Fournette (ankle) downgraded to DNP on Friday

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/12132/leonard-fournette

Leonard Fournette (ankle) is not practicing Friday.
Fournette was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, so this is a downgrade for him. It's possible the team is just being easy on their offensive centerpiece, but this is now something to watch this weekend. Fournette has admitted he's not looking forward to playing in the cold weather at Cleveland this weekend, but we don't see it as a reason to downgrade him from RB1/2 status. The Browns' elite run defense is more of a blockade to his fantasy success. Nov 17 - 11:14 AM

The Browns run defense has been pretty good.  Opposing running backs have scored the 10th fewest points against their defense.  The 4 running backs that have scored the most against them are Jerrick McKinnon (26.10 points), Buck Allen (21.10 points), Giovani Bernard (16.10 points), and Theo Riddick (13.70).  All 4 are running backs that get a lot of receiving points.  All 4 had more than 10 fantasy points against the Browns from receiving stats.  Allen, Bernard, and Riddick each had a receiving touchdown.  This probably doesn't bode well for either Fournette or Ivory.

Glover Quinn said last week the Browns field a better collective group of athletes than 24 of 32 NFL teams, and that was after the game. Now we just need them to get all their s*it together collectively and maybe think about a .500 team soon...like in 2 years

They need weapons first, if they have no one to catch the ball they would need a QB that can make everyone better. If they get some weapons around a QB they just need a game manager. See Tom Brady pre-Gronk era, and Alex Smith pre-2017

I think I'm going to move Fournette to the bench.  Can't take the risk of him not playing at all.  Did he practice today?

Hmmm, I think Yeldon might be the play here then.

I think Corey Coleman is a good start to them having some weapons

If he can stay healthy, missed six games last year another 6 this year. He and Gordon if he can stay out of trouble would be some serious WR talent, and the rookie TE Njoku has shown flashes of talent.

I'm leaning that direction as well. (he's whining about the cold weather, too.)

I’m glad I traded Fournette. If I remember correctly his heart and desire to play was in question at LSU as well and people kind of wrote that off saying when he’s paid it will be different. Now he’s missing curfew, missing team photos, benched at the end of last game, a report came out about him not wanting to play in the Cleveland cold, and then he’s injured...the guy seems to have lost some will to play

I'm about 15 minutes east of the Stadium

oh yeah, and the wind is kicking.

I dropped Lambo as my K this morning
