Adrian Peterson    RB   Minnesota Vikings
 
The NFL issued a statement Thursday relaying that effective Friday, Peterson will be reinstated as an active NFL player.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Upon his reinstatement, Peterson -- who was suspended without pay this past November for the remainder of the 2014 NFL season for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy -- will be permitted to participate in all scheduled activities with the Vikings. Peterson is under contract with the team this coming season for a base salary in the neighborhood of $13 million, but at this stage it remains to be seen if he will remain with the Minnesota organization. While the Vikings have indicated that they would like the running back to play for the team in 2015, Peterson's agent has said his client doesn't want to play for the Vikings. Minnesota has voluntary workouts that begin Monday and OTA's on May 28, but Peterson doesn't need to show up until a June 18 mandatory minicamp. Peterson's decision to return to the Vikings could drag into June if he's not traded before the NFL Draft.

Sammy Watkins    WR   Buffalo Bills
 
Coach Rex Ryan does not expect Watkins, who underwent a hip procedure following the 2014 season, to do much football-related work until August, but the coach expects him to be fully ready for training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Ryan, “My understanding is Sammy is doing really well. We’re not going to see him out there until training camp. But he should be full go when we get to training camp.”

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We wouldn't knock Watkins down at all due to the injury. He also should be primed for a strong career after flashing signs of brilliance as a rookie. That said, the Bills still don't know who their quarterback is going to be and there's a lot of talented mouths to feed with Watkins, LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson, Charles Clay, Percy Harvin, and Robert Woods all in the mix. It's also worth mentioning that Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman say they're committed to being a run-heavy team in 2015.
Tevin Coleman    RB   Free Agent
 
Coleman (foot) ran the 40-yard dash in times that ranged from the mid-4.3s to the low 4.4s on Wednesday, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Philip Rivers    QB   San Diego Chargers
 
Rivers, who is entering the final year of his contract, is worried that the Chargers may move to Los Angeles in 2016 or 2017, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Chargers still hope Rivers will sign a long-term extension, but the 33-year-old quarterback indicated that he's willing to play out the season and hit free agency. While it still seems like speculation at this stage, the Chargers might consider a blockbuster trade involving Rivers rather than risk losing a franchise quarterback for nothing besides draft compensation. Tennessee is mentioned as a possible landing spot, as the Titans own the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and Rivers has family in the area. The Chargers recently met with Marcus Mariota, who figures to come off the board long before San Diego picks at No. 17 overall.
Michael Crabtree    WR   Oakland Raiders
 
Crabtree signed a one-year deal with the Raiders worth $3 million, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Crabtree spent his first six seasons with San Francisco but will head across the Bay to team up with Derek Carr next season. The 27-year-old should line up alongside fellow wide receivers James Jones, Rod Streater, and Andre Holmes, leaving the potential for Crabtree to see a decent amount of passes thrown his way during the 2015-16 campaign.
Hakeem Nicks    WR   Free Agent
 
Nicks visited with the Titans on Monday, The Tennessean reports.

EJ Manuel    QB   Buffalo Bills
 
Manuel is expected to compete with three other quarterbacks in what the team is calling an open quarterback competition, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said coordinator Greg Roman on Monday, "I think all four are doing a very nice job in our meetings and in communicating ... everyone will have a chance to work with the first team and everybody's going to have ample opportunity to put their best foot forward. When we start evaluating then we'll start to play around with things a little bit, who's with the first team the one day, and the next day, and so forth. We'll have a good feel for it as we go."

Greg Jennings    WR   Free Agent
 
Jennings (elbow) is visiting the Jaguars on Monday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While it's unclear if the Jaguars will land Jennings, if the 31-year-old wideout does join the team, he'll provide a veteran complement to second-year pass-catchers Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. Jennings is coming off a 2014 campaign in which he caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six TDs for the Vikings.
Allen Robinson    WR   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
Robinson (foot) threw out the first pitch in the Detroit Tigers home opener, the Oakland Press reports.
