Browns beat writer Terry Pluto on WR Andrew Hawkins: "I've been to the three OTA sessions open to the media, and the best receiver on the field -- by far -- has been Andrew Hawkins. This type of football (no tackling) is perfect for a 5-foot-7, 170-pound speedster. I knew he was quick, but he has shown outstanding hands."
Hawkins posted a solid 0.17 FP/snap for the Bengals, but he only played 20% of his team’s snaps in 2013. (He also posted a solid 1.11 FP/T on just 18 targets in 2013.) Now he joins a Browns team that will likely be without Josh Gordon, who is reportedly facing an 8-16 game suspension. Without Gordon in the lineup, Hawkins’ main competition for targets may be Miles Austin, Nate Burleson and Jordan Cameron. He could make a living in the slot and become a fantasy factor, especially in PPR formats.
