Poyer had 11 total tackles and a stuff in Cleveland's Sunday loss to the Rams. The third-year corner filled in for an injured Tashaun Gipson, proving his worth with five solo tackles and six assisted tackles on the day. Despite the solid performance, the reserve has yet to prove himself as a starter in the Browns' defense, meaning that he will most likely not be a strong fantasy option just yet.
Browns safety Jordan Poyer will start Sunday afternoon against the Ravens, taking the place of Tashaun Gipson, who is listed as inactive due to an ankle injury. Poyer has worked his way on to the field for 20-plus snaps in three straight weeks. He should see significantly more time on the field this week, but whether or not it translates to an increase in Fantasy output remains to be seen.
The Browns list a whopping 16 players on their Friday injury report, but half are probable for the Week 17 battle in Pittsburgh, including All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas (back). The other offensive players among them are running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe). The four defensive probables are linebackers Paul Kruger (illness) and Tank Carder (shoulder), safety Jordan Poyer (toe) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder, illness). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) is also probable.
