Comment: Cameron will be facing double teams on most passing downs this season.
|Cameron locked in as prime target for Browns|
Question marks at WR figure to make him go-to option
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 21, 5:00 pm
|There are three reasons for Jordan Cameron to be the most popular Browns player in fantasy leagues. One, his breakout 2013 season signaled his maturity as an NFL playmaker. Two, the teamís sorry situation at wideout makes Cameron a No. 1 read in the passing game. Three, heís playing to secure his future financially in his contract year. The key to Cameronís 2013 season was keeping himself on the field and out of the trainerís room. If he can do it again, he will lead the team in receptions, yards and touchdown catches.

FFToday's Take: Cameron represents something of a double-edged sword for fantasy owners in 2014. Will the fact that he is the No. 1 option in the passing game allow him to post receiver-like numbers? Or will the bevy of double teams, physical coverage, schemes or the Browns' run-heavy offense bring his production down? He should be a solid fantasy TE1 option in all redraft leagues, but his case is not as open-and-shut as it appears on the surface without Josh Gordon around.
|Cameron "impossible to cover" during spring|
Reportedly showing improved footwork and explosion

|Browns TE Jordan Cameron was impossible to cover in the spring. Maybe itís just mundane OTAs and minicamp. Or maybe Cameron, 25, is still improving as a dual-threat receiver who can line up anywhere; a scary thought. Last season, the Browns targeted Cameron 117 times. Only Jimmy Graham and Tony Gonzalez saw more passes slung their way. Comparing the film, the 6-foot-5, 249-pound Cameron has shown improved foot work and explosion in the open field once he has the football. (ClevelandBrowns.com)|
FFToday's Take: Cameron could very well be improving as a receiver, but he's going to be hard-pressed to repeat last year's success given the likely year-long absence of Josh Gordon, which will allow defenses to focus all of their attention on him. It also doesn't figure to help him that QB Johnny Manziel will likely move ahead of Brian Hoyer at some point this season. One other note: five of Cameron's seven touchdowns last season came in the first four weeks.
