Browns | Johnny Manziel impressing OC

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:20:20 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has impressed Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo since Manziel has returned from a stint in a treatment center. Cleveland's new play-caller said Manziel is spending every hour that he is allowed to spend in the building and is putting himself into a position to be an NFL quarterback. DeFilippo said he wouldn't sacrifice Manziel's athleticism to pigeonhole him into a scheme that doesn't fit his skill set.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has to beat out Josh McCown for the starting gig in Cleveland, but it is encouraging to see DeFilippo praising his work ethic. A lot has to change between now and Week 1, but Manziel has enough upside to warrant a QB2 roster spot if he finally looks the part of pro passer in the preseason.

Browns | Johnny Manziel a full-go in OTAs

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:20:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will fully participate in organized team activities starting Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel needs to win the starting job, distance himself from the competition, and earn the trust of fantasy owners before deserving a draft selection this summer. He's a shaky QB2 draft target in the an optimistic scenario.

Browns | Johnny Manziel intends to start

Sat, 16 May 2015 16:37:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel intends to be the team's 2015 starter, according to teammate CB Joe Haden. "He's a competitor. I think it's all about competition. We have Josh McCown. We have Johnny. We have (Connor) Shaw. All those guys. Just all of them feel like they can win the starting job," said Haden.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Manziel beats the odds and is named the Browns' starting quarterback out of training camp, the reality of Josh Gordon's suspension and Jordan Cameron's free-agent departure will limit Manziel's fantasy potential. Manziel will likely open the season as nothing more than a late-round flier in two-quarterback leagues.

Browns | Coach not on board with Johnny Manziel

Fri, 15 May 2015 08:57:51 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has turned off head coach Mike Pettine, while general manager Ray Farmer, owner Jimmy Haslam and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo believe Manziel can be salvaged, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Pettine has installed Josh McCown as the starter entering training camp, and Manziel will have to earn the spot back. McCown obviously isn't the answer at 35, so the potential for Manziel is still there. At this rate, McCown is a low-end QB2, and Manziel shouldn't be drafted.

Browns | Josh McCown showing leadership

Tue, 12 May 2015 14:01:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has taken control of the Cleveland offense and the locker room, according to new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. Head coach Mike Pettine has already said that McCown's experience has given him the advantage for the starting quarterback position.

Fantasy Tip: McCown isn't necessarily a lock for starting quarterback, but he seems to be well on his way to being under center in Week 1. His supporting cast is lackluster, however, as far as pass-catchers are concerned. He's comfortably in the backup fantasy quarterback conversation.

Browns | Cleveland to have PK competition

Mon, 11 May 2015 10:16:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns PKs Travis Coons and Carey Spear will compete for the kicker job this offseason, and the competition is wide open at this point, according to special teams coordinator Chris Tabor.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player has a lot of NFL experience, so it appears to be an even competition at this point. Coons and Spear likely will not be selected in fantasy leagues next season if they will the job.

Browns | Garrett Hartley cut

Mon, 11 May 2015 10:09:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns PK Garrett Hartley was released Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Hartley could join a team later this offseason and compete for a kicker job but likely would not be a great choice in drafts next season if he wins a job.

Browns | Josh McCown declared starter

Sun, 10 May 2015 13:48:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine has declared that QB Josh McCown will enter the 2015 season as the No. 1 quarterback on the team's depth chart. "We're not going to start talking competition," Pettine said. "Josh will more than likely be the starter going into camp, and in the foreseeable future I don't see that changing."

Fantasy Tip: McCown had long been favored to win the starting job but he is nothing more than a low-end QB2 option for fantasy owners with Cleveland's anemic offense. One of the reasons why Pettine might have named his starter so soon is to allow Johnny Manziel, who recently spent 10 weeks in a rehab facility, to focus on readjusting to life in the NFL instead of worrying about competing for the starting job.
