Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will not have a package of plays created for him to run off the bench, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel has been slow to adjust to taking snaps under center and the new playbook.
FANTASY TIP: Manziel has mid-to-low QB2 value and could see his first action sometime this season.

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) said Wednesday, Aug. 20, that he feels good. The team wants to see him practice Thursday, Aug. 21, before deciding if he will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Dallas Cowboys.
FANTASY TIP: Moreno is expected to serve as the backup to Lamar Miller, at least initially. For now, fantasy owners will only want to invest a late-round pick on the veteran.
