Miles Austin, WR, PHI3/30/2015 2:02:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Miles Austin just has to pass a physical before he'll be signed by the Eagles, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Austin had a decent season before being injured with 47 receptions, 568 yards and two touchdowns, but he isn't the long-term answer to the Eagles need at wideout opposite Jordan Matthews.
Jarrett Boykin, WR, CAR3/27/2015 3:45:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin signed a one-year deal with Carolina.
Insight: Boykin was beaten out by Davante Adams for the No. 3 receiver spot in Green Bay. He could win the job opposite Kevin Benjamin, currently owned by Jerricho Cotchery, but that still might not make him fantasy worthy.
Jay Cutler, QB, CHI3/27/2015 10:28:00 AM
Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be in an open competition with Jimmy Clausen, according to new head coach John Fox.
Insight: Cutler should be able to beat out Clause for the starting role, but obviously there are no guarantees. Whoever wins the job, still has a few weapons at his disposal despite the loss of Brandon Marshall. Alshon Jeffery is a rising star, Marquess Wilson is talented and he can always throw the ball to Matt Forte, the best receiving back in football.
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, PIT3/27/2015 10:24:00 AM
Description: Steelers receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey re-signed with the team.
Insight: Barring numerous injures at the position, DHB has no fantasy value. The seventh-overall pick of the 2009 draft (by Oakland) and never developed as hoped. Ignore him on draft day.
Terence Newman, CB, MIN3/27/2015 10:22:00 AM
Description: Cornerback Terence Newman has signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
Insight: The Vikings gave up just 3,572 yards through the air last season which was seventh-best, but did yield 26 touchdown passes. New head coach Mike Zimmer knows Newman from his days in Cincinnati. He's not the player he once was, but he can still be effective.
Jared Allen, DE, CHI3/27/2015 9:55:00 AM
Description: Bears defensive end Jared Allen might have some trouble adapting to the Bears new 3-4 defense, according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times.
Insight: Allen has always played in a 4-3 and isn't really big enough to play DE in a 3-4. He could end up being in for a passing down package instead of every down after he posted a career-worst 5.5 sacks last season.
Kiko Alonso, LB, PHI3/26/2015 10:06:00 AM
Description: New Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso (torn ACL) is expected to be ready for OTAs, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
Insight: The Eagles base defense wasn't very good last season, but their special teams made them a fantasy delight. A healthy Alonso alongside Mychal Kendricks will improve their defense, but that probably won't drastically change their fantasy value.
Victor Cruz, WR, NYG3/25/2015 3:21:00 PM
Description: Coach Tom Coughlin suggested that wide receiver Victor Cruz could miss the beginning of the 2015 season according to the New York Post.
Insight: It is the Giants goal to have him ready, but if he isn't, Odell Beckham proved he can be the team's No. 1 recever. Cruz is trying to return from a patellar tendon tear which is supposedly even tougher to come back from than ACL tears.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP3/25/2015 3:18:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson is recovering from offseason hip surgery according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Nelson should be fine in six-to-eight weeks as the operation was simply to "clean it up". Based on his numbers, it didn't appear Nelson needed to get his hip "cleaned up" as he set a team record with 1,519 receiving yards and made his first Pro Bowl. Nelson will be one of the first receivers taken this fall.
Frank Gore, RB, IND3/24/2015 3:51:00 PM
Description: Head coach Chuck Pagano called running back Frank Gore his every-down back.
Insight: That's bad news for backups Dan Herron, Vick Ballard and Zurlon Tipton. The 2014 Colts backs had just nine rushing touchdowns and Gore could get that by himself next season. Though Gore may still be able to carry the load, remember the Colts offense is Andrew Luck centric.
Sam Bradford, QB, PHI3/24/2015 3:40:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Sam Bradford was the ""best young QB" the Eagles scouted coming out of college, according to Eagles owner Jeff Lurie, "probably since Peyton Manning."
Insight: That said, it doesn't matter how good a quarterback he is, if he can't stay on the field. The Eagles could be putting up smoke screens to cover their continued interest for Marcus Mariota.
Travis Kelce, TE, KAN3/24/2015 3:35:00 PM
Description: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce's head coach Andy Reid, expects "more and better" from his tight end in 2015, according to Will Brinson.
Insight: Kelce had 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014 and "more and better" would put him in elite TE status. having a better deep weapon in Jeremy Maclin could open the middle more, so we think its possible that he can build on last season.
LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI3/24/2015 3:32:00 PM
Description: LeSean McCoy new head coach, Rex Ryan said he's play in third downs along with Fred Jackson.
Insight: That's good news for fantasy owners as McCoy lost some value last season to Darren Sproles. McCoy is a great screen pass receiver and the Bills should use him there as well as running the ball if they and fantasy owners are to get their money's worth.
Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN3/20/2015 1:30:00 PM
Description: Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson's agent refused a dinner meeting with Vikings management, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo.
Insight: It appears the Vikings and Peterson aren't going to be able to work this one out. Peterson can still run, but he obviously doesn't want to do it in Minnesota anymore. Arizona? Dallas?
Bernard Pierce, RB, JAC3/19/2015 4:36:00 PM
Description: The Jags have claimed waived running back Bernard Pierce.
Insight: Pierce was arrested for a DUI early Wednesday morning, and Baltimore made a quick decision to rid themselves of him. Pierce ran for just 366 yards at a 3.9 ypc pace. He'll be hard-pressed to make the Week 1 roster.
Dwayne Bowe, WR, CLE3/19/2015 2:32:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, released by the Chiefs after they signed Jeremy Maclin, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Bowe's fantasy value may just go from low to lower with this move. In Kansas City at least he had a solid, though unspectacular, quarterback in Alex Smith while he'll now be catching passes from either Josh McCown or Johnny Manziel. In either case it doesn't bode well for Bowe who caught zero touchdown passes last season.
Bernard Pierce, RB, BAL3/18/2015 2:52:00 PM
Description: The Ravens have waived running back Bernard Pierce.
Insight: He was arrested for a DUI early Wednesday morning, and Baltimore made a quick decision to rid themselves of him. Pierce should be able to find work somewhere as a backup.
Percy Harvin, WR, BUF3/18/2015 2:04:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Percy Harvin has officially signed with the Bills.
Insight: It is a one-year, $6 million deal. This is one of the worst landing spots for Harvin from a fantasy perspective.
Charles Clay, TE, MIA3/17/2015 10:51:00 PM
Description: Dolphins tight end Charles Clay signed a five-year $38 million offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills according to The Buffalo News.
Insight: The Dolphins applied the transition tag to Clay, which means they have the right to match any offer sheet Clay signs. Miami, however, likely didn't think Clay would get an offer this high. The deal includes $20 million guaranteed and $24.2 million over the first two years. Miami has five days to match the offer, and if they decide not to, the Dolphins will receive no compensation.
Stevie Johnson, WR, SDC3/17/2015 2:32:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who spent last season in San Francisco, will stay in California, playing for San Diego in 2015 after signing a three-year deal, according to Dianna Marie Russini of NBC4 in D.C.
Insight: Johnson will be playing in a group including Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd and Jacoby Jones. He should be the No. 2 or No. 3 guy and could have WR3 fantasy value.
Trent Richardson, RB, OAK3/17/2015 2:22:00 PM
Description: Numerous reports have the Oakland Raiders signing running back Trent Richardson.
Insight: Richardson has yet to prove he can be an high-quality NFL running back despite being drafted No. 3 overall in the 2012 draft. If he makes the team he would likely grab some of Latavius Murray's carries.
Matt Schaub, QB, OAK3/16/2015 5:59:00 PM
Description: The Raiders have released quarterback Matt Schaub.
Insight: No surprise here, as the move saves the team $5.5 million. Schaub should be able to latch on somewhere as a backup.
Vince Wilfork, DT, HOU3/16/2015 3:40:00 PM
Description: Former Patriots DT Vince Wilfork has agreed to join the Houston Texans, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: The 33-year-old Wilfork has been one of the top interior linemen in the NFL during his career and was a solid run-stopper again last season. With Wilfork clogging up the middle and J.J. Watt on the outside, the Texans should be solid up front.
Cecil Shorts III, WR, HOU3/16/2015 3:35:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Cecil Shorts has agreed to a deal with Houston, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Shorts had a nice season back in 2012 (55-979-7), but his fantasy value has been slowed by poor quarterback play and injuries. He'll have similar quarterback issues in Houston. He'll also be a No. 2, at best, with DeAndre Hopkins seeing the most targets.
