Browns | Won't be on Hard Knocks

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:31:00 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said the team will not volunteer to be featured on the show "Hard Knocks" partly because QB Johnny Manziel doesn't need the increased scrutiny and attention. Manziel is currently in rehab, and the team expects him to be present for the start of offseason workouts April 20.

Browns | Johnny Manziel due back in April

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 05:46:15 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is expected back with the team for offseason workouts April 20 after completing more than two months of treatment.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel will have to beat out Josh McCown for the starting job in camp, and he's a low-end QB2 flyer in traditional drafts.

Browns | Cleveland not banking on Johnny Manziel

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:23:45 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel won't be counted on for the 2015 season, especially after the Browns offered a late first-round pick to try to acquire Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford. Cleveland could also select a quarterback in the first couple of rounds in this year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is still in rehab for personal issues, and the Browns recently signed Josh McCown to compete for the starting job in training camp. Cleveland would be wise not to count on Manziel being in the picture at this point. Heading into fall fantasy drafts, Manziel shouldn't be high on your radar as anything more than a very weak QB2.

Browns | Johnny Manziel still in rehab

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 19:31:25 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is still in inpatient rehab, but he is likely at the point where he can leave the facility for brief stints. Earlier reports said that he had left the facility.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen when Manziel will leave rehab, but when he does, he is expected to make a run at the starting quarterback job in Cleveland.

Browns | Johnny Manziel out of rehab?

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 18:19:47 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel left rehab Friday, March 13, after spending just over six weeks in the facility, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel should have a chance to win the starting job in Cleveland, and if he does open 2015 as the starter, his scrambling ability gives him the potential to be a mid-level No. 2 quarterback for fantasy owners.

Browns | Johnny Manziel still in rehab

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 15:29:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is still in rehab at this point, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Manziel will be ready to participate in offseason workouts, but he should be ready for training camp. Manziel likely will be given the chance to compete for the starting job during camp but would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

Browns | Johnny Manziel needs to focus on football

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 14:29:45 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel needs to have an obsession with football, according to offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. "It's truly a lifestyle to be an NFL quarterback," DeFilippo said. "It's not just a job. It's all-consuming. You need to sleep, eat, do everything fast and just think about football all the time."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has sparked plenty of controversy after just one season of professional football. While Manziel still isn't guaranteed to start next season, especially with QB Josh McCown recently signed, there are still some positive signs with the rehabilitation program he's going through and a new offensive coordinator in DeFilippo.

Browns | Josh McCown expects to start

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:44:47 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is expecting to start after signing a three-year, $14 million deal last week that includes $6.25 million in guarantees and $6 million in incentives. McCown went just 1-10 as the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year. McCown will compete with QBs Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw this summer.

Fantasy Tip: As of right now, McCown looks like the most likely candidate to start for the Browns, with Manziel in a treatment facility for personal issues. If McCown wins the job in training camp, though he shouldn't be considered anything more than a weak QB2 for fantasy owners.

Browns | Josh McCown to work with Johnny Manziel

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:18:25 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will work with QB Johnny Manziel to help him get used to the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is obviously not the long-term solution in Cleveland, but he provides a bit of stability. His vow to work with Manziel also means the Browns have some faith in their troubled quarterback. McCown is a backup QB in most fantasy leagues, while Manziel remains an intriguing project with little fantasy value at the moment.

Browns | Johnny Manziel progressing

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:41:27 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is making progress during his time at a rehabilitation facility and head coach Mike Pettine said the team is proud of the progress he's making.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel still has a tough hill to climb in order to win the starting quarterback job for the 2015 season. Impending free-agent Brian Hoyer's status is still unknown, however, while the team may also pursue free-agent QB Josh McCown. Nevertheless, Manziel is not worth consideration as a starter in seasonal or daily leagues.
