Five Bold Predictions: Cleveland Browns, Baker and Beckham

Five Bold Predictions for the Cleveland Browns

Frank Ammirante | May 17th, 2020

Entering the 2019 season, the Cleveland Browns were one of the most hyped teams in football. The acquisition of star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and the continued development of promising quarterback Baker Mayfield created high expectations for the team. The Browns finished the season as the biggest disappointment in the league – poor coaching, porous offensive line play, and regression from Mayfield resulted in a 6-10 record. Fresh off a strong offseason, the Browns look poised to deliver on last year’s expectations in 2020. Here are five bold, but attainable predictions for the Cleveland Browns.

Connor’s Top Sleepers in the 2020 NFL Draft

Connor Neal | April 20th, 2020

Just as in any draft class, some prospects get slept on and aren’t chosen as early as they should be. Which is why sports websites love to do “re-drafts.” Prospects that have been slept on in recent history include Tyreek Hill, Yannick Ngakoue, Dak Prescott, and George Kittle

Super Bowl LIV is just three weeks away and yesterday I broke down the complicated ins and outs of free agency. Today I’m going to break down the top upcoming free agents at several positions. A lot of these players will likely be given the franchise or transition tag assuming they don’t reach a long term deal before free agency begins.

Cleveland Browns 2019 Season Recap

Daniel Corrigan| January 11th, 2020

With the additions of Odell Beckham Jr., Olivier Vernon, and new head coach, Freddie Kitchens, the Browns came into 2019 with high expectations. Well, everything possible went wrong. Bad playcalling, horrendous offensive-line play, and some drama inside the locker-room led to a 6-10 record and a third-place AFC finish.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns

Mike Fanelli November 14th, 2019 

Two weeks from today is Thanksgiving and that means the NFL regular season is on the back nine. With the San Francisco 49ers losing in overtime Monday night to the Seattle Seahawks, every team has lost at least one game this season. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins pulled off their second straight win, defeating the Indianapolis Colts, throwing NFL draft junkies for a spin. Last week’s Thursday night game between the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers was entertaining, close, and offered plenty of fantasy points.

Waiver Wire Targets for Week 10

Steve Miller | November 5th, 2019 

What a wild week it was. The Patriots finally lost, the Dolphins finally won, and every single home team got the win. Russell Wilson and Christian McCaffrey continued their dominant seasons while Tyler Lockett reaped the benefits of Wilson’s big day. In week 10, we have a half dozen teams on bye, so let’s look for some options on the waiver wire.

Waiver Wire Targets For Week Nine

Steve Miller | October 29th, 2019 

It’s that time of year – the time where fantasy rosters feel stagnant and stale. I am always looking to wheel and deal in late October to help stack my lineup for the playoffs, but I’m also keeping an eye on the waiver wire for a late season gem. Guys like Jaylen Samuels last season or Tim Hightower a few years back can become late season league winners in fantasy football, you just have to pick them up.

Steve Miller | September 24th, 2019 

Before we talk about who to buy and who to sell in week three, we should highlight a few awesome performances. If you missed last week’s article, then check that out before scrolling here, as many of the players are still available (though not in the under 50% owned threshold), see Demarcus Robinson.

Are The Browns The Real Deal?

Daniel Corrigan | September 5th, 2019

It’s hard to believe that we are talking about a team that won seven games last season, being darkhorse contenders. It’s also hard to believe that the team we are talking about is the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Battle: Rashaad Penny vs Kareem Hunt

Mike Fanelli | Aug 28th, 2019 

Everyone has a different strategy when it comes to drafting their fantasy team. Some like to go “zero RB”, while others like to use the best player available approach. While there isn’t necessarily a correct way to draft your team, every fantasy expert will recommend to build up your running back depth in the middle rounds. Each year there is a running back that gets drafted in the middle rounds that turns out to be a plug and play starter for fantasy owners. In this fantasy battle, we will take a look at two potential options currently going in the eighth round according to Fantasy Football Calculator.

2019 Season Preview: Cleveland Browns

Daniel Corrigan | August 12th, 2019

The Cleveland Browns finished the 2018 campaign with a 7-8-1 record. For 99 percent of teams, this would be a season to forget. But when you are 1-31 over your previous two seasons, this is an amazing start to an amazing rebuild.

The Browns rookie class was highlighted by Baker Mayfield, who broke the NFL rookie touchdown record with 27. The Browns also got production from rookies Nick Chubb, Denzel Ward, and Antonio Callaway.

After a loss to Pittsburgh, Hue Jackson and Todd Haley were fired and replaced by Greg Williams and Freddie Kitchens. Continue reading

The 2019 NFL season is right around the corner! The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is tonight, meaning we have just five weeks till opening night.

