Seahawks | Eric Winston provides depth

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:38:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks OT Eric Winston has played most of his career at right tackle, so his signing may mean the team isn't happy with OT Justin Britt, who has received all of the first-team snaps in training camp. OT Michael Bowie (shoulder), who was expected to compete for the starting job, is out due to injury. Britt has looked good in run blocking but has struggled with pass blocking.

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:14:15 -0700

New York Jets WR David Nelson (groin) left practice early Tuesday, July 29.

FANTASY TIP: Obviously something to keep an eye on. Check back later when there is an update from the team.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw looking good

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:13:03 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been consistent so far in camp, and he's not showing any limitations with his neck, which caused him to miss the final 13 games of last season. "He looks fantastic," head coach Chuck Pagano said. "He has found the groove to make it. We know how tough Ahmad is. We know how he's wired, so I'm not going to be pulling back on the reins. He's one of those guys we have to protect them from themselves. It will take care of itself. He's not one of those guys that will think about what he went through."

FANTASY TIP: Bradshaw is an interesting fantasy option. He's extremely risky because of his health, but if he enters the season fully healthy and Trent Richardson continues to be bothered by injuries or poor performance, Bradshaw could easily usurp him as the top back for the Colts. Bradshaw's stock is slowly rising right now.

Seahawks | Taylor Price to IR

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:02:22 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks placed WR Taylor Price (undisclosed) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, July 29, and also released CB Chandler Fenner and OG Bronson Irwin and signed free-agent WR Randall Carroll (Vikings) to an undisclosed deal.

Giants | Odell Beckahm Jr. to miss first preseason game

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:58:46 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) will not play in the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 3.

FANTASY TIP: This is not a surprise as Beckham Jr. has not practiced much at all to this point in training camp.

Steelers | Dri Archer lining up everywhere

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:54:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Dri Archer has been lining up at both running back and wide receiver in practice. Archer said he could line up anywhere on the offense except at quarterback.

Yankees | Not looking at Justin Masterson

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:54:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson is not on the radar of the New York Yankees as the trade deadline approaches, although they continue to look for starting pitching upgrades. It's a gamble to trade for Masterson, since he has been on the disabled list with an inflamed right knee and will be making his first start back Friday, Aug. 1, a day after the deadline.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon injury minor

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:42:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (hamstring) could return to practice Wednesday, July 30, after suffering a minor hamstring injury in practice. "I'll be good," Garcon said. "No need to really rush it, or trying put everything to the wall right now. It is the first week of training camp."

FANTASY TIP: Not a surprise that the team would be cautious with Garcon this early in camp. This does not sound like something to be concerned with.

Browns | Will be active in WR market

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:35:57 -0700

The Cleveland Browns are expected to be active in exploring free-agent wide receivers. Their receiving corps doesn't have much size outside of likely suspended WR Josh Gordon. WRs Miles Austin and Nate Burleson have long injury histories. Cleveland may pursue CFL standout Duron Carter, son of Hall of Famer Cris Carter.

FANTASY TIP: Andrew Hawkins could be a candidate to emerge out of the slot, but he's anything but tall. We wouldn't throw much at any of the non-Gordon wideouts until Cleveland finalizes its roster and depth chart.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. injury update

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:27:22 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said tests taken Monday, July 28, revealed blood in the hamstring. Beckham said he felt good when he entered training camp.

FANTASY TIP: Beckham still has some work to do to get back on the field. The good news is that it is early in training camp and Beckham will still have plenty of time to get back in the mix.

Red Sox | Jon Lester's demands didn't lead to trade talk

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:22:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester's agent denied a report that claimed that Lester's representatives told the Red Sox what it would take to sign him, which led the team to consider trading him. The report said Lester was seeking "a competitive offer consistent with the market" and speculated that would be in the range of $22 million to $24 million per year. Lester remains firm on his desire to wait until after the season to discuss a contract extension.
