Description: The Rams are going with Kellen Clemens at quarterback again in Week 9. SOURCE: ESPN.com
Insight: He'll start against the Titans, who rank seventh in passing yards allowed (219.9 per game). Clemens had a tough game last week (17-for-35, 177 yards, 2 INT) but that was against the Seahawks, who are always difficult to score on. The 30-year-old has a 60.3 career quarterback rating in 32 appearances.

Description: The St. Louis Rams will start quarterback Kellen Clemens in Week 8 against Seattle, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Pretty easy guess considering he's the only QB on the current roster.
Insight: This is the worst team he could face as the Seahawks probably own the best secondary in the league. Avoiding Clemens and his receivers is a must.
12/8/2011 2:16:00 AM
Description: The St. Louis Rams have claimed quarterback Kellen Clemens off waivers from the Houston Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Insight: A 2006 second-round pick (49th overall) out of Oregon by the New York Jets, Clemens started nine of 25 games, completing 51.8% of 284 pass attempts for 1,686 yards with five touchdowns and 11 interceptions over five seasons with the Jets before signing with the Washington Redskins after the lockout.
11/23/2011 6:06:00 PM
Description: The Houston Texans have signed Kellen Clemens to back up Matt Leinart and TJ Yates.
Insight: Clemens is nothing more than a stop-gap measure and is not worth picking up in any format.
1/27/2011 10:22:00 AM
Description: The Jets are not expected to re-sign free agent QB Kellen Clemens this offseason.
SOURCE: ESPN NEW YORK
Insight: After being close to getting cut last year, Clemens is fully expected to be gone after he couldn't even beat out 40-year-old Mark Brunell for the backup job. Too bad Eric Mangini wasn't still with the Browns. He would have signed Clemens in a heartbeat.
1/2/2011 4:33:00 PM
Description: After Jets QB Mark Sanchez was replaced by Mark Brunell in the 1st quarter (Week 17), Kellen Clemens has now replaced Brunell in the 3rd quarter.
Insight: No fantasy-related issues here. This is just the Jets trying to stay healthy for the post-season.

Description: Kellen Clemens - QB - Jets
ESPN New York suggests that Kellen Clemens could be a trade candidate for the Arizona Cardinals.
Insight: Clemens could certainly use a change of address and Arizona?s not the worst landing spot for him. He may even may able to compete for the starting gig there. (RapidDraft.com)
6/10/2010 7:58:00 PM
Description: Kellen Clemens' "days are numbered" with the Jets, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini
Insight: Kevin O'Connell is a better option to lead the team and they?ll get a veteran in to mentor Mark Sanchez. Clemens will have a hard time catching on somewhere else, but look for him to surface in New England as part of the ridiculous war between these two teams. (Sportsbuff.com)
4/21/2010 7:36:00 PM
Description: The Jets are reportedly trying to unload QB Kellen Clemens for a late-round pick leading up to the draft.
Insight: It would have to be a pretty late pick for this to make sense. The team never believed in Clemens seriously enough to give him a shot at the starting job and, to be fair, in his limited appearances, he has shown why. (SportsBuff.com)
4/13/2010 9:07:00 PM
Description: Jets re-signed restricted free agent QB Kellen Clemens to a one-year, $1.176 million contract
Insight: He is clearly not in the team?s long-term plans, so he could get bumped completely off the roster if they decide to bring in a free agent. You can?t rule him out catching on somewhere else, though. (SportsBuff.com)
4/9/2010 10:10:00 AM
Description: Jets restricted free agent Kellen Clemens has yet to sign his tender offer because he's holding out for a starting opportunity
Insight: Clemens was never given a realistic chance to succeed by the Jets and perhaps should be seeking out greener pastures. However, he is fooling himself if he believes someone is going to give him a starting job based on what he has shown thus far. (SportsBuff.com)
12/15/2009 1:06:00 AM
Description: Clemens completed 12-of-23 passes for 111 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Insight: Clemens was not asked to do much in the win as the Jets' ran the ball early and often. He is not a recommended fantasy option against the Falcons next week if he gets another start. (SportsBuff.com)
12/4/2009 7:51:00 AM
Description: Clemens completed 1-of-2 passes for 14 yards on Thursday night against Buffalo.
Insight: Clemens came in for an injured Mark Sanchez and only threw those two times as he mostly handed off the ball with the Jets ahead. He would start next week if Sanchez is not able to go. (SportsBuff.com)
8/5/2009 7:07:00 PM
Description: Jets' head coach Rex Ryan has said he will name the team's starting QB by the third preseason game. (Rotowire.com, via New York Newsday)
Insight: Clemens is competing with high profile rookie Mark Sanchez for the job, and with the money invested in Sanchez Clemens may not see much of the field this season.
8/2/2009 10:25:00 AM
Description: Dave Hutchinson of the Star-Ledger reports that Clemens hurt himself in the race for the starting job with back-to-back interceptions in a Saturday morning practice.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan seems to favor rookie Mark Sanchez in this race. If that's the case, Clemens will really have to step up to win the job. Neither player is a strong fantasy option for this season. (SportsBuff.com)
7/29/2009 12:53:00 AM
Description: Clemens reportedly has just as good a shot as Mark Sanchez of emerging from their camp competition as the Jets' opening-day starter.
Insight: After investing so much in the trade up and contract for Sanchez, the team will certainly give him a shot when he appears ready to start. Whereas an established veteran starter holding off a rookie makes sense, Clemens has just eight pro starts (in 2007) to his credit. That could hurt his chances of winning this race. (SportsBuff.com)
7/18/2009 6:15:00 PM
Description: If Clemens starts for the Jets this season, it won't be long. He'll be keeping the seat warm for Mark Sanchez.
Insight: Clemens started ten games in 2007 and threw for five TD's and ten interceptions. He carried the clipboard for soon-to-be-retired-then-unretired Brett Farve last year. He looks like a career backup. (SportsBuff.com)
4/19/2009 9:14:00 AM
Description: Clemens has reportedly taken the early lead on Brett Ratliff in the fight to be the Jets' starter.
Insight: The race could change quite a bit if the team adds a quarterback early in the upcoming draft. It still seems most likely, though, that Clemens will open the season as the Jets' starter. Whether he'll finish it that way -- which he failed to do the last time around -- is another question. He's a late-round fantasy option at best. (SportsBuff.com)
