1.Phillip Lindsay getting first team reps (FantasyPros) Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is getting first team reps and practiced without limitations on the first day of Broncos camp. Analysis: Lindsay didn't receive a single handoff all offseason, so this is a good sign that he is fully healthy heading into training camp. It was previously reported that Lindsay would be eased into action as training camp proceeds, but barring a setback, he should be over last year's wrist injury. Lindsay remains on top of the depth chart and is an RB2 with upside.9 minutes
2.Damon Harrison: Agent meeting with team (RotoWire) Harrison's agent with meet with the Lions in hopes of securing a a new contract, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: Harrison skipped voluntary workouts last spring and mandatory minicamp in June, although it's unclear whether he would sit out of training camp as well. The Lions as a whole begin training camp Wednesday, and the eight-year-pro would induce a fine of $40,000 a day if he decides to not attend. After being acquired in a trade with the Giants in October, Harrison racked up 50 total tackles, 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble over the last 10 games of the season. The 30-year-old currently has two seasons le... (More)3 hours
3.Brian Hill: Competing for No. 3 job (RotoWire) Hill will have the opportunity to claim the Falcons' No. 3 running back spot heading into 2019, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Analysis: The starting and backup roles are already locked in with Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith, respectively, after the departure of Tevin Coleman. Hill's competition for the No. 3 role comes primarily in the form of rookie Qadree Ollison and six-year-pro Kenjon Barner. Ollison ran for 1,213 yards on 6.3 YPC over 14 starts at Pitt in 2018, while Barner currently projects to have a heavy hand in the return game for Atlanta, which could be his ticket to a roster spot. Hill sa... (More)3 hours
4.Darren Sproles: Heading back to Philly (RotoWire) The Eagles and Sproles agreed to a one-year contract Friday, Dave Spadaro of the team's official site reports. Analysis: With less than a week remaining before the start of training camp, Philly welcomes back the 14-year veteran. Sproles has been limited to just nine appearances the past two seasons, the result of multiple lower-body injuries. Even if his body can't hold up to the rigors of regular work out of the backfield at age 36, his prowess as a punt returner should help him earn a role on the Eagles' 53-man roster. Such a gig may be his destiny anyway after the team brought in Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders (hamstring) via tra... (More)4 hours
5.Eagles bring back Sproles on one-year de... (Rotoworld) Eagles signed RB Darren Sproles to a one-year contract.5 hours
6.Michael Pierce: Placed on NFI list (RotoWire) The Ravens have placed Pierce on the non-football injury (NFI) list, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Baltimore has one of the toughest conditioning tests in the league and often utilizes the NFI for players that can't meet the standard at the beginning of training camp. Pierce drew some unwanted attention back in June when he was removed from the practice field at mandatory minicamp after showing up overweight. Listed at 6-foot, 340 pounds, he's one of the better run-stuffing tackles in the NFL and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The Ravens presumably want him to get in better shape before they... (More)5 hours
7.Chris Lacy placed on active/PUP list (Rotoworld) Lions placed WR Chris Lacy (leg) on the active/PUP list. Analysis: This comes as a surprise after Lacy got some first-team reps at minicamp. He can be activated at anytime, but this isn't a great start for a player on the roster bubble. Lacy is competing for Detroit's No. 5 receiver job.5 hours
8.Darren Sproles agrees to one-year deal to return to Eagles (FantasyPros) Running back Darren Sproles has agreed to a on-year contract to return to the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced on Twitter Friday. Analysis: Sproles had been pondering retirement after missing much of the last two seasons due to various injuries, namely a torn ACL that ended his 2017 season and a hamstring strain that delayed the start of his 2018 campaign by 11 weeks. The Eagles have maintained all along that they were interested in bring Sproles back, and he will join a crowded backfield in Philadelphia. The Eagles traded for running back Jordan Howard and drafted Miles Sanders this offseason, and they are returning Core... (More)5 hours
9.Eagles bring back Darren Sproles (FFToday) Eagles have agreed to terms with RB on a one-year contract. Analysis: As usual the Eagles have a plethora of running backs on their depth chart to make fantasy owners angry and now they've added one more. At 36 years old, it's hard to imagine Sproles having a big role in the offense but the Eagles do have room for him as a kick returner. has the talent and upside fantasy owners will want to target in the middle rounds.5 hours
10.Justin Watson: Getting slot reps (RotoWire) Watson took frequent slot reps during spring practices, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Analysis: New coach Bruce Arian previously discussed using Chris Godwin in the slot, which likely would leave Mike Evans (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman as the outside receivers in three-wide formations. Of course, Perriman's role in the offense is no sure thing, so the Bucs may pivot to a different plan if Watson or Scott Miller outplays the 2015 first-round pick this summer. Watson was a fifth-round selection in 2018, lifted by an impressive showing at his pro day -- 4.44 40, 124-inch broad jump -- after a prolific Ivy League career with 3,7... (More)5 hours
11.Jarvis Landry: Ready for camp (RotoWire) Landry (undisclosed) said he'll be a full participant at the outset of training camp, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports. Analysis: Landry resumed running routes in early July, working out with teammates in California the week before quarterback Baker Mayfield's wedding. The 26-year-old wide receiver declined to provide details on his injury, merely saying that he now feels better in time for training camp. Mayfield has a horde of useful pass catchers at his disposal, with Landry joined by Odell Beckham, Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins at wide receiver, as well as tight ends David Njoku and Demetrius Harris and runni...

