Browns | Isaiah Crowell needs to protect ball

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 11:57:45 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell could be on the field more if he could protect the ball better, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said part of the team's decision to stick with Ben Tate late in Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders was because of Crowell's fumble issues. Pettine added that he would like Crowell to get more touches this week.

Fantasy Tip: Crowell is a risky option with his recent lack of volume and production, though he is a cheap option on FantasyScore at $3,900 and the fact that Pettine wants to get him the ball more is encouraging.

Browns | Isaiah Crowell sees little action

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 08:50:33 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell had one rush for one yard in Week 8, while RB Terrance West had seven carries for 11 yards. Beat writer Tony Grossi speculated that West must have had better performances in practice than Crowell in the week leading up to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ben Tate was also ineffective with 15 carries for 26 yards and a touchdown that salvaged his day. This situation could become wide open on a weekly basis in the near future. Tate is still the one to target on FantasyScore. However, his performance against a much-maligned Oakland Raiders run defense is worrisome.

Browns | CLE re-evaluating RB rotation

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:36:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West were held to 69 yards on 33 carries in Week 7, and head coach Mike Pettine suggested a change was coming for the trio. "We'll have a discussion this week as to how to best rotate those guys," Pettine said.

Fantasy Tip: We could see the work limited to just Tate and Crowell, maybe at a 60-40 split at best, at least for Crowell. Tate ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) is a mid-rate RB2 against the Oakland Raiders on FantasyScore this week. Crowell ($4,000; 8%) is worth consideration at flex, but there are better options unless he's going to have a larger role. West was benched last week and may not even dress.

Browns | Terrance West inactive

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 09:15:15 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West is a healthy scratch Sunday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Isaiah Crowell ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) and Glenn Winston ($3,000; 6%) are expected to give Ben Tate ($5,500; 11%) spot relief. Tate proved last week that he's a legitimate RB2 option on FantasyScore and is at a solid price this week.

Browns | Isaiah Crowell the No. 2 back?

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 10:23:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell was the second back to play in the team's Week 5 game Sunday, Oct. 5, ahead of RB Terrance West.

Fantasy Tip: The backfield situation in Cleveland will have to be monitored to see how the carries are distributed. The worst-case scenario from a fantasy standpoint would be a committee approach between Tate, Crowell and West that would limit the value of all three.

Browns | Ben Tate expected to start

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 11:46:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) is expected to start in Week 5 if he is able to play because Tate's experience allows the team to expand their playbook. RB Terrance West has been in front of RB Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart, but head coach Mike Pettine said Crowell may deserve more playing time. "It's not an easy problem because if you spread it too thin over three then you run the risk of none of them really getting into the groove of the game," Pettine said. "If you restrict it to just two, now you're looking at potentially having a guy that's fresh on the sideline that's not doing anything. It is an issue and you kind of have to play it by ear."

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how the team will distribute the playing time if Tate, West and Crowell all dress for Week 5. Tate may get the most work since he is starting, but West and Crowell have played well in his absence. Crowell may be the best value among the three at a price of $3,700 on FantasyScore, because he could receive more playing time. West at $5,300 and Tate at $4,600 are risky options since their playing time is uncertain at this time.

Browns | Ben Tate returns to practice

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 10:11:43 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Sept. 30, for the first time since spraining his right knee in the season opener Sept. 7. It means that Tate is likely to return to action in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. He's expected to return to the starting lineup, too, despite the solid play of RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell in his absence. "That's what we brought Tate here for, to be the starter," running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery said last week. "He's the No. 1 running back in this offense. Right now, you can say we miss him. We miss his experience. We miss his leadership with the group. Speaking from that standpoint, we'll be open arms and welcome to have Ben back into the fold." Tate was wearing a brace on his knee while doing individual drills Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Tate will likely start against the Titans, but there'll still probably be a rotation in the backfield to keep him fresh in his first start back, and Crowell could continue to see goal-line looks. At FantasyScore, Tate will cost you only $4,600 (9.2% of cap), but there are probably better options available.

Browns | Isaiah Crowell looking to do more

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 19:36:42 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell is looking for more work, and head coach Mike Pettine suggested the rookie might get his wish. In practice Wednesday, Sept. 25, Crowell worked with the first team for a portion of practice open to the media, with RB Terrance West going second and RB Ben Tate (knee) riding a stationary bike. "If a guy's been productive, you find ways to get him on the field more," Pettine said. "That's a good problem to have. When you have a back, who before the season you weren't factoring in on being a big part of what you're doing, and he's being productive, you find ways to get him out there."

Fantasy Tip: Crowell has been fantastic when given the opportunity, but the backfield picture in Cleveland is a bit murky right now. Tate, when healthy, will be given chances, as well as the rookie West. For now, standard fantasy owners will want to use Crowell only as an RB3 or flex play. He has the most upside, but there are only so many touches to go around when three backs are healthy.

Browns | Ben Tate may not start upon return

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:20:59 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate may not regain his starting job when he returns from his injury because RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell have performed well, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said the team is eager to have Tate back on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has missed the last two games because of a knee injury but may be ready to play after the Week 4 bye. Owners will need to see how the touches will be handed out before being confident in using any of the Browns running backs, but Tate's value likely will go down if he shares work with the other running backs.

Browns | CLE RBs have different styles

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:03:07 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell are similar in size but have different running styles, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine believes West runs like he is looking to make defenders miss, but the team wants him to finish his runs. Pettine indicated Crowell appears to be more willing to run through tackles and shows great acceleration.

Fantasy Tip: West will be the starting running back Week 2 but Crowell will also receive playing time. Crowell probably will receive most of the carries around the goal line because of his willingness to try to run through contact, which should help his value. West and Crowell are good options to use at FantasyScore even though neither will have a big impact in the passing game. West costs $4,800 at FantasyScore, while Crowell costs $4,000.
