  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch receives huge offer    Sun Feb 1, 09:37 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has received a contract extension offer from the team that would keep him with the team for years to come, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Some thought the Seahawks would let Lynch go after 2014, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Dynasty owners of Robert Turbin and Christine Michael don't want to hear this, but Lynch is simply the better option. Lynch has been spectacular since coming over to Seattle in a trade with the Bills in 2010. It is believed Lynch would make more than $10 million in 2015 if he agrees to the extension.

  Cowboys | Cowboys believe in Joseph Randle?    Sat Jan 31, 12:26 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was the team's primary backup this year, and there are people within the organization that believe he can be a 1,400-yard rusher as a lead back.

Footballguys view: No offense to Randle--but he's no DeMarco Murray. He's arguable faster than Murray, but he's not as powerful or instinctive as a runner. Now, behind that monster O-Line, Randle could be a 1,000-yard rusher...but would he be as dangerous as Murray on a game-to-game basis? This is a huge question mark for the Cowboys as they are facing the decision of whether or not to re-sign Murray in free agency this offseason.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch probable     Fri Jan 30, 06:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully practiced Friday, Jan. 30, and is probable for the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: Lynch is going to be the centerpiece of the Seahawks offense like he always is. The last time these two teams faced (2012), Lynch only had 15 carries for 41 yards. We're expecting a greater total on Sunday.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has charges withdrawn    Fri Jan 30, 10:41 AM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount completed his 50 hours of community service, and his drug charge from earlier this season has been withdrawn, according to his attorney.

Footballguys view: Blount was charged with marijuana possession in August with Le'Veon Bell. Now that he's been through the legal process, the NFL could step in with a fine or suspension. If suspended for 2015, we can't see it being more than maybe a game or two. The NFL might decide just to fine Blount instead.

  Eagles | LeSean McCoy open to restructure    Fri Jan 30, 02:22 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy has said he would restructure his contract to lower the $11.95 million cap hit for 2015, but he will not take a pay cut.

Footballguys view: McCoy still has $4.4 million in dead money left on his deal. While he says he won't take a pay cut, we're not so sure. The Eagles could move some of the money around to give themselves more room underneath the salary cap this year. Stay tuned.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch practices in full    Thu Jan 29, 09:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) went through a full practice session Thursday, Jan. 29.

Footballguys view: Lynch will be fine and likely and integral part of any offensive plan for Seattle on Sunday. Ultimately, the real interesting question revolves around what the Seahawks do with him with the end of his contract looming. Can they keep both he and Russell Wilson? And will Wilson be as effective without Lynch? Important questions, but they'll keep until after Sunday.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell able to work out    Thu Jan 29, 12:56 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has been able to work out despite ending the season with an injured knee. 'The knee is close to 100%,' Bell said. 'I'm probably about 85-90%, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little.'

Footballguys view: Bell had been one of the best running back in the NFL before is entering. You should be a round draft pick in fantasy draft next year if he stays on pace with his rehab.

  Bills | Anthony Dixon has knee surgery    Wed Jan 28, 02:18 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon (knee) underwent surgery for a partially torn meniscus in his knee Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: This is just a minor procedure which should not keep Dixon from participating once training camp rolls around. We're sure the Bills will ease him back in at that time. Our very own Dr. Jene Bramel says this, "Since he played through injury and has reportedly already started rehab, it's probably relatively minor and they chose the procedure with the shorter of the two recovery periods."

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch could be fined    Wed Jan 28, 11:45 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could face a significant fine for wearing an unauthorized "beast mode" hat to media day.

Footballguys view: He's going to get fined, and he just doesn't care. Lynch doesn't want to talk to the media, and he wants to wear what he likes. The fines go to charity, and Lynch has no problem paying.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount to have big role?    Tue Jan 27, 08:00 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount should be a factor in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Feb. 1, in the opinion of Boston Herald writer Karen Guregian. Despite Seattle's highly ranked run defense, they lost games earlier this season to both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys, who used run-heavy game plans. The Green Bay Packers also had early success on the ground against the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game. The Packers opened up holes by overloading lanes with pulling linemen, which is something the Patriots like to do with their guards and tackles. If the Patriots stay away from the run, Seattle's linebackers will drop back in zone coverage, making it tougher on the Patriots' passing game.

