6/16:According to FOX 59 Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Colts held wide receiver Chester Rogers (hamstring) out of the entirety of minicamp. Rogers had much of his 2017 campaign derailed by a hamstring issue and the recurring nature of the injury should be concerning, but many expect him to be fine for training camp. After T.Y. Hilton, Rogers will have to compete with Ryan Grant, Deon Cain and Daurius Fountain to get No. 2 wideout duties. Unless quarterback Andrew Luck is back, fantasy owners should be cautious about spending anything more than a late round pick on Rogers.--Taylor Maxston - RotoBallerSource: Mike Chappell
6/16:Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard hopes to have tight end Erik Swoope (knee) back in time for training camp. Swoope has been sidelined since last August after undergoing numerous procedures to his knee. Even if he can participate in training camp without finding his name on the PUP list, Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle are clearly ahead of him on the depth chart. For fantasy purposes, Swoope's snaps will clearly be limited to three-tight end sets barring injury and won't be conducive to fantasy success.--Taylor Maxston - RotoBallerSource: Andrew Walker
6/16:Denver Broncos tight end Jake Butt (knee) lost 2017 to injury but hopes to make a big mark in 2018. Butt has torn his ACL in the same knee twice, and the second one cost him his rookie season. Day 2 of mini-camp was a major step forward in his quest as he caught two touchdowns within minutes of each other during red-zone drills. Butt was considered a major prospect and second-round talent before injuring himself in his final college game. He has a chance to assert himself, as his competition at the position with Denver is fairly inexperienced. Butt has the talent and the situation to become fantasy relevant in 2018 and the reports saying he felt 100% afterward Wednesday. Head coach Vance Joseph said he was excited about Butt's progress and that he is a playmaker.--Jamie Mellor - RotoBallerSource: Denver Post
6/15:Following this week's minicamp, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes it's "clear" the Indianapolis Colts have "big designs" for rookie running back Nyheim Hines in offense. From his hands to his kick return skills, Hines' name seems to keep popping up. Keefer added Hines was "among the most active players on offense" in spring practices, lining up at multiple positions, including the backfield, slot, out wide, and running the ball as well as catching it deep. For fantasy owners looking for pure talent in late rounds of their draft, Hines could fit in the sleeper category.--Taylor Maxston - RotoBallerSource: Zak Keefer
6/15:San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has been one of the most consistent receivers in offseason workouts for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. As an undrafted rookie wideout last year, Bourne had 16 catches for 257 yards, but he lacks elite speed. However, Garoppolo called Bourne "deceptively fast" and said he "has some wiggle to him." He has a chance to earn a roster spot but must compete with rookies Dante Pettis and Richie James. Bourne might be worth a late-round flier in dynasty leagues, but he's only one to watch in all other formats.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com - Nick Wagoner
6/15:New York Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell expects running back Elijah McGuire, who had 492 yards from scrimmage and 3.6 yards per carry as a rookie, to be the team's third-down back in 2018. “Eli looks fantastic to be perfectly honest,” Mitchell said. “I’ll tell you who I see Eli as — and he’s in the Hall of Fame. Eli has the skill set to be a LaDainian Tomlinson if he was given that opportunity. That’s not what presents itself to him at this particular point in time. But skill set, he can do it all. He can catch. He can run. He can run routes as a receiver. He just happens to be here … and I’m glad we got him.” It's hefty praise, but McGuire has the opportunity to see more third-down work than Bilal Powell, making him a late-round flier in PPR leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: New York Daily News - Manish Mehta
6/15:The Oakland Raiders fear that wide receiver Martavis Bryant could be facing discipline from the league, according to sources. The belief is that it pertains to the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Bryant missed the entire 2016 with the Steelers after repeated policy violations, so another suspension could be for all of the 2018 season or worse. He is entering the final year of his rookie deal and will be a free agent next March. Bryant can give the Raiders a potent deep threat alongside Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson, but Bryant's fantasy value will be in limbo until we know more. If he receives a lengthy suspension, it'd benefit Nelson, Seth Roberts, Ryan Switzer and tight end Jared Cook.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Las Vegas Review-Journal - Michael Gehlken
