Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has support from veteran Browns receiver Nate Burleson, who said, "I'll just say this, Johnny's still the man." Burleson also noted that he is pleased with head coach Mike Pettine's decision to start QB Brian Hoyer.

Fantasy Tip: Just another reason to think Manziel needs to sit a bit before getting his starting opportunity.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2, and it sounds like he must perform extremely well to hold off Manziel. Manziel is a mid-to-low QB2 with upside.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will not have a package of plays created for him to run off the bench, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel has been slow to adjust to taking snaps under center and the new playbook.
Fantasy Tip: Manziel has mid-to-low QB2 value and could see his first action sometime this season.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin could have a solid role in the team's offense this season but should not be selected in fantasy league drafts.

Fantasy Tip: An announcement could come any day as the hearing was 15 days ago.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer has been named the starting quarterback over QB Johnny Manziel. Head coach Mike Pettine wrote the announcement in an e-mail and said Manziel made great strides, but Hoyer had a decided edge.
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2 in fantasy leagues. Manziel should only be drafted in dynasty leagues. If you're in a deeper single-year league, target him as a low QB2. In most mixed leagues, you can probably score him on waivers during the season if you choose to do so.

Fantasy Tip: Although Manziel's antics could cost him a shot at starting in Week 1, he is still the Cleveland quarterback worth drafting, albeit as a QB2. It is only a matter of time before he is given a chance to start, and his ability to run the ball gives him fantasy potential that Brian Hoyer simply doesn't have.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is still awaiting a decision on his impending suspension, but it still doesn't bode well that he's not putting forth his best effort in the eyes of Pettine. When he does put forth the effort, Gordon is one of the top fantasy receivers in football, though his value will take a hit once a suspension is announced.

Fantasy Tip: It could also have displeased the team enough to name Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback while Manziel matures. Both players struggled in the game, but the team wants to name a starter before the next preseason game.

Cleveland Browns QBs Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel remain in a competition for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "All options on the table," Pettine said following the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed two of his six pass attempts for 16 yards during the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18, and QB Johnny Manziel completed seven of his 16 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Manziel was also sacked three times and gave the middle finger to the Washington Redskins' bench.
Fantasy Tip: The starting QB situation in Cleveland really isn't much clearer after this game. From a fantasy standpoint, Manziel has a much higher ceiling thanks to his ability to gain yards on the ground, and he is worth adding as a QB2, even if he doesn't open the year as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for more updates on West's status. He has been pushing starter Ben Tate throughout the preseason and figures to have a steady role in the Browns' offense this year. If West's injury turns out to be something major, Tate would become a solid RB2.
