Recommendation: WR4. Moore is an inconsistant fantasy performer.
8/8/13 – Eddie Lacy misses second practice in a row with hamstring injury.

8/8/13 – Jermichael Finley doing well in Packers camp.
Recommendation: TE1. Finley’s career has been marred by bad drops making him a bottom of the barrel fantasy starter this season.

Recommendation: TE1. Myers broke out last season and enters this season as a bottom of the barrel fantasy starter.
8/7/13 – Mike Vick leading the Eagles quarterback competition.
Recommendation: Do not draft. Vick is too injury prone to count on for consistent production.
8/7/13 – Johnathan Franklin emerging as Packers best receiving running back.
Recommendation: Do not draft. Franklin will probably won’t get enough touches to help fantasy teams.
8/7/13 – Trent Richardson will miss Browns preseason opener.
Recommendation: RB1. Richardson had an impressive rookie campaign in 2012. Make sure he’s healthy before you draft him.
8/7/13 – Danny Woodhead expected to miss Chargers preseason opener.
Recommendation: Do not draft. Woodhead is barely rosterable when he’s healthy and since he’s not, stay away.
8/7/13 – Ray Rice’s role might expand in Baltimore.
Recommendation: RB1. The Ravens are considering using Rice as a WR in some packages to replace the production lost when Dennis Pitta was injured.
8/7/13 – Vincent Brown expected to miss Chargers preseason opener.

Recommendation: RB3. Lacy has been outstanding for the Packers this preseason.
8/7/13 – Vincent Brown expected to start following Danario Alexander’s injury.
Recommendation: WR4. Because he missed all of last season Brown is an unknown commodity for fantasy owners.
8/7/13 – C.J. Spiller will be the focal point of Buffalo’s offense.
Recommendation: RB1. Spiller is a good choice in the mid first round of fantasy drafts.
8/6/13 – Chris Ivory expects to be full speed in a week.
Recommendation: Do not draft. Ivory is a risky pick because he’s injury prone.
8/6/13 – Mike Johnson out for season with leg injuries.
Recommendation: The Falcons O-line can’t afford this injury keep it in mind when drafting Matt Ryan.
8/6/13 – DeSean Jackson doing well in Eagles camp.

Recommendation: RB3. Richardson was successful in a part time role for the Rams last season.
8/6/13 – Danario Alexander out for the season with a torn ACL.
Recommendation: Do not draft. Malcolm Floyd and Vincent Brown will most likely start for the Chargers.

8/6/13 – Rashard Mendenhall returns to Cardinals camp.
Recommendation: RB3. Even though he’s healthy now Mendenhall’s health is still a concern because he missed most of last season with injuries.
8/6/13 – Jordy Nelson will miss 4-6 weeks following knee surgery.
Recommendation: Do not draft. Nelson is a beast when he’s healthy but he won’t be healthy to start the season.
8/6/13 – Michael Floyd listed ahead of Andre Roberts on Arizona’s depth chart.
Recommendation: WR4. Floyd caught 45 passes for 562 yards in his rookie season last year. He’s got sleeper potential as the Cardinals starter.
8/6/13 – Vincent Brown returns to Chargers practice.
Recommendation: WR4. It’s hard to know what to expect out of Brown because he missed all of last season with injury.
8/6/13 – Julio Jones to miss Falcons preseason opener.
Recommendation: WR1. If Jones is healthy he’s a bonafide stud.
8/6/13 – Mark Ingram showing out in Saints camp.
Recommendation: RB4. There’s a lot of competition for touches in the Saints backfield between Ingram, Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas.
8/6/13 – Eddie Lacy taking first team reps in Packers camp.
Recommendation: RB3. Lacy has a lot of room to rise before fantasy draft day.
8/5/13 – Marques Colston returns to Saints camp after foot injury.
