Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel showed a strong effort in the team's final preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 28, leading head coach Mike Pettine to acknowledge that the team will consider giving Manziel repetitions Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "It's something we'll discuss," said Pettine. "I don't know if that's necessarily something just because of tonight. We'll have discussions on how we want to game plan and how we want to use those guys." Manziel produced two field goals and a touchdown in his five possessions Thursday, including a 1-yard touchdown pass. He went 6-for-17 for 83 yards and the touchdown for a 71.4 rating, but some of his passes came out wobbly. Manziel also ran for 55 yards on four carries, including a long run of 22 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Manziel can be electric, but he'll surely go through growing pains this year if he sees extended playing time eventually. He's a fine investment in keeper and dynasty leagues, but he shouldn't be anything more than a QB3 in yearly formats.

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya may be on the roster bubble, because TE MarQueis Gray and FB Ray Agnew III are receiving most of the snaps at fullback. Ogbonnaya may need to make the team based on his special teams play.

Fantasy Tip: It would help Gordon if he is able to practice with the team next offseason. Gordon likely will be ranked high in the 2015 rankings if he is able to get a full offseason with the team.

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will not be allowed at the team's facility during his one-year suspension. The team hoped they would be able to work with him during the suspension.
Fantasy Tip: The team probably is worried that Gordon could get into more trouble if he is away from the facility. Gordon's value for 2015 will be tied to what he does during his year off.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will not be allowed to file for reinstatement during his one-year suspension, according to a source. His representatives will look for other alternatives in this case.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Gordon may have to sit out training camp next season because of the suspension, but that has not been determined at this point. If he is not able to take part in camp, Gordon likely will drop a few spots in the 2015 rankings. Owners can consider holding onto Gordon this season since he probably will try to get reinstated.
