Here's our weekly look at the Browns from a fantasy-football perspective.
With sleet and/or snow in the forecast, Browns RB Peyton Hillis could be the focal point of the offense at Buffalo Sunday. Hillis' performance is reason alone to start him, but he also gets a fantasy owner's dream matchup: a Buffalo defense surrendering 170.9 yards per game on the ground. Hillis has rushed for 962 yards and 11 scores this season.
Hillis is also a vital part of the passing game (67 targets, 53 catches, 436 yards, two TDs) and could be a primary target if conditions are dicey.
QB Jake Delhomme has averaged 231 yards in his two starts in place of the injured Colt McCoy and gets another start at Buffalo. However, check the weather before getting him into the lineup. Indeed, follow that advice if you're considering starting any other Brown other than Hillis, who's a surefire starter.
TE Benjamin Watson (10-100-1 vs. Miami last Sunday) has been targeted a team-best 77 times. He could merit starting consideration in some leagues. WR Mohamed Massaquoi continues to get more passes thrown his way. He has been targeted 23 times in the past three games, catching 12-184-0.
