  Browns | Nick Chubb to see more receptions?    Wed Aug 21, 11:52 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is expected to see more work catching the football in 2019. 'I think he's going to be special like he was last year,' running backs coach Stump Mitchell said Wednesday, Aug. 21. 'He'll be used a little more in the passing game than he was last year. Nick just continues to improve on the skillset that he has, and I think he has a fantastic skillset.'

Footballguys view: Chubb can easily be a top four running back before Kareem Hunt returns from an eight game suspension in Week 10 against Buffalo. He's worth a pick in the second half of the first round.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins in line to be WR3    Thu Aug 15, 02:23 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins is the leading candidate to be the team's third wide receiver during WR Antonio Callaway's suspension, according to Scott Petrak of BrownsZone.com.

Footballguys view: Higgins has great chemistry with Baker Mayfield and he'll get favorable matchups while defense are worried more about Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. He's worth a late round flier in deep leagues.

  Browns | Odell Beckham limited Wednesday    Wed Aug 14, 07:57 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (undisclosed) did not participate in team drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: Beckham has a hip injury, but it shouldn't be a problem going into the season. It could delay the chemistry between him and Baker Mayfield from fully developing, but Beckham is still getting a major upgrade at quarterback in any event. Rashard Higgins and Jarvis Landry could start hot vs. the Titans and Jets if Beckham starts slow.

  Browns | Antonio Callaway handed four-game ban    Fri Aug 9, 02:18 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season Friday, Aug. 9, for violating the league's policy on substances of abuse.

Footballguys view: Callaway drops off of the redraft radar now. He was already reportedly out of shape to begin camp. The valuable DeSean Jackson role in Todd Monken's offense was his for the taking, but now Rashard Higgins is the Browns receiver to target late. Callaway could be a mid season waiver wire pickup if he gets it together, but he could also not make the team.

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson was acquired by the Houston Texans Thursday, Aug. 8, in exchange for a conditional fourth-round draft pick that can become a third-round pick in 2020.

Footballguys view: This news backs up the idea that Cleveland likes Dontrell Hilliard as their receiving back, and he will be the primary backup until Kareem Hunt returns from an eight-game suspension, although the Browns could look to waivers after final cuts to improve their depth chart at the position.
