Danny Woodhead - RB - San Diego Chargers Posted 7/22/14 7:02pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead has signed a two-year contract extension. Financial terms were undisclosed.
Huddle Up:  Take it as a definite sign Woodhead still figures heavily in the Bolts' RB plans after logging career highs in both rushes (106) and receptions (76) last season. And with the Chargers signing free agent Donald Brown to a 3-year, $10.5 million deal this offseason, you have to really wonder about the S.D. future of Ryan Mathews, whose 4-year contract is up after this season.

Bernard Pierce - RB - Baltimore Ravens Posted 7/22/14 6:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce said he has been fully cleared following his rotator-cuff surgery in the offseason. Pierce also said he is down to 223 pounds.
Huddle Up:  Good news for the Ravens as Pierce had best be ready with starter Ray Rice likely to start the season on suspension.

Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens Posted 7/22/14 6:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he's become more comfortable in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense.
Huddle Up:  Flacco hit career highs for passing attempts (614) and yards (3,912) last season but had the second-lowest single-season TD pass total (19) of his career while tossing a career-high 22 picks to finish as a low-end QB2. Flacco's numbers are bound to improve, but not enough to escape QB2 territory.

Joel Dreessen - TE - Denver Broncos Posted 7/22/14 6:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Denver Broncos released TE Joel Dreessen with a failed physical designation Tuesday, July 22.
Huddle Up:  No surprise here as the writing had been on the wall for the injury-hampered TE, leaving Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green behind stud starter Julius Thomas. Dreessen had a career year (41-356-5) two seasons ago in his Denver debut, but the emergence of Thomas and nagging knee issues limited him to a 7-47-1 2013 season.

Larry English - LB - San Diego Chargers Posted 7/22/14 6:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The San Diego Chargers released LB Larry English on Tuesday, July 22.
Huddle Up:  Maybe the only surprise here is that the 2009 first-round pick lasted this long, totaling only 11 sacks and 82 tackles in 5 seasons.

Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans Posted 7/22/14 6:56pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson visited the team facility Monday, July 21. Johnson has visited the facility a few times this offseason. According to a league source, it does not mean Johnson will report to camp on time.
Huddle Up:  Hey, it's better than not being seen or heard from at all, but the next key date is Friday when the Texans are scheduled to report to camp. The team's first workout is the following day.

Odell Beckham Jr. - WR - New York Giants Posted 7/22/14 1:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said he is only receiving preventative treatment on his hamstring at this point.
Huddle Up:  Getting in as many reps as possible with Eli Manning & Co. will be vital for the first-round pick, who is vying for starts/playing time with Rueben Randle.

Brian Hoyer - QB - Cleveland Browns Posted 7/22/14 1:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Cleveland Browns QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer will know who is starting before the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike Pettine, though it could happen sooner. Pettine has expressed hesitation to name Manziel the starter immediately and thinks Hoyer's chances are underrated.
Huddle Up:  The sooner the better for fantasy GMs, although many of whom are already banking on Manziel getting the bulk of the starts even if he doesn't win the job outright in the preseason.

Navorro Bowman - LB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 7/22/14 1:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) will likely return to action in Week 9 after the team's Week 8 bye, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
Huddle Up:  That's been the most realistic date all along even if it does wipe out half a season for his IDP league owners.

Marvin Jones - WR - Cincinnati Bengals Posted 7/22/14 1:12pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle), QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder) and CB Onterio McCalebb (knee) have been placed on the Non-Football Injury list.
Huddle Up:  According to reports, including one on Pro Football Talk, Jones' injury is a minor one sustained working out with Andy Dalton in a post-OTA passing camp. Jones is sure to elicit varied fantasy opinions this summer as he's coming off a 51-712-10 season but 14-207-6 came in just two games.

Roy Helu - RB - Washington Redskins Posted 7/21/14 11:11pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.
Huddle Up:  The battle isn't just for a roster spot, it's for a complementary role as the pass-catching back in Jay Gruden's offense. Alfred Morris hasn't demonstrated that skill set, so if Helu can secure third-down work he could wind up with enough touches to be a factor in larger PPR leagues.

