Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (calf) could miss four to six weeks because of the calf injury, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Huddle Up: Hunt is expected to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, which will keep him out for at least three weeks. D'Ernest Johnson is in line for a bigger role in the offense and could start if Nick Chubb remains sidelined. Johnson can be a No. 2 back or flex option in fantasy leagues if he starts.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 18. The Browns did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Njoku was held to one catch for six yards in the last game and has posted under 20 yards in three of the last four games. He probably will see a few targets in Week 7 but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 18. The Browns did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Beckham should be available for the Week 7 game, but fantasy players will know more in a few days. He posted a season-high 79 yards and will continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if active.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 18. The Browns did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Chubb was not able to play in the last game and probably will sit again since it is a short week. D'Ernest Johnson likely will be the main running back for the Browns if Chubb and Kareem Hunt are not available for the Week 7 game and can be at least a flex option and could be a possible low-end No. 2 back in some leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 18. The Browns did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Mayfield aggravated his injury during the Week 6 game but is confident that he will play this week. He can be a possible starting option in two-quarterback leagues but should be avoided in standard leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (calf) will be out several weeks due to his calf injury and will likely go on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: D'Ernest Johnson was the only other back to have a carry in Week 6. He'll likely back up Nick Chubb if Chubb can return in Week 7. Baker Mayfield is also ailing, and they play Thursday night. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Chubb and Mayfield held out in hopes of returning for Week 8. Johnson is a must-add, and Demetric Felton may be as well as they could split time Thursday night.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) said his left shoulder dislocated again in Week 6. 'It dislocated again and then slipped out again on a non-contact play,' Mayfield said. 'Just got to figure out a way to get it better.' Mayfield said it felt worse than the original dislocation, and he'll have an MRI Monday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Mayfield says he'll play Thursday night. We're not sure how realistic that is if they want to remedy this issue the best they can. If he sat out, he'd have two full weeks to heal up before taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers Halloween night. Mayfield is 26th in fantasy points at the position the last three weeks. So it's very clear the injury is affecting him, and he shouldn't be starting in fantasy right now.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku managed just one catch for six yards with two targets and one drop in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Njoku exploded for seven receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers last week, which was very unexpected. He was back to doing nothing, which is what we saw in Weeks 2 and 4 in his previous two outings. He cannot be trusted as anything more than a low-end TE2 in most fantasy leagues for Week 7 against the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) left the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals in the second quarter, but was able to return in the second half. He finished with five grabs for 79 yards on eight targets.
Huddle Up: Beckham might have been in line for a huge role with Nick Chubb inactive, and the team changing up its usual run-heavy approach. But he exited, and Donovan Peoples-Jones stepped up instead. Beckham could still have some nice fantasy appeal in Week 7 against Denver on Thursday with a quick turnaround, but it doesn't help Baker Mayfield is a bit limited with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, too. Treat OBJ as more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option at this point.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones registered four receptions for 101 yards and two touchdowns, including a Hail Mary at the end of the first half, in the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones picked up the pace with Odell Beckham Jr. in and out of the game and Jarvis Landry still sidelined. Despite the huge game, at best he is a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Denver Broncos on Thursday. He could be a sneaky play in DFS, however.

Cleveland Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson rushed once for two yards while adding a seven-yard reception in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Johnson obviously did very little here, but he could be in line for a giant workload in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos on Thursday. Nick Chubb was inactive, and Kareem Hunt was carted off in the fourth quarter, putting him in jeopardy for Week 7. Johnson could be the featured back in a run-heavy offense, making him worth a roll of the dice in some fantasy leagues and DFS.

Cleveland Browns OT Jedrick Wills (ankle) and OT Jack Conklin (knee) have been declared inactive for the Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: The loss of both tackles will make the Browns skill players riskier options for fantasy players, but Hunt and Beckham should still be starting options in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) is officially active for the Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Hunt will receive most of the work at running back with Nick Chubb sidelined and should be at least a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) returned to practice this week but won't be activated off the Reserve/Injured list for Week 6, it was reported Saturday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Landry has been out since Week 2 as he recovers from a sprained MCL, and it looks like it'll be Week 7 or 8 with the wideout having been designated to return earlier this week.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Njoku posted a season-high 149 yards in the last game and has been targeted 17 times in four games this season. He likely will see a handful of targets against the Arizona Cardinals, but fantasy players likely have better options and can keep Njoku on the bench.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hunt seems to have a decent chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his status. He will receive most of the work at running back if he plays and can be at least a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) has been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Kareem Hunt made it back to practice today, and he's a top-five option at the position universally.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) returned to practice Friday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Hunt will be an RB1 in PPR leagues whether Nick Chubb, who was idle Friday, plays or not.

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list, and he can resume practicing Friday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Landry would be an immediate flex option if he's fit to return. But it's very unlikely he'll play in Week 6.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Njoku posted season highs in receptions, targets and yards in the last season and should see a handful of targets against the Arizona Cardinals. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. needs to touch the ball more, Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said Thursday, Oct. 14. 'He's a good player, and getting him the ball is important to all of us,' Van Pelt added.
Huddle Up: After only four catches for 47 yards on 10 targets the last two games, it sounds like we may have a squeaky-wheel situation here with OBJ. Treat him as a solid WR3/flex option this week with ample upside.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Njoku is coming off an outstanding Week 5 performance but his status for Week 6 is uncertain. He likely will see a handful of targets if he plays this week and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Hunt's status over the next few days. He has received at least 10 carries in each of the last four games and has five rushing touchdowns on the season. He should be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues if he is active.
