Browns | DeShone Kizer in the mix for starting job

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 06:44:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer will get the opportunity to compete for the team's starting quarterback job with QBs Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan and Brock Osweiler, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Kizer is named Cleveland's No. 1 quarterback, he should be avoided outside of keeper and dynasty fantasy formats. There is a good chance that the Browns will release Osweiler but the team is still on the lookout for a veteran QB to bridge the gap while Kizer gets accustomed to the offense.

Browns | Cleveland selects DeShone Kizer

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 17:47:40 -0700

The Cleveland Browns selected Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Kizer could be a starting option for the Browns as soon as this season, but owners should avoid him in 2017 even if he starts. Owners in keeper leagues may consider him as a late-round option because he could become a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the future.

Browns | Gary Barnidge cut

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 12:23:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge was released Friday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku is obviously the future in Cleveland, and the Browns needed less than 24 hours to decide that would be the case. The 31-year-old Barnidge should find another team in short order, while Njoku will probably split time with Seth DeValve early on until Cleveland is ready to trust him full-time. The 20-year-old Njoku is probably too raw to be worthy of redraft consideration in 2017, but he is a very intriguing late first-round option in rookie drafts.

Browns | Cleveland turning focus to AJ McCarron?

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:54:49 -0700

The Cleveland Browns have "touched base" with the Cincinnati Bengals in regards to trading for QB AJ McCarron, according to's Ian Rapoport, who acknowledged talks do not "sound like they've gotten too far".

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals reportedly were not willing to take anything less than a first-rounder for McCarron last week, so this is a deal that probably won't get done. Browns head coach Hue Jackson obviously knows and believes in McCarron from their time together in Cincinnati, but he isn't worth trading a 2018 first-round pick for, especially when that draft is projected to have anywhere from three to five potential blue-chip quarterbacks available.

Browns | Gary Barnidge to be released

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:01:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge has been informed he will be released, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Browns drafted from Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku last night, this news comes as a bit of a surprise and basically opens the door for the raw rookie to start right away if he shows enough in camp. The 31-year-old Barnidge was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and finished with 55 catches a season ago, so it shouldn't take long for him to find a new gig.

Browns | David Njoku selected by the Browns

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 20:31:22 -0700

The Cleveland Browns selected Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Njoku should have a role in the passing game right away because the Browns do not have a great receiver corps. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy drafts this upcoming season but can become a starting fantasy tight end in a few years.

Browns | Cleveland looking to acquire Kirk Cousins

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 17:56:11 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is a player the Cleveland Browns are trying to acquire.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have been looking to find a long-term quarterback for a while and are working on acquiring Cousins. Cousins has played well over the last two seasons but received the franchise tag for the second straight offseason. He would be the starting quarterback if the Browns add him, but he would not have a lot of weapons to work with in the passing game. Owners in fantasy leagues can consider Cousins a fringe No. 1 quarterback or a solid No. 2 quarterback.
