1. ARI - Greatness forecast for Kyler Murray

Source: NFL.com - Grant Gordon

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray will enjoy immediate NFL success in the opinion of teammate David Johnson. 'He's going to be great,' Johnson said Wednesday, June 12 on Sirius XM Radio. 'It's going to be scary for D-linemen. I remember I was just talking to Chandler (Jones), he has to kind of hesitate when he chases [Murray] down. ... People are really underestimating his ability to throw. He can throw dimes and he can throw the ball down the field, he's been throwing it deep to Christian (Kirk), to those guys in the OTAs... these defenses are going to have to definitely practice against a scrambler like him.'

As with anything, consider the source. In this case, it's the running back forecasting greatness for his rookie quarterback. Murray has incredible fantasy potential with freedom as a runner and passer in a scheme that should keep defenses off balance, especially early in the season. At this point though, it's just potential. We're excited to see if he can deliver.

2. PHI - WR DeSean Jackson embracing leadership role

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been embracing his role as a veteran and leader this offseason, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com. The 32-year-old was present for all but one session of voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) practices. 'He's done everything we've asked him to do,' receivers coach Carson Walch said. 'He's been great in the meeting room. Some of our young guys sometimes are in awe seeing DeSean Jackson in our building.'

Jackson was a fantasy WR1 with Ryan Fitzpatrick last year, but it seems the fantasy community is still underestimating him. He has reportedly already developed excellent chemistry with Wentz and should be drafted a lot earlier than he is lasting right now.

3. NO - RB Alvin Kamara has more to prove

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara will be tasked with an expanded role in 2019 with the departure of backfield mate Mark Ingram. 'I'm so anxious to see like, 'What else?'' Kamara said recently. 'You know what I'm saying? What else could I do? Where else could I line up? How else could I be successful? That's the best part of this profession for me. What's the next step you're going to take? 'Ok, he was good last year. How are you going to prove that you are what you are?''

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Kamara has a shot to be the #1 overall fantasy running back with a larger role this year. He is in a very stable offense and probably has the least risk any of the top four backs.

4. PHI - Philly will take it slow with Miles Sanders

Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB Miles Sanders will be brought along slowly in training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson, after missing all of organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp due to a hamstring injury. 'I fully expect him to come in ready, come in healthy, ready to go,' Pederson said. 'We have to get him in the mix early. Definitely have to see exactly where he is mentally from all the mental reps that he took this spring, and slowly work him into the mix and see just how he can help us on game day.'

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Sanders redraft stock has been hurt by his inability to practice and Jordan Howard's chances for relevance early in the season have gone up in direct proportion. Sanders may matter by the end of the season via injury to another Eagles back, pure talent, or the efficiency of the offense, but Howard might be the better redraft pick right now.

5. ARI - WR Christian Kirk a quick study

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk is displaying a 'good feel' for the offense under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Kirk has the highest ceiling of any receiver in what should be an explosive Cardinals offense. He has a chance to catch 100+ passes and become Kyler Murray's favorite in short order. Kirk should be on your short list of mid-round wide receiver targets.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core (elbow) has been able to participate in minicamp.

Core will be battling with Auden Tate, Josh Malone and UDFA Stanley Morgan for a roster spot that could be only a John Ross injury away from playing time. He has mainly been a special teams contributor since being selected in the sixth round in 2016.
