Browns | Josh McCown the favorite to start for Browns

Tue, 05 May 2015 09:18:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is the favorite to start training camp as the team's starting quarterback, with head coach Mike Pettine saying "it's fair to say." QB Johnny Manziel struggled last year as a rookie and was in rehab for 10 weeks. McCown is the most experienced quarterback the team has on roster.

Fantasy Tip: McCown will still face competition from Manziel and the other quarterbacks on roster later this summer, but McCown will have the leg up. With a mediocre receiving corps and largely unproven backfield, McCown, if he winds up winning the job, is a lackluster QB2 option for fantasy owners.

Browns | Johnny Manziel in second spot

Mon, 04 May 2015 20:12:39 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is expected to open training camp as the No. 2 quarterback, as head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, May 4, "I think it's fair to say" that QB Josh McCown will open camp atop the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has plenty of time to get things in order and make a run for the starting job. Whoever comes away as the winner of the starting job is still nothing more than a QB2 in standard fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Browns | QB still an issue in Cleveland?

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:42:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine doesn't seem overly concerned with the Browns' current state at quarterback. Pettine said the quarterback position isn't the only position that wins football games. QBs Josh McCown, Johnny Manziel, Thaddeus Lewis and Connor Shaw are currently on Cleveland's roster.

Fantasy Tip: Pettine could very well start McCown or one of the other current quarterbacks for Week 1. The Browns seem to catching some flak for not drafting a quarterback, but Pettine doesn't seem phased by it. Whoever starts will be a fantasy backup.

Browns | Johnny Manziel committed in camp

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 17:35:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's commitment is "night and day" from last year, according to Browns OT Joe Thomas, Tuesday, April 28. Manziel has been participating in the Browns' voluntary offseason workout program since it began April 20. "This year on a Saturday if you came in the building, you'd see him studying his playbook and watching film with his coach. It's pretty apparent he's realized how important football is to him, and he's realized that in the NFL you can't get away with maybe some of the things that you did in college because it's a big boys' game now," said Thomas.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel will also have to regain the trust of fantasy owners. With Josh McCown as competition for the Browns' starting job, Manziel currently holds zero fantasy value. Even if Manziel wins the starter's job, he'll only be a late-round option in two-quarterback leagues.

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:42:09 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel reported for the first day of voluntary workouts Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel likely will be given the chance to compete for the starting quarterback job during workouts and training camp. Owners should consider Manziel a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is the starter.
