Cleveland Browns QB Thaddeus Lewis and Connor Shaw are expected to compete for the No. 3 quarterback job during training camp and preseason games.

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.

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is expecting to start after signing a three-year, $14 million deal last week that includes $6.25 million in guarantees and $6 million in incentives. McCown went just 1-10 as the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year. McCown will compete with QBs Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw this summer.
Fantasy Tip: As of right now, McCown looks like the most likely candidate to start for the Browns, with Manziel in a treatment facility for personal issues. If McCown wins the job in training camp, though he shouldn't be considered anything more than a weak QB2 for fantasy owners.

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.

The Cleveland Browns signed practice squad QB Connor Shaw to their active roster Saturday, Dec. 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Shaw will be the team's starting quarterback in Week 17 but should not be an option for owners on FantasyScore.
Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:27:35 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Connor Shaw agreed to an undisclosed multi-year deal Friday, Dec. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Shaw will start against the Baltimore Ravens in the season finale. Although the Ravens have been easily beaten through the air this year, you shouldn't want Shaw on your FantasyScore team because of his lack of experience.
Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:11:44 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Connor Shaw will officially start the season finale versus the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, Dec. 28. QBs Brian Hoyer (shoulder) and Johnny Manziel (hamstring) were both injured last week and are not expected to play.
Fantasy Tip: While Shaw normally might be considered a value play, he's not this week with all prices being equal on FantasyScore. Stay away from the greenhorn for fantasy football's final week.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:41:30 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Connor Shaw will get first-team reps in practice this week, and he is in line to start the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Fantasy Tip: Johnny Manziel left the Week 16 game with a hamstring injury, and he has been ruled out. Brian Hoyer suffered a shoulder injury, and he is also questionable at best. The team even reached out to Rex Grossman to see if he would be interested in joining the team for one week.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 13:33:19 -0800
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Connor Shaw was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad Monday, Dec. 22. He will take first-team repetitions this week, according to head coach Mike Pettine.
Fantasy Tip: With Johnny Manziel out and Brian Hoyer feeling sore with a right shoulder injury, Shaw could very well start this week, but is still not worth starting on any fantasy squads with fantasy championships potentially at stake.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 12:27:00 -0800
Cleveland Browns QB Connor Shaw could start the final week of the season with QBs Brian Hoyer (shoulder) and Johnny Manziel (hamstring) nursing their respective injuries. The first step would be for the team to activate Shaw from their practice squad.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Shaw starts, there's no way he should be started on FantasyScore or in seasonal leagues, especially since all players are $5,555 on FantasyScore for the final week of the season.
