final seven and a half games of the season. Browning played surprisingly well down the stretch, with 15 total TDs (three rushing) and seven turnovers (all INTs) while leading all qualified passers in completion percentage (70.4) and ranking fifth in yards per attempt (8.0). The 28-year-old's status as an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason essentially locked him into staying with the Bengals, and the two-year deal now sets him up to be a restricted free agent after 2025. His solid performance in 2023, combined with 2-3 more years of team control, could make Browning a trade target for QB-needy teams, though there haven't been rumblings of interest this spring.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Headed for big payday
QBCincinnati Bengals
December 25, 2023
Browning could be a free-agent target in the offseason for teams in the market for a new starting quarterback, Armando Salguero of OutKick reports.
ANALYSIS
The Bengals' backup has been outstanding since taking over for an injured Joe Burrow six weeks ago, posting a 73.7 completion percentage and 8.9 yards per attempt in his five starts, both of which would be top-two marks in the league if Browning had played enough to qualify. Burrow isn't going anywhere, so Browning figures to parlay his starting opportunity into a big contract and a new team heading into the 2024 season.
