Terrance West said his goal is to enter next season weighing 215 pounds.
West played at 228 pounds last year. It's always good to hear about weight loss from running backs, and there's no doubt West could benefit from adding speed to his game. A strong offseason has potential to make West the favorite for touches over Isaiah Crowell. The Browns want to make West a "larger part of the pass game" in 2015. Feb 7 - 2:35 PM

Terrance West rushed 18 times for 94 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Ravens.

The Browns' running-back roller coaster continues. After zero touches Week 16, West started and saw 20 touches against the Ravens while fellow rookie Isaiah Crowell was limited to just five looks. West finishes the season with a respectable 171 rushes for 673 yards and four scores, but he was also held under 10 touches in eight contests including two in which he did not see the ball at all. West is a talented runner in what should be a solid rushing attack in 2015, but he will be a risky fantasy option unless the backfield rotation in Cleveland becomes more clearly defined.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Terrance West will start against the Ravens in Week 17.

Literally laughing out loud. This comes a week after West played zero snaps because of poor practice habits. But he's getting the nod over Isaiah Crowell. It'll be hard not to fire up the Ravens defense anywhere and everywhere in fantasy. The Ravens need a win, and the Browns will trot out UDFA Connor Shaw at quarterback, West in the backfield, and be without Josh Gordon.

Coach Mike Pettine said a poor week of practice was the reason Terrance West played zero snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

West went from starting the previous two weeks to playing behind Shaun Draughn Sunday. The third-round rookie has been in and out of the doghouse all season, highlighted by a healthy scratch in Week 6 and a 26-94-1 performance in Week 10. Pettine is earning a reputation in fantasy circles as an unpredictable coach when it comes to usage.

Terrance West didn't touch the football in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Panthers.

Isaiah Crowell (16-55) was the Browns' lead ball carrier, while Shaun Draughn played ahead of West in third-down situations. West's deletion from the Browns' offense was not foreseeable, and his usage going forward is unknown. The Browns will close out the season against the Ravens in Week 17.

Terrance West rushed five times for 23 yards in the Browns' Week 15 loss to the Bengals.

For the second-straight week, West actually got the "start" over Isaiah Crowell, but it again proved ceremonial. The duo rotated, and Crowell out-touched West 7-5, out-gaining him 27-23. The Browns are clearly committed to a timeshare at running back, but West will be hard to trust as a FLEX option against the Panthers in the fantasy finals.

Terrance West rushed 15 times for 54 yards in the Browns' Week 14 loss to the Colts.

West surprisingly got the start over Isaiah Crowell despite last week's fumble-six. West operated as Cleveland's primary back for most of the first half, but was replaced in the red zone by Crowell, who scored from nine yards out late in the second quarter. Ultimately, it was an even rotation with West finishing at 15 carries and Crowell 14. Neither was involved in the passing game. West will be a shaky flex option in Week 15 against the Bengals.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Friday that "there's a chance" Terrance West will be a healthy scratch in Week 14.

Pettine fumed after West lost a fumble that Bills DE Jerry Hughes returned for a touchdown in last week's loss. Pettine did say West had a productive week of practice. We would expect West to be active for the game, but his usage is a major question mark. He can't be trusted as a flex play this week.

Coach Mike Pettine blasted Terrance West for his fumble during Sunday's loss at Buffalo.

The Browns were down just 7-3 in the third quarter when West coughed up the football and Jerry Hughes returned it for a touchdown. The final score was 26-10. "You can't be that loose with the football, it's inexcusable," Pettine said. "West really changed the whole flow of the game. ... Close games are going to come down to turnovers. Like I said, the West fumble changed everything. It's inexcusable." This blunder will only strengthen Isaiah Crowell's grip on the feature back job heading into a Week 14 home game against the Colts.

Terrance West rushed seven times for 32 yards in Cleveland's Week 13 loss to the Bills, adding a four-yard reception while also losing a fumble.

West's day was much worse than the box score makes it appear, as 18 of his yards came on a pointless final carry, while his cough up was housed for a Bills touchdown. West also lost a second fumble, but it was overturned on review. West is settling in as a distant No. 2 to Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart, though he could retain FLEX consideration if the Browns turn to Johnny Manziel at quarterback. Johnny Football would open up running lanes for Cleveland's backs.

Terrance West rushed 14 times for 62 yards in Cleveland's Week 12 win over the Falcons, adding a nine-yard reception.

West led the Browns' backfield in touches, notching 15 to Isaiah Crowell's 12. Crowell won the yardage and touchdown battles, however, notching 88 and two, respectively. West was lucky he got as much run as he did, as he ran the wrong play on his first snap, and fumbled on his second. But the Browns stuck with their two-headed rushing attack, and it paid off with another huge day on the ground. West is the clear second fiddle to Crowell, but his workloads make him a weekly FLEX option.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 04:53:00 PM

Terrance West managed 12 yards on five carries in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

He was not targeted in the passing game. The Browns installed Isaiah Crowell as their feature back against the Texans, and he proceeded to outplay both West and Ben Tate, the latter of whom finished with -9 yards on two carries. West had been the Browns' lead back in their previous two games. West is a solid back, but lacks Crowell's talent. He will be a dicey and ultimately undesirable flex option when Cleveland faces Atlanta's defense in Week 12.

Updating a previous item, Terrance West took the first rep with the Browns' starting offense during Sunday's pre-game warmups.

Despite multiple reports the Browns will start Isaiah Crowell against the Texans, the team announced no lineup changes, and still lists Ben Tate atop the depth chart, with West handling first-team reps before the game. This situation is as unpredictable as it gets from a fantasy standpoint. The Browns' coaching staff likely doesn't even know who will get the bulk of the workload.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi passes along "word" that Isaiah Crowell is starting this week because he had the best week of practice among the Browns' running backs.

It's a reminder that Cleveland's backfield rotation is the most unpredictable in the league. The team is setting the depth chart based on practice performance. If Crowell struggles early or puts the ball on the ground, he could be yanked at a moment's notice. He does offer the highest ceiling among the running back corps, with Terrance West and Ben Tate rotating in.

Coach Mike Pettine declined to announce a starting running back for Sunday's game against the Texans.

We suspect it will be Terrance West after he started in Week 10 and put up a 26-94-1 line as the Browns routed the Bengals. Pettine brushed off Ben Tate's recent whining, again saying West had earned the starting role. "There will be times when we have to choose as a staff what we feel is best for the team, over what the individual feels is best for him — and this is an example of that," the coach said. West is the best bet here, but owners just need to know the leash is short in this RBBC. Not even the players know how the workload will be distributed going into the games.
