  Redskins | Robert Davis likely to begin on PUP    Tue Jun 18, 02:08 AM

Washington Redskins WR Robert Davis (knee, leg) is likely to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list rather than be ready for the start of training camp.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald works in offseason program    Tue Jun 18, 01:47 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has shown up to almost every voluntary workout so far during his 16th NFL offseason. 'I am hoping he enjoys the process and enjoys what the offense turns into and gives him a reason to stick around a few more years,' head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. 'But he practices and he plays like he's trying to make the team, and that's the biggest compliment I can give him. He doesn't need it, and you'd think he's starving out there. It's impressive to watch.'

  Saints | New Orleans talking with Michael Thomas    Mon Jun 17, 06:17 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has had some contract extension talks with the Saints, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.

Footballguys view: Thomas is in the final year of his rookie contract and is on the books for only $1.6 million in 2019. We'll see if the Saints can find a way to get him a new deal before he hits the open market (or more precisely is franchise tagged) in 2020. Thomas is likely to be the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL when a new contract is agreed upon.

  Jets | Robby Anderson impresses    Mon Jun 17, 11:46 AM

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson was deemed a 'very pleasant surprise' by new general manager Joe Douglas. 'He's a tough weapon for defenses to match up with, he can get behind you and he can challenge the defense vertically,' Douglas said. 'That was a very pleasant surprise.'

Footballguys view: Over the last month of the 2018 season, Anderson performed at a high level. We'll see if he can carry that over to this season. New head coach Adam Gase should have plenty of ways to use Anderson as a favorite target of second-year QB Sam Darnold. Anderson has a current ADP of WR30 (6.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Parris Campbell in mix for No. 3 job    Mon Jun 17, 02:26 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell missed some time in the spring, but he still should be in the mix for the No. 3 receiver job.

Footballguys view: We love Campbell's playmaking ability on the football field. He is a big play waiting to happen and can take short passes and turn them into long gains because of his speed and quickness. Campbell can toy with defenders after the catch and has goof field vision to find running lanes. He should serve as the No. 3 receiver with T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess ahead of him on the depth chart.

  Colts | Devin Funchess struggled in OTAs    Mon Jun 17, 01:48 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess struggled to establish a consistent rapport with QB Jacoby Brissett during organized team activities (OTAs), as starting QB Andrew Luck was held out. Head coach Frank Reich still praised the aptitude and route running of Funchess.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation as training camp and preseason roll on later this summer. It's not a good sign that Funchess was struggling in OTAs. The Colts took a flier on Funchess after he had a down season in Carolina. They signed him to a one-year deal earlier this offseason. He gives the Colts much-needed size at the wide receiver position, and Funchess gets an upgrade at quarterback with Andrew Luck. We'll see if he can clean things up in training camp.

  Lions | Chris Lacy pushing for a spot    Sun Jun 16, 11:55 PM

Detroit Lions WR Chris Lacy brings a combination of size and speed to the Detroit receiving corps and could make the 53-man roster as a 'depth receiver,' according to Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Lacy came into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State and originally signed with the Patriots. He was sparingly used in college and has to refine his pass-catching skills, but Lacy does have a nice size/speed combination. We'll monitor his progress in super deep dynasty formats.

  Eagles | Marken Michel making noise    Sun Jun 16, 11:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Marken Michel has spent some time with the first-team offense during spring practices and has shown the ability to stretch the field, according to Tim McManus of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Michel is the older brother of Patriots second-year running back Sony Michel, and he's got quite an athletic profile. The Eagles were able to sign Michel after he spent two seasons in the CFL with the Calgary Stampeders. During his college career at UMASS, Michel worked primarily as a wide receiver but did also play some running back and on special teams. Undrafted out of UMASS in 2016, Michel signed with the Vikings but did not make the 53-man roster as a rookie. We'll keep an eye on him in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Eagles | JJ Arcega-Whiteside the No. 4 option?    Sun Jun 16, 08:55 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside is the clear No. 4 receiver, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com, and Rosenblatt believes Arcega-Whiteside has 'potentially elite' ability in the red zone.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Stanford should be in line for that No. 4 job with the Eagles behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor. His 'my ball mentalilty' helps Arcega-Whiteside bring down contested passes regularly...making him a great option when space is tight near pay dirt. We'll monitor him closely in dynasty formats and likely throw him in as a cheap boom/bust DFS play from time to time in 2019.