Zach Mettenberger, QB, TEN3/14/2015 11:28:00 AM
Description: The Titans continue to indicate that they will go with quarterback Zach Mettenberger as their starter in 2015, according to a Nashville Tennessean report.
Insight: They could have whichever rookie Tampa Bay doesn't select, likely Marcus Mariota, but it appears they are happy with Mettenberger. The Titans have added Harry Douglas to their wide receiver corps, but Mettenberg still doesn't figure to be worthy of fantasy starter status.
Mike Wallace, WR, MIN3/13/2015 8:39:00 PM
Description: Receiver Mike Wallace has indeed been traded to the Vikings.
Insight: Wallace will start opposite Charles Johnson, and should be a WR3 in 2015.
Mike Wallace, WR, MIA3/13/2015 7:09:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace may be on the verge of being traded to the Vikings, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Insight: Wallace would be a nice addition for Minnesota. We will update you if the trade becomes official.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, PIT3/13/2015 4:56:00 PM
Description: Running back DeAngelo Williams has signed with the Steelers.
Insight: Williams will backup Le'Veon Bell, but will actually have a chance to start early in the season, as Bell is expected to be suspended a few games.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, PIT3/13/2015 4:10:00 PM
Description: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has signed a multiple-year extension to stay in Pittsburgh.
Insight: His old deal was set to expire at the end of this season. Big Ben had a monster season, throwing for 4,952 yards and 32 touchdowns against just nine interceptions. He has a lot of talent around him including Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Le'Veon Bell, and should be a very good fantasy option again in 2015.
C.J. Spiller, RB, NOS3/13/2015 1:20:00 PM
Description: Former Bills running back C.J. Spiller has apparently signed with the New Orleans Saints.
Insight: Spiller was once a highly touted fantasy option, but will likely be in a running back by committee situation with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson.
Nick Fairley, DT, STL3/13/2015 1:18:00 PM
Description: Former Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley has been signed by the St. Louis Rams, according to CBSSports.
Insight: The Rams have assembled a strong and deep defensive line, but what about the rest of their holes?
Kenny Stills, WR, MIA3/13/2015 1:14:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Kenny Stills has been traded to the Miami Dolphins, according to ProFootballTalk.
Insight: Stills was a solid option for Drew Brees with 63 catches for 931 yards and three scores despite being the No. 3 target behind Jimmy Graham and Brandin Cooks. He'll move up in the pecking order in Miami and could be the No. 1 option.
Ryan Succop, K, TEN3/13/2015 11:05:00 AM
Description: Titans place-kicker Ryan Succop has re-signed with Tennessee for three years.
Insight: Succop is a solid, though unspectacular, kicker. He did hit a career-high 86.4 percent of his tries in 2014 (19-of-22). It would help if the Titans offense would get a lot better.
Darren McFadden, RB, DAL3/13/2015 10:51:00 AM
Description: Former Raiders running back Darren McFadden has agreed to a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Insight: Fantasy owners certainly hope he's just a stop-gap measure until a "real" back can be brought into town. McFadden would certainly be better behind the Dallas offensive line than the weak Oakland line, but we assume there is a second move planned or a high draft choice to be used on a back like Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon.
Dwayne Bowe, WR, BAL3/13/2015 9:58:00 AM
Description: Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, released by the Chiefs after they signed Jeremy Maclin, is still searching for a landing spot.
Insight: Bowe could find one in Baltimore as a replacement for Torrey Smith, but that probably won't excite fantasy owners. Bowe was the top receiver in Kansas City but didn't score even once in 2014. The Ravens lost both Smith and tight end Owen Daniels so are in need of weapons for Joe Flacco. They can probably do better than Bowe.
Jordan Cameron, TE, MIA3/12/2015 8:19:00 PM
Description: Update: The Dolphins have signed tight end Jordan Cameron.
Insight: Things continue to get weird in NFL free agency. Earlier it was reported Cameron had agreed to return to the Browns, but apparently that is not the case. Cameron will now take his talents to South Beach.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE3/12/2015 6:12:00 PM
Description: The Browns have re-signed tight end Jordan Cameron to a two-year deal.
Insight: This is a big surprise, as Cameron was expected to leave after not receiving the franchise tag. Howver, after not seeing a great market, Cameron will be back with Cleveland for at least the next two seasons.
Trent Richardson, RB, IND3/12/2015 5:20:00 PM
Description: The Colts have released running back Trent Richardson.
Insight: This was expected after the Frank Gore signing. Richardson will likely find work, but in a backup role.
Ryan Mathews, RB, PHI3/12/2015 4:51:00 PM
Description: Running back Ryan Mathews has finally agreed to terms with Philadelphia.
Insight: There was speculation that Mathews would move on after DeMarco Murray came into the Eagles' fold. However, that is not the case. Mathews fantasy impact will be severely limited unless there is an injury.
Justin Forsett, RB, BAL3/12/2015 2:48:00 PM
Description: Running back Justin Forsett will stay in Baltimore, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Forsett had a breakout season, rushing for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns. He started the season in a shared situation, but grabbed the bulk of the work by averaging 5.4 ypc.
DeMarco Murray, RB, PHI3/12/2015 2:45:00 PM
Description: Free agent running back DeMarco Murray has apparently gotten the money he was looking for ... in Philadelphia.
Insight: It's being reported that Murray and the Eagles have agreed to a five-year deal. This agreement puts the Ryan Mathews deal with the Eagles in limbo. Murray was the best running back in the NFL last season, but did see 497 touches which takes a toll on the body.
Ed Dickson, TE, CAR3/12/2015 10:46:00 AM
Description: Panthers backup tight end Ed Dickson has re-signed with Carolina.
Insight: Dickson's fantasy value is limited in Carolina (10-115-1 in 2014) as long as elite fantasy TE Greg Olsen is healthy.
Ryan Mathews, RB, PHI3/12/2015 10:43:00 AM
Description: Running back Ryan Mathews has finally agreed to terms with Philadelphia.
Insight: There was speculation that Mathews would move on after DeMarco Murray came into the Eagles' fold. However, that is not the case. Mathews fantasy impact will be severely limited unless there is an injury.
Andre Johnson, WR, IND3/11/2015 4:33:00 PM
Description: Receiver Andre Johnson has signed with the Colts.
Insight: Indianapolis continues to add veterans, with Johnson being the latest addition. The Colts are a nice fit for him, as he will likely start opposite T.Y. Hilton. Johnson will be a WR3 heading into 2015.
Ryan Mathews, RB, PHI3/11/2015 2:38:00 PM
Description: Running back Ryan Mathews and the Eagles have agreed to a three-year, $11.5 million contract according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: The Eagles might not be done adding running back as the team could still draft one in the middle rounds next month. Mathews is Chip Kelly's consolation prize after he couldn't sign Mark Ingram or Frank Gore. Similar to new Philadelphia quarterback Sam Bradford, Mathews has high upside but is injury prone. He has played all 16 games just once in five NFL seasons.
Marcus Mariota, QB3/11/2015 2:31:00 PM
Description: Eagles coach/GM Chip Kelly made it clear to the media on Wednesday that the team isn't planning to trade up for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Insight: Kelly went as far as to say, "We will never mortgage our future to go up and get someone like that." It's hard to believe Kelly, though, after he completely disassembled his offense in one week's time. At this moment in time, owever, Sam Bradford is projected to be the Eagles starting quarterback in Week 1.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, HOU3/11/2015 1:21:00 PM
Description: The Jets have traded for Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: Houston re-signed Ryan Mallett and signed Brian Hoyer, so there wasn't really a place for Fitzpatrick with the Texans. While Fitzpatrick is not a splashy move, he is a big upgrade to Geno Smith. In 12 starts, Fitzpatrick threw for 17 touchdowns, eight interceptions, completed 63.1 percent of his passes and finished fourth among quarterbacks with a 7.96 yards per attempt average.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHI3/11/2015 1:17:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin officially came to terms with the Kansas City Chiefs. The two sides agreed to a five-year, $55 million contract with $22.5 million guaranteed according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Insight: With this move, the Chiefs will release receiver Dwayne Bowe to make cap space for Maclin. This deal means Maclin is the sixth highest paid receiver in the league based on annual salary. Maclin had 85 catches for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, but he should see a decrease going from Chip Kelly's high-flying offense to an offense with very safe quarterback Alex Smith.
