Chris Ogbonnaya: Probable, will be available for fantasy owners

Cleveland Browns full back/running back Chris Ogbonnaya practiced on Thursday and Friday and is listed as probable in Week 6. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns full back/running back Chris Ogbonnaya (concussion) practiced on Thursday and Friday and is probable against the Lions in Week 6. Ogbonnaya suffered the concussion two weeks ago.

Fantasy Impact: Having cleared all five stages of the NFL concussion protocol, Ogbonnaya will suit up in Week 6. As Willis McGahee's lead blocker, Ogbonnaya offers virtually no fantasy upside. He is solid in pass protection and may sneak out for a catch or two, but the Browns get much more value out of his versatility than fantasy owners do. Even fantasy owners in deeper leagues can find a better plug-and-play option on the waiver wire.

Wide receiver Josh Gordon and tight end Jordan Cameron remain Cleveland's strongest fantasy options as they offer WR2 and TE1 upside respectively. Thirty-one-year-old starting running back Willis McGahee saw 26 carries for 72 yards and a touchdown in Week 5. While he is past his prime, the volume of carries as the Browns' feature back makes him a decent FLEX play.
