Browns QB Josh McCown (ribs, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 10. HC Mike Pettine said that McCown would start if he’s healthy enough to play and is active on Sunday, but he’s keeping the starter secret to maintain a competitive advantage. If he’s back under center, it would be an upgrade for the entire passing game, including Travis Benjamin, Gary Barnidge and Duke Johnson. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that Johnny Manziel is “likely to start” against the Steelers.

Week 10 at Pittsburgh
After sizzling during the first six weeks of the season, Travis Benjamin has been ice cold. In his last three games, Benjamin has 10 catches for 95 yards. That includes last Thursday’s downer against Cincinnati, where Travis was only able to muster three receptions for 22 yards.
Fantasy owners who have continued to give Benjamin the benefit of the doubt can hang their hat on a highly favorable matchup. Pittsburgh just gave up three touchdown passes to Oakland’s Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper. Plus, the Steelers have allowed 16 touchdown passes in nine games and yield 273 yards per game. Benjamin is essentially a boom-or-bust player at this point, but depending on the situation, he still has value as a WR3.
