Zac Stacy:  Yeah Stacy was pretty horrific running the football over the weekend but rookie Tre Mason has been absolutely abysmal in pass protection which means he is pretty much a zero threat to his counterpart's workload.  Stacy is not going to light the world on fire but he is likely to crack 1,100 yards and collect 7-10 scores with his bruising style.

Rob Gronkowski:  The All Pro New England Patriots tight end has already progressed to 11-on-11 drills and he publicly stated on Monday that he plans on being active for all 16 games.  This is music to all Gronkowski owners' ears but saying it and doing it are two different things.  The ability is unrivaled at tight end outside of Jimmy Graham but at the very least all signs point to Gronkowski being ready for Week 1.


Bishop Sankey:  The rookie is suffering from the dreaded "fumbleitis" which is a sure fire way to get nailed to the bench.  Head coach Ken Whisenhunt has acknowledged that Sankey has to work on his ball security skills which means Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster will continue to eat into his potential workload.  The one caveat is that Greene's knee has been an issue but ultimately Sankey has too much talent not to be dominating carries eventually.

LeSean McCoy:  The only reason we placed McCoy here is for those who haven't drafted yet and hold the top pick in their draft.  McCoy is battling a case of turf toe that he admitted was painful which means Jamaal Charles is the clear number 1 pick if you haven't already determined it yet.

Odell Beckham Jr.:  A number of years ago the New York Giants drafted Sinorice Moss (brother of Santana) and proceeded to watch him suffer hamstring injury after hamstring injury during his very unproductive career with the team.  While it is still incredibly early, Beckham Jr. is doing his best impression of Moss thus far as he reinjured his hamstring yet again on Tuesday which will continue to keep him off the field.  Long ago earning the annoyance of head coach Tom Coughlin, it is starting to already look like a lost season for the kid only weeks from the start of the season.  At the very least Beckham Jr's absence strengthens the fantasy football value of third wideout Jerrel Jernigan who opened eyes with very good play down the stretch last season.

C.J. Spiller:  Once again it looks like Spiller is going to be one big source of frustration and untapped potential in 2014 based on what we have seen through two preseason outings.  Spiller did not play on any third downs this past weekend and was completely off the field in red zone work as well.  Thus Spiller has little to no value outside of being a very low end RB 2 in PPR leagues.
