WR Josh Cribbs Will Have Larger Role

Cleveland Plain Dealer - [Full Article]

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brian Daboll knows that for his offense to be successful, he has to get the ball in the hands of Josh Cribbs more often, and he plans on doing that Sunday in Baltimore.

"I think more touches for Josh would be a good thing," Daboll said.

It shouldn't be hard to find reps for Josh Cribbs against the Ravens, especially with receiver Brian Robiskie doubtful for the game with a pulled hamstring and rookie Carlton Mitchell suffering a head injury in practice. Mitchell sat out practice Friday and is listed as questionable. Cribbs tweaked his left ankle early in practice Friday, but is listed as probable.

"[Cribbs] will get plenty of reps," Daboll said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Cribbs is always capable of generating a big play, but against Baltimore, you don't want him in the lineup unless you are in a return yardage league. An increased work level could make him more valuable down the road.
