2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
If you are looking for a value sapping committee situation, welcome to the Cleveland backfield! Crowell the former five-star recruit from Alabama State was certainly outstanding considering he was an undrafted free agent that was fourth on the depth chart in the 2014 offseason. He finished second in the Brown’s three-headed ground attack with 148 carries for 607 yards, but paced the team in rushing touchdowns with eight. The 5’ll’’, 225lb back displayed patience and vision as he ran behind one of the league’s better offensive lines. Nearly 14 percent of his carries went for 10-plus yards, which means he found the holes and hit them quickly. While quickness and vision are strengths, tackle breaking and elusively were clear weakness for Crowell in his first season. He only broke 9 tackles out of 148 attempts, which tells me he benefits greatly from a superior run blocking line. Luckily for Crowell’s fantasy value, the line remains intact. Unfortunately for his fantasy value, Cleveland drafted Miami’s Duke Johnson in the 3rd round; meaning Crowell’s path to consistent playing time will be in serious jeopardy. He didn’t get much work in the passing game (only 9 receptions last year), and the Cleveland coaching staff has already stated that running back snaps will be dictated by game plan and practice reps, making Crowell’s weekly floor very suspect. Despite some of the negatives, Crowell is the team’s most talented runner and probable goal line back. The Browns are going to run a ton this year, but the three-man committee is going to suppress Crowell’s value to that of a RB3/4 instead of what could be an RB2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Browns' backfield likely to ride the "hot hand"
Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson considered the frontrunners
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 16, 6:35 pm

Cleveland Browns
Duke Johnson’s initial burst and speed in the open field were clearly established on film for the coaches to incorporate into game plans. Repetitions between all of the running backs, including Shaun Draughn and Luke Lundy, were divided pretty equally. OC John DeFilippo has made it clear there won’t be an exact science for how carries are distributed. As an example, if Terrance West were to rush for big yards in the first half of Week 1’s game against the Jets, the Browns may lean toward featuring him prominently during the second half.

FFToday's Take: It seems appropriate that a team with a severe lack of talent in the passing game would also have no answers in regards to how it wants to split up the work in the backfield. DeFilippo has compared Johnson to Giovani Bernard on multiple occasions, suggesting he will see the bulk of passing-down work. Isaiah Crowell is expected to get the first crack at early-down work, although West and Johnson could easily emerge as the "hot hand" in any given week.
