Fantasy Player Updates & News  PLAY $5M NFL Sunday Million!

New York Jets have enough flexibility under the cap to be active players in free agency. As of Feb. 3, they had an estimated $20.044 million in cap space, according to That doesn't include tenders for restricted free agents and, obviously, the draft. This is a rough estimate, but the Jets' rookie pool figures to be anywhere from $5 million to $6 million; it could fluctuate, depending upon how many compensatory picks they receive.  The $20 million in cap space is a bit deceiving because it will grow as soon as they start releasing players. They will pick up $8.25 million when they release wide receiver Santonio Holmes. That alone could cover the draft and one free-agent signing. They will create another $9.5 million if they release cornerback Antonio Cromartie, a likely cap casualty.  They don't have to make an immediate move on quarterback Mark Sanchez, whose $2 million roster bonus isn't due until March 25. If they part ways with their former starter, the Jets will gain another $8.3 million in cap room if he's not designated as a "June 1" cut.  By dropping Sanchez, Cromartie and Holmes, the Jets would clear a total of $26 million, putting them more than $40 million under the cap.

Vontae Davis was spotted wearing a walking boot on Monday.

The actual cause for his wearing the boot is still unknown but it's generally not a good sign to see the top cover corner for your team in a boot. Davis' injury also comes a bad week given that it's a short turnaround for Indy as they head to Houston for Thursday Night Football. When he missed time during the Monday night game against the Jets Week 2, Brandon Marshall shredded his replacement which could mean a decent bump in DeAndre Hopkins looks. Analysis: Matt Selz

Coach Dan Quinn said he's hopeful to have Tevin Coleman (rib) back to practice Wednesday.

When the injury news suffered about Coleman and his cracked rib the timeline for his return was set at two weeks and then go off pain tolerance at that point. If he is ready to go for Week 5 then he certainly could be worth a flex play given the way Atlanta's offense has been rolling of late and that while Devonta Freeman posted insane numbers the last two weeks, he did most of his damage in the passing game and Terron Ward produced on the ground. Analysis: Matt Selz

Charlotte's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will need shoulder surgery and be sidelined six months.

Coming off a season in which he posted career highs in minutes, points, and rebounds per game this is a big blow for a Carolina squad that was looking to make a run in the Eastern Conference. The six month time frame puts him on a pace to potentially return in time for the last month of the season. In his place Charlotte will look to fill in the minutes with a combination of P.J. Hairston, Marvin Williams, Jeremy Lamb, and Nicolas Batum. Analysis: Matt Selz

49ers Quinton Patton sustained a concussion Sunday.

He will now have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before he will be allowed to practice or play. The already struggling San Fran offense now loses a wideout option for at least a week and will have to look elsewhere to jump start it's ability to move the ball downfield. Analysis: Matt Selz

Bears coach John Fox says X-rays on S Antrel Rolle's ankle were negative.

A watching of the replay would have you believe there is noway his ankle didn't break, but it turns out it's likely a sprain as the X-rays came back clean. Rolle was in a walking boot on the sideline for the rest of the second half and his status for Week 5 is still up in the air but it's more likely than not that he misses the game in the "sea of red" that is Arrowhead Stadium. Harold Jones-Quartey should fill in for him if he can't go Sunday. Analysis: Matt Selz

Manager Bob Melvin says it's unclear if Coco Crisp (neck) can be an everyday player next year.

An aging veteran with an injury-plagued 2015 season and who is never quite fully healthy is the description best befitting of Crisp. He can certainly still play when healthy but it sounds like his best option for playing time come 2016 will be in a platoon role in Oakland. If that is the case he will have very little fantasy value in everyday formats since he can't be counted on to be on the field. Analysis: Matt Selz

Jabari Parker said he will not play in preseason game in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Milwaukee will be bringing their young superstar along slowly for the foreseeable future as he returns from an ACL injury last season. With this strategy it also means he likely won't play all the time to start the year which should be taken into account when drafting him. If he's still available after the midway point of the draft he has good value. Analysis: Matt Selz

Texans coach Bill O’Brien told reporters that Ryan Mallett is still the starting quarterback heading into Week 5 game against the Colts.

The more accurate description should be he's been named the starting QB for the first half of Week 5's divisional showdown considering the quarterback changes never seem to stop in Houston. Mallet has played in all or part of all four games this year compiling 720 yards on 51.8% completion rate with three scores and three picks. Neither he or Hoyer are worth anything in fantasy right now. Analysis: Matt Selz

Reggie Jackson has Achilles soreness and will be questionable for Tuesday's scrimmage.

It doesn't appear that this is a serious ailment and that rest is all he needs to treat it right now. Jackson should be ready to go come the start of the regular season and his 14.5 PPG to go along with 4.2 boards and 6.0 dishes a game make him a valuable point guard piece in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Matt Selz
