Tue, 30 Aug 2016 16:53:39 -0700

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 05:36:08 -0700

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 07:17:08 -0700
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis (concussion) is unlikely to play in the team's next preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 18.
Sat, 13 Aug 2016 05:06:15 -0700
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis (concussion) left the preseason game early Friday, Aug. 12, after he suffered a concussion when he was kneed in the head.
Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:44:41 -0700
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis has a chance to stick around with the team if the organization elects to deal or release QB Josh McCown during training camp and the preseason. Davis was signed to a two-year contract extension through 2017, but only $600,000 is guaranteed.
Fantasy Tip: Davis isn't likely to be anything more than the team's third-string quarterback if he sticks around.
Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:23:11 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis went 24-for-46 for 240 yards and two interceptions against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17.
Fantasy Tip: Davis could be with the Browns next season but probably will not have a chance to compete for the starting job during training camp since the team likely will add a quarterback during the offseason. Owners should be able to avoid him in drafts next season.
Thu, 31 Dec 2015 09:42:07 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) has officially been ruled out for the season finale in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is in the league's concussion protocol. QB Austin Davis will start with QB Pat Devlin as the backup.
Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have been a top-10 fantasy matchup for opposing quarterbacks all year with their weak secondary, but putting your faith in Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) doesn't make any sense on FantasyScore. Look elsewhere and pass up Cleveland's other skill offensive positions, too.
Thu, 31 Dec 2015 08:43:13 -0800
Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will start in place of QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) Sunday, Jan. 3, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't a good start on FantasyScore in the finale.
Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:16:49 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after going in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Dec. 30. QB Austin Davis is expected to start in Manziel's place.
Fantasy Tip: Manziel would've been a deep sleeper candidate on FantasyScore had he played, but you can forget about that now. Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is facing a vulnerable secondary for the Steelers, but that's not enough to want to have him in your daily lineups.
Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:16:51 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) will start in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers if he's cleared to play while in the concussion protocol. If Manziel can't go, QB Austin Davis would make his second start of the year ahead of QB Terrelle Pryor.
Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Manziel's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) progress in the next few days. If he looks good to play, he could be a deep sleeper worth considering on FantasyScore. The Steelers secondary is a big concern, and they made Ryan Mallett look great in Week 16. Plus, Manziel can make things happen with his legs, too.
Sat, 19 Dec 2015 14:34:14 -0800
Cleveland Browns PK Travis Coons (groin) is likely to play Sunday, Dec. 20, and the team won't make a roster move for insurance. QB Austin Davis is the emergency backup kicker.
Fantasy Tip: Coons isn't a good kicking option against the Seattle Seahawks this week.
Sun, 06 Dec 2015 14:58:52 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis accounted for 231 yards in his first start Sunday, Dec. 6, as the Browns lost to the Cincinnati Bengals 37-3.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is starting mainly because the team doesn't want to give the reins over to Johnny Manziel. The Browns likely won't give Manziel the ball just yet, and this was a rough first team for Davis to face. Monitor his status for Week 14.
Wed, 02 Dec 2015 21:45:41 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could still start again at some point down the stretch this season despite the announcement Wednesday, Dec. 2, that QB Austin Davis would start in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals. "The decision was made, it's Austin for this week and I'm not going to go beyond that," head coach Mike Pettine said.
Fantasy Tip: Whether it is Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) or Manziel ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) starting, neither is particularly from a FantasyScore perspective.
Wed, 02 Dec 2015 08:11:31 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will start Sunday, Dec. 6, against the Cincinnati Bengals. QB Johnny Manziel will serve as the backup.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't much of an option on FantasyScore this week.
Tue, 01 Dec 2015 08:58:39 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (clavicle) was in a sling after the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Nov. 30, and he will have more tests Tuesday, Dec. 1, after undergoing X-rays after the game. Head coach Mike Pettine didn't say whether QBs Austin Davis or Johnny Manziel would start next week if McCown can't play. Manziel did not play against the Ravens after McCown was injured.
Fantasy Tip: Either way you slice it, none of the Cleveland quarterbacks are attractive against the Cincinnati Bengals and their stout defense in Week 13, and you might want to downgrade the rest of Cleveland's offensive weapons depending on who winds up getting the start.
Mon, 30 Nov 2015 21:50:44 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis came on in relief in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Nov. 30, for the injured QB Josh McCown (collarbone) and in place of the punished QB Johnny Manziel. Davis completed seven of his 10 passes for 77 yards and a 42-yard touchdown to WR Travis Benjamin.
