The Cleveland Browns, who are last in the NFL in run defense, will look to corral San Diego rookie Melvin Gordon in Week 4.
The Browns are giving up 158.3 rushing yards per game this season and will travel to San Diego to face the Chargers and Gordon, who is averaging 4.3 yards per carry on 44 chances in 2015. While the matchup is great for the rookie, the Cleveland D/ST will not be a recommended fantasy option on the road against a San Diego offense racking up over 400 yards per game. Oct 2 - 1:08 AM

The Cleveland Browns have given up 160 rushing yards per game so far in 2015, the worst mark among NFL teams.

Chris Ivory did the damage in Week 1, followed by Dexter McCluster in Week 2. Cleveland is also allowing 4.8 yards per carry this season and faces a very capable running back in Latavius Murray on Sunday. The Browns D/ST will be a back-end starting fantasy unit in Week 3 at home against Oakland, but will need to see improvement from their defensive front.

Cleveland DC Jim O'Neil gave his support to cornerback Joe Haden after a rough Week 1 effort from the star cornerback.

O'Neil told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "There are a couple plays I'm sure he wishes that he could have back. I'm confident in Joe. I wouldn't want any other corner in this league than Joe Haden." The Browns defense will need to see improvement from Haden and their entire secondary this week as the efficient Marcus Mariota comes to town. The Browns D/ST is a mid-range Week 2 fantasy option at home against Tennessee.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer called the Browns defensive line the most improved position group of the offseason.

Improvement on the Cleveland defensive line was certainly needed, as the Browns finished last in the NFL in stopping the run a season ago. Rookie NT Danny Shelton was a huge addition for this defense through the draft and will help tighten up the Cleveland defensive front. The Cleveland D/ST unit has an interesting Week 1 matchup upcoming against the New York Jets, where they will enter the streaming conversation for the NFL's opening weekend.

Cleveland CB Joe Haden is expected to make his 2015 preseason debut on Saturday against Tampa Bay.

The Browns will allow their star defensive back to knock some rust off in Week 3 of the preseason before likely sitting out the Cleveland preseason finale. The Cleveland D/ST unit has been an afterthought in fantasy drafts this summer, but will be useful in Week 1 of the regular season as they face the New York Jets in a game with the lowest expected point total from oddsmakers on the opening NFL slate.
