Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/23/16 6:05am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, barring a last-minute setback, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Pryor should be viewed as a WR3 or flex option if he suits up for Sunday's game but owners should monitor the inactive list and have alternate options available in case the Browns sit him out.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/23/16 8:21am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 7 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Pryor has been dealing with a hamstring injury but likely will have a normal workload this week. He is the team's No. 1 receiver and should see a solid amount of targets. Owners in most leagues should consider Pryor as a No. 3 receiver.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 10/23/16 1:48pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge caught six passes for 66 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Barnidge has still not been able find the end zone but has been posting solid numbers no matter which quarterback is throwing to him. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues and has more value in point-per-reception leagues.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 10/23/16 1:44pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell rushed for 63 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. He also caught three passes for 16 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Crowell received the majority of the carries during the game and should continue to be main runner for the Browns moving forward. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/23/16 1:54pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor caught two passes for 18 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Pryor's hamstring injury limited him or if the team's quarterback situation was the reason for disappointing performance. Pryor can still be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in some leagues, but his value will depend on the team's starting quarterback.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/21/16 1:52pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) has 'a chance' to play Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to head coach Hue Jackson.
Huddle Up: Jackson stated Thursday he has 'been dying' to give Rashard Higgins more playing time and said 'obviously we will see more of Rashard this week, so it's fair to expect Pryor to be limited if he is active. If Pryor is inactive, look for Gary Barnidge to take on a primary role in the passing game, while Higgins, Andrew Hawkins and perhaps Ricardo Louis vie for snaps at receiver. Only Barnidge is worth a start in fantasy this week.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/21/16 2:19pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Pryor appears to be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. Pryor will be the team's top receiver if he plays and can be a No. 3 receiver for owners, but they will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/20/16 9:28am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Pryor's status for Week 7 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Pryor has become the Browns' top target in the passing game and has been targeted at least nine times in four of the last five games. He should be a No. 3 receiver if is active, but owners will need other options ready in case he misses the game.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/20/16 10:46am ET
Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson said he is optimistic that WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) will be able to play in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Owners will have a better idea of Pryor's status later in the week and will need to keep an eye on the situation. Pryor can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays this week, but owners will need other options available in case Pryor is ruled out.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/19/16 3:03pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Pryor may be a game-time decision for Week 7, so owners should monitor his situation throughout the week. He has caught three touchdown passes in the last three games and has been targeted at least nine times in four of the last five games. Pryor should be a starting option if he is able to play, but owners will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.
Ricardo Louis - WRPosted 10/19/16 7:01pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis might start opposite WR Andrew Hawkins in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals if WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) is unable to go.
Huddle Up: Even if Louis is able to play, fantasy owners should temper expectations. He would only be a WR4 in the deepest of fantasy leagues only, with Andrew Hawkins having more fantasy appeal.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/19/16 7:00pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) said Wednesday, Oct. 19, that he vows to do everything in his power to play in the Week 7 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that cut him last summer. Pryor said he would be staying late at the team's headquarters throughout this week to rehab his injury.
Huddle Up: Pryor leads the team in catches, receiving yards and touchdown receptions. If Pryor is unable to play it would be Andrew Hawkins and Ricardo Louis starting at receiver. Wait until Friday to make a decision on Pryor for your fantasy lineup. If he can practice in full, he will be a decent fantasy option.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 10/18/16 11:29am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will not need surgery on his injured shoulder, barring any setbacks. Griffin's four-week checkup revealed healing in Griffin's fractured coracoid bone in his left shoulder, according to sources. Griffin is on the short-term Reserve/Injured list and wouldn't be able to return to action until Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Cody Kessler has actually played pretty well as a rookie in place of Griffin and McCown. Either one could very well start if/when they're ready to play again, but it's Kessler's team for the time being. The rule of thumb, though, is to avoid any starting Cleveland quarterback.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 10/17/16 12:01pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) sustained a hamstring injury during a Week 6 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Head coach Hue Jackson said the team will 'see how it goes' throughout the week in regards to his status for Week 7 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: It's almost as if any Brown who has taken snaps at quarterback this season is destined to get hurt. Pryor had a huge day with nine catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns versus the Titans, but owners want to monitor the situation this week in order to determine whether or not he can be started against the Bengals. If this turns out to a minor issue, Pryor has proven he can be trusted as a WR3 with WR2 upside.
