| Jordan Cameron active, Bernard Pierce Out -- Sun Sep 21 11:35 am --|
Ravens without starting running back

FF Today's Take: Cameron can be inserted into fantasy lineups with the understanding that his shoulder could easily be re-aggravated. With Pierce out, Justin Forsett will handle more of the rushing load with Lorenzo Taliaferro working in a backup role.

FF Today's Take: Cameron was limited on Thursday as well and will be a gametime decision. It's hard to get excited about Cameron as a fantasy play given the risk of re-aggravating his shoulder injury. Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge would fill in for Cameron if he sits.

Likely questionable at best for Week 3

FF Today's Take: Cameron sat last week after leaving early in Week 1. With the Browns on a bye in Week 4, it makes a ton of sense to give their talented tight end another two weeks to get his shoulder right. Cleveland doesn't have anything close to a Cameron clone on the roster, so Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin should continue to see their fair share of targets against the Ravens.
| Jordan Cameron not expected to play -- Sun Sep 14 7:00 am --|

FF Today's Take: Cameron missed practice all week. Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray are likely to see more reps at the tight end position but neither is a recommended fantasy play.

FF Today's Take: Cameron has missed practice all week but the fact the Browns have listed him as questionable means they believe there's an outside chance he will play. Still, you should be making other plans for your tight end position this weekend. Gary Barnidge would likely see increased opportunities but won't be on the fantasy radar.
| No update on Ben Tate, Jordan Cameron -- Mon Sep 8 4:45 pm --|
Injuries caused both players to miss time in Week 1

FF Today's Take: Injuries that keep players from returning to game action that week typically do not bode well for their status the following week. Tate's injury-history is well-chronicled and should make Terrance West - if not Isaiah Crowell - attractive free-agent or trade targets this week. Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge filled in for Cameron following his departure, but neither player is worthy of fantasy consideration.
|Josh Gordon to miss the 2014 season -- Wed Aug 27 1:35 pm --|
|Josh Gordon will miss the entire 2014 season after the NFL upheld the Cleveland Browns star's yearlong suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. "I'd like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans," Gordon said. "I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing office didn't exercise better discretion and judgment in my case." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Finally. You can cross Gordon of your re-draft cheatsheet for this season. The league will determine at a later date when Gordon is eligible to be reinstated. Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, and tight end Jordan Cameron will be the top three targets for the Browns' quarterbacks. Outside of Cameron, fantasy owners can avoid the Browns passing game.
