Huddle Up: Both Duke Johnson and Terrance West are nursing injuries, allowing Crowell to take the lead in Cleveland's running back derby. Crowell has had fumbling issues in the past and the Browns' backfield is far from settled but he does offer some value in the seventh round.

Huddle Up: The undrafted Crowell, who started four games as a rookie last season, has the No. 1 gig to lose, but he can't afford too many miscues given that RB might be the deepest skill-position group on the team with fellow second-year back Terrance Williams and highly-touted rookie third-round pick Duke Johnson also in the mix.

Huddle Up: Crowell made four starts and led Cleveland backs with 4.1 yards per carry while finishing second with 607 rushing yards last year as a rookie. Still, with the uncertainty and crowded backfield, Crowell currently projects no higher than a RB3.

Huddle Up: Crowell finished second to the fellow rookie West last season in rushing (673-607) but had the better fantasy season thanks to his team-leading eight ground TDs. If he can get his fumbleits under control after coughing it up three times last season, he'll be the Cleveland RB to own as a solid flex option. If not, it'll be the next man up -- 2014 leading rusher West or the third-round rookie Johnson.

Huddle Up: Third-round pick Duke Johnson has been all the rage in the Browns' offseason camps, but don't forget about Crowell, the undrafted free agent who totaled 694 yards from scrimmage and finished second to Cincy's Jeremy Hill (9) among league rookies with eight rushing TDs last season. While he isn't flashy, Crowell has has the lead-back size (5-11, 225) that Johnson (5-9, 205) doesn't.

Huddle Up: Crowell is showing signs of progress in taking a step forward Thursday, and we'll see if the momentum carries over into Friday.

Huddle Up: The Browns are hoping Crowell can play this week but there's a chance he won't be able to go. If Crowell is out, Terrance West will draw the start and be a RB2/flex option against Indianapolis.

Huddle Up: There is some concern given that the Browns saw the need to sign RB Shaun Draughn earlier Wednesday, and it's definitely a situation to monitor throughout the week as Crowell as been the Browns' most productive back over the last month.

Huddle Up: Crowell and Terrance West are both seeing carries in the Browns backfield but Crowell is the lead dog right now. Crowell is an RB2, while West is more of a flex play...at least for now.

Huddle Up: Crowell's lack of Week 8 action was puzzling, especially considering the Browns were in control most of the way against the winless Raiders. Cleveland, though, has struggled mightily on the ground over the last 2 weeks, rushing for only 108 yards on 55 carries in games against Oakland and Jacksonville. See if Crowell and the Browns can turn it around Sunday against the visiting Bucs, who allow the sixth most fantasy points to opposing RBs.

Huddle Up: From the outside, it doesn't seem to be a huge concern with the rookie fumbling twice this season and losing one, but it obviously runs deeper than that as Crowell was limited to a season-low 2 touches in Week 8. Meanwhile, fellow rookie Terrance West rushed 7 times and had one reception in the win over the Raiders, but look for those roles to be reversed if Crowell can convince the coaches that his ball-security issues are behind him.

Huddle Up: Depending on how long Tate's knee injury keeps him down, the Browns could roll with a West/Crowell backfield tandem--not just this year, but with both being rookies it could be the plan for the foreseeable future.
