Fantasy start/sit advice, Week 15: Isaiah Crowell

The Browns’ rookie has provided fantasy owners with some solid production. Is he worth the start in Week 15?

Cleveland Browns‘ running back Isaiah Crowell is quietly having a productive and impressive rookie campaign. He finished last week with a 14/51/1 line and the touchdown was his eighth on the season. While Crowell hasn’t yet gone over 100 yards receiving in a game, he’s averaging 4.4 YPC and has proven to be a viable chain mover for the Browns.

Crowell remains in a committee with fellow rookie Terrance West, but he is healthy this week and it is a good bet to out-touch West. Also helping Crowell’s outlook is the Browns have decided to hand the reigns over to first-round pick Johnny Manziel. The dual-threat quarterback should open up a lot more lanes for the running game than Brian Hoyer ever could.

Fantasy Impact: Crowell won’t have too much trouble moving the ball against the Cincinnati Bengals. Their defense gives up the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. With “Johnny Football” under center, Crowell should see plenty of opportunities to make plays. He remains an RB2 with upside.
