Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) said he's been fully cleared to participate in training camp.
Hoyer being cleared is step one in the learning process for Johnny Manziel as the Browns would prefer the veteran presence under center to start the season. Is it possible that Hoyer holds the job all year? Probably not. As I stated in the 2014 Fantasy Alarm Football Draft Guide, "this offense is going to have some serious struggles this year and the Browns dont want to put Manziel through the nightmarish beginning of the year to open his career. If he takes over the team at 0-6, then hes a hero who will do what he can given the circumstances and everything just gets chalked up to experience. But if hes the one starting the season at 0-6, then too much focus and too much undeserved blame is going to fall on him and it will impact his career negatively." ANALYST: Howard Bender
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
