  • Todd Davis Placed On Reserve/Retired List

    The New York Giants placed linebacker Todd Davis on the reserve/retired list Tuesday. The 29-year-old called it a career on Tuesday. "I had to work hard to get to a certain point in my career, and it felt like people were asking me to start all over," said Davis. "It's time for me to move on to other ventures." Davis led the Broncos in tackles 2016, 2018-2019, and was part of the Super Bowl 50 championship team. Davis racked up 505 tackles, three sacks, one interception, and two fumble recoveries across 96 games in his NFL career.

  • Blake Martinez Activated From COVID List

    New York Giants linebacker Blake Martinez was activated from the reserve/COVID list Tuesday. He was cleared to rejoin his teammates after spending a about a week on the COVID list. Martinez led the Giants with 151 tackles last season to go along with 3.0 sacks, one interception, and two forced fumbles across 16 games in 2021. The 27-year-old is the Giants' top inside linebacker and will have a vital role in the Giants defense this year. Martinez is expected to be all systems go by Week 1, and fantasy managers in IDP league formats can draft him as a top-10 linebacker in upcoming drafts in 2021.

  • Giants Will Work Out Josh Doctson This Week

    Free-agent wide receiver Josh Doctson will work out for the New York Giants this week. The former first-round pick last played in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings in 2019, appearing in one game without recording a catch. Doctson opted out of the 2020 season and was released by the New York Jets in May. The Giants are deep at wide receiver, and even if Doctson makes the roster, the 28-year-old is not on the fantasy radar in 2021.

  • Calvin Ridley Says Foot Is 'Definitely Fixed' Following Offseason Surgery

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley told reporters that his foot is "totally, definitely fixed" at training camp Tuesday. Ridley played through the injury last season, asserting his status as one of the league's best wideouts with a 90-catch, 1,374-yard, nine-touchdown season. The Falcons are understandably working him into camp slowly, as he is now the unquestioned number-one target in the offense with Julio Jones in Tennessee. Now fully healthy, Ridley could command a target share as high as any pass-catcher in the NFL this season, making him an excellent choice as a WR1 for fantasy teams at his current 23 ADP, particularly in PPR formats.

  • Robert Tonyan "Unstoppable" In Practice

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan's connection with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in practice on Tuesday was described as "unstoppable" by those in attendance. Tonyan enjoyed a breakout campaign last season, catching 52 passes for 586 yards while tying for league lead among tight ends in touchdowns with 11. It may only be a week into camp but Tonyan's connection with Rodgers appears to be in midseason form. Tonyan may be hard-pressed to repeat his touchdown totals from last season but should be a high-end fantasy choice among tight ends based on the targets he should see in the offense.

  • Randall Cobb Making Plays In Camp

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is back with his old team and already is making plays in camp. The veteran receiver has made plays over the middle consistently during practice and was seen wide open down the field but failed to connect with backup quarterback Jordan Love. Cobb's numbers dipped in almost every category last season, catching only 38 passes for 441 yards and three touchdowns while also battling injuries. Cobb may not be the player he once was but could be rejuvenated in Green Bay catching passes from future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers.

  • Steelers Want To Sign T.J. Watt To Extension Before Regular Season

    The Pittsburgh Steelers would reportedly like to sign linebacker T.J. Watt to a contract extension before the start of the regular season. Watt, who has 29.5 sacks over the past two seasons, has one year remaining on his rookie deal. Team president Art Rooney II told reporters on Tuesday that he thinks the team will be able to get a deal done with Watt before the regular-season opener. Rooney stated, "Yeah, we'd like to get T.J.'s deal done before the start of the season. That's the goal. I don't like to get into those details in terms of the discussions, but we're going to try to get it done by the start of the season." Watt will play for $10.089 million in 2021 with the possibility to enter free agency following the season, although it appears unlikely that the Steelers will allow their star pass rusher to leave.

  • Mason Rudolph Will Start HOF Game

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin revealed on Tuesday that Mason Rudolph will be the team's starting quarterback in the Hall of Fame Game against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday. It sounds as though Dwayne Haskins will finish the first half with Joshua Dobbs finishing the game. Not surprisingly, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not take the field in the team's first preseason game. Rudolph is still the team's No. 2 quarterback while Haskins and Dobbs are in a position battle for the No. 3 job. That being said, Haskins has reportedly been impressing during camp and could overtake Rudolph if he can play well in Pittsburgh's preseason contests.

  • Quez Watkins Standing Out At Eagles Camp

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Quez Watkins has been a standout performer in Eagles training camp so far this year. Eagles beat reporter Tim McManus wrote that Watkins, "stood out for a second straight day," after Tuesday's practice. With DeVonta Smith (knee) unable to practice, Travis Fulgham, Jalen Reagor, and Greg Ward saw most of the first team reps, but Watkins impressed with the few chances he received. The sixth-round pick from last year's draft out of Southern Miss had a forgettable rookie season, catching just seven passes for 106 yards and a touchdown in six games, but he did show some flashes of upside on the field last season as well. Watkins is buried on the Eagles depth chart, but could be a decent dart throw in very deep leagues and best ball formats.

  • Jalen Hurts Getting Mixed Results In Training Camp

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is seeing mixed results in training camp so far. Reporting on Tuesday's practice, Eagles beat writer Tim McManus wrote that Hurts was, "erratic during individual drills but settled in for team drills." Hurts seems to be forming good chemistry with tight end Zach Ertz, with Tuesday making it two days in a row where beat writers have pointed out that Hurts and Ertz connected for a big play. The Eagles haven't "officially" named a starting quarterback yet, but it's not going to be Joe Flacco or Nick Mullens. Hurts has upside, but also has one of the wider ranges of possible outcomes this season. Any fantasy managers drafting him should try to snag a more solid if perhaps unexciting guy in the later rounds to serve as a backup plan.

