3 days agoSeattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been very impressed with rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf in offseason practices. "It’s great seeing DK [Metcalf] make his plays. I think DK is looking really, really special," Wilson said. "He can do anything and everything and he’s tremendous." The second-round pick isn't just a physical specimen at 6-foot-4, 229 pounds with a 4.33-yard 40-yard dash and 40.5-inch vertical jump. Wilson has been impressed with his knowledge of the game as well. Metcalf should be the No. 2 in his rookie season behind Tyler Lockett, and he really has a chance to put up special numbers in Year 1 with Wilson slinging him the football deep.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Seahawks.com - John Boyle
3 days agoGreen Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been lining up as the No. 2 behind Davante Adams and ahead of Geronimo Allison during offseason practices. Minicamp practices revealed that MVS is a starter and probably the No. 2 behind Adams, with Allison likely to serve as the slot man in three-wide sets. “I think this offense is really catered for a guy like him,” Adams said of Valdes-Scantling. The fifth-round pick had some standout games as a rookie but was altogether very inconsistent for fantasy owners. Valdes-Scantling finished with 38 catches for 581 yards and had a team-high 15.3 yard-per-catch average. It's looking like he's a perfect fit for new head coach Matt LaFleur's offense, and he'll be coveted by fantasy owners in the later rounds as a potential breakout candidate.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Rob Demovsky
3 days agoKansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (ankle) has missed all of the team's offseason workouts as he recovers from ankle surgery, but he expects to be 100 percent healthy in time for training camp. Kelce is one of a kind at the tight end position and should be the first name off the board at the position in fantasy drafts despite his ankle injury. The 29-year-old caught a career-high 103 passes (150 targets) for 1,336 yards and 10 touchdowns last year and has superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes throwing him passes. Kelce has now gone over 1,000 yards receiving in three straight seasons. He's pretty good.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Chiefs Wire - Charles Goldman
3 days agoKansas City Chiefs running back Carlos Hyde, who was signed as a free agent this offseason, has occasionally lined up next to starter Damien Williams in the backfield at minicamp and has frequently been used as a receiver. "It's not just a one-dimensional running back here. You do it all. You line up at receiver. You actually run routes. You're not just a decoy," Hyde said. It's all fine and dandy right now, but it remains to be seen how much run Hyde will actually get when the games matter. At best, he's a handcuff for Williams owners in fantasy drafts. The 28-year-old floundered with both the Browns and Jaguars in a disappointing 2018 season. He had 10 combined receptions in 14 games last year.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Adam Teicher
3 days agoChicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he "feels good" about tight end Trey Burton (hernia) being ready for the start of training camp this summer. Burton had hernia surgery this offseason. The 27-year-old caught a career-high 54 passes (76 targets) for 569 yards and six touchdowns in his first year in Chicago with Nagy running the show. In this improving offense, Burton could improve further and will be a strong TE1 as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks in training camp.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Chicago - Jeff Dickerson
3 days agoIndianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (hip, kidney) didn't practice with the team this spring but was running routes at full speed in minicamp this week. He's coming off hip and kidney surgery, but it looks like he'll be able to take part in training camp next month. The 29-year-old played in just six games in 2018 because of his injuries and caught 26 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns. Doyle's fantasy upside will be limited as long as Eric Ebron is ahead of him, but he'd become a starter in most leagues if Ebron were to miss any time because of injury in 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Indianapolis Star - Zak Keefer
3 days agoBaltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said that the team is hopeful that rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) will be ready for training camp this summer. It's not for certain, but Brown hasn't had any setbacks and the team is optimistic. It was a good sign that the first-round wideout was cleared for individual drills at minicamp this week after he underwent Lisfranc surgery in January. The speedy receiver was taken at No. 25 overall and could have a big role in the passing game alongside Willie Snead and Chris Moore. There's still plenty of question as to whether Brown will be consistent in his rookie year in a run-first offense with a quarterback that had accuracy issues in his rookie season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL Network - Mike Garafolo
