Quarterback

QB | Brett Favre | Retired | Fantasy
ESPN.com reports Green Bay Packers retired QB Brett Favre's reinstatement was delayed again Friday, Aug. 1, as he was mulling over whether or not he would accept a marketing deal with the Packers.

Although Leftwich looked good in the workout, head coach Jeff Fisher said the team will not sign him at this time. "He was in really good shape. He threw the ball really well, has an exceptionally strong arm and really appreciated the opportunity," Fisher said. "He is someone that we would definitely be interested in if we had a problem." Leftwich said the team made no promises to him.

RB | Ladell Betts | Washington Redskins | Fantasy

"I see Ladell playing a lot and complementing what Clinton does, and I see us having the chance to play them both at the same time," Zorn said. "I look at Ladell and Clinton as similar runners. Good zone runners, excellent pass blockers and guys who do a really nice job in pass patterns. We haven't had that in my experience."

RB | LaDainian Tomlinson | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
Kevin Acee, of the San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson is adjusting to life without RB Michael Turner with the team. Tomlinson has been spelled by Turner often in past years but now he is in a wait-and-see mode in regards to the team's other backs. "I think it will be different," Tomlinson said. "In my mind I'm going to have to feel like I have to stay in the game. With Michael, I said, 'I've got Michael over there. Let me take a quick break.' I started to take it for granted that I could take a break, and Michael would go in. With the situation we have, it might take a while to get to that point again," Tomlinson said. That's not acceptable for head coach Norv Turner, who said Tomlinson cannot put it on himself to make the decision and they have to find another back they trust to go in and do things for them.

RB | Darren Sproles | San Diego Chargers | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Kevin Acee, of the San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers RBs Darren Sproles and Jacob Hester should be considered the 2 and 2A backs on the depth chart at this time. "He's power, and I'm a slasher," Sproles said of Hester. "I think we set up real good. If they want to pound it, they'll put Hester in." Hester will likely be used as a short-yardage runner as well as a primary blocker. There is also a chance he could see time at fullback.