  49ers | Dante Pettis turning heads    Sun Jun 16, 08:37 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis has impressed QB Jimmy Garoppolo and head Kyle Shanahan with his new physique and attention to detail. 'Dante's body is maturing,' Garoppolo said. 'He's coming out of breaks with power, he has speed.''He worked while he was away,' Shanahan said. 'He tried to get bigger. He worked more at his routes and he came here with the idea of 'Hey, I'm not just coming here to get better back in shape, I'm coming here to get better.''

Footballguys view: Pettis is a dynamic player who can create space with his quickness, route-running and run-after-the-catch ability. While not a speedster, Pettis plays with plenty of guile and can be one of Garoppolo's favorite targets in 2019. If Pettis caught 50-plus catches this season we would not be surprised. Pettis has a current ADP of WR34 (8.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | DeSean Jackson embracing leadership role    Sun Jun 16, 03:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been embracing his role as a veteran and leader this offseason, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com. The 32-year-old was present for all but one session of voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) practices. 'He's done everything we've asked him to do,' receivers coach Carson Walch said. 'He's been great in the meeting room. Some of our young guys sometimes are in awe seeing DeSean Jackson in our building.'

Footballguys view: Jackson was a fantasy WR1 with Ryan Fitzpatrick last year, but it seems the fantasy community is still underestimating him. He has reportedly already developed excellent chemistry with Wentz and should be drafted a lot earlier than he is lasting right now.

  Chargers | Mike Williams foresees expanded role    Sun Jun 16, 12:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams says he is preparing to take on an expanded role in 2019. 'We lost a big weapon in Tyrell (Williams), (so) a lot of people in the room have to step up,' Williams said Friday, June 14, on the the final day of the team's minicamp. 'I feel like me being the player that I am, I feel like I can do that... I feel like the role is going to change. I feel I'm going to get a lot more opportunities than I did last year. A lot more balls coming my way. I'm looking forward to it.'

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk a quick study    Sun Jun 16, 01:10 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk is displaying a 'good feel' for the offense under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Footballguys view: Kirk has the highest ceiling of any receiver in what should be an explosive Cardinals offense. He has a chance to catch 100+ passes and become Kyler Murray's favorite in short order. Kirk should be on your short list of mid-round wide receiver targets.

  Bengals | Cody Core back on the field    Sat Jun 15, 09:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core (elbow) has been able to participate in minicamp.

Footballguys view: Core will be battling with Auden Tate, Josh Malone and UDFA Stanley Morgan for a roster spot that could be only a John Ross injury away from playing time. He has mainly been a special teams contributor since being selected in the sixth round in 2016.

  49ers | Richie James losing ground    Fri Jun 14, 09:57 PM

San Francisco WR Richie James has fallen behind WR Trent Taylor for the starting slot receiver job during spring practices, in the opinion of Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Taylor has had some injury problems during his pro career, and that's kept him from playing a full 16-game season in two years with the 49ers. Now that he's healthy, Taylor seems to be learning from 49ers wide receiver coach Wes Welker. We should see this battle continue into the preseason.

  49ers | Trent Taylor has found a mentor    Fri Jun 14, 09:49 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor said he has learned a lot by working with wide receivers coach Wes Welker this offseason.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Taylor can take what he learns from Welker and apply it to the field. The 49ers will use him as their slot receiver once again in 2019. Taylor needs to stay healthy and establish a strong connection with returning QB Jimmy Garoppolo. He's got some dynasty value in deep leagues but Taylor is not getting drafted right now in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk picking up offense    Fri Jun 14, 09:33 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk has shown a 'good feel' for the offense, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Footballguys view: Kirk should be able to thrive in the 'Air Raid' offense that Kingsbury is bringing to Arizona. The shorter passes can turn into long gains with Kirk's quickness and speed. His current ADP is WR35 (8.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel ready for next step?    Fri Jun 14, 09:25 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel has been the 'MVP' of minicamp, according to Brendan Marks of the Charlotte Observer. 'His catch radius I think has improved,' head coach Ron Rivera said. 'I just think his overall game has improved.'

