QB | Andrew Luck | Indianapolis Colts | Fantasy
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck said he is very comfortable with the offense that offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is bringing to the team. "I am 100 percent more comfortable," Luck said. "On this day last year, I was probably sitting in class. It is nice to be able to have the full offseason with the team. We have changed (offensive) coordinators, but I have had a great relationship with Pep Hamilton from before. To be around him and talk his style of offense has been great. It is just nice to be around the guys."


Running Back

RB | John Clay | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Cincinnati Bengals have free-agent FB John Clay (Steelers) in camp on a tryout basis.

RB | Mark Ingram | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is fully healthy for the first time since entering the NFL.

RB | Eddie Lacy | Green Bay Packers | Injury, Fantasy
Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (toe) didn't have toe fusion surgery before his senior year at Alabama. It was a surgery to correct turf toe. Unlike the typical toe fusion surgery - which hardens the toe completely, limiting mobility - only the bone on the tip of Lacy's big toe was fused. "The joint underneath the toenail was fused to allow the ligament to work better basically," Alabama's team doctor E. Lyle Cain Jr. said. "It's something you do to give you a better push-off. His big toe moves just like a normal big toe in terms of motion... If you fused it completely, it'd give you a stiff big toe and you can't push off and that's a big problem. In Eddie's case, he does not have that. His fusion does not affect his big-toe motion."

RB | LeSean McCoy | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he expects to have a very productive season in head coach Chip Kelly's offense in 2013. "We have tons of different sets with different backs. You run so much," McCoy said. "There are so many different fast-paced movements from motioning out, from running routes and things like that. It's so open. You're trying to get guys in the open field. This is a good offense." McCoy said he expects RBs Bryce Brown and Chris Polk to receive playing time because of the type of offense the team will use.

RB | Mikel Leshoure | Detroit Lions | Fantasy
Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure faced an eight-man defensive front in only 6.05 percent of his carries last season, which is less than any other rusher with at least 100 carries.

RB | Pierre Thomas | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas said head coach Sean Payton wants more focus on the running game this season. "There's going to be more focus this year on that ground game than any year. He said we've got to get back to running the ball, having 100-yard games non-stop. I can't wait. I'm excited and I know everybody else is excited," Payton said.

WR | Anquan Boldin | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy
The Baltimore Ravens could use more two tight end sets in 2013 to help overcome the loss of WR Anquan Boldin. "We've got some tight ends who can pick up the slack," assistant general manager Eric DeCosta siad. "Ed Dickson made some big plays last year in the Super Bowl, really played his best football in the playoffs. We're excited to see him become what we thought he was going to be. We really think this is his chance to become a really good tight end in the NFL. Obviously, we've got Dennis Pitta, we've got Torrey Smith. We've got playmakers. We're excited about what we can do on offense."

We're excited about what we can do on offense."

TE | Delanie Walker | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker said he expects to be a part of the passing game this season because he will be given more of an opportunity to catch passes than he received when he was with the San Francisco 49ers.