12.Beane still a believer in LeSean McCoy (Rotoworld) Bills GM Brandon Beane feels LeSean McCoy has "enough left in the tank" for 2019. Analysis: "I think LeSean can still play," said Beane. "If not, we would have made the decision to move on." Coming off what was easily his worst season, the fading 31-year-old will face training camp competition from Frank Gore and third-round rookie Devin Singletary. McCoy is probably still the favorite to lead the backfield in touches over those two, though the 11th-year ball-carrier's fantasy arrow is clearly pointing down.6 hours
13.Austin Bryant among 4 Lions put on NFI (Rotoworld) Lions placed fourth-round DE Austin Bryant on the Active/NFI list. Analysis: The rookie's injury wasn't specified. DT John Atkins, DT P.J. Johnson and OT Ryan Pope will join him on the NFI list while WR Chris Lacy will open camp on Active/PUP. A national champion during his time at Clemson, Bryant earned third-team All-ACC recognition as a senior in 2018.6 hours
14.Dynasty | Mecole Hardman set to drop (Dynasty League Football) Due to the breaking news that Tyreek Hill will not be suspended for 2019, the value of rookie receiver Mecole Hardman is set to drop Analysis: Hardman was flying off the board in the top of the second round of rookie drafts, even appearing in the bottom of the first-round at times, but has been sliding of late as expectation set in that Hill's suspension would be minimal. Now that the NFL has released a statement that no suspension is forthcoming, Hardman's value will continue to slide. Drafted as, largely, an upside special teams tale... (More)6 hours
15.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids suspension (Dynasty League Football) The NFL released a statement stating Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill will NOT be suspended Analysis: There was no greater risk-on acquisition this off-season than that of Tyreek Hill, who was facing a lengthy suspension for domestic abuse. Regardless of your personal thoughts on the situation, the Chiefs and Hill owners dodged a huge bullet. Conversely, those who were willing to face the wind and risk a discounted acquisition have been richly rewarded, at least as it stands no... (More)7 hours
16.Watson prepping for slot by watching Fit... (Rotoworld) Justin Watson watched tape of Larry Fitzgerald to prepare him for playing the slot this season. Analysis: "Larry Fitzgerald is a guy I’ve always tried to take my game after," said the 2018 fifth-rounder. "To see him running the exact same routes I’m running, it’s been pretty awesome for me." Fitzgerald had some of his best seasons playing the slot under Bruce Arians and obviously Watson feels he can learn something from the future Hall of Famer. The Penn product played sparingly as a rookie and it would probably take an injury to slot receiver Chris Godwin for him ... (More)7 hours
17.Barwin still hoping to sign with Philade... (Rotoworld) Free agent DE Connor Barwin confirmed he's been in contact with Eagles GM Howie Roseman about a potential return. Analysis: Roseman said he wants to evaluate some of the team's young talent in training camp before "reconvening" in a couple weeks. Barwin is hoping to play as a 4-3 edge rusher this upcoming season. To prepare for this transition, the 32-year-old has bulked up to 270 pounds, well above the 255 he played at last year.7 hours
18.Todd Gurley: Feeling good before camp (RotoWire) Coach Sean McVay said Gurley (knee) is feeling great and has earned the right to scale back his offseason workload, NFL.com's Kevin Patra reports. "I think he's earned the right to be able to have the plan that we had this offseason," McVay said. "Can't wait to get him back going. I know he's ready to go and it's going to be fun for the Rams this year." Analysis: Gurley and McVay have maintained optimism all along, while the Rams' offseason actions hint at some level of concern, with the team matching a two-year, $3.3 million offer sheet for Malcolm Brown and later trading up to draft Darrell Henderson. Reports of arthritis in Gurley'... (More)8 hours
19.Fangio on Lock: 'He's not a quarterback ... (Rotoworld) In discussing second-round QB Drew Lock's development, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said, "He's not a quarterback yet." Analysis: It's a pretty blunt criticism of the rookie, though Lock always figured to be a work in progress. "He's a hard-throwing pitcher that doesn't know how to pitch yet," said Fangio after Friday's practice. Lock showed a huge arm during his four-year run at Mizzou but was inconsistent and struggled on routine touch throws. Surely the Broncos are hoping he'll take the mantle from Joe Flacco at some point this season, but obviously he's not close to m... (More)8 hours
20.Kurt Coleman: Reunites with McDermott (RotoWire) Coleman signed with Buffalo on Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: Veteran safety Rafael Bush has decided to retire, so as they often do, GM Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott first turned to their Carolina rolodex and Coleman will shuffle off to Buffalo, likely to serve in the same depth role Bush was pegged for. Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer are one of the top safety tandems in the league, though given Coleman's decent resume and familiarity with McDermott's defense, he could quickly move his way into an important depth role behind the starters.9 hours
21.Anthony Castonzo an extension candidate? (Rotoworld) Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan considers contract-year LT Anthony Castonzo an "obvious" extension candidate. Analysis: Indianapolis has a number of contracts coming off the books—Jacoby Brissett, Jack Doyle, Eric Ebron and Jabaal Sheard will enter free agency after 2019—but keeping Castonzo should be a top priority for the Colts. The 30-year-old left tackle seems keen on staying in Indy, noting an extension would be "great." "Obviously, any time you can be under contract and feeling good about it, that's always good," said Castonzo, who earned PFF's No. 19 grade among tackles last season. "I'm just... (More)9 hours
22.Rafael Bush: Opts for retirement (RotoWire) Bush has decided to retire from football, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: The veteran actually had a decent shot at making the team after doing a nice job as a depth signee in 2018, but he also had no chance of starting and the Bills have plenty of young guys to take his place, while a new veteran immediately enters the fold as the team signed Kurt Coleman on Friday. Bush has played in the league since 2011 and put together a nice career after going undrafted in 2010.9 hours
23.Tyreek Hill: Won't be suspended (RotoWire) The NFL does not plan to fine or suspend Hill after completing its investigation into allegations of child abuse, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The investigation didn't provide enough evidence to conclude that Hill violated the league's personal conduct policy. He's now eligible to participate in all team activities, including regular-season games. The NFL's statement acknowledges the possibility of another investigation, but only if the league receives new information from law enforcement. The Chiefs released their own statement saying that Hill will have his team suspension lifted to allow for participation at th... (More)9 hours
24.K.C. 'remains interested' in Tyreek exte... (Rotoworld) Yahoo's Terez Paylor reports the Chiefs "remain interested" in extending contract-year WR Tyreek Hill. Analysis: Now that the assault accusations are behind Hill -- for now -- the sides can try to concentrate on football and business matters. Hill is entering the final year of his rookie deal but obviously has a concerning off-field history, one that is, as Paylor puts it, going to require "both sides to work through some things." That likely means some language in Hill's potential extension that keeps the Chiefs safe should Hill slip up off the field. Prior to thi... (More)10 hours
