Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon avoided an additional two-game suspension by pleading guilty to a driving while intoxicated charge in Raleigh, N.C., Tuesday, Sept. 16. Gordon's guilty plea will not be disciplined under the new drug policy.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon should be back after he serves the final eight games of his suspension. He should help fantasy owners in the later weeks of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be on the field this season unless he has another incident before the end of the suspension. Owners should consider keeping him on the bench if they have the room since he should help in the later weeks of the season.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) will be a game-time decision in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens. Head coach Mike Pettine said he was "cautiously optimistic" that Cameron would play Wednesday, Sept. 17, but offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, Sept. 18, that Cameron was "extremely limited" in practice.
Fantasy Tip: You'll have to wait until Sunday morning to see if Cameron is in the starting lineup. His price of $6,900 (13.8% of salary cap) is probably best to be avoided for another week.

Fantasy Tip: Tate should not be considered in FantasyScore in Week 3. Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will continue to handle the workload at running back while Tate is out.

Fantasy Tip: Cameron's status for Week 3 may not be known until right before kickoff. With a FantasyScore price of $6,900 (13.80% of cap), it may be too risky to use Cameron this week.

Cleveland Browns LB Paul Kruger has two sacks, eight tackles (three for a loss) and a pass defensed. He's having a breakthrough in the new system designed by head coach Mike Pettine and defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil. They have moved Kruger inside and out to create mismatches, and his pass coverage has improved.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's playing time is decided during the game, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan said using Manziel makes the defense have to think more about what the offense is capable of doing. Furthermore, whether Manziel plays or not depends on the defensive fronts and coverages the team is facing, Shanahan added.
Fantasy Tip: Manziel still isn't worth starting in any format.

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18. WR Travis Benjamin (knee), DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), DT John Hughes (hamstring), OL Paul McQuistan (ankle), P Spencer Lanning (shoulder) and CB Buster Skrine (thumb) were full participants.
Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:13:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cameron continues to look like he will be a go for the team's Week 3 game. With a FantasyScore price of $6,900 (13.80% of cap), he may struggle to live up to expectations, especially if he is limited.
Thu, 18 Sep 2014 10:58:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tate is not expected to play in Week 3 and should not be considered in FantasyScore. Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will continue to handle the workload at running back while Tate is out.

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17. WR Travis Benjamin (knee), DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), DT John Hughes (hamstring), P Spencer Lanning (shoulder), OL Paul McQuistan (ankle) and CB Buster Skrine (thumb) all fully participated in practice.
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:15:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tate is not expected to play in Week 3, and should not be used in FantasyScore. Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will both continue to handle the workload at running back.
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:14:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The fact that Cameron is back on the practice field is a good sign for his chances to play in Week 3. His FantasyScore price of $6,900 (13.80% of cap) may be better spent elsewhere, especially with his status being up in the air and the potential for him to be limited.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should be owned and stashed until he's eligible to return.
Tue, 16 Sep 2014 18:18:42 -0700
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his season-long suspension officially cut to 10 games Tuesday, Sept. 16. He could also avoid serving the mandatory two-game suspension for his DWI because he pled guilty to his drunken-driving charge early Tuesday before an agreement on the new-drug testing policy was reached, according to a league source.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Gordon could miss just eight more games and be eligible to return Sunday, Nov. 23.
