    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell 'looked more explosive than ever last week', according to ESPN's Pat McManamon, who went on to say he believes Crowell will remain 'the main guy' with Duke Johnson serving as the change-of-pace back.

    Huddle Up: Although Crowell ranks fifth in the league with 195 yards rushing, it's been well-documented how fluky most of those yards have been, as 40 of them came on three draw plays at the end of a blowout loss in Week 1 and 85 more came on a complete defensive bust last week. With Cody Kessler expected to lead the offense for the next two months, the entire offense is most likely doomed. Since he provides very little in the passing game, it is highly unlikely Crowell will be anything more than a middling flex in a few weeks.

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed for 133 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2. He also caught one pass for 15 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Crowell has been receiving a majority of the carries at running back, while Duke Johnson has been used more as a receiver. Crowell should continue to be the main runner for Cleveland and could be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell will be 'turned loose' in Week 2, according to head coach Hue Jackson. 'We just have to hand it to him enough times,' Jackson said. 'If you have a runner you believe in, you have to give him the ball.'

    Huddle Up: Jackson clearly believes in Crowell, but the Browns have to be competitive in order to stick with the running game, and a matchup with Baltimore in Week 2 isn't ideal. At best, Crowell is a flex candidate.

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell could reach 1,000 rushing yards this year, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot, and Cabot believes Crowell is going to receive a 'bulk' of the carries this season.

    Huddle Up: Hue Jackson is the coach, so you know there will be a high volume of carries. If you slot Crowell in the Jeremy Hill role and Duke Johnson playing the part of Giovani Bernard from Jackson's last stop as OC in Cincinnati, Crowell should see the larger portion of a 60/40 split in carries. He'll need to be better than last year's 3.8 yards per carry to reach the 1,000-yard mark, but all indications are he'll be given the opportunity to do so.

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell might be in hot water for posting a controversial anti-police photo on social media, but beat writer Mary Kay Cabot says that the team is not believed to have any plans to cut the embattled back.

    Huddle Up: Maybe so, but perhaps the Browns will now plan on moving second-year back Duke Johnson more toward the forefront and rely less on Crowell.

  • Posted: 6/3/2016 11:06am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell is expected to be the starting running back when the regular season commences, according to ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi.

    Huddle Up: Duke Johnson is receiving most of the fantasy buzz this offseason, but after seeing Hue Jackson use a Jeremy Hill/Giovani Bernard committee in Cincinnati you have to expect Cleveland to employ a similar strategy. Crowell will handle the Hill role, which last season accounted for the larger share of the backfield touches.

  • Posted: 5/29/2016 9:26pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell and RB Duke Johnson will lead a smash-mouth, run-first offense, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

    Huddle Up: That would mark a departure from a year ago when the Browns ran only 36.5 percent of their offensive plays -- the seventh-lowest total in the league. Right now, though, the Huddle has both ranked in RB4 territory, and it might take an injury to the other for one of the Cleveland backs to move up.

  • Posted: 5/5/2016 12:00pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has a fan in head coach Hue Jackson, and his confidence in Crowell and RB Duke Johnson is why the team did not select a running back in the 2016 NFL Draft. Crowell led the team with 185 carries, 706 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. Jackson sees Crowell as a bellcow who can carry the load, and he is confident Crowell can find holes quicker this season.

    Huddle Up: Jackson and Co. had best hope they're right as the Browns had 14 draft picks and did use one on a running back. Count on Crowell getting most of the team's carries this season, but keep your fantasy expectations in check.

  • Posted: 1/22/2016 9:02am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell ran for 371 yards and three touchdowns over the final five games of 2015, and Liz Loza of Yahoo! Sports believes the offensive philosophy of new head coach Hue Jackson's will benefit Crowell.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is definitely an RB-friendly coach, and the Browns have an offensive line that should feed into his strengths. Whether Crowell is the guy Hue tabs as his go-to back, however, remains to be seen. Duke Johnson lurks in a potential Giovani Bernard-type role, and the Browns could use the draft and/or free agency to augment the position on their roster.

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and he is probable for the Week 16 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Crowell will go Sunday, and the Browns likely will need him with rookie RB Duke Johnson a question mark.

  • Posted: 12/24/2015 10:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

    Huddle Up: Crowell, the Browns' leading rusher with 565 yards on 154 carries, missed his second day for undisclosed personal reasons but should be able to play Sunday in K.C.

  • Posted: 12/15/2015 4:00pm ET

    Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said the team's running game has shifted from an outside scheme to focus more inside. RB Isaiah Crowell ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 over the San Francisco 49ers. 'We had some pull plays where we were blocking down and kicking out. We ran a good amount of inside zone where I thought the backs had real good vision. We realized our fastball anymore is not the outside zone, and it has transitioned to more of a downhill zone with some complementary gap-scheme runs,' Pettine said.

    Huddle Up: It's no doubt too late for most Crowell owners, but even if not, beware of a rugged matchup this week in Seattle.

  • Posted: 10/17/2015 8:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson's carries could continue to increase, possibly by 20%, according to ESPN.com's Pat McManamon. However, he'll continue to share touches with RB Isaiah Crowell. 'The way it went Sunday is pretty much going to be typical, I'd guess,' McManamon said. 'Duke had nine runs and eight passes thrown to him, Crowell 13 runs and two passes.'

    Huddle Up: Johnson is being used more in the passing game. He has 21 receptions in his last three games. If Johnson starts getting more carries, his fantasy value will go up even more. Right now he's a Flex option in PPR formats.
