  • Tevin Coleman (shoulder) DNP Wednesday
    Tevin Coleman (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Coleman has another 11 days to get clearance for Super Bowl 54 following his dislocated shoulder. Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida will handle the load for the 49ers if Coleman doesn't get the green light. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:58 pm

  • Eli Manning to announce retirement on Friday
    Eli Manning announced his retirement from the NFL after 16 seasons.

    Advice: The 39-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP will reportedly hang up his cleats with a 117-117 record over 16 seasons with the Giants. He quietly walks away with the seventh-most passing yards (57,023) and passing touchdowns (366) in league history, somehow never missing a game due to injury. Though his play clearly tailed off in his waning seasons before inevitably passing the torch to No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones, Manning's perfect 38-yard rope to Mario Manningham in Super Bowl XLVI and, of course, his 32-yard strike to David Tyree's helmet in Super Bowl XLII will both live in perpetuity among February highlight reels. His two Super Bowl rings likely make him a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame despite conflicting opinions. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:55 pm

  • Matthew Slater wants to return to New England
    The Athletic's Jeff Howe reports WR Matthew Slater wants to continue playing for the Patriots.

    Advice: "I still love to play and want to continue to play," Slater noted just a short few weeks after initially discussing walking away altogether. "There are a lot of things up in the air that I don’t know, but I’m going to approach it as though I’m preparing to play next year." The Patriots' 34-year-old special teams captain was elected to his record-breaking eighth Pro Bowl selection this year and remains on record of wanting to finish his career in Foxborough.

  • Negotiations 'trudging along' with Hooper
    Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said contract negotiations with Austin Hooper are "trudging along."

    Advice: "The reality of right now is we are trudging along," Dimitroff said. "After the Super Bowl week, we'll continue to see how we're moving forward. At this point, there's no updates on Austin." The 25-year-old broke out for career-highs in catches (75), receiving yards (787), and touchdowns (6) last season despite being available in only 13 games. His pending contract is expected to average $8-$10 million annually, trumping all others' at his position among a class that includes Hunter Henry, Eric Ebron, and Tyler Eifert.

  • Dolphins 'fully expect' Fitzpatrick to return
    Dolphins GM Chris Grier said he "fully expects" Ryan Fitzpatrick to be back in 2020.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick would account for $8 million on Miami's books if he's on their roster in 2020 and it sounds as if the team has no interest in parting ways. The 37-year-old performed better than expected given the circumstances, posting four-year highs in passing yards (3,529), passing touchdowns (20), and rushing yards (243) behind the Fins' atrocious O-line play. With only one year left on his contract, the Dolphins are fully expected to draft a prospect and develop him behind the scenes (and behind Fitzpatrick) for a full season before thrusting him into the fire under center.

    Ravens RB Mark Ingram said his injured calf is "really good."

    Advice: "[I was] trying to be ready for divisional," Ingram said. "Felt good but we just weren’t able to pull it out." Ingram was clearly banged up in the team's Divisional Round loss to the Titans, logging a season-low seven touches on 28 snaps (29%) upon returning from the strained calf he suffered in Week 16. It sounds as if he'll be fully healthy for the team's offseason workouts beginning in April. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:25 pm

  • Saints have same outlook on Brees' contract
    Saints GM Mickey Loomis said the organization's view on bringing Drew Brees back is "no different than it's been the last few years."

    Advice: "It's easy to take him for granted yet I don't take him for granted," Loomis said. "Look, if any of us are surprised at what he does, then we're just not very smart." 41-year-old Brees finished with a league-high 74.3 percent completion rate last year, rebounding from a mid-season thumb injury to toss 24 touchdowns and seven picks over 11 games. New Orleans clearly sounds intent on letting Brees decide his own fate with the franchise, likely pinning him under center in the Superdome in 2020. He was also reportedly contacted by an unknown network to transition full-time into a television game analyst role. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:54 am

  • AB locks himself in his house to dodge police
    Antonio Brown has locked himself inside his own house in response to his Hollywood, Florida battery investigation.

