Antonio Callaway fantasy should you pick up the Browns WR heavy calm Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway is an intriguing fantasy football target the Cleveland Browns revealed a surprising decision Saturday to part ways with wide receiver Josh Gordon while it hasn’t been finalized whether they’ll release or trade him one thing that’s certain is that he’s not a part of the team’s future Callaway had a plethora of run-ins with the law as Spencer Davis of SEC Country points out including a credit card scam and issues with marijuana among other things the off-field concerns were well documented during the HBO series Hard Knocks which aired ahead of the season and the issues led to him falling to the fourth round of the 2018 in FL Draft the big question becomes with Callaway now being a starter is he worth picking up in fantasy football leagues week one wasn’t a positive sign we can’t exactly base our entire decision on call aways fantasy football value off just week one but he was out snapped by team made Raja Higgins in a big way according to Football Outsiders Higgins played sixty percent of the snaps while Calloway was on the field for just seventeen percent this isn’t to say that Calloway won’t see extended work and a much higher number of snaps with Gordon now gone though the 27 year old who’s on his way out of Cleveland played 78 percent of the team’s offensive snaps last week so there’s a lot of work to go around the Browns are obviously high on their rookie wideout who flashed plenty of upside over his 16 games with Florida during his freshman season Calloway averaged 19 point 4 yards per reception and finished the two-year spend with 89 receptions for 1399 yards and seven touchdowns due to the upside if you plan a 12 or 14 team League and have space on your bench add in Callaway is a smart play we’ll have to see how the Browns ought to utilize him but I’d grab him while you can
