Cleveland Browns and fantasy football players to avoid (AFC North and Goal Podcast)

Cleveland Browns

ESPN graded every team’s offseason and gave the Cleveland Browns the only elite grade for their offseason. Brown’s general manager John Dorsey orchestrated a blockbuster trade to obtain All-World wide receiver, Odell Beckham. He also was willing to take a public relation hit in signing former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt to pair up with last season’s rookie breakout Nick Chubb in the Browns backfield. Hunt should make a tremendous impact after he serves his eight-game suspension. These efforts were designed to build major offensive talent around their franchise quarterback Baker Mayfield. Providing Mayfield and new head coach Freddie Kitchens with more weapons to escalate his growth curve and raise the offense among the best in the league. The Browns didn’t forget about the defensive side of the ball. They added Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon to their defensive line to help Pro Bowler Myles Garrett raise his game to an even higher level than his 13.5 sacks last season. They also added cornerback Greedy Willaims by stealing him in the middle of the second round. With the hype around this Browns team, are they getting too confident? The Cleveland Browns have not been in the playoffs since 2007, will the 2019 Browns get there?

Fantasy Players to Avoid

Most fantasy sites advise you to select and why. The AFC North guys take a look at one player from each AFC North team and explain why you should try to avoid them in your 2019 Fantasy drafts. Can any Baltimore wide receiver outside of Hollywood Brown be trusted this season? Hollywood should be the mainstay with the Ravens during the season barring any injury. Should you avoid certain Cleveland Browns players in fantasy? It will be interesting to dive into during the season considering the amount of talent that they have on the football field.
