  Browns | Week 3 Inactives    Sun Sep 25, 11:46 AM

The Cleveland Browns have declared C Cameron Erving, DL Carl Nassib, WR Corey Coleman, SS Ibraheim Campbell, CB Joe Haden, QB Josh McCown, OT Shon Coleman inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Haden being out will help the case of Ryan Tannehill and DeVante Parker in your starting lineup today. Coleman will be out for 4-6 weeks, but the more positive news about Josh McCown makes him worth a stash again in deeper leagues.

  Browns | Josh McCown to miss several weeks    Sun Sep 25, 10:10 AM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) is expected to need two to four weeks to recover from a broken collarbone in his non-throwing shoulder. He wanted to harness the left shoulder and continue playing but the team denied his request.

Footballguys view: The doomsday predictions for the Browns offense might have been premature if this report is correct. Josh Gordon's value would be restored if McCown can play in a few weeks, and Corey Coleman, Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson, and Gary Barnidge will be viable plays if McCown returns to the lineup.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell expected to remain lead back    Sat Sep 24, 12:47 PM

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.

Footballguys view: We're not invested in the Cleveland offense -- especially with rookie QB Cody Kessler under center. Crowell is more of a RB3, and Johnson is more of a low-end flex play going forward.

  Browns | Josh McCown out until November?    Fri Sep 23, 01:05 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) suffered a non-displaced broken clavicle in a Week 2 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and is expected to miss two months. Rookie third-round pick Cody Kessler will start in the interim, while newly signed Charlie Whitehurst will serve as his backup.

Footballguys view: McCown could have streamer value once he returns, but even in 2QB/Superflex leagues it might be hard to justify holding him through the extended absence. The Browns offense might be in Rams territory with Kessler at the helm.

Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden (groin) was out of practice Friday, Sept. 23, due to a groin injury.

  Browns | Andrew Hawkins to start    Thu Sep 22, 02:35 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Andrew Hawkins will take WR Corey Coleman's (hand) spot in the starting lineup, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Footballguys view: With Commander Cody Kessler throwing the ball, we're not optimistic this will make for a good play. We'd avoid this passing offense this week and most weeks unless we see Kessler do something fantastic like not get hurt, given the cursed nature of the Browns quarterback position.

  Browns | Corey Coleman out 4-6 weeks    Thu Sep 22, 09:16 AM

Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) will miss four to six weeks, but he won't require surgery on his broken hand.

Footballguys view: How tough is it to be a Browns fan? The only team with more critical injuries is the Vikings. Push up Terrelle Pryor from "almost useless" to WR5, but there's no real reason to start anyone here with rookie Cody Kessler in charge.

  Browns | Corey Coleman likely out weeks    Thu Sep 22, 08:31 AM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) will visit a specialist to determine how long he'll miss due to his broken hand, but the best-case scenario is a few weeks.

Footballguys view: Just in time for Josh Gordon to come back (in another two games). Cleveland has little to offer in the passing game and we would avoid anyone here, unless you are interested in Isaiah Crowell in the backfield. That said, Crowell is no more than an RB3 or RB4, against a tough Miami front that knows he will be running the ball a lot.

  Browns | Warrant for Josh Gordon rescinded    Thu Sep 22, 01:40 AM

An arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was withdrawn after the receiver complied with a year-old court order to take a DNA test in a paternity suit. In a statement, Gordon's attorneys said he was unaware until noon Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he had been requested to take the test.

Footballguys view: Looks like Gordon is going to avoid trouble here. He wasn't in much if any danger of getting further discipline from the league in this case.

  Browns | Corey Coleman breaks hand    Wed Sep 21, 06:56 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) suffered a broken hand during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, according to a source. It is not known how long Coleman will be sidelined.

Footballguys view: Early reports indicate that Coleman could be out for quite some time. It's a shame given the fact that Coleman had such a great start to his rookie season. The Browns offense is already without QB Josh McCown, and now this injury takes a weapon away from rookie starting QB Cody Kessler.

  Browns | Josh Gordon on track for Week 5    Wed Sep 21, 02:27 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is still on track to return for the team's Week 5 game even though a warrant has been issued for his arrest stemming from a paternity case, according to an NFL spokesperson.

