Fantasy Impact:

There weren't a lot of surprises according to the author, except that some of the team's younger WRs were listed ahead of veterans. But it's been pretty clear the team is going with a youth movement at the position, so Brandon Coleman, who could end up as the team's WR3, and Seantavius Jones were ahead of guys like Joseph Morgan and Josh Morgan.

Bengals TE Orson Charles, the fourth-round pick from Georgia, has shown up. Gruden says he's swimming mentally just because tight ends have to learn both the run and pass game ("It's the toughest position to come in and play," OC Jay Gruden says), but he also says the guy is an eye-opener.

"Physically he's shown things that are very exciting," said Gruden, who lobes Charles's route running. "His strength is unreal."

HC Marvin Lewis has also been impressed.

"Orson has exceeded in every way my expectations," he said. "I knew he was a big, strong guy. But his ability to run and catch the ball has been impressive.”
