Browns | Davone Bess dealing with family issue

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 16:50:21 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Davone Bess (personal) has missed practice time this week while dealing with a serious family issue. He's listed as questionable in Week 16 versus the New York Jets, as a result, and he's still in Cleveland. The issue has been ongoing and has taken a toll on Bess this season. WR Joshua Cooper will replace Bess in the starting lineup if he can't play. Bess leads the league with 14 dropped passes and has 28 or fewer yards in 11 of 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper and Greg Little can be ignored during championship weekend. The only receiver worthy of starting is Josh Gordon in Cleveland.

Browns | Greg Little worked out with QB in Oklahoma

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 20:57:13 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Greg Little traveled to Oklahoma earlier this month to spend three days working out and running routes with QB Brandon Weeden. "I worked with a big group of guys," Weeden said Monday, July 22. "Obviously, (WR Joshua Cooper) was out there. But it was good. It was good Greg came down. We got three really hard days of work. I threw until I couldn't throw anymore and he ran until he couldn't run anymore, so we got a lot of work in."

Fantasy Tip: It's good to see Little, who has been criticized by fans for his lack of maturity, showing a commitment to the team. Little has plenty of potential, but he has dropped way too many passes in his first two NFL seasons. He is worth a look as a WR4 or flex player for fantasy rosters, but don't rely upon him too heavily from the outset.