Footballguys view: Gordon was not suspended for this new matter. We don't like to hear about him getting into more trouble, but the issue should be solved in court. Fantasy owners are going to get Gordon back, but the QB situation -- and most of the offense -- is a bit of a mess. When he's back, trusting him as a flex early might be the best bet...if you want to play him.

  Browns | Josh McCown won't be placed on IR    Mon Sep 19, 10:03 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) will not be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, so the team expects him to return at some point this season.

Footballguys view: Without McCown, the Browns are turning to their third-round pick Cody Kessler. The former USC star is good at controlling a game from the pocket with short-to-intermediate throws. However, he struggles mightily when under duress.

  Browns | Charlie Whitehurst heading to Cleveland    Mon Sep 19, 10:03 PM

Free-agent QB Charlie Whitehurst (Colts) will sign with the Cleveland Browns, his agents said Monday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: A hamstring injury ended his season last year with the Colts, but Whitehurst is a seasoned veteran who may not take that much time to get up to speed. He should serve as a backup to rookie Cody Kessler for the Browns.

  Browns | Cleveland on fifth QB in five games    Mon Sep 19, 08:31 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will be the fifth starting quarterback in as many games for the Browns. Going back to the last two weeks of last season, the Browns have started former QBs Johnny Manziel and Austin Davis and QBs Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Josh McCown (shoulder) and now Kessler. Cleveland is the second team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to start five different quarterbacks in five straight games, according to Elias.

Footballguys view: Wow....just wow. Hey, at least you have LeBron and the Cavs!

  Browns | Cody Kessler will draw Week 3 start    Mon Sep 19, 02:29 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will start Week 3 versus the Miami Dolphins per league sources, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: If you're streaming a defense -- or want to find a non-chalky play in DFS -- then everyone under the sun should consider the Dolphins defense. The Browns are playing on the road, and Kessler is not known as a player who stands out under duress. If the pocket is clean, Kessler can operate efficiently on short-to-intermediate passes.

  Browns | Fear of serious injury for Josh McCown    Sun Sep 18, 07:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, and the team is bracing themselves for bad news on McCown's shoulder. He will be re-evaluated Monday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Rookie Cody Kessler could start against the Dolphins in a scenario no one envisioned two weeks ago. The Dolphins defense is looking like the top streamer play of Week 3.

  Browns | Gary Barnidge more involved    Sun Sep 18, 06:00 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge caught four passes for 37 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Barnidge's value didn't exactly spike with the return of Josh McCown but his outlook is much better against the Miami defense that let Martellus Bennett run free today. He's still as precarious as McCown's health in our lineups next week.

  Browns | Corey Coleman play well in Week 2    Sun Sep 18, 05:56 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman caught five passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Coleman had a breakout game, but if Josh McCown can't stay healthy, we will have trouble trusting him at any point this season. He's clearly more prominent in McCown's eyes than Terrelle Pryor, but Josh Gordon is coming back soon. Despite the huge game, Coleman's outlook has some blemishes.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell rushes for 133 yards    Sun Sep 18, 05:52 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Crowell might have had his finest moment if Josh McCown can't stay healthy. He had an 85-yard touchdown run with a huge hole that showed his power and strength, and didn't even average three yards a carry on the rest of his attempts. He'll be a tough play against the Dolphins next week.

  Browns | Josh McCown posts solid numbers    Sun Sep 18, 05:43 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) went 20-for-33 for 260 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.

Footballguys view: McCown twice left the game to get his shoulder checked out. He is courageous but took a ton of hits. It's only a matter of time before we see Cody Kessler at quarterback for the Browns, which would torpedo the value of the entire Browns offense. Next week McCown gets a good matchup against Miami, but he is a weekly in-game injury risk.

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 2 and is considered questionable to return.

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge faces the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2, and in two games against Baltimore last season, he caught a combined 15 passes for 230 yards and a touchdown. QB Josh McCown started both games.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who have TE Gary Barnidge should be excited now that McCown is in at QB. The two have a strong connection, and we should see that more than a few times on Sunday. We like Barnidge as a high-end TE1 in Week 2.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell to be busy in Week 2?    Fri Sep 16, 09:24 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: Crowell and the Browns still have to stay in the game against the tough Ravens run defense to get him jump started. At least Josh McCown should be more effective than Robert Griffin III was last week. Crowell is stilla flex play at best.
