Cleveland Browns news, rumors and injuries

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West was benched Sunday, Oct. 19, after failing to pick up a first down in two short-yardage situations. He had room to run on both carries but danced in the hole on one carry and ran into his lineman on the other.
Fantasy Tip: The team plans to re-evaluate their split at running back, and it's possible West has fallen out of favor enough to become a weekly scratch. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer struggled against the Jacksonville Jaguars but will receive another start this week. He could be a cheap starting option on FantasyScore this upcoming week since he will be facing the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer should keep his starting job unless he continues to struggle. Hoyer has a good matchup this week against the Oakland Raiders and could be a cheap starting option on FantasyScore.

Cleveland Browns CB Buster Skrine will line up at nickel back on passing downs because of the injury to CB K'Waun Williams (concussion). CB Justin Gilbert or CB Robert Nelson would line up on the outside when Skrine moves to the slot.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel said he is feeling more comfortable with the offense and will be ready to play when needed. "I feel a lot more confident and a lot more comfortable," Manziel said. "The whole process of being under center a lot more, everything that's involved in this offense, that just wasn't anything that I was asked to do at (Texas) A&M. I knew it would take some time."

Cleveland Browns DE Billy Winn (quadriceps), DE Phil Taylor (knee) and WR Rodney Smith (hamstring) all did not practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for Week 7. DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), FS Tashaun Gipson (shoulder), OT John Greco (knee), LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and CB Buster Skrine (thumb) all fully practiced and are probable. CB Joe Haden (hip) was limited in practice and is probable. LB Paul Kruger (back) did not practice and is questionable. LB Eric Martin (personal) did not practice. OL Joe Thomas (non-injury) fully practiced.

Fantasy Tip: Cameron should be good to go in Week 7, but he may have trouble living up to his FantasyScore price of $5,900 (11.8% of cap) this week.

Fantasy Tip: Tate should be ready to play in Week 7, and has a favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Do not hesitate to spend $5,900 on him in FantasyScore.
