1.Randy Gregory to apply for reinstatement (FantasyPros) Randy Gregory who was suspended in February for violating the league's substance abuse policy, will apply for reinstatement this week. Analysis: Gregory was suspended in February for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Despite the suspension, Dallas signed him to a one-year extension through 2020. This suggests they are optimistic Gregory will return at some point this season. As of now, he is suspended indefinitely. Gregory finished with 25 tackles, six sacks, and two forced fumbles in 14 games for the Cowboys last season.1 hour
2.Derrick Henry being talked up by new offensive coordinator (FantasyPros) Titans running back Derrick Henry, coming off of a season in which he rushed for 1,059 yards and 12 touchdowns on 215 carries, is being talked up by new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Smith said that the Titans plan to ride Henry. Analysis: Riding Henry can mean a number of things. From a business side, it can mean riding him into the ground because he is in the last year of his contract and they aren't concerned about his long-term health. Or, from a strictly strategic football perspective, it could mean that they are planning to run the offense through Henry. The good news for fantasy owners is that both of these essentia...

3.Emmanuel Sanders will avoid the PUP list to start camp (FantasyPros) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will not begin the year on the PUP list, according to general manager John Elway. Sanders is recovering from a torn Achilles for which he underwent surgery in December. Analysis: It is encouraging that the Broncos are optimistic about Sanders, but a torn Achilles is a significant injury, especially for a veteran wide receiver who relies on speed and agility. Monitor his status throughout training camp to see how he is progressing.2 hours
4.Rodney Anderson likely to start the year on the PUP list (FantasyPros) Bengals rookie running back Rodney Anderson is likely to begin the year on the PUP list, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner on Twitter. Anderson is recovering from a torn ACL and broken leg suffered last September. Analysis: The Bengals are likely to be cautious with Anderson after he suffered such a serious injury last year, so this news should not be surprising. For his part, Anderson said that he hopes to be ready for training camp. He is worth a late stash in rookie-only drafts but does not offer much value in redraft leagues unless he can prove that he is healthy enough to contribute throughout the summer.2 hours
5.Barber approaching every-down opportunit... (Rotoworld) PewterReport.com's Taylor Jenkins suspects Peyton Barber will have "close to" 45 targets this season. Analysis: His estimate is based on the idea Barber receives every-down treatment since Jacquizz Rodgers is no longer around to play off the bench. Assuming he makes it out of camp, that seems like an ideal down for Andre Ellington to take over second-year pro Ronald Jones. Whatever the outcome, the Bucs' backfield is clearly one to monitor closely in camp, as one will come away with major fantasy implications.3 hours
6.River Cracraft: Benefits from Burbridge retirement (RotoWire) Cracraft's chances of making the active roster have increased with the retirement of Aaron Burbirdge, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports. Analysis: Burbridge, already familiar with offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello's scheme from their time together with the 49ers, was reportedly a sleeper in spring practices. After battling injuries throughout his career and now taking an early retirement, the depth chart shifts. Veteran Emmanuel Sanders and promising youngsters Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Tim Patrick seem to be locks. Assuming the Broncos keep at least five wide outs, Cracraft seems like the most likely fif... (More)5 hours
7.Drew Lock agrees to terms with Broncos (FantasyPros) Rookie quarterback Drew Lock has agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos on the day that the team reports to training camp, according to ProFootballTalk. Analysis: With the current structure set up for rookie contracts, lengthy holdouts are more of a rarity, so it was expected all along that the Broncos and Lock would agree to a deal sooner rather than later. As it turns out, they agreed to a deal on the day the team reports to camp. Lock is expected to be the backup to starter Joe Flacco in 2019, but he is a high draft pick that the team is surely hoping will take that job before too long.5 hours
8.Deion Jones: Inks four-year extension (RotoWire) Jones (foot) and the Falcons reached an agreement on a four-year, $57 million extension Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: When healthy, Jones has been highly productive through three seasons, averaging 129.3 tackles and 3.5 sacks per 16 games played. Last year, he was limited to six appearances due to a foot injury, which impacted his offseason practice reps. The Falcons open training camp Saturday, at which point his status will become more clear. No matter, the middle linebacker has been locked up for the foreseeable future.6 hours
9.Falcons do 4-year, $57M deal with Deion ... (Rotoworld) Falcons signed MLB Deion Jones to a four-year, $57 million contract extension. Analysis: The deal includes an $11 million signing bonus with $25.8 million fully guaranteed. It's another win for Rosenhaus Sports, with Jones now the second-highest paid inside linebacker despite missing 10 games to injury last year. With Jones and Grady Jarrett locked up, Atlanta can now turn its attention to a new deal for Julio Jones.7 hours
10.Rashard Robinson hit with 10 game suspen... (Rotoworld) NFL suspended free agent CB Rashard Robinson 10 games for violating the substance-abuse policy. Analysis: It's the second time he's been suspended under the policy. Robinson has value as a sub-package corner, but this obviously hurts his chances of signing. Any team that adds Robinson can stash him on the suspended list, so it's possible he resurfaces.7 hours
11.Broncos get Drew Lock signed ahead of ca... (Rotoworld) Broncos signed second-round QB Drew Lock to a four-year, $7 million contract. Analysis: Lock was holding out for an above-slot signing bonus, but the Broncos didn't cave and got a deal done on the eve of training camp. This comes just a day after fellow second-rounder OG Dalton Risner signed. Joe Flacco is Denver's Week 1 starter, but Flacco's leash could be short if Lock can put together a strong preseason. It won't be surprising if Lock makes rookie year starts.8 hours
12.Rodney Anderson likely headed for PUP li... (Rotoworld) Bengals sixth-round RB Rodney Anderson (knee) is likely to open the season on the reserve/PUP list. Analysis: Anderson tore his ACL two games into his junior season. He was expected to be ready for training camp, but that's not going to happen. Anderson will miss at least the first six games if he lands on PUP but it could allow the Bengals to stash him without using a roster spot. With Anderson sidelined, Trayveon Williams is the favorite for Cincy's No. 3 role.8 hours