Darrelle Revis, CB, NYJ3/10/2015 9:22:00 PM
Description: Cornerback Darrelle Revis has reunited with the Jets on a five-year, $70 million deal.
Insight: The deal has a whopping $39 million guaranteed, making Revis the highest paid corner in the league. He and Buster Skrine will now man the outside for the Jets.
Roy Helu Jr., RB, OAK3/10/2015 9:09:00 PM
Description: Running back Roy Helu has agreed to a two-year deal with the Raiders.
Insight: Helu will be the third-down back and back up Latavius Murray. Owners should conisder Helu a relevant tailback for 2015.
Frank Gore, RB, IND3/10/2015 6:16:00 PM
Description: Running back Frank Gore has signed a three-year deal with the Colts.
Insight: After spurning the Eagles, Gore will now go to Indianapolis. He will have RB2 potential with Andrew Luck and company.
Matt Asiata, RB, MIN3/10/2015 6:08:00 PM
Description: Vikings re-signed running back Matt Asiata to a one-year deal.
Insight: Asiata was decent as Adrian Peterson's replacement last season, rushing for 570 yards and nine touchdowns. His fantasy value for 2015, however, obviously depends on what Minnesota does with Peterson.
Virgil Green, TE, DEN3/10/2015 6:06:00 PM
Description: The Denver Broncos and tight end Virgil Green have agreed to a three-year contract.
Insight: With Julius Thomas leaving for free agency, Green could become Peyton Manning's favorite tight end next season. Green could be a fantasy sleeper next season.
Julius Thomas, TE, JAC3/10/2015 6:04:00 PM
Description: Tight end Julius Thomas has signed with Jacksonville.
Insight: It is a five-year, $46 million deal, which is absurd money for a tight end. Thomas' value will dip in Jacksonville.
Brian Hartline, WR, MIA3/10/2015 6:04:00 PM
Description: Wideout Brian Hartline has signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns.
Insight: This isn't a big splash deal, but Hartline has a chance to be a top receiver for Josh McCown next season. By no means does that make Hartline a top fantasy wide receiver, but he has a chance to put up better stats than he had a season ago.
Shane Vereen, RB, NYG3/10/2015 5:46:00 PM
Description: Running back Shane Vereen has signed with the Giants.
Insight: It will be a three-year deal, and Vereen will likely be used in a similar role to his one in New England.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ3/10/2015 5:42:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Percy Harvin has officially been released.
Insight: This was expected after the Brandon Marshall tarde. Harvin could be a fantasy factor if he ends up in the right situation for next season.
Torrey Smith, WR, SFX3/10/2015 4:54:00 PM
Description: Wideout Torrey Smith has agreed to a five-year deal with the 49ers.
Insight: This was expected, and now gives San Francisco a deep threat. He will form a duo with Anquan Boldin yet again, as the two helped lead teh Ravens to the Super Bowl in 2013.
Jake Locker, QB, TEN3/10/2015 4:48:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Jake Locker is retiring from the NFL.
Insight: This is pretty shocking, as Locker is just 26 years old. However, injuries have clearly played a factor in ending his career rather early.
Mike Iupati, G, ARI3/10/2015 4:45:00 PM
Description: The Cardinals have signed guard Mike Iupati to a five-year contract.
Insight: Iupati will slide into the starting lineup right away, and will strengthen Arizona's offensive line. This only helps the playmakers for the Cardinals in 2015.
Owen Daniels, TE, DEN3/10/2015 4:18:00 PM
Description: Tight end Owen Daniels has been signed by the Denver Broncos, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Daniels had been with Gary Kubiak in Houston and Baltimore, so its no surprise that he's wanted in Denver. He's no Julius Thomas, but he can catch the ball.
Sam Bradford, QB, PHI3/10/2015 4:13:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Sam Bradford has been traded to Philadelphia.
Insight: Bradford has been injury prone, but when healthy is pretty accurate. Still, one can't believe the Eagles are ready to play next season with Bradford and Mark Sanchez as their quarterbacks. Look for more moves or them drafting a quarterback in April.
Nick Foles, QB, STL3/10/2015 4:09:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone) has been traded to the St. Louis Rams.
Insight: It wasn't that long ago (2013) that Foles was playing like an MVP. But last season his performance dropped significantly and he missed the second half of the season due to injury. Foles is a better fit with the Rams and if healthy should be a solid, though unspectacular, quarterback.
Jimmy Graham, TE, SEA3/10/2015 4:06:00 PM
Description: Tight end Jimmy Graham has apparently been traded to the Seattle Seahawks.
Insight: Graham's value has to take a bit of a hit just because the Saints throw the ball a lot more than the Seahawks. But don't think Seattle is paying Graham big money to be a decoy.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHI3/8/2015 10:22:00 PM
Description: Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin plans to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Insight: Although this should help Kansas City's passing game, which didn't see a single wideout score a receiving touchdown in 2014, it hurts Maclin's fantasy value. Alex Smith is extremely careful with the ball and doesn't throw down field very often. Andy Reid also spreads the ball around, but it will be interesting to see how the play calling changes with a clear No. 1 wide receiver in Reid's game plan.
Torrey Smith, WR, BAL3/8/2015 10:19:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Torrey Smith is going to sign with the San Francisco 49ers according to the Baltimore Sun.
Insight: The Baltimore Sun described the signing as a "done deal." Smith is close friends with fellow wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who won Super Bowl XLVII with Baltimore. That could have definitely played a role in Smith moving to the west coast. Meanwhile, the Baltimoe Sun has also reported Andre Johnson is a potential replacement for Smith to play alongside Steve Smith.
Frank Gore, RB, SFX3/8/2015 10:16:00 PM
Description: Free agent running back Frank Gore is expected to sign with the Eagles when the new NFL year officially begins on Tuesday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: Schefter reports the deal will be for three years and includes $7.5 million guaranteed. The Eagles have an obvious hole with trading LeSean McCoy this past week, but Gore is 32 years old, so there is some risk with this signing. At least Gore has shown very little signs of wear-and-tear in his career.
Ndamukong Suh, DT, DET3/8/2015 1:36:00 PM
Description: According to Espn's Chris Mortensen, the Dolphins have an agreement in place for defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
Insight: It is reportedly worth $114 million with $60 million guaranteed. Miami has seemingly been the front-runner since Suh was not given the franchise tag. He will now head to the AFC, and be a force for the Dolphins' defensive line.
LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI3/8/2015 12:55:00 PM
Description: The Bills have signed running back LeSean McCoy to a new five-year, $40 million deal.
Insight: It has $26.5 million in guarantees, and this contract will make McCoy very. He will be an RB1 in his new digs for the 2015 season.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBP3/7/2015 10:34:00 PM
Description: The Packers have re-signed wideout Randall Cobb to a four-year deal.
Insight: This is a a surprise, as Cobb was expected to get big bucks on the market. He decided to take $40 million from Green Bay, which is good news for fantasy owners. Cobb will be a WR1 in 2015.
Mark Ingram, RB, NOS3/7/2015 8:49:00 PM
Description: The Saints have re-signed running back Mark Ingram to a four-year contract, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: It will be worth $16 million, and after a breakout season in 2014, Ingram should be considered a borderline RB1 for 2015.
Doug Free, OT, DAL3/7/2015 10:59:00 AM
Description: Dallas right tackle Doug Free has agreed to a three-year deal with the team, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.
Insight: Free is part of one of the league's best offensive lines and the Cowboys had re-signing him high on their to-do list. Many think the reason Dallas may let DeMarco Murray walk is that they think the offensive line, and not the back, was the reason for the success on the ground last season.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ3/6/2015 11:56:00 AM
Description: If rumors of the trade for Brandon Marshall are true, Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin is as good as gone.
Insight: If he is released before March 19, then the Jets will send the Seahawks a sixth-round draft pick. New York would also be responsible for Harvin's $10.5 million salary if he stays on the roster. That's not going to happen now.
Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI3/6/2015 11:55:00 AM
Description: Bears wideout Brandon Marshall has apparently been traded to the Jets for a fifth-round pick, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Marshall dealt with ankles issues for most of last season and is a "high-maintenance" receiver, but he can also be dynamic on the field in the right situation. Fantasy owners can't be happy with this landing spot and with Geno Smith as his quarterback.
