  • Browns Add Lucas Havrisik On Futures Deal

    Headshot for Lucas Havrisik

    The Cleveland Browns signed free-agent kicker Lucas Havrisik to a Reserve/Futures deal on Wednesday. The Los Angeles Rams cut Havrisik on New Year's Day after he went 15-for-20 on his field-goal attempts and 19-for-22 on extra-point tries in nine games in his first NFL season. The 24-year-old was not very consistent in his first year in the league and will be hoping to compete for a roster spot with Cleveland entering training camp this summer and the preseason. The Browns used Dustin Hopkins for most of the 2023 campaign, but they had to pivot and sign Riley Patterson, who kicked for the Detroit Lions earlier in the season, when Hopkins was injured near the end of the regular season.

  • Dustin Hopkins Officially Ruled Out

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Saturday's wild-card playoff game against the Houston Texans after missing practice all week. Hopkins will miss his third straight game due to his hamstring injury. Riley Patterson, who has served as Cleveland's kicker the last two games with Hopkins out, will likely be elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster for Saturday's playoff contest. The 24-year-old was the Detroit Lions' primary kicker for 13 games this year before getting cut and latching on with the Browns. In 15 total games between both teams this year, he's gone 16-for-18 on field-goal tries and has miss three of his 44 extra-point attempts. Fantasy managers should be looking for better options at the position on wild-card weekend.

  • Dustin Hopkins Absent From Practice Wednesday

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) missed a second straight day of practice on Wednesday. Head coach Kevin Stefanski said on Tuesday that Hopkins is unlikely to play in the wild-card game on Saturday against the Houston Texans. The 33-year-old also missed the final two games of the regular season with his hamstring injury and isn't going to be available for fantasy managers this weekend. In his first year with Cleveland, Hopkins made 33 of his 36 field-goal attempts and 24 of his 26 extra-point tries in 15 games played. Riley Patterson filled in for Hopkins the last two weeks and went 6-for-7 on his extra points and made his only field-goal attempt. Before coming to Cleveland, the 24-year-old went 15-for-17 on field goals and 35-for-37 on extra points in 13 games for the Detroit Lions. Fantasy managers should look for better kicking options on wild-card weekend.

  • Dustin Hopkins Unlikely To Kick On Saturday

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is unlikely to face the Houston Texans in the AFC wild-card game on Saturday, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski. It's bad news for Cleveland in a critical time of the season, but it looks like Riley Patterson will handle the kicking duties. Hopkins was excellent during the regular season, connecting on 33 of his 36 field-goal attempts. He went 8-for-8 on tries of 50-plus yards. Patterson went 15-for-17 for the Detroit Lions this season before being released and signed by the Browns. Hopkins missed the final two games of the regular season with his hamstring injury and also didn't take part in the first practice of the week on Tuesday.

  • Dustin Hopkins Won't Kick In Week 18

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. It will be the second straight missed game for the 33-year-old booter. Cleveland will be hoping Hopkins will be ready to roll for the wild-card round of the postseason next week. When healthy, Hopkins has been a fantasy relevant kicker this year, especially since quarterback Joe Flacco arrived and jumpstarted this offense. In 15 games in his first year with the Browns, Hopkins has gone 33-for-36 on field-goal attempts and 24-for-26 on extra points. With Hopkins being held out again this weekend, Riley Patterson will do the kicking for Cleveland and should be avoided in fantasy lineups with the Browns resting some of their key starters, including Flacco.

  • Dustin Hopkins Not Practicing Thursday

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice on Thursday. Hopkins was forced to sit out on a short week in last Thursday night's win over the New York Jets and doesn't appear close to returning for a meaningless Week 18 regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday. The most likely scenario is that the Browns will rest the 33-year-old kicker and any other injured players like receiver Amari Cooper (heel) as they rest up for the wild-card round of the playoffs next week. Cleveland is already locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC, so Hopkins is likely to miss a second straight game this weekend. If that's the case, Riley Patterson will do the kicking for the Browns in Week 18. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a kicker.

  • Dustin Hopkins Still Dealing With Hamstring Injury

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice on Wednesday. Hopkins wasn't able to kick in the Week 17 win over the New York Jets last Thursday night and might be forced to miss a second straight game this Sunday to close out the regular season against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns are already locked into the No. 5 seed for the playoffs, too, so they aren't going to rush any injured players back onto the field for this one in a meaningless game. As of right now, the veteran 33-year-old booter is looking like a fantasy option to avoid in fantasy lineups in Week 18, even if he ends up being active. Riley Patterson filled in for Hopkins in Week 17 and would get the starting nod again if Hopkins is ruled out this weekend.

