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
Injury Johnny Manziel unlikely to play vs. Bucs
Misses practice again Wednesday
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 26, 6:12 pm

Cleveland Browns
Johnny Manziel missed practice again with a sore throwing elbow on Wednesday. Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine said there was no structural damage to the quarterback's elbow, but added it's looking like Manziel will miss Saturday's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per the team's official website. "He's still experiencing a little soreness," Pettine said. "It hasn't bounced back. Err on side of caution." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Josh McCown will enter the year as the team's starter with Johnny Manziel waiting in the wings to take over the starting gig. Now being kept out of action with a sore elbow, Manziel's fantasy stock remains relatively low for 2015. He has looked much better in the pocket and his effective scrambling capabilities add to his fantasy appeal if given a shot this year.


Despite strong play, Manziel not Browns' starter
Pettine says Josh McCown is "firmly the one"
By: John Canario | Fri Aug 21, 4:20 pm

Cleveland Browns
Browns coach Mike Pettine reminded reporters on Thursday that there is no chance Johnny Manziel beats out Josh McCown for the starting quarterback role. “I'm not going to sit here and talk about trying to stir up a quarterback controversy,” Pettine said after the Browns 11-10 loss to the Bills. “Josh is firmly the one.” McCown threw two interceptions against the Bills and was sacked three times before leaving the game with a sore right finger, on which X-rays were negative. Manziel completed 10 of 18 pass attempts for 118 yards with a 96-yard touchdown drive. He was sacked once and threw no interceptions. Pettine pointed out that McCown played against stiffer competition than Manziel, with Manziel facing mostly second- and third-team defenders. (SI)

FFToday's Take: Even though Manziel is the sexier fantasy option of the two QBs with his improvisational run-and-gun style of offense, his position on the Browns' depth chart eliminates any value he might have. Steer clear.
