Rookie RB Yeldon Expected To Be Starter For Jags
Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon is being called the starter both from local writers and the official team website.

Fantasy Spin:
Yeldon is in front of Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Storm Johnson and Bernard Pierce. We will see whether he can stay there.

Adrian Peterson Ends Holdout, Shows Up At OTAs

Minnesota Vikings running back, Adrian Peterson, decided to end his very public frustration with the Vikings and showed up to the team's OTAs. 



Fantasy Spin:

Despite some rumors this off-season about Peterson refusing to play for the Vikings and demanding a trade, it appears as if the Minnesota RB will in fact be in Purple and Yellow this season. When discussing why he showed up at OTAs, Peterson admitted it was time to re-familiarize himself with the Offense and get back to work. Considering Peterson only played one game last year in this Offense, there is certainly a lot for him to "re-learn." We love the fact Norv Turner is still calling plays and expect Peterson to get around 350 touches this season. He'll be a top 5 pick during draft season.

Gronk Heading Into OTAs and Training Camp Fully Healthy
Unlike the past few season, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will head into OTAs and training camp completely healthy. Knock on wood.

Fantasy Spin:
With run-happy Seattle now the home of Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski should be the unanimous No. 1 fantasy tight end option.

Sleeper Alert: Tevin Coleman To Push For Atlanta's Starting RB Job
Atlanta Falcons rookie running back Tevin Coleman (No. 73 overall pick in the third round) will get a chence to start if he can beat out Devonta Freeman.

Fantasy Spin:
Coleman was a very productive runner in college (Indiana), rushing for 3,219 yards and 28 touchdowns in 452 career rushes. Coleman's progress as a pass protector will likely determine whether he gets the starting gig.

NFL Sets Tom Brady Appeal Date For June 23
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have his appeal heard on June 23.

Fantasy Spin:
At least we should know the final suspension total before training camps begin. No matter what, Jimmy Garoppolo will likely start Week 1 against the Steelers. The question is whether the league will cut anything off the announced four-game suspension.

Broncos Starting RB Job Up For Grabs?
Broncos running backs C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball are splitting first-team reps at Denver OTAs this week according to 9 News Denver.

Fantasy Spin:
The Broncos new coaching staff wants to have an open competition at the position, but Anderson is still the heavy favorite to start. Owners must have whoever start in Peyton Manning's backfield, especially in Gary Kubiak's running back friendly offense.

McCown NOT Manziel Getting Browns 1st Team Reps
Browns quarterback Josh McCown opened their OTA as the starting quarterback, notes beat reporter Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Spin:
As expected McCown is ahead of Johnny Manziel, but it's a long time from May until Opening Day in September.

Joseph Randle Getting All 1st Team Reps With Cowboys
Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is expected to be the starter come Week 1, according to a Dallas Morning News report.

Fantasy Spin:
That's assuming, of course, the Cowboys backfield choices are between Randle, Darren McFadden, Ryan Williams and Lance Dunbar.

James White To Replace Shane Vereen As Pats Passing Back
Patriots' second-year running back James White will be one of three guys seeking to take over the Shane Vereen role.

Fantasy Spin:
White will battle with Travaris Cadet and Dion Lewis for the Patriots' third-down role. Of course, starting any New England running back is always an "adventure." Watch this competition in preseason, but the likelihood is that only LeGarrette Blount will be fantasy worthy.

Marvin Jones Ready For Action After Injury Plagued 2014 Season
Bengals receiver Marvin Jones has been cleared for OTAs, according to a bengals.com report.

Fantasy Spin:
Jones caught 51 balls for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013 and made the Bengals passing game much more explosive with him playing opposition A.J. Green. If he's back and healthy, fantasy owners shouldn't forget how good he was two seasons ago.

J Matthews (PHI)

Eagles Rookie Nelson Agholor Will Make Immediate Impact
Eagles rookie receiver Nelson Agholor figures to start from Week 1, according to reports.

Fantasy Spin:
Given the other options, this probably isn't shocking news. Last year's rookie, Jordan Matthews, and Agholor should carry the majority of the wide receiver workload with tight end Zach Ertz roaming in the middle. Don't expect much from Josh Huff, Riley Cooper or Miles Austin.

Adrian Peterson Holding Out, Vikings Won't Trade Him
Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson is skipping OTAs and workouts and appears to still want to be traded, according to a Yahoo Sports report.

Fantasy Spin:
He's under contract and doesn't have much leverage in this battle of wills. Plus his monster contract ($12.75 million in 2015) would be hard for other teams (read Dallas) to absorb.

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.

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.
