Around the NFL: Wayne Gallman

All of the early drafts where those who selected Mike Davis backed him up with Qadree Ollison are now flawed. Atlanta signed Wayne Gallman yesterday and kicked Ollison to the curb. It gives them two of the league's top-performing backups who became starters a year ago.   more »

Falcons sign free agent Patterson, cut RB Smith

The Atlanta Falcons signed kick returner CORDARRELLE PATTERSON on Thursday and the team is planning to have him play at the running back position. Patterson was drafted in 2013 as aMore wide receiver, but the versatile veteran has made his mark on special teams. Running back ITO SMITH finished last season atop the depth chart but was released by the Falcons on Thursday. Atlanta has not re-signed TODD GURLEY, last season’s starter, or backup BRIAN HILL.

Around the NFL: Mike Davis

When we talk about the difficulty running backs have getting paid in today's NFL, we often look at the big names; the LeVeon Bell types who have to patiently take a beating for years before finally cashing in (if they're lucky). But there are plenty of smaller names who seldom get paid, or appreciated. Like journeyman Mike Davis.   more »

Ian Allan: Backup running backs

It hasn’t been a good year for backup running backs. That’s a position that I always put a priority on in drafts, trying to latch onto players who are an injury away from being valuable fantasy assets. But most of those guys missed this season.  more »

Around the NFL: Do we like Mike?

It's the start of the fantasy playoffs for many, and those who drafted Christian McCaffrey No. 1 overall and somehow snuck into the postseason anyway were hoping to have him back and leading their offense this week. Well, not so fast.   more »



Depleted Panthers shut out Lions

The Carolina Panthers were without starting quarterback TEDDY BRIDGEWATER (knee) and starting running back CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY (shoulder) for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. Despite the depleted lineup, the Panthers managedMore a shutout against the Lions. Backup quarterback P.J.
