Barkevious Mingo Fantasy Football News 2020

Browns OLB Barkevious Mingo will have "minor" knee surgery and miss "at least a couple of weeks," according to Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. That might make it tough for the former top-10 pick to finally nail down a full starting role, especially given that rookie OLB Nate Orchard has pleased his new team. Mingo's getting harder to believe in even for dynasty IDP use. He registered just 7 total sacks over his 1st 2 seasons but is still signed through 2016, with a club option for 2017.

The Browns will go without LB Jabaal Sheard for the 3rd straight week because of a knee injury.  Sheard put in limited practices this week and said he was excited to return, but the knee apparently isn't quite ready for action yet.  First-round pick Barkevious Mingo has started in his absence and delivered sacks in 3 of his 4 games (after missing Week 1).
Browns LB Jabaal Sheard is inactive for the 2nd straight game.  Rookie LB Barkevious Mingo will start in his place once again and carries nice upside in big-play IDP leagues.
Browns rookie LB Barkevious Mingo will make his 1st pro start vs. Cincinnati today.  Regular starter LB Jabaal Sheard is out with a knee injury.  Mingo played about 52% of the team's defensive snaps over the 1st 2 weeks but tallied a sack in each game.  He's an upside option in big-play IDP leagues for Week 4.
Browns rookie LB Barkevious Mingo will spend a 2nd straight night in the hospital Friday after suffering a bruised lung in Thursday night's meeting with the Lions.  The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that he's expected to miss a week or 2 of action but that the team's optimistic he'll be ready for the regular season.  Mingo isn't likely to grab a starting job early in the year but should play a key role in the Browns' pass rush.

The Browns stayed at #6 and drafted LSU OLB Barkevious Mingo.  The selection sure looks damning for Jabaal Sheard.  The former 2nd-round pick became an OLB when Cleveland switched from a 4-3 scheme to 3-4 this offseason.  Sheard has said he feels comfy with the change, but the new Browns regime would likely prefer that Mingo win the starting job.  Free-agent addition Paul Kruger will lock down the other spot.
