Player Outlook
Until Woods finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Has suspension lifted

    Woods (Achilles) had his suspension lifted by the NFL on Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Woods was given a six-game suspension in early December for violating the league's personal conduct policy, and he's now served his punishment for the required number of contests. The ban didn't impact his ability to take the field, as the wideout ruptured his Achilles in early April and was consequently ruled out for the season. Woods will look to be healthy enough to participate in training camp this summer.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Gets six-game ban

    Woods (Achilles) was handed a six-game suspension Friday for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. While taking part in an offseason workout with quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder) in April, Woods suffered a ruptured Achilles, so he already was out for the season. Now, Woods won't get a paycheck for the final six games of the campaign following the suspension. Considering the timing of the injury, the 2022 sixth-round pick may be healthy by the start of the 2024 offseason program, with five catches (on 10 targets) for 45 yards in 10 career appearances to date.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Shifts to different list

    Woods (Achilles) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday. Woods was previously on the active/NFI list, but with no chance of returning in 2023 due to a ruptured Achilles, the move makes sense. The 2022 sixth-round selection will continue to focus on his recovery and making a healthy return in 2024.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Diagnosed with ruptured Achilles

    Woods has been diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles and will likely miss the entire 2023 campaign after undergoing surgery, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Woods suffered the injury during an offseason workout with Deshaun Watson. As a rookie last year, the sixth-round pick caught five of 10 targets for 45 yards across 10 appearances (144 offensive snaps). The injury has little impact on Cleveland's targeting depth chart. The Browns fortified their receiving corps with the additions Elijah Moore, Marquise Goodwin and Jordan Akins.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: May have suffered serious injury

    The Browns are concerned that Woods may have suffered a torn Achilles during workouts with quarterback Deshaun Watson, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports. Woods, a 2022 sixth-round pick, suited up for 10 games as a rookie and secured five of 10 targets for 45 yards. It would be a brutal turn of events if he's indeed suffered a torn Achilles during early offseason personal workouts, as that would jeopardize his availability for the entire 2023 campaign. It sounds like Cleveland will have an official update on the severity of Woods' injury after further testing Tuesday.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Catches lone target in finale

    Woods caught his only target for 15 yards in a 28-14 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. Woods was a bit player for much of his rookie season, sitting out on several occasions early in the campaign as a healthy inactive before seeing an uptick in playing time down the stretch while David Bell and Anthony Schwartz missed time with injuries. All of the Browns' primary wide receivers are under contract for 2023, so Woods' fantasy outlook may not improve much during his second season. He finished the 2022 season with five catches for 45 yards on 10 targets.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: One target in loss

    Woods did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 39-17 loss to Miami. All of Cleveland's active wideouts were targeted in the blowout loss, as they fell behind by multiple scores early in the second half. Woods is playing catchup after missing the first five weeks of the season, but the rookie has moved ahead of Anthony Schwartz to fourth on the depth chart.

    Woods (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Jets. Woods missed last week and part of this week with an illness. However, he did return to practice in full Thursday.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Out for opener

    Woods (illness) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's Week 1 matchup with the Panthers, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. After being limited at practice earlier in the week due to a hamstring issue, an illness is what will ultimately keep Woods sidelined for the Browns' season opner. The rookie will have to wait another week to make his NFL debut. He is expected to provide depth at receiver and potentially contribute on special teams heading into the season.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Questionable for Week 1

    Woods (illness) is questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Panthers, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. Woods was limited at the beginning of the week due to a hamstring injury but is now listed with an illness. Regardless, even if he clears both issues, he isn't expected to garner a major offensive role in Week 1.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Dealing with illness

    Woods didn't practice Friday due to an illness, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Woods dealt with a hamstring injury for the majority of training camp, and he's now on the injury report with an illness. Even if he clears both issues ahead of Week 1, the rookie sixth-round pick isn't expected to garner a major offensive role during Sunday's season opener against the Panthers.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Makes team

    Woods (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Mark Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. It was quite a day for the rookie sixth-round pick out of Oklahoma, who returned to the field for the first time since Aug. 5 and also successfully made the Browns' 53-man roster. While Woods will likely play a limited role out of the gate, there could be opportunities for him to climb the wide receiver depth chart as the season unfolds given Cleveland's lack of established talent at the position behind offseason acquisition Amari Cooper.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Injures hamstring

    Woods will miss "some time" due to a hamstring injury, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Woods, who had already injured his hamstring during the offseason program, aggravated the injury during Wednesday's practice. Coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters, "It's something that affected him back in the spring, so we're just going to be smart," which likely means the team will be in no hurry to rush the 2022 sixth-round pick back on the field.
