1.Ben Koyack: Battling for roster spot (RotoWire) Koyack is battling for a roster spot ahead of the 2019 season, Phillip Heiman of the Florida Times-Union reports. Analysis: Heiman's early roster projection does not include Koyack. Instead, he lists James O'Shaughnessy as the favorite to land the No. 3 role behind offseason addition Geoff Swaim and third-round rookie Josh Oliver. There's plenty of time for Koyack to make his bid for a spot on the 53-man roster, though, and it's not impossible that Jacksonville carries four tight ends into the regular season. In seven games with the Jaguars last year, Koyack logged 111 offensive snaps without seeing a single target in the passing gam... (More)13 minutes
2.Joshua Perkins: On roster bubble (RotoWire) Perkins appears to be on the roster bubble ahead of the 2019 season, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports. Analysis: Entering his fourth season in the league, Perkins has appeared in only 17 games for the Eagles and Falcons over his career and caught eight passes for 109 yards and a score along the way. He's coming off a 2018 campaign in which the tight end finished the year on injured reserve, but Perkins has since returned to team drills this spring, according to Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger. Now healthy, the challenge for Perkins this summer will be to unseat Richard Rodgers for the No. 3 role.13 minutes
3.Michael Roberts: Claimed by Green Bay (RotoWire) The Packers claimed Roberts off waivers Monday, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The Lions tried trading Roberts to the Patriots last week for a conditional seventh-round draft pick, but the transaction fell through due to a failed physical, and the original team ultimately waived the tight end. Now with the Packers, he finds himself within another crowded depth chart topped by Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis and third-round rookie Jace Sternberger. Roberts likely will need to string together an impressive training camp and preseason in order to crack the 53-man roster ahead of Week 1. In 23 games for Detroit over the past... (More)17 minutes
4.Jordan Lasley: Uneven minicamp showing (RotoWire) Lasley struggled during Baltimore's mandatory minicamp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The second-year receiver out of UCLA needs to make a strong impression this offseason after not seeing the field as a rookie. Unfortunately, Lasley is not off to a good start in that regard and the team's restocked receiver room puts him further down the depth chart. If healthy, rookies Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin figure to start alongside Willie Snead, leaving Lasley to battle for a reserve position. Beyond that trio, veterans like Seth Roberts and Michael Floyd will also have strong cases at making the 53-man roster, and fell... (More)32 minutes
5.Buddy Howell: Headed for special-teams role (RotoWire) Howell is expected to play a significant role on special teams in 2019, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports. "I just know they want me here for special teams, to make an impact on special teams. So, that's my thing. If it get a carry, that's a bonus for me," the running back said. Analysis: The 23-year-old Howell is entering his second season in the league after going undrafted out of Florida Atlantic in 2018. He carved out a special-teams role ahead of his rookie season and ultimately logged the fifth-most snaps (265) in that area for Houston last year. However, he only saw three snaps on offense without logging a singl... (More)49 minutes
6.Packers add TE Michael Roberts off waive... (Rotoworld) Packers signed TE Michael Roberts. Analysis: Initially thought to be heading to the Patriots for a seventh-round selection before he failed his physical, Roberts will now land with the Packers off waivers in a crowded tight end room behind Jimmy Graham and promising third-rounder Jace Sternberger. Oft-injured early in his career, the 2017 fourth-rounder hauled in a mere nine catches for 100 yards and three scores last season. Green Bay also recently added former Jags TE Pharoah McKever.1 hour
7.NO has had 'some conversations' with Tho... (Rotoworld) Saints GM Mickey Loomis said the team and Michael Thomas "had some conversations" about an extension. Analysis: "Yeah, listen, we’ve had some conversations, and I like keeping that close to the vest until there’s something to report," Loomis said. "Look, we love what Mike’s done for us. He’s a fantastic player, one of the best at his position in the league, and hopefully we can keep him as a Saint for a longtime as well." It's possible the Saints choose to franchise tag him in the offseason, but Thomas will likely land a contract upwards of $20 million ... (More)1 hour
8.Robert Davis: Headed for PUP list (RotoWire) Davis (knee) likely will start the regular season on the PUP list, Jake Kring-Schreifels and Kyle Stackpole of redskins.com report. Analysis: Davis suffered a devastating injury last August, fracturing his tibia and tearing three major ligaments (ACL, PCL, LCL) in his right knee. He said in February that he didn't expect to be ready for training camp, perhaps hinting at a third consecutive redshirt season after he spent most of his rookie year on the practice squad and all of 2018 on injured reserve. Davis was one of the stars of the 2017 combine, running a 4.44-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds, and placing first or second... (More)2 hours
9.Josh McCown joins ESPN as NFL studio ana... (Rotoworld) Josh McCown was hired by ESPN as an NFL studio analyst. Analysis: "I am excited to make the transition into broadcasting with ESPN which will allow me to still be involved with the game I love," McCown said. "I look forward to bringing ESPN viewers the unique insights that I have gained throughout my career." This transition was fully expected following the 17-year veteran's announcement in The Players' Tribune Monday morning. He's currently contracted to appear on NFL Live, SportsCenter, Get Up!, and more.2 hours
10.Report: Caserio 'wants out' of New Engla... (Rotoworld) The Boston Globe believes Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio "wants out" of New England. Analysis: Reporter Ben Volin seems to mostly be connecting the obvious dots, which is that the Pats had to invoke a clause in Caserio's contract and file tampering charges to prevent him from interviewing with the Texans. Per Volin, "every sign points to Caserio landing with the Texans next offseason." Caserio's Patriots contract runs through next spring's draft. Ever the iconoclast, Bill Belichick appears perfectly content to force Caserio to "play out" his deal. 3 hours
11.Josh McCown: Announces retirement (RotoWire) McCown announced his retirement from football Monday in an article for The Players' Tribune. Analysis: A 2002 third-round pick, McCown spent time with 10 different teams in 17 NFL seasons, going 23-53-0 as a starter. He had his best statistical campaign at age 38, completing 67.3 percent of his passes for 2,926 yards and 18 touchdowns on a 2017 Jets squad that entered its season as a clear favorite to land the No. 1 overall pick. McCown's solid performance dropped the Jets lower in the draft order for 2018, but they still managed to obtain Sam Darnold, who now is backed up by Trevor Siemian. McCown will turn 40 in July and shouldn't ... (More)3 hours
