When given a chance to make plays recently, Browns second-year WRs Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie have acquitted themselves nicely. Massaquoi has seen an increase in targets since the club's bye week, getting 24 passes thrown his way in four games (14 catches) as compared to 21 targets and nine catches in six games before the bye. Robiskie, who had been a relative nonfactor before Week 12, caught all seven passes thrown his way in the win over Carolina. Robiskie and Massaquoi, the outside receivers in the Browns' scheme, don't get a plethora of opportunities compared to other wideouts, but the increase in targets lately has been noticeable. Still, this is an offensive scheme where the quarterbacks get the ball to a variety of receivers, and RB Peyton Hillis (24 targets since Week Nine), TE Benjamin Watson (team-high 66 targets) and WR Chansi Stuckey (45 overall targets) remain important components.
