Browns | Johnny Manziel facing criminal investigation

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 16:14:56 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend issued an affidavit that said Manziel hit her so hard during a late-night confrontation that she lost hearing in one ear. Colleen Crowley suffered a ruptured eardrum, which is expected to heal eventually. She is seeking to obtain a protective order against Manziel. Manziel is currently under criminal investigation on allegations of domestic violence.

"Fearful for my life, I hit (Manziel) several times, hoping I could back out of the car," she said in the affidavit, adding Manziel "threw me off of him and I hit my head on the car window and I fell into the passenger floorboard."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel's career is wobbly right now, at best. The Browns are expected to release him in March, and no teams are likely to be willing to take a chance on him amid this controversy and a possible suspension from the league. Manziel doesn't have any fantasy value at the moment.

Browns | Cleveland unable to reach Johnny Manziel

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:45:38 -0800

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has been unable to reach QB Johnny Manziel in the wake of his off-field incident last weekend in which his ex-girlfriend claimed that he hit her several times and appeared to be on drugs. "We're not worried about Johnny Manziel the football player, we're worried about Johnny Manziel the person, and I think that's all we need to say on the issue," Haslam said. Haslam "appeared frustrated" and "emotional." Manziel will not face charges for the incident.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns are fully prepared to release Manziel next month amid his off-field problems, and given the latest development last weekend with his ex-girlfriend, not many NFL teams are likely to want to take a chance on him. There's a chance Manziel never plays in the NFL again. His fantasy value takes a back seat to his personal health and well-being.

Browns | Johnny Manziel's family worried

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:28:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's father, Paul Manziel, said Johnny has twice declined to be admitted to area rehabilitation facilities in the last week. Paul Manziel said he's worried about his son's well being. "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday," Manziel said.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has no fantasy value right now as he clearly has things to address before worrying about his football career.

Browns | Johnny Manziel won't be charged

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 17:02:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will not be charged for an incident involving his ex-girlfriend last weekend. The investigation is closed.

Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat of a mysterious result considering the alleged account detailed by Manziel's ex-girlfriend earlier, but it's good news for Manziel, for now. He's likely still facing a release by the Browns in early March, though, so continue to keep him off your fantasy radar.

Browns | Plot thickens for Johnny Manziel

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 15:43:26 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel allegedly struck his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, several times Saturday, Jan. 30. Crowley said she believed Manziel may have been on drugs or having a psychotic breakdown at the time of the incident.

Fantasy Tip: Much has been made of Manziel's off-field antics throughout his young career. This latest episode may be the nail in the coffin for Manziel's future in Cleveland, and possibly his future in the NFL. You can disregard him for the foreseeable future.

Browns | Trades for Johnny Manziel unlikely

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 14:02:34 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be cut March 9, according to a source, as reported earlier. The Browns will entertain any late-round trade offers for Manziel, but they don't expect that to transpire, especially after Manziel's off-field antics.

Fantasy Tip: It shouldn't be a big surprise if nobody courts Manziel prior to his inevitable release. He's just too big of a risky right now, and he probably wouldn't even start if someone did sign him. Keep him on your league's waivers.

Cowboys | Dallas unlikely to sign Johnny Manziel

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 13:43:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is unlikely to sign with the Dallas Cowboys if he is released by the Browns, according to ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer. Archer said the Cowboys need a reliable backup quarterback, and that it's hard to imagine Dallas signing Manziel for such a need.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have been the team most heavily rumored to possibly sign Manziel if/when the Browns let him go. Manziel's off-field problems could be a big hindrance in him signing with another team. Again, as of now, he has not fantasy value.

Browns | Teams interested in Johnny Manziel

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:21:39 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel said three teams have shown interest in him: the Los Angeles Rams, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams were interested in Manziel during the NFL Draft and the Chiefs apparently have no interest in him now. Manziel and the Cowboys have been rumored for a while, and Dallas may be Manziel's best bet if he is indeed released by the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel probably won't start if he is released and subsequently signed, which would give him no fantasy value. He would likely wait in the wings for his chance to start, but he won't be on the fantasy radar any time soon.

Browns | Johnny Manziel likely gone in March

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 09:44:27 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be released after the new league year begins March 9, according to a source. Releasing Manziel this month would count $4.6 million against the salary cap. The Browns released a statement from new director of football operations Sashi Brown Tuesday, Feb. 2, that expressed disappointment in Manziel for his latest off-field incident, but stopped short of saying his run in Cleveland is over.
"We've been clear about expectations for our players on and off the field. Johnny's continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization," he said. "His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has no fantasy value right now, but he'll likely latch on with another team. If he has a chance to earn a starting job, he's worth watching in fantasy.
