Browns | Isaiah Crowell has second-round tender

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 08:06:08 -0800

Cleveland Browns restricted free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell received a second-round tender Tuesday, Feb. 28, worth $2.81 million. The two sides are working on an extension.

Fantasy Tip: Crowell had his best season as a pro in 2016 with 952 rushing yards (4.8 yards per carry) seven touchdowns, 40 catches and 319 receiving yards. He's a solid RB2 in fantasy entering 2017 unless the team lands a major piece to usurp him.

Browns | No franchise tag for Terrelle Pryor

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 12:31:35 -0800

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor is not expected to be given the franchise tag before the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, March 1. The Browns are hoping to sign Pryor to a long-term contract before free agency begins. Pryor has already said he would like to stay with the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor was one of the few bright spots for the Browns last year, pacing the team with 77 catches, 1,007 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. His age, size and athleticism, not to mention his running ability, make him one of the better young receivers in the NFL. Pryor is a WR2 option heading into 2017 fantasy drafts.

Browns | Terrelle Pryor may get transition tag

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 16:09:31 -0800

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor could receive the transition tag this offseason. The two sides are trying to work out a long-term deal, but the team has not given Pryor an indication on what they will decide.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor wants to stay with the Browns, so there is a good chance he will sign a new deal with the team. He played well in 2016 but did have to play with multiple quarterbacks during the season because of injuries. Pryor will be the No. 1 receiver for the Browns next season and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on the Browns' quarterback situation.

Browns | Duke Johnson in top-five in targets for RBs

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 20:19:48 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson was targeted 74 times this past season, placing him fifth amongst running backs in that category. He turned those targets into 53 receptions for 514 yards, though he did not record a receiving touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: To be fair, if Theo Riddick didn't miss six games, he easily would've bumped Johnson outside the top-five, but regardless, the second-year Browns tailback proved he can be a solid hand in deep and PPR formats. He also averaged nearly five yards per carry, registering 358 rushing yards on 73 attempts. It's too bad Isaiah Crowell is firmly entrenched as the club's No. 1 running back, but Johnson at least manages to have a regular role in Hue Jackson's offense.

Browns | Jimmy Garoppolo top target for Browns?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:17:40 -0800

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be the top target for Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. The Browns could consider quarterbacks like Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon if they are not able to acquire Garoppolo.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have two first-round picks in the 2017 draft, so they should have the pieces to move if they want to acquire Garoppolo. He played well when he served as the starter for the Patriots this past season but has not receive a lot of playing time during his career. Garoppolo would only be a No. 2 quarterback if he is traded to the Cleveland.

Browns | CLE may not tag Terrelle Pryor

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 14:25:37 -0800

The Cleveland Browns do not plan on placing the franchise tag on impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor, according to a source. The team would still like to sign Pryor to a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have a lot of salary cap space available, so they should be able to give Pryor a lucrative contract this offseason. Pryor has posted solid numbers over the last two season and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.

Browns | Terrelle Pryor wants to re-sign in Cleveland

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 22:10:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor has instructed his agents, Drew and Jason Rosenhaus, of his desire to remain in Cleveland. The agents will travel to Cleveland this week to conduct "strong discussions" about a new contract. Pryor stated his desire to continue the rebuilding process in Cleveland under head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has all the potential in the world, and he played well through a messy quarterback situation -- even with a broken hand. While the signal-caller situation may be a little unsettling at this point, Pryor is blossoming as a wideout and can make up for deficiencies in the nuances with raw athleticism. He is a quality WR2 gamble in fantasy drafts should the Browns re-up the former quarterback.

Browns | Cleveland unlikely to pursue Mike Glennon

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 11:43:59 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon probably will not be a target for the Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns probably will look at Jimmy Garoppolo and Tyrod Taylor this offseason, but Glennon could receive interest from teams looking for a starting quarterback. He has some success early in his career but has played in only two games in the last two seasons. Owners in all leagues can avoid Glennon in drafts no matter where he signs.

Browns | CLE QBs coach likes Tyrod Taylor 'a lot'

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 21:37:45 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is liked "a lot" by new Cleveland Browns quarterbacks coach David Lee, who spent the past two years coaching Taylor in Buffalo. In addition, Lee would "welcome continuing to work with him."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's status with the Bills is still up in the air, as he's due a lot of guaranteed money and the team hasn't yet decided their course of action. Furthermore, Taylor isn't willing to take a pay cut. Thus, there is a decent chance he could be released, and if that happens, the Browns look like a good fit for the dual-threat quarterback. Even though the Browns are coming off a 1-15 campaign, they could still provide Taylor with a solid amount of ammo to keep him fantasy relevant.

Browns | Cleveland to talk with Terrelle Pryor

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 15:34:21 -0800

The Cleveland Browns are scheduled to talk with the agent for impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor this week.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor is one of the better receivers that will be a free agent this offseason, but the Browns could place the franchise tag on Pryor if they are not able to reach a long-term agreement with him. He could be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners depending on the Browns quarterback situation.
