  • Odell Beckham Jr. Not On Trading Block

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will not be traded and the team has no plans to do so in the future, according to Adam Schefter. There was speculation that Beckham was on the block after a disappointing loss to the Ravens in Week 1, though the Browns insist that this was never a possibility. The Pro Bowl wideout bounced back in a big way in Week 2, recording four catches for 74 yards and a score against the Bengals on Thursday night. With matchups against Washington, Dallas and Indianapolis on deck, Beckham can be viewed as a potential buy-low candidate, especially if any of his fantasy managers are concerned at the moment.

  • Browns Defense Picks Up Three Sacks In Win

    The Cleveland Browns Defense picked up three sacks in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Cleveland also recovered a Joe Burrow fumble near the Cincinnati goal line in the game, which wasn't as close as the final score indicates. Myles Garrett led the way as he was the one who forced the Burrow fumble on a sack in the third quarter. The Browns offense cashed in on that turnover two plays later on a Nick Chubb one-yard touchdown run. Cleveland's defense has another plus matchup in Week 3 against the Washington Football Team.

  • Austin Hooper Goes For 21 Yards In Win

    Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper caught two of four targets for 21 scoreless yards in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. It was another quiet game for Hooper, who only caught two passes for 15 yards in the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens. There was some hope he would have more chances in Week 2 after David Njoku was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week. It didn't help that the Browns only attempted 23 passes in a game that wasn't as close as the final score indicates. With just four catches for 36 yards through two games, Hooper is slipping into low-end TE2 territory in fantasy. He will look to rebound in Week 3 against the Washington Football Team.

  • Jarvis Landry Catches Three Passes

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry caught three of his four targets for 46 yards in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. It was a quiet game for Landry, who can normally be counted upon to see more than four targets in most games. That being said, the Cleveland offense under new head coach Kevin Stefanski wants to be run-heavy, which will cut into Landry's looks. Landry has caught eight of 10 targets for 107 scoreless yards through the first two games of the season. He will take on the Washington Football Team in Week 3.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. Scores In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught four of his six targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Beckham and Baker Mayfield connected for a pretty 43-yard touchdown in the second quarter to give Cleveland their second TD of the evening. That went in the books as Beckham's first score of the 2020 season. The star receiver has now drawn 16 targets through the first two games of the season, totalling seven catches for 96 yards. He will be a solid WR2 in Week 3 when he faces the Washington Football Team.

  • Kareem Hunt Scores Pair Of TDs

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt had a big day in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Hunt carried the ball 10 times for 86 yards and a score while adding two catches for 15 yards and another TD in the winning effort. Hunt got wide open behind the closest defender on his touchdown reception, an easy six-yard grab near the right pylon toward the end of the second quarter. He later tacked on what would be Cleveland's final score on a one-yard run in the fourth quarter. The veteran running back has been busy over Cleveland's first two games, racking up 23 rushes and six receptions. The new Cleveland coaching staff seems more inclined to use Hunt than the previous regime did in 2019, which bodes well for his fantasy value going forward. Hunt will be a solid option in Week 3 against the Washington Football Team.

  • Nick Chubb Scores Twice In Week 2 Win

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 22 times for 125 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Chubb also tacked on a nine-yard reception on the way to Cleveland's first win of the season. It was an excellent performance for Chubb, who had a quiet game in the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens. He capped off Cleveland's first drive with an 11-yard TD run and then scored on a one-yard plunge in the third. Chubb now has 185 rushing yards and two touchdowns after the first two weeks of the season. He will be a strong play in Week 3 against the Washington Football Team.

  • Baker Mayfield Throws Two TDs In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 16 of 23 passes for 218 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in a 35-30 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Mayfield was effective in the win, finding Odell Beckham Jr. for a 43-yard score in the second quarter and a wide-open Kareem Hunt for a six-yard touchdown right before the half. It was a much-needed outing for Mayfield, who had begun to hear whispers that his starting job wasn't safe after a Week 1 loss. Mayfield heads into Week 3's showdown with the Washington Football Team with three touchdowns and two interceptions through two games.

  • Jarvis Landry Active In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) is officially active for Thursday's Week 2 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. Rookie wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is inactive. Landry's been dealing with this hip issue all year after offseason surgery, but it didn't keep him off the field in Week 1, so it's no surprise that even on a short week, he's out there again. Landry's a solid flex play in full PPR leagues, though the Browns offense looked like a disaster in Week 1. If things don't get on the right track on Thursday, Landry could suffer.