12.Elijah McGuire: Could be caught in roster crunch (RotoWire) McGuire will have to earn a roster spot in camp, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports. Analysis: Stypulkoski's prediction for the roster has McGuire on the outside looking in, but the 25-year-old running back still has plenty of time to change that outlook during training camp and the preseason. The Jets are unlikely to carry five running backs when the season starts, meaning one of Bilal Powell, Ty Montgomery, Trenton Cannon or McGuire will likely be on the chopping block with new starter Le'Veon Bell assured the top spot on the depth chart. Montgomery can also play wide receiver while Cannon could morph into an ace on special teams, ... (More)3 hours
13.Jake Kumerow: Impressing Rodgers again (RotoWire) Kumerow has the continued support of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has commented on the wide receiver a number of times over the past year, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports. "Obviously, I'm a big fan of [Kumerow]," Rodgers said last week. "I don't think I need to keep going on that." Analysis: Kumerow bounced around NFL practice squads from 2015 to 2017, spending time with the Bengals, Patriots and Packers. He made his bid for a roster spot in Green Bay last August, catching six passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns in two preseason games before a shoulder injury sent him to injured reserve. Kumerow retur... (More)3 hours
14.Trenton Cannon: On roster bubble (RotoWire) Cannon will have to battle for a roster spot in camp, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports. Analysis: New York's roster battle at running back will likely come down to the preseason, as the Jets currently have five capable bodies in camp and are unlikely to keep them all. Cannon played well in coverage on special teams as a rookie last season and has the potential to turn into a dangerous returner if he can curb his fumbling issues, making him a strong fit for the back end of the roster. He'll need to beat out at least one of Bilal Powell, Ty Montgomery or Elijah McGuire behind starter Le'Veon Bell.3 hours
15.Todd Gurley dealing with an 'arthritic component to his knee' (FantasyPros) Todd Gurley's trainer says the running back is dealing with an "arthritic component to his knee". Analysis: Gurley's knee continues to be the most important fantasy story line of the off-season. His trainer stressed that Gurley hasn't been told that the team wants to limit his workload at all, but the Rams' off-season actions paint a different picture. The All-Pro running back is still expected to participate in on-field drills at training camp, which is a good sign.3 hours
16.Ty Montgomery: Will compete for roster spot (RotoWire) Montgomery will have to earn a roster spot in camp, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports. Analysis: With New York bringing back veteran Bilal Powell, the team is set up for a healthy running back competition behind Le'Veon Bell. Stypulkoski believes Montgomery's ability to shift to wide receiver in a pinch should help earn him the inside track for one of the available spots behind Bell, but the team almost certainly won't keep all of Bell, Powell, Montgomery, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon.3 hours
17.Le'Veon Bell: Still building chemistry in NY (RotoWire) Bell participated in only two spring practices with the Jets, so he's still in the process of building chemistry with quarterback Sam Darnold and the rest of his new teammates, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports. Analysis: Bell opted to work out on his own versus participating in voluntary OTAs, so he hasn't shared the field with his new teammates much as of yet. With training camp and the preseason still to come, the superstar running back still has plenty of time to familiarize himself with his new situation in the Big Apple after sitting out all of the 2018 season for the Steelers. Bell plays a crucial role as a receiver out of th... (More)3 hours
18.Dante Pettis 'turned heads' in 49ers min... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Bay Area reports Dante Pettis "turned the right heads at 49ers minicamp last week." Analysis: "Dante’s body is maturing," Jimmy Garoppolo said. "He’s coming out of breaks with power, he has speed. It doesn’t look like he’s moving very fast but really is. ... He’s different than most guys running." Where Garoppolo praised Pettis' physical improvement, coach Kyle Shanahan noted it on the mental side. "He worked more at his routes and he came here with the idea of ‘Hey, I’m not just coming here to get better back in shape, I’m coming ... (More)4 hours
19.Josh McCown retires after 17 seasons in ... (Rotoworld) Free agent QB Josh McCown has announced his retirement after 17 seasons in the NFL. Analysis: McCown made the announcement in a post on The Players' Tribune. One of the league's longest-tenured players, McCown had a long, strange trip of a career that mostly saw him holding down backup duties before a late dalliance in starting. His best season came as Jay Cutler's fill-in for the 2013 Bears. That earned him a second life as a bridge-type quarterback. Revered everywhere he's played, McCown was pursued for coaching opportunities before he even retired. He will have his pick of jobs if he ... (More)4 hours
20.Gurley's trainer confirms arthritic cond... (Rotoworld) Todd Gurley's trainer confirmed the running back is dealing with an "arthritic component to his knee." Analysis: "Everybody knew when Todd came out of Georgia that there would be some kind of arthritic component to his knee," trainer Travelle Gaines told CBS Sports. "He's now at the year-five mark, all we're doing is managing that." Gaines also said he has not been told the Rams plan to limit Gurley's workload to keep him fresh, although their offseason moves paint a pretty clear picture. Gurley is a risk-reward pick early in the second round.5 hours
21.Joe Mixon: Expecting big things (RotoWire) Mixon has high hopes for the Bengals under new coach Zac Taylor, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Analysis: The Cincinnati defense doesn't look much different, but there's legitimate cause for optimism on Mixon's side of the ball after both he and Tyler Boyd enjoyed breakout seasons in 2018. With Andy Dalton, Tyler Eifert (ankle) and A.J. Green (toe) all expected to be ready for training camp, the Bengals have a strong group of skill-position players for Taylor and offensive coordinator Brian Callahan to work with. The offensive line appears less promising, though first-round pick Jonah Williams and free-agent signing John Miller do give ... (More)5 hours
22.Mike Williams: Excited for bigger role (RotoWire) Williams said he's confident in handling an expanded role after the Chargers lost Tyrell Williams to the Raiders, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports. "I'm a lot more confident coming out here and playing," (Mike) Williams said. "My role is going to expand with Tyrell leaving. A lot more balls coming my way. I'm looking forward to it." Analysis: With the 2017 first-round pick coming off a season that included 10 touchdown catches on 66 targets, the Chargers didn't appear interested in re-signing Tyrell Williams at market value. Mike Williams now steps in as th... (More)6 hours
