  Browns | Isaiah Crowell wants more work    Wed Sep 20, 12:58 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell reportedly asked head coach Hue Jackson about the lack of carries through two games, and said Jackson told him he wants to get Crowell the ball more often.

Footballguys view: Crowell's snap count went from 52 in Week 1 to only 32 in Week 2, and he only has 27 carries in two games so far this season. He could be the bellcow for the Browns if called upon with a workload that includes 20-plus carries a game. Instead, Crowell is barely being used compared to what some fantasy owners expected before the season started. So far in 2017, the Colts have only allowed an average of 73.0 rushing yards per game. Crowell has a tougher than some think matchup in Week 3, and we can only recommend him as a RB2/flex option for fantasy owners.

  Browns | Corey Coleman officially on IR    Tue Sep 19, 04:07 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Coleman could return later this year after having surgery to repair his hand injury on Monday. He'll be able to practice with the team in six weeks and could return in eight weeks. While Coleman is out, the Browns may end up turning mostly to Rashard Higgins. Activated off the practice squad last week, Higgins had a solid day in Week 2 (seven catches, 95 yards). The 2016 fifth-round pick (Colorado State) can make crazy catches seem routine and seems to be the favorite target while Coleman is hurt and Kenny Britt continues to disappoint.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis primed for bigger role    Tue Sep 19, 01:07 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis 'figures to move in the pecking order' following the Week 2 injury to Corey Coleman, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon, who adds he expects Rashard Higgins to remain the team's slot receiver.

Footballguys view: Like Higgins, Louis was picked in the 2016 NFL draft by the Browns. While Higgins was a fifth-round pick for the Browns, they actually selected Louis in the fourth round. Coming out of Auburn, Louis had a nice size/speed combination at 6'2" 215 pounds. He can make plays after the catch and is developing as a route runner.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins now a starter?    Tue Sep 19, 12:45 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins was listed as a starter on the team' Week 3 unofficial depth chart Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Higgins should stay in the slot for the Browns as that's where he can do the most damage. Ricardo Louis is likely to line up outside opposite Kenny Britt. Watch this young duo for the Browns (Higgins, Louis) to see what kind of impact the 2016 draft picks can do with this opportunity.

  Browns | Corey Coleman likely to be placed on IR    Mon Sep 18, 08:23 PM

  Browns | Corey Coleman will miss multiple months     Mon Sep 18, 02:58 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) is expected to miss six to eight months with his broken hand.

Footballguys view: He is a candidate to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, but he would be able to return this season. Kenny Britt isn't doing much with the Browns, so Rashard Higgins may be the player who emerges as a primary target for the passing game.

  Browns | Corey Coleman will have surgery    Mon Sep 18, 02:38 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) will undergo surgery on his broken hand, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Coleman's right hand is the same on he broke last season that caused him to miss six games. That injury did not require surgery, however. A timetable for his recovery was not disclosed.

  Browns | Corey Coleman has broken hand    Mon Sep 18, 12:19 PM

Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has a broken hand, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This is the same injury that forced Coleman to miss six games in 2016. It's a blow to the Browns passing game, and it looks like Rashard Higgins (just activated off the practice squad last week) could be their leading receiver while Coleman is down.

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman was targeted seven times in Week 2 at Baltimore but he was able to haul in just one ball for nine yards.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins finishes with 95 yards    Sun Sep 17, 07:47 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins finished with seven receptions for 95 yards on 11 targets in Week 2 at Baltimore.

Footballguys view: Corey Coleman has a broken hand and Kenny Britt is in the doghouse. Rashard Higgins might be the #1 receiver going into the matchup with the Colts.

  Browns | Duke Johnson totals seven touches    Sun Sep 17, 07:46 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson rushed four times for 21 yards in Week 2 at Baltimore and he added three receptions for 59 yards on six targets.

Footballguys view: Johnson showed he deserves to be a bigger part of the offense going forward, but it still might not be enough to have fantasy value as the second back and receiving back on a poor team with inexperienced quarterbacks.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell does next to nothing    Sun Sep 17, 07:46 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell ran 10 times for just 37 yards in Week 2 at Baltimore while he did not have any catches on his only target.

