Joe Haden Fantasy Football News 2019

6:11pm EST 11/12/17

Steelers CB Joe Haden suffered a fibula fracture in his left leg in Sunday's win over the Colts and is out indefinitely. The loss figures to hurt the Pittsburgh defense. Haden entered the week graded 34th overall among 117 CBs by Pro Football Focus, with his coverage play dragging along a poor run-D rating. We're not projecting a huge negative impact on the team defense, though.

Update: Pro Football Talk reports that Haden could miss as little as 3 weeks.

Browns CB Joe Haden (groin) is inactive for today's game at Miami. That only helps the Dolphins' passing game for fantasy purposes, which didn't need any help to begin with this week.

Browns CB Joe Haden had surgery on his right ankle Wednesday and likely won't return until at least training camp, according to Cleveland.com. Haden suffered the injury back in Week 8, but it was a concussion that actually put him on IR. The ankle reportedly didn't bother him until he began working out recently. The team expects him to "resume football activities during training camp," which means that Haden figures to miss all offseason workouts. We'll see what kind of shape he's in when he returns. Of course, CB might be the one position where inhibited play can enhance your fantasy value. If Haden's well enough to take the field but less effective than usual in coverage, he could see more targets and allow more completions.

The Browns have placed CB Joe Haden on IR with the concussion that cost him the past 5 games. Charles Gaines started for Haden against the Niners on Sunday but is no option for your IDP league. Cleveland's D isn't much of a fantasy option either.

The Browns will miss CB Joe Haden and S Donte Whitner for the 2nd straight game because of concussions. S Tashaun Gipson is also questionable because of illness. We'll see about his status for Sunday.

Browns CB Joe Haden suffered his 2nd concussion of the season in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Haden missed 2 games after his 1st, which makes it tough to expect a speedier return this time around. Cardinals WR Michael Floyd burned Haden for a long TD catch before the injury, so losing their top corner shouldn't alter the Browns' defensive outlook much. Replacement Pierre Desir contributed 5 tackles and 3 pass breakups vs. Denver in his 1st start this season and then 12 tackles and another breakup at San Diego. He'll present some stat upside Thursday night against the Bengals.

The Browns got CB Joe Haden (concussion) and S Tashaun Gipson (foot) back at practice Wednesday. Haden missed the past 2 games and Gipson the past 3. Arguably Cleveland's 2 best players in the secondary, the duo should significantly boost the Browns' pass D with their return -- not enough to make you worry about starting QB Carson Palmer or any Cardinals WRs against them in Week 8, though.

Browns CB Joe Haden remains out for Week 7 with a concussion. We'll see when he can get through the league protocol. His absence keeps CB Pierre Desir in the mix, though the Rams don't present a great matchup for DB value.

The Browns will miss CB Joe Haden (concussion) and S Tashaun Gipson (ankle) when they face the Broncos on Sunday. That obviously hurts an already beatable pass defense and should make for a nice Peyton Manning week. The Denver QB has already failed to deliver even in positive matchups such as last Sunday's against Oakland, however. He remains no more than a fringe starter.

The Browns expect CB Joe Haden to miss Sunday's game against the Broncos because of the concussion he suffered in last Sunday's win over Baltimore, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. CB Pierre Desir would likely start in Haden's place, as he did at San Diego in Week 4 when Haden sat out with a broken finger. Desir logged 5 tackles (4 solo) and 3 pass breakups in that game. He'll carry similar upside if he starts against the pass-leaning Broncos.

2:55pm EDT 10/11/15

Browns CB Joe Haden left Sunday's game at Baltimore with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning. He'll make for a solid IDP option if he can make it back in time for next Sunday's matchup with the pass-leaning Broncos.

The Browns will have LB Karlos Dansby (ankle) and CB Joe Haden (finger/ribs) in the lineup today against the Ravens. Both entered Sunday questionable but should be fine to use as you normally would in your IDP lineup.

The Browns have ruled out S Tashaun Gipson for Sunday against the Ravens because of the foot injury that pulled him early last week. CB Joe Haden is also questionable with the finger injury that kept him out of the loss to the Chargers. Cleveland listed him as probable for that game before the player asked out, saying he though he'd hurt the team by playing. We'll see what the finger says this time around.

2:13pm EDT 10/4/15

Browns CB Joe Haden is inactive for today's game against the Chargers. The FOX scroll listed him with a finger injury, though his ribs seemed to be a bigger concern coming out of last week's loss to the Raiders. Either way, you'll need to replace him in IDP lineups if you had planned to use him.

The Browns will get LB Karlos Dansby back today against the Panthers after he missed the past 4 games with a knee sprain. It 's tough to know whether the Browns will return him to his full role, though, or whether Dansby's knee will hold up. That makes him a risky IDP play, albeit one with upside. His return also makes it tough to use replacement Craig Robertson, who has delivered strong fantasy numbers in Dansby's absence. Cleveland will be without CB Joe Haden, who's inactive with a shoulder injury.

UPDATE: Dansby will reportedly start in his usual MLB spot, with Robertson starting at weak ILB over Chris Kirksey. We'd lean Robertson as the safest IDP option, with Dansby bringing the highest ceiling.

Browns CB Joe Haden left Sunday's game at Cincinnati in the 1st half with a shoulder injury. The team initially deemed his return questionable but then ruled him out early in the 2nd half. CB Justin Gilbert also left the game with a head injury, leaving depleted a secondary already playing without 4th CB K'Waun Williams and FS Tashaun Gipson.
