Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt said he believes the quarterback situation will be straightened out. "They said they are going to get the problem fixed, and I believe that they will," Britt said. "Regardless of who they have under center, it is my job to make him look good."
Fantasy Tip: With Terrelle Pryor out of the picture, Britt should be Cleveland's most dependable receiver in 2017. Consider him a WR3 candidate.

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has received trade interest from at least three teams, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler. The Browns placed a second-round tender on their restricted free agent.
Fantasy Tip: Crowell was one of the very few bright spots for the Browns last season, totaling nearly 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns. If he stays with the Browns, Crowell has low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 potential despite splitting time with Duke Johnson.

The Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns will become the 10th and 11th teams since 2002 to start five different Week 1 starters in as many years following the departures of Brock Osweiler and Robert Griffin III, respectively.

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler "reacted negatively" to head coach Bill O'Brien's decision to turn to him in Week 17 after starter Tom Savage was injured in the second quarter of a loss to the Tennessee Titans. An argument reportedly ensued and the two men eventually engaged in a "physical confrontation that got ugly", according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: If all the details of this report are true, it would help explain why the Texans showed no interest in giving Osweiler another chance to prove himself in 2017 after a disastrous first season. Osweiler will likely be released soon if the Browns can't find a trade partner, while Houston will almost certainly spend a high draft pick on fixing their quarterback situation, even if it adds Tony Romo at some point.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns OG Kevin Zeitler will receive $23 million in fully guaranteed money, with $28 million coming due in the first two years. Part of his 2019 base salary becomes guaranteed if Zeitler is on the Browns' roster in March of 2018.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt's four-year, $32.5 million contract includes $10.5 million in guaranteed money at signing. He will make $17 million over the first two years of his deal.
Fantasy Tip: Britt had 1,002 receiving yards and five touchdowns last season with the Los Angeles Rams and will serve as Cleveland's No. 1 receiver in 2017. He should be viewed as a high-end WR3 in most fantasy leagues, with added value in PPR formats.

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is being shopped to other teams in a trade, and the Browns are looking for a third-round pick in return, according to sources. The Browns are open to adding a fifth-round pick in the trade and are willing to pick up as much as half of the $16 million guaranteed in Osweiler's contract. The team likely will release Osweiler if they are not able to trade him.
Fantasy Tip: The Browns added Osweiler because of the second-round pick in the trade and do not intend to keep him on their roster. It is not known if Osweiler will be able to find a starting job if he becomes a free agent. Owners in all fantasy leagues should avoid him even if he is a starter.