25.Grant, Renfrow to compete as Raiders' sl... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Vic Tafur expects Ryan Grant and fifth-round rookie Hunter Renfrow to compete for the Raiders' slot receiver job. Analysis: Most have expected Renfrow to win the job, but Tafur notes "everyone seems to forget about Grant." Grant was pretty bad with Andrew Luck in Indianapolis last year, getting passed on the depth chart at times by Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal. But coach Jon Gruden's brother, Jay, loved Grant in Washington, and Gruden is a big fan of veterans. Whoever wins the job between Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams won't be of fantasy relevance.10 hours
26.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill avoids suspension (Dynasty League Football) Tyreek Hill will not be suspended by the league after the NFL was unable to find enough evidence to do so. Analysis: The NFL conducted a four month investigation of Hill after he was investigated by the police for allegedly breaking his son's arm. The NFL came to a similar conclusion as the judge who ruled over Hill's criminal proceedings, in that there just wasn't enough evidence to confirm Hill was guilty of violating the leagues' policies on proper conduct. The Chiefs organization has yet to issue a statement in regards to... (More)10 hours
27.Bills S Rafael Bush retires after 91 gam... (Rotoworld) Bills S Rafael Bush is retiring from the NFL after eight seasons. Analysis: Bush, 32, played for four teams, starting his career in Denver before spending five of his next six seasons with the Saints with a one-year stop with the Lions in between. He played last season in Buffalo and made 91 career appearances mostly as a third safety and special teams ace. The Bills signed S Kurt Coleman to take Bush's roster spot.11 hours
28.Bills ink S Kurt Coleman to one-year dea... (Rotoworld) Bills signed S Kurt Coleman, formerly of the Saints, to a one-year contract. Analysis: Coleman reunites with coach Sean McDermott, who he played for in Carolina. The Bills needed some safety help because third safety and special teams standout Rafael Bush decided to call it a career and retire. 31-year-old Coleman should see plenty of work on defense should he make the team.11 hours
29.Former Giants OL Petrus dies at age of 3... (Rotoworld) Former Giants OG Mitch Petrus died of heat stroke at the age of 32 on Thursday. Analysis: Petrus spent the day working outside for the family business in Lonoke County, Arkansas. So unfortunate and a reminder to not ignore the signs of heat exhaustion before it gets too late. Petrus was a fifth-round pick of the Giants in 2010 and won a Super Bowl with the team in 2011 before being cut in 2012 and then spending time with the Patriots and Titans before falling out of the league. Our thoughts are with Petrus and his loved ones.12 hours
30.NFL won't suspend Tyreek Hill; free to p... (Rotoworld) The NFL announced it will not suspend Tyreek Hill, who was accused of assaulting his son earlier in the offseason. Analysis: The NFL conducted a four-month investigation on the matter and determined there was insufficient evidence that Hill violated the personal-conduct policy. When news of this matter initially broke months ago, things looked extremely troubling for Hill. But by the end of it, cracks in the case began to split open, and it appeared Hill genuinely might have been being set up by his ex-fiance. Hill is now free to report to camp and go about his normal routine. For fa... (More)12 hours
31.Tyreek Hill will not face suspension (FantasyPros) Per Ian Rapoport and James Palmer, the NFL does not plan to suspend Tyreek Hill for his alleged involvement in a child abuse incident. Analysis: The unexpected news wraps up what has been a months-long saga of accusations and conflicting information. Hill was never charged for involvement in his son's broken arm, though disturbing audio of he and his fiancée discussing the child was released. Hill was involved in a domestic abuse incident in college with his then-pregnant girlfriend, and it is a bit surprising that Hill will not face a suspension, given his history and the aggravating circumstances. Hill has not been allowed to... (More)12 hours
32.No suspension for Tyreek Hill (FFToday) NFL will not discipline Chiefs’ WR , who was accused of assaulting his son. League could not find evidence he did; it will leave open case if further evidence emerges, but Hill is free to report to camp, practice and play this season. Analysis: From the league - "based on the evidence presently available the NFL cannot concluded that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy." After the initial rush to judgement, we got a sense over the last few weeks that the potential suspension was going to be 0-4 games. Hill hasn't been vindicated, but he is allowed to resume activities with the team. Hill remains a top end WR1 as long as h... (More)12 hours
33.Marquise Brown: Uncertain for Week 1 (RotoWire) Brown (foot) faces a difficult timeline to be ready for Week 1, Jeff Zrebic of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Coming back from Jan. 8 surgery on a Lisfranc injury, Brown still wasn't running full speed at June minicamp and was placed on the non-football injury list Thursday for the start of training camp. The Ravens haven't provided a useful update since mid-June, but that should change soon enough once coach John Harbaugh talks with the media. Given the state of their wideout depth chart, the Ravens likely intend for the first-round pick to handle a key role whenever he's cleared to play.13 hours
34.Emmanuel Sanders to be “full go” at practice within 2-3 weeks (FantasyPros) Emmanuel Sanders will reportedly be "full go" at practice in the coming weeks. Analysis: It's welcome news for Broncos fans, as it indicates Sanders is likely to be on the field for Week 1. His quick recovery from a torn Achilles will likely limit the upside of young wideouts Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton, though Sanders has some WR3 appeal if healthy.14 hours
35.Marquise Brown placed on non-football injury list, progressing well (FantasyPros) Marquise Brown (foot) was placed on the non-football injury list. He is progressing well and should be back on the field in a few weeks. Analysis: Brown missed the entire pre-draft process due to his recovery from January surgery to address a Lisfranc injury. It was reported previously that the Ravens would hope to have him by training camp. Brown's status for the preseason is up in the air until he's cleared to take the practice field. It's possible this issue could force him to miss the entire preseason, but he could be ready by Week 1.1 day
36.Broncos bring back RB David Williams (Rotoworld) Broncos re-signed RB David Williams. Analysis: The No. 226 overall pick of last year's draft by the Broncos, Williams ended up spending most of the year with the Jags. He was cut by Jacksonville in May. Williams is facing long odds of cracking the 53-man roster in the Broncos' deep backfield.1 day
37.Torry McTyer: Participates in offseason program (RotoWire) McTyer (concussion) participated in Miami's June minicamp, Allen Eyestone of The Palm Beach Post reports. Analysis: McTyer had been dealing with concussion issues since December. The 24-year-old missed only one game last season -- Week 11 against the Colts -- en route to recording 30 tackles (22 solo) and three pass breakups over 347 and 152 snaps on defense and special teams, respectively.1 day
38.Rayshawn Jenkins: Will compete for starting FS spot (RotoWire) Jenkins will likely see competition from Jaylen Watkins and Nasir Adderley for the Chargers' starting free safety spot, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. Analysis: Jenkins was originally poised for the starting role after Jahleel Addae was released in early March and Derwin James slid over to strong safety, but the emergence of Jaylen Watkins (knee) and the selection of Nasir Adderley (undisclosed) in the second round of the 2019 Draft have muddied those waters. Jenkins enjoyed a starting gig in the Chargers' two playoff games last season, seeing the field for all but two defensive snaps while racking up 13 total tac... (More)1 day