23.Aaron Colvin earns praise for his offsea... (Rotoworld) Texans coach Bill O'Brien praised CB Aaron Colvin's work this offseason. Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $34 million deal last March, Colvin had a disastrous first season in Houston which included six missed games because of an ankle injury and finished with him as a healthy scratch in the playoffs. Colvin is back to full health, however, and making his case for a spot in the starting lineup. Given what Houston lost in the secondary, it would not be a surprise if Colvin won the slot corner job.7 hours
24.Mark Andrews: Stands out during offseason (RotoWire) Andrews made "a ton of plays" during offseason practices, looking bigger, stronger and faster than he was last year, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. Analysis: The 256-pound tight end already provided ample evidence of his athleticism, averaging 11.0 yards on 50 targets last season after running a 4.67 40-yard dash at the combine. He served as the receiving threat in a timeshare during his rookie campaign, lining up as an in-line tight end for 174 of his 444 snaps (39.2 percent), while Nick Boyle (74.1 percent) and Hayden Hurst (56.1 percent) handled more traditional TE roles. Andrews still appears stuck in the same timesha... (More)7 hours
25.Ian Thomas: Still not practicing (RotoWire) Thomas (leg) was limited to rehab work during mandatory minicamp, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Thomas rode a stationary bike on the sideline while watching his teammates practice. There hasn't been any suggestion of a serious injury, with coach Ron Rivera saying he's hopeful the second-year pro will be ready for training camp. Thomas averaged four catches for 36.7 yards on six targets in six starts last season, typically handling a three-down role when Greg Olsen wasn't available. The 34-year-old is healthy and now has clearance for all football activities, but his recent history of foot injuries hints that Thomas ma... (More)7 hours
26.Jarvis Landry: Plays softball despite injury (RotoWire) Landry (undisclosed) played in the charity softball game he hosted Saturday, Nick Shook of the Browns' official website reports. Analysis: Landry presumably would've been a spectator at the event if his undisclosed injury were anything serious. Despite missing most of OTAs and all of mandatory minicamp, he should be ready for the start of training camp in late July. The 26-year-old struggled in a more downfield-focused role last season, catching just 54.4 percent of his targets for 6.6 YPT while posting an average depth of target (10.9) far above anything from his Miami days. The addition of Odell Beckham Jr. should allow Landry to r... (More)7 hours
27.Ryan Switzer: Shines during OTAs (RotoWire) Switzer was impressive during spring practices while competing with Eli Rogers for slot work, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The competition between Rogers and Switzer could lead to a role with regular targets if the Steelers primarily use JuJu Smith-Schuster outside. That calculation likely depends on a number of factors, including the team's confidence in Donte Moncrief, James Washington and/or Diontae Johnson -- a trio competing for snaps outside. In any case, Switzer has a good shot to earn a spot on the 53-man roster, with his ability to return punts and kickoffs potentially creating a role even if he ultimately ... (More)8 hours
28.Donte Moncrief: Favorite for No. 2 job (RotoWire) Moncrief has an early lead for the No. 2 wide receiver spot, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The Steelers should have open competition behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, with some of their decisions based on how often they want to use their best receiver in the slot. Regardless, there will be at least one outside job open for the taking, and Moncrief reportedly has an early lead over James Washington and Diontae Johnson. Kaboly already is calling it a "slam dunk" that Moncrief is the No. 2 receiver, but we prefer a more cautious approach with training camp and the preseason still to come. That said, Steelers quarterback Ben R... (More)8 hours
29.Maurice Harris: Making case for roster spot (RotoWire) Harris looked good throughout OTAs and minicamp, Jeff Howe and Nick Underhill of The Athletic report. Analysis: Howe and Underhill both put Harris on their way-too-early projection for the 53-man roster, while Dontrelle Inman is left off and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) is projected for the PUP list. The contracts hint at a slightly different picture, with Inman receiving $300,000 guaranteed and Harris getting just $90,000. The Patriots have a host of wide receivers competing for one or two spots behind Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry, Phillip Dorsett and special teamer Matthew Slater. An impressive spring won't mean much if Harris fails... (More)8 hours
30.Ronald Jones wants to get on the right t... (Rotoworld) Ronald Jones is looking to get back on the "right track." Analysis: It would have been tough for Jones' rookie season to go any worse, but he has earned nothing but praise from the new coaching staff and his teammates so far this offseason. He is also confident he can turn things around. "I’m definitely ready and I can’t wait to get the most of those opportunities," Jones said, "but I’ve just got to showing them that I can be a dependable player and they can count on me in critical situations." Nothing can be taken for granted after his rookie season, bu... (More)9 hours
31.Mark Andrews looks bigger, stronger, fas... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes Ravens TE Mark Andrews "looks bigger, stronger, and faster." Analysis: Despite being drafted a couple of rounds after Hayden Hurst, Andrews made a much larger impact as a rookie with 34 catches for 552 yards and three touchdowns. According to Zrebiec, Andrews has continued that form into the offseason program. The passing game probably needs to improve for Andrews to return consistent fantasy value, but he is a fine TE2 flier in deeper leagues.9 hours
32.New GM: Robby Anderson a 'pleasant surpr... (Rotoworld) New Jets GM Joe Douglas called Robby Anderson a "very pleasant surprise." Analysis: Before interviewing, Douglas watched six games of the Jets offense and came away impressed by Anderson. "He's a tough weapon for defenses to match up with," Douglas said, "he can get behind you and he can challenge the defense vertically." Anderson finished last season strongly, catching 23 passes for 336 yards and three touchdowns in the four games after Sam Darnold returned from injury. Especially if Darnold takes another step forward, Anderson could end up outplaying his ... (More)9 hours
33.Michael Pierce owns up to conditioning i... (Rotoworld) Ravens NT Michael Pierce took responsibility for his conditioning issues. Analysis: "I, honestly, just mismanaged my running a little bit," Pierce told WNSP. "At the end of the day, you expect a team leader to come back in better shape than I did." Pierce was removed from practice last week because of his conditioning, and he reportedly looked "much heavier" than his listed weight of 340 pounds. The talented lineman has a lot of work to do before training camp opens.9 hours
