  Steelers | Eli Rogers on the bubble?    Fri Jun 21, 09:17 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers will compete with WR Ryan Switzer in training camp and the preseason for a spot on the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.

  Steelers | Ryan Switzer fighting for spot    Fri Jun 21, 09:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Ryan Switzer is likely competing for WR Eli Rogers to be the final receiver kept on the 53-man roster, according to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.

Footballguys view: The Steelers could target the slot receiver more often with Antonio Brown gone. Switzer is the more physically gifted player and can contribute as a returner, while Rogers has more experience with Ben Roethlisberger. The winner is unlikely to be relevant in fantasy leagues without multiple injuries to Steelers receivers/Vance McDonald.

  NFL | Shyheim Cullen in supplemental draft    Fri Jun 21, 06:41 PM

Syracuse LB Shyheim Cullen said he has entered the NFL Supplemental draft.

Footballguys view: He was expected to be a starter this year, but wasn't prominent in 2020 draft rankings. He'll probably go undrafted.

  Lions | Marvin Jones misses workouts    Fri Jun 21, 06:07 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) did not participate in any of the offseason workouts or minicamp practices because he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: This isn't very encouraging after Jones was expected to be ready for the offseason program, according to a March report from Birkett, but he still expects a strong season from Jones, although he also said the team could move on from him the way they did from Golden Tate last year if they are struggling before the trade deadline.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay parts with Shaun Wilson    Fri Jun 21, 04:14 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Shaun Wilson was waived Friday, June 21.

Footballguys view: Andre Ellington survived a running back release in Tampa. He could be kept around due to his previous service for Bruce Arians and get some passing down work.

  Raiders | Darren Waller enjoyed stellar spring    Fri Jun 21, 04:01 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller was 'one of our most impressive players (since he joined the team off the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad late last season),' according to head coach Jon Gruden.'When you put the pads on three, four, five days in a row up in Napa, I think that will be a better indication. He's got a lot to prove. He's a young player who is a converted wide receiver; don't forget that. He's not been brought up as a tight end, but he has made a lot of progress. ... He's got some big shoes to fill, I know he respects that, but he's versatile, he's smart, he's fast. He wants to do good, he's a great kid,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: Waller was a size/speed receiver at Georgia Tech in a long line that included Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas. He has had suspensions and a position change, but could be relevant at a position with only a few reliable options. We'll be watching him in training camp.

  Eagles | Brandon Brooks making strides    Fri Jun 21, 02:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles OG Brandon Brooks (Achilles) posted a video on social media of him running and another of him simulating an offensive line drill Friday, June 21.

Footballguys view: Brooks is a very underrated player on an elite offensive line. If he is good to go for the start of the season, that should improve the outlook of Jordan Howard and the Eagles running game.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels working on speed    Fri Jun 21, 02:05 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels has focused on improving his speed this offseason and believes he has done that, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Samuels should be used more in two-back backfields and as a tight end/H-back if the Steelers offense is evolving. He's an intriguing pick later in PPR leagues with his unique skillset and James Conner injury upside - albeit dampened by fourth round pick Benny Snell joining the running back room.

  Bears | Allen Robinson led offense in 2018    Fri Jun 21, 12:45 PM

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson was the team's highest-graded offensive player in 2018 at 77.7, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Robinson should be even better this year, and Mitchell Trubisky and the offense should improve too. Robinson was once an elite fantasy receiver with Blake Bortles and he is still in his prime. He seems undervalued at a mid-round ADP.

  Broncos | Brandon McManus welcomes competition    Fri Jun 21, 12:16 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus says he is comfortable with free-agent PK Taylor Bertolet receiving an invitation to training camp. 'I've had another kicker in camp with me every other year,' McManus said recently. 'It's nothing that I'm not used to and it's always good to have someone competing against you. And it's not just (Bertolet). There are 31 other jobs out there and a bunch of others kicking as well.'

  Saints | Michael Thomas talks improving    Fri Jun 21, 11:40 AM

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas' asking price has come down to $22 million per year, while the Saints are sitting at $18 million per year. Thomas is in Europe, and nothing is imminent.

