Brian Hartline caught 8-of-12 targets for 74 yards in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.
The targets and catchers were both season-highs. Hartline has posted back-to-back 77- and 74-yard receiving games and appears to have cemented his spot as the No. 2 receiver with Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel both battling concussions. Still, Hartline has zero upside and a low floor. He's a WR5/6. Dec 1 - 12:54 AM

Brian Hartline snared six of nine targets for 77 yards in the Browns' Week 10 loss to the Steelers.

He missed last week’s game with a concussion. Hartline is finally carving a role for himself in the Browns’ passing game. He’s been targeted 19 times over his last two games. Despite his recent resurgence, Hartline will be well off the fantasy radar when the Browns host Baltimore in Week 12.

Brian Hartline (probable, concussion) has been cleared to return Sunday.

Hartline practiced in full after sitting out last week. Andrew Hawkins (concussion) is also probable.
Nov 13 - 7:31 PM

Browns WRs Brian Hartline (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) were full participants in Wednesday's practice.

The practice puts both on track to play against the Steelers, but neither player is worth using in fantasy. Taylor Gabriel will slot back in as the No. 4 receiver, and Dwayne Bowe should once again find himself on the inactive list.
Nov 12 - 10:52 AM

Brian Hartline (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 9.

With Andrew Hawkins (concussion) also sidelined, Travis Benjamin and Taylor Gabriel should start in two-wide sets. Dwayne Bowe will be active for the second straight game.
Nov 4 - 7:04 PM

Nov 3 - 9:34 PM

Brian Hartline suffered a concussion in the Browns' Week 8 loss to Arizona.

The brain injury was not known publicly until the Browns listed it on their injury report ahead of Thursday night's game at Cincinnati. Hartline caught two TDs in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He'll miss Week 9.
Nov 2 - 4:30 PM

Brian Hartline caught 4-of-10 targets for 32 yards and two touchdowns in the Browns' Week 8 loss to the Cardinals.

A career day for Hartline after he entered the game with 12 career touchdowns in six-plus seasons. It was definitely an outlier performance and one that we shouldn't read into deeply. Leave Hartline on waivers. He entered the game with just 12 catches for 150 scoreless yards. Mixed in with the two scores, Hartline also dropped a couple passes.
Nov 1 - 5:52 PM

Oct 14 - 4:44 PM

Brian Hartline secured 1-of-3 targets for five yards in the Browns' Week 5 win over the Ravens.

Five other Browns pass catchers topped 45 receiving yards in this one. Hartline's usage will come and go this season in a muddled receiver corps. He isn't even worth rostering in 16-team fantasy leagues.
Oct 11 - 6:03 PM

Brian Hartline (ribs, thigh) is expected to play Sunday against the Ravens.

Hartline wasn't available for practice this week after suffering rib and thigh injuries against the Chargers in Week 4. Four Browns have been targeted more than Hartline this season. He's not getting enough volume to warrant fantasy consideration.
Oct 11 - 8:52 AM

Brian Hartline (ribs, thigh) is questionable for Week 5 against the Ravens.

Hartline hasn't practiced since suffering a rib injury and a bruised thigh in last week's loss to San Diego. The veteran has only caught eight balls for 123 yards this season. He's not on the fantasy radar.
Oct 9 - 1:21 PM

Brian Hartline (ribs, thigh) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Both injuries were suffered in Week 4. Aside from a 96-yard effort against Oakland in Week 3, Hartline has been a non-factor this year.
Oct 8 - 2:41 PM

Brian Hartline (ribs, thigh) is not practicing Wednesday.

Hartline got dinged up in Week 4, but didn't suffer any broken ribs. He's on pace to catch just 32 balls for 492 scoreless yards this season. Same old Hartline.
