Browns QB Johnny Manziel opens practice with starters

Johnny Manziel @JManziel2 opened the Browns' practice Monday morning as the starting quarterback, according to ESPN's Tony Grossi. While Manziel had previously taken reps with the starters, Monday marked the first time that Manziel was the starter going into the day. Head coach Mike Pettine previously tried to quash rumors of a quarterback controversy by naming Brian Hoyer @bhoyer6 the starting entering training camp, but appears to be giving Manziel at least a chance to earn the starting spot.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Browns have seemed pretty serious about Hoyer starting the season as their quarterback, so don't expect that to change because Manziel took the first snaps on one day of training camp. With the recent negative news out of Cleveland about Manziel's off-the-field habits, it's hard to imagine Pettine turning the reins over to him out of the gate. If Manziel does get playing time at some point this season, as many expect he will, he'll be an interesting QB2 in fantasy. Until then, he should stay on fantasy benches, if not the waiver wire.
