  NFL | Dalvin Cook, Kareem Hunt living off big plays    Tue Sep 19, 08:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt lead the NFL with six big-play rushes - defined as runs that cover more than 10 yards - through two games.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who took a chance on the rookie duo are getting a lot of rewards in return. Both backs have big play ability, and their respective teams are being creative in the ways they're used on a weekly basis. Cook and Hunt have RB1 upside every week no matter the opponent.

  NFL | Jonathan Williams not claimed    Mon Sep 4, 05:47 PM

Free-agent RB Jonathan Williams (Bills) went unclaimed Monday, Sept. 4, and is now a free agent.

Footballguys view: Something is amiss here...it has to be. Williams has talent and certainly flashed for the Bills in the preseason. Perhaps there's something behind the scenes (medical, off field) that is giving teams pause when it comes to adding Williams.

  NFL | Teams reaching out to Calvin Johnson?    Thu Aug 10, 10:09 PM

Retired Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson has been contacted by at least a half-dozen teams to gauge his interest in returning to the NFL, according to Mike Freeman of BleacherReport.com.

Footballguys view: The Lions would need to give up his rights in a trade, which might be very difficult to pull off. Still, very deep dynasty league owners should add Johnson just in case because the potential reward is so great.

  NFL | Rashad Jennings has talked with multiple teams    Wed Aug 2, 02:19 PM

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) told Sirius XM NFL Radio almost two weeks ago he's had 'simple conversations' with the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams and Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Jennings is a hard worker but aside from a solid 863 season with the Giants in 2015, has never really taken off the way we'd hoped he would. He's a backup with any of the listed teams and nothing more than that in fantasy if he lands on them.

  NFL | Darrelle Revis still waiting    Sat Jul 29, 02:42 PM

Free-agent CB Darrelle Revis (Jets) is still working out in hopes of playing in 2017, but he has not received much interest at this point.

Footballguys view: Revis isn't going to get top dollar like he's used to. If he wants to continue playing, it will likely be a short-term contract for near veteran minimum.

  NFL | Marcus Gilchrist cleared to play    Wed Jul 26, 05:44 PM

  NFL | Charges dropped against Lucky Whitehead    Tue Jul 25, 01:10 PM

Free-agent WR Lucky Whitehead (Cowboys) had the shoplifting charge that led the Dallas Cowboys releasing him Monday, July 24, dropped by Virginia authorities Tuesday, July 25.

Footballguys view: The optics are bad for the Cowboys here. They cut Whitehead before confirming the arrest. A man was arrested and gave false information. Whitehead is cleared from this incident and looking for a new team. This looks bad for the Cowboys as controversy and allegations circle around superstar running back Ezekiel Elliott. The team insists Elliott has done nothing wrong but were quick to action in this false charge for Whitehead.

  NFL | Alterraun Verner to work out this week    Sun Jul 23, 03:14 PM

Free-agent CB Alterraun Verner (Buccaneers) has a workout scheduled with an undisclosed team sometime this week, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Footballguys view: Verner was a starting corner not all that long ago. When teams see the state of their secondaries or suffer an injury at corner, he'll surely get a call, but it's not a good sign for the team that signs him.

  NFL | Robert Griffin III attracting mild interest    Sun Jul 23, 02:25 AM

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Browns) has started to attract 'mild interest' from NFL clubs, four months following his March release from Cleveland.

Footballguys view: As teams start to see their backup quarterback situations up close in camp, that mild interest could heat up. Griffin is definitely good enough to be a #2 for some teams, but his durability has been far from reliable. There's a chance he won't be signed until midseason, but Griffin can still help a team.

  NFL | No Ezekiel Elliott discipline this weekend    Fri Jul 21, 03:00 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will not learn of any potential discipline from the league Friday, July 21, or over the weekend, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: The best hope for the Cowboys is they hear before the start of camp so they can plan for the opening week or two. We don't expect a long suspension, if one at all. Given how mercurial the league is in levying penalties, your guess is as good as ours. If he misses just a game or two, you can survive it though and he remains a strong choice for your first pick if he is available.

  NFL | Anquan Boldin talking with teams    Mon Jul 17, 06:08 PM

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) said he has talked with several teams about the possibility of signing and is scheduled to meet with an undisclosed team Sunday, July 23.

Footballguys view: Boldin showed last year that he could still make plays at the pro level. We should see him sign with a new team sometime around the start of training camp.

  NFL | Johnny Manziel talks with teams    Sat Jul 15, 05:49 PM

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) said he has talked with a few teams about returning to the NFL.

