Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin have been ruled inactive for Sunday's game between the Browns and the Bengals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin have been ruled inactive by the Cleveland Browns for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Massaquoi was held out of practice throughout the week while dealing with a hamstring injury, and was ruled out Friday. Benjamin also has a hamstring injury, and was a limited participant in practice Friday before being relegated to the sideline.

Greg Little is still the team's No. 1 wide receiver. For Sunday, Josh Gordon and Josh Cribbs are expected to man the No. 2 and No. 3 slots. Gordon caught two passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns last week against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact: With Jordan Norwood on injured reserve, the Browns wide receiver corps is currently starved for bodies. Gordon proved to be a decent deep threat last week, but whether he has the skillset to be more than a boom-or-bust option remains to be seen. Cribbs, meanwhile, is expected to work out of the slot, limiting his upside.

Considering the fact that Massaquoi and Benjamin were dubious options themselves in standard fantasy leagues, you're probably better staying clear of of Gordon and Cribbs. Little remains the only viable option, though he is coming off a zero-reception performance last week.
