Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

Peterson has been suspended from the league since Nov. 18. Peterson pleaded no contest on Nov. 4 to misdemeanor reckless injury charges after injuring his son while disciplining him last May. In a letter from commissioner Roger Goodell, Peterson was informed that he is expected to fulfill his remaining obligations to the authorities in Minnesota and Texas, as well as the additional commitments Peterson made during his April 7 meeting with the commissioner, including participating in counseling. The NFL also said that any other violations of the personal conduct policy by Peterson would result in additional discipline, including possible suspension without pay or banishment from the NFL.

fantasy football 4/16/2015: By John Holler (Premium Fantasy Article) - When it comes to NFL war rooms, there are plenty of similarities.

Some organizations depend more heavily on their scouting departments that others. Some teams have a strong-minded veteran head coach has earned the right to make the big decisions.

-- DeMeco Ryans Rehab Update --
Fri Apr 17, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Philadelphia Eagles LB DeMeco Ryans tore his Achilles for the second time in his career last season, which isn’t the sort of thing that you like to do more than once but at least it gave him a comparison point for his current rehab. Ryans says that tearing his Achilles in the past gave him the confidence to know he’d make it back from this injury and added that his recovery is going better than it did in 2010. Ryans plans to take things slow for the rest of the offseason before making a full return when the Eagles open up training camp this summer. “My recovery is going really great,” Ryans said, via CSNPhilly.com. “I haven’t had any setbacks. Everything is right on schedule. I’ve been out on the field doing some running, put the cleats on last week, doing some position drills. I’m in the weight room lifting with guys, doing everything they’ve been doing. I feel really good with where I am right now in the recovery phase. With the OTAs and minicamps, I’ll ease my way back into those. I’m not going to rush it. But I’ll definitely be ready to go full go during training camp.”

-- Jameis Winston Sued in Civil Court; Buccaneers Unphased --
Fri Apr 17, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already said that yesterday’s civil suit filed against Florida State QB Jameis Winston would have no bearing on their decision at the top of the 2015 NFL Draft. So it stands to reason that Winston’s side has reason to be confident, if they weren’t already. The full statement from attorney David Cornwell was one which carried the swagger of the quarterback himself. “This stunt was expected,” Cornwell said in the statement. “[The accuser’s] false accusations have already been exposed and rejected six times. This time will be no different. Mr. Winston welcomes the opportunity to clear his name with the truth. “Mr. Winston is looking forward to the upcoming draft. He will not permit this ploy to distract him as he begins the journey of fulfilling his lifelong dream of being a championship quarterback in the National Football League.”

-- Dez Bryant Watch --
Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports an attorney representing Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has sent David Wells, the wide receiver's longtime adviser, a cease-and-desist letter to end their formal business relationship, Wells said. The letter, sent in late February by Jordan Siev, a New York City-based attorney for Reed Smith, also reiterated a prior termination of power of attorney by Bryant. Wells said he had used the power of attorney to handle some of Bryant's affairs the past few years. The dispute between Bryant and Wells is among the reasons the star receiver has yet to reach a long-term deal with the Cowboys. In March, the team placed the franchise tag on Bryant that will pay him nearly $13 million this season, but the receiver has yet to sign it. The Cowboys want Wells to remain closely involved with Bryant, whether it's providing security when he goes out to clubs or in handling some of his day-to-day responsibilities so the receiver can focus on football. When reached, Siev acknowledged the letter but declined any further comment. Bryant could not be reached for comment. The Cowboys declined to comment. Wells said the legal maneuvering did not faze him and he would not turn over any documents regarding any aspect of his relationship with Bryant, as the letters from Siev also requested. Wells says he has an adviser agreement with Bryant that runs through 2016, but would consider terminating the contract if Bryant's attorneys pay off the remaining amount he is owed.

