Browns sign Nate Burleson to a one-year deal
Monday, April 7, 2014, 11:28am

Cleveland Browns - [Full Article]

The Browns have agreed to terms on a deal with WR Nate Burleson, the club announced.

Burleson, who spent the past four seasons in Detroit, will provide the Browns with some depth and an experienced veteran who can help mentor young receivers such as Josh Gordon. In 2011, he won the Lions' Good Guy Award from the local sportscasters and Pro Football Writers Association and was a leader in the locker room.

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns also signed Andrew Hawkins to man the slot, so Burleson is likely to be the team's WR4 assuming they find a starter in the draft. If not, he is capable of starting opposite Gordon, though he doesn't offer much playmaking ability at this point in his career. Greg Little's days in Cleveland look to be numbered.

Bengals not matching Browns offer sheet for WR Andrew Hawkins.

Bengals plan to match 4-yr, $12.2M offer sheet that includes $5.3M guaranteed that Cincinnati RFA WR Andrew Hawkins signed with Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

It sounds as if Hawkins will be returning to the slot in Cincinnati. He showed playmaking ability in his second year (51-533-4), but struggled with a foot injury in 2013. He's already 28 years old.

WRs Mohamed Sanu, Andrew Hawkins active for Bengals
Thursday, October 31, 2013, 7:15pm

Bengals inactives
RB Rex Burkhead,
CB Chris Lewis-Harris
LB Michael Boley
LB Rey Maualuga
DT Devon Still
OL Trevor Robinson
OT Andrew Whitworth

Fantasy Impact:

Mohamed Sanu was very iffy all week, so he may not play a full complement of snaps. Marvin Jones would see extra playing time if Sanu is limited, and is a WR2/WR3 type after finding the endzone for three straight weeks. Andrew Hawkins is also active. He's mainly a slot receiver, so he may take the Bengals out of two-TE sets, limiting the upside of Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert.

Bengals activate Andrew Hawkins

The Bengals announce that they’ve activated WR Andrew Hawkins to the roster from the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Impact:

It appears that Hawkins may make his debut tonight. He caught 51 passes for 533 yards and four TDs in 14 games last year. Mohamed Sanu is questionable with a shoulder injury and 4-TD Marvin Jones is pushing for more playing time.

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bengals made a series of much-anticipated roster moves Wednesday morning as they set their roster for Sunday's opener at Chicago, including placing receiver Andrew Hawkins on injured reserve with a designation for a possible return later this season.

Fantasy Impact:

Hawkins isn't fantasy relevant at this point in the season, as rookie TE Tyler Eifert has likely taken his targets.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis says WR Andrew Hawkins candidate for IR recall.

Fantasy Impact:

Hawkins has a serious ankle injury. He's not much of a factor at this point, especially with Tyler Eifert emerging at the TE2 position.

National Football Post - [Full Article]

Last season, the Bengals’ most effective personnel package might have been one tight end, three wide receivers and one back with Mohamed Sanu and Andrew Hawkins complementing A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham. OC Jay Gruden said the plan is still to feature that package quite a bit, probably in nickel.

“It’s just that our base package will probably feature more two tight ends (including rookie Tyler Eifert), two receivers rather than one tight end two backs,” he said. “We can get everything in our running game in that personnel group. It’s taking out a fullback and putting in a heck of a pass catcher and hopefully a good blocker. We like to mix up our personnel groupings and keep defenses off balance hopefully and be diverse in what we do. Our goal is to get our best players on the field.”

If the Bengals can force defenses to go nickel on first and second down with two tight ends on the field as the Patriots do, running backs BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard are going to see a lot of daylight. The key is Eifert being multi-dimensional—not just a pass catcher.

“If Tyler is a good blocker, that puts us in a good advantage in the run game,” Gruden said. “That’s what New England does so well. They get teams to match up nickel with them and they can run the ball effectively out of that two tight end set. They have an extra big body blocking. Tyler has a long way to go to prove he’s a good blocker. Training camp will help him. Coach [Jonathan] Hayes has been around tight ends for a long time and is a great tutor for him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Eifert is going to have a tough time getting enough snaps to be fantasy relevant as a TE2.

Mohamed Sanu done for season
Friday, November 30, 2012, 1:42pm

Joe Reedy, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu suffered a stress fracture during practice on Thursday. Surgery on Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

This will end Sanu's promising season. He'll be a sleeper heading into 2013 fantasy drafts. Andrew Hawkins could re-emerge as a viable fantasy option in deep leagues if he can stay healthy.
