NFL | Braxton Miller receiving help

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 15:05:54 -0800

Ohio State WR Braxton Miller indicated Tuesday, Feb. 9, that Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter is helping Miller prepare for the NFL Scouting Combine.

Fantasy Tip: Miller already impressed at the Senior Bowl. Any outside help, especially from former wide receivers like Carter, will only benefit Miller before the combine. Miller isn't expected to make a huge impact right away, but he could provide some good fantasy value as he becomes more polished.

NFL | League restricting prospects with convictions

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 07:24:58 -0800

The NFL sent out a memo in late January that prospects invited to "any league-related event" would be barred if a background check turns up a felony or misdemeanor conviction for domestic violence, sexual assault or weapons offenses. Players that refuse to submit to a background check will also be uninvited. This includes the NFL Scouting Combine and the NFL Draft. "It is important for us to remain strongly committed to league values as we demonstrate to our fans, future players, coaches, general managers, and others who support our game that character matters," NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent wrote in the memo.

NFL | Paxton Lynch will throw at combine

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 16:48:04 -0800

Memphis QB Paxton Lynch said Friday, Feb. 5, that he will take part in the passing drills at the NFL Scouting Combine. Lynch is among the top quarterback prospects available in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch has incredible size and athletic ability, and he could very well be a first-round pick that is tasked with starting immediately, depending on where he lands. Expect a period of adjustment in the NFL, though, as he transitions to a pro-style offense.

NFL | Carson Wentz a risky prospect?

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:06:44 -0800

North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz impressed many at Senior Bowl practices last week, but some NFL personnel executives are hesitant to label him a top quarterback prospect entering the 2016 NFL Draft. "One said 'Boy, that North Dakota State kid is way overrated.' And the other one texted me and said 'After watching him for a full week, there is no way I would draft Carson Wentz in the first round,'" NFL media analyst Lance Zierlein said on.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz could wind up going as high as No. 2 overall to the Cleveland Browns, who are looking for a franchise quarterback under new head coach Hue Jackson. Wentz has the tools to be a successful NFL quarterback, and if he's starting right away he'll surely experience growing pains. But he could be a decent backup in the right matchups.

NFL | Jared Goff to be active at combine

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 14:24:50 -0800

California QB Jared Goff said he will participate in all the drills, passing and otherwise, at the NFL combine.

Fantasy Tip: Sometimes highly touted quarterbacks with high stock like Goff will bow out of certain drills, but Goff is giving prospective teams the full gamut. He is projected among many experts and media outlets to be one of the first few of picks, but don't necessarily expect him to start right away.

NFL | Joseph Randle arrested for speeding

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 09:33:56 -0800

Free-agent RB Joseph Randle (Cowboys) was arrested Monday, Feb. 1, on a speeding charge in Irving, Texas. He was arrested near the home of his ex-girlfriend on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. Randle was taken into custody, and his bail was set at $359.

Fantasy Tip: After all of Randle's run-ins with the law, it'd be a surprise if another team takes a chance on him for the 2016 season. Don't expect him to be a fantasy asset at all for next year.

NFL | Carson Wentz delivers at Senior Bowl

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 20:53:08 -0800

North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz showed a "big arm," accuracy and decisiveness during the Senior Bowl Saturday, Jan. 30, according to Mike Mayock of NFL Media.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz could end up being the first quarterback taken in the 2016 NFL Draft, and at the very least, he is working his way into the conversation. If he lands with the right team, he could be worth scooping up in the later rounds of drafts.

NFL | Carson Wentz has met with four teams

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 15:58:12 -0800

North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz has met with the Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz is flying up mock draft boards after he has impressed during Senior Bowl practices this week. It seems likely that he'll be a first-round pick this year, and if he lands in a situation where he's thrown into a starting role immediately, he could turn out to be a decent QB2.

NFL | Braxton Miller meets with seven teams

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 15:54:48 -0800

Ohio State WR Braxton Miller has met with the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Rams and New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is a former quarterback transitioning to a receiver, and he has impressed during Senior Bowl practices this week. But he'll need much more polish before we can say he'll make an impact at the next level. He might be worth a late-round flier in deep fantasy leagues next fall.
