Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 1/2/17 8:14am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) will have surgery on the torn ligament in his finger Wednesday, Jan. 4.
Huddle Up: Pryor broke out with a 77-1,007-4 season, but there are questions as to whether he can duplicate them. A lot will depend on what the Browns do in free agency and the draft. Pryor will be a risky WR3 option in next year's drafts.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 1/1/17 2:52pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III threw for 232 yards and had two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Whether the Browns go in another direction at quarterback remains to be seen. They are unlikely to send Terrelle Pryor back to QB because Pryor had over 1,000 receiving yards in 2016. Griffin could get another chance, unless the Browns select a QB in the draft and put him to use immediately.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/31/16 4:55pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III has roughly a 50 percent chance at returning as the starter for the team in 2017, according to ESPNCleveland's Tony Grossi.
Huddle Up: The upcoming draft lacks a top-flight prospect at the position, while the top free-agent quarterbacks figure to be players such as Tyrod Taylor and Mike Glennon. The Browns are reportedly interested in trading for New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo as well. It could be argued any or all the alternatives may be better than Griffin, who has shown next to nothing while also struggling to stay healthy yet again.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/29/16 6:43pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Pryor's production has disappeared since Robert Griffin III has returned, and with Griffin in line to start in Week 17, Pryor should be avoided.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 12/26/16 9:37am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (ankle) played sporadically in Week 16 against the San Diego Chargers, shuttling in and out of the game due to an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been an acceptable flex play in PPR leagues for most of this year, but with the Browns getting their first win last week and the scatback clearly not 100 percent, don't expect to see him playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17. Cleveland would likely turn to George Atkinson III and Darius Jackson to fill the void left behind by Johnson if he sits out.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/24/16 2:11pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor posted three catches for 36 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers on five targets.
Huddle Up: Pryor has been struggling down the stretch, and he has devolved into more of a low-end WR3 in fantasy leagues heading into the regular season finale in Pittsburgh.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 12/24/16 2:10pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge racked up five receptions for a team-high 42 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers on six targets.
Huddle Up: Barnidge was a giant disappointment this season from a fantasy perspective thanks to just one visit to the end zone. That touchdown came in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team's Week 17 opponent.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 12/24/16 2:10pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson rushed seven times for 28 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers, and he added two receptions for 21 yards on his only two targets.
Huddle Up: Johnson is clearly behind Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart heading into the Week 17 finale in Pittsburgh, and Johnson is only worth a look as a flex play in PPR leagues in the deepest of formats.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 12/24/16 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.
Cody Kessler - QBPosted 12/24/16 2:08pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler completed two of his three pass attempts for 11 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers, finishing up for the injured QB Robert Griffin III (concussion).
Huddle Up: Kessler could get the starting nod in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he would obviously have very little fantasy appeal in that matchup.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/24/16 2:07pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) left the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers due to concussion and he was unable to return.
Huddle Up: RG3 finished 17 for 25 with 164 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions and 42 yards on six runs before departing. Even if he is able to return from yet another injury he isn't a very good fantasy option in Week 17.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/23/16 12:27pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) got in a full practice Friday, Dec. 23, after being a limited participant in each of the prior two days.
Huddle Up: Pryor has been terrible for owners lately at the most important time of the fantasy campaign, but considering how reliable he was previously, it's hard to bench him for a matchup that could yield a lot of points. One must also consider that with the Browns likely to fall behind early, as usual, they could be airing it out often, which may lead to more targets for the former Raider. Consider him as a WR3.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/22/16 12:22pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 22.
Huddle Up: Pryor has struggled to find chemistry with Robert Griffin III and has only 22 yards in the last two games. He should not be more than a low-end No. 3 receiver and flex option in deeper leagues and could be benched if owners have better options.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/21/16 1:13pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Pryor is expected to play despite the injury, but it is not known if the injury will affect his ability to catch the ball. He has been limited to 22 yards combined in the last two games and has not posted great numbers with Robert Griffin III as the quarterback. Owners probably should avoid Pryor and look for other options.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/21/16 8:39pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor is a building block for the future despite a drop in production recently, head coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Dec. 21. However, not everyone in the organization feels the same way. However, Jackson likes Pryor. 'You guys know I have a tremendous amount of confidence in Terrelle. I think he is only going to get better as he moves forward. Terrelle is like most guys. He wants it all. He wants to be the best at what he does,' Jackson said.