34.Roethlisberger looking forward to 'norma... (Rotoworld) Ben Roethlisberger is looking forward to getting back to "normalcy." Analysis: Contract issues and internal squabbles have been a fixture in Pittsburgh over the last few years, and reporting suggests Roethlisberger played his fair share in the drama. While Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown leaving does create a quieter locker room, it also means Roethlisberger will be without two of the most talented players in the league. JuJu Smith-Schuster is there to pick up the slack, but it would not be surprising if Roethlisberger takes a step back this year.10 hours
35.Dynasty | Mike Williams role to expand (Dynasty League Football) With Tyrell Williams now in Oakland, Mike Williams' role should be expanded in 2019 Analysis: Williams totaled 43 receptions, 554 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018, as a part-time player. Combine that with an 83.7% first-down conversion rate and it's no wonder there are upside predictions for Williams in 2019. Williams is entering his third year in the league after being drafted seventh overall in 2017. Injuries and a full depth chart slowed his progress, but the 24 year old found success down the stretch to close the 2018 campaign, inc... (More)15 hours
36.Dynasty | Randall Cobb early connection with Dak (Dynasty League Football) Dak Prescott has formed an early connection with former Packer receiver Randall Cobb Analysis: Cobb will work out of the slot in replacement for the departed Cole Beasley. While Prescott didn't come out and say explicitly, that Cobb is an upgrade over Beasley, it's not hard to read between his lines: "You take something, approach something, go out there and he does it right the first time. When you have a guy like that, it allows you to cut the ball loose; it allows you to anticipate. It allows you to trust he’s going to be ... (More)15 hours
37.Marvin Lewis not planning on an NFL retu... (Rotoworld) Ex-Bengals coach Marvin Lewis doesn't think he will return to coaching in the NFL.1 day
38.Garrett Celek facing 'big odds' to make ... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco believes Garrett Celek "faces some pretty big odds at this stage of his career to remain on the team." Analysis: Celek is dealing with a multitude of injuries right now, but none bigger than his back injury that required offseason surgery. Since he's not expected to be cleared until "at least" training camp, Celek being cut wouldn't come as much of a surprise. Celek's 2019 status will have zero effect on George Kittle.1 day
39.Nate Sudfield 'had a rough go in the spr... (Rotoworld) Nate Sudfield has "had a rough go in the spring" according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt. Analysis: Sudfield is Carson Wentz's backup, but he's not a great one, especially in comparison to Nick Foles. Rosenblatt said he'll be concerned if Sudfield doesn't improve in training camp, but it's still unlikely the Eagles do anything notable about their quarterback depth at this point in the offseason.1 day
40.'Premature' to expect Sanders to be PHI'... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt said it's "premature" to expect second-round RB Miles Sanders to become the Eagles No. 1 running back. Analysis: Sanders has been sidelined since the start of OTAs, and Rosenblatt believes he's now "behind the eight-ball." Coach Doug Pederson said the plan is to "slowly work him into the mix and see just how he can help us on game day." The Eagles have a stable of veterans -- Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, etc. -- but none are good enough to keep Sanders off the field when he's caught up and healthy. The question i... (More)1 day
41.Eagles WR JJAW should contribute 'right ... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt believes second-round WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside "should be able to contribute right away." Analysis: Arcega-Whiteside is now the unquestioned No. 4 receiver behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor. The depth chart is crowded, but the coaching staff is trying to find ways to get him on the field at practice. The Eagles have given JJAW reps in the slot this offseason, even though he almost exclusively played outside at Stanford where he dominated downfield and in the red zone. Arcega-Whiteside is a name to remember if one of the Eagles' st... (More)1 day
42.Mike Williams bracing for an 'expanded r... (Rotoworld) Mike Williams expects to have an "expanded role" this season. Analysis: Drafted seventh overall in 2017 following a standout career at Clemson, Williams labored through an injury-plagued rookie campaign before breaking out for a team-high 10 touchdowns in 2018. He only drew 66 targets, though that number figures to rise significantly following the departure of Tyrell Williams this offseason. "I feel I’m going to get a lot more opportunities than I did last year," said Williams of his role in the Chargers' post-Tyrell passing attack. "A lot more balls coming my ... (More)1 day
43.Campbell 'in the mix' for No. 3 WR dutie... (Rotoworld) According to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan, Colts second-round WR Parris Campbell "should be in the mix" for No. 3 receiver duties in Indianapolis this year. Analysis: The Colts' receiving depth chart remains unsettled behind locked-in starters T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. Campbell enters training camp with a chance to carve out a role as Indy's third receiver, though with Hilton and Funchess in front of him along with tight ends Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle, the former Buckeye could struggle for consistent targets in a suddenly dense Colts receiving corps.1 day
44.Tom Brady not sweating contract status (Rotoworld) Tom Brady said he isn't worried about his contract status. Analysis: He's entering the final year of his current contract, though Brady, who has routinely taken less money to help the Patriots fill other needs, is confident New England will take care of him when the time is right. "I think those things work themselves out," said the three-time MVP earlier this month at mandatory minicamp. Going on 42, Brady is coming off another productive season, though he'll have his work cut out for him without Rob Gronkowski in 2019.1 day
45.O'Brien says Roby 'hasn't done much' (Rotoworld) Texans coach Bill O'Brien admitted CB Bradley Roby "hasn't done much" this offseason. Analysis: He means that quite literally as Roby missed much of the team's offseason program while recovering from a "soft-tissue" injury. Roby was back for the Texans' mandatory minicamp this month, but clearly that wasn't a big enough sample size for O'Brien to evaluate his new secondary piece. "We'll just have to see in training camp," said the sixth-year head coach. After spending the first five years of his career in Denver, Roby defected to the Texans in free agency t... (More)1 day
