According to Tom Pelissero on Twitter, Cleveland Browns tight end Harrison Bryant tested positive for COVID-19 and has been placed on the reserve/COVID list.
Bryant has tested positive for the coronavirus and will miss Week 17. Bryant had some impressive flashes in game action and has impressed the Browns in practice all season. Bryant should see his role grow in year two, and may even cause the Browns to move on from David Njoku this offseason. Bryant finishes the year with 24 receptions for 238 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Austin Hooper should see a few more pass routes with Bryant sidelined and is our TE18 for Week 17.
CLE TE Harrison Bryant - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Harrison Bryant caught the fantasy world's eye in Week 7 when he caught four balls for 56 yards and a pair of touchdowns. That being said, Bryant still only ran 17 routes last Sunday and continued to split snaps with David Njoku with Austin Hooper sidelined. The Raiders have been a middle-of-the-road matchup for tight ends to this point, but Hooper looks set to miss Week 8, meaning Bryant could have some desperation streamer appeal this week.
