1.Patrick Queen: Set for three-down role (RotoWire) Coach John Harbaugh expects to utilize Queen in a three-down role in both base and sub- defensive packages, Todd Karpovich of Sports Illustrated reports. Analysis: The 20-year-old was selected 28th overall in April's draft by Baltimore, so it's not a major surprise he'll be playing a significant role in 2020.

4.Dynasty | Olabisi Johnson listed as starter (Dynasty League Football) Vikings receiver OlaBisi Johnson is projected to start across from veteran Adam Thielen Analysis: It's not a huge surprise as Johnson played often in 2019 and finished with 31 receptions, 294 yards and three touchdowns. But at this point it's only a projection. The Vikings added Tajae Sharpe during the off-season who could present significant competition and then selected rookie Justin Jefferson (LSU) in the first round of the NFL Draft. With Stefon Diggs now in Buffalo, it remains an area of interest just what the Vikings would do at... (More)4 hours
5.Dynasty | Jarrad Davis adds weight (Dynasty League Football) Detroit linebacker Jarrad Davis has added 20 lbs. of muscle while reducing his body fat percentage Analysis: Davis wasn't a slouch before but he's a rocked up 248 lbs. now and he dropped his body fat by an impressive 5%, and it shows. Davis was having a solid season until an ankle injury ended his campaign in week 14. He didn't play in the first two weeks as well, missing a total of five games overall. His 2019 ended with 63 total tackles, two sacks and three forced fumbles. The middle linebacker was labeled as a cornerstone pla... (More)4 hours
6.49ers | Jerick McKinnon to have third-down opportunities (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon will have opportunities on third downs in 2020, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. Analysis: McKinnon hasn't played either of the last two seasons, but he was widely viewed as one of the best pass-catching running backs when he was signed as a free agent following the 2017 season with the Minnesota Vikings. Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman are likely to begin the 2020 season with much higher fantasy value, but McKinnon could emerge by midseason if able to stay healthy.5 hours
7.Jake Butt: Healthy this offseason (RotoWire) Butt is ready for a full workout and practice plan this offseason, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Analysis: The 2017 fifth-round pick has suffered three ACL tears since 2014, and he missed the entire 2019 season after having "minor" knee surgery in late August. With only three regular-season NFL appearances to his name, Butt faces an uphill battle to earn a spot on the Broncos' 53-man roster.5 hours
8.Colts | Parris Campbell able to learn from lost rookie season (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell is focusing on the things he was able to learn as a rookie in 2019, rather than the time he missed due to injury. 'I am going in with the mindset that it's a new year,' Campbell said. 'I have kind of transformed myself into a pro, and I have been able to see at least one season - maybe it's not all 16 games, but I've seen just from watching and being in it, just getting the experience of being an NFL player. Just having that experience has helped me a lot.' Analysis: Campbell finished his rookie campaign with just 18 receptions for 127 yards and one touchdown across seven games. He'll be hoping...

11.Browns | David Njoku ready to move past 2019 (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku said recently he's excited about starting a new season and moving past a 2019 campaign in which both he and the team fell well short of expectations. 'That's what I'm most excited about, just the opportunity,' Njoku said. 'Obviously, this past year wasn't (what) we all planned or had in mind, but it's a great learning experience. I'm very excited to come back with my teammates and give it all we got.' Analysis: Njoku, the 29th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, totaled just five receptions, 41 yards and one touchdown across four games amid an injury-riddled 2019 season. He posted career-highs of 56 ... (More)7 hours
12.49ers | George Kittle wants receiver money (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle and the team remain far apart in contract negotiations for an extension. Kittle's agent says a 'tight-end deal' is a non-starter in those negotiations. Analysis: Kittle has been named to back-to-back Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro for the first time in 2019. He has topped 1,000 yards each of the last two seasons with a total of 10 touchdowns. He remains the 49ers' clear No. 1 option in the passing game and it's safe to expect the Niners to find a way to retain his services at any cost.7 hours
13.Broncos | Jake Butt healthy, ready to perform (thehuddle) Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) said Friday, May 29, he is doing well after missing the entire 2019 campaign following knee surgery and has been working out on his own. He also said he's ready to prove the team right for waiting on him after playing just three games since being drafted in 2017. 'It's not a guarantee - they're not telling me I'm making the team by any stretch or rolling out the red carpet,' Butt said. I still have to go out there and work and earn it. ... But the fact they're standing by me and giving me an opportunity, it obviously means the world to me and I'm going to try and go out there and prove them right ... (More)8 hours
14.NFL | Cam Newton content to wait (thehuddle) Free agent QB Cam Newton (Panthers) has been greeted by a cool late-spring market, and a source said he is expected to wait until teams resume on-field workouts to give them a chance to meet with him and evaluate his health in person. Sources also added that they remain uncertain on whether Newton would accept a backup role. Analysis: Newton, when healthy and owning a starting gig, has been fantasy gold, and while his shoulder and foot checked out in March physical, legit NFL starting gigs seemingly are almost all spoken for as the calendar flips to June. He's worth a late-round flier in two-QB leagues only right now, but that, of... (More)9 hours
15.Panthers | Opportunity at hand for Teddy Bridgewater (thehuddle) Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater is entering a season as his team's unquestioned starter for the first time since 2015, and head coach Matt Ruhle said he jumped at the chance to give Bridgewater the opportunity. 'I believe so wholeheartedly in who he is as a quarterback,' Rhule said Friday, May 29, during an appearance on NFL Network. 'I believe in his abilities, I believe in his arm strength, I believe in his accuracy, I believe in his decision-making but, beyond that, I know he's going to make everyone else that much better.' Analysis: Bridgewater went 5-0 as a fill-in starter last season for the injured Drew Brees, but he ... (More)9 hours
16.Cowboys | Coach expecting Dak Prescott (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has yet to sign his exclusive franchise tag and has not been participating in the team's virtual offseason workout program. But head coach Mike McCarthy says he has little concern about Prescott. 'He's involved in a business situation and I have full confidence that he'll be ready to go,' McCarthy said on a recent media conference call. '... There has been communication.

