Here are some of the Browns' fantasy football options this week:
QB Colt McCoy (concussion) has been sent home every day this week and at this point, he's highly unlikely to play. Look for Seneca Wallace to get the start. However, he has no fantasy relevance.
RB Peyton Hillis had a full practice Wednesday and should be ready to handle a full load if he suffers no setbacks with his hip. It's possibly the healthiest he has been this season and he is always worth starting when healthy.
The Browns haven't seen the Montario Hardesty they drafted but believe he'll be better next year. Don't pencil him in as a starter as long as Hillis is still a Brown. Hardesty has minimal value this week.
TE Benjamin Watson suffered his second concussion since Week Seven, and could be shelved for the rest of the season. He had no fantasy value and had been a nonfactor all season.
TE Evan Moore could post better numbers the rest of the way. With Watson out, Watson's average of five targets the past three weeks could go to Moore. Moore's average targets over that span has been three targets, so Moore could see about eight targets. However, he is a long-shot play.