    Advice: Brown is a suspect in a battery investigation involving a moving truck worker. His trainer has been taken into custody and charged with battery already, and the police are looking to speak with Brown to gather more information. That's been difficult. Public information officer Christian Lata told reporters that attempts to contact Brown have been unsuccessful because Brown has "locked himself in his house." Lata said the investigation is ongoing and more information will surface. This latest antic further increases the odds that Brown has already played his final NFL snap. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:46 am

    Larry Fitzgerald purchased a minority stake in the Phoenix Suns.

    Advice: Fitzgerald joins Aaron Rodgers as the only active NFL players to have part-ownership of an NBA franchise (Rodgers invested in the Milwaukee Bucks). It's an off-the-field endeavor for the veteran receiver, one that won't impact his play on Sundays. Fitzgerald is the type of player who will stick around the world of sports in his post-football life. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:14 am

    Titans signed QB Logan Woodside, DE Amani Bledsoe, RB Dalyn Dawkins, LB Nigel Harris, TE Parker Hesse, C Daniel Munyer, DB Kareem Orr, OG David Quessenberry, WR Trevion Thompson, and RB Shaun Wilson to reserve/future contracts.

    Advice: Woodside spent the year on the Titans' practice squad after giving his career a bit of a jolt in the defunct AAF with the San Antonio Commanders. Dawkins is the nephew of Brian Dawkins and had a small taste of the NFL at one point this year when Derrick Henry missed Week 16. Wilson appeared in five games for the Bucs in 2018.

The league is still investigating Brown for multiple allegations of misconduct from earlier this year. Brown's unending legal troubles continue to put his career in doubt.

  • C.J. Ham to be tendered by Vikings
    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune confirms the Vikings plan to tender restricted free agent C.J. Ham.

    Advice: The Pro Bowl alternate played a career high 35 percent of snaps this season. Only the 49ers ran more two-back formations than the Vikings. The loss of OC Kevin Stefanski to the Browns could be a hit to Ham's role, but he'll be back as Dalvin Cook's lead blocker in 2020. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:03 am

  • Edelman (shoulder) expected healthy for OTAs
    Julian Edelman (shoulder surgery) is expected to be ready for New England's offseason workouts.

    Advice: The procedure reportedly involves "not a lengthy rehab," pinning him back onto the field for the team's offseason activities in April. This work was much overdue for Edelman after he noticeably struggled down the stretch, totaling just 13/137 receiving on 23 targets over New England's last four games (postseason included). Nonetheless, Edelman played through all 16 games in '19, finishing with a career-high 1,117 receiving yards. He'll be back on fantasy radars as a high-end WR2 for PPR leagues in 2020.

    Bengals coach Zac Taylor said re-signing A.J. Green is "definitely" a priority.

    Advice: Taylor added that there will "have" to be contract negotiations this spring. 32 in July, Green has appeared in just nine games the past two years due to a lingering toe injury and offseason ankle surgery. He previously stated he wants to remain in Cincinnati as long as the two sides can come to an agreement, but the franchise tag is obviously in the cards as a fallback plan. Green's in store for a hefty payday even if he's unable to secure a reasonable guaranteed amount beyond 2020. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 am

  • Jarvis Landry (hip) avoids offseason surgery
    Jarvis Landry (hip) is not expected to undergo surgery this offseason.

    Advice: It's a sigh of relief from Cleveland's camp as hip surgery would've potentially sidelined Landry into Week 1 of the new league year. His agreement to participate in the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown is further acknowledgement the 27-year-old avoided the worst. The fact Landry tallied a career-high 1,174 receiving yards despite playing "75 to 80 percent" healthy in '19 only enhances his ceiling across from Odell Beckham in fantasy leagues for 2020.

    Odell Beckham underwent successful surgery to repair a core muscle injury.

