1.Dynasty | Sammy Watkins looks incredible (Dynasty League Football) NFL Network's Peter Schrager says Kansas City receiver Sammy Watkins "looks incredible!" Analysis: We've essentially heard that in year's past and fantasy coaches are still waiting for the production to match the expectation. That said, Watkins came out on Twitter to say: "I will be the best this year mark my word I want it more now than I ever did before in my life...". The full Tweet can be read in the linked article. Watkins showed flashes last year though in only 10 games and finished the season with 40 receptions, 519... (More)1 hour
2.Dynasty | Leonard Fournette pleads no contest (Dynasty League Football) Leonard Fournette pleaded no contest for driving on a suspended license after he was nabbed for doing 37 mph. in a 25 mph zone. Analysis: No word as to whether he pulled a hamstring during the stop. The speed demon won't serve any time and the Jaguars are not expected to pursue any other punishment. He was arrested after it was learned he was driving on a suspended license and had a warrant out for his arrest due to other traffic violations. Fournette and former Jaguar running back, T.J. Yeldon, were famously taken to task by Tom Coughlin after appeari... (More)1 hour
3.Dynasty | Cooper Kupp on track (Dynasty League Football) Cooper Kupp is recovering well from his torn ACL and head coach Sean McVay said he's "...right on track with where we want him to be." Analysis: Kupp refused to commit to a return date when asked by reporters but he worked through individual drills on Monday during team OTAs. In his second season, he amassed 40 receptions for 566 yards and six touchdowns in eight games before suffering a torn ACL. As a rookie, he totaled 62/869/5. Quarterback Jared Goff immediately developed chemistry and the two were hooking up early and often before the ... (More)1 hour
4.Dynasty | Tyler Eifert update brings good news (Dynasty League Football) Tyler Eifert is doing "pretty much everything" thus far early in camp as he recovers from a broken ankle suffered early in 2018. Analysis: Eifert has undergone season-ending surgery in each of the past three seasons. In 2015, his last full season, he reeled in 52 passes for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns, putting himself squarely on the fantasy radar for 2016, but has fallen to the dreaded IR in each season since. Eifert has signed a one-year deal and, at only 28 years of age, could still salvage his career if he can avoid the knife, or at least th... (More)1 hour
5.Report: Reuben Foster may have artery da... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay reports the Redskins "also have some worries" that Reuben Foster (knee) suffered possible artery damage when tearing his ACL on Monday. Analysis: Artery damage is what ended Zach Miller's career in New Orleans back in 2017 when he shredded his knee while scoring a should-be touchdown. His leg literally had to be saved. Foster's may not be at that extent, but artery damage is very concerning and could complicate his recovery. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport previously reported Foster has additional damage on top of his ACL tear.4 hours
6.Gerald McCoy: Set to be released (RotoWire) The Buccaneers informed McCoy on Monday that they plan to release him, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Analysis: McCoy was owed $13 million for 2019 which led Tampa Bay to seek out potential trade partners, but the team was apparently unable to find any suitors and will cut him since they face no dead-cap penalty. The 31-year-old was not present for voluntary workouts or the start of OTAs last week. McCoy spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Buccaneers but seems likely to have numerous potential options in free agency.8 hours
7.Dontae Johnson: Let go by Chiefs (RotoWire) Johnson was released by the Chiefs on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Johnson signed on with the Chiefs in February after bouncing between four organizations last season. The 27-year-old started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2017 but has since had trouble latching on with a new team.8 hours
8.Bucs connected to Suh as McCoy replaceme... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Greg Auman reports free agent Ndamukong Suh's name is "circulating" around the Bucs as a potential replacement for Gerald McCoy. Analysis: McCoy was released within the last hour, and the Bucs may move quickly to snatch up Suh. Suh played in a 3-4 scheme with the Rams last year and would very likely come on a one-year deal after lingering on the market this long. McCoy never fit in new DC Todd Bowles' scheme and was owed too much money for the team's liking. Suh was drafted No. 2 overall in 2010, and McCoy went right after him at No. 3. Suh is a year older, having turned ... (More)8 hours
9.John Phillips: Joins Chiefs (RotoWire) Phillips signed a contract with the Chiefs on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Phillips spent 2018 in Arizona and caught three passes for 38 yards in eight games. The 31-year-old has topped 100 receiving yards only once in his nine-year career, so he shouldn't be expected to factor much into the passing game if he manages to make the 53-man roster.8 hours
10.Bucs cut DT McCoy after nine years, save... (Rotoworld) Bucs released DT Gerald McCoy. Analysis: McCoy spent nine years with the team after Tampa Bay used the No. 3 overall pick in the 2010 draft on him out of Oklahoma. Money was the driving force behind the move, as McCoy was owed a gargantuan $13 million this year, all of which comes off the books for the cap-strapped Bucs. McCoy turned 31 in February and has seen his play slip a bit from the dominant inside force he once was, but he should have no issue landing on his feet elsewhere.8 hours
11.Reuben Foster: Torn ACL feared (RotoWire) Foster is believed to have suffered a torn ACL in addition to further damage to his left knee during Monday's OTA, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Foster was carted off the field with an air cast on the knee after sustaining the injury on one of the first plays of 11-on-11 work. Per JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington, the additional damage is a potential artery issue in his leg, which could present much larger issues. Assuming the diagnosis is confirmed, the 25-year-old should miss the 2019 season.8 hours
