Browns | Johnny Manziel could play in Week 8

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 11:05:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could see some action in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Mike Pettine. However, Pettine said Monday, Oct. 20, that QB Brian Hoyer is still firmly entrenched as the team's starting quarterback. Hoyer completed a career-low 39 percent of his attempts against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 and threw for 215 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. He has completed only 41.3 percent of his passes in the last two weeks. Pettine blamed Hoyer's poor performance on the team's inability to run and set up play-action.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns face a great matchup in the Raiders this weekend. It's a perfect chance for Hoyer to bounce back from his previous rough outings, but if he doesn't, there's probably a good chance that Manziel is starting in Week 9.

Browns | O-line struggles without Alex Mack

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:16:20 -0700

Cleveland Browns C Alex Mack's (leg) season-ending injury in Week 7 played a big role in the running game sputtering out against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7. OG John Greco slid over from right guard to start in Mack's place, and OG Paul McQuistan started at right guard. Head coach Mike Pettine said the team will evaluate the positions moving forward. C Nick McDonald might be able to fill in for Mack and allow Greco to remain at right guard. Another option would be to use OT Vinston Painter at right guard.

Browns | Terrance West benched

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:37:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West was benched Sunday, Oct. 19, after failing to pick up a first down in two short-yardage situations. He had room to run on both carries but danced in the hole on one carry and ran into his lineman on the other.

Fantasy Tip: The team plans to re-evaluate their split at running back, and it's possible West has fallen out of favor enough to become a weekly scratch. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now.

Browns | CLE re-evaluating RB rotation

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:36:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West were held to 69 yards on 33 carries in Week 7, and head coach Mike Pettine suggested a change was coming for the trio. "We'll have a discussion this week as to how to best rotate those guys," Pettine said.

Fantasy Tip: We could see the work limited to just Tate and Crowell, maybe at a 60-40 split at best, at least for Crowell. Tate ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) is a mid-rate RB2 against the Oakland Raiders on FantasyScore this week. Crowell ($4,000; 8%) is worth consideration at flex, but there are better options unless he's going to have a larger role. West was benched last week and may not even dress.

Browns | Brian Hoyer struggled in Week 7

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 15:03:22 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed only 39 percent of his passes in the team's Week 7 game, which is the worst completion percentage by any quarterback this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer struggled against the Jacksonville Jaguars but will receive another start this week. He could be a cheap starting option on FantasyScore this upcoming week since he will be facing the Oakland Raiders.

Browns | Brian Hoyer still starting QB

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:33:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer is still the team's starting quarterback even though he struggled in Week 7, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer should keep his starting job unless he continues to struggle. Hoyer has a good matchup this week against the Oakland Raiders and could be a cheap starting option on FantasyScore.
