Browns | Teammates defend Johnny Manziel

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 10:05:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel had teammates come to his defense after an unidentified player called Manziel a "100 percent joke" last week. "It's not true at all that Johnny's teammates think he's a 100 percent joke," CB Joe Haden said. "There's a lot of players on the team that do [love Manziel]."

Fantasy Tip: Looking ahead, Manziel has a lot of work ahead of him going into the offseason and training camp. At best, he should be considered a risky backup quarterback option in 2015.

Browns | Browns owner not sold on Johnny Manziel

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 10:09:37 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel had a big proponent last year in owner Jimmy Haslam, but Haslam now thinks the team needs a quarterback in order to get their team turned in the right direction. "We've got to get a quarterback and got to get it fixed," Haslam said. "What I would say to our fans is, we're going to continue to work really hard to find that quarterback who can make us a championship team." Haslam isn't ruling out Manziel being the starting quarterback in 2015, but he's leaving it open for other options, including QBs Brian Hoyer or Connor Shaw.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Manziel didn't have much time to prove himself at the tail end of last season, it apparently was enough to convince the team that they'll have an open competition at the position in training camp this year. Manziel will likely head into fantasy football draft season as a giant risk as a backup QB.

Browns | Browns not sure who QB is

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 11:38:23 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be working with a new offensive coordinator this year in John DeFilippo, but DeFilippo is unsure if the team's quarterback next year is currently on the roster. "We're not sure if our starting quarterback's in the building right now or not," DeFilippo said. "If he is, that's great. If he's not, that's great, too. Whoever's in that room is going to be coached hard, be held accountable and be expected to do the things that we expect out of Cleveland Browns quarterbacks." DeFilippo said that all Cleveland quarterbacks will begin the offseason with a clean slate.

Fantasy Tip: DeFilippo has been praised as a very bright young mind to mold quarterbacks, but he has limited experience and is moving to a new team. Combine that with the very raw skills we saw in Manziel's limited action last year, and you have to be very uneasy about Manziel's fantasy prospects in just his second year, assuming he even wins the starting QB job in training camp.

Browns | New OC good for Johnny Manziel?

Wed, 21 Jan 2015 13:38:49 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could benefit from new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, according to Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr. Carr said DeFilippo will do great with Manziel, adding that DeFilippo has worked with a running quarterback before in Kansas City Chiefs QB Terrelle Pryor.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Manziel will even start for the Browns in 2015, but the DeFilippo hiring bodes well. At this point, however, it's best to tread lightly with Manziel.

Browns | Johnny Manziel not at practice

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 12:19:40 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) was not present at practice Saturday, Dec. 27. Manziel reportedly still traveled with the team and was not required to attend the walkthrough since he is on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel and Brian Hoyer will cede the starting spot to rookie Connor Shaw for the final game of the regular season. Shaw, however, is not worth rostering on FantasyScore.

Browns | Johnny Manziel not out of team's plans

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:21:00 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel isn't out of the team's plans for next season after playing only around seven quarters of football in his rookie season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "He's a player on our roster," Pettine said. "He'll have the chance to compete." Manziel said this week that he pressed too hard as a starter, and he plans to have a much more productive offseason heading into his second year.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is out for Week 17, so don't think about using him at FantasyScore. It's not wise to use Connor Shaw ($5,555) against the Baltimore Ravens, either. For next season, Manziel won't be guaranteed a starting job heading into training camp, so he probably won't be worth a selection late in drafts as a backup in standard leagues.

Browns | Johnny Manziel placed on IR

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 08:41:48 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: With Manziel done for the year, and Brian Hoyer hurt, the team could turn to Connor Shaw for Week 17. He should not be considered in FantasyScore contests.

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.
