We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
On Saturday, Jay Glazer suggested that the Giants could look to trade Eli Manning as the trade deadline approaches. Daniel Jones is the present and future face of the franchise and trading Manning would both remove and distraction in the media and reinforce Jones’ hold on the starting job. There has not been any interest in the veteran as of yet, but who knows. We cannot imagine he has much value, but who would have thought the Broncos would give a decent pick for Joe Flacco.
There has been much ink spilled on the organizational divide in Washington, centered around coach Jay Gruden’s preference for quarterbacks not named “Dwayne Haskins”. Beat writer Les Carpenter wrote last week that Gruden was not in favor of drafting Haskins. According to Carpenter, Gruden was overruled by owner Daniel Snyder, who loved Haskins’ ability. With Gruden’s team circling the drain and the coach starting Colt McCoy against the Patriots, it is difficult to reason not playing Haskins. Yes, the coach did insert the rookie into the Week 4 game against New York and he did not play well. But the time has arrived that Gruden has been relieved of his duties, and the time is quickly approaching that Haskins will be on the field.
