With the No. 113 pick in the NFL draft, the New York Giants selected Boston College RB Andre Williams.
He's six feet tall and weighs in close to 230 pounds. His number sat the combine were impressive and his size and speed, comparatively, make for a strong candidate to make an early impact with the Giants. He's not much of a pass-catcher, but he should easily push David Wilson and Rashad Jennings for touches this season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
He was projected as a round 2/3 pick, so this is a bargain for the Giants. He has good speed but is not elusive. Not a great receiving option, either.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Red Sox have recalled Jackie Bradley Jr from Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Red Sox are in need of some depth as Shane Victorino is on the DL and with Mike Napoli nursing a bad case of the sniffles, Daniel Nava is being used at first base. Bradley may be able to audition here for a larger role and could conceivably carve something out for himself while Victorino is out, if he plays well. For now, though, he is not someone fantasy owners should be considering. Analysis: Howard Bender
Bills have exercised their fifth-year contract option on CB Stephon Gilmore.
The Bills are obviously hoping that they exercised the option on the second-half Gilmore and not the first-half guy. Over the early part of the season, Gilmore was toasted by receivers every which way, allowing 22 completions on 27 passes thrown in his direction. In the second half though, he massively improved his coverage skills and allowed just 21 completions on 42 passes thrown his way as quarterbacks made a major attempt to expose his flaws. If he can maintain where he was in the latter half of the season he should prove to be a strong defensive asset. Analysis: Howard Bender