12.Dynasty | Ezekiel Elliott handcuffed in Vegas (Dynasty League Football) Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed in Las Vegas after knocking a security guard to the ground at a music festival. He was handcuffed and escorted away from the event, but no charges were filed. Analysis: This is a bad look for Elliott. Worse yet, TMZ got video of the entire altercation. While it wasn't particularly violent, Jerry Jones and fantasy owners have to be shaking there heads over the matter. Elliott has already served a suspension in 2017 stemming from domestic violence accusations, so for now we'll have to wait and see if the league office ... (More)9 hours
13.Redskins LB Reuben Foster tears ACL on M... (Rotoworld) Redskins LB Reuben Foster suffered a torn ACL at OTAs on Monday. Analysis: This was what many believed happened when it was reported Foster went down on the practice field earlier Monday. He left the field "sobbing," signaling he knew his season was over before it began. Claimed off waivers by the Redskins last November after the 49ers cut him due to various off-field issues, Foster has yet to play a game for Washington and will not do so anytime before 2020 at the earliest.9 hours
14.Jordan Leggett: Parts ways with Jets (RotoWire) Leggett was waived by the Jets on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Leggett's two seasons in New York were wholly uneventful, as he did not see the field during his rookie year due to injury and caught only 14 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown last season. The 2017 fifth-round pick will look to latch on elsewhere for a fresh start in Year 3.9 hours
15.Danny Shelton: Rejoins Pats (RotoWire) Shelton signed a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Shelton had his fifth-year option for 2019 declined shortly after being acquired by the Patriots from the Browns in March 2018, but he nonetheless returns to New England after testing the waters in free agency. The 25-year-old had 21 tackles (10 solo) and did not record a sack in 13 games for the Patriots last season.10 hours
16.Chiefs add TE John Phillips as veteran d... (Rotoworld) Chiefs signed TE John Phillips. Analysis: A nine-year journeyman, Phillips has previously had unsuccessful stints with the Cowboys, Chargers, Broncos, Cardinals and Saints. If he lands on the Chiefs' 53-man roster, it will purely be as a blocking tight end.11 hours
17.Gotham Green waive second-year TE Legget... (Rotoworld) Jets waived TE Jordan Leggett.11 hours
18.Quinton Dunbar: Not ready for OTAs (RotoWire) Dunbar (shin) didn't participate in OTAs, but is progressing nicely from injury, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Head coach Jay Gruden was optimistic about Dunbar, saying he's doing very well, but the team is taking a cautious approach with his recovery per El-Bashir. Dunbar is rehabbing a shin injury sustained in Week 9, in which there was a nerve problem in his leg, and the team placed him on injured reserve. It's still uncertain whether the 26-year-old will be ready for training camp or not.11 hours
19.Patriots bring back run-stuffing DT Shel... (Rotoworld) Patriots signed DT Danny Shelton. Analysis: The Patriots sent a third-round pick to Cleveland in order to acquire Shelton last March, but utilized the run-stuffer on just 23 snaps over two postseason games at season's end. The 25-year-old will make for a viable option in a rotational role up the middle with Lawrence Guy, Adam Butler, and Mike Pennel.11 hours
20.Dynasty | Reuben Foster carted off practice field (Dynasty League Football) Washington linebacker Reuben Foster was carted off the practice field today after suffering a left leg injury. Analysis: It's been a tumultuous couple of years for Foster since leaving Alabama. Character and injury concerns caused him to drop in the draft and legal issues have caused him to miss time and led to his release from the team that drafted him. Once considered a slam dunk IDP prospect, Foster's many issues have dropped him to LB54 in DLF's rankings. It's too early to tell if the linebacker will miss this season, but it's n... (More)11 hours
21.Bucs WR Perriman 'in rhythm early' w/ Ja... (Rotoworld) Pewter Report's Scott Reynolds reports Buccaneers WR Breshad Perriman is "in rhythm early" with Jameis Winston. Analysis: Perriman's tenuous career finally clicked under Freddie Kitchens in Cleveland last season as he closed out the team's final eight games with a total 15/334/2 receiving line. Although it's no guarantee, the former first-rounder appears well on his way to opening the year as Tampa Bay's No. 3 wideout behind Mike Evans and slot receiver Chris Godwin. A tremendous fit in Bruce Arians' over-the-top offensive approach, Perriman is currently going undrafted (and thus an early ... (More)12 hours
22.Cordrea Tankersley: Not participating in OTAs (RotoWire) Tankersley is still dealing with a torn ACL, and is not practicing during OTAs, Omar Kelly of The Sun Sentinel reports. Analysis: This news isn't surprising, given the fact that Tankersley suffered the injury in early November, and was looking at a 9-12 month recovery. Furthermore, Tankersley is likely to land on the physically unable to perform list to start the season per Kelly. The 25-year-old's absence likely won't effect the defense much, considering Bobby McCain and recently-signed Xavien Howard will be back for 2019, after they took a significant portion of the cornerback snaps last season.12 hours
23.Chris Harris: Still in contract talks (RotoWire) Harris and the Broncos are in talks for a short-term contract for this upcoming season, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Harris informed the team April 23 that he'd like a new contract or to be traded, and seems to be getting his wish. He's currently set to make just under $9 million in 2019, but the talks have moved to the possibility of a new one-year contract worth around $15 million, giving Harris the chance to hit free agency in 2020. The 29-year-old is certainly a difference maker, nabbing 19 career interceptions, but will turn 30 next month and is coming off a leg injury that forced him to miss the final four games of the ... (More)13 hours
