  Patriots | Tom Brady absent    Mon May 21, 08:46 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady won't report to organized team activities Monday, May 21, but he's expected to report to mandatory camp in June.

  Colts | Ryan Grant expected to start at WR?    Sun May 20, 04:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant is the favorite over Chester Rogers to start opposite T.Y. Hilton, based on the one-year, $5 million contract Grant signed in free agency, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: That would make sense, but the competition is open and we won't see until training camp how things shake out. Grant is perhaps better suited to play outside, while Rogers may be best suited to play in the slot. With Andrew Luck back in action, the Colts passing game should have more life in 2018.

  Steelers | Vance McDonald expected to start    Sun May 20, 04:17 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald reportedly 'made a huge impression down the stretch' and is considered the favorite to start over Jesse James, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: James is more of the all-purpose tight end, while McDonald is more of the receiving option. McDonald needs to stay healthy and prove that he can be more than a flash in the pan for the Steelers. Fantasy owners who want a TE2 with upside should consider McDonald late. McDonald is currently going undrafted in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Jay Ajayi played limited role in postseason    Sun May 20, 03:50 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi played fewer than half the team's snaps in the playoffs, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: Without LeGarrette Blount, the Eagles are looking for more opportunities in the backfield. That means Ajayi is up next, but the Eagles have a cramped backfield. We'll likely see him as the main ball-carrier, but we could see someone like Darren Sproles as their primary receiving back.

  Cowboys | Rico Gathers could start?    Sun May 20, 03:42 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Rico Gathers is a candidate to step up as the team's starting tight end, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have a collection of TEs on the roster right now, and Gathers is at the top of the list. He'll compete with guys like Blake Jarwin and rookie Dalton Schultz.

  Vikings | Minnesota hoping to extend three key players    Sun May 20, 03:09 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs, DE Danielle Hunter and LB Anthony Barr are the three players the team is hoping to sign to lucrative deals this offseason, according to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Footballguys view: Diggs is in the final year of his rookie contract and is set to make a little over $700,000 in 2018. The Vikings spent a ton of money to get QB Kirk Cousins, but they should be able to find a way to get Diggs a contract.

  Saints | Deon Yelder deal includes guaranteed money    Sun May 20, 11:36 AM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Deon Yelder's contract includes $90,000 in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Some out there think the Saints got a steal in adding Yelder as a priority free agent after the 2018 NFL draft. He was a prep basketball star and has only one year of production at Western Kentucky. Like most basketball converts, Yelder knows how to use his body to shield defenders away from the ball and he can play 'above the rim' on passes tossed up high. Also, like most inexperienced basketball converts, Yelder's route running leaves a lot to be desired. We'll be monitoring him in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Eagles | Donnel Pumphrey faces uphill climb    Sat May 19, 10:23 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) missed the 2017 season with a torn hamstring and will be fighting for a roster spot this summer. NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks believes it is silly to write off Pumphrey after just 26 preseason carries, because the 2017 rookie looked dynamic at times in practice and bulked up, per reports. Even still, Pumphrey faces an uphill battle to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: The FBS all-time leading rusher is only 179 pounds. Even if he's gained weight, Pumphrey simply lacks the body armor to hold up to the NFL beating. That being said, if he works as a part-time player then there's enough ability to be worth consideration. The Eagles are stacked at the running back position and that certainly hurts Pumphrey's chances of making the team. He can play slot receiver, so perhaps that extra bit of versatility will keep the 2017 fourth-round pick on the roster.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles to have a large role?    Sat May 19, 10:13 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) will have a big role in the offense, despite being 34 years old and coming off of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, in the opinion of Eliot Shorr-Parks, of NJ.com. Sproles was not signed to be a feel-good story, according to Shorr-Parks, and it would not be a surprising to see the veteran near or even atop the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind late in your fantasy drafts. Sproles is quite capable as a receiver and could get 50-plus catches if healthy and things line up for him to have this large role in 2018. Jay Ajayi should be the team's leading ball-carrier, but Sproles can be featured as a runner in space and receiver out of the backfield.

