Baldwin's knee problem has been lingering for a bit since Carroll also said the veteran has been 'a little bit off.' The way they're handling this injury is considered maintenance as the team is being cautious. Baldwin will miss a few weeks and his status for Week 1 against the Broncos is unknown at this time.
It's been quite some time since Floyd has been fantasy relevant. Injuries and off-field issues have plagued him recently but landing with the Saints is interesting...even though he's no lock for the 53-man roster.
Keenum has looked really good in Broncos training camp so far. He has strong chemistry with all of his top targets, but he's especially showing a connection with Emmanuel Sanders. Keenum has hit Sanders on quite a few deep touchdowns over the last few days. We'll see if that connection can continue during the preseason and into the regular season. Keenum is a safe QB2 for Fantasy GMs.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice has already been praised by the coaching staff for his involvement in meetings and his aggression on field. Guice has been working to improve his pass protection and trying to solidify his technique so as not to overcommit on a block.
Guice is a tremendously talented runner with power and speed. He can easily be the lead back for Washington and has RB2 value for Fantasy GMs with that size of role. Guice will need to prove that he can protect the QB if he's going to get on the field as the primary back. Chris Thompson will continue to serve as Washington's change-of-pace back.
A second-round pick out of East Carolina in 2017, Jones had a horrible rookie season with just 27 catches (on 74 targets) as a rookie. He's hoping for a bounce-back year in 2018 but Jones is going to attempt to do that coming back from offseason knee surgery. We're not interested in him for redraft leagues and even Fantasy GMs in dynasty leagues are not hot on Jones stock.
Crabtree has a great catch radius and he is effective in close quarters on contested balls. He is as good a bet as any to lead the team in receiving touchdowns this year. Flacco did well with a similar receiver in Anquan Boldin, although they didn't click as a red zone combo.
The Vikings appear to be having no problems locking up players long term even after taking on Kirk Cousins fully guaranteed contract. Diggs price will only go up in an annually wide receiver hungry free agent market, so this is smart.
Thompson avoided the PUP list to start camp and he's slowly getting worked back into the mix. The starting running back in Washington may have changed to rookie Derrius Guice but Thompson should still be relied on as the primary pass-catching back. He's got plenty of flex appeal in PPR leagues and a current ADP of RB35 (7.11) in 12-team formats.
Decker didn't do much last year in his one season with the Titans and he's no longer the same player he used to be. The veteran was drafted by Pats OC Josh McDaniels (back when he was the head coach of the Broncos in 2010) and Decker has previously stated that he would love to play for the Patriots. They could be updating their emergency list or they could have real interest in adding Decker. Stay tuned.
McDonald always seems to be dealing with minor but nagging injuries. This foot injury is the latest one. He's got plenty of potential if he ever stays healthy, and reports earlier this offseason suggested he could be a big part of the Steelers passing game. He's a TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs...but he's got to be healthy first.
He was limited in OTAs and minicamp earlier this year with a knee injury. That was lingering then and could still be a minor issue now. Watch his progress as training camp continues. Smith-Schuster has a current ADP of WR19 (4.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.
Indianapolis colts RB Jordan Wilkins is 'in the mix' to start Week 1, although there has been 'plenty of rotation' at the running back position early in training camp, according to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan.
Wilkins is the cheapest Colts back outside of Robert Turbin, who is suspended for the first four games, but he has the potential to lead the team in carries and rushing scores. He's worth late round consideration and his ADP could be in for a rise.
West also has suffered a concussion, his second in two years, and Spencer Ware is back and healthy. West has been competent in his role, but hasn't really added value. A release wouldn't be that big of a surprise.
Coleman has a great opportunity with Josh Gordon away from the team. He has had his share of explosive plays and games, that is when he could stay on the field. Fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway will provide competition for snaps and targets outside. Coleman opens with Pittsburgh, so if Gordon hasn't rejoined the team, he could be a hot waiver wire pickup if he goes undrafted.
Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (shoulder) sustained a shoulder injury during practice Monday, July 30. Head coach Anthony Lynn didn't seem overly concerned about the seriousness of the injury but told reporters Benjamin 'may be in a red jersey' if he practices Tuesday, July 31.
The Chargers already have lost a few players due to injury, and they don't need another one. It sounds like this one is minor and Benjamin should be out there soon enough. Benjamin provides a speed element to the Chargers passing attack behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.
New England Patriots TE Jacob Hollister reportedly got off to a good start this year from offseason workouts to spring practices, so much so head coach Bill Belichick told ESPN's Mike Reiss that Hollister 'has a great future.'
Hollister was an interesting prospect when he came out of Wyoming as an undrafted free agent. He was a weapon for Josh Allen with the Cowboys and he's learned the pro game for a year as a reserve with the Patriots. Hollister is a dynasty prospect we really appreciate, and this news just gets us more excited to see his continued development in the preseason.
