  Browns | Duke Johnson a slot receiver now?    Sun Jul 23, 01:34 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson is the leading candidate to replace Andrew Hawkins as the team's top slot receiver and has a good chance to land the job, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

  Browns | Taylor McNamara could grab spot    Sat Jul 22, 12:03 AM

Cleveland Browns TE Taylor McNamara made several nice catches during spring practices, according to Andrew Gribble of ClevelandBrowns.com, and Gribble believes McNamara could grab a spot on the 53-man roster with a strong preseason.

Footballguys view: First-round pick David Njoku and 2016 fourth-round athlete Seth Devalve will be the top two tight ends after Gary Barnidge was released, but there is probably at least one spot at the position up for grabs in training camp, and it sounds like McNamara is situating himself to claim it.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell to reach 1,300 yards?    Thu Jul 13, 10:46 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell is capable of a 1,300-yard season in 2017, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, because of upgrades to the offensive line and an improved defense that should keep games closer.

Footballguys view: We could see Crowell breaking 1,000 yards rushing in a season for the first time in his career. He almost did it last year, and the improvements up front on the O-Line should only help him perform better. Crowell is RB14 (3.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Browns | Seth DeValve impressive during spring    Wed Jul 12, 12:13 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Seth DeValve 'jumped out' in spring practices as one of the most improved players from 2016, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Princeton in 2016, DeValve is a converted wide receiver who can create mismatches. He'll need to run better routes if he wants to play up to his potential as a pro. The Browns did select TE David Njoku (Miami) in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. The rookie is the more exciting of the two prospects, but it sometimes takes a year or two for TEs to make an impact at the pro level.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer could play early    Wed Jul 12, 11:18 AM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer could play early in the season as beat writer, Mary Kay Cabot, believes head coach Hue Jackson wants to throw Kizer into the fire and let him learn on the fly. With an improved defense and running game, Jackson could devise gameplans to take some of the pressure off Kizer early on. Kizer will have to perform in the preseason to win the job.

Footballguys view: The Browns need to see what they have in Kizer, so it makes sense they could play him sooner rather than later. Cody Kessler is his primary competition for the job in 2017, and he's more of a game manager with limited upside. Kizer has a big arm and is athletic...think of a poor man's version of Daunte Culpepper. The rookie has complete confidence in his arm but 'bird dogs' and stares down receivers too often while holding onto the ball too long. He'll need to improve that if he wants to make it in the NFL.

  Browns | Cody Kessler could be placeholder    Wed Jul 12, 10:53 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler could begin the season as the starter, but he doesn't fit the mold head coach Hue Jackson likes as a starting quarterback, according to beat writer Mary Kat Cabot. Jackson likes a tall, mobile quarterback with a big arm and quick decision-making skills. Kessler falls below Jackson's 6-foot-2 threshold and doesn't have the deep-ball skills Jackson covets.

Footballguys view: That's pretty much what Kessler is -- a bridge quarterback to the next guy. That guy could be rookie DeShone Kizer, their second-round pick out of Notre Dame this year. While Kessler is safe with the football on underneath routes, Kizer has the big arm and aggressive mindset as a passer. We could see a scenario where Kessler begins the season as the starter but Kizer takes over at some point.

  Browns | Cleveland QB battle a two-man race?    Tue Jul 11, 02:46 PM

Cleveland Browns QBs Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer are in an apparent two-man race for the starting quarterback position, according to Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Kessler and Kizer split first-team repetitions throughout minicamp, with QB Brock Osweiler working with the second team. Furthermore, Cabot expects head coach Hue Jackson to name a starter shortly after the preseason begins.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Kessler could handle the starting job for the Browns, but he's not an exciting option or a playmaker at the position. Instead, he's more of a game manager who can work the field on short/underneath routes. Kizer could be the quarterback of the future if he develops further as a passer. The rookie from Notre Dame is big, strong and athletic. However, he does 'bird dog' his throws and stares down his targets. Plus, he struggles to make quick decisions when forced off his first read. We'll see if he's improved during training camp and the preseason.

  Browns | Jabrill Peppers remains unsigned    Mon Jul 10, 09:06 AM

Cleveland Browns S Jabrill Peppers remains unsigned Monday, July 10, in part, due to the amount of guaranteed money offered, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Rookie contracts are slotted these days, so a holdout for Peppers is unlikely. There are things like guaranteed money and offset language that can hold things up, and that seems to be the case here. Most picks around Peppers (25th overall) are already signed, but the pick right in front of him -- no24 Gareon Conley (Raiders) has yet to get his contract signed.

  Browns | Shon Coleman could start at tackle    Sun Jul 9, 09:06 AM

Cleveland Browns OT Shon Coleman is expected to have a slight edge over OT Cameron Erving for the team's starting right tackle position entering training camp, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe.

