Fantasy spin: Ward signs with Tampa Bay

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to have a shiny, new look in 2009.

The team has released veterans Derrick Brooks, Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard, passed on re-signing Jeff Garcia and added a new offensive weapon in Kellen Winslow. On Monday, the Bucs made their latest move by signing Derrick Ward to a four-year contract.

The deal shakes up the team’s backfield, but it makes the situation clearer for fantasy leaguers.

Giants 52 yards from NFL record book

Nicknamed Earth, Wind and Fire, the Giants backfield is on the verge of dancing its way into the NFL record book. Fresh off his 215-yard explosion against the Carolina Panthers, Giants running back Derrick Ward needs only 52 more rushing yards to reach 1,000 for the season. It is a total that New York’s other running back, Brandon Jacobs, already has met and surpassed.

The Giants’ Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward are close to becomming just the fourth set of NFL teammates to each rush for 1,000 yards in a single season.

RB Ward’s fantasy value on the rise

The New York Giants have ruled out Brandon Jacobs for Sunday night’s game in Dallas.

That makes Derrick Ward a tremendous fantasy option across the board in what could turn into a shootout at Texas Stadium. In fact, I see Ward as a high-end No. 2 fantasy back. In his last regular-season game in Dallas, Ward put up four catches, 136 scrimmage yards and one touchdown.