39.Xavier Rhodes: Participates in offseason practice (RotoWire) Rhodes (groin) participated in the Vikings' June minicamp, Eric Smith of the team's official site reports. Analysis: This groin issue forced Rhodes to miss the 2018 finale against Chicago. It was just the latest of a laundry list of injuries he sustained last season, including ankle and foot problems as well as two separate hamstring issues. Regardless, Rhodes only missed two contests last season and racked up 47 tackles (41 solo), seven pass breakups and an interception.1 day
40.Eric Kendricks: Participates in offseason program (RotoWire) Kendricks (hamstring) participated in Minnesota's June minicamp, Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site reports. Analysis: Kendricks sustained the hamstring injury Week 15 against Miami and was forced to sit out the final two games of the season. Regardless, the 27-year-old was still able to pile up 108 total tackles, seven pass breakups, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 2018.1 day
41.Limited touches for Jalen Richard in 2019? (FFToday) Jon Gruden said reminds the coach of Charlie Garner and is deserving of a bigger role. And then he drafts in the first round to be a three-down back. Richard will probably split backup carries with and will lose a good chunk of those 68 catches last year to Jacobs. Analysis: Richard was one of the fantasy's biggest surprises in 2018 despite scoring only one touchdown, as he caught 68 of his 81 targets on a team that played from behind a ton. Unfortunately for him, Jacobs profiles as a solid early-down back who is quite gifted in the passing game. It wouldn't be surprising if Richard see his target cut almost in half this season, barr... (More)1 day
42.Todd Davis out 3-4 wks with partial calf... (Rotoworld) Broncos ILB Todd Davis will be sidelined 3-4 weeks after suffering a "partial" calf tear in Thursday's practice. Analysis: Much was made of Davis' Thursday injury — which occurred during the Broncos' first training camp session — but he has escaped with a minor issue. Headed into the second season of a three-year contract, Davis has been a starter since 2016. He played a career-high 841 snaps in 2018, registering half a sack, a pick and a defensive touchdown. He should be ready in plenty of time for Week 1.1 day
43.Dorian O'Daniel: Will proceed with special teams role (RotoWire) O'Daniel will likely continue to play a crucial role on the Chiefs' special team unit this season, Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star reports. Analysis: O'Daniel was on the field for over half of the special team's snaps in each game last season. The 24-year-old logged 292 snaps on special teams and 311 snaps on defense over 16 contests in his rookie season, recording 34 tackles (21 solo), a pass breakup and a fumble recovery. O'Daniel missed both of Kansas City's playoff games with an ankle injury, but that seems to be a long-forgotten issue.1 day
44.Marquise Brown: Debut at training camp delayed (RotoWire) The Ravens placed Brown (foot) on the non-football injury list, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Per Hensley, such a fate is reserved for those players that fail the conditioning test required to take part in training camp. Brown missed the entire pre-draft process due to his recovery from January surgery to address a Lisfranc injury, but he still displayed enough in college to be the first receiver picked in the 2019 draft. The sooner he begins working with second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson, the better, so Brown's status will remain of interest until he's cleared to take the practice field and later put on the pads ... (More)1 day
45.Marquise Brown (foot) 'progressing well' (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Marquise Brown (NFI, Lisfranc) is "progressing well and should be back on the field in a few weeks." Analysis: That doesn't tell us much. Brown is beginning camp on the active/NFI list after coach John Harbaugh said last month he hoped to have his first-round pick for the beginning of camp. It sounds like the kind of issue that could cost Brown the entire preseason. Week 1 still appears realistic, however.1 day
46.Demarcus Robinson: Tasked with replacing Conley (RotoWire) Robinson will be asked to replace Chris Conley in the Kansas City offense, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Robinson and Conley actually had similar pass-catching production last season, though the former played just 419 offensive snaps (40 percent) while the latter handled 802 (77 percent). Robinson's superior per-snap and per-target efficiency bodes well for continued growth, depending on what happens with Tyreek Hill (suspension) and rookie second-round pick Mecole Hardman. Kansas City's ideal scenario may feature Robinson in the No. 4 job again, but the question marks ahead of him -- including Sammy Watkins' injury h... (More)1 day
47.Emmanuel Sanders: Starts with individual drills (RotoWire) Sanders (Achilles) was limited to individual drills Thursday but should be a full go in practice within two or three weeks, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Less than eight months removed from suffering an Achilles tear, Sanders looked comfortable running routes and quickly changing direction during Denver's first practice of training camp. Video clips from non-contact sessions don't prove he's regained his explosiveness, but it does at least appear he's on the right track toward playing Week 1. The 32-year-old is the only player on Denver's roster with an 800-yard receiving campaign to his name, with the team otherwise ... (More)1 day
48.Carl Granderson placed on did not report... (Rotoworld) Saints placed DE Carl Granderson on the did not report list. Analysis: The UDFA was recently sentenced to six months in a Wyoming jail stemming from a sexual battery case. He is expected to miss the entire 2019 season. It's frankly surprising that Granderson has not been released.1 day
49.Marquise Brown begins camp on NFI list (Rotoworld) Ravens first-round WR Marquise Brown (Lisfranc) will open camp on the active/NFI list. Analysis: Coach John Harbaugh had said last month that he was "hopeful" Brown would be ready for camp. Brown has participated in individual drills but has yet to resume running at full speed. As of yet, there does not appear to be concern about Brown's Week 1 status. He went under the knife in February. The health question mark is yet another reason why Brown is not an appealing re-draft prospect despite his status as the No. 25 overall pick of the draft.1 day
50.Demarcus Robinson to play Chris Conley r... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Nate Taylor reports Demarcus Robinson will be asked to play the old Chris Conley role in the Chiefs' offense this season. Analysis: Now, Conley didn't blow up on the stat sheet by any means with his 32-334-5 receiving line on 9.2% of the Chiefs' targets, but he did play 74.7% of the snaps. He was on the field quite a bit, and Robinson could see a big uptick after playing just over 36% of the downs a year ago. Robinson and Patrick Mahomes have been working on their deep-ball and play-extending connection this offseason as Robinson heads into a contract year. Robinson wen... (More)1 day
51.Jalen Richard to lose 'good chunk' of ca... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Vic Tafur expects Jalen Richard to lose a "good chunk" of his receiving work to rookie Josh Jacobs. Analysis: As Tafur points out, Richard had been drawing Charlie Garner comparisons from coach Jon Gruden, but then Gruden went out and made Josh Jacobs the No. 24 overall pick of the draft before talking him up as a three-down back. Richard tied Jared Cook for the Raiders' 2018 team lead in receptions at 68, but even if Jacobs struggles, Richard's path to standalone fantasy value is looking dicey.1 day
