I watched him on the Bengals the past 3 years and I think he has a great opportunity in CLE. For the Bengals he was a rotational player used exclusively in the slot and out of the backfield, but with the Browns saying he'll be used on the outside as well. With Gordon out and Austin as his top competition, I really like his potential.

always liked him, tough to trust tho.  I may use a flier on him but the hype may push him up too high w Gordon out

Totally in to this guy this year.

Drafted him as a flier, expecting him to be a WR4 /nice bye week fill in guy. He can flat out play, and I am glad he is going to a team with an OC that likes to use to short to intermediate route tree a lot (Garcon didn't rack up thoe 40+ targets all through deep passes...)

Check out this link. Hi cuts are so sharp, expect a lot of 5-10 yard passes he  un into big gains.

He had some amazing plays two years ago. if he stays healthy and gets the touches I think he will (especially considering the Gordon suspension), I think he could even become a sneaky consistent WR3 in PPR formats.

What's not to like, especially if you can get him in double digit rounds? He and Cameron will dominate targets. Might not have a very high ceiling but he's well worth a cheap flier. A WR1 on a bad team is most often better than a WR3 on a good team. (Eric Decker being an outlier last year.)

Grabbed him late in one league as a bench stash. Who else can they throw to? I think Cameron will have to become the intermediate guy and Hawkins could be what Cameron was to Gordon last year. Someone needs to do it.

I could see him catching 70 balls just due to sheer volume and lack of competition. That dude has some crazy agility.

No, with Austin on the team. Let's stop pretending that Austin is automatically going to be hurt.

They have mentioned that BabyHawk has shown enough ability to warrant lining up outside and inside. Huge for his value. This He is definitely the second WR now that Gordon is officially done. The WR coach has been raving about him, and I think 85 Catches is not out of the question (roughly5 catches a game over 16).

I'm hanging on to Hawkins at the end of my bench.  He may not break any long ones, but he's a decent bye-week PPR option that can easily get you 5-55.  In the double digit rounds, nobody is expecting to find a Dez Bryant.  I think his ADP will continue to rise until the season starts.  Would rather have him than any of the Raiders or Bills WRs.

Maybe I should say he may not break many long ones, would that make you happy?
3 year career.  86 catches.  11.7 yards per catch average.  THREE (at least from what I can see) catches of longer than 50 yards.

But mainly it's a function of the Cleveland offense.  I see him ticketed as the short passing option for the Browns while Austin stretches the field.  I'll admit I don't watch much of the Browns, so somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

I just added him in a PPR league. I think he might be a really good WR3 option.

In standard I think he'll be pretty unremarkable.

He was decent in PPR while in Cincy.   In Cleveland with no #1 WR....he should get a lot of targets unless Hoyer locks onto Cameron & Austin.

Starting him with confidence against NO in PPR. It will be just like last week where they are behind early and need a lot of passes to catch up.

I should like this guy more than I do.  In PPR, he's almost a lock for 7-8 receptions.  He's small, so he's not going to be outjumping defenders in the end zone.  But if Julian Edelman can catch 13 balls for 78 yards in game 2 of 2013, why not Andrew Hawkins?

Really debating starting him over guys like Cruz and Colston this week, I have a good feeling he's in for a nice day at home against the Saints. Hoyer is super limited on opitons, I see no reason why he shouldn't he shouldn't nab his fair share of receptions. I think he has a very high floor at this point with the lack of options on the Browns offense.

I've been touting him as my PPR sleeper machine to anyone that'll listen.  He's in the perfect position to succeed on this mess of a team right now and especially with Hoyer and Jonny F looking for anyone to throw it to.  He's shifty, small, great hands and extremely agile.  The perfect mold for PPR gold.  I love me some Baby Hawk.
