  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Playing time dwindling

    Schwartz was not targeted and played five offensive snaps in Thursday's 29-17 win over Pittsburgh in Week 3.

    Schwartz's playing time has dropped in successive weeks, from Week 1's 22 snaps to 12 then five. He has return experience and was in the mix during the preseason, but those chores have gone to others the first three weeks. Schwartz is offering little to the Browns or fantasy managers.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Goes untargeted in loss

    Schwartz was not targeted over 12 snaps in Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Jets in Week 2.

    Schwartz's playing time slipped from 23 snaps Week 1, one more than rookie David Bell, to 12 in Week 2, eight fewer than Bell. The Browns have a quick turnaround for Week 3's matchup with the Steelers on Thursday. Thus far, only tight ends Jesse James (wrist, out) and Harrison Bryant (thumb/thigh) are banged up, so it might be more of the same for Schwartz this week.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: One catch in win

    Schwartz caught one of two targets for 19 yards and ran twice for 20 yards in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Panthers.

    Schwartz had a difficult preseason during which he had an injury and a case of the drops, wiping out any chance of winning the No. 2 job. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski stressed the wideout has the support of coaches and teammates however, and that appeared to be the case in Week 1. He played 23 snaps, well below the 66 each for top receivers Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones, but Schwartz had a key 19-yard grab on third-and-four on a fourth-quarter drive that produced points. He also had a pair of end-arounds, providing extra value in an offense that's expected to be ground-based with Jacoby Brissett under center.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Has support of coach

    Schwartz has had a shaky preseason, but Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski affirmed the team's belief in the wide receiver, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports. "Anthony had a tough stretch - I think everybody understands that - but we support our players," Stefanski said. "We support our players when they are going through a tough stretch."

    Schwartz had a number of drops this preseason and struggled to find consistency during training camp. Entering Week 1 against Carolina, Schwartz sits fourth on the depth chart and is not expected to play a significant role in the offense, which should feature a heavy dose of the running game while Deshaun Watson is suspended.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Uninspiring in finale

    Schwartz caught one of six targets for eight yards in Saturday's preseason finale against the Bears.

    Schwartz is a lock to make the roster, but his preseason production doesn't engender much hope for him as a fantasy asset. Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reported Schwartz had at least two drops among the five balls he didn't catch Saturday, which prompted boos from the Browns fans at FirstEnergy Stadium. Schwartz has five drops over three preseason contests. At this point, Cleveland's wideout corps consists of Amari Cooper and a bunch of question marks.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Makes two grabs

    Schwartz caught two of three targets for 20 yards and rushed once for four yards in Sunday's 21-20 preseason loss to the Eagles.

    Schwartz got open for a couple of out routes, but rookie David Bell outperformed him with three catches for 46 yards in his preseason debut. Each wideout had a drop, but they may be more an issue for Schwartz, who dropped a couple in the preseason opener. With Amari Cooper cemented as the Browns' top wideout, Schwartz figures to compete with Bell and Donovan Peoples-Jones for complementary targets during the upcoming campaign.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Bounces back after two-drop game

    Schwartz made a highlight-reel catch during Tuesday's session, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports.

    Schwartz made news during Cleveland's preseason opener against the Jaguars last Friday, when he dropping two passes from quarterback Deshaun Watson. The wideout was able to move past the disappointing showing in the opener to make an impressive catch with the first-team offense Tuesday, an over-the-shoulder grab of a Jacoby Brissett pass while sliding into the pylon for what would have been a touchdown. Schwartz has had ups and downs since being drafted in the third round last year, so he's had some practice at being resilient. He's currently penciled in as the fourth wideout behind Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones and rookie slot man David Bell.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Three targets in preseason opener

    Schwartz failed to catch any of his three targets in Friday's 24-13 preseason win over the Jaguars.

    On the bright side, Schwartz suited up for the preseason opener despite recently battling a knee injury and was targeted three times by starting quarterback Deshaun Watson. Unfortunately, they were unable to connect on any of those three passes, which included two drops. Schwartz looks like a safe bet to make Cleveland's roster, but he'll likely continue to jostle with Donovan Peoples-Jones and David Bell for playing time alongside clear No. 1 wideout Amari Cooper. Schwartz will look to make a larger impact against the Eagles in the Browns' next preseason game a week from Sunday.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Availability for Friday undecided

    Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski hasn't yet decided if Schwartz will play in Friday's preseason opener against Jacksonville, Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Both Schwartz and David Bell are in the same boat with regard to their statuses for Friday's contest. The two receivers both recently returned from injury and are increasing their reps daily, but the Browns could still elect to play it safe and hold out Schwartz and Bell until the second preseason contest.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Returns to practice

    Schwartz (knee) is active at Saturday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Schwartz had been considered day-to-day while he has been sidelined the past week. His return Saturday indicates he has moved on from his knee injury; however, Schwartz did not participate in team drills, per Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site. He currently projects to be the Browns' No. 4 pass catcher behind Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones and David Bell.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Day-to-day

    Coach Kevin Stefanski noted Friday that Schwartz is "day-to-day" with a knee strain, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Schwartz left Thursday's practice with a knee issue, but apparently it's nothing major, with Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram indicating that the wideout is in line to be available come Week 1. Once Schwartz is able to return to practice, he'll look to cement his role in a Cleveland wide receiver corps that's led by Amari Cooper and also includes Donovan Peoples-Jones and rookie David Bell, who is currently on the active/PUP list with a foot injury.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Injures knee Thursday

    Schwartz left Thursday's practice with a knee injury and will be further evaluated in the coming days, Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    While Amari Cooper is entrenched as the Browns' top wide receiver and Donovan Peoples-Jones has a solid chance to open the season as the team's No. 2 option at the position, Schwartz and rookie David Bell -- who is dealing with a foot injury -- are next up in terms of depth chart slotting. If Schwartz's injury causes him to miss extended time, it could lead to added early-season opportunities for Bell. Plus, the team could consider adding further depth at wideout.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Among top three wideouts sans Bell

    Schwartz opened training camp as one of the Browns' top three receivers after rookie David Bell (foot) was placed on the active/PUP list, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

    A healthy Bell is the favorite to open the season as the starting slot receiver, but he'll be missing reps early in camp, which opens up an opportunity for Schwartz. The Browns don't anticipate adding another wideout, which suggests that Bell's injury isn't considered serious.
