Redskins | Shawn Lauvao may not be ready for OTAs Sun May 22, 05:41 PM
Washington Redskins OG Shawn Lauvao (foot, ankle) likely will not be able to participate in organized team activities because of the injury he suffered during the 2015 season.
|Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Lauvao has undergone five surgeries (and maybe more) since October. Lauvao is set to make $10 million over the next two years, but there's only $2 million remaining in dead money on his contract right now. He may not be ready for OTAs, and some question whether or not he's even going to make the final roster with Washington.|
Giants | Will Tye could start Sun May 22, 01:40 PM
New York Giants TE Will Tye's pass-catching potential and athleticism make him the favorite to start at tight end in 2016 for the Giants, in the opinion of Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. TEs Larry Donnell, Matt LaCosse and Jerell Adams will also be competing.
|Footballguys view: Donnell may be listed as the starter on most depth charts right now, but that may not be the case when we get through training camp. Tye emerged last year, and his athleticism combined with solid route-running ability make him a TE2 with upside if he wins the starting job. In the final eight games of his rookie season, Tye was targeted 50 times for 34 receptions, 387 yards and 3 touchdowns.|

Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey signed Sun May 22, 10:29 AM
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed CB Jalen Ramsey to a four-year rookie contract. Ramsey's four-year rookie contract includes $23.3 million in guaranteed money, along with a $15.1 million signing bonus, according to a source. The deal (like all first-round picks) also includes a fifth-year option.
|Footballguys view: Ramsey suffered a knee injury (torn meniscus) at the team's recent minicamp. Most of the reports indicate that Ramsey will be back for training camp. When healthy, Ramsey is a rangy player who diagnoses plays quickly as they unfold in front of him.|
Texans | Lamar Miller comfortable with offense Sun May 22, 12:34 AM
Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said the offensive concepts are similar to those he used as a member of the Miami Dolphins, with some differences in terminology, and he said finding his way around Houston has been tougher than learning the playbook.
|Footballguys view: A comfortable Miller can be a dangerous RB with a ton of potential for fantasy owners. Even though he's been a top-10 fantasy RB each of the last two years, we don't think we've seen the best from Miller. He could post career-best numbers in his first year with the Texans. They'll rely on Miller to do the heavy lifting for the offense, and his production will help keep their strong defense fresh. We love his current ADP of RB7 (2.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.|

Bengals | Jeremy Hill hoping to up efficiency Sun May 22, 12:18 AM
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill's yards per carry dropped from 5.1 as a rookie to 3.6 last season, and he was missing running lanes that he hit quickly in his rookie year.
|Footballguys view: Hill was slow with his decision making last year, and that led to his YPC downturn. This year, if he runs with better intent and determination then he should be swifter and build more power. Last year, the smaller back Gio Bernard had a better yards-after-contact-per rush average (1.9) than Hill (1.46).|

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants healthy Sammy Watkins Sat May 21, 11:29 PM
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he is not worried about the injury to WR Sammy Watkins (foot) hurting their chemistry with each other. 'We've been talking together and getting on the same page,' Taylor said. 'We want on the field work obviously, but we'll get that when the time comes. The main thing is that he gets healthy so he can play at the level that we know he's capable of playing at.'
|Footballguys view: Watkins is tremendously talented, but he's already battled through various injuries in two years as a pro and now he's got to come back from foot surgery. Perhaps his career will turn out like former Rams WR Isaac Bruce who had to fight injuries for a bit before playing like a star in the NFL. The Bills offense will flow through the rushing attack, but when Taylor goes to the air he'll be looking for Watkins early and often. Watkins has a current ADP of WR16 (3.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.|

NFL | Arian Foster close to passing physical Sat May 21, 10:32 PM
Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') expects to pass his physical in the next couple of weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
|Footballguys view: Things are starting to heat up a bit with Foster. If he's able to pass a physical, then we could see a team like the Dolphins signing him to a short-term deal packed with incentives. There have been a small handful of teams that have already reached out to Foster this offseason.|

