Let's give it up for coach-speak and camp-talk, people! You're going to be inundated with all sorts of chatter from the teams, but let';s face it...barring a seething hatred for a particular player, the majority of what you'll hear is rah-rah rhetoric trying to get the team and fan-base hyped up for the season. Don't be that fantasy owner who bases decisions on this type of talk. Gasol is who he is and will be a strong option, but slimmer and "looking good" should not be factored in here.
The Broncos had said Green would be a game-time decision in Week 3 but after missing three consecutive practices leading up the weekend, the team declared him as out on Friday. Monitor his progress this week, but don't get too excited over him as a fantasy option. Trevor Siemien is making progress as a starter, but his focus is on hitting his wideouts downfield right now, no short passes to an over-hyped tight end.
