The Browns defense put up a dominant performance against the Jets in a 23-3 win in Week 2. Cleveland managed four sacks and forced one turnover.

Fantasy Impact: Myles Garrett picked up three sacks in the game to lead the way. The Cleveland defense played well, but it also came against backups Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk. They will have a much tougher test against the Rams in Week 3.

Cleveland Browns kicker Austin Seibert made all three of his field goals in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2. He also added two extra points.

Fantasy Impact: Seibert didn't attempt a field goal in Week 1 but it was good to see him hit all of his attempts on Monday night after a rough preseason. He has some upside on this Browns offense if he can keep hitting kicks. Cleveland faces the Rams in Week 3.

Cleveland Browns tight end Demetrius Harris caught a four-yard pass in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Harris saw a full workload with David Njoku leaving during the first quarter with a concussion. If Njoku isn't cleared in time for Week 3's game against the Rams, expect Harris to play most of the game.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Damion Ratley caught two passes for 50 yards in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Ratley operated as the No. 3 receiver with Rashard Higgins inactive. The second-year wideout wound up finishing second on the team in receiving yards. He now has four catches for 67 yards through two games.

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson carried the ball three times for eight yards and added three catches for 42 yards in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson played the No. 2 role behind Nick Chubb with Dontrell Hilliard dealing with a concussion. He would presumably do the same in Week 3 against the Rams if Hilliard doesn't get cleared in time.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught 3-of-7 targets for 32 yards in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Landry had a quiet game, with his longest reception of 25 yards coming with Odell Beckham Jr. on the sidelines getting checked out by the trainer. With Beckham in town, there is a legitimate concern for Landry's output going forward. He now has just seven catches for 99 yards through two games. He will be a WR4 in Week 3 against the Rams.

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 18 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: He also added four catches for 36 yards in the win. Chubb's touchdown run was impressive as he weaved through the defense and broke a few tackles on his way to the end zone. Chubb now has 137 rushing yards, a touchdown, seven catches, and 46 receiving yards through two games. He will look to find the end zone again in Week 3 against the Rams.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught 6-of-10 targets for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham hauled in a 33-yard reception on the first drive and then ripped off an impressive 89-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. The star receiver now has 13 catches for 232 yards and a touchdown through two games. He will be a WR1 again in Week 3 against the Rams.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 19-of-35 passes for 325 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Mayfield got the win but the Cleveland offense still isn't firing on all cylinders. His touchdown pass was an 89-yarder to Odell Beckham in the third quarter. Mayfield now has 610 passing yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions through two games. He will face the Rams in Week 3.

Jamal Adams was limited to just five solo tackles and a TFL in a MNF loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact: The number one ranked safety on FantasyPros has started off the 2019 season with two underwhelming games in terms of fantasy production. Perhaps a matchup with the New England Patriots will cure his woes.

Christian Kirksey posted only four total tackles in a win against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Kirksey has not had a big game through the early goings of this season, as his teammate, Joe Schobert, has been the one posting double-digit figures. Kirksey looks to get back on track this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Category: Game Recaps


Joe Schobert racked up ten solo tackles and three individual tackles, as well as one TFL.

Fantasy Impact: Schobert led his team for the second week in a row in solo and total tackles. He is among the best LB's in terms in of fantasy production and should remain in your lineups this Sunday.

Myles Garrett showed up on primetime, as he totaled five tackles, three sacks, and five QB hits.

Fantasy Impact: Garrett was playing on another level tonight and could have recorded an even more impressive line had he not been flagged so many times. Regardless, Garrett is an elite play with five sacks on the season and will look to add to that total against the Rams this Sunday.

Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas left Monday night's game against the Cleveland Browns with a hamstring injury and will not return, according to reports.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas had a hamstring leading up to Monday night's game and apparently aggravated the injury. He was not targeted in the game before exiting. Look for an update on his status on Tuesday, but expect him to miss Week 3 against the Patriots.

Dolphins defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has been traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a first-round pick, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It was reported earlier in the day that multiple teams were interested in trading for Fitzpatrick, and the Steelers were able to swing a deal by sending the Dolphins a first-round pick. The Dolphins are openly tanking at this point, and a first-round pick from the 0-2 Steelers, who just lost Ben Roethlisberger for the season, was too much value for them to pass up.

Jalen Ramsey has requested a trade from the Jaguars. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: A confrontation between coach Doug Marrone and Ramsey during Sunday's loss in Houston, led to Ramsey making an aforementioned trade request. It has been reported that Jacksonville has "spoken with interested teams." In the end, though, the organization likely will have to be blown away to move on from the All-Pro cornerback. Ramsey had put up four tackles and one pass deflection in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Texans.
