Which Cleveland Browns players are worth adding to your team(s) during the 2017 fantasy football season?

The Cleveland Browns may not have any elite fantasy giants, but there are a few players that could make a big difference later in your league’s draft.

Despite what many people think, fantasy football leagues are not won by the first and second round picks. Almost every team in any given fantasy league will have at least one top-tier performer.

Just because you hit on your first few picks does not mean your team will see success. What is really going to separate the great teams from their opponents is the strategic, late-round pickups.

As far as those top-20 or top-25 guys go, the Browns may not have one, though running back Isaiah Crowell may be close. However, Cleveland does have a few names that may stand out once the draft begins to wind down.

Of course, they may not be guaranteed the lion-share of work at their position yet, but things change. Others may surprise you that they are even on the list.

Whether it’s a standard league, a keeper league, or even a full-blown dynasty, here are a few Browns that could give a great fantasy team an extra boost.
