Starting off this list is Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. Manziel was the 2nd quarterback taken in this year’s draft, as the Browns took him with the 22nd overall pick.

Everyone knows how good of a player Manziel was in college. Manziel was the first freshmen to ever win the Heisman Memorial Trophy, and was one of the most exciting college football players of all-time. While his team struggled at times, Manziel was always shining, scoring 46 overall touchdowns last year alone.

A controversial character, Manziel’s antics and poor play made him lose the starting job this preseason to Brian Hoyer. However, I think that will change fairly soon. Cleveland loves Manziel, and will demand that he starts if Hoyer makes even one mistake. That’s bound to happen fairly, considering the Browns play the Saints and Ravens in Week 2 and Week 3.

While he isn’t currently a starter, he will be. If you can afford to keep him on your bench, I would advise you to do so, because you never know what Manziel is going to do.