3 days agoBuffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy had the worst season of his 10-year career in 2018, but he's unfazed by the team adding Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon in free agency and Devin Singletary in the draft. McCoy fully expects to continue as the team's starting running back in 2019. "I mean, I'm a dominant player. I think that speaks for itself. But I'll be in the same role as last year. And I look forward to putting some numbers up and bouncing back from that last season," McCoy said. He'll turn 31 next month and finished with a career-low 514 yards and three touchdowns on 161 carries in 14 games (13 as a starter). Buffalo should use McCoy the most in this backfield, but he's lost a lot of fantasy luster and is more at risk for injury as he ages.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Buffalo News - Vic Carucci
3 days agoDallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder), who underwent offseason shoulder surgery, is likely to open up training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. However, the team is confident that he will be able to play in Week 1. The 27-year-old is a budding superstar in the NFL after collecting a total of 25 sacks in the last two seasons combined. Lawrence had 64 tackles, 10.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and an interception last season. Losing him for any part of the season would be a huge loss for the team's defensive line.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Dallas - Todd Archer
3 days agoDallas Cowboys Pro Bowl cornerback Byron Jones (hip) said his goal is to be ready at some point during training camp after having offseason hip surgery. He has yet to do full running but has done resistance training the last few weeks. The 26-year-old is a key component for Dallas' secondary. He had 67 tackles and 14 passes defensed in 2018 and has played a full season in each of his four years in the NFL so far.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Dallas - Todd Archer
3 days agoPhiladelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that wide receiver Nelson Agholor didn't practice in mandatory minicamp this week because of a lower body injury. He also sat out of the final two organized team activity practices open to the media last week. Agholor's absence has allowed for increased repetitions for wide receivers Greg Ward Jr. in the slot and rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside behind Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson. Agholor caught 64 passes for 736 yards and four touchdowns in 2018 but may struggle to match those numbers as long as D-Jax stays healthy. Arcega-Whiteside could also push him if he struggles to produce.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Penn Live - Daniel Gallen
3 days agoNew England Patriots running back Sony Michel (knee) missed the final stages of the team's offseason program because he underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee, according to a league source. He's expected to be ready for training camp in late July, though, so he should be fine for the start of the regular season after leading the team in 2018 with 209 rushing attempts for 931 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie. Michel should be heavily in the backfield mix again in 2019, but his extensive injury history coupled with the fact that New England's backfield is crowded -- James White, Rex Burkhead, Brandon Bolden and rookie Damien Harris are all lurking -- makes Michel a pretty risky second-year back after what he accomplished in his first season in the NFL.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Boston Globe
3 days agoTennessee Titans first-round rookie defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons (knee) said he's not "rushing anything" in his rookie season as far as getting back onto the field as he rehabs an ACL tear. "If I don’t play this year, I’m fine with it, but my goal is to get healthy on my time and on this team’s time. There’s no time limit and when I can come back," Simmons said. The 19th overall pick in the draft suffered his torn ACL in February while training, and he could return near the end of the 2019 season, but the Titans have no incentive to rush him. There is no timetable for him to run or jog yet. Simmons will surely help the Titans pass rush when he's healthy, but that might not be until 2020.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Nashville Tennessean - Erik Bacharach
3 days agoIndianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle) did some jogging this week during minicamp and his ankle surgery won't hinder him from training during summer break. He will head to Florida in the coming weeks to train and fully expects to be ready for the start of training camp. Leonard was an absolute beast in his rookie season, compiling 163 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions in 15 regular season games. The 23-year-old is a stud in the making and will be an early IDP selection despite sitting out during spring practices.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 1070 The Fan - Kevin Bowen
3 days agoIndianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said that running back Marlon Mack "is our main guy" with Nyheim Hines as the main third-down guy and Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams vying for another spot. Spencer Ware will be in the mix to spell Mack on early downs. Also, with rookie wide receiver Parris Campbell ticketed for the slot, it could affect Hines' targets in the passing game. Things will change week to week based on matchups, but Mack is the one to own in this backfield, with Hines being a potential flex option in PPR formats. Reich also said that the Colts will likely still be 60 percent pass and 40 percent run in 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 1070 The Fan - Kevin Bowen