13.Von Miller: Aiming for higher snap snare (RotoWire) Miller wants to play 85-to-90 percent of Denver's defensive snaps, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Miller mentioned 20 sacks as a reasonable goal earlier this offseason, also noting that he eventually hopes to pass Bruce Smith for the all-time record (200). Both goals are realistic but far from likely, with Miller averaging 12.3 sacks and 15.0 games through the first eight seasons of his NFL career. He handled an 89.9 percent snap share back in 2012 when he had a career-high 18.5 sacks, but he's landed between 76 and 86 percent in each subsequent season (accounting for active games only). Of course, extra snaps won't be as... (More)9 hours
14.Emmanuel Sanders: Won't start camp on PUP list (RotoWire) GM John Elway noted Wednesday that Sanders (Achilles) will not be placed on the Broncos' PUP list to start training camp, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: That said, because Sanders is bouncing back from December Achilles' surgery, the wideout will be "eased in" to practice over the next few weeks. That's something he previously has acknowledged, so while he won't be full-go out of the gate, there's still time for fantasy observers to gather intel on the 32-year-old's recovery prior to the heart of draft/auction season. The key thing to monitor will be how much, if at all, the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder's straight speed and exp... (More)10 hours
15.Phillip Lindsay: Easing into practice (RotoWire) Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Lindsay (wrist) is ready for the start of training camp but will be eased into practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Lindsay expressed similar confidence Monday, noting that he's 100 percent recovered from the broken right wrist that ended his prolific rookie season after Week 16. His absence from offseason practices freed up extra first-team work for Royce Freeman, who now figures to challenge Lindsay for carries on early downs. The Broncos also still have Devontae Booker, but he may be phased out of the offense if Lindsay and Freeman display improved pass-game skills.10 hours
16.Emmanuel Sanders avoids PUP list to open... (Rotoworld) Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') has avoided the active/PUP list to open Broncos training camp. Analysis: That's a huge positive in his recovery from a torn Achilles', but GM John Elway did say Sanders will be eased back into practice slowly. Still, this puts Sanders well on track to be back to 100% for Week 1 where he'll team with Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton to form the Broncos' receiving trio. Tim Patrick will be waiting in the wings should one of the three get hurt.11 hours
17.Fangio confirms Lindsay (wrist) 'ready t... (Rotoworld) Speaking Wednesday, coach Vic Fangio confirmed Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is "ready to go" for the start of training camp. Analysis: Fangio added, "We'll ease him in." But it sounds like Lindsay avoids the active/PUP list to open camp as the Broncos are the first team to report for camp, which happened Wednesday. Lindsay will cede some first-team reps to Royce Freeman, but Lindsay will have every opportunity to regain firm control of his lead-back duties after a stellar rookie season. Lindsay should pace this backfield in carries and remains a high-ceiling RB2.11 hours
18.Emmanuel Sanders will practice on limited basis (FFToday) Emmanuel Sanders will not go on PUP list. Will start practicing tomorrow on limited basis. Good sign. Analysis: The Broncos are reporting to training camp today and as expected, Sanders will begin working out on a limited basis, hoping to be active in team drills some time in August. Sanders is recovering from an Achilles injury raising red flags about his 2019 fantasy value. Sanders, Courtland Sutton and sit atop the Broncos wide receiver depth chart.11 hours
19.Miles Boykin signs his rookie contract (Rotoworld) Ravens signed third-round WR Miles Boykin to a four-year contract. Analysis: Boykin (6’4/220) turned pro after a breakout redshirt junior year (59/872/8), averaging 14.8 yards per catch and leading the Irish in all receiving categories. His stock soared in Indy, blazing 4.42 with absurd vertical (43 ½") and broad (11’8") jumps, clocking the fastest three-cone time (6.77) of all wide receivers invited, and registering one of the highest SPARQ scores in Combine history. Gifted but underdeveloped with only one year of meaningful production, Boykin falls on the Devin Funchess-Vi... (More)12 hours
20.Aaron Burbridge decides to call it a car... (Rotoworld) Broncos WR Aaron Burbridge is retiring from the NFL after three seasons. Analysis: Burbridge was a 2016 sixth-round pick of the 49ers who played in all 16 games as a rookie, catching 7-of-16 targets for 88 scoreless yards. He missed the following two seasons with injuries and is hanging up the cleats at 25 years old.12 hours
21.Cards cut OT Harrison after assault char... (Rotoworld) Cardinals waived OT Desmond Harrison. Analysis: Harrison is facing charges of assault on a person by strangulation and assault on a female by a male in Greensboro, North Carolina. Police have issued a warrant for Harrison's arrest. Harrison started eight games for the Browns last year but was cut last month when he was late to minicamp. The Cardinals, along with a couple other teams, placed waiver claims on Harrison. He'll likely pass through waivers this time around with the off-field issue hanging over his head.13 hours
22.Javon Wims: Could have role in offense (RotoWire) Wims looked good during offseason workouts and appears primed to compete for a role on offense, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports. Analysis: The 2018 seventh-round pick led the NFL with 227 receiving yards last preseason, earning a spot on Chicago's 53-man roster throughout the year. He was active for four contests, including a four-catch, 35-yard outing Week 17 against Minnesota. The path to a meaningful role in 2019 appears difficult after the Bears bolstered their wideout depth with the signing of Cordarrelle Patterson and drafting of Riley Ridley, but there is some chance for Wims to make a push toward the No. 4 spot... (More)13 hours
23.Kamu Grugier-Hill: Challenging for three-down role (RotoWire) Grugier-Hill may challenge Zach Brown for playing time in nickel packages, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports. Analysis: Grugier-Hill, Brown and Nigel Bradham are expected to handle starting jobs, but only the latter is a lock to stay on the field for all three downs. Brown is coming in to replace Jordan Hicks, who signed with Arizona this offseason after averaging 58.8 defensive snaps and 7.6 tackles in 12 games for Philadelphia in 2018. Brown is viewed as a downgrade from Hicks in pass coverage, which gives Grugier-Hill a shot at an every-down job -- the type that could lead to IDP value.14 hours
24.Nigel Bradham: Poised for three-down role (RotoWire) Bradham is expected to handle an every-down role, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports. Analysis: The Eagles swapped out Jordan Hicks for Zach Brown at middle linebacker this offseason, potentially freeing up a spot for Kamu Grugier-Hill in nickel packages. Either way, Bradham will continue to fill a three-down role after topping 900 defensive snaps in each of his first three seasons with the Eagles. The heavy workloads haven't led to first-rate IDP production, with Bradham averaging 95.7 tackles (65.7 solo) and 1.7 sacks per season in Philadelphia. Much of his value to the team comes from solid work in pass coverage.14 hours
