Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/20/18 5:31am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee), who is questionable with a knee injury in Week 3, is expected to play Thursday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Landry has caught 12 balls for 75 yards in two games, and he'll be facing a midrange defense against the position in the New York Jets. Landry is a low-end WR2 in PPR leagues.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/20/18 9:50am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 3 contest against the New York Jets on Thursday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: If Landry's active, you're rolling with him as a WR2, but, if not, it's the first game of the week and you'll have ample time to get a Plan B together. Rookie Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins would serve as the Browns' top wideouts if Landry can't go.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/20/18 10:10am ET
Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) will be active and play Thursday, Sept. 20, against the New York Jets, according to beat writer Mary Kay Cabot.
Huddle Up: Of course double check the pre-game inactive list to be sure, but have Landry in your lineup as a WR2 for now as the Browns move forward in the post-Josh Gordon Era.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/20/18 1:45pm ET
New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Gordon joined the team earlier this week and probably would see limited snaps if he is active for Week 3. He has the ability to make big plays in the passing game and could be a flex option in some leagues.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 9/20/18 7:09pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (head) was diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to the game in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Taylor was not sharp before departing, going 4-of-14 for 19 yards while adding 22 yards on four carries. No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield came on after Taylor got hurt and will lead the Browns for the remainder of the game.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 9/20/18 9:13pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) went 4-for-14 for 19 yards in just under a half of action on Thursday, Sept. 20, against the New York Jets. Taylor did carry the ball four times for 22 yards prior to suffering a concussion.
Huddle Up: You have to think that, barring injury to Baker Mayfield, this is the end of Taylor's abbreviated stint as Cleveland's starter. While he made some plays with his legs, Taylor was pretty bad as a passer in Weeks 1 and 3, making it tough to sell starting him ahead of Mayfield to the fan base. If you're carrying Taylor on your roster as a backup you should start checking the waiver wire for a potential replacement.
Baker Mayfield - QBPosted 9/20/18 9:02pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9 percent) for 201 yards against the New York Jets on Thursday, Sept. 20. Mayfield entered the game late in the second quarter after QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) suffered a concussion.
Huddle Up: There are a few cliches that spring to mind, but with apologies to Mike Tyson's "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth," we're going to go with you can't put the genie back in the bottle again. Yes, Cleveland's "plan" was to sit Mayfield and let Taylor start this season, but after Thursday night it's hard to imagine the job isn't Mayfield's going forward. While there's little doubt Hue Jackson will slow-play the formal announcement, Mayfield simply looked much better under center (Taylor was 4-for-14 before exiting, and the team was down 14 points). Whether he'll produce fantasy-relevant numbers remains to be seen, but if you have a strong starter Mayfield could hold some appeal due to his upside.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 9/20/18 9:24pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Carlos Hyde carried the ball 23 times for 98 yards (4.3 YPC) and two touchdowns during the team's win over the New York Jets in Week 3. Hyde added a pair of receptions for five yards.
Huddle Up: Remember all that talk of a three-headed monster in the backfield or "riding the hot hand"? Yeah, not so much. Through three games, Hyde has 65 touches, Duke Johnson has 15, and Nick Chubb has seven. Hyde's 3.3 yards per carry are underwhelming, but he has four touchdowns and is the current bell cow. While there are questions about his ability to sustain this kind of workload, Hyde is currently the back to own in Cleveland and a solid RB3.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/19/18 11:44am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is questionable for Week 3 after being limited in practice all week.
Huddle Up: Landry should play, but check in before kickoff tomorrow just to make sure. As long as he's not on a limited snap count then he needs to be in starting lineups.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/19/18 2:10pm ET
New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Gordon was just acquired earlier this week, so he is likely to have a rather limited knowledge of the playbook. While he could be a valuable fantasy asset working with Tom Brady down the road, it's unrealistic to believe he'll make an immediate impact in Week 3.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/18/18 11:30am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) was a limited practice participant Tuesday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: As long as Landry has no setbacks tomorrow he should be on the field Thursday night. With Josh Gordon gone, Landry is unequivocally the Browns' biggest receiving threat. As such, treat him as a low-end PPR WR1 to high-end PPR WR2.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/17/18 5:29am ET
Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) has received interest from eight to 10 teams about acquiring him, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gordon should still be rostered, but it may be a few weeks for him to have an impact with his new team depending on how serious the hamstring injury is.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/17/18 12:12pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is close to being traded to the New England Patriots, according to a source. There is no official agreement, but signs are positive.
Huddle Up: The Patriots need a wide receiver, especially for the next two weeks while Julian Edelman finishes his suspension. Gordon is one of the most talented receivers in the league, but his off-field struggles are well documented. If/when he does sign, it's best to wait a week before starting him in order to see how the Patriots use him and how much he plays.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/17/18 1:30pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was traded to the New England Patriots Monday, Sept. 17, in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to sources. If Gordon is not active for 10 games the Patriots will receive a late-round pick.
