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

We can't think of a reason to bench Browns RB Peyton Hillis under any circumstance save for injury right now … and he's healthy. Hillis (194 total yards, three rushing TDs in Week 12) is an automatic start until proven otherwise. He has scored a touchdown in all but one game this season.

Browns QB Jake Delhomme was accurate in his return to the lineup in Week 12, completing 24-of-35 passes for 245 yards vs. Carolina, his former team. That said, he also threw a pair of picks, and he did not throw a touchdown pass. What's more, though he's likely to start at Miami in Week 13, his stint in the starting lineup could be over once Colt McCoy returns from a high ankle sprain. Delhomme is a short-term fantasy starting option at best, and most likely only in bigger leagues.

Delhomme looked freqeuently for WRs Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie in Week 12, targeting both players seven times. Robiskie caught all seven passes for 50 yards and no scores, with Massaquoi catching 4-52-0. Massaquoi remains the more valuable wideout in all formats, but Robiskie's surprising increase in opportunities — he had just nine catches prior to Week 12 — bears watching

Browns TE Benjamin Watson was targeted five times in Week 12, catching four passes for 40 yards. He remains a viable starting option in bigger leagues.