Dan Herron, RB, IND3/6/2015 10:53:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Dan Herron was re-signed on Thursday.
Insight: Herron doesn't figure to be the Opening Day starter, but he'll be a handcuff to whoever is the starter. That guy probably isn't on the current roster. Herron played well in the second half of last season and into the playoffs.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR3/6/2015 10:50:00 AM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has signed a three-year extenssion to stay put.
Insight: Olsen clearly had his best season in 2014 (84-1,008-6) and will be a top-five fantasy option for the tight end position in 2015. This is good news for Cam Newton too. He couldn't afford to lose his most reliable target.
Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI3/6/2015 10:43:00 AM
Description: Bears wideout Brandon Marshall is apparently being offered in trade or could be released, according to a Chicago Tribune report.
Insight: Marshall dealt with ankles issues for most of last season and is a "high-maintenance" receiver, but he can also be dynamic on the field in the right situation. Fantasy owners will have to watch carefully where he lands, if this report is indeed true.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND3/6/2015 10:36:00 AM
Description: Wide receiver Reggie Wayne will not be re-signed by the Colts, the team he has played for over the past 14 seasons, announced the team.
Insight: Wayne is the franchise leader in regular season games played (211) and ranks second in receptions (1,070), receiving yards (14,345), receiving touchdowns (80), 100-yard games (43) and consecutive games with a reception (134). Even if he finds another job (Denver?), his fantasy value is likely very limited.
Marques Colston, WR, NOS3/6/2015 10:33:00 AM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston will restructure his contract to stay with the team next season, according to mark Garafolo of FOX Sports 1.
Insight: Colston's numbers have fallen way off from his prime (59-902-5 in 2014) and he'll likely take a backup role to Brandin Cooks and Jimmy Graham, but he can still be Drew Brees' security blanket.
Vince Wilfork, DT, NEP3/5/2015 9:53:00 AM
Description: Patriots DT Vince Wilfork will not have his option picked up by the team, according to the lineman himself, making him a free agent
Insight: The 33-year-old Wilfork has been one of the top interior linemen in the NFL during his career and was a solid run-stopper again last season. He could still help the Pats or another team in 2015.
Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN3/4/2015 8:50:00 PM
Description: Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is still not convinced he wants to play for the Vikings again according to ESPN.
Insight: Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer flew to Houston to visit Peterson at his home. Peterson released a statement saying how much he appeciated the visit, but he did not explicitly say he wants to return to Minnesota. It is still very unclear where Peterson will play in 2015.
Matt Cassel, QB, BUF3/4/2015 1:10:00 PM
Description: The Bills have traded for quarterback Matt Cassel.
Insight: Buffalo continues to make changes to their roster. Cassel is not a sexy name, but will have a chance to compete for the starting job with E.J. Manuel
LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI3/3/2015 7:40:00 PM
Description: The Eagles have apparently traded running back LeSean McCoy to the Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: This is one of the biggest stunners we have seen in a long time. McCoy will definitely lose a little value, but should still be considered an RB1. Both sides received nice value in this deal.
Mark Ingram, RB, NOS3/3/2015 10:22:00 AM
Description: Saints coach Sean Payton would still like to have running back Mark Ingram in New Orleans, according to a FoxSports report, but the issue is financial.
Insight: The Saints are already over the cap. Ingram had 964 rushing yards and nine touchdowns and finally showed why he was a first round selection in 2011. Ingram's fantasy value could change dramatically based on where he ends up.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU3/3/2015 10:16:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins should see his fantasy value increase if veteran Andre Johnson is traded or released as he has requested.
Insight: Hopkins saw his numbers increase dramatically in 2014 to 76 receptions, 1,210 yards and six touchdowns. Of course, there is always a danger of double teams if the Texans don't get some kind of threat on the other side of the ball, but if Johnson (146 targets) leaves, Hopkins wouls certainly see more than last season's 127 targets.
Jarryd Hayne, RB, SFX3/3/2015 9:21:00 AM
Description: Australian rugby star Jarryd Hayne will try his hand at American football, signing a deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
Insight: Twice named the best player in the National Rugby League, he'll have a tough road to gain any fantasy value with Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde at the top of the 49ers depth chart. He is 6-foot-2 and 226 lbs and ran a 4.53 40 at his Pro Day.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU3/2/2015 8:40:00 PM
Description: Jphn McClain of the Hoston Chronical is reporting that Texans receiver Andre Johnson will either be traded or released.
Insight: Johnson has been given permission to seek a trade, with DeAndre Hopkins locked in as Houstons top wideout. It may be tough to deal Johnson with a $10.5 million base salary in 2015, but no matter what, it looks like the Texans' all-time leading receiver will be playing elsewhere for the first time next season.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHI3/2/2015 6:16:00 PM
Description: Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin was not given the franchise tag on Monday's deadline.
Insight: It is a bit of a surprise that Philadelphia did not assure themselves of bringing him back. Nevertheless, Maclin is expected back with the Eagles, although the chances in him leaving have just increased.
Stephen Gostkowski, K, NEP3/2/2015 4:26:00 PM
Description: New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski was slapped with the franchise tag.
Insight: This is noteworthy because he was the top point-getter among kickers in 2014. For all intents and purposes, Gostkowski will be back in New England in 2015, and he will be a top option yet again.
Justin Houston, LB, KAN3/2/2015 4:24:00 PM
Description: Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston was given the franchise tag, as expected.
Insight: Houston has said he has no issue playing under the one-year contract, which is good news for IDP owners, and owners who value the Chiefs' defensive unit.
Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, NYG3/2/2015 4:22:00 PM
Description: New York defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was assigned the franchise tag on Monday.
Insight: The two sides will attempt to hammer out a long-term deal before July 15, but no matter what, JPP will likely be playing for the Giants next season.
Charles Clay, FB/TE, MIA3/2/2015 4:20:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins have assigned the transition tag to tight end Charles Clay.
Insight: Using the transition tag instead of the franchise tag saves Miami $1.27 million. The Dolphins will now have the right ro match any offer Clay signs, but will receive no compensation if he walks. It is likely Clay will be back in South Beach for the 2015 campaign.
Dez Bryant, WR, DAL3/2/2015 2:14:00 PM
Description: Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant gets the franchise tag at one-year and $12.8 million.
Insight: Expect them to come to a long-term deal before July 15. That's also likely going to mean DeMarco Murray hits the open market.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN3/2/2015 2:10:00 PM
Description: As expected, Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas was given the franchise tag, according to The Denver Post.
Insight: No surprise here. There was no way they would let him get to the open market. Peyton Manning owners and Thomas owners are both happy about this development.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN3/1/2015 9:04:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas will be given the franchise tag, according to The Denver Post.
Insight: No surprise here, and the Broncos will now try to hammer out a long-term deal. No matter what, it seems that Thomas will be playing with Peyton Manning and Denver in 2015.
DeMarco Murray, RB, DAL3/1/2015 2:57:00 PM
Description: Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones said the talks with free agent running back DeMarco Murray have been "slow", and he will hit the open market according to FOX Sports Southwest.
Insight: Murray and the Cowboys couldn't reach a long-term deal, and with the franchise tag going to wide receiver Dez Bryant, Dallas has no choice but to let Murray go. That doesn't mean the Cowboys are out of the running for re-signing Murray, but it will become harder. Murray is 27 years old and should go for the big pay day.
Dez Bryant, WR, DAL3/1/2015 2:51:00 PM
Description: Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones confirmed the team would have to use the franchise tag on wide receiver Dez Bryant according to FOX Sports Southwest.
Insight: This was expected. The tag would mean Bryant would make about $13 million unless the two sides came to a long-term agreement before July 15. This also means the Cowboys are going to let DeMarco Murray hit the open market.
Josh McCown, QB, TAM2/27/2015 8:20:00 PM
Description: The Browns have signed quarterback Josh McCown to a three-year contract.
Insight: This will likely end Brian Hoyer's tenure in Cleveland. McCown will fight for the starting job with Johnny Manziel, but really does not excite you from a fantasy perspective, even if he wins the job.
Steven Jackson, RB, ATL2/26/2015 7:54:00 PM
Description: The Falcons released running back Steven Jackson.
Insight: Jackson will have trouble finding work, but could have a chance to earn a roster spot as a backup. He likely will not be relevant in 2015 no matter what. For now, Devonta Freeman is atop the depth chart in Atlanta.
