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.

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 disputes report on contract

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:09:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer disputed a report that he would not re-sign with the team if QB Johnny Manziel was still with the team. "It couldn't be further from the truth," Hoyer said. "There's no accurate information. I've never talked to that guy in my life. From here on out, my main focus is Jacksonville. You guys want to talk about that, you can talk to the guys upstairs or my agent, Joe Linta. I think some of you know. From here on out, I'm on to Jacksonville."

Browns | Brian Hoyer keeping job

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:05:07 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will remain the starting quarterback after the team evaluated the position during their bye week.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has put up solid numbers so far this season and probably will continue to keep the job as long as he is productive. Hoyer likely is not a weekly option for owners, but he could be an option this week against the Tennessee Titans. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Hoyer if they want to spend more money at other positions.

Browns | Jordan Cameron inactive for Week 2

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:38:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is inactive for the Week 2 game Sunday, Sept. 14. TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray are expected to fill in for him.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge and Dray don't warrant fantasy consideration. This is a blow to Brian Hoyer, who had limited options to throw to with Cameron healthy. Hoyer will cost you $4,500 (9% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but he should be avoided except in deep leagues.

Browns | Jordan Cameron expected to sit

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 06:29:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is expected to miss the Week 2 game Sunday, Sept. 14. TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray would fill in for him.

Fantasy Tip: Cameron was a pricey buy at $5,400 (10.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but you should avoid him altogether. Brian Hoyer's stock would also suffer if Cameron were to miss the game.

Browns | Johnny Manziel unlikely to be used

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 16:16:38 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will "probably not" be used in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints unless QB Brian Hoyer is injured, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan also reiterated that Manziel is not a wildcat quarterback, and any plays he would run would come from the regular offensive game plan.

Fantasy Tip: It's a no-brainer: Manziel should not be used in standard or FantasyScore lineups in Week 2.
