WR - FA
Week 3 Outlook
The Cleveland Browns released veteran receiver Brian Hartline on Monday.
The Cleveland Browns parted ways with Brian Hartline on Monday. Hartline played in 12 games in his only season with the Browns in 2015 and finished the year with 46 receptions, 523 yards and two touchdowns. Hartline will likely catch on with another team prior to the start of the regular season.
Hartline finishes the season with a 46/523/2 stat line on 73 targets. His absence as a downgrade for Johnny Manziel and the rest-of-season.
Cleveland is down to Terrelle Pryor and Dwayne Bowe playing behind Travis Benjamin.
Hartline will not return. He finished the day catching 8-of-10 targets for 107 yards.
Terrelle Pryor will see increased targets while Hartline is out.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Hartline caught eight passes for 83 yards against the Bengals in Week 13.
This is the fourth straight game in which Hartline has turned in a solid PPR performance. He should continue to be utilized as a mid-tier WR3 in PPR leagues as the Browns most consistent option in the passing game.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Hartline caught 4-of-10 targets for 32 yards and two touchdowns against the Cardinals in Week 8.
Facing one of the league's best secondaries, the two touchdowns were certainly a surprise. Still, it is hard to trust Hartline as more than an end-of-bench kind of player. Don't spend much time thinking about whether to start him next week against the Bengals.
