Browns | Ben Tate, Terrance West might be great battle

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 22:02:45 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate and Terrance West will compete for the starting tailback job during training camp and the preseason, and it's a battle head coach Mike Pettine is looking forward to. "And the best competition might be Ben Tate and our guy (Terrance West) from Towson, who I really like," Pettine said Tuesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: The player to emerge as the starter will be a decent RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle will be best used as an RB3/4 in most formats.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:58:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns OG Joel Bitonio (ankle) lined up with the first-team offense during organized team activities (OTAs), and he held the spot until he suffered a sprained ankle June 3. Bitonio expects to be ready for the start of training camp, and barring any setbacks he is considered likely to start at left guard in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Browns | Josh Gordon to practice

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:40:42 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) will practice when training camp starts, according to head coach Mike Pettine, despite his impending suspension.

Fantasy Tip: This is no reason to get your hopes up with Gordon despite the news of him practicing. His year-long suspension is all but guaranteed at this point, it's just not official yet.

Browns | Josh Gordon won't be cut

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:52:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon won't be cut despite his looming suspension hearing and appeal, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: They're willing to stick out whatever the discipline winds up being, at least for now. This could change as an actual suspension is handed down and enforced, so keep tabs. It doesn't look as if Gordon will be anything more than a middle- and late-rounds flyer for fantasy purposes.

Browns | Charles Johnson intriguing

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:22:15 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Charles X. Johnson is expected to get a chance to rise up the depth chart and challenge the older Miles Austin and Nate Burleson for snaps.

Fantasy Tip: The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder, who has battled knee injuries, was called "intriguing" by Tom Reed and is someone to watch during the year.

Browns | Josh Gordon hearing soon?

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:11:09 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's hearing on a possible suspension is expected to take place in the next 10 days, possibly two weeks, according to head coach Mike Pettine. They're also preparing for an appeal not long after.

Fantasy Tip: The waiting game continues. Hopefully, your draft doesn't take place until closer to the start of Week 1 so you'll have a sound idea of whether he's still worth a bench selection.

Browns | Starting QB will be named in preseason

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:06:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer will know who is starting before the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike Pettine, though it could happen sooner. Pettine has expressed hesitation to name Manziel the starter immediately and thinks Hoyer's chances are underrated.

Fantasy Tip: It depends heavily on how Hoyer responds during his knee recovery. This could be a battle to watch during the season. Manziel is nothing more than a low-end QB2 and ideally ranks as a third slinger for 2014 fantasy football drafts. Hoyer could be a sneaky QB3 in such leagues that require that depth.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:05:22 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel talked with head coach Mike Pettine, who expressed concerns about Manziel's off-field behavior. Pettine said it was a "positive conversation" and that he doesn't feel as if Manziel's purported party activities will be a problem once the NFL season starts.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully, the Manziel news starts to trend toward the quarterback battle he'll have with Brian Hoyer.
