Andrew Hawkins secured 2-of-3 targets for 27 yards in the Browns' Week 4 loss to San Diego.
He's essentially sharing time with Taylor Gabriel behind Travis Benjamin and Brian Hartline. The Browns' four-way receiver rotation expanded to five Sunday when Dwayne Bowe was elevated to the game-day roster.
Dwayne Bowe was targeted once in the Browns' Week 4 loss to San Diego.
He failed to secure the target. Bowe is the Browns' No. 5 receiver behind Travis Benjamin, Brian Hartline, Taylor Gabriel, and Andrew Hawkins.
James Jones caught 5-of-6 targets for 96 yards in the Packers' Week 4 win over the 49ers.
Jones was the Packers' leading receiver on a day where Randall Cobb appeared bothered by his troublesome shoulder. Although he didn't score, Jones made an unreal catch in the third quarter, hauling in a 38-yard pass down the left sideline by displaying amazing feet. Reunited with Aaron Rodgers, it's like Jones' dismal 2014 in Oakland never happened. The 31-year-old wideout is on course for 68/1,268/16. We'd expect the latter two paces to slacken, but Jones is firmly on the WR2 radar for the time being. He's moving ahead of Davante Adams on the depth chart.
Isaiah Crowell rushed 12 times for 63 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 62 yards in the Browns' Week 4 loss to the Chargers.
He finished with 15 touches to Duke Johnson's 17, and was not in the game on a late goal-line series where Johnson got a carry at the one-yard line. Crowell played very well against San Diego, but Johnson is making a clear push for a bigger role. Crowell will be a tough sell as more than a low-end fantasy RB2 when the Browns take on a tough Ravens run defense in Week 5.
Chris Johnson rushed 16 times for 83 yards in the Cardinals' Week 4 loss to the Rams.
He caught all three of his pass-game targets for 11 yards. With Andre Ellington (knee) being held out, Johnson dominated backfield touches, out-carrying rookie David Johnson, 16-3. Chris continues to look spry and shifty with some juice in his legs and picked up some chunk gains against an aggressive Rams defense. Ellington should be back Week 5 against the Lions, but CJ2K remains the favorite to lead this backfield in carries for the time being. He's a low-end RB2.
Gary Barnidge secured 6-of-6 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 4 loss to San Diego.
It almost defies belief that Barnidge is breaking out at age 30 after bouncing around the NFL, but he's become a legitimately featured portion of Cleveland's passing attack. With six catches in back-to-back games, Barnidge warrants streamer consideration entering a Week 5 date with the Ravens.
Randall Cobb caught 5-of-8 targets for 44 yards in the Packers' Week 4 win over the 49ers.
Four of Cobb's catches and 41 of his yards came before the break, as Cobb appeared to tweak his troublesome right shoulder on his final target of the first half. Cobb was never announced with an injury, but he seemed to be bothered. Either way, it's encouraging that he never left the game. With 25 percent of the season now in the books, Cobb is on pace for 100/1,156/16. Provided his health is in order, he'll remain a top-five WR1 for next week's game against the Rams.
Travis Benjamin secured 6-of-10 targets for 79 yards in the Browns' Week 4 loss to San Diego.
He's now seen 10 targets in back-to-back games, while Benjamin's playing time has improved by the week. Even in a suspect Browns passing attack, Benjamin is trending toward WR3 value in standard and PPR leagues, and he's already there in return-yardage settings. View Benjamin as a boom-or-bust fantasy option when the Browns face a leaky Ravens pass defense in Week 5.
