  Broncos | Chad Kelly not a roster lock?    Fri Jun 23, 02:41 PM

Denver Broncos seventh-round QB Chad Kelly is not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster, according to the Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe, who believes Kelly may be placed on the Reserved/Injured list in 2017 in order to let him completely recover from wrist and knee surgeries.

Footballguys view: Kelly is not in the mix for the Broncos this year. Trevor siemian and Paxton Lynch will compete for the starting job in training camp. If Kelly is healthy next year he could potentially be in the competition for the starting job.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson coming along nicely    Fri Jun 23, 01:57 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has impressed head coach Bill O'Brien with his poise, intelligence and athleticism in a recent interview with the Houston Chronicle.

Footballguys view: We think Watson wins this job over Tom Savage. With his rushing ability and the great receiving weapons around him, Watson should be a Qb2 with upside for fantasy owners.

  Giants | Does Eli Manning have plenty of gas in tank?    Thu Jun 22, 01:48 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning still has many years to play in the NFL, in the opinion of owner John Mara.

Footballguys view: It would be fascinating to know what GM Jerry Reese and coach Ben McAdoo think about the 'gas gauge' for Manning. Some of the moves they have made this offseason seem more bent on capitalizing on winning now, with an eye beyond Manning. Certainly the addition of rookie QB Davis Webb has given people the impression the Giants are thinking of a few years down the line. Short term, the Giants added WR Brandon Marshall and rookie TE Evan Engram, both weapons which will help Manning immensely. Early drafts seem undecided on Manning's real value, and his ADP is at 108 overall -- the No. 16 quarterback coming off the board.

  Raiders | Derek Carr fully guaranteed $40 million    Thu Jun 22, 11:53 AM

Updating earlier reports, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is fully guaranteed $40 million and has more than $70 million in total guarantees. He's under contract through 2022.

Footballguys view: Well, we all know the chances of reaching that 2022 finish line are scant, as teams and players tend to renegotiate before the end of a contract. Hence the large amount of guaranteed dollars. Carr continues to improve his game and if he is back 100% healthy as we expect, you can bet he'll be a great option for Fantasy GMs this season.

  Raiders | Derek Carr agrees to extension    Thu Jun 22, 10:22 AM

Updating an earlier report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr agreed to a five-year, $125 million extension Thursday, June 22, according to sources. The deal makes him the highest-paid player in team history.

Footballguys view: Well, they say if you like it then you'd better put a ring on it. This is the NFL equivalent and is a no-brainer for Oakland-soon-to-be-Las Vegas. Groan-inducing Dad-Jokes aside, Carr is the best player this team has had in a long time and a clear difference-maker. He will be that for your fantasy team too, and is currently going as the No. 8 quarterback off the board with an overall ADP of 72 in early drafting. With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree to throw to and Marshawn Lynch running the ball, this could be a very potent offense again this year.

  Raiders | Derek Carr deal near completion    Thu Jun 22, 08:29 AM

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has a deal in place with the Raiders, and only language remains. It could be finalized this week. Carr could choose to backload the deal because there is no state tax in Nevada and California's tax rate is 13.3 percent. Doing so would save him millions.

Footballguys view: This makes all the sense in the world and is a sane, smart move by the franchise. The backloading of the deal is fascinating for those of you who like finance, but the bottom line is this: Carr is one of the top young quarterbacks in the NFL, and you don't let a guy like that leave.

  Seahawks | Austin Davis contract update    Wed Jun 21, 07:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Austin Davis signed a one-year deal worth $855,000. The deal includes a $50,000 signing bonus, and Davis would receive a $30,000 bonus if he is on the roster at the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Davis is competing for the primary backup spot behind Russell Wilson. He's got to beat out Trevone Boykin for that job.

  Raiders | Derek Carr close to extension    Wed Jun 21, 03:01 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is close to agreeing on a contract extension that is expected to pay him around $25 million per season, according to sources. The deal could be announced as early as the end of this week.