  • Tre'Quan Smith Exits Practice Early

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed) left Tuesday's practice early due to injury. Smith was able to walk off under his own power, leaving hope that it isn't something too serious. Potential fantasy investors should check back on his status in the coming days. The 25-year-old has been a sleeper choice in fantasy circles in the past- though this season presents his best opportunity for a breakout year yet, with Michael Thomas (ankle) sidelined for the foreseeable future. Smith's ADP figures to rise, so long as he's not dealing with a serious injury.

  • Matthew Stafford Sustains Thumb Injury

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (thumb) sustained an injury during Tuesday's practice when his thumb struck a teammate's helmet. X-Rays came back negative, which thankfully pointed to nothing more serious. However, he is still expected to miss a few days of practice at a minimum according to a source. As long as this injury remains minor and doesn't linger, he'll have fully recovered by the time the season rolls around.

  • Lamar Miller Having Strong Training Camp

    Washington Football Team running back Lamar Miller is having an impressive training camp as he battles for a roster spot. Zach Selby reports that Miller has been taking off for some nice runs and making plays during his practice reps. Miller will need to continue to impress if he wants to crack the Washington roster, as they will likely only have three running backs when the season starts. Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic are locked into the RB1 and RB2 roles, so Miller is battling with Peyton Barber, Jaret Patterson, and Jonathan Williams for the final spot on the depth chart. Even if Miller makes the final roster he won't possess any fantasy value unless Gibson or McKissic miss any time.

  • Tyreek Hill Leaves Practice Early With Knee Tendinitis

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill left Tuesday's practice early with knee tendinitis. Head Coach Andy Reid didn't seem too concerned and said that the team decided to just back off a little bit with their star wide receiver. Hill is coming off a dynamite season and with 87 receptions for 1276 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns. He also chipped in with two touchdowns on the ground. It makes all the sense in the world to be safe with Hill this offseason and it appears that he will be day-to-day for the moment. Hill will continue to operate with tight end Travis Kelce as the top option for quarterback Patrick Mahomes. If the injury were to linger and Hill was forced to miss time, wide receivers Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle would benefit the most and be worth rostering in all formats. Hill remains a WR1 entering this season in one of the most dangerous offenses in the league.

  • Garrett Gilbert Listed As QB2 In Dallas

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Garrett Gilbert was listed as the QB2 on the Cowboys unofficial depth chart released on Tuesday. Dak Prescott is QB1 of course, but Garrett seems like the favorite to work as his backup. Ben DiNucci and Cooper Rush were listed third and fourth on the depth chart. With Prescott returning from a serious ankle injury and already dealing with a shoulder injury in camp, the Cowboys backup quarterback could be forced to do more than just hold a clipboard this season. Gilbert started in Week 9 last season, completing 21 of his 38 pass attempts for 243 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. The Cowboys season will immediately be in jeopardy if Prescott is forced to miss extended time.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick Clearly The Starter In Washington

    Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera wanted friendly competition for the starting quarterback spot during training camp, as veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke battled for the starting nod. It seemed it was Fitzpatrick's job to lose, and that continues to be the case as we head into the second week of camp. During the full pad session on Tuesday, Fitzpatrick connected multiple times with tight end Logan Thomas in the end zone and got running back J.D. McKissic involved in the passing game as well. Fitzpatrick is surrounded by a formidable group of skill position players and has been put in a position to succeed under Scott Turner's offensive system. He is a QB2 in fantasy with weekly streaming appeal.

  • Ron Rivera Not Concerned About Curtis Samuel's Absence

    Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera was asked if he was concerned with Curtis Samuel's absence from the start of training camp, but Rivera made it known that he is confident Samuel can come in and be comfortable in the offense right away. Samuel is familiar with Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner, as he played in that offense during his time with the Carolina Panthers. Samuel was held out of OTAs with a groin injury which also kept him off the field for the beginning of camp. Samuel was then added to the COVID-19 reserve list, further delaying his arrival at camp. He will need some time to get on the same page with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he should have plenty of time to build a rapport prior to week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Samuel should have the biggest role of his career in 2021, making him a WR3 in fantasy with upside for more.

  • Pharaoh Brown Activated

    The Houston Texans have activated tight end Pharaoh Brown from the team's non-football injury list. Brown was seen practicing in pads on Tuesday, so it appears that he's now a full go in camp. Houston's got an interesting tight end room, with Brown competing for snaps with Jordan Akins, Kahale Warring, and rookie Brevin Jordan. Ryan Izzo is also on the roster but is likely a long shot to actually make the team. Brown played in 13 games for the Texans last year, catching 14 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns. There's not much fantasy impact here, though Brown could block a more promising tight end from seeing the field.

  • Kenny Golladay Leaves Practice With Leg Injury

    New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay left practice on Tuesday with an apparent leg injury. Considering Golladay was limited last season in Detroit by a hip injury, any lower-body issue should be seen as a concern right now. Maybe Golladay will be fine, but he went inside with a trainer and didn't appear to return to practice. For now, fantasy managers should monitor this situation closely, as Golladay missing time would be a huge hit for the Giants, as quarterback Daniel Jones would lose his best receiver. Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton would see more work in his absence if this winds up being a lingering issue.

