Gronk Most Certainly Still The Top TE Even With Brady Suspended
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been suspended four games for his role in DeflateGate.

Fantasy Spin:
New England has also lost their 2016 first-round pick and 2017 fourth-rounder, along with being handed a $1 million fine. Brady will likely appeal the suspension, which could potentially be reduced to two or three games. No matter what, Jimmy Garoppolo will likely start Week 1 against the Steelers.

C Anderson (DEN)

Broncos Former OC Rips CJ Anderson
Former Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said running back C.J. Anderson was not in great shape, struggling with his conditioning at times last season according to the Chicago Tribune.

Fantasy Spin:
That would make sense as Anderson seemed to tire over the season. He had just a 3.8 yard per carry average in December. Still, he averaged 4.7 yards per attempt over the whole season, rushing for 849 yards and scoring 10 total touchdowns. That wasn't bad for a waiver wire pickup midway through the season, but it will be intriguing where he lands on the Denver depth chart this year and consequently, where he falls in fantasy drafts. New coach Gary Kubiak has not assured Anderson a starting role in the backfield.

Suspension Looming For Tom Brady
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could face discipline for his invovlement in "Deflategate" according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Spin:
The Ted Wells report didn't have definitive evidence, but one can connect the dots and figure out that Brady instructed the Patriots equipment staff to decrease the air in the footballs. It is possible that Brady will be suspended the first game of the season, which would mean the NFL opener would be without Brady and Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell. As far as fantasy, if Brady misses just one game, it should effect his preseason value.

Blount To Be Patriots Workhorse RB?
Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount coukld be in for a huge season ... assuming he can stay out of trouble and Bill Belichick's doghouse.

Fantasy Spin:
The Pats lost Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley in the offseason, but didn't replace them at the draft. That should leave Blount as the workhorse.

C Palmer (ARI)

Carson Palmer Already Participating In Some Drills
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (torn left ACL) was participating in drills Monday, according to an azcardinals.com report.

Fantasy Spin:
At this point, we fell he should be ready for the opening week. Palmer was missed by both the Cardinals and fantasy owners and his return in time for training camp would greatly increase the value of Arizona receivers and the offense in general.

J Jones (OAK)

Raiders Cut James Jones
Raiders receiver James Jones was released.

Fantasy Spin:
The aging veteran was replaced by Michael Crabtree and first-round pick Amari Cooper. It was just a few years ago (2012) that Jones amassed 14 touchdown catches with Green Bay, but he's never been a fantasy stud. He could latch on somewhere but his days with fantasy value are over.

Bucs Don't Pickup Doug Martin's 5th Year Option
Buccaneers running back Doug Martin finished the 2014 season strong, but his 2016 option wasn't picked up and he may not be part of the team's long-term plans.

Fantasy Spin:
Martin has never come close to matching his 2012 production (1,454 yards, 11 TDs on the ground) and the Bucs seem to be moving toward second-year RB Charles Sims.

Bucs Look To Feature Charles Sims In 2015
The Buccaneers want second-year running back Charles Sims to be the "feature" back this season, according to the Pewter Report.

Fantasy Spin:
While Sims may turn into Tampa Bay's lead back, there is too much uncertainty surrounding the Buccaneers backfield for us to recommend starting him ... yet. He played the final eight games in 2014, averaging just 2.8 ypg, but caught 19 balls for 190 yards. Lovie Smith seems to like his pass-catching ability and Doug Martin could be on his way out of town.

A Morris (WAS)

Gruden Commits To Alfred Morris As Lead RB
Washington coach Jay Gruden confirmed with ESPN that running back Alfred Morris will continue to see a majority of the carries next season.

Fantasy Spin:
Washington took Florida running back Matt Jones in the third round, but Gruden reassured Morris that Jones is only going to provide the position depth. Roy Helu, who was Morris' backup, left the team via free agency. Morris had his worst season of his career last year, but he could be a bounce back candidate with offensive line guru Bill Callahan in town and No. 5 overall pick right tackle Brandon Scherff the team's newest blocker.

A Ellington (ARI)

Arians "Says" Ellington Still Cards Workhorse
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told ESPN that running back Andre Ellington will keep the same role he had last season before his injury.

Fantasy Spin:
Arizona did address the running back position in the draft, but the team picked Northern Iowa running back David Johnson, who is not a true workhorse. Johnson, like Ellington, is better in the receiving game, so he really will only be Ellington's backup. Hopefully, Ellington can completely recover from his foot injury and produce more than last season. After he averaged 5.5 yards per attempt his rookie season, he only averaged 3.3 yards per attempt in 2014.

Z Stacy (NYJ)

Jets and Rams Agree On Trade, Send Zac Stacy To New York
Running back Zac Stacy has apparently been traded to the Jets.

Fantasy Spin:
Stacy will compete for playing time with Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley, but will likely not be much of a fantasy factor in New York.

Dolphins Draft Another Receiver After Taking Parker In 1st Round
The Dolphins needed WR help this offseason and added Tony Lippett from MSU in the fifth round.

Fantasy Spin:
The 2014 Big Ten Wide Receiver of the Year, finished his Michigan State career with 149 catches for 2,247 yards and 15 TDs, but ran a 4.61 at the Combine and seems to have limited value behind Jarvis Landry, top pick DeVante Parker and recently acquired Kenny Stills.

F Jackson (BUF)
L McCoy (BUF)

Bills Draft Fred Jackson Heir Apparent, FSU's Karlos Williams
The Bills selected RB Karlos Williams of Florida State in the fifth round.

Fantasy Spin:
Not a great landing spot for Williams, what with LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson in front of him. He's a project at best and fantasy owners should wait and see how the project turns out.
06:36 PM
L Miller (MIA)

Dolphins Steal RB Jay Ajayi In 5th Round
The Miami Dolphins added running back help with a fifth-round selection from Boise State - Jay Ajayi.

Fantasy Spin:
Ajayi might have been a second-day selection except for worries about a right knee issue. At Boise he rushed for 3,796 yards and 50 touchdowns and caught 73 balls. He ran a 4.57 40 at the Combine.
06:29 PM
A Rodgers (GBP)

Somewhat Surprising, Packers Draft QB Brett Hundley
The Green Bay Packers selected quarterback Brett Hundley in the fifth round.

Fantasy Spin:
No, Aaron Rodgers isn't going anywhere for the next few years, but we may have a glimpse of life after Rodgers. He should certainly be able to beat out Scott Tolzien for the backup role.
