Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is almost completely recovered from his foot injury and sports-hernia surgery, according to coach Bruce Arians.

Impact
There has been much speculation about the Cardinals being interested in the Vikings' Adrian Peterson, but given his age and high salary it's more likely Arizona features a soon-to-be healthy Ellington with a talented rookie draft pick backing him up.

The NFL has suspended Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy 10 games for conduct detrimental to the NFL according to NFL.com.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The NFL clearly wants to send a message that domestic violence will not be tolerated and for good reason. The 10 game suspension is about as long of a suspension as one can get in the NFL without being out the full season.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco went on record saying "it's out plan and intent" to keep quarterback Philip Rivers "well into the future", yet failed to answer a follow-up question which was whether he had talked to Tennessee about a possible trade. | 04/22/2015 3:44 PM
News
Chargers GM Tom Telesco went on record saying "it's out plan and intent" to keep quarterback Philip Rivers "well into the future", yet failed to answer a follow-up question which was whether he had talked to Tennessee about a possible trade.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Meanwhile, Marcus Mariota worked out with the Chargers last week. Until Telesco outright answers all of the media's questions or Rivers signs a contract extension in San Diego, the trade rumors will continue to circle.

News
Georgia star running back, Todd Gurley, received a clean bill of health from the medical recheck at the Combine.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Gurley figures to be the first or second running back off the board and should be a viable fantasy option in his rookie year depending upon where he ends up. Gurley could go as high as No. 8 to Atlanta, but more likely ends up in Arizona, Baltimore or Dallas.

The signing of Tim Tebow is likely to send Eagles fourth-string quarterback, G.J. Kinne, to wide receiver/special teams.

While he might be a pretty athletic quarterback, he certainly isn't the answer to Philadelphia's wide receiver needs.
Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown is not reporting to offseason workouts, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. It's a first indication that Brown wants a new contract. | 04/20/2015 2:56 PM
News
Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown is not reporting to offseason workouts, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. It's a first indication that Brown wants a new contract.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The Steelers star led all receivers in the regular season with 129 receptions for 1,698 yards and scored 14 times and became a fantasy superstar so anything that could change that status isn't good. Hopefully the two sides can work it out and the receiver is excited to be in Pittsburgh on Opening Day 2015.

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was there for the first day of offseason conditioning, according to Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Whether Manziel can turn it around or even wether he'll be given a chance to turn it around is out of his hands, but at least it appears he's ready to buckle down and get to work. Reports of the Browns making an offer for Sam Bradford and looking at Marcus Mariota in the draft making Manziel's roster spot a question mark.

News
Quarterback Tim Tebow will apparently give it another try - with the Eagles.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
He's a long shot to make the final roster as he's a runner who tries to throw and Chip Kelly has always said he needs a quarterback who can run.

News
Former Vikings wideout Greg Jennings has made the tour of teams, but still has no contract offer in hand, that we know of.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Jennings led Minnesota with 742 receiving yards last season, but is a man without a team. Once a fantasy stud, he's likely a third receiver at best and will have limited fantasy value no matter where he goes. He has visited New Orleans, Baltimore, Carolina and Jacksonville.

News
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates wants to play fewer plays next season, according to Emily Kaplan of SI.com.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
That's not good news for fantasy owners. Gates finished last season with 69 catches, 821 yards and 12 touchdowns, his best season since 2010. I'm sure we will hear about LaDarius Green a lot more next season.

The mediocre tight end won't replace Julius Thomas, but he's a workman-like H-back that coach Gary Kubiak had on his roster in Houston.
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has received a three-game suspension for his DUI arrest in August 2014, according to Adam Schefter. | 04/09/2015 11:29 AM
News
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has received a three-game suspension for his DUI arrest in August 2014, according to Adam Schefter.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Bell rushed for 1,361 yards and caught 83 balls for another 854 yards last season making him one of the best players in all of fantasy, so missing a trio of games will hurt. DeAngelo Williams should start those three games.
Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount will be suspended one game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. | 04/07/2015 4:58 PM
News
Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount will be suspended one game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Blount and former teammate Le'Veon Bell were arrested for marijuana possession in November. Bell likely will see a slightly harsher punishment, as he was behind the wheel when the two were pulled over.

