Cleveland Browns news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 17:59:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McCown and Kevin Hogan are candidates to start in Week 8 if Cody Kessler is not able to play. Neither player is a great fantasy option and should be avoided in all leagues.

Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas (knee) and CB Marcus Burley (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor was able to play last week despite the injury and was held to 18 yards during the game. He probably will be able to play in Week 8 and can be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues if he does not suffer a setback.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the week to see if Coleman will be cleared to play. He likely will rejoin the starting lineup when he plays again and should see a solid number of targets. He can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues if he is not eased back into the offense.

Fantasy Tip: McCown appears to have a chance to start in Week 8 if he is cleared to play and Cody Kessler is ruled out. He posted decent numbers in his only other start this season, but owners in all leagues will be able to find other options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Kessler will not be cleared until he passes all of his concussion tests, so his status for Week 8 is uncertain. Kevin Hogan appears to be the most likely candidate to start if Kessler is ruled out but should not be an option in any fantasy league.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman is working his way back but may miss at least one more week if he is not able to catch passes at this point. He should have a solid role in the passing game when he returns, but owners may want to see him play in a game before using him in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: While he probably wouldn't be a wise choice to start in fantasy, he'd be a clear upgrade to what the team has. McCown had a stretch of fantasy viability early on last season so keep him on your watch lists if you have a starter with a late bye week.

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) has proven his toughness and must try to better protect himself, according to head coach Hue Jackson. "I don't want to take the fight out of him, but he also has to understand the situation he's in," Jackson said. Kessler left the Browns' Week 7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals with a concussion. "If you're not playing, then we're hurting the team," Jackson added. "I don't think Cody was trying to do anything to hurt his football team. He was trying to do everything he could to help his team score."
Fantasy Tip: Kessler is only a rookie and has been thrown to the wolves due to injuries, but he has taken a beaten in his young inaugural campaign. It's unclear if Kessler will be cleared from the concussion protocol in time for Sunday's game, but the Browns will leave for London on Thursday. If Kessler doesn't make that trip then he won't be playing. Either way, starting a Cleveland quarterback is still highly ill advised.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman has missed the last five weeks because of his broken hand but may be able to return to the field soon. He likely will rejoin the starting lineup when he is able to play again and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) was reportedly feeling good a few hours after suffering a concussion in a Week 7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and is holding out hope to play in Week 8 against the New York Jets.
Fantasy Tip: Kessler makes for a fine streaming option this week if he is cleared early enough, but he is probably only an option in two-quarterback leagues since there aren't many notable quarterbacks going on bye this week. Stay tuned for more updates on his status throughout the week.
