-- Shonn Greene Arrested; Playing Status in Doubt --
Sat Oct 25, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

fantasy football The Nashville Tennessean reports Titans RB Shonn Greene was arrested on Friday night on a handful of charges, the most serious a resisting stop charge stemming from him leaving the scene of an incident in Franklin, Tennessee. Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk. The incident began when Greene parked in a handicap parking space on the square in Franklin, located roughly 20 miles south of Nashville. When a parking enforcement officer approached Greene to issue a citation, police say he got in his 2012 BMW M6 and maneuvered to get around the parking enforcement officer's vehicle. According to police, Greene nearly struck the officer's vehicle, and sped off from the area. Greene was later approached when he got caught up in traffic, but sped off again, police say. Through an investigation, Franklin police determined Greene was the individual involved in the incident. Police got in touch with the Titans and arranged for Greene to turn himself in on Friday night around 9 p.m. He posted a $2,000 bond and was released at 10:38 p.m. Sergeant Charles Warner of the Franklin Police Department said the entire incident could have been avoided. "The entire situation could have been avoided if he would have left that handicap space for who it was intended for,'' Warner said. "The fact that he didn't and got caught being parked there, he could have stopped things from going any further than a parking ticket if he would have simply communicated with the parking enforcement officer and not taken such evasive measures to get away from her, increasing the seriousness of what would have been a simple parking ticket." Greene turned himself in after being informed there were warrants for his arrest, Warner said. His court date has been scheduled for November 13 in General Sessions at 1 p.m.

ESPN reports when asked about the division of carries for the St. Louis Rams on Monday, HC Jeff Fisher offered the following statement. “It’ll be a week-to-week thing," Fisher said. "Zac could get 25 carries this week. We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with ‘Mase.' It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done. He’s been a little banged up the last couple of weeks, but obviously he’s an outstanding runner as well. We clearly have significant depth there at the position.” The Rams want to play the hot hand, but all three RBs will get chances moving forward.

-- Browns Won't Force Football to Jordan Cameron, But... --
Sat Oct 25, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Beacon Journal reports Browns HC Mike Pettine would like to see TE Jordan Cameron, 26, become more involved without QB Brian Hoyer feeling pressured to target him. “If he’s open in the read and the ball gets thrown to him, he needs to catch it, but we’re not going to force a ball to somebody to try to reverse-engineer it — like if he gets more catches we’ll be successful,” Pettine said. “If teams are taking him away, then we have to go elsewhere. If he’s open and we get the ball to him, then that’s what we want. You hope over time that happens because he is an elite player at that position, but you don’t want to force it.” Cameron had just one catch for 5 yards on six targets this past weekend in a 24-6 loss to the previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars. During the second quarter, QB Brian Hoyer missed him wide open in the end zone with a high throw. “This is the NFL. You don’t get many opportunities,” Cameron said. “You get certain looks, and if you don’t capitalize on those looks, you’re not going to get it again. Defenses will adjust. The last game, if we would’ve hit that touchdown, it would’ve had a huge effect on the game. And it shows each play counts.”

-- Justin Hunter Developed Good Chemistry with Zach Mettenberger --
Fri Oct 24, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Nashville Tennessean reports Titans WR Justin Hunter appeared to develop a good chemistry with rookie QB Zach Mettenberger in the preseason, when the second-year pro caught 10 passes for a 21.7-yard average and two touchdowns. "Yeah, I felt like we had a good rhythm going, and in practice, too," Hunter said. "So I'm really interested to see how it will all turn out in a real game."

-- Tre Mason Likely to Get First Crack to Get Hot Hand --
Fri Oct 24, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports most likely, Rams rookie RB Tre Mason will be given every opportunity to develop a hot hand vs. the Chiefs after his eye-opening display against Seattle. He brings a speed element and a higher potential for the explosive play than RB Zac Stacy and RB Benny Cunningham. “(Mason) certainly played well last week,” Schottenheimer said. “Popped a couple big runs. Some of it is that they haven’t seen him. Now teams get a better idea of what he’s about. “I think there’s some things he needs to do, taking care of the football. Obviously that last play was a little scary, but wow, what a talented young man.” Mason said he was trying to “put the nail in the coffin” on his third-down run at the end of the Seattle game that ended with a fumble and wild scramble for the ball. As a result, he almost put the nail in the Rams’ coffin.