  • Browns Defense A Sneaky Option In Week 2

    The Cleveland Browns Defense did not fare well in a 38-6 blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Of course, the Ravens have one of the most dangerous offenses in the league, so last week's outcome isn't all that surprising. The Browns have a chance to bounce back in Week 2's Thursday night matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Cleveland is installed as six-point home favorites in the contest and will be going up against a rookie quarterback in Joe Burrow who is making just his second career start. Fantasy gamers can consider starting the Cleveland defense in fantasy as a unit with some sneaky upside for Week 2. They are also an interesting option in single-game showdown slates in DFS.

  • Austin Hooper A TE2 In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper had a slow debut for his new team in Week 1. Hooper finished with just two catches for 15 yards and was overshadowed by fellow tight end David Njoku, who found the end zone. Hooper could be a larger part of the offense going forward as Njoku landed on injured reserve with a knee injury this week. The absence of Njoku should create more looks for Hooper in Week 2's Thursday night matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincy allowed Hunter Henry to lead the Los Angeles Chargers in receiving in Week 1, giving some hope to fantasy gamers who drafted Hooper to be their TE1. For now, it is best to treat Hooper as a mid-range TE2 until he shows more production on the field.

  • Jarvis Landry Expected To Suit Up Thursday Night

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) is expected to play in his team's Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night. Landry missed practice on Tuesday and was limited on Wednesday. The extra rest appears to have been precautionary as Landry had hip surgery back in February. Landry will face off against a Bengals secondary that should be much more generous than the Baltimore Ravens cornerbacks who he did battle with in Week 1. The Cleveland passing offense has struggled since the beginning of the 2019 season but Landry has been the one source of consistent production for the team. Treat him as a low-end WR2 in fantasy leagues for this week.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. A WR3 In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had an up-and-down game in Week 1's blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He led the team with 10 targets but only finished with three catches for 22 yards against an excellent Baltimore secondary. He should find it much easier to operate in Week 2's Thursday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Expect Beckham to see plenty of targets again in Week 2 against a Cincy secondary that is much more vulnerable than Baltimore's. That being said, it is hard to trust Beckham as much more than a WR3 until we see the Browns offense operate at a competent level, something that has been a rare sight over the past 17 games.

  • Kareem Hunt A Low-End RB2 In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt outproduced starter Nick Chubb in Week 1's blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Hunt out-touched Chubb 17 to 11 and outgained him in total yards, 81 to 66. Week 1's game script favored Hunt as the Browns fell behind early and shifted into catch-up mode. Cleveland is installed as six-point home favorites for their Week 2 Thursday night matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. If the game goes as expected, this sets up as a more favorable situation for Chubb. That being said, Hunt should see most of the work in the passing game and can be projected for at least 10 carries on the ground in a Cleveland offense that wants to skew run heavy. That's good enough to treat Hunt as a low-end RB2 for Week 2, especially against a Bengals Defense that coughed up a 148 rushing yards and a score to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1.

    Sep 17 · Source via Browns Kareem Hunt
  • Nick Chubb A Solid Play In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb had a slow afternoon in his team's Week 1 blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Chubb finished with just 11 total touches for 66 yards, six fewer touches than backup Kareem Hunt. Of course, the Browns fell behind early in that contest and shifted into catch-up mode, a game script that benefits Hunt over Chubb. Chubb should bounce back in Week 2's Thursday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincy's defense allowed the Los Angeles Chargers running backs to total 148 rushing yards and a score in their season opener. With the Browns playing at home as six-point favorites, look for the game script to favor Chubb this week. Shake off his Week 1 outing and fire Chubb up as a low-end RB1 in Week 2.

  • Baker Mayfield Hard To Trust In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield turned in a disappointing performance in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, throwing for just 189 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He will look to put that behind him when he takes on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2's Thursday night matchup. While Mayfield wasn't great in the season opener, there is some cause for optimism considering that Baltimore employs one of the top defenses in the league. The Cincinnati pass defense figures to be much more generous to the Cleveland passing attack on Thursday evening. Season-long fantasy gamers most likely have better starting options at the quarterback position for Week 2 but Mayfield does make for an interesting dart throw in DFS GPP contests.

