Andre Williams:  Echoing what we spoke about last night, Williams is now looking like the clear goal-line back for the New York Giants while Rashad Jennings works between the 20's.  Jennings opened up by catching 3 balls from Eli Manning and he carries low end RB 2 value based on that part of the game but Williams was going undrafted prior to the Hall of Fame game which has to change now.  Williams looks like the new Brandon Jacobs and the latter had some very nice seasons scoring touchdowns early in his career.

Johnny Manziel:  It was widely assumed that veteran Brian Hoyer was a near-lock to start Week 1 for the Cleveland Browns but the last week is supplying some differing developments regarding that large decision.  Manziel looked solid in an intrasquad outing over the weekend he started Monday's practice with the first-team offense which was a very notable development.  Manziel is a giant mystery as he has magnificent tools to be an instant fantasy football asset in two-QB formats but he also carries many questions about whether his game will work in the NFL. 

James White:  Rampant speculation has already been talked about in New England about how impressive the rookie fourth-round pick has been for the team.  The fallout of White receiving increased work than was expected is that Shane Vereen will be negatively impacted.  Vereen has a very small window of value that is tied almost completely in the receiving part of his game and anything that White takes from him will hurt badly.

Dennis Pitta:  I already was very high on Pitta as a prime fantasy football tight end sleeper but was put off a bit by the signing of pass-receiving Owen Daniels during the offseason.  However Daniels has looked horrible in camp and clearly has lost a step which means he is not looking like much of a threat to the workload of Pitta.  Could be a huge season for Pitta now that he is healthy.


Ryan Matthews:  We already spoke at length about why Matthews is set up to be a bust this season but even the man himself is referencing how the San Diego Chargers will use three backs this season.  Matthews already has given up the PPR part of his game to Danny Woodhead and now Donald Brown is on board fresh off signing a three-year deal to steal carries.  Also counting on Matthews staying healthy for two straight years is foolish.  Cash out.