24.Jurrell Casey: Bulking up this offseason (RotoWire) Casey said Monday that he was playing last season about 15 pounds underweight, and is working to put on 15-20 pounds of muscle in the offseason, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reports. Analysis: It's interesting to note that Casey was listed at 315 pounds last season, but was playing at around 275 pounds, which was his lowest playing weight of his career. The 29-year-old stated he's currently at 284 pounds this offseason, and would love to keep adding muscle and reach 290 pounds for the season. The Pro Bowl-caliber player had a monster season in 2018, despite playing underweight by his standards, as he racked up 62 tackles (36 solo) and seven sacks. ... (More)13 hours
25.Jonah Williams expected to man left tack... (Rotoworld) With LT Cordy Glenn shifting to left guard, No. 11 overall pick Jonah Williams is expected to begin the year as the Bengals' left tackle. Analysis: The fact that the Bengals are already clearing the deck for a switch in mid-May means they will give Williams every opportunity to earn blindside duties. Williams wins with technique as opposed to athleticism, so it's possible his transition won't be the smoothest. Glenn is an excellent insurance policy in that regard.13 hours
26.Gruden expects Guice to be ready for cam... (Rotoworld) Redskins coach Jay Gruden expects Derrius Guice (knee) to be ready for training camp.13 hours
27.Rueben Foster carted off the field with apparent injury at Monday's OTAs (FantasyPros) Reuben Foster was seen being carted off the field during OTAs on Monday. Analysis: Foster reportedly grabbed his knee right away and was sobbing when getting carted off. These factors lead us to believe he suffered a serious injury. The Redskins will likely update his status later today.13 hours
28.Cordy Glenn moving to left guard for Ben... (Rotoworld) Bengals LT Cordy Glenn will move to left guard for the 2019 season. Analysis: "(OL coach Jim) Turner and I had a man-to-man talk," Glenn said. Glenn said he is embracing the move, which clears space for No. 11 overall pick Jonah Williams at left tackle. "Love his mindset," coach Zac Taylor said. "He wants to do whatever to help us win." Glenn has not played guard since his college days at Georgia. Going on 30, Glenn was a liability at tackle last season.13 hours
29.Carson Wentz (back) will have no limitations at OTAs (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Carson Wentz (back) will have zero limitations at OTAs. Analysis: Wentz was banged up all of 2018 and looks to finally be healthy. Philadelphia will reportedly still be "smart" with him at OTAs, but he's expected to be involved in the majority of all work. In 11 games last season Wentz compiled a 21/7 TD/INT ratio.13 hours
30.Shamarko Thomas: Sidelined at OTAs (RotoWire) Thomas (undisclosed) did not participate at Monday's OTAs, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The reason behind Thomas being held out of practice has yet to be revealed, but there should be further information once Denver wraps up practice later Monday. Thomas appeared in six games with the Broncos in 2018 and will likely have a depth role in the secondary once again this season.13 hours
31.Zeke Elliott has incident at music festi... (Rotoworld) Ezekiel Elliott was released without charge after being handcuffed at a Las Vegas music festival over the weekend. Analysis: Elliott had a minor altercation with a security guard. "He was cuffed as a precautionary measure," Elliott's attorney said. "He was released with no charges. He left Vegas that night and went to his (youth football camp in Dallas) on Sunday." It has the looks of a nonissue but with a six-game suspension already to his name, Elliott needs to avoid even minor incidents. 13 hours
32.Report: LB Foster's injury result of mis... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports Redskins LB Reuben Foster was "sobbing" as he was carted off the practice field on Monday. Analysis: Per Garofolo, Foster's injury "happened away from the play," and it is believed he was "trying to avoid traffic and took a misstep." It certainly sounds like the 25-year-old has suffered a season-ending injury.14 hours
33.'No limitations' for Carson Wentz in OTA... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there will be "no limitations" for Carson Wentz (back) in OTAs. Analysis: Per Rapsheet, the Eagles will be "smart" with their franchise quarterback, but that he is expected to "be involved in the majority of all work." Speaking in mid-April, Wentz had said he was not yet fully healed. Now Wentz should get in his usual work in mandatory minicamp before training camp.14 hours
34.Malik Jefferson: Full go at OTAs (RotoWire) Jefferson (toe) is participating at OTAs, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Analysis: After missing the first minicamp while recovering from a toe injury that landed him on IR last season, Jefferson was able to get back on the field Monday. Now that he's healthy, Jefferson will be able to compete for an increased role at strongside linebacker.14 hours
35.Keenum gets first crack at first-team re... (Rotoworld) Case Keenum took the first set of first-team reps in Redskins OTAs on Monday. Analysis: He was followed by No. 15 overall pick Dwayne Haskins. This is standard operating procedure and could remain so through the beginning of training camp. Haskins will overtake Keenum in time to be properly prepared as Week 1 starter.14 hours
36.Landon Collins: Present but limited at OTAs (RotoWire) Collins (shoulder) is present at OTAs but is not going through full team drills, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Analysis: One of Washington's biggest offseason acquisitions, Collins is still working his way back from a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Although he's just doing side work at OTAs, head coach Jay Gruden said Monday that he expects Collins to be ready for training camp, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.14 hours
37.Derrius Guice: Limited at OTAs (RotoWire) Guice (knee) is not going through 11-on-11 work during Monday's OTAs, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Analysis: The second-year running back continues to work his way back from an ACL injury in August, and the Redskins are being cautious with him at this stage of the offseason. The plan has been for Guice to do individual drills during OTAs with the hope of being fully ready for the start of training camp, so things appear to be progressing as expected.14 hours
