After holding out all offseason, Andre Johnson reported to training camp in late July and was quickly felled by a hamstring injury. That's quite an inauspicious start to the preseason for a 33-year-old receiver.

He ended up missing a couple of weeks worth of practices, but he was back in the mix a week ago and reportedly has looked terrific.

"Texans receiver Andre Johnson showed no signs of rust from his time away from the team this offseason," wrote CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Not surprisingly, Trent Richardson is slipping in fantasy drafts after a very disappointing first season in Indianapolis. Right now, the former No. 3 overall pick in 2012 is falling to the mid 50s in ESPN leagues. Is that a range where the 23-year-old may be a value, or is it still too high for a player who averaged just 2.9 yards per carry last season and hasn't looked like the same guy since entering the NFL?

Here's the latest out of Indianapolis.

There's a reason Philadelphia only had to give up a conditional seventh-round draft pick to acquire Kenjon Barner from Carolina -- the former Oregon standout had shown very little since being taken in the sixth round in 2013.

That being said, there's also a reason why Barner could flourish on the Eagles -- he'll be reunited with his college coach, Chip Kelly. Will Barner be able to rediscover the success he had under Kelly as a member of the Ducks?

After two quiet seasons, this was supposed to be the year that Stephen Hill figured things out and became the receiver the New York Jets expected him to be when they selected him 43rd overall in 2012. But that already is looking like a longshot.

On average, LeSean McCoy is the second player off the board in ESPN fantasy football leagues this year. Considering that he's stepping into his prime at 26 and racked up huge numbers in Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly's offense last year, that's no surprise. The only real risk is his health. He missed four games in 2012 and touched the rock 366 times in 2013.
