The Quandry of the Cleveland WR’s

So I reached out to the editor of  www.brownsgab.com Randy Ward to discuss the WR and QB situation in Cleveland. I was incredibly high on Massaquoi and Cribbs going into the off season. But suddenlyI heard about Robinske. With this cluttered situation developing I needed a resident expert’s opinion. This is what Mr. Ward said:

“With OTA’s and Mandatory Mini-camp wrapped up and training camp right around the corner the Browns receiving core is in better shape then what people think. With Mohammed Massaquoi being the teams number one and Robiskie being the number two this team is very young at the position. Robiskie had a disappointing rookie season for the club in 2009 and will be better in his sophomore season for the team.

Robiskie can catch the football and running good routes is a strength of his. The team is going to have a run first mentality but  should pass the ball more effectively this season. Robiskie has been praised by coach Mangini all camp long with his work ethic and ability on the field. Before the camps, I didn’t have much faith in the Ohio State Alum but after seeing him with my own eyes he has been on the field as the number two receiver and played well.

I predict Massaquoi to be a fantasy football steal in many leagues this season. With Robiskie I would and will take a long look at him in my fantasy leagues late your draft. He has looked really good and it looks like he also could have a breakout season this year.

Delhomme and Wallace are going to both play this season. It isn’t going to be a Warner/Leinhert situation because they are different Quarterbacks, Wallace adds another dimension to this football team. They put a package in called “Cyclone” where Wallace at the Quarterback position, with Cribbs on the field at the same time. That is going to give coordinators headaches all season long.”

What Randy has decribed in this article throws a wrench into my off season plans for acquiring Browns WR’s. To my dismay there is a new man in the picture  Brian Robiskie. This dilutes Cribbs value because after signing that off season contract I thought for sure that Cribbs would emerge as the #2 WR. It looks like he is turning into more of a Z receiver. Similar to the role he had last year. So if your leagues gives TDs for special teams and you are desperate for a WR on a bye week Cribbs may still hold some value. Looks like Mangini might be trying to create a Mike Vick wildcat for Cribbs using Wallace.

Bottom Line – Only Massaquoi holds value in fantasy at the present time. He is a serviceable #1 WR on a team much in flux. I will however keep a close eye on Robinske and possible grab him off waivers during the season if he shows promise. I am not a fan of the 2 QB system but lets hope that Mangini Magic finds his way back to the promised land. The Browns are a franchise that deserves some magic.