52.Emmanuel Sanders expected to be full go ... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's James Palmer expects Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') to be "full go" in 2-3 weeks. Analysis: Sanders avoided the active/PUP list to begin camp but is still having his snaps rationed. Speaking Thursday, he said he could participate in 11-on-11 drills if he had to. It remains to be seen how much, if any, work Sanders gets in the preseason, but Week 1 is not in doubt.1 day
53.Phillip Lindsay practices without limita... (Rotoworld) Phillip Lindsay (wrist) practiced without limitations on the first day of Broncos camp. Analysis: As previously reported, Lindsay ran as the starter in 11-on-11 drills. The Royce Freeman hype has been thick this summer, but sophomore UDFA Lindsay remains the man at the top of the depth chart.1 day
54.Todd Davis: Suffers calf injury (RotoWire) Davis is slated to undergo an MRI on his calf, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The linebacker limped off the field on the first day of training camp practice Thursday, but initial reports suggest that Davis merely tweaked his calf. His absence from practice should free up first-team reps for Joseph Jones or Keishawn Bierria.1 day
55.Phillip Lindsay: No limitations at practice (RotoWire) Coach Vic Fangio relayed after practice Thursday that Lindsay (wrist) doesn't have any limitations, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports. Analysis: Per the report, Fangio liked what he saw from Lindsay on the first day of Broncos training camp. Given that the running back is bouncing back from a wrist injury, there's no concern regarding the wheels that propelled him (as a rookie) to 192 carries for 1,037 yards and nine TDs to go along with 35 catches for 241 yards and a receiving score in 2018. It's been noted that Lindsay may be eased into practices as training camp proceeds, but barring any setbacks, Denver's top back should be wel... (More)1 day
56.Todd Davis carted off at Broncos practice (FantasyPros) Broncos starting linebacker Todd Davis was carted off the field after suffering an apparent leg injury on the team's first day of training camp. Analysis: NFL Media's James Palmer reported that Davis injured his calf and will have an MRI. The initial feeling, though, is that the injury is not serious. Davis started all 16 games last season. He recorded 114 tackles, 0.5 sack, and one interception.1 day
57.Darius Slay: Working toward deal (RotoWire) Agent Drew Rosenhaus will meet with the Lions this week to discuss new contracts for Slay and defensive tackle Damon Harrison, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: Both players skipped mandatory minicamp in June and aren't expected to report for the start of training camp without new deals. The Lions are in a tricky position, as they probably don't love the precedent of renegotiating contracts that have two seasons remaining, but also can't like the prospect of playing without their two most important defenders. Slay averaged 15.2 games (all starts), 53.4 tackles (46.6 solo), 17.2 pass deflections and 3.4 intercep... (More)1 day
58.Avonte Maddox could be an every-down pla... (Rotoworld) PhillyVoice's Jimmy Kempski guesses Eagles CB Avonte Maddox will be an every-down player this season. Analysis: Maddox played relatively well as a rookie, and Kempski writes "he was one of the best players on the field" during the offseason program. Assuming they are healthy, Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills should have roles, but Kempski believes Maddox has shown well enough to play in base packages in addition to his slot role. Rasul Douglas and Sidney Jones are also options in Philly's deep corner group.1 day
59.Jalen Mills unlikely to be ready for cam... (Rotoworld) PhillyVoice's Jimmy Kempski believes it is unlikely Eagles CB Jalen Mills (foot) is ready for the start of training camp. Analysis: Mills injured his foot late last October before eventually landing on injured reserve. He did not participate in the offseason program, and Kempski reports Mills was not even working to the side with other injured players. With Ronald Darby recovering from an ACL tear, the Eagles have injury questions atop the depth chart.1 day
60.Damon Harrison's agent meeting with Lion... (Rotoworld) The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reports Damon Harrison's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will meet with the Lions this week.1 day
61.Slay's agent meeting with Lions this wee... (Rotoworld) The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reports Darius Slay's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will meet with the Lions this week. Analysis: Rosenhaus also represents Damon Harrison, who also skipped the offseason program. Slay still has two years left on his deal, so it is unlikely the Lions are willing to seriously negotiate. Perhaps a restructure with a bit more guaranteed cash could get the deal done. Slay is headed into his age-28 season.1 day
62.Elway is excited about quarterback situa... (Rotoworld) Broncos GM John Elway said he is excited about the quarterback situation. Analysis: The Broncos have struggled at quarterback since Peyton Manning's retirement, but Elway believes the arrivals of Joe Flacco and second-rounder Drew Lock may have changed their fortunes. "It's a hard position to fill," Elway said. "Hopefully with Joe we've got it solidified with Drew working under him." Elway added Flacco has earned the confidence of the rest of the roster. Perhaps that is true, but Flacco's recent history suggests he will be yet another disappointing option.1 day
63.Phillip Lindsay easing into practice (FantasyPros) Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is ready for the start of training camp but will be eased into practice. Analysis: Lindsay has stated he's a 100 percent recovered from the broken right wrist that ended his rookie season. It sounds like Lindsay will avoid the active/PUP list as the Broncos report to training camp. Royce Freeman will challenge Lindsay for carries on early downs, but Lindsay will have every opportunity to win the starting running back job. Lindsay should lead the team in carries and is conidered a high-ceiling RB2.1 day
64.Rob Gronkowski chances of returning at 40 percent (FantasyPros) Rob Gronkowski chances of returning to play for the Patriots this season is 40 percent, according a "source close to Rob Gronkowski" Analysis: Gronk is down 18 pounds this off-season and hasn't ruled out the possibility of returning at some point in the season. He is expected to at least sit out training camp and the preseason. If he does return, Gronkowski would need some time to get himself into football shape, and could make an impact mid-season. Gronk could miss playing enough to at least contemplate a comeback, but for now he is officially retired. Stay tuned.1 day
65.Randy Gregory to apply for reinstatement (FantasyPros) Randy Gregory who was suspended in February for violating the league's substance abuse policy, will apply for reinstatement this week. Analysis: Gregory was suspended in February for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Despite the suspension, Dallas signed him to a one-year extension through 2020. This suggests they are optimistic Gregory will return at some point this season. As of now, he is suspended indefinitely. Gregory finished with 25 tackles, six sacks, and two forced fumbles in 14 games for the Cowboys last season.1 day
66.Derrick Henry being talked up by new offensive coordinator (FantasyPros) Titans running back Derrick Henry, coming off of a season in which he rushed for 1,059 yards and 12 touchdowns on 215 carries, is being talked up by new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Smith said that the Titans plan to ride Henry. Analysis: Riding Henry can mean a number of things. From a business side, it can mean riding him into the ground because he is in the last year of his contract and they aren't concerned about his long-term health. Or, from a strictly strategic football perspective, it could mean that they are planning to run the offense through Henry. The good news for fantasy owners is that both of these essentia...