Footballguys view: There has been little news about Manziel this year, but first and foremost he needs to convince teams that his life is back in order. We'd be surprised if some team took a chance on Manziel at this point of the offseason with training camp right around the corner. Perhaps he'll be able to get on board with a new team at a later date.

  NFL | Multiple teams interested in Greg Hardy    Sat Jul 15, 10:27 AM

Several NFL teams have expressed interest in free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Cowboys), according to agent Drew Rosenhaus, although no deal appears imminent.

Footballguys view: Hardy was out of the league last year due to his off-field issues. There may be some interest but we don't see teams falling all over themselves to add an oft-troubled player like Hardy.

  NFL | Tony Romo committed to retirement    Fri Jul 14, 02:14 AM

Retired QB Tony Romo said he was 'done' playing football during an interview on the NFL Network Tuesday, July 12. That was a modification of what he initially said in April when he stated that his odds of staying retired were 'about 99 percent.'

Footballguys view: Romo is getting some sweet TV money to be in the broadcast booth for CBS. He's not going to get hit anymore and has a job he could be in for the next 20 years. Even when injuries hit in training camp, we can't see Romo walking away from that.

  NFL | DeAngelo Williams healthy    Wed Jul 12, 05:32 PM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Steelers) missed nine games this past season because of a knee injury but said he is completely healthy.

Footballguys view: Williams wants to sign on with a team for the 2017 season, and he might get some interest when injuries hit in training camp. He's drawn zero interest on the open market so far this offseason.

  NFL | DeAngelo Williams won't play for four teams    Wed Jul 12, 09:44 AM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Steelers) said the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys are four teams he wouldn't be interested in playing for.

Footballguys view: His split with the Panthers was rough, so he's not going back there. He doesn't want to play in Dallas because he grew up a 49ers fan. The Browns are pretty much self explanatory and the Jaguars are better than Cleveland but not enough for Williams to want to play there. He's gotten zero interest on the open market to this point, and Williams might only get interest when injuries strike in training camp.

  NFL | Rashad Jennings expects to sign with club    Mon Jul 10, 11:59 PM

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) said he expects to sign with a team before the season begins. He mentioned how he's in the best shape of his life and that's what he's 'known for across the league.'

Footballguys view: Jennings should be somewhere for training camp. He's a good all-purpose back, but it's a young man's position so that's why he's a free agent right now. Once injuries hit in camp, Jennings should get some interest.

  NFL | Rashad Jennings hoping to find a home    Sun Jul 9, 08:22 PM

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) said he has maintained a strict workout regimen and is in the best shape of his life, and he is hoping to sign with a team before the start of the season.

Footballguys view: Jennings is fresh off of a stint on Dancing with the Stars. His pass blocking and receiving should get him a look as we get closer to the beginning of the season and teams assess the readiness of their younger backs to handle passing down work.

  NFL | Tavares Bingham eligible for supplemental draft    Sat Jul 8, 10:11 AM

Georgia Military College DL Tavares Bingham will be eligible for the NFL's supplemental draft Wednesday, July 12, according to a league spokesman. He had exhausted his junior college playing eligibility after the 2015 season and was academically ineligible to sign with a four-year college last year.

Footballguys view: Bingham is a massive 6'4" 290 but he is an unknown quantity with no experience above the junior college/military academy level. He's a defensive line project who is unlikely to be chosen in the supplemental draft.

  NFL | Marques Rodgers eligible for supplemental draft    Sat Jul 8, 10:04 AM

Western New Mexico RB Marques Rodgers will be eligible for the NFL's supplemental draft Wednesday, July 12, according to a league spokesman. He was academically ineligible to play in 2016 and had one year of college eligibility remaining.

Footballguys view: Rodgers was a Division II All-American. He's a small back at 5'9" 175, but an accomplished pass catcher. He's likely to go undrafted but could get into a camp.

  NFL | Marcus Gilchrist rehabbing well    Thu Jul 6, 02:36 PM

Free-agent FS Marcus Gilchrist (Jets) is recovering well in his rehabilitation from a torn patellar tendon. He is expected to be medically cleared in early August.

Footballguys view: Gilchrist may not end up on the team, one which is clearly blowing everything up. If he does stick, expect him to see a reduction in time and an expulsion in 2018. Gilchrist has little fantasy upside and has been wildly inconsistent for Fantasy GMs.

  NFL | Dorial Green-Beckham unclaimed    Wed Jul 5, 05:18 PM

Free-agent WR Dorial Green-Beckham (Eagles) cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Green-Beckham has the skill but has not been able to put the rest of it together. Even if someone gives him another chance, he probably won't walk into a situation where he is able to contribute right away. Now that he has busted out in OTAs with what is being reported as a lazy and near-effortless performance. We think it's safe to write him off as a bust.

