Jones should be back to being one of the top-ranked fantasy receivers in drafts this summer, but he's coming off his second foot injury already.

Wilson is coming off a neck injury and it seems like the team could turn to Rashad Jennings as their lead back. Turnovers, injuries and bad luck have really changed the outlook of the once-promising Wilson...

The tweet noted that the team thinks he's an 'all-purpose player' and that he's very good at screens, which leads us to believe he could potentially be a three-down back. That's something Peyton Hillis is not, and David Wilson, who is coming off a neck injury, has yet to prove. Jennings could be in store for a big workload in 2014.

Saints HC Sean Payton suggested that third-year pro RB Travaris Cadet could take on "a little more of that role" that runner/receiver Darren Sproles has played in the Saints' offense over the past three years.
Caldwell: Matt Stafford's accuracy can be fixed
Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 9:21pm
At the center of many of his problems is a decline in accuracy, which sank all the way to 58.5 percent last year. That was 30th in the NFL.
"Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely, without question," Caldwell said, when asked if accuracy could be taught. As the story points out, Caldwell has a pretty good resume with QBs: He worked with Peyton Manning for nearly a decade in Indianapolis, and took him to a Super Bowl in 2009, and later rode Baltimore's Joe Flacco to a Super Bowl in 2012. He has a reputation around the league for knowing the fundamentals of the position, and just how to impart them.
Bradley: Gerhart has 'ability to play all 3 downs'
Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 9:14pm
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley went into some detail Tuesday about how much work newly signed running back Toby Gerhart could receive in 2014. And from the sound of it, Gerhart could get a good deal of the reps.
“He has the ability to play all three downs,” Bradley said Tuesday, according to a transcript from the Pro Football Writers of America. “How many carries he gets — we would like to run the ball over 40 percent of the time. There might be 28-30 carries in a game and there aren’t more running backs that carry more than 20 times a game."
Gerhart continues to get high praise after signing with the Jags. He has the potential to be a solid RB2 option this fall. Bradley's comments fall in line with what we expect, anywhere from 15-20 carries a game. In limited games, Gerhart has excelled with a big workload.

"We are hopeful we can get a deal done that works and Andy can put it behind him," Lewis said. "He can get back focusing on football. He doesn't have to go into the season and worry about this contract thing, every week someone is going to ask him a question … all those things that come into play later on. Let's get it behind us."
Despite some early playoff exits, the Bengals are committed to keeping Dalton around. However, he's still a QB2/committee-type of fantasy QB.
Tony Romo looks to be ahead of schedule
Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 8:30pm
“He is ahead of where we expected him to be,’’ owner Jerry Jones said.
The plan is for Romo to take part in organized team activities in at least a limited capacity, something he was unable to do last year after having a cyst removed from a different area of his back. Those sessions begin April 21. Jones added that Romo is performing the throwing motion, but has yet to actually throw. Still, things look good and we have Romo ranked as a higher-end QB2 at this point in the offseason. Things look a little brighter with new passing coordinator Scott Linehan coming over from Detroit, too. Romo could be a nice, later-round grab in fantasy drafts.

We currently have Bernard as an RB2 ranked 14th, so we think there will be progress, too. But the concern will be getting him consistent touches, something that didn't happen until about halfway through the season.

Adrian Peterson is getting hit too much, and Mike Zimmer vows to do something about it.
After watching plenty of film on Peterson since taking over as Vikings coach in January, Zimmer said the team needs to do more to get the star running back into the open field.
“He’s such a great player, a hall of fame player, one of the best ever,’’ Zimmer said Tuesday in an interview with ESPN at the NFL owners’ meetings in Orlando, Fla. “I think you always got to use those kind of guys. We’d like to run him into a few less bodies, so there’s not 11 of them meeting him at the (line of scrimmage).’’
Peterson rushed for 2,097 yards in 2012, the second most in NFL history. However, last year he fell off to 1,266 yards and missed two games in December due to injury. Peterson underwent surgery on his groin in January, but general manager Rick Spielman recently said he will be “fine’’ once offseason workouts get underway in April. He's still going to be a top fantasy RB on our board, but it would be nice if the Vikes could get him some help on offense.

Bills HC Doug Marrone says QB EJ Manuel's knee will be ready to go for all offseason workouts.

Ryan doesn't want to just hand the job to Vick at this point, but it would be hard to imagine Vick not being the favorite to win the competition. We like Vick as a possible QB2.
Mark Sanchez expected to sign with the Eagles

Sanchez will likely serve as Nick Foles' primary backup. He will have a chance to revive his career under HC Chip Kelly.
