Browns | Dwayne Bowe excited for opportunity

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:57:19 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe said he's excited to be on a new team and in a new atmosphere. He added that he wants to fill the shoes of standout WR Josh Gordon, who is serving a season-long suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Bowe said it's his job to replace Gordon in Cleveland's offense and he believes he can do just that. Bowe implied that he'd like to score more touchdowns this season after not scoring any with the Kansas City Chiefs last year. "I got us down in scoring range and with our offense, it was based on running back to the tight end and my job was to play football," Bowe said.

Fantasy Tip: Will Bowe replace Gordon's production? No. Will he score more touchdowns than he did in Kansas City last year? Probably. Unfortunately for Bowe, he went from a run-heavy offense to another run-heavy offense. He hasn't surpassed 1,000 receiving yards since 2011 and hasn't scored more than five touchdowns since 2010. He should be drafted as a WR5, but has WR4 upside.

Browns | Three TEs to platoon for Browns?

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:58:30 -0700

Cleveland Browns TEs Gary Barnidge, Rob Housler and Jim Dray could all end up taking over for TE Jordan Cameron, who is now with the Miami Dolphins. Head coach Mike Pettine said the three tight ends provide some diversity and can be used in different ways.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge and Housler are probably the bigger receiving threats, and thus would be more valuable in fantasy leagues. If a platoon does indeed take form, however, none of them would be worth starting as your every-week tight end.

Browns | Too soon to write off Johnny Manziel?

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:42:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel just "needs more time" to develop and learn how to play from the pocket in order to become an effective NFL quarterback, according to Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.

Fantasy Tip: While Guenther may by right, Manziel isn't likely to have a chance to gain much in-game experience in 2015, at least to start the year. Outside of a late-round stash in dynasty formats, Manziel can be left on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Former QB praises Johnny Manziel

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 18:28:01 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is trending in the right direction, former QB Elvis Grbac said. "It's obviously a learning experience," Grbac said. "I think he's going in the right direction. He's on the right path. I think it'll be somewhat of a rude awakening the first couple games of the season and he will have to adjust."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is expected to open the year as Josh McCown's backup, and although he may see some playing time as the year goes on, he is at least a year away from having any kind of fantasy value.

Browns | Terrelle Pryor's size a problem?

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 18:28:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor's is much taller than players that successfully transitioned from quarterback to receiver like New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman and former WR Antwaan Randle El, and Pryor's size could make it difficult for him to control his body in and out of breaks as he learns the new position.

Browns | Cleveland in contact with Josh Gordon

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:34:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been in contact with an official from the team this offseason, according to a source. Gordon is serving a one-year suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's drug and alcohol policy but is allowed to be in contact with a front office member.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will not play in the 2015 season because of the suspension, so owners should avoid him in all leagues. Gordon could be reinstated next season and may be a fantasy option at that point.

Browns | Johnny Manziel struggling with accuracy

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 10:25:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel continues to struggle with throwing accuracy, but he showed improvement in little things, such as getting the plays called and off on time.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel appears to have very little chance at overtaking Josh McCown as the starter before the season. He still has some dynasty league value, but he has very little single-year league value.