Huddle Up: With Gordon gone Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway, Rashard Higgins and David Njoku will all benefit. Higgins and Callaway should be available on waivers and are both worth picking up. Landry maintains his status as a low-end PPR WR1 to high-end PPR WR2.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/17/18 1:25pm ET
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was acquired by the New England Patriots Monday, Sept. 17, in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to sources. If Gordon is not active for 10 games the Patriots will receive a late-round pick.
Huddle Up: The fresh start Gordon needed has arrived quickly. Gordon's presence all but eliminates Phillip Dorsett's value. As stated earlier, Gordon may need some time to acclimate to his new team, so he's not startable right away. Once he's seeing regular snaps he'll be a WR3 consideration.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/17/18 4:53pm ET
New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) will be healthy enough to play in the team's Week 3 game, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gordon will need to learn a new offense but should still have a role this week against the Detroit Lions. Owners could consider him at least a flex option in leagues but should not expect big numbers.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/17/18 4:46pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) was listed as a limited participant for practice Monday, Sept. 17 due to a knee issue.
Huddle Up: The team did not conduct a practice and the participation is just an estimate with the quick turnaround before Thursday's Week 3 game against the New York Jets. We'll get a better idea of Landry's status Tuesday, when the team conducts a full practice. He should be fine, and remains a solid fantasy option across the board, particularly in PPR formats.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/16/18 8:06am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is interested in joining the Dallas Cowboys in a possible trade or a free-agent signing, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gordon likely would be the top receiving option if he joins the Cowboys over the next week. His potential makes him a No. 2 receiver in all leagues as long as he does not have any off-field problems.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/16/18 8:05am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is interested in joining the San Francisco 49ers in a possible trade or a free-agent signing, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gordon will be with another team next week and likely would be a top three receiver for the 49ers if he joins them. He is a risky option because of his off-field issues but can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues because of his potential.
Antonio Callaway - WRPosted 9/16/18 1:17pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway caught three passes for 81 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Callaway will be receiving more playing time with the team getting rid of Josh Gordon, so he will be a popular waiver pickup this week. He will not be a weekly starting option but can be used against favorable matchups.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 9/16/18 1:02pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor went 22-for-30 for 246 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He also rushed for 26 yards on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Taylor improved on his passing numbers from Week 1 but did not have a great performance. He will be facing an improved New York Jets defense in Week 3 and probably should be kept on the bench in most leagues.
David Njoku - TEPosted 9/16/18 1:34pm ET
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught four passes for 20 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Njoku may receive some more targets during game moving forward but should only be a No. 2 tight end for owners at this point.
Rashard Higgins - WRPosted 9/16/18 1:29pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins caught five passes for 47 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Higgins likely will move up the depth chart and be the No. 3 receiver for the Browns with Josh Gordon leaving. Owners can consider adding him as a depth receiver, but he likely will not be in the starting lineup often.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/16/18 1:22pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry caught five passes for 69 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Landry continues to be a valuable option for owners in point-per-reception leagues because of the number of catches he has each week. He can continue to be a No. 3 receiver for owners next week against the New York Jets.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/15/18 10:53am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) has been ruled out for the team's Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Gordon was able to play in Week 1 but appears to have aggravated his hamstring injury. Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway probably will receive more playing time but neither is a must-start in fantasy leagues. Jarvis Landry and David Njoku are the only Browns pass catchers that could be in most fantasy lineups.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/15/18 4:38pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be released Monday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Gordon has had his share of off-field issues, but this move comes out of relatively nowhere. He had already been ruled out for Week 2, but one wonders if he's struggling with non-football issues more than he's let on. In the meantime, Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway will see more repetitions at wide receiver, but the Browns could bring back Dez Bryant for another visit. If there's nothing deeper to be delved from the release, then perhaps another team will give Gordon, who is still only 27 years old, another chance.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/14/18 12:48pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Landry was targeted 15 times in Week 1 and should continue to be a reliable option in the Browns passing game. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all leagues.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/13/18 2:59pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (thigh) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 13.
Huddle Up: Landry will be able to play in Week 2 and should continue to see a solid amount of targets in the passing game. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in all leagues.
Jarvis Landry - WRPosted 9/12/18 3:24pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (thigh) was listed as full participant in practice on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: Landry was dealing with some sort of a thigh injury, but he appears to be on track for Week 2. He was a nice security blanket for Tyrod Taylor in Week 1, racking up his usual high number of receptions with plenty of yards. He could have another big performance in Week 2 under the dome against a New Orleans team trampled for 48 points in their opening game loss.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 9/11/18 11:17am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is listed as a starter opposite WR Jarvis Landry heading into Week 2.
Huddle Up: Gordon saw just three targets in his long-awaited return, but his lone catch was a touchdown. Those three targets will assuredly increase this week, especially in what should be a positive game script for the passing game versus the New Orleans Saints. Don't start Gordon as a WR1 just yet, though. He's more serviceable as a low-end WR2 or flex.
