Browns | Two-quarterback system?

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 18:47:57 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will open the year as the starter, but when asked about installing a package of plays for QB Johnny Manziel, head coach Mike Pettine said that it is tough for a defensive coordinator to prepare for two quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Pettine talked about putting in a package of plays for Manziel after naming Hoyer the Week 1 starter, and his response seems to indicate that he is still planning on doing so. While Manziel won't be able to make a worthwhile fantasy impact with just a handful of plays, the bigger takeaway is that Manziel will likely have a chance to start sooner rather than later. He running ability gives him the potential to pile up fantasy points, making him worth a late-round stash in drafts.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could play later

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 07:17:34 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2, and it sounds like he must perform extremely well to hold off Manziel. Manziel is a mid-to-low QB2 with upside.

Browns | Brian Hoyer named starter

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 05:42:33 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer has been named the starting quarterback over QB Johnny Manziel. Head coach Mike Pettine wrote the announcement in an e-mail and said Manziel made great strides, but Hoyer had a decided edge.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2 in fantasy leagues. Manziel should only be drafted in dynasty leagues. If you're in a deeper single-year league, target him as a low QB2. In most mixed leagues, you can probably score him on waivers during the season if you choose to do so.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could be facing a fine

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 05:49:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could be fined for an obscene gesture he made toward the Washington Redskins' bench in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It could also have displeased the team enough to name Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback while Manziel matures. Both players struggled in the game, but the team wants to name a starter before the next preseason game.

Browns | Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel struggle

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 20:54:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed two of his six pass attempts for 16 yards during the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18, and QB Johnny Manziel completed seven of his 16 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Manziel was also sacked three times and gave the middle finger to the Washington Redskins' bench.

Fantasy Tip: The starting QB situation in Cleveland really isn't much clearer after this game. From a fantasy standpoint, Manziel has a much higher ceiling thanks to his ability to gain yards on the ground, and he is worth adding as a QB2, even if he doesn't open the year as the starter.

Browns | Johnny Manziel making strides

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:06:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel worked with the first-team offense in 9-on-9 and 11-on-11 drills in practice Friday, Aug. 15, and looked better going through his progressions. Head coach Mike Pettine said the team has left all of their options on the table when determining who the starting quarterback would be going into Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has closed the gap between he and Brian Hoyer for the starting gig heading into Week 1. The team's next preseason game will likely determine the winner, and Hoyer probably still has the slight edge. Manziel could be starting early in the season if he loses the battle and Hoyer struggles early on. It's wise to ignore both options as your backup QB.