On The Hunt For A Bold Prediction

Matt Woolsey  | April 4th, 2019

I was in a twitter argument a couple days ago over Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. The question was if you had to choose between one of these three running backs: David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, or Nick Chubb, who would you choose? Continue reading

Is Le’Veon Bell a possibility for the Chiefs?

John Wagner | December 13th, 2018

Le’Veon Bell will be a hot name going into free agency as he held out for the 2018-19 NFL Season preserving his body for the upcoming season. He is expecting $17 Million this season and could have a monster season back with a new team. It will most likely not be the Pittsburgh Steelers as the relationship has soured and the Steelers have clearly shown they are willing to move on from him by starting James Conner and letting Bell sit on the bench while not giving him a new contract.

Darrel Williams Could Be the Future

John Wagner | December 4th, 2018

By now everyone has heard of the dilemma at the Kansas City Chiefs running back position. In February, Kareem Hunt was involved in an altercation in a Cleveland hotel where he allegedly assaulted a 19-year old girl.

One For the Ages: A Film Breakdown of Rams vs. Chiefs

Pranav Ramasubramanian | November 26th, 2018

The Kansas City Chiefs at 9-1 and first place in the AFC against a 9-1 Los Angeles Rams team that was second in the NFC was a sure shot to be a great game. This game pitted two great offenses, two great offensive-minded head coaches and two great quarterbacks against one another with a location change to Los Angeles due to bad field conditions in Mexico. The game ended up being one of the highest scoring games in the history of the NFL and the greatest Monday Night Football game exceeding all expectations.

Nick Popio | November 1st, 2018

Week 9 in the NFL is upon us. Cincinnati, Indianapolis, the New York Giants, Philadelphia, Arizona, and Jacksonville will all be idle for the busiest bye week of the fantasy season. That means no A.J. Green, Eric Ebron, Saquon Barkley, Zach ErtzDavid Johnson or a banged up Leonard Fournette. So here’s the latest list of top 10 runners and pass catchers who can help fill in for these bye week superstars.

Buying, Selling, and Trading on the Fantasy Market – Week 4

Brian DeWester | September 29th, 2018

Ah, yes, trading in fantasy football. One of the things that can give hope to the hopeless or the bored something to do. Although, finding the right deal isn’t always easy. You have to identify players that you can realistically acquire (based on what you’re willing to give up), and then craft an offer that would appeal to your would-be trade partner. While the last step is important, the focus of this article is to help you identify players that are worth trading away and trading for. And as always, it’s important to remember that not every trade can fit into the ideal “buy low/sell high” mold. With that being said, it’s time to look at what I’m buying and what I’m selling after three weeks of football.

Are You Tilting Right Now? Cause You’re Not Alone.

Matt Woolsey | September 21st, 2018

As I scroll through Twitter I have seen so many polls on do I trade David Johnson, do I trade Kareem Hunt. If you drafted either one of them this season, you may be on full tilt right now. Not only are we entering Week 3 of the regular season and Patrick Mahomes seems like he would rather push the ball downfield than check down to his running back but the Cardinals offense is complete trash. So where are you on Hunt and Johnson?

Kansas City Chiefs: 2018 Season Preview

Kody Clawson | August 27th, 2018

The Kansas City Chiefs were a streaky team last year. Although they finished 10-6, they were bounced out of the playoffs in a tough loss to the Titans. Can they find some stability this season with all the new faces in town?

Blood, Sweat, and Tiers – Tier 3

Frank Dyevoich | August 16th, 2018

The running back position once again reigns supreme in fantasy football. There seemed to be a trend leaning toward wide receiver dominance given the consistency of the guys at the top, but the elite play of the NFL’s best running backs over the past few seasons quickly put a stop to that. When preparing for your draft, you want to separate your running backs into tiers so you can find the best values without sacrificing production. Here is the fourth installment of Blood, Sweat, and Tiers. The first article on the rookies is here. The second on my likes and dislikes is here. Tier 4 is here.

Is There a Running Back That Can Surpass 2,105?

Cole Clore | August 4th, 2018

34 years ago, the NFL saw one of the most unbreakable records ever. Eric Dickerson in one season rushed for an incredible 2,105 yards. Dickerson averaged 131.6 rushing yards per game on an average of 23 carries per game, that means Eric averaged 5.72 yards per carry. Over the years, we’ve seen running backs come close: Adrian Peterson in 2012, Jamal Lewis in 2003, Barry Sanders in 1997, Terrell Davis in 1998, and Chris Johnson in 2009 all were within 100 yards of Eric Dickerson. With a new core of elite running backs in the NFL and coming soon, the question is if any of them can pass Eric Dickerson. I’ve found five running backs that could surpass 2,105.