Corey Coleman - WRPosted 10/17/16 12:11pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) has yet to be cleared for practice and will likely miss his fifth straight game in Week 7 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Coleman was expected to be sidelined four to six weeks after breaking his hand late last month, so next week puts him at the back end of that timeline. The rookie flashed big-time playmaking ability in two games before the injury, so owners in need of receiver help may want to see if he is on the waiver wire. The Browns are getting competent quarterback play from rookie Cody Kessler and Terrelle Pryor is emerging a primary option, so Coleman should be able to be a serviceable WR3 upon his return.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 10/16/16 6:22am ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) will play in Week 6's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Barnidge was listed as questionable on the most recent edition of the injury report and took part in practice on a limited basis throughout the week. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 regardless of who the quarterback is.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 10/16/16 9:28am ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Barnidge has caught at least five passes in each of the last three games and has at least 57 yards in each of the games. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 10/16/16 1:06pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (knee) suffered a knee injury during the team's Week 6 game but was able to return.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been involved in the running and passing game this season and has played well at times. He could be a flex option in leagues but likely will continue to see limited touches.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 10/14/16 4:14pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Barnidge was limited during practice all week but should be able to play in Week 6. He has posted decent numbers no matter which quarterback is starting, which makes him a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 10/13/16 5:53pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Cody Kessler is in line to start in Week 6, and McCown can continue to be avoided in all formats.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 10/13/16 6:01pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Barnidge has a steady role in Cleveland's passing game and is a low-end TE1 against Tennessee in Week 6.
Gary Barnidge - TEPosted 10/12/16 2:25pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Barnidge should be able to play in Week 6 even though he is limited this week. He has been a solid part of the team's passing game with 236 yards in five games. Barnidge should be a low-end No. 1 tight end no matter who starts at quarterback.
Cody Kessler - QBPosted 10/11/16 12:27pm ET
There is hope that Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (ribs) will still be able to play in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans despite QB Kevin Hogan being promoted from the practice squad.
Huddle Up: Kessler is the Browns' best option at quarterback until Josh McCown returns, but that probably won't be this week. Either way, the Cleveland quarterback situation is one to avoid, especially versus a Titans squad that has been one of the better fantasy defenses against quarterbacks this year.
Andrew Hawkins - WRPosted 10/11/16 2:39pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Andrew Hawkins saw his offensive snaps increase from 75 percent in Week 4 to 86 percent in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Hawkins too advantage of his snap increase, catching four balls for 56 yards and a touchdown. He and Terrelle Pryor are the only viable receivers who are healthy right now for the Browns. Hawkins' fantasy value will dramatically decrease once Corey Coleman returns, but, if nothing else, Hawkins is a cheaper play in daily contests.
Cody Kessler - QBPosted 10/9/16 10:49am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler (chest, ribs) suffered chest and rib injuries during the team's Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Charlie Whitehurst likely will take over as the starting quarterback with Kessler sidelined. Owners will need to keep an eye out for an update on Kessler's status over the next day or two, but owners probably should avoid all Cleveland quarterbacks.
Charlie Whitehurst - QBPosted 10/9/16 12:56pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Charlie Whitehurst (undisclosed) limped off the field during the team's Week 5 game after suffering an undisclosed injury. WR Terrelle Pryor replaced Whitehurst at quarterback.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the Browns quarterback situation because Whitehurst and Cody Kessler were injured in Week 5. The team likely will bring in at least one quarterback if the injuries are serious, but owners in all leagues probably should avoid whoever starts for Cleveland.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 10/3/16 3:00pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will remain on the NFL's Reserve/Suspended list pending further notice. Gordon recently checked himself into a rehabilitation facility.
Huddle Up: Gordon's future in Cleveland is all but over, and he may not play in a professional football game ever again. Terrelle Pryor remains the only fantasy relevant receiver for the Browns for the time being, but Corey Coleman will make a nice No. 2 when he returns from injury. Their ceiling is lowered with Cody Kessler at the helm, although Pryor has played like a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 the last two weeks with Kessler.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 10/2/16 2:57pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell ran 15 times for 112 yards and scored one touchdown Sunday, Oct. 2, in a 31-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Crowell appears to have a handle on the Browns' No. 1 running back spot, which may carry more weight given the struggles of the team. Some matchups may be worse than others, but overall Crowell should do well.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/30/16 1:30pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be released shortly in the wake of his announcement Thursday, Sept. 29, that he will an in-patient rehabilitation facility and after head coach Hue Jackson suggested the team was looking to move forward without the troubled receiver. 'We wish him well. We need to close that chapter right now. We're moving on,' Jackson said Friday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: It seems hard to believe a single team isn't willing to part with the conditional seventh-rounder to land Gordon, but the Browns may simply want to move on with their rebuilding process as quickly as possible. The supremely talented receiver will almost certainly get another shot, but let's first hope he can get his life in order first. He should be considered out indefinitely.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 9/30/16 2:10pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Crowell should continue to receive a majority of the carries during the game and will be facing a Washington Redskins team that has struggled against the run. He should be a decent No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