Vikings | Laquon Treadwell to be 'big' for MIN Sat May 21, 06:57 PM
Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell has made a positive on-field impression on his new team thus far, according to QB Teddy Bridgewater.
|Footballguys view: Treadwell certainly has star potential in the NFL. The offense is geared towards running the ball as much as possible with Adrian Peterson. That could keep Treadwell's numbers from reaching their full potential in 2016. We like the rookie as a WR4 for fantasy owners this season.|
Teddy Bridgewater player page
Bengals | Tyler Boyd likely to open season in slot Sat May 21, 04:06 PM
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd will get chance to earn immediate playing time, according to new offensive coordinator Ken Zampese.
|Footballguys view: The Bengals have A.J. Green and (for now) Brandon LaFell on the outside at WR. LaFell will likely end up disappointing them (like he does at every stop), so Boyd's role may grow from a WR3 to a WR2 for the team. For fantasy purposes, think of the rookie as a WR6 with upside.|
Buccaneers | Luke Stocker important to Tampa Bay Sat May 21, 03:14 PM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Luke Stocker is considered an invaluable part of the Buccaneers' offense, according to tight ends coach Jon Embree. 'He's a great pass protector, he's a good run blocker and he can be a threat in the passing game,' Embree said. 'He knows what everyone is supposed to do. There were a lot of times last year where he made things right. Maybe a play wasn't called right, or a formation, but he knew what was supposed to be done and he got it done.'
|Footballguys view: Stocker is third in the pecking order on the Bucs depth chart at TE behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Cameron Brate. From a fantasy lens, he's got little value as the other two are likely to be the primary pass-catchers at the position while Stocker is mainly used for blocking.|

Patriots | Arian Foster doesn't visit Patriots Sat May 21, 02:56 PM
Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) did not visit the New England Patriots during his recent trip to Boston.
|Footballguys view: Reports indicate the Patriots have interest...at least preliminary interest...in the veteran back. Foster may be able to pass a physical in a week or two, so his market may heat up. There have already been a small handful of teams reach out to Foster this offseason.|

Bills | Better year for Charles Clay? Sat May 21, 02:53 PM
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay is expected to be more productive in his second season with the Bills, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. More looks his way and better health are considered to be two key factors in what Buffalo hopes to be a better season for Clay.
|Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Clay is currently going undrafted in 12-team PPR leagues, and he should certainly be able to outperform expectations after a disappointing year in 2015. Back with the Dolphins in 2013, Clay was the 7th-best fantasy TE with 69 catches, 759 yards and six touchdowns. The injury to Sammy Watkins, and the questionable talent behind Watkins at the WR position, could force Clay to get more than the 51 receptions he had last year.|

Bills | Tyrod Taylor impressed with two WRs Sat May 21, 11:17 AM
Buffalo Bills WRs Greg Salas and Leonard Hankerson have had strong performances during offseason workouts, according to QB Tyrod Taylor.
|Footballguys view: Taylor may be impressed, but we're going to have to wait and see with these veterans. Salas can get open on quick routes, but his hands need to be more consistent. Hankerson is a big-bodied target who could be used more in the red zone. Neither has great fantasy value.|

Bills | Robert Woods looking good Sat May 21, 11:16 AM
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods has looked explosive during offseason workouts after dealing with injuries in 2015, according to QB Tyrod Taylor.
|Footballguys view: Woods has natural/physical talent, but he's never been able to put it all together as a pro. In this run-first offense, we just don't see a lot of fantasy production for Woods in 2016.|

Broncos | Paxton Lynch may sign soon Sat May 21, 10:33 AM
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has not signed his rookie contract at this point, but agent Leigh Steinberg said he plans to reach an agreement with the Broncos quickly.
|Footballguys view: Rookie holdouts are a thing of the past. Ever since the rookie wage scale was introduced, teams just slot their rookie salaries based on what the players before and the players behind got. Lynch was the 26th-overall pick, but he will have a bit of a QB premium price. Either way, he's going to give the Broncos a value for five years at the position...especially if he's the franchise QB they think he is.|
Broncos | Devontae Booker gunning for starting job Fri May 20, 10:46 PM
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker said he wants to become one of the best running backs in franchise history, and he plans to 'take someone's job' this year.
|Footballguys view: We love Booker's confidence, but there's no way he takes someone's job...unless that someone (starter C.J. Anderson) gets hurt. Some are trying to paint a picture of RBBC in Denver in 2016. The Broncos are painting a different picture..with their checkbook. Anderson got a $5 million bonus earlier this year, and they're going to feed him the rock as much as possible. Booker is talented, but he's a three-down-back-in-waiting with the Broncos.|
Dolphins | Cameron Wake ahead of schedule Fri May 20, 09:42 PM
Miami Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') has exceeded expectations in terms of where doctors thought he would be at in his recovery, executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said Friday, May 20.
|Footballguys view: Earlier this month, the Dolphins gave Wake a two-year, $15 million extension and that was a big sign of what they think of his recovery. He'll be a situational player for the Dolphins at this point of his career.|
Cameron Wake player page
Titans | Marcus Mariota comfortable with offense Fri May 20, 09:36 PM
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been more vocal this offseason, according to TE Delanie Walker, and he looks more comfortable with the offensive system and is making quicker decisions.
|Footballguys view: We are excited to see Mariota in year two as a pro. His athleticism and improved weapons around him should help him perform even better in 2016. From a fantasy lens, his production could be capped by the nature of this offense. Their "exotic smashmouth" offense should feature plenty of RBs DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry. That doesn't leave a lot for the passing game. He's a mid-range QB2 in 12-team fantasy leagues.|