46.N'Keal Harry 'didn't have the best minic... (Rotoworld) According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Patriots first-round WR N'Keal Harry "didn't have the best minicamp." Analysis: Per Volin, Harry struggled to get open against Stephon Gilmore and also made "a handful of mental mistakes" including lining up in the wrong spot. Struggling against a first-team All-Pro in Gilmore is understandable, though it's worth noting that Harry's separation skills, or lack thereof, were the biggest knock on him coming out of Arizona State. The good news is that Harry received a ton of reps this offseason and still has plenty of time to l... (More)1 day
47.Ramsey won't give Jacksonville a discoun... (Rotoworld) Jalen Ramsey said he has no plans to give the Jaguars a hometown discount. Analysis: Ramsey had been looking for a new contract this offseason, but the Jaguars stonewalled him, which didn't sit well with the two-time Pro Bowler. "Next year, especially after I ball, they’re going to come to me, ‘Can’t we get a little discount, 20 percent off?’" said the disgruntled corner at last week's mandatory minicamp. "I’m going to tell them last year you could have gotten that discount. This year, I’m going to need all of that." When his contract is up, Ramsey will probabl... (More)1 day
48.Smith fined $88K for blowing off minicam... (Rotoworld) Jaguars LB Telvin Smith was fined $88,650 for skipping last week's mandatory minicamp. Analysis: Smith, who confirmed the news himself on his Instagram story, was fined $14,775 for the first day, $29,550 for the second and $44,325 for the third and final day of Jags minicamp. The 2014 fifth-rounder announced last month that he would be taking the season off to "get his world in order," though his locker at the team's facility remains intact. It's possible Smith files retirement paperwork, which would prevent him from future fines while giving Jacksonville an additional $9.75 m... (More)1 day
49.Dynasty | Kerryon Johnson could have 60 catches (Dynasty League Football) The Detroit Free Press is predicting Kerryon Johnson will be used more in the passing game and finish with 60 catches. Analysis: While you should take local media stat projections with a grain of salt, it isn't a huge stretch to think Johnson could hit that total. As a rookie Johnson had 32 receptions in just 10 games and, as the article from the DFP hinted at, Theo Riddick is not a lock to make the roster. If the Lions were to let Riddick go, Johnson would be in line for even more work in the passing game as his primary back up, C.J. Ande... (More)1 day
50.Dynasty | David Montgomery ADP is rising (Dynasty League Football) Rookie running back David Montgomery continues to see wind in his ADP sails following his selection by the Chicago Bears in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Montgomery's dynasty ADP currently rests at 46, near the end of the fourth round in start-up drafts and continues to rise. In April, his ADP was 73 followed by up an uptick to 64 in May. The Bears moved on from Jordan Howard who never quite fit the new offense. With Tarik Cohen still a valuable asset, the Bears used the draft to tab an early down thumper but with some three down upside.... (More)1 day
51.Dynasty | Trayveon Williams says league will pay (Dynasty League Football) Rookie running back Trayveon Williams says "the league will pay" and he expects to "have a day one impact" after he was selected in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: If Williams' game day performance can match his hubris, the Bengals may have an upside player on their hands. During camp, reports were that Williams received a "ton of work" while Mixon was out and fellow rookie Rodney Anderson continues to recover from an ACL injury. Veteran runner Giovani Bernard is still in the mix as Mixon... (More)2 days
52.Dynasty | Daniel Jones the real deal (Dynasty League Football) ESPN analyst Chris Mortensen said early skeptics of rookie quarterback Daniel Jones now believe he's the "real deal" after watching him in camp. Analysis: Dave Gettleman came under fire once again when the Giants selected Jones sixth overall in the 2019 rookie draft. It's wasn't so much that Jones isn't a talent as it was most believe he would have been available much later in the first round. But the old adage of the draft is if you fall in love with a player, go get'em or be prepared to lose him. Gettleman... (More)2 days
53.Landry (undisclosed) plays in softball g... (Rotoworld) Jarvis Landry (undisclosed) participated in his charity softball game Saturday. Analysis: "I don’t know if I’ll hit but I’ll definitely be in the field," he said. Landry skipped all of Cleveland's offseason workouts (including mandatory minicamp) with an undisclosed injury, but appears healthy enough to play defense at his charity softball game. We fully expect Landry to be a full participant from Day One at Brown training camp in July.2 days
54.David Morgan: Undergoes minor knee surgery (RotoWire) Morgan recently underwent minor arthroscopic knee surgery to clean up a lingering injury and should be ready for training camp, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: Morgan injured his knee last season, but was still dealing with lingering issues from it. As a result, he opted to play it safe with the surgery in order to in order to ensure his health going forward. He is projected to provide depth at tight end this season.2 days
55.Vikings CB Trae Waynes an extension cand... (Rotoworld) St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson reports Vikings CBs Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander are candidates for extensions. Analysis: Minnesota has $4.687 million of cap space after signing Rudolph to a four-year, $36 million extension, which included lowering his 2019 cap number from $7.625 million to $3.55 million. Waynes, who's coincidently represented by Rudolph's agent, is set to make $9.069 million in the final year of his deal. The former No. 11 overall pick in the 2015 draft has yet to live up to his potential, but a potential extension can still be sorted out if he plays beyo... (More)2 days
56.Randall Cobb: Showing early chemistry with Dak (RotoWire) Cobb has formed a quick connection with Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. Analysis: Early indications are that the former Packer may be used in different packages than departed slot receiver Cole Beasley, getting more opportunities in the running game on reverses and jet sweeps in addition to routes underneath and over the middle. Cobb isn't likely to see an increase in workload in Dallas, however -- Beasley averaged 5.3 targets per game over the last three seasons, less than Cobb's 6.4 over that same time frame in Green Bay, and second-year receiver Michael Gallup will also be pushing... (More)2 days
57.Panthers TE Ian Thomas could return for ... (Rotoworld) Panthers TE Ian Thomas (leg) could be ready for training camp. Analysis: Thomas has been sidelined for most of the offseason. His Week 1 status isn't in doubt, but he's looking legitimately questionable for camp. Thomas held his own in seven rookie-year starts and is locked in as Greg Olsen's handcuff.2 days
