  Giants | Chris Ogbonnaya signs    Tue Dec 2, 06:36 PM

The New York Giants signed free-agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya (Panthers) to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Ogbonnaya is a versatile running back/fullback who can do everything. He can block, run and catch passes out of the backfield consistently. This signing raises some questions about the severity of Rashad Jenning's ankle injury. Keep watching the practice reports during the week.

  Panthers | Chris Ogbonnaya to be limited    Sat Oct 4, 11:21 AM

Carolina Panthers RB Chris Ogbonnaya's playing time in Week 5 will be limited, because he signed earlier this week and is not familiar with the offensive playbook.

Footballguys view: We don't know what the Panthers backfield will look like--oh wait, yes we do: a hot mess. Avoid starting any of these guys this week if possible. The only one with marginal value is Darrin Reaves as a RB4/flex.

  Panthers | Panthers to use hot hand at RB    Fri Oct 3, 02:08 PM

Carolina Panthers RBs Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya will all receive carries early in the game Week 5, and the team will continue to use whichever running back is producing, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Okay, maybe not 'hot' hand with this collection of backs...but can we at least get 'lukewarm' hand?? Ugh, what a mess. Fantasy owners need to avoid this if possible. Reaves is quick, but he lacks run after contact ability. Ogbonnaya is the best all-purpose back out of this group, but who knows how large his role will be on Sunday.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart unlikely to play    Thu Oct 2, 03:43 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) likely will not be able to play in Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said he is comfortable with RBs Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya.

Footballguys view: Reaves is an interesting guy to watch and a lot of analysts liked him predraft. That said, he didn't look that great last week when he had to enter the game cold and ended up mostly in pass protection. At this point, while he'll get the bulk of the work, he's no better than a RB4.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams out    Wed Oct 1, 10:14 AM

Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is out for Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Here we go with the Darrin Reaves era! Ugh, there are reports that Jonathan Stewart may return to action this week. We're just avoiding the Panthers RB situation right now even against a Bears defense that ranks 20th against the run and allows 122.5 rushing yards per game.

  Panthers | Panthers adding Chris Ogbonnaya    Mon Sep 29, 06:49 PM

The Carolina Panthers will sign free-agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya (Browns).

Footballguys view: Yes! Our man "Silent G" is back in the NFL. He's a running back/fullback 'tweener who can produce as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. The Panthers are desperate at the running back position because Mike Tolbert, Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams are all banged up.

  Browns | Cut Chris Ogbonnaya     Sat Aug 30, 10:22 AM

The Cleveland Browns cut RB Chris Ogbonnaya Saturday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: A captain of the Black Eyed Joe All-Name Team gets his walking papers. We hope that "Silent G" finds his way back into the league.

  Browns | Edwin Baker performing well    Sat Jun 28, 05:36 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Edwin Baker has had some good moments in spring practices and seems to be ahead of RB Chris Ogbonnaya in the pecking order. Ogbonnaya may be used mostly on special teams.

Footballguys view: Baker has a strong lower body and does a good job grinding his legs after contact. He'll be third string at best this year for the Browns behind starter Ben Tate, veteran Dion Lewis and rookie Terrance West. Rookie Isaiah Crowell could be the in the mix as well.

  Browns | Terrance West seeing first-team reps    Wed Jun 11, 10:08 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West has been getting reps with the first-team offense in practice, and he has shown power through the first level and quickness when eluding defenders. He is expected to play a major role for the team offensively. RB Chris Ogbonnaya has also taken reps with the first team while the team takes it slow with RB Ben Tate.

  Browns | Willis McGahee expects to return    Tue Dec 17, 02:19 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) said he's feeling 'pretty good' and expects to return in Week 16 after being inactive in Week 15.

Footballguys view: This just complicates the Browns backfield even further. We thought more of Edwin Baker could be on the menu based on his play in Week 15. Instead, it sounds like McGahee, Baker and "Silent G" Chris Ogbonnaya could all three have some sort of role this week. Avoid the situation if at all possible in your fantasy championship.

  Browns | Willis McGahee ruled out    Fri Dec 13, 03:05 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Chicago Bears. RB Chris Ogbonnaya will receive the majority of the workload in his place, with RB Fozzy Whittaker also seeing some work in relief.

Footballguys view: Ogbonnaya should be a fine RB2 play as long as he doesn't fumble and get benched a la Stevan Ridley. The Bears run defense is far and away the worst in the league.

  Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya feeling better    Thu Nov 21, 11:14 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs) was healthier in Week 11 than he had been in recent weeks, which allowed him to have more carries.

Footballguys view: We like "Silent G" as a low end RB2/flex play with upside against the Steelers in Week 12. We can trust him more than Willis McGahee each week.

Cleveland Browns TE MarQueis Gray (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 11.

  Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya practices in full    Wed Nov 13, 06:07 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Footballguys view: The Browns have a tough matchup against the Bengals this week. Willis McGahee has not been getting it done so perhaps we'll see more from Ogbonnaya as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

  Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya to see more carries    Fri Nov 8, 10:58 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya will start receiving more carries and dip into RB Willis McGahee's workload. McGahee is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry in 100 rushes.

Footballguys view: Ogbonnaya is a sneaky waiver wire add on his bye. He has been involved as a receiver and in the red zone, so adding more carries could make him an RB2 play in PPR leagues. The Browns offense looks better than expected in the passing game with Jason Campbell, which should loosen things up for the running game if the trend continues.

  Browns | More carries for Chris Ogbonnaya?     Tue Nov 5, 02:36 PM

Updating a previous item, Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said RB Chris Ogbonnaya could start to receive more carries.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in need of running back help should perk up here. Willis McGahee is just not getting it done. Ogbonnaya is a weapon who can contribute as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Keep him on waiver wire speed dial in case we do see more carries for him going forward.

  Browns | Two could get more carries    Sat Nov 2, 09:44 PM

Cleveland Browns RBs Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker could receive more carries as the season goes on.

Footballguys view: Willis McGahee has been ineffective, and the best weapons on the team are in the passing game anyway. Ogbonnaya and Whittaker could have desperation play value in PPR leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 11, and is probable for Week 6.
