Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson has complied with all the terms following his 11-game suspension for violations of the personal conduct policy and is officially active.
Huddle Up: He'll be a low-end QB1 against Houston Sunday. His presence should give Nick Chubb a boost, too, as teams will have to account for Watson's threat through the air and on the ground.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones registered two grabs for 16 yards on his four targets in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: The yardage total was his lowest since Week 3, when he was held to just one 10-yard catch on three targets. Peoples-Jones had 61 or more receiving yards in each of his previous five outings, and four or more grabs in seven straight contests before the disappointing showing Sunday. He is expected to be working with DeShaun Watson under center going forward, so we'll see what kind of rapport he has with the new quarterback. Keep treating him as a WR4 or flex fantasy option until further notice.

Cleveland Browns QB Jacoby Brissett completed 23-of-37 passes for 210 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while adding 27 rushing yards on two attempts.
Huddle Up: It was expected to be Brissett's final start, as DeShaun Watson's 11-game suspension is scheduled to end next week. If Watson starts Week 13 against the Houston Texans, obviously Brissett's fantasy value is back to nothing.

Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson (suspension) remains on track to be reinstated by the National Football League from his 11-game suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy Monday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Watson could return to action in Week 13 against his old team, the Houston Texans. Although he has performed like a QB1 in the past, fantasy owners should temper their expectations in what will be Watson's first regular-season game in nearly two years.

Cleveland Browns WR Amari Cooper (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Cooper will continue to be the main option in the passing game and will see a good amount of targets this week. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 25, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Njoku is coming off a disappointing Week 11 performance but has posted at least 70 yards in four of his last six games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle, knee) will play as expected in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters it remains to be seen if Njoku will play much more than the 28 snaps he logged in his return from injury in Week 11.
Huddle Up: The Browns are technically only three games out of a playoff spot, but it is highly unlikely they will sniff the postseason in 2022. Thus, it makes even more sense for the Browns to take their time with Njoku in hopes he can be closer to 100 percent in a few weeks. Fantasy managers should not expect much of an improvement over last week's 2-17-0 line in what figures to be a fairly even split in playing time with Harrison Bryant.

Cleveland Browns WR Amari Cooper (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Cooper has been the top receiver for the Browns for most of the season and has been posting very good numbers most weeks. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Njoku was able to return to the lineup last week but was held to 17 yards. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation to see if he will be able to practice later in the week. He could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues if active.

Cleveland Browns WR Amari Cooper (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Cooper posted his fourth 100-yard game of the season last week and is a popular target for Jacoby Brissett in the passing game. He should be a starting option in all leagues this week.

Cleveland Browns WR Amari Cooper posted eight receptions for a game-high 113 yards and two touchdowns in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: There is no way Cooper would have done this much in snowy Buffalo, so fantasy managers were very happy to see the change of venue to Ford Field. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 14 times for just 19 yards in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills, while adding three grabs for 48 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: It was a stunning stat line for Chubb and his fantasy managers, particularly in the rushing department. He had 4.4 or more yards per attempt in every game this season, going for 5.7 yards per attempt overall. In fact, since the start of the 2020 season, he had just one previous game with 3.5 yards per attempt or lower in a single game. He'll look to bounce back in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cleveland Browns QB Jacoby Brissett completed 28-of-41 passes for 324 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills while adding seven runs for 29 yards.
Huddle Up: Brissett was one of the biggest beneficiaries of the venue change from snowy Buffalo to the dome of Ford Field, turning in his finest fantasy stat line of the season. Still, he is nothing more than a mid- to low-level QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Njoku was a limited participant during the last two days of practice but may still be a game-time decision. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues if he plays but can also be benched if better options are available.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle) is listed as questionable on the final Week 11 injury report.
Huddle Up: Njoku logged practices on the final two days of the week. Njoku has a tough matchup but is still in the TE1 conversation considering the position's landscape.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: No word yet on his level of involvement, but it was likely a limited session. On the plus side, it is the first time he has stepped onto the practice field since his Week 7 high-ankle sprain. While it might be another week before he is able to play, it is a great sign he is close to returning. If he can return to full health, Njoku has a great chance to serve as a high-end fantasy TE1 the rest of the way - especially considering how few great options there are left at the position.

Cleveland Browns WR Amari Cooper (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Cooper is coming off a disappointing Week 10 game but still ranks in the top 20 in the NFL with 585 yards and the top 10 with five touchdowns. He should see a good amount of targets this week and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson (suspension) took part in his first practice with the team on Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Watson still has to sit two more games to finish out his 11-game suspension, but fantasy managers should be jumping on him now if they have an open roster spot and are in need of a quarterback, as it'll only get harder to grab him the closer it gets to his return in Week 13. The Browns quarterback has traditionally played like a QB1, thus we should expect that moving forward, but temper expectations in his first game back since Watson hasn't suited up in a contest since 2020.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones hauled in five receptions for a game-high 99 yards on nine targets in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones has come alive in recent weeks, becoming the preferred target of Jacoby Brissett with defenses paying extra mind to Amari Cooper. DPJ has posted four or more receptions in six consecutive games to make PPR fantasy managers happy, and he is good for 71 or more yards in four straight, and five of the past six outings. In standard leagues he is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Njoku was hopeful he could make it back in time for Week 10, but it was not meant to be. Week 11, which should have been considered the most likely return date for him in the first place, will give him close to four full weeks from his Week 7 high-ankle sprain. Harrison Bryant is expected to draw another start in Njoku's place, but it is at least notable that Bryant failed to catch a pass in the team's last game.
