Browns | Browns owner not sold on Johnny Manziel

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 10:09:37 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel had a big proponent last year in owner Jimmy Haslam, but Haslam now thinks the team needs a quarterback in order to get their team turned in the right direction. "We've got to get a quarterback and got to get it fixed," Haslam said. "What I would say to our fans is, we're going to continue to work really hard to find that quarterback who can make us a championship team." Haslam isn't ruling out Manziel being the starting quarterback in 2015, but he's leaving it open for other options, including QBs Brian Hoyer or Connor Shaw.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Manziel didn't have much time to prove himself at the tail end of last season, it apparently was enough to convince the team that they'll have an open competition at the position in training camp this year. Manziel will likely head into fantasy football draft season as a giant risk as a backup QB.

Browns | Brian Hoyer to receive extension?

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 13:46:58 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer could be re-signed this offseason, according to his agent. Hoyer is expected to meet with general manager Ray Farmer and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: It still remains to be seen who will start for the Browns in 2015. Johnny Manziel does have more upside than Hoyer, but neither one is a reliable starting fantasy quarterback at this point.

Browns | Brian Hoyer will make decision on future

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 11:04:38 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will ultimately make the decision on his future, according to general manager Ray Farmer. "If he wants to be back, that leverage is definitely in his court to make that happen," Farmer said. "Assuming that we could agree to that deal, then that opportunity's available. If we can't come to that agreement, then he obviously would not be back. There's a lot of work to be done in that regard."

Browns | Brian Hoyer open to returning

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 14:22:25 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer said he likes the scenario in Cleveland, but he has to be wanted back. Hoyer said he can still coexist with QB Johnny Manziel, adding that once you've played, you don't want to sit on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has done a good job starting for the Browns, but he's not a viable starting quarterback in fantasy leagues unless he's used to spend bigger at other positions.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder, biceps) is dealing with a badly bruised bicep, along with his injured shoulder, according to a league source.

Browns | Brian Hoyer is very sore

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:42:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder) has no structural damage to his shoulder, but he is dealing with a significant bruise suffered in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers. Head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, Dec. 22, that Hoyer is "very sore."

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has a chance to re-gain his starting job for the regular season finale, as Johnny Manziel is already ruled out with a hamstring injury. But Connor Shaw is expected to get first-team reps this week and might make his first career NFL start. Hoyer could be available on an emergency basis only. FantasyScore owners would be wise to avoid the entire situation.
