Cleveland Browns news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Pryor doesn't seem to be too worried about the hamstring. He had it wrapped and the team trainer said it was strong. It may take some time for Pryor to get accustomed to a new position and a new offense.

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (hamstring) will have some catching up to do when he returns from his hamstring injury, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said Johnson is still preparing mentally, but he's losing valuable repetitions on the practice field.
Fantasy Tip: Isaiah Crowell was already slated as the starter, but Johnson seemed to have a leg up on RB Terrance West. He still could, however, with West suffering from a calf injury, conditioning and perceived immaturity. While Johnson may miss a couple weeks of practice, he should be good to go for the start of the season and has RB4 upside.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has a good opportunity in his new role. The Browns are relatively lacking at wide receiver, so Pryor could be an extra, under-the-radar weapon. However, it's tough to gauge how much Pryor will be used and how often he'll be targeted since this is his first stint at the position. Draft him with caution.

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (hamstring) could miss a couple weeks after recently injuring his hamstring. The Browns purportedly have big plans for Johnson, so they want to be careful not to aggravate the injury.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson could very well be backing up Isaiah Crowell once the season starts. Terrance West seems to have found himself in the Browns' doghouse. Johnson has shown promise this offseason, and you could do worse than draft him as a RB4.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has completed 69% of his passes in practice thus far, while he completed 56% of passes at this time last year. "He is clearly engaged this year," owner Jimmy Haslam said. "He physically looks better. He looks like a pro athlete should."
Fantasy Tip: Manziel is unlikely to overtake Josh McCown for the starting job to start the season, but he's worth keeping an eye on for watch lists.

Fantasy Tip: The good news for West is that Isaiah Crowell has fumbling issues and Duke Johnson has durability concerns. Therefore, West could find himself back in the mix at any point. West is worth an RB5 gamble.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns need all the weapons they can find in the passing game, and Pryor's size and athleticism could make up for his lack of experience as he transitions to playing receiver. If he ends up starting, he is worth taking a late-round flier on for his potential red-zone impact alone.

Fantasy Tip: West is most likely to wind up as Cleveland's third running back out of Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson and West. He should be viewed more as a RB4 with Crowell and Johnson stunting his value.

Fantasy Tip: The key here is that the injury isn't serious. Johnson should still be an important part of the Browns' backfield. Cleveland might want to take it easier with him for the time being, but Johnson arguably has the most potential of any running back in Cleveland. Isaiah Crowell is still expected to start right away, but Johnson could end up giving him a run for his money.
