    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has only 'scratched the surface' of his potential, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

    Huddle Up: Crowell flirted with 1,000 yards last year and scored eight times, and after the Browns upgraded their offensive line in the offseason, he could improve across the board. Consider him a quality flex option with RB2 potential.

  • Posted: 5/31/2017 12:57pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell could receive more carries in 2017 because head coach Hue Jackson said the Browns have to run the ball more this upcoming season than they did in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Crowell will be the starting running back this season and should see more than the 198 carries he received in 2016 as long as he can stay healthy. He rushed for 952 yards and eight touchdowns this past season and as a chance to reach the 1,000-yard mark in 2017. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 running back in leagues.

  • Posted: 5/13/2017 3:07pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell recently signed his restricted free-agent contract tender, but he was absent from the team's voluntary offseason program prior to the signing and may not return until mandatory minicamp in June.

    Huddle Up: Crowell really doesn't need to be at voluntary OTAs given the fact he knows head coach Hue Jackson's offense already, so this protest - if it even is one - shouldn't have any effect on him for the upcoming season. Despite his fine overall numbers in 2016, Crowell was a bit inconsistent from week-to-week, so the upgrades the Browns made in the offseason - especially to their offensive line - should keep him firmly in the RB2 conversation.

  • Posted: 5/10/2017 4:53pm ET

    Cleveland Browns restricted free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell signed his one-year tender offer Wednesday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Crowell should be the starting running back in 2017 but will share some of his snaps with Duke Johnson. He will see most of his work on first and second downs but may not be involved in the passing game. Owners in standard leagues should consider Crowell as a No. 3 fantasy running back.

  • Posted: 4/21/2017 4:28pm ET

    Cleveland Browns restricted free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell has not signed his tender offer at this point.

    Huddle Up: Crowell likely will be back with the Browns next season and could receive most of the carries. He finished the 2016 season with 952 yards and seven touchdowns and can be a No. 3 running back for fantasy owners next season.

  • Posted: 4/21/2017 6:19am ET

    Cleveland Browns restricted free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell has yet to sign his tender, and the deadline to sign offer sheets with other teams was Thursday, April 20.

    Huddle Up: Crowell doesn't have a lot of leverage here as he doesn't accrue any service time and will be a restricted free agent again next offseason if he doesn't play. He had a career-high 4.8 yards per carry, 952 rushing yards (one off his career high in TDs with seven), 40 catches and 319 receiving yards. He'd be a low-end RB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 3/13/2017 12:17pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has received trade interest from at least three teams, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler. The Browns placed a second-round tender on their restricted free agent.

    Huddle Up: Crowell was one of the very few bright spots for the Browns last season, totaling nearly 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns. If he stays with the Browns, Crowell has low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 potential despite splitting time with Duke Johnson.

  • Posted: 2/28/2017 8:06am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/20/2017 12:53pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has reached a 'stalemate' with the team regarding talks for a contract extension. The two sides were previously in 'heavy talks' to get a deal done.

