Sheldon Richardson, DL NYJ

0 seconds

Richardson suspended again

The NFL has suspended Jets DL Sheldon Richardson 1 game for violating the personal conduct policy. Richardson pleaded guilty in January to resisting arrest in a July 2015 incident where he allegedly led police on a high speed chase. Officers reported a strong odor of marijuana in the car when they stopped him, and he reportedly had a 12-year-old relative in the car with him. Richardson spent the 1st 4 games of last season suspended under the league's substance-abuse policy but returned to a full-time role right away. IDP owners shouldn't worry about him beyond the 1 missed week.

The Colts and QB Andrew Luck have agreed to a new 6-year, $140 million contract with $87 million guaranteed. Both the guaranteed cash and the $23.3 million annual salary are the highest in league history. That's what it takes nowadays to lock up a franchise signal-caller. The Colts clearly have no doubt that Luck is exactly that, despite last year's injuries. He turns just 27 in September and is now locked in with Indianapolis through his age-32 season. Luck sits #1 among QBs in our Dynasty Rankings.

The Seahawks and WR Doug Baldwin have agreed to a 4-year extension. According to insider Adam Caplan, the deal is worth $46 million total with about $24 million guaranteed. For comparison, Jaguars WR Allen Hurns recently inked a 4-year, $40 million extension with $20 million guaranteed. Baldwin is coming off a breakout season that saw him set career highs with 76 catches, 1,069 yards and 14 TDs. He's not a great bet to reach those marks again in 2016, especially the 14 scores. Baldwin feels a bit overpriced at his 4th-round ADP.

David Helman of DallasCowboys.com projects "roughly 280-300 carries" for RB Ezekiel Elliott this season. The lower end of that spectrum would have ranked 3rd league-wide last year; the higher end 2nd. Only 3 rookie RBs have topped 300 carries over the last 10 seasons, and only 5 have even reached 280. But this is a Cowboys team that fed DeMarco Murray 392 times just a couple of years ago. And they spent the 4th overall pick of this spring's draft to add Elliott. 280 carries is certainly feasible. We have Elliott projected for just a tad less than that.

Redskins insider Mike Jones left rookie RB Keith Marshall off his latest 53-man roster prediction. Marshall "must get healthy and stay on the field," Jones writes. After an injury-riddled career at Georgia, the 7th-rounder missed time this spring with a hamstring issue. A healthy Marshall is an intriguing prospect, but he's not worth rostering in redraft leagues right now. We'll see if he makes any noise this summer. RB Matt Jones remains the heavy favorite to lead Washington in touches this year.

WR Tyler Lockett is set to play a big role in the Seahawks' offense. "He’s a legit player for us, and he’s right in the middle of all our planning and all of our preparation," HC Pete Carroll said. "You have to deal with him in our offense. He’s going to be moved around to a lot. He'll be in a lot of different spots. He can do everything. We’re really pumped about him coming back." Lockett finished 43rd among WRs in PPR points last year, but he played just 61.5% of the offensive snaps and totaled 69 targets. Both marks figure to rise significantly in 2016. Lockett is a WR3 with upside.

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is "going very hard" in his rehab to overcome the "mental hurdles" associated with his knee injury, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Bell wants to be able to "cut and run freely" before he reports for the start of training camp. He's also hoping to get on the field for Pittsburgh's 3rd preseason game. Bell, of course, has experience returning from a knee injury. He suffered a hyperextension in the 2014 finale but bounced back to post top 5 fantasy numbers in 6 outings last year. His recovery this time around will be 1 of the biggest storylines of the summer. Bell is currently being drafted as a top-5 pick as the 1st RB off the board. He sits a tad lower in our RB rankings.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins didn't espouse quite so much confidence in his training-camp availability this weekend. He reiterated to ESPN that he feels good but conceded that he still needs to get back to team headquarters to rehab and train. Then coaches and trainers will also have much of the say in how soon he sees the field. "Hopefully I'll be back [for camp]," he said. "If I'm not, then cool. Get ready for the first game." If he's not, that would be less cool for fantasy football owners. We'll all be tracking this situation closely as camp gets rolling.

Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice says "there's a very good chance (QB Carson) Wentz won't even dress on game day" this fall. That looks like more of an opinion/projection from a writer than a report from any team source, but Kempski seems pretty plugged in and attentive to what goes on with the Eagles. Philly's QB situation will continue to develop through this summer, but the money spent on Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel in the offseason suggests the team would like to see them carry the position in 2016 and allow Wentz to come along relatively slowly.

Eagles insider Jimmy Kempski doesn't expect RB Wendall Smallwood to play much this season. The 5th-round rookie impressed with his pass-catching ability this spring but has a lot of work to do in pass protection. That's what usually keeps young RBs off the field. Smallwood is a fine dynasty stash but isn't worth a pick in most redraft leagues. RB Ryan Mathews is a strong favorite to lead Philly in touches this year and has value at his 6th-round price tag.
