Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Stewart had a solid season last year, averaging 4.6 YPC, though he scored just three touchdowns in thirteen games. The 28-year old just 9 games over the past three seasons, and will not be able to handle the load of a workhorse back. The Panthers will likely find a running back in the draft that is capable of handling the other 8-10 carries that the Panthers expect. Considering that Stewart averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014, this won't destroy his already limited fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Free-agent G Ben Ijalana recently met with the Panthers.

The Panthers have been trying to rebuild their offensive line, signing Michael Ohr and claiming Jonathan Martin from the 49ers last week. They will try to get another offensive lineman in 25-year old Ijalana, a second rounder in 2011 who was a back up for the Jets last season. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Lance Briggs has a Monday visit scheduled with the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers can certainly use some linebacker depth, with both Patrick Willis and Chris Borland now gone. Expect the team to try and lock up Briggs's services during the meet-and-greet. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Sealver Siliga is still using a walking boot after undergoing offseason surgery.

Siliga is a depth player on the defensive line, playing in seven games for the Patriots in 2014, including the last four games of the regular season.  Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Packers are still interested in bringing free-agent FB John Kuhn back, but he isn't a top priority.

Kuhn picks up the occasional TD but should not be a top priority for fantasy football owners. He can be safely ignored except in the deepest of leagues. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jadeveon Clowney said his rehab is going well and he's walking without a limp.

He had a procedure on his knee in December, and the timetable is for him to be functional in nine months. The injury will undoubtedly push back his development to an extent, but if there are no set-backs, he could be a strong IDP presence in 2015 for the Texans. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Free-agent DT Letroy Guion recently met with the Seahawks.

He played in 16 games for Green Bay in 2014, racking up 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks. No contract yet for the free agent, but at just 27 years old, he will likely find a new home soon enough. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Chad Greenway has taken a pay cut that will give Minnesota more than $3 million in salary cap space.

A very nice gesture by the veteran linebacker. Now it's up to the Vikings to actually do something productive with the money. Analysis: Howard Bender

Keith Reaser says his knee is feeling great and he expects big things in 2015.

The 49ers drafted Reaser in the fifth round in 2014 after he tore his ACL in college. The 49ers will be counting on Reaser to help replace Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox, who both left via free agency. The San Francisco defense is likely sliding down draft boards due to injuries and retirements, but players like Reaser give the 49ers a chance to be quite good on defense again next season. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Russell Wilson is expected to participate in the Texas Rangers morning workout but is unlikely to play against the Padres.

This is noteworthy only insofar as Wilson could be at an increased risk of injury if he were to actually play in the game. In the end, this stunt serves no purpose other than to waste everybody's time. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Panthers claimed Jonathan Martin off waivers.

Martin, who was waived by the 49ers earlier this week, will likely end up as a back-up Tackle for the Panthers in 2015. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Panthers signed WR Jarrett Boykin to a one-year deal.

After a 49-catch, 681-yards with three touchdowns performance in 2013, Boykin failed to build on his momentum and lost the job as the Packers' No. 3 receiver to Davante Adams. He'll obviously sit behind Kelvin Benjamin on the depth chart but will be competing with the likes of Jerricho Cotchery and Philly Brown for a chance at the No. 2 spot. Of course, the Panthers could still bring someone else in, relegating all three of them to compete for the No. 3 spot. Analysis: Howard Bender

49ers waived CB Cameron Fuller.

Fuller was a depth play for the 49ers but saw absolutely no time on the defensive side of the ball. He'll try to pick up elsewhere in time for OTAs but he's not someone fantasy owners should be looking at in IDP leagues. Analysis: Howard Bender

Bears signed CB Alan Ball.

Ball appeared in seven games for the Jaguars last year and recorded 22 tackles with one interception. With Kyle Fuller and Tim Jennings already in place, it looks like Ball will compete with Demontre Hurst for the nickelback role.  Analysis: Howard Bender

Titans re-signed Brandon Harris to a one-year deal.

Harris worked as a reserve cornerback last year and saw most of his work on special teams. He'll fill a similar role this year unless he really impresses in amp and pushes for more playing time. Analysis: Howard Bender
