Browns DST gets no help from offense
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Coming off an impressive showing against the league's No. 1 offense last week against Indianapolis, the Browns defense got a dose of reality Week 15 against Cincinnati, allowing 30 points on 347 yards. You could argue it didn't play that poorly, though. It's just with rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel making his first career start, the Browns defense was on the field for nearly 40 minutes.

The Browns ran only 38 plays in the 30-0 loss, allowing the Bengals to run 71. They did at least record two sacks and one interception, extending their streak of consecutive games with an interception to 10.

Though the Browns DST didn't have a strong showing in this one, it generally performs well with favorable matchups. It has a halfway decent one Week 16 at Carolina, so if you get in a bind, it might be worth using in Fantasy.

Browns DST surprises with tough matchup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Facing a Colts team that entered the day ranked first in both yards per game and points per game, the Browns DST wasn't expected to put up much of a fight in Week 14. But in terms of Fantasy scoring, at least in standard CBSSports.com leagues, it equaled its best performance of the season.

A couple defensive touchdowns, the first the Browns have had since way back in Week 2, really made the difference. Linebacker Craig Robertson recovered a fumble by quarterback Andrew Luck for the first, and defensive back Justin Gilbert returned an interception 21 yards for the second. In all, the Browns had four takeaways, including two fumble recoveries and two interceptions. They also had three sacks.

They did give up 25 points on 362 yards to the Colts, so again, the touchdowns made all the difference. You shouldn't count on those every week, but the Browns are hosting the Bengals in Week 15 -- the other team their DST scored 26 Fantasy points against. You can probably do better than the Browns DST for that matchup, but obviously, you have some incentive to use it if you get in a pinch.

Browns defense just OK at Buffalo
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though they had a decent matchup, the Browns were nothing special defensively Week 13 at Buffalo. True, they allowed just 287 yards to the Bills, but thanks in part to some offensive shortcomings (the Bills returned a fumble for a touchdown in the third quarter), they also gave up 26 points.

The Browns DST didn't have too many big plays of its own, recording two interceptions but only one sack, and has now gone three games without scoring double-digit Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues. With an unfavorable matchup Week 14 against Indianapolis, the Browns DST is an obvious sit in Fantasy.

Browns unsure if Tashaun Gipson will be placed on IR
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters Monday he's unsure if injured free safety Tashaun Gipson will be placed on the season-ending IR list, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

Gipson underwent an MRI on his injured knee, which revealed a Grade 3 MCL injury and no structural damage to his ACL. The injury could keep him sidelined approximately six-to-eight weeks. There's a chance Gipson could return in the postseason, if the Browns clinch a spot during the regular season. Pettine indicated it's "too early to start studying (playoff) scenarios."
