Terrance West will start for Browns but ship has sailed for fantasy owners
Terrance West will start for the Browns in Week 17. We take a look at the fantasy implications.
Baltimore native Terrance West will start at running back today for the Browns against the Ravens. The rookie’s role fluctuated in 2014

While the Browns backfield has been far from explosive, Isaiah Crowell has been the better player down the stretch. It’s likely that the Browns are evaluating their talent for the 2015 season. Expect Crowell and West to share the workload throughout Sunday’s game.
Fantasy impact: Even thought West’s designation as starter seems unwarranted, fantasy owners wouldn’t have gained much even with Crowell. Neither running back has been much of an asset as of late. The fact that West is getting the start simply makes the decision to bench all Cleveland running backs that much easier.