38.Ezekiel Elliott handcuffed at Vegas music festival (FantasyPros) Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed at the EDC music festival in Las Vegas over the weekend after he shoved a security guard to the ground in a video shared by TMZ Sports. He was reportedly not formally charged with a crime or arrested but was temporarily detained. Analysis: The fact that Elliott was not formally charged with a crime or even officially arrested is a good sign for him, the Cowboys, and fantasy owners, but it does not mean that he is out of the woods just yet. As as happened in the past, the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell reserve the right to impose punishment in the form of fines or suspensions if ... (More)14 hours
39.Reuben Foster: Carted off at OTAs (RotoWire) Foster (undisclosed) was carted off the field during Monday's OTAs, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Analysis: The injury happened on one of the first plays of 11-on-11 work at Washington's OTAs. According to Les Carpenter of The Washington Post, Foster's left knee was placed in an air cast before being placed on the cart. There will be more information after Washington finishes practice for the day, but this appears to be a potentially significant injury for the third-year linebacker.14 hours
40.Matt Darr: Inks deal with Jets (RotoWire) Darr signed with the Jets on Monday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. Analysis: The Jets are adding some competition for incumbent Lachlan Edwards in the form of Darr, who spent part of last season with the Bills. Darr has not punted in an NFL game since 2016.15 hours
41.Kyle Lauletta underwent 'knee cleanup' (Rotoworld) Giants QB Kyle Lauletta underwent a "knee cleanup" this offseason. Analysis: The 2018 fourth-rounder was limited at the start of OTAs, but ESPN's Jordan Raanan expects Lauletta to return in the near future. Still, it is a blow to Lauletta's already slim chances of cracking the final roster. The Giants used the No. 6 overall pick on Daniel Jones, who is expected to open the season as Eli Manning's backup.15 hours
42.Reuben Foster carted w/apparent knee inj... (Rotoworld) Redskins LB Reuben Foster was carted off the field during OTAs with an apparent knee injury. Analysis: According to The Athletic's Rhiannon Walker, Foster immediately grabbed his left knee after going down on the second play of OTAs. He was placed in an air cast before being carted off the field. All indications suggest this is a serious knee injury, but nothing has been confirmed to this point. Foster's status should be updated later today.15 hours
43.Shurmur reiterates Eli Manning is the st... (Rotoworld) Giants coach Pat Shurmur reiterated Eli Manning is the starter. Analysis: Shurmur said No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones will get the majority of the snaps with the backup group. The Giants have clearly stated their plan is for Manning to start with Jones learning behind him, but that will not stop questions about Manning's spot atop the depth chart, especially if the veteran struggles early in the season. Despite the Giants' consistent message, it would be a surprise if Jones sits out all of 2019.16 hours
44.Chad Kelly: Gets second chance in Indy (RotoWire) Kelly signed a contract with the Colts on Monday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports. Analysis: A 2017 seventh-round pick of the Broncos, Kelly looked like an intriguing developmental option after claiming Denver's backup job heading into last season on the heels of a strong training camp and preseason. The 25-year-old suddenly found himself out of work by late October, when the Broncos waived him shortly after he was arrested on a trespassing charge. Kelly, who had a history of off-field transgressions during his time in college, went unsigned the rest of last season, but he'll now get a second chance in Indianapolis after apparen...

45.Christian Kirk 'nearly 100 percent recov... (Rotoworld) The Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman writes Christian Kirk (foot) is "nearly 100 percent recovered." Analysis: Kirk broke his foot in December. Kirk previously said he planned to be fully healthy in March, so this report is not a surprise. Kirk should be a full-go or close to it when the Cardinals open OTAs this week.16 hours
46.Sophomore CB Sam Beal opens OTAs as star... (Rotoworld) Giants sophomore CB Sam Beal opened OTAs as the starter opposite Janoris Jenkins.16 hours
47.Corey Coleman working as No. 3 receiver (Rotoworld) Corey Coleman is working as the No. 3 receiver during Giants OTAs. Analysis: There is a slew of options behind Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate including fifth-round rookie Darius Slayton, so Coleman is far from guaranteed to keep the No. 3 job throughout the offseason. Still, it is a promising start after his position coach said the former first-rounder has a "big opportunity" this summer. Coleman reaching his potential would be massive for the Odell Beckham-less Giants.16 hours
48.Connor McGovern taking over at center (Rotoworld) Broncos OL Connor McGovern is expected to take over at center. Analysis: Matt Paradis joined the Panthers during free agency, opening a hole at center for the Broncos. McGovern filled that spot after Paradis was injured last season, and he should take over the full-time job moving forward. McGovern has not been great thus far in his career, but he thinks center is "more of a natural position" than guard.17 hours
49.Flacco 'excited' to work with Noah Fant (Rotoworld) Joe Flacco is "excited" to work with first-round TE Noah Fant. Analysis: "He can obviously run," Flacco said. "The tight end in this offense, I think can be a big-time player if he can run and get a feel for how we run a couple of routes we have in." Flacco has consistently peppered tight ends with targets throughout his career, so Fant should be involved early if he is able to hold off the smorgasbord of tight ends behind him on the depth chart.17 hours
50.Verrett (Achilles') the favorite to star... (Rotoworld) The Mercury News' Cam Inman believes CB Jason Verrett (Achilles') is the favorite to start opposite Richard Sherman.17 hours