Fantasy Tip: Davis played well in relief and he could potentially start in Week 13 if the team continues to punish Manziel and McCown is unable to play.
Mon, 30 Nov 2015 20:08:29 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) left the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth quarter due to an apparent shoulder injury. QB Austin Davis checked in with QB Johnny Manziel dressed as the third-string quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: McCown was injured a drive or two ago on a hard him after a pass, but tried to gut it out and finish. It's unlikely he will be able to return.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 12:54:45 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will start in Week 12. QB Austin Davis will serve as backup, while QB Johnny Manziel will be Cleveland's No. 3 quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: A video recently surfaced showing Manziel partying, which very well may have played a role in Manziel's demotion. McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was playing well before being sidelined by injuries this season. He may be rusty, but he's worth consideration on FantasyScore against a vulnerable Baltimore Ravens defense.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 09:14:18 -0800
Confirming a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will be the starting quarterback for Week 10's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. QB Austin Davis will serve as the backup, with QB Josh McCown (ribs) inactive.
Fantasy Tip: Although Pittsburgh's pass defense has been mediocre at best this year, Manziel ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore and all other fantasy formats due to his inconsistency.
Sun, 01 Nov 2015 08:43:28 -0800
The Cleveland Browns have declared WR Andrew Hawkins, QB Austin Davis, CB Don Jones, TE Emmanuel Bibbs, LB Jayson DiManche, CB Jordan Poyer, TE Rob Housler inactive for Week 8.
Sun, 25 Oct 2015 08:50:09 -0700
The Cleveland Browns have declared QB Austin Davis, LB Craig Robertson, WR Dwayne Bowe, TE Emmanuel Bibbs, CB Joe Haden, TE Rob Housler, FS Tashaun Gipson inactive for Week 7.
Sun, 18 Oct 2015 09:01:43 -0700

The Cleveland Browns have declared QB Austin Davis, DL Desmond Bryant, WR Dwayne Bowe, TE Emmanuel Bibbs, DB K'Waun Williams, RB Robert Turbin, LB Scott Solomon inactive for Week 3.
Wed, 16 Sep 2015 11:33:58 -0700
Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will receive some repetitions with the first-team offense this week with QB Josh McCown (concussion) still in the concussion protocol. The Browns are preparing as if QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will start against the Tennessee Titans. Manziel is resting his elbow in portions of practice.
Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Manziel ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) starting in Week 2 against the Titans, so the Browns are just doing their due diligence with Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap). Manziel continues to have his ups and downs and shouldn't be trusted as a FantasyScore sleeper QB, especially since he's not even fully healthy.
Sun, 13 Sep 2015 08:28:51 -0700
The Cleveland Browns have declared QB Austin Davis, WR Dwayne Bowe, TE Emmanuel Bibbs, CB Justin Gilbert, LB Nate Orchard, RB Robert Turbin, DT Xavier Cooper inactive for Week 1.
Mon, 07 Sep 2015 10:19:42 -0700

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 19:15:37 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis was released Saturday, Sept 5.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 16:16:33 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis is not expected to make the final roster since it looks like he has lost the backup quarterback competition to QB Case Keenum.
Fri, 07 Aug 2015 19:30:35 -0700
St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead received some reps with the first-team offense in practice Friday, Aug. 7, and he caught a touchdown pass from QB Austin Davis while working with the second-team during red-zone drills.
Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:38:38 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis is projected to be cut, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com.
Mon, 22 Jun 2015 15:18:03 -0700
St. Louis Rams QBs Case Keenum and Austin Davis are expected to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:23:16 -0700
St. Louis Rams OG Brandon Washington signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, April 20. Restricted free-agents QB Austin Davis, TE Cory Harkey and S Rodney McLeod were also re-signed.
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:14:28 -0700
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said it's the team's intention to draft a quarterback in this year's draft, despite trading for QB Nick Foles in the offseason. Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are expected to be off the board when the Rams pick with the 10th overall pick in the first round, but the Rams could also trade up to take one of them. The Rams could also look at the second tier of quarterbacks in this class, which includes Baylor QB Bryce Petty, California-Los Angeles QB Brett Hundley, Oregon QB Sean Mannion and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. Petty indicated that he has a visit planned with St. Louis. Rams QBs Austin Davis and Case Keenum will compete for the backup job, and the loser might be on the street if the Rams draft another quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: Foles upgrades the Rams offense, but unless St. Louis adds some more playmakers around him, he won't be anything more than a boring QB2 for fantasy purposes. It's highly unlikely that the quarterback the Rams draft takes over the starting job from Foles in 2015.
