Jordy Nelson Has Tendonitis In Other Knee

Green Bay Packers wide receiver, Jordy Nelson, is opening camp on the PUP List due to tendonitis in his knee. It is not the same knee Nelson tore last season, in fact the tendonitis likely occurred from Nelson favoring the knee while recovering from the torn ACL.



Fantasy Spin:

The Packers and Nelson are downplaying the injury and call it just a "hiccup" so we aren't very concerned right now but it is something to monitor throughout Training Camp and the Preseason.

Josh Gordon Dealing With Quad Injury

A day after the announcement of his reinstatement to the NFL, Josh Gordon gets some bad news as he will open camp on the active/Non-Football Injury list. Gordon is dealing with a quad injury that will keep him out of camp for a few weeks.



Fantasy Spin:

It's not a good way to start the Pre-Season considering he has played just five games in the last two years. Nonetheless, Gordon's quad injury should heal in time for Week 1.

Eifert Opens Camp On PUP List
Eifert will open Bengals' camp on the physically unable to perform list while recovering from offseason ankle surgery.

Fantasy Spin:
The move was expected, as Eifert will likely miss the entire preseason and may not be ready for Week 1. He's still worth a high choice in fantasy drafts after topping all tight ends with a career-high 13 touchdown catches in 2015.

Anquan Boldin Signs One Year Deal With Lions
Boldin will continue his long career by signing a one-year contract with the Lions.

Fantasy Spin:
The 35-year-old will be reunited with Lions coach Jim Caldwell, who served as offensive coordinator when Boldin was with Baltimore in 2012. The Lions were seeking additional veteran depth at wide receiver following Calvin Johnson's offseason retirement, and Boldin produced back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the 49ers in 2013 and '14 before finishing last season with 789 yards on 69 catches.

Jordy Nelson Will Start Camp On PUP List
Nelson begins training camp on the physically unable to perform list when workouts begin Tuesday in Green Bay.

Fantasy Spin:
Nelson, recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, missed the entire 2015 regular season and playoffs and said in June he will be 100 percent at the start of the 2016 regular season in September. We aren't concerned, more of a formality to get him to 100%.

Josh Gordon Reinstated By NFL, Suspended 1st Four Games

Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Josh Gordon, has been conditionally reinstated by the NFL and is suspended for the first four games of the season.



Fantasy Spin:

Despite a new coaching staff in Cleveland, Gordon should have no problem beating out the Browns wide receivers for the top spot, especially when you consider the majority are all rookies. Gordon didn't do much the last time we saw him on the field in 2014 but he only played in just five games. His now famous breakout season of 2013 in which he became the first wide receiver to post back to back 200 yard games, seems like a long time ago, but the talented yet troubled pass catcher is only 25 years old.

Redshirt Year Expected For Carson Wentz
Asked Monday as rookies reported with quarterbacks for the start of camp, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said a redshirt year awaits the No. 2 overall pick.

Fantasy Spin:
"We don't know it will be his entire rookie year; we can't speculate that far out," Pederson said. "But going into the season, there is a good chance it starts that way." Wentz allowed Monday that he understand there is "a process" for working his way onto the field. Sam Bradford enters camp as the No. 1 quarterback and Chase Daniel is second on the depth chart.

Ameer Abdullah Cleared For Training Camp

Detroit Lions second year running back, Ameer Abdullah, avoided the PUP List and has been medically cleared to start Trainin Camp. Abdullah missed all of the team's offseason workouts while receovering from shoulder surgery.



Fantasy Spin:

Abdullah will get the first crack to win the Lions starting job but keep in mind Theo Riddick is one of the best receiving backs in the league and Abdullah isn't a "big" back so goal-line carries and passing down situations could mean Abdullah comes off the field. He's a bit of a high risk high reward in the middle rounds.

Ezekiel Elliott Reported For Domestic Abuse
Elliott's former girlfriend has filed a police report in Columbus, Ohio accusing the rookie of physically assaulting her while sitting in the driver's seat of a parked car.

Fantasy Spin:
Elliott has publicly denied the allegations, as well as the accuser's claim that the couple lived together. Though he has not been arrested or charged, the former Ohio State star could potentially face discipline after the NFL investigates the incident.

Le'Veon Bell Will Start The Season Suspended...AGAIN
Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN reported that Bell's violation comes from a missed drug test and not a failed one. The 2014 All-Pro is expected to have his appeal heard before the start of the season and will miss the first four games if not overturned. Bell rushed for 1,361 yards and added 854 receiving yards during a breakthrough 2014 campaign but played in just six games last season. He was suspended the first two games and missed the final eight after injuring his knee in November.

Josh Gordon's Meeting With Roger Goodell Was Positive
Gordon, who is eligible to apply for reinstatement to the NFL on Aug. 1, met with Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday to discuss a potential return.

Fantasy Spin:
The NFL rejected Gordon's most recent plea for reinstatement in April after he failed a league-administered drug test. The oft-troubled wideout was suspended all of last season and 10 games in 2014 for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. Gordon led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards after playing in 14 games in 2013.

Sammy Watkins Foot Recovery Going Well

Buffalo Bills wide receiver, Sammy Watkins, says his rehab from foot surgery is going well.



Fantasy Spin:

Watkins doesn't know when he'll be back in action during Training Camp or Preseason but he admits his recovery is going in the right direction. It's a bit concerning that we don't know when he'll be fully healthy, but we still expect the Bills third year receiver to be in the lineup in Week 1.

Colts Want To Lighten Gore's Workload

According to ESPN Colts reporter, Mike Wells, the Colts want to lighten Frank Gore's workload in 2016. Gore finished with 260 carries in 2015, 5th most in the NFL.



Fantasy Spin:

Now 33 years old, Gore should no signs of slowing down despite a terrible offensive line and poor QB play in 2015. He'll enter the season as an every down back but the Colts may want to see what they have in undrafted free agent, Josh Ferguson, while giving Gore some rest.

Jets Haven't Spoke To Fitzpatrick In A Month

According to multiple reports, the New York Jets and Ryan Fitzpatrick have not spoken in over a month. Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall also admitted Fitzpatrick has not responded to his txt messages in a few weeks. 



Fantasy Spin:

Not sure where contract talks left off but there's about ten days before the start of Training Camp. If Fitz isn't back in a Jets uniform by then, it might be time to get worried. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker need Fitz back under center in order to replicate or improve on last year's stats.

Spencer Ware Chiefs Number 2 RB

According to ESPN's Chiefs reporter, Adam Teicher, Spencer Ware is expected to have more of a role while Jamaal Charles is healthy than Charcandrick West. 



Fantasy Spin:

Ware is a much different back than West so it makes sense for KC to use him in short yardage situations. Teicher admits that if Charles gets injured again, the Chiefs will use both West and Ware in a committee role like they did in 2015.