  • Colts Not Trading For Nick Foles Or Other Veteran QBs

    With quarterback Carson Wentz (foot) sidelined and perhaps set to miss some regular-season time, many have wondered if the Indianapolis Colts will look to trade for a backup quarterback, like Chicago's Nick Foles, who is familiar with the system that the team runs. But according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Colts aren't looking to trade for any veteran quarterbacks right now. That would lead to Jacob Eason possibly seeing some action early in the season. Eason has never thrown a football in an NFL game, so there will be a lot of uncertainty from a fantasy perspective if he winds up starting to open the year.

  • D'Onta Foreman Working Out For Falcons

    The Atlanta Falcons have long been expected to make a move to shore up their running back depth. On Tuesday, the team brought in former Texans and Titans running back D'Onta Foreman for a visit. Foreman likely won't be able to beat out Mike Davis for starting reps if signed, but he could impact the viability of Qadree Ollison or Javian Hawkins, the current backups to Davis. Foreman's NFL career never really got off the ground after an Achilles injury but he did play in 2020 for the first time since 2018, rushing 22 times for 95 yards and adding one touchdown catch on his only reception. He's still young, but there's concern that the Achilles injury has limited his movement and explosiveness. He'd be a late round dart throw at best if signed.

  • Damien Harris Has Legitimate Shot At Being Lead Back

    New England Patriots running back Damien Harris is expected to compete for the lead back job in training camp. He has a legitimate shot at taking the job, according to head coach Bill Belichick. "Now he has an opportunity to really compete for the lead spot..I've been impressed with the commitment that he's shown," said Belichick. Harris did a fine job as the lead back last season. He'll have Sony Michel, James White, and rookie Rhamondre Stevenson chasing after him. However, Harris should win the starting spot, assuming he stays healthy in camp. He'll likely find himself as a middle tier RB2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Keith Kirkwood Leaves Practice On Stretcher

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Keith Kirkwood took a hard hit to the head in practice from defensive back JT Ibe, leading to Kirkwood being taken off the field on a stretcher and Ibe being ejected from practice. Kirkwood was taken away by ambulance. The 26-year-old receiver isn't expected to play much of a role this year outside of special teams, but it's still a scary moment to see an injury like this, especially in training camp practices. The team also waived Ibe after the incident.

  • Deshaun Watson Absent From Tuesday's Practice

    Despite his trade request and looming legal troubles, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has been present at the team's training camp practices so far. But on Tuesday, with the team having their first padded practice, Watson was not on the field. Considering he's been practicing with the fourth team so far, Watson's absence as the team ramps up the intensity of their practices shouldn't be viewed as a surprise. He's not in Houston's future plans at this point.

  • Jordan Love Hits And Misses In Camp

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love enjoyed some ups and downs in 11-on-11 drills during Monday's training camp practice. On one play, Love under-threw receiver Malik Taylor on a deep route that could have led to a touchdown. But later in the sequence, the backup passer rolled out of the pocket and delivered a perfect strike to receiver Chris Blair for a long touchdown. While all eyes have been on Aaron Rodgers decision to return to the team for his 17th straight season, the development of Love is a storyline worth monitoring. If the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer were to get injured, Love will get first crack to run the offense in his place.

  • Dazz Newsome Removed From PUP List

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Dazz Newsome was removed from the team's PUP list and was limited in practice on Monday. The 221st overall pick in this year's NFL draft broke his collarbone during rookie minicamp and thus far has missed four practices of training camp. These first practices can be crucial for rookie's to make a name for themselves in hopes of playing a role during the regular season. Newsome flashes downfield speed that brings a different element to a Bears offense that struggled last season. The more likely scenario could be Newsome carving out a role for himself on special teams first before getting any real game action that would garner fantasy attention.

  • Jesse James Making Strong First Impression

    Chicago Bears tight end Jesse James continues to make impact plays only five days after signing with his new team. The veteran pass-catcher has come on strong right out of the gate and has developed quick, albeit brief, chemistry with rookie passer Justin Fields. "You guys have seen him make some nice big catches over the middle, on the sideline," Head coach Matt Nagy said before Monday's practice. "He's got super long arms and he's got friendly hands. It's a friendly target." James will be battling for the TE3 role on the team behind teammates Jimmy Graham and Cole Kmet.

  • Andy Dalton Has Grasp Early Of New Offense

    Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton has "full control of the offense", according to head coach Matt Nagy. The Bears coaching staff has praised the veteran passer for his confidence, his anticipation on throws and his grasp of the offense in such a short time. Nagy told reporters Monday, "He's got full control of this offense. Without a doubt. We could play a game tomorrow and be just fine." Dalton's signing may have come with a shrug to Bears fans at the time but the veteran has acclimated himself quickly to the situation. Dalton is still on pace to start Week 1 against the Rams.

  • Justin Fields Has Best Day Of Camp

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields enjoyed his best day of practice on the fifth day of training camp, per several reports. Fields flashed every tool in his uber-talented toolbox; flashing the speed to extend plays, show anticipation or patience to spring receivers free and capped it off with a beautiful deep ball to receiver Javon Wims for a touchdown. The rookie passer has gotten mixed reviews from his first few practices but it is fair to expect bumps in the road so early in camp. Fields is expected to see plenty of playing time during the preseason, giving Bears fans and fantasy managers a lot to get excited about in the coming weeks.

