Here's our weekly look at the Browns from a fantasy-football perspective:

Here's to hoping you picked up Browns RB Peyton Hillis off waivers. Hillis has rushed for 49-246-2 in his two games and has supplanted Jerome Harrison as the starter. Hillis (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday and was not slated to practice Friday, so keep an eye on his status, though head coach Eric Mangini reportedly indicated that Hillis should play Sunday. If he plays, he's a solid starting option — the Falcons are allowing 4.6 yards per carry. Harrison's value is highest to those heavily depending on Hillis as a backup option. 

QB Jake Delhomme (ankle) was limited in practice this week and his playing status likely will be determined on Saturday, according to Mangini. If he plays, he probably would draw strongest starting consideration in two-QB formats. The same goes for Seneca Wallace, who has gotten practice snaps this week so he's ready if Delhomme has to sit for a fourth consecutive week. 

Browns wideouts have scored just two TDs in four games, and Mohamed Massaquoi, who was the most highly regarded Cleveland receiver among fantasy owners entering the season after a solid rookie year, has caught just two passes for 14 yards in the past three contests. 

TE Benjamin Watson leads the Browns in receptions and receiving yards (18-185) and has one of Cleveland's four receiving TDs.
