Schefter: Buccaneers' Jameis Winston to be suspended 3 games for Uber incident
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston will be suspended three games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Schefter's colleague, ESPN Tallahassee radio host Jeff Cameron, reported Wednesday night that Winston was expecting a suspension but that it would likely be only 1 game. Winston is alleged to have groped an Uber driver, and even though he was never charged with a crime, the NFL has proven they won't hesitate taking these sorts of matters into their own hands. Ryan Fitzpatrick is second at quarterback on the Buccaneers' depth chart.
Prior to this report, numberFire's models projected Jameis to throw for 4,177 passing yards, 26.43 touchdowns, and 15.8 interceptions in 2018, with an additional 160.3 yards and 1.76 scores on the ground. He was the QB18 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
DeShone Kizer and Brett Hundley struggling during Packers' minicamp
Green Bay Packers quarterbacks DeShone Kizer and Brett Hundley struggled during minicamp, ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes.
Both looked absolutely terrible last season, but there was at least some hope that Kizer -- who came over from the Cleveland Browns in a trade -- could take a step forward in a better situation. Demovsky writes that both held the ball too long, took sacks, and struggled with his accuracy during minicamp. Unless one of them improves in training camp, Green Bay's backup situation will once again be a concern.
Among the 45 quarterbacks to drop back at least 100 times last season, Kizer's -0.17 Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) per drop back were fourth-least. Hundley put up -0.15 -- the sixth-worst rate.
Jets' Robby Anderson receives legal slap on wrist
New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson pled no contest to a reckless driving charge.
All other charges from Anderson's January incident were dropped, but he was still facing a misdemeanor charge. He was given six months of non-reporting probation. Anderson's legal issues are behind him, but he could still face discipline from the league.
Our models project Anderson for 884 receiving yards and 4.3 touchdowns on 64 catches in the 2018 season. He is currently our 31st wide receiver for fantasy purposes.
Free agent Eric Decker eyeing up Patriots
Free agent wide receiver Eric Decker "would love" to play for the New England Patriots.
Decker -- 31 years old and coming off a drop-filled and offensively dull 2017 with the Tennessee Titans -- has been greeted with a non-existent market. Decker did turn things around some in the playoffs, catching 8-of-12 passes for 106 yards and a score Unfortunately for Decker, the Pats' wideout room is chock full of slot receivers.
Among the 85 receivers with 50 targets or more in 2017, Decker's 0.55 Reception Net Expected Points (NEP) per target came in 67th.
Buccaneers' Jameis Winston could be facing suspension
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is "prepared for the NFL to levy a suspension" in its investigation of his March 2016 sexual assault incident with an Uber driver, ESPN Tallahassee Radio's Jeff Cameron reports.
Per Cameron, the belief is that his suspension will be no longer than three games, and likely just one. Winston was never charged with a crime, but the NFL has tended to make decisions regardless of legal punishment lately. Clarity in this situation may be a ways off here.
Still assuming a 16-game season for Winston, our models project him for 4,177 passing yards, 26.4 touchdowns, and 15.8 interceptions on 573 attempts. We put him 18th at the quarterback position for fantasy purposes.
Seahawks' Brandon Marshall (toe, ankle, hamstring) will be ready for training camp
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Brandon Marshall (toe, ankle, hamstring) should be ready for camp, head coach Pete Carroll said.
Marshall has had toe and ankle surgeries since he landed on injured reserve last season, and he missed minicamp with a hamstring injury. "I'm not where I want to be, not even close," Marshall said of his health. Marshall will be entering his age-34 season, has been unable to stay healthy and productive, and Seattle owes him just $90,000 guaranteed; he is not a lock for the final roster.
As of now, our models project Marshall for 503 receiving yards and 2.6 touchdowns on 41 catches in the 2018 season. This puts him 71st among our wide receiver fantasy projections.
