Training Room: Updates on Julio, Wayne, Locker, CJ1K & Pierce
As organized team activities wind down and mandatory mini camps start up over the next few days, there will be many storylines about position battles, expectations for rookies and players recovering from injury. The majority of the time I advise fantasy football managers to take the stories about players recovering from an injury with a grain of salt, due to stories usually being blown out of proportion or being overemphasized in one aspect of the player’s rehab. Hearing stories that the player is “running, cutting, and jumping" or that he looks “really explosive” are great to hear from a rehab standpoint, but ultimately don’t mean that the players are deemed ready to contribute at a high level right away. Let’s take a look at some players that continue to get headlines on a week to week basis, and some other names that will be important to keep an eye on come draft day.
