Cleveland Browns Fantasy News & Notes

Browns DE Emmanuel Ogbah (ankle) was left off the final injury report for Week 4. Ogbah has missed the last two games, but he is ready to return after getting in a full practice on Friday. Ogbah will boost a defense which was already playing well.

Oakland Raiders Fantasy News & Notes

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 4 against the Browns. Lynch has been following this pattern most of the season, practicing on a limited basis throughout the week before being removed from the injury report on Friday. Beast Mode will be safe to fire up as an RB2 Sunday against Cleveland.

Prediction

The Raiders did a lot of things right last week in Miami and still wound up losing by double-digits. They dominated time of possession, moved the ball methodically, and played good defense until the fourth quarter. Do you know who they remind me of? The Browns of last year. Cleveland was in most of its games a year ago but consistently fell apart in the fourth quarter because of poor coaching and execution. And weekly they burned sharper bettors that kept looking at their stats and seeing the Browns offered value as an underdogs. I believe the Raiders will be that team this year and I’ll gladly take the Browns with the points today.
