Browns | Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer not the answer?

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:37:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer may not be the team's answer at quarterback, according to NFL Media's Charley Casserly. Casserly said the Browns' answer at the position is more likely to be found in one of its two first-round picks next season.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously this is subjective speculation. We'll have to see what transpires during the season. Manziel and Hoyer remain unreliable fantasy options at this point, though, Manziel does have more potential.

Browns | Brian Hoyer faring better than Johnny Manziel

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:18:45 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) is outperforming rookie QB Johnny Manziel so far in camp, and the starting quarterback job has been Hoyer's job to lose, as observed by Jason La Canfora. Hoyer looks crisper with his mental speed, including actions in the huddle, at the line and during plays. Hoyer is not gun-shy as his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament continues "to wow the Browns," according to La Canfora. Manziel also has acted somewhat guarded around his new teammates.

Fantasy Tip: Neither will be a desirable fantasy starting option if Cleveland can't make up for the likely loss of Josh Gordon, possibly for the season. Hoyer's performance in 2013 gives him the initial edge unless Manziel turns things around in a drastic way. That being said, Hoyer is nothing more than a desperation QB2 and, ideally, a third you can tuck away in a deep game.

Browns | Alarmed with Johnny Manziel's behavior?

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:41:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's off-the-field behavior reportedly has alarmed members of Cleveland's brass. Photos of Manziel rolling a $20 bill in a bathroom of a bar caught the attention of head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel regressed in practice after the first week of organized team activities, leading Pettine to call out Manziel's dedication to learning the offense.

Browns | Johnny Manziel needs more dedication

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:14:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine thinks QB Johnny Manziel needs to increase dedication to earn the starting job. "I think he knows that in order to compete well, he's going to have to probably be more dedicated than ever."

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer is believed to have the leg up in the competition for the starting signal caller job in Cleveland, but it is a wide open competition, too. If Manziel can win the job during training camp and the preseason, he would still be best used as a QB2 only for when your primary fantasy option has a difficult matchup or bye. The loss of WR Josh Gordon for an undetermined period hurts the value of whomever wins the job.

Browns | Starting QB will be named in preseason

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:06:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer will know who is starting before the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike Pettine, though it could happen sooner. Pettine has expressed hesitation to name Manziel the starter immediately and thinks Hoyer's chances are underrated.

Fantasy Tip: It depends heavily on how Hoyer responds during his knee recovery. This could be a battle to watch during the season. Manziel is nothing more than a low-end QB2 and ideally ranks as a third slinger for 2014 fantasy football drafts. Hoyer could be a sneaky QB3 in such leagues that require that depth.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:05:22 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel talked with head coach Mike Pettine, who expressed concerns about Manziel's off-field behavior. Pettine said it was a "positive conversation" and that he doesn't feel as if Manziel's purported party activities will be a problem once the NFL season starts.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully, the Manziel news starts to trend toward the quarterback battle he'll have with Brian Hoyer.

Browns | Brian Hoyer fully cleared

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 10:46:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) said he's been fully cleared to participate in training camp, confirming Hoyer's belief that he wouldn't be limited.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer played well before tearing his ACL last year, but it's unclear whether Hoyer or QB Johnny Manziel will start the season opener. Manziel has more potential while Hoyer has the experience. Neither one of them is a reliable fantasy quarterback at this point, but we'd draft Manziel before Hoyer.
