Andrew Luck Headshot

Andrew Luck underwent surgery on his troublesome shoulder following the season.

Owner Jim Irsay says Luck will be ready for the start of the season, but it's never a good sign when a quarterback has surgery on his throwing shoulder. This injury has lingered so the former first overall pick has elected to finally get this resolved. Fantasy owners need to follow Luck's progress all off-season, but this obviously knocks his fantasy value down a bit.

Perrish Cox Headshot

Seahawks signed CB Perrish Cox.

With corner DeShawn Shead tearing is ACL against the Falcons, the team decided to add some depth to the position. Perrish Cox is familiar with Pete Carroll's scheme, well somewhat, since he spent a month with the team a few seasons ago. He won't be viable in any IDP formats next season.

Brandon Marshall Headshot

Brandon Marshall said he will not take a pay cut.

There's little reason Marshall should take a pay cut, especially after the team refused to pay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during last offsesaon and while Fitzpatrick struggled mightily in 2016 the Jets should be willing to spend on a quarterback this offseason without having to take money away from their top receiver.

Blake Bortles Headshot

Jaguars hired Nathaniel Hackett as offensive coordinator.

Hackett has been the quarterbacks coach with the Jaguars for the past two seasons and he was elevated to the position of offensive coordinator today. It's no secret that Blake Bortles struggled mightily last year, so Hackett will immediately be tasked with working with the quarterback in order to improve his play in 2017. Hackett was previously the offensive coordinator in Buffalo for one season where the offense was anemic under the leadership of EJ Manuel.

Taylor Gabriel Headshot

Taylor Gabriel (foot) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Gabriel was held out of practice today due to an injured foot but it's more likely that he was just given a day off to rest and recuperate. The Falcons wideout suffered a foot injury late in the regular season which held him out of the team's Week 17 game but he isn't in any danger of missing the NFC Championship game on Sunday. The former Cleveland Brown caught 35 passes for 579 yards and six touchdowns for Atlanta this season.

James Starks Headshot

James Starks (concussion) doesn't practice Wednesday.

Starks hasn't played since Week 16 so it's not surprising to see him being rushed back. Ty Montgomery has done a fantastic job in the back-field giving Aaron Rodgers a perfect pass-catching back to be able to throw too. Look for Montgomery rather than Starks for the remainder of the playoffs.

Geronimo Allison Headshot

Geronimo Allison did not practice on Wednesday.

It was a rest day for Allison as there's nothing to worry about here. Allison is a top tier DFS punt play as he's taken Jordy Nelson's spot at wide-out. Look for another solid performance against a shaky Falcons defense.

Danny Amendola Headshot

Danny Amendola (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Just like Mitchell, Amendola was limited at practice on Wednesday. He's not a huge part of the Patriots offense so there's not much fantasy value here.

Malcolm Mitchell Headshot

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited on Wednesday.

Mitchell has been dealing with a knee injury that kept him out of the Patriots first playoff match-up. Though he's not fantasy relevant, he's another wide-out that Brady could be without against the Steelers.
