The San Francisco 49ers and Robbie Gould remain in a standoff regarding the kicker's future with the franchise.
It doesn't sound like Gould is ready to acquiesce quietly to the franchise tag and play out the season just yet.
"It's a complicated situation," Gould told NBC Chicago. "The way I've kind of approached it is, I want to spend time with my family. And I let my agent handle it, and if anything comes up that I have to make a decision or be in the know, he'll call me and let me know. But right now there's nothing to really know, and I'm just enjoying being home and being in Chicago.
"I'm at a point in my career where my family is what's going to dictate the decisions that I make."
With Chicago's kicking woes, it would seem they would love to have Robbie Gould back in a Bears uniform, but the 49ers have been unwilling to deal him. Gould and the 49ers have until July 15 to strike a long-term solution. For now, Gould sits as our sixth-ranked kicker, projected to put up 124 fantasy points in 2019.
[Russell] Wilson pointed to Metcalf's football knowledge when asked what about the rookie wide receiver has stood out most.
"Everybody knows about his ability to run and everything else, and jump and catch and all that," Wilson said. "You guys have been talking about that for months, but I think more than anything else, it's his brain and how he processes information and how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent. He really understands the game really well. He takes coaching really well. He gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything that everybody was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more."
Rookie WRs can be hit or miss for fantasy purposes, but it seems that DK Metcalf is adjusting well to the NFL so far. He's shown speed and swift movement for a player of his size and has impressed the Seahawks staff with his cognitive ability to this point. He could find himself in a battle with David Moore for the WR2 spot behind Tyler Lockett and is currently being drafted in the ninth round as WR47.
Multiple sources say that Sony Michel is progressing quickly since his most recent arthroscopic knee surgery and has been running full tilt. The 2nd year RB has also been spending considerable time at @TB12sports like so many before - and after - have/will.
The Patriots backfield is perpetually a tough one to navigate and this impending season is no different. However, if we look at 2018 Sony Michel led the Patriots RBs in total touches with 216, averaging over five carries a game more than teammate James White. And that was in just 13 games. New England also added rookie Damien Harris to the RB room which clouds things up a bit and could cut into Michel's workload this year. Michel's ADP is currently RB23, with White at RB25 and Harris being drafted as RB41.
