He played pretty well against a far superior defense (albeit without Kam but still) last week and he's only $5500. Plus I'm a die hard Rams fan so I'm just expecting him to play well anyway lol

No one else is jumping on Manziel? He is dirt cheap so you can stack the rest of your team, he is also facing the Titans who have arguably the worst defense in the NFL, and Manziel can get rushing TDs and yardage which are more valuable than passing.

It's a boom or bust pick I guess but it's a good one.

im staying away from manziel for now, he looked like trash last week and there are better options in his price range.

nick foles for example is only $300 more expensive (on DK)

He scored 13.78 against the Jets who have a top-5 defense, Revis included, and he didn't even play the whole game, McCown started and got hurt.

He really didn't look that bad. He had some careless fumbles but those don't effect scoring on DK.


This is in Cleveland, against a bottom-5 defense. Furthermore Mariota may actually put up some points which would force Manziel to do things and not the RBs. Really this is the perfect match up for him and he is about as cheap as it gets.

did you actually watch any of the game? manziel looked like trash

most of manziels 13.78 came off one big play. take away that one touchdown bomb he would have had like 130 yards with zero TD and three turnovers.

the titans defense absolutely shitted on jameis last week, why wont they be able to do the same thing to manziel?

that said, i wouldnt be that surprised if manziel had a decent game, and if he has a few decent games in a row i might considering starting him in the future, but based on what i saw last weekend i think there are much stronger options available.

Id hardly say the Titans are the worst defense in the league. Last week that had 4 sacks and 2 int's. Regardless of the opponent, Id say thats pretty good. I actually picked them up for my defense this week(I usually change defense week to week) because they're playing the Browns.

I didn't watch the game but I saw the highlights and the from everything I have read the vibe on him is "looks improved" which doesn't sound like much but he is getting people's hopes up at least.

Winston still had 2 TDs on the Titans, and just as many passing yards as Mariota...It looks like Winston scored more than Manziel vs Jets.



What I really hoping for from Manziel is a long TD run...which he is more than capable of against this defense. This Titan's defense is BAD, can you even name a player? They signed Orakpo, I think that is the only defender they have that has sniffed a ProBowl. They lost their star CB Verner.

If Manziel just can do...

200 yards passing, 1 passing TD, 2 INTs
50 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD

^^^ that is 21 points...then the rest of my roster is Julio, AJ Green, stud, etc

I dont think those stats are out of the realm of possibility, but manziel is more likely to get decapitated attempting a big TD run than actually scoring on one. He is an incredibly reckless player and every defense is salivating for a chance to tee off on him.
