6/11:2009 first round running back Donald Brown has had a beleaguered NFL career thus far. From the infamous Peyton Manning line “Damn it, Donald!”, to a decreasing role the last few years, not many would project Brown to be on the fantasy radar in standard leagues this season. That perspective could certainly change with Brown landing in New England. The Pats running back situation is far from bad, but it isn’t totally stable either. LaGarrette Blount sits atop the depth chart, but isn’t even close to the pass-catcher Brown is. Dion Lewis does catch passes very well, but his potential effectiveness is unknown as he’s returning from a torn ACL. Thus, to the naked eye it would seem that Brown will have every opportunity to make a dent in the Pats’ backfield. He’s a name to watch this summer.--John Smith
6/11:Jarvis Landry spent part of the offseason catching passes with a star-studded group of receivers including Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. Unfortunately, not many of those passes may have been catchable as they were being thrown by Geno Smith. Thankfully Landry will be switching back to Ryan Tannehill soon. On a more serious note, Landry could be in line for a huge season after 2015’s breakout. A PPR monster, Landry caught 110 balls for 1,157 yards and four scores on 166 targets (sixth-most targets in the NFL). In a more uptempo offense under new Head Coach and offensive guru Adam Gase, we could see Landry’s statistics explode. Currently ranked as roughly the 18th WR to come off the board in PPR formats, its easy to envision him streaking up draft rankings.--John Smith
6/11:The Steelers are expecting second-year receiver Sammie Coates to have a big year. The young wideout will be called on to attempt to replace the production of the suspended Martavius Bryant and offensive coordinator Todd Haley recently praised Coates' conditioning and off-season work ethic. Coates is shaping up as a sleeper for the upcoming 2016 season as he will be playing in what should be one of the top offensive units in the league. He's a definite dynasty league stash and is worth a late-round pick in redraft leagues.--Matt Terelle - RotoballerSource: ESPN.com
6/11:Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson is really excited about the potential that Terrelle Pryor can bring to what was one of the weakest receiver corps in the league last year. Pryor is an athletic marvel who is still learning the position after converting from quarterback just a year ago. He doesn't need to be drafted in fantasy drafts, but he should be monitored. He's worth picking up in dynasty leagues if you have the roster space as he should get every opportunity to produce this upcoming season.--Matt Terelle - RotoballerSource: NFL.com
6/11:Rookie Tyler Boyd could end up being Andy Dalton's number two option in the passing game depending on how long it takes tight end Tyler Eifert to return from ankle surgery. Expect the majority of targets to go to A.J. Green, but Boyd could end up second in line. Boyd is thought to be quite versatile and should be able to play outside or in the slot in his rookie year. He could provide excellent value in the late rounds on draft day as he has the chance to be one of 2016's most productive rookie wideouts.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
6/10:In 2015, the Chicago Bears drafted Kevin White out of the University of West Virginia to help fill the void left by a departing Brandon Marshall. On paper, White looked to be a good fit with the Bears. Unfortunately, the world would have to wait a year toread more...
6/10:Rookie Laquon Treadwell is working hard at the Minnesota Vikings' organized team activities. Head coach Mike Zimmer has been known to give rookies adequate playing time if they deserve it, and Treadwell is reportedly doing all that he can toread more...
