Browns | Josh McCown showing leadership

Tue, 12 May 2015 14:01:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has taken control of the Cleveland offense and the locker room, according to new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. Head coach Mike Pettine has already said that McCown's experience has given him the advantage for the starting quarterback position.

Fantasy Tip: McCown isn't necessarily a lock for starting quarterback, but he seems to be well on his way to being under center in Week 1. His supporting cast is lackluster, however, as far as pass-catchers are concerned. He's comfortably in the backup fantasy quarterback conversation.

Browns | Josh McCown declared starter

Sun, 10 May 2015 13:48:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine has declared that QB Josh McCown will enter the 2015 season as the No. 1 quarterback on the team's depth chart. "We're not going to start talking competition," Pettine said. "Josh will more than likely be the starter going into camp, and in the foreseeable future I don't see that changing."

Fantasy Tip: McCown had long been favored to win the starting job but he is nothing more than a low-end QB2 option for fantasy owners with Cleveland's anemic offense. One of the reasons why Pettine might have named his starter so soon is to allow Johnny Manziel, who recently spent 10 weeks in a rehab facility, to focus on readjusting to life in the NFL instead of worrying about competing for the starting job.

Browns | Josh McCown commanding offense

Sat, 09 May 2015 19:22:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has "taken command" of the offense, offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said Saturday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: McCown has been the favorite to win the starting gig, and DeFilippo's comments do little to change that notion. Even as the starter, McCown is a low-end QB2 option at the helm of a lackluster Cleveland offense.

Browns | Josh McCown the favorite to start for Browns

Tue, 05 May 2015 09:18:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is the favorite to start training camp as the team's starting quarterback, with head coach Mike Pettine saying "it's fair to say." QB Johnny Manziel struggled last year as a rookie and was in rehab for 10 weeks. McCown is the most experienced quarterback the team has on roster.

Fantasy Tip: McCown will still face competition from Manziel and the other quarterbacks on roster later this summer, but McCown will have the leg up. With a mediocre receiving corps and largely unproven backfield, McCown, if he winds up winning the job, is a lackluster QB2 option for fantasy owners.

Browns | QB still an issue in Cleveland?

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:42:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine doesn't seem overly concerned with the Browns' current state at quarterback. Pettine said the quarterback position isn't the only position that wins football games. QBs Josh McCown, Johnny Manziel, Thaddeus Lewis and Connor Shaw are currently on Cleveland's roster.

Fantasy Tip: Pettine could very well start McCown or one of the other current quarterbacks for Week 1. The Browns seem to catching some flak for not drafting a quarterback, but Pettine doesn't seem phased by it. Whoever starts will be a fantasy backup.

Browns | Cleveland fine with Josh McCown as QB

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 15:33:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown could be the team's starting quarterback in 2015, because head coach Mike Pettine said he would be comfortable with McCown as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: McCown may be considered the leading candidate for the starting job at this point, but he will have to compete with Johnny Manziel for the job during training camp. McCown would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if becomes the starter.

Browns | Josh McCown expects to start

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:44:47 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is expecting to start after signing a three-year, $14 million deal last week that includes $6.25 million in guarantees and $6 million in incentives. McCown went just 1-10 as the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year. McCown will compete with QBs Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw this summer.

Fantasy Tip: As of right now, McCown looks like the most likely candidate to start for the Browns, with Manziel in a treatment facility for personal issues. If McCown wins the job in training camp, though he shouldn't be considered anything more than a weak QB2 for fantasy owners.

Browns | Josh McCown to work with Johnny Manziel

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:18:25 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will work with QB Johnny Manziel to help him get used to the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is obviously not the long-term solution in Cleveland, but he provides a bit of stability. His vow to work with Manziel also means the Browns have some faith in their troubled quarterback. McCown is a backup QB in most fantasy leagues, while Manziel remains an intriguing project with little fantasy value at the moment.
