DeMarco Murray Prefers Titans System

Tennessee Titans running back, DeMarco Murray, says he prefers the current system compared to what he played in last year in Philadelphia. Murray admitted the Titans run a more "down hill" type scheme which is what he's played in his whole professional career outside the one season with the Eagles. 



Fantasy Spin:

Murray has a chance to be a big bounce back candidate for 2016. Problem is, the Titans invested a 2nd round pick in talented rookie Derrick Henry who could steal carries from the former rushing leader.

LaFell Feeling Comfy With Andy Dalton

Bengals new wide receiver, Brandon LaFell, says he's getting comfortable with QB Andy Dalton. 



Fantasy Spin:

LaFell spent the last two seasons in a crowded receiver corps with the Patriots. In addition to not staying healthy, LaFell also dealt with a case of the "bad hands" during his tenure in New England. But he has a BIG opportunity with the Bengals considering Tyler Eifert is hurt and the team lost Mo Sanu and Marvin Jones in free agency. Rookie Tyler Boyd will compete with LaFell for the team's number 2 job.

Kenyan Drake Expected To Be Ready For Camp

Miami Dolphins rookie running back, Kenyan Drake, is expected to be ready for Training Camo despite a hamstring injry he suffered in mini-camp.



Fantasy Spin:

Drake of course is in line behind Jay Ajayi for carries in the Miami backfield. Ajayi while unproven is a bit more of a 1st and 2nd down runner whereas Drake is more of a pass catching back.

Lions Beat Writers Say Abdullah Will Be The Bell Cow

Beat writers from the Detroit Lions predict 2nd year back Ameer Abdullah will lead the team in carries and rushing in 2016. 



Fantasy Spin:

It's a bit of an odd prediction considering Abdullah has been out all off-season due to shoulder surgery he had in Janurary. So he's missed OTAs and Mini-Camp. He MAY be healthy for Training Camp at which point we'll decide if he's worthy of RB2 status.

Flacco Expects To Be Ready On Day 1 of Camp
Flacco didn't have any setbacks after knee surgery and should be ready to take snaps during the team's first full practice at the start of training camp on July 28. "I expect to be out there the first day," he said.

Fantasy Spin:
Flacco was lost for the season when he tore his ACL and MCL on Nov. 22 against the Rams. In 10 games, Flacco threw for 2,791 yards with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Carroll Says Rawls Will Be Ready For Week 1
The Seahawks expect Rawls to be ready for the start of the season, although he may not be able to go at the start of training camp in late July.

Fantasy Spin:
Rawls broke his ankle in December after rushing 147 times for 830 yards and four touchdowns while catching nine passes for 76 yards and a score in his rookie season.

Seahawks Believe Graham Will Be Ready By Week 1
The Seahawks expect Graham to be ready for the start of the season, although he may not be able to go at the start of training camp in late July.

Fantasy Spin:
Graham tore a patellar tendon last November after making 48 catches for 605 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games in his first season with Seattle. We aren't banking on Graham to return to his dominant form. Afterall, this type of injuries is one of the most devastating for a player's career.

Abdullah Out For Lions Mini-Camp With Shoulder Injury
For a Lions team that ranked 32nd in rushing last year, the hope is that Abdullah can make considerable improvement in 2016. He showed promise as a rookie, averaging 4.2 yards per carry, but five fumbles limited his touches and he is not practicing because of a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Spin:
The only information Abdullah provided about his shoulder injury this winter when surgery only became public knowledge a few weeks ago was that he suffered it "playing football." Abdullah has yet to practice this offseason, and coach Jim Caldwell wouldn't commit to him being more involved this season at this point.

Bills Upset With Williams For Being Out of Shape
Williams did not endear himself to coach Rex Ryan when he reported to the Bills' mandatory mini-camp clearly out of shape. He was held out of practice and was doing conditioning work on the side.

Fantasy Spin:
Last year, the fifth-round pick from Florida State rushed for 517 yards and scored seven touchdowns, and he tied an NFL rookie record by scoring in each of his first six games. However, he was hampered by injuries and missed five full games and parts of two others.

Fantasy Spin:
Allen was on his way to a stellar year last season, when he had 67 catches for 725 yards and four touchdowns before a season-ending injury in Week 8.

Jamaal Charles Taking Part In Chiefs' Mini-Camp
Charles was on the practice field Tuesday for the start of the Chiefs' three-day minicamp.

Cruz Taking Part In Individual Drills
Cruz surprised many by running routes and catching passes during individual drills at the opening day of the Giants' three-day minicamp Tuesday.

Fantasy Spin:
Cruz, who has played in only six games in the past two seasons because of knee and calf injuries, expects to be a full-go for training camp.

Darren McFadden Breaks Elbow Trying To Save iPhone

Dallas Cowboys running back, Darren McFadden, broke his elbow in perhaps the most "Darren McFadden" way possible...trying to catch his iPhone.



Fantasy Spin:

 

McFadden led the Cowboys in rushing in 2015 but will miss the next two months of Training Camp/Preseason due to the injury. McFadden's injury will likely result in rookie Ezekiel Elliott taking all 1st team reps in camp.

Perriman Doesn't Have Torn ACL Afterall

Last week, it was thought that Ravens wide receiver might have partially torn his ACL.
This week, it sounds like he did not tear his ACL and he could be ready for the season.  The latest report is that he received a stem-cell injection from Dr. James Andrews and that he should be fine.

 



Fantasy Spin:


If true, this is great news for the Ravens, who have been hit hard with injuries at the wide receiver position.
