Fantasy Player Updates & News  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

Update: LeBron James' agent is pushing for the superstar's return to Cleveland. 

After everything that went down, would the city of Cleveland even welcome him back? For the city's sake, we hope not, but in truth, there's probably no way the Cavs are a real destination for him as they won't have a supporting cast like he needs/wants to even consider them. Sadly, this is going to be a story throughout the summer and it's about as exciting as the two years we all spent wondering if Brett Favre was going to retire.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Rays are interested in signing Ryan Webb.

Another veteran relief pitcher who could benefit the Rays bullpen, and another relief pitcher who should be left off of your fantasy team. Webb has a career record of 17-18, and has never recorded a single save throughout his six years in the league. He has no upside, and his floor is as low as it could possibly be. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Rays are having advanced contract talks with Tommy Hunter although a deal is not yet imminent.

While Hunter is a veteran relief pitcher who could help bolster the Rays bullpen, his services are not needed on your fantasy team. Hunter has recorded double digit saves just once in his seven-year career, and holds a mediocre 4.31 ERA. He has no real fantasy value. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Nets have called the Hawks to discuss a trade for Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap.

Unless the Nets are willing to part ways with Brook Lopez and/or Thaddeus Young, it's unlikely they're able to pull off a trade of this magnitude. Most likely, they're just inquiring to see just how desperate the Hawks really are at trying to free up cap space. As a result, it's doubtful this trade actually materializes. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Matt Hasselbeck is leaning towards returning for the 2016 season.

After nearly two decades in the NFL, it seems that Hasselbeck isn't done yet. While he played admirably last season, it was evident his 40-year-old body just isn't what it once was, as Hasselbeck was forced to endure numerous injuries before eventually being placed on inured reserve. If he does return, the Colts will most likely carry three quarterbacks into the season as a precautionary measure. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Jets are said to really like reserve offensive lineman Brent Qvale.

While the Jets may "really like" Qvale, that has absolutely no bearing in terms of fantasy purposes. Qvale is simply a reserve offensive lineman the Jets like as a backup. Even if he does become a starter, it's not like you have any open offensive linemen spots on your fantasy team. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Giants have hired former Lions general manager Martin Mayhew as director of football operations.

Mayhew will reportedly deal predominantly with the salary cap, contract negotiations, CBA compliance, and any special projects tasked down by Giants general manager Jerry Reese. Mayhew was the Lions general manager from 2008 to 2015, before being fired.  Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Raptors have shown interest in trading for Ryan Anderson.

With franchise shooting guard DeMar DeRozan set to become a free agent after this season, it makes sense the Raptors would attempt to bolster their supporting cast in order to increase their chances of re-signing their All-Star shooting guard. Anderson is in the midst of a solid bounce-back season, averaging nearly 17 points and six rebounds per game and could provide the Raptors with a solid rotational big man behind Luis Scola. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Jahri Evans refused to take a pay cut before his release from the Saints.

The Saints knew they would have to make some difficult decisions in order to free up cap space, and long-time Saints offensive lineman Jahri Evans was unfortunately a casualty as a result. Evans' agent reportedly said the 10-year veteran was unwilling to take a pay cut for the second season in a row, and plans to play elsewhere next season. The six-time Pro Bowler will almost surely find a market for his services once free agency opens up. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Seahawks have signed WR Jeff Fuller.

The Seattle Seahawks have signed CFL player Jeff Fuller. Fuller has bounced around a few NFL teams throughout his brief career -- most recently the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins -- only seeing action, however, during the preseason or as a practice squad player. Unless Fuller has an impressive training camp and preseason, it's unlikely he makes the Seahawks 53-man roster. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Nerlens Noel will not participate in Rising Stars game because of knee tendinitis.

For Noel-owners, this is good news and bad news. Bad news is the fact that Noel's knee tendinitis, which has already caused him to miss the 76ers past game, is serious enough to force him to sit out the Rising Stars Challenge. Good news is at least he'll now have extra time to rest, and come back fully healthy following the All-Star break. Noel has played better as of late, scoring in double figures in six of his last 10 games played. If for some reason a worried owner drops him, he's definitely worth a pickup. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Seahawks signed RB Cameron Marshall.

Marshall has yet to see any live NFL action throughout his two-year career in the league. Unless Marshall has a stellar preseason, he'll most likely end up on a team's practice squad or wash out of the NFL entirely. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Nate Allen have re-signed with the Raiders after being released earlier this week.

Most likely Allen's new deal will be a more team-friendly one than his previous four-year $23 million contract he signed prior to last season. Allen had a disastrous first go-around with the Raiders this past season, appearing in only five games and recording just seven tackles and one interception.  Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Joey Gallo will spend the bulk of his time at third base this spring, no first base plans for now.

In just 36 games, and 108 at-bats, Gallo was able to record six home runs and 14 RBI's last season. While his slugging percentage was an impressive .417, he struck out an outrageously-high 57 times to finish with a disappointing .204 average. At just 22 years old, Gallo definitely has some upside appeal when it comes to his career with the Texas Rangers. However, from a fantasy perspective, he should be left off of your draft boards. Analysis: Ari Gilberg

Pirates sign LHP Cory Luebke to a minor league contract with an invite to big-league camp.

Luebke somehow has even less fantasy appeal than O'Flaherty. While O'Flaherty has at least pitched in the majors, Luebke hasn't seen the mound since 2012 due to a pair of Tommy John surgeries. Even if you play in a 16-man league, neither of the two newly-signed Pirates pitchers should be drafted. Analysis: Ari Gilberg
