Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (groin) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Beckham appears to be limited by this issue in games lately and hasn't been a playmaker. If you are considering benching him for a hotter and more consistent fantasy receiver in the playoffs, you're not crazy.

  Browns | Odell Beckham limited to 29 yards    Sun Dec 1, 04:34 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. ended up with three receptions for 29 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Beckham got banged up at the end of the first half and was a non-factor. He's tough to bench in the fantasy playoffs against the Bengals next week, but his numbers to date don't make him a lineup lock.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry registered six receptions for a team-high 76 yards on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt finds the end zone    Sun Dec 1, 04:24 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt had seven runs for 46 yards in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while adding five receptions for 19 yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Hunt was the only hit for the Browns offense for fantasy this week. He still looks as good as he did in Kansas City and should be in lineups as an RB2/Flex next week against Cincinnati, especially in PPR leagues.

  Browns | Nick Chubb totals 79 scrimmage yards    Sun Dec 1, 04:22 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 16 times for 58 yards in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added a 21-yard catch.

Footballguys view: Chubb was stonewalled by the Steelers defense in a predictable offensive approach by Cleveland. He'll still be a solid play against Cincinnati next week.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield throws for 196 yards    Sun Dec 1, 04:18 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (thumb, hand) completed 18-of-32 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and one interception with a lost fumble in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He suffered an apparent right thumb or hand injury at the end of the first half and returned after halftime wearing a glove on his throwing hand.

Footballguys view: Mayfield and Browns offense was thwarted by halftime adjustments made by Mike Tomlin to the defense. He'll face a Bengals defense that came alive against the Jets today and is only a low-end QB2/Superflex.

Footballguys view: Either way, this will be a weak spot for the Steelers to attack with their pass rush. The Steelers defense is still a good play this week.

  Browns | David Njoku's Week 13 status unknown    Mon Nov 25, 03:00 PM

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) is not guaranteed to return to action in Week 13 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Njoku has been designated to return already but he has yet to return to the field. When he does, Njoku could be another shot in the arm for an offense that seems to have found some swagger (again) late in the season. Stash Njoku on your bench if you have the roster space. He could perform like a TE1 in the fantasy playoffs.

  Browns | Odell Beckham Jr. find end zone again    Sun Nov 24, 06:43 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. finished with six receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Beckham scored as everyone got right against the Dolphins. He should stay in lineups against the Steelers defense he almost scored against in Week 11.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt gets into the end zone    Sun Nov 24, 06:36 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed eight times for 37 yards and a score against the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 and he added two catches for nine yards.

Footballguys view: Hunt was able to join the touchdown parade against the Dolphins and made up for an easy winning game script that did not include a lot of targets for him. He'll still be a fine PPR RB2 against the Steelers next week.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 21 times for 106 yards with a touchdown in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins and he added three receptions for a season-high 58 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Chubb finally got some touchdown regression and also added a big play as a receiver. Next he'll face a tough Steelers front that Joe Mixon had some success against this week.

  Browns | Solid afternoon for Baker Mayfield    Sun Nov 24, 06:06 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 24-of-34 passes for 327 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Everyone's offense gets well against Miami. Philadelphia and Carson Wentz test that theory next week. Mayfield gets a tough Steelers defense next week on the road, but his value is revived for late season games against Cincinnati and Arizona in Weeks 14 and 15.
