-- Josh Gordon Officially Reinstated; Eligible to Play Week #12 --
Fri Sep 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

fantasy football The Beacon Journal reports Browns WR Josh Gordon has officially been reinstated into the NFL. The NFL and NFL Players Association reached an agreement on a revised substance-abuse Friday, and Gordon’s season-long ban stemming from a positive marijuana test in the offseason has been reduced to a 10-game suspension. Gordon has already served two-tenths of his suspension by missing the first two games of the season, so he must sit out the Browns’ next eight games, including their matchup Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens at FirstEnergy Stadium. He will be eligible to play again Nov. 23 when the Browns visit the Atlanta Falcons. Gordon is now allowed to work out and attend meetings at the Browns’ headquarters. He won’t be allowed to practice until the week leading up to his first game back. The season-long ban permitted him to meet with his clinician at the team’s facility, but it prohibited him from working out and attending meetings.

-- A.P. to Try to Get Trial Moved Up --
Sun Sep 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports a source with knowledge of the situation says an effort will be made to accelerated the trial date for Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, with the goal of getting it set for 2014. The broader goal will be to resolve the charges in time for Peterson to return to action for the Vikings this year. Of course, Peterson would need to resolve the charges in a way that doesn’t expose him to a potential suspension without pay under the personal-conduct policy. Currently, he’s suspended as a practical matter with pay, until the legal process is resolved.

-- Ray Rice to Claim NFL Extended Punishment Based Upon Edited Videotape --
Sun Sep 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports one of the chief arguments that RB Ray Rice will make in the appeal of his indefinite suspension is that the NFL extended his punishment on the basis of an edited videotape, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Legal sources told Schefter that the TMZ tape of Rice hitting his then-fiancee was a cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed version of the events that took place in the Atlantic City casino elevator. Rice's side is expected to argue that the NFL suspended the former Baltimore Ravens running back indefinitely off an edited videotape that was not the extended version. Robert Mueller, who has been appointed by the NFL to investigate the league's handling of the Rice case, also is expected to have access to the contents of the full elevator security video, not just the edited TMZ version, according to sources.

-- Mort: Wes Welker to be a Third Down or Role Player Today --
Sun Sep 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports he expects Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker to be a third-down or role player in today's game at Seattle.

-- Danny Amendola: The Invisible Man --
Sun Sep 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Boston Globe reports brought to New England last year to be WR Wes Welker’s replacement, WR Danny Amendola instead has been the invisible man in the Patriots’ offense, as Edelman has stolen his thunder. Amendola has three measly catches for 16 yards through two games. He played all of 18 snaps last week against the Vikings, with no catches and just two targets (one called back by penalty). It’s a continuation from the end of last year, when he had one pass thrown his way in the AFC Championship game, which he dropped. On the surface, Amendola looks like yet another receiver who can’t figure out the Patriots’ offense and get on the same page with Brady. “I’m not really worried about that,” Amendola said. “Just worried about doing my job each week, and focusing on the Raiders.” That’s certainly not what the Patriots envisioned when they handed him a fat five-year contract last offseason, which in practical matters will pay him $12 million over the first two years. Brady was pragmatic last week when asked about his trust level with Amendola. “I have a lot of trust in Danny,” QB Tom Brady said. “He battled through some injuries last year and has had a great spring, great training camp, and he’s been out there quite a bit. It’s my responsibility to get him the ball.” But Brady’s true feelings on his receivers aren’t hard to decipher. From Aug. 13: “If it doesn’t happen in practice, it’s hard to imagine that it’s just magically going to happen in a game.” And from Sept. 3: “I’m not going to look that way if I don’t feel comfortable with that particular player.” So, obviously, there’s a disconnect between Brady and Amendola — one they haven’t been able to figure out after spending two full offseasons and one-plus regular season together. “Coach always says, ‘Practice execution becomes game reality,’ and that’s true,” Brady said. “Offensive football is about anticipation, and it’s about awareness and doing things on time, and you only get that in practice.” So, how is practice going? “We keep making improvements,” Brady replied. “I think we’re still building.” Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

