Browns | To use committee at running back

Sat, 28 Jun 2014 14:35:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Terrance West and Dion Lewis will be amongst a running back committee, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "I think in the AFC North, you have to be running back by committee," Pettine said. "You'd like to have a guy that can carry most of the load, but also be able to alternate guys... you've got to be able to get fresh legs out there."

Fantasy Tip: Tate should see the lion's share of the workload, but West has vaulted himself into RB3 or RB4 material. He could be leaned on heavily as the season wears on. Lewis doesn't figure into the fantasy equation much unless there's an injury.

Cleveland Browns RB Brandon Jackson is now the team's primary backup to RB Trent Richardson after the loss of both RBs Montario Hardesty (knee) and Dion Lewis (fibula) to the season-ending Injured Reserve list.

We have to do a good job of keeping him fresh throughout the course of the season."

Browns | Dion Lewis carted off

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 18:54:27 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis (ankle) was carted off the field after suffering a left ankle injury during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is having a great training camp and was on track to become the No. 2 running back this season, but could miss some time depending on the severity of the injury. Montario Hardesty was also a candidate for the backup RB job, but he is out recovering from knee surgery. Brandon Jackson could become the backup by default depending on Lewis' injury and would be the handcuff to Trent Richardson.

Browns | Montario Hardesty to miss two games

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:09:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (knee) will miss at least the first two weeks of the regular season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday, Aug. 15. Hardesty has had surgery on both of the anterior cruciate ligaments in both of his knees already. He's missed most of training camp with a hamstring issue and a dislocated right thumb earlier this week. RBs Dion Lewis and Brandon Jackson are competing for the backup spot behind RB Trent Richardson.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has stood out in camp and should be the favorite to back up Richardson at this point. Target him in the late rounds if you're worried about how Richardson will hold up in his second full season.

Browns | Trent Richardson fully healthy

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 12:48:30 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (shin) is no longer wearing protective covering on his right shin and said he is 100 percent healthy. His practice workload increased last weekend, but the team hasn't decided if they'll let him play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15. "In the back of your mind you've got to realize it's preseason and coach is gonna do the best thing for me to put me in the best position to stay healthy for the whole season," he said. "It's good and bad. I feel I can be ready to go Sept. 8 without playing any preseason. I feel I can be ready with playing preseason." RB Dion Lewis has taken most of the first-team reps when Richardson hasn't practiced.

Fantasy Tip: You should have no reservations about selecting Richardson in the middle to end of Round 1 in fantasy football drafts this year. If you're a bit worried about his health, Lewis appears to be the main handcuff option right now.

Browns | Dion Lewis working with second team

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 17:08:26 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis has started working with the second-team offense, and he has turned heads with his speed, moves and catching ability. Lewis has been seeing more work with RB Montario Hardesty (hamstring) sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis could win the No. 2 job if he keeps up his performance, and Hardesty cannot get onto the field. He still will be behind RB Trent Richardson, who will get a majority of the touches. However, if Richardson should suffer some sort of an injury, Lewis could be a nice in-season fantasy sleeper.

Browns | RBs seeing a lot of passes

Tue, 28 May 2013 16:46:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system is throwing a lot of passes to the running back position so far this offseason. RB Trent Richardson caught 51 balls last year, but RBs Dion Lewis and Montario Hardesty have also shown the ability to catch passes.

Fantasy Tip: Watch how the pass distribution and playing time on third downs plays out in the offseason, particularly the preseason. Richardson could see fewer passes come his way in 2013.

Sun, 19 May 2013 18:31:58 -0700

The Cleveland Browns feel confident WR Travis Benjamin and RB Dion Lewis can handle the return duties, which is why fan favorite WR Joshua Cribbs (Raiders) (knee) was allowed to leave via free agency without much effort to re-sign him. Plus, Cribbs is 30, and there are concerns about his knee.

Browns | Like speed of Dion Lewis

Sun, 19 May 2013 18:31:05 -0700

The Cleveland Browns like the speed of RB Dion Lewis, especially as a third-down back. Lewis might also be in the mix to return kicks.

Fantasy Tip: As far as fantasy value, Lewis has very little considering he is behind Trent Richardson, Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya on the depth chart. If injuries or a trade changes that picture, and Lewis scoots up the chart, he might be worth a look in fantasy football.

"He'll work in as a starter and then Bryce has some valuable experience that he's gained over the last few weeks, so we'll get him in there." McCoy said he felt a bit rusty while practicing Wednesday, Dec. 19.

And I am excited about that."
