2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Cleveland Browns
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Browns have an underrated defense so don't discount them to win some games if the offense can produce a little. The offense is the big concern, though, with few weapons offensively and a likely rookie starting at quarterback. The Browns could use a run-first approach with new running back Ben Tate and rookie Terrance West. Cleveland is likely a few years away from making the playoffs but should make some progress this year. Things are trending upward for the most part.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
With Josh Gordon's status up in the air, the Browns are going to be looking for options in the passing game. We think Andrew Hawkins could be the most targeted receiver on the team. He could be a real good find in PPR leagues. Don't expect big touchdown or yardage totals but he'll get a ton of catches. Hawkins also can make plays after the catch, which is another plus for the coming season. Someone has to catch passes in this offense, and Hawkins seems like the best guy to do so.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Miles Austin is likely to be a starter for the Browns but don't expect him to play like he did during his best days in Dallas. He has been very injury prone the last few seasons and likely has a rookie quarterback throwing him passes. Austin might be worth a spot start or two but the days of him being a sure fantasy thing are over.
