Cedric Tillman

24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Tillman had a slow start to his rookie season after being selected in the third round of the draft. In the receiver’s first seven games, he had three catches for 10 yards. Beginning in Week 12, Tillman became more involved in the offense. During that time, he had a trio of games with at least 43 yards. Even though there weren’t signs of dominance, Tillman likely showed enough to see an expanded role in 2024. However, expect Amari Cooper, David Njoku and Jerry Jeudy to be the top pass catchers for the Browns. As a result, Tillman’s production may be limited. Read Past Outlooks

Could take step forward in Year 2

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer and Zac Jackson of The Athletic suggest that Tillman (concussion) is a candidate to take a step forward in his second season as a pro.
ANALYSIS
Per Cabot, the Browns figure to frequently employ Amari Cooper, Jerry Jeudy and Elijah Moore in three-receiver sets, but Tillman nonetheless should see his share of opportunities as the season progresses, especially if injuries hit the aforementioned trio. As a rookie, the 2023 third-round pick recorded a 21-224-0 line on 44 targets in 14 regular-season games, but if he's able to carve out steadier playing time in 2024, the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder -- who missed Cleveland's wild-card loss to the Texans with a concussion -- could emerge as a solid complementary option alongside the team's top pass catchers. Also in the mix for snaps in the Browns' WR corps are 2022 third-rounder David Bell and 2024 fifth-rounder Jamari Thrash.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
The Browns stood pat in the third round of April's draft and selected Tillman despite more pressing needs on the defensive line. Though the team had made moves to bolster the wideout corps earlier in the offseason, the Browns decided they couldn't pass on the 6-3, 215-pounder, who the club believes could be a red-zone threat for QB Deshaun Watson. Tillman had 12 TDs in 2021 before an ankle injury limited his availability in 2022. He'll need to earn his snaps among a crowded position group and is expected to start down the depth chart. As a result, the Tennessee product's rookie season may not provide much fantasy value, but Tillman could move into a starting role by 2024, if the Browns allow Donovan Peoples-Jones to walk.

Taking advantage of opportunities
WRCleveland Browns
June 24, 2024
Tillman displayed significant growth during the Browns' offseason program, Daniel Oyefusi of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Amari Cooper was away from the team while seeking a new contract extension while Jerry Jeudy missed time with an undisclosed injury, opening up reps for other wideouts. Tillman was the one to take the most advantage, as he built chemistry with quarterback Deshaun Watson while demonstrating better habits in the weight room and in team meetings. Cooper, Jeudy and Elijah Moore seem locked into the top three spots on the depth chart, but Tillman, a third-round pick in 2023, could make a push for a bigger role in training camp.
