While March Madness in full effect, the NFL has taken themselves off the center stage and the transaction pace set earlier in the month has fallen off the wayside, much like the 49ers franchise. But there are few tidbits that are Fantasy Football related, and the first one is: What exactly will happen with father-of-the-year Adrian Peterson? It’s no secret that he doesn’t want to be playing for the Vikings (dat victim card tho), and while the child abuse allegations are still very serious, it’s hard for the team not to dream of an emerging Teddy Bridgewater having Peterson in the backfield. Especially since another team trading for the embattled back would mean giving up multiple first round picks and absorbing a 60-million-dollar contact, well, it just seems more and more that this is just posturing by Adrian Peterson and his agent. Or whining. While it might be fun to think about him running behind the Cowboys line or being matched up with Tom Brady, or the ultimate karma and being traded to the Raiders, I find it hard to believe that he’ll be anywhere but Minnesota when the season starts. Which, in terms of fantasy football, isn’t the worst case. Not even close. I’ll be talking a lot about Bridgewater leading up to the start of the season, but I liked what I saw last year and think the Vikings could surprise a lot of people. Granted, we’re still early in the offseason, but even though he went from Purple Jesus to Purple Satan, it’s telling that he’s still Purple…

Dwayne Bowe has signed with the Browns, and looks to follow in the footsteps of Miles Austin, and that’s continue the journey away from fantasy relevance. The Chiefs obviously had issues getting touchdowns with their receiving core, but at least they had a functional quarterback and dynamic offense. Well, at least when you compare it to the Browns.

The Bills signed Charles Clay away from the Dolphins, which seems like a step back for his value. You’d probably want a quarterback at some point, right Buffalo?

The Cardinals signed Nathan Slaughter out of the Veteran’s combine. He’s a short receiver but also posted the fastest run time at the combine. You’d figure the Patriots would have been all over this, with their Danny Woodhead/Deion Branch history. I’m not sure if it’s relevant, as he was the 75th cut on the Jaguars last season and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been cut until 74…
