  • Maclin: 2016 was not up to my standards
    Jeremy Maclin admits his 2016 "wasn’t up to my standards."

    Advice: "I just … I didn’t play as well as I could have," Maclin said, admitting the obvious. "And by not playing well, I feel like I let my team down. And that’s the most important part of it." Maclin was slowed by a groin injury for much of the season. Still only 29, there's no reason Maclin can't physically bounce back, though Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill will be major stumbling blocks on the way to a 1,000-yard campaign. Maclin is best treated as a WR4/5 in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:37 pm

  • Bucs RB Jeremy McNichols signs rookie deal
    Bucs signed fifth-round RB Jeremy McNichols and third-round S Kendell Beckwith to four-year contracts.

    Advice: Recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum, McNichols is targeting training camp for his NFL practice debut. A third-down type, McNichols figures to spend his rookie season buried on the depth chart. He'll need to show well on special teams in training camp. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:39 pm

  • Rob Gronkowski agrees to restructured deal
    Rob Gronkowski has agreed to a restructured contract.

    Advice: Underpaid at $5.25 million, Gronk has cut a deal full of incentive-laden raises. At the highest level, Gronk's salary will more than double to $10.75 million if he plays 90 percent of the Patriots' snaps, catches 80 passes, goes for 1,200 yards or makes the All-Pro team. It's a compromise that gives Gronk a shot at a much-larger payday, but only if he's able to stay on the field and produce. It's unique for Gronk because he does not have to give anything up in exchange for the incentives. It does not appear to alter the final two years of Gronk's contract, which are currently set to pay him $8 million and $9 million, respectively. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:47 pm

  • Jets OC: We're going with committee backfield
    Speaking Tuesday, Jets OC John Morton said he's planning to use a backfield-by-committee in 2017.

    Advice: Morton said it will vary week to week whether Bilal Powell or Matt Forte takes the lead. Morton is mostly just confirming the obvious, but it's our strong suspicion that Powell will lead in touches more often than not. He was the far more dynamic player in 2016, making plays on all three downs. Now 31, Forte has lost a step or three. It could be a frustrating situation, but Powell is definitely the preferred own.

  • C.J. Prosise will have 'big role' if healthy?
    ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes sophomore C.J. Prosise will "have a big role" if he can stay healthy.

    Advice: Kapadia wrote Prosise "will be featured in the passing game" and used "as a change-up" for Eddie Lacy, but it all depends on him staying on the field. Limited by injuries all offseason and knocked out by a shoulder injury late in the year, Prosise was only able to play in six games as a rookie. Of course, he was dynamic when on the field, averaging over eight yards per touch, and that type of playmaking ability will keep him on the fantasy radar in PPR formats even with Lacy operating as the lead back.
