Player News - Browns

Date: Team: Pos:

Browns MLB Joe Schobert (hamstring) is week to week.

It's a big loss for the Browns' slumping defense, as the third-year pro has improved on last year while remaining an every-down player. Liability James Burgess is the next man up, but he is battling a hamstring pull of his own.
Oct 15 - 2:46 PM

Speaking Monday, Browns coach Hue Jackson once again claimed he would work to get Nick Chubb more carries.

"We do need to get Nick Chubb more carries," was Jackson's exact quote. He said the same thing two weeks away and has proceeded to give Chubb the ball six times over the past two games. With Carlos Hyde averaging just 3.35 yards per carry, perhaps Jackson means it this time. Chubb remains worth holding in 12-team leagues.
Oct 15 - 2:45 PM

Speaking Monday, Browns coach Hue Jackson confirmed Baker Mayfield's ankle injury won't affect his Week 7 status.

"Baker's fine," Jackson said. Mayfield could get a "limited" tag or two in practice, but he will be out there for his dream Week 7 matchup with the Bucs. The problem is not Mayfield's health but his supporting cast. Mayfield has precious few weapons to throw the ball to. Even still, he's very much on the streaming radar this week.
Oct 15 - 2:38 PM

Browns placed WR Rod Streater on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Scarily, Streater has a broken bone in his neck. He does not require surgery, and the Browns expect a full recovery. Streater is not an impact player, but the Browns' receiver corps has been made laughably thin by injuries and trade. Any loss is a big loss.
Oct 15 - 1:50 PM

Baker Mayfield (ankle) is expected to play Week 7 against the Bucs.

Mayfield suffered a nasty looking ankle injury against the Chargers, but he played through it the rest of the game. He will need "treatment" this week, but he is expected to be fine for Sunday. In a great matchup against the Bucs, Mayfield will be a back-end QB1.
Oct 15 - 10:55 AM

Damion Ratley caught 6-of-8 targets for 82 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

The sixth-round pick from Texas A&M was forced to step up into a large role in the Cleveland passing game with all of the injuries the Browns have sustained at the wide receiver position. His productive game came in game in which Jarvis Landry caught just two passes, so it should be taken with some degree of salt. That said, the Browns will still be without Rishard Higgins for a the short term and Antonio Callaway has proven to be an unreliable option. Ratley is only an option in the deepest of leagues, but the Browns face a terrible Tampa Bay defense on the road in Week 7 for those that must dig that deep.
Oct 14 - 7:44 PM

Nick Chubb rushed three times for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Chubb once again showed off his explosion with a 19-yard scamper which would have been longer had there not been a holding downfield, but once again the Browns failed to use him in the game. Chubb has now carried the ball three times or less in every game this season. He is only a bench stash at this point and needs an injury to have fantasy relevancy.
Oct 14 - 5:24 PM

Antonio Callaway caught 2-of-10 targets for nine yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Callaway once again struggled with missed opportunities as he lost a potential 45-yard touchdown in the sun in the first quarter and then had another straight drop on a potential long-gainer in the second half. He did secure a two-point conversion after the Browns' lone touchdown on the day. Callaway will continue to be force-fed targets as Cleveland has limited healthy bodies available at the wide receiver position, but he has caught just 8-of-24 targets over the past three weeks 85 yards. Callaway will be an all-or-nothing option against a giving Tampa Bay defense in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 5:20 PM

Duke Johnson rushed twice for 36 yards while catching 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

This was by far Johnson's best game of the season, adding three plays of over 20 yards on the day with the highlight being a 32-yard catch and run. Despite the big day in producing yardage, Johnson still only managed six touches, giving him six or fewer touches in every game this season. Johnson is a risky-FLEX play Week 7 against the Buccaneers with his current volume levels.
Oct 14 - 5:13 PM

David Njoku caught 7-of-12 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Njoku found the end zone for the first time this season in the 4th quarter on a 1-yard touchdown pass with the game way out of hand. It was Njoku's first red zone target on the season. After a season-high 11 targets last week, Njoku received 12 more looks on Sunday, giving him 30 total targets over Baker Mayfield's three starts. Njoku is in a dream spot next week against a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed the most receiving yards per game to opposing tight ends to begin the season.
Oct 14 - 5:06 PM

Jarvis Landry caught 2-of-9 targets for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Landry was stymied by the Chargers secondary all afternoon. His two receptions were the fewest he's had in a game since Week 14 of the 2015 season. Landry has struggled in the transition over to Baker Mayfield catching 11-of-29 targets for 114 yards over Mayfield's three starts. Despite those lowly numbers, Landry will be in a spot to bounce back against a giving Tampa Bay secondary in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 5:01 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 34 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Hyde has now failed to score in back-to-back games and it has exposed the low floor he carries weekly. Hyde has rushed for 4.0 yards per carry in just once game this season and has rushed 31 times for 97 yards over the past two weeks. His biggest obstacle for maintaining a fantasy floor is he has just six catches on the season and was not even targeted in the passing game on Sunday. Hyde will enter Week 7 as a touchdown-dependent RB2 option in Week 7 on the road in Tampa Bay.
Oct 14 - 4:56 PM

Baker Mayfield completed 22-of-46 passes for 238 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Mayfield added eight yards rushing on two carries. Sunday was the first game in which Mayfield looked like a rookie as he threw two interceptions on late throws. He was under constant pressure, taking five sacks in the game and was constantly moved off his spot by the Charger pass rush. Mayfield's lone touchdown came on a 1-yard cosmetic score to David Njoku in garbage time. Despite his struggles today, Mayfield will be a popular streaming option Week 7 on the road versus the Buccaneers.
Oct 14 - 4:51 PM

Browns MLB Joe Schobert was forced from Sunday's Week 6 game versus the Chargers with a hamstring injury.

Schobert grabbed his leg running down a play in the third quarter. The third-year pro was a strong contributor to a better-than-advertised Browns defense to begin the season. He had played every single defensive snap on the season to date before the injury. James Burgess has replaced him in the lineup.
Oct 14 - 3:22 PM

Browns declared WR Breshad Perriman, QB Drew Stanton, CB Tavierre Thomas, LB Tanner Vallejo (concussion), OL Earl Watford, WR Rashard Higgins (knee) and DL Carl Davis inactive for Sunday's Week 6 game versus the Chargers.

Perriman was signed on Saturday after the Browns lost Rishard Higgins for a few weeks due to a sprained MCL and placed Derek Willies on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. The Browns will enter Sunday with Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway, Rod Streater and Damion Ratley available in Week 6 against the Chargers.