58.John Ross struggling with consistency (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jay Morrison reports John Ross has struggled with consistency during spring practices. Analysis: This comes after teammate Tyler Boyd suggested Ross was still having trouble picking up the offense. Ross isn't off to a great start, though that's not surprising given his history of lapses. Playing under a new coaching staff, Ross is entering a make-or-break 2019.2 days
59.Christian Kirk has 'good feel' for offen... (Rotoworld) Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Christian Kirk has a "good feel" for the offense. Analysis: Kirk has been the Cardinals best receiver during the offseason program. He's fully over his foot issues and has the makings for a second-year breakout in an offense that should be among the most pass heavy in the league. Kirk offers good value at his seventh-round ADP.2 days
60.DeShon Elliott: Could earn roster spot (RotoWire) Elliott is making a good case for a roster spot during offseason minicamps, Baltimore's editorial director Ryan Mink reports. Analysis: Elliott spent his rookie season on injured reserve, but has made an impression so far during spring work. Coach Jim Harbaugh predicted the second-year safety is "going to make a mark." He is currently behind Tony Jefferson and Chuck Clark at strong safety on the team's depth chart.2 days
61.Cody Core: Healthy during spring work (RotoWire) Core (elbow) has been practicing during mandatory minicamp, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports. Analysis: Core suffered a dislocated left elbow in the Bengals' season finale against the Steelers. There has not been much news regarding the injury since, but he has been a full participant at mandatory minicamp. He will be batting to again earn a spot on special teams and as a depth receiver during training camp.2 days
62.Jason Verrett says he's 'on track' for c... (Rotoworld) 49ers CB Jason Verrett (Achilles) is targeting a training camp return. Analysis: Verrett is 11 months removed from his torn Achilles. He told reporters he's "on track" for camp, but he's likely going to start out limited if he gets cleared. Verrett was one of the top corners in the league before injuries wiped out his last three seasons. The 49ers are hoping he can regain enough form to start opposite Richard Sherman.2 days
63.Rico Gathers suspended one game for substance abuse (FantasyPros) Rico Gathers has been suspended by the NFL as a result of his arrest for marijuana possession in September of 2018. Analysis: There was a time when Gathers looked like a potential dynasty stash and upside TE to roster in dynasty formats. However, he's currently irrelevant for fantasy purposes as he's buried on the Cowboys' depth chart behind Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin, and Dalton Schultz.2 days
64.Trent Taylor 'learning a lot' from Wes W... (Rotoworld) The San Francisco Chronicle reports third-year WR Trent Taylor has improved under WR coach Wes Welker Analysis: This isn't a surprise — Taylor and Welker were similar players. Taylor never got fully over his 2017 back surgery last season, leading to a step back from his rookie year. He's been one of the standouts of OTAs now that he's healthy. Taylor is hard to get excited about, but he has the early edge over Richie James for the 49ers' slot role.2 days
65.Richie James behind Taylor for slot role (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports Richie James has fallen behind Trent Taylor for the starting slot role. Analysis: James showed flashes last year but finished with just 14 targets. The 49ers added rookies Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd this offseason, so even if Taylor fades, it's not going to be easy for James to hold off competition. James' special teams value should secure his roster spot.2 days
66.Jaguars DE Josh Allen gets in side work (Rotoworld) Jaguars DE Josh Allen (knee) got in some side work at minicamp. Analysis: Allen was expected to skip minicamp, so this suggests he's ahead of schedule. The Jaguars have been playing it safe with Allen to this point. Barring any setbacks, Allen should be full-go for the start of training camp.2 days
67.Chargers unsure on Okung's camp status (Rotoworld) ESPN's Eric Williams reports the Chargers "don't know" if Russell Okung will be ready for training camp. Analysis: Okung is sitting out minicamp with an undisclosed injury. There haven't been many updates, but It's serious enough the Chargers haven't put a timetable on his return. Sam Tevi will fill in at left tackle for Okung, with Trent Scott playing the right side.2 days
68.Dynasty | David Moore makes big jump (Dynasty League Football) Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll said sophomore receiver David Moore has "made a big jump" Analysis: Carroll, never known for hyperbole (as if), lauded Moore's flexibility and is now moving him around the formation, saying he's really "stepped up". With the departure of Doug Baldwin this off-season, there's a lot of targets to be spread around and Tyler Lockett is the only sure-thing among so many young receivers on the depth chart. Jaron Brown has also recently received praise and rookie DK Metcalf was... (More)2 days
69.DeAndre Baker signs rookie deal (Rotoworld) Giants signed No. 30 overall pick CB Deandre Baker to a four-year contract. Analysis: It includes a fifth-year option. The Giants traded up to get Baker at the end of Day 1. His aggressive style is a fit for DC James Bettcher's man-to-man scheme, though Baker played mostly zone in college. Baker has repped with the first and second teams during minicamp. He should be a Week 1 starter opposite Janoris Jenkins.2 days
70.Texans withdraw GM offer to Nick Caserio (Rotoworld) The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans have withdrawn their pursuit of Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio. Analysis: The Patriots have also dropped tampering charges. Caserio wasn't worth the draft pick compensation it likely would have taken to get a deal done. With Caserio out of the mix, the Texans may play out 2019 without a GM. Houston figures to take another shot at Caserio next offseason.3 days
71.Kapri Bibbs released by Packers (Rotoworld) Packers released RB Kapri Bibbs. Analysis: Bibbs wasn't needed after the Packers added sixth-round RB Dexter Williams. Getting release at this stage is never a good sign, but Bibbs has enough special teams value to resurface.3 days
72.Colts get third-rounder Bobby Okereke si... (Rotoworld) Colts signed third-round LB Bobby Okereke to a four-year contract. Analysis: The Colts have now signed their entire draft class. Okereke led Stanford with 96 tackles last season — playing a career-high 917 defensive snaps as an every-down linebacker. He has some lapses in coverage, but Okereke will push Anthony Walker for the starting MIKE job this summer.3 days
73.J.D. McKissic in line for 3rd-down work? (Rotoworld) Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times listed J.D. McKissic as one of three candidates competing to be the Seahawks' third-down running back. Analysis: He'll be competing with C.J. Prosise and sixth-round rookie Travis Homer. McKissic likely has a leg up on the others, particularly given Prosise's injury history, though Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny are both competent enough receivers to play on passing downs. Even as a late-round dart throw in fantasy leagues, McKissic doesn't offer much upside.3 days
