Browns | Cleveland on fifth QB in five games

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 17:31:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will be the fifth starting quarterback in as many games for the Browns. Going back to the last two weeks of last season, the Browns have started former QBs Johnny Manziel and Austin Davis and QBs Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Josh McCown (shoulder) and now Kessler. Cleveland is the second team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to start five different quarterbacks in five straight games, according to Elias.

Fantasy Tip: This is just further proof that the Browns' quarterback position cannot be trusted. The lack of consistency will be a damper to Josh Gordon's fantasy value when he does return, and it hurts the rest of the team, too. Corey Coleman, Gary Barnidge, Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson are still startable, but they're unlikely to reach their ceiling with an unproven rookie quarterback at the helm.

NFL | Johnny Manziel says 'he'll be back'

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 09:20:50 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel told his fans on social media that he will "be back." Manziel told The Washington Post last weekend that he's "actually doing well." "I have good friends around me supporting what I do and I try to support them in what they want to do. I'm not saying I'm never drinking again, but for now just mostly being healthy. I've got a killer gym in my house and I can spend time working out. I'm interested in doing a lot of different things in my life -- including football -- but, right now, I'm just exploring options and waiting to see what the future holds."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel will serve a four-game suspension if a team takes a shot on him and could face further suspension. His off-field antics have likely turned all prospective teams off, meaning it's highly unlikely Manziel ever makes noise in the NFL again. He should be completely off the fantasy radar for now.

NFL | AFL an option for Johnny Manziel?

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 09:57:38 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) is drawing interest from the Arena Football League. "We could provide a strong platform for him to demonstrate that he is back," AFL commissioner Scott Butera said. "We would also work with him and provide him whatever help he needed to live a healthy life."

Fantasy Tip: A four-game suspension in the NFL only increases the chances that Manziel won't be given another shot. That means the AFL might be his best chance to demonstrate that he is cleaning up his act off the field. Either way, Manziel has zero fantasy appeal heading into the 2016 season.

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) has been telling people privately that 2017 may be the best chance for him to play in the NFL again.

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 10:00:00 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) was suspended four games by the NFL Thursday, June 30, for substance abuse, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has little hope of being signed by a team for 2016 to even begin serving his suspension. He has no fantasy value at this point.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to go sober?

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:39:07 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) has made it a goal to go sober starting Friday, July 1, and commence training for an NFL return.

Fantasy Tip: The goal is all well and good, but accomplishing such a goal after such a tumultuous off-field career is another concept. Don't expect Manziel to rejoin the NFL any time soon.

Wed, 04 May 2016 15:32:05 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Manziel won't be courted by any NFL teams any time soon and should be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.

NFL | Johnny Manziel pleading not guilty

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 09:59:03 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) will plead not guilty after he was indicted by a Texas grand jury Tuesday, April 26, on an assault charge after his ex-girlfriend accused Manziel of domestic violence. The Class A misdemeanor carries up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel faces an uphill battle to land with another team in time for the 2016 season. He should carry zero fantasy value in drafts this fall, even if he's picked up by a club.

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 08:51:23 -0700

NFL | Johnny Manziel indicted by grand jury

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 04:57:47 -0700

Former Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has been indicted by a Dallas County Grand Jury on a misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge, according to sources in the Dallas County District Attorney office.

Fantasy Tip: This further decreases the likelihood Manziel will get to play meaningful games in 2016, especially with a pending criminal case. Depending on how this case goes, however, there is still a chance Manziel could land somewhere, but the negative PR alone could make it difficult.

NFL | Johnny Manziel hopes to play in 2016

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 19:30:17 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) said Tuesday, April 19, that he is still focusing on preparing to be in the National Football League in 2016. "I'm hoping to take care of the issues in front of me right now so I can focus on what I have to do if I want to play in 2016," Manziel said.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel was dropped by agent Drew Rosenhaus, and it is hard to see any organization taking a chance on the embattled quarterback right now. Should he be afforded another chance he is not expected to have much, if any, fantasy impact.

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 09:27:26 -0700

NFL | Agent has no faith in Johnny Manziel

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 18:26:23 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel's (Browns) agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he doesn't expect Manziel to seek the treatment necessary for Rosenhaus to continue to represent him.

Fantasy Tip: You know it's bad when a player's agent won't even offer support. Manziel is throwing away one chance after the next, and he is unlikely to have any fantasy value in 2016.

NFL | Johnny Manziel accused of property damage

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 09:34:51 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) is accused of hosting parties at a Los Angeles home earlier this month that caused extensive property damage, according to a letter from an attorney representing the owner of the property. ESPN obtained the letter Friday from attorney Niki Ghazian, who wrote that "evidence suggests" that Manziel and his friends "were consuming drugs and alcohol." Her client is seeking $31,580, including $19,580 in damage and replacement fees.

