Bradshaw “healing perfectly”: Recently released running back Ahmad Bradshaw will need to prove he’s healthy before another team takes a chance on him for 2013. In that regard, things seem to be going well. The veteran runner received word recently that his surgically-repaired foot is “healing perfectly” and is expected to be ready in time for OTAs. However, his next step (figuratively, at least) is to be signed by someone. Injuries in recent years have knocked his fantasy value down, but with the right team, Bradshaw can still be a mid-level No. 2 option in many leagues.
MJD expected to attend mini-camp: In the midst of rehabbing a troublesome foot injury, Maurice Jones-Drew is expected to attend Jacksonville Jaguars mini-camp, though he isn’t expected to participate. Jones-Drew was one of 2012’s biggest disappointments, playing in just six games and rushing for 414 yards. As long as he continues to recover from surgery and is in camp on time — which shouldn’t be a problem — there’s no reason MJD can’t regain his place among the elite fantasy running backs in 2013.
Jackson voids contract: As has been expected for some time, Steven Jackson has voided his contract with the St. Louis Rams, officially putting himself on the free agent market. Early on, it looks as though the Atlanta Falcons are the front-runner for Jackson’s services in 2013. He has been a tough runner throughout his career, but with the wear and tear he has suffered, combined with the possibility of going to a pass-heavy offense, it’s hard to see Jackson as anything more than a high-end No. 2 option.
