Browns Beat: WR Taylor Gabriel 'has been the star of the offseason'

Cleveland Browns - [Full Article]

Browns writer Nathan Zegura said that WR Taylor Gabriel "has been the star of the offseason." Zegura went on to say, "He is going to push to be a starter in two-wide receiver sets. He has been that good, consistently generating separation and getting down the field against all comers."

Fantasy Impact:

We reached out to Zegura on Twitter and asked him to rank Dwayne Bowe, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel in expected 2015 receiving yardage and he replied: "So tough. Depends on if Gabriel can win #2 job. Right now, I'd go Bowe, Hawk, Gabriel, Hartline. Gabriel could lead if he becomes an every down WR." This is a camp battle to monitor. For now, consider adding Gabriel in the waning rounds. His big-play ability makes him an ideal candidate for best ball formats.

Browns WR Taylor Gabriel could 'shatter' 2014 production

Cleveland Browns - [Full Article]

Cleveland Browns Daily hosts Nathan Zegura and Matt Wilhelm did not sugarcoat their feelings for Taylor Gabriel: They both think he’s been the best wide receiver on the team during the offseason program and that he could shatter the 621 receiving yards he posted as a rookie.

Fantasy Impact:

Gabriel is penciled in as the team's fourth receiver behind Dwayne Bowe, Brian Hartline and Andrew Hawkins. He's going to have to move up the depth chart to beat his 2014 numbers. We should have a better idea what sort of playing time he's looking at once training camp begins.

Browns sign WR Dwayne Bowe

The Browns are signing WR Dwayne Bowe, source said. Cleveland is giving him a two-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Bowe should start opposite Brian Hartline with Andrew Hawkins manning the slot. He hasn't finished in the top 40 since 2011, and while his QB play in Kansas City wasn't great, it's not like Josh McCown is an upgrade over Alex Smith. We're expecting more disappointing numbers from Bowe in 2015.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The practice-squad player whom the Browns called up to take the place of suspended wideout Josh Gordon will not play Sunday.

According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Browns announced wideout Phil Bates has been ruled out of tomorrow’s game against the Ravens. It’s unclear why Bates won’t play, but the club did say it was not an injury-related decision, per the Beacon Journal. Bates did not accompany the club to Baltimore, according to the report.

Fantasy Impact:

With Gordon and Bates out, the Browns have five available receivers: Travis Benjamin, Taylor Gabriel, Andrew Hawkins, Marlon Moore and Rodney Smith. However, Hawkins is questionable with a thumb injury, though he did put in a limited practice on Friday after not practicing Wednesday. (The club had Thursday off.)

Friday, December 26, 2014, 6:53pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (thumb, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 17.

Friday, December 19, 2014, 6:02pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (illness, probable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 16.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (illness) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice.

Browns place WR Miles Austin on injured reserve

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Browns have placed wide receiver Miles Austin on injured reserve and say he's still in the hospital recovering from a kidney injury.

Austin was hurt in Sunday's loss to Buffalo. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Austin remains in the Erie County Medical Center.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a tough blow for Austin, but it opens the door for more snaps/targets for Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel.

Friday, November 14, 2014, 6:06pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (thigh, knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 11. Hawkins is a Sneaky Start in a nice matchup with the Texans.

Thursday, November 13, 2014, 6:29pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (thigh, knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Hawkins was close to playing last week, so we’re expecting him to suit up in Week 11 for a nice matchup with the Texans.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 5:52pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (thigh, knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Hawkins was close to playing last week, so we’re expecting him to suit up in Week 11 for a nice matchup with the Texans.

TNF Browns/Bengals Inactives: Andrew Hawkins INACTIVE

Thursday, November 6, 2014, 7:20pm - [Full Article]


Johnson Bademosi CB
Jordan Cameron TE
Pierre Desir CB
Andrew Hawkins WR
Robert Nelson DB
Vinston Painter T
Glenn Winston RB


Giovani Bernard RB
Vontaze Burfict OLB
Will Clarke DE
Leon Hall CB
Rey Maualuga MLB
Dane Sanzenbacher WR

Fantasy Impact:

Taylor Gabriel, Miles Austin and Travis Benjamin all get a small bump, but this is not an attractive matchup against a good Bengals secondary and weather may be an issue. Gabriel is our highest-ranked Browns receiver (#43 in standard formats).

Wednesday, November 5, 2014, 6:08pm

Browns WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. Gabriel will be a Sneaky Start against the Bengals with Jordan Cameron out, especially if Andrew Hawkins is sidelined as well.

Wednesday, November 5, 2014, 6:08pm

Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (thigh, knee, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. If Hawkins can’t play, Taylor Gabriel and Miles Austin would get a bump. The Browns are really hurting for healthy pass-catchers with Jordan Cameron out and Hawkins iffy.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Browns OC Kyle Shanahan said Taylor Gabriel would be the team’s third receiver, behind Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin. He said Hawkins played only in the slot when he was in Cincinnati, but has been used inside and out since he joined the Browns in March. Gabriel is an undrafted rookie free agent.
