Callaway managed to bring in two passes on 10 targets for nine yards during Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers.
The rookie wideout has struggled with drops during his short time in the NFL, and Sunday's game was no different, highlighted by the fact he caught just 20 percent of his targets. Callaway continues to garner strong target numbers from Baker Mayfield, but until he consistently able to haul them in, his fantasy value in the majority of formats is low.
Callaway corralled three of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 12-9 overtime win against the Ravens.
Though Callaway played 24 more offensive snaps than fellow wideout Rashard Higgins (knee), it was Higgins who had the better performance, racking up more yards and catching a touchdown. The rookie's five targets were his lowest total since Week 3, and it still doesn't seem like Callaway and Baker Mayfield are on the same page. If this trend continues, Higgins could move up on the depth chart and supplant Callaway as Cleveland's No. 2 receiver when he returns from his MCL sprain.
Callaway (knee) practiced fully Friday and will play Sunday against the Ravens, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The same applies to Jarvis Landry (knee), meaning that the Browns will have both of their top two wideouts available this weekend. Per the report, coach Hue Jackson would like to see Callaway start faster this week, noting that the Browns will make every effort to get the rookie pass catcher on track out of the gate. Over his last two games, Callaway has logged 19 targets, but that volume yielded a modest total of seven catches for 74 yards.

Callaway's Week 5 status was left in question when he sat out Wednesday's practice, but head coach Hue Jackson said later that day that he expected the rookie to play Sunday versus the Ravens. Jackson's comments were seemingly validated by the fact that Callaway was able to practice both Thursday and Friday. The Browns will provide an official update on Callaway when they release their final injury report of the week later Friday,
Callaway (knee) logged a limited practice session Thursday.
That's an upgrade from his Wednesday practice absence, which represents the same pattern followed by fellow receiver Jarvis Landry. We'll circle back on Callaway's status Friday, but he's headed in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Ravens approaches.
