Browns | Cleveland on fifth QB in five games

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 17:31:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will be the fifth starting quarterback in as many games for the Browns. Going back to the last two weeks of last season, the Browns have started former QBs Johnny Manziel and Austin Davis and QBs Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Josh McCown (shoulder) and now Kessler. Cleveland is the second team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to start five different quarterbacks in five straight games, according to Elias.

Fantasy Tip: This is just further proof that the Browns' quarterback position cannot be trusted. The lack of consistency will be a damper to Josh Gordon's fantasy value when he does return, and it hurts the rest of the team, too. Corey Coleman, Gary Barnidge, Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson are still startable, but they're unlikely to reach their ceiling with an unproven rookie quarterback at the helm.

NFL | Johnny Manziel says 'he'll be back'

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 09:20:50 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel told his fans on social media that he will "be back." Manziel told The Washington Post last weekend that he's "actually doing well." "I have good friends around me supporting what I do and I try to support them in what they want to do. I'm not saying I'm never drinking again, but for now just mostly being healthy. I've got a killer gym in my house and I can spend time working out. I'm interested in doing a lot of different things in my life -- including football -- but, right now, I'm just exploring options and waiting to see what the future holds."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel will serve a four-game suspension if a team takes a shot on him and could face further suspension. His off-field antics have likely turned all prospective teams off, meaning it's highly unlikely Manziel ever makes noise in the NFL again. He should be completely off the fantasy radar for now.

NFL | AFL an option for Johnny Manziel?

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 09:57:38 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) is drawing interest from the Arena Football League. "We could provide a strong platform for him to demonstrate that he is back," AFL commissioner Scott Butera said. "We would also work with him and provide him whatever help he needed to live a healthy life."

Fantasy Tip: A four-game suspension in the NFL only increases the chances that Manziel won't be given another shot. That means the AFL might be his best chance to demonstrate that he is cleaning up his act off the field. Either way, Manziel has zero fantasy appeal heading into the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has been dealing with multiple off-field issues this offseason and should be ignored by fantasy owners until he signs with a team.

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 10:00:00 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) was suspended four games by the NFL Thursday, June 30, for substance abuse, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has little hope of being signed by a team for 2016 to even begin serving his suspension. He has no fantasy value at this point.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to go sober?

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:39:07 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) has made it a goal to go sober starting Friday, July 1, and commence training for an NFL return.

Fantasy Tip: The goal is all well and good, but accomplishing such a goal after such a tumultuous off-field career is another concept. Don't expect Manziel to rejoin the NFL any time soon.

Wed, 04 May 2016 15:32:05 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Manziel won't be courted by any NFL teams any time soon and should be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.

NFL | Johnny Manziel pleading not guilty

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 09:59:03 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) will plead not guilty after he was indicted by a Texas grand jury Tuesday, April 26, on an assault charge after his ex-girlfriend accused Manziel of domestic violence. The Class A misdemeanor carries up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel faces an uphill battle to land with another team in time for the 2016 season. He should carry zero fantasy value in drafts this fall, even if he's picked up by a club.