Footballguys view: Thomas has earned the right to set his price. The Saints should find a way to get this done with little else established in their long term wide receiver corps right now.

  Redskins | Alex Smith hopes to play again    Fri Jun 21, 08:28 AM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) said he hopes to play football again, but he has more steps to conquer before that. Smith talked about an external fixator that came from Siberia that will 'save my leg, help me heal, allow me to walk again and hopefully play football again.'

Footballguys view: This sounds even more pessimistic than what we heard in the offseason to date. If Smith's leg needed to be "saved" and his walking again was in question, football is far far away.

  Redskins | Trey Quinn to start in slot    Fri Jun 21, 02:51 AM

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn has 'taken over the inside slot role,' according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Quinn could (should?) lead this team in targets and receptions if he stays healthy. That's worth a look in best ball and redraft PPR leagues late in your draft.

  Titans | Corey Davis still improving    Thu Jun 20, 11:28 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis spent the offseason working on his body control, and Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com said Davis was going up to make catches in traffic on a regular basis during spring practices.

Footballguys view: Davis could be a year three breakout receiver, but he needs Marcus Mariota to play well and stay healthy to be a profitable pick. His ADP more than reflects pessimism after a 2018 campaign with some of the least efficient targets and the addition of Adam Humphries and AJ Brown this offseason.

  Titans | David Fluellen bulks up    Thu Jun 20, 11:11 PM

Tennessee Titans RB David Fluellen added about 16 pounds since the end of last season and is expected to see some time at fullback in addition to his other duties.

Footballguys view: Fluellen will be trying to ward off workout wonder Alex Barnes, who signed with the team as a UDFA. Ultra deep dynasty league players should be watching for Barnes, who has some James Conner flashes in his game.

  Jaguars | DJ Chark meshing with QB    Thu Jun 20, 10:56 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark has been in rhythm with QB Nick Foles during spring practices, according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Chris Conley has gotten the most buzz of the Jags receivers, but Chark is worth monitoring for the possibility of a year two leap. Keelan Cole could also have a chance for redemption. This pass offense will likely only support one reliable receiver with Nick Foles, and Dede Westbrook is the best candidate, but the others deserve monitoring this summer.

  Jaguars | Benny Cunningham on track for spot    Thu Jun 20, 10:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Benny Cunningham's pass-catching ability gives him a good chance to make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Daniel Popper of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Cunningham could play the TJ Yeldon role from last year, or at least the passing down part of it. He's still only a marginal back in a nondescript group of backups.

  Cowboys | Michael Gallup expecting big plays    Thu Jun 20, 10:43 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup believes improved chemistry with QB Dak Prescott will result in consistent big plays down the field. 'I think we've got a better feel for each other and where I'm going to be and everything,' Gallup said. 'I'm pretty excited about that part.'

Footballguys view: Gallup should take a step forward this year, and the rest of the offense could too, but he still has a high bar to fantasy relevance with Randall Cobb and Jason Witten added to the offense this offseason. He has growth potential, but this won't be a top performing pass offense.

  49ers | Groin injury for Deebo Samuel    Thu Jun 20, 10:37 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) has been dealing with a 'tweaked groin' during spring practices, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Samuel is being cast as a slot receiver in this offense, which also has Trent Taylor in that role. Dante Pettis is easily the best wide receiver pick in drafts right now from this team, with Marquise Goodwin deserving a look at the end of your draft. Samuel will be an early season waiver wire watch player, but without a great camp/preseason, he shouldn't be drafted.

  Seahawks | John Ursua showing potential    Thu Jun 20, 09:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR John Ursua (hamstring) impressed head coach Pete Carroll when he returned from a hamstring injury during minicamp. 'He started to feel comfortable and show us the kind of quicks and change-of-direction stuff that made him one of the big scorers in college football last year,' Carroll said. 'You can see it, he's got a real style to him. He's a slot guy, he really is that mold.'

Footballguys view: Ursua will probably never approach what Doug Baldwin did, but he is in a similar vein as a quicker than fast slot receiver. He should be monitored in deep dynasty leagues.

  Buccaneers | Breshad Perriman back in action    Thu Jun 20, 09:40 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Breshad Perriman (shoulder) was able to participate in mandatory minicamp.

