Daily Fantasy Stock Report: The Jets top two wide receivers protesting OTAs

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

 

“Amid a report that Jets receiver Eric Decker is skipping Organized Team Activities to make a statement in support of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, it appears that Jets receiver Brandon Marshall is doing the same.”

-Michael David Smith, Pro Football Talk

So, two veteran “leaders” of the Jets offense have decided to skip OTAs because their front office has yet to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Yes, the two wide receivers who accounted for 55-percent of the team’s receptions in 2015, will be sitting out the first Organized Team Activities of the 2016 season. Jets gonna Jets.

“Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott was the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and immediately labeled as the savior of the Dallas Cowboys offense. That may be the case when the season starts but right now the former Ohio State star has to earn his way, running second team behind veteran Darren McFadden.”

-Clarence E. Hill Jr., Star-Telegram

This comes to no surprise, as Ezekiel Elliott started off OTAs with the second team offense, behind Darren McFadden. The rookie has to earn his starting spot, but hopefully he does not start off in a committee with McFadden and Alfred Morris. “It’s a lot faster pace,” Elliott said Wednesday. “The game moves so much faster. Yesterday, I’m not going to lie, I was a little bit shell-shocked. But today I came out. I was a little bit more prepared and was more ready mentally so it was a little bit easier for me.” Looks like ‘Zeke got his “Welcome to the NFL” moment on day one.

Cam Newton’s No. 1 perimeter target participated in his first organized practice since tearing his ACL last August. Benjamin is a beast in the redzone which will only boost Newton’s fantasy stock and cement the former Seminole as a WR2 in most formats.

“Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in January and could miss the rest of the off-season.”

-Dave Birkett, Detroit Free Press

Ameer Abdullah will be sitting out of OTAs, but he should be available for training camp. Earlier in the week, Abdullah was talked about as being the clear No. 1 guy in Detroit, but this injury will only limit his touches and give other players such as Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner and Stevan Ridley to gain traction on Abdullah.

Not strictly fantasy:

  • Green Bay WR Davante Adams wasn’t proud of his 2015 campaign. Fantasy owners weren’t happy about it either, Davante.
  • Yes Wes Welker, please retire. It’s for your own good.
  • Arian Foster thinks he needs another month to get to a “Pro Bowl level.” Expect him to sign with a team then, once he can pass a physical with flying colors.
