• 'No chance' Bucs retain Doug Martin for 2018
    The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud believes there's "no chance" the Bucs keep Doug Martin for 2018.

    Advice: Martin just turned 29 four days ago and has three years left on his contract. But as a result of his drug-induced suspension at the end of the 2016 season, the guarantees in his contract were wiped away. The Bucs decided to keep him around in 2017, but Martin proved to be a waste of $7 million for Tampa Bay, averaging a pitiful 2.9 YPC for the second straight season. He has two 1,400-yard rushing seasons to go with four sub-500-yard years and is a non-factor in the pass game. Martin's sure release will save the Bucs $6.75 million against the 2018 cap.

  • Brees says he won't test free agent market
    Impending free agent Drew Brees says he has no plans to test the market, and that he hopes to re-sign with the Saints before the start of the new league year.

    Advice: "I'm not in the mood to make anything secretive," Brees said. "It's the same way I felt two days ago. It's the same way I felt 12 years ago. That is that I'll be here as long as they'll have me, hopefully." Brees, who turned 39 on Monday, cannot be franchise tagged, giving him a little leverage even if he insists he doesn't want to test the market. Brees' main goal could be some guaranteed money for 2019. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:15 pm

  • GM thinks Mariota will 'adapt' to new coach
    Titans GM Jon Robinson has "zero concern" about Marcus Mariota playing for his third head coach since entering the league in 2015.

    Advice: "Marcus is a pretty resilient guy. He’s a very mentally tough guy," Robinson said. "I have zero concern in Marcus being able to adapt and learn, and do what’s best to get the offense going." Yet another coaching change is a concern for Mariota's development, but having him play another year with a coaching staff he regressed under in 2017 was a bigger worry. Assuming Robinson finds the right coach, this move should be good for Mariota's future. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:15 am

  • Fleener 'unlikely' to return on current deal
    ESPN's Mike Triplett believes it is "highly unlikely" Coby Fleener returns to the Saints on his current deal.

    Advice: Coming off a season in which he caught just 22 passes in 11 games, Fleener is set to count $8 million against the cap with a $6.3 million salary. There is almost no chance he sticks around at those numbers, and while a pay cut is possible, it is more likely the Saints cut him outright. Doing so would save $3.2 million against the cap.

  • Licht: Doug Martin 'wasn't ever the same'
    Bucs GM Jason Licht said Doug Martin "wasn't ever the same" after returning from suspension.

    Advice: Martin looked great in his first game back, rushing for 74 yards and a score on just 13 carries against the Patriots, but it was all downhill from there. He was disciplined for a team-rules violation in Week 13, and he watched Peyton Barber jump him on the depth chart. The Bucs can wipe all of Martin's $6.75 million salary off the cap by cutting him.

"I would have loved the opportunity to go up there and get them a win, more than one win." While he was specifically talking about the Browns, it is pretty clear McCarron is just tired of being a backup. Whether he is deemed a restricted or unrestricted free agent at a hearing on February 15, McCarron will likely do everything he can to get out of Cincinnati this offseason.

  • Martavis Bryant wants to remain with Steelers
    Martavis Bryant says he wants to remain with the Steelers for 2018.

    Advice: 2017 should have been the final year of Bryant's rookie contract, but it tolled to 2018 after he was suspended for all of 2016. Frustrated with his role, Bryant tried to force his way out of Pittsburgh ahead of the trade deadline, earning himself a team-imposed Week 8 suspension. He returned following the Steelers' Week 9 bye and settled into a steady role down the stretch, catching 50 passes for 603 yards and three touchdowns on the year. The Steelers could be open to moving Bryant this offseason, but he's an extreme bargain at his $705,000 salary. The most likely scenario is Bryant playing out his Steelers deal.

Even though it is unlikely he will be 100 percent by the time free agency opens on March 14, this injury should not seriously damage his market.

It would be surprising for him to say anything else, but the reality is Murray took a step back in his age-29 season even before being sidelined by a knee injury late in the year.

  • Brees slings three TDs in heart-breaking loss
    Drew Brees completed 25-of-40 passes for 294 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while adding one yard on two carries Sunday in the Saints’ Divisional Round loss to the Vikings.

    Advice: Brees was sacked twice for a loss of 16 yards. The soon-to-be 39-year-old (his birthday is Monday) got off to a dreadful start, hurling a pair of first-half interceptions. Brees misfired on a pass intended for Ted Ginn on his first pick while the second interception came on a play where Everson Griffen tipped the ball at the line of scrimmage. Brees flipped the script after halftime, distributing three touchdown passes including two to second-year stud Michael Thomas. His 14-yard strike to Alvin Kamara gave New Orleans its first lead with 3:01 remaining, though the Saints would later lose on a walk-off touchdown by Stefon Diggs. Brees' counting stats were down this year as the Saints put a greater emphasis on running the ball, but he still led the league in completion percentage and was second behind Alex Smith in quarterback rating. The future Hall of Famer is headed for free agency, but should be back for a 13th season in New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:41 pm

  • Martavis Bryant goes for 2/78/1 against Jags
    Martavis Bryant caught 2-of-4 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Divisional Round loss to the Jaguars.

