Date: Team: Pos:

Browns DT Jamie Meder has a high-ankle sprain.

Meder has played only 178 snaps this season, but his loss comes the same week Emmanuel Ogbah went down for the season with a broken foot. The Browns' defense could begin to spring some run game vulnerabilities. They'll be facing Joe Mixon and the Bengals this week.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said he will stick with DeShone Kizer as his starting quarterback the rest of the season.

Kizer had another turnover-filled game against the Jaguars on Sunday, but Jackson is not going to send him to the bench like he did several times earlier in the season. "Where we are right now, I need to continue to see him," Jackson said. "I want to walk away from this season knowing exactly what DeShone Kizer is top to bottom. He deserves that." As long as Kizer is under center, the opposing defensive unit will be a good fantasy option. That will be the Bengals this week.

Browns DE Emmanuel Ogbah is done for the season with a broken foot.

He'll undergo surgery, and is expected to be sidelined 3-4 months. Coach Hue Jackson made the disclosure in his post-game presser. A 2016 second-rounder, Ogbah entered Week 11 tied with Myles Garrett for the team lead in sacks (four). A liability as a rookie, Ogbah had been improved as a sophomore. He should be ready for 2018 training camp.

Ricardo Louis caught 1-of-4 targets for 15 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.

Louis was well behind Corey Coleman, getting out-targeted 11-4. With Josh Gordon set to return in Week 13, Louis' extremely limited fantasy value is officially nonexistent.
Nov 19 - 7:02 PM

David Njoku caught 1-of-1 targets for 13 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.

Today was the first time all season Njoku drew fewer than two targets. It remains impossible to predict when Njoku might tap his theoretical upside in the Browns' putrid offense.
Nov 19 - 7:01 PM

Corey Coleman caught 6-of-11 targets for 80 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.

Coleman led the Browns in every receiving category, and was treated like the No. 1 receiver the Browns need him to be, at least until Josh Gordon returns in Week 13. Even with DeShone Kizer playing truly horrendous ball under center, Coleman should offer WR4 value, even with bye weeks over.
Nov 19 - 6:24 PM

Isaiah Crowell rushed 11 times for 18 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.

Crowell wasn't targeted as a receiver. Crowell entered the week on a mini-hot streak by his 2017 standards, but had nowhere to go with the Jags free to tee off on the running game as DeShone Kizer presented zero threat under center. The Browns have remained completely committed to Crowell on early downs. He'll be a workload-based RB3 for Week 12 vs. the Bengals. With bye weeks over, Crowell will rarely offer RB2 value.
Nov 19 - 6:20 PM

Duke Johnson caught 4-of-6 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Jaguars, adding two carries for 10 yards.

Johnson was the lone bright spot in yet another dispiriting Browns loss. His 27-yard score in the second quarter was perhaps DeShone Kizer's only well placed ball of the afternoon. Johnson was in the slot as the Browns went four verticals. Johnson will be a bottom-barrel RB3 for Week 12 against the Bengals.
Nov 19 - 6:20 PM

DeShone Kizer completed 16-of-32 passes for 179 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Browns' 19-7, Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.

Kizer also lost two fumbles, the second of which the Jaguars housed for a game-sealing score. The first should have also been housed, but referee Pete Morelli's crew made an awful call, blowing the play dead. Kizer was truly, truly dreadful, air mailing passes — including both his interceptions — while showing close to zero pocket awareness. It's what he's done all season, but coach Hue Jackson said afterward he will stick with Kizer for Week 12. Be sure to tee up the Bengals' defense against the Browns.
Nov 19 - 4:37 PM

Browns DE Emmanuel Ogbah was forced from Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a foot injury, and will not return.

Ogbah went down in the first half, and was ruled out after the break. Ogbah's four sacks tied him for the team lead entering Week 11. Carl Nassib is on in Ogbah's absence.
Nov 19 - 2:53 PM

Corey Coleman (hand) is active for Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Coleman is back from a seven-game absence and will immediately take over as the Browns' lead receiver. DL Caleb Brantley, DB Darius Hillary, QB Kevin Hogan, TE Matt Lengel, OL Marcus Martin, DL T.Y. McGill and WR Bryce Treggs round out Cleveland's inactives for Week 11.
Nov 19 - 11:41 AM

Kenny Britt (knee) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Britt scored a touchdown last week, though he only managed two catches for 38 yards in a loss to Detroit. Going against a loaded Jaguars secondary, Britt should be avoided in all fantasy formats this week.
Nov 17 - 3:17 PM

Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Crowell didn't see his usual practice reps this week but there was never any concern about his availability for Sunday. Coming off his two best games of the season, Crowell will be a borderline RB2 against Jacksonville.
Nov 17 - 2:31 PM

DeShone Kizer (ribs) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Kizer began the week limited at practice but advanced to full sessions on Thursday and Friday. Already a weekly threat to be benched, Kizer will be running into a buzz saw Sunday against a punishing Jags secondary.
Nov 17 - 2:30 PM

Isaiah Crowell (shoulder) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Crowell is going to play through the issue against the Jaguars. He's on the RB2/3 borderline for Week 11.
