  Steelers | Big role for Le'Veon Bell?    Tue Sep 2, 10:11 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not have his role reduced much this season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. When asked if he could see Bell getting 20 to 25 touches a game this season, Tomlin said, 'I think we drafted him with that in mind.'

  Broncos | Wes Welker suspended    Tue Sep 2, 06:55 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker has been suspended four games for amphetamine use, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Wow. Big news here. The Broncos are stacked at the wide receiver position, so this isn't something that will slow the offense down. We could see Emmanuel Sanders move inside to slot (he's going to next year anyway). Then it could be a combination of Andre "Bubba" Caldwell or Cody Latimer outside to start opposite Demaryius Thomas. Tight end Jacob Tamme can also play the slot if need be.

  Saints | Ryan Griffin waived    Tue Sep 2, 06:51 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Ryan W. Griffin was placed on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: We could see the Saints look to bring Griffin back to the practice squad. The second-year quarterback looked good in the preseason. As of right now, Luke McCown is the primary backup behind Drew Brees.


  Packers | Two do not practice    Tue Sep 2, 06:16 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Brandon Bostick (fibula) and CB Demetri Goodson (concussion) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 2. The team did not practice and the designations are simply estimations.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael misses practice    Tue Sep 2, 06:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Hamstring injuries can linger if not given enough time to heal. We'll see if Michael can heal up before the regular-season opener on Thursday night against the Packers. If he's out, then Robert Turbin will be the primary backup behind Marshawn Lynch.

  Bears | Santonio Holmes the third receiver    Tue Sep 2, 05:40 PM

Chicago Bears WR Santonio Holmes will enter the regular season as the team's No. 3 receiver after WR Marquess Wilson (clavicle) landed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The playbook will be narrowed down for Holmes to have a better chance to grasp the offense, starting in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: The Wilson injury caused the Bears to go to the street and sign Holmes. He's not quite the same player he used to be, but Holmes could work well as the third receiver behind Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith financials    Tue Sep 2, 05:16 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith's four-year deal includes an $18 million signing bonus, a $1 million salary for 2014, an $11.9 base salary for 2015, a $14.1 million base salary for 2016, a $10.2 million base salary for 2017 and a $14.5 million base salary for 2018.

  Panthers | Stephen Hill signed to practice squad    Tue Sep 2, 05:08 PM

The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent WR Stephen Hill (Jets) to their practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Hill just needed a fresh start after flaming out with the Jets. He has a fantastic size/speed combination, but injuries and bad hands have held him back as a pro. The Panthers are incredibly thin at the wide receiver position, so this signing is good for them too.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels injury update    Tue Sep 2, 03:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (hamstring) admitted that he was dealing with a hamstring issue during the last couple weeks of training camp.

Footballguys view: Daniels is not the same player he used to be even when healthy. We might see rookie Crockett Gillmore get a little more playing time than some people think in 2014. The Gary Kubiak offense is known for using plenty of two tight end sets.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plans to wear brace    Tue Sep 2, 01:33 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee), who said he fully expects to play in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins, said he will likely wear a brace over his surgically repaired knee, but he doesn't plan on changing the style in which he plays the game.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski is smart to wear the brace on his injured knee. It will give him better support when running and cutting. The brace could also help on big impacts because Gronk does not shy away from contact. If he plays, fantasy owners should be starting Gronk without question this week.

  Jets | Three not practicing    Tue Sep 2, 01:30 PM

New York Jets DE IK Enemkpali (foot), TE Jeff Cumberland (Achilles') and FS Josh Bush (quadriceps) all were in the trainers area during practice Tuesday, Sept. 2.

  Giants | Jerrel Jernigan in starting lineup    Tue Sep 2, 01:24 PM

New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan has been starting at wide receiver opposite WR Rueben Randle with WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) sidelined. WR Victor Cruz is working out of the slot in three-wide receiver formations. WRs Corey Washington and Preston Parker are the other receivers on the roster.

Footballguys view: Jernigan finished off last season with a bang. In the final two games of the regular season, Jernigan combined for 12 catches, 170 yards and two touchdowns. He should be on your waiver wire speed dial this season.

