|Every so often a player comes along and the fantasy world seems to completely overlook their prospects. Such is the case with Little in 2012. As a rookie, Little had his ups and downs. On the plus size, he amassed 61 receptions for 709 yards despite the shoddy quarterback play in Cleveland last season and the fact he missed all of his final college season due to a suspension. Not as impressive was his touchdown total (two), his double-digit drops and his average yards per reception (11.6). Heading into 2012, Little stands out as the only wide receiver on the Browns roster capable of assuming a leading role and he figures to benefit from strong-armed rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden. With rookie burner Travis Benjamin on the roster, there is even a chance that opposing defenses may have to respect the deep ball more than they did in 2011. A converted running back, Little shed some pounds this winter and that should help his YAC totals. Heís being drafted as a high end WR4 under the assumption he will merely match his 2011 production and thatís a bargain given his upside and lack of competition for touches in the Browns passing attack.

Released by Cleveland on Friday

An inconsistent player whose flashes of excellence were often overshadowed by crucial drops and off-field drama, Little was released by the Cleveland Browns on Friday. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Little has been plagued by drops and inconsistency during his three-year career along with off-field issues. He won't have much fantasy value in Oakland looking up at James Jones, Rod Streater, Denarius Moore and Andre Holmes on the depth chart.
