NFL | Drug testing agreement reached

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 06:32:03 -0700

The NFL and NFLPA have reached an agreement to a new drug testing policy. An announcement is expected soon.

Fantasy Tip: Wes Welker may be eligible to play in Week 3. He is priced at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore, but they are playing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. He's a cheap gamble to take, but temper expectations. Josh Gordon could be eligible to return later this season as well.