Reggie Bush, RB, DET2/25/2015 5:56:00 PM
Description: The Lions have released running back Reggie Bush.
Insight: It will be interesting to see where Bush winds up. His day as a lead back are over, but he definitely still holds value. Joique Bell will be a borderline RB1 for 2015.
Ndamukong Suh, DT, DET2/25/2015 3:18:00 PM
Description: CBS Sports reports the Jaguars will make a strong push for defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
Insight: The Jaguars have a lot of cash with big-spending owner Shad Khan, so Jacksonville has been linked to several big free agent stars, including Randall Cobb and Julius Thomas. Suh would be a perfect fit for Gus Bradley's defense. Suh will make a lot of money wherever he goes.
Jameis Winston, QB2/25/2015 2:47:00 PM
Description: Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston admitted to Sports Illustrated that his dream is to play in both the NFL and MLB.
Insight: Winston played both baseball and football in college, and the Texas Rangers drafted him in the 15th round in 2012. Winston said he is concentrating on playing just football right now, but Bleacher Report has reported Winston will likely play baseball at some point. As if the Buccaneers didn't have enough to think about, here is one more thing.
Peyton Hillis, RB, NYG2/25/2015 2:44:00 PM
Description: The Giants released running back Peyton Hillis.
Insight: Hillis is the definition of a one-hit wonder, rushing for 1,177 yards in 2010 with the Browns and just 1,258 in the four years since then. Hillis has also seen his last two seasons end with concussions.
Jacoby Jones, WR, BAL2/25/2015 2:40:00 PM
Description: The Ravens released receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones.
Insight: Baltimore will save $750,000 against the cap with this move unless they designate him as a post-June 1 cut. In that case, the Ravens would save $2.5 million against the cap for 2015. With just being a return man, Jones wasn't worth the new contract he signed last March which was four-years, $12 million.
Julius Thomas, TE, DEN2/24/2015 9:55:00 AM
Description: A report in the Denver Post has Broncos tight end Julius Thomas as not likely to re-sign with the team.
Insight: Denver has 12 unrestricted free agents in all and Demaryius Thomas tops the list as a must sign. Julius Thomas appears to be headed elsewhere as the team won't be able to meet his high salary request. Jacksonville or Atlanta could be his landing spot.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, CAR2/23/2015 3:59:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has been released, according to Molly Grantham of WBTV.
Insight: Williams rushed for just 219 yards this season. That's a far cry from the 1,515 yards and league-leading 18 touchdowns in 2008. He played just six games due to injury. This move should help Jonathan Stewart for next season.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU2/23/2015 9:38:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins admitted to having wrist surgery after the season, reports Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.
Insight: Hopkins had a rod and pin put in the wrist and recently had them removed. He was a breakout receiver in 2014, catching 76 balls for 1,210 yards and six touchdowns despite the team's obvious quarterback issues. He should be ready for training camp.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI2/18/2015 11:30:00 AM
Description: Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald has indeed signed a new contract with Arizona.
Insight: The deal clears about $13 million in cap space, and will likely keep Fotzgerald in Arizona for the rest of his career.
Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN2/18/2015 10:24:00 AM
Description: Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said he expects Adrian Peterson to be on the team next season.
Insight: Essentially the entire Vikings' front office has voiced support for Peterson, making it look likely that he will be back with Minnesota. The team may want to trim his $15.4 million against the cap for 2015.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI2/18/2015 9:30:00 AM
Description: Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald is close to a new deal with Arizona, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: It would be a new multi-year contract, and would keep Fitzgerald in Arizona for the rest of his career. While it will be nice to see him finish his career with the Cardinals, Fitzgerald is more of a WR3 these days.
A.J. Jenkins, WR, KAN2/17/2015 3:32:00 PM
Description: Kansas City waived wide receiver A.J. Jenkins.
Insight: Jenkins was the 30th pick of the first round by the 49ers, but could never make it onto the field either in San Francisco or wideout-starved Kansas City. He might not get another chance.
Ryan Mallett, QB, HOU2/17/2015 8:35:00 AM
Description: Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official website believes quarterback Ryan Mallett (pectoral injury, free agent) will be the team's Opening Day starter.
Insight: It's February so a lot can happen between now an September, including a draft and a free agent signing period, but the Texans QB position comes with a couple of solid receivers and a great running back.
Frank Gore, RB, SFX2/16/2015 1:46:00 PM
Description: 49ers free agent tunning back Frank Gore apparently isn't on the same page as management when it comes to signing a contract, according to his own Instagram page.
Insight: "I know the fans love me, but I need to know if the management does," said Gore, who has rushed for more than 1,100 yards the past foru seasons. If the rift continues, Gore's backup Carlos Hyde could be a keeper.
Josh McCown, QB, TAM2/16/2015 1:43:00 PM
Description: Former Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown left his Buffalo visit without a contract offer.
Insight: McCown lasted just one season in Tampa Bay, after playing well in a substitute role in Chicago. He isn't likely to land a starting job, though his best hope is probably in Buffalo where he would have to beat out E.J. Manuel.
Peyton Manning, QB, DEN2/13/2015 5:32:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to make a decision on his future next week, according to Pro Football Talk.
Insight: It would be a surprise is he doesn't suit up for another season. Manning will be a 39 next month, but will be a QB1 for 2015 if he returns.
Johnny Manziel, QB, CLE2/12/2015 10:27:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was given verbal support by his owner, Jimmy Haslam, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Manziel's rookie season was a nightmare for both the Browns and any fantasy owners who took the gamble on him, but it appears he may still get one more chance in Cleveland. That said, fantasy owners probably should run far away.
David Wilson, RB, NYG2/12/2015 10:17:00 AM
Description: Giants running back David Wilson had retired from football in August due to a neck injury, but New York officially waived him Wednesday as part of a cap space procedure move.
Insight: Wilson was a first-round of the Giants in 2012. he showed exciting talent as both a kicker returner and a runner, but the 23-year-old will finish with just 115 career carries (504 yards rushing) in two seasons.
Le'Veon Bell, RB, PIT2/12/2015 9:59:00 AM
Description: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive a two-game suspension for his DUI arrest in August 2014, according to John Clayton.
Insight: Bell rushed for 1,361 yards and caught 83 balls for another 854 yards last season making him one of the best players in all of fantasy, so missing a couple of games will hurt. That's 15 percent of a typical fantasy regular season.
Josh McCown, QB, TAM2/11/2015 6:01:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers released quarterback Josh McCown.
Insight: McCown lasted just one season in Tampa Bay, and with the team likely to take a quarterback first overall, he became expendable. McCown should fine work as a backup, but may opt to retire.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ2/11/2015 10:18:00 AM
Description: Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin will likely be released before March 19 according to ESPN New York.
Insight: If he is released before March 19, then the Jets will send the Seahawks a sixth-round draft pick, but if Harvin stays on the roster after that date, then New York will be giving Seattle a fourth-round selection. New York will also be responsible for Harvin's $10.5 million salary if he stays on the roster.
Vince Wilfork, DT, NEP2/6/2015 9:24:00 AM
Description: Patriots DT Vince Wilfork told WEEI radio that he was coming back for another season.
Insight: The 33-year-old Wilfork has been one of the top interior linemen in the NFL during his career and his return for another season will make life rough for AFC East running backs.
Michael Oher, OT, TEN2/6/2015 9:18:00 AM
Description: Tennessee offensive tackle Michael Oher has been waived.
Insight: Oher, he of movie fame, had signed a four-year deal last March, but put together another less-than-mediocre season and the team released him.
Luke McCown, QB, NOS2/5/2015 3:00:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Luke McCown re-signed with the New Orleans Saints to play backup to Drew Brees.
Insight: Fantasy owners hope he continues his streak of not having thrown a pass in 17 straight games and one pass since 2011.
Colin Kaepernick, QB, SFX2/3/2015 2:57:00 PM
Description: The 49ers offense could see major changes in 2015 according to the Sacramento Bee.
Insight: San Francisco is expected to return to the read-option. Colin Kaepernick had a career-high 639 rushing yards last season, but most of that came when Kaepernick was running for his life. This is good news for Kaepernick's fantasy value as he pretty much proved he can't be a conventional pocket passer. He threw for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and took 52 sacks.
