2012 Fantasy Football: Training Camp, OTAs Fantasy Stock





With training camp underway soon (and OTAs ongoing), there will be updates daily to this 2012 Fantasy Football Training Camp Stock page if anything noteworthy happens.

If there's an injury or a player surprising/disappointing, I'll let you know about it and adjust my 2012 Fantasy Football Rankings accordingly. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

2012 Fantasy Football Offseason Stock - Week of July 30


AUG. 5

Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys
Dez Bryant has reportedly really stood out in training camp. He's in fantastic shape, which is great news because he often wore down in the second halves of games last year.

Antonio Gates, TE, Chargers
There have been glowing reports about Antonio Gates out of Chargers' camp. Reporters and players alike have proclaimed Gates to look as great as they've seen in years. Gates figures to have a terrific start to his 2012 campaign, but avoiding injury will of course be the main concern.

Nate Washington, WR, Titans
I discussed moving up Nate Washington in a recent fantasy mock draft because Kenny Britt is sure to be suspended. You can see a list of all of the fantasy mock drafts by clicking the link.





AUG. 3

Santonio Holmes, WR, Jets
Despite being uninjured, Santonio Holmes sat out one of the recent training camp practices, claiming to be sore. This wouldn't normally be a big deal, but he's done similar things in OTAs, and he already has been guilty of being a terrible locker room presence. The Jets should cut him to improve team morale. As for fantasy, just stay away from him.

Mark Ingram, RB, Saints
Mark Ingram is finally healthy. He's been practicing fully in training camp. Everyone is down on Ingram because he barely played last year, but he'll get the majority of the carries (especially those near the goal line) as long as he's not on the injury report. He's a nice value pick.




Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Jaguars
Maurice Jones-Drew's holdout continues. In fact, he and the Jacksonville front office aren't even talking. He hasn't even met new head coach Mike Mularkey yet. General manager Gene Smith is doing a great job of guaranteeing the worst record in the NFL with these tactics. Jones-Drew is the face of the franchise and the best offensive player, by far, so he deserves the money. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like he's getting a new contract anytime soon, which means he could be another contractually related bust.

Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Falcons
It's always a good sign when a coach compliments a running back on his pass-protection skills because that means that player will be on the field on passing downs at the very least. Mike Smith did this with Jacquizz Rodgers, who will be a bigger part of the offense with Michael Turner wearing down.

Evan Royster, RB, Redskins
Evan Royster has gotten most of the first-team reps in training camp thus far. Tim Hightower is hurt and the coaching staff views Roy Helu as a change-of-pace back, so once again, there's a good chance Royster will be the starting running back for the Redskins this season.





AUG. 1

Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Chiefs
Jonathan Baldwin has been taking full advantage of Dwayne Bowe's holdout. He's had a great training camp thus far and is poised to have a solid second season.

Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs
Dwayne Bowe's holdout continues. Bowe won't get the long contract he's coveting right now, so he's either making a dumb decision on his own or getting bad advice from his agent. Either way, he's not practicing, so his statistical output probably won't be as high this year as it should be.

Jake Locker, QB, Titans
Michael Lombardi said he's learned that Jake Locker is the favorite to start for the Titans this year, as expected. Locker is a late-round fantasy sleeper, thanks to his ability to pick up rushing numbers with his scrambling ability.

Bernard Pierce, RB, Ravens
Bernard Pierce recently suffered his second hamstring injury of the offseason. This means that Anthony Allen could be Baltimore's No. 2 running back.

Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings
John Carlson, who was signed to a ridiculous contract this offseason, sprained his MCL in training camp. He'll be out for a while, so he'll fall behind in terms of integrating himself into the offense. Kyle Rudolph, who has been very impressive this summer, will benefit. He's a nice tight end sleeper.


JULY 30

Randall Cobb, WR, Packers
Randall Cobb has been the most impressive Packer receiver at training camp thus far, per reports. And that includes Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson. Cobb is fourth in the Rodgers' target pecking order, but he's so talented that he almost has to become a big part of the offense soon.

Eric Decker, WR, Broncos
Peyton Manning has favored Eric Decker over Demaryius Thomas in Broncos' training camp thus far. Manning and Decker have clicked, while Thomas has had to receive instruction from Manning on several occasions. By the way, Awesome Girl Who Loves Football - follow her @emilysh93 - talked about how Manning looked at camp: "Peyton's fitting the ball into little spaces around defenders as he used to. The zip on the ball looks good."

Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots
Nothing really happened recently to Rob Gronkowski to warrant a stock down, but I want to drop him in my rankings because of the off-the-field stuff plus Brandon Lloyd really clicking with Tom Brady plus the injury he's recovering from.

Andre Johnson, WR, Texans
Here we go again. Andre Johnson strained his groin at training camp. It's not a serious injury, but it's a reminder of how easily he gets hurt. At 31, Johnson will continue to keep wearing down.

Mikel Leshoure, RB, Lions
Mikel Leshoure injured his hamstring Saturday. Hamstring problems don't sound serious, but they're the maladies that linger, especially when an overconfident player tries to return to action too early. Leshoure, who is also recovering from a torn Achilles, probably won't be on the field that much in the first half of this year.

Doug Martin, RB, Buccaneers
Doug Martin opened Buccaneers' training camp as the top running back, and he has maintained his position. He's been featured so heavily in the offense that LeGarrette Blount has been an afterthought.

Kevin Smith, RB, Lions
Jahvid Best has yet to be cleared to practice. Mikel Leshoure, who just injured his hamstring, is suspended for the first two games. Kevin Smith will likely start the opener, so he's a great sleeper in the middle rounds.

Robert Turbin, RB, Seahawks
Marshawn Lynch is likely to be suspended for his DUI, which means that rookie Robert Turbin will probably start. Several reports indicate that Turbin has been highly impressive in training camp.

Good thing you don't run a team, Walt. Cutting Holmes would just FORCE the Jets to run Cromartie at WR.

Niners fan here. Crabtree should be downgraded because of his latest injury. It's not a serious injury, but it still means he's going to miss a portion of training camp (and he's never participated in a training camp in his career).

Greg Jennings has been hurt with a bruised elbow in Packers training camp, not going to say Cobb hasn't been impressive, despite a few drops he has been all over the field making plays.
I don't listen to women when it comes to telling me if P. Mannings has zip on his passes...I'm not saying I'm just saying

NO BUY on Andre Johnson. The perception is that he can't stay healthy, but that's completely TRUE.

The Pats cut Addai because he quit during his physical, not because they have confidence in their young RB's. They'll sign another veteran in Addai's place.

@anon, he said that before Welk signed his tender.

@ Vince:

Welker signed his tender and was a full participant at OTAs, so where is Walt getting the idea that he's going to hold out in training camp? There's no reason to believe that he won't be there.

Welker signed his tender, doesn't that mean he is under contract is will attend training camp? That would mean he is not a hold out. Most franchise players who hold out do not sign their tender until after training camp, which is why the struggle in the season.

Hey anon, if you'd actually been reading what Walt was writing, you'd know that you're the one who's wrong. He never once said that Welker would hold out into the season; he isn't stupid enough to think that Welk would be stupid enough to do that.

What he's saying is that by holding out during training camp, he won't be as prepared for the season, so he'll struggle. His chief example was last year with Chris Johnson. Johnson didn't hold out into the season either, but he sure as hell struggled once he got there.
