Found September 11, 2013 on Fantasy Sports Locker Room:

The final numbers tell one part of the story, but, fantasy football is a game of volume. Knowing in a given week who is going to get the looks and in what situations can help you make important lineup decisions, touches and targets on a weekly basis play as big a role as the name on the back of the jersey. Trent Richardson carried the ball 13 times for 47 yards, another sub 4.0 YPC effort. However, when taking into account how poorly Cleveland’s line played against Miami it was actually a fairly strong effort. He made 8 would be tacklers miss and ranked highest, by a wide margin, in PFF’s ‘elusiveness rating’ which measures, essentially, how a back fares without help from his blockers.

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden calls Sports Illustrated report “comical”

I’ve read the first story that came out and literally I laughed throughout the entire thing. It’s comical for a lot of reasons and I won’t take a lot of time to go through the whole deal, but obviously it’s dealing more with before I got there.

What are the Browns in for this Sunday: WFNY takes on M&T Bank Stadium

As the sun was setting over the western end zone of M&T Bank Stadium last Thursday, I was standing on the mid-field emblem—a script B and an R married with the two flags which ensconce the helmets of the Big Ten-bound Terrapins—along with roughly a dozen other individuals. The stadium, 71,000 purple seats and two end zone jumbotrons, was completely empty. Somewhat eerie in...

Cleveland Browns: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

I thought the Browns would be competitive with the Dolphins on the strength of their front 7 and their offensive line, but Brandon Weeden’s poor performance made that impossible, as he completed 26 of 53 for 289 yards, 1 touchdown, and 3 interceptions. Their secondary also did not look good. Joe Haden was great as always, shutting down Mike Wallace, but Haden’s value is minimized...

Trent Richardson shocked he didn’t play more on third down

The Cleveland Browns don’t have too many standouts on offense, but Trent Richardson is one of their best weapons. Richardson rushed for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, and he caught 51 passes for 367 yards and a touchdown. Richardson is fast, super strong and a good receiver.