17.49ers | George Kittle's agent aiming high (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's agent says he isn't just aiming for his client to become the league's highest-paid tight end, perhaps eyeing WR2 money. 'I don't care about the tight end market,' Jack Bechta, told NFL Network recently. 'I'm being paid to do a George Kittle deal.' Analysis: Kittle, who's locked in to be a top-three fantasy tight end for the third straight seasons, remains the Niners' unquestioned top offensive weapon and almost assuredly will reset the tight end market -- and beyond. 10 hours
18.Cardinals | Patrick Peterson could sit out 2020 season (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson said that battling Type 2 diabetes could impact his decision whether or not to play in the 2020 season if the NFL returns to action during the coronavirus pandemic. He said that he would be comfortable playing in such a situation if proper protocols are followed, such as temperature checks and wearing masks and gloves.14 hours
19.George Kittle and 49ers not close in contract talks (FantasyPros) Reports out of San Francisco are that TE George Kittle and the 49ers remain "far apart" on a contract extension. Analysis: Kittle is entering the last year of his rookie deal and is set to become a free agent after the 2020 season. He'll make a little over $2M this year, and is in line for a big payday. Whether Kittle commands tight end or wide receiver-type money is the key. His agent Jack Bechta said, a "tight end deal is a non-starter." For reference, the highest paid TE in 2019 was Jimmy Graham at $10M, while the highest paid WR in 2019 was Julio Jones at $22M. ... (More)23 hours
20.Dee Ford fully healthy after undergoing knee surgery this off-season (FantasyPros) DL Dee Ford is fully healthy after undergoing "relatively minor" knee surgery this off-season. Analysis: Ford missed five games In 2019 due to hamstring and quadricep injuries. He is in a "much better place health wise than he was last year," said Rapoport. Ford should be all systems for before the start of the NFL season. The 29-year-old was made available this off-season by the 49ers, but there has been no talk of a possible deal. Ford racked up 14 tackles and 6.5 sacks across 11 games in 2019. He will most likely be in a situational role in 2020 and is mainly an ... (More)1 day
21.Dynasty | Antonio Gibson will be involved (Dynasty League Football) Redskins offensive coordinator Scott Turner mentioned rookie Antonio Gibson when talking about creativity on offense Analysis: Gibson, DLF's RB33, has been a fast-riser in dynasty drafts after being a third round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. He possesses an intriguing blend of speed, power and size and it was unclear as to whether the Swiss army knife player would be listed as a receiver or running back. It appears as though the question has been answered and he'll slot-in with Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Bryce Love at runn... (More)1 day
22.Dynasty | Gardner Minshew receives support (Dynasty League Football) Jaguars new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden says sophomore quarterback Gardner Minshew has the "intangibles you want in a quarterback." Analysis: The full quote was: "He has shown a skillset where he can sit in a pocket, step up, make things happen outside the pocket. He’s accurate, he’s tough and obviously he’s a great leader so he’s got the intangibles you want in a quarterback." Minshew, DLF's QB27, saw action in 14 games and sparked the Jaguars early following Nick Foles' injury early in 2... (More)1 day
23.Dynasty | Justice Hill still in the rotation (Dynasty League Football) Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh said all four running backs will have a role. Analysis: Yet another deep RBBC. Hill has seen his dynasty ADP (193) plummet to a career low following the Ravens selection of J.K. Dobbins during the 2020 NFL Draft. In 2019, he was a popular sleeper selection as a rookie and he went on to produce 225 yards and two touchdowns on 58 attempts, also chipping in eight receptions for 70 yards. His value came more at the hands of the aging Mark Ingram and inside-grinder Gus Edwards not carrying the same dynamic as Hill but the addition of Dobbins would seem to lock him in to anothe...