  • D'Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams Splitting Carries

    Detroit Lions running backs D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams have been splitting carries with the first-team offense through the first few practices of training camp. Swift comes into camp as the incumbent starter, but head coach Dan Campbell has been very clear that he will ride "the hot hand". "We're going to use both of those guys, they know that," Campbell said. For fantasy teams worried that Swift will lose touches to Williams, Campbell also noted that Swift isn't going to be stuck on the sidelines if Williams is producing. "If Jamaal is in there, we're rolling. Jamaal is going to be rolling and we'll use Swift for other things, which is fine," Campbell said. "That's a good problem to have." The Lions backfield situation will be one to monitor closely in the preseason leading up to drafts.

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Breshad Perriman is hoping to gain more chemistry with quarterback Jared Goff after the first few days of camp. Perriman was able to haul in one of the only deep-ball attempts by Goff in a recent practice but the receiver has been quiet, thus far, in camp. The Lions are banking on teammate Tyrell Williams to be the number-one receiver on the team but Perriman is being counted as well to heavily contribute. Perriman should see plenty of action when preseason games begin.

  • Tyrell Williams Looking For Big Plays In Camp

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams has been quiet, thus far, through the first few days of training camp. Williams simply hasn't made a lot of plays, per reports, but this could be attributed to several factors. The talented receiver is in a new offense, is trying to rebound from previous injuries and his new quarterback, Jared Goff, has repeatedly passed on throws downfield for accurate, check-down completions. The Lions are banking on Williams to step up and be the WR1 on the team but it may take some time.

  • Jared Goff Accurate But Indecisive Early In Camp

    Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff has earned early praise for his accuracy through the first few days of camp but also has shown indecisiveness. Goff was acquired in the offseason from the Rams and is trying to reinvigorate his career on a team that is rebuilding. He has been on target with his throws early on in training camp but clearly is trying to develop chemistry with so many new players. Goff was even quoted as saying, "Checkdowns are my friend." That is not exactly positive news for his fantasy prospects, as Goff's inconsistent deep ball is, perhaps, the central reason why he is no longer on the Rams. Goff will be on the fringes of fantasy starter material in standard formats at this time.

  • Justin Jefferson Determined To Avoid Sophomore Slump

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson is out to prove doubters, and fantasy teams worldwide, that his rookie season wasn't a fluke. Jefferson racked up 88 catches for 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns last season and opposing defenses will certainly have their eyes set on the second-year receiver. Jefferson could certainly be in line for a regression but Jefferson figures to be a focal point of the passing offense. The talented receiver should still see around the 125 targets he amassed last season and his 15.9 yards per catch cements him as one of the most dangerous downfield threats. Jefferson is in line to be a WR1 selection in upcoming drafts.

  • Diontae Johnson Still Having Issues With Drops

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson turned in a breakout season in 2020, but he also led the NFL in dropped passes. According to reports, the talented wide receiver is still having some issues with drops during training camp. Johnson reportedly dropped a few balls during practice on Saturday, including one in the end zone on a Mason Rudolph pass. The issue doesn't directly affect Johnson from a fantasy perspective as drops don't equate to negative fantasy points, although it could become an issue if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger starts to lose confidence in Johnson and starts to look to deliver the ball elsewhere. It could also open the door for Chase Claypool or JuJu Smith-Schuster to overtake Johnson as the No. 1 WR on the team. That being said, Johnson's talent is undeniable as an explosive wideout who can get open against the defense with ease. For now, consider Johnson as a solid WR2 in PPR fantasy leagues for the upcoming season.

  • Baker Mayfield Looking Sharp In Camp

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield looked sharp in camp on Monday as he gears up for the start of the season. According to onlookers, Mayfield connected on several big plays in the passing game, including deep touchdowns to Rashard Higgins and KhaDarel Hodge. Mayfield could have had a third deep TD pass but Alexander Hollins dropped what would have been a 70-yard score. The fourth-year quarterback could be queued up for a career year in his second year playing under Kevin Stefanski. Mayfield is a decent target as a QB2 in fantasy drafts this year.

  • Anthony Walker Limps Off

    Cleveland Browns linebacker Anthony Walker limped off of the field during practice on Monday, according to reports. Walker walked slowly toward the locker room after tossing his helmet and getting his right leg looked at on the sidelines. After leaving the Indianapolis Colts and signing with Cleveland this offseason, Walker is expected to call the plays on the defense this year. He could have some value in IDP leagues considering his projected every-down role. Some beat reporters speculated that Walker suffered a cramp but the team has yet to update his status.

  • Rhamondre Stevenson Activated From Injury List

    New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (undisclosed) has been activated from the non-football injury list. The Pats selected Stevenson in the fourth round of this year's draft. He draws comparisons to LeGarrette Blount for his size and ability to truck over defenders. However, Stevenson was also an efficient receiver at Oklahoma. His return could be troublesome for Sony Michel and James White. It wouldn't be shocking to see both players lose snaps to Stevenson. He could be worth a dynasty stash, but Stevenson will likely get lost in the shuffle in New England.

  • Jarrett Stidham Will Miss Training Camp

    New England Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham (back) underwent surgery and will miss the rest of training camp. Stidham had back surgery and was given a three-month timetable. He'll miss the beginning of the regular season, but wasn't going to compete for a starting spot anyway. Veteran Cam Newton and rookie Mac Jones are battling for the starting quarterback job. Brian Hoyer will compete with Jake Dolegala for the No. 3 spot on the Patriots roster. Stidham won't be worth drafting in fantasy leagues and will almost certainly be the third string once he's healthy.

