2. Cleveland Browns WR Demetric Felton

The Browns offense was in severe need of lightning jolt coming out of a halftime. The orange helmets went into the locker room tied at 14, but without Jarvis Landry, Cleveland lost its intensity–a point reiterated by Myles Garrett and Nick Chubb after the game.

Factor in the Browns not attempting downfield strikes because of a left-shoulder injury sustained by Baker Mayfield and, well, let’s just say the Browns needed someone–anyone–to step up.

Enter Felton, who on 2nd and 10 from the Houston 33, took a Mayfield screen to the house for a touchdown, giving Cleveland a 21-14 lead and putting up the Browns for good.

Felton didn’t record a snap in the season opener against the Chiefs, but now with Landry out, I don’t know how Stefanski can afford to lead him out of his weekly scheming.

This isn’t to say Felton is going to lead the team in touches, but obviously, he’s too valuable not to record a snap.

Felton only ran three routes in this one, ending with two catches for 51 yards. He gets the Most memorable play of the game, though.
