  Chiefs | Marquise Brown not wasting time    Sat Jun 15, 09:59 PM

  Steelers | George Pickens moving around    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR George Pickens has spent time in the slot during minicamp. 'It is great,' Pickens said. 'I'm a total receiver, so I like working in the slot just as much as I like working at outside receiver.'

Footballguys view: Pickens will be the undisputed #1 receiver, and now it sounds like new offensive coordinator will be more creative in deploying Pickens than his predecessor Matt Canada. Pickens went off at the end of the season with Mason Rudolph and should play with an even better deep passer whether Justin Fields or Russell Wilson wins the job. He might be significantly undervalued as a fourth round pick on the verge of a DJ Moore-esque leap.

  Chiefs | Xavier Worthy still unable to practice    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Xavier Worthy (hamstring) remained sidelined by a sore hamstring during minicamp.

Footballguys view: We shouldn't move Worthy down on redraft boards based on this news - his rookie uncertainty has already been priced in - but if he is still sidelined when camp opens or has a setback, we should move him down at least a few rounds and move Marquise Brown up a few. Brown could end up being a big value in 2024 drafts if Worthy isn't ready to play a big role in his rookie year.

  Giants | Malik Nabers impressing his QB    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

New York Giants WR Malik Nabers has impressed QB Daniel Jones during spring practices. 'I mean, he can do everything,' Jones said. 'There is not much that he can't do from a route-running standpoint. He's dynamic with the ball in his hands and strong, fast, explosive, catches the ball well.

Footballguys view: Nabers could easily be one of the league leaders in targets as a rookie. He is going a round later than fellow elite rookie Marvin Harrison Jr, but could have just as big an opportunity to make an impact. Harrison will catch passes from Kyler Murray, while Nabers will play with Jones and Drew Lock, so that could account for most of the difference.

  Cowboys | Jake Ferguson hopes to continue improving    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Jake Ferguson said he hopes to make a similar jump in play this upcoming season like he did from 2022 to 2023. He posted only 174 yards in 2022 but improved to 761 yards last season.

Footballguys view: 2023 second round Luke Schoonmaker is hurt again with a hamstring issue that caused him to miss OTAs. He has also already missed time with shoulder and foot injuries. Ferguson came on with the rest of the Cowboys pass offense in the second half of the season and could be a good value pick at tight end if Schoonmaker continues to struggle with injuries.

  Lions | Jake Bates expected to join DET    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Free-agent PK Jake Bates (Texans) is expected to sign with the Detroit Lions, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bates might even get the same locker he had for the UFL Michigan Panthers, who played in Ford Field this spring. Bates will be in a kicker battle with Michael Badgley, and the winner will have fantasy value because they'll kick indoors for all but three games this year, cleaning up after one of the NFL's best offenses.

  Broncos | Jarrett Stidham may have early lead    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Denver Broncos QB Jarrett Stidham appears to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job at this point, in the opinion of BroncosWire's Jon Heath.

Footballguys view: Bo Nix was drafted to be the team's quarterback of the future, but it might be best for him to sit at first so that he's better prepared for NFL defenses and fluent in Sean Payton's offense before taking the field. Whether it's Nix or Stidham starting at Seattle in Week 1, expect the Seahawks to be heavy favorites. The Broncos offense might not produce one consistent fantasy option because of the transition they are going through at quarterback, running back, and wide receiver.

  Broncos | Several players miss minicamp    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Denver Broncos TE Greg Dulcich (foot), RB Audric Estime (knee), CB Delarrin Turner-Yell (undisclosed), S Caden Sterns (undisclosed) and DE John Franklin-Myers (undisclosed) did not participate in the minicamp this week. WR Josh Reynolds was excused from the minicamp.

Footballguys view: Estime had minor knee surgery, but is expected to be ready for camp. If the issue lingers, one of Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine would take up the slack in the between the tackles running game. With Dulcich and Adam Trautman both ailing, watch out for second year tight end Lucas Krull to generate some buzz in training camp.

  Commanders | Ben Sinnott inks rookie pact    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Washington Commanders TE Ben Sinnott (Kansas State) signed a four-year contract on Friday, June 14. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Sinnott may not have an immediate fantasy impact if Zach Ertz is ready to be a starting tight end again, but the last two understudies to Ertz - Dallas Goedert and Trey McBride - appears to have benefited from playing with him. Sinnott could arrive as a top 10 fantasy tight end by the end of next season even though Kliff Kingsbury's offenses aren't known for featuring tight ends in the passing game.

  Commanders | Jayden Daniels under contract    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Washington Commanders first-round draft choice QB Jayden Daniels (Louisiana State) signed a four-year contract worth $37.7 million - including a $24.3 million signing bonus - on Friday, June 14. The deal includes a fifth-year team option.

Footballguys view: Daniels should start from day one and could be severely underrated in redraft leagues with all of the indications that new offensive coordinator is going to up the tempo and keep defenses on their toes. Daniels is going outside of the top 10 quarterbacks in early drafts but could easily finish in the top five if he stays healthy.

