Jets RB Chris Ivory Dealing With Hamstring Injury
Injury-prone Jets running back Chris Ivory is already sitting out drills with a hamstring problem.

Fantasy Spin:
Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury last season and despite his talent we want no part of him this season. Chris Johnson is the No. 1 and Ivory a clear No. 2, when healthy. The Jets also have Bilal Powell and Daryl Richardson in the backfield.

J Gordon (CLE)

Josh Gordon Will Appeal His Suspension In August
Browns receiver Josh Gordon is set to appeal his suspension at an Aug. 1 hearing in New York, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Spin:
We think there is little chance of his one-year suspension being reduced, but at least the final answer will come before most fantasy leagues hold their draft. Gordon was a fantasy stud last season catching 87 balls for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.

R White (ATL)

Roddy White Gets Contract Extension From Falcons
The Falcons have signed receiver Roddy White to a three-year extension, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Spin:
White came on strong in December after an injury-plagued first three months. The 32-year-old is eighth among active players in career receiving yards with 9,436 in nine seasons in the league. He and Julio Jones make up one of the league's top tandems.

J Blackmon (JAX)

Justin Blackmon Caught With Marijuana...AGAIN
Russell Hulstine of Newson6.com is reporting that suspended Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon was "arrested for the possession of marijuana following a traffic stop Wednesday night" in Edmond, Okla.

Fantasy Spin:
Blackmon was already on indefinite suspension and this won't help his chances of some day rerurning to the NFL.

T Romo (DAL)

Tony Romo Expected To Start Camp On Time
Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to be a full participant in training camp from the first day, according to a Dallas Morning News report by Jon Machota.

Fantasy Spin:
The Cowboys QB had December back surgery and is right on schedule with his rehab work. Romo threw for 3,828 yards and 31 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions, but missed the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.

B Pierce (BAL)

Bernard Pierce Will Start For Ravens in Week 1 and 2
Ravens backup running back Bernard Pierce (offseason surgery on his rotator cuff) should be the team's starter for the first two games of the season.

Fantasy Spin:
Assuming he can stay healthy, Pierce will get a chance to be the lead ballcarrier and prove he deserves a larger role even when Rice returns from his two-game suspension.
03:12 PM
R Rice (BAL)

NFL Suspended Ray Rice For The 1st Two Games of 2014
Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the season.

Fantasy Spin:
The suspension is actually a little shorter than expected. Still, it means backup Bernard Pierce will be fantasy worthy for the first two games of the season and if he plays well who knows what could happen down the road.

C Patterson (MIN)

C-Patt Will Return Kicks For Vikings
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said receiver Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to return kicks this season even though he's expected to have an expanded role on offense, according to the Star Tribune.

Fantasy Spin:
Patterson picked up 1,393 yards and two touchdowns on 43 kick returns last season in addition to putting up 627 yards and seven touchdowns from scrimmage. His ADP continues to rise and is up to 41.4, 15th among receivers, in fantasyfootballcalculator.com mock drafts, so he's turning into a high-risk, high-reward player.

C Johnson (NYJ)

CJ1K Cleared For Camp By Jets Doctors
Jets running back Chris Johnson (knee) has been medically cleared for training camp, according to ESPN.com.

Fantasy Spin:
Johnson sat out offseason activities after undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus, which he says he suffered in Week 3 last year. He rushed for a career-low 3.9 ypc in 2013 but was still a fantasy factor because he received 279 carries, caught 42 balls and scored 10 touchdowns (six rushing). He's going to split carries with Chris Ivory on early downs and Bilal Powell will handle third downs, so Johnson may not reach 250 touches this season.

B Tate (CLE)

Browns Rookie RB T. West Expected In Camp On Friday
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns rookie running back Terrance West is expected to practice Friday.

Fantasy Spin:
West was placed on the NFI (Non-Football Injury) List Wednesday, but he tweeted that he passed his conditioning test and is healthy. West is expected to push Ben Tate for the starting job this season and could remain heavily involved even as a backup, as the Browns plan to use a run-heavy offense.

G Tate (DET)

Golden Tate Surprisingly Lands On Active/PUP List
Lions receiver Golden Tate has been placed on the active/PUP list, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Fantasy Spin:
It's unclear what's ailing Tate, who signed a five-year, $31 million contract with the Lions this offseason. We project Tate to have 70 receptions, 977 yards and seven touchdowns this year as Detroit's No. 2 receiver.

S Rice (FA)
R Wilson (SEA)

Sidney Rice Retires From The NFL
Seattle receiver Sidney Rice has retired due to a history of concussions, according to ProFootballTalk.

Fantasy Spin:
The 27-year-old had one huge season -- 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns on 83 catches in 2009 with the Minnesota Vikings -- but hasn't been able to stay healthy. His other six seasons, he averaged 10.8 games, 26.67 catches, 380 yards and 3.67 touchdowns.

R Wayne (IND)
A Luck (IND)

Reggie Wayne Cleared In Time For Camp
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (knee) said he's been cleared for training camp, according to colts.com.

Fantasy Spin:
Wayne tore his ACL last October. The 35-year-old is a WR3 at best due to his age and lack of touchdowns the past three years (11 TDs in 39 games). He's being drafted in the eighth round.

Tavon Austin Admits To Not Knowing "What Was Going On" As A Rookie
Rams receiver Tavon Austin says he had trouble grasping the team's playbook last season, according to the Associated Press. "I didn't really know what was going on," Austin said. "Everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me."

Fantasy Spin:
Austin was drafted eighth overall but played limited snaps and had 40 catches for 418 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games. He also rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on nine carries and racked up 678 return yards (398 kick, 280 punt) on 51 attempts. He insists he knows the playbook now. "I understand the plays, the depth, the routes, the splits and everything," Austin said. "I just feel good that I can make some plays. Definitely, the game's slowed down for me." Austin has a lot of upside and carries a ninth-round ADP.

Gronk Avoids Preseason PUP List, Cleared For Camp
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) has been cleared for training camp and won't be placed on the active/PUP list.

Fantasy Spin:
Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14, but he's made an impressive recovery. Fantasy owners won't have to worry about him being placed on the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the regular season, because he's not eligible. Gronk has missed 14 games the past two seasons and his third-round ADP makes him a high-risk, high-reward option.
