News: Carolina released DL Ronald Fields on Tuesday after six games with the team this season, according to ESPN. Fields had just seven total tackles, but recorded just one stop over his past two games.
Analysis: Fields signed with the Panthers in mid-September after playing the previous two seasons with Denver. The 30-year-old was never a reliable Fantasy contributor and has just one sack in his career. Keep him on waivers in all Fantasy IDP formats for now.
News: The Panthers have added a pair of veteran players, signing DT Ron Fields and OG Reggie Wells. The team will place LB Jon Beason on injured reserve, leaving the roster at 53. Fields has played in all 16 games in each of the last four seasons.
Analysis: Fields will get a chance to crack the rotation as a reserve once he gets acclimated with the system, but he is not expected to do much once he does. He has started 25 games during his six seasons in the NFL, including 16 with Denver in 2009. He has 134 tackles and one sack. He fits as a nose tackle, giving the Panthers some needed experience there. Fantasy owners should ignore him in IDP formats until further notice.
News: From The Sports Xchange: Defensive tackle Ronald Fields' arrest, first reported by Denver television station KDVR-TV's Josina Anderson, was for misdemeanor charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon. He was arrested after witnesses say they saw him flashing a gun. Fields could possibly face disciplinary action from the NFL.
Analysis: Fields is not expected to post enough stats to warrant Fantasy use. Punt on him in IDP leagues.
News: The Broncos continued retooling their defense Tuesday by signing unrestricted free agent tackle Ronald Fields to a two-year deal. Fields spent his first four NFL seasons in San Francisco, where new Broncos defensive coordinator Mike Nolan was head coach from 2005 until his firing midway through last season. Fields is the sixth projected starter signed in free agency by the Broncos.
Analysis: Fields should be comfortable playing for Nolan in Denver, but he's not expected to post enough stats to warrant Fantasy use. Punt on him in IDP leagues.
News:Kurt Warner had a big day that ended very badly for him and triumphantly for the embattled San Francisco 49ers. Warner was hit by Ronald Fields and fumbled in the Arizona end zone, and Tully Banta-Cain recovered for a touchdown and a wild 37-31 overtime victory over the Cardinals in Week 12. The 49ers defense was trumped for 552 total yards, including 456 passing yards by Warner. They did record four sacks and also picked off Warner twice.
Analysis: The sack and forced fumble were the first for Fields this season. He has just 12 tackles and doesn't rack up many stats as a defensive tackles. Despite the big game, he is not a recommended Fantasy option.
News: San Francisco DL Ronald Fields didn't even realize he had broken his arm during practice until a day later, when his season ended because of the injury. The 49ers put their starting defensive tackle on injured reserve Thursday, forcing yet another personnel change late in their surprisingly successful season.
Analysis: Fields has no Fantasy value at this time.
News: 49ers WR Taylor Jacobs is inactive for Sunday's game against Philadelphia. Also inactive are DB B.J. Tucker, RB Chris Hetherington, TE Delanie Walker, and DL Ronald Fields.
Analysis: None of these players have any Fantasy value at this time.