-- Brandon LaFell Frustrated He's Being Used Only as a Blocker --
Sun Sep 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Boston Globe reports Patriots RB Brandon LaFell was a consistent producer for four years in Carolina before signing with New England in the offseason, catching between 36 and 49 passes each year and surpassing 600 receiving yards in each of the last three seasons. But after being given $3 million guaranteed by the Patriots this offseason, LaFell doesn’t have a catch through two games. He wasn’t even targeted last week against the Vikings, as LaFell, a physical receiver at 6 feet 3 inches and 210 pounds, was used almost exclusively as a blocker in the run game. LaFell wants to catch passes, not block a safety. “I’m frustrated as hell, man,” he said. “I want to catch passes like every other guy in here, like every receiver around the league. But the game plan is not for me to catch, it’s to block. So that’s what I’ve got to do.”

-- Rob Bironas Killed in Car Crash --
Sun Sep 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Nashville Tennessean reports former Tennessee Titans and free-agent PK Rob Bironas was killed in an overnight car crash in Nashville. He was 36. According to Metro police, Bironas was involved in a single-vehicle crash in the 800 block of Battery Lane around 11 p.m. Saturday. Bironas lost control of the SUV he was driving while traveling at a high rate of speed, and the vehicle went off the road and hit several trees before ending up in a drainage culvert, upside down. Bironas was transported Vanderbilt University Medical Center and pronounced dead on arrival. Our sincerest condolences go to his family and friends.

-- Week #3: Picks to Click/Flick & Fantasy Reaches --
Sat Sep 20, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

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.

-- What's Going On with Riley Cooper? --
Sat Sep 20, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Eagles WR Riley Cooper probably benefited most from WR DeSean Jackson's departure in terms of his contract, though perhaps not on the field. His role could be diminished with the addition of RB Darren Sproles and the ascension of TE Zach Ertz. And despite the Eagles' assertions that Jackson did not open things up for Cooper, there is less proof that last season wasn't a fluke. HC Chip Kelly has said that he believes he has more balance at the skill positions this season. To be able to spread the ball around, you often need unselfish players who aren't worried about their numbers. "Those are the type of people he wants in here," Cooper said of Kelly. "He doesn't want . . . me complaining about, 'I'm not getting this many catches.' I just want to win games." Cooper admitted that he was "pushing a little bit." He was hard on himself for not hanging on to a perfectly thrown pass from QB Nick Foles in the end zone against the Colts. But like Kelly and OC Pat Shurmur, he cautioned that it was early and that he heard the same questions last season. "It's a long year, and for me that's how it always goes," Cooper said. "Everyone's always questioning this and questioning that and questioning my playing, and all this stuff. That's just how it all is."

-- Dion Jordan Suspended Four More Games --
Fri Sep 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports the Miami Dolphins announced DE Dion Jordan has been suspended again. This from an NFL spokesperson: "Per the terms of the Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances that took effect on Wednesday, the four-game suspension previously imposed on Dion Jordan of the Miami Dolphins has been lifted. "However, Jordan now has been suspended without pay for the next four games of the 2014 NFL season for violating the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse. He will be eligible to return to the Dolphins' active roster on Monday, October 20 following the team’s October 19 game against the Chicago Bears." So as a matter of fact, Jordan had two positive tests. The first was supposed to be wipe clean when the NFL, under its new drug policy implemented this week, issued amnesty in effect to players who tested positive for certain amphetemines prior to March 11. But Jordan was then popped for the second test and is thus suspended longer now. Not good. “I am currently undergoing treatment to address my situation," Jordan said in a statement. "I am working hard to become a better man and to make better choices in the future. I am especially looking forward to returning to the team. I also want to thank my family, coach Philbin and the Miami Dolphins organization for their support."

ESPN reports the Arizona Cardinals have placed LB John Abraham (concussion) on injured reserve, ending his season.

-- Charles Clay Watch --
Fri Sep 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins need to get back to maximizing the downfield receiving skills of TE Charles Clay, who is averaging 6.4 yards per reception (among the worst among starting tight ends) after averaging 14.6, 11.8 and 11 the past three seasons. Clay, in a contract year, said teams aren’t paying any more attention to him than last year. He has been bothered by a knee injury but doesn't use that as an excuse.

