Player News
Kevin Williams leaves visit with Giants without contract
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:54 am ET) Free agent defensive tackle Kevin Williams left his visit with the Giants without a contract, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

"Had a good visit and gonna see what happens!" Williams said via text message.

The report says Williams, who arrived in New York on Monday night, has not ruled out playing what would be a 12th NFL season after spending the first 11 with the Vikings. The Giants were the first team to bring Williams in for a visit. 


Golden Tate loves role in his new offense
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:49 am ET) New Lions receiver Golden Tate thinks the offense he's going into this season will "fit better for me as a player than Seattle's did." Tate told the official team website that he's watched film on the Saints offense, which is what the playbook is based off of, and thinks of himself as a Lance Moore-type player with more explosion

As the website noted, Moore caught at least 50 passes and six scores in four of the five years he played at least 14 games with New Orleans. Both of those numbers should be attainable for Tate in Motown. 

Ultimately, Tate is excited about fitting his skills in with what's being asked of him. 

"Here we have our rules, initially, to learn the offense, but at the end of the day you have to play football," Tate said. "I think that's what I do best. Just finding ways to get open. Although a route is supposed to be at 15 yards, sometimes you're going to get pressed and your mental clock tells you to break it down to 12 (yards) and it'll time up correctly. I'm a mental clock kind of guy. In some instances it's going to be backyard football, find the hole and make a play, make a guy miss and go score with it. I see my game really fitting into this offense really well."

Tate has emerged into one of this year's hottest breakout candidates and a borderline No. 2 Fantasy receiver. Expect him to get taken between Rounds 5 and 7 depending on league size and scoring.

Chris Johnson leaves Jets without a deal
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:31 am ET) Free agent running back Chris Johnson visited the Jets on Tuesday but left without a deal. The rusher told reporters at a Brooklyn Nets basketball game Tuesday night that "everything went well" but that he's planning to visit other teams. As ESPN reported Tuesday, the Falcons, Bills and Dolphins are reportedly interested in signing Johnson. 

"I'm just taking it one day at a time, taking my time, and whatever decision I make, it will be the best decision," said Johnson.

The Jets reportedly hope to have a decision on Johnson before the draft. 


Bears waive defensive lineman Cheta Ozougwu
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Steelers land punter Adam Podlesh
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The Steelers have signed punter Adam Podlesh, who previously served with the Jaguars and Bears. He was released from the Bears in March, saving nearly $1.5 million. 

Podlesh ranked 29th last season with an average of 37.9 yards per punt. 


Texans sign Ricardo Mathews
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The Texans have signed defensive lineman Ricardo Mathews to a contract. Originally a seventh-round pick of the Colts, Mathews sparingly played last year. He'll compete for a roster spot in training camp. 

Falcons waive two players
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The Falcons waived tight end Adam Nissley and cornerback Saeed Lee on Tuesday. Neither player ever appeared in a regular-season NFL game. 

How Lloyd's signing impacts 49ers' receiving corps
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The 49ers signed Brandon Lloyd on Tuesday, which should impact Kassim Osgood and Jon Baldwin but not matter much to Quinton Patton, reports ESPN.

The 49ers are locked in with their top two receivers in Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, and Patton is expected to be No. 3 on the depth chart. After that, the 49ers are wide open, and Lloyd could be No. 4 ahead of Baldwin and Osgood.

The report says if Lloyd makes the team Baldwin will likely be out. The team re-signed Osgood this offseason because he is a huge part of the special teams. But the 49ers will likely not keep more than six receivers.

Patton, who finished the season strong in 2013 as a rookie, should have time to develop as the No. 3 option. The 49ers are also expected to take a wide receiver in the draft.


Josh McCown 'impressed' with Vincent Jackson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) New Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown started throwing with his No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson on Friday. McCown said he came away impressed.

McCown said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's worked with some top-notch receivers in his career -- Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery -- and Jackson is "right there with those guys."

"I'm very, very impressed with him," McCown said. "You know when you have one of those special guys. You can tell the first time you work with him, you see it and feel it. That was the case throwing with Vincent. You can see why he's been so good for so long because of his work ethic and his attention to detail."
