Cleveland Browns Fantasy Spin
Browns CB Greedy Williams (hamstring) is questionable for Week 5 against the 49ers. Williams isn't expected to play after missing practice all week. The Browns will also be without Denzel Ward (hamstring). It's a great spot for Deebo Samuel at home on Monday night. T.J. Carrie and Terrance Mitchell will make another start.
San Francisco 49ers Fantasy Spin
According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, Tevin Coleman (questionable, ankle) is expected to be available for Monday night's Week 5 game against the Browns. Coleman will be making his return from a two-game absence, though it's unclear how much responsibility he'll be given coming off a high-ankle sprain. Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert should remain involved while Jeff Wilson could occupy a LeGarrette Blount-esque role as the team's goal-line finisher. With so much uncertainty, it's best to avoid Niners running backs until we have a clearer picture of the team's backfield pecking order.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 4-0 in the Browns’ last four games following a straight up win of more than 14 points.
The under is 4-1 in the 49ers’ last five games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams and is 5-2 in the Niners’ last seven home games. The under has also cashed in five of the Browns’ last seven games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game and is 401 in their last five games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game. Cleveland’s defense has played very well to this point and I don’t think the Browns have suddenly discovered their offense after one game. This total looks too high.