    Advice: Not heard from for nearly two full quarters, Bryant breathed life into the Steelers’ offense with a 36-yard touchdown catch late in the first half. Bryant’s other reception went for 42 in what amounted to fourth-quarter garbage time. After missing all of the 2016 season on a substance-abuse suspension, Bryant was an inconsistent 2017 contributor with a 50/603/3 receiving line, averaging a career-low 12.1 yards per catch. Still only 26 years old, Bryant will return as the Steelers' No. 3 receiver and situational deep threat in 2018. He'll be a high-volatility middle-round pick in fantasy drafts.

    Le'Veon Bell rushed 16 times for 67 yards and a touchdown and caught 9-of-13 targets for 88 yards and an additional touchdown in the Steelers' Divisional Round loss to the Jaguars.

    Advice: The Steelers oddly did not feature Le'Veon from the outset, opening the game in empty-spread formations and trying to throw the ball around the yard. It wasn't until Bell emerged as Pittsburgh's offensive focal point that they began scoring points. Bell ripped repeated chunk-yardage gains on the ground and in the air, and beat Jags WLB Telvin Smith for a 19-yard receiving score in the third quarter. Bell hit pay dirt a second time on a lateral from Ben Roethlisberger, which went in the books as a rushing TD. In 2017, Bell set career highs in carries (321) and rushing scores (9). An impending free agent, Bell is expected to receive another franchise tag in February. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:47 pm

    Leonard Fournette rushed 25 times for 109 yards and three touchdowns and caught 2-of-4 targets for ten yards in the Jaguars' Divisional Round upset win over the Steelers, 45-42.

    Advice: Fournette got Jacksonville on the board first with a leaping goal-line score on fourth down to cap an eight-play opening drive. He put the Jags up 14-0 on an explosive sideline run to the house from 18 yards out. Fournette badly tweaked his long-troublesome ankle at the end of a ten-yard reception early in the second frame, only to return on the Jags’ first second-half drive, presumably after a painkilling injection. Although Fournette’s efficiency dipped in the final two quarters, he helped seal the win with a third touchdown on a goal-line score following Keelan Cole’s 45-yard bomb.

He put the Jags up 14-0 on an explosive sideline run to the house from 18 yards out. Fournette badly tweaked his long-troublesome ankle at the end of a 10-yard reception in the second frame, however, and he could put almost no weight on the limb en route to the locker room.

  • Mariota played through sprained quad Saturday
    Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Marcus Mariota sprained his quad in the first quarter of Saturday's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: Mularkey said the injury forced the Titans to alter their offense. It's not a surprising revelation as Mariota didn't show his usual mobility on Saturday (though he did rush for a team-leading 37 yards) and was sacked a remarkable eight times against a New England defense not known for its pass rush. Injuries hampered Mariota throughout 2017, leading to his worst season statistically.

  • Steelers expected to franchise Bell again
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers are expected to assign the franchise tag to Le'Veon Bell this offseason.

    Advice: This comes days after Bell threatened to retire if franchise-tagged for the second straight year. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table," said Bell, who waited until September 4 to sign his $12.1 million franchise tender this past season. "I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at." The 25-year-old previously turned down a two-year deal worth $30 million. Despite his resistance, Rapoport notes the Steelers rarely budge on contract demands, making it unlikely Bell would win a stare-down with Pittsburgh's front office. The franchise tag for running backs in 2018 carries a $14.5 million salary. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:21 am

  • Mariota takes 8 sacks as Patriots roll Titans
    Marcus Mariota completed 22-of-37 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns and rushed four times for 37 yards in the Titans' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: Mariota started the scoring by firing a 15-yard first-quarter touchdown to Corey Davis, who made a sensational one-handed catch behind Malcolm Butler. Unfortunately for the Titans, the Patriots went on to score 28 unanswered points while Tennessee’s offense circled the drain, flopping in pass protection and getting nothing from its running game. Mariota did throw a second score to Davis in garbage time, but he took eight sacks and couldn't move the offense consistently. Mariota struggled with injuries during a 2017 campaign where his play sharply regressed, managing a 13:15 TD-to-INT ratio in a discombobulated offense. Mariota will have to overcome Mike Mularkey and OC Terry Robiskie’s self-defeating schemes to become a bounce-back pick in 2018 fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:54 pm

  • 'Decent chance' Murray done with the Titans
    ESPN's Cameron Wolfe believes there's a "decent chance" DeMarco Murray has played his final snap in a Titans uniform.

    Advice: Already ruled out for the Divisional Round, Murray, who has a torn MCL, would be a long-shot for the AFC Championship Game even if the Titans sprang a seismic upset on Saturday night. One month shy of his 30th birthday, Murray slumped to a career-worst 3.58 yards per carry as he played injured in 2017. 23-year-old sophomore Derrick Henry has looked more than capable of taking over the Titans' workhorse role.

The Jags won't have much of a chance against the Steelers in the Divisional Round if they can't get some big runs from their rookie back. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 2:29 pm