  • D.J. Fluker Placed On Injured Reserve

    Miami Dolphins right guard D.J. Fluker (knee) has been placed on the injured reserve to begin training camp. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero hinted that the Dolphins might cut Fluker with an injury settlement. Fluker is currently sidelined due to a meniscus injury and should be back in roughly a month. The veteran guard made eight starts with the Baltimore Ravens last season. The Dolphins might keep Fluker around as depth, but that all depends on how they feel about their options in training camp.

  • Will Fuller Nearing Return To Practice

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller (undisclosed) is nearing a return to practice, according to head coach Brian Flores. Fuller went down during the team's first practice, but the team is likely just playing it safe. The Dolphins are without Preston Williams (foot), DeVante Parker (undisclosed), and Fuller to kick off camp. It's worth noting that Fuller will miss the first game of the 2022 season while serving his suspension from last season. Despite that, he should have at least WR3 value in the Dolphins offense. Although, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Dolphins manage his workload throughout the season.

  • Josh Allen Not Close To Contract Extension

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen does not appear close to a contract extension with the organization. The Bills exercised their fifth-year option on Allen to keep him under team control through 2022. It sounds like the two sides could break off talks before August 15 and wait until next offseason. Buffalo is likely going to wait and see what kind of extension Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield receive before signing Allen. A deal in the ballpark of $100 million guaranteed doesn't sound insane for an Allen extension down the road.

  • Marquise Goodwin Making Early Camp Impact

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has flashed his potential during the early stages of training camp. The 30-year-old is healthy and ready to return to the field after opting out of last season. Thus far, his arrival in Chicago is tantalizing, hooking up with quarterback Andy Dalton on some deep passes through the first few practices. GM Ryan Pace also has taken notice, telling The Athletic, "Everybody talks about his speed, but his professionalism he's one of the first guys out there, all the extra things that he does," Pace said. "He's a really good route runner. He's been an awesome addition." Goodwin is projected to fit in as the number-three receiver in the offense and, if healthy, could become a WR5/6 option in fantasy.

  • Andy Dalton Flashing Veteran Confidence

    Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton has been impressing the coaching staff and teammates on the field and off through the first few days in camp. The veteran passer has been anointed the starting quarterback with rookie Justin Fields waiting in the wings. But Dalton has come into camp with plenty of confidence and has connected on some huge downfield throws through the first few practices. Dalton is expected to start the season under center but his production will be paramount to stay on the field in 2021.

  • Justin Fields Showing Intangibles

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields' first few days of training camp have been typical of a rookie thus far. Reports of every dynamite, next-level throw has been met with a misread or an interception in the early portions of camp. This is completely to be expected as Fields adjusts to the speed of the NFL game. But GM Ryan Pace continues to sing the praises of his rookie passers intangibles, telling The Athletic that he recently was at Halas Hall on Saturday afternoon thinking he was all by himself until he noticed Fields putting in extra work alone in the weight room. Fields continues to check plenty of boxes that should have Bears fans excited but fantasy teams need to have patience for a player whose ceiling is limitless.

  • Colts Could Have Interest In Nick Foles

    Chicago Bears backup quarterback Nick Foles currently is the team's third string quarterback behind Andy Dalton and Justin Fields. But for how long? Just two days after Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy spoke about the trade value in having a third-string quarterback with a Super Bowl ring like Foles, there suddenly is a need for help at the position with the Indianapolis Colts, who've lost starter Carson Wentz to a foot injury. "Listen, Frank Reich is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, coaches of all time. He understands me as a player," Foles told reporters. "He understands me as a person. But you know, I haven't had any talks with them. I'm a Chicago Bear right now." Simply put, Foles on the Bears roster right now is a luxury. The veteran struggled mightily behind a poor offensive line last season for the Bears but could immediately slide in as starter for the Colts. This situation is worth monitoring and a trade could be imminent before Week 1.

  • David Montgomery Has 'Chip On Shoulder' Mentality

    Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery's training camp is off to a great start. Several reports have remarked that the third-year back looks a step quicker and his focus to take his game to the next level has been evident. General manager Ryan Pace took the time to compliment Montgomery's camp specifically, telling The Athletic, "He looks faster," he said. "I know he worked on it a lot this summer. I know I keep saying it, but he's obsessed. He's got a chip on his shoulder. He's really locked in and focused right now. He worked his butt off all summer, and I think it's evident in the early days of (camp)." Montgomery was a surefire RB1 in the final five weeks of last season but will need consistent touches in the Bears offense to solidify that status in 2021.

  • Kellen Mond Tests Positive For COVID

    Minnesota Vikings backup quarterback Kellen Mond has been placed on the team's COVID-19 list on Monday after testing positive over the weekend. Mond's positive test has also removed starting quarterback Kirk Cousins and third-stringer Nate Stanley from the practice field due to high-risk close contact. This is not the way Mond wanted to start his pro career and this development seriously hampers the Vikings offense for the rest of this week. All three passers are now in the league's protocols for unvaccinated players and are in line to miss several days, if not this entire week of training camp.

  • Bisi Johnson Placed On Injured Reserve

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bisi Johnson was placed on injured reserve and is out for the 2021 season. Johnson tore his ACL during practice last week and surgery certainly is in the near future. The Vikings recently added to their receivers group by signing former Jaguars wideout Dede Westbrook but losing Johnson will affect their depth. The 24-year-old really shined during training camp last season but caught only 14 passes for 189 yards last season in a limited role.

