Joe Haden is one of the toughest young cornerbacks in football. He consistently covers the Browns’ toughest assignment each week, and whoever goes up against him is going to have their hands full.

But who actually is that? Under normal circumstances, it would be Calvin Johnson, and we would enjoy a top-level matchup between Johnson and Haden. But the knee swelling that kept Johnson out of last Sunday’s game against the Packers hasn’t subsided, and this matchup becomes a lot more lopsided if it turns into Haden vs. Kris Durham or Patrick Edwards.

In that case, you can probably just go ahead and take those guys out of your fantasy lineup.