6/10:Allen Hurns wasn't drafted coming out of the University of Miami two years ago. Now, he is set to earn $40 million over four years after having his contract extended last week. Hurns didn't just prove to be a reliable receiver, he ranked in the top 15 among all WR for fantasy purposes last season. He collected 1,031 yards and 10 TD, making him the youngest undrafted player in NFL history to break the 1,000 YD/10 TD marks. With Allen Robinson and Blake Bortles all entering their third year as well, the Jags look to continue their climb in the offensive rankings. All three should be superior options this season, but Hurns may not be as criminally undervalued as he was in drafts last year. He still makes a great mid-round target as a high-end WR2.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
6/10:The Patriots waived TE Michael Williams on Friday, two days after tearing his ACL at minicamp. The move is likely a precursor to placing Williams on Injured Reserve, which will occur on Monday in the probable event he isn’t claimed by another team. Last August, the Pats traded a 2017 seventh round pick to Detroit for Williams. In his first season in New England, he caught three passes for 26 yards in 15 games. It’s a tough break for Williams, although he had a long way to climb before reaching any kind of fantasy relevance behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett. Best of luck to Williams during the recovery process.--John Smith
6/10:2015 first-round receiver DeVante Parker didn’t participate in the final week of Dolphins OTA’s due to an unknown ailment. New Miami Head Coach Adam Gase told reporters the Fins were simply being cautious with the talented second-year player. Perhaps even more comforting, Gase also noted that the injury isn’t a recurrence of Parker’s nagging left foot issues. In his rookie season, Parker caught 26 passes on 50 targets for 494 yards and three touchdowns. In Miami’s new uptempo offensive scheme, Parker has a real chance at breaking out in his sophomore season. Here’s to hoping whatever has Parker hobbled is truly minor, and he’s fully prepared for training camp. Check back here for updates.--John Smith
6/10:Yesterday, it was Chris Hogan. Today, it’s fourth-round rookie Malcolm Mitchell. During 11-on-11 drills on the final day of minicamp, Mitchell impressed teammates by reeling in a leaping one-handed grab for a touchdown on Thursday. Much like Chris Hogan-praise, this is nothing more than a footnote for now. Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, and Julian Edelman still didn’t practice, and Mitchell obviously wasn’t facing the same type of coverage he’ll see on Sundays. Like any Pats offensive skill player he’s worth keeping an eye on this summer, especially for dynasty leagues, but until we see more out of Mitchell all the recent praise should be taken with a grain of salt.--John Smith
6/10:Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer put together the best season of his 12-year NFL career in 2015-16, setting new career highs in passing yards (4,671) and touchdowns (35). The 36-year-old veteran remains in an ideal situation under head coach Bruce Arians. The Cardinals' offense, which features dynamic young players at running back (David Johnson) and wide receiver (John Brown, Michael Floyd), is one of the NFL's best. That doesn't even include veteran Larry Fitzgerald, who continues to defy Father Time at age 32. Palmer could post similar numbers to last season, but the reality is that it's fair to expect some natural regression. Palmer is still a worthy QB1, but totals closer to 4,200 yards and 30 touchdowns seem more reasonable.--Andrew C. Lovell - RotoBaller
6/10:Russell Wilson will be one of the first quarterbacks off the board in most fantasy drafts, but the Seattle Seahawks signal caller might still be undervalued. If Wilson puts together anything close to the stretch he had over the 2015 regular season's final seven weeks (24 touchdowns, one interception) over a full season, he'll be a favorite for NFL MVP. Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Tyler Lockett form an under-appreciated but dynamic wide receiver trio, and the team expects tight end Jimmy Graham (patellar) back in time for the start of the season. Factor in Wilson's rushing ability, and he's one of the more appealing options at quarterback. He's a no-doubt choice as a QB1, but there is upside for Wilson to blossom into a legitimate MVP candidate.--Andrew C. Lovell - RotoBaller
6/10:Dorial Green-Beckham's talent has never been in question. His work ethic, motivation, and overall productivity have and remain so entering 2016. With the addition of Rishard Matthews and return of talented, young receivers Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright, DGB isn't assured a starting job in Tennessee. Green-Beckham hauled in 32 catches for 542 yards and four touchdowns in 2015, but also disappeared for stretches. He posted five games with no receptions and only surpassed 75 yards three times all season. His ceiling remains high, but at this point he cannot be trusted as anything more than a flyer, not higher than a WR3 in deep leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
6/10:Rookies Will Fuller and Braxton Miller will both be vying to be a big part of the Texans offense in 2016. With Pro Bowl WR DeAndre Hopkins on the starting line, whoever steps up to earn playing time has a chance to see lighter coverage and big play potential. Fuller boasts a 4.32 40-yard dash, with Miller slightly slower at 4.33. Only oft-injured Cecil Shorts and inexperienced Keith Mumphery stand in the way of a starting gig for either rookie. The Texans' new look offense includes Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller in the backfield. The passing game should be able to increase over last year's 18th ranked attack, averaging 239 passing YPG. Fuller, a first-round pick, would seem to be the favorite, but don't count out the athletic Miller as well. Those who play MFL 10 leagues might consider Miller in the later rounds.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
