Cleveland Browns

AFC North

Fantasy Impact: Garrett was activated from the COVID-19 list on Tuesday. He missed the last two weeks after the Browns placed Garrett on the reserve/COVID-19 list in mid-November. The 2017 No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft will give the Browns DST a huge boost to help contain Titans’ star RB Derrick Henry in Week 13’s matchup.

The Cleveland Browns defense turned in a quiet outing in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12. Cleveland was unable to force any turnovers and did not record a sack.

Fantasy Impact: The Browns got the win but it goes down as a disappointing outing as they faced off against quarterback Mike Glennon, who was making his first NFL start since 2017. Things will be even tougher in Week 13 against a dangerous Tennessee offense.

Cody Parkey hits two FGs

By Matthew Terelle

Cleveland Browns kicker Cody Parkey made both of his field goals in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Parkey also tacked on three extra points in as many attempts. The veteran kicker has been excellent for Cleveland this season, hitting 15 of 17 field goals. He will be a decent option in Week 13 against the Titans.

Cleveland Browns tight end Harrison Bryant caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant picked up 13 yards on his lone catch but lost a fumble at the end of the play. The rookie has now lost a fumble in two of his past four games. He will not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 13 against the Titans.

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught both of his targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Hooper salvaged an otherwise quiet fantasy day with a nine-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. The veteran tight end has now found the end zone twice in his first season with the Browns. He will be a top-15 fantasy tight end in Week 13 against the Titans.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge caught all three of his targets for 31 yards in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Hodge has emerged as a solid secondary option for Baker Mayfield since Odell Beckham Jr. was lost to a season-ending knee injury. That being said, Hodge will still not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 13 against the Titans.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins caught 1-of-2 targets for 15 yards in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: On his other target, Higgins got wide open in the end zone but was overthrown by Baker Mayfield on what should have been an easy touchdown toss. He will be a low-end flex option in Week 13 against the Titans.

Category: Game Recaps


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught 8-of-13 targets for 143 yards and a touchdown in a 27-25 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Landry managed his first 100-yard receiving game since Week 11 of last season in the win. It was a huge game for the veteran wideout, who made several tough catches in the contest. Landry will be a WR3 in fantasy in Week 13 against the Titans.

Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball 10 times for 62 yards in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Hunt was surprisingly shut out in the passing game as he failed to reel in either of his two targets. The veteran made up for that with a cool 6.2 yards per carry. He will be an RB2 in fantasy in Week 13 against the Titans.

Category: Game Recaps


Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 19 times for 144 yards and a touchdown in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: In a rare sight, Chubb was also active in the passing game, adding three receptions for 32 yards in the win. His touchdown came on a one-yard run in the third quarter. Chubb now has six scores in seven games. He will be a solid RB1 in fantasy in Week 13 against the Titans.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 19-of-29 passes for 258 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-25 win over the Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Mayfield threw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 7 in the win, although he could have had a third one had he not missed a wide-open Rashard Higgins in the end zone. Mayfield will be a decent QB2 option against a weak Tennessee secondary in Week 13.

Browns' CB Denzel Ward (calf) suffered a calf strain against the Eagles in Week 11 and is expected to miss a few weeks, per source. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ward is the latest Browns' defensive player to experience a setback after a great start to his 2020 season. The former Pro-Bowl CB has tallied 38 tackles, two interceptions and one forced fumble in ten games. The Browns D/ST will be without Ward and DE Myles Garrett but remain a viable fantasy option in Week 12 as they take on rookie QB Jake Luton and the 1-9 Jaguars.

David Njoku catchless in win

Sun, Nov 22nd 10:21pm EST
By Matthew Terelle

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku failed to catch his lone target in a 22-17 win over the Eagles in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: Njoku was targeted on the first play of the game but was unable to bring it in. It would have been a tough catch but it was a catchable ball from Baker Mayfield. Njoku is far off of the radar in fantasy leagues.

Browns RT Jack Conklin has been activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact: Great news for Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt, and Baker Mayfield fantasy managers as Conklin will be a great upgrade to their run game and pass protection. With weather conditions in Cleveland expected to be rainy with gusts of wind up to 20MPH in Week 11, it'd be no surprise if the Browns got the run game going early and often.

Browns OL Wyatt Teller (calf) is questionable for Week 11 against the Eagles. (Source: Jake Trotter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Teller should be okay to play after returning in Week 10. He has been one of the best guards in football this season, so his presence is important to Cleveland's running game.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught 2-of-2 targets for 16 yards in a 10-7 win over the Texans in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: Peoples-Jones finished fourth on the team in receiving on a windy afternoon where Cleveland only attempted 20 passes. The rookie out of Michigan has flashed a bit this season but he's nothing more than a dynasty stash in deeper leagues. He will face the Eagles in Week 11.

Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ACL) underwent successful surgery Tuesday and is expected to be ready for the 2021 season.

Fantasy Impact: The surgery to repair Beckham Jr.‘s ACL was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Florida. He’s expected to make a full recovery and be a full-go come training camp in 2021.

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson carried twice for six yards in a 16-6 loss to the Raiders in Week 8. He also added a five-yard catch.

Fantasy Impact: The Browns are heading into their bye in Week 9 and they expect to get Nick Chubb back for Week 10's matchup against Houston. Johnson is unlikely to see any work going forward, unless there's another injury.

Cleveland Browns running back Dontrell Hilliard carried the ball four times for 29 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Steelers in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Hilliard got all of his touches after the Browns threw in the towel in the fourth quarter. The young runner is not a fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Bengals.

Greedy Williams has been placed on IR with a nerve issue in his shoulder. (Source: Adam Shefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams does not need surgery but there is no official timetable for his return. Based on the IR designation, Williams would be eligible to return as soon as Week 9. Williams has yet to play a single snap in 2020. Terrance Mitchell will continue being his replacement.
