Browns: 2009 NFL Regular Season Schedule | Fantasy Football Rankings
The Cleveland Browns 2009 Regular Season Schedule
The Browns fell apart last season after such a strong showing in the 2007 campaign. Derek Anderson and Braylon Edwards looked like different players as they just seemed lost at times on the football field. If this team has any hope of turning things around they must have good play from the quarterback position and the defense needs to improve.
Below are three sections of interest that are worth paying attention to for fantasy owners coming into the season for this team. First we have listed our fantasy players which we believe are worth paying attention to this season.
Next is strength of schedule against the run, pass and points against. Lastly we have a few games selected that will be key in telling how this team will preform for the 2009 season.
Strength of Schedule
vs Run 9th Hardest Schedule
vs Pass 12th Hardest Schedule
vs Points Given Up 16th Hardest Schedule
For my money if the Browns are going to have a successful season they will need Brady Quinn as their starting quarterback. To me this guy has the up tempo style of play that this group needs as Anderson tends to play like he’s half asleep at times on the field.
Games of Interest
Weeks 15 and 16: Sure this is looking far into the season and you never know what teams will actually be good and which ones won’t but this team should have success in these weeks.
In those contests they play the Chiefs and Raiders and since most fantasy leagues play their playoffs in those weeks, it will be interesting to see if Cleveland players can have good games. One thing is for sure I would rather they play those teams than the Ravens or Steelers if I have any starting players for the Browns.
2009 Football Projection
This season at best will probably end up being a .500 season for the Browns as they are in a rebuilding phase once again. Much like the Bengals situation, Cleveland needs their defense to show much improvement so that they can have a run a the playoffs in the 2010 season.
