From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): Hawkins had a nice day against Houston, and he might hang on to some marginal PPR value, especially if Josh Gordon draws double teams and opens things up underneath for him. The net effect of Gordon taking away targets could be offset by Hawkins getting bigger plays when he is targeted.

Week 12: at Atlanta Falcons

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Brian Hoyer threw 50 passes last week in the chase position behind the Texans (Cleveland never led in the game) and wound up finishing Sunday with 20/50 for 330 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -13 yards. Andrew Hawkins (13 targets for 6/97/1 receiving) led the team in receiving while Taylor Gabriel also saw 13 targets (for 5/92/0 receiving). The lack of tight end Jordan Cameron (out due to concussion after effects) will be ameliorated this week as Josh Gordon finally returns from his 10-game suspension - just as the Browns' passing attack is heating up. Hoyer and Gordon had good chemistry last year (during Week 3 of 2013 Hoyer threw 19 passes for 10/146/1 receiving to Gordon), so if they are able to rekindle the connection in practices this week we may see some aerial fireworks from this duo. The Falcons' pass D is ranked 32nd in the NFL averaging 281.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 14 passing scores given out vs. nine interceptions (tied for 15th in the NFL) and thirteen sacks (tied for 29th) generated to date. Cam Newton was right on the usual pace against Atlanta last week, with 23/37 for 285 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -7 yards, while Josh McCown posted very similar (strong) passing numbers two weeks ago, with 27/43 for 281 net passing yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -20 yards. Atlanta's secondary scares nobody, friends. Advantage, Cleveland.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs TB (8 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)

Andrew Hawkins struggled on Sunday, finishing with only 4.25 yards per target and without a score. Given Hawkins' lack of touchdown upside, these types of games are very hard to swallow as fantasy owners. Hawkins was matched up against one of the top defensive backs in the league in Alterraun Verner, so that must be taken into consideration when evaluating his performance. Verner is one of the quickest cornerbacks in the league, and that matched up very against the agile Hawkins. Hawkins did leave the game after a very hard hit from Verner in the third quarter, but did return in the fourth. Hawkins only managed one catch after returning from the game. With a short week upcoming, however, it is vital to keep an eye on the injury report.

2014 Week 11 vs HOU (13 / 6 / 97 / 1 rec)

With the Texans playing off coverage for most of the second half, Andrew Hawkins received many targets in the underneath area. Much of what Andrew Hawkins gained on Sunday was given to him by the defense on Sunday. This is not to take away from his great touchdown catch, a run and catch on a drag where the Texans defensive back lost his footing, leaving Hawkins tons of room to scamper for six points. However, Hawkins was not able to make those big plays that a team needs out of their number one receiver when they are down big. Hawkins is miscast as a number one receiver, and it is not fair to ask him to play the big wide receiver role in this offense. Hawkins was his usual shifty self on Sunday, and did make a nice catch after absorbing a hit in the 4th quarter.
