|Oh look, another cast-off pass catcher that has latched onto to a doomed passing game. Housler comes to Cleveland as a free agent after a barely there 9-catch 2014 season in Arizona. The Browns need a playmaker to replace (a reoccurring theme with the Cleveland passing offense) the departed Jordan Cameron . Housler might seem like a poor bet to do so, but I see some decent potential with TE2 upside possibilities from Housler. Just two years removed from a 45-catch season, injuries and poor scheme fit have held Housler back from his potential. In Cleveland, the 6’5’’ beast with 4.5 speed finds himself with a clear line to opportunities to catch the football. He should be featured in the redzone and is an easy bet to surpass his career total of 1 touchdown. In fact, look for Housler to become an integral part of the short passing attack, and surpass his career highs across the board. Josh McCown has experience using large receivers to his advantage, and Housler fits the bill. Look for Cleveland to get Housler in space against slower linebackers and smaller safeties with crossing and curl routes. Housler is going to be nearly invisible in your fantasy league, and could easily be added at the very end of your draft as your TE2 with some upside. Low risk, decent reward – something to look out for, especially at the tight end position.
| TE Martellus Bennett lands on injured reserve|

|Bears have placed TE Martellus Bennett on season-ending injured reserve with a rib injury & signed TE Rob Housler. (Chicago Bears on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Bennett has been bothered by a rib injury since Week 11 and hasn't had more than 3 receptions since Week 9. Zach Miller moves back into fantasy relevancy with Robert Housler on the roster for insurance.
