NFL Upholds Tom Brady's 4 Game Suspension

The NFL has ruled to uphold New England Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady's, four game suspension. Brady has said publicly he will sue the league if the suspension was not reduced.  Legal experts say he will "seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts." 



Fantasy Spin:

If Brady is granted the injunction, he may be under-center in Week 1 and have the federal courts make a ruling on the case at a later date. For now we are expecting to see Jimmy Garoppolo as the Patriots starting QB when New England opens up the season against the Steelers on September 10th.

Fantasy Football Players Celebrate: Bell's Suspension Reduced To Two Games

The NFL has reduced Pittsburgh Steelers running back, Le'Veon Bell's, suspension from three to two games.



Fantasy Spin:

Even when Bell was scheduled to serve a three game suspension, we still loved him as a Top 3 back. Now that it's been reduced to two games, we feel he deserves to be the Number 1 or Number 2 running back off the board.

Chris Johnson To Join Cowboys?

Representatives for free agent running back, Chris Johnson, have been in contact with the Dallas Cowboys. 



Fantasy Spin:

Johnson spent the 2014 season with the New York Jets but they didn't resign him this offseason. He was later involved in a shooting leaving him with a bullet wound. But Johnson has since recovered and could compete with Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden for carries if the Cowboys sign him.

Captain Obvious Statement Of The Season: Adrian Peterson Can Expect Heavy Workload

During the 1st week of Vikings Training Camp, Head Coach Mike Zimmer, told the media Adrian Peterson will get a heavy workload in 2015. Here's Zimmer's full statement: 

"As much as he can take, and as much as he can handle in all the things that we're doing. Obviously, we're going to have to spell him at times like you do a lot of guys. But we get down on the goal line, and we're probably not pulling him out, you know? He's our best player, and we're going to continue to use him."



Fantasy Spin:

This is a certified nomination for the most Captain Obvious Statement of the off-season. Of course Peterson is going to get a full workload.

Browns Coaches Won't Commit To McCown As Starter

The Cleveland Browns are expected to have a QB camp battle between Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel that may last all of Training Camp/Preseason. During the 1st few days of camp, the Browns coaching staff declined to guarantee  the veteran McCown will be the team's starter Week 1. 



Fantasy Spin:

It was an interesting statement made by Head Coach Mike Pettine considering he also said during that same press conference that Johnny Manziel is the "clear cut" Number 2 QB. If anything, the coaches comments are a perfect example of why the Browns Offense is a mess.

Steelers 2nd Year WR Bryant Beefs Up For 2015

Pittsburgh Steelers second year wide receiver, Martavis Bryant, has gained 14 pounds of muscle this offseason and is now weighing in at 225 pounds. 



Fantasy Spin:

Standing at 6 foot 4, the added muscle will help Bryant in the red-zone. He scored 8 TDs as a rookie despite playing less than 50% of the team's snaps. Bryant is one of our breakout candidates in 2015.

Cardinals Sign Jermaine Gresham

The Arizona Cardinals signed tight end, Jermaine Gresham, to a one year contract. Gresham spent his career with the Bengals and posted 460 yards and five TDs with Cincinatti in 2014.The Bears, Packers, and Saints also expressed interest in Gresham this offseason. 



Fantasy Spin:

Recovering from off-season back surgery, it's unclear if Gresham will be ready for the start of Training Camp. Once healthy he should compete with Troy Niklas and Darren Fells as the team's Number 1 TE.

No Appeal Hearing Set For Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers star running back, Le'Veon Bell, is scheduled to serve a three game suspension for his DUI and Marijuana charge last year. Bell is expected to appeal the punishment but the date has yet to be scheduled.



Fantasy Spin:

It's a bit surprising Bell and the NFLPA has yet to schedule an appeal hearing in hopes of reducing the suspension from three to two games. Despite the three game suspension, the Steelers RB is still getting drafted in the Top 5 of the 1st round. DeAngelo Williams will start for Pittsburgh while Bell is serving the suspension.

CJ Spiller A Lock For 60 Catches

New Orleans Saints Beat writers predict CJ Spiller is a lock for 60 or more catches in 2015. Spiller was signed this off-season to a four year deal and will rotate in the Saints backfield with Mark Ingram.



Fantasy Spin:

We've seen Spiller be an explosive back in the NFL but was misused by the Bills coaching staff the last few seasons. Now he gets Offensive minded Sean Payton calling the plays. We've seen Payton utilize Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles which resulted in PPR Gold during their time in New Orleans. We expect a similar role with Spiller. He's one of our top 20 RBs in PPR formats.

Duke Johnson Won't Beat Out Crowell At Start Of Season

Cleveland Browns beat writers suggest rookie running back, Duke Johnson, will not beat out 2nd year back Isaiah Crowell at the start of the season for the team's starting job.



Fantasy Spin:

It's important to keep in mind the Browns used both Crowell and Terrance West in a time share and never really "named" a starting back last year. We fully expect Johnson to be involved in the offense but mostly as a passing down back.

Adrian Peterson Gets New Three Year Contract

The Minnesota Vikings and Adrian Peterson have agreed on a new three-year $44.75 million contract. The deal gives Peterson a guaranteed base salary of $11 million for 2015. Despite being a three year deal it is structured in a way that opens the door for the Vikings to cut Peterson in 2016.



Fantasy Spin:

The news won't affect anything for 2015 other than him getting paid more. We'll see what happens to him and the Vikings in the off-season but for now he's in our Top 3 at the RB spot.

Texans Rookie Jaelen Strong Loses Serious Weight Before Camp

Back in May the Houston Texans coaching staff made it public knowledge they were unhappy with rookie wide receiver Jaelen Strong's weight. At the NFL combine he weighed 217 pounds but at OTAs/Mini-Camp he shot up to 231 pounds. But now it is being reported Strong lost about 20 pounds and dropped down to 211 pounds right before training camp.



Fantasy Spin:

It's never good when a rookie lands in the coach's doghouse even before Training Camp. Hopefully by losing the weight, Strong will emerge from it and compete to win the team's Number 3 receiver spot.

Justin Hunter Charged With Assault

Tennessee Titans wide receiver, Justin Hunter, turned himself in to Virginia Beach Police for an incident dating back to July 3rd. Hunter is being charged with felonious assault and is being held with no bond.



Fantasy Spin:

The third year wide receiver never quite caught on in 2014 despite showing brief signs of serious playmaking talent. Depending on the results of this charge and impeding trial, Hunter may be out of Training Camp or worse, cut by the Titans.

Broncos Sign Demaryius Thomas To Longterm Contract

The Denver Broncos and superstar wide receiver, Demaryius Thomas, have agreed to a five year contract worth $70 million. Thomas will receive $42.5 million guaranteed.



Fantasy Spin:

Thomas and Dez Bryant both received long term contracts shortly before the Franchise Tag Player deadline. Thomas has been tremendous the last two seasons with an average of 95 receptions, 1,500 yards and 13 TDs. There's been a lot of talk of Gary Kubiak and the Broncos running the ball more in 2015, but let's be honest, they still have Peyton Manning and Thomas is his Number 1 go to guy.

Dez Bryant Inks New 5 Year Deal

The Dallas Cowboys and superstar wide receiver, Dez Bryant, have agreed to a five year contract worth $70 million. Bryant will receive $45 million guaranteed.



Fantasy Spin:

After leading all WRs in TDs in 2014, Dez is poised for his 4th straight year of more than 1,200 yards and double digit TDs. He's simply a DOMINANT force on the Cowboys Offense and one of the most explosive wide receivers to draft in Fantasy Football.
