Here are some of the Browns' fantasy football options this week:
RB Peyton Hillis (hamstring) did not practice Thursday and reports have him not playing. Watch for weekend updates.
RB Montario Hardesty is going to have a tough day if he's the featured back, as the 49ers are allowing only 112 yards (58 rushing yards) and 0.3 TDs per game to RBs over their last three contests. Hardesty is a No. 3 fantasy back.
Look for Joshua Cribbs to start opposite Greg Little if Mohamed Massaquoi (concussion) doesn't play, as expected. Cribbs is a bye-week or injury fill-in.
There's a good chance TE Benjamin Watson (concussion) doesn't play, as he has yet to practice and now has had two concussions in less than a year.
TE Evan Moore will see an increase in playing time and targets with Watson out. The 49ers are allowing six catches for 54 yards and 0.7 TDs per game over their last three to the TE position. Moore is a low-end No. 1.
