Cleveland Browns DE Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) and C Ryan Seymour (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 25. TE Gary Barnidge (rib), DE Desmond Bryant (thumb), CB Joe Haden (shoulder), WR Marlon Moore (knee), LB Jabaal Sheard (foot) and CB K'Waun Williams (hamstring) were limited during practice. The Browns did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Hawkins will be a question mark for the team's Week 17 game. Hawkins has not done much over the last four games, so he does not appear to be a good option for owners on FantasyScore this week if he is able to play.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look like Hoyer will play in Week 17, so Connor Shaw may receive the start. Owners on FantansyScore probably should avoid whichever quarterback starts for the Browns.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel isn't out of the team's plans for next season after playing only around seven quarters of football in his rookie season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "He's a player on our roster," Pettine said. "He'll have the chance to compete." Manziel said this week that he pressed too hard as a starter, and he plans to have a much more productive offseason heading into his second year.
Fantasy Tip: Manziel is out for Week 17, so don't think about using him at FantasyScore. It's not wise to use Connor Shaw ($5,555) against the Baltimore Ravens, either. For next season, Manziel won't be guaranteed a starting job heading into training camp, so he probably won't be worth a selection late in drafts as a backup in standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Connor Shaw is in line to start the team's game in Week 17, but he should not be considered for FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: With Manziel done for the year, and Brian Hoyer hurt, the team could turn to Connor Shaw for Week 17. He should not be considered in FantasyScore contests.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns could be forced to start Connor Shaw ($5,555) if Hoyer can't play against the Baltimore Ravens. Neither quarterback should be considered even for a second at FantasyScore this weekend.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder) has no structural damage to his shoulder, but he is dealing with a significant bruise suffered in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers. Head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, Dec. 22, that Hoyer is "very sore."
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has a chance to re-gain his starting job for the regular season finale, as Johnny Manziel is already ruled out with a hamstring injury. But Connor Shaw is expected to get first-team reps this week and might make his first career NFL start. Hoyer could be available on an emergency basis only. FantasyScore owners would be wise to avoid the entire situation.
