Browns Fantasy News

Friday, October 31, 2014, 5:43pm

Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (rib, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 9. Jackson continues to nurse the rib injury but will be fine for a solid matchup against the Browns. He has been outplayed by rookie Mike Evans thus far, but should eventually get it going.

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 9. Jim Dray and Gary Barnridge will hold down the fort while Cameron recovers. This is his third concussion in two years, so the team will proceed with caution.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Martin is out of his walking boot, but is looking very iffy for Sunday’s game against the Browns. The team may elect to sit him to get a look at Charles Sims, who is a good bet to be active in Week 9. Sims and Rainey would likely form a committee in a good matchup.

Bucs Beat: RB Charles Sims will see 10-plus touches in Week 9

Buccaneers beat writer Greg Auman predicts 10-plus touches for RB Charles Sims in his first game back.

Fantasy Impact:

Doug Martin is nursing an ankle injury and the current regime in Tampa has more invested in Sims than in any running back on the roster. He's a real threat to take over feature back duties given Martin's production (2.9 YPC) and Bobby Rainey's ball security problems this season. Sims averaged 21.1 touches per game as a senior at West Virginia. We're expecting Sims and Rainey to form a committee in a nice matchup against the Browns if Martin is sidelined.

Browns TE Jordan Cameron (head) unlikely to play in Week 9

Ohio.com - [Full Article]

Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron is being guided through the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Cameron left the game Sunday with a concussion —his third documented one in less than two years — with 7:31 left in the second quarter. He caught a 21-yard pass over the middle from Brian Hoyer and took a shot from safety Brandian Ross.

“I don’t know where he was today, as far as symptoms, but you don’t even start the clock until they’re ‘symptom-free,’ ” HC Mike Pettine said. “I know he won’t go today, and that’ll be a day-to-day thing based on where he is.”

Fantasy Impact:

Consider Cameron doubtful for Week 9 and perhaps longer. Owners in trouble at tight end should consider stashing Kyle Rudolph and/or Tyler Eifert, who are both due back in a few weeks.

Jordan Cameron's status next two weeks in doubt

Tuesday, October 28, 2014, 9:08pm

Cleveland Plain Dealer - [Full Article]

Browns tight end Jordan Cameron suffered his third concussion in less than two years, and his status for the next two games is uncertain.

With the Browns playing two games over the next 11 days - at home Sunday against Tampa Bay and Thursday Nov. 6 in Cincinnati - it remains to be seen if Cameron will play in either one.

Cameron went up for the 21-yard catch and was drilled in the head and neck area by Raiders safety Brandian Ross, who led with his helmet illegally. Cameron was lost for the game, and probably more.

Fantasy Impact:

We've had a lot of questions from owners this week in our Discuss Your Team forum about whether or not to drop Cameron. While it's certainly a case-by-case basis, carrying two TEs this time of year can be tough. Given the Browns have two games in 11 days, it seems unlikely Cameron plays in either one of them. It's his third concussion since 2012, meaning he's had one each of the last three years.

Browns concerned with Isaiah Crowell's ball security

HC Mike Pettine said the Browns would like to see Isaiah Crowell get more touches. Gave Ben Tate more late in game because of ball security concerns with Crowell.

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns haven't been running the ball well and continue to look for a compliment to Tate. It sounds like the team would like it to be Crowell, but right now can't trust him. Crowell had just one carry for a yard in the game while Terrance West had seven for 11 yards. West was just a healthy scratch as recently as Week 6, so there continues to be a lot of searching in the Browns rushing game.

Jordan Cameron suffers concussion

TE Jordan Cameron has a concussion and will not return.

Fantasy Impact:

Cameron will have to pass protocol to play in Week 9. It's an early afternoon game against the Bucs.

A.J. Green targeting Week 9

Sunday, October 26, 2014, 6:57pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Bengals WR A.J. Green plans to return in Week 9.

He recently said that the toe won’t be 100 percent all year long; the question is when he’ll be healthy enough that he can get through a game.

Fantasy Impact:

Whether Green ultimately wins the debate with those in position to advise him on whether he should come back next week remains to be seen. Something to keep in mind is the Browns come to Cincinnati only four days later, so there’s a chance Green waits until the prime-time game against Cleveland rather than play Week 9 and then four days later.

The Saints have added a third tailback for Sunday night’s game vs. Green Bay.

The club promoted running back Edwin Baker from the practice squad on Saturday. To make room for Baker, the Saints released tight end Tom Crabtree. Both moves were announced on the NFL’s transaction wire.

The 23-year-old Baker signed with the Saints’ practice squad in September. He has played in three regular season games, all with the Browns at the end of 2013. In that three-game span, Baker rushed for 171 yards and two touchdowns on 43 carries and caught eight passes for 57 yards. He started Cleveland’s final two contests.

In addition to playing for Cleveland, Baker has had stints with the Chargers, Broncos and Texans. A Michigan State product, Baker was a seventh-round pick of San Diego in 2012.

Fantasy Impact:

Baker will back up Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet for New Orleans, which has ruled out tailbacks Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson.
