10/15/2013 2:20:00 PM
Description: Wideout and kick return specialist Josh Cribbs has signed with the New York Jets.
Insight: The Jets also signed Greg Sales off the Eagles practice squad. This likely means that both Clyde Gates and Santonio Holmes will miss more time.
 
8/25/2013 9:01:00 PM
Description: The Raiders cut wideout Josh Cribbs on Sunday.
Insight: The Pro Bowl return specialist appears to be nearing the end of his career. Even if Cribbs had made Oakland's final 53-man roster, he wouldn't have been a fantasy asset.
 
5/16/2013 7:31:00 PM
Description: Former Browns receiver/return specialist Josh Cribbs has signed with the Oakland Raiders.
Insight: Cribbs continues to be an excellent kick returner but he's never offered fantasy owners much in the receiving game. You shouldn't worry about him on draft day.
 
11/21/2010 11:02:00 AM
Description: As expected, Cribbs will not play for the Browns in Week 11. The Plain Dealer reports that he could be out for Week 12 as well.
Insight: Cribbs dislocated several toes in the overtime loss to the Jets. Fortunately, he's not much of a fantasy option in most formats. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/19/2010 2:04:00 PM
Description: Cribbs suffered multiple dislocated toes against the Jets and has yet to practice this week. The team hasn't ruled him out for Sunday's meeting with Jacksonville, though.
Insight: That move seems inevitable, but coach Eric Mangini is king of holding his cards close to his vest. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/1/2010 11:04:00 PM
Description: Cribbs was limited in practice earlier this week with an ankle injury but is no longer listed on the injury report.
Insight: Cribbs doesn't get consistent enough looks to be a quality fantasy option and faces a poor matchup in the Bengals. That said, if he happens to be your best option, he should be good to go. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/27/2010 12:05:00 AM
Description: Cribbs caught five passes for a team-high 58 yards in Sunday's loss at Baltimore.
Insight: The team purportedly wants to get Cribbs the ball more, and his receptions have increased each week this season. Overall, he's already halfway to last year's catch total of 20. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/20/2010 1:00:00 AM
Description: Cribbs caught three balls for 74 yards in Week 2, including a 65-yard touchdown.
Insight: Cribbs' big-play ability has never been in question but he'll have to display an upward trend in targets/touches to become a reliable fantasy option. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/13/2010 8:05:00 PM
Description: After an off-season of stories about how the Browns would create new ways to get Cribbs the ball, the swiss-army receiver opened with just five total touches -- three rushes and two receptions. He did complete a pass, as well.
Insight: The three carries were less than his per-game average from last season, and the catches came on Cribbs' only two targets. We'll see if things change going forward, but Cribbs seems likely to carry much more value in real life than in fantasy. (RapidDraft.com)
 
6/28/2010 12:46:00 AM
Description: Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns want to find more ways to get Cribbs the ball on offense.
Insight: It might be more newsworthy if this weren't the case, as it would prove the incompetence of the Browns' offensive staff. Cribbs is among the more dynamic players in the league and should be a focal point for the Browns. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, it will be tough to get him consistent touches unless Cribbs takes on more of a traditional wideout role. Look for him to be more valuable on the field than in fantasy. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/21/2010 8:50:00 PM
Description: Josh Cribbs revealed on Twitter Monday that he intends to lose 13 pounds before the start of training camp.
Insight: That might not be a good idea as he will be taking a lot more punishment this season. Cribbs will used early and often by Cleveland, making him an intriguing player for fantasy purposes. (sportsBuff.com)
 
6/7/2010 11:32:00 PM
Description: Josh Cribbs says the Browns' coaching staff intends to use him "all across the field" this season.
Insight: That's fine, except fantasy owners have to realize that Cribbs still is unlikely to accrue more than five touches a game. His fantasy worth in leagues that don't count return yardage is suspect at best. (sportsBuff.com)
 
5/30/2010 2:04:00 PM
Description: Josh Cribbs says teams won't be able to prepare for all the variety the Browns offense has in store this season.
Insight: That's a fairly preposterous statement for an offense that's going to be run by Jake Delhomme. Look for the Browns to have yet another high draft pick next April. (sportsBuff.com)
 
5/2/2010 6:10:00 PM
Description: Though Josh Cribbs is currently penciled in opposite Mohamed Massaquoi, the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes a veteran addition is "inevitable.
Insight: It?s definitely possible, but Cribbs might be the best option for the Browns. He is their most dynamic playmaker and they should be trying to get the ball into his hands as often as possible. (SportsBuff.com
 
3/28/2010 8:09:00 PM
Description: The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns are not looking to use Cribbs as a running back this season.
Insight: They say that now, but the fact remains that Cribbs is without a doubt the most dangerous weapon the Browns have. Getting the ball into his hands any way they can will be a huge priority. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/6/2010 11:36:00 AM
Description: The Browns signed Cribbs to a new three year, $20 million contract.
Insight: It seems as though the team finally came to it?s senses. Cribbs is their most talented player and getting the ball into his hands more often next season has got to be a top priority. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/6/2010 11:34:00 AM
Description: The Browns signed Cribbs to a new three year, $20 million contract.
Insight: It seems as though the team finally came to it?s senses. Cribbs is their most talented player and getting the ball into his hands more often next season has got to be a top priority. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/12/2010 8:49:00 AM
Description: The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns have had positive discussions with Cribbs on a new contract.
Insight: Cribbs is hoping to get a new contract done before the NFL combine in two weeks. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/14/2010 9:05:00 AM
Description: The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns are expected to make a much better offer to Cribbs.
Insight: The Browns' insist that the $1.4 million contract offer was not their final offer but it still seems likely that Cribbs forces his way out of Cleveland. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/12/2010 9:03:00 AM
Description: Cribbs has made it clear that he would sit out next season if the Browns do not give him a better contract offer.
Insight: The only other solution would be to trade Cribbs who has requested one. It is still up in the air on how the Browns will handle the situation. (SportsBuff.com)
