2 years agoSeattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) said he is expecting to be ready for training camp this summer but will listen to the team's medical staff. That might be an aggressive goal after Lockett broke his leg late last season. The 24-year-old managed 41 catches for 597 yards and one score in 15 games in 2016 and will only be attractive to those in deeper formats. He could struggle to make noise early on as he gets back into the swing of things.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Sheil Kapadia

2 years agoCarolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) is a full-go for offseason workouts and has been working out with the team. The star defender was diagnosed with his second known concussion in Week 11 last year and ended up missing the rest of the season. Despite playing in only 10 games in 2016, Kuechly still racked up 102 tackles, two sacks and an interception. He remains one of the best IDP linebackers in the game, but injury concerns should bring his price down some in 2017.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Panthers.com - Bill Voth

2 years agoThe Miami Dolphins have not started serious extension talks with wide receiver Jarvis Landry, according to a team source. However, Landry is not holding out of offseason workouts and has a good bond with head coach Adam Gase. Landry's 856 receiving yards from the slot position led all receivers in 2016. The 24-year-old has at least 84 catches in his first three NFL seasons, making him a stud in PPR leagues. He's also reached the 1,000-yard mark each of the last two years, but his touchdown totals continue to underwhelm -- he's never topped five touchdowns in a single season and only has eight scores in the last two years.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Miami Herald - Barry Jackson

2 years agoBaltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who wasn't able to take part in offseason workouts last year while rehabbing from knee surgery, is fully healthy and participating in the offseason program this year. Safety Eric Weddle said he sees no "hiccup" in Flacco's stride. The 32-year-old veteran quarterback thinks his inconsistent play in 2016 may have been the result of a late start because of his injury. Flacco did reach the 4,000-yard mark but has just 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He remains a better real-life QB than fantasy one, especially with Baltimore lacking playmakers in the passing game with the losses of Steve Smith (retirement) and Kamar Aiken (free agency).--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Baltimore Sun - Jeff Zrebiec

2 years agoNew York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said he had offseason surgery to fix four separate injuries -- two in his abdomen and two in his groin. Pierre-Paul said he's "OK" now. JPP played in only 12 games last year due to injury but racked up 53 tackles and seven sacks in that time. A healthy return in 2017 will only strengthen the Giants' defensive front.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: SNY - Ralph Vacchiano

2 years agoAtlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (foot) is a limited participant in the team's offseason program this week. Head coach Dan Quinn said the expectation is that Jones will be full-go by the middle of the summer. The 28-year-old dealt with toe and foot issues late last season but still managed 1,409 yards on 83 catches for six touchdowns in 14 games. Assuming everything checks out with his foot in training camp, Jones makes a case to be one of the first receivers off the board in the first round of fantasy drafts yet again.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - Matt Winkeljohn

2 years agoDetroit Lions wide receiver Jace Billingsley has emerged as a player to watch this offseason as the No. 3 receiver behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Tate dubbed Billingsley "White Thunder" during offseason workouts and said the young wideout reminds him of himself. Billingsley led the Lions last preseason with 12 catches for 146 yards. Because of his size (5-foot-9), he'll likely stick in the slot position. With Anquan Boldin a free agent, Detroit will need another receiver to step up and handle more opportunities, and it looks like Billingsley may be the favorite for that spot right now. Consider him an early deep sleeper.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Detroit Free Press - Dave Birkett
Share:
2 years agoFree-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to continue playing in 2017 and said he continues to work out while waiting for his next opportunity. The veteran gunslinger hasn't had any formal offers yet after a miserable 2016 season for the Jets in which he was benched. Fitz won't land a starting gig for any team at this point, but he could serve as a valuable backup and mentor in the right situation, and he's open to that possibility. Fitzpatrick's days as a fantasy sleeper are long gone.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: New York Daily News - Gary Myers
Share:
2 years agoCleveland Browns quarterback Cody Kessler, who is currently No. 1 on the quarterback depth chart, focused on improving his deep ball in the offseason. He worked with quarterbacks coach Tom House on his arm strength and deep-ball accuracy. Cleveland will no doubt bring in a quarterback from this year's draft to compete for the starting job alongside Kessler and Brock Osweiler. Even if Kessler somehow wins the job in training camp, the former third-round pick will be an uninteresting fantasy backup choice.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Akron Beacon Journal - Nate Ulrich
Share:
2 years agoNew England Patriots running back James White agreed on a three-year contract extension Tuesday, according to a league source. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed. The 25-year-old caught a whopping 14 passes in the Super Bowl and figures to once again be a big part of the team's passing game in what will be a crowded backfield featuring Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee. White had just 39 carries in 2016 but a career-high 60 receptions for 551 yards and five touchdowns. He's worth consideration as a late-round pick in PPR formats, but his unpredictable usage will make him tough to rely on.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Adam Schefter
Share:
2 years agoCleveland Browns quarterback Brock Osweiler received praise from executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown, and Brown indicated that Osweiler has a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job this year. If Cleveland winds up without a quarterback they really covet in the draft, Osweiler could win the job over Cody Kessler. Osweiler proved to be a massive free-agent bust in Houston in 2016 with 2,957 yards (59 completion percentage), 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 15 games. Whoever is starting in Cleveland in 2017 is nothing more than a weak fantasy backup.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com - Marc Sessler

2 years agoOakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is healed enough from his broken right fibula he suffered late last season to be a full participant in the team's offseason training program. "I feel great," Carr said. "I've been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything." The young quarterback threw for 3,937 yards (63.7 completion percentage), 28 touchdowns and only six interceptions. Barring any setbacks over the summer, Carr should be 100 percent healthy and ready to go for Week 1. He's a surefire QB with plenty of upside still.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Paul Gutierrez

2 years agoGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who cut out golf in the offseason, said he hit his target weight -- under 220 pounds -- when reporting for the first day of offseason workouts. Rodgers says he "feels great" and maintained his diet and exercise routine from last year. The 33-year-old quarterback returned to the 4,000-yard passing mark in 2016 with a 65.7 completion percentage, 40 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. He's still an elite QB1 folks.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Rob Demovsky

2 years agoNew England Patriots restricted free-agent cornerback Malcolm Butler signed his tender Tuesday, according to a source. However, a trade is still a possibility. The Saints may wind up trading for Butler around the time of the draft. Even if Butler is dealt, New England's secondary was upgraded in the offseason with the signing of Stephon Gilmore. Butler, 27, had 63 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and four interceptions in 2016.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Boston - Field Yates
Share:
2 years agoThe Buffalo Bills' first indication is that they are unlikely to match the New England Patriots' offer sheet for restricted free-agent running back Mike Gillislee, according to a source. It'll be the second straight year the Pats have poached a restricted free agent from Buffalo after landing receiver Chris Hogan in 2016. It also likely signals the end of LeGarrette Blount's time in New England, as Gillislee would be expected to take over the short-yardage/goal-line work for the Pats. While Gillislee was a talented handcuff to LeSean McCoy last year, he'll strictly be touchdown-dependent for fantasy owners with the Patriots. Back in Buffalo, Jonathan Williams may be the immediate backup to McCoy now, but Buffalo should address the position in the draft, too.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Boston Herald - Jeff Howe
