Chris Ogbonnaya Fantasy Recap: Browns RB Breaks Through Against Jaguars

The Cleveland Browns held on Sunday to win a 14-10 nail-biter over the Jacksonville Jaguars and running back Chris Ogbonnaya was a key part of the victory with his second straight strong performance. The Browns defense had to make a final second stop to secure the win, but Ogbonnaya put them in that position with a 115-yard performance and one touchdown. Ogbonnaya also added in 19 receiving yards.

The Browns have struggled to develop their rushing attack ever since Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty went down. However, they might finally have some kind of answer as Ogbonnaya has averaged at least 4.7 yards per carry each of the last two games. He rushed for 90 yards on 19 carries against the St. Louis Rams and built on that this week.

Normal second string running back Montario Hardesty has been dealing with a calf muscle injury and might be able to return to action in week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Whenever he does return, he likely will re-take the number one running back role, but it is worth tracking for now given Ogbonnaya's two-game success.
