1 day agoHouston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas recently suggested that Houston will use a committee approach at tight end with Thomas, Jordan Akins, and rookie Kahale Warring, but Thomas is expected to be the leader of that committee and the player most likely to be a weapon in Houston's passing game. Thomas caught four touchdowns last season, but he saw his snap percentage fade as the season went along. Even if Thomas gets the most snaps, quarterback Deshaun Watson doesn't target tight ends at a rate that would make Thomas a sustainable fantasy starter.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Houston Chronicle - Aaron Wilson
1 day agoDenver Broncos rookie wide receiver Trinity Benson worked with the team's first-team offense in 11-on-11 drills on Saturday, a move that suggests the speedy slot receiver could make Denver's roster. The East Central University graduate has used in both the receiving and the run game in college, and with the depth in Denver's receiving corps unsettled after Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton, there may be room for Benson to sneak up and claim some snaps. We'll have to see how his preseason performances look, but the Broncos coaching staff clearly likes what they're seeing from the undrafted free agent.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: 9 News - Mike Klis
2 days agoThe battle to be the backup quarterback rages this offseason for the Seattle Seahawks, but Geno Smith is getting a lot of compliments from the coaching staff so far. Head coach Pete Carroll made specific mention of Smith's comfort with handling the huddle and making adjustments at the line, and he compared Smith's savvy to that of longtime backup Tarvaris Jackson. That's high praise from the coach since it's incredibly rare that a backup QB is held in high a regard as Jackson was, but Smith has to win his competition with Paxton Lynch first. Lynch signed with Seattle early in the offseason, but the coaching staff hasn't made any indications about who is winning the job yet. For now, it looks to be a battle that will go on throughout all of training camp.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: John Boyle
2 days agoSeattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaron Brown filled a red-zone niche for the team last year, but head coach Pete Carroll seems to already be scheming for him in 2019. Carroll told reporters that he felt the team had "underused" him last season and expects to get more out of his this year. Brown only caught 14 passes last year, five for touchdowns, but he's still incredibly fast. With D.K. Metcalf in the mix, Brown could see more utilization in a dual deep threat type of set, and fantasy owners shouldn't forget that Russell Wilson is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the league on deep balls. If Carroll is telling the truth about the team's plans, Brown could be a surprise star in Seattle.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: John Boyle
2 days agoSeattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore burst onto the scene in 2018 by making a host of acrobatic, highlight-reel catches to announce his presence. Unfortunately, he slowed down with time, and it turned out that his acrobatics covered up for the fact that he struggled to get open on a consistent basis. His highs have been outstanding and stick in peoples' minds, but he also fades into the background during most games. Entering camp in 2019, Moore will be competing against Jaron Brown and D.K. Metcalf to try to lock up the No. 2 spot in the wide receiver pecking order. His competition is talented, but all three receivers have their warts. If Moore can improve his ability to get separation on a regular basis, he could easily run away from the others (metaphorically speaking).--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: John Boyle
2 days agoThe Seattle Seahawks see big things in wide receiver Tyler Lockett, even if he's not very large. With the retirement of their steady No. 1 receiver Doug Baldwin over the offseason, Seattle will be trying to fill big shoes in the passing game. It all begins with Lockett. Lockett had a breakout season in 2018 as Baldwin dealt with injuries that would eventually end his career, and it looks like the torch can be passed in most ways. Both are small, quick receivers who run excellent routes and have steady hands, so the feel of the offense shouldn't change dramatically. The real question will be how much use Lockett will get, even if he is the go-to guy. Seattle is notorious for spreading the ball around and not letting Russell Wilson do too much of the work, but there's no clear-cut No. 2 receiver behind Lockett, so he will likely see the vast majority of the looks, especially on third down.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: John Boyle
2 days agoAfter missing all of the 2018 season with a torn ACL tear, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019 season. But Jaguars.com writer John Oehser says that Lee being in the team's starting lineup in Week 1 is a "longshot," as he'll need to spend most of training camp and the preseason getting up to speed, and while Lee will likely be available Week 1, the team will likely bring him along slowly. Lee and Dede Westbrook are the receivers to own in Jacksonville, but there's a lot of uncertainty in this crowded receiving corps, making Lee a fairly risky fantasy option.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Jaguars.com - John Oehser
2 days agoKansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill could be on his way out of KC, according to Mike Florio. Hill has been cleared of his suspension, but the team is not close to an extension with Hill. The Chiefs have some depth at wide receiver, so losing Hill would not be the end of the world. There's a possibility of a tag-and-trade next offseason, but Hill will likely remain in Kansas City this upcoming season. The two sides may continue to talk extension, but it doesn't sound like either side is close at all.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports
