Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (hip, ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 23, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Landry will continue to play despite a broken rib and will see a handful of targets in the passing game. He will have a favorable matchup and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Njoku likely will be the starting tight end for the Browns this week with Austin Hooper sidelined. He has been recorded only five receptions and 63 yards in three games this season. Fantasy players probably can find better options, but Njoku could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hunt has played well since taking over the starting job and will see plenty of touches this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Mayfield threw for a season-low 119 yards last week and has four interceptions in the last two games. He will have a more favorable matchup this week but may only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper (appendix) is undergoing an appendectomy Friday, Oct. 23, and will miss the team's Week 7 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, head coach Kevin Stefanski announced.
Huddle Up: Hooper had been coming on with at least 10.2 PPR points in each of his last three games, but it's time for a late-week tight end switch with Friday's sudden development.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Mayfield has thrown three touchdowns and four interceptions over the last two weeks and has been held to under 200 passing yards in four of the last six games. He can be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but should be avoided in standard leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (hip, ribs) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Landry revealed he is dealing with a broken rib, but he probably will be on the field this week. He has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games but can still be a flex option in fantasy leagues because of the matchup.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ribs) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Hunt was held to a season-low 40 yards last week but should have more success against the Cincinnati Bengals. He will be the main option in the running game for the Browns and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (hip, rib) told ESPN's Jake Trotter that he suffered a broken rib in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Landry's toughness has rarely ever been in question, as he has yet to miss a game in his six-plus year NFL career. However, the combination of offseason hip surgery and this injury is conspiring to keep him from producing at his usual 80-plus catch levels. The Browns go on their bye in Week 9, but the reality is Landry needs more than a couple of weeks to heal up. Consider him little more than bench depth in most fantasy leagues for the time being.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) is doing well as he makes his way back from a knee injury, and he has been participating in all team meetings. 'You all haven't seen the best of him,' running backs coach Stump Mitchell said Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Chubb remains sidelined and it's uncertain exactly when he'll be back, but it's a good sign that he is engaged and around the team. Kareem Hunt continues to see a lion's share of the work in the backfield in Chubb's absence with D'Ernest Johnson as the primary backup.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. had comments about COVID 19 on Wednesday, Oct. 21, and doesn't feel he will contract the virus. 'No, not in an arrogant way, I just don't think COVID can get to me,' Beckham said. 'I don't think it's going to enter this body. I don't want no parts of it, it don't want no parts of me. I think it is a mutual respect.' He was sent home last week after alerting the team he didn't feel well, following protocols. He is no longer on the injury report this week.
Huddle Up: Beckham missed practice last week because of a non-COVID illness, but was able to play in Week 6. He has had just one strong game for fantasy owners in six outings this season, which obviously isn't a great percentage. He is more of a WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 in Cincinnati.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (chest) was limited at practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Mayfield should be good to go come Sunday with a limited practice this early in the week. He'll be a low-end QB1 with the Browns favored to win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Hunt's coming off his least productive game of the season, but he has a much better matchup in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals and will remain the bellcow back with Nick Chubb still sidelined. Hunt is an RB1.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (ribs) came out of Week 6 sore, but nowhere near as sore as he was after last week, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Huddle Up: Mayfield was 10-for-18 for 119 yards, one score and two picks. He's 26th in fantasy points at the position. He'll have the Cincinnati Bengals this week, and you could maybe make the case to start him if your starter has a bye.

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper caught five of his six targets for 52 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: After a painfully slow start to the year, Hooper has caught five passes in three straight games and has topped 50 yards in back-to-back outings. He's a streaming option against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry caught three of his five targets for 40 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Landry has been held below 50 receiving yards four times in six games and has yet to have more than five catches. A Week 7 meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals looks friendly on paper, but he managed three catches for 46 yards in the first meeting. Landry is a low-ceiling flex option, at best.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught two of his four targets for 25 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: It was Beckham's second outing of the year with less than 30 receiving yards, and he still hasn't had a 100-yard effort or more than five catches in a game. He has flashed his big-play ability on occasion, but he is a boom-or-bust WR3 heading into a Week 7 meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed 13 times for 40 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hunt never found much room to work, and the lopsided score limited his carries. On the bright side, he dominated the backfield touches. Hunt should be a solid RB2 against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was benched during the Week 6 game and has been replaced by QB Case Keenum.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Mayfield is out of the game because of injury or performance, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (ribs, hip) is active for Week 6's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Landry had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He can be used as a WR3 or flex option in what is likely to be a high-scoring game.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (chest) will start Week 6's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Mayfield had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two limited practice sessions and one full session during the week. He has thrown at least two touchdown passes in each of the last four games and can be viewed as a low-end QB1 or suitable bye week replacement in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (illness) will be allowed back in the team's facility Saturday, Oct. 17, if his most recent COVID-19 test - taken on Friday, Oct. 16 - comes back negative, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter. Assuming the test comes back negative, it 'seems very likely' Beckham will play in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: There's not much else to say right now other than to check back sometime Saturday morning or afternoon for an update. For what it is worth, Beckham is reportedly feeling better than he did Thursday. The Steelers are not a great matchup for even the healthiest of receivers, but they have been susceptible to big plays from wideouts so far. If Beckham is cleared to go, fantasy owners should expect modest WR2 production from him this weekend.

Huddle Up: Landry has a good chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. Landry is off to a slow start this season but can be still be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.
