Jordan Cameron, TE, Browns
|TE - #5||53.71||CLE||Out||4 years||26||6'5||245|
2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jul-08-2014 by Rob Warner
This USC alum had a true breakout during his third NFL season, finishing with 80 catches for 917 yards (61 YPG) and seven touchdowns. Over his first two seasons, Cameron totaled only 26 catches for 259 yards with one touchdown. He benefited greatly from the first year of the TE friendly Rob Chudzinski & Norv Turner regime (unfortunately they are no longer in Cleveland). With Josh Gordon likely in street clothes for the 2014 season, Cameron will be given tons of targets to lead the team in receiving, providing a solid chance for him to crack the Top 5 fantasy tight ends for the second straight year (finished fifth in 2013). With a monster workload on the horizon, Cameron's 50.53 ADP could present a great value due to expectations that haven't quite caught up to the benefits of his situation.
Editor's note: One small concern is that Cameron started out low in 2013 and coasted for the majority of the season. Five of his seven TDs came in the first month of the season. He also only eclipsed 100 receiving yards once after that first month. There's a lot to like about Cameron if you can find the right value during your draft.
Pat McManamon, who covers the Cleveland Browns for ESPN.com, says tight end Jordan Cameron will not play Sunday, but he did return to practice on Friday. It was his first practice since Week 8.
Cameron has missed the past three games due to concussion-related issues. He has posted 13 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown in six games this year. With Cameron out again, Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge will see the bulk of the action at tight end.
If you've held onto Cameron this long, what's another week? With him practicing Friday, it bodes well for him to return to the field for Week 13.
The Browns, who are in the thick of the AFC playoff picture at 6-4, will get a boost in the passing game this week with the return of WR Josh Gordon. If they can get past the Falcons and come out of Week 12 at 7-4, getting Cameron back is only going to help Gordon's and QB Brian Hoyer's fantasy value. Once Cameron returns, he's got to be seriously considered as a TE1 in any format. The position is super thin. Dray and Barnidge hold little to no fantasy value.

|5.12||DraftTV.com - @ShanePHallam - Love getting Cameron at 5.12. As one of the few weapons on the Browns, he should be a crutch for either Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel. The talent is undeniable, and though TE does have some upside depth, this is a nice spot for one.|
