2015 Fantasy Football Rookies: Todd Gurley, Melvin Gordon Lead Top-25 Rookie Projections

Evaluating college talent and projecting their eventual destinations is what makes the NFL Draft process such an entertaining and debate-provoking area of the NFL off-season. But once these players are drafted, the focus begins to shift away from their college evaluation and more towards how they fit with their new team. Looking at the top offensive rookies from a fantasy-focused...

Best options to fill the Cleveland Browns’ void at wide receiver left by Josh Gordon

The ever-changing roster of the Cleveland Browns still needs some fine-tuning before training camp, particularly on offense. With training camp just over a month away, the Browns need to fill the void left by WR Josh Gordon, who is suspended indefinitely, but for sure sitting out the entire 2015 season. It is a tall task for the one who is asked to pick up the slack during Gordon’s...

In Depth 2015: Cleveland Browns

It was an up and down year for the Cleveland Browns, who used a mid-season surge to get into playoff contention before sliding to 7-9 in 2014. But for a team on its third head coach in three seasons – one that made two first-round picks, neither of whom produced in their first year – and missing its biggest weapon in Josh Gordon for most of the season, to still produce the team’s...

2015 NFL Draft: Top 5 Wide Receivers the Cleveland Browns Should Target

With the Cleveland Browns headed into yet another uncertain offseason, the focus falls on the same two positions as it does seemingly ever season–quarterback and wide receiver. Veteran Brian Hoyer is set to meet free agency, and his future with the team remains uncertain. Meanwhile, rookie Johnny Manziel has been woefully unprepared for the NFL, and some are even saying he has...

Cleveland Browns: Trading Johnny Manziel and Josh Gordon Would Not be Unprecedented

With the reportedly poor attitudes, missed meetings and off-field incidents, it should come as no surprise that the Cleveland Browns fanbase should fall divided about two of their most prominent NFL stars. Rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and star wideout Josh Gordon have fallen upon hard times on their paths to become elite NFL players, but have they done enough for the Browns...

Week 12 Whiparound

My initial reactions to Sunday’s early games… The return of Josh Gordon was everything we thought it would be. He doubled up the next highest Cleveland receiver with 16 targets, catching half of them for 120 yards. Brian Hoyer had an awful day with no touchdowns and three interceptions, yet Gordon still went for 8-120. That’s all you need to know. Gordon’s a must-start stud...

There’s no secrets with the Cleveland Browns’ offensive game plan this season. They’re going to run the ball. And run it again.

One of the most talented dogs in the dog pound was kenneled for 2014, and it leaves fantasy owners wondering if anybody else is capable of leading the pack.
