Colts say T-Rich is 'not going anywhere'

Colts GM Ryan Grigson: Trent Richardson. Showed some progress. It's all about comfort level and confidence. We have patience. He's not going anywhere.

Fantasy Impact:

Soon-to-be 27 year-old Donald Brown is the better player, but he's a free agent and the Colts may not have the resources to bring him back. If Brown is out of the way, T-Rich will have his supporters based mainly on his (probable) high workload.

Dwayne Bowe wants to play leaner in 2014
Wednesday, January 15, 2014, 11:03am

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

There’s a belief that Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe, who is listed at 6 feet 2 and 221 pounds, could take a major step toward doing just that by having a strong offseason of conditioning, something that Bowe himself acknowledged during the radio interview.

“One thing I want to work on — my endurance,” Bowe said. “I was really, really tired that last game.”

Bowe said he plans on changing the way he eats, though he didn’t provide details. He said he played this year between 212 and 214 pounds but hopes to report to camp a little lighter to better fit the offense.

“I probably want to play at 208 and try to be as quick and swift as possible, because that’s the kind of receivers that Andy had when he was in Philly,” Bowe said. “I’d like to be more explosive and faster than I was this season. I just want to work on my work ethic a little more and become quicker and faster so I can be like DeSean Jackson and those speedy, quick guys.”

Fantasy Impact:

Bowe finished the season as the #44 fantasy WR, but was the #26 wideout from Week 11 to Week 16. (The Chiefs rested their starters in Week 17.) Bowe also posted 8-150-1 against the Colts in the Wildcard round of the playoffs, so there is some reason for optimism heading into 2014. Bowe also revealed that he has a small crack in his foot (which he calls a third-degree sprain) that won't require surgery.

Lions tag Ravens OC Jim Caldwell as new head coach

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions are hiring Jim Caldwell as their head coach, per a league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Caldwell coached for the Colts while Peyton Manning was there and guided the Ravens offense to a Super Bowl win during the 2012 season. Last season's offensive struggles are a concern, but the Lions obviously feel like his resume is strong enough to justify the hire.

Colts RB Vick Ballard's rehab has gone well. Believes he'll be ready to take the field for OTAs.

Fantasy Impact:

The Colts will have to decide if they want to let their most productive RB (Donald Brown) go in favor of Trent Richardson and Vick Ballard. Brown is a free agent and played well in a somewhat limited role this season.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen says his hip surgery was more intensive than originally planned. Made four month rehab into a six month rehab.

Fantasy Impact:

If Allen is good to go to start the season, he and Coby Fleener will each once again cap the other's upside.
