Fantasy football players in the news

By KFFL Staff


Quarterback

QB | Kevin Kolb | Buffalo Bills | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said he believes not believe his experience in the NFL gives him an edge in the quarterback competition with QB EJ Manuel. "I wouldn't say it's an advantage against EJ, but it's an advantage for me personally to be able to lean back on those type of things and those type of situations," Kolb said. "You don't have stay up at night worrying about things that I did when I was a young player."


Running Back

RB | Michael Bush | Chicago Bears | Injury
Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush (shoulder) said he played most of 2012 with a fractured bone in his right shoulder.

WR | Golden Tate | Seattle Seahawks | Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy
Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate is not concerned about his contract, and is not going to affect how he goes about his business in 2013. Tate wants to stay with the Seahawks long term. "For me, I'm not treating it any different than any other year," Tate said. "I'm gonna show up to work, work hard. I'm not worried about any contract talk. I'm just gonna pray on it and hopefully it works out and I'm in Seattle for a long time."

WR | Lavelle Hawkins | New England Patriots | Depth Chart Tidbit
New England Patriots WR Lavelle Hawkins is likely to get an opportunity to return punts in the preseason.


Offensive Tackle

OT | Tyler Polumbus | Washington Redskins | Depth Chart Tidbit
Washington Redskins OT Tyler Polumbus is hoping that an offseason devoted to working on his drawbacks will lead to better pass protection in 2013. "If there was a drawback to Tyler last year, he had to solidify his protection," Redskins offensive line coach Chris Foerster said at last month's minicamp. "There was probably too much push in the pocket. He worked hard to correct that this offseason; we'll see how that plays out."


Guard

OG | Shelley Smith | St. Louis Rams | Depth Chart Tidbit
St. Louis Rams OG Shelley Smith could push OG Chris Williams for the starting left guard job during training camp. C Barrett Jones could be a candidate for the job if neither player wins the job.


Linebacker

LB | Mark Herzlich | New York Giants | Depth Chart Tidbit
New York Giants LB Mark Herzlich is excited about the opportunity that is available with three open starting LB positions in 2013. "It is an opportunity you get excited about," Herzlich said. "You get opportunities in your life and it's how you handle them, whether you fold and get nervous -- and then obviously you won't get that spot -- but my plan is to be confident, to learn as much as I can at all times, to get my body ready. Once my body is ready, I know my mind is the biggest thing. And if you know what you're doing before you do it then you play faster."


Cornerback

CB | Morris Claiborne | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne is happy with new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, and that Kiffin's age is not a factor for him. "I hear guys saying he's too old, and we should be wearing leather helmets and all that type of stuff," Claiborne said. "If you go into the meetings with him and on the field with this guy, you'd think he was 27 years old. He runs around. He's always upbeat, and we feed off of that. He's always screaming, hollering, jumping around like he's 27 years old."
