Bengals are retaining offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, signing him to a new contract.
Cincinnati was shut out in Week 1 and scored nine points in a Week 2 loss to the Texans. They then fired OC Ken Zampese and promoted Lazor. In the next 14 games, the Bengals averaged 20.1 points (on pace to finish 21st in scoring) and were 24th in yards per play run.
According to the Athletic, Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Bryan Edwards has been enjoying a strong summer and has kept it up in training camp.
Bryan Edwards has been the recipient of off-season praise from beat writers, coaches, and teammates alike, all summer, most recently from quarterback Derek Carr and head coach Jon Gruden. Carr once again compared the second-year wideout to former Fresno State teammate Davante Adams, noting that his body control and strong hands remind him of the Green Bay Packers superstar. Head coach Jon Gruden offered this: 'Edwards has great ability … he looks like T.O.,” Gruden said on NFL Network last week. “He looks like one of the No. 1 wideouts in the league'. While hearing coaches talk up younger players is nothing new for this time of the year, this is a reminder that Edwards has a chance to emerge as a top option in the Raiders passing attack, especially if Carr's affinity for the wideout continues to grow. Currently 87th in our wide receiver rankings, Edwards could scream up draft boards with a strong showing during the preseason.
According to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton has flashed since returning to the practice field.
Courtland Sutton has been making a number of exciting plays in training camp, so much so that Kosmider opined that Sutton is flashing his Pro Bowl form. It is great news that Sutton has started turning heads after a slow start to camp. Fantasy managers can now feel more confident that he is trending towards a full recovery and will still be the same receiving threat he was before the injury. Currently, our 36th ranked receiver, Sutton, has the tools to outperform his ADP as the 31st receiver off the board by a fair margin.
Giants head coach Joe Judge told reporters that WR Kenny Golladay is seeing a doctor to determine the extent of his hamstring injury and that he appeared to have 'missed' the 'worst-case scenario.'
“In terms of a worst-case scenario, I think we’ve kind of avoided that, in terms of dealing with it," said Judge. "But we’ll see what the timetable looks like. Injuries are different for every player, so we’ll have to see how his body responds and make sure we do right by him.”
Golladay has had soft tissue injuries in the past and is coming off a prolonged absence in 2020 while with the Detroit Lions. It is realistic to not expect Golladay on the practice field for a large chunk of August.
