Cleveland Browns DFS Spin
Browns did lost list WR Jarvis Landry (knee) with an injury designation for Week 9 against the Bengals. Landry suffered an MCL sprain in Week 2, but now appears to be at full health, or at least close to it. It couldn't come at a better time for the Browns who are finalizing Odell Beckham's departure from the team. Landry has been the clear top target for the Browns this season, and will be the engine of the Browns' passing attack in Week 9. The Browns are likely planning to be as run heavy as possible, with Baker Mayfield still dealing with a fracture in his non-throwing shoulder. The Bengals may be able to push the Browns however, with a passing offense that should be able to put up points against Cleveland. Landry has upside for a strong game if this game hits the over.

Ja'Marr Chase caught 3-of-9 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 8 loss to the Jets. Chase wasn't as dominant as he's been in recent weeks, but still led the Bengals in targets. He'll look to recapture his efficiency against in Week 9. As Burrow's clear top target he remains a low-end WR1 in what could be a low scoring affair against the Browns.
