Isaiah Crowell said he talked to coach Hue Jackson about getting him more carries.
Crowell has opened the season against a pair of tough run defenses in the Steelers and Ravens and has managed just 70 rushing yards on 27 carries (2.59 YPC) along with 33 yards on two catches. Jackson wants to get him the ball more, but we've heard him say this before. The good news is the schedule softens a bit with the Colts, Bengals, and Jets on deck for the Browns, even though the Colts are second in the league in run defense after two weeks. Sep 20 - 12:49 PM

Isaiah Crowell managed 37 yards on ten carries and missed his lone target in the Browns' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

A big game was never expected for Crowell in this spot, but it was still a frustrating effort. Crowell has just 70 yards on 27 carries to begin the season. The good news is Crowell is now in a buy-low position. In Weeks 3-5, the Browns face the Colts, Bengals, and Jets, all of whom pose plus run-defense matchups.
Sep 17 - 6:55 PM

Isaiah Crowell rushed for 33 yards on 17 carries while adding 33 yards on two receptions in Sunday’s loss to the Steelers.

Crowell also added a rushing two-point conversion. While his 1.9 yards per carry with a long run of just six yards isn’t endearing, the workload is. Crowell matched his 19 touches Sunday just five times a year ago. Hue Jackson has made it clear that he doesn’t want to abandon the run this season like he did a year and he held to his word Week 1. Crowell will find sledding just as touch next week on the road in Baltimore, but remains a volume-based RB2 for fantasy.
Sep 10 - 5:54 PM

Isaiah Crowell carried 11 times for 40 yards in Saturday’s preseason game.

After receiving just six times for 15 yards through the opening two preseason games, Crowell out-touched Duke Johnson 11 to three with the first-team offense. He didn't receive a target, but the touches are encouraging. In the seven times Cleveland got Crowell to at least 15 touches in a game a year ago, he was a top-12 scorer five times. If Cleveland remains more competitive in 2017 just to the point of being competent, Crowell should return on the RB14 price tag he currently carries.

Isaiah Crowell said his agent Drew Rosenhaus has been in "heavy communication" with the Browns about a contract extension.

Coming off a breakout 2016 campaign, Crowell will earn $2.746 million in the final year of his rookie deal. "This is where I want to be," said Crowell. "I am comfortable with my teammates, love my teammates, love my coaches and just love the city of Cleveland." Even with Duke Johnson spelling him on passing downs, Crowell has put himself at the high end of the RB2 conversation.
Jul 28 - 3:28 PM

Browns RBs coach Kirby Wilson believes Isaiah Crowell has only "scratched the surface" and isn't "even in his prime yet."

"He saw what happens last year; when you work extremely hard, good things happen for you," said Wilson. "I think he enjoyed that limited success, and he’s hungry and eager and looking for even more." Crowell had some weeks where he disappeared due to game flow, but he still set a career high with 952 rushing yards while finishing ninth in the league in yards per carry (4.81). The 24-year-old has been going near the third-/fourth-round turn in early drafts.

Speaking Wednesday, coach Hue Jackson said he's committed to running the ball more in 2017.

"Go look at my film," Jackson said, indicating that his history has always been to run the ball. He also believes Isaiah Crowell can "take it to another level" this season after rushing for 952 yards and seven touchdowns on 198 carries (4.8 YPC) last season, and the running back agrees, saying he is in for a "monster year." Crowell was the only running back in the top-20 in rushing last year to have fewer than 205 attempts. Now armed with one of the top offensive lines following the additions of RG Kevin Zeitler and C J.C. Tretter, along with the return of LG Joel Bitonio, Crowell has RB1 upside if the Browns commit to him.

Isaiah Crowell is present for the start of OTAs.

Playing on a one-year tender, Crowell skipped voluntary workouts, and there were rumblings he would skip OTAs as well. He is back in the fold now and will attempt to prove he is worth an extension. Crowell is owed $2.75 million this year.
May 23 - 1:15 PM

Contract-year RB Isaiah Crowell could skip voluntary OTAs.

Crowell signed his RFA tender but may wait until minicamp to report after not getting an extension. It's a non-concern with the Browns returning the same offense under Hue Jackson. Crowell will make $2.75 million in 2017.

Browns re-signed RB Isaiah Crowell to a one-year, $2.746 million contract.

It's the value of his second round tender. Crowell was hoping for an extension, but there hadn't been any progress since January. Cleveland wants see more from Crowell before committing to him after an uneven 2016. Behind a massively upgraded offensive line, Crowell projects as an upside RB2 pick for 2017.
May 10 - 7:57 PM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports "at least three teams have inquired about" Browns restricted free agent RB Isaiah Crowell.

Crowell was tendered at the second-round level, making it unlikely he's tendered an offer sheet elsewhere. Crowell had a wildly uneven, but ultimately productive 2016. The former UDFA just turned 24 in January. He should lead the Browns' backfield in 2017.
Mar 13 - 2:16 PM

The Browns placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent Isaiah Crowell.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the two sides are working on a long-term deal. The $2.81 million tender will give the Browns more time to hash out details. Crowell started 2016 hot with 447 total yards and three touchdowns in the first four games. Hampered by an injury-marred offensive line, he slowed down considerably the rest of the way, but he still set career highs in carries (198), receptions (40), and total yards (1,271). The Browns have been linked with running backs this offseason, but the long-term negotiations suggest Crowell will remain atop the depth chart in 2017.
Feb 28 - 10:38 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns have reached a "stalemate" in extension talks with restricted free agent Isaiah Crowell.

RapSheet contends the sides were in "heavy talks" at one point. It doesn't make much sense for the Browns to commit long term to Crowell when they can retain him with a cheap restricted free agent tender. Crowell is a solid runner who averaged 4.8 yards per carry this past season, but his monetary value is minimal as a two-down grinder who already has over 500 NFL carries under his belt.
Jan 20 - 2:06 PM

Isaiah Crowell rushed 19 times for 152 yards in the Browns' Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

Crowell added three catches for 16 yards but also lost a critical fumble inside the Steelers' five-yard line with under a minute left in the fourth quarter and the score tied 21-21. It cost the Browns the win, one they probably didn't even want. Crowell got off to a scorching-hot start in 2016, rushing for 394 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1-4. But with the Browns getting creamed on a weekly basis and offensive linemen dropping like flies, Crowell had no chance to get a consistent workload. He ended the year strong, with 113- and 152-yard games in Weeks 14 and 17, falling 48 yards shy of 1,000 on the season. Crowell rushed 198 times for 952 yards (4.8 YPC) and seven touchdowns. He caught 40 passes for an additional 319 yards. Crowell will be a restricted free agent this offseason and should be brought back as the No. 1 back in 2017.
Jan 1 - 6:59 PM

Isaiah Crowell rushed 16 times for 54 yards and two touchdowns and caught 4-of-5 targets for four yards in the Browns' Week 16 win over the Chargers.

Crowell scored twice early from eight and four yards out to give the Browns a first-half lead. They never relinquished it, as Josh Lambo had a fourth-quarter field goal try blocked, then missed another field goal with time expiring. The Browns are now 1-14 and in a legitimate race with the tanking 49ers for the No. 1 overall pick. Expect Cleveland to get pasted in its Week 17 trip to Pittsburgh, putting the onus on San Francisco to lose out.
