  • DeMarco Murray's 2015 Outlook

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer One of the biggest names in the free agency market was running back DeMarco Murray. Watching him run is something I’ve enjoyed doing over the last couple of years. He is explosive, powerful, and never wants to go down. His style of running could be why he’s battled with injuries throughout his carrier. That finally changed as he was able to play all 16 regular season games this past season. Well guess what happened when he played a full season? He had a career year. Murray carried the ball 392 times for 1,845 rushing yards and 13 Read More
  • Early 2015 QB Rankings

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Over the last couple of years, the NFL has changed as it has become a quarterback’s league. It’s no longer a defensive driven game as it once was. Nowadays many fans enjoy two high scoring offenses led by great quarterbacks that score a ton of points and put on a show. In fantasy terms, we appreciate fantasy points. Granted, stout defenses are still successful in the league, but putting points on the board is what it’s all about. In just a couple of months, most fantasy owners will be sitting in their living rooms staring at their Read More
  • Breaking Down the Rookie Class

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer The NFL Draft is now behind us and unlike past years, this draft was pretty straight forward without a ton of trades early on. I was anticipating a Chip Kelly blockbuster trade that would land him Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, but he stuck to his word and did not pull the trigger. In fact, the first trade came when the Chargers moved up to the 15th overall pick as they surrendered their 17th overall pick along with a fourth round pick and a 2016 fifth round pick. That’s when they drafted running back Melvin Gordon. We all Read More

Nelson returned to OTAs

Per ESPN Milwaukee, Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson returned to OTAs Wednesday. He took part of individual drills in his first practice back. He had hip surgery during the offseason and is expected to be for the start of training camp.

Lions concerned with Bell's health

According to the teams’ website, Detroit Lions aren't sure if running back Joique Bell will be in shape by training camp. "Really, I think your biggest concern is just, is he going to be able to get in the shape that you wanted to at the beginning of camp," OC Joe Lombardi said. "But we’ll be careful with him and smart and ramp him up as we go." Bell had surgery on his knee and Achilles this offseason, and has not participated in any offseason program. There was a lot of buzz surrounding Bell after the team parted ways with Reggie Bush, but if he can’t get on the field then he won’t be able to take advantage of the opportunity. Meanwhile, rookie Ameer Abdullah has been working with the starters and making a positive impression. We’d be apprehensive taking Bell at his current fifth round ADP.

Maclin dealing with imflammation

Chiefs’ wide receiver Jeremy Maclin sat out Wednesday's OTA and is considered day-to-day with a foot inflammation, per Terez Paylor on Twitter. For now it doesn’t appear serious, but it’s worth keeping tabs on. We will keep you posted on his status as we hear it. Maclin no longer offers the upside he did in Chip Kelly’s offense, but should remain a viable fantasy option.

Palmer cleared for 11-on-11 drills

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (ACL) has been cleared to participate in 11-on-11 drills, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. I feel great," said Palmer. "I probably never worked this hard in my life and I've always worked hard. I feel as fast as I've ever been, as quick as I've ever been, I'm stronger than I've ever been just because I've been going since late November." Palmer was having a very good season last year prior to injuring his knee in Week 10 that kept him out for the season. He can be viewed as a QB2 this upcoming season, but durability can be a concern. 

Parker expected to miss 8-12 weeks

Dolphins’ rookie receiver DeVante Parker is expected to miss 8-12 weeks after undergoing foot surgery. He had a procedure to replace a small screw with a larger screw in the fifth metatarsal, which is not a long-term concern. Julio Jones and Demaryius Thomas both had this procedure and have flourished in the NFL. If Parker goes the full 12 weeks, he should be ready to roll Week 1, but there’s a good chance he’d be behind Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings until he gets up to speed. He remains a first round pick in rookie only drafts.

Newton gets $103.8 million contract extension

Panthers signed QB Cam Newton to a five-year, $103.8 million contract extension. The deal includes $60 million guaranteed, and $67.6 million over the first three years. As far as fantasy is concerned, he remains a No. 1 fantasy quarterback and offers a dual threat with his legs and arm. This just means the Panthers wanted to lock the 26 year old up long term.

AP returns to Vikings

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has returned to the team and will attend Tuesday's OTAs, per Josina Anderson. “Basically it's time for me to come in and test the waters and re-familiarize myself with our offense and the direction they're trying to go in," he said. It appears that he didn't have much leverage after all. Peterson quickly becomes a top five fantasy back and could be drafted in the early parts of the first round. Age can be somewhat a concern, but then again he did get rest last season.
