Kenneth Murray (15 percent snap share) probably isn't going to establish himself on this defense; White (81 percent) already has.

The Browns will be on bye in Week 13, but Owusu-Koramoah is worth starting against the Ravens in Week 14. 

Christian Jones, LB

Jones enjoyed a bump in playing time when Roquan Smith exited during the Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions, recording six tackles (three solo) across 23 snaps. Hamstring injuries usually take some time to come back from, so Jones will likely be next in line for a starting role. Alec Ogletree is still a more dependable linebacker for IDP purposes, however. 

Dean Marlowe, S

Marlowe played every defensive snap in Week 12, while Will Harris worked as the nickelback because AJ Parker (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. He capitalized on the opportunity with 10 tackles (six solo) and a pass breakup. Parker