  Dolphins | Miami to get trio back on field for OTAs    Sat May 19, 10:05 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee), LB Raekwon McMillan (knee) and CB Tony Lippett (Achilles') are all expected to be on the field in some capacity next week, although it is still uncertain how much work all three will actually do, according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

Footballguys view: Tannehill is the one fantasy owners (and the Dolphins) will be monitoring closely during camp. He missed all of last year with this knee injury, prompting the Dolphins to go out and sign Jay Cutler. Now, Tannehill is back for one more (and final?) season as the starter. With Brock Osweiler, Bryce Petty and David Fales behind him the Dolphins don't have many choices other than to see if Tannehill can not only regain his form but show that he's got more potential than he's shown as a pro.

  Cowboys | Terrance Williams arrested    Sat May 19, 03:45 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams was arrested in Dallas Saturday, May 19, on suspicion of public intoxication. He could also be charged with fleeing the scene of an accident and striking a structure or highway landscaping depending on his involvement in a one-car accident of his Lamborghini.

Footballguys view: This sounds like it could have been much worse, and Williams should consider himself lucky that he was able to walk away. Without Dez Bryant, the Cowboys need Williams to have a bounce back year. Last year, Williams only went over 100 yards receiving in a game once and didn't have a receiving touchdown. He needs to get healthy (currently recovering from offseason foot surgery), stay out of trouble and show that he can produce at a higher level in 2018.

  Saints | Nate Wozniak switching positions    Sat May 19, 03:45 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Nate Wozniak will be used as an offensive tackle with the Saints even though he has only played tight end during his football career. He weighed 283 pounds during the rookie minicamp and has a target goal of around 300 pounds.

Footballguys view: Wozniak isn't much of a receiver, but he's listed at 6'9" 283 pounds. That's a good start if he wants to play tackle in the NFL. It's a transition we've seen before as years ago Jason Peters went from playing tight end in college to being one of the best offensive tackles in the game. Wozniak obviously has his work cut out for him, and is highly unlikely to turn out the way Peters did in the NFL.

  Bears | Three Bears may be camp PUP candidates    Sat May 19, 03:14 PM

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee), LB Leonard Floyd (knee) and OG Kyle Long (elbow, neck, shoulder) could all start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, in the opinion of The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Footballguys view: Robinson is the player fantasy owners are monitoring closely here. All reports about Robinson's recovery have been positive and Bears coach Matt Nagy said Robinson is "ahead of the game" in his rehab.

  NFL | Johnny Manziel headed to Canada    Sat May 19, 12:11 PM

Free-agent QB Johnny Manziel (Browns) has announced that he will be signing with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. He is scheduled to receive a two-year contract, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Manziel's comeback tour now head up North, and it will be interesting to see what kind of play he can provide up in Canada. A first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, Manziel failed to make it in the NFL due to off-field issues. He seems to have his life back on track but won't get a ticket back to the NFL just yet. If he performs well for the Tiger-Cats (and stays out of trouble) then perhaps there will be a team that takes a chance on Manziel in the NFL once again.

  Falcons | Julio Jones wants contract update    Fri May 18, 10:22 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is not expected to participate in organized team activities in part because he wants the team to update his contract.

Footballguys view: We should see the Falcons move to get something done with the superstar receiver. He's got three years left on his deal and doesn't hit free agency until 2021. Jones has been in regular contact with head coach Dan Quinn and the team is open to updating Jones' contract. Jones is scheduled to make $10.5 million in 2018.

  Broncos | Jordan Taylor to miss OTAs    Fri May 18, 08:43 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Taylor (hip) will not participate in the organized team activities next week because he is still recovering from hip surgeries.

Footballguys view: Taylor is on the roster bubble for the Broncos after they added another duo of WRs in the draft (the second year in a row they've drafted two WRs in the same class). Courtland Sutton (SMU) should be the heir apparent to Demaryius Thomas while DaeSean Hamilton (Penn State) could work as the slot WR in 2018 and eventually replace Emmanuel Sanders (2019?). Add in last year's duo in the draft (Carlos Henderson, Isaiah McKenzie) and you see how things are cramped at the WR spot in Denver.

