Cleveland Browns Fantasy Football News 2018

The Browns expect CB Denzel Ward (hip) to play today against the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He returned for limited practices Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday. Ward should be set to see plenty of Falcons WR Julio Jones.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert (hamstring), S Damarious Randall (groin) and CB Denzel Ward (hip) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Schobert put in limited practices all week after missing the past 3 games. Randall got a full practice in Friday after limited workouts the previous 2 days. Ward returned to limited practices the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday. Randall looks like the safest bet to play. We'll see about all 3 Sunday morning.

Browns LB Jamie Collins missed Wednesday's practice with a sprained ankle but is expected to return Thursday, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. We'll keep an eye on Collins' status heading into the weekend.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert returned to a limited practice Wednesday for the 1st time since he suffered the hamstring injury back in Week 6. Schobert then missed the past 3 games. We'll see if he's ready to play Sunday against the Falcons. If he is, Schobert and Jamie Collins will be the Cleveland LBs to use. Browns S Damarious Randall also put in a limited practice Wednesday after missing the loss to the Chiefs with a groin injury. Randall has dealt with multiple injuries throughout the season but practiced just once over the past 2 weeks (Friday of Week 8). Randall's Wednesday participation seems to put him on track to play against the Falcons, which should also put him in IDP lineups.

The Browns have placed LB Christian Kirksey on IR because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. That ends his season and could leave the Browns without 2 of their starting LBs for the Week 10 clash with Atlanta. MLB Joe Schobert has missed the past 3 games with his own hamstring injury. We'll see if he can make it back to the field this week, but he has yet to even practice since suffering the injury. Jamie Collins should be a safe bet for full playing time the rest of the way. Kirksey started at Schobert's middle spot against K.C., with rookie Genard Avery on the weak side. Avery looks like a good bet for more than 50% playing time the rest of the way now and could stick in the 60-75% range -- especially if Schobert remains out. Tanner Vallejo replaced Kirksey after last Sunday's injury and would likely enter the Week 10 lineup if Schobert sits again. Avery's worth a pickup in many IDP leagues this week, bringing pass-rushing upside to go with his recent playing-time upswing.

Browns LB Christian Kirksey left Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a hamstring injury and did not return. That's a new injury for a guy who missed 2 games earlier this season while dealing with shoulder and ankle issues. Cleveland has also been without MLB Joe Schobert since Week 6. We'll see about the status of Kirksey and Schobert for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. A Week 11 bye waits on the other side.

Browns CB Denzel Ward left Sunday’s game against he Chiefs early with a hip injury and has been ruled out. We’ll see about his status for a Week 10 meeting with Atlanta. A Week 11 bye could factor into the decision

Browns S Damarious Randall is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported he would be a "healthy scratch," but Randall missed practice all week with a groin injury. We'll see about his status for a Week 10 home date with the Falcons. Randall has been enjoying a solid season in both real-life and fantasy terms.

The Browns have ruled MLB Joe Schobert (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game. S Damarious Randall (groin), meanwhile, is questionable once again. That marks the 2nd straight week and 5th time this season. Randall missed all 3 days of practice this week, though, which is different. We'll check his status Sunday morning. You should make alternate IDP plans, though -- especially given a Chiefs matchup that hasn't been helpful to IDP scoring.

Browns S Damarious Randall (groin) is active for today's game against the Steelers. He has played through multiple "questionable" tags in recent weeks and remains fine for IDP lineups.

Browns S Damarious Randall is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, as he deals with ankle and groin issues. ESPN's Pat McManamon reports that the team expects Randall to play, however. Randall has played through several other "questionable" tags, but those were for a heel injury that didn't show up on last week's injury report. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.

Browns HC Hue Jackson said Monday that MLB Joe Schobert will be "down for a little while" with the hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to the team website. James Burgess replaced Schobert in that game but then left with his own hamstring injury and could also miss further time. Jackson said he and his staff would have to discuss the replacement plan behind Schobert and Burgess. OLB Jamie Collins reached a 90% snap share for just the 3rd time in 6 games against the Chargers and becomes more of an IDP starting option with the injuries in the middle.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert left Sunday's game against the Chargers early with a hamstring injury and we'll not return. We'll see about his status heading into a Week 7 meeting with the Buccaneers.

As expected, Browns LB Christian Kirksey (illness) and S Damarious Randall (heel) are active for today's game against the Ravens. Each guy entered the day questionable but is fine to use as planned in your IDP lineup.

Browns S Damarious Randall is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He played through a questionable tag on the heel injury at Oakland in Week 4. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.
