Fantasy Impact:

Taylor Gabriel, Miles Austin and Travis Benjamin all get a small bump, but this is not an attractive matchup against a good Bengals secondary and weather may be an issue. Gabriel is our highest-ranked Browns receiver (#43 in standard formats).

Browns WRs Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, and Travis Benjamin are locks, while Nate Burleson is too valuable to release after Josh Gordon was suspended for the season by the NFL. Charles Johnson is attempting to hang onto his job under heavy pushes from undrafted rookies Taylor Gabriel and Willie Snead, with Marlon Moore a longshot.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson has gotten a bit of hype as a potential sleeper with Josh Gordon out, but he's still fighting for a roster spot.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin had a big day, catching a deep throw from QB Johnny Manziel and making several other catches. Benjamin is coming back from ACL surgery, and his role in the offense seems to be growing -- especially when Josh Gordon is out.

Johnny Manziel gets first team reps

Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel has taken his first snaps in training camp with Cleveland's starters.

Manziel is trying to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job. The former Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M had worked exclusively with Cleveland's second-string offense until Monday.

On his first play of 11-on-11 drills, Manziel completed a 40-yard pass to Travis Benjamin. The wide receiver came back to grab the underthrown ball. Moments later, Manziel's tipped pass intended for Josh Gordon was intercepted by safety Donte Whitner.

Browns coach Mike Pettine had promised he would give Manziel time with the first-unit offense, and he decided to do it as the team prepares for Saturday's exhibition opener in Detroit.

Fantasy Impact:

Reports yesterday said Manziel was closing the gap on Hoyer, but still other writers felt that was media driven and not really the case at all. It's not uncommon for a different QBs on the depth chart to get reps with the first team.

One of the NFL's most dangerous punt returners is done for the year. Browns return man Travis Benjamin will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL, coach Rob Chudzinski announced on Monday.

"Travis obviously is a big part of what we do and has been in terms of the return game," Chudzinski said. "It's a tough loss for us, but we'll have some guys step up."

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns D/ST has less upside with Benjamin done for the season. He was always a threat to bring one back.

Travis Benjamin’s role could expand with Josh Gordon suspended. As minicamp closed, the 5-10, 175-pound Benjamin, 23, received praise from quarterback Brandon Weeden.

“Travis had at least as many catches if not more than anybody in camp,” Weeden said. “His route running is phenomenal, probably because he’s so fast. Guys have to honor him running by them. He’s been getting in and out of breaks so well. Whether it’s in-breaking routes or out-breaking routes, he’s really found a knack of getting separation and giving me a chance to complete some balls. He’s had a lot of catches this camp. He’s stuck out.”
