FantasySP / ALL / Headlineshttps://www.fantasysp.comFantasySP / ALL / HeadlinesCopyright 2017<![CDATA[Julio Jones Ready to Play]]>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.

<![CDATA[Derek Carr Back to Work]]>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.

<![CDATA[The Case Against Mike Evans as 6th in ADP]]>Mike Evans is an elite talent and could get even better as his quarterback improves. His numbers last year proved he is among the best in the league. He was a top 3 fantasy wide receiver the entire first half of the season.

Evans success is largely dependent on his quarterback and is the reason why he should not be selected as a first round pick on draft day.

<![CDATA[DeAndre Hopkins Still Out]]>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.

<![CDATA[Broncos Quarterback Expected to be Trevor Siemian]]>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.

<![CDATA[Ezekiel Elliott Draft Position]]>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?

<![CDATA[Busting Common Myths Vol. 1: Tyreek Hill is Just a Gadget Player]]>One of my fondest childhood memories is watching the show MythBusters. On it, 5 expert scientists come together to test common myths such as the spinning bullet myth, the myth that falling on water from a significant height hurts worse than falling on concrete from the same height, and many others for truth.

In the spirit of this show, I am starting a series of pieces testing common fantasy football beliefs for accuracy. Remember, in this series, we don't just tell the myths, we put them to the test!

<![CDATA[Jordan Reed on PUP list, but likely just precautionary move]]>Fantasy owners and Washington Redskins fans know how important Jordan Reed is to their success. Evidently, so does Redskins management as they decided to put Reed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Reed has been suffering from a sprained toe which does not seem to be too serious. The move is apparently a precautionary one, according to the Post's source.

<![CDATA[Aroldis Chapman's disappointing season continues]]>The Yankees and fantasy owners had high hopes for Aroldis Chapman heading into the 2017 baseball season. He was projected by many to be a top 3 closer and hasn't come close to meeting those expectations.

He has been activated from the DL over a month ago and has only managed ONE save. Yes, you read that correctly, he has more blown saves (2) since coming off the DL than actual saves.