67.Emmanuel Sanders will avoid the PUP list to start camp (FantasyPros) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will not begin the year on the PUP list, according to general manager John Elway. Sanders is recovering from a torn Achilles for which he underwent surgery in December. Analysis: It is encouraging that the Broncos are optimistic about Sanders, but a torn Achilles is a significant injury, especially for a veteran wide receiver who relies on speed and agility. Monitor his status throughout training camp to see how he is progressing.1 day
68.Rodney Anderson likely to start the year on the PUP list (FantasyPros) Bengals rookie running back Rodney Anderson is likely to begin the year on the PUP list, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner on Twitter. Anderson is recovering from a torn ACL and broken leg suffered last September. Analysis: The Bengals are likely to be cautious with Anderson after he suffered such a serious injury last year, so this news should not be surprising. For his part, Anderson said that he hopes to be ready for training camp. He is worth a late stash in rookie-only drafts but does not offer much value in redraft leagues unless he can prove that he is healthy enough to contribute throughout the summer.2 days
69.Barber approaching every-down opportunit... (Rotoworld) PewterReport.com's Taylor Jenkins suspects Peyton Barber will have "close to" 45 targets this season. Analysis: His estimate is based on the idea Barber receives every-down treatment since Jacquizz Rodgers is no longer around to play off the bench. Assuming he makes it out of camp, that seems like an ideal down for Andre Ellington to take over second-year pro Ronald Jones. Whatever the outcome, the Bucs' backfield is clearly one to monitor closely in camp, as one will come away with major fantasy implications.2 days
70.River Cracraft: Benefits from Burbridge retirement (RotoWire) Cracraft's chances of making the active roster have increased with the retirement of Aaron Burbirdge, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports. Analysis: Burbridge, already familiar with offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello's scheme from their time together with the 49ers, was reportedly a sleeper in spring practices. After battling injuries throughout his career and now taking an early retirement, the depth chart shifts. Veteran Emmanuel Sanders and promising youngsters Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Tim Patrick seem to be locks. Assuming the Broncos keep at least five wide outs, Cracraft seems like the most likely fif... (More)2 days
71.Drew Lock agrees to terms with Broncos (FantasyPros) Rookie quarterback Drew Lock has agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos on the day that the team reports to training camp, according to ProFootballTalk. Analysis: With the current structure set up for rookie contracts, lengthy holdouts are more of a rarity, so it was expected all along that the Broncos and Lock would agree to a deal sooner rather than later. As it turns out, they agreed to a deal on the day the team reports to camp. Lock is expected to be the backup to starter Joe Flacco in 2019, but he is a high draft pick that the team is surely hoping will take that job before too long.2 days
72.Deion Jones: Inks four-year extension (RotoWire) Jones (foot) and the Falcons reached an agreement on a four-year, $57 million extension Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: When healthy, Jones has been highly productive through three seasons, averaging 129.3 tackles and 3.5 sacks per 16 games played. Last year, he was limited to six appearances due to a foot injury, which impacted his offseason practice reps. The Falcons open training camp Saturday, at which point his status will become more clear. No matter, the middle linebacker has been locked up for the foreseeable future.2 days
73.Falcons do 4-year, $57M deal with Deion ... (Rotoworld) Falcons signed MLB Deion Jones to a four-year, $57 million contract extension. Analysis: The deal includes an $11 million signing bonus with $25.8 million fully guaranteed. It's another win for Rosenhaus Sports, with Jones now the second-highest paid inside linebacker despite missing 10 games to injury last year. With Jones and Grady Jarrett locked up, Atlanta can now turn its attention to a new deal for Julio Jones.2 days
74.Rashard Robinson hit with 10 game suspen... (Rotoworld) NFL suspended free agent CB Rashard Robinson 10 games for violating the substance-abuse policy. Analysis: It's the second time he's been suspended under the policy. Robinson has value as a sub-package corner, but this obviously hurts his chances of signing. Any team that adds Robinson can stash him on the suspended list, so it's possible he resurfaces.2 days
75.Broncos get Drew Lock signed ahead of ca... (Rotoworld) Broncos signed second-round QB Drew Lock to a four-year, $7 million contract. Analysis: Lock was holding out for an above-slot signing bonus, but the Broncos didn't cave and got a deal done on the eve of training camp. This comes just a day after fellow second-rounder OG Dalton Risner signed. Joe Flacco is Denver's Week 1 starter, but Flacco's leash could be short if Lock can put together a strong preseason. It won't be surprising if Lock makes rookie year starts.2 days
76.Rodney Anderson likely headed for PUP li... (Rotoworld) Bengals sixth-round RB Rodney Anderson (knee) is likely to open the season on the reserve/PUP list. Analysis: Anderson tore his ACL two games into his junior season. He was expected to be ready for training camp, but that's not going to happen. Anderson will miss at least the first six games if he lands on PUP but it could allow the Bengals to stash him without using a roster spot. With Anderson sidelined, Trayveon Williams is the favorite for Cincy's No. 3 role.2 days
77.Von Miller: Aiming for higher snap snare (RotoWire) Miller wants to play 85-to-90 percent of Denver's defensive snaps, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Miller mentioned 20 sacks as a reasonable goal earlier this offseason, also noting that he eventually hopes to pass Bruce Smith for the all-time record (200). Both goals are realistic but far from likely, with Miller averaging 12.3 sacks and 15.0 games through the first eight seasons of his NFL career. He handled an 89.9 percent snap share back in 2012 when he had a career-high 18.5 sacks, but he's landed between 76 and 86 percent in each subsequent season (accounting for active games only). Of course, extra snaps won't be as... (More)2 days
