Sanders is the most underrated piece to the Bills offense from a real-life and fantasy perspective. The Bills were aggressive in their pursuit of Sanders this offseason, immediately targeting him after his release from the Saints.
Some expect Davis to step into John Brown’s role from last season, but all of the Bills’ actions in the offseason were not of a team confident that Davis was ready to step into an enormous role. Allen often looked for Sanders during spring workouts, trying to establish a rapport with him through meaningful reps.
It may behoove fantasy managers to grab Emmanuel Sanders now while his ADP is somewhat depressed. Right now he's going two rounds after Gabriel Davis which should begin to even out once more training camp hype appears.
Kroft has been one of the bigger surprises of the spring. He has seen a lot of time with the starting unit and tight end is a position battle to watch in training camp. Kroft could beat out Chris Herndon for the job if Herndon does not shake out of the funk he was in last year.
Right now both Tyler Kroft and Chris Herndon are free in both best ball and redraft leagues. Neither is recommended for redraft but at their current ADPs (Kroft: 216.0, Herndon: 211.6), whoever emerges at the end of training camp is worth a dart throw.
Top rookie WR D'Wayne Eskridge continues to miss practices with a toe issue. Coach Pete Carroll calls that unfortunate for the important time he is missing in the new #Seahawks offense
It's not great that D'Wayne Eskridge is missing time while a new offense is being installed in Seattle. He has an opportunity to be the WR3 for the Seahawks, but if he can't go Freddy Swain would be the next man up.
The #Jets and WR Jamison Crowder have finalized a renegotiated contract with plans to keep him on the team for the 2021 season, source said. Crowder will be a free agent next offseason at age 28 to get another payday before age 30.
The WR room is crowded in New York, with Corey Davis, Keenan Cole and rookie Elijah Moore, along with Crowder. With all those wideouts hungry for targets from a rookie QB, it's tough to know who will emerge as fantasy relevant. Maybe training camp will provide some clarity.
Julio Jones has already been at the facility earlier this week (as we saw on @Titans) and attended a team meeting. The expectation is that he is 100% healthy and will be here today and next week for mini camp.
After an injury-filled 2020 where Julio Jones only played in nine contests, he's now in a new city and is expected to be 100% at the start of minicamp. Jones is currently ranked as WR22 in 4for4's half-PPR rankings.
Ravens and restricted free-agent running back Gus Edwards reached agreement on a two-year, $10 million contract extension, per his agent @DrewJRosenhaus. Edwards now under contract through 2023 season.
Gus Edwards is set to function as the 1B to J.K. Dobbins' 1A in the Ravens backfield in 2021. With Mark Ingram gone, Edwards should see an increase in volume and could outperform his current RB39 ADP in Underdog drafts. He's currently ranked as RB32 in 4for4's half-PPR rankings.
Sources: The #Falcons are trading All-Pro WR Julio Jones to the #Titans in exchange for at least a 2nd round pick. A blockbuster for Tennessee, who now gets the coveted big-play threat. And Atlanta ends up with very nice value.
The Titans attempted 485 passes last season and 448 the year before, so this has not been a high-volume offense. It's been highly efficient, however, and supported last year's No. 12 WR (A.J. Brown in 14 games) and No. 31 WR (Corey Davis in 14 games). On a per game basis Brown was the No. 6 WR and Davis was the No. 30 WR. Jones is a significant upgrade over Davis, though his arrival puts a damper on Brown's top 5 status and on any budding sleeper value for Josh Reynolds. It's a huge boon for Ryan Tannehill, who now has a better set of weapons than he had last year, when he finished as the No. 7 QB. Projections will be updated later today.
Cam Newton is expected to miss practice time due to the hand injury that he suffered yesterday, per source. Big opportunity for Mac Jones on the horizon. The Patriots have four OTAs next week then their minicamp June 14-16.
Rookie Mac Jones will have some time to show his capabilities early on in this summer program while Cam Newton rests. The veteran suffered a 'slight bone bruise' to his throwing hand during practice on Thursday afternoon. Newton is currently QB29 to Jones' QB35 in 4for4's rankings.
Rex Burkhead joins David Johnson, Phillip Linsday and Mark Ingram in an already ambiguous backfield. He's spent the past four seasons in New England and has rushed for 1,401 yards with 14 touchdowns, plus 1,444 receiving yards and eight air scores over his eight-year career.
