Cleveland Browns Roster
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) is not expected to undergo surgery, and he will play in the Pro Bowl. It's great news for a Browns offense that will be looking to shake off the disappointment of the 2019 season heading into 2020. Landry was the team's most consistent wideout last year, catching 83 passes for a career-high 1,174 yards and six touchdowns over a full season. In his six NFL seasons, Landry has had at least 81 receptions and four touchdowns and has never missed a game. He's a very consistent WR2/3 in PPR leagues, and the presence of Odell Beckham Jr. should continue to take attention away from him.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (abdomen) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to fix a core muscle injury. A full recovery is expected. OBJ didn't miss a game in his first season with Cleveland despite fighting through injuries. He caught 74 passes for 1,035 yards and only four touchdowns in what was a very disappointing first year with the Browns. Quarterback Baker Mayfield was extremely inconsistent behind a terrible offensive line, which didn't help matters for Beckham's fantasy owners. Another offseason to gain chemistry with Mayfield should help Beckham rebound in 2020, and he could be a nice value pick as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been accused of simple battery after an incident in the locker room following LSU's national championship win over Clemson on Monday night. Beckham was caught on video spanking a police officer on the backside during the post-game locker room celebration. New Orleans police have issued a warrant for Beckham's arrest following the incident. The Browns have since released a statement that they are aware of the issue and that they have been in contact with Beckham and his representatives. This is the second issue to stem from Beckham's attendance at the game on Monday night as he was also caught on camera apparently handing money to LSU players on the field after the win. Neither situation is likely to impact Beckham from a fantasy perspective but it's just another issue for the Browns organization to contend with this offseason.
The Cleveland Browns will hire former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their new head coach. Stefanski was reportedly the runner-up to failed head coach Freddie Kitchens last offseason and remained a favorite of some in the Cleveland front office, namely chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta. The 37-year-old heads to Cleveland after calling a run-heavy offense for the Vikings for the past year and a half, dutifully carrying out Mike Zimmer's edict to "establish the run" in Minnesota. Look for the analytic-minded Stefanski to call a more even mix of run and pass plays in Cleveland. While it remains to be seen who Stefanski taps as his offensive and defensive coordinators, Cleveland is rumored to be reuniting with Philadelphia Eagles' Vice President Andrew Berry as their new GM just 11 months after he left Cleveland for the Philly job.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield will be on the hot seat in 2020 after a disappointing sophomore campaign, especially after the team fired general manager John Dorsey and head coach Freddie Kitchens. Mayfield's completion percentage (59.4, down from 63.8 in his rookie season), TD-to-INT ratio (22:21, down from 27:14), yards per attempt (7.2, down from 7.7), passing yards per game (239.2, down from 266.1) and passer rating (78.8, down from 93.7) all declined from his rookie year. Cleveland's offense may not have fit Mayfield well and the offensive line was terrible, but he was expected to overcome those issues, especially with an improved supporting cast of Odell Beckham Jr. and Kareem Hunt. Mayfield still has the talent to be a QB1 in the NFL in fantasy, but he'll be drafted as merely a QB2 with upside in fall drafts.
