Browns coach Hue Jackson said Duke Johnson needs to get more touches moving forward.

Johnson has touched the ball just 11 times on offense through two games. Jackson said the running back is one of their best playmakers and needs to touch the ball more, but it is tough to trust that will happen. Johnson needs to be relegated to fantasy benches for the time being.

Browns DE Emmanuel Ogbah (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Dealing with a sprained ankle, it was never realistic Ogbah would return on a short week. He should have a better shot to come back after the mini-bye.
Sep 18 - 12:43 PM

Browns FS Damarious Randall (heel) did not practice Tuesday.

He was also listed as a DNP on Monday, making it likely he sits out Thursday's game against the Jets. Derrick Kindred would likely start in his place.
Sep 18 - 12:40 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) was limited during Tuesday's practice.

Landry was also limited on Monday. It seems like the Browns are just taking it easy on Landry in a short week. It would be a surprise if he is not ready to face the Jets on Thursday night.
Sep 18 - 12:37 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) was limited in Monday's practice.

It's a new issue for Landry, but we're not overly concerned. The Browns square off with the Jets on Thursday night this week. Landry should be out there.

Browns signed WR Rod Streater, formerly of the Bills.

The career possession receiver takes Josh Gordon's spot on the 53.
Sep 17 - 5:13 PM

Browns signed K Greg Joseph.

Zane Gonzalez — who has had the season nightmares are made of — will be sent packing. We have never heard of Jospeh. He is an UDFA out of Florida Atlantic, where he converted just 69.5 percent of his field goal attempts in Conference USA. We wish the Browns good fortune.

Antonio Callaway played 50-of-62 (81 percent) snaps Week 2 against the Saints.

It was a sharp turnaround from Week 1 when he played well behind Rashard Higgins. Higgins still saw three more targets than the rookie, but Callaway put his stamp on the game with a 47-yard touchdown to tie it late in the fourth quarter. As talented as they come and looking at a big role, Callaway needs to be rostered in all formats.

Duke Johnson rushed three times for three yards and caught two passes for seven yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

Johnson had his second disappointing game in a row to start the year as he managed just five touches, his fewest in a game since Week 1 of last season. Through two games, Johnson has totaled just 35 yards on just 11 touches. He's not even worth consideration in fantasy at this stage until his opportunity expands heading into a Week 3 matchup versus the Jets.
Sep 16 - 5:22 PM

David Njoku caught 4-of-7 targets for 20 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

Njoku matched a team-high seven targets, but was a letdown for the second consecutive week for fantasy purposes. Through two weeks, he's now secured just 7-of-14 targets for 33 yards. Despite the back-to-back down games, his target volume is still tangible for a depressed fantasy position. Until he starts to turn that into production however, Njoku is only a TE2 option in Week 3 versus the Jets.
Sep 16 - 5:13 PM

Antonio Callaway caught 3-of-4 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

Starting for Josh Gordon, Callaway failed to draw a target in the first half Sunday, but made his presence felt in the second half when he had catches of 18, 47 and 16 yards. The highlight of his day was reeling in a 47-yard vertical shot on 4th down to tie the game late in the 4th quarter. Callaway will provide uneven production moving forward as a secondary option in the Cleveland passing game, but his season is trending upwards with the Browns moving on from Josh Gordon and should be looked at in deeper leagues. The Browns will host the Jets on Thursday Night in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 5:08 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 43 yards and touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

Hyde added one catch for seven yards in the passing game. It was the second-consecutive game where Hyde struggled on the ground, but was bailed out by a 1-yard rushing score, this time following a pass interference in the end zone. Hyde has now rushed 38 times for 108 yards through two games. He will remain a fringe RB2 in Week 3 versus the Jets.
Sep 16 - 4:58 PM

Jarvis Landry caught 5-of-7 targets for 69 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Saints.

After 15 targets in Week 1, we expected Landry to come to close to that number once again with the Browns shelving Josh Gordon, but that was not the case on Sunday. He still managed five receptions, the 19th consecutive game in which he's had at least five or more catches, the longest streak in the league. Landry will remain a strong WR2 asset Week 3 against the Jets.
Sep 16 - 4:55 PM

Tyrod Taylor completed 22-of-30 passes for 246 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 2 loss versus the Saints.

Taylor added 26 yards rushing on four attempts. Taylor was largely nondescript for the majority of Sunday, but connected on a 47-yard bomb to Antonio Callaway that tied the game on 4th down with 1:16 left in the game. Taylor will still remain a high-floor streaming option Week 3 when the Browns host the Jets on Thursday.
Sep 16 - 4:49 PM

Antonio Callaway is starting Week 2 against the Saints.

Callaway replaces Josh Gordon opposite Jarvis Landry. The Browns surprisingly gave Rashard Higgins more snaps than Callaway in Week 1, but with Gordon gone, Callaway will take over in two-wide sets. Callaway has a tough matchup against Marshon Lattimore this week, but his season outlook is on the rise.
