From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Brian Hoyer's ineptitude is killing Cameron's value after Hoyer made him look like a budding star last year. Cameron's weekly ceiling is high as a rare big play tight end, but his downside is making him more of a Vernon Davis than a Julius Thomas. Oakland is not a tough Week 8 matchup, but our confidence in all things Browns is shaken right now.

Week 8: vs Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Brian Hoyer had an awful game against the soft Jaguars' D last week - 16/41 for 215 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -18 yards. Though Andrew Hawkins did rebound from his awful 0-fer game of two weeks ago (nine targets for 5/112/0 receiving), the lack of passing scores depressed his upside (and everyone else on the Browns' team). Jordan Cameron had six targets during the game but converted just 1/5/0. The Cleveland offense crashed and burned in Jacksonville, friends. With Johnny Manziel waiting in the wings, if Hoyer struggles again against the bottom-of-the-barrel Raiders (after giving the bottom-of-the-barrel Jaguars their first win of the season) it may be time for the anticipated debut of Manziel. The Browns' offense is in a funk entering Week 8, friends. Speaking of the bottom-of-the-barrel, the Raiders' already-shaky pass D (ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 229.5 net yards allowed per game, but with 11 passing scores given up vs. just three interceptions (tied-24th in the NFL) and a mere six sacks (31st) generated) just lost their starting S Usama Young to ACL and MCL tears in a knee, leaving backup Brandion Ross to get a first start in this game. Uh oh, Raiders' fans. Carson Palmer threw 22/31 for 242 net yards, two TDs and one pick at the Black Hole last week (one sack taken for -11 yards); two weeks back Philip Rivers threw 22/34 for 307 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions, with one sack taken for -6 yards. Hoyer has an opportunity to bounce back at home against the ailing Raiders - we'll see if he can capitalize on the situation.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs TEN (7 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)

Cameron possesses oodles of talent; however, he does not get the ball where he dominates the redzone. Cameron received only one redzone look on Sunday, which is baffling considering the Browns spent a lot of time there on Sunday. Cameron made a big-boy catch late in the game, where he bodied Jason McCourty and came down with a first down on the sideline. Cameron should be getting those looks on high-leverage downs, but it just is not happening.

2014 Week 6 vs PIT (5 / 3 / 102 / 1 rec)

After a quiet performance in the first quarter of the season, Jordan Cameron busted out in a big way on Sunday. Cameron put up almost five points per target and was very close to scoring two touchdowns. On Cameron's first long catch, Brian Hoyer rolled out to the near sideline, and found Cameron wide open on the opposite side of the field. If Hoyer leads Cameron instead of throwing directly at him, it is an east six points for Cameron. Cameron's second touchdown was a perfectly placed ball by Hoyer to Cameron where Cameron simply ran past Cortez Allen on a post, and flashed his hands late so Allen could not knock the pass down. Cameron has yet to be redzone factor for the Browns because the Browns have been pounding the rock inside the ten. With Alex Mack out for the year with a broken fibula, the Browns may have less success running the ball inside the goal line. It is certainly a situation to monitor.

2014 Week 7 vs JAX (6 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Cameron made a number of impressive plays on poorly thrown passes from Brian Hoyer last week against the Steelers. Against the Jaguars he had just one catch, but he should have had a touchdown late in the second quarter. Hoyer wildly overthrew him when he was wide open in the end zone. Cameron's only reception of the game came late in the fourth quarter when the game had already been decided.

Our View: Cameron beat Lawrence Timmons deep in Week 1, and he's up to tricks again against the hapless Steelers defense. He is back to strong TE1 status with a nice matchup against the Jaguars up next week.