51.Colts sign ex-Broncos QB Chad Kelly (Rotoworld) Colts signed QB Chad Kelly. Analysis: The final pick of the 2017 draft, Kelly appeared as if he would get a few starts for the Broncos last season, but he was waived after drunkenly breaking into a stranger's house following a Halloween party. He tried out for the Colts during rookie minicamp earlier this month, and he clearly showed enough to earn a contract. If Kelly shows well, he could allow the Colts to trade Jacoby Brissett, who is entering the final year of his deal.18 hours
52.John Ross missed minicamp with 'tightnes... (Rotoworld) John Ross missed the Bengals' veterans volunteer minicamp because of "tightness." Analysis: This isn't major news since it was a volunteer workout in the offseason, but it's another example of Ross missing activities due to injury. The report doesn't specify which body part was tight, but Ross has been inactive with lingering hamstring injuries before. New Bengals coach Zac Taylor wants to give Ross a "fresh start" and as long as Ross is healthy, Taylor will get his first up-close impression of him at Monday's OTAs.1 day
53.Jurrell Casey wants to play 15 pounds he... (Rotoworld) Titans DE Jurrell Casey wants to play at 290 pounds in 2019 after playing at 275 pounds last year. Analysis: 275 pounds was Casey's lightest playing weight of his NFL career, and he wants to be "a little bit stronger and a little bit stouter to help the overall team as a whole." Playing heavier is usually a reason for concern, but Casey should have better odds to stay healthy for all 16 games after being placed on injured reserve last year with a sprained MCL. Still one of the most underrated defenders in the NFL, Casey will be a threat for eight-plus sacks in 2019.1 day
54.Winfree has a 'good chance' to be DEN's ... (Rotoworld) 9 News' Mike Klis believes Juwann Winfree has "a good chance" at being the Broncos' No. 5 wide receiver in 2019. Analysis: When everyone's healthy, the top four receivers are Emmanuel Sanders, Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Tim Patrick, but there's little depth beyond that. Winfree doesn't figure to see many targets as a rookie, however, meaning his value will come on special teams. In college, Winfree (6'1/210) bounced around with injuries piling up, ultimately settling in at Colorado as the Buffalo's No. 2 option.1 day
55.Pats could carry five RBs to keep Burkhe... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jeff Howe believes Rex Burkhead will only be active if the Patriots carry five running backs on the active roster. Analysis: The Patriots have primarily carried four active running backs during Bill Belichick's reign, and Burkhead looks to be the fifth option with Sony Michel, James White, third-round rookie Damien Harris, and special teamer Brandon Bolden near locks to be active if healthy. Howe believes Burkhead is too valuable for Belichick to let him go so the Patriots may carry five backs on gameday by taking a spot from either the linebackers or edge rushers. Even if Burkhead is...

56.Eagles likely to extend Wentz this offse... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles have opened extension talks with Carson Wentz. Analysis: "My belief is that deal will get done at some point this offseason," Schefter said in an appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic. "From everything I've gathered, the sides have begun talking. I think both sides are motivated to get it done. I don't think they're close right now, but when I talk to people around the league who look at that deal, they believe it's going to get done." Wentz had his fifth-year option picked up earlier this offseason. His back injury is a potential stumbling block,... (More)1 day
57.Rodney Anderson on track for training ca... (Rotoworld) Bengals sixth-round RB Rodney Anderson (knee) expects to be ready for training camp. Analysis: Anderson missed all but two games last year with a torn ACL. Injuries followed Anderson throughout his college career, but he should open training camp healthy. Anderson will compete with Trayveon Williams for a third-string role.1 day
58.Broncos not looking to extend Chris Harr... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala reports the Broncos aren't looking to extend CB Chris Harris. Analysis: The Broncos exchanged offers with Harris, but it sounds like talks are moving toward a pay raise over an extension. Harris wants an increase on the $8.8M he's due this year. The Broncos have been unwilling to match the $15M he's seeking to this point. Harris was a no-show at offseason workouts and could carry his holdout into mandatory minicamp.1 day
59.Chris Long formally announces his retire... (Rotoworld) Chris Long announced his retirement. Analysis: Long was open and honest with the team about his status throughout the offseason and he'll finally hang them up with two Super Bowl wins with the Patriots and Eagles in the last three seasons. More so than his standout career on the field, Long was well known for his actions and amazing deeds off of it, including being named ‘Walter Payton Man Of The Year’ in the City of Brotherly Love. He finishes a successful and menacing 11-year career with 70 sacks and 15 forced fumbles over 162 games played.2 days
60.Former Dolphins, Lions center Swanson re... (Rotoworld) Travis Swanson announced his retirement. Analysis: "I decided to retire from the game of football," Swanson announced in an Instagram post. His full statement can be viewed in the link below. Overshadowed by concussion issues the past two seasons, the former third-round pick finishes his career after five years played between the Lions and Dolphins.2 days
61.Matt Milano: Smooth recovery (RotoWire) Milano, who suffered a broken fibula in Week 14 and missed the rest of the season, has been participating in offseason workouts so far and is said to be on schedule to return before the season gets underway John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: The team may ease him back during the summer program, which shouldn't be a problem since he has two years in Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier's defense, but it sounds like he's well on track. Milano should be on IDP radars after posting 78 tackles, seven passes defensed, three interceptions and three fumble recoveries in just 13 games.2 days
