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.
We will have to wait and see what other team will be heavily impacted by the eventual signing of Hopkins, but as of now we can expect a target increase for each of Brown, Moore, and, likely, third-round rookie Michael Wilson.
Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is not participating in the team’s OTA practices this week as he continues to recover from the left foot injury he suffered late last season, coach Josh McDaniels said Thursday. While McDaniels declined to discuss specifics, team and league sources said Garoppolo had surgery in March after signing with the Raiders. His recovery timeline from that procedure is unknown, although McDaniels acknowledged he “could be” out until at least training camp.
Per the article, "the sense is that the Raiders aren’t worried about Garoppolo being ready for the start of the regular season in September." That's all fine and well, but not only does Garoppolo have a lengthy injury history, but he's also in a brand new offense that doesn't have the deepest talent after Davante Adams. Jimmy G's fantasy value was already questionable, and this should further diminish his outlook.
This is an interesting observation from beat writer Nate Taylor, as the current order of the KC depth chart according to Underdog ADP is; Toney, Moore, Rice, MVS, Richie James. Not only that, but Rice is going almost three entire rounds prior to Valdes-Scantling even though it seems he may be behind him in 3WR-sets.
We're still very early in the process and the rookie could very easily find the field more as the summer months move on, but MVS might need to be in higher consideration.
