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.
Browns tight end Jordan Cameron will not play in Week 9 due to a concussion sustained last week against Oakland. Due to the quick turnaround to play again on Thursday night, Cameron is in jeopardy of missing more than just one game. Cameron missed a game earlier in the season due to a shoulder injury, and it's very much worth noting that he has now suffered three concussions in two seasons. He's posted 13 catches for 250 yards and one touchdown on the year.
Tight ends Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge will try to pick up the slack for as long as Cameron needs to rest.Fantasy Analysis:
Cameron has not lived up to his lofty preseason expectations, largely due to his inability to stay healthy and on the field. He was considered a top-five fantasy tight end at the start of the season; he's been anything but. Cameron is still one of the most athletically gifted players at the position, so if you've got the roster space, he's worth hanging on to since there simply aren't a ton of superb options at tight end.
Dray nor Barnidge are viable replacements for Cameron in fantasy leagues.

|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.|