Footballguys view: Carr is entering the final year of his contract, and the Raiders should get something done to lock him up before the start of training camp. That's been the expectation, and that's the track the two sides seem to be on. The top number for QBs is Andrew Luck ($24.6 million) and Carr should top that. Once he does, expect the contracts for Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins to fall in line next.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles struggles with turnovers    Wed Jun 21, 02:35 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has committed 63 turnovers over the last three seasons, which is the most in the NFL. His 51 interceptions during that span ranks second among quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: In other news, water is wet. Bortles is known to get careless with the football and his turnover numbers have always been high. If he wants to play up to his potential then Bortles will have to cut down on the turnovers. We should see the Jaguars use more balanced attack (featuring rookie RB Leonard Fournette) to keep things simple for Bortles. With over 600 passing attempts last year, Bortles may have 100 fewer attempts in 2017.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford long-term deal coming?    Tue Jun 20, 12:28 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has one year left on the extension he signed in 2013, and Lions general manager Bob Quinn told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio over the weekend he's "confident" a deal will get done.

Footballguys view: Stafford is entering the final year of his contract, and the Lions should work diligently to get this deal done. He's in line to be one of the highest paid players at his position. Earlier reports have speculated the Lions are waiting for the Raiders to get Derek Carr a new deal before rewarding Stafford.

  Redskins | Odds strong Kirk Cousins re-signs?    Tue Jun 20, 12:10 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has 'become a leader and a fixture at a position of perpetual angst for (team owner Dan) Snyder,' according to CBS sports Jason La Confora, who believes there is now an 80 percent chance Cousins signs a long-term deal with the Redskins.

Footballguys view: Things change quickly around the NFL. Cousins didn't seem to be in the long-term plans for Washington after back-to-back franchise tags (2016, 2017). The team could get a new deal done that gives Cousins the security every player is looking for. If Cousins were to hit the open market, we'd expect a team like the 49ers to break the bank to get him.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer closing the gap    Tue Jun 20, 11:41 AM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer has narrowed the gap between him and QB Cody Kessler for the starting job. Kizer essentially split the first-team repetitions with Kessler during minicamp. The two are expected to battle for the starting job in training camp.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Notre Dame is picking things up quickly. The Browns don't do everything right, but we love how they've emphasized building from the offensive line out. That O-Line is going to make things better for the quarterback -- no matter who the starter is. Kizer is seen as the QB of the future, and he should get on the field as the starter even if he begins the 2017 season as a backup behind Kessler.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor impresses    Tue Jun 20, 10:14 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has impressed head coach Sean McDermott. 'I've really been impressed with the leadership,' McDermott said. '(He displayed) the intangible qualities that are inherent or must be inherent to that quarterback position. I've watched him develop in those areas and that's important as we look to move forward. There's leadership qualities at that quarterback position that are important to winning football games, and I think he's done a nice job in that area.'

Footballguys view: Taylor needed to grow into his role as a leader with the Bills and it sounds like that's what he did. He's a playmaking quarterback who throws a beautiful deep pass, but Taylor needs to play with better consistency and accuracy. Taylor is the Bills starter for the 2017 season, but there is some question as to whether or not he's a long-term answer for the franchise.

  Rams | Jared Goff understands the offense    Mon Jun 19, 03:01 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff said he has understood and grasped all of head coach Sean McVay's so far this offseason. Goff said he has learned the offense much quicker this year than he did his rookie season. McVay said he has implemented about 95% of his offense so far.

Footballguys view: Goff was pretty bad as a rookie last year, but this new offense should be more capable of getting the best out of the second-year pro. He's a work in progress as a passer, but Goff should be better this year. Goff is a QB3 for fantasy owners in redraft leagues and this new offense greatly benefits his dynasty potential.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater could be cleared this year    Mon Jun 19, 11:13 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) could receive clearance to return at some point this season, in the opinion of beat writer Matt Vensel. Bridgewater has surfaced in videos throwing 40-yard passes.

Footballguys view: That's cool, and we're rooting for Bridgewater to get back onto the field someday. However, he may not be ready for the start of the regular season and when he comes back it should only be as a the backup to Sam Bradford. With no fifth-year option picked up, it will be interesting to see where Bridgewater is playing in 2018.

