Browns | Josh Gordon has worked down weight

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 20:28:53 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon added approximately 30 pounds more than his playing weight, according to S Donte Whitner, but he said the receiver has whipped himself back into shape. Gordon has applied for reinstatement into the NFL and is awaiting word from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon can be a tremendous fantasy asset when he is on the field, and he is a bit of an X factor going into 2016. If he can return to his 2013 form when he had 87 receptions, 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns, he would obviously be an early-round fantasy selection. But you simply cannot risk it early on draft day with his checkered history. He had just 24 grabs before running aground in 2014, and missed the entire 2015 season, so it's been a while since we've seen 'good' Gordon.

Browns | Three Browns in concussion protocol

Tue, 03 Nov 2015 14:51:41 -0800

Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden (concussion), S Donte Whitner (concussion) and WR Brian Hartline (concussion) are all going through the league's concussion protocol and aren't expected to play in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: On a short week it's tough for any player to receive clearance through the league's concussion protocol. With Johnny Manziel expected to start against the Bengals, Travis Benjamin ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is probably the only Browns offensive player worth considering as a flex play on FantasyScore. Benjamin has developed considerable chemistry with Johnny Football on the deep ball.