Johnny Manziel, QB, CLE2/2/2015 3:36:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel checked himself into a treatment facility, according to Mary Kay Cabot Browns beatwriter for Plain Dealer.
Insight: We don't know the reason for the treatment, but anything that can help him be a better person and football player is welcomed. His rookie season was a nightmare for both the Browns and any fantasy owners who took the gamble on him.
Jeremy Lane, CB, SEA2/2/2015 3:34:00 PM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane's wrist injury turns out for be a compound fracture.
Insight: Lane intercepted Tom Brady's pass into the end zone on New England's second drive of the game, but Lane hurt his wrist when Julian Edelman tackled him. The Seahawks secondary sorely missed him down the stretch. He should be fine for next season.
Richard Sherman, CB, SEA2/2/2015 3:30:00 PM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will undergo Tommy John surgery, according to coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: Sherman injured his left ulnar collateral ligament in the NFC Championship Game, but played in the Super Bowl. He's likely to miss most offseason work, but should be ready to go for Week 1.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP2/1/2015 10:52:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown to help the Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX, 28-24.
Insight: Seattle held Gronkowski in check for much of the first half, and then the tight end caught a 22-yard touchdown pass with 31 seconds left in the second quarter. This was Gronkowski's first Super Bowl win.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, SEA2/1/2015 10:50:00 PM
Description: Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse channeled his inner David Tyree, making one of the most improbable catches in Super Bowl history.
Insight: On the final drive with about a minute remaining, the Patriots defender knocked Kearse to the ground, but the ball knocked around several different body parts, never touching the ground, and Kearse reeling in the ball. It set up Seattle with first-and-goal, but rookie Malcolm Butler intercepted Russell Wilson to seal the, 28-24, victory.
Shane Vereen, RB, NEP2/1/2015 10:47:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Shane Vereen had 81 yards from scrimmage in Super Bowl XLIX.
Insight: Vereen had 11 receptions for 64 yards. Seattle's defense played pretty well, intercepting two passes, but they really didn't find a way to stop Vereen and Julian Edelman. It cost them in the end.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP2/1/2015 10:40:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman could have easily won Super Bowl MVP.
Insight: No one will argue Tom Brady didn't deserve MVP, but Edelman had a tremendous performance, catching nine passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. Seattle really had no answer for New England's short passing game.
Chris Matthews, WR, SEA2/1/2015 10:40:00 PM
Description: Seahawks wide receiver Chris Matthews released his inner Mario Manningham, having a tremendous performance in Super Bowl XLIX.
Insight: Matthews had never caught a pass in the NFL before and caught four passes for 109 yards with a touchdown. It was clear that his size was going to be an advantage especially in the red zone. Matthews performance will likely be forgotten due to the final result of the game, but fantasy owners should keep an eye on him because the rest of the Seattle receiving core is very average.
Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA2/1/2015 10:38:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had 24 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown versus the Patriots, but he is likely upset he didn't get one more yard.
Insight: Seattle was on the Patriots 1-yard line on second down with about 25 seconds to go, and the Seahawks elected to put the ball in the air rather than pound the rock with Lynch one more time. Lynch was unstoppable in the second half. Russell Wilson threw a game-ending interception. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and coach Pete Carroll will have to live with that decision for the rest of their lives.
LeGarrette Blount, RB, NEP2/1/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount averaged just 2.9 yards per attempt versus the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
Insight: Blount had 40 yards on 14 carries, which was a bit surprising based on the success the Panthers and Packers had running the ball versus the Seahawks in the playoffs. However, Tom Brady did enough through the air to win the game.
Russell Wilson, QB, SEA2/1/2015 10:31:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a very, very costly interception in the final minute of Super Bowl XLIX.
Insight: Wilson was just 12-of-21 with 247 yards, but he continued to make big plays to keep Seattle in the game. They were able to built a 10-point lead in the third quarter but failed to put away the Patriots. On the final drive with about 25 seconds left in the game, the Seahawks elected to pass from the Patriots 1-yard line instead of run it again with Marshawn Lynch. Wilson threw an interception to clinch the Patriots fourth Super Bowl victory in 14 years.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP2/1/2015 10:27:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won his fourth Super Bowl and third Super Bowl MVP.
Insight: Brady was 37-of-50 for 328 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. He rallied New England from 10 points down in the fourth quarter, leading two fourth quarter touchdown drives. Brady is now tied with Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for most Super Bowls by a starting quarterback. He is also tied with Montana for the most Super Bowl MVP awards.
Jeremy Lane, CB, SEA2/1/2015 7:05:00 PM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane left the Super Bowl with a wrist injury.
Insight: Lane intercepted Tom Brady's pass into the end zone on New England's second drive of the game, but Lane hurt his wrist when Julian Edelman tackled him. Lane is doubtful to return.
Odell Beckham Jr., WR, NYGHot2/1/2015 5:02:00 PM
Description: Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. won the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.
Insight: No surprise here. In 12 games, Beckham gained 1,305 yards with 91 catches. He was about the surest thing in daily leagues as he finished the year with nine straight games of at least 90 receiving yards, which tied the NFL record. Beckham will be one of the first 10 receivers taken in fantasy drafts then season barring any injuries. He may even go top five.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP2/1/2015 4:59:00 PM
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won the 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player Award.
Insight: This is the second time in four years Rodgers won the league MVP award. Rodgers was incredible this season, throwing for 4,381 yards, 38 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Rodgers hasn't throw an interception at home in over two seasons. He is the obvious choice to be the No. 1 quarterback taken in fantasy drafts next season.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI1/31/2015 4:42:00 PM
Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians "desperately" wants receiver Larry Fitzgerald back in Arizona according to azcardinals.com.
Insight: Fitzgerald likely wants to stay in Arizona too, but his decision of whether or not to move on is going to come down to whether he is willing to take a pay cut. He is set to count $23.6 million towards the cap figure in 2015. Arizona will have to cut him in March to avoid paying his $8 million roster bonus. This news is actually good because three weeks ago, everyone was saying Fitzgerald would definitely not be in Arizona. Although it's possible he stays in the desert, it still seems more likely the two sides part ways.
Dez Bryant, WR, DAL1/31/2015 4:38:00 PM
Description: Dallas owner Jerry Jones seems "destined" to franchise tag wide receiver Dez Bryant according to ESPN Dallas.
Insight: The price to tag Bryant would be about $13 million. Dallas wants to lock up Bryant long term, but ESPN Dallas doubts the team and Bryant will be able to reach a deal prior to free agency starting on March 10.
Le'Veon Bell, RB, PIT1/29/2015 11:26:00 AM
Description: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell's hyperextended knee, that cost him a chance to help his team against Baltimore in a playoff loss is rounding back into shape.
Insight: Bell also missed the Pro Bowl, but claims he's 85-90 percent at this point. As long as the budding superstar is ready for training camp his fantasy owners will be happy. Bell rushed for 1,361 yards and caught 83 balls for another 854 yards last season.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/29/2015 11:20:00 AM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman isn't on the injured list this week, although he did miss some time in the last AFC Championship Game due to a hip injury.
Insight: Edelman,Tom Brady's top receiver target, caught nine passes for 98 yards in the win over the Colts. He had 92 receptions this season for 972 yards a nd four scores in 14 games.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP1/29/2015 11:09:00 AM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is listed as probable for Super Bowl XLIX Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: That's a good joke, Bill. Although he did have a cold, he didn't miss any practice this week.
Earl Thomas, S, SEA1/29/2015 10:28:00 AM
Description: Seahawks FS Earl Thomas is dealing with a shoulder injury, but it won't keep him out of the Super Bowl, says Seattle coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: Thomas and corner Richard Sherman will both likely be less than 100 percent, but they will still give Patriots quarterback Tom Brady all he can handle.
Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA1/29/2015 10:22:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as probable for Sunday's Super Bowl, but that's just for official purposes - he's going to play.
Insight: In nine playoff games, Lynch is averaging 90.6 ypg on the ground and almost a touchdown per game (8). In fact, checking the prop bets, Lynch is -140 to score a touchdown on Sunday.
Richard Sherman, CB, SEA1/29/2015 10:12:00 AM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman isn't just dealing with a sprained left elbow, he's also on a baby watch.
Insight: Sherman's girlfriend is do this week, so she along with her doctor are in Arizona just in case so the cornerback won't have to fly back home to Seattle if his son is born. Now if his son will just give him about a four-hour window late Sunday afternoon it will work out for everyone involved.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP1/26/2015 2:13:00 PM
Description: The Boston Herald is reporting that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been dealing with a cold the past few days.