Fantasy Tip: The news that continues to filter out about Manziel's issues off the field are concerning. He's unlikely to be a factor in fantasy in the 2016 season but could resurface eventually.

NFL | Johnny Manziel's agent fed up

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:53:46 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel's (Browns) agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has told Manziel that he needs to get treatment or Rosenhaus will cease representing the embattled quarterback. Rosenhaus has terminated his standard representation with Manziel, but said there is a five-day window for him to rescind that decision.

Fantasy Tip: There is definitely merit to Rosenhaus's frustration. Manziel has not made the most of his opportunities, resulting in his release earlier this offseason. He can be kept on waivers in seasonal leagues until further notice.

NFL | Johnny Manziel moves in with Von Miller

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 09:33:19 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) said he has moved in with Denver Broncos LB Von Miller in an attempt to get back into the NFL. "If I had to make my decision on it, he would already be on the Broncos," Miller said. "But we've got guys in the front office that make those decisions, and they put us in championships with those decisions." Miller and Manziel both went to Texas A and M in college, and head coach Gary Kubiak also played quarterback there.

Fantasy Tip: While the Broncos had some discussions with Manziel about possibly adding him to their roster, nothing appears imminent as Denver looks to add to their quarterback depth chart of Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Even if Manziel were to sign with Denver, he wouldn't appeal to many fantasy owners in 2016.

NFL | Johnny Manziel could be disciplined

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 10:31:12 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) could still be disciplined for assaulting his ex-girlfriend in January, according to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. "Those investigations have been ongoing," Goodell said, noting that the league has yet to come to a satisfactory conclusion on the matter.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel may be on the radar of some teams this offseason, but his off-field problems and possible suspension might scare any suitors away. Manziel shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar heading into 2016.

NFL | Johnny Manziel speaking to teams

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 16:44:12 -0700

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) and his new agent, Drew Rosenhaus, are talking privately with teams. Rosenhaus isn't commented publicly until he has more time to develop a relationship with his new client. Rosenhaus said teams are interested in Manziel, but he didn't specify which ones.

Fantasy Tip: Whichever teams are looking at Manziel aren't looking at him in a starting role, that much can be said. It still remains to be seen if any club will actually take a chance on Johnny Football after all of his off-field problems this past season. He should be nowhere near the radar of any fantasy owners in 2016.

NFL | No teams expected to pick up Johnny Manziel

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 09:00:13 -0800

No NFL teams are expected to pick up the contract of free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns). Of Manziel's $8.245 million over four years with the Cleveland Browns, $7.7 million was fully guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: A QB-needy club could eventually kick the tires on Manziel, but after all the off-field damage he's done in the past year, there's also the possibility that Manziel has played his last down in the NFL. He shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could be traded

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 12:29:03 -0800

The Cleveland Browns have yet to release QB Johnny Manziel because there is some trade interest from unknown teams.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to fathom that any teams would be willing to trade for Manziel after all the off-field trouble he's gotten into this past year. But if it does happen, Manziel probably wouldn't be anything more than a weak fantasy backup.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was not released Wednesday, March 9, but he's expected to be cut later this week.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel won't have many suitors after all of the off-field incidents he's had this past year with Cleveland. He should be firmly off all fantasy radars entering the 2016 season.

Browns | Johnny Manziel case to grand jury

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 15:27:08 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's domestic violence case is heading to a grand jury to determine if Manziel will be indicted for a class A misdemeanor assault. The Dallas Police Department said they are through with their investigation and it will not release any further details of the investigation while it is pending grand jury presentation.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel's troublesome offseason isn't going away any time soon, and he'll probably be released early next month, too. He has shown glimpses of being able to succeed at the NFL level, but his off-field issues have almost completely engulfed his talent so far. Stay away from him in next year's fantasy drafts.

Browns | Johnny Manziel decision coming soon

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 10:58:48 -0800

Cleveland Browns new head coach Hue Jackson said he the club will make a decision on QB Johnny Manziel soon. Jackson didn't say directly the team would cut Manziel, but the Browns intend to take a stand and show that Manziel's behavior won't be tolerated. Cleveland can't release Manziel until the new league year starts March 9 for salary cap reasons.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is likely to be cut by the Browns after his domestic violence incident last month. Whether another team takes a chance on him as a backup quarterback remains to be seen. But after all off his off-field incidents, Manziel has quickly fallen off the fantasy map.