-- Justin Houston Contract Watch --
Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports in February, the Kansas City Chiefs applied the franchise tag to LB Justin Houston, who piled up 22 sacks in 2014. The two sides negotiated (unsuccessfully) not long before the tag was imposed. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, no talks have happened since then. Owner Clark Hunt has said that the Chiefs eventually will get Houston signed to a long-term deal. They have until July 15 to do it, or they’ll have to wait until after the regular season finale to try again. In the interim, another team can sign Houston to an offer sheet, if that team is willing to give up a pair of first-round draft picks. That’s not expected to happen before the 2015 draft; however, the window for signing Houston to an offer sheet extends before the 2015 draft. Which means that an offer sheet from another team accepted by Houston and not matched by the Chiefs would result in Kansas City receiving 2016 and 2017 first-round picks as compensation.

-- Zach Mettenberger Organizing Workouts --
Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger is at the top of the depth chart and he’s acting like the starting quarterback by organizing workouts with the team’s skill position players ahead of next week’s start of the official offseason program. RB Dexter McCluster thinks it speaks well of Mettenberger that he’s taken that initiative and WR Kendall Wright said it shows Mettenberger is “stepping up” into the opportunity. “I do think Zach is more than capable, and he is ready for the challenge. There’s some stuff to him, a different kind of swag that he has. He has some stuff to him that I love about him. And I respect him a lot,” Wright said, via the Tennessean. “Right now Zach is the guy, and that is who I am rolling with until further notice. He is the quarterback until Ken Whisenhunt says otherwise.”

-- F-Jax Not Giving Up Starting Job Easy --
Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson, who started for most of last season and led the team with 141 carries for 525 yards, says he’s going to try to prove that he still deserves to be the primary ball carrier. “They want him (RB LeSean McCoy) to take the majority of the load,” Jackson told the Buffalo News. “But I’m not going to make it easy for him. I’m not going to just hand it to him and say, ‘Here’s the job.’” At 34, Jackson is the NFL’s oldest running back. But he hopes he’s not going to be phased out. “I don’t know what my role is going to be yet,” he said. “I’m going to push him. Every time I get a chance to touch the ball, I’m going to make every play that I can when I’m out there. So, hopefully, by me doing that, I’ll make him take his game to the next level.” The competition for the starting job in Buffalo won’t be much of a competition at all: McCoy is going to get the job. But Jackson viewing it as a competition will be good for both of them.

-- Dont'a Hightower Rehab Update --
Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the New England Patriots benefitted greatly from LB Dont’a Hightower’s decision to keep playing after he tore the labrum in his shoulder last season. Hightower was a consistently strong performer at linebacker for a defense that had already lost LB Jerod Mayo for the year and needed him to step into a larger role as a result. That strong work didn’t slack off after he was injured late in the regular season and culminated with a tackle on Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch that kept the Seahawks out of the end zone just before New England’s Super Bowl-sealing interception. All of that won’t make his recovery from surgery go any faster. Hightower got a timeline of 6-7 months when he had the operation in February and said this week that the schedule has held thus far. “Right now, I’m doing well. The doc likes everything he’s seen. I just had my checkup. I’m right on track, if not better,” Hightower said, via the Boston Herald. “I’m not sure what I’m going to be able to do as far as OTAs and training camp and all that other stuff goes. But I’m looking forward to being back.”

-- Antonio Gates Watch --
Thu Apr 16, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

SI.com reports on the cusp of his 13th season, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates has only one year remaining on his contract and is acutely aware of his expiring clock. He no longer attends voluntary workouts, nor has he done any route running this offseason. “With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season,” he says. “I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I’d like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That’s what my contribution is at anyway.” Gates has been thinking about his farewell moment since RB LaDainian Tomlinson, his former teammate and good friend, retired in 2012. This winter, C Nick Hardwick said goodbye after 11 seasons, forcing Gates to ponder how he’ll leave the game. Will he play it cool or will tears stream down his face when the Chargers hold a press conference to eulogize his career? “It could be one year for me, it could be four years, I don’t know,” he says. “I just wonder how I’ll handle it.”

I had 12 weeks to finish the season, and it felt to me like I had 12 rounds to go."