25.Quinn thinks Hooper can go to 'another l... (Rotoworld) Coach Dan Quinn believes contract-year TE Austin Hooper is "ready to go to another level" with his play in 2019.15 hours
26.Ronald Jones to begin camp as No.2 RB (FFToday) is bigger. But will he be better? The Bucs running back had a disappointing rookie season, to put it mildly. The second-round pick from Southern Cal rushed for only 44 yards and one touchdown in 2018. Jones says he has added muscle and is up to 221 pounds from 208 pounds. Jones will begin training camp as the No. 2 running back behind , who led the team in rushing with 871 yards and five touchdowns. Analysis: After a dismal rookie season, some are predicting Jones will ascend to the lead back role in Tampa Bay now that a new coaching staff is in place. With pass protection and route running being areas of weakness, Jones will need to co... (More)18 hours
27.Titans plan to 'ride' Henry in contract ... (Rotoworld) Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports new OC Arthur Smith said he intends to "ride" contract-year RB Derrick Henry this season. Analysis: Henry turned 25 in January and is obviously coming off a monster finish to last season when he rushed for 625 yards and eight touchdowns on 97 carries (6.44 YPC) across five December contests. Smith is a complete unknown as a coordinator, but the Titans would be wise to stick with what worked down the stretch in 2018. And that was an offense centered around Henry. He's being drafted as an RB2 in fantasy. We've been through thi... (More)1 day
28.Robert Ayers: Hangs up cleats (RotoWire) Ayers announced Tuesday via his personal twitter page that he's retiring from football. Analysis: Ayers wasn't on an NFL roster during the 2018 season, and is closing in on his 34th birthday next month. The Tennessee product still had a stellar career, however, racking up 246 tackles (178 solo) and 35 sacks in 105 games over eight seasons.1 day
29.Nick Bosa: Progressing nicely from injury (RotoWire) Bosa (hamstring) said Tuesday that he'll be ready to go come Week 1 of the regular season, Jessica Kleinschmidt of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: The 21-year-old was recently diaginosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain that was expected to sideline him until at least training camp. Bosa posted a photo of him resuming workouts and running on his personal instagram Tuesday, suggesting he's recovering nicely. The 49ers could be cautious with their prized No. 2 overall draft pick in April's draft to start camp, but expect Bosa to be out there in Week 1 against Tampa Bay.1 day
30.Jake Butt: Won't land on PUP list (RotoWire) Butt (knee) won't be placed on the physically unable to perform list this offseason, but will be eased into team activities, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Analysis: Butt has played in just three games since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, largely due to tearing his ACL of the third time in five years. The team reported earlier that the tight end was likely to be cleared to participate in training camp when it opens Thursday, and this news confirms that notion. A slow transition back into the fold should be expected for the Michigan product, but the 23-year-old could be fighting for a roster spot a... (More)1 day
31.Chris Maragos: Calling it quits (RotoWire) Maragos (knee) announced Tuesday via his personal twitter account that he's retiring from football. Analysis: Maragos just underwent his third knee surgery of his career in December to clean up a torn PCL he suffered in 2017, and the injury was most likely the cause for retirement. The 32-year-old has primarily served as a significant special teams contributor throughout his career.1 day
32.Emmanuel Sanders: Easing into camp (RotoWire) Sanders (Achilles) expects to ease into training camp, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. "I don't even know if I'll do the conditioning test [Wednesday]," Sanders said Tuesday. "As far as practice, I'm definitely not going to be going full-go from the jump." Analysis: Sanders has made impressive progress from a torn Achilles, which wiped out his ninth pro season on Dec. 5. To date, he's been running full speed since early May, and on June 7 he progressed to route running that included sharp cuts. Even with that behind him, Sanders seems to be taking a logical approach in the later stages of his recovery, increasing his workl... (More)1 day
33.Jimmy Garoppolo: Works on mechanics (RotoWire) Garoppolo (knee) has been working with noted QB throwing guru Tom House, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Garoppolo, who is bouncing back from a torn left ACL that he suffered last September, has plenty on his plate in terms or rehab and recovery, but the hope is that working with House can help improve the QB's mechanics heading into the 2019 campaign. Wagoner adds that Garoppolo told him Monday that he's hopeful in terms of being fully cleared to go at the start of training camp later this month. With that in mind, the 49ers' franchise signal caller indicated "I'm able to do pretty much everything now."1 day
34.Roc Thomas: Draws three-game suspension (RotoWire) Thomas has been suspended for three games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. Analysis: Thomas, who was sentenced to three years probation in May after pleading guilty to a felony charge of marijuana possession, can practice with the Vikings during training camp and play in the preseason, but he'll sit out the team's first three regular-season games before becoming eligible to return to the field Sept. 23. Thomas is in line to compete for a depth role in the Minnesota backfield (behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison) along with Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah.1 day
35.Robert Ayers retires after 10 years (Rotoworld) Ex-Bucs DE Robert Ayers has announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 years. Analysis: Cut by the Bucs following the 2017 season, Ayers could not find a new home for 2018. The No. 18 overall pick of the 2009 draft, Ayers notched four five-sack seasons, including a career-high 9.5 in 2015 for the Giants.1 day
36.Jonnu Smith: Week 1 status not yet clear (RotoWire) Smith (knee) hasn't practiced all offseason, which results in Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site being noncommittal about the tight end's Week 1 status. Analysis: Wyatt notes that coach Mike Vrabel "hasn't provided any insight on (Smith's) condition," though added clarity on that front could arrive once training camp commences. Smith's status is relevant considering that starting tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) is bouncing back from an injury of his own. It looks like Walker should be ready to go in time for the Titans' season opener, but if he misses any time in-season, Smith could enter the fantasy equation in deeper formats.1 day
37.Chris Maragos announces retirement from ... (Rotoworld) Ex-Eagles and 49ers S Chris Maragos has announced his retirement. Analysis: A 2010 UDFA, Maragos carved out a career as a core special teamer. He was a member of the Eagles' Super Bowl winning squad in 2017-18. Maragos is just 32.1 day
