Sat Oct 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

fantasy football ESPN reports WR Percy Harvin is officially a member of the New york Jets, who formally announced the trade shortly after noon on Saturday. "Percy is a versatile, dynamic player who has been productive on offense and special teams," GM John Idzik said in a statement. "We’re excited about adding him to the Jets."


-- Sources: Jets Acquire Percy Harvin --
Fri Oct 17, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

fantasy football ESPN reports the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to trade WR Percy Harvin to the New York Jets, sources have.

-- Jonas Gray Has Potential --
Fri Oct 17, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray’s first career run, a 5-yard rush off left tackle Thursday night, shows how he is the type of back who isn’t afraid to put his head down and initiate contact. At 230 pounds, he’s more of a bulldozer. Looks like something to work with there.

-- Brandon Marshall Calls Out Cutler & Others --
Sun Oct 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports frustration boiled over inside the Chicago Bears locker room Sunday, just minutes after the team fell 27-14 at Soldier Field to the Miami Dolphins. Yelling could be heard from outside the double doors, and a source said WR Brandon Marshall called out quarterback Jay Cutler. The source said there "are some very selfish individuals in the locker room." But it's not out of the ordinary for Marshall to strongly voice his opinion to Cutler, as the two are close friends off the field. Marshall, meanwhile, didn't deny there was friction in the aftermath of the game. "We lost, there should be a lot of frustration," Marshall said. "You should hear frustration. We're 3-4. Yeah, this means everything to a lot of guys in this locker room. This means a lot." While it was believed Marshall also yelled at PK Robbie Gould, the receiver declined to answer when specifically asked. "OK, were you in here?" Marshall asked. "Were you in this locker room? This is a team matter. That has nothing to do with you. There's a lot of guys this means a lot to. We're 3-4. We need to play better. That's unacceptable. That's unacceptable. Unacceptable; shouldn't have lost today, shouldn't be 3-4. [The] offense [has] got to play better. It's as simple as that." Cutler threw an interception and was credited for two fumbles (one came as the result of RB Ka'Deem Carey dropping a lateral) as the Dolphins scored 10 points off two of the quarterback's turnovers.

-- C.J. Spiller Could be Traded --
Sun Oct 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller could be traded. "The Cowboys had interest in Spiller last year, he's in a contract year, (and there are) questions about his role," Ian Rapoport said. "We'll see what interest he generates this year." The dynamic playmaker has lost snaps to veteran RB Fred Jackson and even RB Anthony Dixon recently. With Jackson and Dixon both getting new contracts and the RB Bryce Brown trade, signs point to Spiller being on his way out at some point. HC Doug Marrone has never seemed to figure out how to best utilize Spiller's skills.

-- Jermaine Gresham Could be Traded --
Sun Oct 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham could be traded. "They already have TE Tyler Eifert coming off an injury," Ian Rapoport said. "It seems they've already replaced (Gresham), he could be had too." When Eifert returns, the Bengals might not have much use for the veteran tight end, Gresham. If they plan to let him walk this season, it's worth getting something in return for him. The Seahawks are looking for a tight end.

-- Vincent Jackson Drawing Trading Interest --
Sun Oct 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson is drawing a lot of interest in the trading market. "They are getting a ton of calls on him," Ian Rapoport said. "With just one win, I'm told they are open to anything even though they love him as a player." Trading Jackson would strip down the NFL's tallest receivers corps, but perhaps the Bucs believe they have his future replacement in rookie WR Mike Evans.

-- C.J. Spiller to be More Involved Today --

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Seattle proposed sending WR Percy Harvin to Denver, sources say, in exchange for Pro Bowl TE Julius Thomas. The Broncos never pondered it.

-- Ray Rice Could be Reinstated by Mid-November --
Sun Oct 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

CBS Sports reports former Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice remains suspended indefinitely following the publication of the video of him striking his now-wife, Janay, in a casino elevator, but he could be reinstated within the next four weeks, sources said. An appeal hearing date has been set, with a final decision expected to come in an expeditious manner thereafter, and all of that could be resolved by mid-November, which would conceivably allow Rice to sign with another team this season. Perhaps, even if reinstated, teams will find him too controversial to sign, but there is every expectation his playing status will be resolved before the NFL's investigation into its handling of his case, being conducted by former FBI chief Robert Mueller, is completed.

