Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Browns LB Anthony Walker left Sunday's win over the Steelers with a hamstring injury. We'll watch for more on his outlook this week, but he seems like a solid bet to miss at least a game. If Walker does sit out Week 12, we'd likely to looking at close to full playing time for LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. He'll be worth a waiver-wire look ahead of a Week 12 clash with the Broncos.

The Browns are hiring longtime NFL coach Jim Schwartz to run their defense. Cleveland fired DC Joe Woods after a season in which they fell from 5th in yards allowed, 13th in scoring defense and 11th in Football Outsiders DVOA to 14th, 20th and 23rd, respectively. Schwartz last coordinated the Eagles' defense from 2016-20. Overall, he has spent 19 years as DC (Titans, Bills and Eagles) or HC (Lions) in the NFL. Schwartz's defenses have tended to rank better against the run than the pass and have not proved especially helpful to LB tackle totals. He has generally focused on generating pressure with his front 4, often lining up edge players in a "wide 9" formation, well outside the OTs. We'll see about his specific plans for a Cleveland defense with some intriguing talent.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is awaiting further testing results on the left foot he injured in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports, however, that there's a chance the 2nd-year LB lands on IR. Deion Jones led Browns LBs in playing time against Cincinnati and should be the favorite to do so for however long JOK might be out. Cleveland just lost starter Sione Takitaki to an ACL tear in Week 13. Tony Fields II looks like the next man up behind Jones but played just 16% of snaps vs. the Bengals. We wouldn't be looking to start him in Week 15 IDP lineups.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah hurt his left leg late in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. He's getting an MRI today. "I'll be OK," the LB told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer after the game -- adding "we'll see" after mentioning the MRI.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah put in full practices all week and is off the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Bills. He missed the past 2 games with a knee injury but intimated this week that he felt ready to return last week against the Dolphins. LB playing time has varied in Cleveland this season, so it's tough to know who will stay on the field most among JOK, Sione Takitaki and Deion Jones. There's decent tackle upside to any, but the Buffalo matchup has been negative for LB scoring overall. That plus the playing-time uncertainty should have you leaning elsewhere in many close IDP lineup decisions.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. His playing time had already been shaky, so this shouldn't carry too much IDP impact. It does solidify Deion Jones and Sione Takitaki as the team's top 2 LBs for the game. See where they stand in our Week 10 IDP rankings.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (knee) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Bengals. That likely leaves Sione Takitaki as the #2 LB to Deion Jones. CB Greg Newsome II (oblique) and CB Greedy Williams (illness) are active

Browns LB Jeremiah Owes-Koramoah (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Bengals. He missed the entire practice week and is impossible to trust, given the late kickoff. CB Denzel Ward (concussion) has been ruled out for the 3rd straight game. Cleveland also might be without starting CB Greg Newsome II (oblique) and last week's #3 CB, Greedy Williams (illness). Both are questionable. We'll check their statuses Monday.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah has been cleared to play Sunday against the Falcons and carries no injury designation into the game. He left last Thursday's win over the Steelers early with a groin injury but progressed to limited practices the past 2 days. There's likely some added risk of re-injury vs. usual, but the absence of a questionable tag leaves us willing to play him. JOK has moved up our Week 4 LB rankings.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Browns don't expect LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah's groin injury from Thursday night to be a long-term issue. The team will monitor his progress in the coming week to see if the 2nd-year player will miss further game time.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah left in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Steelers with a quad injury. He's questionable to return. JOK could be seen trying to work out the issue on the sideline initially, but he then left for the locker room.
