Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he's feeling explosive, healthy and is ready to play again.

Fantasy Tip: It's to be understood that teams would hesitate to sign Rice after his off-field domestic violence issue last season. Interest in Rice could gain steam as training camps begin and the start of the season approaches. Stay tuned.

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) has been working out daily to get in shape in case a NFL team becomes interested. Rice and his supporters have been contacting teams to try to get him another opportunity.
Fantasy Tip: It will be hard for teams to gain enough interest in Rice to sign him. Teams are staying away from Rice because of his off-field situation last year and because he is relatively old for a running back.

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints) ranked seventh among running backs with 45 catches last season, and only Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy graded higher at catching the ball, according to ProFootballFocus.com.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas' fantasy value is currently in limbo, but if he lands with a team that needs a reliable third-down back, he could be worth a late-round flier in PPR leagues.

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he expects to receive interest from teams once training camp begins. Johnson said he has been working out this season in preparation for the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be an option if a team loses a running back to an injury during camp. Johnson likely will not have a lot of value if he signs with a team since he probably will be a backup. Johnson could be a waiver wire option if he finds a solid role with a team.

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) wants to play one more year and has spoken to teams about signing.
Fantasy Tip: If Wayne landed in the right spot, he could be worth a WR5 flyer in PPR formats.
