David Wilson Suffers Neck Injury At Practice
Giants running David Wilson (neck) left Tuesday's practice with a "neck burner," according to Paul Schwartz of the NY Post.

Fantasy Spin:
Anything that involves Wilson's neck area is of concern because of his past history so we await further word.

A Foster (HOU)

Foster Sidelined At Practice With Hamstring Injury
Texans running back Arian Foster has a hamstring injury, according to a Houston Chronicle report.

Fantasy Spin:
This doesn't appear to be a serious injury, but with Foster you always have to worry. He's got top-five ability, if healthy for a full season, but missed eight games last season and three in 2011.

M Sanu (CIN)

Sanu Used At WR, RB, and QB In Bengals Practice
Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu will likely play multi positions this season, according to a bengals.com report.

Fantasy Spin:
Sanu will mostly play at wide receiver, but will get some work out of the backfield and possible throw a pass or two this season. He's still not likely to be fantasy worthy.

C Ivory (NYJ)

Chris Ivory To Get Goal Line Work For Jets
Jets running back Chris Ivory was confirmed as the team's goal line back, according to RBs coach Anthony Lynn.

Fantasy Spin:
Chris Johnson is the No. 1, but this will hurt his fantasy value. Ivory is a clear No. 2 and goal line back ... when healthy. The Jets also have Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson in the backfield, but they don't figure to see much time, barring injury.

Giants' Beckham Not Off To A Good Start, Injures Hamstring
According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will miss at least another week due to his hamstring injury, though an MRI ruled out a tear.

Fantasy Spin:
Beckham is missing out on valuable practice time he could be using to get acclimated to QB Eli Manning and New York's offense. Jerrel Jernigan has been getting reps in his place in three-receiver sets.

K Rudolph (MIN)

Vikes Sign Kyle Rudolph To 5 Year Extension
The Vikings and Kyle Rudolph have agreed to a five-year contract extension, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.

Fantasy Spin:
Rudolph has breakout potential in Norv Turner's offense, which made stars out of Antonio Gates and Jordan Cameron. The 24-year-old has huge upside for his ninth-round ADP, which ranks 10th among tight ends.

Jeremy Hill Moves Above BJGE On Depth Chart
Rookie running back Jeremy Hill has been playing ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis in training camp, according to ESPN.com.

Fantasy Spin:
Green-Ellis seemingly is closer to losing his third-string job to Cedric Peerman or Rex Burkhead than he is to catching Hill. The Bengals drafted Hill (6-1, 238 lbs) out of LSU in the second round to serve as the team's between-the-tackles rusher. Green-Ellis carried the ball 220 times and scored seven touchdowns last season but ran for 3.4 yards per carry. Giovani Bernard is going to get more than 170 carries in 2014, but Cincinnati is also going to run the ball more often under new OC Hue Jackson so Hill could see 200 carries.

Cardinals Rookie Brown Getting High Praise
Third-round selection John Brown is getting rave reviews, according to beat reporter Josh Weinfuss.

Fantasy Spin:
He's a small, fast receiver that GM Steve Keim recently called "uncoverable." Barring an injury to Larry Fitzgerald or Michael Floyd we wouldn't expect any fantasy-worthy numbers from Brown in 2014, but he might be worth a play in dynasty leagues.
06:03 PM
A Peterson (MIN)

Don't Expect Much Preseason Action From Adrian Peterson
Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson isn't expected to see much action in the preseason, perhaps none at all, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Spin:
Peterson followed up his MVP 2012 campaign with a still respectable though not up to expectation 1,266 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013. He doesn't need much to be ready for the regular season and is still a top-five fantasy selection.
05:56 PM
G Bernard (CIN)

Bengals Will Feed Gio Bernard The Rock
Bengals RBs coach Kyle Caskey is thinking 260-300 touches for new starter RB Giovani Bernard in 2014.

Fantasy Spin:
Bernard had 695 rushing yards on 170 carries, 514 receiving yards on 56 catches and eight total touchdowns as a rookie while splitting time with BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Now a starter with a more run-heavy gameplan expected, it's certainly not unreasonable. In our projections we are expecting 264 touches, 1,437 total yards and 10 touchdowns.

L James (SFO)

LaMichael James Dislocates Elbow, Out For A Month
San Francisco RB/KR LaMichael James will miss at least a month with a dislocated left elbow, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Fantasy Spin:
Earlier this spring, it looked as if the 49ers would enter training camp with major depth at running back, but Kendall Hunter tore his ACL on Friday, Marcus Lattimore (knee, hamstring) still is unable to practice and James will miss the entire preseason. The team plans to reduce Frank Gore's workload and rookie Carlos Hyde is now in position to see most of the work as a backup.

Dolphins To Feature Lamar Miller More?
According to the Miami Herald, "there's a hope in Dolphins camp" that Lamar Miller can play the role of LeSean McCoy in new OC Bill Lazor's offense. Lazor spent last season as the Eagles' QB coach.

Fantasy Spin:
Miller has outplayed free agent acquisition Knowshon Moreno this offseason and is expected to be the unquestioned starter in Week 1. Moreno is still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Miller put on 6-8 pounds of muscle this offseason after ranking 24th among running backs in yards after contact last season, and coach Joe Philbin doesn't think Miller has sacrificed any speed in getting bigger. McCoy led the NFL with 366 touches last season so Miller could be ticketed for a huge workload if Lazor is serious about making him the McCoy of its offense. We should see his seventh-round ADP rise in the coming weeks.

A Rodgers (GBP)

Jordy Nelson Gets PAID By Packers
Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson signed a four-year contract extension that will pay him $39 million with $14.2M guaranteed.

Fantasy Spin:
Nelson set career highs with 85 catches and 1,314 yards and added eight touchdowns last season. With Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback, the 29-year-old is a low-end WR1.
05:18 PM
C Shorts (JAX)

Cecil Shorts Out For About A Month
Jacksonville receiver Cecil Shorts will miss several weeks with a strained hamstring, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.

Fantasy Spin:
Shorts has missed five games the past two seasons and played most of last year with a sports hernia that required surgery in the offseason. Still, with an ADP of 113.5 he's a good value pick because he should dominate targets for Jacksonville.

What Will Kendall Hunter's ACL Tear Do For Carlos Hyde's Fantasy Stock?
San Francisco running back Kendall Hunter is done for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Fantasy Spin:
The team is planning on reducing Frank Gore's carries this season and rookie Carlos Hyde stands to benefit the most from Hunter's injury.
