Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has turned off head coach Mike Pettine, while general manager Ray Farmer, owner Jimmy Haslam and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo believe Manziel can be salvaged, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Pettine has installed Josh McCown as the starter entering training camp, and Manziel will have to earn the spot back. McCown obviously isn't the answer at 35, so the potential for Manziel is still there. At this rate, McCown is a low-end QB2, and Manziel shouldn't be drafted.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could benefit from new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, according to Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr. Carr said DeFilippo will do great with Manziel, adding that DeFilippo has worked with a running quarterback before in Kansas City Chiefs QB Terrelle Pryor.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Manziel will even start for the Browns in 2015, but the DeFilippo hiring bodes well. At this point, however, it's best to tread lightly with Manziel.

Former Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo will be hired as the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator. The deal has not officially been completed, but it's expected to be done by the end of the week, according to a source. DeFilippo hasn't called plays at the NFL level yet but did so at San Jose State.
Fantasy Tip: DeFilippo's biggest task will be working with and molding Johnny Manziel, who struggled mightily in his limited starting action in his rookie season. With a lack of offensive weapons for Cleveland, fantasy football drafters shouldn't expect much from Manziel in his second season.