Footballguys view: Blount is a key player for the Patriots on Sunday. By running the ball effectively, the Patriots will be able to keep the Seattle defense honest. They can then strike through the air with play-action passing.

  Vikings | NFLPA against Adrian Peterson counseling    Tue Jan 27, 07:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was directed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to meet with a league-assigned psychiatrist following Peterson's suspension. The National Football League Players Association is now crying foul on the commissioner's mandated counseling, arguing that Goodell did not have the power to enforce such a stipulation. The NFLPA said the terms of Peterson's suspension violate the limits of Goodell's power under the collective bargaining agreement.

Footballguys view: The NFLPA is standing up for their player here as Commissioner Goodell may have overstepped his bounds. Counseling could certainly help Peterson from a PR standpoint as his image was damaged in 2014. It could also help him just be a better person. Counseling could be court-ordered, but Goodell is not judge and jury here.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch runs better in postseason    Tue Jan 27, 04:12 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch averages more yards per carry and yards after contact (5.00, 2.67) during the postseason than during the regular season (4.41, 2.01).

Footballguys view: Lynch is a powerful runner who gets stronger as the game--and the season--goes on. It's not surprising to see his postseason performances given how tough he is to contend with during the regular season.

  Colts | Trent Richardson's guarantee voided    Tue Jan 27, 10:40 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team voided the guarantee of a $3,184,062 salary in 2015.

Footballguys view: We'll see Richardson appeal this with the NFLPA. If the Colts win, it means they'll be able to release Richardson without paying him the final year of his rookie contract. Richardson was the third-overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, but his career has been in a tailspin since the Colts gave up a first-round pick for him in 2013. The Colts should be in the market for a running back this offseason either through the draft or free agency.

  Packers | John Kuhn to test market    Sat Jan 24, 12:34 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent FB John Kuhn said he would be open to re-signing with the Packers but wants to test the free-agent market before signing with a team.

Footballguys view: There's just not much of a market for fullbacks. We have a feeling Packers fans will still be hollering "Kuhn!" in 2015.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray getting support from QB    Fri Jan 23, 06:29 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is getting support from QB Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have to bring Murray back, right? We can't imagine him signing with another team after the season he had with Dallas in 2014. He's the engine to the offense, and it would be incredibly difficult to replace him. Murray is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but we feel the Cowboys will find a way to bring him back.

  Cowboys | DeMarco Murray more than a rusher    Thu Jan 22, 09:22 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray was in pass protection on 52 more plays than any other running back on the roster in 2014.

Footballguys view: Murray is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2015. He's a do-everything back who can dominate on Sundays. We'll see if the Cowboys can secure him with a new long-term contract in 2015.

  Saints | Mark Ingram wants to return to Saints    Thu Jan 22, 06:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason, wants to return to the team next year, and he thinks the interest is mutual.

Footballguys view: After years of struggling to produce and struggling to stay healthy, Ingram finally put it together with the Saints. Ingram ran for 964 yards on 226 attempts and nine touchdowns last year, which were all career highs. His 74.2 yards per game ranked him eighth in the league.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch levied multiple fines    Thu Jan 22, 09:48 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $20,000 Thursday, Jan. 22, for an obscene gesture he made after scoring a touchdown in the NFC Championship game, according to an NFL official. He's also subject to a fine for not speaking to the media after the game, and the league is considering fining him significantly more than the $50,000 he has been previously fined for not speaking to reporters. An NFL official said there would be increasing fines if Lynch misses sessions during Super Bowl week, with each fine being more than the two $50,000 fines already imposed and the upcoming penalty.

