    • T-Rich's suspension voids contract guarantees
      Former agent Joel Corry confirms Trent Richardson's suspension voids the guarantees on his $3.18M 2015 base salary.

      Advice: Richardson was suspended during the playoffs for conduct detrimental to the team. He'll likely file a grievance through the NFLPA, but if the suspension stands then the Colts can dump their inept running back without paying him the final year of his guaranteed rookie contract. It would be a tiny silver lining for the franchise, who gave the Browns a first-round pick to acquire Richardson early in the 2013 season. He's been outperformed badly by players named Boom Herron and Zurlon Tipton. Rotoworld.com

    • Corey Fuller wants to improve route-running
      Lions WR Corey Fuller said his offseason goal is to improve his route-running.

      Advice: Fuller, a former track star that is still raw as an NFL wideout, caught just 14 passes for 212 yard with one touchdown as an NFL sophomore. He's going to have to expand his route tree if he's going to separate from the likes of T.J. Jones, Ryan Broyles and Jeremy Ross. We're not expecting it to happen, leaving Fuller as a sub-package reserve once again in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Mark Ingram could be option for Cowboys
      Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website thinks Mark Ingram could be an option to replace fellow impending free agent DeMarco Murray.

      Advice: The chances of Murray re-signing with Dallas seem extremely long, as he should be following the cash. The Cowboys don't have the cash to line Murray's pockets. Ingram also won't be coming cheap, but he won't be as expensive as Murray. If Ingram lands in Dallas behind that offensive line and in OC Scott Linehan's scheme, he'd be flirting with RB1 numbers on a weekly basis. Ingram is likely to command $3-5 million per year on the open market after his breakout 2014. Rotoworld.com

According to beat writer Michael DiRocco, the Jaguars need Blackmon to apply for reinstatement "within the next five weeks." From the date Blackmon fills out the application, Roger Goodell would have 60 days to decide whether to reinstate him to the NFL. Rotoworld.com

    • Matthews could replace Cooper on outside
      Philly Mag's Sheil Kapadia says it makes a lot of sense for Jordan Matthews to replace Riley Cooper as an outside receiver in two-wide sets.

      Advice: Cooper was arguably the worst starting wideout in the NFL this season, but the Eagles will bring him back in 2015 thanks to a silly $22.5M contract they gave him last year. That doesn't mean Cooper's role won't change. Matthews, who was strictly a slot receiver as a rookie, would be a massive upgrade out wide and can still move inside in 3- and 4-wide formations. At 6'3/212 with 4.46 speed and a 10-foot broad jump, he has the measureables to make the transition even if separation was a concern on college tape. Rotoworld.com

The Chargers have him at a meager $510,000 base salary for 2015, so he'll be back to compete for a role behind Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd. Eddie Royal is a free agent. Rotoworld.com

    • Forsett: BAL to keep same run scheme
      Free agent Justin Forsett said he's heard the Ravens will keep some of the same run-game principles under new OC Marc Trestman.

      Advice: Trestman takes over for Gary Kubiak, who implemented the highly successful Shanahan zone scheme. It resulted in a breakout year for 29-year-old Forsett, who put up 235-1,266-8 on the ground. It's a no-brainer for Trestman to leave the system in place while adding his own personal touch to the pass game -- a scheme that typically results in high-reception totals for his running backs. Forsett would be a nice fit and shouldn't be too expensive for the Ravens to bring back. Rotoworld.com

      The Seahawks will be penalized 15 yards if Marshawn Lynch makes an obscene gesture during Sunday's Super Bowl.

      Advice: Lynch has been fined a total of $31,050 for grabbing his crotch following touchdown runs this season. But he hasn't been penalized yet because the officials allegedly didn't see it. We can be certain that if he does it Sunday he'll get flagged as this story has gone national -- which is why coach Pete Carroll said he will speak to Beast Mode about the grab. According to offshore sportsbook Bovada, Lynch is an incredible -200 favorite to score a touchdown against the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

    • Odell Beckham says his hammy never got right
      Odell Beckham said the hamstring injury that plagued him last summer never fully healed.

Then he put on one of the best displays by a rookie wideout ever, going 91-1,305-12 in just 12 games.

      Due to his latest suspension, Josh Gordon's contract will be tolled through the 2016 season, and he will only be eligible for restricted free agency in 2017.

      Advice: Just as Josh Gordon's Dynasty league owners get the worst news possible, Blackmon's get a ray of hope. The Jaguars hope to have an update on Blackmon's progress before May's draft, at which point they can begin planning for the 2015 season. Blackmon remains "suspended indefinitely," with no concrete date for potential reinstatement. At Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell's season-ending presser this past December, he said he'd "heard some good things" about Blackmon's recovery from substance abuse. Blackmon turned 25 two weeks ago.

      Profootballtalk's Mike Florio confirms Josh Gordon's one-year suspension stems from a failed test for alcohol, a substance Gordon was prohibited from consuming following his July 2014 DUI.

      Advice: Consuming alcohol seems minor to all of us, but it was explicitly banned for Gordon as part of his DUI treatment plan. As NFL Network's Ian Rapoport noted on Twitter, the NFL's substance abuse policy is "extremely strict and spelled out. He'll wait for 2016." Gordon will be 25 1/2 years old when the 2016 season kicks off. He led the NFL in receiving yards at age 22. Rotoworld.com

The Browns also suspended him for Week 17 following a violation of team rules. There were postseason rumors the Browns might try trading Gordon this offseason, but the latest ban effectively torpedoes his trade value. The Browns may outright release him shortly. Rotoworld.com

Lynch is owed $7 million in salary and bonuses and carries a cap charge of $8.5 million in 2015. That is a lot to pay a soon-to-be 29-year-old running back with a history of back spasms and a punishing running style. That said, Lynch is still one of the best backs in the league, and has been the heart of another Super Bowl run. It would be surprising if Lynch is let go this offseason. Rotoworld.com

He'll be 29 in April, is owed $7M in salary and bonuses, has increasingly become an off-field nuisance and Christine Michael is ready to pop. But Lynch has been the identity of a Super Bowl run once again, dominating other workhorse runners in yards after contact per attempt and consistently sparking his offense by punishing defenders. Beast Mode has the leverage now. Rotoworld.com

    • T-Rich says he's dealing with family issue
      Trent Richardson insists he missed Saturday's walk-through because of a family situation.

