Fantasy Tip: Head coach Hue Jackson was able to utilize the backfield tandem of Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill while serving as the offensive coordinator in Cincinnati, and he could use Crowell and Johnson in similar fashion. Johnson has a little more upside, especially in PPR formats, but Crowell could be a serviceable RB3 if he handles the goal-line work.

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman is a candidate to return punts and kicks in his rookie season because of his great speed, short-area quickness and ability to make defenders miss, according to special teams coordinator Chris Tabor.
Fantasy Tip: This would give added value to Coleman in leagues that reward return yardage. He could end up as the Browns' No. 1 wide receiver when all is said and done. He's worth drafting as a low-end WR3.

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said he feels good about the state of the offensive line despite the departures of C Alex Mack and OT Mitchell Schwartz. C Cameron Erving has stepped up so far at center, according to Hamilton, while OT Alvin Bailey has done well at right tackle. Two rookie OTs Shon Coleman and Spencer Drango could also compete at right tackle.

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor said he is much improved as a receiver compared to where he was last year. "(I'm) 10 times (better than last year)," Pryor said after an OTA practice. "I look at the film and it amazes me, and I give that to (receivers coach Al) Saunders, because just sitting there and doing the extra meeting time with him and him really breaking down certain routes to me and how he wants them run, it's awesome." At 6-4, Pryor towers over most cornerbacks. He's playing with confidence in practices and is showing full effort.
Fantasy Tip: With Cleveland's wide receiver depth chart unsettled everywhere, Pryor could carve out a nice role in the passing game, especially since he has history with head coach Hue Jackson from their days in Oakland. However, with Robert Griffin a question mark at QB, Pryor's fantasy upside is on shaky ground. Consider him a WR5 flyer in deeper leagues.

Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas said he did not ask for a trade this offseason. He said he is excited with the way the team is heading after talking with head coach Hue Jackson and director of football operations Sashi Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson likely will be part of a committee at running back in 2016. Johnson could receive a majority of the work as the season goes on, which makes him a possible No. 2 fantasy running back for owners. Johnson should be seen as a No. 3 back at this point with the chance to be more.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns took a handful of receivers in the draft this year, namely Corey Coleman. Hartline's departure moves Andrew Hawkins and Marlon Moore up the depth chart. With Robert Griffin a wildcard at QB, Cleveland's receivers are all shaky propositions for fantasy owners. Hartline topped 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons with Miami but is unlikely to receive anything more than a complementary role if he lands with another squad.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman has big-play speed, but even as the top target, he only has so much upside in Cleveland's passing attack. Consider him a WR5 in standard leagues and a first-round option in rookie drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Robert Griffin III appears to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, but McCown may receive the chance to compete for the job during training camp. McCown has had some success in the past but probably would be a low-end No. 2 option in deeper leagues if he starts.

Cleveland Browns OT Alvin Bailey has received first-team repetitions at right tackle this offseason. Bailey will have competition at the position, but head coach Hue Jackson said Bailey has done a good job so far.