24.Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott among leaders in long runs (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for at least 10 yards on 38 carries during the 2019 regular season, which ranked fourth in the NFL. Analysis: Elliott posted the third 1,000-yard season of his career in 2019 and also finished with 12 touchdowns. He has been one of the top running backs in the NFL since being drafted and likely will be selected in the first round of all fantasy leagues. 1 day
25.Browns | Nick Chubb among leaders in long runs (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed for at least 10 yards on 39 carries during the 2019 regular season, which ranked third in the NFL. Analysis: Chubb shared playing time with Kareem Hunt but received most of the carries last season and should receive most of the work again in 2020. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues. 1 day
26.Titans | Derrick Henry broke a lot of long runs (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for at least 10 yards on 42 carries during the 2019 regular season, which ranked second in the NFL. Analysis: Henry was one of the top running backs in the NFL in 2019 and should continue to see plenty of carries this upcoming season. He likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds of fantasy drafts and will be a must-start option each week.1 day
27.Dolphins | Two candidates for No. 2 TE job (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins TE Durham Smythe and TE Michael Roberts are expected to compete for the No. 2 tight end job during training camp. 1 day
28.Dolphins | Albert Wilson may be top slot option (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson appears to be the leading candidate for the slot receiver job this upcoming season. Analysis: Wilson has dealt with injuries over the last several season and finished 2019 with 351 yards and one touchdown. He could be a reliable target in the passing game if he can stay healthy but probably is not more than a late round pick in fantasy drafts.1 day
29.Dolphins | Elandon Roberts could be used at FB (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins LB Elandon Roberts could be a candidate for the fullback role this upcoming season if the team does not want to keep a fullback on their final roster. 1 day

31.Dolphins | Miami expected to use two RBs (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins RBs Jordan Howard and Matt Breida are both expected to receive solid playing time this upcoming season, but it is not known which one will start. Analysis: The Dolphins added Howard and Breida this offseason and probably will use the preseason to determine their roles. Both have had success in the past but have also dealt with injuries. Fantasy players can consider Howard and Breida No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running backs.1 day

