The Browns are re-signing WR Rashard Higgins to a 1-year deal with $2.38 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter. It's good for Higgins' outlook that he stays with the team and QB that know him, but the money involved doesn't necessarily point to him commanding a key role. We'll see how the WR corps settles out in Cleveland.

Browns WRs Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, KhaDarel Hodge and Donovan Peoples-Jones have been activated from the COVID list. Barring a positive test, they'll all be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers.

Browns WRs Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge are eligible to be activated from the COVID list on Thursday if they continue to test negative, HC Kevin Stefanski said. So all 4 guys should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Browns WRs Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge have been placed on the COVID list as high-risk close contacts and are out for Sunday's game against the Jets. Those are Cleveland's top 4 WRs. Marvin Hall is the only other WR on the active roster. Ja'Marcus Bradley and Derrick Willies are on the practice squad. We wouldn't mess with that situation in Week 16 fantasy lineups. TEs Austin Hooper, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku should be busy tomorrow. Baker Mayfield, meanwhile, goes from a solid QB1 play to a shaky QB2. Expect a run-heavy game plan from Cleveland.

Update: Bradley and Willies have been promoted from the practice squad.

The forecast for today's Raiders-Browns game calls for sustained winds of 25-30 mph with gusts around 45 mph. If that holds, it'll be 1 of the windier games in recent memory. It'll definitely impact the deep passing and kicking games. We've scaled back our passing projections for both teams and would avoid both kickers in this game. We could see heavy doses of RBs Josh Jacobs and Kareem Hunt today.

The Browns have re-signed WR Rashard Higgins to a 1-year deal. His 2019 season was derailed by a knee injury, but Higgins went for 572 yards and 4 TDs on 39 catches in 2018. Consider him the early favorite for Cleveland's #3 WR job this year -- with Taywan Taylor, Damion Ratley, KhaDarel Hodge and rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones as the competition.

The Browns have released WR Antonio Callaway. He slipped to the the 4th round of the 2018 draft due to a plethora of off-field issues -- and that continued in Cleveland. We'll see if the 22-year-old gets another shot elsewhere. Rashard Higgins is back as the Browns' #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option unless we see this passing game get rolling.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Bills. He's been serving as Cleveland's #3 WR -- a role that now figures to go back to Rashard Higgins. Higgins isn't a viable Week 10 fantasy play, but he's worth keeping an eye on today.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. But HC Freddie Kitchens wouldn't say whether Higgins will play against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to insider Scott Petrak. Higgins operated as Cleveland's #3 WR in Week 1, but WR Antonio Callaway is in the mix now. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are the only Browns who should be in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins is inactive for tonight's game against the 49ers. It marks the 4th straight game he will have missed because of his knee injury. We'll see whether Antonio Callaway can wrest #3 WR duties from Damion Ratley in his return from a 4-game league drug suspension.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. Damion Ratley will again serve as Cleveland's #3 WR.

The Browns list WR Rashard Higgins (knee) as questionable for this weekend's game against the Ravens. He didn't practice on Thursday or Friday, though, so we're not expecting him to play. That'd again leave Damion Ratley as Cleveland's #3 WR.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Rams. Damion Ratley operated as Cleveland’s #3 WR with Higgins out last week.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Rams. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning, but you shouldn’t be waiting on Higgins.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins is inactive for tonight's game against the Jets. He's dealing with a knee injury that limited his practice participation all week.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets after a limited week of practice. If he can't go, former Titan Taywan Taylor could get a shot at #3 WR duties. It's obviously a situation to avoid outside of the 1-game DFS slate.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins has been working with the 1st team in camp so far, ahead of 2nd-year WR Antonio Callaway, according to Scott Patsko of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Even when Odell Beckham missed team drills Monday, Derrick Willies and Jaelen Strong reportedly stepped in for 1st-team reps over Callaway. The Browns' #3 WR spot will likely only matter in deep fantasy football leagues, but it's worth noting that Higgins looks like the early favorite -- especially after Callaway flashed some deep-ball abilities as a 4th-round rookie.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chiefs. We’ll be curious to see how these guys and Damion Ratley are deployed behind Jarvis Landry. One or 2 of them could have a nice fantasy day in what figures to be a pass-heavy game from the Browns as they try to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and Co.