62.Duke Williams: Plans to make most of last chance (RotoWire) Williams, signed by Buffalo following a stint with the CFL, has made a good impression on the coaching staff so far. "I like the fact that he seems to have developed some self-awareness in terms of what went on a few years back to where he is now and knowing what he must do, at least off the field, to prove his worth to people in this league at least, in terms of the decision makers around the league and starting with us," coach Sean McDermott told John Murphy of the Bills' official site. Analysis: At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds and coming from a troubled college career where he showed all kinds of talent at Auburn before being kicked off the team, W... (More)2 days
63.Cowboys in extension talks with Jaylon S... (Rotoworld) The Cowboys have opened extension talks with LB Jaylon Smith. Analysis: It's surprising the Cowboys are talking with Smith with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper needing new contracts. The Cowboys' cap situation may make it tough to fit all three. Smith only has three accrued seasons, so he would cost around $4.7 million to return as a restricted free agent. It would likely take a team-friendly deal to get something done.2 days
64.Ricardo Louis: Dealing with knee injury (RotoWire) Louis is dealing with a knee injury, not a neck injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: There was speculation that Louis was still suffering from the neck injury that kept him sidelined for the entire 2018 campaign. Regardless, the Auburn product is ineligible to return for the 2019 season after not being able to get medical clearance from the Dolphins due to this possibly career-threatening injury.2 days
65.Jayron Kearse: Won't move to linebacker (RotoWire) Kearse will compete for playing time at safety and nickel cornerback when Organized Team Activities begin Tuesday and won't be switching to weakside linebacker, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Last year, I played the nickel, but that was all off of instincts," Kearse said. "Now, I had time to work at it knowing I'll be in that role and playing that position." Analysis: A report earlier in April said he could move to linebacker, but it looks like Kearse will return to the role he had last season. Kearse could win significant snaps at slot corner with a strong training camp.2 days
66.Jets targeting Peyton Manning for GM job (Rotoworld) PFT's Mike Florio reports the Jets are targeting Peyton Manning for their GM job. Analysis: Manning has ties to Adam Gase from their time in Denver. He's the biggest name that been connected to the Jets, joining Eagles VP of Player Personnel Joe Douglas and NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah at the top of the list. Manning has turned down front office and media jobs since his retirement, but the Jets' opening could be enticing.2 days
67.Raiders LB Brandon Marshall fully health... (Rotoworld) Raiders LB Brandon Marshall (knee) said he has completely recovered from last year's knee injury. Analysis: Marshall's knee issues cost him five games last season. He's healthy now and will get in a full offseason. Despite trending down the past few years, the Raiders are counting on Marshall for significant snaps.2 days
68.Dynasty | Ryan Griffin released by Houston (Dynasty League Football) Ryan Griffin was released by Houston today. Analysis: This move has been anticipated since Griffin was arrested during the 2019 NFL draft for allegedly breaking a hotel window. He has since been charged with vandalism and public intoxication. The release of Griffin creates an opportunity for newly signed third-round pick Kehale Warring to see starter snaps if he can best 2018 third-rounder Jordan Akins and 2018 sixth-rounder Jordan Thomas for the top pass-catching tight end spot on the Texans. All three should see a small rise in value following the release... (More)3 days
69.Dynasty | Shane Ray signs with Baltimore (Dynasty League Football) Shane Ray signs a one-year deal with the Ravens. Analysis: A first round pick by the Broncos in 2015, Shane Ray had an excellent sophomore campaign recording eight sacks, but has struggled with injuries ever since. Ray will look to re-establish his value on a Baltimore team that lacks high-end pass-rushing talent.3 days
70.Dynasty | Michael Floyd signs with Baltimore (Dynasty League Football) Michael Floyd signed a one-year deal with the Ravens. Analysis: This will be Michael's fifth team in the last four years after he flamed out in Arizona. During his last 26 games he has amassed a paltry 24/220/2 receiving line, despite ample opportunity for relevant snaps. Floyd has a fair shot of making it onto the Ravens' final roster, but has little chance of producing fantasy-relevant-numbers.3 days
71.Dynasty | Jamie Collins is heading back to the Patriots (Dynasty League Football) Jamie Collins was signed to a one-year deal with the patriots. Analysis: The deal is worth just over one-million dollars, ($250,000 guaranteed,) but could reach five-million dollars with incentives. This is an excellent landing spot for Collins who put up some of his best years in New England before seeing his fantasy appeal diminish after being traded to the Browns in 2016. He is currently DLF's 33rd ranked dynasty linebacker, but should see a rise in value now that he has found a home.3 days
72.Deon Cain (knee) not close to 100 percen... (Rotoworld) Colts GM Chris Ballard said WR Deon Cain (knee) isn't close to 100 percent. Analysis: Ballard added Cain may not regain his form until "midway through the season." This isn't a surprise — Cain is nine month removed from surgery — but it puts a dent on his chances of a second-year breakout. Cain will likely be limited to start out training camp.3 days
73.Ryan Griffin: Waived by Houston (RotoWire) Griffin (groin) was waived by the Texans on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Griffin was in line to again be the Texans' top option at tight end heading into the 2019 season. It's unclear if his April arrest on charges of vandalism and public intoxication is what cost him a roster spot in Houston, but it is worth noting that Griffin was entering the final year of a three-year contract. Regardless, with the tight end now out of the picture, Jordan Thomas and rookie Kahale Warring will likely be fighting for the team's top spot at the position.3 days
74.Hilton likely to have limited offseason (Rotoworld) T.Y. Hilton (ankle) will be limited during offseason workouts. Analysis: Hilton played through a high-ankle sprain down the stretch last year. He's still not 100 percent, so it makes sense for the Colts to move him slowly. Hilton should be fine for training camp.3 days
