Myles Garrett, EDGE
Myles Garrett is the best player on the Browns defense and the one individual capable of flipping the momentum of a game.
Against the Raiders, Garrett might get the opportunity to feast, playing against the Raiders offensive line, which ranks 26 out of 32 teams.
Garrett grades out as Pro Football Focus’ sixth best pass rusher entering Week 4. He’s also been tremendous against the run, posting higher marks in stopping running back (85.6) than pass rushing (75.0)
His presence should also be felt throughout the defensive line. Fellow EDGE defender Emmanuel Ogbah is healthy and ready to play.
The Browns passed on Bradley Chubb during the draft because of the belief Ogbah could be a good player with Garrett drawing so much attention on the opposite side of the field.
The both of them should continue to free up defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi, who already has three sacks entering the contest. When’s the last time the Browns had a pass rush coming from the interior?
Ogunjobi is quickly becoming a fan favorite.
Garrett makes so much happen, even when he’s not the one making the actual play. Considering how bad Oakland’s line is, he can have an enormous impact on whether their Browns win their first back-to-back game since 2014.
