Sat, 08 Oct 2016 15:16:05 -0700

Broncos | Trevor Siemian not starting

Sat, 08 Oct 2016 15:08:14 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will not be the starting quarterback in Week 5 because of his shoulder injury, according to sources. It is not known if Siemian or QB Austin Davis will serve as the backup to QB Paxton Lynch. Siemian may be able to play in the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Siemian's practice participation next week to see if he will only miss one week. Lynch had success when he replaced Siemian in Week 4 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues and daily fantasy leagues.

Browns | Cleveland on fifth QB in five games

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 17:31:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will be the fifth starting quarterback in as many games for the Browns. Going back to the last two weeks of last season, the Browns have started former QBs Johnny Manziel and Austin Davis and QBs Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Josh McCown (shoulder) and now Kessler. Cleveland is the second team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to start five different quarterbacks in five straight games, according to Elias.

Fantasy Tip: This is just further proof that the Browns' quarterback position cannot be trusted. The lack of consistency will be a damper to Josh Gordon's fantasy value when he does return, and it hurts the rest of the team, too. Corey Coleman, Gary Barnidge, Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson are still startable, but they're unlikely to reach their ceiling with an unproven rookie quarterback at the helm.

Browns | Austin Davis has chance to stick

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:44:41 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis has a chance to stick around with the team if the organization elects to deal or release QB Josh McCown during training camp and the preseason. Davis was signed to a two-year contract extension through 2017, but only $600,000 is guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Davis isn't likely to be anything more than the team's third-string quarterback if he sticks around.

Browns | Austin Davis struggles in Week 17

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:23:11 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis went 24-for-46 for 240 yards and two interceptions against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be with the Browns next season but probably will not have a chance to compete for the starting job during training camp since the team likely will add a quarterback during the offseason. Owners should be able to avoid him in drafts next season.

Browns | Johnny Manziel ruled out

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 09:42:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) has officially been ruled out for the season finale in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is in the league's concussion protocol. QB Austin Davis will start with QB Pat Devlin as the backup.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers have been a top-10 fantasy matchup for opposing quarterbacks all year with their weak secondary, but putting your faith in Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) doesn't make any sense on FantasyScore. Look elsewhere and pass up Cleveland's other skill offensive positions, too.

Browns | Austin Davis to start

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 08:43:13 -0800

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will start in place of QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) Sunday, Jan. 3, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't a good start on FantasyScore in the finale.

Browns | Johnny Manziel expected to sit out

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:16:49 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after going in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Dec. 30. QB Austin Davis is expected to start in Manziel's place.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel would've been a deep sleeper candidate on FantasyScore had he played, but you can forget about that now. Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is facing a vulnerable secondary for the Steelers, but that's not enough to want to have him in your daily lineups.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to start if cleared

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:16:51 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (concussion) will start in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers if he's cleared to play while in the concussion protocol. If Manziel can't go, QB Austin Davis would make his second start of the year ahead of QB Terrelle Pryor.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Manziel's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) progress in the next few days. If he looks good to play, he could be a deep sleeper worth considering on FantasyScore. The Steelers secondary is a big concern, and they made Ryan Mallett look great in Week 16. Plus, Manziel can make things happen with his legs, too.

Browns | Travis Coons likely to play

Sat, 19 Dec 2015 14:34:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns PK Travis Coons (groin) is likely to play Sunday, Dec. 20, and the team won't make a roster move for insurance. QB Austin Davis is the emergency backup kicker.

Fantasy Tip: Coons isn't a good kicking option against the Seattle Seahawks this week.

Browns | Austin Davis can't power offense

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 14:58:52 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis accounted for 231 yards in his first start Sunday, Dec. 6, as the Browns lost to the Cincinnati Bengals 37-3.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is starting mainly because the team doesn't want to give the reins over to Johnny Manziel. The Browns likely won't give Manziel the ball just yet, and this was a rough first team for Davis to face. Monitor his status for Week 14.