-- Dolphins Still Eyeing LaMichael James --
Fri Sep 19, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports there remains mutual interest between the Dolphins and free-agent RB LaMichael James, a 2012 second-round pick who requested his release from the 49ers last week because he wants a more substantial role. James is expected to take the weekend to consider his options. He worked out for the Dolphins on Tuesday. James has averaged 4.5 yards per attempt on just 41 NFL carries and ranked 10th in the NFL in punt return average in 2013, at 10.9

-- Jonathan Dwyer Done for the Season; Cardinals Sign One --
Thu Sep 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

fantasy football ESPN reports the Arizona Cardinals have placed RB Jonathan Dwyer on the reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season. NFL.com adds the Cardinals are evaluating Dwyer's mental health after suicide mentions in the police report. In addition, the team has signed free-agent RB Jalen Parmele.

-- Cardinals RB Watch --
Thu Sep 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports with RB Jonathan Dwyer deactivated Wednesday after he was arrested on domestic violence and assault charges, the Arizona Cardinals are left with two healthy running backs and an injured starter heading into Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Starting RB Andre Ellington (foot) missed Wednesday's practice as he continues to recover from a torn tendon in his left foot. He didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday last week before taking the field in a limited capacity Friday. Ellington ran for 91 yards on 15 carries Sunday against the New York Giants. "Hopefully we'll get something out of him [Thursday]," HC Bruce Arians said during his Wednesday news conference. "It's not quite as sore as it was last week. He's in the boot and we'll keep him that way. "Hopefully, tomorrow we'll get a little bIt more work than we've been getting the last couple of weeks and see some things. He may practice Thursday." Dwyer, who was Ellington's backup, had 31 yards on nine carries and a touchdown against the Giants. The two healthy running backs -- RB Stepfan Taylor and RB Robert Hughes -- have combined for two carries for four yards this season as Arizona's third and fourth options. Taylor's role will likely be increased, but he's a different back than Dwyer, who at 5-foot-11 and 229 pounds is two inches and 13 pounds heavier than Taylor. Hughes was praised all preseason for his ability to be a multifaceted back and Cardinals Arians raved about his pass-catching ability as a fullback.

-- Jerick McKinnon Set to See More Playing time This Week --
Thu Sep 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports Minnesota Vikings rookie RB Jerick McKinnon, a third-round pick last May, is 5-foot-9, 208-pounds and can be used in the running and the passing game. He had two rushing attempts for 7 yards and two catches for 5 yards last Sunday. He wasn't really part of the game plan and that was understandable. OC Norv Turner likely spent last week working the running portion of the plan around RB Adrian Peterson before the back was indicted on Thursday and had to leave the team. Peterson was then inactive against the Patriots. McKinnon is a fluid receiver and appears to have playmaking ability. He definitely should be more of a factor starting Sunday.

-- McCarthy Regrets Not Getting More Touches to Eddie Lacy --
Thu Sep 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Green Bay's first two opponents made a conscious effort to stop the run, using a single-high safety. There hasn't been much of a push up front. And as a result, RB Eddie Lacy is off to a slow start. The reigning rookie of the year has only 77 yards on 25 carries (3.1 avg.) with no touchdowns. McCarthy expressed regret for not getting Lacy more touches in the win over New York. With the Packers in a hole early, Lacy only had three first-half carries. "It's your job, for one, you have to do it or else somebody else is going to replace you," Lacy said. "It's just knowing yourself and knowing that every game isn't going to be a good game, a big game on the ground. You have to put yourself aside and do what you have to do for the team's sake. Even though we didn't run the ball a lot and get a lot of yards, we definitely did good in pass protection and got a win, so that's all that matters."

-- Davante Adams Earns More Playing Time --
Thu Sep 18, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports in a tight contest, the Packers weren't afraid to play rookie WR Davante Adams with superior athletic traits over the receiver with two more years of experience, WR Jarrett Boykin. "I thought Davante really stepped up," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. "You talk about a young man taking advantage of his opportunities, he made clutch catches, strong after the catch." McCarthy would not declare Adams the starter opposite WR Jordy Nelson. He said Adams "earned opportunities" and produced. OC Tom Clements noted that Adams had a strong week of practice up to the season opener, even though Adams played only nine snaps in that game. That effort continued and Adams was granted snaps against New York, finishing with five catches (on seven targets) for 50 yards. He had the key play on that 97-yard drive that started with his catch giving Green Bay breathing room, too.