Footballguys view: This is good news for a former first round pick who was just starting to put it together in Cleveland last year. He hasn't been able to stay healthy for long so hearing that he was sidelined earlier in the offseason was discouraging. Remember 2018 fifth-round pick Justin Watson and this year's sixth rounder Scott Miller, who is the type of light vertical receiver that Bruce Arians has done well with in the past. Any issue with Perriman would put one of them on the field in a high value role.

  Dolphins | Kenyan Drake prepping for big year    Thu Jun 20, 09:34 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake said he has focused on following a routine this offseason to ensure that he maximizes his potential. 'I think that's the most important thing and aspect that any professional at any given level continues to kind of develop,' Drake said. 'When you get that routine down, everything else kind of falls into place from there.'

Footballguys view: Drake has a chance to see a big workload increase under the new staff. Kalen Ballage's development is a wild card here and Brian Flores and Chad O'Shea saw what he could do in a Patriots loss to Miami in 2017 when Drake had 193 total yards on 30 touches. He could pay off big on a modest ADP.

  Dolphins | Mike Gesicki figuring things out    Thu Jun 20, 09:28 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki said he feels more comfortable entering his second season and has been able to adjust quicker on the field.

Footballguys view: Gesicki won't be miscast as a blocker under Brian Flores and new offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea. He's a potential tight end streamer and might be more if he has good chemistry with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Albert WIlson is coming back from a hip injury and Jakeem Grant an achilles injury, so Gesicki could be a prominent target.

  Dolphins | Albert Wilson could miss start of camp    Thu Jun 20, 09:16 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip) will be brought along slowly and may not be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Wilson was more productive than the fantasy community remembers, but it sounds like his hip injury was more serious than let on or that he had a setback considering that there was a report in January that he was on schedule and could be ready for offseason activities. He could get on our waiver wire radar early in the season, but he's undraftable in redraft leagues right now and hanging on by a thread in dynasty. Devante Parker and Kenny Stills outlooks get brighter if Wilson isn't healthy to start camp and doesn't get back to full speed quickly.

  Giants | Mike Remmers missed workouts    Thu Jun 20, 06:24 PM

New York Giants OT Mike Remmers (back) did not participate in any of the offseason workouts because he is recovering from back surgery.

Footballguys view: Remmers is the main hope for the Giants at right tackle right now. We'll be watching his recovery and level of play closely after a rough stretch at guard for the Vikings. He has appeared more comfortable at tackle and is the best player at the weakest spot on the line.

  Packers | Trevor Davis enjoyed solid spring    Thu Jun 20, 05:22 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Trevor Davis made one play every day 'that jumps out on the film,' according to QB Aaron Rodgers, while offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said the receiver made 'electric catches.' Head coach Matt LaFleur was similarly impressed.'A guy that may have been forgotten a little bit is Trevor Davis. He made a lot of great plays down the field. He has speed. .... I've been really impressed with him. I feel like he's come a long way. The effort and the intensity level with which he practices has certainly improved,' LaFleur told Madison.com.

Footballguys view: Davis was a fifth-round pick out of Cal in the 2016 NFL draft. He's done little as a pro to this point, and Davis was hampered by hamstring injuries in 2018 so he only appeared in two games. This offseason, Davis is impressing the new coaching staff with his speed and big-play ability. We'll continue to monitor Davis in super deep dynasty formats.

  Packers | Marquez Valdes-Scantling got open in 2018    Thu Jun 20, 02:46 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling created at least one step of separation on 70.3 percent of his targets (excluding screens), ranking third among the 72 receivers with at least 50 targets in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Valdes-Scantling is big (6'4" 206 pounds) and has blazing speed. Behind Davante Adams, the Packers are looking for playmakers at the WR position. That just might be Valdes-Scantling this season. He's looking to take what he showed in a four-game stretch last year (Week 6 through Week 10) and produce that way for a whole season. He could be a value pick at his current ADP of WR50 (11.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  NFL | Marcus Simms eligible for supplemental draft    Thu Jun 20, 02:29 PM

West Virginia WR Marcus Simms has filed the necessary paperwork to enter the supplemental draft next month, according to DraftAnalyst.com's Tony Pauline.