Browns | Johnny Manziel might start again

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 21:45:41 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could still start again at some point down the stretch this season despite the announcement Wednesday, Dec. 2, that QB Austin Davis would start in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals. "The decision was made, it's Austin for this week and I'm not going to go beyond that," head coach Mike Pettine said.

Fantasy Tip: Whether it is Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) or Manziel ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) starting, neither is particularly from a FantasyScore perspective.

Browns | Austin Davis to start

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 08:11:31 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will start Sunday, Dec. 6, against the Cincinnati Bengals. QB Johnny Manziel will serve as the backup.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't much of an option on FantasyScore this week.

Browns | Josh McCown going for more tests

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 08:58:39 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (clavicle) was in a sling after the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Nov. 30, and he will have more tests Tuesday, Dec. 1, after undergoing X-rays after the game. Head coach Mike Pettine didn't say whether QBs Austin Davis or Johnny Manziel would start next week if McCown can't play. Manziel did not play against the Ravens after McCown was injured.

Fantasy Tip: Either way you slice it, none of the Cleveland quarterbacks are attractive against the Cincinnati Bengals and their stout defense in Week 13, and you might want to downgrade the rest of Cleveland's offensive weapons depending on who winds up getting the start.

Browns | Austin Davis throws TD in relief

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 21:50:44 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis came on in relief in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Nov. 30, for the injured QB Josh McCown (collarbone) and in place of the punished QB Johnny Manziel. Davis completed seven of his 10 passes for 77 yards and a 42-yard touchdown to WR Travis Benjamin.

Fantasy Tip: Davis played well in relief and he could potentially start in Week 13 if the team continues to punish Manziel and McCown is unable to play.

Browns | Josh McCown checks out of game

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 20:08:29 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) left the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth quarter due to an apparent shoulder injury. QB Austin Davis checked in with QB Johnny Manziel dressed as the third-string quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: McCown was injured a drive or two ago on a hard him after a pass, but tried to gut it out and finish. It's unlikely he will be able to return.

Browns | Josh McCown starting

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 12:54:45 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will start in Week 12. QB Austin Davis will serve as backup, while QB Johnny Manziel will be Cleveland's No. 3 quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: A video recently surfaced showing Manziel partying, which very well may have played a role in Manziel's demotion. McCown ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was playing well before being sidelined by injuries this season. He may be rusty, but he's worth consideration on FantasyScore against a vulnerable Baltimore Ravens defense.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to start against PIT

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 09:14:18 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will be the starting quarterback for Week 10's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. QB Austin Davis will serve as the backup, with QB Josh McCown (ribs) inactive.

Fantasy Tip: Although Pittsburgh's pass defense has been mediocre at best this year, Manziel ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore and all other fantasy formats due to his inconsistency.

Browns | Austin Davis seeing starter reps

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 11:33:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Austin Davis will receive some repetitions with the first-team offense this week with QB Josh McCown (concussion) still in the concussion protocol. The Browns are preparing as if QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will start against the Tennessee Titans. Manziel is resting his elbow in portions of practice.

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Manziel ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) starting in Week 2 against the Titans, so the Browns are just doing their due diligence with Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap). Manziel continues to have his ups and downs and shouldn't be trusted as a FantasyScore sleeper QB, especially since he's not even fully healthy.

Rams | St. Louis intends to draft a QB

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:14:28 -0700

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said it's the team's intention to draft a quarterback in this year's draft, despite trading for QB Nick Foles in the offseason. Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are expected to be off the board when the Rams pick with the 10th overall pick in the first round, but the Rams could also trade up to take one of them. The Rams could also look at the second tier of quarterbacks in this class, which includes Baylor QB Bryce Petty, California-Los Angeles QB Brett Hundley, Oregon QB Sean Mannion and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. Petty indicated that he has a visit planned with St. Louis. Rams QBs Austin Davis and Case Keenum will compete for the backup job, and the loser might be on the street if the Rams draft another quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Foles upgrades the Rams offense, but unless St. Louis adds some more playmakers around him, he won't be anything more than a boring QB2 for fantasy purposes. It's highly unlikely that the quarterback the Rams draft takes over the starting job from Foles in 2015.
