Grant Delpit Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2024

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates's Mary Kay Cabot reports that Browns S Grant Delpit might land on IR this week for a groin injury that's expected to cost him multiple games. Going on IR, of course, would cost him at least the final four contests of the regular season. If the Browns elect not to place Delpit on IR, it'll indicate they want to leave open the possibility of him returning. Either way, his 2023 season looks done for redraft IDP rosters. If you're playing for a fantasy championship in Week 17, will you want to start Delpit in his potential first game back from a two-week groin injury? (Same question if you play into Week 18.) Ronnie Hickman was Cleveland's only full-time safety for Sunday's win over the Jaguars, filling in after Juan Thornhill got ruled out pregame with a calf injury. D'Anthony Bell filled in after Delpit left. Hickman, an undrafted rookie, tallied just 2 tackles and a pass breakup. Bell -- a 27-year old with 20 career tackles -- collected 3 solos. It's certainly possible either guy finds numbers this Sunday against the Bears. But this isn't the time of year to take a chance on near-complete unknowns in your fantasy football lineup. Look for a more-proven replacement if you're losing Delpit.

Update: The Browns placed Delpit on IR on Wednesday.

Browns DE Jadeveon Clowney missed Wednesday's practice with an illness and an elbow injury. S Grant Delpit was limited with a hip issue. We'll see about the availability of each starter as the week progresses.

Browns S John Johnson III left in the 1st half of Sunday's loss to the Steelers with a neck injury. S Grant Delpit filled in the rest of the way and should start if Johnson misses further time. Johnson has been a disappointment on the fantasy-scoring front in his 1st Cleveland season, spending far less time "in the box."

Doctors determined Monday morning that Browns S Ronnie Harrison did not actually suffer a concussion in Sunday's win at Minnesota, according to Scott Petrak of the Chronicle-Telegram. Harrison left after just 2 snaps and initially entered the concussion protocol. He should now be ready to begin Week 5 practices on time.

Browns S Ronnie Harrison sustained a concussion in Sunday's win over the Vikings. If he's not ready for the Week 5 visit to the L.A. Chargers, then Grant Delpit would likely get his 1st start.