Footballguys view: Simms is likely to work out for teams in early July. He entered the NCAA transfer portal back in April when he declared he was leaving the Mountaineers. Now, Simms will try to make his way to the pros. During his three years with West Virginia, Simms had 87 career receptions for 1,457 yards and eight touchdowns. Simms also contributed as a return man. He's the first player to declare for the Supplemental Draft, and no date has yet been set.

  Bears | Tarik Cohen expecting same role    Thu Jun 20, 01:49 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is expecting to maintain his role as the team's change-of-pace back this season despite an overhaul with the rest of the Bears' backfield. 'I feel like I'm going to be doing the same things I was doing last year,' Cohen told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday, June 20. 'My role is not going to change. I still have to be the receiving back, come in be the change of pace back, running the ball, be that speedy guy. I'm just prepared for anything however I get the ball.'

Footballguys view: We anticipate that Cohen will be the 'Lightning' to the 'Thunder' of Davis or Montgomery in 2019. Cohen should get less than 100 carries, but his role is as a dangerous receiver out of the backfield. Projecting him for 70-plus catches again sounds about right. He's got flex appeal, especially in PPR format. Cohen has a current ADP of RB28 (5.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Andrew Luck excelling in red zone    Thu Jun 20, 12:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's strong red-zone play is a key to the Colts continuing their success inside the opponents' 20-yard line, head coach Frank Reich said earlier in June at the team's minicamp. 'You need really good quarterback play,' Reich said. 'We got that last year. If you look at Andrew's (Luck) career -- that was one of the things I looked at when I got here. I looked at what Andrew's career was on third down and red zone. He's been good at third down and red zone his whole career. We saw that last year.'

Footballguys view: Luck had 32 passing touchdowns in 2018 that were in the red zone. That was good for second in the league behind Patrick Mahomes (35). His 67.4 completion percentage was good for second in the league as well, this time behind Drew Brees (71.6 percent). Luck is currently going off the board at QB2 (4.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | DeSean Jackson creates separation    Thu Jun 20, 12:14 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, according to Pro Football Focus, had at least one step of separation on 67.6 percent of his targets in 2018, which ranked fifth among the 72 wideouts with at least 50 targets.

Footballguys view: That's what Jackson does. He uses his speed to blow by defenders and get open deep. We've heard nothing but good things about Jackson now that he's back with the Eagles, and Jackson could easily outperform his current ADP of WR49 (10.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Duke Shelley signs rookie deal    Thu Jun 20, 11:22 AM

Chicago Bears sixth-round pick CB Duke Shelley signed an undisclosed four-year deal Thursday, June 20.

Footballguys view: Shelley is a slot corner who can find the football. He had 39 passes defensed in 38 games during his college career at Kansas State. Shelley is known as a smart and coachable prospect who could eventually start as a slot corner for the Bears. They are looking for help at the position since losing CB Bryce Callahan (Broncos) in free agency.

  Jets | Phil Savage hired by Jets    Thu Jun 20, 09:28 AM

Updating a previous report, former Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage was hired by the New York Jets as senior football advisor.

Footballguys view: Savage had most recently been in the AAF as the general manager of the Arizona Hotshots. Before that, Savage worked diligently as the director of the Reese's Senior Bowl for years. He's got plenty of experience in talent evaluation and will advise new Jets GM Joe Douglas.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy not counted out    Thu Jun 20, 09:03 AM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (leg) isn't being counted out of the battle for starting quarterback by the team. 'We would love for him to take some reps, but obviously his health is more important right now than anything, and that is the most important thing for him,' head coach Jay Gruden said about McCoy on the first day of minicamp. 'When his time comes it will come quickly. He will be ready.'

Footballguys view: He's not out but it's easy to see how McCoy is a long-shot for the starting job. Case Keenum is the seasoned veteran who could begin the season as the starter. Dwayne Haskins is the 2019 first-round pick and seen as the quarterback of the future. McCoy is mainly an afterthought right now.

  Packers | Green Bay to carry seven WRs?    Thu Jun 20, 02:53 AM

Green Bay Packers WRs Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, Jake Kumerow, J'Mon Moore and Trevor Davis could all make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Packers Wire's Zach Kruse, with Adams, Allison, Valdes-Scantling and St. Brown viewed as locks.

