D Jackson (PHI)

Trade Out Of Philly Could Crush D-Jax's Fantasy Value
Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson now appears to be fully "in play" on the trade market, though most of the interested teams would likely end up hurting his fantasy value.

Fantasy Spin:
Jackson's big contract ($10.6 million in 2014) is the problem for most of the teams. His best landing spot, other than staying with the Eagles would be New England. If he ends up in Oakland or with the Jets ... lookout below. He caught 82 balls for 1,332 yards and nine TDs in Chip Kelly's spread offense last season.

Falcons Sign Devin Hester
Atlanta has reached a three-year deal with return specialist Devin Hester. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN

Fantasy Spin:
The 31-year-old returned 52 kickoffs for an average of 27.6 yards in 2013. He also totaled 256 yards and one touchdown as a punt returner last season (18 attempts). A former receiver and defensive back, Hester was used exclusively on special teams last season.

J Cotchery (CAR)

Panthers Add Cotchery But Still Need More Receivers
Wideout Jerricho Cotchery has agreed to a two-year deal with Carolina. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com

Fantasy Spin:
Cotchery is the most talented receiver on the current Panthers roster, which definitely isn't saying much. He can be a solid No. 2 guy, but Cotchery's fantasy value will be limited in Carolina if he's covered by the opposition's best CB every week.

D Moore (OAK)

James Jones Instantly No. 1 WR With Raiders?
Former Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones has signed a three-year contract with the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Spin:
Jones led the NFL with 14 touchdown grabs in 2012 but dropped to three in 2013. He finished with a career-high 817 yards on 59 receptions in 14 games. He'll go from having one of the top QBs in the NFL to a team that currently has no starting quarterback, but he also will have far less competition for targets on the Raiders.

D Baldwin (SEA)

Doug Baldwin Dealing with Hip Injury
Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin is dealing with a hip injury which may limit his practice time, but won't keep him out of the big game, according to Seahawks reporter Curtis Crabtree.

Fantasy Spin:
The player called it a "bruise." Baldwin is a sure-handed receiver, though if Percy Harvin returns he becomes the third guy behind Harvin and Golden Tate.

N Bowman (SFO)

Navorro Bowman Suffers Serious Knee Injury
An MRI revealed that San Francisco linebacker Navorro Bowman suffered a torn left ACL and MCL during the NFC Championship Game Sunday. SOURCE: espn.com

Fantasy Spin:
Bowman will have surgery to repair the ACL, but the MCL is expected to heal on its own. A source told Adam Schefter that Bowman is expected to return for the start of the 2014 season, but that seems overly optimistic. One of the top linebackers in football, Bowman has recorded at least 140 tackles in three straight seasons and had five sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions and one touchdown in 2013 while making the NFL All-Pro first team.

C Bailey (FA)

Champ Bailey Shines in AFC Championship
Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) came up big just when the team needed him, playing almost every snap on defense.

Fantasy Spin:
Facing Tom Brady and without starter Chris Harris could have been a problem, but Bailey and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played well in holding the Pats passing game in check. Bailey appears to have come out of the game healthy and will have two weeks to rest up for his first Super Bowl.
09:26 AM
P Harvin (SEA)

Percy Harvin Should Be Ready For Super Bowl
Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, should be available in two weeks for the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Spin:
Harvin played just one game during the regular season due to hip surgery and suffered a concussion in his return to action in the divisional round against the Saints. He could be the "wild card" that helps the Seahawks' offense keep up with Peyton Manning and Company.

K Moreno (DEN)

Knowshon Moreno's X-Rays Negative
Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a rib injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's AFC Championship Game, but X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Spin:
Moreno will have two weeks to get healthy for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium and should be ready to go. If not, Montee Ball would carry most of the workload, but he's not the receiver Moreno is.

K Moreno (DEN)

Knowshon Moreno Suffers Chest Injury
Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno suffered a chest injury in the fourth quarter during Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Fantasy Spin:
Moreno has two weeks to get healthy for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. He had 14 carries for 59 yards and two catches for 22 yards Sunday against the Patriots, while Montee Ball had 56 total yards on 15 touches.

J McCown (TBB)

Josh McCown Not Considering Retirement
Soon-to-be free agent Josh McCown is not considering retirement. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN

Fantasy Spin:
Why would he? The 34-year-old McCown should be one of the most sought after quarterbacks on the open market this offseason. His 109.0 QB rating this past season for Chicago was a career-high.
03:59 PM
A Talib (DEN)

Aqib Talib Leaves Game
Patriots All-Pro cornerback Aqib Talib has gone to the locker room with what appears to be a rib injury.

Fantasy Spin:
Talib got tangled up with Broncos receiver Wes Welker and limped to the sidelines. Talib got injured in the AFC Championship game last year as well. Devin McCourty has come on to take his place with Duron Harmon filling in for McCourty at free safety.
02:00 PM
K Thompkins (NEP)

Kenbrell Thompkins is Inactive vs. Denver
Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins won't suit up Sunday against the Broncos. He's out with a concussion.

Fantasy Spin:
Thompkins suffered the injury last Saturday in a win over Indianapolis. Aaron Dobson is back after missing time with a foot injury so the Patriots are essentially swapping one rookie wideout for the other.
01:57 PM
A Dobson (NEP)

Aaron Dobson is Active For AFC Championship
Wide receiver Aaron Dobson is in for the Patriots. Sunday's game against Denver will be Dobson's first in three weeks.

Fantasy Spin:
Dobson sat out last week because of a foot injury. The rookie was held without a catch in New England's last meeting with Denver back in Week 12.
10:14 AM
A Peterson (MIN)

Adrian Peterson May Need Groin Surgery
Minnesota halfback Adrian Peterson may require groin surgery later this offseason. SOURCE: Tom Pelissero, USA Today

Fantasy Spin:
Peterson missed two of the team's last three games though neither absence was related to a groin injury. Even if Peterson does undergo surgery, he should be back in plenty of time for the start of the 2014 regular season.
