  Lions | Jake Rudock heavy favorite for No. 2 QB job    Sun Jun 18, 04:53 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock is the heavy favorite to win the backup quarterback job entering training camp because he has more knowledge and experience in offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's offensive scheme than QB Brad Kaaya.

Footballguys view: Rudock is a savvy quarterback, and he's got a leg up over Kaaya because of his experience. Kaaya is a good pocket passer but somewhat robotic when he has to go off script.

  Browns | Caleb Brantley inconsistent during workouts    Sun Jun 18, 04:40 PM

Cleveland Browns DT Caleb Brantley looked like a first-round pick at times during offseason workouts but looked like he did not deserve playing time at other points of the offseason, according to defensive line coach Clyde Simmons.

  Browns | Myles Garrett may be limited early    Sun Jun 18, 04:34 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett (foot) could be limited during the early part of training camp because he is recovering from a foot injury.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. The Browns are going to take it easy on the first-overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. We'll know more about his availability when training camp gets closer.

  Browns | Ricardo Louis could be No. 3 WR    Sun Jun 18, 04:24 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Ricardo Louis appears to be one of the leading candidates for the No. 3 receiver job this season because of his versatility and run after the catch ability, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe.

Footballguys view: There has recently been a flood of positive stories about Louis coming out of Browns camp. His main competition for the no3 spot could be Rashard Higgins or Jordan Payton. The Browns QB situation is a hot mess, but they'll be supported by a strong offensive line and a solid rushing attack. Louis likely has little fantasy value in redraft leagues even if he's the no3 WR for the Browns, but dynasty owners should be monitoring his progress through training camp.

  Jaguars | Allen Hurns may be used in slot    Sun Jun 18, 04:16 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns likely will line up as a slot receiver in 2017, in the opinion of the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.

Footballguys view: Injuries limited Hurns to 477 receving yards in 2016 and he missed the last five games with a hamstring injury. Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell guaranteed Blake Bortles will have fewer pass attempts this season. That decrease in passing attempts will have a trickle down effect for the Jaguars receivers. Hurns is currently WR60 (13.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell eased along during spring    Sun Jun 18, 03:49 PM

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell was kept on the sideline throughout spring practices by design. According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots are subscribing to a 'less is more' approach with the second-year wideout and doing what they can to help sustain him for the long haul given his extensive history with knee injuries.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are jam-packed at the wide receiver position, so they can afford to take it easy on Mitchell in the spring. We'll see what kind of workload the second-year pro gets through training camp and the preseason. He's fourth (at best) on the depth chart at the wide receiver position.

  Browns | Corey Coleman to be eased back    Sun Jun 18, 02:27 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Corey Coleman (shoulder, hamstring) hurt his shoulder and hamstring on an awkward fall in OTAs, and the team is expected to 'err on the side of caution' early in training camp.

Footballguys view: That's a wise move for a player who should be the Browns top receiver. With Terrelle Pryor (Washington) gone in free agency, we should see Coleman take a step forward in 2017. He was limited by injuries as a rookie last year, but if healthy we could see him catching 65 or so passes...regardless of the murky quarterback situation.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. more ready than ever    Sun Jun 18, 12:59 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. believes everything is starting to come together for him as he enters his fourth season.

Footballguys view: Going for nearly 100 catches and over 1,300 yards seems like a given with Beckham. With WR Brandon Marshall added via free agency and TE Evan Engram added in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft, we'll see if Beckham can continue to be the target hog he's been since entering the league. Fantasy owners are taking Beckham at WR3 (1.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cowboys | Dallas continues endorsing Kellen Moore    Sun Jun 18, 12:24 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Kellen Moore's understanding of the offense and ability to move the chains were on display at times during last week's three-day minicamp, and his accuracy continues to be a strong point as well.

Footballguys view: Kellen Moore is the likely backup to Dak Prescott in 2017. He's facing competition from guys like rookie Cooper Rush and recently added free agent Zac Dysert. Moore is likely the winner of the competition, but the Dallas offense would not be as exciting if he was forced into the lineup due to an injury to Prescott. We don't see dynasty value in Moore, and there are several other backups we'd rather stash in that format.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph improving as a blocker    Sun Jun 18, 12:17 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph is doing a better job as a blocker, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: That's going to help the offense, but you don't get fantasy points for blocking. Rudolph should continue as a check down favorite of QB Sam Bradford, and that elevates his fantasy value. Last year, Rudolph was quietly the no3 tight end in fantasy football with a final stat line of 83 catches, 840 yards and seven touchdowns. Projecting him for 75 or more catches is reasonable, and that keeps his value in the TE1 range. You can get him at TE9 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues currently.