Broncos | Devontae Booker out for OTAs Fri May 20, 09:18 PM
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) will not participate in the first round of OTAs that begins Tuesday, May 24, as he continues to recover from a torn meniscus, but he is expected to be ready before the start of the season.
|Footballguys view: Booker is a three-down-back-in-waiting for the Broncos. They are going to give C.J. Anderson the largest workload he can handle after paying him a $5 million bonus earlier this year. The rookie is going to have to wait his turn behind Anderson. We like Booker because of his determination, power and the fact he's a fantastic receiver out of the backfield. Any fantasy owner who adds Anderson should be adding Booker as a must-handcuff player.|
Bills | No deals for Andre Roberts, Jamari Lattimore Fri May 20, 07:25 PM
Free-agent WR Andre Roberts (Redskins) and LB Jamari Lattimore (Jets) met with the Buffalo Bills earlier this week, but both players left the visits without a contract.
|Footballguys view: The Bills are kicking the tires on Roberts as they will be missing WR Sammy Watkins until the start of the regular season. They could always end up signing Roberts at some time before training camp if they need an extra body at the position. Roberts did nothing during his time with Washington, but there should be at least a few teams interested in the veteran receiver.|

Patriots | Arian Foster an option for Patriots? Fri May 20, 07:23 PM
Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) has received preliminary interest from the New England Patriots, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: We think Foster winds up in the AFC East...with the Dolphins. It makes sense that the Patriots would have interest, even with Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount in the fold. There are rumblings about a small handful of teams, including the Patriots, Dolphins and Broncos having interest in the veteran back.|

Panthers | Carolina makes roster moves Fri May 20, 06:56 PM
Free-agent WR LaRon Byrd (Redskins) and WR Tobais Palmer (Steelers) signed with the Carolina Panthers Friday, May 20. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed. The team also waived TE Andrew Bonnet and Waived/Injured TE Jake McGee (undisclosed).
|Footballguys view: Byrd is a player we've monitored in super deep dynasty leagues because of his strength and wingspan. He's bounced around to multiple teams already as a pro and is likely just a camp body for the Panthers.|
Buccaneers | Jameis Winston can improve Fri May 20, 06:13 PM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston can improve on his technique and accuracy because he completed only 58.3% of his passes in 2015, according to quarterback coach Mike Bajakian.
|Footballguys view: We love Winston and know that of course he can improve. His pass-placement is an issue as Winston needs to better lead his receivers to improve yards after the catch. We'll see if Winston can take strides to being a better QB in his sophomore season with the Bucs.|
Jameis Winston player page
Buccaneers | OC had questions about Jameis Winston Fri May 20, 05:56 PM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he was not a big fan of QB Jameis Winston when he entered the NFL, but his opinion has changed after working with him this offseason. Monken said the passing game needs to improve under Winston because it was inconsistent in 2015. 'I think from the outside you would've looked at it with all the things that were publicized in the past about him and who he is. I was dead wrong. He wants to win as much as we do. He's a competitive joker, man, he's smart, he's intelligent ... you can win a lot of games with guys like that,' Monken said.
|Footballguys view: Winston has high football character and IQ and he clearly already has the Bucs behind him, even down to the coaches. He should take a step forward in his second year if his receivers and tight ends can stay healthy, and he has also been reunited with his college kicker Roberto Aguayo after vouching for him before the Bucs traded back up into the second round to get him.|