  NFL | DeAngelo Williams still wants to play    Wed Jul 5, 09:10 AM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Steelers) said he's waiting on a phone call from an interested team to continue his playing career.

Footballguys view: Once someone gets hurt, he may hear his phone ring, but unless he drops into a perfect situation - which he had to an extent from a fantasy standpoint when he backed up a suspended Le'Veon Bell - his fantasy value will be a bit shaky. He did look a step closer last season when he played, so age and ability are also a concern.

  NFL | Darrelle Revis training to play    Tue Jul 4, 08:59 AM

Free-agent CB Darrelle Revis (Jets) is training in Florida in anticipation to play in 2017.

Footballguys view: The question is, which team is going to sign him and for how much? Revis' best days are clearly behind him, and there has been talk of him moving to safety, but is he willing and what is he asking? He didn't have a huge impact last season and we don't think he will this season either.

  NFL | Roy Miller receives interest    Fri Jun 30, 04:42 PM

Free-agent DT Roy Miller (Jaguars) said he has received interest from several teams and expects to visit with some teams in July. Miller has received clearance to practice after recovering from an Achilles' injury.

Footballguys view: Miller is a seasoned veteran but is more of a rotational player at this point in his career. Now that he's been cleared, we're certain at least a handful of teams will be interested.

  NFL | Zach Orr will have to manage neck issue    Thu Jun 29, 09:39 AM

Free-agent LB Zach Orr (neck) has been told by doctors that the strength of the tendons and ligaments should protect his C1 vertebra, which is only 80 percent formed. He has received the green light to play, but he'll have to manage his congenital neck issue.

Footballguys view: Player safety is on the front burner more than ever in the NFL, so any team interested in Orr must have a plan for managing this injury. Neck problems are tricky and can be quite problematic. Orr's agent says he's now been contacted by 15 teams in the NFL, so there's no doubt the league is interested in the free agent linebacker. His price tag will likely be incentive laden to cover the team's backside in case the neck becomes problematic again.

Free-agent RB Karlos Williams (Steelers) has been suspended for at least one year, according to a source.

  NFL | Zach Orr contemplating a comeback    Wed Jun 28, 08:06 AM

Former Baltimore Ravens LB Zach Orr is exploring an NFL comeback, and he's an unrestricted free agent.

Footballguys view: Orr said he was going to call it a career back in January due to neck problems. The leading tackler for the Ravens in 2016, the two sides were talking about a contract extension before he retired. They didn't tender him as a restricted free agent and now Orr can sign with any team. Doctors have given Orr a new opinion on the neck/spine injury, but he'll have to pass a physical before signing anywhere.

  NFL | Justin Gilbert's suspension increased    Tue Jun 20, 05:08 PM

Free-agent CB Justin Gilbert's (Steelers) four-game suspension was increased to one year by commissioner Roger Goodell Tuesday, June 20.

Footballguys view: Cue the "That Escalated Quickly" drop from 'The Anchorman'and write 'done' next to his career. That puts both of the Browns 2014 NFL Draft first round picks out of the league. Well done, Cleveland.

  NFL | Anquan Boldin waiting to sign before camp    Tue Jun 20, 12:16 AM

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) said that his preference is to sign with a team 'right before training camp.'

Footballguys view: Boldin proved last year with the Lions that he still had something left in the tank. He's looking for the 'right situation' and previous reports had indicated Boldin wants to stay near his Florida home. The veteran receiver will still be playing somewhere in 2017.

Free-agent DT Vince Wilfork (Texans) said he still has not decided if he will continue his playing career and that he does not have a timetable for his decision.

Footballguys view: Wilfork is not the player he used to be, and we can't see a ton of interest generating for him even if he wants to play in 2017. Texans GM Rick Smith believes Wilfork is likely done playing football.

  NFL | Tramon Williams looking for contender    Sat Jun 17, 02:43 PM

Free-agent CB Tramon Williams (Browns) said he looking to sign with a contending team and is willing to play cornerback or safety.

Footballguys view: At 34-years old, Williams is not the player he once was during his heyday with the Packers. Williams started five games at cornerback for the Browns last season and two games at safety. If someone picks him up, it's likely going to come with the expectation that the veteran will play safety.

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) may prefer to sign with a team closer to his Florida home, according to people close to Boldin.

Footballguys view: None of the Florida teams (Jaguars, Dolphins, Buccaneers) really have a need at the wide receiver position. Boldin has something left in the tank and could find a new home before the start of the regular season.
