Browns head coach Mike Pettine said QB Johnny Manziel's reps with the first team Monday was "part of plan," and is no reflection on QB Brian Hoyer who is expected to start in Detroit, but is not 100% certain he will.
If you read the note we have in the previous Manziel post here at Fantasy Alarm we told you not to blow things out off proportion. Pettine doesn't want a big media circus regarding his starting quarterback but he also wants to keep some sort of a fire lit under Hoyer's ass so he doesn't get complacent. The Fantasy Alarm NFL Draft Guide has Johnny Football ranked 34th amongst quarterbacks and that isn't going to climb just by getting a few first-team reps.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
