2 months agoThe Denver Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. reached an agreement on Tuesday on a one-year contract adjustment for 2019, according to sources. Harris was scheduled to make $8.9 million this year but will instead rake in $12.05 million. The 29-year-old has become one of the best cornerbacks in the league. He had 49 tackles, one sack, three interceptions (one touchdown) and 10 passes defensed in 12 games last season. He'll lead Denver's secondary for at least one more season in new head coach Vic Fangio's defense.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 9News - Mike Klis
2 months agoThe New Orleans Saints signed free-agent running back Javorius Allen on Tuesday, according to a source. Also known as Buck Allen, the former USC Trojan had 41 carries for 110 yards and three touchdowns on the ground in 2018 for the Ravens. He also caught 35 passes for 196 yards and two more scores. He'll help serve as depth in the backfield behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. Unless one of the two ahead of him suffer an injury, Allen won't have a place on fantasy rosters in 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Field Yates
2 months agoDetroit Lions offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team will continue to have a run-first mentality in 2019. “We’ll always be about running the football,” Bevell said Tuesday. “We want to be a tough, hard-nosed, physical football team. We want to be able to exert our will on our opponents.” Bevell oversaw offenses that ranked in the top 10 in rushing four times from 2011-17 with the Seahawks. He also had three top-10 rushing units in Minnesota from 2006-10. Kerryon Johnson should reap the rewards of Bevell's rush-first attack, while C.J. Anderson and Theo Riddick will help with depth behind him in the backfield, with Riddick mostly being useful in the passing attack.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Detroit Free Press - Dave Birkett
2 months agoCincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross, the team's first-round pick in 2016, has shown fluidity as a receiver in head coach Zac Taylor's system so far in organized team activities. The 24-year-old third-year wideout figures to move all around the field as a threat, a decoy and dynamic weapon for the offense. "With John he's still thinking," wide receiver Tyler Boyd said. "He's thinking and then he reacts. I feel like once he gets comfortable and makes plays he'll be fine. He's just got to cut it loose." Cincy's coaching staff isn't babying Ross either, so he'll have plenty of chances to make an impact this year. Ross is still only 23, too, so he could easily break out in Taylor's offense this year, but fantasy owners won't need to invest anything more than a late-round flier in deeper leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Michael LaPlaca
2 months agoFree-agent running back Orleans Darkwa (Achilles), who tore his Achilles working out for the Jaguars last October, is said to be "100 percent" recovered from the injury and ready to sign with a team. Darkwa had a career-high 171 carries for 751 yards (4.4 average) and five touchdowns in his final season with the Giants in 2017. He could be scooped up by another team, but he's unlikely to carve out a significant role wherever he lands at this point.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Adam Schefter
2 months agoTennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is up 12 to 13 pounds from where he was at when the 2018 season ended. The Titans broke through this offseason and convinced Mariota that bulking up was more important than his agility work in an effort to keep him healthy for a full season. The 25-year-old has never played a full season in his four years in the NFL, and he remains a mediocre QB2 option in a run-first offense. The 2019 season might end up being a make-or-break season for Mariota as he attempts to take the next step in his career. He has a combined 24 touchdowns in his last two seasons. That's not going to cut it for fantasy owners.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource:
2 months agoThe Denver Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. are very close to a new one-year deal, and both sides are hoping to come to an agreement on Tuesday. Harris has been holding out of offseason workouts until he gets a raise on his current contract. The two sides still appear headed to a divorce after the 2019 season, but keeping Harris around for one more season will be big for their secondary as they try to bounce back from a frustrating 2018 season. It'll be interesting to see how Denver's D does under defensive-minded head coach Vic Fangio.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 9News - Mike Klis
2 months agoPhiladelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders, the team's second-round pick, remains out of practice on Tuesday. He has been out for all of organized team activities with an unknown injury. Even in Philly's crowded backfield that includes Jordan Howard, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood, Sanders has a chance to see significant touches in his rookie season. However, missing valuable offseason practices at OTAs could set his development back and give Howard a leg up on lead-back duties early in 2019. Stay tuned for more details on the nature of Sanders' ailment.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports Philadelphia - Reuben Frank
