Jordan Cameron active for Browns, fantasy owners in Week 17

Jared Wickerham

After recently being cleared to play, Cameron makes the start again at tight end for Cleveland. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jordan Cameron missed Week 16 due to a concussion. The Cleveland Browns No. 1 tight end appeared to be in jeopardy of missing the regular season finale as well, but after recently being cleared to play, he is active for Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cameron has struggled to make an impact later in the season with Jason Campbell under center, but he went off in Week 14 for 121 yards and a touchdown. His presence also helps take some of the pressure off Josh Gordon.

Fantasy impact: The Browns are not wasting any time getting Cameron back on the field, despite the fact that they have nothing to play for. He's a TE1 with the limited number of options at the position. The Steelers have been hit-or-miss against tight ends in 2013, ranking No. 14 in points allowed.

Gordon owners should be pleased as well. He was on a five-game scoring streak until Cameron was inactive.