    Advice: Beckham played through his core muscle injury throughout the year, inevitably finishing with his fewest catches (74), receiving yards (1,035), and touchdowns (4) since his reduced four-game 2017 campaign that ended with a gruesome fractured ankle. The Browns suggested his recovery timeline will be similar to Kareem Hunt's, who underwent sports hernia surgery in training camp and was clicking on all cylinders by the time his eight-game suspension had ended.

  • Rooney leaves JuJu's contract situation open
    Steelers owner Art Rooney said the organization will address JuJu Smith-Schuster's contract situation "when appropriate."

    Advice: "Well again, it was a tough season to evaluate with the different quarterbacks and some of JuJu’s injuries so it’s a tough season to evaluate from a lot of different standpoints," Rooney said. "Obviously we still think highly of JuJu and still think he’s going to be an outstanding player in the league moving forward and we will address the contract situation when it’s appropriate." The 23-year-old spent all but the first six quarters of his season catching passes from Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges, inevitably totaling career-lows across the board (42/552/3) in his first year without Antonio Brown. The organization typically negotiates extensions in the late winter or spring, but it's clearly not in Smith-Schuster's best interest to talk shop following his disappointing campaign. He'll undoubtedly engage in conversations later this year before hitting the open market following the final year of his contract. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:48 am

Raheem Mostert earned as much work as he can handle following his massive performance against Green Bay, but Coleman could perhaps be in line for a few touches.

  • 'A lot of buzz' about Rivers landing in Tampa
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports there's "a lot of buzz" about Tampa Bay being a possible landing spot for Philip Rivers.

    Advice: Rivers recently packed up his home in San Diego and moved cross country to Florida to be closer to his family (in Alabama). That doesn't necessarily make the Bucs his first choice, but the declining 38-year-old impending free agent will undoubtedly have fewer options than past years following his fewest touchdowns thrown (23) since 2007. Rivers isn't the worst one-year stopgap if Tampa Bay fails to iron out a deal with Jameis Winston. Tom Brady, Ryan Tannehill, Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater will also likely crop up at some point as potential fill-ins under center. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:32 am

  • Derrick Henry mum on upcoming free agency
    When asked about his upcoming contract negotiations, impending free agent Derrick Henry said, "I am sure it will get worked out."

    Advice: "Right now, we just lost a game. I am not even thinking about no contracts or things like that," said Henry in the aftermath of Sunday's season-ending loss to Kansas City. Coming off a season that saw him lead the league in rushing yards with 1,540, the former Heisman winner should be a coveted free agent, though the Titans have more than enough cap space ($60.15 million) to retain him on a lucrative long-term deal. The 26-year-old could command a deal similar to the market-setting six-year, $90-million windfall Ezekiel Elliott received from Dallas last summer. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:51 am

  • 49ers not ruling Coleman out for Super Bowl
    Speaking following Sunday's NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan refused to rule Tevin Coleman (shoulder) out for Super Bowl LIV.

    Advice: Coleman's injury was tough to watch on replay, but initial testing evidently returned good news. "I’m hoping he’ll be all right next week," Shanahan said. "I don’t totally know yet. I know he’s not ruled out or anything. I think there will be a good chance (for him to go)." Raheem Mostert was literally historically good in Coleman's absence vs. the Pack, but Coleman led the Niners' attack in the Divisional Round. The 49ers will do most of their install this week but will not be required to issue official injury reports until next week. DFS players will have to sit tight for the time being, though Mostert will obviously be the priority play even if Coleman is active. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:44 pm

  • Matt Breida touches ball once vs. Packers
    Matt Breida rushed once for two yards in the 49ers' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

    Advice: Breida was not targeted in the passing game. It was a disappointing stat line on an evening where Tevin Coleman was lost early to a shoulder injury. Raheem Mostert was simply rolling too hot for coach Kyle Shanahan to turn elsewhere. With Coleman all but certain to miss Super Bowl LIV against the Chiefs, Breida will certainly get more than one touch, but Mostert will have the first crack at establishing the fabled "hot hand."

  • Deebo Samuel totals 89 yards vs. Packers
    Deebo Samuel caught 2-of-3 targets for 46 yards in the 49ers' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers, adding two rushes for 43 additional yards.

