RB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
The Browns are declining fullback Andy Janovich's contract option for the 2022 season, according to Ian Rapoport. He'll become a free agent when the legal tampering period commences next week.
Janovich is one of the best fullbacks in the NFL, but the dying nature of the position prompted Cleveland to part ways with him. He registered just five total touches for nine yards and a touchdown through 13 games in 2021 but added additional value as a blocker. His contract option for 2022 was worth roughly $1.5 million. Instead, he'll hit free agency where the other 31 teams can bid for his services. Meanwhile, the Browns will proceed with Johnny Stanton IV taking over as their fullback.
Broncos fullback Andy Janovich (pectoral) is inactive for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.
Janovich has just three career touchdowns over his three seasons in the league, so he is not relevant in fantasy formats unless he suddenly begins vulturing touchdowns in Denver.
Andy Janovich did not see a carry or target in Denver's 29-17 preseason win over the Redskins Friday night.
Janovich was huge as a blocker for the Broncos Friday, helping to spring Royce Freeman on his 24-yard touchdown run. He will not see the enough touches to be fantasy relevant this season.
Andy Janovich had one carry for 28 yards and a score in the Broncos' win over the Panthers on Thursday night.
Gary Kubiak believes in his system and it showed Thursday night. FB Andy Janovich was an effective blocker for the Broncos' running backs all game and even found the end zone with his first NFL carry. Janovich does not carry any fantasy value however, he could take away a few touchdowns this season.
