More updates based on free agency signings
Michael Jenkins was released so that means Jones wins the starter spot by default. It was never really in question but now with Jenkins out of the picture it means more targets for Jones. I’ll be giving him a boost to his projections.
McGahee is now on a team that should be giving him consistent carries. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up being the lead back with what I’ve been hearing about Moreno. Right now if I had the choice of either drafting McGahee and Moreno, I’d take McGahee.
He’s not that great but he’s re-united with Mike Martz and should be used a lot more in the Bears offense. He’s also pretty much the only redzone threat they have on the team now so his TD numbers should be quite high.
I think any WR would benefit after going from Andy Dalton to Tom Brady. The Pats are great at getting vets with “issues” that manage to turn it around. I expect a big year from Chad.
Reportedly the Dolphins told Reggie Bush he’d be the “feature back” in Miami. We’ll have to see if this is true and even if it is we have to keep in mind Bush is extremely injury prone. Regardless, this is a boost to Bush’s value who would have been playing behind Ingram and possibly Thomas in New Orleans.
Jeremy Shockey/Greg Olsen
Neither we’re great fantasy targets anyways but now they’re on the same team with a rookie QB. It’s going to be hard for either of them to be consistent fantasy producers.
I wasn’t a fan of Thomas anyways but the Reggie Bush signing should drop his numbers. We have to see which one is the main ball carrier but there was always going to be a 2 back system in place.
I thought Thomas was going to step into Reggie Bush’s role in New Orleans but the Saints went ahead and signed Sproles. Thomas will likely be just the #2 behind Ingram now and won’t see as many targets in the passing game.
So much for getting him more involved in the offense. Now he’ll be playing behind Knox and Roy Williams. He still has some value, but not as much upside.