  Broncos | Jeff Heuerman to work with starters    Fri May 18, 07:16 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman will line up with the first-team offense during organized team activities next week.

Footballguys view: The Broncos only targeted their tight ends 71 times last year, and that's out of 546 pass attempts overall and only 11 times in the red zone. That's not a ton of opportunities for the position. So we are not excited at this point.

  Jets | Thomas Rawls not guaranteed spot    Fri May 18, 06:43 PM

  Falcons | Julio Jones not expected at workouts    Fri May 18, 04:48 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is not expected to report for organized team activities next week, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jones not attending could actually be good for the Falcons. Hear us out. This will give Matt Ryan more time with rookie Calvin Ridley, which can only pay off when the regular season starts. They'll have some extra time to build chemistry.

  Giants | Odell Beckham expected for voluntary OTAs    Fri May 18, 12:31 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) will likely be present for the start of the offseason conditioning program on May 21 despite the fact he and the team have yet to come to terms on a contract extension, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Footballguys view: This is to the benefit of everyone. This offense has not been together since the beginning of last season. they need time to get in sync. We expect backup to have a pretty good bounce-back year coming off of an injury. A new offensive line will helpfully give Eli Manning time to move the ball and get it to his best receiver.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah unlikely to contribute much    Fri May 18, 12:24 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount are expected to receive much of the early-down work with Theo Riddick playing a third-down role, potentially leaving Ameer Abdullah potentially as a game-day inactive or on the roster bubble, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.

Footballguys view: And what a mess this seems to be. This looks like a full-blown committee, which could limit every single back's value. We'll have to watch how this shakes out, but it looks grim for fantasy owners.

  Jets | Jordan Leggett the favorite to start?    Fri May 18, 12:07 PM

New York Jets LB Jordan Leggett missed his entire rookie season last year due to a knee injury but may have a slight edge over rookie Chris Herndon for the starting tight end job, according to Darryl Slater of NJ.com.

Footballguys view: It doesn't matter a whole heck of a lot, as we don't expect much from other the offense in general, or tight end specifically. The Jets have been a fantasy Wasteland at tight end for a long time. It's not changing now.

  Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson to emerge in 2018?    Thu May 17, 10:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson's rapport with QB Patrick Mahomes and the presence of WR Tyreek Hill and WR Sammy Watkins on the outside should allow him to exploit defenses underneath this season, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: It's hard to say exactly how much faith to put in second-year quarterback Mahomes. This sounds promising, but let's see this against actual defenders before we get too excited. That said it's worth noting even this early on, especially for those of you who own Mahomes in Dynasty leagues.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson in line for big role?    Thu May 17, 10:44 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will likely be the starter according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, but Rosenthal said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if RB Chris Thompson ended up playing more snaps this year.

Footballguys view: Thompson catches the ball well, and is a much better pass protector. So with the, not-terribly-mobile-but-not-a-statue Alex Smith under center, Washington may decide Thompson is the better bet to protect their quarterback. Guice should get plenty of carries, but Thompson may be a sneaky player to target in this offense.

  Giants | Roger Lewis the No. 3 receiver?    Thu May 17, 10:37 PM

New York Giants WR Roger Lewis could emerge as the No. 3 receiver this year ahead of WR Cody Latimer, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

  Dolphins | Danny Amendola making an impact    Thu May 17, 10:15 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Danny Amendola's work ethic has been impressing the coaching staff and rubbing off on the locker room, according to head coach Adam Gase.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims will have specific role    Thu May 17, 05:49 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is expected to be a third-down back this upcoming season because of his ability to pass protect and catch the ball out of the backfield, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

Footballguys view: Sims had his shot to be the team's lead back in 2015 and those days are gone. Now, rookie Ronald Jones could emerge as the top running back for the Bucs. Jones is electric with the ball in his hands and can be dangerous as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. Sims is not as explosive with the ball but he is reliable and there's a spot for that....a spot with limited (little?) fantasy value but there is a spot.