  • Jarvis Landry Questionable Against Bengals

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) is listed as questionable for the Thursday night game against the divisional-rival Bengals. Landry missed practice on Tuesday but was limited on Wednesday. He played 46 of 67 snaps in the Week 1 blowout loss to the Ravens and caught five of his six targets for 61 yards. Rashard Higgins would likely start opposite Odell Beckham Jr. if Landry is inactive. Also, both starting tackles Jack Conklin (ankle, finger) and Jedrick Wills Jr. (shin) and center JC Tretter (knee) are questionable. If he suits up, Landry will be a WR3/flex, but make sure to check the Thursday inactives before game time.

  • David Njoku Expected To Miss Three Weeks

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (knee) has a sprained medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss three weeks, according to a source. The Browns put Njoku on Injured Reserve on Monday, but it looks like he'll miss the minimum time with his knee injury. The 24-year-old caught all three of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 loss to the Ravens. Njoku will probably remain on the waiver wire in shallow leagues, but he's worth stashing in deeper formats if he continues to have a role alongside Austin Hooper when he returns. Hooper will have TE1 upside with Njoku on the sidelines for a bit, and rookie Harrison Bryant might get mixed in some more.

  • Browns Release Austin Seibert

    The Cleveland Browns released kicker Austin Seibert on Monday. Seibert struggled in the team's Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, missing an extra point and a 40-yard field goal in the contest. The move was expected after Cleveland signed kicker Cody Parkey earlier in the day. Seibert heads to the free-agency bin just a year after the Browns spent a fifth-round rookie pick on him. He wraps his Cleveland career with an 83.3% field goal percentage (25 of 30) in 17 games.

  • Browns Signing Cody Parkey

    The Cleveland Browns are signing kicker Cody Parkey to their 53-man roster on Monday, according to a source. It's a sign that Parkey will kick on Thursday night against the Bengals after Austin Seibert missed both of his attempts -- a 41-yard field-goal attempt and an extra point -- in the Week 1 blowout loss to the Ravens. Parkey was released by the Titans last year after making all three of his field-goal attempts, including a 51-yarder, in three games for Tennessee. He was a Pro Bowler in his rookie season with the Eagles and has made 84.3 percent of his 121 field goals attempted over six seasons. If he replaces Seibert as the team's primary kicker, you can ignore him in fantasy with the Browns offense already off to a slow start.

  • Browns Defense Shredded By Baltimore

    The Cleveland Browns Defense struggled to contain the Baltimore Ravens in a 38-6 loss in Week 1. Cleveland managed just two sacks and was unable to force a turnover in the loss. Fortunately most fantasy gamers didn't start the Browns defense as expectations weren't high for Cleveland in this matchup as the Ravens were one of the best offenses in the league in 2019 and returned all of their key players in 2020. Fantasy gamers can expect better results when the Browns face the Cincinnati Bengals at home on Thursday night in Week 2.

  • David Njoku Scores TD, Leaves Early With Knee Injury

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku had a solid game in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Njoku caught all three of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the lopsided loss. The veteran tight end found the end zone on a one-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the first quarter and later ripped off a 28-yard reception. He surprisingly outplayed high-profile free-agent signing Austin Hooper in the game as Hooper finished with just 12 yards on two catches. It wasn't all great for Njoku, however, as he left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury and didn't return. His status for his team's Week 2 showdown against the Cincinnati Bengals is unknown at the time. His team plays on Thursday so he doesn't have much time to get ready.

  • Austin Hooper Quiet In Cleveland Debut

    Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper was quiet in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Hooper was targeted just twice, catching both for 12 yards in his first game for Cleveland after joining the team as a free-agent signing in the offseason. More was expected out of Hooper, who wasn't even the most productive tight end on the team as David Njoku went for 50 yards and a score in the loss. Fantasy gamers shouldn't panic just yet as the Ravens have one of the better defenses in the league and quarterback Baker Mayfield was on the run all afternoon, which kept him off rhythm and forced him to rush throws. Hooper will look for a better outing in Week 2 when the Cincinnati Bengals visit Cleveland for the Thursday night game.