  • Kirk Cousins Lands On COVID-Reserve List

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has been placed on the team's COVID-19 reserve list. Backup quarterback Kellen Mond tested positive over the weekend, sending Cousins and third string quarterback Nate Stanley into protocol as high-risk close contacts. The Vikings will have to make due for at least a couple of days as the entire quarterback room goes through the league's protocols for unvaccinated players. Head coach Mike Zimmer expressed his disappointment and frustration towards the setback and, as of now, there have been no reports of Cousins testing positive. The veteran passer could return to the practice field later this week.

  • Dalton Schultz Seeing Most First Team Reps

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is seeing most of the first team reps in Cowboys training camp so far. With Blake Jarwin (knee) being brought along slowly, Schultz has been the "starting" tight end in practice. He's reportedly looked excellent, leading Cowboys beat writer Jon Machota to write that, "Schultz seems like he has only scratched the surface of what he can be entering his fourth season." Both Jarwin and Schultz are expected to see the field often as part of the Cowboys offense. With the offense expected to be strong again with Dak Prescott back under center, both Schultz and Jarwin could end up being valuable fantasy assets, with whichever of the two emerges as the true starter easily putting up TE1 numbers.

  • CeeDee Lamb Standing Out At Cowboys Camp

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is standing out at Cowboys training camp. Cowboys beat writer Jon Machota reports that, "There is a significant gap between Lamb and everyone else. He's having the best camp of anyone on the roster." That's high praise for a guy on a team with a lot of extremely talented skill position players. Lamb showed many glimpses of greatness in his rookie season, but with the Cowboys offense having a hard time in general, he didn't get the chance to shine that he may be ready for this season. Machota adds that every practice seems to include some kind of incredible play by the sophomore wide receiver. There are a lot of mouths to feed on the Cowboys offense, but Lamb has as much upside as anyone else on the roster.

  • Zach Ertz Having A Good Training Camp So Far

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is reportedly having a strong showing at Eagles training camp so far despite the "odd circumstances" that are surrounding him. Ertz had the play of the day on offense on Sunday, catching a long pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts and rumbling through the defense to add yards after the catch. Ertz now sits behind Dallas Goedert on the tight end depth chart and was given permission to look for a trade but was unable to find one. Still, with the Eagles not particularly deep at wide receiver, they'll likely be running two-tight end sets fairly often so Goedert and Ertz should see the field at the same time. Ertz has a very low floor in fantasy this season, but could end up with a surprisingly high ceiling if the Eagles can figure out their offense.

  • Miles Sanders Has An Edge To Him In Camp

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders "has an edge" in training camp and is "running with purpose." He reportedly got into it with defensive players on several occasions and even escalated to a "quick tussle" with cornerback Zech McPhearson. Even though Sanders sits comfortably atop the Eagles running back depth chart, the Eagles have repeatedly downplayed the idea of having an every-down back for the upcoming season. Sanders should see most of the early down work, but Boston Scott figures to mix in for third downs, and fifth-round pick Kenny Gainwell will likely see the field as well. Sanders always has upside, but his team situation makes him at least somewhat of a risky pick based on his ADP at this point.

  • Jalen Reagor Back On The Practice Field

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor was back on the practice field in Eagles camp, taking team reps for the first time. Reagor failed his initial conditioning test and is reportedly dealing with the loss of a family member, so he may need some time to be brought up to speed. With rookie DeVonta Smith (knee) officially week-to-week, Reagor should get plenty of chances to show what he can do with quarterback Jalen Hurts. Coming off a disappointing rookie season, Reagor has a lot to prove and will hope to improve on his 31-396-1 rookie campaign.

  • Titans Claim Sam Ficken, Waive Blake Haubeil

    The kicker competition in Tennessee has taken a turn, as the Titans have claimed former Jets kicker Sam Ficken off waivers and have waived Blake Haubeil. Haubeil had been competing with Tucker McCann for the role, but both players have struggled in camp, especially on longer kicks. Ficken should be expected to win this job at this point after going 12-for-15 on field goals last season. There's not much reason to roster whoever the Titans kicker is in fantasy, though.

  • Deshaun Watson Practicing, But With Fourth Team

    Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is practicing again with the team on Monday, but John McClain of the Houston Chronicle says that he's practicing with the fourth team behind Tyrod Taylor, Davis Mills, and Jeff Driskel. It's another sign that Watson isn't playing football for the Houston Texans in 2021 and that Taylor -- who missed Sunday's practice for personal reasons -- is the starter. Why Houston has Watson on the practice field at all is another question, but don't let his presence confuse you when it comes to the fantasy outlook of this team.

  • Nico Collins Having Impressive Camp

    Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins continued his impressive training camp performance on Monday, catching a deep touchdown after getting past corner John Reid. Collins is expected to play a key role as an outside receiver for this Texans team, though how soon he plays that role is still unclear. It's probably safe to assume he'll be the third receiver on the field, but with Tyrod Taylor likely starting at quarterback, it'll be difficult for Collins to make much of an impact this season, at least on a consistent basis. He's an intriguing dynasty pick, though.

  • Rodrigo Blankenship, Eddy Pineiro Competing For Starting Job

    We have a kicker competition on our hands. The Colts have a pair of promising players competing for the starting job, with second-year kicker Rodrigo Blankenship trying to hold off Eddy Pineiro. Blankenship had a decorated college career at Georgia, then went 32-for-37 last season. But he was just 1-for-3 on kicks of at least 50 yards, which could be part of why the team brought in Pineiro, who kicked for the Bears in 2019, making both of his 50-plus yard attempts while going 23-for-28 overall. Blankenship should win the job, but the fact there's a competition at all is reason to not draft a Colts kicker in most formats.

