Browns | Johnny Manziel fined

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 08:56:30 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for giving the Washington Redskins sideline in the middle finger in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Just another reason to think Manziel needs to sit a bit before getting his starting opportunity.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could play later

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 07:17:34 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2, and it sounds like he must perform extremely well to hold off Manziel. Manziel is a mid-to-low QB2 with upside.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to sit, learn

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 05:20:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will not have a package of plays created for him to run off the bench, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel has been slow to adjust to taking snaps under center and the new playbook.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel has mid-to-low QB2 value and could see his first action sometime this season.

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 10:10:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (ribs) is participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin could have a solid role in the team's offense this season but should not be selected in fantasy league drafts.

Browns | Josh Gordon appeal case had no settlement talks

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 06:57:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's appeal hearing for his one-year suspension had no settlement talks. There has yet to be a ruling on the matter, but it appears to be an all-or-nothing case.

Fantasy Tip: An announcement could come any day as the hearing was 15 days ago.

Browns | Brian Hoyer named starter

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 05:42:33 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer has been named the starting quarterback over QB Johnny Manziel. Head coach Mike Pettine wrote the announcement in an e-mail and said Manziel made great strides, but Hoyer had a decided edge.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2 in fantasy leagues. Manziel should only be drafted in dynasty leagues. If you're in a deeper single-year league, target him as a low QB2. In most mixed leagues, you can probably score him on waivers during the season if you choose to do so.

Browns | Mike Pettine talks Johnny Manziel

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:53:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's obscene gesture will play a factor in the competition for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: Although Manziel's antics could cost him a shot at starting in Week 1, he is still the Cleveland quarterback worth drafting, albeit as a QB2. It is only a matter of time before he is given a chance to start, and his ability to run the ball gives him fantasy potential that Brian Hoyer simply doesn't have.

Browns | Josh Gordon too passive?

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 13:39:29 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could have shown more effort on a couple plays during the team's Monday night game against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is still awaiting a decision on his impending suspension, but it still doesn't bode well that he's not putting forth his best effort in the eyes of Pettine. When he does put forth the effort, Gordon is one of the top fantasy receivers in football, though his value will take a hit once a suspension is announced.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could be facing a fine

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 05:49:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could be fined for an obscene gesture he made toward the Washington Redskins' bench in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It could also have displeased the team enough to name Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback while Manziel matures. Both players struggled in the game, but the team wants to name a starter before the next preseason game.

Browns | QB job still up for grabs

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 21:05:14 -0700

Browns | Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel struggle

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 20:54:52 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed two of his six pass attempts for 16 yards during the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18, and QB Johnny Manziel completed seven of his 16 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Manziel was also sacked three times and gave the middle finger to the Washington Redskins' bench.

Fantasy Tip: The starting QB situation in Cleveland really isn't much clearer after this game. From a fantasy standpoint, Manziel has a much higher ceiling thanks to his ability to gain yards on the ground, and he is worth adding as a QB2, even if he doesn't open the year as the starter.

Browns | Terrance West helped off the field

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 19:41:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West (undisclosed) was helped off the field at the end of the third quarter of the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for more updates on West's status. He has been pushing starter Ben Tate throughout the preseason and figures to have a steady role in the Browns' offense this year. If West's injury turns out to be something major, Tate would become a solid RB2.