-- Fitzpatrick Knows He Needs to Get Andre Johnson More Involved --
Thu Oct 23, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNHouston.com reports WR Andre Johnson eventually got involved in Monday night’s game. It just took him three quarters. The best receiver in the franchise’s history finished the game with five catches for 77 yards in a 30-23 loss to the Steelers but had just one catch for four yards before the fourth quarter. “My job is to get the ball to our play-makers and I didn’t get it to Andre nearly enough early,” Texans starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said. “It’s just one of those deals, I’ve got to continue as I progress to continue to get better, continue to throw the ball to the right guy and making sure everybody is on the same page.” HC Bill O’Brien after the game said Johnson was open throughout the game. Fitzpatrick on Wednesday said the Steelers did some things to prevent him from getting Johnson the ball but admitted some of it was on him. Is there anything Johnson can do to help? “Just communication. That’s just something that we always try to do,” he said. “I think communication helps the team play better. It helps us execute better as an offense. (Ryan Fitzpatrick) has a tough job. He has to make sure everybody is lined up in the right place. The quarterback has a lot of things he has to do, too. Nobody’s perfect. I make mistakes also. You just have to communicate with him and let him know what you’re seeing and stuff like that. It will all work out.”

-- Lions Won't Be Doing Any Trading Before Deadline --
Thu Oct 23, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Detroit Lions official website reports you shouldn't expect any action from the Lions before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline. GM Martin Mayhew likes the makeup of this year’s team, especially with the prospect of injured players such as WR Calvin Johnson returning. Mayhew also thinks this year’s team is better than others in recent seasons because of the way the players have taken charge of their destiny. Mayhew dismissed any interest the Lions might have in making any trades, except for listening to some of the chatter. “We kind of talk to everybody around the league, getting calls from different teams and things like that,” Mayhew said Thursday afternoon in an interview session with the Detroit media. “I don’t anticipate us making any moves at the trade deadline.”

-- Sources: Jake Locker Benched for Zach Mettenberger --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

fantasy football The Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans plan to start rookie QB Zach Mettenberger against the Texans on Sunday, according to sources familiar with the situation. The move could also signal the beginning of the end for quarterback Jake Locker in Tennessee. The fourth-year pro has missed the last two games with a thumb injury and has struggled with injuries throughout his career. On Monday, HC Ken Whisenhunt said the plan was for Locker to regain his place in the starting lineup when healthy. But with the Titans having lost five of their last six games and facing steep odds to make the playoffs, the coach apparently had a change of heart. Whisenhunt could not be reached for comment Wednesday night. Indications are Mettenberger was informed of the decision Tuesday night. He was not in the locker room after practice Wednesday, when Locker was off-limits to the media. QB Charlie Whitehurst, who has three starts this season, said he was not allowed to talk to reporters.

-- Press Coverage is Hurting Keenan Allen --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Chargers WR Keenan Allen, while scoreless in seven games, hasn't lacked for impact. Defenses have schemed against him differently in year two, an anticipated trend that's presented opportunities elsewhere in the passing game. The effect for Allen is fewer statistical outbursts like the ones he had in Denver last season. Defensive coaches had months to game plan for him. Allen and the Chargers aren't surprised what came out of it. "People, they aren't stupid," wide receivers coach Fred Graves said. "They're not just going to let him run free. They're going to take some things away." Allen has seen more press coverage this year. That is partly why, despite a team-high 34 catches, he has a modest 354 yards. His average yards after the catch is down from 6 to 2.9. "They're pretty close to me after I catch the ball," Allen said.

