Greg Little fantasy status in question after mystery absence Thursday

Matt Sullivan

Greg Little was held of Cleveland Browns practice Thursday for an unspecified reason, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Greg Little was held out of Cleveland Browns practice Thursday for an unspecified reason, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Little was able to practice fully Wednesday, and there are no known injury concerns. He has been full participant in practice throughout the year.

Greg Little won the Browns' top spot on the depth chart before the regular season began, but has been disappointing since. Through six games he has 14 receptions for 169 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: There is no reason to assume Gordon will be missing any playing time this weekend until more details come out. His returns have been diminishing as a fantasy prospect throughout the season, however. Drops are a big concern, and the rise of Josh Gordon has reduced Gordon's role within the offense.

With Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin potentially making their returns from hamstring injuries this weekend, a juicy matchup against the Indianapolis Colts looks much less enticing for Little owners. Until he proves himself again on the field, Little is probably best left on the bench in standard formats.
