FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Arthur Moats is hopeful to re-sign a deal with the Steelers. "I love this organization," said Moats. "Even though I was only here for one year, from top to bottom it’s been a great experience."

Moats worked just part-time for the Steelers last year, but managed four sacks and two forced fumbles to go along with his 23 tackles. It's going to be about money here, so if he really wants to stay, he's likely to have to take less money. Analysis: Howard Bender

Aaron Dobson is still recovering from a hamstring injury that ended his season. Trainer Brett Fischer said Dobson is doing well in his rehab.

After a solid rookie campaign, injuries limited Dobson to just four games in all of last season. He's got potential to be a solid downfield threat, but unless he stays healthy, he's going nowhere. Analysis: Howard Bender

Browns are trying to re-sign cornerback Buster Skrine, but they'll have plenty of competition when he hits the free agent market March 10.

The 25-year old was a beast in the secondary last year as he recorded 67 tackles and four interceptions for the the Browns while appearing in all 16 games. It's going to take some serious cash to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender

Defensive lineman Mitch Unrein said returning to Denver is what he wants most in his upcoming free agency period.

He's a back-up defensive lineman who found himself in a gimmick play that netted him a rare touchdown catch. Even that, however, gave him zero fantasy value. He'd like to stay because of how close the team is to the playoffs regularly and has already established himself as a solid back-up. He'll have to prove himself all over if he moves on. Analysis: Howard Bender

Free agent center Stefen Wisniewski is drawing interest from the Eagles.

Wisniewski was an All-Rookie left guard for the Raiders back in 2011 and then moved to center in 2012 where he has excelled tremendously despite the usual questions about the team's offensive line issues. He will draw plenty of interest on the free agent market. Analysis: Howard Bender

Paul Spicer was hired as the assistant DL coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Spicer spent the majority of his playing career with the Jaguars as well as all of his NFL coaching...well, assistant coaching. He'll stay in southern Florida and with the same duties but just with another team. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mike Wallace is unwilling to restructure his contract and would rather test free agency.

Wallace and Miami have had some issues off the field, punctuated with Wallace leaving their final game early. The Dolphins want to reduce his absurdly large contract, and he is refusing to do so. There's a chance that he leaves and sees what is available via free agency, and if he does so, it could leave the Dolphins scrambling to find a new number one receiver in the draft or on the free agency market. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Tom Compton has re-signed with the Redskins.

Compton started nine games last season after doing very little in 2012 and 2013. The 6th rounder in 2012 could fight for a starting job in 2015, but is more likely to have a back up role, though he could fill in for injured starters during the season, like he did in 2014. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Browns have agreed to terms with Josh McCown on a three-year deal.

While few fantasy owners even like McCown, they can't argue with the fact that he is a definite upgrade to both Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel. The Browns would love for Manziel to take a step forward and claim the starting job for himself, but they will go with McCown if they have to. Without Josh Gordon or any other legitimate receiving threat, however, McCown has very little value heading into the 2015 season. Analysis: Howard Bender

Two months after revealing that he would require surgery to repair a torn triceps, Reggie Wayne has undergone the procedure.

Why there was such a delay is not yet known, but it's obviously going to inhibit his offseason program with the team somewhat. He'll probably be questionable for spring OTAs but should easily be ready for training camp. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tampa Bay tried to shop Vincent Jackson before the trade deadline and, while they might still be open to dealing him, they haven't re-started that process yet, sources said. At this point it looks like he'll be back with the Bucs but Jackson has already said that he will not agree to a pay cut.

This has the potential to become quite the ugly situation. Jackson opened the season as the No. 1 target but was eventually supplanted late in the year by an emerging Mike Evans. He is still considered a top wideout, but the Bucs could make him a salary cap casualty if they go full-on rebuild and need to clear some cap space. Look for the Bucs to try and resolve this before the NFL Draft. Analysis: Howard Bender

According to a source, free-agent nose tackle B.J. Raji most likely will return for another season with the Packers.

Raji missed most of last year after undergoing surgery to repair a biceps tear. The recovery time was six to nine months and he's now five months in. The Packers would love to have him back and his injury last year likely hurts his value on the open market, so most just expect him to stay. Analysis: Howard Bender

Falcons have released Jonathan Massaquoi.

Considering his release only saves about $600K for the Falcons, this was more about the former 2012 fifth-round pick's lack of development. They were hoping he was going to turn into a strong pass-rusher but he's lacked that burst of speed through and around the line to help him get to the quarterback. He'll get picked up by someone and he'll have to re-establish himself all over again. Analysis: Howard Bender

Ravens have reached a two-year deal with DT Christo Bilukidi.

In his three-year career, Bilukidi has appeared in 22 games and has recorded a total of 16 tackles and one sack. As such, it should come as no surprise to hear that he has no value in any fantasy league (unless you get points for a player having 4 syllables in his last name). Analysis: Brad Costilo

The Bengals released defensive end Robert Geathers.

The Bengals decision to cut Geathers, who only tallied 21 tackles and 1 sack in 16 games during the 2014 season, is no major surprise. As he hasn't produced more than 3.5 Sacks in a season since his 10.5 sack 2006 season, Geathers has no real value in IDP fantasy leagues any more. Analysis: Brad Costilo