    Advice: Samuel was the only Niners pass catcher to clear 20 yards receiving on a night where Jimmy Garoppolo attempted eight passes. The 49ers' ground game was just that good. That included Samuel, who contributed a 32-yard rush on an end-around. A true game-breaker, Samuel will be a potential X-factor for Super Bowl LIV against the Chiefs, though it is obviously tough to count on volume from any Niners wideout at this point.

    Emmanuel Sanders was held without a catch on one target in the 49ers' NFC Championship Game win over the Packers.

    Advice: With the 49ers absolutely pasting people on the ground, Sanders has been needed for only two grabs this postseason.

    Jace Sternberger caught 2-of-2 targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: Activated from injured reserve in Week 9, Sternberger caught zero regular season passes but emerged for three postseason grabs. His snaps increased down the stretch. Going on 24, Sternberger remains an intriguing catch-first tight end who will be a candidate for a much bigger role in 2020. Jimmy Graham is a possible, if not likely, cap casualty.

    Jake Kumerow posted a 23-yard reception on his lone target in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers.

    Advice: Soon-to-be 28-year-old Kumerow received only sporadic opportunities for the Packers' woefully undermanned receiver corps this season, turning them into 12/219/1. That does come out to a scintillating 18.3 yards per grab. A mediocre athlete already nearing 30 years of age, Kumerow is far from guaranteed of being re-signed as a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Primarily a run-blocking tight end, Pruitt totaled 6/90/1 receiving over 16 games in his fifth year in the league. Both he and Anthony Firkser enter the new league year as free agents, but either/both could be brought back behind Jonnu Smith pending Delanie Walker's status. Pruitt turns 28 in March.

  • Henry (19/69/1) contained in AFC Championship
    Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 69 yards and a score in Tennessee's AFC Championship loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Henry initially earned his opportunity with a ludicrous four-game stretch (87/585/7) to close ‘18 and leveraged that newfound role into 303/1,540/16 on the ground, including the league’s 2019 rushing title and 83/446/2 in three postseason games. While his nonexistent receiving-game usage (24 targets) and invisibility in negative game scripts hindered his weekly floor, the Titans need only take on $1.125 million in dead cap this offseason to shed Dion Lewis’ contract and gift Henry further opportunity in 2020. Henry himself enters the new league year as an unrestricted free agent, but one would imagine GM Jon Robinson allocates an Ezekiel Elliott/Todd Gurley-like annual amount for the 26-year-old bruiser. Recency bias aside, Henry projects as a first-round pick for early Best-Ball leagues prior to the draft. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:21 pm

    Tevin Coleman was carted from Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers with a shoulder injury and will not return.

    Advice: Coleman's arm got twisted awkwardly at the end of a red zone run. It had the looks of a serious issue. An upper-body carting could be anything from a separated shoulder to torn biceps. Coming off a scintillating Divisional Round appearance, Coleman had taken a backseat to Raheem Mostert before departing.

"What this means football-wise is to be determined but it was time for us to move back closer to home," Rivers said in a text message to ESPN Sunday morning. This could be a sign the long-time Charger is preparing to play elsewhere in 2020.

    Advice: In the words of Grammy-nominated recording artist Billie Eilish, duh. Henry has been a rockstar for the Titans, cruising to 588 rushing yards over his last three games while leading Tennessee to consecutive road upsets over the defending champion Patriots and top-seeded Ravens. The rushing champ and former Heisman winner could be retained on the franchise tag, though the Titans may opt to use the tag on quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is also headed for free agency.

  • Larry Fitzgerald will play for AZ in 2020
    Larry Fitzgerald will return for his 17th season.

    Advice: Fitzgerald easily could have walked into the sunset, but he has opted to sign a one-year, $11 million deal to extend his Hall of Fame career. The veteran reportedly really enjoyed the culture under coach Kliff Kingsbury and will continue to mentor the Cardinals' young receiving group. Fitzgerald was a near full-time player in 2019 but may begin to lose some snaps in 2020 if Arizona can get some of their young players to emerge.

