Browns | Cleveland will name starting QB soon

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 10:29:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said the team will name their starting quarterback before their first preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Robert Griffin III probably is the leading candidate, but Josh McCown and Cody Kessler are still options for the job. The winner of the quarterback job will be helped with the return of Josh Gordon but should not be seen as more than a low-end No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Browns | RG3 not being handed starting job

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:46:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III won't be handed the starting job, although all signs point to him winning the gig. "No, it's still a ways away in my mind, but I feel good about where we are and I feel good about the process that we've been in for those guys," head coach Hue Jackson said. Griffin is trying to beat out veteran QB Josh McCown, as well as journeyman QB Austin Davis and rookie QB Cody Kessler.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is 5-15 over his past 20 starts, and he has had difficulty staying healthy over his career. Even if he can win the starting job he is nothing more than a Top 25 fantasy option at his position in most formats.

Browns | Josh McCown was steady in spring

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:45:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown looked more ready in spring practices than QB Robert Griffin III, and he knows the offensive line well while having a rapport and timing down with some of the receivers. McCown posted a 93.3 quarterback rating in 2015, 14th in the NFL. However, the team isn't expected to build around a quarterback who is 37. He might be kept around as an insurance policy in case QB Cody Kessler isn't ready.

Fantasy Tip: McCown's outlook is up in the air, as RG3 is expected to start, although nothing is written in stone. Unless he is able to win the starting job, avoid him in all fantasy leagues. Even then he would only be worth a look as a No. 2 or 3 fantasy option in most leagues.

Browns | Austin Davis has chance to stick

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:44:41 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis has a chance to stick around with the team if the organization elects to deal or release QB Josh McCown during training camp and the preseason. Davis was signed to a two-year contract extension through 2017, but only $600,000 is guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Davis isn't likely to be anything more than the team's third-string quarterback if he sticks around.

Browns | More hot water for Armonty Bryant

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:58:25 -0700

Cleveland Browns DL Armonty Bryant faces further possible league suspensions following a misdemeanor drug conviction Wednesday, July 27. He is already suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Browns | Gary Barnidge may be limited

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:09:02 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (hernia) could be limited for the start of training camp after undergoing hernia surgery in June. He did pass his physical, however.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Barnidge does miss some time during training camp, he should be good to go for the regular season. Barnidge is coming off a breakout season in which he managed more than 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns. Continue to view him as a TE1.

Browns | Josh Gordon to start camp on NFI list

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:56:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (quadriceps) will begin training camp on the Non-Football Injury list. He is working out on his own and is expected to miss a couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has plenty of time to recover and get back into the swings of things, especially considering his four-game suspension. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks with the quad injury, the safe bet will be to look at him in the WR3 range.

Browns | Josh Gordon being reinstated

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 11:03:30 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is being reinstated by the NFL conditionally, according to a source. He will be suspended for the first four games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is an elite fantasy receiver when he's on the field. The problem is he's played in only 19 games since 2013 and was suspended all of 2015. He did total 1,646 yards on 87 catches in '13, though, so he certainly has high-end potential. However, don't overvalue Gordon, since he hasn't played in forever and will be in a new system with a new QB. Take him for upside as a WR3.

Browns | Isaiah Crowell to dominate carries?

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:54:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell could reach 1,000 rushing yards this year, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot, and Cabot believes Crowell is going to receive a "bulk" of the carries this season.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the endorsement of Crowell, backfield mate Duke Johnson is still waiting to steal some carries and soak up a majority of the targets in the passing game. Throw in Cleveland's suspect offense, and Crowell is likely ticketed for RB3 territory.

Browns | Duke Johnson to line up at WR

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 07:56:30 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will line up at wide receiver at times during the season because the team likes to find different ways to throw passes to Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson may not start at running back this season but should receive plenty of touches in 2016. Johnson likely will have more value in point-per-reception leagues since he will be involved in the passing game. Johnson should be a middle-round option in most fantasy leagues.

Browns | Cleveland has plays for Terrelle Pryor

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 07:45:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson has drawn up plays to get the ball into WR Terrelle Pryor's hands and allow him to run in the open field.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has caught only two passes in his career for 64 yards but should be more involved in the offense this season. Pryor probably should not be selected in most fantasy leagues but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Browns | Josh Gordon decision not imminent

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 06:15:26 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has no timetable for a decision on his potential reinstatement, but one source said it isn't expected for at least six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: That would take us very close to the start of the season. Even then, there's no guarantee he would be able to play and contribute immediately. Gordon has WR1 talent, but with the dearth of talent at the position in fantasy, taking him as anything more than a WR3 with a WR4 that has significant upside isn't a shrewd move.

Browns | Josh Gordon meets with commish

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 09:54:26 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon met with commissioner Roger Goodell Wednesday, July 20, regarding his possible return to football, according to sources. Gordon can reapply for reinstatement Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot to be determined with Gordon, including how many games he'd have to miss before rejoining the Browns. Stay tuned, but Gordon has elite potential at his position, and we've seen him put up WR1 numbers before with a less-than-ideal situation at quarterback in Cleveland.
