Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway posted two grabs for 22 yards on four targets in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Callaway was a little better than his debut on Monday night after a four-game suspension. However, he still has a ways to go before fantasy owners can trust him on a regular basis. The Browns are off in Week 7.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry finished with three receptions for 36 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: That's six games and Landry has just one 100-yard game and he has failed to find the end zone in every outing. He has three or more grabs in each contest, which is great for fantasy owners in PPR leagues, but he remains more of a WR4 in standard play at this point. The Browns are off in Week 7.

Cleveland Browns TE Ricky Seals-Jones successfully converted three of his six targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones has slid into the role vacated by the injured David Njoku, serving as the No. 1 tight end in Cleveland. He is more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues, however. The Browns will return in Week 8 after the team's bye.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted six receptions for 101 yards on 11 targets in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Beckham finally had a decent yardage total after three mediocre outings, and it was his first 100-yard game in three home outings while tying a season best in targets. He'll look to carry over the momentum in Week 8 after the team's bye.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 20 times for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks while adding five receptions for 17 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Chubb got off to a bit of a slow start, but he has managed to post at least 87 rushing yards in each of his past four games while finding the end zone five times. The Browns might be struggling in the win-loss column again, but Chubb is a legit RB1 in most fantasy formats. You'll need to make alternate plans with the team on a bye in Week 7, however.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 22-of-37 passes for 249 yards, one touchdowns and three interceptions in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. He also rushed for 35 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Mayfield is making too many mistakes, as that's now just five touchdowns and 11 interceptions through six outings, including at least one pick in each of the contests. Fantasy owners cannot trust him right now, as he is doing more bad than good. Perhaps he'll use the bye in Week 7 to try and right the ship.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is healthy enough to play in Week 6, but head coach Freddie Kitchens said he is not sure if Higgins will be active for the game.
Huddle Up: It appears like Higgins has dropped on the depth chart while he has been injured and could be a healthy scratch this week. Fantasy players can avoid Higgins until he receives a regular role in the passing game.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Higgins appears to be on track to play against the Seattle Seahawks, but his role in the passing game is uncertain. Fantasy players may want to see him play in a game before considering him as a starting option.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Beckham has been quiet over the last two games but is still one of the better receivers in the NFL. He should still be a starting option in all leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Higgins has missed the last several games but appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 6 game. His role in the passing game is uncertain with Antonio Callaway also back in the lineup, so fantasy players may want to see him play in a game or two before considering him a fantasy option.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Beckham has had disappointing games the last two weeks with only four receptions and 47 yards combined in those games. He will be facing a solid Seattle Seahawks defense this week but should still be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (leg, shoulder) had his leg and shoulder wrapped after the Week 5 game against the Sean Francisco 49ers according to reports. However, head coach Freddie Kitchens doesn't expect the issues to linger. 'I am sure he was bumped and bruised,' Kitchens said Wednesday, Oct. 9. 'He got hit more than I would like him to get him, but he will be fine.'
Huddle Up: Maybe Mayfield will be fine physically, but his game was certainly sick in the Week 5 game against the San Francisco 49ers, posting his worst completion percentage and lowest yardage total in a game since becoming a starter. Things do not seem to get better with a tough Seattle Seahawks defense coming to town in Week 6, so fantasy owners will want to beware.

Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway will remain as the No. 3 wideout for head coach Freddie Kitchens in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. 'I definitely will,' Kitchens said in a conference call Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Callaway played 21 snaps in his season debut in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers, and it was mostly a disaster. While he might stick as the No. 3 wideout, he should be used as a WR5 only in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Higgins hasn't played since the season-opener against the Tennessee Titans when he caught two of three targets for 46 yards. He could serve as a flex option as a bye-week replacement in Week 6 if active.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Beckham has largely been a disappointment to fantasy managers this season, but he continues to be a must-start when active.

Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway had no receptions on two targets in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Callaway was back from a four-game suspension, but he looked rusty. Fantasy owners will want to see him return and show some consistency before trusting him in the active lineup again. The Browns host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6.

Cleveland Browns TE Ricky Seals-Jones had no receptions and just one target in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones and Demetrius Harris had just one grab for no yards on three targets, as the tight end was forgotten on Monday. The Browns haven't had anyone step up at the position since David Njoku went down. Avoid both RSJ and Harris heading into Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry posted four receptions for 75 yards in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Oct. 7. In this game he recorded his 500th NFL reception, on a 20-yard pass from WR Odell Beckham Jr., oddly enough.
Huddle Up: Landry had a respectable fantasy line on a night where those were few and far between for Cleveland. The Browns are back in action at FirstEnergy Stadium in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. had just two receptions for 27 yards on six targets in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Oct. 7 and he added two runs for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: It was another disappointing night for Beckham, who was limited to two grabs for 20 yards last week in Baltimore. He also hasn't scored since Week 2 against the New York Jets. In the back of fantasy owners minds, they wonder how long it will be until the honeymoon in Cleveland is over and Beckham starts to become unhappy with his lack of production. The Seahawks are up next in Week 6 in Cleveland.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 16 times for 87 yards in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Oct. 7, and he also had a 12-yard reception on his only target.
Huddle Up: Chubb just missed a 100-yard bonus for scrimmage yards, but he was easily the best fantasy option wearing an orange helmet in a sound beating. He'll look to continue running well in Week 6, but he faces another difficult matchup at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 8-of-22 passes for 100 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers and he was pulled late in the fourth quarter.
Huddle Up: Mayfield was awful, but so was the rest of the team. Poor tackling, no pass protection, etc. Mayfield and the Browns will look to bounce back against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6. Mayfield has devolved into a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams right now.

Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Callaway missed the first four games of the season, so he could be eased back into the offense. He probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues this week but will have value moving forward if he takes over the No. 3 receiver role.

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 5, and and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 7 at San Francisco.
Huddle Up: Higgins is trending the right direction after being limited Thursday and Friday, and is looking like we could see his first game action since Week 1. He's a low-end flex consideration with the Browns looking like they'll have a full complement of wideouts.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb will remain the team's primary back even after the return of RB Kareem Hunt from suspension, according to The Athletic's Jay Glazer, who says Hunt will be used as a change of pace.
Huddle Up: Chubb has been Cleveland's best offensive player over the first month and is solidly among the top-10 fantasy backs. The caveat has always been how much Hunt will play when he returns from suspension. If Glazer is correct, Chubb should remain an RB1 throughout the season with Hunt being a possible flex option upon returning.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (concussion, shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Landry appears to be on track to play in Week 5 as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver this week if he is active.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (concussion) cleared the concussion protocol Friday, Oct. 4, and he's expected to practice.