35.Bills | Josh Allen works out with pass catchers (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen worked out with several of the team's pass catchers in Florida Thursday, May 28, including WR Stefon Diggs. RB Devin Singletary, WRs John Brown, Isaiah McKenzie, Nick Easley, WR Gabriel Davis and Isaiah Hodgins and TEs Dawson Knox, Tommy Sweeney, Jason Croom and Nate Becker were among the players participating in the workout. Analysis: The Bills have not been able to practice this offseason, so Allen and his teammates have begun working out together. Allen is coming off a solid 2019 season and should be helped with the addition of Diggs. He should be at least a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and ... (More)1 day
36.Dee Ford: Healthy after knee procedure (RotoWire) Ford is fully healthy after undergoing "a pretty extensive cleanup" procedure on his knee shortly after Super Bowl LIV, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The 29-year-old missed time down the stretch with hamstring and quadriceps injuries throughout the season -- though he played in all three playoff games -- and he also dealt with knee tendinitis that led to the surgery. Ford played in 11 games last year but was limited to 232 defensive snaps, but he still recorded 6.5 sacks. He could remain in a situational role in 2020 with Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead returning as the starting defensive ends, but Ford still figures to be ... (More)1 day
37.Patrick Peterson: Wants to stay in Arizona (RotoWire) Peterson said he hasn't discussed an extension with the Cardinals, though he'd love to stay with one team for his entire career, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Analysis: Peterson will turn 30 in July, entering the final season of a five-year, $70 million extension. He opened 2019 with a six-game suspension and didn't play up to his usual standard upon first rejoining the lineup, but he then closed out the year with five pass defenses and an interception over the final three weeks. Cardinals GM Steve Keim suggested in February that the team prefers to keep Peterson around beyond 2020.1 day
38.Justice Hill: Still in team's plans, maybe (RotoWire) Coach John Harbaugh said he expects Hill to take a big step forward in his second pro season, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Analysis: It's a reasonable expectation, but even an impressive offseason won't necessarily give the 2019 fourth-round pick a path to playing time in a backfield that also holds Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. It sounds like Harbaugh may carry four tailbacks on the 53-man roster instead of his usual three, especially if Hill and Edwards prove useful on special teams. Hill played 187 snaps on offense and 97 on special teams last year, averaging 3.9 yards on 58 carries, 8.8 yards on eight recept... (More)1 day
39.Chris Jones: Not close to new contract (RotoWire) Jones and the Chiefs haven't made much progress on a long-term contract, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The Chiefs gave Jones a franchise tag in mid-March, setting up a July 15 deadline for a multi-year deal. The 2016 second-round pick hasn't signed his tender, so he may consider holding out if the big contract doesn't happen. Jones is a top-five interior pass rusher by any estimate, with his past three seasons yielding 31 sacks, 62 QB hits, 16 pass defenses and seven forced fumbles. He'll have a solid argument to expect around $40 million guaranteed and a $20 million average annual value.1 day
40.Dak Prescott: In touch with new coach (RotoWire) Prescott has been in contact with new Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy even though he has yet to sign his franchise tag offer or agree to a contract extension, Jonny Auping of DallasCowboys.com reports. "There has been communication," McCarthy confirmed. "This is the way these business situations go sometimes and [I] respect that. I have confidence that it will work out." Analysis: Under normal circumstances, Prescott being in contract limbo would have prevented him from participating in on-field activities with his teammates, but at the moment all he's missing are some virtual meetings. The fact that he's stayed in touch with McCarthy su... (More)1 day
41.49ers | Dee Ford had extensive surgery (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers DE Dee Ford said Friday, May 29, that he underwent 'pretty extensive' surgery to try to relieve tendinitis in his left knee a couple of weeks following Super Bowl LIV in February. Ford added that due to the virtual offseason, he hasn't had many chances to test his knee in 'football' situations and was unable to give a clear picture on the timeline for the completion of his rehab.1 day
42.Redskins | Dwayne Haskins finished strong (thehuddle) Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins ranked 10th among quarterbacks in terms of Pro Football Focus passing grade over Weeks 9-17 of the 2019 season. Analysis: Fantasy-wise, though, it didn't amount to much as he only had two games of 200-plus passing yards and three multiple-TD-pass games during that stretch. Things should be better in Haskins' sophomore season with a better cast of weapons, but don't expect much more than a low-end QB2 season.1 day
43.Colts | Philip Rivers feeds off run game (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers brings a strong play-action game to the team's attack, and head coach Frank Reich says the Colts plan to take full advantage. 'In 2013 when (current Colts offensive coordinator) Nick (Sirianni) and I were first there, (Rivers) had statistically one of his better years and we ran the ball well that year,' Reich said. 'Then you go back and look at the years with LT (LaDainian Tomlinson) and how effective he was in the passing game. He's always been great in the passing game, but I don't think there's any doubt he's been most efficient and played his best football when he has a good running game.' ... (More)1 day
44.Panthers | Eli Apple contract terms (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers CB Eli Apple's one-year contract with the team is worth $3 million, according to a source. Also included is a $750 signing bonus.1 day
45.Chris Jones: 'not much traction' on long-term deal with the Chiefs (FantasyPros) DT Chris Jones hasn't signed his franchise tender and there hasn't been much "traction" on a long-term extension, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. Analysis: Jones and the Chiefs have until July 15th to agree on a long-term deal. He's kept in touch with the Chiefs through virtual meetings, but talks of a new contract have stalled. "Not much traction on contract front but both sides have until July 15. Market for high-end DTs is $20-plus-million per year," per Fowler. The 25-year-old has been dominant for the Chiefs, recording 24.5 sacks in his last two seasons. The Chiefs ... (More)1 day
46.Seahawks | Carlos Hyde contract terms (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde's one-year contract with the team has a base value of $2.75 million, which includes a $750,000 signing bonus, $1.5 million base salary and $500,000 per-game roster bonuses.

