Isaiah Crowell to miss OTAs?

Cleveland Browns beat writer Tony Grossi is reporting running back Isaiah Crowell could skip all of the team's voluntary workouts due to his contract.

Fantasy Impact

Although Crowell signed his RFA tender last week, he has yet to report to voluntary workouts. The 24-year-old running back, who is likely holding out for a long-term deal, is still not expected to miss any of the team's mandatory sessions that begin in June. Barring a new contract, Crowell will hit the open free agent market in the 2018 offseason.

Isaiah Crowell signs RFA tender

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell has signed his RFA tender on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Crowell finally signed his RFA tender that was placed on him at the start of free agency. The 24-year-old running back is coming off of a 2016 season in which he produced career-high numbers in carries (198), yards rushing (952), YPC (4.8) 100-yard games (four) and touchdowns (seven). He also caught 40 targets for 319 yards, which were both career bests as well. Crowell will enter the 2017 season atop Cleveland's running back depth chart and is poised for another big year if his health remains intact. In three seasons as a pro, Crowell has never missed a game. From a fantasy football perspective, Crowell should flirt with the back-end RB1 tier to open the upcoming campaign. If the Browns' offense could show signs of life in the passing game, Crowell's upside as a rusher will be sky high. With only Duke Johnson on the roster as a threat to steal touches, Crowell is a legit breakout threat in 2017.

Isaiah Crowell tendered by Browns

The Cleveland Browns have placed a second-round tender on running back Isaiah Crowell worth $2.81 million.

Fantasy Impact

Crowell was tendered by the Browns Tuesday while the two sides attempt to negotiate a long-term deal. The impending fourth-year rusher is coming off of his best season as a pro in 2016. Playing in all 16 games, he accumulated 952 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground while catching 40 targets for 319 yards as a receiver. Crowell is poised to remain in Cleveland for years to come.

Isaiah Crowell, Browns contract talks break-down

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the contract talks between the Cleveland Browns and running back Isaiah Crowell, which were "heavy" during the regular season, have broken down and are in a "stalemate."

Fantasy Impact

Crowell, who had a career year in 2016, is an impending restricted free agent this offseason and is in line to cash in from the Browns, or on the open market. Playing in all 16 games, Crowell received 198 carries for 952 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, including four games of at least 100 yards rushing. He also caught a career high -- and it's not even close -- 40 targets for 319 yards receiving, making him a viable receiving threat out of the backfield. Being one of the few bright spots on Cleveland's offense since his rookie year in 2014, Crowell will likely remain with the team in 2017.

Isaiah Crowell rumbles for season-high in rushing yards

Isaiah Crowell had a big game against the Steelers in Week 17. The third-year back rushed 19 times for 152 yards and added three catches for 16 yards. The Steelers went on to beat Cleveland in overtime, 27-24.

Fantasy Impact

Crowell did most of his damage on a magnificent 67-yard run in the fourth quarter, bringing the Browns down to Pittsburgh's five-yard line. The touchdown was vultured on the next play by fellow running back George Atkinson III as Crowell tapped out for a well-earned breather. Crowell did lose a costly fumble near the goal line at the end of the fourth quarter which could have sealed the win for the Browns. As of now, he's expected to open 2017 as Cleveland's lead back.
