The Cleveland Browns have been adding to the offensive side over the last few years. This year’s signing was Austin Hooper who is going to slide right into the starting tight end role pushing David Njoku to a secondary tight end. The receiving core remains the same with Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry. Everything is set up for Baker Mayfield to take that step forwards. There isn’t much behind him outside of Case Keenum if they did want to make a change. One of the better backfield duos right now is in Cleveland. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt both give the Browns a nice one-two punch.

Cleveland Browns Depth Chart FAQ

Cleveland has made a lot of moves to try and get them to the playoffs over the last two offseasons. The Browns didn't stop again as they signed Austin Hooper and drafted Jedrick Willis. Cleveland had a strong draft, also bringing in Jacob Phillips and Grant Delpit. If the Browns can stay healthy, the defense should perform well this season. The weapons are there for Baker Mayfield, with Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr, and a good backfield with Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb. The Browns are in a tough division with Pittsburgh and Baltimore, and any slip-ups they will fall behind quickly.

Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are the top two running backs on the team. Chubb is the starter, while Hunt was used as a change of pace and receiving back. They rank as one of the top one-two punches in the NFL.

Is Austin Hooper Starting In Cleveland?

Austin Hooper has signed as a free agent this offseason after playing for the Atlanta Falcons. Hooper will jump right into the starting tight end role, which pushes David Njoku to be just a secondary option.

Who Is The Browns Third Wide Receiver?

Rashard Higgins is the Browns third wide receiver, and he sits behind Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry. Higgins is a young wideout who has excelled with his speed. The Browns are loaded with weapons, so Higgins doesn't have much fantasy appeal.