2 months agoJacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles is absent from organized team activities this week for what the team called personal reasons, with no given timetable for his return. He might return by the end of the week, but there is no certainty. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick and his family,” head coach Doug Marrone said. The Jags signed the former Super Bowl MVP to a four-year, $88 million deal this offseason. Foles played well when he was thrust into action the last two seasons when Carson Wentz went down with injury in Philadelphia. He has QB1 upside in the right matchups, but you shouldn't overvalue Foles with his move to a run-first offense.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: New York Post - Ethan Sears
2 months agoHouston Texans safety Justin Reid (wrist), who recorded 81 tackles, three interceptions (one returned for a TD), two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in his rookie season, is eyeing a full recovery before the start of the regular season and participated fully in organized team activities. "I'm not 100 percent yet, but feeling really, really good about it," Reid said. "I've been making great progress. I'm excited about where it will be by the time the season comes around." Reid became a defensive enforcer for Houston's secondary in his first season, and he could take the next step in his sophomore campaign. He showed well as a tackler while displaying range, instincts and cover skills. Don't forget his name in IDP leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Houston Chronicle - Aaron Wilson
2 months agoThe Denver Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. are moving closer to an agreement on a deal for a contract adjustment, according to sources. Harris is scheduled to make $8.9 million in 2019 in salary and bonuses in what was supposed to be the final year of his deal. Denver is offering the Pro Bowler a pay raise, which is overdue at this point. There is cautious optimism that the two sides will reach a deal by the time the team holds their final segment of organized team activities by Friday. The four-time Pro Bowler is the heart and soul of the Broncos secondary, but he has yet to practice with the team's revised 3-4 defensive scheme under new head coach Vic Fangio.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 9News - Mike Klis
2 months agoSan Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman is the most likely back to lead the team in touches, both as a runner and receiver in 2019, in the opinion of NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco. Jerick McKinnon (knee) is coming off a torn ACL in 2018 and might not be the same runner he was pre-injury. McKinnon, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert are not taking part in organized team activities due to their injuries. Coleman will be the most attractive fantasy piece in drafts, but with how crowded this backfield is when healthy, there is plenty of potential for him to disappoint as well.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports Bay Area - Matt Maiocco
2 months agoNew England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson announced on his social media on Sunday that he is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Watson took a testosterone supplement that was legally prescribed by his doctor but banned by the league when he figured his playing days were over after the 2018 season. The 15-year veteran and 38-year-old spent the first six years of his career with the Patriots after being taken with the final pick of the first round in 2004. The Patriots signed Watson regardless of his suspension, mainly because they need depth after Rob Gronkowski retired. Watson had 35 catches for 400 yards and two touchdowns for the Saints last season, but he's unlikely to be anything more than a low-end TE2 in 2019. Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Matt LaCosse will battle for playing time to begin the year with Watson suspended.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Washington Post - Scott Allen
2 months agoLos Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa (foot), who was limited to seven regular season games in 2019 due to a left foot injury, said he's still dealing with some soreness but it hasn't limited him physically in organized team activities. “It’s not causing a limp or anything. It’s just there. It’s just something I notice,” Bosa said. “It’s been getting better all offseason, so I could definitely see by camp or maybe even next year where it kind of starts fading away. Once you get into season, it gets pretty intense, so we’ll see.” Bosa had 23 sacks, including an NFL-record 19 in his first 20 games, in his first two seasons in the NFL. He's a risk because of his injury-prone career so far, but Bosa's pass-rushing upside is as high as any player in the league going into 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Associated Press - Joe Reedy
2 months agoNew England Patriots rookie wide receiver N'Keal Harry has impressed backup quarterback Brian Hoyer so far in organized team activities and the improvements he's made on a day-to-day basis. The 6-foot-2, 228-pound Harry has a large catch radius and lined up in multiple spots and seemed to know where he was going. Head coach Bill Belichick referred to Harry as "smart." Alongside quarterback Tom Brady's go-to weapon of Julian Edelman, Harry will likely have a lot on his plate in Year 1 and has a chance to make the most impact of any rookie wide receiver in the 2019 class.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Boston - Mike Reiss