  Jets | Jamaal Adams 'the real deal'    Sun Jun 18, 11:17 AM

New York Jets first-round S Jamal Adams had the most impressive spring of any Jets' rookie since Sheldon Richardson in 2013, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello, who added the No. 6 overall pick will be a Day 1 starter and should have an immediate impact on the defense.

Footballguys view: The Jets don't do everything right (see quarterback, etc) but man alive do they have an exciting young secondary building with Adams as a key cornerstone. Adams will team up with fellow rookie FS Marcus Maye (second round, Florida) to provide the Jets with a physical, athletic and aggressive safety duo. The rest of the team needs plenty of work, but Adams and Maye are a great combination for the Jets to build from.

  Dolphins | Jay Ajayi rounding out his game    Sun Jun 18, 11:04 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi looks much smoother running routes and finishing receptions than he did last year, as catching the ball out of the backfield became a major focus during his offseason training.

Footballguys view: This is a constant drumbeat we've heard in the offseason. Ajayi could be used more in the passing game, and that improves his already high fantasy value. We could see him going over 1,200 yards rushing again with 35 or so receptions (he had 27 catches last year). Ajayi is currently going off the board at RB7 (2.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Detroit's left tackle job up for grabs    Sun Jun 18, 10:17 AM

Detroit Lions OTs Greg Robinson and Cyrus Kouandjio will compete for the left tackle job during training camp, although neither player participated in the team's recent minicamp, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Both of them are recent additions as the Lions got the prognosis on Taylor Decker's shoulder injury (4-6 months). Robinson was added via trade, and the former no2 overall pick (2014) is looking for a fresh start after disappointing with the Rams. Kouandjio had ...shall we say... a bizarre end to his career with the Bills and he's recovering from hip surgery. The left tackle position in Detroit is going to be a concern, but at least the right side has plenty of strength with new additions RG T.J. Lang and RT Ricky Wagner.

  Lions | Joe Dahl likely to return to guard    Sun Jun 18, 10:09 AM

Detroit Lions OL Joe Dahl appears likely to move back to guard, despite receiving first-team reps at left tackle during minicamp.

Footballguys view: The Lions seem content to let Greg Robinson and Cyrus Kouandjio compete for the left tackle position with Taylor Decker out 4-6 months with a shoulder injury. Dahl is expected to compete with OGs Graham Glasgow and Laken Tomlinson opposite OG T.J. Lang in training camp.

  Seahawks | Alex Collins in great shape    Sat Jun 17, 11:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins has focused on his conditioning and it is showing on the field, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'He is in phenomenal shape,' Carroll said. 'He showed it. He's just clicking out here for us in every drill that we've done throughout every single day that we've been out here.'

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Collins here in dynasty leagues. We loved his instincts and running style in college at Arkansas, and he's just got to wait his turn with the Seahawks. He's fourth on the RB depth chart right now, but Collins has the potential to thrive in a featured role.

  Titans | Derrick Henry showing more speed    Sat Jun 17, 11:21 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry looks faster this offseason, according to head coach Mike Mularkey, and Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com said Henry has looked more comfortable catching the ball.

Footballguys view: Henry is just waiting in the wings behind starter Demarco Murray. When Henry gets his chance, he should be able to thrive in the Titans system. As it stands right now, Henry is an expensive (but worth it) handcuff you can get around RB25 in your fantasy draft.

  Packers | Joe Callahan eyeing No. 3 QB role    Sat Jun 17, 10:55 PM

  Titans | Corey Davis playing physical    Sat Jun 17, 10:48 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis' strength has stood out during drills, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com, and Wyatt said Davis has been able to make contested catches in traffic.

Footballguys view: That's what Davis does best. He is a tough receiver who isn't afraid of contact and can rip away contested passes from defenders. That's why he should become a favorite target of QB Marcus Mariota. He's a WR3 with upside for fantasy owners in 2017.

