Derek Brown
FantasyPros
 Samaje Perine should still be considered the primary backup to Joe Mixon despite social media's obsession with Chris Evans. Perine has done nothing over the last two seasons to lose the role as he's been excellent when called upon. Since 2020 he's ranked fourth and 18th in yards after contact per attempt (minimum 50 carries, per PFF). Last year he also finished 31st in yards per route run among running backs (minimum 20 targets, per PFF). While Evans might arguably be the better passing down back, if Mixon were to go down, Perine would own the early down work with the upside to take all the action.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Amari Cooper finished last season 27th in half-PPR per game (11.2), which was in line with his career average. There is hope that he can provide a higher floor as the clear No. 1 wide receiver in Cleveland. And that floor will be accompanied by an extremely high ceiling with Deshaun Watson entrenched under center over the final 10 games of the season. The ex-Texans quarterback fueled top fantasy WR finishes for the likes of Brandin Cooks (WR16, 2020) and Will Fuller (WR8/game, 2020) the last time he played. And prior to that, he supplemented DeAndre Hopkins as the fantasy WR4 and WR10 from 2018-2019. However, the boom-or-bust nature to his game will likely remain a staple of his game. Having Brissett over the first six weeks - alongside a projectable run-heavy offense - will make Cooper inconsistent. Although Brissett can prove to be serviceable, he is a significant downgrade compared to Dak Prescott. If Cooper only managed to finish as WR27 in 15 games with Prescott, it's hard to be optimistic about him as the Browns WR1 or your fantasy WR2. There's also a glaring issue of the indoor/outdoor splits that Cooper has posted during his career. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Cooper's value hinges on DeShaun Watson's suspension. If Watson gets suspended for most of the season, Cooper's outlook takes a nosedive. QB Jacoby Brissett is more of a game manager than a gunslinger. And Cleveland is a run-oriented offense as it is. WR 22 is way too high for a WR on Browns' offense that figures to struggle this year. Keep an eye on Watson's suspension news this summer. Once we know for certain if and when he'll be back in 2022, that's when we can more accurately predict Browns' players. Until then- avoid! 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooper had only 97 targets, 63 receptions, 786 yards, and eight touchdowns in the 2021 fantasy season. Cooper is now a Brown and while he will have upside catching balls from Deshaun Watson, that will not happen for at least the first six games due to Watson's suspension being appealed. That makes Cooper a low upside WR3 with WR2 upside later in the season. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
8/3: 8/3: Up-and-down we go. Now the NFL Appeals & will push for season-long suspension, most expect it to stick. I'm ranking as if Watson won't play in 2022 until told otherwise - wish is a huge downgrade for Cooper, Njoku, Chubb, Hunt, everyone. Avoid CLE. 8/1: The ruling is in: 6 games. As absurd as that is, it gives Watson & his pass-catchers a whole lot more appeal, greatly raising all their ceilings for the last 2/3rds of the season (Cooper, DPJ, Njoku) 7/19: Wastson's suspension likely being 8 or under significantly raises the appeal of ALL Browns Pass-catchers, especially Cooper *UPDATEx 3 (6/8) - Liklihood of major DW Suspension coming, potentially for full year. Cooper takes a huge hit with dramatic drop in QB play & likely huge schematic shifts