-- Seahawks Talked to Browns About a Harvin Trade... For Jordan Cameron --

In addition, other players may have emerged as clicks or flicks. Thus, this UPDATE has been born. In addition, I'm going to offer up some fantasy reaches to consider for owners in larger leagues that find themselves in a real bind due to injuries or other situations.

-- Lynch & Others Unhappy About Harvin Trade --
Sat Oct 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawyn Lynch, a friend of Harvin’s, indicated on Twitter that he wasn’t happy about it, and according to one report, Lynch’s feelings go beyond just “unhappy.” The New York Daily News reports that Lynch almost didn’t get on the team bus for the trip to the airport for Sunday’s game at St. Louis because he was so upset about Harvin getting traded. That’s a bit surprising considering that if anything, Lynch should be a beneficiary of Harvin leaving: Losing Harvin makes Lynch a more integral part of the Seahawks’ offense. But Lynch isn’t an easy person to keep happy, and his personal friendship with Harvin apparently trumps any benefit of getting the ball more. The Seahawks don’t want Lynch to be unhappy (and in fact just a couple months ago they restructured his contract to make him happy), but Lynch’s unhappiness could become the result of Harvin leaving. Lynch isn’t the only player who seems upset about it. DE Cliff Avril and LB Bruce Irvin both also indicated on Twitter that they weren’t happy about Harvin leaving.

-- Rams Going with the Hot Hand at RB --
Sat Oct 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer said the team is using a "hot hand" approach at the tailback position. "Early in the game, we try to get guys multiple touches," Schottenheimer said, "then we try to go with the hot hand late in the game."

-- Why the Seahawks Traded Percy Harvin --
Fri Oct 17, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Seattle Times reports one source said the Seahawks had decided WR Percy Harvin, 26, “just wasn’t a fit” with the rest of the team and the trade had as much to do with what was happening in the locker room as it did Harvin’s production on the field. The team, a source said, was “just ready to move on” from Harvin despite his obvious on-field gifts. Sources also said a few incidents in recent months helped set the stage for Friday’s stunning trade. One source confirmed a report that Harvin had gotten into an altercation with former Seahawk WR Golden Tate before the Super Bowl that resulted in Tate getting a black eye. A source also said Harvin had an altercation with Seattle WR Doug Baldwin in the week leading up to the final exhibition game this August at Oakland that resulted in Baldwin getting a cut on his chin and each player being excused from practices that week. Harvin, who did not practice for two days before that game, did not make the trip to Oakland for what the team said at the time was “a personal matter.” One final straw, a league source said, came in Sunday’s 30-23 loss to Dallas when Harvin apparently balked at going back into the game in the fourth quarter. Harvin played 26 of 48 official snaps but did not play 11 of the final 17. He finished with six touches for minus-1 yard. “He’s just a time bomb,” one NFL source said, describing him as “too moody” and noting that Minnesota had also grown tired of dealing with Harvin, which precipitated his trade to Seattle in March 2013. Also a factor in the trade is that moving Harvin and his hefty contract will clear up significant salary-cap space, with one source saying it will help the team keep QB Russell Wilson, LB Bobby Wagner and LB K.J. Wright. All are players the team could re-sign or extend after the 2014 season.

-- Eddie Lacy Has Yet to Carry More Than 17 Times in Any One Game in 2014 --
Fri Oct 17, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

PackersNews.com reports six weeks into the 2014 season, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has yet to see more than 17 carries in a single game. As a rookie, he ventured north of 20 attempts in 10 of the 13 games he finished last season. There's reason for the changes. The star quarterback is running the show again and Packers HC Mike McCarthy is favoring a backfield platoon with veteran RB James Starks to keep both players healthy for the long haul. There's no qualms about using either Lacy or Starks on an entire series without substitution, but the quandary with power backs is getting them enough touches to get going. Right now, the Packers rank 24th in rushing offense (94.8 yards per game). "It's definitely not easy, but it's different," said Lacy, who is averaging 13.3 carries per game. "It's two different years. No two years are the same. And you may be able to run the ball good one year and you can't run the ball as good the next year. It's time to pass the ball or something like that." First-year running backs coach Sam Gash said he never was a part of a meeting about limiting Lacy's workload even though he's on pace for 80 fewer carries as his rookie year. The only conversation Gash was privy to was winning. At the moment, Lacy and Starks are making the most of their situation. As Gash illustrates, there's no animosity between the two players. Lacy even bequeathed Starks a Green Lantern T-shirt to wear under his jersey last week, while he continues to wear his customary Hulk undershirt.