74.Rico Gathers hit with one-game suspensio... (Rotoworld) NFL suspended TE Rico Gathers one game for violating the the league’s substance-abuse policy.3 days
75.Chargers get rookie class under contract (Rotoworld) Chargers signed third-round OT Trey Pipkins to a four-year contract. Analysis: The Chargers now have all seven picks under contract. A Division II All-American at Sioux Falls, Pipkins gives the Bolts tackle depth behind starters Russell Okung and Sam Tevi.3 days
76.Roberts waived after Pats trade falls th... (Rotoworld) Lions waived TE Michael Roberts. Analysis: It was reported Thursday that New England had acquired Roberts from Detroit for a seventh-round pick in 2020, but the deal fell through after he failed his physical. Regardless, his tenure with the Lions is over. The 2017 fourth-rounder snared nine-of-20 targets for 100 yards and three touchdowns over 159 offensive snaps last season.3 days
77.Dynasty | Daniel Brown a surprise standout (Dynasty League Football) Daniel Brown has been impressing coaches with his abilities as a receiver. Analysis: A converted wide receiver, Brown posted a 35/317/1 line between the 2016 and 2017 seasons, but became an after thought for the Bears with the addition of Trey Burton. Now joining the Jets, Brown could find himself as the TE2 on the depth chart, but is highly unlikely to surpass promising second year tight end Chris Herndon. Brown is a player to watch, and may offer some starting appeal during the first two weeks of the season as Chris Herndon serves a likely su... (More)3 days
78.Morgan (knee) on track for training camp (Rotoworld) David Morgan is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Analysis: The 2016 sixth-rounder logged 231 snaps as a blocking tight end last season. Morgan should be ready for the start of training camp next month, though even at full strength he's no better than third on the team's tight end depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and rookie second-rounder Irv Smith.3 days
79.Dexter Lawrence agrees to rookie contrac... (Rotoworld) Giants signed first-round DT Dexter Lawrence to a four-year contract. Analysis: As with all first-round picks, his contract includes a fifth-year option for 2023. The Giants also agreed to terms with first-round CB Deandre Baker on Friday, leaving first-round QB Daniel Jones and third-round DE Oshane Ximines as the team's only remaining unsigned picks.3 days
80.Byron Murphy in line to start? (Rotoworld) Cardinals second-round CB Byron Murphy could begin the year as a starter. Analysis: With Patrick Peterson serving a six-game suspension to begin, the Cardinals will need a starter opposite Robert Alford. Following David Amerson's release, that spot will likely come down to either Murphy or Tramaine Brock. Murphy received a vote of confidence from Peterson, who complimented the rookie's confidence and football IQ. "I’m very, very impressed with his checks, with his calls," said the veteran. "He’s confident with his checks and calls and when you have a rookie calling it o... (More)3 days
81.Bills sign third-round rookie TE Dawson ... (Rotoworld) Bills signed third-round TE Dawson Knox to a four-year contract. Analysis: The entire Bills rookie class is now under contract. After posting minimal production in an explosive Ole Miss offense, Knox (6'4/254) improved his draft stock by showing 4.58-speed and a 34.5-inch vertical at the Combine. Since being the No. 96 overall pick, Knox has worked with the first-team offense since Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom left camp with injuries. Bills GM Brandon Beane said, "He’s got upside."3 days
82.'Real chance' WR Jon'Vea Johnson makes t... (Rotoworld) Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill Jr. believes "there's a real chance" that undrafted rookie Jon'Vea Johnson makes the Cowboys final roster. Analysis: Johnson (5'11/188) has reportedly taken advantage of a few veterans missing practice, and he's caught the eye of the coaching staff while occasionally working with the first and second units. The undrafted rookie hails from Toledo, where he averaged 11.6 yards per target operating as a field stretcher with 4.40-speed and a 35-inch vertical. Johnson will need a nice preseason showing to ultimately make the team.3 days
83.Randall Cobb and Dak forming a 'connecti... (Rotoworld) Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill Jr. believes Randall Cobb and Dak Prescott "have formed a fast connection." Analysis: Prescott loves having a former quarterback as his slot receiver, and the duo has made strides working together this offseason. Clarence Hill believes Cobb will be a "huge addition" for the Cowboys, but there are questions if Cobb can stay healthy and if he will see enough volume to be a fantasy contributor with Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper dominating touches.3 days
84.Michael Roberts traded to Patriots (FantasyPros) The Detroit Lions have traded TE Michael Roberts to the New England Patriots for a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick. Analysis: Roberts becomes another acquisition for the Patriots in the passing game, and he may have some late-round fantasy upside. At 6-5, 265 pounds, he's a matchup problem in the red zone and could make an impact around the goal line. Matt LaCosse is likely to open the season as the starting TE, but with Benjamin Watson suspended the first four games of the season, Roberts could see his number called regularly. Although he's accumulated just 13 receptions for 146 receiving yards and three TDs in two NFL sea... (More)3 days
85.HOU employee alleges Gaine of racial fir... (Rotoworld) A former Texans security coordinator alleged ex-GM Brian Gaine of "targeting" African American employees. Analysis: The former security coordinator lists eight African American employees who were allegedly fired by Gaine as evidence. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is investigating the matter. The Houston Texans said the allegation had zero input into their decision to fire Gaine last week and opted to not comment further on the legal matter.3 days
86.Jets offensive pace is 'significantly hi... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Connor Hughes notes the Jets offensive pace is "significantly higher" than it was in prior years.3 days
87.Everett named the Rams' surprise standou... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Lindsey Thiry calls Gerald Everett the Rams' biggest surprise offseason standout. Analysis: Everett continues to show flashes of a long-term starting tight end, but he's been fairly inconsistent in his first two NFL seasons. Last year, Everett caught 33 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns while splitting some time with Tyler Higbee. There's some breakout appeal with Everett if he can separate from Higbee more this preseason, especially given the fantasy landscape at the position, but he's more likely to remain a streamer.3 days
