NFL | League to appeal Adrian Peterson ruling

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 12:31:35 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's suspension being vacated by a judge is expected to be appealed by the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: There is still a good chance that Peterson will be ready to play in 2015, but owners will need to monitor the situation to see if there are any changes to his status. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy running back and a first-round option next season if he plays.

NFL | Josh McCown to decide by next week

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 04:38:20 -0800

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) is expected to decide on a new team by early next week. The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns are considered strong suitors.

Fantasy Tip: McCown could start in Buffalo, but Cleveland is a situation where he could end up throwing until Johnny Manziel is truly ready. Wait and see where he lands. For now, McCown is a QB2 option who could drop to QB3.

NFL | Jameis Winston a risk first overall?

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 13:09:24 -0800

Florida State QB Jameis Winston impressed scouts at the NFL scouting combine over the weekend, but NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock is unsure if he is worth the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft. "I don't know yet," Mayock said. "I take (Winston) No. 1 from a talent perspective. I'm all over it from a talent perspective, but I would have to do more homework off the field because, right now, he scares me. He was the face of Florida State football, and he continued to make bad decisions off the field." Winston's pro day is March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Winston appears to have all the physical skills necessary to excel in the NFL eventually, but the mental side and off-field issues are what's in question. If Winston is starting on an NFL team in his rookie season right away, he probably won't be worth anything more than a weak QB2 selection on draft day.

NFL | Jameis Winston a lock for top pick?

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 20:52:58 -0800

Florida State University QB Jameis Winston impressed coaches and talent evaluators with his arm and his intelligence at the NFL Scouting Combine. "The kid is great on the board, and he can sling the hell out the ball," said one general manager who has drafted a quarterback first overall. "I don't see how they cannot take him."

Fantasy Tip: If Winston does go No. 1 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he is worth taking a flier on in two-quarterback leagues. His ability to throw the deep ball should also help the value of receiver Mike Evans.

NFL | Melvin Gordon in rare company at combine

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 18:58:14 -0800

University of Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon ranked second among running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine with a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.07 seconds, and his 60-yard shuttle time of 11.00 seconds was the best by a running back in the past decade.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has a chance to be the first running back off the board in the 2015 NFL Draft, and depending on where he lands, he could be a serviceable fantasy option as a rookie.

NFL | Jameis Winston historically rated

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:44:29 -0800

Florida State QB Jameis Winston will be the second-highest rated quarterback prospect in the last 10 years (Andrew Luck being first) by ESPN draft guru Todd McShay.

Fantasy Tip: Winston will likely be drafted by either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the No. 1 overall pick or by the Tennessee Titans with the second overall pick. No matter who he plays for, he shouldn't be considered a starting fantasy quarterback until he shows us what he can do on the professional level.