  Broncos | Tim Patrick firmly in Denver's plans?    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick (Achilles) is 'a great teammate' that head coach the team has 'an idea or vision for,' according to head coach Sean Payton earlier this week.'(He brings) those intangibles. I do know and obviously have seen healthy tape. Granted I wasn't here, but I kind of have an idea or vision for the player. Then all the other things that he brings relative to his competitiveness, his versatility. He's a great teammate. I think he's an important part of the locker room, so it's good to see him more and be smart with that,' Payton said.

Footballguys view: Patrick took a pay cut down the veteran minimum, so he's not a sure thing to make the team, but his experience should get him a spot on the roster. If Courtland Sutton is dealt before the season, Patrick could even start opposite free agent signing Josh Reynolds. The Broncos wide receiver group is a bit underwhelming with or without a resurgent Patrick, which will be part of the challenge for Sean Payton and rookie quarterback Bo Nix.

  Seahawks | Seattle to get more creative with DK Metcalf?    Fri Jun 14, 01:26 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf is a 'big, imposing, fast, powerful receiver' who the new coaching staff wants to get the ball to 'a lot' and make a 'moving target,' according to head coach Mike Macdonald.

Footballguys view: It sounds like they are viewing Metcalf as a run after catch threat in addition to his already formidable game downfield at the catch point. The Seahawks pass offense should be more aggressive under new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb. Metcalf could be undervalued at his current third round ADP.

  Rams | Coach happy with Blake Corum    Fri Jun 14, 12:11 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Blake Corum was a standout performer during offseason workouts, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Kyren Williams is still the clear starter and seems to be over the foot issue that limited him in OTAs, but watch to see if Williams has any setbacks in camp. It sounds like the Rams offense wouldn't lose much if they have to turn to Corum. He's an excellent pick in the second half of best ball drafts.

  Panthers | Diontae Johnson open to extension    Fri Jun 14, 12:11 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Diontae Johnson is entering the final year of his contract but said he is open to signing an extension with the team.

Footballguys view: Johnson might leave some money on the table if he doesn't let the free agency market set his price in an ever-rising wide receiver salary explosion, but the small trade compensation the Steelers got for him could indicate a lack of interest in him around the league. He has a chance to change that with a good season. The Panthers will tell us what they think of how things are going with Johnson by their action or lack thereof to explore an extension before or during the season.

  Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence receives extension    Fri Jun 14, 12:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with the Jaguars Thursday, June 13, worth $275 million. The deal includes $200 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Lawrence moves to the top of the quarterback contract list in per year compensation. Where quarterbacks fit in on the pay scale is more a function of when they sign their extensions that where they fit in the quarterback rankings. The Jaguars are hopeful that Lawrence's best football is ahead of him, and they are probably right.

  Raiders | Aidan O'Connell works with starters Wednesday    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Las Vegas Raiders QB Aidan O'Connell received a majority of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Wednesday, June 12, according to The Athletic's Tashan Reed.

Footballguys view: O'Connell and Gardner Minshew are in a battle to start for the Raiders. Both should get ample opportunity to prove they can start, but O'Connell should win if the competition is close. Minshew's two-year, $25 million deal was a big raise from the $3.5 million he got from the Colts last year, and indicates the Raiders see him as "bridge starter" quality. They wanted to bring in competition for O'Connell, who was not bad for a third-day pick rookie last year, but isn't the team's quarterback of the future - yet. However, if he can win the job and gel with the offensive weapons, the Raiders could open up a promising window of cap flexibility with a starting quarterback on a rookie contract. Unfortunately, according Tashan Reed from The Athletic, neither quarterback has looked good in OTA practices.

  Bears | Rome Odunze wants to break rookie record    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze said he would like to break Los Angeles Rams WR Puka Nacua's rookie record of 1,486 yards in a season, according to The Chicago Sun-Times' Jason Lieser.

Footballguys view: We like for receivers to have lofty goals and opinions of their abilities, but Odunze will have trouble doing that with D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen also running routes in the Chicago offense. Odunze is the cheapest of the three in fantasy drafts by 15-20 picks, so he might be the best investment in redraft leagues, banking on the same rookie-rookie chemistry that got Tank Dell out of the gate hot in Houston last year.

  Bills | Khalil Shakir should be fine    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Khalil Shakir (undisclosed) should be fine despite suffering an injury during the minicamp this week, according to general manager Brandon Beane.

Footballguys view: The Bills wide receiver group doesn't have a clear #1 with Shakir, free agent signing Curtis Samuel, and #33 overall pick Keon Coleman all vying for targets. Shakir's injury is probably nothing, but we'll check back in next month when camp opens to make sure it is not limiting him. Shakir is the cheapest of the top three Bills wide receivers in fantasy drafts and was a favorite target of Josh Allen in the postseason.