Dolphins | Jay Ajayi pulling away from RBs Fri May 20, 03:51 PM
Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi has been performing well during workouts this offseason and has separated himself from the other running backs on the roster, according head coach Adam Gase. 'He's been one of those guys he's been here every day. He's done everything right. You can tell he's looking to improve. He doesn't say much, just keeps working,' Gase said. 'The rest of that group has done a good job to try and keep up with him, but obviously he's kind of separated himself from that group as far as the consistency of what he does day in and day out.'
|Footballguys view: Ajayi still has the risk of Arian Foster or another veteran back sharing work with him, and the team is likely to give third-round pick Kenyan Drake everything he can handle. He has upside if he can get the lion's share of touches, and unlike Matt Jones or Jeremy Langford, he hasn't shown limited upside when given a bigger opportunity.|
Jay Ajayi player page
Ravens | Zach Orr could start in 2016 Fri May 20, 03:37 PM
Baltimore Ravens LB Zach Orr is the leading candidate to start at inside linebacker in 2016, but he will have to win the job during training camp. LBs Arthur Brown and Albert McClellan could also be options for the job, but the team may also consider signing a veteran free agent if no one on the roster is able to handle the job.
|Footballguys view: Brown has been a huge disappointment since being a second round pick in 2013. He could be a late bloomer, but if he can't clearly beat out players like Orr and McClellan at this point, it's time to move on in even the deepest of IDP leagues.|

Cowboys | Jaylon Smith will be used in middle Fri May 20, 03:22 PM
Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) will be used at middle linebacker when he is healthy enough to play.
|Footballguys view: Smith has massive upside in IDP leagues and is deserving of a risk/reward pick in the second round of rookie drafts. Rolando McClain is slated to man the middle this year.|
Browns | Josh McCown performing well Fri May 20, 03:20 PM
Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has performed well during organized team activities this week and appears to have a good grasp on the new offense.
|Footballguys view: Robert Griffin III won't be handed the starting job. McCown was actually solid as a streaming quarterback last year, and if he wins out to start Week 1, he will be a viable fantasy option in the season opener at Philadelphia.|
Josh McCown player page
Browns | Dennis Parks signed Fri May 20, 03:10 PM

Bears | Chicago to use committee backfield Fri May 20, 02:23 PM
Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford will battle with RBs Jordan Howard, Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for touches in a crowded backfield during offseason workouts. Head coach John Fox is intent on running with a committee approach after the departure of RB Matt Forte. Langford has a leg up after scoring seven touchdowns in his rookie season. However, he had only 3.6 yards per carry and 1.13 yards after contact, which ranked second to last out of 47 players with 100 carries, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Langford must also work on improving his hands after struggling with drops in 2015. Howard's bruising style appeals to the team as a complement to Langford's speed. Carey is the only back that wasn't acquired by the current coaching staff, and he's being pushed to become more versatile and to play better on third downs. Rodgers it the veteran and could be trusted more than any other rusher on third downs early in the year.
|Footballguys view: Langford is the most likely to have the most touches, but this approach will make week-to-week predictability a mess. None of the three backs are particularly talented and all have different strengths. Even with Langford's possible volume, he's a risky pick compared to backs in his ADP range like Giovani Bernard and Matt Jones.|

Jets | NY has high hopes for Hackenberg Fri May 20, 02:07 PM
New York Jets director of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger said the Jets have high hopes for QB Christian Hackenberg, their second-round draft pick. Heimerdinger also said the addition of Hackenberg doesn't reflect poorly on QB Bryce Petty.
|Footballguys view: If the Jets do sign Ryan Fitzpatrick, one of Bryce Petty and Geno Smith will likely get released unless the team is ready to carry four quarterbacks. Even though this comment isn't supposed to reflect on Petty, it's hard to imagine the team turning to him as the backup, so this depth chart is far from settled.|
Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey expected to start at corner Fri May 20, 12:05 PM
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) is expected to start at cornerback this year across from CB Davon House.
|Footballguys view: Ramsey will be an instant starter when he is ready, but his meniscus injury could endanger his status for camp or even the open of the season if they repair it instead of just trimming it. The Jaguars offensive production is in part based on the quality of the defense, and if Ramsey's impact this year is dampened, then it will probably keep the passing offense among the most productive in the league.|
Cowboys | Jaylon Smith signs rookie deal Fri May 20, 11:53 AM
Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) signed his four-year, $6.494 million rookie deal Friday, May 20. He will receive a $2.9 million signing bonus. Smith will likely open training camp on the non-football injury list and could miss his entire rookie season.
|Footballguys view: The Cowboys team doctor performed the surgery, so they have more insight into his condition than any other team. If he returns 90-95% of the way for the last three years of his rookie deal, Smith will be a steal. He has nerve damage in the knee that is limiting function in the leg, which is always unpredictable, so there's no guarantee that he'll play at all.|
Steelers | Sean Davis signs rookie deal Fri May 20, 10:40 AM
Pittsburgh Steelers SS Sean Davis signed his four-year rookie deal Friday, May 20. Terms were not disclosed.
|Footballguys view: Davis is a multi-role defensive back who is being put at strong safety, but can also cover tight ends in man and play in space. The Steelers are trying to groom a few players with an intersection of abilities that they did not have on the roster before this draft.|
Dolphins | Mike Pouncey says he's 100% Fri May 20, 09:51 AM
Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) said he is 100% after surgery on his hip this offseason.
|Footballguys view: The Dolphins offense hasn't clicked, and Pouncey has missed at least two games in each of the last three seasons. Hopefully this surgery can help him stay on the field and anchor the offensive line that will now include one of the best prospects in years, Ole Miss's Laremy Tunsil.|

