Let's take a look at which members of the Cleveland Browns should you buy or sell heading into your Week 16 fantasy football match-ups as the Browns take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

(Key: Buy / Sell / Enticing)

  • QB Johnny Manziel - The Chiefs have allowed the 11th fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this year, and despite Manziel having some semi-decent games, it's only leading to about 15 fantasy points. He's not going to break out against the Chiefs' defense, so sit him.

  • RB Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson - Although the Browns will probably try to commit to the running game early, the Chiefs have a very solid front unit defending the run. The Chiefs allow the 5th fewest fantasy points to running backs.

  • WR Travis Benjamin - Strangely enough, the Chiefs are allowing the 6th most fantasy points to wide receivers this year. With Cleveland's unit depleted at receiver, Benjamin might be up against Sean Smith of the Chiefs, who sometimes is susceptible to big plays. If Benjamin can get behind him, Manziel might try taking a shot or to. The Chiefs gave up 128 yards and 1 touchdown to WR Kamar Aiken last week, so Benjamin could be looking to follow in his footsteps.

  • TE Gary Barnidge - The Chiefs allow the fewest fantasy points to tight ends. From what I can tell, they haven't allowed a touchdown to the position all year, and they've allowed the fewest yards, a credit to safety Eric Berry. Barnidge has defied defensive odds before, so I think he's still worth a buy despite the Chiefs' defense.

  • K Travis Coons - You can't take Coons, knowing he won't kick from long-distance and and in fear that he'll have another kick blocked.

  • DEF/ST Cleveland - The Chiefs don't turn the ball over. They do allow a lot of sacks, but there are better options out there, especially when Cleveland's secondary has been so bad.