Footballguys view: Pay attention to this type of drumbeat in the offseason. Samuel is a dangerous player who can make big plays with his speed and quickness after the catch. If the Panthers truly tap into his potential, then Samuel is a player Fantasy GMs are going to clamor for. He had only 47 touches in all of 2018, but he scored 7 touchdowns (5 receiving, 2 rushing), giving him a touchdown in every 6 touches. We're excited to see what he could do this year.

  Bengals | John Ross still struggling    Fri Jun 14, 09:14 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross has had issues with consistency during spring practices, according to Jay Morrison of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Ross may be having trouble picking up the new offense, at least those are some of the rumblings coming out of Bengals OTAs. He needs to stay healthy and produce in what is a make-or-break year for the former first-round pick. Ross has the speed to take the top of the defense, and his seven touchdowns in 2018 showcase how that's the case. He's a boom/bust end-of-the-bench player as the Bengals No. 3 wide receiver in 2019.

  Dolphins | DeVante Parker standing out this spring    Fri Jun 14, 02:30 PM

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker regularly looked like the team's best offensive player this spring, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.

Footballguys view: This has been an annual tradition now, so we'll excuse you if you aren't getting on the bandwagon. Parker is cheaper than previous years and Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't bad at creating fantasy value in his receivers, so we won't scoff at taking Parker at ADP to see what happens under a new regime that surprisingly chose to retain him.

  Cowboys | Randall Cobb likely to be big part of offense    Fri Jun 14, 02:27 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb has reportedly formed 'a fast connection' with QB Dak Prescott, and there is 'no question' Cobb will be a 'huge addition to the offense' in 2019.

Footballguys view: Cobb should push Allen Hurns to the bench. If he can stay at full speed, Cobb has a shot at fantasy relevance and should be on our early season waiver wire watch list, but Cobb has rarely stayed at full speed for long since signing his second contract with Green Bay.

  Browns | Jarvis Landry: Offense has lot to learn    Fri Jun 14, 12:25 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry says the team's new offense will take some time to gel under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who has received some help recently from head coach Freddie Kitchens. 'Freddie has done a great job of monitoring, stepping in when he needs to step in,' Landry said Friday, June 14. 'Todd continues to teach us the way -- every guy is different as far as learning so continues to try to teach us. We kinda go from there. It's a new offense. There's a lot to learn. There's a lot of moving parts. It takes some time, not everything goes smoothly.'

Footballguys view: Monken and Kitchens will aim high and that's a good thing for an offense with so much talent and ability with a bold young quarterback at the helm. This is still a place that could be a fantasy bonanza in short order despite the lukewarm vibes going into the layoff before camp.

  Vikings | Chad Beebe ascending    Fri Jun 14, 11:43 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Chad Beebe is a possible front runner for the No. 3 wide receiver spot.

Footballguys view: More than a bump for Beebe's budding deep dynasty value, this should cue you in that the run-happy Vikings will use a lot of two tight end sets this year. Kyle Rudolph extension sealed that, but the team also drafted a tight end (Irv Smith Jr.) in the second round and have useful bench tight ends in block-first David Morgan and catch-first Tyler Conklin.

  Chiefs | Byron Pringle impressing    Fri Jun 14, 11:42 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Byron Pringle has made plays this offseason and performed well in the preseason last year before suffering an injury.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs will have opportunity to make the team as a fifth receiver even if Tyreek Hill is there Week 1, and Hill's murky future could encourage them to keep a sixth. Sammy Watkins injury history could also be a path to playing time behind Demarcus Robinson and second round pick Mecole Hardman. We'll pay attention to any Chiefs receiver that has a chance to make the team.

  Jaguars | Chris Conley thriving    Fri Jun 14, 10:16 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Chris Conley has been the best receiver in the team's organized team activities and minicamp. He has grown a rapport with QB Nick Foles, and Conley could emerge as the team's top receiver.

Footballguys view: Foles recruited Conley so this isn't a shock. It isn't like the Jaguars have an entrenched #1 receiver. He's probably not worth a pick yet, but if this continues through camp and the preseason, Conley will land on our late round radar.

  Bills | Victor Bolden could make roster    Thu Jun 13, 11:52 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Victor Bolden has an edge in the battle to make the roster as the No. 6 receiver because of his ability to play on special teams, according to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News.