  Browns | Expectations high for Duke Johnson    Sat Jun 17, 10:10 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson is one of the 'better playmakers' for the offense and 'big things' are expected from him this season, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

Footballguys view: That's great and all, but they've been high for Johnson before and he's not played up to his potential. With Isaiah Crowell being used more in the passing game (40 catches last year), it limits the value for Johnson.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell just entering his prime    Sat Jun 17, 09:44 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has only 'scratched the surface' of his potential, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

Footballguys view: The quarterback situation in Cleveland clouds what could be a RB1 in Crowell. This could be the first 1,000 yard season of his career, and Crowell could easily snag 40 or more catches in 2017. Scoop up Crowell at RB14 (3.05) in 12-team PPR leagues while you can.

  Lions | Zach Zenner's versatility praised    Sat Jun 17, 09:33 PM

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner is still progressing and improving, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. 'He can run the ball,' Caldwell said. 'He can pass protect. He can catch the ball out of the backfield.'

Footballguys view: Zenner is a jack of all trades and that versatility will get him on the field in certain situations. The Lions have a cluttered backfield, so Zenner's fantasy value is limited. Ameer Abdullah should be the lead back provided he can stay healthy. Theo Riddick should continue as the team's primary pass-catching back. That leaves little for Zenner outside of perhaps some short-yardage or goal-line work.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz finishes minicamp strong    Sat Jun 17, 08:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz 'appeared to hit his stride' during the team's three-day minicamp, throwing crisper and more accurate passes than he did at the beginning.

Footballguys view: Wentz is working to avoid any sophomore slump. The Eagles did a lot of work this offseason to put better pass-catching talent around him. New WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith should help Wentz avoid any slump and put up better numbers than he did last season during his rookie year. Wentz is a QB2 for fantasy owners this year and is going off the board at QB18 (12.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant 'our most consistent guy'    Sat Jun 17, 06:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant is 'our most consistent guy, without a doubt, as far as being able to line up everywhere, run the routes exactly how we want them at the right depth coming out of them,' head coach Jay Gruden told reporters during minicamp.

Footballguys view: Another day and another report praising Grant. Earlier this month, Washington coach Jay Gruden said Grant can line up 'all over the place' and is 'going to play' this season. Grant is fourth on the WR depth chart (at best) in Washington and fifth or sixth in the pecking order for targets when you include TE Jordan Reed and RB Chris Thompson. These reports are interesting for dynasty owners, but the path is cluttered in front of Grant if he wants to produce in 2017.

Houston Texans third-round draft choice RB D'Onta Foreman signed his four-year contract Saturday, June 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Foreman is a big back, measuring in at 6'0" 233 pounds. He's not as powerful as his size would indicate as Foreman has the athleticism to play more like a finesse runner. He's competing with Alfred Blue for the backup role behind Lamar Miller in 2017.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone would not say if he believes CB Aaron Colvin (undisclosed), FS Tashaun Gipson (undisclosed) and Barry Church (back) will be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have a revamped secondary they'll debut in 2017, but there are some injury concerns already. Not only are these three banged up, second-year star Jalen Ramsey (core) is currently recovering from surgery and his availability for the start of training camp is unknown.

Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett (foot) has been diagnosed with a left lateral foot sprain and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

  Colts | Clayton Geathers likely to miss start of camp    Sat Jun 17, 03:59 PM

Indianapolis Colts S Clayton Geathers (neck) likely will not be ready for the start of training camp because he is recovering from offseason neck surgery and may even miss the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are nothing nice, and they are tricky to come back from. Geathers was a playmaker for the Colts against the run last year, and his presence will be missed if he sits for a time during the regular season. T.J. Green and Malik Hooker might open the season as the Colts starting safeties.

  Patriots | Patrick Chung can earn bigger salary    Sat Jun 17, 02:54 PM

New England Patriots SS Patrick Chung will have a chance to earn an extra $800,000 in incentives this upcoming season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Earlier this year, the Patriots signed Chung to a one-year, $5.7 million extension through 2018. That deal already included $900K in incentives. Chung is a big part of what the Patriots want to do on defense, and hitting those incentives may not be a problem for the veteran safety.

Footballguys view: At 34-years old, Williams is not the player he once was during his heyday with the Packers. Williams started five games at cornerback for the Browns last season and two games at safety. If someone picks him up, it's likely going to come with the expectation that the veteran will play safety.

