  Browns | David Njoku listed as limited    Wed Dec 11, 05:20 PM

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Njoku was back last week and had to shake off some rust. It's a better matchup this week against the Cardinals, making Njoku a 'what the heck' tight end in Week 15.

  Browns | Odell Beckham Jr. limited    Wed Dec 11, 12:00 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Beckham is going to continue being limited by this groin injury. Fantasy GMs are not trusting the star receiver that much right now but it is a matchup against the Cardinals. That makes Beckham a WR2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in Week 15.

  Browns | No discipline for Baker Mayfield    Mon Dec 9, 10:26 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was critical of the training staff concerning the injury to WR Odell Beckham Jr. and how it has been handled. Head coach Freddie Kitchens addressed the situation with his quarterback. 'We don't want him addressing other players' injuries, in that manner especially,' Kitchens said Monday, Dec. 9. 'It's been addressed and (Mayfield) understands how to handle things like that moving forward.'

Footballguys view: Mayfield was speaking his truth when talking about the mishandling of Beckham's injury...and the team didn't like that. We love the refreshing honesty that Mayfield gives the media from time to time but we doubt we'll hear any more about a teammate's injury going forward.

  Browns | Odell Beckham Jr. won't be rested    Mon Dec 9, 10:23 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip, groin) will not be shut down for the season, head coach Freddie Kitchens said Monday, Dec. 9. 'Odell and our training staff have done a tremendous job of getting Odell to the game each and every week,' Kitchens said.

Footballguys view: Beckham is clearly not himself and the frustration level can be felt from him and his quarterback Baker Mayfield. Fantasy GMs are finding it difficult to trust this situation in the fantasy playoffs. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports Beckham has told players and coaches on other teams he wants out of Cleveland. Expect this to be a wild offseason for the Browns.

  Browns | Odell Beckham wants out?    Mon Dec 9, 11:17 AM

Footballguys view: Beckham is under contract through the 2023 season but moving him might prove to be difficult. There have been varying reports about his desire to remain with the Browns but there's enough buzz about this to believe something could be up with the oft-injured veteran receiver.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs have been waiting for Njoku to get back for a couple of weeks. You probably have a better option this week, but Njoku could be a big part of the Browns offense over the last month of the season. Let's see if and how much he plays against the Bengals on Sunday.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs can consider Njoku a TE2 this week. We have to see how much of a role he has against the Bengals. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Njoku could be a big part of the Browns offense over the last month of the season.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (thumb, hand) completed 18-of-32 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and one interception with a lost fumble in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He suffered an apparent right thumb or hand injury at the end of the first half and returned after halftime wearing a glove on his throwing hand.

Footballguys view: Mayfield and Browns offense was thwarted by halftime adjustments made by Mike Tomlin to the defense. He'll face a Bengals defense that came alive against the Jets today and is only a low-end QB2/Superflex.
