Hue Jackson still a believer in RB Isaiah Crowell

Mary Kay Cabot - Cleveland Plain Dealer - [Full Article]

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson on running back Isaiah Crowell: "I believe in Isaiah Crowell. No question. I have to get this guy the ball handed to him."

Fantasy Impact: 

Crowell promised a "monster year" heading into the 2017 season, but it's been more of a nightmare than anything. He's averaging 33.5 rushing yards and 12.5 receiving yards per game through the first four weeks of the season. He has yet to score a touchdown.

Crowell was considered a trendy pick in fantasy leagues this year, but he currently sits as the fantasy RB44 with 20.40 fantasy points. To highlight how brutal Crowell's performance has been so far, J.D. McKissic of the Seahawks scored 18.50 points in his first game last week.

If Crowell were ever to breakout of his slump it would be this week against a New York Jets rush defense allowing 143.8 yards per game. We have Crowell ranked as our No. 24 standard RB in a fantastic matchup.