38.Rob Gronkowski: Has trimmed down (RotoWire) Gronkowski, who spent much of his NFL career in the 265-270 pound range, noted earlier this month that he's down to 250 pounds, Andrew Callahan of masslive.com reports. Analysis: The report indicates that the tight end, who is currently retired, hasn't been lifting weights of late and that's resulted in Gronkowski quickly trimming down since last season. Despite the noticeable change in his physique, speculation continues to swirl that Gronkowski could still elect to come out of retirement at some point down the road. With that in mind, Scott Zolak, co-host of 98.5 The Sports Hub, suggests that a midseason return (at which point Gro... (More)1 day
39.Roc Thomas slapped with three-game ban (Rotoworld) NFL suspended Vikings RB Roc Thomas three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Analysis: Thomas was sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to felony marijuana possession in May. A 2018 UDFA, Thomas was on and off the 53-man roster. He touched the ball 10 times across five games.1 day
40.Ronald Jones received 'raves' during OTA... (Rotoworld) The Tampa Bay Times reports Ronald Jones received "only raves" from the Bucs' new coaching staff during offseason workouts. Analysis: Reporter Rick Stroud adds the obvious and necessary caveat that the "raves" came during pad-less practices. It's still better than the alternative. Jones fell deep into everyone's dog house during his lost rookie year. He enters camp as the clear-cut No. 2 back behind Peyton Barber, but he is going to get the opportunity to do some depth chart climbing.1 day
41.Sanders 'definitely not full go' for cam... (Rotoworld) Speaking Wednesday, Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') said he's "definitely not going to be full go from the jump" in training camp.1 day
42.40 percent chance Gronk comes back in 20... (Rotoworld) A "source close to Rob Gronkowski" puts his chances of playing at some point in 2019 at 40 percent.1 day
43.Broncos' Dalton Risner signs rookie cont... (Rotoworld) Broncos signed second-round G/T Dalton Risner to a four-year contract. Analysis: Risner made 50 starts for Kansas State's offensive line, manning center as a freshman before moving to right tackle for the rest of his career. He was lining up at left guard in Broncos OTAs. A second-team All-American as a senior, Risner allowed QB pressures on a conference-low 1.4% of his pass-blocking snaps. PFF College graded Risner as an elite run blocker in all four years. The Broncos are going to get him on the field as a rookie. 1 day
44.Delanie Walker should be ready for opene... (Rotoworld) The Titans' official website expects Delanie Walker (ankle) to be ready for Week 1. Analysis: Walker recently expressed uncertainty about whether he would begin camp on the active/PUP list, but reserve/PUP to begin the year can be safely ruled out. Going on 35, the Titans have zero reason to rush Walker's recovery. It would not be surprising to see him sit out the entire preseason. Currently being drafted on the TE1/2 borderline, Walker is looking like a potential 2019 bargain.1 day
45.Jonnu Smith (knee) questionable for Week... (Rotoworld) The Titans' official website considers Jonnu Smith (knee) questionable for Week 1. Analysis: It's a bit of a surprise since Smith "only" tore his MCL, but he has yet to practice this offseason. The No. 100 overall pick of the 2017 draft went down last Week 14. Perhaps he is a candidate for the reserve/PUP list, which would cost six games. Smith would be something of a TE2 dark horse behind an aging/rehabbing Delanie Walker, but it will all come down to his health.1 day
46.Todd Gurley: Won't change running style (RotoWire) Gurley isn't going to change his playing style and reaffirmed his knee is "good," Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports. Analysis: There are still questions surrounding Gurley's fantasy stock. He sat out offseason workouts, and it was also made public in June that there's an "arthritic component" to his lingering knee injury. Unfortunately, there probably aren't going to be many concrete answers until Week 1. He's unlikely to see many reps through the preseason, and the Rams re-signing Malcolm Brown and trading up to select Darrell Henderson in the NFL Draft this spring suggest Gurley's role could be reduced to limit the wear and tear on his... (More)1 day
47.Randy Gregory applying for reinstatement (Rotoworld) Suspended Cowboys DE Randy Gregory will apply for reinstatement this week. Analysis: Gregory was able to play in 16 games last season including the playoffs, recording six sacks along the way, but he was suspended in February for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Dallas signed Gregory to a one-year extension in April, suggesting they expect him to play again, and it at least appears possible that could happen as soon as this season. As of now, Gregory is suspended indefinitely.1 day
48.Andy Isabella: Poised for Week 1 role (RotoWire) Isabella has a chance to earn an immediate role on offense, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Analysis: Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are locked in for key roles, leaving Isabella to compete with a couple other rookies (Hakeem Butler, KeeSean Johnson) and a slew of veterans (Trent Sherfield, Kevin White, Damiere Byrd, Chad Williams) for the third and fourth spots at wide receiver. The No. 4 receiver doesn't get many snaps in a typical NFL offense, but it'll be a different story in Arizona if coach Kliff Kingsbury's pro version of the Air Raid is similar to what he used at Texas Tech -- a scheme heavy on four-... (More)1 day
49.Broncos second rounders could hold out (Rotoworld) 9 News' Mike Klis reports Broncos second-rounders QB Drew Lock and OG Dalton Risner could hold out into camp. Analysis: Risner and Lock were taken back-to-back in the second round, which is apparently the reason for the contract impasse. Lock is looking for a "quarterback premium" on his rookie deal, but Risner does not want to accept a smaller contract than the one signed by a teammate taken one pick after him. This should get worked out, but the rookies could miss the first few days of camp.1 day
50.Drew Lock a training camp holdout? (FFToday) Negotiations between the Broncos and rookies Dalton Risner and have snagged to the point the team may have a couple second-round training camp holdouts. According to multiple sources, Lock’s agent is seeking a "quarterback premium," which is common for QBs taken in the first and third rounds. Lock was taken in the second round. (Second-round QBs since 2014 did not receive a premium). The premium Lock is seeking would mean either more money or more full guarantees in Lock’s contract than Risner’s slotted amount. And Risner’s agent understandably doesn’t want to take less than the player selected behind him Analy... (More)1 day
