  Texans | Will Fuller leaves practice    Thu Aug 22, 06:04 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 22, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller is not hurt and that the team is managing his snaps during practice.

Footballguys view: Fuller is set up for a hot start with Keke Coutee banged up and more targets likely coming his way against the Saints in Week 1. He's worth his modest (considering his scoring history) ADP.

  Jaguars | Nick Foles on same page with WRs    Thu Aug 22, 04:53 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles has reportedly 'shown good chemistry' with WRs Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley and DJ Chark Jr. in practice, according to the team's website.

Footballguys view: Foles and company get the Chiefs Week 1, so it could be a hot start for this pass offense. All three receivers and Foles will have low percentage owned GPP appeal in DFS lineups.

  Cowboys | Amari Cooper has intrinsic muscle strain    Thu Aug 22, 04:26 PM

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (foot) is dealing with an intrinsic muscle strain in his foot as opposed to plantar fasciitis, according to Mickey Spagnola of the team's website.

Footballguys view: Either way, it is something that could be a nagging issue that affects his play, or it could be nothing. It does give you a little pause if you are taking Cooper in the third round and makes Michael Gallup more attractive in the second half of the draft.

  Texans | Keke Coutee still not ready to practice    Thu Aug 22, 02:18 PM

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) remains sidelined with a sprained ankle, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Footballguys view: Coutee is very questionable for Week 1, which makes Duke Johnson a very intriguing PPR RB2/Flex in the season opener against the Saints and for however long Coutee is out. Coutee had built a lot of momentum this offseason, but couldn't sustain it through the preseason. He's still worth a pick and stash in the second half of PPR drafts.

  Cardinals | Michael Crabtree lands 1-year deal    Thu Aug 22, 12:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Crabtree has agreed to a one-year, $3.25 million contract with an additional $2.25 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Crabtree's contract is sizable enough to look at him as a clear top 4-5 receiver on the team who could get the third most snaps and targets on the team.

  Bears | Anthony Miller could have limited role    Thu Aug 22, 10:12 AM

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) could have a limited role in the offense early in the season as he missed most of organized team activities and minicamp to a shoulder injury and most of the preseason with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Taylor Gabriel and Javon Wims could see more snaps if Miller brought along slowly and Trey Burton could see more middle of the field targets as long as he is healthy. Miller is still worth a late round stash, but it's a bummer that he's coming into the season banged up after having offseason shoulder surgery to fix a problem that he played with for most of 2018.

  Packers | J'Mon Moore likely to be cut    Thu Aug 22, 02:50 AM

Green Bay Packers WR J'Mon Moore has a 'pretty slim' chance of making the 53-man roster, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who notes that Moore has had way too many drops in camp. Moore was a fourth-round pick last year.

Footballguys view: Moore could get added elsewhere if a team had a high grade on him and he is likely to be on a practice squad somewhere after making the Packers roster last year.

  Cardinals | Michael Crabtree agrees to terms    Thu Aug 22, 12:06 AM

The Arizona Cardinals signed free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Ravens) to a one-year contract on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Crabtree could have some fringe PPR value due to his familiarity with the system and the Cardinals likely play volume and lack of experience behind their top two receivers, but he's only a waiver wire watch list name right now.

  Browns | Cleveland claims Montrel Meander    Wed Aug 21, 08:24 PM

  Seahawks | D.K. Metcalf considered week-to-week    Wed Aug 21, 07:53 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (knee) is considered week-to-week because his knee surgery showed minimal damage, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll is not able to say if Metcalf will be ready for Week 1 but indicated that Metcalf should not be sidelined long.

Footballguys view: Jaron Brown might end up being the better Week 1 play than David Moore if Metcalf can't go. Moore has been quiet this summer and Brown has stuck in the top three receivers during camp. Metcalf is still worth drafting in typical leagues with a likely short time out of the lineup.

  49ers | San Francisco makes roster moves    Wed Aug 21, 07:42 PM

Free-agent OT Andrew Lauderdale (Jaguars) and S Tyree Robinson (49ers) signed one-year contracts with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, Aug. 21. Financial terms were not disclosed. The team also waived OT Christian DiLauro and RB Brandon Wilds as well as waived/injured WR Shawn Poindexter (knee).

  Cardinals | Kevin White cut    Wed Aug 21, 06:31 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Kevin White was released Wednesday, Aug. 21, according to a source.

Footballguys view: White was once a top 10 pick but a combination of injuries and lack of impact has made his career a footnote at this point. He'll be lucky if he gets a look in another camp.

  Redskins | Two Redskins WRs may not play Thursday    Wed Aug 21, 06:00 PM

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn (thumb) will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22, while WR Paul Richardson (quadriceps) probably will also miss the game.

Footballguys view: Terry McLaurin is the one Washington receiver with no injuries and momentum going into the third preseason game, which is a bad sign for their offense.

  Raiders | Antonio Brown traveling with team    Wed Aug 21, 05:38 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown is traveling with the team to Winnipeg for their preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22. QB Derek Carr said he plans to work with Brown during pregame warmups.

Footballguys view: Brown is catching up after missing most of camp and the preseason. He's a risky pick, but if he's falling to the third the risk is better priced in than earlier in the offseason when he was as high as an early second round pick.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans out for preseason game    Wed Aug 21, 12:26 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (leg) won't play in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: The injury doesn't sound serious, but we should monitor it closely in the week of practice leading up to the season opener against the 49ers, when Evans should see a lot of Richard Sherman.

