Josh Gordon - WRPosted 11/16/17 11:21am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is slated to begin practicing Monday, Nov. 20, according to head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson added that Gordon is doing all the right things, including showing up for meetings on time, and has been a 'pleasure to be around.'
Huddle Up: Whether or not Gordon's attitude and focus translate to the field remains to be seen. He's been out of the game since 2014, so the risk involved in starting him right away is obvious. Gordon's upside is clear, but don't start him immediately. Pick him up if he's still on waivers though.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 11/16/17 12:35pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Coleman is a welcome addition to a struggling Browns squad. He was the favorite target of DeShone Kizer before he was hurt, so there's no reason to think Coleman can't pick up where he left off. Pick him up if he's available on waivers.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 11/16/17 2:20pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Britt was able to reach the end zone in Week 10 but could see his playing time decrease with Corey Coleman back in the lineup. He has posted only 166 yards this season and can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 11/16/17 2:37pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Kizer has accounted for three touchdowns in the last two games but has thrown for at least 200 yards in only one of his last five games. Owners in all leagues should avoid Kizer because of his tough matchup.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 11/16/17 2:26pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Crowell probably will be able to play in Week 11 and will receive most of the carries in the running game. He has recorded a rushing touchdown in each of the last two games but will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense. Owners can consider Crowell a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 11/16/17 2:41pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been involved in the running and passing game over the last several games and has received at least 10 touches in the last three games. He should have a similar role against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 and could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 11/16/17 6:28pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has had two good weeks of practice and will be ready for a full workload in Week 11, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: Coleman likely will enter the starting lineup in his first week back and has a chance to see a solid amount of targets. He could be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues and should also have value in standard leagues.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 11/15/17 2:01pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: Kizer might be fine for Sunday, but he'll be facing the No. 1 pass defense in the NFL when the Jaguars visit. Jacksonville allowed 165.1 yards per game with just six touchdowns allowed through nine games. Kizer is even a borderline fantasy play as a low-end QB2 in two-quarterback formats.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 11/15/17 2:01pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (shoulder) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: Johnson appears to be good to go for Week 11, and he'll face a Jacksonville rush defense which ranks 25th in the NFL. It might be tough sledding catching the ball out of the backfield, however, as the Jags are strong against the pass.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 11/15/17 2:00pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) took part in a limited practice session on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: Crowell had one of his best performances of the season in Detroit and looks to build on that in Week 11 against Jacksonville. The Jags rank 25th in the NFL in rush defense, allowing 120.7 yards per game with six touchdowns, so Crowell could be a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats this week.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 11/15/17 2:00pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: Britt scored a touchdown last week, but he has mostly been a disappointment this season. He remains useful only to those in the very deepest of leagues.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 11/13/17 12:13pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) will be fully prepared to play in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Coleman is back. The bad news is that he's returning to face the best pass defense in the NFL in the Jacksonville Jaguars. On the year, the Jaguars have yielded just one touchdown to wide receivers. Coleman is a flex consideration at best.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 11/13/17 12:03pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer appeared to be more vocal with the defense and special teams throughout the Week 10 loss to the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Hue Jackson. The rookie is seemingly embracing his role as a leader.
Huddle Up: From a fantasy standpoint Kizer has actually been decent this year, thanks in large part to his running ability. Turnovers have been an issue, though. He's thrown at least one interception in all but one of the eight games in which he's played. Still, he's not a terrible backup fantasy quarterback pickup.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 11/12/17 12:23pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (rib) went to the locker room after suffering a rib injury in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Kizer will miss more time. Cody Kessler took over as the starting quarterback in Week 10 but is not a great fantasy option.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 11/8/17 7:06pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) said Wednesday, Nov. 8, that his previously injured hand is '100 percent healthy now.'
