Browns | Key Browns sitting out

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 15:44:47 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown, RB Isaiah Crowell and WR Andrew Hawkins are among those not playing Thursday, Sept. 3, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: This is the route most teams are taking tonight -- not playing their key starters. Consider Crowell a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3. Hawkins is a PPR sleeper at wide receiver while McCown should be drafted as a backup.

Browns | Josh McCown's finger checks out

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 17:10:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (finger) won't miss any time after doctors checked out his finger and determined there were no problems, head coach Mike Pettine said Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: McCown didn't look great in the last preseason game, but Pettine has already said he is still firmly entrenched as the starter. That being said, McCown is nothing more than a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

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 | Josh McCown not named starter yet

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:25:22 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is considered the team's No. 1 quarterback at this point but has not been named the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to head coach Mike Pettine. McCown threw two interceptions in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20, while QB Johnny Manziel threw one touchdown during his time running the offense.

Fantasy Tip: McCown probably will be named the starter unless he really struggles in the next preseason game or if he suffers an injury. McCown probably will not be a strong fantasy option in 2015 and should only be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Browns | Josh McCown should be fine

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 12:32:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (finger) should he fine after suffering a finger injury during the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: McCown will be the starting quarterback Week 1 if he does not suffer an injury during a preseason game. McCown likely will not produce big passing numbers this season and probably should not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Browns | Josh McCown jams finger

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 21:02:09 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (finger) jammed his right ring finger in a preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 20. X-rays were negative, and he said he is unsure if he will undergo an MRI.

Fantasy Tip: The injury doesn't seem too serious, but even as the starter in Cleveland, he is nothing more than a low-end QB2.

Browns | Josh McCown still the starter

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:06:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is still considered the team's starting quarterback even though QB Johnny Manziel played well in the first preseason game, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: McCown likely will open the season as the starting quarterback unless he suffers an injury during the preseason. McCown probably will not post big stats this season and should only be considered as a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Browns | No QB competition in Cleveland

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 12:51:56 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has firm control of the starting quarterback job over QB Johnny Manziel, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said McCown has received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has not officially been named the starter for Week 1, but it looks like only an injury would change the decision. McCown likely will not post big numbers this season and should not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Browns | QB situation in CLE unchanged

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 14:44:54 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown had some real nice passes during practice Monday, Aug. 10, but QB Johnny Manziel continues to look more focused, and he also saw some time with the starters Monday.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a very fluid situation during training camp and through the preseason. McCown currently leads, but it could change based on how these two QBs look in game action. Either way, neither QB is worth more than mediocre QB2 fantasy value.
