Sat, 13 Feb 2016 16:51:32 -0800

Updating an ongoing story, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has a chance to return in 2016 as's Tony Grossi said that he thinks Gordon will play at some point next season

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be a late-round flyer until there is more leaning towards him being reinstated. He has WR1 talent and is worth the later pick.

Browns | Matt Forte unlikely to join Browns

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 16:39:36 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte will not be an option for the Cleveland Browns during free agency, in the opinion on's Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have a few running back options already next season, and Duke Johnson likely will have a bigger role in the offense in 2016. He could be a middle-round option in some deeper leagues. Forte likely will be able to find a job as a change-of-pace back during the offseason and could be selected in the middle rounds of drafts.

Browns | Cleveland interested in Brock Osweiler?

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 18:21:42 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler could be pursued by the Cleveland Browns. Denver Broncos general manager John Elway believes the Browns are Denver's top competition for Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler should be viewed as a backup for fantasy purposes regardless of where he signs, but he would be a more appealing option in Denver where he would have better weapons to throw to and a great defense behind him.

Browns | Cleveland likely to draft quarterback?

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 15:28:03 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is the starting quarterback for the Browns as of now. QB Johnny Manziel will be on his way out next month, too, which causes Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer to believe the Browns will take a quarterback with their No. 2 overall pick, namely California QB Jared Goff or North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz.

Fantasy Tip: No one's finger presses harder on the pulse of the Browns than Cabot's. McCown is a supbar veteran quarterback whose NFL career may be done in the near future, and Manziel has proven time and again that he's not the answer for the future. If Cleveland doesn't sign a bona fide free-agent quarterback, it's hard to imagine the Browns using their No. 2 pick on another position.

Browns | Cleveland refutes Manziel story

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 11:56:27 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was allegedly drunk at a practice last season and the Browns allegedly covered it up by saying he had a concussion. The Browns are denying the report. A Browns spokesman said Johnny Manziel came to the team facility on the morning of December 30 and complained of concussion symptoms. The spokesman also said that Manziel was tested by an independent neurologist and entered the NFL's concussion protocol. He then remained in the protocol until January 12 after being cleared by the neurologist.

Fantasy Tip: It's been quite the career already for Johnny Manziel already, unfortunately mostly because of his off-field goings-on. Manziel is expected to be released by the Browns early next month.

Browns | Teammate says Manziel drunk at practice

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 09:34:05 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel allegedly showed up drunk to a practice late in the season on a Wednesday, and the team tried to cover it up by saying he was in the concussion protocol, according to one Browns player.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is likely to be cut next month, and he has no fantasy value right now.

Browns | Johnny Manziel facing criminal investigation

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 16:14:56 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend issued an affidavit that said Manziel hit her so hard during a late-night confrontation that she lost hearing in one ear. Colleen Crowley suffered a ruptured eardrum, which is expected to heal eventually. She is seeking to obtain a protective order against Manziel. Manziel is currently under criminal investigation on allegations of domestic violence.

"Fearful for my life, I hit (Manziel) several times, hoping I could back out of the car," she said in the affidavit, adding Manziel "threw me off of him and I hit my head on the car window and I fell into the passenger floorboard."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel's career is wobbly right now, at best. The Browns are expected to release him in March, and no teams are likely to be willing to take a chance on him amid this controversy and a possible suspension from the league. Manziel doesn't have any fantasy value at the moment.

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.
