NFL | Todd Gurley checks out fine medically

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 07:27:56 -0700

Georgia RB Todd Gurley (knee) has been undergoing tests in Indianapolis Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, on his surgically repaired knee and everything checked out fine, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gurley is expected to be selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft and could be the first running back selected. It is not known if Gurley will be a starter with his new team, but he could be a late-round option in fantasy drafts next season.

NFL | Jaelen Strong medically cleared

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 07:26:54 -0700

Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong (wrist) underwent several medical tests during his visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers and has cleared by their doctors. The Steelers will send the results of his tests to other teams so he does not have to be re-checked in Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Strong will be ready for at least the start of training camp after being cleared by the doctors. Strong is expected to be selected in one of the first few rounds of the draft and could be a late-round option on fantasy leagues next season if he has a solid role in his new offense.

NFL | Chris Johnson working out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:46:56 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (shoulder) has been working out even though he was shot in the shoulder during a drive by shooting last month. Johnson has received interest from several teams.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has not signed with a team at this point and may have wait until after the draft to find a new team. Johnson likely will be a backup next season and may not be worth a drafting in leagues next season.

NFL | Jameis Winston sued for assault

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:19:00 -0700

Florida State QB Jameis Winston has been sued for sexual assault Thursday, April 16, stemming from an incident in 2012. The lawsuit includes charges of sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress.

Fantasy Tip: Winston's off-field issues continue. The lawsuit comes two weeks before the NFL Draft, and shortly following Winston's public desire for his off-field behavior not to impact his ability as a professional quarterback. Obviously this case won't be solved before the draft, and Winston should still be an early first-round selection, but it could remind teams that Winston might be a locker room disruption.

NFL | Jaelen Strong doesn't need surgery

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:32:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong (wrist) said he will not need surgery on his broken wrist.

Fantasy Tip: The injury will likely still have a negative impact on Strong's draft stock, though he could still be taken in the first round. As with any rookie, it's tough to appropriately gauge their fantasy value until their team is known.

NFL | Jaelen Strong may need surgery

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:59:50 -0700

Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong (wrist) will likely need surgery due to a broken bone in his wrist. Strong was considered by many experts to be a first-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: The surgery would certainly hurt Strong's draft stock, but he could still make an impact this season, in real life and from a fantasy football perspective, if he is able to fully heal in time, which he should.

NFL | Marcus Mariota scores 33 on Wonderlic

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 06:08:57 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota reportedly scored a 33 on the Wonderlic aptitude test at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Fantasy Tip: Mariota is expected to be a high pick in the first round of the NFL Draft. He'll be worth a late flyer as a QB2 late in deep fantasy drafts.

NFL | Jameis Winston solid on Wonderlic

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:05:08 -0700

Florida State QB Jameis Winston posted a score of 27 on the Wonderlic test, administered at the annual NFL Scouting Combine. Wonderlic scores are becoming less relevant in draft equations, they still carry weight at some decision-making positions such as quarterback, an AFC personnel source said.

Fantasy Tip: Winston scored one point lower than Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning in 1998, and his score falls in line with most current NFL starters. One thing is clear, and that is that his test score will not scare any teams off.
