NFL | Randy Gregory to fall out of top 10?

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 16:25:45 -0700

Nebraska LB Randy Gregory is expected to fall outside of the top-10 draft picks in this year's NFL Draft after he failed a drug test for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, according to NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah. Jeremiah still thinks that Gregory will come off the board in the first round, though. Gregory tested positive for marijuana twice in college, but his latest failed test puts him in the league's substance abuse program.

NFL | Marcus Mariota to go second overall?

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 10:03:34 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota will be selected with the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, in the opinion of an unnamed NFL general manager that is paying close attention to Mariota's market.

Fantasy Tip: The Tennessee Titans hold the No. 2 pick but they could trade the pick to a team looking for a starting quarterback. Mariota likely will compete for a starting job wherever he goes and would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins a starting job.

NFL | Breshad Perriman posts fast 40 time

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:56:43 -0700

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.3 seconds at his Pro Day Wednesday, March 25.

Fantasy Tip: Perriman likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds of the NFL Draft, and this time should only help his value. Perriman could be a later-round option in fantasy drafts, but owners should not count on him to be a consistent option.

NFL | Ray Rice hasn't had workouts

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 14:39:55 -0700

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) hasn't had a workout with a team since he was released by the Baltimore Ravens after his domestic violence case.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that he'll be signed to play anywhere again since he hasn't had any looks at this point. You can count Rice out for fantasy football purposes in 2015, as of now.

NFL | New safety rules passed

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:41:57 -0700

NFL owners passed four player safety rules during meetings Tuesday, March 24. The league expanded the protection for receivers who are defenseless players. A new rule gives them protection following an interception, which would trigger a 15-yard penalty. The chop block was made illegal by running backs outside the tight end, resulting in a 15-yard penalty. Peel-back blocks were abolished by all offensive players, resulting in a 15-yard penalty. A rule that makes it illegal to push a teammate into the line was expanded, as well, to include punts and place kicks, which would result in a five-yard penalty.

NFL | Ahmad Bradshaw trial update

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:25:16 -0700

Updating previous reports, free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts) did not have any additional drugs aside from marijuana when he was charged with a misdemeanor marijuana count while driving, according to crime lab tests. Bradshaw has pleaded not guilty and has a pretrial conference scheduled for April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw's fantasy value is a long way from being properly gauged at this point. Wait and see how the trial turns out and if he's signed by anyone following that situation.
