NFL Around the League: A Little Less Terrible
Dom Murtha

Whitney Mercilus (hamstring) plans to be ready for the start of training camp.

We still have a ways to go before training camp, so Mercilus has plenty of time to be ready. The fifth year linebacker had his best season as a pro in 2015, with 52 total tackles, and a career high 12 sacks. Mercilus has been durable also, only missing one game in his career. He easily projects as the starting strongside linebacker for the Texans in 2016, and should be on your radar in deeper IDP leagues as JJ Watt and Jadeveon Clowney figure to get a lot of attention in the Texans front seven.

Broncos S Shiloh Keo pled guilty to misdemeanor DUI.

This is something that happened a week after he and his team won the Super Bowl. Let us rephrase; this is something that happened a week after his team won him a Super Bowl ring and he was just along for the ride. Keo made a minimal impact last year and will this year, too. If he even makes the team that is.

Bears have claimed Connor Shaw off waivers.

Shaw was just waived by the Browns earlier this week and will get another chance to make another team's roster. If it doesn't work out, Shaw will likely spend time with the Bears practice squad. He's of no fantasy relevance at all.

Darren Waller has been suspended four games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy

The Ravens sixth-round pick form the 2015 draft did something stupid, getting himself suspended for four games. Players clearly aren't learning that the NFL has cracked down on it's policy. Walker is an irrelevant fantasy option now and forever.

Whitney Mercilus plans to be ready for training camp.

Mercilus continues to nurse a hamstring strain, but it isn't expected to keep him out much longer. He should be ready for training camp and will look to build on his strong 2015 campaign where he recorded 52 tackles and 12 sacks.

Jalen Ramsey says he has no physical limitations now from knee surgery. He's more focused on getting mentally prepared for camp.

Ramsey was the Jaguars first round pick this year but suffered a knee injury during mini-camp that required surgery. Luckily for the Jags Ramsey will be ready for training camp and is expected to be one of their starting corners come Week 1.

Zach Zenner looks to be fully recovered from his rib and lung injuries.

Zenner was signed as an undrafted free-agent in 2015 by the Lions and appeared in six games, making one start and totaling 60 yards on 17 carries and 11 yards on two catches. He will add depth and play special teams for the Lions should he break camp on the roster.

Rams waived wide receiver J.J. Worton earlier this week.

Worton was arrested over the winter when he got into a bar fight in Boston which ultimately lead to his release from the Patriots. He was signed by the Rams back in May but it appears he won't make it to training camp with them after his release.

Seattle waived former Jaguars linebacker Khairi Fortt.

Fortt last played in 2014 for the Jaguars where he saw three games of action. There is no fantasy value here.
