Browns | Brian Hoyer keeping job

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:05:07 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will remain the starting quarterback after the team evaluated the position during their bye week.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has put up solid numbers so far this season and probably will continue to keep the job as long as he is productive. Hoyer likely is not a weekly option for owners, but he could be an option this week against the Tennessee Titans. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Hoyer if they want to spend more money at other positions.

Browns | Jordan Cameron inactive for Week 2

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:38:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is inactive for the Week 2 game Sunday, Sept. 14. TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray are expected to fill in for him.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge and Dray don't warrant fantasy consideration. This is a blow to Brian Hoyer, who had limited options to throw to with Cameron healthy. Hoyer will cost you $4,500 (9% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but he should be avoided except in deep leagues.

Browns | Jordan Cameron expected to sit

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 06:29:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is expected to miss the Week 2 game Sunday, Sept. 14. TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray would fill in for him.

Fantasy Tip: Cameron was a pricey buy at $5,400 (10.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but you should avoid him altogether. Brian Hoyer's stock would also suffer if Cameron were to miss the game.

Browns | Johnny Manziel unlikely to be used

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 16:16:38 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will "probably not" be used in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints unless QB Brian Hoyer is injured, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan also reiterated that Manziel is not a wildcat quarterback, and any plays he would run would come from the regular offensive game plan.

Fantasy Tip: It's a no-brainer: Manziel should not be used in standard or FantasyScore lineups in Week 2.

Browns | Never considered Johnny Manziel

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 23:55:54 -0700

Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine gave an in-game vote of confidence to Browns QB Brian Hoyer when he told the media following the game that inserting QB Johnny Manziel was never an option. The Browns trailed the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-3 at halftime but nearly upset the Steelers thanks to a strong second half. Pittsburgh won 30-27 in overtime.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer will have to throw a lot to keep up with the Saints next week. He's a mid-to-low QB2 option on FantasyScore.

Browns | Johnny Manziel might see some action

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 09:23:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel could see some action in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it will come down to a "feel thing" per the coaching staff. Head coach Mike Pettine said Manziel has a package of plays specific for him and Manziel has prepared this week to play. Pettine said Manziel and QB Brian Hoyer will not be alternating series.

Fantasy Tip: Even at $4,500 in FantasyScore, Manziel should not be a consideration when building out your fantasy football team for Week 1. Hoyer, at $5,000 salary, isn't a better option, either. Stay away from this situation until it plays out and gives you plenty of reasons to consider it.

Browns | No quick hook for Brian Hoyer

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 13:11:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer won't receive a quick hook in the team's Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in favor of QB Johnny Manziel, according to head coach Mike Pettine. However, Hoyer understands that he'll need to produce to hold off a quarterback change during the year.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a low-end QB2 in standard leagues. He's a cheap option in daily games for Week 1, but his matchup against a tough division opponent isn't attractive with limited weapons at his disposal.

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.
