As with any investment, building your fantasy portfolio includes assessing your appetite for risk and taking calculated chances. A player with a history of injury issues will often be available at a discount on draft day, if you are willing to assume the risk that a propensity for missing games could continue.
Information is still surfacing, but it appears that both running backs of the Pittsburgh Steelers were arrested on Wednesday for possession of marijuana.
Greatness can be a fragile thing. From the decline of the Roman Empire to legendary boxer Mike Tyson getting upset by James “Buster” Douglas, once you’re the king of the hill the only place to go is down. To say that Roddy White has been a disappointment thus far would be an understatement.
Following a 14-yard pass play to Julio Jones, left tackle Sam Baker remained on the field and ultimately had to be taken to the locker room on a cart. After initially being diagnosed with a hyperextended right knee, it was later revealed that Baker tore his patellar tendon, ending his season.
Jeremy Maclin is sitting out Thursday’s practice and considered “unlikely” to play in the Eagles’ second preseason game against the New England Patriots.
Despite a very small sample of Hyde in this offense, it was easy to envision Carlos Hyde and Frank Gore having their way with opponents in 2014. The duo should wreak havoc on defenses in an aggressive smash mouth attack this season.

As draft day draws ever closer, fantasy owners start to get wrapped up in trying to find that next hidden gem. Sometimes it’s a rookie. Sometimes it’s that guy who’s “guaranteed” to break out in his third year. My question is, what about the guys who are already here?
The San Francisco 49ers opened training camp last week with one the deepest stable of running backs in the NFL, but over the weekend that group was thinned out considerably.
There is no question that Brandin Cooks has the potential to surpass Kenny Stills’ rookie numbers and step up into a starting role immediately in his rookie season. The only cause for concern in terms of fantasy production is the crowded house that is the Saints offense.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts is expected to miss several weeks after being forced from practice on Friday. The Jaguars expect Shorts to be ready for the start of the season but his progress will be monitored.
Remember last year when Bills’ OC Nate Hackett said they would be “running Spiller until he throws up”? This little comment caught fire, dug into the fantasy hive mind and lit the fuse under Spiller’s meteoric rise into the stratosphere of pre-season fantasy rankings.
