Browns | Josh Gordon must convince commissioner

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 17:48:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon must convince NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he won't slip up again in the future in order to be reinstated. "Our No. 1 issue here is to prevent these things from happening," Goodell said Friday, Feb. 5. "I'm hopeful that Josh understands that he's going to have to conduct himself differently going forward to be a member of the NFL and to be representing the Cleveland Browns, or any team in the NFL."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has WR1 upside, but it remains to be seen if he will be reinstated and when a decision will be made. Until his fate is decided, he is a late-round flier in drafts.

Browns | Josh Gordon confident in a return

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 10:35:36 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is confident that he has met the terms of his indefinite suspension in order to be reinstated, according to a source. If Gordon is reinstated, he would revert back to Stage 3 of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He would receive random testing and would still be one more incident away from another indefinite suspension.

Fantasy Tip: If reinstated, Gordon would immediately supplant Travis Benjamin as the Browns' No. 1 wide receiver. Gordon, Benjamin and TE Gary Barnidge would make for a nice pass-catching threesome in Cleveland, but the quarterback situation is currently less than ideal. There's no guarantee that Gordon receives his reinstatement, so continue to track his status throughout the offseason.

Browns | Cleveland unable to reach Johnny Manziel

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:45:38 -0800

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has been unable to reach QB Johnny Manziel in the wake of his off-field incident last weekend in which his ex-girlfriend claimed that he hit her several times and appeared to be on drugs. "We're not worried about Johnny Manziel the football player, we're worried about Johnny Manziel the person, and I think that's all we need to say on the issue," Haslam said. Haslam "appeared frustrated" and "emotional." Manziel will not face charges for the incident.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns are fully prepared to release Manziel next month amid his off-field problems, and given the latest development last weekend with his ex-girlfriend, not many NFL teams are likely to want to take a chance on him. There's a chance Manziel never plays in the NFL again. His fantasy value takes a back seat to his personal health and well-being.

Browns | Johnny Manziel's family worried

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:28:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's father, Paul Manziel, said Johnny has twice declined to be admitted to area rehabilitation facilities in the last week. Paul Manziel said he's worried about his son's well being. "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday," Manziel said.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has no fantasy value right now as he clearly has things to address before worrying about his football career.

Browns | Johnny Manziel's agent drops him

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:27:02 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's agent, Erik Burkhardt, has cut ties with him Friday, Feb. 5. Last month, Cleveland Cavaliers star forward LeBron James dropped Manziel from James' LRMR marketing firm.

Fantasy Tip: The news keeps getting more grim for Manziel. He has no fantasy prowess right now.

Browns | Johnny Manziel won't be charged

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 17:02:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will not be charged for an incident involving his ex-girlfriend last weekend. The investigation is closed.

Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat of a mysterious result considering the alleged account detailed by Manziel's ex-girlfriend earlier, but it's good news for Manziel, for now. He's likely still facing a release by the Browns in early March, though, so continue to keep him off your fantasy radar.

Browns | Plot thickens for Johnny Manziel

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 15:43:26 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel allegedly struck his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, several times Saturday, Jan. 30. Crowley said she believed Manziel may have been on drugs or having a psychotic breakdown at the time of the incident.

Fantasy Tip: Much has been made of Manziel's off-field antics throughout his young career. This latest episode may be the nail in the coffin for Manziel's future in Cleveland, and possibly his future in the NFL. You can disregard him for the foreseeable future.

Browns | Travis Benjamin likely staying

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:17:54 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin said he could get a deal done with the Browns before March. Furthermore, he spoke with new head coach Hue Jackson, who said he loves Benjamin's skill set and that 2016 will hopefully be a great season for the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: The writing seems to be on the wall for Benjamin to stay in Cleveland. They'll need him, too, as he was far and away their most productive wide receiver last season. He also gives them one of the league's best punt returners. The quarterback situation isn't ideal, though. Consider Benjamin a WR3.

Browns | Travis Benjamin deal done soon?

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 13:34:52 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin may receive a new deal in the near future, according to his agent.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is certainly worth of a new contract following last season. He was by far Cleveland's No. 1 wide receiver and a big threat as a punt returner. He may not be the most reliable starter in the fantasy football realm, partly due to inconsistent quarterback play, but view him as a WR3 for 2016.

Browns | Trades for Johnny Manziel unlikely

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 14:02:34 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be cut March 9, according to a source, as reported earlier. The Browns will entertain any late-round trade offers for Manziel, but they don't expect that to transpire, especially after Manziel's off-field antics.

Fantasy Tip: It shouldn't be a big surprise if nobody courts Manziel prior to his inevitable release. He's just too big of a risky right now, and he probably wouldn't even start if someone did sign him. Keep him on your league's waivers.

Browns | Teams interested in Johnny Manziel

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:21:39 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel said three teams have shown interest in him: the Los Angeles Rams, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams were interested in Manziel during the NFL Draft and the Chiefs apparently have no interest in him now. Manziel and the Cowboys have been rumored for a while, and Dallas may be Manziel's best bet if he is indeed released by the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel probably won't start if he is released and subsequently signed, which would give him no fantasy value. He would likely wait in the wings for his chance to start, but he won't be on the fantasy radar any time soon.

Browns | Johnny Manziel likely gone in March

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 09:44:27 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be released after the new league year begins March 9, according to a source. Releasing Manziel this month would count $4.6 million against the salary cap. The Browns released a statement from new director of football operations Sashi Brown Tuesday, Feb. 2, that expressed disappointment in Manziel for his latest off-field incident, but stopped short of saying his run in Cleveland is over.
"We've been clear about expectations for our players on and off the field. Johnny's continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization," he said. "His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has no fantasy value right now, but he'll likely latch on with another team. If he has a chance to earn a starting job, he's worth watching in fantasy.

Browns | Josh Gordon vows to change

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:27:24 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he plans to "disassociate" himself from those that could be contributing to keeping him out of the NFL. Gordon has been suspended a year for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, and he recently applied for reinstatement. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will make a decision within 60 days of Gordon's application.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard not to envision Cleveland's new management not being on board with Gordon shaping up to play for this football team. He's still only 25 and clearly has the tools to be an elite receiver if he can get his head straight. There's obviously risk involved, but if Gordon is reinstated for next season, he's likely to be a early-round draft pick.

Browns | Johnny Manziel investigation ongoing

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 12:28:17 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is still being investigated for a possible assault of an ex-girlfriend Saturday, Jan. 30. The investigation is ongoing, and it is the second time in as many months that the NFL has investigated Manziel for a domestic incident.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel's future in Cleveland wasn't looking bright anyway, but if he is convicted in this incident then that will probably be the nail in the coffin. If Manziel is eventually let go, these off-field occurrences may hinder prospective teams from pursuing the embattled quarterback. His status will need to be monitored over the next few weeks and throughout the offseason, but he's nowhere near starting fantasy quarterback material right now.