  • DeVante Parker Off PUP List, Preston Williams On COVID List

    The Miami Dolphins have made a pair of moves at wide receiver, activating DeVante Parker (foot) off the Physically Unable To Perform list and placing Preston Williams on the COVID-19 list. For Parker, this move gets Miami's No. 1 receiver -- for now -- back in the mix as he works to build more rapport with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Parker is a WR4 with upside. As for Williams, after a promising rookie year that saw him play in eight games and catch 32 passes for 428 yards and three touchdowns, he dropped down to 18 receptions for 288 last year. He needs all the practice time he can get if he wants to make an impact in 2021. He's just barely a top-100 option at the wide receiver position.

  • Marquise Brown Has Hamstring Injury

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown is currently dealing with a hamstring injury that's reportedly worse than originally thought, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Brown has now missed three consecutive practices. There's still a lot of time before the regular season, so while hamstring injuries are a definite concern, especially with a receiver like Brown who relies so much on speed, fantasy managers shouldn't panic yet. The Ravens have continued to add pieces at wideout and Brown has struggled with consistency during his career, making him just a WR4 heading into the 2021 season.

  • Saquon Barkley "making a lot of strides"

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) is "making a lot of strides," per head coach Joe Judge. "Very pleased with where Barkley's at," Judge said. "He's mirroring our practices to build up confidence for when he returns." Barkley has shown "tangible progress" while doing rehab work. He is running routes, cutting hard, and sprinting full speed. The 24-year-old began training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List. New York plans to take a "long term" approach with the star running back as he continues to work his back from knee surgery. Judge reportedly wouldn't say how close Barkley is returning to practice or give a potential return date. It's unclear if the No. 2 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft will be ready by Week 1, but Barkley is expected to have a reduced workload to begin the year. Barkley has the talent to be a high-end RB1 and currently has an ADP of 6.3.

  • Devonta Smith Week To Week With Knee Sprain

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith is currently "week to week" with a knee sprain. It doesn't sound like it's something that's worrying the team at this point and a sprain is probably the best-case scenario when it comes to a knee injury, but it's worth noting that Smith will miss some valuable practice time until he returns. He could also miss the preseason, putting him further behind. With second-year receiver Jalen Reagor on the team and quarterback Jalen Hurts showing last season that he isn't great at supporting fantasy receivers, this setback could slow down Smith's development and makes him a riskier fantasy pick in redraft than he already was.

  • Alfred Morris Officially Signs With The Giants

    Free-agent running back Alfred Morris re-signed with the New York Giants on Monday. The 32-year-old had modest success last season and had averaged 4.2 yards per carry. He logged 55 carries for 238 rushing yards and one touchdown over nine games for the Giants in 2020. Morris will compete for a spot on the Giants running back depth chart behind Saquon Barkley and Devontae Booker. The veteran RB is a depth signing and won't have much fantasy value unless Barkley and Booker miss time. Fantasy managers can avoid Morris in upcoming drafts.

    Las Vegas Raiders tight end Foster Moreau had an impressive rookie campaign, finishing his inaugural season with five touchdowns. However, injuries plagued the 24-year-old in 2020, and he ended with just seven catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Nonetheless, head coach John Gruden remains excited about the duo of Moreau and Darren Waller in two tight end formations, so it appears as if he will get some attention from signal-caller Derek Carr. Although Waller is still listed above Moreau on the depth chart, it seems as if there could be plenty of room for him to flourish as well heading toward the new year. As a result, managers looking to fill the void at the position in the later rounds of fantasy drafts should keep him in mind.

  • Amari Cooper Loses Weight During Offseason

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) is still working his way back from ankle surgery in January. Although Cooper currently sits on the physically unable to perform list, head coach Mike McCarthy recently touted the veteran's weight loss during the offseason. While his fantasy outlook is rocky based on his health ailments and competition with Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb for looks from Dak Prescott, the upside is certainly there, so he is worth the risk for those looking for a practical option at the position.

  • Jonah Williams Bulked Up This Offseason

    Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams reportedly bulked up during the offseason. Currently weighing in at around 315 pounds, a 10-pound increase from last season, the 23-year-old hopes the added bulk will make him better equipped to handle opposing defenders. With Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon both suffering season-ending injuries during the 2020-21 campaign, Cincy's offensive unit will undoubtedly benefit from Williams' increase in strength and size.

  • Joe Mixon Reportedly In The Best Shape Of His Career

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has been impressive during training camp. After a foot injury limited him to just six games during the 2020-21 campaign, the former Sooner is getting plenty of attention based on his physical appearance. With an improved offensive line, the return of Frank Pollack, and the departure of Giovani Bernard, Mixon has first-round upside, so fantasy managers should be prepared to jump on him early in upcoming fantasy drafts. Nonetheless, as long as the 24-year-old remains healthy, the potential is there for him to finish as a top-10 back this season, possibly higher.

  • Mike Gesicki Lands On COVID-19 List

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki (illness) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list on Sunday. Gesicki, along with co-offensive coordinator George Godsey, tested positive for the Coronavirus. Although they will likely be ready to go when the season begins in September, it's still unsettling for fantasy managers, primarily if the 25-year-old suffers any long-term effects of the virus. Gesicki has been one of the top producers at the position by compiling at least five touchdowns in each of his last two seasons.