NFL | Arian Foster on the mend Fri May 20, 09:07 AM
Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') is about a week or two away from being able to pass a physical, and his market should begin to heat up then.
|Footballguys view: Foster should have plenty of interest on the open market, and whichever team signs should have plans to use him. The Dolphins are the most obvious landing spot, but Foster has also been connected to the Seahawks and Patriots during the offseason.|

Seahawks | Doug Baldwin talks could open soon Fri May 20, 02:46 AM
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is expected to have contract talks begin with the team in the near future.
|Footballguys view: Baldwin will be a free agent in 2017. He is turning 28 during the season this year and will be paid four million dollars, a relative bargain. Baldwin doesn't project as a #1 elsewhere and probably would have his fantasy value preserved the best by staying in Seattle despite their low volume pass offense because he and Russell Wilson clearly have a good thing going in the red zone.|
Doug Baldwin player page
Bengals | Andy Dalton to boost Tyler Boyd's game? Thu May 19, 10:16 PM
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he believes playing with QB Andy Dalton will help him elevate his performance. 'With him throwing me to open space, making me catch it away from defenders, making it a lot easier for me I feel like it'll just take my game to a whole other level than what I think it's already at,' Boyd said. 'It'll completely change me.'
|Footballguys view: Dalton is solid on the shorter throws to slot receivers, which is where Boyd will be. Boyd has a lot of work to do to get up to speed, but with Dalton throwing and AJ Green occupying defenses, the rookie could develop into a decent WR4 or better this season.|
Andy Dalton player page
Eagles | Zach Ertz not worried about QB situation Thu May 19, 10:13 PM
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.

Panthers | Greg Olsen not planning on slowing down Thu May 19, 09:45 PM

Jaguars | Quick recovery possible for Jalen Ramsey Thu May 19, 09:35 PM
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) is more likely to need a menisectomy to repair his torn meniscus, based on the typical method for repairing this type of injury, meaning his recovery time would be on the shorter end of the spectrum.
|Footballguys view: Here's hoping this is correct so the Jaguars can get the best players on the field as soon as possible.|
Bengals | Tyler Boyd learning slot position Thu May 19, 09:20 PM
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he knows the team views him as a slot receiver, and wide receivers coach James Urban believes Boyd has the instincts to learn the slot position quickly.
|Footballguys view: The Bengals need some more reciever help with Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu both leaving. With attention focused on AJ Green, Boyd could be very productive if he gets up to speed quickly.|

Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey's timetable uncertain Thu May 19, 07:31 PM
Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey's (knee) timetable for recovery could be four to six weeks or four to six months, depending on the second opinion he receives, according to a source. Ramsey has two possible treatment options for his meniscus tear.
|Footballguys view: As we mentioned earlier today, this lines up with what Footballguys own Dr. Jene Bramel predicted. We will be waiting to see how this works out and when we will see Ramsey on the field.|
Dolphins | No concern with Laremy Tunsil Thu May 19, 06:59 PM
Miami Dolphins OT Laremy Tunsil (ankle) is full-go for offseason activities despite a recent report that he has a pre-arthritic ankle condition. Executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said the Dolphins never had a concern about the rookie's ankle.
|Footballguys view: Miami can sigh in relief. Tunsil is going to be a big upgrade for this line if he can keep his off-field chaos under control. That's good for Jay Ajayi, Ryan Tannehill and Jarvis Landry.|
