Bills | Marcell Dareus out of shape

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 15:14:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus failed his conditioning test, which is why he was put on the inactive list.

Giants | Chris Snee to meet with team

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 15:00:04 -0700

New York Giants OG Chris Snee (elbow) will meet with team officials Monday, July 21, to discuss his future. His elbow isn't doing well, and retirement is an option. However, not decision has been made yet.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart to be workhorse

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 14:39:27 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart will be the team's workhorse, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

FANTASY TIP: You shouldn't get too excited about this revelation because the team has to be in the game or have a lead in order for him to run the ball consistently. It was reported earlier this offseason that he'd receive 12-15 carries per game. That is still likely, with a possibility for more. He's a good RB3 with upside.

Jaguars | Bradie Ewing to battle at FB

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 14:34:12 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars FB Bradie Ewing will battle FB Will Ta'ufo'ou for the starting fullback spot in camp.

Jaguars | Storm Johnson at RB4

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 14:31:21 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Storm Johnson will enter camp as the fourth running back, but the team is excited about his potential. "Storm is going to run at the same speed as (Toby Gerhart) and maybe a hair faster, but he's strong and really compact," offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said. "He has incredible vision and lower body strength."

FANTASY TIP: Johnson could be a worthwhile addition to a dynasty league, but he'd need a bevy of injuries or an amazing camp to contribute much this season.

Jaguars | Two RB roles shaping out

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 14:24:26 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Jordan Todman is viewed as a change-of-pace back, along with RB Denard Robinson, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. "Those two guys are truly change-of-pace backs," Fisch said. "Jordan really intrigues us with his burst, speed and acceleration… I'm excited about Denard."

FANTASY TIP: Todman has value as a RB4 or a handcuff to Toby Gerhart if he becomes the clear backup running back.

Seahawks | Michael Bowie's fitness not up to par

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 13:55:02 -0700

Seattle Seahawks OT Michael Bowie has had an uneven spring with coaches saying he could have been in better shape. He'll compete with OT Justin Britt at right tackle.

Seahawks | Three to take on larger roles

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 13:50:38 -0700

Seattle Seahawks DT Jordan Hill, DT Jesse Williams and CB Tharold Simon will take on larger roles in their second season in 2014. Hill could be a potential starter in nickel packages.

Seahawks | Luke Willson likely to see increased time

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 13:45:58 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Luke Willson will be TE Zach Miller's backup this season, but he's likely to see increased playing time.

Seahawks | Christine Michael doing well

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 13:22:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael's work this spring has done nothing to dismiss the thought that he will receive regular carries this season.

FANTASY TIP: It's still not known how many he'll receive, but Marshawn Lynch remains the lead back. Lynch is a low-end RB1, and Michael is a RB4 with upside.