51.Julio Jones: Working toward contract (RotoWire) Jones (foot) is sending agent Drew Rosenhaus to meet with the Falcons on Wednesday for face-to-face negotiations, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Falcons owner Arthur Blank and general manger Thomas Dimitroff both have acknowledged their intention to give Jones a new contract, but there's still work to be done on the exact terms. Jones has two seasons remaining on a five-year, $71.25 million deal, putting him 12th among wide receivers in average annual value ($14.25 million), per overthecap.com. The 30-year-old didn't hold out from mandatory minicamp in June, instead watching from the sidelines to avoid aggravating his foot. ... (More)1 day
52.Ezekiel Elliott: Weighing options for holdout (RotoWire) Elliott is weighing his options for a potential holdout but hasn't made a final decision, Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports reports. Analysis: A prolonged holdout would put the most pressure on the Cowboys, but Elliott would lose an accrued season towards free agency if he doesn't report to training camp by Aug. 6. The relationship between team and player reportedly remains cordial, albeit with the complication of Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper entering contract seasons. Elliott doesn't seem to be the immediate priority, as he's under team control through 2020 via the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. Discussions with Elliott s... (More)1 day
53.Boston Scott 'front-runner' for roster s... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Philly's Dave Zangaro writes Boston Scott "might actually be the front-runner" for the final running back spot on the Eagles' roster. Analysis: Assuming Corey Clement is healthy, he, Jordan Howard, and Miles Sanders should occupy the top three spots on the depth chart. It is wide open behind them, however, and Zangaro believes Scott has "a much more complementary collection of skills" than guys like Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams. Even if he wins the job, Scott will likely need some injuries ahead of him to earn real fantasy value this season.1 day
54.Fitzgerald impressed by tempo of new off... (Rotoworld) Larry Fitzgerald is impressed by the tempo of new coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense. Analysis: "It’s not so much what he’s installing that stand out; it's how its run, the tempo of it," Fitzgerald said. "Every single day, with more experience, we were able to run it faster and faster and faster, get more plays in more efficiently." Arizona ran the second-fewest offensive plays in the league last season at 902. Under Kingsbury, it would not be surprising if they were near the top of the league this year. That extra volume will provide a massive boost to what looks like ... (More)1 day
55.Zeke must report by Aug 6 for accrued se... (Rotoworld) Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Ezekiel Elliott must report to camp by August 6 in order to receive an accrued season toward free agency. Analysis: Elliott is currently scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season, but that would not be the case if he fails to gain at least one accrued season before then. Elliott could get the all-important fourth accrued season next year, but holding out deep into camp this time would prevent him from doing the same in his contract season. Robinson believes Elliott will ultimately decide against holding out.1 day
56.Derrius Guice downplays injury (FantasyPros) Derrius Guice who injured his hamstring while rehabbing, downplayed the injury and stated there's "no reason" for concern. Analysis: Guice reportedly was on track for the start of training camp before the injury news developed. Guice tweeted out Friday night, "I don't listen to the noise, I know what's going on with me." It is entirely possible that Guice could be back for training camp. Amid health concerns, Guice faces tough competition for playing time in a backfield that also has Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson. We will know more on Guice's availability as training camp draws closer.2 days
57.Braxton Berrios could secure roster spot (FantasyPros) Braxton Berrios who was stashed on injured reserve as a rookie, has looked good at spring practices in hopes to landing a roster spot as part of the Patriots receiving corps. Analysis: Berrios, a sixth round pick in 2018, is in good health after spending his entire rookie season on the injured reserve. He will need his strong May and June to carry over into training camp, if he hopes to land a roster spot with the team. His odds will largely remain on the health of Demaryius Thomas and the suspension status of Josh Gordon. According to Reiss, Berrios would be in a Danny Amendola-type role as a slot receiver while also working as... (More)2 days
58.Free agent RB Alex Collins breaks his le... (Rotoworld) Free agent RB Alex Collins broke his leg. Analysis: Collins has been training in hopes of a new deal, which now seems unlikely in the very near future. In addition to the injury, Collins is facing three charges stemming from an arrest in March, which could lead to a lengthy suspension from the NFL. Collins will have to be patient, but he is still only 24 years old and only two years removed from a 973-yard season.2 days
59.David Johnson to see lot of action as receiver (FFToday) It’s been a long time since David Johnson’s dynamic 2016 season and push for a 1,000-1,000 rushing/receiving year ended with a scary knee injury in Los Angeles. His 2017 season was lost to a wrist injury, his 2018 lost to a struggling offense and a struggle knowing how to use his talents. Johnson should fit perfectly into the new Cardinals’ offense, mainly because Johnson remains the team’s best offensive weapon (especially at this point in Murray’s development). The Cards are still going to run the ball and Johnson will be the bellcow. But his recei... (More)2 days
60.Ezekiel Elliott threatening to skip camp (FFToday) Chargers running back Melvin Gordon isn’t being coy about his intent to hold out until he gets a new deal. Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott apparently is, at least for now. Per a league source, Elliott has privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract. Analysis: Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Zeke hasn't made a decision about whether to hold out of camp yet or not, but he definitely wants an extension "in the works." Elliott has two years left on his rookie deal and is actually making a smart play considering he will probably ... (More)2 days
61.Martavis Bryant: Applies for reinstatement (RotoWire) Bryant (knee, suspension) formally applied for reinstatement Monday, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Bryant announced his intent to apply for reinstatement earlier this offseason, and has now officially begun the process. The 27-year-old has reportedly worked with both the NFL and NFLPA in addressing his off the field issues. The former Pittsburgh and Oakland wideout received an indefinite suspension in mid-December of the 2018 season after violating the terms of his April 2017 conditional reinstatement. Less than two weeks before the suspension, Bryant had suffered a season-ending PCL injury. He ended the 2018 season with... (More)2 days
62.Martavis Bryant applies for reinstatemen... (Rotoworld) Suspender free agent WR Martavis Bryant has applied for reinstatement. Analysis: According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Bryant has been working with the NFL and the Players Association on steps he needs to take to address his mental health issues, with therapists and ADHD treatments. Bryant has been trying to come to an agreement with the league for proper treatment for his mental health. Still 27, Bryant could yet again get another chance.2 days
