Breaking News: Jordy Nelson suffers torn ACL?

2015 fantasy football player spotlights

Jordy Nelson

8/23/2015: Jordy Nelson has reportedly suffered a torn ACL. He left the team’s second preseason game and went to the ground. He did walk off the field prior, but initial reports are that he suffered a torn ACL. We will confirm all this and get back to you with an update, but give Randall Cobb a big bump into the locked-in fantasy WR1 group (which he was already sniffing), and give Davante Adams a nice bump into a sneaky good fantasy WR3-type value, and look for both Jeff Janis and Ty Montgomery to get some more run. Eddie Lacy also becomes more valuable in the team’s passing attack, making him a top 4 overall lock in all drafts. Aaron Rodgers definitely takes a little hit, but honestly, he is still right there with Andrew Luck regardless. Our Analyzers are updated already reflecting this news. Read More Spotlights

8/11/2015: According to recent reports, the Cardinals have offered free agent RB Chris Johnson a one-year deal. It’s tough to say how accurate these reports are, but even if accurate, it’s even tougher to predict how this will shake out. If you are a dynasty leaguer and have large rosters in your league, he is… Read Spotlight

Ameer Abdullah (RB/DET)

8/4/2015: I talked about Ameer Abdullah being one of this year’s biggest sleepers and home run picks back in June, but it’s time to give this topic a bump. His value is climbing, as most all relatively ‘in the know’ fantasy owners out there realize that his time is near. However, he can still EXPLODE from his current ADP (which is gradually climbing upward and is sitting near the 6.01 range). On one hand, that’s your 6th-drafted player in redraft should you take him that high, but with what looks to be a bare minimum of 10-14 touches per game, the risk of disaster (for the cost) is low. On the other hand, because he has “The Next Arian Foster” type feel to him, he could win you a league should he land at 6.01 value. I’ve said this all off-season, and last off-season… Read Spotlight

Arian Foster (RB/HOU)

8/4/2015: We have bad news for Arian Foster owners, as the runner is going to have groin surgery and will start the season on the reserve/designated to return list. This could have him sidelined until Week 10. While the Texans could sign another player… Read Spotlight

7/28/2015: According to a few reports, free agent rusher Chris Johnson (CJ2K) has been in contact with the Cowboys, and he has been feeling ‘explosive’ as of late. I will start off by saying that in no way shape or form is Johnson a lock for even landing a job in the NFL, let alone signing with Dallas and beating out all other Dallas rushers, but he should be… Read Spotlight

Duke Johnson (RB/CLE)

7/28/2015: Duke Johnson reportedly took some first-team reps away from Terrance West in minicamp OTAs. Despite the Browns suggesting they will ride the hot hand at the running back position this year, Johnson is a strong prospect and is clearly already gaining some ground/momentum. Everyone should… Read Spotlight

Le’Veon Bell (RB/PIT)

7/28/2015: Le’Veon Bell’s three-game suspension has been reduced to two games. Bell was facing a three-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. This gives Bell a huge bump, as… Read Spotlight

CJ Anderson

7/20/2015: CJ Anderson had a fantastic 2014 fantasy campaign, as an early Montee Ball injury opened the door to the Broncos’ starting running back job. Anderson took off with the opportunity, and he even has the support of Peyton Manning right now. So, what’s not to like? Well, I won’t say I don’t like Anderson heading into 2015, and I won’t even predict he fails; however, with… Read Spotlight

Ameer Abdullah

6/23/2015: Ameer Abdullah has some serious upside; in fact, he has monster upside. This isn’t to say I don’t like Joique Bell a lot, as he could have a big season if he can stay healthy. The thing is, though, it’s June, and while Bell could be solid in 2015, we could be looking at a future stud in Abdullah, so dynasty owners need to be on the lookout. His value is consistently rising, so you most likely won’t be able to steal him away from his current owner in any of your dynasty leagues, but it’s worth a try. And, if you can’t steal him away, it isn’t a bad idea to… Read Spotlight

CJ Spiller

6/16/2015: You gotta love the value of CJ Spiller heading into 2015. He has an ADP in the late 4th-round, or even early 5th, yet he has high-end RB2-type appeal (if not more) heading into 2015. His ADP is around players like Golden Tate, Andre Ellington, Jonathan Stewart, Jordan Matthews and Rashad JenningsRead Spotlight