48.Nick O'Leary placed on reserve/non-football list (FantasyPros) Nick O'Leary, who joined the Raiders in April, was placed on the NFL's reserve/non-football list rendering him illegible for the upcoming season, and could signal the end of his professional career. It is not immediately clear if O'Leary suffered an injury while working out on his own, or if he simply wants to retire. To fill his place on the roster the Raiders re-signed tight end Paul Butler Analysis: O'Leary, who will turn 28 in August, played five seasons in the NFL as a member of four different teams, catching 53 passes for 668 yards with four touchdowns. The R... (More)1 day

52.DeAndre Hopkins believes he's the best WR in the NFL (FantasyPros) New Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins was on the Jalen & Jacoby show on Thursday and said, "I definitely think I'm the best [WR in the NFL]." Analysis: Hopkins went on to state that other top WRs Michael Thomas and Julio Jones both benefit from playing with Pro Bowl quarterbacks Drew Brees and Matt Ryan throughout their entire careers. But Hopkins, who's caught passes from 10 different QBs since being drafted by the Texans in 2013, doesn't let that cloud his mind. He said, "I don't complain. I don't make excuses. I go out there and work." Hopkins reiterated his excitemen... (More)1 day

54.Matt Judon: Inks franchise tag (RotoWire) Judon signed his franchise tag Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Judon's decision to sign the franchise tag suggests that he won't opt for a holdout even if the Ravens don't sign him to a long-term deal prior to the July 15 deadline. As such, Judon will carry a sizable $15.83 million contract for the 2020 campaign. The pass rusher is coming off an solid 2019 season in which he notched multiple career-high marks, including 9.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and 33 QB hits, to go with a solid 54 total tackles through 16 games.2 days
55.Bobby McCain: Rehab nearing conclusion (RotoWire) McCain (shoulder) said Thursday that he's "coming along very well" in his recovery from November surgery, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. Analysis: McCain also disclosed that his procedure carries an expected recovery timetable of between five and six months of rehab. Barring any setbacks, that puts him on track for training camp and to kick off the regular season. Though he'll face competition from third-round rookie safety Brandon Jones, McCain is the likely favorite to begin 2020 as a starter opposite Eric Rowe.2 days
56.Quincy Enunwa: Intends to continue career (RotoWire) Enunwa (neck) is not considering retirement despite battling a career-threatening injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports. Analysis: Enunwa's neck injury limited him to just one game in 2019 (12 combined regular-season games since 2017), and Cimini now reports that the Jets have ruled him out for the 2020 campaign. Despite the severity of his injury -- a timetable for the soon-to-be 28-year-old's return remaining undisclosed -- Enunwa relayed that he hopes to retake the field in the future. "If I'm capable of playing, then that's what I'll do," Enunwa said. He carries a fully guaranteed $6 million salary for 2020, and in 2021 he'll have ... (More)2 days
57.Matt Judon officially signs franchise tag with the Ravens (FantasyPros) LB Matt Judon officially signed his franchise tag with the Ravens.

The 27-year-old is currently 53rd among all linebackers in the latest expert consensus rankings.2 days
58.Saints | Michael Thomas ridiculously good on slants (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has been targeted 118 times on slant routes over the course of his four-year career and caught 97 of them for 988 yards - good for a success rate of 85 percent.2 days
59.Hayes Pullard: Hanging up cleats (RotoWire) Pullard accepted a position with USC's football staff on Thursday, effectively announcing his retirement from the NFL. Analysis: A 2015 seventh-round pick, Pullard logged two seasons each with the Jaguars and Chargers.

60.Dolphins | Albert Wilson quicker than ever? (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson is one of several Dolphins players working out with longtime trainer Pete Bommarito this offseason, and Bommarito says it has been Wilson's best. 'Wait until you see him run,' Bommarito said. 'This is the fastest I have seen him. Not only does he have that bad-ass shifty side and quick feet, but you look at his second gear and he looks spectacular. You will see the second gear this year.' Analysis: Wilson caught 43 of 62 targets for 351 yards and one touchdown across 13 games in 2019 after being limited to just seven games in 2018. He'd likely benefit from rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa getting the startin... (More)2 days
61.Eli Apple: Finds home in Carolina (RotoWire) Apple agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday. Analysis: Apple previously agreed to sign with the Raiders in March, but after having been unable to finalize a deal in Las Vegas, the veteran corner will now link up with the Panthers. The 24-year-old fills a key void on Carolina's roster, as the team didn't previously have much in the way of proven options behind Donte Jackson.

Analysis: Freeman would certainly have an easier path to a prominent role if he signs with the Bucs. He hasn't played a 16-game season since 2016 and will need to re-prove himself wherever he signs.

Williams will receive an upfront pro-rated signing bonus from San Francisco to help make up for the fact that he didn't receive a paycheck in 2019 after sitting out the season in Washington.

73.Ravens | Justice Hill to still have a role (thehuddle) Baltimore Ravens RB Justice Hill is expected to take a big jump in his second year in the NFL, according to head coach John Harbaugh Thursday, May 28.

McKissic. Analysis: "You want to be as unpredictable as possible," Turner elaborated. "Guys that are able to do more things give you more options."
