I've been a fan of sports all my life. Football is always the most exciting time of year, and I am a lifelong Broncos fan. Playing fantasy sports over the last decade has broadened my knowledge to not just my home teams and players, but all teams throughout the league. At the start of any fantasy season, my one goal is total domination!

Jay Cutler Suffers Cracked Ribs

Lesley Tedeschi Oct 23rd 4:01 PM EDT.

After walking away with another win yesterday, the Dolphins starting quarterback was knocked out of the game. Jay Cutler was seen walking back to the locker room during the game and never returned. The initial fear was cracked ribs, and sure enough coach Adam Gase confirmed on Monday that Cutler has multiple broken ribs.

Cutler will not be ready to take the field for Thursday nights game against the Ravens. There is no exact timetable for his return, some reports are saying he is out 2-3 weeks. The Dolphins will look to Matt Moore to help the team secure another win.

After a gruesome Week 5 for wide receivers, Week 6 brings plenty of new pick ups to the table. The New York Giants will probably be the team with the most pick-up potential. With Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall out for the season, now is the time to grab a new receiver.

Jordan Reed Back to Practice

The Washington Redskins have their tight end Jordan Reed back on the practice field. Reed suffered a toe injury that has kept him sidelined for the last month.

Reed is a very important part of the Redskins offense, and is a favorite target for Kirk Cousins. Luckily after practicing last week, Reed felt good enough to be activated from the PUP on Sunday. The tight end is using wider shoes and said he is experiencing no discomfort.

Julio Jones Ready to Play

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 22nd 3:27 PM EDT.

The Atlanta Falcons are excited to start the season, and wide receiver Julio Jones can't wait to get back on the field. Jones underwent foot surgery during the offseason and is ready for some action. The wide receiver has proclaimed himself recovered and might see some playing time during Saturday night's game.

Coach Dan Quinn is open to the possibility of Jones having some reps during the third preseason game, but hasn't made anything official. The Falcons have had the luxury of letting Jones take as much time to recover as possible. Jones played through the bunion that was causing him trouble at the end of last season due to how well the team was doing.

Derek Carr Back to Work

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 22nd 3:15 PM EDT.

Derek Carr is back in action for the Raiders and everyone can't wait to see what he does this season. After suffering a broken right fibula last year, the Raiders' season was over. They were strong contenders to make a massive playoff run, after a strong 12-3 season with Carr at the helm.

Derek Carr showed poise, control, and domination on the field, just what the Raiders have been looking for. It was a huge disappointment to see him go down during the Christmas Eve game last year, even if you weren't a Raiders fan it was tough to watch. Carr is back in action and ready to get his team even further this season.

DeAndre Hopkins Still Out

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 21st 2:25 PM EDT.

The Houston Texans are once again without wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins injured his hand during the August 9th preseason opener and has not been on the field since.

There has been no indication that Hopkins will miss the start of the season. The Texans are able to be cautious and allow him to get as much recovery time as he needs during preseason. Being off the field before the start of the season isn't always great, but Hopkins is a veteran and should be able to get back on the field and contribute.

The ongoing battle for the starting quarterback job in Denver is almost over. The Broncos are scheduled to announce that Trevor Siemian will be their starting quarterback.

Siemian and Paxton Lynch have been the focus of the Broncos camp so far, and after Saturday night's preseason game the odds shifted towards Siemian. Last year Siemian beat out Lynch and Mark Sanchez for the job.

Ezekiel Elliott Draft Position

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 18th 4:25 PM EDT.

Serving a suspension in the NFL is tough for any player and Ezekiel Elliott is experiencing that right now. Elliott was served a six- game suspension for domestic violence charges from a year ago. As of now Elliott is trying to appeal the suspension, which can be a lengthy process.

What does this suspension mean for his fantasy value during the draft?