  Redskins | Nate Sudfeld impresses    Mon Jun 19, 11:04 AM

Washington Redskins QB Nate Sudfeld impressed senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams in practice Tuesday, June 13. Williams said that the way Sudfeld practiced, he would have been a first- or second-round pick.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld is a tall, strong-armed developmental passer we're intrigued by. A sixth-round pick out of Indiana in 2016, Sudfeld looks like your prototypical pocket passer. At 6'6" 230 pounds, Sudfeld stands tall behind the line of scrimmage and can throw with proper velocity and anticipation. He's not yet found consistency to his game, so just keep him in mind if you play in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Dolphins | Julius Thomas struggling    Sun Jun 18, 11:23 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas has been a non-factor in practices and appears to have chemistry issues with QB Ryan Tannehill, according to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel.

Footballguys view: They've got time to work things out, so don't panic with this story. Keep a mental note of it, but watch to see if Thomas shows better chemistry during training camp. The offense is familiar to him as he played under head coach Adam Gase during their time together in Denver. Thomas is a TE2 with upside for fantasy owners.

  Jets | Josh McCown losing grip on starting gig?    Sun Jun 18, 08:13 PM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg made some strides during minicamp, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, and Costello believes Hackenberg could beat out QB Josh McCown to be the Week 1 starter.

Footballguys view: Sounds like Hackenberg is hitting fewer reporters on the sidelines during Jets mandatory minicamp. The Jets are tanking and the best way to get into a top pick in next year's draft is to start Hackenberg. Sam Darnold (USC) or Josh Allen (Wyoming) should get used to the idea of playing for the Jets.

  Lions | Detroit working on Matthew Stafford deal    Sun Jun 18, 07:19 PM

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn said the team is working on an extension for QB Matthew Stafford and hopes to have news on the situation later in the summer.

Footballguys view: Stafford is set to hit the open market in 2018, but we don't see that happening. Earlier reports have indicated that Stafford is in no hurry, and his camp may wait until Derek Carr (Raiders) gets his new deal before signing. When all is said and done, expect Stafford to be one of the highest paid players at his position.

  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.

  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.

  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.

  Colts | Chester Rogers more polished    Fri Jun 16, 11:53 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers is running sharper routes this year, according to QB Andrew Luck, and Mike Wells of ESPN.com believes Rogers has put himself in the mix for the No. 3 receiver job.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Grambling State in 2016, Rogers played 380 snaps as a rookie and hauled in 19 passes for 273 yards. He's competing for the no3 WR spot with the Colts behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Veteran Kamar Aiken has to be considered the favorite right now, but we think Rogers has intriguing dynasty potential.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater looks sharp    Fri Jun 16, 11:34 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is looking better throwing the ball, according to head coach Mike Zimmer, and WR Laquon Treadwell said he has been impressed with the timing of Bridgewater's throws.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Bridgewater has a chip on his shoulder and wants to prove that he can come back from the horrific leg injury he suffered last year. Sam Bradford is the team's starter, but it looks like Bridgewater could be available in 2017 as his backup.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith already locked in    Fri Jun 16, 11:01 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has 'started back faster' in OTAs than ever before, according to assistant head coach Brad Childress.

Footballguys view: That's a great sign for Smith as he has 2017 first-round pick Patrick Mahomes behind him on the depth chart. This is likely his last season with the Chiefs as Mahomes is groomed to be the quarterback of the future. In fact, we won't be shocked if Mahomes sees a bit of time on the field this year.

Washington Redskins vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said the team wants to sign QB Kirk Cousins to a long-term extension in the worst way. Williams said the two sides have been negotiating this offseason.

  Texans | Tom Savage still in lead for QB job    Fri Jun 16, 04:24 PM

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is still considered the leading candidate for the starting No. 1 quarterback but will have to earn the job during training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Savage has the experience advantage over rookie DeShaun Watson. He's a tall, strong-armed pocket passer with say-it-don't-spray-it accuracy. Watson is simply the more exciting prospect here. He plays big in the biggest moments and is tough as nails. Watson is athletic, unafraid to challenge defenses and has quality weapons around him in the passing attack. Watson could win the starting job if he outperforms Savage in training camp and the preseason.

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg performed a 'little better than expected' in minicamp, and QB Josh McCown does not have an 'insurmountable lead' over him in the race to start Week 1. QB Bryce Petty is running third on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: There's nowhere to go but up for Hackenberg. Earlier camp reports indicate he's been terrible but now perhaps a little better than terrible. It doesn't matter for fantasy owners as we anticipate little production from the Jets passing game no matter who is the quarterback.