    Huddle Up: Crowell might be better off staying in Cleveland, where he has established himself as a fine starting running back three years into his NFL career. In fact, the 24-year-old has increased his rushing total in each season, while accumulating 19 touchdowns on the ground over that span. As long as his situation with the Browns remains consistent, he can continue to be a solid RB2 fantasy option in 2017.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 2:09pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 16 times for 54 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also had four receptions for four yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Crowell had a strong fantasy performance, but not many likely benefited from the output. He will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17 in a poor fantasy matchup to wrap up the regular season.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 2:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 10 times for 113 yards, including a 42-yard run, in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: The Browns may be a mess, but Crowell has been a decent play when healthy. He certainly isn't an RB1 by any stretch of the imagination, but it's safe to call him an RB2 for the remainder of the year.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 8:32pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 16 times for 44 yards in the Week 12 game against the New York Giants and he added six receptions for 47 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has found the end zone in four games, and his yardage totals have taken a hit after the Browns are usually behind, abandoning the run sooner rather than later. Crowell is nothing more than a RB3 at this point of the fantasy season.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 2:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed for 10 yards on eight carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has been held to under 30 yards in each of the last four games and has only one touchdown during that span. He should still be involved in the running game but should only be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 8:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell will battle the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10 Thursday, Nov. 10. The Ravens rank second in the NFL, and first in the AFC, giving up just 76.1 yards per game with four touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Crowell had a disastrous game against Dallas before the team abandoned the run after getting down early. Crowell has two touchdowns in the past three games, and five rushing scores overall. But treat him more as a flex fantasy option for Week 10 in Baltimore.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 2:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell caught four passes for 63 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9. He also rushed for four yards on six carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: The Browns struggled in the running game against the Cowboys, so Crowell was more involved in the passing game. Crowell should continue to receive most of the carries and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option moving forward.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 6:50pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed 11 times for just 29 yards in the Week 8 game against the New York Jets, but at least he scored a touchdown. Crowell also hauled in two receptions for 34 yards.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has scored a touchdown in five of his eight games so far this season. He hasn't had a 100-yard rushing performance in four games dating back to Week 4, but he remains a low-end RB2 in most standard leagues and must-start RB2 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 1:44pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed for 63 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. He also caught three passes for 16 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Crowell received the majority of the carries during the game and should continue to be main runner for the Browns moving forward. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 2:57pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell ran 15 times for 112 yards and scored one touchdown Sunday, Oct. 2, in a 31-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Crowell appears to have a handle on the Browns' No. 1 running back spot, which may carry more weight given the struggles of the team. Some matchups may be worse than others, but overall Crowell should do well.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 2:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Crowell should continue to receive a majority of the carries during the game and will be facing a Washington Redskins team that has struggled against the run. He should be a decent No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 1:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Crowell was upgraded from limited to full from Wednesday to Thursday, so he should be good to go for Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. Washington has been porous against the run this year, giving up over 100 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns per game to running backs. Crowell is solidly in high-end RB2 territory.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 4:15pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has received at least 15 carries in each of the last two games and has rushed for 212 yards and one touchdown during that span. He should continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 6:47pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell carried 15 times for 79 yards in the Week 3 overtime loss against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted once but did not have any catches.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has emerged as a solid RB2 over the past two games. He'll look to keep it going in Week 4 at Washington.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 9:47am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell 'looked more explosive than ever last week', according to ESPN's Pat McManamon, who went on to say he believes Crowell will remain 'the main guy' with Duke Johnson serving as the change-of-pace back.

    Huddle Up: Although Crowell ranks fifth in the league with 195 yards rushing, it's been well-documented how fluky most of those yards have been, as 40 of them came on three draw plays at the end of a blowout loss in Week 1 and 85 more came on a complete defensive bust last week. With Cody Kessler expected to lead the offense for the next two months, the entire offense is most likely doomed. Since he provides very little in the passing game, it is highly unlikely Crowell will be anything more than a middling flex in a few weeks.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 2:52pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed for 133 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2. He also caught one pass for 15 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has been receiving a majority of the carries at running back, while Duke Johnson has been used more as a receiver. Crowell should continue to be the main runner for Cleveland and could be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/16/2016 6:24pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell will be 'turned loose' in Week 2, according to head coach Hue Jackson. 'We just have to hand it to him enough times,' Jackson said. 'If you have a runner you believe in, you have to give him the ball.'

    Huddle Up: Jackson clearly believes in Crowell, but the Browns have to be competitive in order to stick with the running game, and a matchup with Baltimore in Week 2 isn't ideal. At best, Crowell is a flex candidate.

  • Posted: 7/25/2016 8:42am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Hue Jackson is the coach, so you know there will be a high volume of carries. If you slot Crowell in the Jeremy Hill role and Duke Johnson playing the part of Giovani Bernard from Jackson's last stop as OC in Cincinnati, Crowell should see the larger portion of a 60/40 split in carries. He'll need to be better than last year's 3.8 yards per carry to reach the 1,000-yard mark, but all indications are he'll be given the opportunity to do so.

  • Posted: 7/12/2016 1:12pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell might be in hot water for posting a controversial anti-police photo on social media, but beat writer Mary Kay Cabot says that the team is not believed to have any plans to cut the embattled back.

    Huddle Up: Maybe so, but perhaps the Browns will now plan on moving second-year back Duke Johnson more toward the forefront and rely less on Crowell.
