Fantasy Forecast

Jason Campbell: Campbell has cooled off a bit over the past two games, with no touchdowns and a combined 384 yards. That helps a team win; it doesn't do much for a fantasy team. The Browns have excelled at intercepting passes, with nine. But they've allowed 12 touchdown passes as well as an average of 7.3 yards per pass attempt. Be careful on this one.

Clinton Portis: He's questionable with a hip flexor injury, but the Redskins are cautiously optimistic that he'll play. The only risk is not how well he'll do, but whether or not he'll play – and can he last the whole game? We can't answer that. But if he does play, he'll do well. The Browns rank 25th in run defense and lack depth along the D-line. This is a good chance for Portis to post another 100-yard day. If he's healthy.

Santana Moss: Only two catches in the past two weeks combined. And the Browns actually fare well against the pass. But part of that is because they've faced Joe Flacco and Ryan Fitzpatrick. That'll boost any team's numbers. They do have smaller, quicker corners. At some point the Redskins need to get Moss going again. It may be that Antwaan Randle El has a bigger day considering what Steve Smith did vs. the Browns Monday (nine catches, 94 yards). He was open on a lot of short crossing=2 0routes.

Chris Cooley: He's caught at least five passes in four of the past five games. But he only has one touchdown. So that's not much productivity. The Browns might get back strong safety Sean Jones for this week, which would boost their coverage against Cooley. But Dallas' Jason Witten gave Cleveland fits in the opener and finished with 96 yards receiving. The Giants' Kevin Boss had one catch for 24 yards Monday.

Redskins defense: There's too many banged-up players for our liking. The Browns appear to be getting healthy, especially on the line, and likely will try to pound the Redskins down the field with Jamal Lewis. Corner Shawn Springs is doubtful and Chris Horton, though he practiced Friday, might be limited because of his ankle injury. The Browns will test them downfield. The problem is, which Browns' offense will show up? The one from the first four games or the one from Monday? Have they turned a corner? Well, they are healthier and there is talent. You likely would get points from turnovers because Derek Anderson rarely goes without an interception – which he did Monday. He's due.
