The Cleveland Browns won't always have WRs Josh Gordon and Greg Little line up on the outside with Davone Bess in the slot. In early workouts, they've been shifting spots to keep defenses guessing; all have run routes from the inside and outside. Gordon made some of his most dynamic plays last year from the slot. David Nelson (knee) will also be incorporated into this rotation once healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon is an alluring fantasy WR3 in Norv Turner's offense under head coach Rob Chudzinski, but preseason hype will probably make the second-year snare a pricey middle-rounds commodity. He might meet expectations, though, thanks to his deep prowess and Turner's history with big-play wideouts. Little, Bess and Nelson might cap each others' ceiling for production, but they all could serve as solid fantasy depth.

Cleveland Browns offensive players have raved about their first impression of OC Norv Turner's scheme. "Defenses will be shocked to say the least with how much we're running downfield,"WR Josh Gordon said. WR Greg Little said Turner "calls more post and go routes than I've ever run before."ESPN Stats and Information cites that the Browns threw the ball 10 yards or fewer downfield on 73.3 percent of their 2012 passes, and 20 yards or more on only 9 percent.
QB Brandon Weeden, not the confirmed starter but the presumed leader, is more comfortable out of the shotgun, not the timing-based, three-step-drop setup run by Pat Shurmur last year.
Fantasy Tip: The Air Coryell elements in Turner's vertical-based game give Gordon and Little some fantasy sleeper potential and should sustain Trent Richardson's RB1 stock. It's a stretch to say Weeden, if he gets the gig, will be anything more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy QB, but he could be useful in the right matchup plays for bye weeks. Keep an eye on the development of talented but unpolished TE Jordan Cameron, as well.

Cleveland Browns WR Greg Little has been one of the team's most impressive players during minicamps. The coaching staff is excited about how Little has embraced their new offense and downfield passing attack.
Fantasy Tip: Little has a lot of potential and physical abilities, but his hands have been suspect in his NFL career. He led the Browns with six drops last year. Consider him a worthwhile WR5 in PPR leagues.

The Cleveland Browns could look to sign a veteran wide receiver in the offseason who can add speed to the outside, and a result be able to relegate WR Greg Little to the slot.

After meeting with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning during the team's bye week, Cleveland Browns WR Greg Little learned a lot about personal sacrifice and the value of commitment to the team's goal of winning. Little has vowed to ditch Twitter, and he hasn't tweeted since Sept. 22. He has 13 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown in the last three weeks.

Cleveland Browns WR Greg Little has worked his way back into the good graces of head coach Pat Shurmur and the team's fan base by working hard."I was trying to do so much more than just being myself on the field; just trying to create much more than the play was designed for," Little said. Shurmur said Little has "refocused", and is having some success. He also said his improved blocking has not gone unnoticed.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted team-highs with three receptions and 46 yards in Week 8 against the San Diego Chargers. WR Greg Little chipped in with two receptions for 28 yards, while WR Joshua Cribbs managed one grab for seven yards.

Ward (hand), SS Ray Ventrone (hand, calf) and LS Christian Yount (shoulder) are listed as probable for Week 7.