  Bills | Andre Roberts may have role in offense    Thu Jun 13, 11:50 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Andre Roberts may see work in the passing game as the No. 5 receiver in addition to playing on special teams, according to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News.

Footballguys view: Roberts was one of the most impactful return men in the league last year, so the Jets will miss him. He won't have fantasy relevance, but could add even more vertical speed to the Bills passing game in three and four wide sets.

  Saints | Cameron Meredith thinking big picture    Thu Jun 13, 10:28 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) said sitting out OTAs and minicamp is 'mostly a matter of being smart' in order to ensure a healthy training camp.

Footballguys view: Meredith's tenure with the Saints is hanging by a string after he took a paycut. Rishard Matthews was signed to give Meredith even more competition for a roster spot at a position that doesn't have any to spare.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison to man the slot?    Thu Jun 13, 09:55 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison is 'likely slated as the slot man' in three-receiver sets, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Allison was reasonably productive before getting hurt last year, but the role change isn't necessarily a positive as Davante Adams will get a solid share of his snaps in the slot and Allison will have to hold off Jake Kumerow and Equanimeous St. Brown for outside snaps when Adams moves inside. He's probably overdrafted right now.

  Packers | Marquez Valdes-Scantling the No. 2 option?    Thu Jun 13, 09:41 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been lining up across from WR Davante Adams in all packages during minicamp.

Footballguys view: Aaron Rodgers can support the fantasy value of a second wide receiver behind Davante Adams, but it's unclear who it will be. Valdes-Scantling and possible starter Geronimo Allison both got there for a stretch last year, and Jake Kumerow could also have something to say about the outcome here.

  Jets | Robby Anderson still sidelined    Thu Jun 13, 09:10 PM

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson (undisclosed) did not practice Thursday, June 13, because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: We'll be watching this as Anderson looked like a #1 in the making with Sam Darnold last year, but has to start over with a new coaching staff in a contract year. He could vastly outproduce his modest ADP.

  Seahawks | David Moore making huge leap    Thu Jun 13, 06:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR David Moore has made a huge leap this offseason in his knowledge of the position and in his ability to play multiple spots, according to head coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, June 13.

Footballguys view: This is why Moore has spent time with the first-team offense in three-receiver sets during spring practices. The Seahawks are going to be a run-first offense in 2019, but more consistent usage of Moore could lead to steady production. Let's see what he looks like in the preseason.

  Eagles | Chemistry between QB, DeSean Jackson on point    Thu Jun 13, 05:33 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has reportedly built a strong connection and sense of timing with QB Carson Wentz throughout the spring, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

Footballguys view: These type of reports have been a steady drumbeat this offseason. Jackson can still be a deep threat and we know Wentz has no problem trusting his receivers on field-flipping plays. He could easily outplay his current ADP of WR49 (11.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Saints | Rishard Matthews headed to New Orleans    Thu Jun 13, 04:31 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) signed an undisclosed contract with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, June 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Matthews is healthy now after a hamstring injury landed him on Injured Reserve last season. He's got a real chance at cracking the 53-man roster with the Saints. They've got a ton of question marks on the roster behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. We'll see if Matthews can do enough to impress in training camp.

  Bears | Anthony Miller likely on track for camp    Thu Jun 13, 03:19 PM

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) has made enough progress from offseason shoulder surgery to make head coach Matt Nagy optimistic about his chances of being ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Miller had shoulder surgery back in January, and he's always been on track for training camp. With no known setbacks, that seems to still be the case. Miller's seven touchdowns last year inflated his fantasy value. This season, several factors (and other players) stand in Miller's way of doing more. We like him as more of a WR5 with upside in a high-powered passing attack.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville adds two, subtracts two    Thu Jun 13, 03:06 PM

  Jaguars | Marqise Lee unlikely to start camp on time    Thu Jun 13, 02:36 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee is not expected to be ready for the start of training camp in late July, although the expectation is he will return at some point shortly thereafter, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Footballguys view: Lee missed all of last year due to a knee injury. We'll see if he can stay healthy and impress in a competition to become the favorite target of new QB Nick Foles.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson raves about D.K. Metcalf    Thu Jun 13, 02:04 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf has repeatedly impressed QB Russell Wilson throughout spring workouts.'It's great seeing DK make his plays. I think DK is looking really, really special. He can do anything and everything and he's tremendous. ... Everybody knows about (his) ability to run and jump and catch and all that. But I think more than anything else, it's his brain, how he processes information, how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent, he understands the game really well. He takes coaching well, he gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything everyone was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more,' Wilson said.

