Denzel Ward Fantasy Football News 2021

The Browns announced Saturday that CB Denzel Ward won't come off the COVID list in time to face the Steelers on Sunday. Slot CB Kevin Johnson will also remain on the list. That leaves Cleveland down at least 2 of its top 3 corners against pass-heavy Pittsburgh. And we're waiting to see whether CB Terrance Mitchell will play. He's questionable with a non-injury issue.

Browns CB Denzel Ward landed on the COVID list this week, and Cleveland.com reports that he tested positive. That means Ward will not only miss Sunday's game against the Steelers but might also not be back in time for a playoff opener next weekend. We'll see about his status for that contest next week.

Browns CB Denzel Ward (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He put in limited practices all week after missing the past 3 games. Ward is a low-level fantasy option, and the Sunday night kickoff makes it risky to wait on him. We'll update his status Sunday evening, though.

The Browns expect lead CB Denzel Ward to miss "a few weeks" with a calf strain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Eagles, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. That leaves Cleveland without its top cover man and top pass rusher (DE Myles Garrette on COVID reserve) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The Browns defense still looks attractive, though, against a Jacksonville offense that hasn't topped 260 total yards since Week 9 and tossed 4 INTs to Pittsburgh in Week 11.

Browns DE Olivier Vernon (abdomen) and CB Denzel Ward (groin) are active for today's game against the Cowboys. Neither is a high-level IDP option. Ward could be busy, though, against Dallas' high-powered pass offense. Cleveland is expected to start CB Terrance Mitchell opposite Ward, in place of the inactive Greedy Williams (shoulder).

Browns LB Mack Wilson is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. If he plays, it would be his season debut after missing the 1st 2 weeks with the hyperextended knee he suffered early in training camp. Even if Wilson is active, he'd make for a shaky IDP option. Wilson fill-in Jacob Phillips (knee) is out for the 2nd straight game. CB Greedy Williams (shoulder) has also been ruled out for the 3rd straight game. Fellow starting CB Denzel Ward (groin) is questionable. Ward came down with the injury in Thursday's practice and then sat out Friday, so he looks like a big question mark for the game. His absence would enhance the matchup for Washington lead WR Terry McLaurin. Cleveland has also ruled out DE Olivier Vernon (abdomen), and replacement Adrian Clayborn (hip) is questionable. Clayborn put in just a limited workout Friday after missing the previous 2 days.

Browns starting CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are inactive for today's game against the Seahawks. That marks the 4th straight game both players will have missed with hamstring injuries.

Browns CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with their hamstring injuries. Both players missed the past 3 contests, but both also returned to limited practices this week. Neither should be in your IDP plans even if active.

Browns CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams will miss their 3rd straight games. Both are dealing with hamstring injuries and have yet to return to practice since going down. S Morgan Burnett is returning, though. He's active after missing the past 2 contests with a quad injury.

The Browns might get S Morgan Burnett back for Monday night's game against the 49ers. Burnett returned to limited practices Thursday and Friday and then a full workout Saturday, coming off 2 games lost to a quad injury. He's officially questionable. If you're looking to use him in your IDP lineup, make sure Jermaine Whitehead is available as a fallback. CBs Greedy Williams and Denzel Ward are also questionable again with hamstring injuries. Neither has returned to practice yet, though, after missing the past 2 contests. Expect both to miss another game.

As expected, Browns CB Denzel Ward (hamstring), SS Morgan Burnett (quad) and CB Greedy Williams (hamstring) are out for today's game against the Ravens. That's good news for WR Marquise Brown, QB Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore TEs.

The Browns have listed SS Morgan Burnett (quad), CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) and CB Greedy Williams (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. All 3 players missed the entire practice week, though, after sitting out last Sunday night's game against the Rams. We'd be surprised if any plays. Cleveland did, at least, get FS Damarious Randall back from his concussion. He practiced in full all week and didn't even appear on the final injury report. The situation of the secondary adds upside to Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson and WR Marquise Brown.

The Browns will face the Rams tonight without their top 4 DBs. FS Damarious Randall was ruled out early as he continues to recover from a concussion that also cost him Week 2. SS Morgan Burnett (quad), CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) and CB Greedy Williams (hamstring) all entered the day questionable but looked unlikely to play. The situation certainly helps the fantasy outlook for Rams QB Jared Goff and his pass-catchers.

The Browns could be without their entire starting secondary for Sunday night's game against the Rams. They've already ruled out FS Damarious Randall for the 2nd straight game with a concussion. SS Morgan Burnett is questionable with the quad injury that knocked him out of last Monday's game. He missed practice all week. Starting CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams each got added to the injury report Thursday with hamstring issues that kept them out of Friday's practice. IDP owners should plan on using none of these players for Week 3. The whole situation, meanwhile, can only improve the fantasy outlook for Rams QB Jared Goff and his receivers. Eric Murray and Jermaine Whitehead would be the starting safeties here, while Terrance Mitchell, T.J. Carrie and Tavierre Thomas look like the top 3 corners if Ward and Williams sit.

Browns CB Denzel Ward left Sunday's win over the Bengals after suffering his 2nd concussion within a month. Ward had missed the previous 2 games with his 1st career concussion before returning Sunday. The rookie is likely done for the year after this latest setback.

The Browns have ruled CB Denzel Ward (concussion) out for Saturday's game against the Broncos. That leaves Cleveland without its top cover man. It doesn't significantly boost the outlook for anyone in Denver's young WR corps, though.

The Browns have ruled CB Denzel Ward (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. DT Larry Ogunjobi (biceps) is questionable. He left last week's game early, opened the practice week on the sideline and then returned for a pair of limited workouts. The matchup's nothing special, though. Ogunjobi's not worth waiting for in most IDP leagues. We'll update his status Sunday morning anyway.

Browns CB Denzel Ward (hip), LB Joe Schobert (hamstring) and S Damarious Randall (groin) are active for today’s game against the Falcons. All are fine to use as planned in IDP lineups.

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.