-- Rams to Play Hot Hand at RB Moving Forward --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports when asked about the division of carries for the St. Louis Rams on Monday, HC Jeff Fisher offered the following statement. “It’ll be a week-to-week thing," Fisher said. "Zac could get 25 carries this week. We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with ‘Mase.' It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done. He’s been a little banged up the last couple of weeks, but obviously he’s an outstanding runner as well. We clearly have significant depth there at the position.” The Rams want to play the hot hand, but all three RBs will get chances moving forward.

-- Brandon Gibson Falls Behind Jarvis Landry on Depth Chart --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson, who has fallen behind Jarvis Landry on the depth chart, said no Dolphins coach has explained to him why he wasn’t active last Sunday and he’s reluctant to ask. “There’s no doubt I can play,” Gibson said. “I don’t think it’s a decision that has anything to do with me.... It was a decision that was made and there's nothing I can do.” Is there anything he can do to get back in the coach's good graces? "Nothing probably," he said. Asked if he has requested a trade or might, he said, “Not really.” Still, it was odd that WR Damian Williams (who didn’t play special teams in the game) was active Sunday. "It’s not really necessarily an indictment of Brandon, and Brandon I know is going to contribute here this season," HC Joe Philbin said. "I’m confident he will.”

-- Julio Jones Blames Himself for Falcons' Offensive Woes --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports the Atlanta Falcons' offense has sputtered with just one touchdown in each of the last two weeks. WR Julio Jones put the lack of offensive production squarely on his own shoulders. "It starts with me," he told NFL Network's NFL AM on Wednesday. "I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out there and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat. ... We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing, we have to fix that here." Jones' reiteration that he's dropped too many balls is true and it's admirable that he's shouldering the blame. But we'd point to an offensive line that was mediocre to start with and has been further decimated by injury as the biggest reason the offense has been uberly futile.

-- O'Brien: Ryan Fitzpatrick is Our QB --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports Houston Texans HC Bill O'Brien doesn't sound like a coach prepared to remove QB Ryan Fitzpatrick from under center any time soon. The first-year coach has been riding with the journeyman quarterback through a 3-4 record so far, but thinks his team's performance is not the reflection of one position playing poorly. "Fitzy is our quarterback," O'Brien told reporters on Tuesday. He added: "When you look at our tape ... you cannot just point to one position and say that's the position that is at fault. There are a lot of positions that need to play better. We need to coach better, all those different things. It all goes into why sometimes we stall offensively. It's not one guy."

-- Pouncy Brothers Won't be Charged --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The Miami Herald reports Dolphins C Mike Pouncey and Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey, accused over the summer of roughing up a club-goer at their South Beach birthday party, will not be charged in the altercation, Miami-Dade prosecutors announced Wednesday. A July 12 brawl left at Cameo nightclub left several people injured. But in their case close-out memo, the state attorney's office concluded there is insufficient credible evidence to charge Maurkice Pouncey — identified by victims as their assailant — or anyone else with battery. Here's why: "Victims and witnesses advised that the music was very loud and the club was very crowded with a lot of pushing and shoving by many people," prosecutors said. "The Cameo Club did provide our office with a video but it was of no probative value because the room was so crowded that we could not distinguish anyone including the alleged victims or subjects in the video. "In addition, we were provided with many different versions of the incident that raised serious and unresolved proof and credibility issues," the office continued. "Consequently, we cannot determine whether the injuries sustained by the alleged victims resulted from an intentional and unwanted touching or an unintentional touching resulting from the shoving and pushing of the crowd of people who were in a space too small to accommodate so many."

-- Jets Officially Extend Jeremy Kerley --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports a source who has seen the deal say that the new four-year contract signed by WR Jeremy Kerley with the New York Jets is worth $16 million with just $5.4 million guaranteed. The 5-foot-9 receiver is on pace for more than 90 targets again this season and has averaged more than 40 catches per year in each of his first three seasons.
