| Kenny Britt doubtful for Week 5|
Knee, groin injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 6, 11:30 am
|#Browns WR Kenny Britt (knee/groin) and LB Jamie Collins (concussion) are doubtful for Sunday (Nate Ulrich on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Browns "No.1 receiver" has looked disinterested most of the season and would've been benched last week if the Browns had enough bodies at the position. Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins will likely start Week 5 but neither are recommended options for fantasy owners.
|Rashard Higgins listed as Browns starter|
WR was on practice squad last week

|Mary Kay Cabot (@MarkKayCabot) posted a shot of the Browns depth chart, and Rashard Higgins was listed as a starting WR. (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Higgins gets a starting role moving forward with Corey Coleman (broken hand) headed to IR/DFR. He snagged 7-95-0 on 11 targets last week and some NFL analysts have been high on Higgins since he was drafted in the fifth round last season. He's worth snagging as a WR3/4 or flex play and has breakout WR2 upside since the Browns will be playing from behind a lot this season.
|Corey Coleman to undergo hand surgery|
Suffered fractured right hand in Week 2
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 18, 5:05 pm
|Corey Coleman's right hand is in fact broken again and will need surgery this time, a source told cleveland.com. Coleman visited a hand specialist (Monday), and the fracture was confirmed.
It's the same hand that Coleman broke last season in practice after week two and caused him to miss six games. The original injury healed without surgery, and Coleman was back on the field at midseason. This one will require surgery. (The Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: Coleman has been snake-bitten with injuries since entering the league in 2016, as suffering a fracture in the same hand at roughly the same time in consecutive seasons will attest. With Kenny Britt doing next to nothing so far, it might be up to Week 2 breakout receiver Rashard Higgins to live up to his "Hollywood" nickname. Higgins may be the hottest add in leagues this week.
| Another broken hand for Corey Coleman|
Not known if surgery will be required
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 18, 10:30 am
|Corey Coleman's right hand is in fact broken again, a source told cleveland.com. Coleman visited a hand specialist today, and the fracture was confirmed. It's the same hand that Coleman broke last season in practice after week two and caused him to miss six games, but it's not yet known if it's the same bone or if he'll need surgery. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: In Coleman's absence, Rashard Higgins saw 11 targets while Kenny Britt and Sammie Coates seemed disinterested at times. The Browns receiving corps is quickly turning into a dumpster fire and a situation for fantasy owners to avoid.