  • Carson Wentz Opting For Rest Over Surgery, Could Play In Week One

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is choosing rest and rehab over surgery at this point in time, and he's still hoping to be under center in week one. Per Ian Rapoport, "If all goes well, Week 1 is in play. If it doesn't improve, the answer may be surgery." It sounds like there is still plenty of uncertainty regarding Wentz's foot injury, but it is positive that rest is even an option at this point. Reunited with Frank Reich, Wentz is looking to bounce back after a rough 2020 season in Philadelphia. Wentz projects as a QB2 if he's healthy enough to play. Monitoring news on how Wentz heals over the next few days will be important, and all Colts fantasy options could see their value dip if Wentz ends up missing any extended amount of time.

  • Matt Breida To Be A Factor In Buffalo?

    Buffalo Bills running back Matt Breida is making noise early in training camp. Per Sal Capaccio, Brieda "has really shown off his speed and quickness through the first four days... he could wind up being more of a factor in the offense than many anticipated when they signed him as a free agent in March." The Bills didn't get much production out of Zach Moss or Devin Singletary in 2020, so Breida certainly could make his mark. Breida has plenty of speed and he's primarily been a change of pace back at the NFL level, averaging a robust 4.9 yards per carry for his career. Even if Breida does take over the backfield the upside isn't huge due to Buffalo's heavy pass rate and Josh Allen's propensity for scoring rushing touchdowns near the goal-line. Breida is only worth drafting in the late rounds of deeper league drafts at this time.

  • Rondale Moore Shining In Training Camp

    Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Rondale Moore is making an excellent impression in his first training camp. Darren Urban had this to say about Moore's performance "It sure looks like Rondale Moore is going to be a player. He hasn't been perfect but he shows up again and again." Urban's take here meshes with what others around the team have been saying as well. Moore, who ran a 4.37-second 40-yard-dash, has elite speed and quickness to go along with major opportunity in the Arizona offense. Like Moore, the other secondary wideouts on the team are yet to prove that they deserve to be the second option behind superstar WR DeAndre Hopkins. Moore's elite athleticism could translate to plenty of production out of the slot in year one if he can mesh with Kyler Murray. Moore's upside makes him one of the best late-round selections and his ADP should continue to rise as camp progresses.

    Arizona Cardinals veteran free agent wide receiver addition A.J. Green is reportedly enjoying a resurgence early in training camp. Per Peter Schrager of NFL Network and Fox Sports, Green "looks incredible out there at Cardinals practice." This news is especially surprising considering that Green looked completely washed up with the Bengals in 2020. Green's pathetic 5.0 yards per target mark ranked 107th among all wideouts last season. It's possible that Green was mailing it in last season, however, as he made it known that he wanted out of Cincinnati. Green figures to be competing with Rondale Moore and Christian Kirk for secondary targets in the offense, so building early chemistry with Kyler Murray is key. If Green continues generating positive buzz later into camp he could make for an intriguing late-round dart throw, but there are higher upside options worth drafting over him right now.

  • Qadree Ollison The RB2 In Atlanta?

    Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison took first-team reps on Sunday, and he appears to be the leader in the race to back up Mike Davis. Ollison is competing with Javian Hawkins and Cordarrelle Patterson for the RB2 role in Atlanta, and right now he "seems like the early favorite for RB2." Ollison had a productive career at Pittsburgh and he was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft. In limited NFL action, Ollison has only averaged 2.3 yards per carry, but he did score four touchdowns on just 23 touches in 2019, so he could be involved near the goal-line in 2021. Ollison is a fringe late-round handcuff in fantasy leagues this season.

    The Cleveland Browns and running back Nick Chubb have agreed upon a contract extension.

Chubb was the No. 35 pick in the 2018 draft and has been selected to the Pro Bowl twice over his three years in the league. One of the best pure runners in the league, Chubb will continue to form a formidable one-two backfield punch with teammate Kareem Hunt, who was lobbying for the Browns to extend Chubb earlier in the offseason. Chubb can be trusted as a rock-solid RB1 in fantasy drafts for the 2021 season.

Meyer challenged Chark to play stronger, and per SI's Kassidy Hill "Chark has worked to respond, by all indications, even bodying up a few defenders on Saturday." Chark is reportedly up to 6-foot-4 210 pounds after playing below 200 pounds in 2020. Despite a disappointing 2020 season in which he finished as just the WR48 in PPR formats, Chark is still an athletic freak and he has plenty of upside this season. With rookie phenom Trevor Lawrence on board, Chark will benefit from the best QB play of his career, which should allow for better efficiency after he posted a poor 7.5 yards per target in 2020. Chark projects as a high-end WR3 with plenty of upside in 2021.

The terms of the deal are unknown, but the agreement comes after New Orleans hosted Freeman for a visit. Both Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray were participants at practice, so the move seems to be a depth signing unless the team indicates otherwise. The seven-year veteran was an All-Pro with the Falcons back in 2015 and 2016 but hasn't reached such highs since, largely due to injury. Freeman figures to be little more than a change-of-pace back in New Orleans unless an injury occurs.

Team reporter Zach Selby noted that Carter has been making plays throughout the entirety of training camp, and his versatility is giving him a strong chance at a roster spot. The dual return ability of Carter is making him stand out, along with some impressive touchdown receptions during the team practices. Carter will not be on the fantasy radar even if he were to make the roster, but his impressive camp is worth noting. A lot would need to transpire for Carter to possess any sort of fantasy value, so he can be disregarded for the time being.

The loss of Scherff for the time being could have an impact on running back Antonio Gibson and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during camp, as the offense will have to take reps with some second-team offensive linemen. This is not a cause for concern, as there will be plenty of time for the Washington Football Team to get their COVID-19 situation under control.
