FF Today's Take:Josh McCown has been placed on IR with a broken collarbone. Manziel is being punished for reportedly lying to coaches about his off-field activities during the bye week. Davis went 7-for-10 for 77 yards, and a 42-yard TD in relief of McCown last week. He's a QB2 against the Bengals.

Browns will chose between Austin Davis, Johnny Manziel
FF Today's Take:Mike Pettine was not very forthcoming with an answer about who he'll start in Week 13, though after his demotion punichment for Week 12, it might make sense to give Manziel a shot to earn back the trust of the brass. "We'll watch the tape and discuss that (Tuesday),'' said Pettine. "I'm not prepared to answer that just yet."

Josh McCown to start Week 12
Johnny Manziel has been replaced by Josh McCown as the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, the team announced Tuesday. Two weeks after being named the team's starter, Manziel has been demoted to third string for Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens after social media posts surfaced this week that showed Manziel allegedly partying last weekend in Texas.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Manziel 10-week rehab stint this off-season apparently didn't cure his partying ways. Manziel posted a 24-point fantasy day against the Steelers in Week 10 but will give way to McCown. The Browns face the Ravens on Monday Night Football this week.

Josh McCown (ribs) benched; team on Week 11 bye

"Scoopage: #Browns are making the switch to Johnny Manziel as starting QB for rest of the season @NFLonFOX"(Twitter)
FF Today's Take:It appears the era of Johnny Football has officially begun. In what appears to be a lost season, with Josh McCown nursing a rib injury and the team on a Week 11 bye, this makes some sense. Manziel won't be deployable in standard formats, but two-QB leagues and DFS competitors should take heed.