      Advice: Richardson, the Colts' No. 3 back throughout the playoffs, was not allowed to travel with the team after missing the walk-through. "I'm dealing with a very serious family emergency. I'm still at the hospital," he said Sunday. "I wouldn't purposely just miss walk-through." Richardson was a healthy scratch in the Divisional Round win at Denver. He's likely done in Indy even though his $3.2M contract for 2015 is guaranteed. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon LaFell held to 28 yards
      Brandon LaFell caught four passes for 28 yards in Sunday's AFC Championship Game win over the Colts.

      Advice: LaFell was third on the team with six targets. He dropped a bubble screen and couldn't break any tackles, snapping a four-game streak of at least 60 receiving yards. LaFell projects to see plenty of Richard Sherman in the Super Bowl, a matchup he will not win. Rotoworld.com

    • Hakeem Nicks wraps woeful 'prove it' year
      Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for 15 yards in Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

      Advice: Following an embarrassing zero-touchdown 2013 season as a starter for the Giants, Nicks signed with the Colts on a one-year "prove it" deal. He proved nothing except that he's done. Nicks caught just 38 passes for 405 yards with four touchdowns, losing snaps to raw rookie Donte Moncrief and showing no lower-body explosion. Now Nicks heads back into free agency with the same awful tape he had a year ago. Although he's just 27 years old, Nicks will find a cold market. Rotoworld.com

    • John Kuhn rushes twice in NFC title game
      John Kuhn rushed twice for three yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Seahawks.

      Advice: Kuhn added a three-yard reception. Kuhn's second rush was initially ruled a one-yard touchdown, but was reversed on review. Kuhn "vultured" only one score from Eddie Lacy this season, and offers as little fantasy value as ever. The 32-year-old fullback is headed to the open market. He'll most likely end up back in Green Bay. Rotoworld.com

    • Randall Cobb goes 7/62/1 vs. Seahawks
      Randall Cobb caught 7-of-10 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss.

      Advice: Cobb was no worse for the wear after spending some time in the hospital Saturday evening, routinely finding space over the middle of the field. He could have had a bigger day had Aaron Rodgers not missed what would have been a wide open 20-30 yard gainer. Cobb's score was the result of a "natural" pick play in the red zone. Cobb now heads to free agency, where he'll be a fascinating case. A slot man who missed 12 games through his first three NFL seasons, Cobb offers more playmaking ability than your standard Julian Edelman. He's a versatile talent who often lines up in the backfield. Cobb set new career highs across the board this season, catching 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. Teams will view his slight frame and departure from Aaron Rodgers as concerns, however. It's possible Cobb ends up back in Green Bay, but the Pack already have his heir apparent in Davante Adams. Rotoworld.com

    • Lynch puts SEA on his back in NFC title game
      Marshawn Lynch rushed 25 times for 157 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' NFC Championship Game victory, adding a 26-yard reception.

      Advice: With Russell Wilson staggered and struggling, Beast Mode put the team on his back, grinding out the kind of tough yards he's made his name on. Lynch's otherworldly leg drive was on display the entire second half as the 'Hawks worked their way back from a 16-0 halftime deficit. He should again be the focal point of the offense in Super Bowl XLIX. Every passing game makes it appear more and more dubious that Seattle will actually part ways with Lynch this offseason.

    • Brandon LaFell officially active versus Colts
      Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

      Advice: The Pats are without C Bryan Stork (knee), but otherwise healthy as they try to reach their sixth Super Bowl of the 21st century. Also inactive for the Pats are RB James White, WR Brian Tyms, WR Josh Boyce, DL Chris Jones, DE Zach Moore and OT Jordan Devey. Rotoworld.com

    • Randall Cobb spent 3 hours in hospital Sat.
      FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Randall Cobb (illness) spent three hours in the hospital Saturday night.

      Advice: Cobb is active and will play against the Seahawks, but he was feeling so ill that the team thought he may have had appendicitis. We wouldn't downgrade him much fantasy-wise. He'll run most of his routes against Seahawks SCB Jeremy Lane. Cobb has the most favorable matchup among Packers receivers. Rotoworld.com

    • Colts leave T-Rich home after missed practice
      Updating a previous item, Trent Richardson missed the Colts' Saturday morning walkthrough and wasn't allowed to travel with the team to New England.

      Advice: The Colts left him at home in Indianapolis instead of bringing him to New England for the AFC title game. He'll be inactive for the second consecutive game. It's not a good combination to suck at football and miss team meetings ahead of the biggest game of the season. T-Rich will get to watch the game from his couch like the rest of us. Zurlon Tipton will back up workhorse Boom Herron. Rotoworld.com

    • Trent Richardson doesn't make trip with Colts
      Trent Richardson did not travel with the team to New England due to "personal reasons."

      Advice: Richardson will miss Sunday's AFC Championship Game after being a healthy scratch last week. He's fallen behind Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton on the depth chart, and likely wouldn't have been active for special teams. Despite a fully guaranteed $3.2 million salary, Richardson is a candidate for offseason release. Rotoworld.com
