Cleveland Browns DFS Spin

Browns activated Baker Mayfield from the reserve/COVID list. Cleveland will get back CB A.J. Green, backup QB Case Keenum, WR Jarvis Landry, DE Ifeadi Odenigbo, and Mayfield ahead of Saturday's matchup against the Packers. Mayfield is a thin option for two-game DFS slates and should be avoided altogether in re-draft leagues given his poor recent play.

Green Bay Packers DFS Spin

Aaron Jones (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday. Jones was estimated to be a limited participant on Tuesday as well. This isn't a surprise as Jones is just a few weeks removed from a knee injury that forced him to miss a game. He will open the week as a limited participant for the remainder of the regular season. Last week, Jones played a majority of the Packers' snaps for the first time since returning from the knee injury. The increase in workload bodes well for his odds of returning high-end RB2 numbers versus the Browns this week.
