Danny Woodhead

Woodhead gets 2-year extension

The Chargers signed RB Danny Woodhead to a 2-year extension on Tuesday.  The new deal locks him in with San Diego through the 2016 season.  "Danny is an integral part of our offense," GM Tom Telesco said when announcing the new deal.  Woodhead likely received a slight raise here, but the move is a sign that he'll continue to play a key role as San Diego's passing-down back.  Woodhead is a long shot to match last year's 76-605-6, but he can still be an asset in PPR fantasy leagues.  He checks in at #33 in our PPR RB Rankings.

Ace Sanders

Sanders suspended 4 games

Jaguars WR Ace Sanders has been suspended 4 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.  He's allowed to practice in training camp and play in the preseason, but it's unclear if he'll do so.  Sanders revealed that he's taking a leave of absence to address his off-field issues.  It's unclear how long that will last.  “I've decided to go seek help and get that attention,” Sanders said. “I should be fine ... I think I'll come back and be ready to play."  Expected to be Jacksonville's #4 WR this season, Sanders was off the fantasy radar even before this suspension.

Jamaal Charles

Charles considering a holdout

Both NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and CBS Kansas City are reporting that Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is considering holding out of training camp.  He's signed for the next 2 seasons and is scheduled to make $3.65 million in 2013 and $5.75 million in 2014.  Still only 27, Charles certainly has a claim for more money after last year's 1,980-yard, 19-TD showing.  We'll see if he shows when Chiefs camp kicks off on Thursday.  For now, we're not altering Charles' 2014 projections.  But a lengthy holdout would knock him down our rankings.

Rashad Jennings

Giants to use committee backfield?

The talk around Giants camp all offseason has had RB Rashad Jennings serving as a 3-down back this year.  Then RB David Wilson received medical clearance.  Then Twitter was abuzz on Tuesday when word broke that RB Andre Williams was receiving goal-line work with the 1st-team offense.  Now insider Art Stapleton believes the Giants could deploy a "3-back rotation, especially to keep Jennings fresh."  Jennings, of course, has never served a full season as a lead back.  His career high in carries stands at 163.  Jennings remains the heavy favorite to lead the G-Men in carries and touches this year, but he might lose change-of-pace work to Wilson and goal-line work to Williams.  We just bumped Jennings down our RB Rankings a tad and will continue to monitor the situation.

Johnson to report to camp on time?

Texans insider Tania Ganguli reports that WR Andre Johnson was at the team's stadium on Monday.  Insider Jerome Solomon expects Johnson to report for the start of training camp later this week.  This has been the most likely scenario all along.  Johnson's age and contract make him nearly impossible to trade, and he was never going to sit out the season.  He's currently a nice value at his current 4th-round ADP.  We'll see how high that climbs when he reports to camp.

Stevie Johnson

Johnson needs to earn the #3 role

Insider Matt Maiocco believes WR Stevie Johnson must “clearly” win the 3rd WR role due to his $3.9 million salary.  That suggests the 28-year-old could be released if he plays poorly in training camp and preseason action.  Johnson’s currently the favorite for the #3 job, but he’ll be pushed by Bruce Ellington, Brandon Lloyd and Quinton Patton. Ellington and Patton are considered locks for the roster due to their age, upside and contract. We’ll avoid this group in fantasy drafts, though. The winner will sit no higher than 4th in the target pecking order, while San Francisco still projects as a run-heavy team.

Cam Newton

Newton not at 100% yet

Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) is "not yet" back to 100%, according to insider Joseph Person.  Newton is a little over 4 months removed from surgery.  He got on the field with some of his WRs last week but was "limited in his mobility."  We'll be keeping a close eye on Newton's progress over the next 6 weeks.  He needs to be at 100% by the time the season starts because he doesn't figure to post big passing numbers this year with Carolina's issues at WR and offensive line.

Eli Manning

Manning not yet comfortable in offense

Giants QB Eli Manning admits that he's not yet comfortable in OC Ben McAdoo's offense.  “Yeah, it is different. You come into the season a little nervous; you just don’t have [the same comfort]," Manning said. “You have a good feel for it, but not to where I want it to be. That’s with repetition and more plays. It’s a different feeling this time of year than in previous years. We’ve still got a lot of work to do and a lot to improve on to get comfortable, myself with my teammates and everything that goes on with being successful in an offense. I know we’ve got a lot of work to do."  Manning still has 6 weeks to settle into the system before the season opener.  But the new offense is just another reason to worry about his 2014 fantasy production, on top of his age (33), ugly 2013 campaign and offseason ankle surgery.  We're not interested in Manning as anything more than a low-end fantasy backup.

Jordan Cameron

Browns building passing game around Cameron

Browns HC Mike Pettine hinted that his Josh Gordon-less passing game will be built around TE Jordan Cameron.  "I think you also have to get creative in how you run your offense," Pettine said.  "Whether it’s an extra tight end -- that’s where adding Jim Dray and having a veteran like Gary Barnidge helps -- [allowing] you to maybe move Jordan [Cameron] around a little bit and play with groupings that maybe involve less wide receivers. You don’t become as wide receiver dependent."  Cleveland figures to trot out Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins and Nate Burleson as its top 3 WRs.  It's one of the weakest groups in the league.  Cameron is the team's best pass-catching weapon and a strong bet to lead the team in targets.  He sits a solid 4th in our TE Rankings.

Johnny Manziel

Browns will name starting QB before 3rd preseason game

Browns HC Mike Pettine is planning to name his starting QB before the team's 3rd preseason game on August 23.  Fantasy owners drafting any time after that will know whether or not QB Johnny Manziel and his intriguing fantasy upside will be under center for Week 1.  QB Brian Hoyer won't be a fantasy option even if he wins the starting job out of camp.
