2012 Fantasy Football: Training Camp 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 Aug. 13


AUG. 18

Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs
Dwayne Bowe has signed his franchise tender, concluding his holdout. Bowe is still at risk to have a down season because he has missed so much training camp time, but there's a better chance now that he'll have a solid campaign.

Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Steelers
Rashard Mendenhall has been activated off the PUP. He's still not expected to suit up in September, but it's looking like he'll be available sooner than previously anticipated. He's once again worth a late-round flier.

Isaac Redman, RB, Steelers
And another running back bites the dust. Isaac Redman has suffered multiple injuries, prompting the Steelers to prematurely activate Rashard Mendenhall off the PUP list. This means they could push Mendenhall to return sooner than anticipated. Redman's stock obviously takes a major hit in the wake of this news.





AUG. 16

Jahvid Best, RB, Lions
Adam Schefter is reporting that Jahvid Best is likely to open the season on the PUP list, meaning he won't be eligible to play in the first six weeks of the season. This is obviously a devastating blow to his draft stock, making him nothing more than a late-round flier.

Santonio Holmes, WR, Jets
Surprise, surprise, Santonio Holmes has suffered yet another injury. This time it's his back. Holmes reported to OTAs and training camp out of shape and is getting banged up because of it. Stay away from him in your fantasy draft.




Kevin Smith, RB, Lions
Jahvid Best is likely to open the season on the PUP list, per Adam Schefter. Mikel Leshoure, coming off an injury of his own, has been suspended for two games. Kevin Smith, who looked great in the exhibition opener versus Cleveland, will start for Detroit.

Jason Witten, TE, Cowboys
Jason Witten is out for the rest of the preseason and his status for the opener is now in doubt because of internal injuries he suffered during a tackle from Rolando McClain in the preseason opener. I'm only dropping Witten a little bit because he'll likely be back in Week 2 or 3.





AUG. 15

Roy Helu, RB, Redskins
It's looking like Roy Helu will miss this week's preseason game with Achilles' tendinitis. This is definitely not helping Helu, who was already deemed too brittle to handle a full workload by his coaching staff. It appears as though Evan Royster will be the Redskins' starting running back this year.

Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos
Ronnie Hillman re-injured his hamstring Tuesday. Hillman has already missed a week and a half with the same problem, so it's now tough to imagine him challenging for much playing time early in the season, especially considering how John Fox hates using rookies. Don't draft Hillman until the final couple of rounds, if at all.

Evan Royster, RB, Redskins
Evan Royster will once again draw the start for the Redskins this weekend, as Roy Helu will likely be out with Achilles' tendinitis. Mike Shanahan doesn't think Helu can handle a full workload, so this will further convince him that he's right. Royster is the overwhelming favorite to be the starting running back.


AUG. 13

Cedric Benson, RB, Bengals
The Packers signed Cedric Benson. He's not any good, but he's the favorite to handle all of the early-down work. At best, he's an RB3 in non-PPR leagues, but at least he's back in the NFL.

Alex Green, RB, Packers
Green Bay added Cedric Benson to the roster, so the front office clearly doesn't have any confidence in Alex Green's ability to handle the early-down work. He'll be relegated to third-down duties.

James Starks, RB, Packers
James Starks really struggled in the Packers' preseason opener. He also has turf toe. All of this prompted Green Bay to acquire Cedric Benson, which means Starks is no longer draftable in any format.

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

You still didn't hear anything about how Vincent Jackson looks fantastic in camp huh? Let's see how long you cling to your original stance on this.

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.
