1.Dynasty | Eli Manning on the hot seat (Dynasty League Football) The Giants took their quarterback of the future in the form of Daniel Jones from Duke with the 6th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is a clear gut punch to Manning owners who were hoping to salvage some late career value as a backup quarterback on their dynasty teams. Manning will likely be the incumbent starter this year, but his leash will be very, very short now that the Giants have made their move and found their quarterback of the future. Despite the overwhelming disdain for him, Manning posted a good season last year with 4,299 passing yards and 21 touchdowns, while throwing just 11 interce... (More)14 minutes
2.Dynasty | Joe Flacco dodges a bullet (Dynasty League Football) The Denver Broncos traded the tenth overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Pittsburgh Steelers, passing on several quarterbacks. Analysis: The Steelers used the pick on Devin Bush, while the Broncos passed on both Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock with the tenth overall pick. For the moment, this is great news for incumbent starter Joe Flacco, who looks like he'll do more than just keep a seat warm for a hotshot rookie. Flacco is no better than a bye week fill-in and QB2, but that looks more like we can say for the likes of other veteran... (More)14 minutes
3.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill has recording handed over (Dynasty League Football) A recording allegedly incriminating Tyreek Hill for child abuse has been acquired by a TV Station in Kansas City. Analysis: Just when this story seemed to be on the shelf, word has leaked out that KCTV5 in Kansas City has acquired a potentially explosive recording of Hill taking responsibility for injuries to his girlfriend's son. If this proves to be credible, this could have major ramifications to Hill's career. The Chiefs have been somewhat inconsistent with their handling of players with off the field trouble (they cut Kareem Hun... (More)14 minutes
4.Recording incriminates Hill in abuse cas... (Rotoworld) CBS Kansas City has obtained audio allegedly recorded by Tyreek Hill's girlfriend that appears to incriminate him in the couple's child abuse case.3 hours
5.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids criminal charges (Dynasty League Football) The District Attorney of Johnson County, Kansas announced no charges will be filed in the criminal investigation of the Chiefs receiver, citing that "A crime has occurred," but stating there was no conclusive evidence as to who committed it. Analysis: It appears the Chiefs' star wide receiver will avoid legal charges. However, that does not mean the NFL will not still levy a suspension on Hill. The NFL has a precedent for suspending players that have not received criminal charges. Most notably players like Ezekiel Elliott, Adrian Peterson, and Ben Roethlisberger have been given suspensions f... (More)1 day
6.Tyreek Hill: Won't be charged (RotoWire) Johnson County (Kan.) District Attorney Steve Howe will not charge Hill or his fiance for domestic incidents involving their son, the Associated Press reports. Analysis: The investigation pored over the facts of two events from the first half of March at Hill's home in Overland Park, Kan. Howe's office "has reviewed all the evidence compiled ... and has declined to file charges" for alleged battery, according to Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports. While the probe didn't yield any criminal charges, there's still a chance the Chiefs and/or the NFL assess punishment for violations of the personal conduct policy. At the moment, though, neit...

7.Tyreek not charged; Lack of evidence cit... (Rotoworld) Tyreek Hill will not be charged after being investigated in two separate child abuse cases. Analysis: Johnson County DA Steve Howe said he believes a crime was committed when Hill's three-year-old son's arm was broken last month, but that he could not prove who did it. The boy's mother, Crystal Espinal, will also not be charged. "A child has been hurt," the DA said. "So, yes, as a father of three kids and a prosecutor, it’s frustrating you can’t do anything about it." In so many words, the DA seemed to be casting guilt without actually saying it. Hill and Espinal m... (More)1 day
8.Cameron Brate: Aiming for training camp (RotoWire) Brate (hip) likely will miss OTAs and June minicamp, but he expects to be cleared for the start of training camp, Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report reports. Analysis: In addition to providing a timeline for his return from January surgery, Brate revealed that he played the entire 2018 season -- all 16 games -- with a torn labrum in his hip. He suffered massive drop-offs for catches (30), receiving yards (289) and efficiency (5.9 yards per target), but he remained useful in the red zone with six scores on 12 chances. Brate's 20 touchdowns over the past three seasons are tied for second among tight ends, with Jameis Winston consistently ... (More)3 days
9.Packers plan to exercise Kenny Clark's o... (Rotoworld) The Packers plan to exercise NT Kenny Clark's fifth-year team option for 2020. Analysis: "He's a dominant player on the defensive front," GM Brian Gutekunst said Monday. The only negative for the No. 27 overall pick of the 2016 draft has been injury, as he suffered a high-ankle sprain in 2017 and had his 2018 cut short by an elbow issue. 2019 will be Clark's age-24 campaign.3 days
10.Cameron Brate cleared to run routes (Rotoworld) Cameron Brate (hip) has been cleared for football activities. Analysis: Brate had arthroscopic surgery in January. He was cleared to run routes at voluntary OTAs. Barring any setbacks, Brate should be full-go for June's minicamp.6 days
11.Report: Tyreek Hill’s son removed from h... (Rotoworld) The Kansas City Star reports Tyreek Hill's three-year-old son was "recently removed from the custody of Hill and the boy’s mother." Analysis: Per the Star, it "isn’t clear when the boy was removed, or who he is staying with now." The Star reports Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, have been "working through a family court process called a 'child in need of care' case." Two separate investigations into child abuse at Hill's home were opened across nine days in March. The second incident involved the alleged breaking of Hill's son's arm. Hill reported f...

12.Gettleman: Eli 'proved' he has 'plenty l... (Rotoworld) Speaking Thursday, Giants GM Dave Gettleman said that Eli Manning "proved" he had "plenty left" last season. Analysis: "We went into last year thinking that Eli had plenty left, and he proved it," was Gettleman's exact quote. We know are firmly into beating a dead horse territory here, but the level of sunk cost fallacy on display in East Rutherford is truly mind boggling. The Giants seem incapable of planning for a post-Manning future, instead continuing to further escalate their commitment. It is not rational behavior. Hopefully Gettleman walks different t...

13.Barkley, Engram voice support for Eli Ma... (Rotoworld) Both Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram voiced support for Eli Manning. Analysis: Barkley believes Manning still "can do it all," and Engram said he has the "utmost confidence" in his quarterback. "He’s our leader," Engram added. "He’s a champ." Teammates have at least publicly stood behind Manning this offseason, but that could change if Manning's long-term decline continues into the season, especially if there is a highly-drafted rookie waiting in the wings.7 days
14.Flacco has good 'familiarity' with offen... (Rotoworld) Joe Flacco said he has good "familiarity" with the Broncos' offense. Analysis: New OC Rich Scangarello worked under Kyle Shanahan who runs a similar offense to the one Gary Kubiak ran with Flacco in Baltimore. "Terminology-wise, I'm familiar with a lot," Flacco said. "That's kind of made the transition easy." Flacco did say there are some differences, specifically in the "dropback game," but the veteran should be able to quickly adjust to his new scheme.7 days