  • Riley Patterson Joins Browns Active Roster

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    The Cleveland Browns elevated kicker Riley Patterson from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster for Thursday night's contest against the New York Jets. The Browns signed Patterson to their practice squad on Christmas after Dustin Hopkins injured his hamstring in the Week 17 win over the Houston Texans. Hopkins has been ruled out for Thursday Night Football, so the 24-year-old Patterson will take over as Cleveland's kicker for at least this week. In 13 games for the Detroit Lions this year, Patterson made 15 of his 17 field-goal attempts and missed two of his 37 extra-point tries. Fantasy managers would be wise to avoid Patterson in starting lineups in his debut for Cleveland against a defense that could make it difficult for the Browns to move the ball consistently like they have been doing in recent weeks.

  • Dustin Hopkins Won't Play In Week 17

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the New York Jets. He suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the Houston Texans and was estimated as a non-participant on Monday. The 33-year-old has been terrific this season, ranking as the No. 2 kicker in fantasy football after converting 24 of 26 extra points and 33 of 36 field goals. He will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis going forward. Cleveland signed kicker Riley Patterson to its practice squad and will presumably elevate him to the active roster before kickoff on Thursday night.

    Cut once again by the Lions, Riley Patterson cleared waivers on Christmas Day. After making more than 88% of his field goal tries this season, the young kicker has another gig.

  • Dustin Hopkins Estimated As Non-Participant Monday

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (left hamstring) was estimated as a non-participant on Monday. While they didn't hold an official practice, the Browns evidently have some level of concern regarding the veteran kicker's status leading up to Thursday Night Football against the New York Jets. Hopkins initially suffered his injury while trying to make a tackle during a kickoff this past Sunday. He did not return to the game, and Cleveland bolstered its depth at the position by signing Riley Patterson to the practice squad on Monday. Fantasy managers invested in Hopkins' status should pay attention to his designation on the final injury report, which will be issued on Wednesday afternoon.

  • Dustin Hopkins Uncertain To Return

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. The veteran kicker suffered a hamstring injury during the first half of this game. There is no word yet on the severity of the issue, so fantasy managers will have to wait and see if he'll be able to continue. The expectation is that punter Corey Bojorquez will handle the kicking duties until Hopkins returns.

  • Dustin Hopkins A Top-15 Option In Week 16

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins made both of his field goals, including the game-winner, in a Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears. Hopkins has been excellent in his first season with the Browns, hitting 33 of his 36 field-goal attempts and 22 of 24 extra points. In Week 16 he will take on the Houston Texans on the road. Houston's defense has been generous to kickers in 2023, allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the position. Hopkins is in play as a top-15 fantasy kicker for Week 16.

  • Dustin Hopkins A Decent Fantasy Kicker In Week 15

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins made his lone field goal and added four extra points in a Week 14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hopkins has been a reliable kicker for Cleveland this season as his 31 made field goals lead the NFL. He will look to keep it going at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 15. The Bears have been middle-of-the-road against kickers in 2023 as they are allowing the 16th-most fantasy points per game to the position. Hopkins is in play as a solid fantasy kicker heading into Week 15.

  • Dustin Hopkins A Low-End Option In Week 14

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins made both of his field goals and one of his two extra points in a Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Hopkins has been a reliable kicker for the Browns in 2023 as he's made 30 of his 33 field goals and all but two of his 18 extra points. Hopkins will kick against the Jacksonville Jaguars at home in Week 14. The Jaguars have been tough on opposing kickers this season as they are allowing just the 29th-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Hopkins is a middling fantasy kicker in Week 14 thanks to a Cleveland offense that has struggled to move the ball at times since Deshaun Watson was lost for the season after Week 10.

  • Dustin Hopkins A Low-End Option In Week 13

    Headshot for Dustin Hopkins

    Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins made both of his field goals in a Week 12 loss to the Denver Broncos. Hopkins has been a reliable kicker for the Browns in 2023 as he's hit 28 of his 31 attempts, including seven FGs from 50+ yards out. He will now take on the Los Angeles Rams on the road in Week 13. The Rams have been generous to opposing kickers this season as they are allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. There are simply too many question marks surrounding the Cleveland offense with Joe Flacco making his first start for the team this week, leaving Hopkins as a low-end fantasy option in Week 13.
