Browns | Brian Hoyer is very sore

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:42:45 -0800

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.

Browns | Connor Shaw to see first-team reps

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:41:30 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Connor Shaw will get first-team reps in practice this week, and he is in line to start the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Johnny Manziel left the Week 16 game with a hamstring injury, and he has been ruled out. Brian Hoyer suffered a shoulder injury, and he is also questionable at best. The team even reached out to Rex Grossman to see if he would be interested in joining the team for one week.

Browns | Rex Grossman unlikely to join Browns

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:40:49 -0800

Free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) is unlikely to join the Cleveland Browns for the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens, as the two sides could not work out business logistics during Christmas week. The Browns have ruled out QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) for Sunday's game, and QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder) is nursing an injury, leaving QB Connor Shaw as the potential starter.

Browns | Terrance West buried on depth chart

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:50:08 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West was behind RBs Isaiah Crowell and Shaun Draughn in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers, because Crowell and Draughn had a better practice week than West, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: West ($5,555) should no longer be in consideration for a start in FantasyScore lineups. Crowell ($5,555) is the much better option in the Browns backfield, but the matchup against a strong Baltimore Ravens run defense in Week 17 makes Crowell a RB3, at best.

Browns | Cleveland's run D the worst in league

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:43:09 -0800

The Cleveland Browns rank 32nd out of 32 teams in the league in run defense this year, and opponents are gaining 142.4 yards on the ground per game. The Browns allowed over 200 yards rushing for the third time this year against the Carolina Panthers last week, and it was the second time in the last two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: That makes Justin Forsett ($5,555) a strong RB1 play at FantasyScore in Week 17 as they try to get into the playoffs. Bernard Pierce ($5,555) may be worth a sleeper look as a flex play, as well.

Browns | Andrew Hawkins in a splint

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:24:20 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (thumb) left after the team's Week 16 game with a splint on his right thumb, and he couldn't move his thumb at all while getting dressed.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins ($5,555) had just one catch in the team's Week 16 loss. Despite a solid matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in the season finale, he could have Connor Shaw throwing him passes, making him a candidate to avoid at FantasyScore.

Browns | Interest in Rex Grossman?

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 13:39:28 -0800

The Cleveland Browns could re-sign free-agent QB Rex Grossman this week with injuries to QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer. Head coach Mike Pettine said the team is exploring other options to add to the roster. Cleveland already promoted QB Connor Shaw to the 53-man roster. Pettine said Shaw will take first-team repetitions this week.

Browns | Connor Shaw promoted

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 13:33:19 -0800

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.

Browns | Johnny Manziel done for the year

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 13:06:29 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is out for the rest of the year due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

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.

Browns | Connor Shaw could start this week

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 12:27:00 -0800

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.

Browns | Brian Hoyer nursing shoulder injury

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 11:29:30 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder) will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis with a shoulder injury he suffered in Week 16.

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.

Browns | Johnny Manziel questionable for Week 17

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 09:09:57 -0800

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.

Browns | Cleveland open to QB upgrade

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 00:20:42 -0800

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.
