  Redskins | Roy Helu may have advantage over Evan Royster    Mon Jul 21, 06:28 PM

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Helu does have an advantage, especially under new head coach Jay Gruden. He's a fine receiver out of the backfield and has good run-after-the-catch ability.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger punched in bar    Mon Jul 21, 06:22 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was allegedly sucker punched in a Nashville bar this weekend but did not need medical attention. The owner of the bar said Mettenberger did not throw any punches.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger was known as a bit of a rowdy quarterback on the field, so perhaps that translates to his bar attitude as well. He's competing to be the team's third-string quarterback behind Jake Locker and Charlie Whitehurst.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins update    Mon Jul 21, 05:35 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was poked in the eye during practice Monday, July 21. Watkins returned after temporarily leaving the field.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bills here. Watkins is going to be a big part of the offense this year. He'll have fantasy value as a WR3 or WR4 this season. His current ADP is WR33 (7.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

New England Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), WR Aaron Dobson (foot), WR Jeremy Gallon (undisclosed), DT Tommy Kelly (knee) and WR Matthew Slater (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the team's physically unable to perform list.

Footballguys view: Dobson is the player fantasy owners need to watch here. He had an inconsistent rookie season last year, but the team needs him to start playing up to his potential this year. Dobson could start on the outside opposite Danny Amendola this season.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus excused, will return    Mon Jul 21, 04:52 PM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus left practice Monday, July 21, for personal reasons, according to head coach Doug Marrone. He is expected back for the evening practice.

Footballguys view: Dareus is under contract for the next two years, but his act has been wearing a bit thin. Arrested twice this offseason, Dareus failed to pass the team's conditioning test at the start of training camp. He's incredibly talented, but Dareus has to stay on track if he's going to play up to his potential in Buffalo.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins fine after practice scare    Mon Jul 21, 04:12 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins returned to practice Monday, July 21, after leaving with an apparent forehead injury.

Footballguys view: The Bills Mafia can exhale here. The team moved up in the first-round to select Watkins this year, and he's going to be a big part of the offense. He's not big like Calvin Johnson (Lions), but Watkins can fly down the field and he's dangerous after the catch.

  Bills | Brandon Spikes leaves practice    Mon Jul 21, 03:50 PM

Buffalo Bills LB Brandon Spikes was not wearing pads while being looked at by trainers during practice Monday, July 21. He was reportedly being cooled with towels and eventually left the field.

Footballguys view: The Bills defense doesn't need any more injuries. They already lost Kiko Alonso for the season. We'll know more about this Spikes injury soon.

  NFL | Phillip Hunt to work out soon    Mon Jul 21, 03:05 PM

Former Philadelphia Eagles DE Phillip Hunt (knee) has recovered from anterior cruciate ligament surgery and should begin workouts with teams in the near future.

Footballguys view: Teams will want to see if Hunt is healthy before signing him. If healthy, Hunt could work as a part-time pass-rusher. He might have to wait until after Week 1 to find a new team. After Week 1, veterans salaries are not guaranteed for the rest of the year.

Buffalo Bills WR Marquise Goodwin (asthma) returned to practice Monday, July 21. He left practice Sunday, July 20 because of asthma.

Footballguys view: Goodwin's injury situation was never serious. His Olympic speed will come in handy when the team wants to attack deep. Goodwin has been pushed down the depth chart to WR4 for the Bills with the additions of Mike Williams and first-round pick Sammy Watkins.

  Bears | Tim Jennings could blitz more    Mon Jul 21, 02:14 PM

Chicago Bears CB Tim Jennings said he needs to work on his pass-rush moves as he is expecting to blitz more this season from the nickel cornerback position.

Footballguys view: The Bears made multiple moves on the defensive side of the ball to improve that unit. Using Jennings more creatively will help them perform better in 2014.

  Cardinals | Two candidates at PUP list    Mon Jul 21, 01:41 PM

Arizona Cardinals DT Alameda Ta'amu (knee) and FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) are candidates to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Ta'amu has struggled with injuries during his pro career. If healthy, he can eat up space in the middle of the defensive line. Mathieu is one of the best young free safeties in the game today. The team will be quite cautious with him as he comes back from this knee injury.

  Giants | Former OC believes David Wilson can help    Mon Jul 21, 01:32 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) should be able to help the offense if he is able to stay healthy this upcoming season, according to former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

Footballguys view: We agree with the former OC here. Wilson is a talented player who can make big plays happen any time he touches the ball. However, there are still a few things he needs to improve before the team can rely on him as anything more than a part-time back. Gilbride said Wilson needs to work on his pass blocking and route running.

  Chiefs | De'Anthony Thomas works mostly with RBs    Mon Jul 21, 01:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB De'Anthony Thomas spent most of his time with the running backs during practice Monday, July 21. Thomas run a lot of passing routes out of the backfield and motioned out of the back field at times during plays.

Footballguys view: The speedy rookie is listed as a running back, but he's more like Dexter McCluster used to be for the Chiefs--an offensive weapon. Thomas was drafted this year since McCluster left in free agency. We're not expecting much from the rookie this year, but we are intrigued by how his skill set will translate to the pro level. McCluster is not as fast, but he's quicker and a better runner in cramped space than Thomas was at Oregon.

  Chiefs | Several injuries practice    Mon Jul 21, 01:07 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee), WR Kyle Williams (knee), WR A.J. Jenkins (hamstring) and CB Christopher Owens (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, July 21.

Footballguys view: The team really likes Kelce, and he should be the starter at tight end if healthy this year. Kelce is tough and knows how to use his size in order to "box out" defenders. The Chiefs desperately need weapons in the passing game besides Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles. We'll see if Kelce can be that guy. Keep him as a low-end TE2 with upside or on your waiver wire speed dial this year.

  Chiefs | Aaron Murray says he is ready to go    Mon Jul 21, 01:06 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Aaron Murray (knee) said he will be fully able to participate once training camp practices begin.

Footballguys view: We're intrigued by Murray as a developmental prospect. He's smart and accurate, but Murray is not tall and lacks a rocket arm. His ultimate upside might only be that of a career backup. We'll see if he can beat out Tyler Bray for the third-string job in Kansas City.

  Bills | Two signed, two cut    Mon Jul 21, 12:34 PM

The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent WR Naaman Roosevelt (Lions) and DT Landon Cohen (Bears) to undisclosed deals. The team released WR Ramses Barden and LB Nathan Williams.

Footballguys view: Barden's days in the NFL are likely over. He was an intriguing third-round pick by the Giants in 2009, but his size and wingspan never helped him at the pro level. Barden lacks the explosiveness and "my ball" mentality to stick around in the NFL.

  Chiefs | Two to PUP    Mon Jul 21, 12:09 PM

  Broncos | Four could go on PUP    Mon Jul 21, 11:43 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) and TE Joel Dreessen (knee) could begin the preseason on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be shocked to see all four of these players go on PUP to begin training camp. The Broncos want Miller and Harris to be ready for the start of regular season. Both are coming back from late-season knee injuries suffered in 2013. Miller seems to be ahead in the recovery process, but expect the team to take it easy on him when he does come back.