Insight: Brady hasn't missed practice and isn't going to miss the Super Bowl, but now he has to deal with illness, correctly pressurized footballs and the Seahawks tough defense.
Vontaze Burfict, LB, CIN1/26/2015 10:46:00 AM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (left knee) had microfracture surgery, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Burfict is a difference maker on the field, but this is usually one of the last steps taken to save a knee and a career.
Justin Blackmon, WR, JAC1/25/2015 6:16:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Justin Blackmon will return to the Jaguars in 2015 according to FOX Sports' Alex Marvez.
Insight: Just as Josh Gordon fails another drug test, it is announced that Blackmon will likely return. General manager Dave Caldwell said in December he heard good things about Blackmon's substance abuse recovery, but there is still no specific date for reinstatement. If he does return, Blackmon will be a big boost for quarterback Blake Bortles.
Josh Gordon, WR, CLE1/25/2015 5:04:00 PM
Description: Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon failed a test for alcohol and will be facing a year-long suspension according to Profootballtalk's Mike Florio.
Insight: To the common fan, alcohol doesn't seem like as big of a deal as marijuana, but Gordon was prohibited from alcohol consumption as part of his DUI treatment plan from July. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the NFL substance abuse policy is "extremely strict" and clear, so Gordon will wait until 2016 to be back on the field. He will be 25 by then. Gordon led the league in receiving at 22.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, TAM1/22/2015 2:06:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins should be on the sleeper watch for next season.
Insight: New Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter praised the talent he has to work with on offense in Tampa Bay and included Seferian-Jenkins. Koetter worked with Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta for two years, so he definitely knows how to incorporate a big, pass-catching tight end. Seferian-Jenkins is 6-foot-5 and 262 pounds with blazing speed. For owners who love to take flier tight ends late in drafts, this might be the best guy to take next season.
Peyton Manning, QB, DEN1/21/2015 2:45:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning plans to return for another season according to Denver Post's Woody Paige.
Insight: Paige is a well-respected Denver sports journalist and cites "three trustworthy sources" in his report. Paige says as long as Manning passes his annual spring physical, he will be back with the team in 2015 under new coordinator Gary Kubiak. That should make all fantasy owners happy.
Latavius Murray, RB, OAK1/19/2015 9:15:00 PM
Description: Oakland hired Bill Musgrave to be their offensive coordinator.
Insight: Musgrave was the Eagles quarterback coach in 2014 and was the Vikings offensive coordinator under coach Leslie Frazier. Quarterback Nick Foles took major steps back with Musgrave after his breakout season with former quarterback coach Bill Lazor, who became the Dolphins offensive coordinator this season. One good news for fantasy owners, Musgrave used Adrian Peterson a lot in Minnesota, so that could be great for Latavius Murray owners.
Richard Sherman, CB, SEA1/19/2015 8:24:00 PM
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's MRI indicated he has a sprained left elbow according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.
Insight: As expected, Sherman suffered an injury in his left arm. He could move the arm during the second part of the second half, but he played through the injury and plans to do the same versus the Patriots. It will be interesting to see how much Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tests the potentially one-armed Sherman.
Coby Fleener, TE, IND1/18/2015 10:12:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Coby Fleener had three recpetions during Sunday's loss to the Pariots.
Insight: Fleener recorded 30 yards, just as Dwayne Allen did on four catches. Both tight ends will limit the value of the other in 2015.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND1/18/2015 10:10:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving on Sunday, but it was not much of an accomplishment.
Insight: He had one catch for 36 yards. All of the Colts' pass-catchers were bottled up by New England's secondary, as nobody had a good fantasy day.
Dan Herron, RB, IND1/18/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Dan Herron had just 10 carries for 51 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He also had two receptions for 11 yards, but Herron was not able to break loose. Zurlon Tipton vultured the Colts' lone touchdown from him as well.
Andrew Luck, QB, IND1/18/2015 10:06:00 PM
Description: Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a game to forget Sunday versus New England.
Insight: He went 12-of-33 for 126 yards and two interceptions. Luck also had four rushes for 18 yards, but just a 23.0 passer rating. He will be one of the top signal-callers next season.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP1/18/2015 10:05:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught a touchdown on Sunday night.
Insight: He had just three catches for 28 yards on eight targets, so the score salvaged his day. Gronkowski is currently the best tight end in football.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/18/2015 10:04:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman recorded a team-high nine receptions for 98 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He also had 11 targets, and came up big for New England on a bunch of third downs. Edelman is Tom Brady's top receiver.
LeGarrette Blount, RB, NEP1/18/2015 10:03:00 PM
Description: Running back LeGarrette Blount was a monster Sunday against the Colts.
Insight: He had 30 carries for 148 yards and three scores. Blount now has seven touchdowns over his last two playoff games against Indianapolis.
Tom Brady, QB, NEP1/18/2015 10:02:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady led New England to a victory Sunday versus Indianapolis.
Insight: Brady was on target, going 23-of-35 for 226 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He also had three carries for 13 yards. Brady will look to win his fourth Super Bowl during his sixth appearance.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/18/2015 8:05:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman returned to action.
Insight: He briefly left in the second quarter, but the hip injury apparently is not serious.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/18/2015 7:52:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman left Sunday's game with a hip injury.
Insight: He was able to jog off on his own, but had to go to the locker room. He is questionable to return. Edelman had four catches for 27 yards before departing.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, SEA1/18/2015 6:44:00 PM
Description: Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse made his only reception count on Sunday afternoon.
Insight: The catch was the game-winning 35-yard touchdown in overtime. Kearse is not a great fantasy option, but the play was impressive nevertheless.
Doug Baldwin, WR, SEA1/18/2015 6:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin came up big on Sunday.
Insight: He was Russell Wilson's top target, with nine of them. Baldwin caught six passes for 106 yards, including a 35-yarder in overtime, to set up the game-winning score.
Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA1/18/2015 6:42:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch rushed for 157 yards and a toucdown Sunday against the Packers.
Insight: He did so on 25 carries, and caught one pass for 26 more yards. Lynch really got it going in the fourth quarter, and became the unstoppable force we all know him to be.
Russell Wilson, QB, SEA1/18/2015 6:40:00 PM
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson somehow overcame four interceptions, and lead a furious comeback Sunday versus Green Bay.
Insight: He threw for 209 yards and rushed for 25 more. Wilson came alive in fourth quarter and overtime, where he rushed for a score, and ended the game on a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBP1/18/2015 6:38:00 PM
Description: Packers wideout Randall Cobb caught a team-high seven passes during Sunday's loss.
Insight: He had 62 receiving yards and a score on 10 targets. Cobb will be a free agent, and will likely cash in whether it is with Green Bay or another team.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP1/18/2015 6:37:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson totaled a team-high 71 receiving yards on Sunday.
Insight: Nelson had five receptions on eight targets, and was shadowed by Richard Sherman all day. He will be a top-five wideout in 2015.
Eddie Lacy, RB, GBP1/18/2015 6:36:00 PM
Description: Packers running back Eddie Lacy rushed for 73 yards Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: He did so on 73 carries, but was unable to find much room in the second half. Lacy should be a top 10 pick heading into next season.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP1/18/2015 6:34:00 PM
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could not get in done on Sunday.
Insight: He went 19-of-34 for 178 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. It was a heartbreaker for Rodgers and the Packers. He should be the first quarterback taken off the board in 2015.
Carson Palmer, QB, ARI1/18/2015 2:27:00 PM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (torn left ACL) is apparently ahead of schedule on his rehab, according to azcentral sports columnist Dan Bickley.
Insight: Palmer was missed by both the Cardinals and fantasy owners and his return in time for training camp would greatly increase the value of Arizona receivers and the offense in general.
Eddie Lacy, RB, GBP1/18/2015 2:07:00 PM
Description: Packers running back Eddie Lacy was limited in practice by a sore knee, but as expected is active for Sunday's NFC Championship game.
Insight: Lacy had 19 carries for 101 yards last weekend and coach Mike McCarthy was just being very conservative during the week.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP1/18/2015 2:04:00 PM
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against Seattle.
Insight: You were expecting some thing else? Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf last Sunday going 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He'll be put to a much tougher test today against Seattle and some ugly weather.
