Can Ameer Abdullah salvage his career and land a role with the Vikings? It might be on special teams, or potentially a small offensive role, but it won’t be enough to want him on your Fantasy squad. Don’t even think about drafting him.


Things just continue to get worse for Josh Adams this offseason, and he’s not someone to covet in most leagues. First, the Eagles added Jordan Howard via trade from Chicago, and then Philadelphia selected rookie Miles Sanders in the second round of the NFL Draft. It was also reported in April that Adams is facing a six-month recovery from shoulder surgery. We’ll see if Adams is healthy in time for the start of training camp, but Adams will have limited Fantasy value this season in a secondary role -- if he makes the inal roster. Adams is not worth drafting in most leagues.


Jay Ajayi remains a free agent at the time of publication, and we’ll see if he can sign with a new team this season, likely in a reserve role. Ajayi is coming off last year’s torn ACL, which could be the reason no team has taken a chance on him yet, although he should be healthy in time for training camp. He spent 2018 with the Eagles and had two games with at least 11 PPR points in the four games he played before getting hurt. We’ll see if he lands with a team that will give him a decent workload, but it’s doubtful he’ll have the chance to start in Week 1, barring an injury. He’s only worth a late-round lier until we know he’s destination for 2019.


Annual Fantasy nuisance Javorius Allen doesn’t carry any Fantasy value so long as he’s without a team. Once he inevitably signs and worms his way into a role, he’ll offer some cheap appeal as a touchdown-or-bust running back. Expect him to begin the season on waivers.


C.J. Anderson signed with Detroit this offseason, and he’s expected to share touches with Kerryon Johnson and Theo Riddick. Based on Riddick’s role in the passing game, Anderson will likely be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Johnson. Now, which Anderson should you expect to see this season? The one who failed to make an impact with Carolina at the start of last year, which eventually led to his release? Or the one who starred with the Rams at the end of last season, including a combined 47 PPR points in two games without Todd Gurley in the regular season? Johnson should lead the Lions in touches, but he missed the inal six games of the season last year with a knee injury. Anderson should have the chance for a decent amount of work, and he’s worth a late-round pick in all formats.


If not for his massive injury concerns, Rodney Anderson would have been a second- or third-round pick in the draft. Instead, the Bengals nabbed him in Round 6. When he’s on the ield, Anderson is strong, sure-handed and able to lay a block. He lacks the explosive speed you want from a rusher, and it’s unknown if he’ll get it back after tearing his ACL last September. Early in college also fractured a vertebrae and broken his left leg. There’s a chance the Bengals “redshirt” Anderson and hope he contributes in 2020. Or, if he’s all set for training camp, he’ll compete for a spot on the depth chart with fellow rookie Trayveon Williams and veteran Giovani Bernard. Either way, Anderson doesn’t offer much excitement. No one will draft him in seasonal leagues, but he’s in consideration for one of the last picks in long-term drafts and rookie-only formats.


Ryquell Armstead could emerge as the primary backup to Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville, a good job given Fournette’s past. Armstead is a bully of a runner, powering downhill through defenders with good speed. He can also block fairly well, but he’s not elusive and doesn’t offer a whole lot as a pass-catcher, limiting his value. If he can improve in those areas, he’ll have an opportunity sooner or later to be worthy of a Fantasy roster space. You may see Armstead get taken late in seasonal leagues but that’s not a good idea until we’re sure of his spot on the depth chart. Until then, draft him late in long-term formats and with a third-rounder in rookie-only drafts.


Cameron Artis-Payne has been a backup for the Panthers for years. That’ll remain the case in 2019, meaning he shouldn’t impact your Fantasy leagues unless Christian McCaffrey misses playing time. Keep him off rosters.
