2018’s Best Fantasy Football Player: Nick Chubb, Running Back
2018’s Biggest Fantasy Football Disappointment: Jarvis Landry, Wide Receiver
2019 Fantasy Football Draft Wishlist: Wait this can’t be right
Wow. Things couldn’t be going better for the Cleveland Browns heading into the 2019 NFL Draft. They traded for Odell Beckham, Jr. Kareem Hunt physically assaulted his way out of Kansas City and onto the Browns roster. They have a strong, young nucleus of rookie contracts in Baker Mayfield, David Njoku, and Nick Chubb on offense. They cast off the yoke of Hue Jackson last season. Things couldn’t be going better for Cleveland, which is exactly why this season will see them collapse in spectacular fashion. It’s the order of the universe, don’t get mad at me. For now, at least, they don’t have much they need going into 2019.
The closest the Browns come to needing a piece of offensive weaponry for fantasy football production in 2019 is a new right guard. They moved Kevin Zeitler for Olivier Vernon early in the offseason, but other than needing a right guard, the Browns have mostly saved themselves from the stink of a desperation draft. It’s all luxury picks here, and it would be along the line and defense where these picks would come. The running back room is dense, with Chubb, Hunt, and Duke Johnson Jr. The wide receiver room is even better, with ODB, Landry, and Antonio Calloway leading the way.
The biggest wish for the 2019 Cleveland Browns is Jarvis Landry returning to form. He struggled under Freddie Kitchens last season, averaging just four catches a game for 56 yards over the second half of the season after his 5/66 per game first-half (that was in line with his six catch, 64 yard per game career in Miami).
God Bless the Cleveland Browns, they’ve earned it (and by “it” I mean a hilarious Icarus situation for deigning to try to come close to approximating a team that would go over .500).