Justin Britt, OT, SEA1/18/2015 2:03:00 PM
Description: Seahawks right tackle Justin Britt is inactive for the NFC Championship game against Green Bay.
Insight: Britt has an injured knee. He played every game this season, but graded out as just average. Alvin Bailey is expected to get the start.
Trent Richardson, RB, IND1/18/2015 9:58:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson missed Saturday's walkthrough and didn't go with the team to New England.
Insight: Richardson has fallen down the third on the depth chart behind Zurlon Tipton and doesn't play on special teams so his absence won't effect any fantasy owners.
Tony McDaniel, DT, SEA1/15/2015 3:51:00 PM
Description: Seahawks defensive lineman Tony McDaniel hasn't practiced this week due to a shoulder injury and should be considered questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship against Green Bay.
Insight: McDaniel started 14 of 16 games this season. Seattle rotates six or seven guys along the front during a game so they will still be strong even if he isn't active.
Bryan Stork, C, NEP1/15/2015 3:44:00 PM
Description: Patriots starting center Bryan Stork missed Thursday's practice and should be considered questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship against Indianapolis.
Insight: Stork didn't have a great season, but it's always disconcerting to play a big game with a backup center. Veteran Ryan Wendell would likely get the nod if Stork can't play.
Vontae Davis, DB, IND1/15/2015 3:41:00 PM
Description: Colts cornerback Vontae Davis (knee) missed Wednesday's practice, but returned to the field for Thursday's session.
Insight: He'll be classified as limited. Davis is one of the best cornerbacks in the league and his services will be desperately needed against Tom Brady and the Pats.
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GBP1/15/2015 3:38:00 PM
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice Thursday.
Insight: Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf last Sunday going 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He has a much tougher assignment this week against the best defense in football - Seattle.
Eddie Lacy, RB, GBP1/15/2015 3:35:00 PM
Description: Packers running back Eddie Lacy was only a partial participant in Thursday's practice due to a sore knee.
Insight: Lacy had 19 carries for 101 yards last weekend and this was just coach Mike McCarthy being very conservative. plan to play him as always.
Griff Whalen, WR, IND1/15/2015 1:52:00 PM
Description: The Colts have added Griff Whalen to the roster for Sunday's game in New England.
Insight: He'll take the spot of Josh McNary who was placed on the exempt/commissioner permission list. He's likely to see special team work only and has no fantasy value.
DeMarco Murray, RB, DAL1/13/2015 10:07:00 AM
Description: For those keeper league owners assuming that Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is a top keeper option - beware.
Insight: Murray is a free agent so may not be running behind the strong Dallas offensive line next season. This season he was a workhorse, rushing the ball a total of 436 times including the playoffs and catching 61 balls. That's 497 touches! He could be overworked too.
Kevin Norwood, WR, SEA1/12/2015 3:55:00 PM
Description: Rookie wide receiver Kevin Norwood could see additional snaps with Paul Richardson done for the season due to a torn ACL.
Insight: Norwood didn't see much action this season, catching just nine balls for 102 yards and zero touchdowns, but could be the No. 3 option behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Or the Seahawks could go more double tight end formations.
Paul Richardson, WR, SEA1/12/2015 3:54:00 PM
Description: Seahawks speedster Paul Richardson's injured a knee has been diagnosed as a torn ACL and he's done for the playoffs.
Insight: He hasn't done much for fantasy owners this season (29-271-1) therefore his unavailablilty for the NFC chamampionship game shouldn't change many lineups.
Byron Maxwell, CB, SEA1/12/2015 3:00:00 PM
Description: Seattle cornerback Byron Maxwell (illness) missed a lot of snaps Saturday and is questionable for Sunday versus Green Bay.
Insight: The Seahawks would prefer to have him start over Tharold Simon, particular with the quality receiving corps of the Packers coming to town.
Peyton Manning, QB, DEN1/12/2015 2:57:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning played with a torn right quad over the last month, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: This would explain his significant drop in production. There could be a lot of movement in the front office with Denver, but assuming Manning returns the offense should be potent once again next season.
Julius Thomas, TE, DENCold1/11/2015 8:11:00 PM
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas looked poised to have another big day versus the Colts after the first drive, but had just an average fantasy day overall.
Insight: Thomas made a 32-yard catch on the opening offensive drive for Denver that brought the Broncos down to the two-yard line. On the next play, Peyton Manning targeted Thomas again in the end zone, and defensive holding was called on the incomplete pass. Remember, Thomas destroyed the Colts in the red zone during the Week 1 contest with three touchdown catches. That drive, however, ended with a Demaryius Thomas touchdown catch, and it was the only one of the day for Denver. J. Thomas finished with six catches and 53 yards.
Hakeem Nicks, WR, IND1/11/2015 8:08:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks had two receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown versus the Broncos in the AFC Division playoff game.
Insight: The touchdown saved Nicks from having another irrelevant fantasy day. Nicks caught a touchdown in both games against Denver this season, so this appears to be a matchup he liked in 2014.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN1/11/2015 8:06:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas had a decent fantasy day with five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Thomas caught the touchdown on the first offensive possession of the game, so he did little after that. Thomas also had two drops on screen passes in the second quarter, which owners say too often from him this season. There are a lot of question marks heading into the 2015 fantasy season for Thomas: will he be back in Denver and will Peyton Manning be the team's signal caller?
Dwayne Allen, TE, IND1/11/2015 8:04:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Dwayne Allen had four catches for 30 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Division round versus the Broncos.
Insight: Allen caught all four of his targets from Andrew Luck and scored a touchdown halfway through the second quarter to give Indianapolis the lead for good. With his size, Allen is a great target for Luck in the red zone.
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DEN1/11/2015 8:02:00 PM
Description: Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had seven catches to lead all Denver receivers.
Insight: Peyton Manning was really trying to get Sanders the ball on a deep pattern in the second quarter, but nothing was working. Sanders led the team with 15 targets but caught fewer than half of them for 46 yards. It was a disappointing end to an otherwise great first season in the Mile High City.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND1/11/2015 8:00:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving on Sunday.
Insight: Broncos top cornerback Aqib Talib could not cover Hilton, and Denver had to switch its coverages to stop Hilton. It will be interesting to see how Hilton does on Revis Island next week. Hilton finished with four catches and 72 yards versus Denver.
C.J. Anderson, RB, DENHot1/11/2015 7:58:00 PM
Description: Broncos running back C.J. Anderson carried the Denver offense at times on Sunday, but it wasn't enough.
Insight: Anderson gained 91 yards on 19 carries and had 29 more yards in the passing game. Anderson displayed great individual effort when he picked up a huge first down on the last play of the third quarter. On the play, the Colts had Anderson wrapped up for a five-yard loss, but Anderson wiggled out of the tackle and was able to pick up more than a yard. Just prior to that, Anderson helped the Broncos avoid a 15-yard penalty when he pushed offensive lineman Orlando Franklin away from the Colts defenders. Despite Anderson's intangibles, the Broncos lost, 24-13.
Dan Herron, RB, IND1/11/2015 7:53:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Dan Herron had 23 carries and gained 63 yards versus the Broncos.
Insight: Herron had a terrible rushing average, but he gave the Colts just enough balance for Andrew Luck to have a lot of success in the passing game. Indianapolis didn't even dress Trent Richardson, so Herron is clearly the best fantasy option in the Colts backfield.
Peyton Manning, QB, DEN1/11/2015 7:51:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did not look like himself, throwing for just 187 yards and a touchdown versus the Colts.
Insight: Credit the Colts defense for an excellent game plan. They tackled so well that the Broncos wide receiver screen game gained very few yards, and the down the field passing game for Denver was nonexistant. This could have very well been Manning's final game. Not the way fantasy owners or Broncos fans would like him to go out, but if it is his final game, there are a lot of regular season memories for fantasy owners. Unfortunately for Manning, not enough postseason memories.
Andrew Luck, QB, IND1/11/2015 7:49:00 PM
Description: Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a big day against the Broncos in the AFC Division round.
Insight: Luck did throw two interceptions, but he was 27-of-43 with 265 yards and two scores. Luck will play in his first AFC Championship Game next week.
Terrance Williams, WR, DAL1/11/2015 4:35:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams had another big January moment at Lambeau Field, catching a 38-yard touchdown pass in the first half.
Insight: That was, however, Williams' only catch of the game. He only had two targets.
