Browns | Too soon to write off Johnny Manziel?

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:42:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel just "needs more time" to develop and learn how to play from the pocket in order to become an effective NFL quarterback, according to Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.

Fantasy Tip: While Guenther may by right, Manziel isn't likely to have a chance to gain much in-game experience in 2015, at least to start the year. Outside of a late-round stash in dynasty formats, Manziel can be left on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Former QB praises Johnny Manziel

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 18:28:01 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is trending in the right direction, former QB Elvis Grbac said. "It's obviously a learning experience," Grbac said. "I think he's going in the right direction. He's on the right path. I think it'll be somewhat of a rude awakening the first couple games of the season and he will have to adjust."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is expected to open the year as Josh McCown's backup, and although he may see some playing time as the year goes on, he is at least a year away from having any kind of fantasy value.

Browns | Johnny Manziel struggling with accuracy

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 10:25:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel continues to struggle with throwing accuracy, but he showed improvement in little things, such as getting the plays called and off on time.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel appears to have very little chance at overtaking Josh McCown as the starter before the season. He still has some dynasty league value, but he has very little single-year league value.

Browns | Johnny Manziel living with former coach

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:26:50 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is living in the Cleveland area with former high school coach Julius Scott since Scott had a big influence in Manziel earlier in his career. Scott was considered the disciplinarian on Manziel's high school team, and Manziel said Scott made the biggest impact on his development as a player.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has had a busy offseason off the field but likely will enter training camp as the No. 2 quarterback and may not be given the chance to compete for the starting job. Owners should avoid Manziel until he becomes a starter.

Browns | Johnny Manziel not being ruled out

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 18:17:55 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is not being counted out by quarterbacks coach Kevin O'Connell. When asked if there's a chance Manziel can beat out QB Josh McCown, O'Connell replied, "Yeah, I think right now coach (Mike) Pettine's been very clear that Josh is here for a reason, but we build everything around here on competition and that's how everybody gets better. And that's why it's important that this spring that we've been able to install our offense and give these guys the tools they need come the fall that we can have a competitive environment," O'Connell said Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is still facing an uphill climb in his quest for the starter's job, but it's certainly interesting to finally hear something positive from a member of the coaching staff. Manziel's fantasy prospects will continue to rise until someone else is officially named the starter.

Browns | Johnny Manziel involved in fan incident

Sun, 31 May 2015 23:39:15 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was involved in an altercation with a fan on Saturday, May 30, at a PGA event. Manziel reportedly threw a water bottle at a fan who had been harassing him for an autograph.

Fantasy Tip: According to ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler, it appears the fan was in the wrong here as he was constantly harassing and grabbing at Manziel. The embattled Browns QB needs to rid himself of stuff like this if he is to become a truly good player in the league.

Browns | Johnny Manziel impressing OC

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:20:20 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has impressed Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo since Manziel has returned from a stint in a treatment center. Cleveland's new play-caller said Manziel is spending every hour that he is allowed to spend in the building and is putting himself into a position to be an NFL quarterback. DeFilippo said he wouldn't sacrifice Manziel's athleticism to pigeonhole him into a scheme that doesn't fit his skill set.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has to beat out Josh McCown for the starting gig in Cleveland, but it is encouraging to see DeFilippo praising his work ethic. A lot has to change between now and Week 1, but Manziel has enough upside to warrant a QB2 roster spot if he finally looks the part of pro passer in the preseason.

Browns | Johnny Manziel a full-go in OTAs

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:20:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will fully participate in organized team activities starting Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel needs to win the starting job, distance himself from the competition, and earn the trust of fantasy owners before deserving a draft selection this summer. He's a shaky QB2 draft target in the an optimistic scenario.

Browns | Johnny Manziel intends to start

Sat, 16 May 2015 16:37:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel intends to be the team's 2015 starter, according to teammate CB Joe Haden. "He's a competitor. I think it's all about competition. We have Josh McCown. We have Johnny. We have (Connor) Shaw. All those guys. Just all of them feel like they can win the starting job," said Haden.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Manziel beats the odds and is named the Browns' starting quarterback out of training camp, the reality of Josh Gordon's suspension and Jordan Cameron's free-agent departure will limit Manziel's fantasy potential. Manziel will likely open the season as nothing more than a late-round flier in two-quarterback leagues.

Browns | Coach not on board with Johnny Manziel

Fri, 15 May 2015 08:57:51 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has turned off head coach Mike Pettine, while general manager Ray Farmer, owner Jimmy Haslam and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo believe Manziel can be salvaged, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Pettine has installed Josh McCown as the starter entering training camp, and Manziel will have to earn the spot back. McCown obviously isn't the answer at 35, so the potential for Manziel is still there. At this rate, McCown is a low-end QB2, and Manziel shouldn't be drafted.
