Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (knee) to undergo MRI Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Browns free safety Tashaun Gipson will undergo an MRI Monday after suffering a potentially serious knee injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gipson had to be carted off the field after colliding with teammate Joe Haden in the fourth quarter Sunday. "Gipson is one of the best safeties, one of the top three in the NFL for sure," Haden said. "Losing him, you can't replace him, but in the NFL nobody is going to feel bad for you."

Gipson was seen on crutches after the game. The Browns are set to play the Bills in Week 13.

Interceptions not the story for Brian Hoyer
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For the third time in four games, Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for 300 yards Week 12 at Atlanta.

He had 322, to be exact. It was his second-best single-game total this season. But because of some miscommunication with star wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was making his season debut after serving a 10-game suspension, he also had a season-high three interceptions, including two in the fourth quarter, both on passes that sailed well beyond Gordon's reach.

That's what miscommunication will do for a quarterback.

What will Gordon do for a quarterback? Well, even with all that miscommunication, he still led the Browns with 120 receiving yards. And that was with his longest catch going for just 24 yards. He and Hoyer failed to connect on all the deep balls -- again, a product of miscommunication.

The takeaway for Hoyer owners: Just imagine what can do when he and his star wide receiver are communicating. And I don't mean via text. Imagine when they've had more than just a few days of practice, when they've had a chance to get in sync and aren't missing on all those plays they could have made in Week 12.

Hoyer may be a so-so quarterback, but he's a so-so quarterback who could be in for a big finish, making him a player to monitor even in standard 12-team leagues.

Even out of sync, Josh Gordon dominates
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer and star wide receiver Josh Gordon weren't entirely in sync in the latter's return from a 10-game suspension Week 12 at Atlanta, as evidenced by Hoyer's two interceptions late in the fourth quarter -- both on passes that sailed well beyond Gordon's reach. But even so, Gordon put up big numbers in his season debut, leading the Browns with eight catches for 120 yards.

Though the Browns initially said he'd play only 20-30 snaps, Gordon was consistently on the field, getting twice as many targets (16) as any other Browns player. And though his longest catch went for only 24 yards, he was targeted on several deep balls that, perhaps with a better rapport with Hoyer, could have resulted in big gains.

In other words, if you've stashed Gordon, the NFL's leading receiver last year, all this time, give yourself a pat on the back. He looks like he'll be a stud down the stretch and should have even bigger games than this one in store.

Billy Cundiff totals four FGs, including game-winner Week 12
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Browns kicker Billy Cundiff booted a 37-yard field goal as time expired Sunday, lifting Cleveland to a 26-24 win Week 12 at Atlanta. 

The game-winner was Cundiff's fourth made field goal. He had field goals of 33 and 37 yards in the second quarter, and a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter. Cundiff did miss a 60-yard field goal at the end of the first half.

He had two extra points Sunday and finished with a season-best 14 points. He has managed 10 or more points in three of his last five games.

The Browns are back in action Week 13 at Buffalo.

Isaiah Crowell the better Browns back again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Unlike Week 11 against Houston, Isaiah Crowell didn't lead the Browns in carries Week 12 at Atlanta, but he was once again the more effective of the two rookie running backs, picking up 88 yards on 12 carries. He also scored two touchdowns, the most impressive coming on a 26-yard run late in the third quarter in which he probably ran more horizontally than vertically, taking the ball past the left hash mark before cutting all the way back to the right sideline.

By comparison, Terrance West had 62 yards on 14 carries and was the only one of the two to catch a pass -- a 9-yarder. It wasn't a bad performance by any means, but West hasn't done anything to distinguish himself in the two games with Ben Tate out of the running.

True, Week 12 was the Browns' first game with Tate completely off the roster, so they're still feeling out their backfield. But while Crowell and West will probably continue to split carries going forward, Crowell is looking like the one to own in Fantasy. Chances are even with an even distribution of carries, they won't both contribute relevant numbers each week.