  • Jarvis Landry Leads Browns In Receiving In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry led his team in receiving in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Landry hauled in five of six targets for 61 yards in the losing effort. The veteran receiver came into the game with some questions about how much he would play after offseason shoulder surgery but he saw enough run to finish second on the team in targets. Landry appears to be locked into his usual high-volume, low-upside role in new head coach Kevin Stefanski's offense. He will face off against the Cincinnati Bengals at home in Week 2 in the Thursday night game.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. Quiet In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a quiet outing in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Beckham caught just three of 10 targets for 22 yards in the lopsided loss while committing several mistakes along the way. The star receiver committed a brutal drop that would have given his team a new set of downs on a third down. He also had a catch negated by a facemask penalty against him after the grab and another reception wiped away after stepped out of bounds before coming down with the ball. On the plus side, Beckham did draw a few pass interference flags for his team along the way. Beckham will look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

  • Kareem Hunt Sees 17 Touches In Opener

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt out-touched starter Nick Chubb in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Hunt carried the ball 13 times for 72 yards and added four receptions for nine yards in the lopsided loss. Meanwhile, Chubb only logged 11 touches and lost a fumble along the way. While Hunt seeing a larger workload than Chubb may have been a result of the Browns playing from behind all afternoon, that never happened in the eight games the two backs played in together in 2019. It is possible that the new Cleveland coaching staff will use the two in a more even split than was the case in 2019. Hunt will look to find the end zone in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Thursday night game.

  • Nick Chubb Rushes For 60 Yards, Loses Fumble

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb had a rough 2020 debut in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Chubb carried the ball 10 times for 60 yards and lost a fumble while adding a six-yard catch in the lopsided loss. It is only one week but the workload split between Chubb and Kareem Hunt was much different than it was last season with Hunt seeing three more carries and three more receptions than Chubb. That possibly could have been a result of the Ravens taking a big lead but the Browns recently gave Hunt a contract extension so it's clear they like what he brings to the offense. Chubb will look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Thursday night game.

  • Baker Mayfield Manages One TD

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield struggled to move the offense in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Mayfield completed 21 of 39 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the lopsided loss. The Ravens only sacked him twice on the afternoon but they often got pressure on the third-year quarterback, forcing him to move off of his spot in the pocket and rush his passes on several occasions. Mayfield's touchdown pass was a one-yard hook-up with tight end David Njoku. Better days should be ahead for Mayfield and the Cleveland offense as Baltimore's defense was as tough as expected in the opener but the signal-caller will be hard to trust until he has a big game. Cleveland will face the Cincinnati Bengals at home on Thursday night in Week 2.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Inactive In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is a healthy inactive in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. People-Jones was a sixth round pick of the team this summer and he has a chance to contribute as both a receiver and kick returner this year. This week, however, he'll be on the sidelines. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry will lead the receiving corps with Rashard Higgins as the third receiver. Fourth-year receiver JoJo Natson could also see some targets and might take kick-returning duties as well.

  • Browns Defense To Be Without Greedy Williams, Mack Wilson

    Cleveland Browns cornerbacks Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (liver) and linebacker Mack Wilson (knee) have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Ravens. Cleveland's secondary is short-handed with Williams and Johnson sidelined and rookie safety Grant Delpit on Injured Reserve. That's not a good combination with Lamar Jackson and the explosive Ravens offense on the docket for the regular season opener on Sunday. Don't be surprised if Jackson connects on some deep balls in Week 1. The Browns Defense should be avoided for fantasy purposes to kick off the season.

  • Jarvis Landry's Playing Time Could Be Game-Plan Dependent

    After having hip surgery in February, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) has been taking part in roughly every other practice since training camp began. While he hasn't been listed on the injury report this week, Landry could see reduced snaps early in the season. Landry told reporters via Zoom, "How much [Ill play] will be, as far as game plan-wise, up to the coaches. Im still getting better. Im still improving and taking each and every day to work on the things that I need to work on to make sure Im healthy out there and make sure I can go out there and compete and help this team to win games. The fact that the Browns aren't ready to deploy Landry in a full-time role isn't great news for fantasy gamers relying on him to be their WR2/3 this season. Downgrade Landry to a shaky flex, at best, for his Week 1 showdown against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Kevin Stefanski To Call Plays In 2020

    Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters on Friday that he will call the offensive plays in his first season as head coach, but he'll also work collaboratively with offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. The Browns were a huge disappointment in 2019 under Freddie Kitchens, but Stefanski's vision for Cleveland's 2020 offense is expected to mesh much better with quarterback Baker Mayfield and the rest of the offense. Running back Nick Chubb should see plenty of work as the primary back, and two-tight end sets with Austin Hooper and David Njoku could be common under Stefanski. The main thing that fantasy managers will be watching will be the connection between Mayfield and his No. 1 wideout, Odell Beckham Jr.