63.Jadeveon Clowney: Not signing extension (RotoWire) Clowney didn't sign an extension before Monday's deadline and isn't expected to report to training camp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports that the 26-year-old is expected to rejoin the Texans before Week 1, but only after he sits out most or all of training camp. Clowney's unsigned $15.9 million franchise tender is a nice bargain for the team if it's compared to the deals signed by fellow pass rushers Demarcus Lawrence (Cowboys), Frank Clark (Chiefs) and Trey Flowers (Lions) during the offseason. After struggling with injuries early in his career, Clowney missed just one game the p... (More)2 days
64.Raiders add Cooper amid Icognito suspens... (Rotoworld) Raiders signed OL Jonathan Cooper. Analysis: Cooper was released by the Niners last September before landing with Washington as a late-season addition. Recovering from a torn biceps procedure in the offseason, Cooper is merely much-needed depth following OG Richie Cognito’s two-game suspension.2 days
65.Antonio Callaway: Earns Mayfield's praise (RotoWire) Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield said Callaway looked sharp during the offseason program, Andrew Gribble of the team's official website reports. "We have been very happy with how [Callaway] came back from the offseason ready to go," Mayfield said. "Just how quick he is and you can tell he has been working on his craft." Analysis: Callaway averaged 5.2 yards on 45 targets in eight games with Hue Jackson and Todd Haley running the show last season, followed by 10.3 yards on 34 targets in eight games under Freddie Kitchens, who now serves as head coach. The trade of volume for efficiency worked great from the Browns' perspective, but fa... (More)2 days
66.Grady Jarrett: Signs extension before deadline (RotoWire) Jarrett is signing a four-year, $68 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Jarrett and the Falcons appear to have reached an agreement just an hour or two before Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for franchise-tagged players. The 26-year-old defensive tackle averaged 51.7 tackles (27.3 solo) and 4.3 sacks over the past three seasons, including a career-high six sacks in 2018. The $17 million average annual average on his contract ranks third among defensive tackles, behind the Rams' Aaron Donald and the Eagles' Fletcher Cox.2 days
67.Texans, DE Clowney fail to make deadline... (Rotoworld) Texans and Jadeveon Clowney did not reach a long-term deal before Monday’s deadline. Analysis: As expected, Houston’s failure to reach an agreement with Clowney will ultimately result in the 26-year-old holding out for a majority of training camp and inevitably playing out what could be his final year with the team on a franchise tag. It’s hardly surprising the two sides failed to meet in the middle given Clowney’s extensive injury history. He’s looking to build off the nine sacks and 16 TFLs he compiled just last year.2 days
68.Falcons 'turning attention' to Deion Jon... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Falcons will have "face-to-face" talks with contract-year MLB Deion Jones' agent on Wednesday. Analysis: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport hinted Julio Jones would be the Falcons' priority after locking up Grady Jarrett on Monday, but Schefter offers compelling evidence that it is actually Deion. It makes sense, as Deion is headed into an actual contract year, while Julio has two seasons remaining. There's a strong chance both players are taken care of before Week 1.2 days
69.Phillip Lindsay: Ready to go (RotoWire) Lindsay (right wrist) feels good to go in advance of training camp, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. "In my mind I'm ready," Lindsay noted Monday. "I'm 100 percent." Analysis: The running back did, however, acknowledge that Denver's coaches and training staff will determine the amount of reps he takes once camp opens up Thursday. The 24-year-old joined the Broncos last season as an undrafted free agent, but the 5-foot-8, 190-pounder emerged as the team's lead back in 2018, en route to logging 192 carries for 1,037 yards and nine rushing TDs to go along with 35 catches for 241 yards and a receiving score. Lindsay heads into the comin... (More)2 days
70.Alex Smith: Sheds external fixator (RotoWire) Smith recently had the external fixator removed from his broken leg, NFL.com's Kevin Patra reports. Analysis: Nearly eight months after he suffered his devastating injury, Smith finally is able to shed the device that allowed his leg to heal properly. He won't be ready for football in 2019, but he's been clear about his desire to eventually resume playing. Meanwhile, Washington is set to host a three-way quarterback battle between Case Keenum, Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy (leg).2 days
71.Julio Jones extension could 'take a whil... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports a Julio Jones extension is the Falcons' "most pressing priority," but that it could "take a while." Analysis: The Grady Jarrett deck was going to be cleared either way on Monday, and it was in the form of a new four-year deal. For his part, Jones — who is signed through 2020 — has said he will not hold out. The Falcons are a team that likes to get out in front on extensions. Jones seems likely to get one before Week 1.2 days
72.Falcons reach 4-year, $68M deal with Jar... (Rotoworld) Falcons signed DT Grady Jarrett to a four-year, $68 million contract. Analysis: Jarrett had been franchise tagged. The sides just beat Monday's 4PM ET deadline for a long-term contract. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jarrett is now the third-highest paid interior defensive lineman in the league. The No. 137 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Jarrett has never posted gaudy sack totals, but consistently generates interior disruption. He earned monster marks from Pro Football Focus each of the past two years. 2019 will be his age-26 campaign.2 days
73.Kamrin Moore: Suspended pending further investigation (RotoWire) The Giants have suspended Moore, who was arrested this past weekend, pending further investigation. Analysis: Per a statement released by the team, the safety's arrest, which occurred in Linden, New Jersey, was for an alleged domestic violence-related incident. Moore, who was selected by New Orleans in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, was subsequently claimed on waivers by the Giants last September.2 days
74.Yahoo confirms Elliott holdout possibili... (Rotoworld) Yahoo's Charles Robinson confirms Ezekiel Elliott is considering holding out of Cowboys training camp. Analysis: Per Robinson, the sides have been talking for over a month. Robinson believes Elliott will nix a holdout, even absent a new deal, if he believes the 'Boys are "making a serious push to get an extension worked." The Cowboys are scheduled to report in 12 days. Typically, players' leverage is at a peak heading into the final year of their contracts, but Elliott's camp could be sensing that is no longer true for running backs, who each season take a beating that inexorab... (More)2 days
