Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) is expected to need two to four weeks to recover from a broken collarbone in his non-throwing shoulder. He wanted to harness the left shoulder and continue playing but the team denied his request.
Fantasy Tip: QB Cody Kessler will serve as the team's interim starter, with QB Charlie Whitehurst backing him up. Both players possess little fantasy value, although Kessler could be useful as a bench player in cavernous seasonal leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell "looked more explosive than ever last week", according to ESPN's Pat McManamon, who went on to say he believes Crowell will remain "the main guy" with Duke Johnson serving as the change-of-pace back.
Fantasy Tip: Although Crowell ranks fifth in the league with 195 yards rushing, it's been well-documented how fluky most of those yards have been, as 40 of them came on three draw plays at the end of a blowout loss in Week 1 and 85 more came on a complete defensive bust last week. With Cody Kessler expected to lead the offense for the next two months, the entire offense is most likely doomed. Since he provides very little in the passing game, it is highly unlikely Crowell will be anything more than a middling flex in a few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: After earning a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2014, Parkey missed the bulk of the 2015 season due to a groin injury and hasn't displayed the same effectiveness since returning, so he should not be considered a strong fantasy option.

The Cleveland Browns are expected to sign free-agent PK Cody Parkey (Eagles), according to a league source. PK Patrick Murray (knee) injured his left knee during the team's walkthrough Friday, Sept. 23, and he is listed as questionable on the injury report for Week 3's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Tip: Although Parkey made the Pro Bowl in 2014, he missed most of the 2015 season due to a groin injury and hasn't been the same player since. He should not be viewed as a great fantasy option at this point.

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand), CB Ibraheim Campbell (hamstring), C Cameron Erving (chest, lung), QB Josh McCown (shoulder) and DE Carl Nassib (hand) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and have been ruled out for Week 3. DT Stephen Paea (elbow), DT Danny Shelton (knee), TE Randall Telfer (neck) and OT Joe Thomas (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Murray may be a game-time decision for Week 3, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) suffered a non-displaced broken clavicle in a Week 2 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and is expected to miss two months. Rookie third-round pick Cody Kessler will start in the interim, while newly signed Charlie Whitehurst will serve as his backup.

Cleveland Browns SS Ibraheim Campbell (hamstring), C Cameron Erving (chest) and DE Carl Nassib (hand) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22. DT Stephen Paea (elbow), DT Danny Shelton (knee), TE Randall Telfer (neck) and OT Joe Thomas (non-injury) were full participants.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins has been targeted six times over the first two games of the season but should be more involved in the passing game with Coleman out. Hawkins probably can be avoided in most leagues because of the team's quarterback situation.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 06:16:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Browns' offense is in dire straits until Josh Gordon returns. Andrew Hawkins could slide into the starting role and be a flex consideration against the Miami Dolphins this week.