78.Emmanuel Sanders: Won't start camp on PUP list (RotoWire) GM John Elway noted Wednesday that Sanders (Achilles) will not be placed on the Broncos' PUP list to start training camp, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: That said, because Sanders is bouncing back from December Achilles' surgery, the wideout will be "eased in" to practice over the next few weeks. That's something he previously has acknowledged, so while he won't be full-go out of the gate, there's still time for fantasy observers to gather intel on the 32-year-old's recovery prior to the heart of draft/auction season. The key thing to monitor will be how much, if at all, the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder's straight speed and exp... (More)2 days
79.Phillip Lindsay: Easing into practice (RotoWire) Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Lindsay (wrist) is ready for the start of training camp but will be eased into practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Lindsay expressed similar confidence Monday, noting that he's 100 percent recovered from the broken right wrist that ended his prolific rookie season after Week 16. His absence from offseason practices freed up extra first-team work for Royce Freeman, who now figures to challenge Lindsay for carries on early downs. The Broncos also still have Devontae Booker, but he may be phased out of the offense if Lindsay and Freeman display improved pass-game skills.2 days
80.Emmanuel Sanders avoids PUP list to open... (Rotoworld) Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') has avoided the active/PUP list to open Broncos training camp. Analysis: That's a huge positive in his recovery from a torn Achilles', but GM John Elway did say Sanders will be eased back into practice slowly. Still, this puts Sanders well on track to be back to 100% for Week 1 where he'll team with Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton to form the Broncos' receiving trio. Tim Patrick will be waiting in the wings should one of the three get hurt.2 days
81.Fangio confirms Lindsay (wrist) 'ready t... (Rotoworld) Speaking Wednesday, coach Vic Fangio confirmed Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is "ready to go" for the start of training camp. Analysis: Fangio added, "We'll ease him in." But it sounds like Lindsay avoids the active/PUP list to open camp as the Broncos are the first team to report for camp, which happened Wednesday. Lindsay will cede some first-team reps to Royce Freeman, but Lindsay will have every opportunity to regain firm control of his lead-back duties after a stellar rookie season. Lindsay should pace this backfield in carries and remains a high-ceiling RB2.2 days
82.Emmanuel Sanders will practice on limited basis (FFToday) Emmanuel Sanders will not go on PUP list. Will start practicing tomorrow on limited basis. Good sign. Analysis: The Broncos are reporting to training camp today and as expected, Sanders will begin working out on a limited basis, hoping to be active in team drills some time in August. Sanders is recovering from an Achilles injury raising red flags about his 2019 fantasy value. Sanders, Courtland Sutton and sit atop the Broncos wide receiver depth chart.2 days
83.Miles Boykin signs his rookie contract (Rotoworld) Ravens signed third-round WR Miles Boykin to a four-year contract. Analysis: Boykin (6’4/220) turned pro after a breakout redshirt junior year (59/872/8), averaging 14.8 yards per catch and leading the Irish in all receiving categories. His stock soared in Indy, blazing 4.42 with absurd vertical (43 ½") and broad (11’8") jumps, clocking the fastest three-cone time (6.77) of all wide receivers invited, and registering one of the highest SPARQ scores in Combine history. Gifted but underdeveloped with only one year of meaningful production, Boykin falls on the Devin Funchess-Vi... (More)2 days
84.Aaron Burbridge decides to call it a car... (Rotoworld) Broncos WR Aaron Burbridge is retiring from the NFL after three seasons. Analysis: Burbridge was a 2016 sixth-round pick of the 49ers who played in all 16 games as a rookie, catching 7-of-16 targets for 88 scoreless yards. He missed the following two seasons with injuries and is hanging up the cleats at 25 years old.2 days
85.Cards cut OT Harrison after assault char... (Rotoworld) Cardinals waived OT Desmond Harrison. Analysis: Harrison is facing charges of assault on a person by strangulation and assault on a female by a male in Greensboro, North Carolina. Police have issued a warrant for Harrison's arrest. Harrison started eight games for the Browns last year but was cut last month when he was late to minicamp. The Cardinals, along with a couple other teams, placed waiver claims on Harrison. He'll likely pass through waivers this time around with the off-field issue hanging over his head.2 days
86.Javon Wims: Could have role in offense (RotoWire) Wims looked good during offseason workouts and appears primed to compete for a role on offense, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports. Analysis: The 2018 seventh-round pick led the NFL with 227 receiving yards last preseason, earning a spot on Chicago's 53-man roster throughout the year. He was active for four contests, including a four-catch, 35-yard outing Week 17 against Minnesota. The path to a meaningful role in 2019 appears difficult after the Bears bolstered their wideout depth with the signing of Cordarrelle Patterson and drafting of Riley Ridley, but there is some chance for Wims to make a push toward the No. 4 spot... (More)2 days
87.Kamu Grugier-Hill: Challenging for three-down role (RotoWire) Grugier-Hill may challenge Zach Brown for playing time in nickel packages, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports. Analysis: Grugier-Hill, Brown and Nigel Bradham are expected to handle starting jobs, but only the latter is a lock to stay on the field for all three downs. Brown is coming in to replace Jordan Hicks, who signed with Arizona this offseason after averaging 58.8 defensive snaps and 7.6 tackles in 12 games for Philadelphia in 2018. Brown is viewed as a downgrade from Hicks in pass coverage, which gives Grugier-Hill a shot at an every-down job -- the type that could lead to IDP value.2 days
88.Nigel Bradham: Poised for three-down role (RotoWire) Bradham is expected to handle an every-down role, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports. Analysis: The Eagles swapped out Jordan Hicks for Zach Brown at middle linebacker this offseason, potentially freeing up a spot for Kamu Grugier-Hill in nickel packages. Either way, Bradham will continue to fill a three-down role after topping 900 defensive snaps in each of his first three seasons with the Eagles. The heavy workloads haven't led to first-rate IDP production, with Bradham averaging 95.7 tackles (65.7 solo) and 1.7 sacks per season in Philadelphia. Much of his value to the team comes from solid work in pass coverage.2 days
89.Quinn thinks Hooper can go to 'another l... (Rotoworld) Coach Dan Quinn believes contract-year TE Austin Hooper is "ready to go to another level" with his play in 2019.2 days
