Analysis: Kizer will start the team's third preseason game, Saturday against Tampa Bay, and coach Hue Jackson said the rookie "is certainly positioning himself well to earn the starting job heading into the regular season." It's the Notre Dame product's job to lose at this point, so grab him for your two-quarterback leagues.

Analysis: "It doesn't mean anything for the regular season," Jackson said. "This is this game. (Osweiler) will walk out first. (His playing time) could decrease. I want to see these young guys play quite a bit. That's why I'm putting (Kizer) out there second."
