Daily Dawg Tags: Cleveland Browns could be fantasy football gold
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at how potent this roster can be in fantasy football
Fantasy football is taking over the sport. Fans from all walks of life love being able to take part in the game by selecting the players they think can put up the biggest numbers and for years, the Cleveland Browns weren’t exactly fantasy gold.
That’s changes now since this team suddenly has a lot of talent. And they even have one player who is in the discussion to be one of the best at his position — Nick Chubb.
Entering his fourth season, Chubb is considered a lock for RB1 in fantasy but today’s featured article in the Daily Dawg Tags looks at other players on this team that make Cleveland fantasy gold.

NFL Team Preview: Browns have talent to be fantasy football force — Dalton Del Don, Matt Harmon and Andy Behrens, Yahoo Sports
"“More likely to be a top-five player at the position. Nick Chubbchecks the three major boxes you want out of a possible elite RB1. He is verifiably great at the game.”"
From there, the crew at Yahoo discuss Kareem Hunt who had 11 touchdowns last season as well as Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckhamj, Jr., and Austin Hooper. Not all will be studs like Chubb, but the Browns have some viable players in the fantasy world for sure.
Waiting Game Is the Only Play for Browns with Baker Mayfield — Gary Davenport, Bleacher Report
"“The Browns would be wise not to let enthusiasm and optimism get the best of them. The smart play with Mayfield is to be patient—let him show that his career will be less 2019 and more 2020.”"
If Cleveland waits to pay Baker Mayfield, they could end up on the hook for a lot more money than they would wind up paying if they locked him up now. However, no team has ever regretted having a quarterback perform so well that they have to back up the Brinks truck. That’s why the patient game makes sense here — and it really goes both ways.