75.Blood clot forced Clint Boling to retire (Rotoworld) Ex-Bengals OG Clint Boling says his retirement is due to the discovery of a blood clot in his right leg following last season. Analysis: Boling said if not for the clot, he would have returned for 2019. Boling's retirement has left the Bengals ruinously thin on the left side of their offensive line.2 days
76.DJ's receiving skills 'back to the foref... (Rotoworld) AzCardinals.com's Darren Urban expects David Johnson's receiving skills to "come back to the forefront" under new coach Kliff Kingsbury. Analysis: This is a widely-held belief all across the industry, but it is still nice to hear it coming from a canny team observer like Urban. In addition to more creative usage, Johnson should also benefit from improved quarterback play and more raw plays. Now going on 28, Johnson is trying to bounce-back to high-end RB1 status after a pair of lost seasons.2 days
77.Isabella 'sure thing' for initial opport... (Rotoworld) AzCardinals.com believes second-round WR Andy Isabella "seems a sure thing to have an initial chance." Analysis: The highest-drafted of the Cardinals' three rookie wideouts, No. 62 overall pick Isabella can play both inside and out. 5-foot-9 Isabella led the nation in receiving yards (1,698) and yards per route run (4.15) as a 2018 senior at UMass. Although he is quite slight, Isabella also boasts 4.31 speed. A highly-intriguing dynasty league prospect, Isabella is also a wild card for 2019 re-draft value.2 days
78.Zay Jones: Gearing up for training camp (RotoWire) Jones (undisclosed) should be ready for the start of training camp Nate Mendelson of the Bills' official website reports. Analysis: Jones, Cole Beasley (abdomen) and Robert Foster (foot) all missed June minicamp, temporarily leaving John Brown unquestioned as the top receiving threat. It remains to be seen how the Bills divide snaps between the four wide receivers, with each boasting a reasonable case for consistent playing time. Jones led the team in targets, catches, receiving yards and touchdowns last season, but his averages of 11.6 yards per catch and 6.4 per target were far from impressive. Even his late-season TD outburst left ... (More)2 days
79.Phillip Lindsay (wrist) says he's 100 pe... (Rotoworld) Phillip Lindsay (wrist) said he will be "100 percent" for the start of Broncos training camp on Thursday. Analysis: "In my mind I'm ready," Lindsay said. The sophomore back did allow that he could be eased in slowly. Speaking early last month, coach Vic Fangio said he expected Lindsay to be ready. Lindsay is atop the depth chart, but he could face a stronger challenge from fellow sophomore Royce Freeman than he did as a rookie.2 days
80.Robert Foster: Expected back for camp (RotoWire) Foster (foot) should be a full go for the start of training camp, Nate Mendelson of the Bills' official website reports. Analysis: Foster missed part of June minicamp with a foot injury, but competition for snaps is his larger concern after the Bills signed John Brown and Cole Beasley (abdomen) during the offseason. With Zay Jones (undisclosed) also still around, the team has four wide receivers that can make a decent case for regular playing time.2 days
81.Ezekiel Elliott could holdout without new contract (FantasyPros) Ezekiel Elliott has reportedly told those close to him that he plans a holdout this NFL season if not given a new contract. Analysis: The unexpected news comes from Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. It's unclear if Zeke's desire to hold out stems from Melvin Gordon's recent holdout announcement or the fact that the Cowboys have pushed his contract talks to the back burner while focusing on DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott, and Amari Cooper. The situation is one to monitor closely, but Elliott hasn't made any public plans to sit out yet. He's still worth a top-3 pick in all formats until further notice.2 days
82.Report: Ezekiel Elliott planning camp ho... (Rotoworld) Profootballtalk reports that Ezekiel Elliott has "privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract." Analysis: Unlike Melvin Gordon, Elliott has been publicly silent on his contract situation. Gordon, of course, is headed into an actual contract year. Elliott still has two seasons remaining on his rookie deal. He has also been dealing with the fallout from another off-the-field issue, his May altercation with a security guard in Las Vegas. If Elliott is serious, it would be an intelligent gambit in an increasingly-unforgiving running back mark... (More)2 days
83.Ronald Jones adds 13 pounds of muscle this off-season (FantasyPros) Ronald Jones has added 13 pounds of muscle this off-season. Analysis: Jones played at 208 pounds last year and is now up to 221 as training camp approaches. Typically running backs perform better when they lose weight over the off-season but Jones was so bad in his rookie season that it's good to see him committed to a workout program. He has a chance to lead the Bucs in rushing this year but remains a high-risk fantasy pick.2 days
84.S Kam Moore charged with domestic violen... (Rotoworld) Giants S Kamrin Moore has been charged with third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly "punching a woman and knocking her unconscious after stepping on her neck in a domestic violence incident." Analysis: The incident happened outside of Moore's New Jersey home last Thursday evening. He is alleged to have "placed his foot" on the woman’s neck and "punched her in the face with a closed fist and causing her to lose consciousness." A 2018 sixth-round pick of the Saints, Moore made two rookie appearances for the Giants. This will end his NFL career.2 days
85.Robbie Gould, 49ers sign two-year contract (FantasyPros) The 49ers and Robbie Gould have agreed to a two-year, $10.5 million contract. Analysis: Gould and the Niners beat the deadline for players on the franchise tag to sign. The two-year deal is fully guaranteed and could wind up being four years if San Francisco picks up the option. He'll certainly be a worthwhile fantasy option once again this year.2 days
86.Ezekiel Elliott reportedly the 'target of extortion' (FantasyPros) The attorneys of Ezekiel Elliott released a statement saying their client has been the "target of extortion". Analysis: The full statement can be viewed in the attached link. The bottom line here is that Elliott has already met with Roger Goodell and has been cleared of any violations for his off-season incident in Las Vegas. Fantasy players can feel safe drafting him with a first-round pick this year.2 days
87.Alex Smith sheds brace on right leg (Rotoworld) Alex Smith has stopped wearing the "external fixator" on his surgically-repaired right leg. Analysis: "Although it’s not over, today is a big milestone," Smith's wife said in a social media post. "We are shedding the weight Alex has been carrying (literally and figuratively). It’s one step closer to the goal." Smith has previously said the fixator would "save my leg, save my bone, allow me to heal and walk again." If 35-year-old Smith does play football again — a major "if" — it will not be for the Redskins, who used the No. 15 overall... (More)2 days