  Patriots | No decision on Rob Gronkowski    Tue Sep 2, 01:12 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (knee) status for Week 1 has not been determined, according to head coach Bill Belichick. 'I'm glad that Rob's optimistic about this situation,' Belichick said. 'We'll go through the week of practice and take a look at everything, everybody, and see where everybody's at and try to do what we feel like is best for the team. With all due respect to Rob -- I'm glad he feels the way he does -- but, in the end, we'll have to make the decision we feel like is best for the team and we'll do that as we go through the week.'

Footballguys view: Of course Belichick is going to be coy here. Many beat writers and insiders around the team are expecting Gronk to play in Week 1. That means he should be in the starting lineup for your fantasy team.

  Bills | Sign D.J. Tialavea     Tue Sep 2, 12:29 PM

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski to be on snap count    Tue Sep 2, 11:29 AM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will be on a snap count in Week 1.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are being coy about his availability for Week 1. Most people around the team expect him to play. If he is on a play count, then dial back your expectations just a bit....but Gronkowski should still be in your lineup.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims to short-term IR    Tue Sep 2, 11:26 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaners RB Charles Sims (ankle) is expected to be placed on the Active/Reserve/Injured list. The club liked what they saw in the offseason and believe he could be back in midseason.

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners here. Sims is a talented all-purpose back who could win the primary backup job behind Doug Martin when he returns.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick the starter    Tue Sep 2, 10:49 AM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is locked in as the team's starting quarterback. QB Ryan Mallett isn't expected to challenge for the starting spot any time soon, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith.

Footballguys view: Woo hoo! Err, what's the opposite of that? The Texans have a bad group of quarterbacks...arguably the worst in the league. Fitzpatrick is a seasoned veteran, but we're not excited about his fantasy upside whatsoever. With him under center, it will likely limit the fantasy value of guys like Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins too.

  Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead    Tue Sep 2, 10:24 AM

Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Miller is the starter and Moreno is the backup. It should stay that way unless Miller begins to struggle. We are interested in seeing how this entire offense looks under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.

  Dolphins | Lamar Miller needs consistency    Tue Sep 2, 09:23 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller totaled nearly 20 percent (140 yards) of his season yardage total (709 yards) on his longest four carries of the 2013 season. He had a 3.3 yards-per-carry average in the other 173 carries. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said the team is looking for him to be more productive and decisive. Miller has improved his pass blocking but needs to break more tackles and make would-be tacklers miss.

Footballguys view: Miller is playing a LeSean McCoy-like role in the Lazor offense. The new scheme is loosely based on what Chip Kelly has done with the Eagles. This makes Miller a high upside player if he can finally play up to his potential.

  Eagles | G.J. Kinne signed to practice squad    Tue Sep 2, 03:41 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles added QB G.J. Kinne to their practice squad on Monday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Kinne has the athleticism to run the Chip Kelly system. His pop-gun arm will limit the throws he can make in the NFL.

  Patriots | Seven to practice squad    Tue Sep 2, 03:01 AM

The New England Patriots signed LB Jake Bequette, DL Deontae Skinner, OL Chris Martin, S Kanorris Davis, LS Charley Hughlett, CB Daxton Swanson and WR Josh Boyce to the practice squad on Monday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Boyce failed to make the final roster, but the 2013 fourth-round pick could work his way back into the good graces of the coaching staff on the scout team.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins expects to play    Tue Sep 2, 12:51 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) said he felt fine after practice Monday, Sept. 1, and hopes to be on the field in Week 1.

Footballguys view: We're not shocked here. Watkins can wear a flak jacket and deal with the pain. Rib injuries are painful to deal with, but the rookie wide receiver should be healthy enough to play.

The Dallas Cowboys signed WR Tim Benford, DE Kenneth Boatright, C Ronald Patrick, CB Micah Pellerin, LB Keith Smith, LB William Smith and FB Nikita Whitlock to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Benford here in super deep dynasty leagues. He's quick and fast off the line of scrimmage. Benford also has some moves in the open field after the catch.
