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.

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.

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.

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.
