Cleveland Browns news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:54:37 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell could reach 1,000 rushing yards this year, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot, and Cabot believes Crowell is going to receive a "bulk" of the carries this season.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the endorsement of Crowell, backfield mate Duke Johnson is still waiting to steal some carries and soak up a majority of the targets in the passing game. Throw in Cleveland's suspect offense, and Crowell is likely ticketed for RB3 territory.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson may not start at running back this season but should receive plenty of touches in 2016. Johnson likely will have more value in point-per-reception leagues since he will be involved in the passing game. Johnson should be a middle-round option in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has caught only two passes in his career for 64 yards but should be more involved in the offense this season. Pryor probably should not be selected in most fantasy leagues but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Fantasy Tip: That would take us very close to the start of the season. Even then, there's no guarantee he would be able to play and contribute immediately. Gordon has WR1 talent, but with the dearth of talent at the position in fantasy, taking him as anything more than a WR3 with a WR4 that has significant upside isn't a shrewd move.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot to be determined with Gordon, including how many games he'd have to miss before rejoining the Browns. Stay tuned, but Gordon has elite potential at his position, and we've seen him put up WR1 numbers before with a less-than-ideal situation at quarterback in Cleveland.

Cleveland Browns DE Desmond Bryant (pectoral) is hoping that he can return this year after suffering a torn pectoral muscle while working out in May. At the earliest, he could be cleared by mid-November with six or seven games left in the season. Bryant led the Browns in sacks in 2015 with six. He'll resume running and doing lower body work as soon as his incision heals.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon would be welcomed back by the team if he is reinstated after eligible to apply Aug. 1, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot. Head coach Hue Jackson has said everyone will begin with a clean slate and that includes Gordon.
Fantasy Tip: If Gordon is able to return, he could be a tremendous fantasy asset. It's uncertain if and when he'll be reinstated, and even when he is it remains to be seen whether he can stay clean or not. He is the definition of a high-risk, high-reward pick.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III has worked hard on his pocket presence over the past several years, including during this spring under head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton. In spring practices he worked inside and out of the pocket, too.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Griffin can transform himself into a pocket passer who occasionally runs. It would help tremendously if RG3 can get Josh Gordon back from the suspension, too. Regardless, he is only worth a look as a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Cleveland Browns DE Carl Nassib (calf) missed mandatory minicamp in June due to a calf injury, but he is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Nassib is expected to work some inside, and will be an even more important player with DE Desmond Bryant (pectoral) expected to miss the entire season.

Cleveland Browns RB Raheem Mostert is considered to be firmly in the mix to make the final roster. RBs Glenn Winston and Terrell Watson also have a good chance to make the cut, according to Patrick Maks of clevelandbrowns.com.
Fantasy Tip: Mostert is better served as a returner on special teams for the Browns. His fantasy value will be minimal as long as Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson are healthy.
