Cleveland Browns DFS Spin
Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Dorian Thompson-Robinson will start in Week 12 against the Broncos. The Browns signed veteran Joe Flacco just hours after Thompson-Robinson led them to a 13-10 win over the Steelers. In the game, DTR threw for 165 scoreless yards and one interception while adding another 20 yards on the ground. His 3.9 YPA on the afternoon is about what we’d expect from a fifth-round pick who will face a much improved Broncos defense in Week 12.
With Flacco now on the practice squad, DTR’s days as a starter are likely numbered. The Browns have an elite defense and pass-catchers, whose upside will be limited as long as DTR remains the starter.
Denver Broncos DFS Spin
Broncos S Kareem Jackson has been suspended four games for violating the league’s unnecessary roughness rules. The play in question occurred with 13:38 remaining in the fourth quarter on a hit on Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs, during which the Denver safety lowered his helmet to initiate forcible contact with the opposing quarterback. He was previously suspended four games but had the suspension reduced to two games, but heads immediately back to the suspended list after his first game back on the field. Expect another appeal as occurred on his first suspension.

Browns vs. Broncos Prediction:
Take Cleveland. Let’s examine Denver’s last four wins, shall we? The Vikings outgained the Broncos 385-295, but turned the ball over three times to Denver’s zero. The Bills outgained the Broncos 369-300 but turned the ball over four times to Denver’s one. The Chiefs outgained the Broncos 274-240, but turned the ball over a whopping five times to Denver’s one. The only team to not outgain the Broncos in Denver’s current four-game winning streak was the Packers, who fell just eight yards shy in that category, but also lost the turnover battle 1:0.
The Broncos have won recently because they haven’t beaten themselves. If the Browns can merely protect the ball offensively, I don’t see how the conservative Denver offense moves the ball on this stout Cleveland defense.
Browns vs. Broncos NFL Prediction: CLEVELAND BROWNS +1.5
