McCown NOT Manziel Getting Browns 1st Team Reps
Browns quarterback Josh McCown opened their OTA as the starting quarterback, notes beat reporter Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Spin:
As expected McCown is ahead of Johnny Manziel, but it's a long time from May until Opening Day in September.

Joseph Randle Getting All 1st Team Reps With Cowboys
Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is expected to be the starter come Week 1, according to a Dallas Morning News report.

Fantasy Spin:
That's assuming, of course, the Cowboys backfield choices are between Randle, Darren McFadden, Ryan Williams and Lance Dunbar.

James White To Replace Shane Vereen As Pats Passing Back
Patriots' second-year running back James White will be one of three guys seeking to take over the Shane Vereen role.

Fantasy Spin:
White will battle with Travaris Cadet and Dion Lewis for the Patriots' third-down role. Of course, starting any New England running back is always an "adventure." Watch this competition in preseason, but the likelihood is that only LeGarrette Blount will be fantasy worthy.

Marvin Jones Ready For Action After Injury Plagued 2014 Season
Bengals receiver Marvin Jones has been cleared for OTAs, according to a bengals.com report.

Fantasy Spin:
Jones caught 51 balls for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013 and made the Bengals passing game much more explosive with him playing opposition A.J. Green. If he's back and healthy, fantasy owners shouldn't forget how good he was two seasons ago.
02:14 PM
J Matthews (PHI)

Eagles Rookie Nelson Agholor Will Make Immediate Impact
Eagles rookie receiver Nelson Agholor figures to start from Week 1, according to reports.

Fantasy Spin:
Given the other options, this probably isn't shocking news. Last year's rookie, Jordan Matthews, and Agholor should carry the majority of the wide receiver workload with tight end Zach Ertz roaming in the middle. Don't expect much from Josh Huff, Riley Cooper or Miles Austin.

A Peterson (MIN)

Adrian Peterson Holding Out, Vikings Won't Trade Him
Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson is skipping OTAs and workouts and appears to still want to be traded, according to a Yahoo Sports report.

Fantasy Spin:
He's under contract and doesn't have much leverage in this battle of wills. Plus his monster contract ($12.75 million in 2015) would be hard for other teams (read Dallas) to absorb.

Gronk Most Certainly Still The Top TE Even With Brady Suspended
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been suspended four games for his role in DeflateGate.

Fantasy Spin:
New England has also lost their 2016 first-round pick and 2017 fourth-rounder, along with being handed a $1 million fine. Brady will likely appeal the suspension, which could potentially be reduced to two or three games. No matter what, Jimmy Garoppolo will likely start Week 1 against the Steelers.

C Anderson (DEN)

Broncos Former OC Rips CJ Anderson
Former Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said running back C.J. Anderson was not in great shape, struggling with his conditioning at times last season according to the Chicago Tribune.

Fantasy Spin:
That would make sense as Anderson seemed to tire over the season. He had just a 3.8 yard per carry average in December. Still, he averaged 4.7 yards per attempt over the whole season, rushing for 849 yards and scoring 10 total touchdowns. That wasn't bad for a waiver wire pickup midway through the season, but it will be intriguing where he lands on the Denver depth chart this year and consequently, where he falls in fantasy drafts. New coach Gary Kubiak has not assured Anderson a starting role in the backfield.

Suspension Looming For Tom Brady
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could face discipline for his invovlement in "Deflategate" according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Spin:
The Ted Wells report didn't have definitive evidence, but one can connect the dots and figure out that Brady instructed the Patriots equipment staff to decrease the air in the footballs. It is possible that Brady will be suspended the first game of the season, which would mean the NFL opener would be without Brady and Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell. As far as fantasy, if Brady misses just one game, it should effect his preseason value.

Blount To Be Patriots Workhorse RB?
Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount coukld be in for a huge season ... assuming he can stay out of trouble and Bill Belichick's doghouse.

Fantasy Spin:
The Pats lost Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley in the offseason, but didn't replace them at the draft. That should leave Blount as the workhorse.

C Palmer (ARI)

Carson Palmer Already Participating In Some Drills
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (torn left ACL) was participating in drills Monday, according to an azcardinals.com report.

Fantasy Spin:
At this point, we fell he should be ready for the opening week. Palmer was missed by both the Cardinals and fantasy owners and his return in time for training camp would greatly increase the value of Arizona receivers and the offense in general.

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.

D Martin (TBB)

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.

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.
