Mohamed Massaquoi, Jordan Norwood miss Friday practice as fantasy value sinks again

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Mohamed Massaquoi and Jordan Norwood did not practice Friday as Cleveland's WR depth chart runs thin. We break down the fantasy implications.

Update: Mohamed Massaquoi and Jordan Norwood have been ruled out for Sunday's game. Travis Benjamin was marked doubtful on the Browns' injury report Friday.

Cleveland Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) was held out of practice for the third straight day, all but guaranteeing he will miss Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Massaquoi missed the last two games with a lingering hamstring issue, and there is no definite timetable for his return.

Also missing practice is WR Jordan Norwood (foot), who sprained his foot in Wednesday's practice and was on crutches on Thursday. Norwood had a career game against the New York Giants with nine catches for 81 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Travis Benjamin returned to practice Friday, but his game status isn't a sure thing yet. So the Browns are down to Greg Little, Josh Gordon and Josh Cribbs as their healthiest receivers. Not an ideal scenario for Brandon Weeden, even against Cincinnati's woeful pass defense

Short on reinforcements, the Browns signed rookie Josh Cooper off the practice squad this morning. He played with Weeden back at Oklahoma St., but is not expected to make a significant impact. The Browns' WRs are in dire straits heading into the game. Trent Richardson is the only Browns offensive player I can recommend starting in fantasy leagues.
