Cleveland Browns RB Demetric Felton was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: One has to think that D'Ernest Johnson earned his way to Nick Chubb's primary backup this week after a 19-99-0 line on the ground and a 7-58-0 line through the air. Johnson will be a flex option, and it's best to take a wait-and-see approach with Felton.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Demetric Felton (illness) has been ruled out for Week 10's game against the New Orleans Saints, after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week despite being vaccinated, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Huddle Up: D'Ernest Johnson figures to receive the bulk of the carries in the Cleveland backfield this weekend, since Nick Chubb will also be sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19, and he is worthy of consideration as an RB2 option in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Demetric Felton tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday, Nov. 9. He is vaccinated and will need to test negative twice 24 hours apart to play in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Nick Chubb also tested positive, and D'Ernest Johnson could be the only back available for Week 10. Pick him up for insurance.

Cleveland Browns WR Demetric Felton had two receptions for a team-high 51 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Felton is an impressive looking rookie who has some upside, but he is only worth a roster spot as a reserve in deeper seasonal fantasy leagues at this point. The Browns host the Chicago Bears in Week 3.

Cleveland Browns WR Demetric Felton is 'getting plenty of work on special teams' during training camp and should 'make an immediate impact as a returner' this season, according to Jim Trotter of ESPN.com.

Cleveland Browns WR Demetric Felton has been practicing at both running back and wide receiver at organized team activities, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski Wednesday, June 2. 'He has done both with us already,' Stefanski said. 'He has been in both meetings. There have been times he is a running back for that day and a wide receiver the next day. It does speak to his versatility. It speaks to his ability to mentally handle that.'
Huddle Up: Felton's ability to play both positions could give him a shot to earn playing time in the Browns' crowded backfield and receiving corps. He'll make for a strong keeper or dynasty pick in 2021 fantasy drafts, but he's unlikely to start the season with much value in redraft leagues.