Footballguys view: Of course he was. He should send a cake to the Patriots because this would be a bigger story this week and the next if it wasn't for a bunch of balls being under-inflated. It's long been thought Lynch might have some sort of anxiety issue and he might need more help from the NFL and his team. The guy is clearly uncomfortable in front of the press and yet he gets tossed out there with little support from either entity. Expect more of the same next week.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch in rarified playoff air    Wed Jan 21, 07:40 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is one of just seven NFL players in history that have rushed for more than 100 yards in five or more playoff games, joining Terrell Davis, Emmitt Smith, John Riggins, Thurman Thomas, Marcus Allen and Franco Harris. Lynch is averaging 94.3 yards in his last seven playoff games. He also leads the league in 100-yard games over the last four years with 24, one more than Houston Texans RB Arian Foster.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray to be featured in offense    Wed Jan 21, 12:40 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is likely to be the team's lead back in 2015, and new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave plans tailor his system to Murray's talents. Musgrave has guided a top-10 rushing attack in four of his six seasons as an offensive coordinator. Murray had just 82 carries last year and also added 17 catches and 567 total yards of offense.

Footballguys view: We're excited about Murray's upside, provided he can stay healthy. He has a great size/speed combination and looks swift to and through the hole as a runner. Murray can be a featured back for the Raiders, and it wouldn't surprise us to see him put up strong RB2 numbers in 2015.

  Giants | Could Add RB Depth     Wed Jan 21, 10:16 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could have a veteran running back to complement or compete with him next season. The team could possibly add a change-of-pace back and a run-blocking offensive lineman in the offseason.

Footballguys view: This move wouldn't surprise us. Behind Jennings, the Giants will have second-year pro Andre Williams. He's your classic banger between the tackles, but he's not a receiving threat. This is a good RB class in the draft, and the Giants could look for some help there.

  Colts | Trent Richardson was suspended    Wed Jan 21, 09:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was suspended and deactivated for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Richardson told the team he was dealing with a serious family problem. We're doubtful the team would suspend him if that was the case. He has a $3.1 million cap number next year-all guaranteed-but we think the Colts could cut him loose later this offseason.

  Lions | Joique Bell undergoes surgery    Tue Jan 20, 11:14 PM

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell had minor surgery last week to clean up his knee and Achilles' tendon.

Footballguys view: In super super deep dynasty leagues we're still holding out hope for Da'Rick Rogers. He's an incredible talent with a fantastic size/speed combination. Keep monitoring him on a WR-starved team like the Chiefs.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson happy about new offense    Tue Jan 20, 01:21 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson, who finished the year with 849 rushing yards, 324 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, is looking forward to his role in new head coach Gary Kubiak's offense in 2015. Kubiak typically runs a zone-blocking offense that is friendly to running backs. 'I have known about his system for a while, and what he accomplished,' Anderson said of Kubiak. 'One cut downhill and go get it. It fits me and the offense well. It's always been successful. He knows the team we have and what we can do. I can't wait to get started working with him.'

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners here. Anderson could put up monster numbers in the Kubiak system. He led the NFL in rushing (and rushing touchdowns) over the final six weeks of the regular season. His potential production makes Anderson a consideration as a late first- or early second-round pick in your fantasy leagues.

  Colts | Dan Herron may not be starter    Tue Jan 20, 10:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is more of a backup than a starter, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Wells is right. Herron drops too many passes to be counted on as anything more than a part-time player. We'll likely see the Colts make a move for a free agent running back or select on in the draft.

  Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw update    Tue Jan 20, 10:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) has shed the cast on his leg and is in walking boot Tuesday, Jan. 20.

  Raiders | New OC good for Latavius Murray?    Mon Jan 19, 09:40 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray could benefit from offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, who has used a run-heavy style in the past.

Footballguys view: Murray is a ascending talent with star potential. His size/speed combination makes him a dangerous weapon as a runner between the tackles. Murray is a decent receiver out of the backfield, and he can break off long runs if he gets daylight.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson added to Pro Bowl    Mon Jan 19, 06:15 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has been named to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a replacement for Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee).

Footballguys view: Anderson worked hard once he got his opportunity as the starter for the Broncos. He led the NFL in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns over the final six weeks of the regular season. With Gary Kubiak hired as the new head coach in Denver, we could see Anderson have an outstanding year in 2015.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch mulling retirement?    Mon Jan 19, 01:59 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch may consider retirement if the Seahawks win the Super Bowl, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lynch has reportedly told people in private that he may simply just walk away from the game.

