  Browns | Robert Griffin III to start Week 14    Thu Dec 8, 10:56 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) was named the starter for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: We're sort of fascinated by this. Prior to the season, we saw Griffin and Terrelle Pryor develop some nice chemistry and thought that Griffin could be a good fit in the offense. We never got a chance to see how that would work out until now. We wouldn't put Griffin as more than a middling QB2, but we are anxious to see what he can do even in the dumpster fire in Cleveland.

  Browns | Robert Griffin on track to start    Wed Dec 7, 03:51 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) likely will be the starting quarterback in Week 14 as long as he does not suffer a setback during practice this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Things have been trending this way for some time. The Browns practiced Cody Kessler, Josh McCown, Kevin Hogan and Griffin on Wednesday. Griffin's rushing ability makes him a better-than-some-would-think streaming option if he starts.

  Browns | Cody Kessler listed as starter    Tue Dec 6, 10:55 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler is listed as the starting quarterback on the unofficial Week 14 depth chart.

Footballguys view: Robert Griffin III could push Kessler for that starting job for the rest of the season. At this time, Kessler sits on top of the depth chart but watch to see if Griffin ends up in that spot. Any fantasy owner streaming QBs in the fantasy playoffs should be monitoring this situation.

  Browns | 'All signs point' to RG3 starting    Mon Dec 5, 12:02 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to get at least one more chance to prove he can be the team's quarterback of the future and 'all signs point' to it happening over the final month of the season, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Footballguys view: Never say never, and Griffin looks to be on track to play again for the Browns. This could be a four-game audition for Griffin as the Browns are just looking to the future. If he impresses, there's a chance he could stick around in 2017. He has a cap hit of $9.25 million next year with only $1.75 million in dead money.

  Browns | Cody Kessler clears concussion protocol    Wed Nov 30, 12:14 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol and returned to practice Monday, Nov. 28.

  Browns | Robert Griffin will get extended look    Tue Nov 29, 08:03 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will keep the starting job for the remainder of the season 'once he gets back in there,' according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: At one point it seemed like Griffin had played his final snap for the Browns. Then, rookie QB Cody Kessler was concussed and it opened the door for Griffin to return. He's a player who could have fantasy value due to the talent around him. Add Griffin to your roster if you can burn a spot on your bench with a 'lottery ticket' player.

  Browns | Robert Griffin cleared for contact    Tue Nov 29, 11:43 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for contact Tuesday, Nov. 29. He will practice during the bye week with QB Cody Kessler (concussion) and QB Josh McCown, and the team will decide on a starter.

Footballguys view: Griffin should be added off the waiver wire if you've got a spot on your bench. If he gets the starting nod, Griffin could post QB1 numbers due to his rushing ability and the talent around him with pass-catchers like Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman.

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (knee) tweaked his knee in Week 12 and was limited in his snaps, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

The Cleveland Browns are hoping QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) can start again this season once he is cleared to play, according to sources. Griffin may stay on the sidelines if QB Cody Kessler plays well in multiple games.

Footballguys view: Griffin could have some 2QB/Superflex value when he returns because of his running ability and deep passing, which could also help Terrelle Pryor's late season fantasy prospects.

  Browns | Andrew Hawkins practices Thursday    Thu Nov 24, 01:27 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (finger) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Injury or not, Hawkins is not an option this weekend against the Giant. The quarterback dumpster-fire and a solid Giants pass rush will make this passing offense shaky, aside from Terrelle Pryor who is a borderline WR2/WR3.

  Browns | Cody Kessler sits again    Thu Nov 24, 12:58 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: There's no Browns quarterback worth having in your lineup. A bad offensive line, few serviceable receivers and his own limitations make Kessler not a fantasy starter.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 23, and has returned to practice.

Footballguys view: Just a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like Griffin was not going to play another snap for the Browns. Now, with Cody Kessler concussed for the second time in a month, Griffin may be back under center before the season is out.

  Browns | Robert Griffin to practice, not play    Wed Nov 23, 12:04 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will return to practice this week but has not been cleared for contact or game action, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Footballguys view: With an ineffective Josh McCown and a banged up Cody Kessler, the Browns may be going back to Griffin in the near future. Keep an eye on his practice status, and pick him up in deep leagues if you need some QB help.

  Browns | Cody Kessler may be shut down    Mon Nov 21, 08:21 AM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (concussion) may be shut down for the season after suffering his second concussion in 29 days Sunday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: We should see Josh McCown start on Sunday against the Giants. Do not forget about Robert Griffin III either. He's on track to be cleared to return, and this second concussion for Kessler has opened the door for Griffin to start again for the Browns this year -- something nobody expected a few weeks ago.