Due to the nature of his position and the expectations placed on our staff, we made the organizational decision to part ways with Isaiah.”

-- Roddy White Not Making Excuses --
Thu Oct 16, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports WR Roddy White didn't make any excuses. Instead, the veteran Atlanta Falcons wide receiver pointed the finger at himself. White knows he hasn't been the same player so far this season. He hasn't gotten into a rhythm. He's had some uncharacteristic drops, including a key one in last Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Chicago Bears. "I've gotten off to a really slow start," White said. "Not one of my favorable years that I'm having. But I've got to turn my game around for our team to start playing better. I'm a leader on this team, and I haven't been going out there and playing like Roddy White football. I've got to get back to just being myself -- go out there and just cut it loose -- and whatever happens, happens." White enters Sunday's game against Baltimore with 19 catches in five games for an average of 3.8 receptions per game. Coming into the season, White had averaged 4.8 catches per game or better in every season since becoming a regular starter (2007), with his career low being that 4.8 average last season. According to ESPN Stats & Information, White has three drops this season on 39 targets. Those three drops are tied for the fourth most in the league among wide receivers. And his 7.7 percent drop percentage is the 10th highest among 88 qualified wide receivers.

Thu Oct 16, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell waived his right to a preliminary hearing on marijuana possession and driving under the influence charges and hopes to enter a first-offender's program that could result in the charges being dismissed and his record expunged, his attorney said Wednesday. Defense attorney Robert Del Greco Jr. said Bell is also being tested for drugs weekly under NFL rules and will likely face a two-game NFL suspension once the criminal case wraps up, probably early next year. Bell didn't comment before or after the hearing, but Del Greco described the player as "a 22-year-old who recognizes his mistake." "By all indications from what I can tell, hopefully Le'Veon will never be standing next to a criminal defense attorney again," Del Greco said.

-- Seahawks Know Marshawn Lynch Must Get More Carries --

The Tacoma News-Tribune reports Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell realizes the howls at him after games such as last weekend’s loss to Dallas in which Seattle’s four-time Pro Bowl RB Marshawn Lynch got 10 carries — seven fewer than Carolina QB Cam Newton had Sunday — are part of his job. “Yeah, that’s part of it, you know. I mean, there’s going to be cries for everything, all the time,” a seemingly not-offended Bevell said pleasantly following Wednesday’s indoor practice at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. “The fantasy owners … I’m not a fantasy owner. I don’t care about anyone’s (fantasy) points. But I do care about us winning the game. And Marshawn is a huge key for us winning the game. And we do — and I — have to do a better job of giving him the ball.”

-- C.J. Spiller Blocks Out Trade Talk --
Thu Oct 16, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Buffalo News reports RB C.J. Spiller hopes he’s not playing out his final days as a member of the Buffalo Bills. But with fewer than two weeks until the NFL trade deadline – and Spiller’s role on the field shrinking by the week – it’s on everybody’s mind. Everybody, that is, except Spiller. “I block it out, man. I honestly do,” he said Wednesday. “I just focus on trying to get better at my craft. All that other stuff, if it happens, it happens. It’s not like I’m begging for it to happen. That’s something I can’t control.” Spiller, though, is in the final season of his contract. He recognizes the Bills have a responsibility to explore all their options – including a trade. “This organization is going to do what’s best for the organization to be in position to win ball games and win championships,” he said. “I want to be involved in that, be a part of that here at Buffalo, but if this organization decides to go in a different direction, I won’t have any bad feelings at all. That’s part of the business. I want to be a Bill.”
