2016 Week 17 vs PIT (9 / 5 / 40 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Coleman was quiet for most of the afternoon before coming to life in overtime. He made three of his catches in overtime and also drew two penalties on the Pittsburgh defense, putting the Browns in great position to score. Coleman's first touch of the game came on an end around in the first quarter. He took the rush for a nine-yard gain. He made a great leaping, reaching catch in overtime for an 11-yard gain. He followed that up by drawing a holding penalty on the defense for an automatic first down on 3rd-and-2. He made one catch in the red zone in overtime and drew a facemask penalty at the end of the play to put the Browns on Pittsburgh's two-yard line.
2016 Week 16 vs SD (5 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Coleman had a slow game. The opportunity was there for more production, it just didn't come to fruition. The rookie receiver saw two deep shots but was unable to connect with Robert Griffin on either. The first deep shot came in the first quarter, but Coleman was tripped by a San Diego defender. No flag was thrown and the play looked promising had Coleman stayed on his feet. He saw another deep pass near the pylon in the second quarter. He was able to make the catch, but his momentum carried him out of bounds before he could get his feet down. In the fourth quarter he dropped a catchable ball before rebounding to make a big grab on third down to extend a drive.
2016 Week 15 vs BUF (4 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Coleman saw his first target on the Browns' second drive of the game. It came on a short screen pass to the left and went for eight yards. Coleman showed some nice athleticism on his second catch, making a defensive back miss before turning upfield for an 11-yard gain. It appeared he was grabbed by the facemask on the tackle and initially a flag was thrown on the play, but the referees decided he was grabbed by the shoulders, not the facemask. Coleman disagreed with the call. Coleman saw a deep shot on a Hail Mary at the end of the first half but he was double covered and unable to make the play. He was hardly heard from in the second half of the game.
2016 Week 14 vs CIN (11 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Coleman had quarterback Robert Griffin's eye in this game as he was targeted a team-high 11 times. Unfortunately, many of those targets were uncatchable as Griffin was forcing the ball in Coleman's direction whether he was open or not. Coleman had two deep shots come his way on the team's first three drives. He was closely covered on both of them and was unable to reel either in. Coleman actually did a good job to prevent an interception on one of the attempts. His first catch came on a screen to the left in the third quarter. His second catch was a productive one as it went for 15 yards, plus he picked up a penalty on the defender, who brought him down with a horse collar tackle. That put Cleveland on Cincinnati's two yard line and led to them eventually scoring their only touchdown of the game. Coleman's final catch came on the last drive of the game.
2016 Week 12 vs NYG (7 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
Coleman got a chance to show some of his explosiveness in this game. His first catch came on a bubble screen to the left. He got a great block from Joe Thomas around the line of scrimmage to turn the screen into a 13-yard gain. Coleman scored Cleveland's lone touchdown of the game on a beautiful route. He cut toward the middle of the field before making an out cut toward the left side of the end zone. Defender Janoris Jenkins bit hard on the cut toward the middle of the field, got spun around, and was unable to recover. Coleman was wide open for the 21-yard score. Watching the play certainly gave a glimpse of what Coleman is capable of doing with his quickness and explosiveness on the football field.
2016 Week 11 vs PIT (12 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Coleman led the Browns in targets on the afternoon, although many of the targets were uncatchable. He didn't help his cause by committing two drops in the game. His first drop was especially tough as the ball hit him right in the chest. Cody Kessler's lone interception on the day came on an underthrown pass meant for Coleman near the end zone. The rookie did show his toughness on a fourth quarter catch as he took a huge hit from Mike Mitchell but was able to hold onto the ball.
2016 Week 10 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Coleman made two of his three catches on consecutive plays on the Browns' first drive. It appeared he was on his way to a big game, but he made just one catch the rest of the game. Coleman had a chance to add another catch to his line in the second quarter, but he dropped a ball on a slant route. He was closely covered and the pass was slightly behind him. Coleman wanted pass interference on the play but didn't get it. He did, however, draw a pass interference call later in the quarter as a defender jumped on his back as he was awaiting a pass about 15 yards downfield. The play set up the Browns' only score of the game a few plays later.
2016 Week 9 vs DAL (7 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Coleman played well in his first game back from a broken hand which held him out since Week 2. He ran some really good routes, including one on his first catch where he stopped on a dime to turn around for the ball. The defender was not prepared for Coleman to stop so quickly and his momentum carried him forward, off the TV screen. Coleman later saw a deep pass near the end zone in the first quarter, but Cody Kessler overthrew him. Coleman was closely covered on the play, so it's hard to say whether he would have been able to make the catch had it been on target. Coleman showed his toughness on a second quarter catch over the middle of the field. He went up for the ball, knowing he was going to take a big hit. The big hit came and Coleman showed no problem holding onto the ball for a nice pickup. He saw one last end zone target at the end of the second half, but the pass was batted away by the defender before it reached Coleman.
2016 Week 2 vs BAL (8 / 5 / 104 / 2 rec)
Coleman had a big day, scoring twice in the first quarter. The first touchdown came on a 31-yard strike from Josh McCown which hit Coleman right in stride. The rookie did a nice job keeping his second foot in bounds after the catch. Coleman's second touchdown came on a screen to the left side where Coleman simple outraced Jimmy Smith to the end zone. He later hauled in a deep 47-yard pass where he showed good concentration and jumping ability to leap up and bring in the ball. Coleman could have had a bigger day, but he had a 17-yard catch nullified by an illegal touch penalty as the referees determined he went out of bounds and didn't reestablish himself inbounds before making the catch. Coleman's last catch came during the two-minute drill where he displayed some elusiveness to juke a defender before showing nice awareness to get out of bounds to stop the clock.
2016 Week 1 vs PHI (5 / 2 / 69 / 0 rec)
Coleman's first target resulted in a drop on what appeared to be a perfect pass. It looked like Coleman turned upfield to start running before fully securing the grab. Coleman's big splash play came on a deep pass in the second quarter where he was double covered with a third Eagles defender in the area as well. The pass was underthrown by Robert Griffin and Coleman was the only one who was able to come back on the ball to bring it in. Griffin later took a deep shot to Coleman in the fourth quarter down the right sideline, but the ball was overthrown.
Latest NewsBrowns | Corey Coleman the Browns' guy (Wed Mar 29, 10:07 AM) - Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman is viewed as 'the guy,' according to head coach Hue Jackson, who wants Coleman to assume the role of No. 1 receiver. Our View: It's anybody's guess as to who the QB will be in Cleveland when the season opens, but Coleman should be the primary target in the passing attack. They selected him in the first round last year, and Coleman caught 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games as a rookie. Even with the free agent addition Kenny Britt, Coleman sounds like he'll be their main man...and that is a spot that could have WR3 (with WR2 upside) value for fantasy owners.