3 days agoWith the onslaught of new talent brought in by the Oakland Raiders this offseason, running back Jalen Richard could find more success despite being further down the list of the team’s top offensive weapons. Richard will primarily work once again as a pass-catching back, limiting his playing time to third downs and spelling off rookie Josh Jacobs. In 2018, Richard finished seventh among running backs in receptions (68) and targets (81) while picking up 607 receiving yards in the process. With the more dynamic players on the offense creating more space for him to maneuver, he could be the right change-of-pace back the team needs in certain scenarios especially with his proven chemistry with quarterback Derek Carr. Richard is a player to watch as a potential handcuff to Jacobs, and could find value in PPR leagues if he finds more work in the red zone.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: justblogbaby.com
3 days agoJoining the new offensive formula for the Oakland Raiders this season, wide receiver Hunter Renfrow hopes to be a part of it in a big way in 2019. The fifth-round rookie has his eyes on the job for the team’s starting slot receiver, sandwiched on the field between fellow newcomers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams. Battling Ryan Grant and JJ Nelson for the position, Renfrow has a dynamic skill set that forced GM Mike Mayock to trade up for him at this year’s draft. His 5’10” frame, reliable hands, and excellent route-running abilities give him the proper skill set, but he’ll have to prove he’s the right man for the job during training camp and the preseason. Renfrow is a name to watch out for in the buildup to the regular season and is solely on the dynasty league radar until we know more about his role going forward.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Clutch points.com
3 days agoArizona Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray was impressive during offseason workouts, and he is getting ready for his first training camp with practice starting July 25. He is expected to get the starting nod in Week 1 ahead of veteran journeyman Brett Hundley, and he has impressed early on. "I was impressed with how smart he is, how determined he is. His future is extremely bright," future Hall of Fame wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said after the rookie's minicamp showing. Murray is already moving up the pre-draft cheat sheets, and he is considered a borderline low-end QB1 or top-end QB2 in most fantasy formats, while having considerably higher value in long-term dynasty formats.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: MMQB - Robert Klemko
3 days agoArizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been impressed by the quick learning by rookie quarterback Kyler Murray and his familiarity with the offense. "I know him running (Oklahoma head coach) Lincoln Riley's offense is very similar to what Coach Kliff (Kingsbury) runs," Fitzgerald says, "but on the first day he's calling audibles and getting us in plays that are favorable to the offense. So I was really impressed by his ability to take a leadership position first day at the offense." Fitzgerald also remarked that the Arizona offense will be much faster in tempo, with players expected to process pre-snap adjustments considerably faster. Fitzgerald is getting a little long in the tooth, but the up-tempo style should keep him rather productive heading into 2019. He's a reliable WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in most formats.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: MMQB - Robert Klemko
3 days agoThe Arizona Cardinals cut offensive tackle Desmond Harrison this week shortly after reports surfaced that he was being charged with assault of a female in North Carolina. He was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns in June after the veteran was released. The Cardinals now have an open roster spot heading into training camp. Players report on July 24, with the first practice July 25.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: AZCardinals.com - Darren Urban
3 days agoThe Arizona Cardinals signed safety Jalen Thompson (Washington State) to a four-year rookie contract this week. He was selected earlier in the month in the supplemental draft with a fifth-round pick, so the team surrenders two fifth-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft to get him. "I know I can compete with these guys, hang with them at a high level," Thompson said. "But for the most part, it's getting the plays down and once I see it on the field and get through a couple of walkthroughs, I'm going to be fine. I know I will." He was ineligible for the 2019 season at Washington State after reportedly taking an unapproved over-the-counter supplement from a nutrition store. The Cardinals DST remains nothing more than a low-end No. 2 unit in most fantasy formats heading into 2019.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: AZCardinals.com - Darren Urban
3 days agoThe Eagles are bringing back running back Darren Sproles for one more season. After playing in just six games last year, it looked like Sproles might be done in the NFL, but the Eagles decided to bring Sproles back to an already crowded backfield that features Jordan Howard, Corey Clement, and Miles Sanders. Clement might be in the most trouble from the Sproles signing, but overall it's looking more and more like this is a running back committee that fantasy owners should stay away from. This move does almost guarantee that either Josh Adams or Wendell Smallwood are cut before the season opens.--Justin Carter - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport
