Aaron Rodgers    QB   Green Bay Packers
 
Rodgers (calf) has been named the AP 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rodgers will be awarded his second MVP award after a season where he racked up 4,381 passing yards and a spectacular 38:5 touchdown to interception ratio. Although he dealt with a calf injury that limited his mobility in the later parts of the season, the 31-year-old was still able to lead Green Bay to the NFC Championship game, where the Packers nearly knocked off the defending Super Bowl champions. One of his main weapons, receiver Randall Cobb, is set to become a free agent this offseason, but other than that, the majority of his weapons should remain in tact, setting Rodgers up for another big statistical season in 2015.
J.J. Watt    DE   Houston Texans
 
Watt has been named the AP 2014 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Watt caps off a historic season with the hardware to prove it, as the 25-year-old defensive end collected 20.5 sacks and five total touchdowns. The IDP star has now racked up 51.5 total sacks over the last three seasons combined, and led the league in 2014 with 50 quarterback hits. He's just the second player every to win the award twice in three seasons, and will almost certainly be the preseason favorite to do so again in 2015. Heading in to next season, Watt should be the No. 1 defensive player taken in fantasy drafts in nearly every format.
Marshawn Lynch    RB   Seattle Seahawks
 
Lynch (back) is officially probable for the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Patriots.

Nick Foles    QB   Philadelphia Eagles
 
Foles claims his collarbone has fully healed, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Foles added that he would have been able to play had the Eagles made the playoffs, suggesting he isn't greatly bothered by any lingering effects. The three-year veteran should effectively be ready to perform at the start of training camp, though he's set to be a free agent in 2016, and has been the subject of many offseason trade rumors. Until further notice, the 26-year-old is the Eagles' projected starter for 2015, and if he can hang on to the job, there's plenty of fantasy potential to be had in this fast-paced offense.
Ryan Broyles    WR   Detroit Lions
 
Broyles is likely down to his final chance with the Lions come the 2015 season, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Trent Richardson    RB   Indianapolis Colts
 
Richardson's suspension for conduct detrimental to the team voids the guarantee for his $3.184 million base salary in 2015, Joel Corry of the National Football Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Richardson was suspended for the Colts' final playoff game, and he'll be suspended for Week 1 of the 2015 season if he's still on the Indianapolis roster. It's pretty clear that he won't be on the roster, so the real issue is whether the Colts will have to eat the $3.184 million in dead money. This has been a rather unusual sequence of events, and Richardson will almost certainly file a grievance.
Jeremy Ross    WR   Detroit Lions
 
Ross caught 24-of-36 targets for 314 yards and a touchdown in 16 games during the 2014 season.

Odell Beckham    WR   New York Giants
 
Beckham indicated Sunday that he's still dealing with the effects of the hamstring issues that delayed his NFL debut this past season, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

"I was never fully healthy," noted Beckham, who still managed to catch 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games for the Giants as a rookie. "I was just trying to manage it and maintain it...It's still not right. [I'm] still working on it." With the 2014 regular season and the NFL Pro Bowl now in the books, Beckham, who (per the Daily News) reportedly played through two tears in his right hamstring this past season, now plans to rest in the coming weeks, with an eye toward approaching the 2015 campaign as healthy as possible.
Calais Campbell    DE   Arizona Cardinals
 
Campbell will undergo surgery next week to repair a sports hernia that he played through after Week 13, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Campbell has played 13 or more games in each of his seven NFL seasons, but he seemingly deals with an injury or two every year. In 2014, it was the sports hernia and a sprained MCL, with the latter causing him to miss Weeks 6 and 7. Campbell still had another fantastic year, piling up 58 tackles (48 solo), seven sacks, an interception, a forced fumble and three passes defensed. He should be healthy by the start of training camp next season, and while the Cardinals have a rather unfavorable cap situation, he doesn't figure to be one of the casualties.
Percy Harvin    WR   New York Jets
 
Rich Cimini of ESPN New York feels Harvin would be a logical cut for the Jets.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Harvin did nothing special in his eight games in New York, finishing with 29 catches for 350 yards and a touchdown (in addition to 110 rushing yards). New York owes Seattle a sixth-round pick for Harvin, but it becomes a fourth-round selection, if Harvin is still on the roster come the draft.
Brian Hoyer    QB   Cleveland Browns
 
Hoyer has not yet ruled out re-signing with the Browns this offseason, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Josh Gordon    WR   Cleveland Browns
 
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Gordon could be suspended for a year for failing a test for alcohol.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We'll await further details, but if the report of a potential suspension, which is echoed by ESPN's Adam Schefter, is confirmed, this latest news will further cloud the future of the Browns' talented wideout. Gordon, who caught 24 passes for 303 yards in five games this past season, served a 10-game suspension to start the 2014 campaign and was subsequently suspended by the Browns in Week 17 for a violation of team rules.
