2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Cleveland offense might very well be the black hole of fantasy production in 2015. Leading the way is the very undynamic duo of McCown and Manziel. In McCown you have a career back-up who is on his seventh team in 12 years. With Manziel you have a walking punchline that in serious danger of flaming out of the NFL in only his second year.

McCown turned an eight-game stretch with the Bears in 2013 into a big contract with the Bucs, but while in Tampa, displayed the mistake prone tendencies and inaccuracy that has made him a second and third stringer. I might be a little more bullish on McCown if he had Josh Gordon, but as it stands, Gordon will be catching as many passes in the NFL this year as I will, and the rest of the receivers in Cleveland are castoffs or possession types that won’t make many plays down the field. Even with Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson in Tampa, McCown completed only 56% of his passes and threw three more interceptions than touchdowns. I think Cleveland’s defense and run game will be great, leaving the passing game to be very vanilla and safe, meaning McCown won’t have the luxury of volume to help his stats. His starting spot is tenuous at best with Manziel behind him, so even in two quarterback leagues I wouldn’t give McCown much of a serious consideration.

News From The Past 90 Days
Browns name Austin Davis the starter for Wk 13
Manziel will be the backup
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 2, 11:30 am

Cleveland Browns
Johnny Manziel isn't out of the doghouse just yet. Browns coach Mike Pettine on Wednesday morning named Austin Davis the starter over Manziel for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals at FirstEnergy Stadium. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday'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.


Injury Josh McCown has possible broken collarbone
Browns will chose between Austin Davis, Johnny Manziel
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Dec 1, 11:15 am

Cleveland Browns
Josh McCown is probably done for the season with a possible broken collarbone, a league source told cleveland.com. Options include veteran QB Austin Davis or the embattled Johnny Manziel. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday'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."


Johnny Manziel loses starting QB job
Josh McCown to start Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 24, 3:45 pm

Cleveland Browns
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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Johnny Manziel named Browns' starter
Josh McCown (ribs) benched; team on Week 11 bye
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 17, 11:35 am

Cleveland Browns
Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) on Twitter: "Scoopage: #Browns are making the switch to Johnny Manziel as starting QB for rest of the season @NFLonFOX" (Twitter)

FFToday'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.