75.Texans release TE Ryan Griffin, save $2.... (Rotoworld) Texans released TE Ryan Griffin. Analysis: This comes a month after Griffin was charged with vandalism and public intoxication after allegedly punching through a window at a Nashville hotel. The Texans saw enough from third-round TE Kahale Warring to move on from Griffin, who started 11 games last year. Griffin should resurface before training camp.3 days
76.Isaiah Johnson: Back in Indianapolis (RotoWire) Johnson signed a contract with the Colts on Friday. Analysis: Just a few weeks after being waived by the Colts, Johnson is back with the team following the release of cornerback D.J. Killings. Johnson has appeared in just 12 career games since joining the league back in 2015.3 days
77.Rams sign Isaiah Johnson (Rotoworld) Rams signed DB Isaiah Johnson. Analysis: D.J. Killings was waived in a corresponding move. Johnson's appeared in six games with the Rams over the last three seasons. He'll compete for one of the final roster spots.3 days
78.Jon Bostic works out for Ravens (Rotoworld) Free agent LB Jon Bostic worked out for the Ravens. Analysis: Bostic was a 14-game starter for the Steelers last year. He became expendable after they drafted Devin Bush. The Ravens are the first team to show interest in Bostic since his release. Bostic would give Baltimore a veteran on the inside after losing C.J. Mosley to the Jets.3 days
79.Cordrea Tankersley candidate for reserve... (Rotoworld) Dolphins CB Cordrea Tankersley (knee) could open the season on the PUP list. Analysis: Tankersley is six months removed from tearing his ACL. He was "still limping" back in April and isn't participating in OTAs. Tankersley will miss at least the first six games if he lands on reserve/PUP.3 days
80.Brandon King: Sticking with New England (RotoWire) King signed a two-year extension with the Patriots on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: King was entering the final season of his current two-year deal but is now signed through 2021. The 25-year-old has 42 tackles (30 solo) in his four-year career, and has exclusively played special teams for the Patriots.3 days
81.Quinton Dial: Announces retirement (RotoWire) Dial announced Friday that he plans to retire from the NFL, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: Dial did not see NFL action in 2018 after serving as a rotational defensive tackle for the Packers a year prior. The 28-year-old spent his first four seasons in San Francisco, and he finishes with 145 tackles (90) and 4.5 sacks for his career.3 days
82.Aldrick Robinson: Inks deal with Carolina (RotoWire) Robinson signed a one-year deal with the Panthers on Friday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports. Analysis: Robinson spent 2018 in Minnesota and caught 17 passes for 231 yards and set a career high with five touchdowns. The 30-year-old has never eclipsed 400 receiving yards in a season and is likely to serve as a low-volume big-play threat if he manages to make the 53-man roster.3 days
83.Patriots give King to two-year extension (Rotoworld) Patriots signed ST Brandon King to a two-year extension through 2021. Analysis: King has played exactly one snap on defense across four seasons. He's a standout on special teams, however. As long as he keeps it up, he'll have a place on Bill Belichick's squad.3 days
84.Giants LT Solder recovering from ankle s... (Rotoworld) Giants LT Nate Solder will be sidelined until training camp after undergoing an ankle scope. Analysis: The highest-paid left tackle in the sport last year -- only to be surpassed by Taylor Lewan -- Solder predictably didn't live up to his pay grade after coming over from the Patriots. Pro Football Focus credited Solder with allowing seven sacks, ninth-most among 75 qualified tackles, and also gave him poor marks for both his run and pass blocking. 31-year-old Solder needs to be better.3 days
85.Michael Floyd: Signs with Baltimore (RotoWire) Floyd agreed to a deal with the Ravens on Friday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Floyd spent 2018 in Washington but failed to make much of an impact with 10 receptions for 100 yards and one touchdown in 13 games. The 29-year-old could seemingly carve out a role behind Willie Snead and rookies Marquise Brown (foot) and Miles Boykin (hamstring). It's worth remembering Floyd hasn't topped 500 receiving yards since 2015 with the Cardinals, and that the Ravens feature a low-volume passing attack with Lamar Jackson under center.3 days
86.Jarvis Landry: Dealing with minor injury (RotoWire) Landry has been held out of spring practices with a minor injury, Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon Journal reports. Analysis: Landry continues to attend practice as an on-field spectator, while close friend and new teammate Odell Beckham has mostly elected to work out on his own. It will be difficult to match last year's mark of 149 targets with Beckham on the team, but Landry should make up for some of the likely volume loss with improved efficiency, following a 2018 campaign with just 6.6 yards per target and a career-low 54.4 percent catch rate. Landry and Beckham should have plenty of time to build chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield thi... (More)3 days
87.Shane Ray: Joining Baltimore (RotoWire) Ray agreed to a one-year deal with the Ravens on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Ray had numerous free-agent visits -- including the Raiders and Seahawks -- but ends up joining the Ravens after Denver elected not to pick up his fifth-year option for 2019. The 2015 first-round pick had only one sack in each of the past two seasons, as he was limited to 19 games with multiple injuries. Ray figures to compete with Tim Williams, Tyus Bowser, Jaylon Ferguson and Pernell McPhee for reps at outside linebacker, where only Matt Judon is locked into a key role for the Ravens.3 days
88.Lord Aldrick: Panthers sign Aldrick Robi... (Rotoworld) Panthers signed WR Aldrick Robinson, formerly of the Vikings. Analysis: Dubbed "Lord Aldrick" by former Rotoworld All-Pro Adam Levitan, Robinson is a 5'10/185 deep threat who has seemed to produce wherever he lands. With the Vikings last year, Robinson caught a career-high five touchdowns on 17 catches for 231 yards. He has 14 career touchdowns on 86 grabs with five different teams and has averaged 16.5 yards-per-catch. Robinson joins a wideout group that currently features D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, Chris Hogan, Rashad Ross, Jarius Wright, and Torrey Smith, among others.3 days