    Cleveland Browns cornerback Greedy Williams (shoulder) is not practicing on Thursday. Williams has been sidelined with a shoulder injury since the middle of August and his status for Cleveland's Week 1 showdown against the Baltimore Ravens is looking shaky. The likely absence of Williams is going to be a big problem for the Browns as it leaves Denzel Ward and not much else as they attempt to slow a Baltimore offense that was one of the best in the league in 2019. Fantasy gamers are going to want to upgrade the Baltimore passing attack and further downgrade the Cleveland D/ST for this weekend.

  • Browns Defense In A Tough Spot In Week 1

    The Cleveland Browns Defense draws a tough matchup in their season opener in Week 1. Cleveland will face an explosive Baltimore Ravens offense on the road to kick off the year. Baltimore sported one of the top offenses in the league in 2019 and is returning all of their important players at the skill positions. The Ravens could even conceivably be better in 2020 with a fully healthy Marquise Brown and star rookie running back J.K. Dobbins in the fold. The Browns are 7.5-point road underdogs in a game where the Ravens have an implied 28.25-point team total. The Browns have some talent on the defensive side of the ball this season but this isn't the week to use the unit in fantasy.

  • Kareem Hunt Signs Two-Year Extension

    The Cleveland Browns signed running back Kareem Hunt to a two-year, $13.25 million extension on Tuesday. The deal will keep Hunt in Cleveland through the end of the 2022 season after the running back was initially scheduled to become a free-agent after the year. While the extension is good news for Hunt, it isn't particularly great for those who have been rostering him in dynasty leagues while hoping for him to land a role as a team's lead back in 2021. As it stands, Hunt will see a handful of carries behind Nick Chubb while doing most of his damage in the passing game for Cleveland as he has been lining up all over the formation in camp.

    Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper will debut with his new team when he travels to Baltimore to take on the Ravens in Week 1. Cleveland awarded Hooper with a huge free-agent contract in the offseason and he has reportedly shown excellent chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield in the early going. Good chemistry might not be enough in Week 1, however, as the Ravens were one of the best defenses in the league when it came to limiting opposing tight ends in 2019. Treat Hooper as a mid-range TE2 for the season opener.

  • Jarvis Landry A Flex Play For Week 1

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry will travel to Baltimore to face the division-rival Ravens in Week 1. Landry spent most of the offseason rehabbing his hip after undergoing surgery in February. All signs point to him being able to play in Week 1, although it is unclear how limited (if at all) he will be in the early stages of the season. Add in a tough matchup against a Baltimore secondary that was stingy against receivers in 2019 and it's easy to be a bit hesitant with Landry in fantasy to open the season. He's best deployed as a flex option for Week 1.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. A WR2 In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will take on a tough Baltimore Ravens Defense in a road game to kick off the season in Week 1. Beckham squared off against Baltimore twice in 2019, posting two catches for 20 yards in their first meeting and four catches for 44 yards and a score in their rematch. The Ravens boasted a strong secondary in 2019 and the Cleveland offense that is expected to be run-heavy under new head coach Kevin Stefanski. For both of those reasons, treat OBJ as a low-end WR2 for his matchup in Week 1.

  • Kareem Hunt A Solid Flex In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens in Week 1. Hunt enters the year as the team's clear third-down back as he should see the majority of the running back targets in the passing game. While that is a role that can be hard to predict on a weekly basis, Hunt could see a decent amount of work in Week 1 if the Ravens offense is as good as it was last season. There's a good chance that Baltimore gets out to a big lead and forces that Browns to throw often, assuring that Hunt would see plenty of snaps in the second half. Treat Hunt as a solid flex play in Week 1.

  • Nick Chubb A Solid RB2 In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens to kick off the 2020 season. Chubb faced off against the Ravens twice in 2019 with mixed results. He racked up 165 rushing yards and three touchdowns the first time they met but only managed 45 scoreless yards in the rematch in Week 16. Chubb doesn't project to see much in the passing game with Kareem Hunt around but he remains one of the top pure runners in the league. Treat him as a mid-range RB2 for Week 1 due to the tough matchup.

  • Baker Mayfield Hard To Trust In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has plenty of appeal as a post-hype sleeper in 2020. The entire Cleveland offense let down fantasy gamers in 2019 but the talent is still there for Mayfield to put together some QB1 weeks in 2020. That is unlikely to be the case in Week 1, however, as the Browns travel to Baltimore to face a Ravens secondary that was very stingy against opposing passing attacks in 2019. Mayfield also will have to contend with what most expect will be a run-oriented offensive attack implemented by new head coach Kevin Stefanski. For now, treat Mayfield as a low-end QB2/high-end QB3 for Week 1's matchup.