News
Bills wideout Sammy Watkins has minor offseason hip surgery, according to Josina Anderson.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Watkins might be slowed in OTAs, but should be ready to go when camp opens. He had a pretty good rookie season all things considered with 65 receptions for 982 yards and six scores. He'll have Matt Cassell throwing to him this season, but may have to share a few targets with newly-acquired Percy Harvin.

News
Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is expected to play fullback next season, according to Ian Rapoport.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Gerhart was supposed to carry the running game last season, but failed miserably. He rushed for 326 yards on 102 carries and lost the job to Denard Robinson. The Jags added Bernard Pierce and got rid of fullback Bradie Ewing leaving the team without a fullback on the current roster.

News
Broncos second-year receiver Cody Latimer could be in line for a big increase in production in 2015, according to a Denver Post report.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Denver has shown no desire to bring Wes Welker back and journeyman Andre Caldwell has limited upside, so Latimer could become Peyton Manning's No. 3 receiver.

News
Wide receiver Miles Austin just has to pass a physical before he'll be signed by the Eagles, according to Ian Rapoport.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Austin had a decent season before being injured with 47 receptions, 568 yards and two touchdowns, but he isn't the long-term answer to the Eagles need at wideout opposite Jordan Matthews.
Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin signed a one-year deal with Carolina. | 03/27/2015 3:45 PM
News
Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin signed a one-year deal with Carolina.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Boykin was beaten out by Davante Adams for the No. 3 receiver spot in Green Bay. He could win the job opposite Kevin Benjamin, currently owned by Jerricho Cotchery, but that still might not make him fantasy worthy.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be in an open competition with Jimmy Clausen, according to new head coach John Fox. | 03/27/2015 10:29 AM
News
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be in an open competition with Jimmy Clausen, according to new head coach John Fox.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Cutler should be able to beat out Clause for the starting role, but obviously there are no guarantees. Whoever wins the job, still has a few weapons at his disposal despite the loss of Brandon Marshall. Alshon Jeffery is a rising star, Marquess Wilson is talented and he can always throw the ball to Matt Forte, the best receiving back in football.
Steelers receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey re-signed with the team. | 03/27/2015 10:24 AM
News
Steelers receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey re-signed with the team.

Impact
Barring numerous injures at the position, DHB has no fantasy value. The seventh-overall pick of the 2009 draft (by Oakland) and never developed as hoped. Ignore him on draft day.

News
Cornerback Terence Newman has signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The Vikings gave up just 3,572 yards through the air last season which was seventh-best, but did yield 26 touchdown passes. New head coach Mike Zimmer knows Newman from his days in Cincinnati. He's not the player he once was, but he can still be effective.
Bears defensive end Jared Allen might have some trouble adapting to the Bears new 3-4 defense, according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times. | 03/27/2015 9:55 AM
News
Bears defensive end Jared Allen might have some trouble adapting to the Bears new 3-4 defense, according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Allen has always played in a 4-3 and isn't really big enough to play DE in a 3-4. He could end up being in for a passing down package instead of every down after he posted a career-worst 5.5 sacks last season.
New Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso (torn ACL) is expected to be ready for OTAs, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report. | 03/26/2015 10:07 AM
News
New Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso (torn ACL) is expected to be ready for OTAs, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The Eagles base defense wasn't very good last season, but their special teams made them a fantasy delight. A healthy Alonso alongside Mychal Kendricks will improve their defense, but that probably won't drastically change their fantasy value.

