Fantasy Football Stock Report: Fantasy football impact of Ryan Fitzpatrick signing with the Jets

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.

This is HUGE news for Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Matt Forte. Now with a competent quarterback in Fitzpatrick, you can rely that he will be able to distribute the ball to his receivers similar to last year. All three players had seen their draft values drop due to the lack of a passing threat, but this signing erases all those doubts. The added bonus is that the Jets said goodbye to Chris Ivory (a bulldozer) and brought in Forte who is very reliable catching passes out of the backfield. Fitzpatrick’s value is trending up, and with all these established weapons around him, it’s not the craziest idea to take a flier on him in the very late rounds.

Hopefully Langford can avoid pulling an Eddie Lacy and ballooning up overweight. The extra pounds are meant to increase his durability and readiness for a “full” workload. The only problem is, Langford is supposedly heading into a running back by committee situation. He was flashy and fast, so hopefully the increased weight doesn’t effect his speed going forward. Langford showed his great potential last year, which made Forte expendable to the Bears. He should enter the season as a mid/low RB2 that has the potential to blow way up.

“Even with neutral arbitration now available in suspensions arising under the substance-abuse policy and the PED policy, none in the know believe Bell has a strong chance to win the appeal.”

Mike Florio –

Some bad news here for Le’Veon Bell as it looks like he will end up being suspended the first four games of the season. It’s frustrating to see Bell have this issue again as he missed the first two games last year. One of the most explosive players in the NFL and fantasy just can’t stay on the field and this time his suspension is even longer. It brings serious questions to Bell’s draft position and when he should be taken. Is he worth a first round pick still? Keep watch out for articles from RSJ where we will break down the possible future implications of Le’Veon Bell and his draft position.

Oft injured Ryan Mathews has hurt his ankle and made his trip back to the injury list where he owns a couple timeshares and condos. The Eagles running back has the backfield all to himself this season with the departure of Demarco Murray, which makes him poised for a breakout season if he can stay healthy. Mathews is a solid RB2 that has the potential to climb even higher if he takes advantage of his situation. Keep an eye on Wendell Smallwood, rookie out of West Virginia, if Mathews continues to struggle with injuries. We all know Darren Sproles isn’t fit to be a lead back.