88.Dolphins sign third-round OG Michael Dei... (Rotoworld) Dolphins signed third-round OG Michael Deiter to a four-year contract. Analysis: Deiter was the last drafted rookie to sign his contract for the Dolphins. The No. 78 overall pick made a school-record 54 starts at Wisconsin -- 24 at left guard, 16 at center, and 14 at left tackle -- and earned the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2018. However, Deiter tested as a 25th-percentile athlete at the Combine. Deiter's positional versatility raises his floor and clears a path for NFL starts early in his career.3 days
89.Chad Beebe is 'making a name for himself... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Courtney Cronin said Chad Beebe is "a possible front-runner for the Vikings' No. 3 receiver position." Analysis: Beebe spent most of the 2018 season on the practice squad after earning a spot at a Vikings tryout, but he was promoted to the 53-man roster late last season when Stefon Diggs was out. Beebe would do well to be active for Week 1, but there's nobody preventing him from carving out a limited role behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski even said, "I think he's making a name for himself."3 days
90.John Ross: Inconsistent so far (RotoWire) Ross missed some practices during the offseason program and was inconsistent when he was on the field, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Ross is getting a fresh start under a new coaching staff but doesn't seem to be taking advantage of the opportunity so far. He had a perplexing 21-210-7 receiving line on 58 targets (3.6 YPT) last season, proving useful in the red zone while struggling badly in all other areas of the field. The Bengals still hope he can develop into a deep threat, as his record-setting time in the 40-yard dash (4.22 seconds) presumably played a big role in the team's decision to draft him at No. 9 over... (More)3 days
91.Curtis Samuel: Shines during minicamp (RotoWire) Samuel stood out as one of the Panthers' best players at mandatory minicamp, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports. Analysis: Samuel is enjoying his first healthy offseason in the NFL after battling a series of injuries the past two years. He worked his way into a starting job by the end of last season, averaging 7.6 yards on 65 targets and 10.5 yards on eight carries, with seven touchdowns on just 47 touches in 13 games. The Panthers intend to find more work for Samuel this upcoming season, with coach Ron Rivera noting that the wide receiver has shown significant improvement in his route running. It helps that Samuel is on... (More)3 days
92.Former UDFA WR Pringle surprising for Ch... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Teicher lists Byron Pringle as the Chief's biggest surprise offseason standout. Analysis: Pringle reportedly was on his way to a roster spot last year as a rookie after a nice preseason but an injury ended his season before it started. The undrafted free agent with 4.46-speed has shown promise once again this offseason while battling for a role. At Kansas State in 2017, Pringle averaged 24.1 yards per reception as a low-volume deep target.3 days
93.Chris Herndon IV could face a two-game suspension (FantasyPros) Chris Herndon IV could face a two-game suspension this season, per an ESPN report. Analysis: The suspension stems from Herndon IV pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated in January. Herndon looked impressive at times during his 2018 rookie campaign, finishing with a 39-502-4 line. The depth chart behind him is paper thin, with offseason standout Daniel Brown and 2019 fourth-round pick Trevon Wesco the most likely benefactors of a Herndon suspension.3 days
94.DEN TE Troy Fumagalli is a surprise stan... (Rotoworld) Broncos TE Troy Fumagalli "consistently made plays in OTAs and minicamp." Analysis: Fumagalli is competing for snaps behind presumed starter Noah Fant, but the Broncos are expected to use some two tight end sets, opening a path to playing time for a tight end like Fumagalli. A 2018 fifth-round pick out of Wisconsin, Fumagalli missed his entire rookie season with a sports hernia and isn't expected to make noise as a pass catcher in 2019.3 days
95.Leonard Fournette: Working on receiving skills (RotoWire) Fournette reported to mandatory minicamp in good shape and looked comfortable catching passes, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. Analysis: Fournette joined the Jaguars for the early portion of their offseason program but then skipped some voluntary OTA sessions in May. His conditioning became a major issue last season when he put on weight while recovering from a hamstring injury. In addition to helping with stamina, Fournette's slimmer physique should make him more useful as a pass catcher. He isn't typically thought of as a three-down back, but it's reasonable that Fournette could have a chance to handle that role given... (More)3 days
96.Tajae Sharpe surprising at Titans camp (Rotoworld) ESPN's Turron Davenport calls Tajae Sharpe the Titans' biggest surprise offseason standout. Analysis: Sharpe is "in the mix for No. 3 wideout spot" despite the Titans adding Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown into the receiver room this offseason. As he has done in the regular season, Sharpe has been lining up at multiple receiver spots this offseason in hopes his versatility leads to more playing time. However, with more in-house competition than last year, Sharpe isn't a buy in fantasy.3 days
97.Chris Herndon facing a two-game suspensi... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Rich Cimini notes Chris Herndon is "facing the likelihood of a two-game suspension." Analysis: Herndon pleaded guilty to DWI in January after crashing into another vehicle last June. Nothing is official yet, but Herndon is going to face a short suspension in 2019. When he returns, Herndon will be an intriguing late-round fantasy tight end after catching 39 passes for 502 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie last year.3 days
98.Chris Conley has been the best Jaguars W... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Mike DiRocco said Chris Conley has been the Jaguars best wide receiver during OTAs and minicamp. Analysis: DiRocco goes as far as saying, "The Jaguars don't have a clear No. 1 receiver, but with Marqise Lee not expected to return from a knee injury until several weeks into training camp it could be Conley." A Donte Moncrief replacement, Conley reportedly has chemistry with Nick Foles and is working his way into a starting job. However, unless this offense changes with Foles, Conley isn't likely to be a consistent fantasy contributor.3 days
99.Steelers rookie WR Diontae Johnson surpr... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler lists rookie WR Diontae Johnson as one of the Steelers' surprise offseason standouts.3 days
100.Daniel Brown has been a surprise for the... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Rich Cimini called TE Daniel Brown the Jets' surprise offseason standout. Analysis: Cimini notes Brown "has impressed with his ability as a receiver," especially on deep routes with "more downfield speed than anticipated." The receiver turned tight end only played 23 offensive snaps in Chicago last year, but this Jets tight end depth chart is softer. However, Brown is still a long shot to see meaningful snaps with a career 35-317-1 receiving line across four seasons.3 days
