Browns | Cleveland wants pick for Josh McCown

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 09:04:56 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is not expected to be traded unless the team receives at least a fourth-round draft choice in return. The Dallas Cowboys are not interested in offering more than a sixth-round pick for McCown.

Fantasy Tip: McCown will be a backup quarterback no matter where he plays this season and will not have fantasy value unless he becomes a starter.

Browns | Corey Coleman showing nose for end zone

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 19:57:44 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman was praised for his ability to find the end zone by offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, QB Josh McCown and QB Robert Griffin III.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman continues to draw tons of praise during training camp, and he should be drafted as a WR4 with upside in season-long leagues.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 06:00:28 -0700

Browns | Cowboys looking at Josh McCown

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 17:11:02 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has popped up on the Dallas Cowboys' radar as a possibility to replace injured backup QB Kellen Moore (ankle), who is slated to be out three to four months with a broken right fibula.

Fantasy Tip: Whether he ends up in Dallas or remains with Cleveland, McCown will be positioned behind an injury-prone quarterback, so he may have a chance to contribute at some point this season. Of course, an injury must take shape first, which is why owners don't need to worry about the 12-year veteran on draft day.

Cowboys | Josh McCown may be option for Cowboys

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 10:36:35 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown may be a trade target for the Dallas Cowboys since they are looking for a backup quarterback, in the opinion of ESPN's Ed Werder.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is not expected to win the starting quarterback job with the Browns, so he will be a backup no matter where he plays in 2016. Owners should avoid him since he will not have much value.

Browns | RG3 helped out by Josh McCown

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:25:38 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III has improved by "leaps and bounds" as a leader, partly due to veteran QB Josh McCown guiding him, head coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday, Aug. 2. "A lot of him getting better has to do with Josh McCown," Jackson said. "Josh McCown has really done a great job of spending time with him and mentoring him … to try and make the biggest jump that he can. Our quarterback room is a special place right now."

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has a long way to go before he is considered anything more than a backup fantasy option in most leagues. The only time RG3 should be starting is in fantasy formats which require two starting signal callers.

Browns | Robert Griffin works with starters

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 15:31:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Friday, July 29. QB Josh McCown worked with the second-team offense during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to the clear favorite to win the starting quarterback job. He will not have a lot of weapons to work with in the passing game this season and should be seen as a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Browns | Josh McCown was steady in spring

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:45:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown looked more ready in spring practices than QB Robert Griffin III, and he knows the offensive line well while having a rapport and timing down with some of the receivers. McCown posted a 93.3 quarterback rating in 2015, 14th in the NFL. However, the team isn't expected to build around a quarterback who is 37. He might be kept around as an insurance policy in case QB Cody Kessler isn't ready.

Fantasy Tip: McCown's outlook is up in the air, as RG3 is expected to start, although nothing is written in stone. Unless he is able to win the starting job, avoid him in all fantasy leagues. Even then he would only be worth a look as a No. 2 or 3 fantasy option in most leagues.

Browns | Josh McCown to miss final roster?

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 11:49:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown may not make the 53-man roster, according to ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Tip: McCown could be released if the Browns do not trade him. Robert Griffin III is expected to start in Cleveland, so McCown can continue to be avoided in fantasy drafts.

Browns | Cleveland starter not close to official

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 16:42:39 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown and Cody Kessler will be part of an open competition in training camp, according to head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson said he is not even close to naming a starting quarterback at the close of minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin still figures to be the favorite to start, but anything can happen between now and late August. As has been said before, though, none of Cleveland's quarterbacks are QB1 material.
