  Browns | Johnny Manziel could play in Week 8    Tue Oct 21, 02:05 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could see some action in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Mike Pettine. However, Pettine said Monday, Oct. 20, that QB Brian Hoyer is still firmly entrenched as the team's starting quarterback. Hoyer completed a career-low 39 percent of his attempts against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 and threw for 215 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. He has completed only 41.3 percent of his passes in the last two weeks. Pettine blamed Hoyer's poor performance on the team's inability to run and set up play-action.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to be alert to this situation. The Manziel era is coming soon for the Browns. The 2014 first-round pick will get his shot as the starter if Hoyer continues to struggle.

  Browns | Terrance West benched    Tue Oct 21, 09:37 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West was benched Sunday, Oct. 19, after failing to pick up a first down in two short-yardage situations. He had room to run on both carries but danced in the hole on one carry and ran into his lineman on the other.

Footballguys view: West is not the best rookie back on the Browns roster--even though he was their second-round pick. Isaiah Crowell has been much more impressive this season, and he could continue to be featured behind Ben Tate.

  Browns | CLE re-evaluating RB rotation    Tue Oct 21, 09:36 AM

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West were held to 69 yards on 33 carries in Week 7, and head coach Mike Pettine suggested a change was coming for the trio. 'We'll have a discussion this week as to how to best rotate those guys,' Pettine said.

Footballguys view: The Browns were running the ball effectively...until Sunday against the Jaguars. We'll see if they can get the train back on the tracks.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer struggled in Week 7    Mon Oct 20, 06:03 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed only 39 percent of his passes in the team's Week 7 game, which is the worst completion percentage by any quarterback this season.

Footballguys view: Let's face it, Hoyer is no long-term answer for the Browns. We should see Johnny Manziel as the starter soon enough. Hoyer needs to turn things around quickly, or he's going to get the boot.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer still starting QB    Mon Oct 20, 04:33 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer is still the team's starting quarterback even though he struggled in Week 7, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who can carry that third quarterback should go ahead and pick up Johnny Manziel now. It was only a matter of time before he saw the field this year. Hoyer hasn't been blowing anybody away with his production, and Manziel could be the jolt this passing game needs. And oh yeah....it's not that long before Josh Gordon comes back.

  Browns | Alex Mack done for the year    Fri Oct 17, 12:12 PM

Cleveland Browns C Alex Mack (leg) will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a broken left fibula Thursday, Oct. 16. Mack was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 17. Mack could also be dealing with ligament damage in his left, although it hasn't officially been disclosed. OT John Greco will slide from right guard to center in Mack's absence, and the team promoted OG Ryan Seymour from the practice squad to take Mack's spot on the roster.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much this affects the Browns top-notch running game. Mack is one of the best two of three centers in the game, but the whole Browns line has been playing well this year.

  Browns | Terrance West was healthy scratch    Sun Oct 12, 06:37 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West was a healthy scratch for Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, head coach Mike Pettine said Sunday, Oct. 12. The absence was not related to any kind of infraction, and Pettine said West needs to improve, and it comes down to practice.

Footballguys view: West is quickly falling on dynasty draft rankings, and he isn't worth a redraft spot right now. The Browns running game is so good that we should be ready to pick West back up if and when he gets back in the rotation, but for now that seems far away - although Isaiah Crowell's ball security issues are something to watch.
