Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden has reportedly returned to practice after being faced with a possible suspension. We discuss the fantasy implications at SB Nation.

Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden was reportedly on the practice field this week, surprising some. The Browns defensive back was expected to be suspended the first four games, but recent reports indicate that might not be the case. Haden is expected to play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.

Analysis: Haden is easily one of the better players for Cleveland, and considering their first match-up of the 2012 regular season, he will be needed. The Browns defense has never been a great fantasy option, and even with Joe Haden returning, they still hold little to no value. And if you have either DeSean Jackson or Jeremy Maclin, do not hesitate to keep them in your starting lineup.
