News: The Cardinals elevated WR Jaymar Johnson from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Tuesday and released FB Reagan Maui'a.
Analysis: Maui'a was mainly used as a blocking FB in Arizona and poses minimal Fantasy value going forward. Continue to ignore him in all formats.
News: The Cardinals announced on Friday that FB Reagan Maui'a was re-signed. He caught two passes last season for 20 yards and didn't log a single carry while starting four games for the team.
Analysis: Maui'a is a big blocking back for the Cardinals, wit just four career attempts in three NFL seasons. He is not expected to have an expanded role, so Fantasy owners should not consider him in any format on Draft Day.
News: The Cardinals re-signed FB Reagan Maui'a on Tuesday.
Analysis: Maui'a was part of last week's final cuts, but the team wasn't impressed with FB Jerome Johnson in the opener, so Maui'a got the call back. Continue to ignore him in Fantasy play.
News: The Cardinals have cut three players and claimed three off waivers, including veteran CB Brandon McDonald. The Cardinals released CB Marshay Green, FB Reagan Maui'a and LB Pago Togafau. They claimed off waivers McDonald, from Cleveland, outside LB Cyril Obiozor and FB Jerome Johnson. McDonald started 27 games over the last three seasons for Cleveland but was released by the Browns over the weekend. Obiozor was cut by Green Bay and Johnson was released by the New York Giants.
Analysis: None of these players will matter for Fantasy owners in 2010. Ignore them in all leagues this year.
News: The Cards waived CB Marshay Green, LB Pago Togafau and FB Regan Maui'a on Sunday while claiming FB/LB Jerome Johnson (Giants), DB Brandon McDonald (Browns) and LB Cyril Obiozor (Packers) off waivers.
Analysis: None of these players are expected to be much more than roster depth, so these transactions shouldn't impact Fantasy owners. Continue to ignore them.
News: The Cards waived injured FB Charles Ali (hamstring) and re-signed fullback FB Reagan Maui'a on Monday. Mauia rejoins the Cardinals after being released July 30.
Analysis: Neither of these players were or are expected to produce many stats in the first place. Keep them off of Fantasy rosters.
News: Free-agent fullback Reagan Maui'a has signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals. Financial terms of the agreement, announced Wednesday, were not disclosed. Maui'a started two games last season for the Cincinnati Bengals and was inactive for three others after being claimed on waivers from the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 3. He was a sixth-round draft pick of the Dolphins in 2007 out of Hawaii. Maui'a appeared in all 16 games as a rookie with Miami in 2007. he started nine games and had four carries for five yards.
Analysis: Maui'a won't produce enough stats to warrant Fantasy use. Keep him off of rosters.
News: The Bengals signed Dave Rayner on Saturday, giving them another kicker with Shayne Graham hampered by a sore groin. Graham didn't practice on Thursday or Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the New York Jets. The Bengals also waived fullback Reagan Maui'a, a second-year player from Hawaii to make room.
Analysis: Maui'a started nine games last season and carried four times for 5 yards. He also caught a pair of passes for 5 yards. He is not worth owning in Fantasy since he won't get a lot of stats.
News: The following Bengals did not record an offensive statistic in Week 3 at the Giants: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, RB Reagan Maui'a, WR Glenn Holt, TE B St. Louis and Andre Caldwell.
Analysis: None of the players on this list are going to be in line for considerable playing time anytime soon. Leave them on the waiver wire in all Fantasy leagues until further notice. They've got some depth chart climbing to do.
News: The Bengals put fullback Jeremi Johnson (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday and signed free-agent fullback Reagan Mauia.
Analysis: Mauia was released Saturday by the Dolphins, who decided to keep Boomer Grigsby as their fullback because he is a better receiver. Mauia started nine games last season and carried four times for 5 yards. He also caught a pair of passes for 5 yards. He is not worth adding in Fantasy since he won't get a lot of stats.
News: The Miami Herald reports that Dolphins FB Boomer Grigsby is currently ahead of Reagan Mauia in the battle for the starting fullback spot.
Analysis: Rarely are fullbacks any use in Fantasy play, and Grigsby is no exception to the rule. Both him and Mauia should be ignored in all leagues.