Footballguys view: Erving has been a bust after going in the first round in 2015. He was supposed to replace Alex Mack at center, and eventually moved to guard before getting benched. The team signed JC Tretter to play center in the offseason and Erving moved back to right tackle to end the season last year, so he's now locked back into right tackle, which he indicated was a better position for him during the offseason. The Browns have one of the best lines in the league, with only right tackle a question mark, but one Erving or Coleman could solve.

  Browns | Joe Schobert could see fewer snaps    Sun Jul 9, 08:59 AM

Cleveland Browns LB Joe Schobert is likely to see reduced snaps in 2017, especially if the team uses a nickel defense scheme most of the time. LBs Christian Kirksey and Jamie Collins are expected to start, meaning Schobert's biggest impact could come on special teams, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe.

Footballguys view: The Browns will be switching to a 4-3 this year, but could spend more time with two linebackers on the field than they will with three. Kirksey and Collins are one of the best duos in the league, and the strength of the defense. Schobert had a good rookie year, but he still won't be a core defensive player this year.

  Browns | David Njoku impressing    Sat Jul 8, 09:48 PM

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught everything thrown his way during OTAs, and QB DeShone Kizer said Njoku is an athletic 'freak' and an easy target to throw to.

Footballguys view: Njoku is younger than OJ Howard and has a higher ceiling. He's reminiscent of Vernon Davis after the catch and could emerge as the #1 target for the Browns in the middle of the field right away. Rookie tight ends rarely make an impact in fantasy leagues, but Njoku's chemistry with fellow rookie DeShone Kizer is something to watch in dynasty leagues.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis continues to draw praise    Sat Jul 8, 11:49 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis has 'really helped himself' and 'is a talented young man,' according to senior offensive assistant Al Saunders.

Footballguys view: The Browns wide receiver group is unsettled after Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman, so an opportunity is there for Louis and other youngsters like Jordan Payton and Rashard Higgins. This isn't a pass offense that can support three fantasy relevant wideouts, but Louis's top-end measureables and possible separation from his fellow 2016 third-day picks merits attention in deep dynasty leagues.

  Browns | Myles Garrett doing well    Fri Jul 7, 04:08 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett (foot) said his injured foot is doing fine. He likely will be limited during the early part of training camp because of the injury.

Footballguys view: Garrett's foot injury was not just a minor nick if it will still be limiting him early in camp. It could come up again during the season and affects his value in IDP redraft leagues. We'll be watching this closely.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer noticeably improved in spring    Sun Jul 2, 01:28 PM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer made the 'biggest leap' of all the team's quarterbacks during off-season practices, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. Kizer has a better deep ball and his accuracy and touch have improved under head coach Hue Jackson and quarterbacks coach David Lee, according to Cabot.

Footballguys view: Kizer is the quarterback of the future, and the Browns are trying to give him the Dak Prescott treatment. The Browns have built a strong offensive line in front of Kizer, and now it's up to him to see if he can beat out Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler for the starting job. Kizer is big, mobile and has a strong arm -- think of him like a poor man's version of Daunte Culpepper. We'll see if the Notre Dame rookie can get his roll on in training camp.

  Browns | Corey Coleman's WRs coach talks hamstring    Thu Jun 29, 04:16 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hamstring) is currently recovering from a strained hamstring -- a problem that has plagued him back to his collegiate days at Baylor. Browns wide receivers coach Al Saunders said he is disappointed for Coleman since he cannot continue his on-field growth, but Saunders added he expects Coleman to return for training camp July 26, if he can improve the strength of the hamstring.

Footballguys view: Coleman had injury troubles in his first year, and this particular one has been a long-standing issue. Every time he misses an OTA, camp day or anything else he is stymieing his development. Coleman has the ability but that won't make a difference if he can't stay on the field and off the trainer's table. The uncertainty at quarterback doesn't help his value either. In early drafts he is currently the 41st receiver off the boards, with an overall ADP of 106.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer not ready to start...yet    Tue Jun 27, 08:13 PM

Pat McManamon, from ESPN.com, reports when Cleveland Browns minicamp ended, the Browns were clear that rookie QB DeShone Kizer was not ready to start a game. Whether he is by the season opener remains to be seen.

Footballguys view: Kizer is competing with Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler for the starting job. Even if he doesn't win the job at the beginning of the season, we could see Kizer taking over at some point during the year. The rookie has a big arm and is mobile enough to keep plays alive with his feet. He needs to speed up his processor and make quicker decisions as a passer if he's going to be an effective pro.

  Browns | Cameron Erving looking forward    Mon Jun 26, 07:23 PM

  Browns | DeShone Kizer could start Week 1    Sun Jun 25, 04:06 PM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer has a chance to be the Week 1 starter if he can perform well during training camp practices and preseason games, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: That's not outlandish to predict at this point of the year. Kizer was drafted in the second round with the idea that he could potential develop into a starting quarterback. He's mobile and has a big arm, but Kizer had plenty of work to do when it comes to decision making and accuracy. The Browns have revamped their offensive line, they have a strong rushing attack and there are plenty of options to throw to. Kizer is competing with Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler (for now) for the starting job.