Footballguys view: Metcalf can at least be a jump-ball specialist for Seattle this year. That makes him a great option for Wilson in the red zone. Metcalf needs to stay healthy and he struggled with a few different injuries during his college career at Ole Miss. He also needs to become more nuanced as a route runner. Metcalf if big and fast but he struggles when throttling down to change direction. We're going to be monitoring him closely in training camp and the preseason.

  Cowboys | Noah Brown had knee surgery    Thu Jun 13, 12:47 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Noah Brown (knee) had knee surgery last week but is expected to be ready by the start of training camp, according to a report Thursday, June 13.

Footballguys view: We'll be monitoring Brown's progress but only in super deep dynasty formats. The 2017 seventh-round pick out of Ohio State has only nine catches for 87 yards in two seasons with the Cowboys.

  Ravens | Coach optimistic on Marquise Brown     Thu Jun 13, 12:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown (foot) hopefully will be ready for training camp as he recovers from foot surgery, head coach John Harbaugh said Thursday, June 13. Harbaugh added he's optimistic if Brown has no setbacks.

Footballguys view: The plan was always for Brown to be ready by training camp. The surgery Brown had was back in February, so he's on track with no known setbacks. Brown is a playmaker and should quickly become a favorite of QB Lamar Jackson.

  Colts | Kenny Moore signs extension    Thu Jun 13, 08:59 AM

  Packers | Jake Kumerow draws praise    Thu Jun 13, 02:14 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow caught two touchdowns during minicamp practice Tuesday, June 11, and earned a lot of praise from QB Aaron Rodgers, who talked about Kumerow's intelligence and consistency being in the right spots. Rodgers concluded by saying he was a 'big fan' of Kumerow.

Footballguys view: Message! There are three wide receivers in Green Bay that Fantasy GMs need to be all over. Davante Adams (of course), Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Kumerow. The last two weeks of the 2018 season, Kumerow flashed and we love adding him in dynasty formats. He has the speed to get deep and tracks the ball well, and we're interested to see if he can push for more playing time this season. Consider Kumerow a favorite deep sleeper for the 2019 season.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery participates in practice    Wed Jun 12, 11:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (wrist) was able to participate in practice Wednesday, June 12. He had been dealing with a wrist ailment.

Footballguys view: Jeffery is trending in the right direction here. If healthy, Jeffery is going to be a big part of the Eagles passing attack. Even though QB Carson Wentz spreads the ball around, the trust with Jeffery is there. If Jeffery is a touchdown hog in 2019, he could outperform his current ADP of WR29 (6.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Marquez Valdes-Scantling comfortable in offense    Wed Jun 12, 09:29 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling feels confident he'll flourish in the team's new offense. 'It's built for my kind of player. I'm a vertical guy, I can stretch the field,' Valdes-Scantling said.

Footballguys view: Another offseason drumbeat on Valdes-Scantling here. He's the WR to monitor behind Davante Adams. Even better, just scoop him up in your fantasy draft because the potential for him to be a top-25 fantasy WR is there. His current ADP shows plenty are sleeping on the second-year pro. Valdes-Scantling is going off the board at WR58 (13.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Tennessee Titans second-round draft choice WR A.J. Brown agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Titans Wednesday, June 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brown has a skill set that could work well in the NFL. He's balanced when running after the catch and is tough to bring down. Brown is more quick than fast, but he uses his quickness and strength to make plays. He will start opposite of Corey Davis this year for the Titans.

  Saints | Rishard Matthews trying out    Wed Jun 12, 06:43 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Jets) is participating in the New Orleans Saints minicamp this week on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Matthews had a bizarre 2018 season, playing eight games on the season with three coming for the Titans and five for the Jets. He had five catches for 24 yards during those contests in 2018. We'll see if his tryout with the Saints can earn him a chance on the 90-man roster for training camp.
