Fantasy football players in the news

By KFFL Staff


Quarterback

QB | Joe Flacco | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said the team feels confident heading into the Super Bowl. "We feel confident as a group...we can't come in here and try and do too much or do what we've done in the past," Flacco said.

QB | Alex Smith | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said QB Alex Smith has done more than anyone to prepare QB Colin Kaepernick for games. "He's prepared and been involved in the game planning, in preparations, he's prepared himself as the starter each week," Harbaugh said of Smith. "That's what he's done, that's what we expect of him and that's what he has delivered. Another person really to credit in Colin's success because Alex has really helped coach Colin and has been right there by his side. Sitting there in meetings every single day. He coaches Colin now more than I do, and that speaks high of the kind of person and teammate that Alex Smith is."

QB | Philip Rivers | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
San Diego Chargers quarterback's coach Frank Reich is happy with his new position with the Chargers. Reich feels like it is a great situation to be working with QB Philip Rivers. "(I was intrigued) to come to a place where there's a quarterback like Philip Rivers," he continued. "Philip's reputation is that he's a competitor. I think that's what everybody respects most about him. When you think of Philip, you think of a guy who is a competitor and led one of the more prolific offenses for a good stretch. He at one point led the best offense in the league, and that's not easy to do because there are a lot of good players in this league. During that stretch, he was at the top of the game. He was a legitimate MVP candidate, so I'm excited to work with a guy who is a good competitor and a great player. That combination - that's a good combination."

QB | Michael Vick | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy
The Philadelphia Eagles are not expected to make a quick decision about QB Michael Vick's future with the team even though $3 million of his $16.5 million deal becomes guaranteed if he is on the roster Feb. 6. The team does not see the guaranteed money as a big deal at this time and are determining how much they are willing to pay him if he remains on the team and they ask him to take a pay cut. Vick is not interested in taking a significant pay cut but may be willing to make a small pay cut.

QB | Peyton Manning | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway said he expects the offense to improve with QB Peyton Manning entering his second year with the team and also expects Manning to improve his play. "He's much more comfortable with being in the organization," Elway said, "and we think we'll continue to see the growth. There were a lot of unanswered questions for him in that first year and he got a lot of them answered. We know what he's got now is good. We saw what he could do this year. It's only going to get better."

QB | Matt Flynn | Seattle Seahawks | Fantasy
The Kansas City Chiefs are likely to add a veteran quarterback in the offseason such as San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith or Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Flynn. The Chiefs will probably take a flier on a quarterback in the draft this spring in the second round.

WR | Mike Wallace | Pittsburgh Steelers | Free Agents
The Pittsburgh Steelers are not expected to be willing to pay impending free-agent WR Mike Wallace the $10 million to $11 million per season he will be looking for but do expect other teams to value him that highly.

WR | Devin Aromashodu | Minnesota Vikings | Free Agents
The Minnesota Vikings could consider re-signing impending free-agent WR Devin Aromashodu this offseason but likely only to a one-year deal with minimal guarantees.


Tight End

TE | Rob Gronkowski | New England Patriots | Fantasy
The New England Patriots are likely to focus their attention on building their wide receiver depth both through free agency and the draft. They need wideout insurance in case TEs Rob Gronkowski or Aaron Hernandez suffer more injuries and are forced to miss time.

TE | Jared Cook | Tennessee Titans | Free Agents
The St. Louis Rams could pursue Tennessee Titans impending free-agent TE Jared Cook if he becomes available in free agency.

TE | Dustin Keller | Free Agent | Free Agents, Fantasy
