Browns | Robert Griffin cleared for contact

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 08:43:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for contact Tuesday, Nov. 29. He will practice during the bye week with QB Cody Kessler (concussion) and QB Josh McCown, and the team will decide on a starter.

Fantasy Tip: Whomever comes out the starter has minimal fantasy appeal. They have a so-so matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals next week, but their upside isn't high enough to warrant a start.

Browns | Josh McCown throws for 322 yards

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 20:31:45 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown completed 25 of his 43 pass attempts for 322 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his second 300-yard total over the past four games, he remains more of a QB2 in deeper fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers. The Browns are off in Week 13 due to a bye.

Browns | Cody Kessler replaced

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 21:16:11 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler was replaced by QB Josh McCown against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Kessler or McCown was overly effective, and it remains to be seen who Cleveland will put under center in Week 11.

Browns | Cody Kessler to face Dallas

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 07:47:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) has been named the starting quarterback for Week 9's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Hue Jackson said Kessler received the starting nod over QB Josh McCown because he needs to see him play in order to evaluate him.

Fantasy Tip: Kessler was a full participant in practice for three consecutive days after missing Week 8's game versus the New York Jets due to a concussion. He should be viewed as a risky play in all fantasy formats, even though WR Corey Coleman is expected to suit up for the first time since Week 2.

Browns | Cleveland not ready to name QB

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 11:05:59 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said he is not ready to say if QB Cody Kessler or QB Josh McCown will start in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is coming off a decent Week 8 performance where he threw for 341 yards and two touchdowns, while Kessler is recovering from a concussion. Owners in all leagues should avoid the Browns quarterback situation no matter which player starts.

Browns | Josh McCown decent in his return

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 18:05:02 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (collarbone) completed 25 of his 49 pass attempts for 341 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 8 game against the New York Jets in his first action since Week 2. He had been sidelined since then due to a fractured collarbone.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has a pretty decent stat line, but his fantasy appeal is mostly for those in formats requiring two starting signal callers and as a low-priced option in DFS.

Browns | Browns injury report for Friday

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:40:34 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 28. WR Corey Coleman (hand) and CBs Marcus Burley (hamstring), Joe Haden (groin) and Jamar Taylor (groin) were limited participants, while TE Seth DeValve (knee), OL Spencer Drango (knee) and Joe Thomas (knee), C Cameron Erving (illness), QB Josh McCown (left shoulder) and DE Carl Nassib (hand) practiced in full. Kessler and Coleman have been ruled out for Week 8. Burley, Haden and Taylor are listed as questionable, while the other players are not on the injury report.

Browns | Josh McCown named Week 8 starter

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 10:34:43 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) will start Week 8 versus the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the expectation for most of the week and became official Friday when Cody Kessler (concussion) was ruled out. Although some rust should be expected, McCown is a great option for Philip Rivers owners, who are facing a difficult matchup, or Ben Roethlisberger owners, who are hoping to buy time while he recovers from surgery.

Browns | Josh McCown fully practices

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 14:44:51 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 27. Head coach Hue Jackson has already said he expects McCown to start this week.

Fantasy Tip: McCown returns for a favorable matchup with the New York Jets, and his return also bumps up the fantasy value of Gary Barnidge and Duke Johnson, in particular. Because it's his first game back in a while, McCown could be overlooked in daily contests. He's a great contrarian option at a cheap price.

Browns | Josh McCown on track to start

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 11:07:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said all signs point to QB Josh McCown (shoulder) being the team's starting quarterback for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: McCown threw for 260 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in his only other start of the season and had some success last season as well. He would be facing a New York Jets defense that has had problems in 2016. McCown could be a bye week replacement in some leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.
