Browns | Johnny Manziel's timetable unclear

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 16:24:37 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's (elbow) status for the week leading up to the preseason finale against the Chicago Bears remains unclear, head coach Mike Pettine said Sunday, Aug. 30. "I'll get the medical update today, just see what their plan is for him, when to start throwing again," Pettine said. "Given that the MRI was negative, we think rest will be the answer. To me, there's no need to think beyond that until we get to that point, and if it looks like it is more than that, then we'll address it appropriately."

Fantasy Tip: Josh McCown has little competition for the starting job at this point, but the lack of firepower weapons in Cleveland and his own limitations make him a low-end QB2.

Browns | Johnny Manziel to miss rest of preseason

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:21:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will miss the final two preseason games because of his sore elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel's injury is not consider a long-term concern, but he likely will enter the regular season as the No. 2 quarterback. He should not be a fantasy option this season unless he is starting at some point.

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:22:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) has no structural damage in his injured elbow. Head coach Mike Pettine said Manziel has been dealing with the sore elbow since high school.

Fantasy Tip: Again, unless Josh McCown suffers an injury or plays consistently poorly, Manziel isn't worth drafting this year.

Browns | Johnny Manziel probably won't play

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:05:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) isn't expected to play versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday, Aug. 29, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is still dealing with elbow soreness and the Browns are taking a cautious approach.

Fantasy Tip: There's no reason to risky any further damage in the preseason, especially with something nagging like Manziel's elbow soreness. Unless Josh McCown gets injured or doesn't play well for an extended period, Manziel doesn't have a lot of fantasy value this year.

Browns | Johnny Manziel will keep throwing motion

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:29:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will keep his current throwing motion even though the team believes that is what is causing the soreness in his elbow. Manziel did not throw during practice Monday, Aug. 24, so he could rest his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel could rest his elbow for a few more days but he should be fine moving forward. Manziel has not been ruled out for the starting job but is considered a heavy underdog for the job. Owners should not select Manziel in any fantasy league.

Browns | Johnny Manziel still the backup

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 18:43:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is still the No. 2 quarterback behind QB Josh McCown, head coach Mike Pettine said Friday, Aug. 21. "We don't want to get too wrapped up in the big picture stuff," Pettine said. "We feel good about where Johnny is as the No. 2 and we feel good about where Josh is with the No. 1 and also understand that a large part of it is a supporting cast thing. Our thoughts on the quarterback picture are the same this morning as they were going into last night.''

Fantasy Tip: Unless McCown absolutely implodes in the next preseason game, Manziel isn't going to be the starter to open the year. Manziel doesn't need to be drafted at this point in any fantasy format.

Browns | Johnny Manziel looking to impress

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:14:01 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel said he is looking to make an impression on the coaching staff with his performances this preseason. "I'm still going out trying to play my best and make an impression," Manziel said. "That's what I want to do. I want to have these guys go into the film tomorrow and turn on the tape and say, 'This guy's really doing things right and this guy's really fighting hard to pick things up and make some plays.'"

Fantasy Tip: Manziel probably will start the season as the backup to Josh McCown unless McCown suffers an injury. Owners should not consider Manziel as an option in any fantasy league.
