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.
02:04 AM
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.
01:59 AM
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.
06:54 PM

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.
06:48 PM
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.
06:26 PM

Jags Draft Receiver Rashad Greene In 5th Round
Add Florida State WR Rashad Greene to the Jaguars' receiver pool. They drafted him in the fifth round.

Fantasy Spin:
Greene joins Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee and possibly Justin Blackmon to the list. It's hard to figure out in May who will win the top spots and the most targets.
06:24 PM
B Sankey (TEN)

Titans Add Workhorse RB David Cobb In 5th Round
Obviously not completely happy with their running back situation, the Titans selected Davis Cobb in the fifth round.

Fantasy Spin:
Cobb was a workhorse back in 2014 for the Gophers, but is similar in style to Shonn Greene. Bishop Sankey owners can't be happy.
05:25 PM
C Hyde (SFO)
R Bush (SFO)
K Hunter (SFO)

49ers Add Mike Davis To Backfield
The 49ers selected Mike Davis of South Carolina with a fourth round pick.

Fantasy Spin:
Davis was a bit disappointing in 2014 after a solid 2013 season and a 4.61 40 time doesn't help his cause. He'll start pretty deep on the depth chart behind Carlos Hyde, Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter and probably won't help fantasy owners in his rookie season.
05:20 PM
J Forsett (BAL)

Ravens Draft RB Javorius Allen In 4th Round
The Ravens selected Javorius Allen of USC in the fourth round.

Fantasy Spin:
Allen isn't a workhorse back, but can make one cut and go, block and catch passes, so he could be a useful third-down back in the NFL. However, that's unlikely to make him a high value fantasy asset.
05:17 PM

Browns Finally Take A Receiver, Draft Vince Mayle In 4th Round
The Browns finally made a move to help their weak wide receiver corps, drafting Vince Mayle in the fourth round.

Fantasy Spin:
A big receiver who isn't fast (4.67 40), Mayle still amassed 148 catches for 2,022 yards at Washington State. He's more like a tight end than a wideout and his fantasy value doesn't figure to be very big.