Rashad Jennings - RB - New York Giants Posted 7/21/14 11:04pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still considered the lead running back, despite RB David Wilson's (neck) clearance for contact.
Huddle Up:  Jennings is more what Tom Coughlin is seeking in a feature back, as despite the Giants' new offense he'll still push them to run between the tackles. And, of course, Jennings hasn't been plagued with a raging case of fumblitis.

David Wilson - RB - New York Giants Posted 7/21/14 11:04pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) said that he has been cleared for everything.
Huddle Up:  Medical clearance is the first step for Wilson; now he has to prove to Tom Coughlin he won't drop the ball every time he's in the game in order to secure enough playing time to live up to the fantasy hype he garnered a couple years back.

LaMichael James - RB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 7/21/14 1:53am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James could have trouble making the roster this year, according to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson. Williamson believes RB Frank Gore, RB Carlos Hyde, RB Marcus Lattimore, RB Kendall Hunter and FB Bruce Miller will make the roster.
Huddle Up:  Two years ago at this time, the second-round pick was a hot fantasy commodity, but he's produced only 44 offensive touches -- and no TDs -- in 2 seasons, and the Niners have tried, unsuccessfully, to trade him this offseason.

Sammy Watkins - WR - Buffalo Bills Posted 7/21/14 1:53am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel went 4-for-4 on passes to WR Sammy Watkins during team drills Sunday, July 20.
Huddle Up:  There are high fantasy hopes that the fourth-overall pick will quickly get on the same page with the second-year QB and stay there as Watkins easily owns the highest current ADP of any rookie, going 56th overall on average, and 23rd among all wide receivers.

Marcell Dareus - DT - Buffalo Bills Posted 7/20/14 8:01pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus failed his conditioning test Sunday, July 20 at Bills training camp, which is why he was put on the inactive list.
Huddle Up:  The issues for fourth-year DT have mainly been of the off-field variety, but now with Dareus reporting to camp not ready to contribute, it's a two-pronged headache for the Bills, who already have had their share of bad news so far this offseason.

Toby Gerhart - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars Posted 7/20/14 8:01pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart will be the team's workhorse, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.
Huddle Up:  There's a bit of a conundrum when assessing Gerhart, who on the positive side only has accumulated 353 career touches in 4 pro seasons. Still, on the flip side, fantasy GMs are right to wonder if the RB will hold up shouldering the main load after never accumulating more than 109 rushes or 132 offensive touches in any one season so far.

Jordan Todman - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars Posted 7/20/14 8:01pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Jordan Todman is viewed as a change-of-pace back, along with RB Denard Robinson, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. 'Those two guys are truly change-of-pace backs,' Fisch said. 'Jordan really intrigues us with his burst, speed and acceleration.'
Huddle Up:  Todman garnered some fantasy notoriety last season with his out-of- nowhere, 153-yard total-yard outing during the fantasy playoffs. He figures to be the main backup to Toby Gerhart, who's heading into uncharted territory as a team's unquestioned No. 1 starter.

Luke Willson - TE - Seattle Seahawks Posted 7/20/14 8:01pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Seattle Seahawks TE Luke Willson will be TE Zach Miller's backup this season, but he's likely to see increased playing time.
Huddle Up:  Miller and Willson combined for only 53 catches last season, and there remain serious doubts the players' combined stats -- let alone individually -- would make for a fantasy-worthy TE considering the Seahawks' low-volume passing offense.

Aaron Murray - QB - Kansas City Chiefs Posted 7/20/14 7:39pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Kansas City Chiefs QB Aaron Murray (knee) will continue to wear a brace on his knee while taking snaps in practice.
Huddle Up:  No surprise here as the fifth-round pick was injured late in the 2013 college season. Meanwhile, that leaves Chase Daniel as a fairly clear-cut No. 2 behind starter Alex Smith.