89.Marquise Brown won't participate in OTAs (Rotoworld) Ravens first-round WR Marquise Brown (foot) will not participate in OTAs. Analysis: Brown is still recovering from Lisfranc surgery. It's a minor concern, but the Ravens are just being cautious here. Lisfranc issues are one of the scariest injuries for wide receivers and playmakers who need to use their feet to make sudden cuts. Along with Brown, third-round WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) is expected to be limited next week when OTAs get underway.3 days
90.BAL takes flier on 29-year-old Michael F... (Rotoworld) Ravens agreed to terms with WR Michael Floyd, formerly of the Redskins.3 days
91.Browns sign RB D'Ernest Johnson (Rotoworld) Browns signed RB D'Ernest Johnson, formerly of the AAF's Orlando Apollos. Analysis: Johnson was second in the AAF in rushing with 372 yards at the time of its collapse. He also led the league in yards-per-carry with a 5.8 mark, totaling a 64-372-2 rushing line. Johnson flashed in the passing game as well, compiling a 22-220-1 line there. He links back up with QB Garrett Gilbert, who also signed with the Browns after starting for the Apollos.3 days
92.Mike Gillislee: Works out for Jags (RotoWire) Gillislee worked out for the Jaguars on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The Jacksonville backfield behind Leonard Fournette doesn't inspire much confidence, with Alfred Blue, Benny Cunningham, Thomas Rawls and fifth-round pick Ryquell Armstead currently set to duke it out for backup work. Gillislee was released by the Patriots and then Saints early last season, ultimately finishing 2018 with 16 carries for 43 yards in four games. The 28-year-old fell out of New England's backfield rotation midway through the 2017 campaign, but he did produce eight rushing touchdowns and 5.7 yards per carry in Buffalo the year prior.3 days
93.Former first-round OLB Ray lands with Ra... (Rotoworld) Ravens agreed to terms with OLB Shane Ray, formerly of the Broncos. Analysis: The former No. 23 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Ray took visits with the Colts, Raiders, and Seahawks earlier in free agency, but the Ravens now swoop in when free agents no longer affect the compensatory-pick formula. Ray engineered 12 sacks across his first two seasons, including an eight-sack sophomore campaign. But he ended up missing 13 games to injury the last two years and generated a woeful two sacks in 19 games. Ray, 26 on Saturday, will try to reboot his game in Baltimore.3 days
94.Report: MIN hasn't asked Rudolph to take... (Rotoworld) Profootballtalk reports the Vikings have not asked Kyle Rudolph to take a pay cut. Analysis: PFT also reports the Vikes have offered Rudolph a five-year extension, one that would give him a "new-money average among the highest paid tight ends in the league." As PFT alludes to, that might end up little more than an accounting trick to lower Rudolph's $7.625 million cap number for 2019. Divorce still seems to be the most likely outcome here.4 days
95.Scott Pioli on resignation: It was just ... (Rotoworld) Speaking to The Athletic about his resignation from the Falcons' front office, Scott Pioli said "it was just time." Analysis: Pioli said he wasn't fired, isn't sick and doesn't have another job lined up. "I’m fine. My family is fine," Pioli said. "This was my choice and it’s just time. Time for what, I don’t know, yet." It's possible that the former general manager had simply spent enough time playing second banana, even if it was to his good friend Thomas Dimitroff. It's also possible Pioli could be eyeing media opportunities. He was surprisingly good on television in between his Chiefs and Falcons jobs.4 days
96.Report: Patrick Peterson used masking ag... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Patrick Peterson's PED ban was for six games instead of four because his test revealed a masking agent in addition to a banned substance. Analysis: Four games is the baseline, but Peterson gets extra time for trying to manipulate the result. It's not a good look for the 28-year-old All-Pro, though he is obviously far from the only one in the NFL using such methods. Pat Pete's 2019 debut will come in Week 7 against the Giants. Either Eli Manning or Daniel Jones could get his season off on the right foot.4 days
97.Damontre Moore: Let go by Niners (RotoWire) Moore was released by the 49ers on Thursday. Analysis: Moore found an opportunity with San Francisco after his time with the San Diego Fleet of the now-defunct AAF. The 26-year-old hasn't found consistent playing time since being cut by the Giants following the 2015 season -- Moore has appeared in nine games across three clubs over the last three seasons.4 days
98.Mike Gillislee works out for Jaguars Thu... (Rotoworld) Free agent RB Mike Gillislee worked out for the Jaguars on Thursday. Analysis: The Jaguars have one of the league's least-impressive backfields behind Leonard Fournette, though Gillislee wouldn't be doing much to change that. Gillislee couldn't find a job after the Saints cut him following Week 4 last season.4 days
99.Robby Anderson: Officially signs RFA tender (RotoWire) Anderson officially signed his restricted free agent tender Thursday, Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media reports. Analysis: Though technically able to sign a deal elsewhere, the second-round tender New York assigned Anderson in February made it highly unlikely Anderson would be going anywhere this offseason. Now having officially put pen to paper, Anderson is set to embark on a contract year as one of the top targets in a Sam Darnold-led offense.4 days
100.Kitchens: Callaway has gotten more explo... (Rotoworld) Browns coach Freddie Kitchens believes second-year pro Antonio Callaway has "added some explosiveness." Analysis: "He is in good shape relative to what he was in last year during training camp," Kitchens said. It's mostly just coachspeak, though also more believable than usual in Callaway's instance since 2018 was his return to the gridiron after more than a year away due to suspensions. Callaway flashed tantalizing ability as a rookie but was also wildly mistake-prone as he was thrown into a bigger-than-expected role. He is a classic breakout candidate as a sophomore, but Odell ...
