Cleveland Browns Week 9 Fantasy Starts/Sits

New, comments

Oh, goodie -- another opponent that is good at defending the pass and the run against a Browns offense that can't do anything. Does that spell good things for the Browns' fantasy players this week? No way, especially since Peyton Hillis will not be able to play again due to his hamstring injury.

I am going to keep tonight's fantasy advice brief so I don't have to keep writing about how bad it would be to start some of our players. Chris Ogbonnaya will likely be the featured back, and even though he made some mistakes last week, he could still get you around 8-9 fantasy points with a typical 50 yards rushing and 30 yards receiving. There's always a chance he could get a touchdown if the Browns manage to get in the vicinity of the goal line, so if you are incredibly thin at running back, he can still be a spot starter.

Phil Dawson is a safe bet as always, but I don't know if I like the Browns' defense this week. If Cleveland's offense continues to struggle, I think Arian Foster will have some short fields to work with and be able to turn in a few touchdowns.

Long story short: start Dawson, and consider Ogbonnaya if you have backs that are injured or on the bye.