Footballguys view: The Browns weren't that competitive today and the Ravens defense is for real against the run. Next week he faces a Colts defense that was surprisingly good against the run so far this year, although the Browns should be in that one until the end.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer has disastrous Week 2    Sun Sep 17, 07:40 PM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 15 of his 31 pass attempts for 182 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions while also losing a fumble in Week 2 at Baltimore.

Footballguys view: Kizer left for a bit with a migraine and was arguably outplayed by backup Kevin Hogan. If Kizer does start against the Colts next week. he'll be a good cheap DFS play and worth a look in 2QB and superflex leagues.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer out of the game    Sun Sep 17, 01:57 PM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer (migraine) left the team's Week 2 game early because of a migraine and is considered questionable to return. QB Kevin Hogan has taken over as the starting quarterback.

Footballguys view: Kizer was effective at times, but also turned the ball over twice. Hogan has been moving the offense could create a quarterback controversy for the game at Indianapolis next week.

  Browns | Week 2 Inactives    Sun Sep 17, 11:39 AM

The Cleveland Browns have declared QB Cody Kessler, WR Kasen Williams, C Marcus Martin, DE Myles Garrett, WR Reggie Davis, DL T.Y. McGill, OT Zach Banner inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Williams barely was out of bounds on a deep ball from DeShone Kizer last week, but that wasn't enough to get him active this week. Recently recalled from the practice squad, Rashard Higgins is up in place of him.

  Browns | Tyrone Holmes let go    Sat Sep 16, 01:54 PM

Cleveland Browns DL Tyrone Holmes was waived Saturday, Sept. 16. To fill his spot on the roster, WR Rashard Higgins was promoted from the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Higgins is a dynasty prospect we've got some interest in. A fifth-round pick out of Colorado State in 2016, 'Hollywood' Higgins has a tiny bit of A.J. Green (Bengals) to his game. He can make crazy catches seem routine and plucks the ball out of the air naturally with arms extended away from his body. Let's see if Higgins can do anything with his opportunity.

  Browns | Kevin Hogan will remain No. 2 QB    Fri Sep 15, 08:32 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Kevin Hogan will serve as the primary backup quarterback again Week 2, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Footballguys view: Hogan would go into the game if anything happened to rookie starter DeShone Kizer. That leaves Cody Kessler as the third-string quarterback for the Browns.

  Browns | Duke Johnson to receive carries    Fri Sep 15, 07:57 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will receive some carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson. Johnson caught two passes in Week 1 but did not have any carries.

Footballguys view: Johnson lined up as a slot receiver for the Browns against the Steelers in Week 1. Browns head coach Hue Jackson did emphasize during the week that Johnson is a running back and will be part of the rushing attack in certain game plans. We've got him as a RB4/deep flex option against a tough Ravens defense in Week 2.

  Browns | Kenny Britt's playing time to stay the same    Fri Sep 15, 12:48 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt will get his 'normal allotment' of plays in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to head coach Hue Jackson, who refused to commit to Britt after a critical third-down drop in the second half of the team's Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: It's still hard to trust Britt after his listless performances in preseason and Week 1. Corey Coleman is clearly the #1 here and Britt might be droppable soon.

  Browns | Kenny Britt fully practices    Thu Sep 14, 03:51 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: Britt's starting spot with the Browns is not guaranteed just one week into the season. Even if he starts, we can't recommend Britt as anything more than a WR6 in Week 2 against the Ravens.

  Browns | Duke Johnson logs full practice again    Thu Sep 14, 03:45 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (chest) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: Against a tough Ravens defense, Johnson should continue to get plenty of work as a receiver out of the backfield (or the slot) for the Browns. He's a RB4 or 'what the heck' flex for fantasy owners in Week 2.

  Browns | Duke Johnson full go    Wed Sep 13, 03:31 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (chest) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: Johnson has a tough matchup against the Ravens this week. He plays running back but lined up as a slot receiver for the Browns in Week 1 against the Steelers. With his pass-catching role, Johnson is a RB4/flex option for fantasy players in PPR leagues.
