| One of the least relevant fantasy football battles comes to us from the great state of Ohio. Unless you think the Cleveland Cavalier magic will rub off on the 2016 Browns, the winner of the quarterback battle in Cleveland shouldn’t make a lick of difference to fantasy owners. Griffin III, the former Washington Redskin savior was banished by his former team last year after he apparently forgot how to play any facet of the quarterback position. Snatched up by an equally desperate Browns team, Griffin enters the off-season program atop the depth chart. Whether he stays there remains to be seen. OTA reports from May and June have been less than glowing, and with veteran McCown ready to take over, Griffin has a mighty short leash going into training camp.
Griffin, while offering tremendous physical gifts, lacks something between the ears to be great again. A hallow shell of his former self, it will take an absolute miracle from new head coach Hue Jackson to coax production out of Griffin again. Cleveland’s quarterback of the future is wandering around a college campus right now, so from a fantasy perspective, do yourself a favor and look away from this train wreck.
|Browns to make a run at Garoppolo?|
Hue Jackson wants to improve the QB position

|Sources say the Browns' interest in Jimmy Garoppolo is real and that they'll try to trade for him depending on how their draft evaluations go over the next five weeks or so.
If the Browns decide to draft Mitch Trubisky or Deshaun Watson in the first round, they'll be much less likely to pursue the Patriots' backup -- but wouldn't rule it out. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: It appears Cody Kessler and Robert Griffin III will have some company this upcoming season as head coach Hue Jackson seems intent on adding a quarterback through the draft or free agency. The Browns have the No.1 and No.12 pick in the draft giving them enough fire power to pull off a trade if need be.