Footballguys view: Seven is a big number for the wide receiver position. Most teams keep around five or six wide receivers depending on the makeup of the rest of the roster. We've heard good things this offseason about Valdes-Scantling and Kumerow, so Fantasy GMs should watch their progress closely in training camp and the preseason. Behind Adams and Allison, those two seem the most likely to make the 53-man roster.

Green Bay Packers TE Michael Roberts (undisclosed) was waived Wednesday, June 19, with a failed physical designation, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Well that didn't last long. The Lions traded away Roberts to the Patriots a week ago, but he was released due to a failed physical designation. The Packers picked him up shortly after that trade was voided, and now Roberts is back on the open market due to another failed physical. Roberts suffered a shoulder injury last December and clearly teams have an issue with his recovery and current health status.

  NFL | Domata Peko interested in LA teams    Wed Jun 19, 05:19 PM

Free-agent DT Domata Peko (Broncos) said he would be interested in signing with the Los Angeles Rams or Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: Peko said in an interview with TMZ Sports that he would like to play next to Aaron Donald with the Rams. The veteran defensive tackle has gotten little interest on the open market. Peko was a 16-game starter for the Broncos last year and had 31 tackles on the season.

Footballguys view: It sounds like they may be the only team interested. The veteran run-stuffer has a heart of gold and a big personality, but there are questions about how much he has left in the tank. Peko started 16 games for the Broncos last year and should latch on with a team in the near future.

  Saints | Michael Thomas talks far apart    Wed Jun 19, 11:46 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas and the team remain far apart in contract talks, and nothing is imminent. However, both sides are motivated to get a deal done.

Footballguys view: Deals get done at deadlines, but Thomas has one more year left on his rookie deal. A second-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Thomas has a cap hit of $1.6 million in 2019. Whatever agreement the two sides come to will likely make Thomas one of the highest paid receivers in the league. He is in for a huge pay increase in the near future. In fact, we think the Saints get something done before the start of the regular season.

New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon, who is on the Reserve/Commissioner Suspended list, posted a video of him working out with Patriots QB Tom Brady Wednesday, June 19.

Footballguys view: Gordon signed his restricted free agent tender back in April even though he's indefinitely suspended by the NFL. Earlier reports indicated there was a chance that Gordon could be reinstated for training camp. Gordon working out with Brady shows that he's preparing for that possibility. If/when Gordon is reinstated, that could potentially be bad news for guys like veteran Demaryius Thomas or rookie N'Keal Harry in terms of the pecking order at wide receiver.

  Redskins | Ereck Flowers could start at guard    Wed Jun 19, 09:42 AM

Washington Redskins OT Ereck Flowers will be tried out as the starter at left guard.

Footballguys view: Flowers was a disappointment for the Giants at both left and right tackle. He was released last year, cleared waivers, then was picked up by the Jaguars where he continued to struggle. Flowers has not been a productive tackle in the NFL, but the former No. 9 overall pick (2015) might be better suited to play inside. Washington's left tackle Trent Williams has demanded a trade, but some think he'll show up. Morgan Moses is entrenched on the right side, so Flowers is now going to try his hand at left guard and give Washington a swing tackle option if need be.

  Seahawks | Will Dissly the only lock at TE    Wed Jun 19, 02:24 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) is the only lock to make the 53-man roster among its tight ends, in the opinion of the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, who gives the edge to TEs Nick Vannett and Jacob Hollister for the other two spots.

Footballguys view: It's funny that Dissly would be considered a lock for the 53-man roster when he hasn't even recovered from the torn patella tendon he suffered in Week 4 last season. Dissly won't be ready for the start of training camp, but reports indicate that he should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. When healthy, Dissly will be competing for a reserve or (at most) rotational role.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to be the odd-man out?    Wed Jun 19, 02:18 AM

Footballguys view: Prosise has failed to produce at the pro level, mostly due to an injury bug that he can't shake. We'd actually be shocked if he stays healthy and makes the 53-man roster. Talent isn't the issue, but Prosise could use a fresh start in his pro career.
