Fantasy Player Projections

 
Cleveland Browns
LP Field | Sunday, December 07 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Titans 34, Browns 10
Tennessee Titans
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBKen Dorsey
140 pass yards, 2 INT
With Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson both out for the rest of the season, Dorsey will take over the reins at QB. The former University of Miami standout hasn't completed a pass since 2005 and has competed in only two NFL games in the last three seasons. He's not a worthy pickup for the stretch run as the Browns have run out of options to win this year.
RBJamal Lewis
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 75 rush yards, 1 rush TD
With the passing game now in turmoil, look for the Browns to once again give RB Jamal Lewis 20-plus carries against a Titans' run defense that ranks 12th in the NFL. The lack of a proven QB is going to really hurt Lewis's value down the stretch, but he's their only real option right now so it's worth it to keep him in your starting lineup for Week 14.
RBJerome Harrison
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 20 rush yards
The Browns are in no hurry to see if Harrison can carry the load as he was limited to just two carries last week against Indianapolis compared to Lewis' 24 carries. Forget about him.
WRBraylon Edwards
4 rec, 50 yards
The lack of a proven downfield passer is going to hurt Edwards as Dorsey won't be able to throw the deep pass. It's been a horrible season already for Edwards as he was limited to just two catches for 36 yards by the Colts last week even before Anderson left the game. It's reasonable to start Edwards this week, but another bad week is in store.
WRDonte' Stallworth
1 rec, 10 yards
Stallworth had one catch for four yards last week and now has two catches in his last three games. He's a major free agent bust for the Browns and all fantasy owners. Cut him now if you can.
WRSyndric Steptoe
1 rec, 10 yards
Steptoe had one catch for three yards last week and now has one catch in each of his last four games. It's easy to do his projection this week, but please make sure he's not on your roster going forward.
TESteve Heiden
5 rec, 40 yards
With Kellen Winslow Jr. out this week with a high ankle sprain, Heiden will start at TE, with Martin Rucker also getting a look in passing situations. Heiden had some good games when Winslow was out earlier this year and he will be a safe target for Dorsey this week. He's not a bad play if you're weak at TE.
KPhil Dawson
1 PAT, 1 FG
The injuries to the offense will greatly affect Dawson, who has been limited to just six points in each of the last two games. Look elsewhere for kicking help if you can for the playoff stretch.
Defense
1 sack
The Browns' defense was solid last week as it forced three turnovers against the Colts, but the offense was nowhere to be found as the Browns lost 10-6. Don't expect any production from this defense this week against a solid Titans' offense.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBKerry Collins
160 pass yards, 1 pass TD
With the running game rolling easily at Detroit last week, Collins just had to manage the game and his fantasy results were miniscule at best. He completed just 11-of-18 passes for 127 yards and no TDs after throwing six TD passes in the three previous games. Expect little production this week vs. Cleveland as the Titans will roll once again on the ground.
RBChris Johnson
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 110 rush yards, 2 rush TD
Johnson should top the 1,000-yard mark this week, as he is just 42 yards short after topping 100 yards last week for the third time this year. Johnson torched the Lions on Thanksgiving Day for 125 yards and two TDs on only 16 carries and will do the same this week to a Browns' run defense that ranks 26th in the NFL vs. the run. Start CJ again and get ready for some big results.
RBLenDale White
70 rush yards, 1 rush TD
White joined Chris Johnson with a 100-yard rushing game last week at Detroit, his second 100-plus yard game of the season. With a big lead, White was given the ball 23 times for 106 yards and two TDs, one week after he touched the ball just once against the Jets. Look for another big game from White as the Browns allow over 141 yards per game on the ground.
WRBrandon Jones
3 rec, 30 yards
Jones was held to just one catch for six yards last week at Detroit as the Titans built a big lead and didn't need to pass the ball. Jones now has just seven catches for 69 yards in the last three games and isn't a recommended fantasy play this week against Cleveland.
WRJustin Gage
3 rec, 40 yards
Gage was held to just two catches for 40 yards last week at Detroit as the Titans jumped out to an early lead and the same scenario will happen this week with Cleveland in town. Don't start any Tennessee WR this week.
WRJustin McCareins
2 rec, 30 yards
McCareins had two catches for 43 yards last week at Detroit as the Titans threw only 18 times. Look for the same scenario this week against Cleveland as the Titans will ground out a win, leaving the wideouts invaluable in Week 14.
TEBo Scaife
3 rec, 30 yards, 1 TD
Scaife was held to one catch for eight yards last week at Detroit and he now has only six catches for 76 yards in the last three games. The Titans won't throw the ball much this week, but Scaife should be good for one red zone score.
KRob Bironas
4 PATs, 2 FGs
Bironas had a season-high 17 points last week at Detroit as he converted all four FG attempts and five PATs. He now has 104 points this season and should reach double digits again with an easy matchup vs. Cleveland.
Defense
3 sacks, 2 INT, 1 Fumble
The Titans' defense has been tenacious all year long as it has 17 interceptions and 34 sacks, while allowing just eight passing TDs. Look for a BIG week this week against unproven Dorsey.
