It’s almost time sports fans.
- Roy Helu has locked up the backup running back position in Washington. An infinitely better receiver than Alfred Morris, he’ll be in on passing downs.
- Quarterback Blaine Gabbert will get the start in Jacksonville, it looks like. Gabbert has one more to prove himself long-term.
- Buffalo QB E.J. Manual had minor knee surgery which could keep him out of the first week but shouldn’t affect him long-term. Still draft him in dynasty leagues.
- After opening camp in a dead heat with Michael Vick, Nick Foles has been playing soft and all but lost the starting job. Foles is only a viable pick in dynasty leagues if you have Vick now.
- Jermichael Finley and Aaron Rodgers have developed good chemistry in Green Bay. Uh huh. Don’t get too excited about Finley until game time.
More drafts in the weeks ahead. Get excited!