90.Ronald Jones to begin camp as No.2 RB (FFToday) is bigger. But will he be better? The Bucs running back had a disappointing rookie season, to put it mildly. The second-round pick from Southern Cal rushed for only 44 yards and one touchdown in 2018. Jones says he has added muscle and is up to 221 pounds from 208 pounds. Jones will begin training camp as the No. 2 running back behind , who led the team in rushing with 871 yards and five touchdowns. Analysis: After a dismal rookie season, some are predicting Jones will ascend to the lead back role in Tampa Bay now that a new coaching staff is in place. With pass protection and route running being areas of weakness, Jones will need to co... (More)2 days
91.Titans plan to 'ride' Henry in contract ... (Rotoworld) Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports new OC Arthur Smith said he intends to "ride" contract-year RB Derrick Henry this season. Analysis: Henry turned 25 in January and is obviously coming off a monster finish to last season when he rushed for 625 yards and eight touchdowns on 97 carries (6.44 YPC) across five December contests. Smith is a complete unknown as a coordinator, but the Titans would be wise to stick with what worked down the stretch in 2018. And that was an offense centered around Henry. He's being drafted as an RB2 in fantasy. We've been through thi... (More)3 days
92.Robert Ayers: Hangs up cleats (RotoWire) Ayers announced Tuesday via his personal twitter page that he's retiring from football. Analysis: Ayers wasn't on an NFL roster during the 2018 season, and is closing in on his 34th birthday next month. The Tennessee product still had a stellar career, however, racking up 246 tackles (178 solo) and 35 sacks in 105 games over eight seasons.3 days
93.Nick Bosa: Progressing nicely from injury (RotoWire) Bosa (hamstring) said Tuesday that he'll be ready to go come Week 1 of the regular season, Jessica Kleinschmidt of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: The 21-year-old was recently diaginosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain that was expected to sideline him until at least training camp. Bosa posted a photo of him resuming workouts and running on his personal instagram Tuesday, suggesting he's recovering nicely. The 49ers could be cautious with their prized No. 2 overall draft pick in April's draft to start camp, but expect Bosa to be out there in Week 1 against Tampa Bay.3 days
94.Jake Butt: Won't land on PUP list (RotoWire) Butt (knee) won't be placed on the physically unable to perform list this offseason, but will be eased into team activities, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Analysis: Butt has played in just three games since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, largely due to tearing his ACL of the third time in five years. The team reported earlier that the tight end was likely to be cleared to participate in training camp when it opens Thursday, and this news confirms that notion. A slow transition back into the fold should be expected for the Michigan product, but the 23-year-old could be fighting for a roster spot a... (More)3 days
95.Chris Maragos: Calling it quits (RotoWire) Maragos (knee) announced Tuesday via his personal twitter account that he's retiring from football. Analysis: Maragos just underwent his third knee surgery of his career in December to clean up a torn PCL he suffered in 2017, and the injury was most likely the cause for retirement. The 32-year-old has primarily served as a significant special teams contributor throughout his career.3 days
96.Emmanuel Sanders: Easing into camp (RotoWire) Sanders (Achilles) expects to ease into training camp, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. "I don't even know if I'll do the conditioning test [Wednesday]," Sanders said Tuesday. "As far as practice, I'm definitely not going to be going full-go from the jump." Analysis: Sanders has made impressive progress from a torn Achilles, which wiped out his ninth pro season on Dec. 5. To date, he's been running full speed since early May, and on June 7 he progressed to route running that included sharp cuts. Even with that behind him, Sanders seems to be taking a logical approach in the later stages of his recovery, increasing his workl... (More)3 days
97.Jimmy Garoppolo: Works on mechanics (RotoWire) Garoppolo (knee) has been working with noted QB throwing guru Tom House, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Garoppolo, who is bouncing back from a torn left ACL that he suffered last September, has plenty on his plate in terms or rehab and recovery, but the hope is that working with House can help improve the QB's mechanics heading into the 2019 campaign. Wagoner adds that Garoppolo told him Monday that he's hopeful in terms of being fully cleared to go at the start of training camp later this month. With that in mind, the 49ers' franchise signal caller indicated "I'm able to do pretty much everything now."3 days
98.Roc Thomas: Draws three-game suspension (RotoWire) Thomas has been suspended for three games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. Analysis: Thomas, who was sentenced to three years probation in May after pleading guilty to a felony charge of marijuana possession, can practice with the Vikings during training camp and play in the preseason, but he'll sit out the team's first three regular-season games before becoming eligible to return to the field Sept. 23. Thomas is in line to compete for a depth role in the Minnesota backfield (behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison) along with Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah.3 days
99.Robert Ayers retires after 10 years (Rotoworld) Ex-Bucs DE Robert Ayers has announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 years. Analysis: Cut by the Bucs following the 2017 season, Ayers could not find a new home for 2018. The No. 18 overall pick of the 2009 draft, Ayers notched four five-sack seasons, including a career-high 9.5 in 2015 for the Giants.3 days
100.Jonnu Smith: Week 1 status not yet clear (RotoWire) Smith (knee) hasn't practiced all offseason, which results in Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site being noncommittal about the tight end's Week 1 status. Analysis: Wyatt notes that coach Mike Vrabel "hasn't provided any insight on (Smith's) condition," though added clarity on that front could arrive once training camp commences. Smith's status is relevant considering that starting tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) is bouncing back from an injury of his own. It looks like Walker should be ready to go in time for the Titans' season opener, but if he misses any time in-season, Smith could enter the fantasy equation in deeper formats.3 days
