Latest to join 80+ juniors to declare for draft
Arizona announced on Monday that Ka'Deem Carey would forego his final year of eligibility to enter May's NFL Draft. Carey has flourished in Tucson the last two seasons. After leading the FBS in rushing yards per game with 148.38 in 2012, Carey improved that number to 157.08 in 2013, though he finished second to Boston College's Andre Williams. (CBS Sports)
FF Today's Take: Production was no problem for Carey, finishing his college career with 16 straight 100-yard rushing performances. He amassed 3,814 rushing yards and 42 rushing touchdowns the last two seasons and is an accomplished receiver. He'll battle it out with Auburn's Tre Mason, Washington's Bishop Sankey and Baylor's Lache Seastrunk to be the top back taken in the draft.

Browns also considering Gase, Munchak, others for HC
Browns' officials realizes it may be a longshot to land Gus Malzahn, who nearly won a national title at Auburn and is very happy there, but his offensive innovation and the style of offense he runs is very much in line with what the team would like to put in place (the Browns are also very high on quarterback Johnny Manziel, sources said, who would be a perfect fit in a Malzahn offense). The Browns immediately asked to talk to Bronocs OC Adam Gase following their firing of Rob Chudzinski at the end of the regular season, but were informed he would not do any interviews, if at all, until after Denver's season ends. (CBS Sports)
FF Today's Take: The Browns hold two first-round picks, including No. 4 overall, but that appears to be one of the few attractive qualities they have to offer. If Cleveland's interest in Manziel is real, it's further proof the situation is every bit as toxic as some have suggested. The firing of Rob Chudzinski after one year likely has some candidates on edge and it is not a good look for the front office if they have their favorite quarterback in mind before they have their new coach in place.

Raiders RB set to be a free agent
Over the course of Darren McFadden's star-crossed six-year career with the Oakland Raiders, the only coach to get consistent production out of the running back was Hue Jackson. But with the Raiders apparently tired of being unable to count on McFadden, McFadden due to become an unrestricted free agent on March 11 and Jackson just promoted as the Cincinnati Bengals' offensive coordinator, might McFadden find a new home in Ohio? (ESPN)
FF Today's Take: A move to Cincinnati with Hue Jackson as the offensive coordinator would make sense for the oft-injured McFadden but BenJarvus Green-Ellis remains under contract for 2014. We'll see how this shakes out once free agency begins in March.

Williams and Tolbert to handle running back duties
Jonathan Stewart said multiple times this week he was running comfortably in practice with little to no pain, but the running back will not play Sunday for the Panthers. Stewart is inactive for Carolina's home playoff game against San Francisco. He has not played since spraining his MCL against New Orleans in Week 14. It should come as no surprise that wide receiver Steve Smith is active. (Charlotte Observer)
FF Today's Take: Stewart was expected to play today so this comes as a bit of a surprise. DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert will continue handling running back duties for the Panthers. Smith (knee) is not a recommended fantasy play.

Arizona's backup running back got his feet wet this year. He'll be a much bigger part of the game plan in 2014. Don't forget the name.

Missed practice all week
Ryan Mathews (ankle) was absent from practice. He hasn't practiced this week. Last Sunday in the 27-10 playoff victory over the Bengals, Mathews didn't play after a carry early in the third quarter. The Chargers are expected to have a light practice Saturday. They will face the Broncos on Sunday afternoon (1:40 Pacific Time) in Denver. (San Diego News Tribune)
FF Today's Take: This is a step in the wrong direction for Mathews and while he's expected to play, it will be hard to trust him in playoff or daily leagues this week.

Cory addresses a deep free-agent wide receiver class and orders them from worst to first in terms of how coveted they will be on the market in relation to their potential fantasy football value.

New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas was back at practice Thursday after missing almost two full weeks, and Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, with a chest injury. Although Thomas practiced in a limited capacity, it was his first sighting at practice since Week 17. (Times Picayune)
FF Today's Take: There's very little known about Thomas' chest injury and his status for Saturday's game remains uncertain. If he's unable to go, Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson will handle the bulk of rushing duties against the Seahawks.

Coached RBs last season
As Jay Gruden was introduced as the Washington Redskins head coach, the Bengals named Hue Jackson as their new offensive coordinator. Jackson has spent five seasons, including the last two, on the Cincinnati coaching staff. He was the running backs coach and special assistant to head coach Marvin Lewis this past season. (Cincinnati Enquirer)
FF Today's Take: Jackson has served as offensive coordinator for the Redskins, Falcons and Raiders. He was also man who oversaw Darren McFadden's best season in Oakland. Given his success with the Raiders, it is not hard to make the case that he might actually be an upgrade over Jay Gruden, the man Jackson is replacing. A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard could actually see their fantasy stock increase under Jackson, so fantasy owners should be happy about this hire.

WR played in one regular-season game
WR Percy Harvin said he "absolutely" expects to play on Saturday. (Liz Mathews on Twitter)
FF Today's Take: Harvin's return would certainly provide an interesting dynamic to the Seahawks-Saints game this weekend, but it would be stunning if he served as much more than a decoy and played more than 15-20 offensive snaps.

Sprained left knee
Panthers HC Ron Rivera echoed Steve Smith's latest update on his sprained left knee after Thursday's practice. "Fifty-seven percent, that's what (Smith) told me," Rivera said, laughing. Smith was still limited during Thursday's practice, although Rivera said Smith received more reps than Wednesday. "He's not his normal self yet," Rivera said. "But he was out there." (Charlotte Observer)
FF Today's Take: Although Cam Newton has seemingly turned to Greg Olsen as his top passing-game option in recent weeks, the Panthers cannot afford to be without Smith this weekend. The veteran receiver is the one receiver that still consistently strikes fear into the heart of opposing defenses, so his absence could make Carolina a more limited offensive team than it already is.