  Raiders | Tre Tucker turning heads    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tre Tucker has impressed the team with his maturity and performance this spring, according to wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett and head coach Antonio Pierce.'One guy that obviously stood out this offseason; Tre Tucker. Different dude. Looks different, acts different, runs different, catches the ball different. Don't look at the size. Don't mention that. Watch him play. He's the biggest guy out there. Had a hell of an offseason. Came back right after the offseason program and the Super Bowl, got in here and started working. Was here every day. Blazing, we know about the speed, but everything we talked about working on, he took that to another level. You can see the look in his eye of a confident player. Of a guy that wants to constantly get better,' Pierce said.

Footballguys view: Tucker is going to have trouble mattering in fantasy leagues with Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, and #13 overall pick Brock Bowers ahead of him in the target pecking order, but his deep speed can add a dimension that increases the value of the entire offense. He should be on your radar in deep dynasty leagues.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson showing some growth    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson could earn more pre-snap responsibilities in his second year under offensive coordinator Todd Monken, according to recent comments from quarterbacks coach Tee Martin.'It takes him understanding how we're blocking things up front to get us to the best run and the best pass for whatever coverage we're facing. He's accepted it and done a heck of a job of getting us into the right play, and today was probably the best day in a long time of him really just having the freedom to do what he wants to do. We saw some really good plays and some positive gains with him doing that today,' Martin said.

Footballguys view: The Ravens pass offense improved as the season progressed in the first year under Monken, and that was without Mark Andrews for the last third of the season. Zay Flowers will be even better in year two and Rashod Bateman will be healthier. Jackson is going as QB4 in fantasy drafts, but can easily finish as QB1, like he did in his second season in the league.

  Chiefs | KC to push ball downfield more    Fri Jun 14, 10:53 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said the team will push the ball downfield more in 2024. 'This is probably the most comfortable I think I've felt of just being able to not let something affect me,'' Mahomes said. 'When you go up against [Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo in practice], you're not going to be right 100% of the time, and there's been times where I've lost on blitzes and Spags gets me with the new pressure that he's working on, and I think it's just being able to get the ball out of my hand, get it to the checkdown or wherever that is and then live to play another play.''

Footballguys view: The addition of Marquise Brown and Xavier Worthy in the offseason should allow Mahomes to fulfill this promise. Worthy has missed OTAs with a hamstring injury, but is expected to be okay for camp. Brown has only averaged 13 games played a year in his five season career, but right now he is probably the better durability bet of the two new speed wideouts in best ball drafts.

  Rams | Jordan Whittington a quick study    Fri Jun 14, 01:47 AM

Los Angeles Rams WR Jordan Whittington has been 'doing a great job' learning the offense and applying that knowledge to the playing field, according to offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur.

Footballguys view: Whittington is a skilled and tough receiver, but fell to the sixth round because he doesn't have standout speed or quickness. He's similar to Ben Skowronek, who has been a useful player in the Rams offense at times, but not very productive or able to stand out in the passing game.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris was present for two of the three days of the team's minicamp this week, but he did not participate in any of the sessions. Head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters after practice on Wednesday, June 12, that Harris had no health issues and downplayed his lack of participation by pointing out minicamp is more about learning about the players he is less familiar with.

Footballguys view: Tomlin explained his reasoning, so we're just left to see what Harris looks like in training camp and the preseason. The Steelers declined his fifth-year option, so Harris is in the final year of his contract with the team. He will have plenty of motivation to play his best football in 2024.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill reportedly agreed to a restructured contract that converted his base salary to a signing bonus and lowered his salary cap number from $15.7 million to $6.8 million.

Footballguys view: Hill has a larger cap number next year (around $18 million) but the Saints will figure that out later. For now, Hill remains the Swiss Army knife he's always been. Fantasy GMs can use him as a gadget player where league software may consider him a TE or a QB.

Buffalo Bills second-round draft choice WR Keon Coleman (Florida State) signed a four-year contract worth a reported $10.074 million - including a $4.146 million signing bonus - on Thursday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Coleman is a big-bodied receiver that had a first-round grade. The Bills get him early in the second round, and he's there to become a favorite target for QB Josh Allen. The rookie will have a learning curve, but his sheer size and 'my ball' mentality means he could be a red-zone threat. We like Coleman as a WR4/flex play with upside in 2024.

Footballguys view: The Patriots don't have a great group of wide receivers, but Polk is there to build for the future. Polk was a secondary option in the Huskies offense, but he made plays for QB Michael Penix as a slot or outside receiver. We like Polk's hand strength, versatility, and ability to make difficult catches in contested situations. We like him more in dynasty formats where you can take the long view (something needed for this offense).

Footballguys view: Kamara is likely looking for more guaranteed money. There's only $1 million remaining in guarantees on his contract, but Kamara is scheduled to make around $18 million this season.

Footballguys view: Edwards could lead the charge (pun intended) for the offense this year. Harbaugh loves to run the ball early and often, so Edwards and JK Dobbins have an opportunity to do what they were supposed to do in Baltimore. We see a healthy Edwards as an RB2 or flex option for Fantasy GMs out there.

Footballguys view: Quinn may not be ready, but that's just coach speak. It's likely to be no.2 overall pick Jayden Daniels. He's a dazzling player who can make an instant impact in this league. Mariota is a nice veteran backup, but he lacks the upside that Daniels provides from day one.
