Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya to be used as FB?

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 16:40:47 -0700

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner used RB Chris Ogbonnaya as a fullback in two-back sets during offseason workouts, but said the team is likely to keep a traditional fullback in the offense. When asked if Ogbonnaya, a tailback, can fill that role, Turner said, "He can do some of it." It appears FBs Owen Marecic and Brad Smelley will be fighting for one roster spot.

Browns | Backup tight end position deep

Tue, 28 May 2013 16:51:12 -0700

The Cleveland Browns have TEs Gary Barnidge, Kellen Davis and Brad Smelley behind projected starter Jordan Cameron on the roster. Barnidge has done a good job of blocking, as has Davis, while Smelley could find a role as a H-back because of his receiving ability.

Fantasy Tip: None of Cleveland's backup tight ends should be on your radar at this time. Cameron has upside, and could be heavily relied on in this system, but durability issues should be factored in when you consider drafting him as a TE2.

Browns | H-back battle might get heated

Sat, 30 Jun 2012 18:50:41 -0700

Cleveland Browns FB Owen Marecic is the incumbent at the position, but he is viewed as a mostly blocking fullback. TE Brad Smelley has the versatility as a pass receiver, but he is not a true lead blocker. Lastly, TE E. Alex Smith is also in the mix for H-back duties. Two of those players might not make the 53-man roster.