Footballguys view: Lynch marches to the beat of his own drum. It wouldn't shock us if he rushes for over 1,000 yards again in 2015 or retires and never plays football again. Dynasty owners should have already been prepared for both scenarios.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has outstanding performance    Mon Jan 19, 12:37 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran for 148 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries in the team's win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 18. 'He makes contact on every play and seems to enjoy it. He's like a boxer throwing body punches. Eventually, he wears guys down and starts breaking those big runs,' OG Ryan Wendell said. Blount played 42 offensive snaps in the game, passing his previous season high of 30. He also ran for 69 yards after contact against the Colts, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Footballguys view: Blount was an absolute battering ram against the Colts. His hard-charging style will come in handy when the Patriots try to soften up the Seahawks defense in the Super Bowl.

  Seahawks | Seattle open to Marshawn Lynch returning    Mon Jan 19, 10:16 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to return in 2015 with the team more than open to bringing him back at a $5 million salary. 'Mainly because he actually has outperformed his contract and clearly established himself as the identity of this team,' NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on NFL Gameday Morning. 'Basically, they don't have a choice based on the way he plays to bring him back.'

Footballguys view: Lynch is the centerpiece of the Seattle offense. They do have a couple of interesting young backs (Robert Turbin, Christine Michael) behind him, but we can't imagine Lynch getting dumped for salary reasons.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (personal) did not make the trip to New England for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Richardson was a healthy scratch last week against the Broncos, and now he'll miss the AFC Championship. Behind Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton on the depth chart, Richardson's game has fallen off more than ever this year. He's due to make $3.2 million (fully guaranteed), but we still think the Colts will consider releasing him.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) said that his left knee was sore but fine Friday, Jan. 16. 'I'm not concerned,' Lacy said. 'I'm chillin'.'

Footballguys view: We feel Lacy is the key to victory for the Packers. If he can soften up the Seahawks defense, it will make things easier for Aaron Rodgers and the passing game. Teams who win in Seattle much get a good day from their rushing attack.

  Colts | Dan Herron the key to victory?    Fri Jan 16, 08:14 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has had at least eight carries in a game eight times this year, and the Colts are 8-0 in those games.

Footballguys view: This is a super simplified way of looking at the matchup against the Patriots. They could give Herron 20 carries, and it doesn't put an automatic "W" on the board. The Patriots are a tough matchup, and we think Herron is best suited getting a lot of receptions out of the backfield. We're not predicting a ton of success on the ground for the Colts. This game will come down to Andrew Luck and his ability to lift this team.

  Jets | Chris Johnson expected to be released    Fri Jan 16, 07:11 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who had just 663 rushing yards this year, is expected to be released this offseason. Johnson is due to make $4 million in 2015.

Footballguys view: Johnson has a base salary of $3.5 million, a bonus of $1.5 million and an option bonus of $250,000 due in 2015. At this point in his career, the Jets are unlikely to pay that kind of money for his services.

  Jets | C.J. Spiller an option for Jets?    Fri Jan 16, 07:08 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller, who will be a free agent this offseason, could be eyeing a move to the New York Jets, where he could be reunited with his former offensive coordinator in Chan Gailey. "There is that familiarity between me and him in that offense," Spiller said. "So that would be a perfect match. Who knows what can happen, but I'd be foolish not to have those guys on my list. I had my best years in the league with Chan. So it'd be dumb not to give it serious thought."

Footballguys view: Spiller had 1,703 total yards, eight touchdowns and 43 catches in 2012 with Gailey. The Jets have Bilal Powell as an undrafted free agent in 2015, but Chris Johnson is no lock to make it through cuts. His salary cap hit is $5.2 million this year with around $1.7 million in dead money. Spiller could be had for a decent price on the open market this offseason.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) is listed as probable for the NFC Championship game. Lacy looks good, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: Lacy is the key player for the Packers this Sunday. If the Packers can smash box against the Seahawks, it will protect Aaron Rodgers as he deals with a calf injury. Lacy can wear down an opponent as the game goes on, and Seattle's defense can be run on if a team is willing.

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent FB Greg Jones Thursday, Jan. 15. It was a one-day contract so Jones could officially retire as a Jaguar.
