Josh Cribbs injury update: Browns WR to see fantasy boost in ailing receiving corps

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Josh Cribbs is expected to play when the Browns take on the Giants on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Josh Cribbs is expected to play Sunday when the Cleveland Browns play the New York Giants despite suffering a concussion in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens. Cribbs was unable to practice Monday, but he returned Wedesday and practiced fully Thursday and Friday.

Fantasy Impact: With Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin both on the injury report as doubtful with hamstring injuries, Cribbs will be the de facto No. 2 receiver behind Greg Little against the Giants. That means more targets on top of his already high fantasy value on special teams if your league takes into account return yardage. Still, he has yet to catch more than two passes in any game this season, making him a very risky start in standard leagues despite the fantasy boost.