Fri, 06 Mar 2015 19:27:13 -0800
St. Louis Rams restricted free-agent QB Austin Davis received a tender offer at the minimum level Friday, March 6. The Rams get matching rights, but no compensation if Davis signs elsewhere.
Fantasy Tip: Davis was forced into a starting role last season and he fared OK at times, but he is not expected to be a fantasy option going into 2015. He will likely be nailed to the bench as a No. 2 or 3 signal caller.
Wed, 12 Nov 2014 07:59:01 -0800
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis has been benched, and QB Shaun Hill will start in Week 11 Sunday, Nov. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Hill ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is only worth consideration on FantasyScore if you're looking to load up at other positions.
Mon, 10 Nov 2014 15:33:31 -0800
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Fantasy Tip: Davis has thrown five interceptions to only three touchdowns in his last three games and has thrown for at least 200 yards in only one of those games. Davis probably should not be a starting option in any league in Week 11.
Sun, 02 Nov 2014 13:20:44 -0800
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis (knee) left the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers in the first quarter after an awkward slide knocked his knee brace askew.
Fantasy Tip: Davis left for a play or two, had his brace adjusted on the sidelines, and he was able to return to the game.
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:13:36 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis was 18-for-21 for 152 yards in the team's Week 7 win over the Seattle Seahawks, and former QB Brett Favre thinks Davis could be special in the league. "Not to sound off my rocker, but (Davis) -- in my mind -- can be the next Tom Brady or Kurt Warner. (Brian) Hoyer as well," Favre said. Davis' 86 percent completion rate against the Seahawks was the highest accuracy mark against a defending Super Bowl champion (minimum of 20 passes). It was also the second highest completion percentage against the Seahawks.
Fantasy Tip: Davis continues to fly under the radar, even at FantasyScore, where he'll cost $6,000 (12.0% of cap) against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8. However, the Chiefs have performed well against the pass this season, making Davis an unpopular selection for your lineups.
Mon, 13 Oct 2014 18:50:44 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis completed 11 of his 14 pass attempts for 137 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the first half of the Week 6 game against the San Francisco 49ers. His scoring strike went for 22 yards to TE Lance Kendricks.
Sun, 05 Oct 2014 17:59:30 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis completed 29 of his 49 pass attempts for 375 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. It was his first start since being named as the starter for the rest of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Davis was a fantastic option for FantasyScore owners at a very low price in this one. Remember him going forward when the matchup is favorable.
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 12:44:36 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis has been named the team's starting quarterback moving forward.
Fantasy Tip: Davis has done a decent job replacing Sam Bradford and will try to improve his play moving forward. Davis costs $4,700 on FantasyScore this week, but owners would spend a little more money on a better option. Davis likely will not be a starting option most weeks.
Sun, 21 Sep 2014 10:04:00 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis was the starting quarterback for the team's Week 3 game.
Fantasy Tip: Davis is starting while Shaun Hill recovers from his injury. Neither quarterback should be fantasy options most weeks.
Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:12:36 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis is likely to start Sunday, Sept. 21, against the Dallas Cowboys. QB Shaun Hill (thigh) is likely out.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,200; 8.4% of your cap) is a bare-minimum option on FantasyScore this week. He has a good matchup against Dallas' porous secondary. You can start him if you want to load up on other positions.
Fri, 19 Sep 2014 06:39:54 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will be a game-time decision in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: Hill and Austin Davis aren't worthy of consideration for starting lineups in most leagues.
Thu, 18 Sep 2014 17:17:21 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis or QB Shaun Hill (thigh) could come down to a game-time decision in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend starting either Rams quarterback at FantasyScore, even though they're both cheap - Davis ($4,200) and Hill ($4,700) - and going against a weak Dallas Cowboys defense.
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 23:43:28 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will return to the starting role when healthy, according to Rams coach Jeff Fisher. QB Austin Davis has filled in for the past two weeks.
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 16:42:51 -0700
St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis completed 22 of his 29 pass attempts for 235 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is the first Rams QB to win his first career start since Scott Covington Dec. 30, 2002.