  Browns | Jabrill Peppers not signed yet    Sun Jun 25, 04:05 PM

Cleveland Browns first-round draft choice S Jabrill Peppers has not signed his contract at this point, and the offset language probably is the main reason for the lack of a deal, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: Ah, the dreaded 'offset' language that can cause havoc this time of year with first-round picks. Peppers was the 25th pick in the first round, and they guy right in front of him (Raiders CB Gareon Conley) has not signed his contract either. There is a small handful of first-round picks that remain unsigned here at the end of June. We don't anticipate problems with any of them as training camp is about a month away.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer closing the gap    Tue Jun 20, 11:41 AM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer has narrowed the gap between him and QB Cody Kessler for the starting job. Kizer essentially split the first-team repetitions with Kessler during minicamp. The two are expected to battle for the starting job in training camp.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Notre Dame is picking things up quickly. The Browns don't do everything right, but we love how they've emphasized building from the offensive line out. That O-Line is going to make things better for the quarterback -- no matter who the starter is. Kizer is seen as the QB of the future, and he should get on the field as the starter even if he begins the 2017 season as a backup behind Kessler.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis could be No. 3 WR    Sun Jun 18, 04:24 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis appears to be one of the leading candidates for the No. 3 receiver job this season because of his versatility and run after the catch ability, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe.

Footballguys view: There has recently been a flood of positive stories about Louis coming out of Browns camp. His main competition for the no3 spot could be Rashard Higgins or Jordan Payton. The Browns QB situation is a hot mess, but they'll be supported by a strong offensive line and a solid rushing attack. Louis likely has little fantasy value in redraft leagues even if he's the no3 WR for the Browns, but dynasty owners should be monitoring his progress through training camp.

  Browns | Corey Coleman to be eased back    Sun Jun 18, 02:27 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (shoulder, hamstring) hurt his shoulder and hamstring on an awkward fall in OTAs, and the team is expected to 'err on the side of caution' early in training camp.

Footballguys view: That's a wise move for a player who should be the Browns top receiver. With Terrelle Pryor (Washington) gone in free agency, we should see Coleman take a step forward in 2017. He was limited by injuries as a rookie last year, but if healthy we could see him catching 65 or so passes...regardless of the murky quarterback situation.

  Browns | Expectations high for Duke Johnson    Sat Jun 17, 10:10 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson is one of the 'better playmakers' for the offense and 'big things' are expected from him this season, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

Footballguys view: That's great and all, but they've been high for Johnson before and he's not played up to his potential. With Isaiah Crowell being used more in the passing game (40 catches last year), it limits the value for Johnson.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell just entering his prime    Sat Jun 17, 09:44 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has only 'scratched the surface' of his potential, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

Footballguys view: The quarterback situation in Cleveland clouds what could be a RB1 in Crowell. This could be the first 1,000 yard season of his career, and Crowell could easily snag 40 or more catches in 2017. Scoop up Crowell at RB14 (3.05) in 12-team PPR leagues while you can.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis ready to step up?    Thu Jun 15, 09:11 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis is more confident and comfortable in the offense this year, according to ESPN.com's Pat McManamon, and McManamon believes Cleveland's lack of depth at the receiver position could lead to Louis playing an important role.

Footballguys view: It's a steady and interesting drumbeat that has been there this offseason. Louis is someone that beat writers are pegging as an improved player. A fourth-round pick in 2016, Louis had a 5-for-65 stat line against the Titans in Week 6 last year and then it was all downhill for him as he barely saw the field.

Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett (foot) remains out of practice Thursday, June 15, as his left foot injury is still being evaluated. The team doesn't think it's a Lisfranc injury.

Footballguys view: A bit of an ignominious start for this year's first overall pick, but a very Cleveland Browns outcome. The club is happy he was able to walk off the field Wednesday after he hurt his foot during a simulated sack of Brock Osweiler. He was down for a moment and needed to be helped up by a trainer and coach Hue Jackson. The Browns are off now until the start of training camp, so we won't know what shape Garrett is in any time soon.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was the third quarterback in the rotation during drills Tuesday, June 13, but worked with the first-team offense during his snaps. Kizer has displayed excellent physical skills and is picking up the offense quickly.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation. Kizer, the rookie from Notre Dame, is considered a potential quarterback of the future...but the future may be now with Cleveland. They don't have much in front of him on the depth chart in either Cody Kessler or Brock Osweiler. It wouldn't be a total shock to see Kizer start at some point this year.

Kessler has been followed by QBs Brock Osweiler, DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan during offseason workouts.
