Browns WR Amari Cooper drew a target on 32.4% of QB Jacoby Brissett's dropbacks in Sunday's OT win over the Buccaneers, turning his 12 looks into 7 catches for 94 yards. Cooper could have had even more but dropped a long pass late in regulation. He made up for that with a 46-yard reception to set up the game-winning TD run in OT. For the game, Cooper accounted for 30.4% of Browns receptions and 44.8% of receiving yards. WR David Bell ranked 2nd among wideouts with 4 catches for 23 yards on 6 targets. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones contributed just 2 receptions for 16 yards among 4 targets. WR Anthony Schwartz added 1 catch but ran for a 31-yard TD on a 1st-quarter reverse. Browns receivers should have a new QB next time out, with Deshaun Watson eligible to return from suspension in Week 13.

WR Donovan Peoples-Jones led the Browns in targets (11), receptions (6) and receiving yards (60) in Sunday's win over the Panthers. He beat WR Amari Cooper by 5 targets, while RB Kareem Hunt was the only other Cleveland player to catch more than 3 balls or crack 20 receiving yards. Cooper managed just a 3-17 receiving line on his 6 looks. Anthony Schwartz drew the only other 2 targets among WRs.

Browns WR David Bell got some reps with the 1st-team offense in OTAs, according to The Athletic's Zac Jackson. Amari Cooper is locked in as Cleveland's #1 WR, and it sounds like Bell, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz are competing for the next 3 spots on the depth chart. Bell has drawn positive reviews so far from both coaches and beat writers. Consider him the favorite for primary slot duties this season, making the rookie an intriguing late-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Browns WR Anthony Schwartz said he's not yet 100% recovered from lingering injuries. Schwartz missed a chunk of training camp with a hamstring issue — then sat out 3 games with a concussion. “It's not really soft-tissue stuff. It's a little bit more than that,” he said via the Akron Beacon Journal. “[I’m] mainly just getting my health back, trying to get everything from the season out of me, so I'm able to train fully and able to not have any setbacks. I really want to get my speed back to where I know it can be and being able to keep that speed up throughout the season and being able to stay healthy throughout the season, so I can contribute — be one of the top guys on the team.” Schwartz’s speed is indeed his best trait — he blazed a 4.27 forty-time at Auburn’s Pro Day. A 2021 3rd-round pick, the 6’0, 186-pounder carries some sleeper appeal in deep dynasty formats.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Ravens after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. DPJ isn’t a fantasy option at less than 100%. WR Anthony Schwartz (concussion) has been ruled out.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Lions. He tweaked his groin on Wednesday, was sidelined on Thursday and then limited in Friday’s practice. DPJ shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans at less than 100%. WR Anthony Schwartz (concussion) is out for Week 11.

Browns WR Anthony Schwartz sustained a concussion in Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. He had moved into a top-3 spot on the depth chart since WR Odell Beckham's departure. We'll track Schwartz's progress through the protocol.

Browns WR Anthony Schwartz (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. The rookie was surprisingly involved in the opener, catching 3 of 5 targets for 69 yards and carrying once for 17 yards. But he played just 53% of the offensive snaps and still can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Anthony Schwartz (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after a limited week of practice. The rookie tallied 5 targets and 1 carry in the opener but ran a route on just 55% of pass plays. He's not on the redraft radar at this point.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that WR Odell Beckham Jr. will not play Sunday against the Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Beckham missed Week 1 as well, despite reported optimism leading up to game day. We'll see about his participation in Week 3 practices.

The Browns took Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz with the 91st overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. A legit track star in high school and college, Schwartz unsurprisingly blazed a 4.27-second 40 time at his Pro Day. He’s just 6’0 and 186 pounds, though, and was below average in the jumping and agility drills. Schwartz was used as more of a gadget player than true WR at Auburn. He averaged just 12.2 yards per catch over his 3-year career and scored more rushing TDs (7) than receiving (6). The speed is intriguing, but Schwartz has a long ways to go to be a real fantasy factor. The Browns have Odell Beckham signed through 2023 and Jarvis Landry through 2022.
