Fantasy owners desperate for help at running back have likely been frustrated when turning to the Cleveland Browns for help. The Browns rank 29th in the NFL in rushing yards and last in the league with only three touchdowns on the ground all season.
Reliable fantasy producer, Peyton Hillis has been in and out of the lineup with a tender hamstring which has been contributed mightily to the anemic running attack. Backup Chris Ogbonnaya seemed to find a rhythm in mid-November gaining 90 and 115 yards in games against St. Louis and Jacksonville, respectively but with the return of Hillis last week, it appears the running backs are ready to go forward in their defined roles.
Fantasy owners appear to agree according to ESPN's latest Most Added/Dropped Players list as Hillis ranks 16th on the Most Added Players list while Ogbonnaya checks in at number four on the Most Dropped List. Hillis is ready to roll again this week so he is now found on a team in 88.4% of ESPN's fantasy leagues, a positive change of 4.9%. More owners have given up on Ogbonnaya as a fantasy stop-gap measure, as he is now found on teams in just 18.7% of ESPN league's, down 15.6% from last week.
