Season Outlook

There isn't much fantasy appeal to any player on the Browns offense. The franchises carousel of quarterbacks continues with eight different quarterbacks throwing a pass for the Browns last season. QBs Brock Osweiller and Cody Kessler will battle for the starting and both should be voided like the plague in fantasy drafts. Osweiller threw more interceptions (16) than touchdowns (15) during his 2016 with the Texans while tossing for just 2,957 yards in 14 games started. Kessler wasn't much better, as he started in eight games, completing 128 passes for 1,380 yards and six touchdowns whilst losing each game he started. 2016 first-rounder Corey Coleman underwhelmed his first season, suiting up in just 10 games while catching just 45.2 percent of footballs thrown his way. The team's receiving yards leader Terrelle Pryor signed elsewhere this season and the Browns replaced Pryor with Kenny Britt, who failed to prove himself as a threat in the Titans passing game. Coleman is expected to step up in a big way this season, but don't reach for him in redrafts with the lack of offensive talent the Browns possess. RB Isaiah Crowell exploded onto the fantasy football scene last season, starting in 16 games while rushing for 952 yards and seven touchdowns on 198 attempts. The one-cut style runner has proved his worth as a terrific RB2 with RB1 upside. The scheme second-year head coach Hue Jackson and the West Coast scheme he has brought with him to Cleveland hasn't had an impact on the team yet. Jackson's scheme is based off the traditional West Coast scheme but is filled with plenty of misdirection runs and short over-the-middle passes mixed in with different motions- making it difficult for linebackers and defensive backs to know what route is coming. With the right quarterback, this offense could take off, however, for 2017, fade the Browns passing offense.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis

Quarterbacks

Tyrod Taylor Bust

The Browns have done a solid job of assembling some young talent on both sides of the football. If some of those players develop earlier than expected, this team could threaten a .500 record with Taylor at the helm, which might prolong the beginning of the Baker Mayfield era until late in the season.

Baker Mayfield

Mayfield will have some fantasy value when he takes over under center for the Browns. But it won't be without growing pains, and barring an injury to Taylor it likely won't be to start the season. It's also important to remember that Taylor led the Bills to the playoffs last season, and it's not a stretch to suggest that there's far more talent in Cleveland then there was on last year's Buffalo squad. If Taylor keeps the Browns in the playoff hunt then making the switch to Mayfield mid-season becomes far more difficult to execute.