88.Dak Prescott: Discussing new contract (RotoWire) Prescott and the Cowboys exchanged initial extension offers before the end of the team's offseason program, Jori Epstein of USA Today reports. Analysis: Prescott and Amari Cooper are entering contract seasons, while Ezekiel Elliott is under team control through 2020 thanks to the fifth-year option for first-round picks. The young quarterback said it's viable for each player to rank near the top of his position in contract value, noting how the NFL salary cap consistently has risen in recent years (six straight seasons with an increase of at least $10 million). Prescott is correct in his belief, but that doesn't mean it will be an easy... (More)2 days
89.Bengals OG Clint Boling announces retire... (Rotoworld) Bengals OG Clint Boling retired after eight seasons in the NFL. Analysis: Only 30, Boling cited "medical" concerns as the reason for his retirement. "This is not an easy decision, but it is the right one for me, my wife Kelly and our two young girls." A fourth-round pick in 2011, Boling has been a fixture at left guard for the Bengals since his sophomore season. With first-rounder Jonah Williams out for the season and Boling retired, the Bengals have a big hole at left guard.2 days
90.Derrick Morgan: Announces retirement (RotoWire) Morgan is retiring from football, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: A 2010 first-round pick, Morgan played each of his nine NFL seasons with Tennessee, notching 306 tackles (208 solo) and 44.5 sacks in 118 games. He had at least 4.5 sacks every year from 2012 to 2017, averaging 6.7 per season during that stretch. With fellow outside linebacker Brian Orakpo also retiring, the Titans are counting on Cameron Wake, Harold Landry and Kamalei Correa to provide a pass rush off the edge for an otherwise stellar defense.2 days
91.Robbie Gould: Ends standoff with four-year deal (RotoWire) Gould is signing a four-year, $19 million contract with the 49ers, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: The deal includes two years and $10.5 million fully guaranteed, replacing the franchise tag that Gould refused to sign. He apparently backed off with his trade request once the 49ers offered him a contract that ranks second to only Justin Tucker's among NFL kickers. The 36-year-old made 72 of 75 field-goal attempts (96 percent) and 55 of 59 extra-point tries (93.2 percent) the past two seasons in San Francisco, finishing top 10 in kicker fantasy scoring both years.2 days
92.NFL, NFLPA taking 'baby steps' toward ne... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports' Peter King reports the NFL and the NFLPA have taken "baby steps" toward a new collective bargaining agreement. Analysis: There have already been three negotiating sessions for the agreement which does not end until after the 2020 season, and a fourth is scheduled as the NFL pushes to get something done this year. That does not mean, however, that a deal is close. According to King, the players want a bigger piece of the revenue pie to get a deal done early, and the proposed 18-game season is a non-starter. There is still a long way to go in this saga.2 days
93.'Now some hope' Jarrett, Falcons reach d... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports there is "now some hope" the Falcons and franchise-tagged DT Grady Jarrett will reach a deal before the 4 pm ET deadline. Analysis: Earlier Monday, Schefter reported the two sides were unlikely to reach a deal. Things tend to get done on deadline day, however, and it sounds like some progress has been made in negotiations. Jarrett is currently scheduled to earn $15.2 million on his one-year tender.2 days
94.Derrick Morgan retires after nine season... (Rotoworld) Ex-Titans OLB Derrick Morgan announced his retirement after nine seasons in the NFL. Analysis: Morgan wrote he entered 2018, his contract year, assuming it would be his last in the NFL, and now he has made it official. The No. 16 overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, Morgan spent all nine of his seasons with the Titans. He retires with 44.5 career sacks including a nine-sack campaign back in 2016.2 days
95.Falcons, Grady Jarrett unlikely to reach... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Falcons and franchise-tagged DT Grady Jarrett are unlikely to reach a long-term agreement.2 days
96.49ers, Robbie Gould agree to long-term d... (Rotoworld) 49ers signed K Robbie Gould. Analysis: Gould was scheduled to make almost $5 million under the franchise tag, so it is safe to assume the average value of this deal is somewhere near there. Seemingly looking to return to Chicago, Gould was not happy with the tag and even demanded a trade in the spring, but the 49ers never wavered about keeping him around and surprisingly got him to agree to a long-term contract on deadline day. Gould has connected on 96 percent of his field goal attempts since joining the 49ers in 2017.2 days
97.Kizer sees himself as a future Super Bow... (Rotoworld) DeShone Kizer said, "I don't see myself as Aaron Rodgers' backup for the final era of his career. I see myself as a future Super Bowl MVP." Analysis: Having goals is a great thing. Having confidence is also a great thing. But Kizer's short-term goal should be to absorb as much of Aaron Rodger's knowledge as possible before trying to compete for a starting job elsewhere. That, of course, is no guarantee. Through two seasons, Kizer has thrown 11 touchdowns to 24 interceptions. A big 2019 preseason would go a long way for Kizer to reach his goals, but Kizer is a career backup unti... (More)3 days
98.Mayfield impressed with WR Antonio Calla... (Rotoworld) Baker Mayfield has been impressed with WR Antonio Callaway this offseason. Analysis: Mayfield said, "We have been very pleasantly and very happy with how he came back from the offseason ready to go. Just how quick he is and you can tell he has been working on his craft." The Browns are excited to get Callaway against CB3s this season with Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry receiving most of the attention, but targets will be slim for the second-year receiver. Callaway will be a low-end, boom-or-bust fantasy asset as a deep threat for Mayfield.3 days
99.Dynasty | Ronald Jones bulks up (Dynasty League Football) Tampa running back Ronald Jones has added 13 pounds of muscle in the off-season and is now 221 lbs. Analysis: He's up 13 pounds from his 2018 listed weight. Jones had a dismal rookie season and DLF's RB39 rushed for 44 yards and one touchdown on 23 attempts while chiming in with seven receptions for an additional 33 yards. The added weight should help but won't fix the deer-in-headlights indecision that plagued him on nearly every carry. Hopefully an additional year of training camp and a back-to-basics approach will unleash th... (More)3 days
100.Dynasty | Melvin Gordon not backing down (Dynasty League Football) Melvin Gordon is serious about being paid or traded and says "you can't just replace a great back". Analysis: Working in Gordon's favor, unlike Le'Veon Bell in Pittsburgh, is that the Chargers don't have the depth chart to easily replace him. It certainly appears as there is no bluff in Gordon's words and that he's prepared to sit as long as needed to in order to address the issue. Still under contract, however, he will have to appear shortly after the conclusion of week 10 to get credit for the contract y... (More)3 days
