2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Manziel will start the season behind Brian Hoyer, but we suspect that the arrangement will be a temporary one. In any case, Manziel would be a much more exciting fantasy prospect if it weren't for Jos...

Manziel completed 10-of-15 passes for 85 yards, adding one carry for a seven-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Coach Mike Pettine indicated Friday morning that it's possible Manziel could be featured in a two-QB set "down the road," NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Manziel was relegated to backup duties when the Browns officially made the announcement Wednesday morning, but that doesn't mean he won't see meaningful snaps. He'll likely be used mostly in designed run sets, but could occasionally be used to air it out and take the defense by surprise. Until Manziel takes over the starting job, however, this body of work probably won't be enough to warrant much fantasy consideration outside of dynasty formats.
Brian Hoyer was named the Browns' starting quarterback Wednesday morning over Manziel by coach Mike Pettine, ESPN reports.

Manziel completed 7-of-16 passes for 65 yards and one touchdown, while adding one rush for negative one yard in Monday's preseason game against the Redskins.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This was likely one of Manziel's last chances to deserve he should be the starting quarterback in Cleveland, and he did little to prove that he should be No. 1 on the depth chart. Although he didn't turn the ball over, he was sacked three times and was unable to work much magic with his legs. The rookie did throw a touchdown to running back Dion Lewis, but it was on a short pass in which the back did most of the work. Manziel also made noise for the wrong reasons, as an obscene gesture toward the Washington bench quickly caught fire on social media and will surely be a main topic of conversation this week. His main competition -- Brian Hoyer -- completed just 2-of-6 passes for 16 yards, but with neither candidate truly standing out, it now appears that Hoyer will win the job by default. The Cleveland coaching staff is expected to get together at some point Tuesday to officially announce the Week 1 starter, and Manziel's chances currently aren't looking good. There may still be time left in the preseason for a turnaround, but he'd have to perform drastically better if he's even going to be considered.
Coach Mike Pettine indicated that he plans to meet with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, quarterback coach Dowell Loggains and GM Ray Farmer on Tuesday to name the Browns' starter (between Manziel and Brian Hoyer) at QB, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Manziel was late to a team meeting Monday, but his tardiness was not a factor in coach Mike Pettine's decision to name Brian Hoyer the starter for the team's second preseason game against the Washington Redskins, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Manziel and some fellow rookies apparently misread a schedule that called for a five-minute meeting Monday morning, team sources said. The players were "a couple minutes" late. Pettine handled the matter internally. Any other player and this wouldn't even have been reported. In fact, the other tardy players were not identified. Even though he's not starting next Monday's game, Manziel is expected to get as many first-team reps as Hoyer.
Manziel won't get the starting nod in Monday's preseason game against the Redskins, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Manziel is still expected to split first-team reps with Brian Hoyer, but Hoyer will take the field before the rookie Monday night. The news is a bit unexpected, as many anticipated that Manziel would start for the Browns in the contest. Nonetheless, the No. 22 overall pick should see enough time with the starters to get a chance to prove he's still capable of earning the starting gig. Based on this news, however, it still seems as if Hoyer has the edge in the Browns' quarterback competition, though a strong effort on Manziel's part Monday would no doubt support his case for the assignment.
