Browns | Johnny Manziel shows up early

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:10:36 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel arrived more than five hours early to practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, after struggling in his first NFL start in Week 15. Manziel was 10-for-18 for 80 yards and two interceptions against the Cincinnati Bengals last week.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel ($3,900) remains cheap at FantasyScore, but following his disaster last week, it's hard to put too much trust in the young quarterback as he takes his lumps in the NFL. The Carolina Panthers defense has been a good matchup for most teams all year, but it won't make starting Manziel in daily games much more appealing this week.

Browns | Johnny Manziel prevented from scrambling left

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 13:42:21 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was held to just 107 yards of total offense in the Week 15 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Bengals defensive coordinator watched game tape of Manziel's two college losses to Louisiana State and Missouri in order to game plan for him. "Those were his worst two games in college," Guenther said. "You could see obviously what their plan was -- to keep him in the pocket or to move him to a side where he wasn't throwing." The Bengals prevented Manziel from going to his left.

Fantasy Tip: Will this be something the Carolina Panthers defense looks to do in Week 16? It could be, but it's hard to envision Manziel regressing from his performance in his first start. He remains a risky option at FantasyScore, but his floor should be more palatable against the Panthers.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to start Week 16

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 14:08:11 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will start in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers, head coach Mike Pettine confirmed Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Sunday's disaster, the team committed to Manziel after benching Brian Hoyer after last week's game, so there is no turning back now. FantasyScore owners will not want to make the same mistake and should avoid using him.

Browns | Johnny Manziel does nothing

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 14:05:32 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel completed 10 of his 18 pass attempts for just 80 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 15 shutout loss against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was also sacked three times and ended up with a passer rating of just 27.3.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel was a complete disaster for anyone who risked using him in the fantasy playoffs in seasonal leagues or were tempted by his low salary in FantasyScore. Perhaps this is why the Browns waited so long to give him his chance.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to start in Week 15

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 09:41:28 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be the starting quarterback in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel clearly has much more upside than Brian Hoyer. Manziel is an exciting but risky fantasy football play in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals, who have done a good job in limiting opposing quarterbacks all season, despite a hiccup against the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend. He'll be on the cheap side at FantasyScore, but it'll come with plenty of risk as your signal caller.

Browns | Johnny Manziel likely to start

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 05:45:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is likely to start in Week 15, according to indications from sources. All that remains is waiting for head coach Mike Pettine to announce it.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel ($4,300; 8.6% of your cap) would be an intriguing play against the Cincinnati Bengals on FantasyScore. There are a lot more proven options to use, though.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to start soon?

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 14:51:05 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could be taking over as starting quarterback in the near future. "I think it's natural to lean the other way, given the results," head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, Dec. 8. Pettine said he, the coaches and general manager Ray Farmer would meet Monday night and make a decision.

Fantasy Tip: If Manziel were to start, he'd have more fantasy value than Hoyer because of his running ability. However, Manziel is still a rookie and has only thrown nine passes this year. The training wheels are still on and starting him against one of the league's better pass defenses in the Cincinnati Bengals may not be a wise choice.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could start final three games

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 09:23:21 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could start the team's final three games if the team were to lose in Week 14 with QB Brian Hoyer as the starter, according to a source. Manziel was 5-for-8 for 63 yards and a 10-yard touchdown scamper when he relieved Hoyer in Week 13. Hoyer has one touchdown and six interceptions in his last 15 quarters.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has much more fantasy football upside than Hoyer, but those at FantasyScore will have to wait at least another week before considering Johnny Football. Hoyer ($4,100) isn't a very attractive option for daily lineups against the Indianapolis Colts, especially since there's a chance Manziel could relieve him again if he struggles.

Browns | Brian Hoyer to remain starter

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 08:36:19 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will start instead of QB Johnny Manziel in the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has a nice FantasyScore price of $4,100 this week, but there are probably better options available to you by spending just a bit more at the position.

Browns | Starting QB still uncertain for Browns

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 13:36:30 -0800

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said he's not ready to make a decision on QBs Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer as the team's starting quarterback going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel would provide more upside with his ability to run and could be worth a start if reasonably priced on FantasyScore. Hoyer is probably worth staying away from at this point, however.