Huddle Up: Coleman's career thus far has been marred by injury since entering the league last year, but he's also proven to be very effective when healthy. If he can avoid the injury bug, the 2016 first-round draft pick can be a huge difference-maker for owners down the stretch. While Cleveland figures to have suspect quarterback play the rest of the way, Coleman should at last be heavily involved when he's on the field.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 11/7/17 11:37am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon officially returned to the Browns' facility Tuesday, Nov. 7, and is expected to participate in team meetings Wednesday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: Gordon won't be able to take the field for a few more weeks still, so don't think about starting him yet. When he does play, there is plenty of rust to shake off and the quarterback play has been some of the worst in the NFL. Gordon should merely be a fun, desperation flex play for teams eliminated from the playoffs.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 11/6/17 11:12am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list. He will participate in periods of practice Monday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Coleman will be a big help, when he does return, to what has been a stagnant Cleveland passing game. The second-year receiver was DeShone Kizer's favorite target before breaking his hand and there's no reason to believe that won't still be the case upon his return. When healthy, Coleman has WR2 upside, but he's better started as a WR3 or flex.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 11/1/17 3:35pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been reinstated by the NFL on a conditional basis and will begin practicing with the Browns starting Monday, Nov. 20. He can immediately take part in meetings and individual workouts and can be added to the active roster Monday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: There is a chance that Gordon will be able to play in December, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He has been successful when he has played and could be added in deeper leagues, but the team's quarterback situation will hurt his fantasy value.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 10/31/17 11:19am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon may be reinstated by the NFL soon, and it's possible the Browns are willing trade the rights to him before the traded deadline Tuesday, Oct. 31, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This is an interesting development considering Gordon has not played this year and all the off-field trouble he's been in in his young career. The talent is obviously there, though, and Gordon is still young at 26 years old. It would take a brave team to take another chance on Gordon. If he is traded, and reinstated, then he becomes a top waiver wire priority.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 10/31/17 10:28pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is set to meet with the NFL Wednesday, Nov. 1, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gordon, who hasn't played since 2014, is seeking reinstatement.
Huddle Up: There were some rumblings that Gordon's rights would be dealt, but the deadline came and went without any action. If Gordon were to be reinstated it'd be interesting to see what the Browns did with him. He was a legitimate big-play receiver prior to his issues so he'd definitely be of interest if he were to return to the NFL.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 10/29/17 9:06am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (head) left the team's Week 8 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Johnson will have the bye week to recover from the injury, so owners will need to check on Johnson's practice participation leading up to Week 10. He is a big part of the Browns passing game and should be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 10/29/17 9:53am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell had 64 rushing yards on 11 carries in Week 8's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, along with four receptions for 54 receiving yards.
Huddle Up: Crowell saw an increased role in the offense after Duke Johnson exited the game to be evaluated for a concussion. However, the Browns have a bye next week, giving Johnson additional time to recover from his injury, so Crowell's fantasy value is unlikely to increase for Week 10's contest against the Detroit Lions.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 10/29/17 9:44am ET
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 18-for-34 for 179 passing yards in Week 8's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, while being sacked three times. He also collected 18 yards on five rushing attempts, including a touchdown.
Huddle Up: On a positive note, Kizer did not throw any interceptions and was not pulled from the game prematurely. The Browns have a bye next week and Kizer is expected to remain the starter when the team returns to action against the Detroit Lions in Week 10 but he is not worth starting in any fantasy format.
Ricardo Louis - WRPosted 10/29/17 10:19am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis caught two passes for 42 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Louis has been targeted at least six times in five of the last six games but has been held to eight catches in the last three games combined. He appears to be the top receiver for the Browns at this point but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 10/29/17 10:15am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (head) rushed for 33 yards on six carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8. He also caught four passes for 10 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson left the game early because of an injury but has a good chance to be ready for Week 10. He is a valuable fantasy player because of his role in the running and passing game and should be a No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 10/29/17 10:24am ET
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (head) has cleared the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: It appears that Johnson will be fine for the team's Week 10 game, but owners should continue to monitor the situation over the next few weeks. He should be a flex option in standard leagues and a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 10/25/17 6:34am ET
Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was named the Week 8 starter Wednesday, Oct. 25.
Huddle Up: Kizer shouldn't be anywhere near starting lineups in fantasy, and he has a rough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings this week.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 10/22/17 5:03am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) was sent home from Houston last week after missing curfew prior to Week 6's game against the Texans. Since then, he has had talks with the coaching staff and apologized.
Huddle Up: Coleman is currently on the Reserve/Injured list due to a broken right hand suffered in Week 2's game versus the Baltimore Ravens. He is eligible to return to action for Week 11's contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars Nov. 19.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 10/22/17 5:48am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (groin, knee) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Britt was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He has been a colossal disappointment this season and is not worth starting in any fantasy format.
Kenny Britt - WRPosted 10/22/17 9:07am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (groin, knee) is active for Week 7's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Britt was a limited practice participant during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. Through his first four games, Britt has just eight receptions for 121 yards and is on thin ice with the organization after missing curfew last weekend. He's not worth owning, let alone starting, in any fantasy format.