  Patriots | Tom Brady's arm strength still there    Fri Jun 16, 10:16 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has showcased the same arm strength he has for most of his career in offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Brady doesn't have a rocket arm, but he can make throws on time and accurately. In 2016, 11.1 percent of Brady's targets came at 20 yards or more. That mark ranked 13th in the league last year. With WR Brandin Cooks added via trade, we might see Brady take a few more deep shots in 2017.

  49ers | George Kittle standing out    Thu Jun 15, 09:34 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle received the most first-team reps of any rookie during OTAs and has 'really good football awareness,' according to quarterback Brian Hoyer.

Footballguys view: Coming out of Iowa, Kittle reminded many in the scouting community of Charles Clay (Bills). Like Clay, Kittle is an H-back type who can be relied on for yards after the catch. Kittle is currently fourth on the depth chart but keep an eye on his progress in camp if you play in dynasty leagues.

Footballguys view: Beathard should work well in the Kyle Shahanah offense. The rookie from Iowa has a good arm and throws a pretty deep pass. He needs to improve on short passing accuracy if he wants to develop as a pro.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said that the team is 'sick and tired of being below average' and 'not being successful when we feel as though we have the ability to be a good team.' He added: 'We haven't been. It's time to make a change. It's not going to happen overnight. You have to go do something about it.'

Footballguys view: We feel you, Blake. We feel you. Bortles is kind of getting to the end of his chances and we are hoping a new coach represents a fresh start and an improvement for the fourth year quarterback. The Jaguars did pick up his fifth year option, but he still needs to get better to secure a long term job. There are enough weapons in the offense to think he can do that, but fantasy GMs are cool on him right now, as he is the 20th quarterback coming off the board in early drafts.

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones could be on the roster bubble because he was fourth in the quarterback rotation during practice Wednesday, June 14, behind QBs Tyrod Taylor, T.J. Yates and Nathan Peterman.

Footballguys view: Jones has a big arm but little control as a passer. He'll need to show consistent accuracy during training camp and the preseason if he wants to stay with the Bills.

He's competing with 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch for the starting job in Denver. This Mike McCoy offense is full of completions, and the winner of the job could have low-end QB2 value for fantasy owners.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was the third quarterback in the rotation during drills Tuesday, June 13, but worked with the first-team offense during his snaps. Kizer has displayed excellent physical skills and is picking up the offense quickly.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation. Kizer, the rookie from Notre Dame, is considered a potential quarterback of the future...but the future may be now with Cleveland. They don't have much in front of him on the depth chart in either Cody Kessler or Brock Osweiler. It wouldn't be a total shock to see Kizer start at some point this year.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are looking ahead...and they should see Luck eased into action. When training camp rolls around, Luck should be out there and the team should ramp up his participation as we go through August. At this point, it seems like Luck is going to be ready for Week 1.

San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard signed his four-year rookie deal Tuesday, June 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Beathard is with a QB guru in new head coach Kyle Shanahan. The rookie from Iowa has a beautiful deep pass (think Jeff Blake) and is not afraid to push the ball downfield. He needs to work on timing, pass placement and intermediate accuracy if he wants to be considered more than a developmental quarterback for the 49ers.

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (leg) was limited to the exercise bike Tuesday, June 13, due to a minor leg injury.

It will be interesting to see if they can keep him around if Brady sticks around past this year, which is quite likely given his health and desire to play well into his 40s.

Footballguys view: Luck had right shoulder surgery in January 2017 to repair an injury (partially torn labrum) that dated back to the 2015 season. There was no initial timetable for his return, but it's not really a surprise the team is going to hold him out until training camp.

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly (wrist) still has a cast on his injured wrist but expects it to be removed later this week. Kelly is expected to be cleared to practice in August.

Footballguys view: Kelly is going to be the no3 QB behind Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian. Even if he's cleared to practice in August, the team might ease him back into action. He's still less than a year removed from a major knee injury, and the Ole Miss gunslinger is seen more as a long-term project for the Broncos.
