FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Andre Johnson insisted Friday that he didn't join the Colts to get back at the Texans. He joined Indy because he believes the Andrew Luck-led Colts give him the best chance to win an NFL championship.

Even if there were a piece of Johnson that wanted to stick it to the Texans, is there any harm in that? He joins an immediate contender and puts himself in a great situation to return to the statistical glory he once had. If he gets to show up his former team twice a year while doing so, why not? Whatever motivates him to be a better player. Analysis: Howard Bender

Seahawks have waived long snapper Luke Ingram.

No news here, for as far as fantasy owners are concerned, Jimmy Hoffa and Tupac could be playing long snapper for any team in this league and they wouldn't give a rip.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jaron Brown (shoulder) said he hopes to be full speed (for OTAs) after a recent rehab session.

Brown isn't much in fantasy, as he is only the fourth receiver on the Cardinals depth chart and rarely posts offensive numbers. Most of his effectiveness is seen on special teams. Hopefully everything works out for him in his rehab though.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Steelers claimed Brandon Hartson off waivers.

Hartson will likely compete with Greg Warren for the Long Snapper's role with the Steelers in 2015. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Niners fullback Bruce Miller is not participating in the team’s offseason program after he was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor spousal battery last month.

After several players had widely-publicized domestic-abuse issues in the past few years, the NFL finally took a hard stand against the issue in 2014. If Miller is found guilty of spousal battery (or even if there is a strong-enough case against him), he is likely to face some type of suspension in the 2015 season. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Titans RB Dexter McCluster (knee) said he'll begin the offseason program Monday at 100 percent.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt has said that the Titans need to get McCluster more involved in the offense in 2015. Before having his 2014 season come to an end in week 15 when he suffered a knee injury, McCluster put up 131 yards on 40 carries and 197 yards on 26 catches. Analysis: Brad Costilo

GM Trent Baalke says Carlos Hyde is down into the mid 220-pound range, his lowest weight since early in college.

With the departure of Frank Gore, Hyde is expected to step into the starting Running Back role for the 49ers in 2015. Barring any injury or major change of situation prior to the start of the season, you can expect Hyde to be a second or third round picks in fantasy leagues this year. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Ravens sign exclusive rights free agent TE Phillip Supernaw.

Supernaw is coming off of a 2014 season in which the Ravens sent him to the Chiefs, only to get him back two games later. He is expected to provide Tight End depth again in 2015. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Joe Hawley (knee) started running about a month ago and expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Hawley played just four games last season for the Falcons as their starting center before suffering a season ending knee injury. He figures to play a major part in the Falcons offensive line this year if his knee holds up to the workload. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Free-agent DT Corey Wootton met with the Saints Wednesday, but he left without receiving a contract offer.

Wootton played a reserve role for the Vikings last season, appearing in all 16 games without a start while totaling 16 tackles and one sack. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Daryl Colledge is retiring from the NFL.

Colledge started 137 of his 141 career games since entering the league back in 2006. He spent the majority of his career with the Packers but also spent three seasons in Arizona before playing his final season with the Dolphins. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) is doing well in his rehab, but he's likely to miss training camp.

Hightower played through a torn labrum and was recently quoted as not regretting his decision as he helped lead a Patriots defense that won the Super Bowl. The former first round pick had a career year as his role expanded in 2014, totaling 89 tackle with a career best six sacks. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

DeMeco Ryans said his rehab from Achilles surgery is "going great" and said he will "definitely be back for the start of training camp."

Even though Ryans got injured midway through the 2014 season, the Eagles chose to give him an extension. Barring an unforeseen circumstance during training camp, Ryans should be a starter for Philadelphia next season. Analysis: David Kerr
