Cleveland Browns news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 16:24:37 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West is the first rookie running back with at least 90 yards from scrimmage in his team's first two games since RB Chris Johnson (then, with the Tennessee Titans) and Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte in 2008.
Fantasy Tip: With Ben Tate sidelined due to injury, West is making the most of his opportunity. The rookie from Towson is worth a look as an RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore as long as Tate is on the sidelines.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel does not have a special offensive package in the game plan for Week 2, and would run the normal offense if he sees playing time, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
Fantasy Tip: There is no guarantee that Manziel will receive playing time this week, so owners in all leagues should avoid him.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge and Dray don't warrant fantasy consideration. This is a blow to Brian Hoyer, who had limited options to throw to with Cameron healthy. Hoyer will cost you $4,500 (9% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but he should be avoided except in deep leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Cameron was a pricey buy at $5,400 (10.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but you should avoid him altogether. Brian Hoyer's stock would also suffer if Cameron were to miss the game.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be under contract with the team through the 2015 season if he plays this season, as expected. He would be under team control through 2016 if his one-year suspension is upheld.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his suspension reduced from a season-long ban to 10 games following the new agreement between the league and the NFLPA on a new drug policy.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to scoop him up for later in the season if you can afford the dead roster spot for a couple of months. He is a must-start fantasy option when in the lineup.

Cleveland Browns DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), DT John Hughes (hamstring), OG Paul McQuistan (ankle) and LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) are listed as questionable for Week 2, while CB Buster Skrine (thumb) is listed as probable. Mingo did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12. Skrine fully participated in practice, while the other three players were limited during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will share the work at running back Week 2. West costs $4,800 at FantasyScore and Crowell costs $4,000, which makes both players solid options this week.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could be suspended for two additional games if he is convicted in his driving while intoxicated case in North Carolina. The hearing for the case is scheduled for Nov. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to hold onto Gordon as long as he has a chance to play at some point this season.
Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:33:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Gordon has a good chance to get back on the field this season if both sides vote in favor of the new policy. Owners that currently own Gordon should continue to hold onto him.

Fantasy Tip: It is not worth risking the $5,400 (10.8% of cap) in FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Look elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should have some rust upon his return. However, he needs to be owned in hopes of his potential return for Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Monitor his situation in case his suspension is lifted or reduced.

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) missed his second practice of the week Thursday, Sept. 11, and it's looking more likely that he won't suit up in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. He's dealing with a strained AC joint in his right shoulder after initially injuring it in the preseason. Cameron would be replaced by a tandem of TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray Sunday, Sept. 14, if he can't play.
Fantasy Tip: Don't risk the $5,400 (10.8% of cap) on Cameron in FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Barnidge and Dray can be ignored, too, if Cameron sits out.
