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.

Fantasy Tip: With Manziel out and Brian Hoyer nursing an injury to his throwing shoulder, Connor Shaw could be in line to make the first start of his career this week. Hoyer and Shaw should still be avoided in lineups, however.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the severity of the injuries to Hoyer and Johnny Manziel, the Browns may need to pick up a quarterback this week, although Hoyer's injury doesn't sound too serious. Either way, it's advisable to stay away from Cleveland quarterbacks if you have a championship on the line.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens after hurting his hamstring in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is 18-for-35 for 143 yards, a rushing touchdown and two interceptions in his two starts this year.
Fantasy Tip: Manziel won't be a smart choice for FantasyScore lineups even if he plays against the Ravens. If Brian Hoyer starts in his place, he'll be a cheap alternative at the QB spot, but his limited upside makes him unattractive, as well.

The Cleveland Browns may look to upgrade the quarterback position in the offseason despite the presence of QB Johnny Manziel. League sources have said Browns general manger Ray Farmer has long been fascinated by Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, who is widely expected to be a top-five pick in the 2015 draft. Cleveland owns the 14th and 19th picks in the first round.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Manziel's injury is not known, so owners should monitor the situation. Brian Hoyer likely will take over as the starter while Manziel is out but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins has be fairly quiet over the last three weeks with 38 yards has the high during that span, but has been a big part of the passing game in some games this season. Hawkins costs $3,300 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option for owners looking to save some money at the position.
