Andrew Hawkins secured 5-of-9 targets for 112 yards in the Browns' Week 7 loss to the Jaguars.
He chipped in an eight-yard rushing attempt. Catch-less in Week 6, Hawkins bounced back for a big Sunday, leading Cleveland in receiving. He remains an every-week WR3 in PPR leagues, but leaves something to be desired in standard scoring at 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds. Hawkins and the Browns will take on the Raiders' weak defense next.

Date:

Andrew Hawkins was held without a catch on two targets in the Browns' Week 6 win over the Steelers.

The doughnut came on a day where the Browns attempted just 17 passes. Hawkins had been averaging six catches per game, but now has only three over his past two. Zero threat in the red zone, Hawkins is a borderline WR4 for standard-league purposes.
Oct 12 - 6:57 PM

Andrew Hawkins caught 3-of-9 targets for 27 yards in the Browns' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Through four games, Hawkins is now on pace for 84 catches, 976 yards, and no touchdowns. His value is greatly enhanced in PPR leagues, and far less attractive in non-PPR. The Browns play the Steelers next.
Oct 5 - 6:39 PM

Andrew Hawkins secured 7-of-10 targets for 87 yards in the Browns' Week 3 loss to Baltimore.

Hawkins has opened the season with stat lines of 8-87, 6-70, and 7-87, racking up a team-high 32 targets. Hawkins should be viewed as a WR3 in PPR leagues until he slows down, but that's likely as Jordan Cameron gets healthier. Hawkins has not scored a touchdown yet this year, and it's hard to imagine him hitting pay dirt often at 5-foot-7, 180. The Browns have a Week 4 bye.
Sep 21 - 5:32 PM

Andrew Hawkins caught 6-of-12 targets for 70 yards in the Browns' Week 2 win over the Saints.

Hawkins has now seen 22 targets through two games, which is more than enough to put him on the fantasy radar. Unfortunately for Hawkins, Brian Hoyer missed him on a couple lengthy passes and under threw him on the final pass of the game that could have easily been a 39-yard touchdown instead of the 21-yard gain Hawkins made out of it. It set up Billy Cundiff's game-winning 29-yard field goal with three seconds left. Hawkins is worth owning in PPR.
Sep 14 - 5:39 PM

Andrew Hawkins led the Browns in receiving in their Week 1 loss, catching 8-of-10 targets for 87 yards.

Hawkins' 10 looks were twice as many as Jordan Cameron, who departed midway through the second half with a shoulder injury. Although Hawkins is a dynamo out of the slot, he still maxes out as a WR4 for fantasy purposes in standard leagues.
Sep 7 - 6:06 PM

Andrew Hawkins caught 5-of-5 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game.

He was the only Browns receiver to stand out, saving the first-team offense from a truly horrid night by catching three passes for 16 yards and a touchdown on Brian Hoyer's only scoring drive. Baby Hawk now has seven grabs for 63 yards through three preseason games. He'll be worth WR4/5 consideration as the Browns' slot receiver.
Aug 23 - 11:45 PM

According to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala, Andrew Hawkins is the only receiver to "distinguish himself" in Browns camp, so far.

Similar to what we read in the spring. Baby Hawk is going to see snaps all over the Josh Gordon-less Browns offense this season as a jitterbug playmaker. Brian Hoyer compared Hawkins' work ethic in the spring to Wes Welker's. Hawkins has more value in PPR as a volume pass-catcher. He's currently going in the late 13th round in fantasy drafts. Hawkins has some deep sleeper appeal.

Browns WRs coach Mike McDaniel said Andrew Hawkins will see some time outside.

McDaniel doesn't want to limit Hawkins to the slot, because then he'll only be on the field in three-wide sets. The Browns' brutal receiving corps needs him on the field much more than that. So even though Baby Hawk goes 5'7/180, his vertical speed and jitterbug quicks give him a shot for at least spot duty on the outside. He's been the star of Browns OTAs. "The guy runs his routes so hard. It reminds me a lot of my time in New England with (Wes) Welker where the guy runs every route to win," Brian Hoyer said.
Jun 12 - 10:16 AM

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Andrew Hawkins has been the Browns' best wideout at OTAs "by far."

Yes, Josh Gordon has been participating in the sessions. We're not surprised at all that Hawkins is starring, as he's been among the league's most underrated receivers for the last couple seasons. With Gordon expected to miss the entire season, the Browns quarterbacks are going to love throwing to this speedy, sudden jitterbug. Baby Hawk has a nice opportunity with only Jordan Cameron truly ahead of him on the target totem pole. "He's been one of our most consistent guys through spring," coach Mike Pettine said of Hawkins.
Jun 4 - 9:33 AM

Browns signed WR Andrew Hawkins, formerly of the Bengals, to a four-year, $13.6 million contract.

The Bengals had until midnight to match the Browns' offer sheet but informed Hawkins they weren't going to do so. Four years and $13.6 million with a $5.8 million first-year cap number is a hefty price to pay for a 5-foot-7, 180-pound jitterbug slot receiver, but the Browns badly needed a talent infusion on offense. Hawkins can turn simple plays into monster gains with his speed. Tavon Austin drew some Hawkins comparisons last April. Hawkins will be the No. 3 option in the passing game, behind target monster Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron.

The Bengals have until midnight ET Tuesday night/Wednesday morning to match the Browns offer sheet to restricted free agent Andrew Hawkins.

The Browns inked Hawkins to a four-year, $13.6 million offer sheet last Thursday, and the Bengals were given five days to match or let Hawkins walk. According to multiple reports, Cincinnati is expected to let Hawkins go to the rival Browns. The Bengals will receive no compensation in return. In Cleveland, Hawkins would be penciled in as the No. 3 option in the passing game.
Mar 18 - 11:07 AM

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports the Bengals are now unlikely to match restricted free agent Andrew Hawkins' four-year, $13.6 million offer sheet with the Browns.

The deal pays Hawkins $10.8 million over the first two years, and includes a $5.8 million cap hit for 2014. The Browns are using their ample cap space as a weapon. It appears it will land them their man, but that's a pretty huge chunk of change for a 5-foot-7 slot receiver, no matter how dynamic. The Bengals would be wise to let Hawkins walk. They'll receive no compensation if he does, as he was an undrafted free agent.

Restricted free agent Andrew Hawkins signed a four-year, $13.6 million offer sheet with the Browns.

The deal includes $10.8 million over the first two seasons, and a $5.8 million cap hit in 2014. The Bengals have five days to match or let Hawkins walk. It's a big chunk of change for a 5-foot-7 slot receiver, one that was also clearly designed to make it tough for the Bengals to match. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, they do indeed plan to match, however.
Mar 13 - 12:46 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bengals plan to match the four-year, $12.2 million offer sheet restricted free agent Andrew Hawkins signed with the Browns.

It's a surprise given the $5.3 million guaranteed in the deal and the Bengals depth chart at wideout. It also speaks to just how underrated Hawkins' talent is outside of the league. NFL teams realize that the undersized yet jitterbug quick slot man can be a very valuable piece of a passing game. The Bengals are going to pony up the cash to keep him away from their division rival.