  • Police sever ties with AB after outburst
    Carey Codd of CBS Miami reports police in Hollywood, Florida have "severed ties" with free agent WR Antonio Brown.

    Advice: Police were called to Brown's home Monday to investigate a "domestic disturbance." What followed was a vicious tirade from Brown, who blasted law enforcement with an expletive-laden outburst. To make matters worse, Brown, who recorded the encounter on social media, launched his verbal attack with his own children present. The former Steelers receiver has been an advocate of the Police Athletic League, donating both time and money to the organization, but will no longer have any affiliation with that group following Monday's meltdown. "These incidents have caused an irreparable rift between the Police Department and PAL and Mr. Brown," police spokesman Christian Lata wrote in a statement. "We will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization."

    Advice: His injury occurred in the first half of New England's Week 3 victory over the Jets. Edelman was also plagued by left knee tendonosis and a separated AC joint in his left shoulder. The latter two injuries will both require offseason surgery. Nonetheless, Edelman appeared in all 16 regular-season games, pacing the Patriots with a career-high 1,117 yards in 2019.

  • One network pursuing Brees as TV analyst
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports at least one network has contacted Drew Brees to see if he'd be interested in becoming a television game analyst.

    Advice: Per Schefter, that network was not ESPN. The soon-to-be 41-year-old (his birthday is Wednesday) has yet to make a decision about his playing future, though 2019 showed the future Hall of Famer still has plenty left in the tank. The Saints find themselves at somewhat of a crossroads with all three of their quarterbacks—Brees, Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill—headed for free agency this offseason. Ultimately we'd expect Brees back for another season in the Big Easy, though a broadcasting career could be in his future. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 10:31 am

  • Update: Edelman's court date set for April 13
    Updating an earlier report, Julian Edelman is scheduled to appear in court on April 13 following his Saturday arrest for vandalism in Beverly Hills.

    Advice: It wasn't immediately clear if Edelman would faces charges for Saturday's incident, though his court date would suggest that is indeed the case. Police allege Edelman, who was spotted with Paul Pierce and former Patriots teammate Danny Amendola earlier in the evening (Pierce posted a photo of the three on his Instagram account), hopped on top of a Mercedes, causing damage to the vehicle. Coming off a career-high in yards (1,117), the 33-year-old is reportedly slated for offseason knee surgery. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 8:47 am

  • Julian Edelman arrested for vandalism
    TMZ reports Julian Edelman was arrested for misdemeanor vandalism Saturday night in Beverly Hills.

    Advice: Police allege Edelman, who was believed to be under the influence of alcohol, jumped on the hood of a parked Mercedes around 9 PM local time, causing damage to the vehicle. The 33-year-old was cited and released later that night. The Los Angeles County D.A. is still weighing whether to charge him with a crime, though TMZ suggests Edelman may be able to avoid legal consequences if he agrees to simply pay for the damages. It's not a particularly good look for the long-tenured slot receiver, though this incident probably won't amount to much. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 7:33 am

  • Mark Ingram (6/22) limited in Divisional loss
    Mark Ingram rushed six times for 22 yards in Baltimore's shocking Divisional Round loss to the Titans.

    Advice: Joining one of the league's most run-heavy teams on a three-year, $15 million deal this offseason, Ingram's breakout as the overall RB11 should have been foreseeable. The 30-year-old inevitably finished 13th in rushing yards (1,018) as Baltimore's clear-cut lead runner, spiking 10 touchdowns (nine which occurred inside the 10-yard line) because of his fruitful goal-line role. Ingram ultimately wasn't used much in the receiving-game, totaling 26/247/5 ahead of Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, but that's only because Lamar Jackson refused to check down. With all 11 of Baltimore's starters expected to return, it's easy to project Ingram at the 2nd/3rd-round turns of fantasy drafts next year. Rotoworld.com Jan 11, 10:50 pm