Huddle Up: Pryor leads the 0-14 Browns with 67 catches, 877 yards and four touchdowns in his first full season as a receiver. He has tailed off in recent games, failing to jell with Robert Griffin III. Treat him more as a WR4 as he plays through a finger injury down the stretch.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/20/16 8:58am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) caught everything thrown to him in practice during the 30-minute portion open to the media Tuesday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Pryor carries some drop risk, and the San Diego Chargers have been good against opposing WRs the last five weeks. He's still worth a flex play in PPR leagues.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/20/16 10:13am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) reportedly looked good and caught everything thrown to him during the 30-minute portion of practice open to the media Tuesday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: While it bodes well for his ability to play on Christmas Eve against the San Diego Chargers, he has not performed well since Robert Griffin III took over as the starter. The Chargers have held up well against opposing receivers as well this season, making Pryor a risky start and probably nothing more than a middling flex play in Week 16.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/20/16 12:34pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) will play through his finger injury and undergo surgery in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Needless to say, a finger injury can hinder a wide receiver's performance. The finger combined with less than stellar quarterback play makes Pryor a risky proposition for those remaining in the fantasy playoffs.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/19/16 7:22am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) will have an MRI on his sprained finger Monday, Dec. 19, to determine if he has ligament damage.
Huddle Up: Pryor has become a solid WR3 with his 67-877-4 line on the season. His status for Week 16 could have some light shed on it after the MRI.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/19/16 8:50am ET
Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) plans to play through potential ligament damage in his knuckle but will likely need surgery after the season.
Huddle Up: The San Diego Chargers have been good against opposing WRs the last five weeks. Pryor admitted the injury affected him Sunday, and he'll be a risky flex option in Week 16.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/18/16 1:56pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor caught four passes for 19 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Pryor has been held to 22 yards in the last two games and may need to work on his chemistry with Robert Griffin III if he wants to finish the season strong. He may be a flex option against the San Diego Chargers in Week 16 but could also be benched if owners have better options.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/17/16 7:23pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III needs to show 'a jump in performance' against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15, according to head coach Hue Jackson, and offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said the team is counting on Griffin to be more consistent.
Huddle Up: If Griffin wants to make a case to be Cleveland's starter next season, he needs to show something in the final weeks. In the meantime, he should be avoided in all fantasy formats.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/11/16 1:42pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was 12-for-27 for 104 yards and an interception in his return to the field Sunday, Dec. 11, against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Griffin is not a starter by any stretch of the imagination in this year's fantasy leagues. He could be a late-round flyer for next year's drafts if the next few weeks show signs of improvement. Anything special Griffin did today was icing on the cake, as he came back to the field following a three-month absence.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 12/11/16 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.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/10/16 5:18pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor was called 'just a guy' by Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Jones, and Jones said Pryor pushes off every route.
Huddle Up: Defensive backs have been trash talking Pryor lately, and he has responded with 228 yards in his last two games combined. Cincinnati shut him down in their first meeting, but Pryor is still a high-upside WR3 in Week 14.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/9/16 11:08am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was activated off the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: The Browns hope to get a four-game look at RG3 before deciding what direction to go this offseason. Given the current state of things in Cleveland, don't expect it to go well. He can ignored in fantasy leagues.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/9/16 8:37pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will 'add spice' to the running game, running backs coach Kirby Wilson said Friday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: After a solid start to the year, Isaiah Crowell hasn't run for more than 44 yards in each of his last five games. Don't expect much of a change with Griffin under center, and Crowell remains a risky flex play in Week 14.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/8/16 7:56am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) was named the starter for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The Bengals have been decent against the QB position over the last five weeks. This wouldn't be the matchup to start RG III after a lengthy layoff.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 11/28/16 3:40pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (knee) tweaked his knee in Week 12 and was limited in his snaps, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: Barnidge usually plays better with Josh McCown at quarterback, but the knee ailment obviously impacted his play. Barnidge has regressed this season, largely due to erratic quarterback play, and he should be viewed as a TE2 going forward.
Andrew Hawkins - WRPosted 11/27/16 8:34pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Andrew Hawkins was targeted twice and held without a catch in the Week 12 game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Hawkins entered the season with fantasy promise, but the emergence of Terrelle Pryor as the top receiving option and the return of Corey Coleman from injury means Hawkins should be left to the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.
