Browns' David Njoku: Leads team in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Njoku caught two passes (five targets) for a team-high 58 yards during Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Titans.

DeShone Kizer was unable to hook up with Njoku before being benched, but luckily for the rookie tight end, Cody Kessler made a habit of looking his way. The two connected for gains of 27 and 31 yards, with the latter setting up a game-tying field goal in the third quarter. Njoku has hauled in at least two passes in every game this season, and he has 10 targets over the past two weeks after seeing a total of 15 during games one through five.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Paces team in receptions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson rushed seven times for 26 yards and corralled a team-high six catches (seven targets) for 45 yards during Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to Tennessee.

Johnson's seven carries were a season high and was once again more productive than teammate Isaiah Crowell. Not only did he find more holes to run through, he was also more effective in the passing attack, leading the team with six receptions. Johnson now has 32 catches for 314 yards on the season, and as the Browns attempt to find new ways to secure their first victory, they may reward Johnson with more opportunities in order to give the offense a much-needed boost.

Browns' Isaiah Crowell: Nowhere to run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowell carried the ball 17 times for 35 yards and caught four of six targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Titans.

The Titans' defensive front absolutely shut down Cleveland's running game Sunday, as they allowed Crowell to gain a measly two yards per carry. Through seven games in 2017, Crowell has yet to rush for more than 60 yards and still doesn't have a touchdown to his name, though it was nice seeing him get a little more involved in the passing attack. The 24-year-old is still Cleveland's bell-cow back, but the production just hasn't been there, making him a low-end No. 2 running back at best. He'll try to revive his season in Week 8 against the Vikings.

Browns' Joe Thomas: May be out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (triceps) will undergo a MRI on Monday to see if he can return this season, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

It is feared that Thomas may have torn his triceps, but no further information will be available until after his MRI. If Thomas is out for the season, an inexperienced Zach Banner will have to step into the left tackle position.

Browns' Cody Kessler: Throws interception in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kessler completed 10 of 19 passes for 121 yards with an interception during Sunday's 12-9 loss to the Titans.

Kessler -- who was active for the first time in 2017 -- was called on to replace DeShone Kizer in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup. Kessler is Cleveland's third quarterback to throw a pass this season, as the struggling Kizer has already been benched twice. The second-year signal caller out of USC was able to move the offense more efficiently than Kizer, connecting with tight end David Njoku on two long completions, though he was unable to lead his offense to a touchdown and sailed a throw to the rookie tight end that was intercepted late in the game. It still remains to be seen whom the Browns' quarterback will be versus the Vikings in Week 8, but knowing coach Hue Jackson's history with the position, don't be surprised if Kessler is under center going forward.