6/14:Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has performed well in offseason team practices. According to reports, the rookie has performed better than any Pittsburgh rookie quarterback since Ben Roethlisberger. So well, in fact, that many associated with the team believe he could make a serious push to become the team's backup quarterback behind Roethlisberger. Landry Jones has been the Steelers' backup quarterback for several years but he has shown to be below-average as an NFL talent. Rudolph doesn't have much of a chance to start for the team until Big Ben retires but he is a name to keep an eye on in deep, two-quarterback dynasty formats.--Matt Terelle - RotoballerSource: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
6/14:New Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley did not hold back when asked about wide receiver Corey Coleman on Thursday. Haley stated, "He understands this is a big, big year in his career. Year three is usually the make-or-break year of what kind of you're going to be. I've made that clear to him. He understands it, and he's working hard accordingly to try to be the best that he can be." Coleman, the team's first-round pick in 2016, has shown flashes but he has had two straight seasons cut short by a broken hand. In offseason practices, Coleman has operated as the team's third receiver after Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry. Rookie Antonio Callaway was expected to push Coleman for the No. 3 job but he's been sidelined by a groin issue. There have been plenty of rumors that the Browns might trade Coleman, but no deals appear imminent.--Matt Terelle - RotoballerSource: Cleveland Plain Dealer
6/14:Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore looks ready to contribute in his first season and has been smooth during offseason practices. Moore has speed and has a knack for making defenders miss. Carolina really needed another receiver to help Devin Funchess out, and Moore is that guy. He'll give the Panthers offense and quarterback Cam Newton another weapon in the passing game, and Moore could be the No. 2 option ahead of deep threat Torrey Smith. Be careful not to overvalue Moore in his first season, but he could become a fine WR3 for fantasy owners in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Panthers.com - Max Henson
6/14:Houston Texans linebacker Benardrick McKinney signed a five-year, $50 million extension on Thursday. The deal includes $21 million in guarantees. A former second-round pick, McKinney has done nothing but produce in his three years in the NFL and has 287 tackles and nine sacks, including 129 tackles in 2016. He's a bit overshadowed on his own team next to the likes of J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus, but McKinney is an IDP beast in his own right. Houston's defense is full of talent.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Houston Chronicle - John McClain
6/14:Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is expected to stop just shadowing No. 1 wide receivers in games under the new scheme of head coach Steve Wilks. Peterson wants to make more impact plays for the team and believes that moving around the field will allow him to do just that. This raises the upside for the Cardinals defense in fantasy leagues. However, they should still not be considered a top-10 unit due to the rest of their defense's fragilities. Peterson becomes a better IDP option as a result, but he already was a top-tier talent before the scheme change.--Martin K - RotoBallerSource: Kyle Odegard
6/14:The Arizona Cardinals have signed free-agent wide receiver Greg Little after two tryouts with the team. Little is a former Browns second-round pick. Since recording 709 yards as a rookie in 2011, Little has struggled to perform on the field and spent the last year and a half out of the NFL. However, he looks to have a chance at a comeback with the signing. Even if Little makes the roster, he is a long shot to have any fantasy relevance in the majority of formats.--Martin K - RotoBallerSource: Ian Rapoport
6/14:Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he was impressed with how quarterback Patrick Mahomes handled himself when facing complicated blitz pickups during offseason workouts. “We wanted to come in and make sure we challenged him,” Reid explained of Mahomes. “I thought he handled that very well. One of the big things for young kids is just the blitz game, so we put a big emphasis on that and tried to give him a lot of different looks there." Mahomes has great athleticism and a very strong arm with plenty of offensive talent around him. It's why they felt it was OK to let Alex Smith go. Mahomes has big-time upside but is still raw. He's an intriguing QB2 with QB1 upside based on matchups.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Chiefs.com - BJ Kissel
6/14:According to the Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis Colts running back Robert Turbin will have an "important place" in the Colts offense for 2018. “I think [Turbin] brings an element of size and power and strength to the mix,” head coach Frank Reich said. Turbin appeared in only six games last season, eventually being placed on Injured Reserve due to a left arm injury. While Turbin has shown promise in limited work as a third-down specialist, the bevy of rushers in the Colts backfield are all likely due some form of work in a true committee situation.--Taylor Maxston - RotoBallerSource: Stephen Holder
