Browns | No package for Johnny Manziel

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:27:02 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel does not have a special offensive package in the game plan for Week 2, and would run the normal offense if he sees playing time, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Fantasy Tip: There is no guarantee that Manziel will receive playing time this week, so owners in all leagues should avoid him.

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.

Browns | Johnny Manziel may play Week 2

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 10:43:25 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could receive some playing time Week 2, according to head coach Mike Pettine. The team has a special package for Manziel in their offense.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel could get on the field for his first professional game Week 2, but likely will not get enough plays to have much fantasy value. Owners should avoid using Manziel at this point.

Browns | Never considered Johnny Manziel

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 23:55:54 -0700

Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine gave an in-game vote of confidence to Browns QB Brian Hoyer when he told the media following the game that inserting QB Johnny Manziel was never an option. The Browns trailed the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-3 at halftime but nearly upset the Steelers thanks to a strong second half. Pittsburgh won 30-27 in overtime.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer will have to throw a lot to keep up with the Saints next week. He's a mid-to-low QB2 option on FantasyScore.

Browns | Johnny Manziel might see some action

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 09:23:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel could see some action in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it will come down to a "feel thing" per the coaching staff. Head coach Mike Pettine said Manziel has a package of plays specific for him and Manziel has prepared this week to play. Pettine said Manziel and QB Brian Hoyer will not be alternating series.

Fantasy Tip: Even at $4,500 in FantasyScore, Manziel should not be a consideration when building out your fantasy football team for Week 1. Hoyer, at $5,000 salary, isn't a better option, either. Stay away from this situation until it plays out and gives you plenty of reasons to consider it.

Pettine and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan have discussed the possibility. "Kyle and I have talked about it. It's a possibility. We have a package of plays for him. It won't be alternating series, it'll be a 'feel' thing," Pettine said.

Browns | Dick LeBeau expects to see Johnny Manziel

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 16:56:09 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is expected to play in the regular season debut in Week 1, at least that's what defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is planning. "I'll be very surprised if we don't see him," LeBeau said Friday, Sept. 5. "He was one of the top football players in the nation. You look at his offensive numbers. It's not a magic wand he waves out there. He's creating situations, making plays. They're going to want to bring him along and give him some game action. I'm sure of that."

Browns | No quick hook for Brian Hoyer

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 13:11:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer won't receive a quick hook in the team's Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in favor of QB Johnny Manziel, according to head coach Mike Pettine. However, Hoyer understands that he'll need to produce to hold off a quarterback change during the year.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is a low-end QB2 in standard leagues. He's a cheap option in daily games for Week 1, but his matchup against a tough division opponent isn't attractive with limited weapons at his disposal.
