Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters that starting TE Tyler Kroft suffered a broken foot during yesterday’s OTAs and will need surgery.
Tyler Kroft’s timeframe for recovery is 3-4 months, source said. That puts him right up against the start of the season and raises the possibility of beginning the season on the PUP list.
Kroft was the designated starter at TE on his new team in Buffalo but was only in streaming consideration heading into the fantasy season. If he misses significant time, Jason Croom will take over as the TE target for sophomore QB Josh Allen.
Michael Floyd, the 13th overall pick of the 2012 draft, will add competition to an extremely young wide receiver group. This is his fifth different team in as many years. Floyd caught 10 passes for 100 yards and one TD for Washington last season.
This is Floyd's fifth uniform in the past four seasons. After a decent four-year start in Arizona where he racked up 209 receptions for 3,293 yards and 19 touchdowns, he faded with just 37 catches for 488 yards and five scores post-2015. Floyd is landing in a decent spot to make the Ravens roster and could be fantasy relevant in larger leagues.
Jets WR Robby Anderson has officially signed his restricted free agent tender (~$3 million).
Important year ahead for Anderson, who can cash in in a big way if he delivers in 2019.
Anderson averaged 11.2 PPR points last season and ended as WR38 on the year. He's the top guy in the Jets WR room, and with a more confident Sam Darnold throwing the ball, should produce in 2019. He's currently WR28 in John Paulson's preliminary WR rankings.