News
Coach Tom Coughlin suggested that wide receiver Victor Cruz could miss the beginning of the 2015 season according to the New York Post.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
It is the Giants goal to have him ready, but if he isn't, Odell Beckham proved he can be the team's No. 1 recever. Cruz is trying to return from a patellar tendon tear which is supposedly even tougher to come back from than ACL tears.
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson is recovering from offseason hip surgery according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. | 03/25/2015 3:18 PM
News
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson is recovering from offseason hip surgery according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Nelson should be fine in six-to-eight weeks as the operation was simply to "clean it up". Based on his numbers, it didn't appear Nelson needed to get his hip "cleaned up" as he set a team record with 1,519 receiving yards and made his first Pro Bowl. Nelson will be one of the first receivers taken this fall.
Head coach Chuck Pagano called running back Frank Gore his every-down back. | 03/24/2015 3:51 PM
News
Head coach Chuck Pagano called running back Frank Gore his every-down back.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
That's bad news for backups Dan Herron, Vick Ballard and Zurlon Tipton. The 2014 Colts backs had just nine rushing touchdowns and Gore could get that by himself next season. Though Gore may still be able to carry the load, remember the Colts offense is Andrew Luck centric.

That said, it doesn't matter how good a quarterback he is, if he can't stay on the field. The Eagles could be putting up smoke screens to cover their continued interest for Marcus Mariota.

News
Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce's head coach Andy Reid, expects "more and better" from his tight end in 2015, according to Will Brinson.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Kelce had 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014 and "more and better" would put him in elite TE status. having a better deep weapon in Jeremy Maclin could open the middle more, so we think its possible that he can build on last season.

News
LeSean McCoy new head coach, Rex Ryan said he's play in third downs along with Fred Jackson.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
That's good news for fantasy owners as McCoy lost some value last season to Darren Sproles. McCoy is a great screen pass receiver and the Bills should use him there as well as running the ball if they and fantasy owners are to get their money's worth.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, released by the Chiefs after they signed Jeremy Maclin, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, according to Ian Rapoport.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Bowe's fantasy value may just go from low to lower with this move. In Kansas City at least he had a solid, though unspectacular, quarterback in Alex Smith while he'll now be catching passes from either Josh McCown or Johnny Manziel. In either case it doesn't bode well for Bowe who caught zero touchdown passes last season.

News
Dolphins tight end Charles Clay signed a five-year $38 million offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills according to The Buffalo News.

Impact
The Dolphins applied the transition tag to Clay, which means they have the right to match any offer sheet Clay signs. Miami, however, likely didn't think Clay would get an offer this high. The deal includes $20 million guaranteed and $24.2 million over the first two years. Miami has five days to match the offer, and if they decide not to, the Dolphins will receive no compensation.

Wide receiver Cecil Shorts has agreed to a deal with Houston, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Shorts had a nice season back in 2012 (55-979-7), but his fantasy value has been slowed by poor quarterback play and injuries. He'll have similar quarterback issues in Houston. He'll also be a No. 2, at best, with DeAndre Hopkins seeing the most targets.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has signed a multiple-year extension to stay in Pittsburgh.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
His old deal was set to expire at the end of this season. Big Ben had a monster season, throwing for 4,952 yards and 32 touchdowns against just nine interceptions. He has a lot of talent around him including Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Le'Veon Bell, and should be a very good fantasy option again in 2015.

Saints receiver Kenny Stills has been traded to the Miami Dolphins, according to ProFootballTalk.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Stills was a solid option for Drew Brees with 63 catches for 931 yards and three scores despite being the No. 3 target behind Jimmy Graham and Brandin Cooks. He'll move up in the pecking order in Miami and could be the No. 1 option.

Titans place-kicker Ryan Succop has re-signed with Tennessee for three years.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Succop is a solid, though unspectacular, kicker. He did hit a career-high 86.4 percent of his tries in 2014 (19-of-22). It would help if the Titans offense would get a lot better.
Former Raiders running back Darren McFadden has agreed to a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. | 03/13/2015 10:51 AM
News
Former Raiders running back Darren McFadden has agreed to a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Fantasy owners certainly hope he's just a stop-gap measure until a "real" back can be brought into town. McFadden would certainly be better behind the Dallas offensive line than the weak Oakland line, but we assume there is a second move planned or a high draft choice to be used on a back like Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, released by the Chiefs after they signed Jeremy Maclin, is still searching for a landing spot.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Bowe could find one in Baltimore as a replacement for Torrey Smith, but that probably won't excite fantasy owners. Bowe was the top receiver in Kansas City but didn't score even once in 2014. The Ravens lost both Smith and tight end Owen Daniels so are in need of weapons for Joe Flacco. They can probably do better than Bowe.
