Tim Tebow

UNS -QB

1 hour ago

Tebow headed to Philly

FOX's Jay Glazer reports that the Eagles will sign QB Tim Tebow on Monday. Philly worked the "QB" out on March 16 and were said to be trying to trade QB Matt Barkley. That has yet to happen. Perhaps Chip Kelly has some plan for how to use Tebow, because rostering him as a 3rd or 4th QB doesn't make a whole lot of sense. The former Bronco and Jet has proved that he's not very good at NFL quarterbacking. There's no fantasy intrigue to this move right now, but it'll be an interesting situation for the summer ... although not nearly as interesting as ESPN will treat it.

Denard Robinson

Robinson was cleared in February

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson received full medical clearance from last year's foot sprain in February.  The Week 14 injury ended his 2014 campaign but shouldn't be an issue this season.  Robinson flashed during a 4-game stretch from Weeks 7-10 last year, tallying 389 yards and 4 TDs on 72 carries (5.4 YPC).  He faded over the next 3 weeks, though, averaging just 2.8 yards per carry.  Jacksonville made a run at DeMarco Murray in free agency and will likely add a RB in the draft.  How early they do so will tell us how confident the Jags are in Robinson going forward.

Woodhead ready for offseason program

Chargers RB Danny Woodhead will be a full-go for the team's offseason program after breaking his leg last September.  “I feel really, really good,” he said. “I really do. As far as the injury goes, that is something I’m not even thinking about. I’m thinking about trying to get better."  Woodhead finished 12th among RBs in PPR points back in 2013 on the strength of a 76-605-6 receiving line.  He caught 5 balls in his 2 full games last season.  San Diego will likely add a RB in the draft, but Woodhead is a good bet to retain pass-catching duties in 2015.  He's a value pick at his current 15th-round ADP in MFL10 drafts.

Hyde trim and looking 'good'

49ers GM Trent Baalke said Friday that RB Carlos Hyde has cut his weight to the "mid-220s" and that Hyde looks "extremely good," according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. That signals some serious work this offseason for a back officially listed at 235. Mockdraftable.com lists Stevan Ridley and Eddie Lacy as Hyde's closest comps based on all of his measurements from the 2014 Combine. The young Niner is poised to take over the lead role after seeing very limited playing time behind Frank Gore as a rookie. With Reggie Bush the biggest current threat to his workload, we see huge upside for Hyde in 2015.

Roy Helu

Helu could play significant role for Raiders

ESPN's Matt Williamson expects RB Roy Helu to play a significant role for the Raiders this season.  “While he isn’t great in protection, I think he will be a very valuable piece and a quick safe option for Derek Carr in this up-tempo passing game and offense overall,” Williamson said. “Helu has been extremely productive on a per-snap basis.”  That he has.  Helu averaged an uber-impressive 5.4 yards per carry and 11.4 yards per catch last season.  He ranked 2nd in fantasy points per touch among the 82 RBs who recorded 50+ touches.  Williamson believes the Raiders could use Helu in a similar role as the Patriots used Shane Vereen, who totaled 148 touches last year.  That type of volume could easily land Helu among the top 30 RBs in PPR points.

Adrian Peterson

Peterson will be reinstated tomorrow

The NFL announced that Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will be reinstated from his indefinite suspension.  Peterson must continue his counseling and treatment, but no further punishment from the league is expected.  With that out of the way, we can now start to work toward a resolution between Peterson and the Vikings.  Neither side has flinched so far.  If Minnesota is going to make a move, it could happen during the NFL Draft later this month.

Gates wants to play LESS in 2015

When guys talk playing time, they're usually wanting more of it.  Not so for Chargers TE Antonio Gates.  He wants to see the field less in 2015.  "With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season,” Gates said. “I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I’d like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That’s what my contribution is at anyway.”  Gates actually played 72% of San Diego's offensive snaps last year.  His total of 787 ranked just 17th among TEs.  Gates turns 35 in June but has remained plenty effective.  He posted a 69-821-12 line last year, hauling in 70% of his targets and averaging 11.9 yards per catch.  We doubt the Chargers significantly scale back his playing time in 2015.

Emmanuel Sanders

Sanders to play more slot in 2015

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has been told that he'll play more in the slot this season.  This has been our expectation since Denver drafted the 6'2, 215-pound Cody Latimer in the 2nd round of last year's draft.  When the Broncos go to 3-WR sets this season, Latimer will join Demaryius Thomas on the outside, while Sanders kicks into the slot.  The problem for Latimer's 2015 production is that new HC Gary Kubiak doesn't typically run a whole lot of 3-WR sets.  Of course, that doesn't mean he won't run more this season.  As for Sanders, he was extremely efficient in the slot last year, posting an 85.7% catch rate and 13.5 yards per catch.  More time in the slot doesn't hurt his fantasy outlook.

Michael Crabtree

OAK -WR

Crabtee signing with Raiders

WR Michael Crabtree is set to sign with the Raiders, according to insiders Bill Williamson and Adam Caplan.  Crabtree was met with an extremely soft market, drawing no known interest until over a week into free agency.  It's a sign that the league as a whole is down on him.  Crabtree is still only 27, but there have been whispers that his lower-leg injuries have sapped his explosion.  He averaged an ugly 10.3 yards per catch last year. Crabtree also dropped 12.8% of his targets, per Pro Football Focus, which was 4th worst among 50 qualifying WRs.  As Oakland's depth chart currently stands, Crabtree will join James Jones in the starting lineup.  But the Raiders should still be looking to add talent to the position, potentially with the 4th overall pick of this month's draft.

Stevan Ridley

Ridley expected to be ready for training camp

ESPN's Rich Cimini hears that new Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.  Ridley tore his ACL and MCL last October and had to wait until November to have surgery.  He'll be about 8 months removed from surgery when camp opens in late July.  Ridley will need to be at full strength if he wants to beat out Chris Ivory for the lead-back job in New York.
