Browns | Johnny Manziel done for the year

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 13:06:29 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is out for the rest of the year due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: With Manziel out and Brian Hoyer nursing an injury to his throwing shoulder, Connor Shaw could be in line to make the first start of his career this week. Hoyer and Shaw should still be avoided in lineups, however.

Browns | Johnny Manziel questionable for Week 17

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 09:09:57 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens after hurting his hamstring in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is 18-for-35 for 143 yards, a rushing touchdown and two interceptions in his two starts this year.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel won't be a smart choice for FantasyScore lineups even if he plays against the Ravens. If Brian Hoyer starts in his place, he'll be a cheap alternative at the QB spot, but his limited upside makes him unattractive, as well.

Browns | Cleveland open to QB upgrade

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 00:20:42 -0800

The Cleveland Browns may look to upgrade the quarterback position in the offseason despite the presence of QB Johnny Manziel. League sources have said Browns general manger Ray Farmer has long been fascinated by Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, who is widely expected to be a top-five pick in the 2015 draft. Cleveland owns the 14th and 19th picks in the first round.

Browns | Johnny Manziel has hamstring injury

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 11:28:31 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) left the team's Week 16 game early because of a hamstring injury and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Manziel's injury is not known, so owners should monitor the situation. Brian Hoyer likely will take over as the starter while Manziel is out but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Browns | OC still has confidence in Johnny Manziel

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 10:52:17 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel remains an explosive playmaker, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn't giving up on the young quarterback after a rough outing in his first career start last week. "I feel the same about Johnny as I always have," Shanahan said. "Johnny is a playmaker. He's done that throughout his career. Nobody can argue with that at all. There were a couple times in that game he did make some plays. We weren't able to capitalize on it." However, Shanahan acknowledged that success for Manziel won't come immediately. The Browns also know that Manziel's three starts to end the season won't be enough data to know for sure if he's their QB of the future.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel will cost you $3,900 at FantasyScore this week. While he may put up better numbers than his atrocious first start, it may only be a marginal improvement. The Carolina Panthers can be beat, but it remains to be seen if Manziel has what it takes at the NFL level. It's smart to stay away in daily leagues.

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.
