1. KC - RB Kareem Hunt working on routes

Source: KCChiefs.com - Matt McMullen

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt said he is working on catching the ball and running more routes in organized team activities.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Chiefs new offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy could feature Hunt more as a receiver this year. He caught 53 passes as a rookie last year, but Hunt did struggle with pass protection issues. Working on his routes/hands is great, but Hunt will need to prove he can protect the quarterback in order for the team to trust him more in passing situations.

2. OAK - RB competition in Oakland?

Source: The Athletic - Vic Tafur

Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin could challenge RB Marshawn Lynch for starting running back duties, in the opinion of The Athletic's Vic Tafur.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Lynch is the lead back at this time, but this is a potential competition that fantasy owners need to monitor. Reports indicate Martin looks quick and has shown burst at organized team activities so far. Lynch has a current ADP of RB32 (7.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

3. NYJ - QB Teddy Bridgewater standing out

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has 'generated a legitimate buzz' thus far in OTAs, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Bridgewater signed a one-year 'prove it' deal with the Jets this offseason. Reports indicate he performed well in the first practice and maintained that high level of play throughout the week. In addition, Bridgewater has impressed his new teammates with his 'football acumen and mental toughness.'

4. SEA - Seattle signing WR Brandon Marshall

Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter

Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall (Giants) is signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, May 29, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Seahawks have a thin WR depth chart behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. Marshall is no lock for the 53-man roster, but if healthy he could contribute as a part-time player. Fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited about his prospects in 2018. Marshall is no longer the player he used to be, and his top-5 season of 2015 is well in the past. If healthy and contributing, we see Marshall as more of a WR5 from a fantasy lens.

5. LAC - Group of Chargers unable to practice

Source: ESPN.com - Eric D. Williams

Los Angeles Chargers OG Forrest Lamp (knee), DL Corey Liuget (undisclosed), WR Mike Williams (back) and OL Donavon Clark (knee) have yet to participate in OTAs.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Williams is the player fantasy owners need to monitor here. The big-bodied 2017 first-round pick didn't play much as a rookie due to this back injury. Williams has the size to contribute immediately as a red zone target in 2018 if healthy. The Chargers will be looking for more pass-catching help after losing TE Hunter Henry (knee) for the year.

6. NYG - Odell Beckham nearing full health

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is 'pretty close' to being cleared from last year's season-ending ankle injury, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Beckham may be able to practice in mandatory minicamp and he's on track to be a full participant for training camp later this summer. He wants a new deal and is in the final year of his rookie contract with an $8.4 million cap hit.

7. SF - WR Dez Bryant to 49ers unlikely

Source: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero

Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) is not expected to be pursued by the San Francisco 49ers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The 49ers have a strong group of wide receivers, although there are some unproven players on the depth chart. Pierre Garcon is healthy and should be the favorite target of QB Jimmy Garropolo this year. Marquise Goodwin can stretch the field to take the top off the defense while Trent Taylor can work the slot and underneath routes. There's not a lot of room for Bryant in San Francisco. Bryant apparently had interest in joining the 49ers, but the interest is not mutual at this time.

8. - OLB Mychal Kendricks to visit three teams

Source: Yahoo! Sports - Jordan Schultz

Free-agent LB Mychal Kendricks (Eagles) has visits scheduled this week with the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns, according to a source. Kendricks is expected to make a decision this week.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Kendricks was released by the Eagles a week ago. He is a thumper who can make an impact as a run defender when healthy. It shouldn't take long for him to find a new team.