  Jets | Charone Peake has lead on third receiver spot    Sat Jun 17, 11:32 AM

New York Jets WR Charone Peake is expected to be one of the team's top three receivers on Opening Day, along with Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: We're always intrigued by Clemson WRs when they get to the pro level. A seventh-round pick in 2016, Peake sat behind guys like DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant at Clemson. At 6'2" 209 pounds, Peake has a nice size/speed combination. He can be a factor as a receiver at all three levels of the field. As a no3 wideout with the Jets, Peake should be able to take advantage of coverage in multiple ways. We'd feel better about his dynasty outlook if the Jets had a real QB. Maybe next year....

  49ers | George Kittle make good first impression    Sat Jun 17, 11:15 AM

San Francisco 49ers fifth-round TE George Kittle was the team's most prolific target during the recent minicamp and drew praise from QB Brian Hoyer for his football awareness and intelligence.

Footballguys view: At 6'4" 250 pounds, Kittle has good athleticism and the speed to attack the deep middle seam. He's a move tight end/H-back type, but Kittle is also a sound blocker. It's not the best role for him, but he's willing to block and plays with good effort and technique.

  49ers | Trent Taylor as advertised    Sat Jun 17, 11:03 AM

San Francisco 49ers fifth-round WR Trent Taylor has been sure-handed in early workouts and 'very good at shaking free of coverage with a quick, up-field step as soon as the ball arrived,' according the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. In college at Louisiana Tech, Taylor's game was all about shake and bake and creating separation. He rarely drops a pass and seems to toy with defenders on underneath routes. Taylor is competing for a roster spot and is no lock to make the 53-man roster as a rookie. However, if he one day develops into a Taylor Gabriel-like weapon for 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan we won't be surprised.

  Cowboys | Charles Tapper loses weight    Sat Jun 17, 08:26 AM

Dallas Cowboys DE Charles Tapper has lost nearly 20 pounds since the end of last season and is down to 11 percent body fat from 13 percent in an attempt to increase his agility.

Footballguys view: Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli wants Tapper to shift from an interior spot on the defensive line to a spot where he lines up on the outside shoulder of the tackle. A fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2016, Tapper missed his entire rookie season due to injury. With his back problems behind him, Tapper is likely to be a key piece of the Cowboys rotation up front.

Footballguys view: Turner was 10-30 during his time as head coach of the Golden Panthers. "He'll work closely with the offense as far as evaluating the things that we're doing, evaluating our opponents," head coach Ron Rivera said. "And then he'll also do some stuff for (defensive coordinator) Steve Wilks, looking at what we're doing and explaining how people might try to attack our defense."

  Falcons | Reggie Davis' speed stands out    Sat Jun 17, 12:27 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Reggie Davis' speed 'jumps out,' according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Quinn said Davis has made 'an impact' during spring practices.

Footballguys view: Davis has impressed since his tryout during the Falcons rookie minicamp. He didn't do much for the Georgia Bulldogs in college (38 career catches for 618 receiving yards and two touchdowns) but has the speed to get by defenders in a hurry. That was evident on his first college catch -- the longest offensive play in Dawgs history -- a 98 yard touchdown against North Texas in 2013. At 6'0" 170 pounds, Davis could get work as a return man as well.

Minnesota Vikings WR Rodney Adams will have the first chance to handle kick return duties, and Ben Goessling of ESPN.com believes Adams could have a role in the offense as a slot receiver this season.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick out of South Florida this year, Adams has the speed to eat cushion quickly. He does a good job of varying his speed in the route and can lull defenders to sleep just to burst by them for a big play. Adams can be used effectively on screen and pop passes.

  Packers | Trevor Davis making strides    Sat Jun 17, 12:12 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Trevor Davis has made significant improvements and is playing with more confidence, according to wide receivers coach Luke Getsy.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick out of Cal in 2016, Davis brings track speed to the football field. He didn't do much as a rookie and was inactive for a handful of games in 2016. A more confident Davis can play faster -- and play better -- in 2017. Keep an eye on his progress in dynasty leagues.

  Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson on the rise    Sat Jun 17, 12:03 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson has had a good offseason, according to head coach Andy Reid. 'He can go after it,' Reid said. 'He can run, and he can do the short stuff, too. His strength coming in was that he was good after the catch wherever you get it to him.'

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Florida in 2016, Robinson has vertical talent as a pass-catcher. He goes deep and does a good job tracking passes over his shoulder. Robinson may not do much with Alex Smith under center, but keep an eye on the chemistry he can establish with rookie gunslinger Patrick Mahomes.
