Greg Little | Cleveland Browns | WR
2013 Experience: 3rd Season
|Twitter News||Team Schedule|
Fantasy Football Outlook: Little failed to do things up to the standards of Coach Pat Shurmur early on and was pulled from the field at times because of it. A disappointing season overall, but Little did have another late season run of production that gives us hope he can amount to something.
I don’t think Little will have a breakout season this year and I’m not sold he will ever do it. That said, he might end up being a respectable receiver for an NFL team and hang around the league for awhile. His max value will be found in PPR leagues where fantasy owners can take advantage of his possession receiver tendencies.
Little has good moves when the football is in his hands but he’s not the field stretching talent like his counterpart Josh Gordon. Look to Gordon as the receiver to target in Cleveland and perhaps sleeper tight end Jordan Cameron.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
Like A.J. Green in Cincinnati, the opportunity was there for Greg Little to assert himself as the No.1 receiver in the Browns offense.
Little started out slow but did eventually work his way into a starting role. Unfortunately, Little struggled in his rookie year (not uncommon for rookies, especially receivers) as he struggled with drop passes. I still feel Little can be a respectable wide receiver in the NFL and we will have to keep an eye on his progress this off-season. With the addition of Trent Richardson in the backfield, Little should see frequent free releases off the line, as defenses will likely load eight in the box, meaning they will keep their corners playing off-coverage in contrast to press-man.
A great benefit (having a stud running back on the team) to just about all receivers, Little should have a better year and I wouldn’t be surprised if he at least gave fantasy owners WR3 production. Going as the 47th receiver of the board in current ADP trends, Little is a nice stash away player with upside on draft day.
Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
The Browns need to find an impact receiver if they have any hopes of making the playoffs in the future. This season will be another rebuilding year as second year quarterback Colt McCoy figures to be the teams quarterback. If Greg Little can show he’s ready for a full time role this preseason, he shouldn’t have a problem getting a starting job on this team.
With a big frame and exciting skill set, Little could end up making an impact for this team in his rookie season and is worth strong consideration as one of the top five rookie receivers to select in dynasty rookie drafts. Unless we see Little light up the field in the preseason and win a starting job, he’s not worth drafting in redraft leagues of 12 teams or less.
