Browns | Johnny Football enters camp as No. 2

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:31:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel enters training camp as the No. 2 quarterback, although head coach Mike Pettine offered no guarantees Monday, July 27, that QB Josh McCown will be the Week 1 starter. "The repetitions will (still) be handled that way, with Josh as the one," Pettine said. "Now, I wouldn't say I'm guaranteeing today that Josh McCown is going to be the starter against the Jets."

Fantasy Tip: Manziel can still win the starting job with a strong training camp and preseason, but apparently the team likes McCown's experience and leadership enough to anoint him the starter heading into camp. Whomever emerges as the starter is still only worth using as a low-end QB2 in standard fantasy formats.

Browns | Josh McCown not guaranteed of job

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:30:14 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown enters training camp as the team's starting signal caller, but head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, July 27, that McCown is not guaranteed of the job. "The repetitions will (still) be handled that way, with Josh as the one," Pettine said. "Now, I wouldn't say I'm guaranteeing today that Josh McCown is going to be the starter against the Jets (in Week 1)."

Fantasy Tip: The winner of the Cleveland quarterback job is still only worth considering as a low-end QB2 in standard fantasy leagues, useful only when your primary starter has a difficult matchup or bye.

Browns | Terrelle Pryor not ruled out as QB

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:25:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor has not been ruled out as the quarterback sometime down the road, but head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, July 27, that he wants the former QB "to focus 1,000 percent on receiver."

Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be surprising to see the Browns draw up some packages for the regular season using Pryor in the Wildcat formation. However, even if Pryor makes the team and gets a handful of snaps it will take a while before he has some actual fantasy appeal at his new position.

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:17:02 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel doesn't have the backup quarterback job locked up yet, but he is still the favorite. QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Connor Shaw will battle Manziel during training camp and preseason.

Browns | Duke Johnson can perform immediately

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 11:45:47 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson has the ability to step in and perform at a high level right away, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is just one piece of the Browns' running backs puzzle this year. Isaiah Crowell is expected to be the lead back to start the season, but Terrance West and Johnson are too talented to keep off the field for too long. Who knows who will end up seeing the lion's share of touches out the backfield, but Crowell and Johnson probably have the highest ceiling.

Browns | Johnny Manziel works with Jon Gruden

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 08:07:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel recently worked with former NFL head coach Jon Gruden in hopes of improving his film work and mechanics, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is expected to have a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job, but Josh McCown will be the heavy favorite entering training camp. Manziel likely would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he were able to win the job.

Browns | Duke Johnson won't start right away

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:58:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will play a prominent role in Cleveland's offense in his rookie year, but RB Isaiah Crowell is still the favorite to start. Johnson is also the most capable pass-catcher in the trio of Johnson, Crowell and RB Terrence West, according to Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon Journal.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns' backfield certainly has the makings of a three-headed monster. Crowell and West will probably do most of the running, while Johnson should be used most of the three in the passing game. Any one of them could end up as a RB2. Crowell will have the most value right away, but Johnson may have the most upside.

Browns | Danny Shelton a three-down player?

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 09:38:16 -0700

Cleveland Browns DT Danny Shelton has the potential to become a three-down player even though he posted a slow time in the 40-yard dash at the scouting combine, according to defensive line coach Anthony Weaver. "I think he has all the potential in the world to be a three-down player. The way he can collapse the pocket in pass rush will make more success for our edge [rushers]. He plays the game with a type of energy that you just can't fake," Weaver said.

Browns | CLE could ride hot hand at RB

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 13:57:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Isaiah Crowell, Terrance West and Duke Johnson are expected to make up a three-headed committee this season in the backfield. Offensive coordinator John DeFilippo has said there won't be a specific method for how touches are distributed, but Crowell is expected to begin the season as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Crowell, West and Johnson all have the ability to be Cleveland's starting running back. Crowell and West both had stellar rookie campaigns in 2014, and Johnson has impressed everyone in his first offseason out of the University of Miami (Fla.). Crowell should be selected first in drafts, but this backfield could turn into a crapshoot.

Browns | Glenn Winston to be fourth RB?

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 13:35:09 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Glenn Winston may be the favorite to be the last running back on the final roster, if the Browns do keep four running backs. Winston has impressed coaches this offseason and could beat out fellow RBs Shaun Draughn and Luke Lundy.
