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 | 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 | Cleveland fine with Josh McCown as QB

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 15:33:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown could be the team's starting quarterback in 2015, because head coach Mike Pettine said he would be comfortable with McCown as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: McCown may be considered the leading candidate for the starting job at this point, but he will have to compete with Johnny Manziel for the job during training camp. McCown would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if becomes the starter.

Browns | Josh McCown expects to start

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:44:47 -0800

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.

Browns | Josh McCown to work with Johnny Manziel

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:18:25 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will work with QB Johnny Manziel to help him get used to the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is obviously not the long-term solution in Cleveland, but he provides a bit of stability. His vow to work with Manziel also means the Browns have some faith in their troubled quarterback. McCown is a backup QB in most fantasy leagues, while Manziel remains an intriguing project with little fantasy value at the moment.

Browns | Three-year deal for Josh McCown

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 16:37:32 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown signed a three-year deal Friday, Feb. 27, according to a source. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed. McCown completed 184 of 327 passes for 2,206 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. McCown has a good relationship with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo from their days with the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: The signing of McCown likely means Brian Hoyer will move on and try to land a job elsewhere. McCown will likely compete for the starting quarterback job with Johnny Manziel in training camp. If McCown wins the job, he offers very little upside, despite having succeeded in the NFL before. He's nothing more than a weak QB2 selection if he's starting.

Browns | Browns in talks with Josh McCown

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 20:32:53 -0800

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) has had contract talks with the Cleveland Browns in addition to the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: He would likely have a chance to compete for the starting job in Cleveland, but unless the Browns upgrade their weapons in the passing game significantly this offseason, McCown wouldn't have much fantasy value as the starter.
