Peyton Manning Will Get Days Off In Training Camp... Like It Or Not Friday, July 31, 2015 | Time: 12:32 PT |  Reported by USA Today

The Facts: The Broncos will spend August with January in mind, at least when it comes to Manning. This training camp will be markedly different for Manning, in that every three or four days he will be sent to the sidelines. The Broncos are hoping the added rest will help keep Manning fresh, while also giving much-needed practice time to backup Brock Osweiler, who despite having been on the roster for three years, has rarely spent full practices running the first-team offense.
Diehards Line: Manning received an introduction to taking time off during offseason workouts, but as USA Today's Lindsay Jones notes, skipping snaps in August is unheard of for the workaholic quarterback. But Manning’s boss, GM John Elway, said the rest will be crucial to the QB’s success late in the season. “The key thing with Peyton, and I think Peyton is on board with it, is that even though you can't feel it now, and if you're doing too much work now, eventually that's going to catch up to you,” Elway said. He would know. When Elway retired in 1999 at age 38, it was because his body couldn’t handle the rigors of the NFL. Now it is his job – along with HC Gary Kubiak, who helped coach Elway through the final years of his career -- to make sure Manning’s body holds up through at least 16 games.

No Plan For Tony Romo Yet; But It's Coming Friday, July 31, 2015 | Time: 12:31 PT |  Reported by ESPN.com

The Facts: Last summer, Romo didn't practice more than two straight days while the team was in training camp, because of his surgically repaired back. The Cowboys will have a plan for Romo's back this summer, but the quarterback will set it. "Tony did a really good job this offseason; he practiced virtually in all of the OTAs, some days were more full than others, and we'll just kind of watch him," HC Jason Garrett said. "We don't have a plan right now saying he's going to practice two days, be off a day, whatever. But as training camp goes on, we'll develop that plan based on how he's feeling, how he's handling the workload.
Diehards Line: Garrett added: "You'll probably see him practice a lot; you'll probably see him have some off days. There's nothing structured at this point. ..." Romo was held out of the final day of the June mini-camp like a few players as the Cowboys called an end to their preseason. Romo said on a few occasions this offseason was his best in years because of all the work he was able to put in. He had to play catch-up last summer after a discectomy kept him off the field in the spring. He missed the 2013 offseason after undergoing surgery to remove a cyst from his back.

football diehards headline player photo Goodell Upholds Brady's Suspension; Destruction Of Evidence A Key Point Jul 28,2015
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has upheld Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on integrity of the game, the league announced Tuesday.

As NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal reminded readers, Brady was suspended four games in May after footballs used by the Patriots during the AFC Championship Game against the Colts were found to be inflated under the minimum level prescribed by the league.

Along with the NFL Players Association, Brady challenged his penalty and testified before Goodell at an appeal hearing last month. ... Full Story

2nd Year Fantasy Football Players to Watch
By Chad Stapley

 2nd Year Players Who Are Ready to Break Out

 

Troy Niklas – TE – Arizona Cardinals

Niklas didn’t do anything in his rookie season. He caught a whopping three passes in his first season. Much of that can be due to the fact that he had four different QBs throwing him the ball and he never really got into a groove. Look for Niklas to make huge strides with some consistency at the QB position with Carson Palmer coming back from injury. Niklas is 6’6 and weighs 270 lbs. so he can be a nice red-zone target for Palmer.

 

Devonta Freeman – RB – Atlanta Falcons

Freeman is going into the Pre-Season as the starting RB for the Falcons. He had flashes of brilliance last year when he played mop up duty as the 3rd RB on the roster. Freeman has all the opportunities to excel in year two especially with how teams will have to play extra DB’s in the pass heavy Falcons offense.
