2023 NFL Power Rankings: Cleveland Browns

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the Cleveland Browns in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 16

Player: RB Nick Chubb
Current contract situation: Under contract through the 2024 season

The Browns' All-Pro running back suffered a serious left knee injury Monday night against the Steelers and is likely done for the season. Chubb still has one more season left on the contract extension he signed in 2021 but has no guaranteed money left on his deal after this year. Running backs, even elite ones, no longer carry the value they once did in the modern NFL. Chubb has been the heart and soul of Cleveland's offense for several years. What the Browns do now, in light of Chubb's injury, will be one of the next big storylines regarding star rushers. -- Jake Trotter

NFL.com -- Rank: 13

The awful Nick Chubb injury cloaks everything right now. You just can't replace Chubb, although Jerome Ford showed real heart Monday night. What worries me is that Chubb's absence puts more on Deshaun Watson and the pass protection. Two of Watson's three turnovers were returned for touchdowns, vaulting a stagnant Steelers offense to victory. Deshaun's interception might go down as a "drop," but the ball was not well-thrown. His first fumble was huge, until his defense bailed him out. No such luck on the second one. Some of his throws were wildly off-target. And what's up with 30 penalty yards from the quarterback? The whole situation just gives me the willies right now, even if this defense deserves a lot of credit.

2023 NFL Predictions: AFC North

Before the start of the season, we will post NFL division-by-division predictions for the 2023 NFL regular season and postseason.

Instead of projecting an outright winner and loser in all 272 regular-season games, we've assigned a win probability to each team in every game and totaled them up.

The four AFC North teams are projected to win more games combined than the four teams in any other division in our full-season projections.

Deshaun Watson: Appearing in only six games over the past two seasons, Watson started slowly (under 13 fantasy points in three of his first four games) but closed 2022 with two solid performances — 21.9 (weekly QB8) and 19.6 (QB6), respectively. Given his dual-threat skill set, he has upside for a quarterback being drafted as a back-end QB1.