News: Dolphins RB Reagan Mauia spent 2007, his rookie year, as a blocking fullback for Miami. He appeared in 16 games with nine starts and had four carries for 5 yards and two catches for 5 yards.
Analysis: Mauia, who is best known for his video for running through a wall at a gym, will only be a blocker in the NFL and never a featured back. He has minimal Fantasy value and should not be drafted in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
News: Dolphins FB Regan Mauia, TE Aaron Halterman, WR Derek Hagan and backup QB John Beck all dressed for Miami's 28-7 loss to the Patriots in Week 16, but didn't record an offensive stat.
Analysis: None of these players are worth owning in even the deepest of Fantasy leagues. Miami hosts Cincinnati in Week 17.
News: Dolphins TE David Martin, TE Justin Peelle, RB Patrick Cobbs, RB Regan Mauia, TE Aaron Halterman and backup QB John Beck all dressed for Miami's 22-16 overtime victory against the Ravens in Week 15, but didn't record an offensive stat.
Analysis: None of these players are worth owning in non-keeper Fantasy leagues at this time. Leave them all alone in Week 16 against the Patriots.
News: Dolphins RB Patrick Cobbs, FB Regan Mauia, TE Aaron Halterman and WR Greg Camarillo all played in Miami's 38-17 loss to the Bills in Week 14, but did not record an offensive stat.
Analysis: None of these players have any Fantasy value heading into Week 15's game with the Ravens.
News: Dolphins FB Reagan Mauia ran one time for zero yards in a 40-13 loss to the Jets in Week 13.
Analysis: Mauia is a blocking FB who gets an occasional carry for Miami. He has no Fantasy value heading into Week 14's game at Buffalo.
News: Dolphins WR Derek Hagan, WR Greg Camarillo, RB Reagan Mauia, TE Aaron Halterman and QB Cleo Lemon didn't record statistics Week 12 at Pittsburgh.
Analysis: None of these players produces the kind of statistics needed to make them relevant in Fantasy -- not even Lemon, now that he backs up John Beck. Leave all on waivers for Week 13 against the Jets.
News: Dolphins FB Regan Mauia had one carry for zero yard in Miami's 13-10 loss to the Bills in Week 10.
Analysis: Mauia is merely a blocking back in Miami and isn't worthy of any Fantasy consideration at this point. The Dolphins play at Philadelphia in Week 11.
News: Dolphins RB Jesse Chatman, RB Patrick Cobbs, FB Regan Mauia and TE Justin Peelle all played in Miami's 41-31 loss to the Browns in Week 6 but didn't record an offensive stat.
Analysis: None of these guys have much Fantasy value at this time, although Chatman is worth a bench spot in deeper leagues as he would take over for Ronnie Brown should he get hurt. Peelle has two touchdowns this season, but isn't worth a shot at the TE position as he doesn't get targeted enough. Bench all these players in Week 7 when the Dolphins host the Patriots.
News: Dolphins RB Reagan Mauia had two carries for 5 yards and one catch for 5 yards Sunday against Oakland.
Analysis: Mauia is a fullback and has minimal Fantasy value. He should not be used in Week 5 at Houston.
News: Rookie RB Patrick Cobbs and FB Reagan Mauia made the Dolphins final roster. Mauia is expected to start at fullback for the team, while Cobbs will be an insurance policy behind Ronnie Brown and Jesse Chatman.
Analysis: Mauia isn't worth a look in Fantasy play and neither is Cobbs unless he stumbles upon regular playing time.
News: Aside from top picks WR Ted Ginn, QB John Beck and RB Lorenzo Booker, the Dolphins' 2007 draft class includes: Hawaii C Samson Satele, Utah DT Paul Soliai, Hawaii FB Reagan Mauia, Central Michigan C Drew Mormino, Syracuse LB Kelvin Smith, Michigan State P Brandon Fields and Colorado DE Abraham Wright.
Analysis: Outside of Ginn, Beck and Booker, none of the Dolphins draft picks are worth consideration in Fantasy play, IDP or otherwise. Smith and Mauia will be nice special-teams players while Soliai and Wright will provide D-line depth.