  Buccaneers | Thomas Sperbeck joins Bucs    Thu May 17, 04:25 PM

Free-agent WR Thomas Sperbeck (Buccaneers) signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, May 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Sperbeck was picked up by the Bucs as an undrafted free agent in 2017 out of Boise State. He is the all-time leader in receiving yards in Boise State history. Sperbeck has natural hands, and can work the slot at 5'11" 180 pounds with plenty of quickness and speed.

  Cowboys | Dallas works out several players    Thu May 17, 04:18 PM

Free-agent QB Trevor Knight (Falcons), WR Keyarris Garrett (Panthers) and WR Taj Williams (Seahawks) and undrafted free-agent RB Sherman Badie (Tulane) worked out for the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, May 17. The Cowboys are not expected to sign any of the players at this time.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Texas A&M (Oklahoma transfer) in 2017, Knight bounced around on two teams (Cardinals, Falcons) last year. Knight is athletic and strong enough to break some tackles as a runner, but his accuracy as a passer is a work in progress. We'll see if he can latch on with another team since the Cowboys seem to be passing on him at this time.

  Steelers | Eli Rogers likely will return    Thu May 17, 03:31 PM

Free-agent WR Eli Rogers (knee) likely will re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers once he recovers from his torn anterior cruciate ligament, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: That move could make a lot of sense for both sides. With Martavis Bryant (Raiders) traded away, the Steelers could use another body in the mix behind Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster. After snaring 48 catches out of the slot in 2016, Rogers wasn't used much in 2017 and only caught 18 passes. Rogers tore his ACL in the Divisional Round against the Jaguars. He may not be fully ready to go until well into the 2018 regular season.

  NFL | Matt Moore may wait to sign    Thu May 17, 03:20 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) may wait until the 2018 regular season starts before signing with a team in order to see which teams will need quarterback help, according to sources.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin dubbed starter    Thu May 17, 01:04 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin has earned the opportunity to begin the regular season as a starter, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

  Bengals | John Ross wants to think less, relax    Thu May 17, 12:42 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross said he was thinking about everything he was doing in his rookie season and it took away from his talent. Ross said the coaching staff told him he performs better when he's himself and relaxes. A shoulder injury also got the best of Ross, who said he was trying to do more than he could because of it. 'You have to come in and prepare. I've learned that. It's growth and progression from here on [out].'

Footballguys view: Ross went from shattering the 40-yard dash record at the Scouting Combine in 2017, to struggling through a rookie season where he couldn't get healthy, barely played and came away with zero catches. The best athletes in the world can perform at a high level with a calm mind, and we'll see if Ross can find some inner peace on the football field in 2018.

  Broncos | Denver signs Nick Stevens    Thu May 17, 12:13 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Nick Stevens (Colorado State) signed an undisclosed deal with the Denver Broncos Thursday, May 17.

Footballguys view: After the draft, GM John Elway said the team would not add another quarterback and Chad Kelly would compete with Paxton Lynch for the backup job to starter Case Keenum. Something changed, and that may be just understanding the need for a camp arm. Stevens is a smart player, but he's limited physically and needs a lot of work on his pass placement. He'll be the fourth-string quarterback for the Broncos and is just trying to earn a spot on the practice squad.

  Cardinals | David Johnson with lofty goals    Thu May 17, 10:54 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) said his wrist feels great, and he's aiming for 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.

Footballguys view: Only two backs in NFL history (Roger Craig, Marshall Faulk) are members of the 1,000/1,000-club. Johnson certainly could be the next in line. With Mike McCoy running the Cardinals offense in 2018, we should see Johnson get plenty of work as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. With Sam Bradford (or rookie Josh Rosen) starting at quarterback, Johnson makes for a great relief-valve target. Fantasy owners can trust him as one of the top picks off the board in any draft/any format.

He's a player that for me, you get giddy about,' Nagy said.

  NFL | Crockett Gillmore undergoes surgery    Wed May 16, 09:52 PM

Free-agent TE/OL Crockett Gillmore (knee) needed to undergo another surgery on his knee earlier this offseason, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Gillmore struggled at the tight end position, and he's struggled to stay healthy as a pro. He's moving to offensive tackle according to reports that came out earlier this year. The Baltimore Ravens may have interest in re-signing Gillmore, but he would need to be able to pass a physical.
