NFL | Devin Hester receiving interest

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 09:44:50 -0700

Free-agent WR Devin Hester (Falcons) said he has been contacted by seven teams since being released by the Atlanta Falcons. Hester wants to be completely healthy before signing with a team.

Fantasy Tip: Hester probably will sign with a team at some point during the preseason but likely will not have a big role in an offense. Owners in all leagues can avoid Hester during their drafts.

NFL | Dallas out on free-agent Nick Foles

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 12:23:06 -0700

Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Rams) is not an option for the Dallas Cowboys, owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Foles will likely start the season in a backup role, which makes him a fantasy afterthought in the majority of leagues. Although, should he find his way into a starting gig, he would return to being a low-end QB2 worth owning in two-QB leagues and a potential streaming and DFS option in favorable matchups.

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:15:23 -0700

Free-agent WR Roddy White (Falcons) wants to play this season and is in contact with a few teams, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: White's fantasy value will depend on the team he signs with, if he even signs with someone. As has been the case throughout his career, he will likely still have more fantasy value in PPR formats. View him as a late-round option in such formats.

NFL | Ray Rice would donate entire salary

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 19:03:45 -0700

Free-agent RB Ray Rice said that if he gets a chance to return to the NFL this season, he would donate his entire salary to organizations with programs focusing on education and prevention of domestic violence and supporting survivors and their families. "Me donating my salary is something that'll be from the heart for me," Rice stated. "I only want to play football so I can end it the right way for my kids and for the people that really believed in me. But I know there are a lot of people affected by domestic violence, and every dollar helps. It's raising awareness."

Fantasy Tip: That's a very nice gesture on the part of Rice, but as he even acknowledged last week, his career is probably over. Even aside from his off-the-field incident, the three-time Pro Bowler exhibited a notable decline in his last season, which came in 2013, as he averaged a career-low 3.1 yards on 214 carries. Still 29 years old, there's always a chance he could resurface at some point in the future. In the meantime, he's been staying in game shape by working out near his home in Connecticut.