  Dolphins | Jakeem Grant terms    Wed Aug 21, 11:48 AM

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant's four-year deal is worth up to $24 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Grant is a good return man with some deep threat speed and slot receiver quicks. This means the new regime really likes him and it could be a bad development for Albert Wilson, who is still not 100%.

  Browns | Braxton Miller signs with CLE    Wed Aug 21, 10:17 AM

Free-agent WR Braxton Miller (Eagles) signed an undisclosed deal with the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, Aug. 21.

  Lions | Jordan Lasley signs with Detroit    Wed Aug 21, 02:43 AM

The Detroit Lions signed free-agent WR Jordan Lasley (Raiders) Tuesday, Aug. 20. In a corresponding move, RB Justin Stockton was released.

Footballguys view: Lasley hasn't been good enough to stick with the Raiders or Ravens, but he is promising enough to get signed right away by the wide receiver poor Lions. Normally we'd say after getting cut twice this summer, he is a long shot to make the team, but the Lions woes at his position give him a larger opening to make the team.

  Cowboys | Other extensions not imminent in Big D?    Tue Aug 20, 06:19 PM

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday, Aug. 20, is doesn't feel like there's any real movement on contract extensions for QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott or WR Amari Cooper, according to David Helman of Jones added things could move fast.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have some big-money deals to hand out, and they are dragging their feet at this least with these three players. On Tuesday, the Cowboys signed LB Jaylon Smith to a new five-year, $64 million extension. We'll see if there's movement on any of the 'big 3' in the near future.

  Patriots | Demaryius Thomas cleared to practice    Tue Aug 20, 04:17 PM

New England Patriots WR Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) was activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Getting activated off the PUP list means the Patriots don't think Thomas will miss six weeks to begin the season. He might not be ready for Week 1, but Thomas feels like he could be. With Josh Gordon returning, any potential fantasy value Thomas had (if healthy) takes a hit.

  Cardinals | Hakeem Butler suffers serious hand injury    Tue Aug 20, 02:27 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler (hand) was diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in his hand and is a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the big-bodied rookie here. Butler was working to carve out a spot on the depth chart with fellow rookies Andy Isabella and Keesean Johnson. That trio of rookie is of course behind Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the pecking order. Butler is now likely to be shut down for at least half of his rookie season.

  Vikings | Olabisi Johnson showing versatility    Tue Aug 20, 02:42 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Olabisi Johnson's versatility as a receiver and ability to play special teams have earned him more playing time, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'He's a guy that can play multiple spots, and I think the more he has done that, the more he's been able to get involved in the offense,' Zimmer said.

Footballguys view: Zimmer was originally disappointed with the 2019 seventh-round pick out of Colorado State. Earlier in camp, reports surfaced that Olabisi was struggling with picking up the offense. That no longer seems to be the case, and Olabisi could push for a spot on the 53-man roster. The Vikings are looking for an upgrade at the No. 3 receiver behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow pushing for time    Tue Aug 20, 02:38 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow is 'in line for a significant role' this season, according to Rob Demovsky of, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Kumerow is the type of receiver he likes working with. 'He's just a very smart guy, cerebral guy, and you guys know I love playing with those kind of guys,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: This has been a consistent drumbeat all offseason long. Kumerow is a dynasty prospect we've stashed in deeper leagues, but he could carve out a larger role than expected in 2019. He could provide Rodgers with a consistent target as a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Packers this season.

  Eagles | DeSean Jackson thriving in Philly    Tue Aug 20, 02:30 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has made 'at least one splash play' during each practice, according to to Tim McManus of, and McManus believes Jackson is going to 'do some damage this season.'

Footballguys view: It's just like old times. Jackson returns to the Eagles this year to be the deep threat for Carson Wentz. That role and his skill set make Jackson a flex-worthy player for your fantasy team. Jackson has a current ADP of WR48 (10.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jaguars | DJ Chark standing out    Tue Aug 20, 02:08 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark has been 'the most impressive receiver' during training camp, according to Michael DiRocco of

Footballguys view: The Jaguars may not have a high-powered passing attack, but they do have a talented group of receivers. Chark has speed to burn and can blow by defenders downfield with ease. While Dede Westbrook is getting drafted as a WR3/flex play for Fantasy GMs, Chark is currently not getting drafted in 12-team PPR leagues on average. That means you can grab him with the last pick if you want a 'lottery ticket' wide receiver or just keep Chark on your waiver wire speed dial at the start of the season.

  Texans | Tyron Johnson a fit in Houston?    Tue Aug 20, 01:58 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Derrick Willies has worked as a starter in three-receiver sets during training camp. 'You can tell he was working in the offseason and showed up ready for camp,' QB Baker Mayfield said.

Footballguys view: Willies has a great size/speed combination, measuring in at 6'4" 210 pounds. He runs fast, jumps high and can make big plays downfield. We'll continue to monitor the former Texas Tech receiver in super deep dynasty formats.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers has 'taken advantage of his opportunities,' according to QB Tom Brady. 'The football doesn't care how much experience you have,' Brady said. 'It just knows that when I let that ball go, it's got to be in the hands of the guy who it's intended for.'

Footballguys view: Meyers was consistent in college at North Carolina State as a slot receiver. He's not crazy athletic but Meyers knows how to get open on underneath routes. We'll monitor him in super deep dynasty formats.
