1. NYG - Odell Beckham to report on time

Source: SNY - Ralph Vacchiano

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said he plans to report to training camp on time and will not be holding out because of his contract situation.

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

Beckham has been showing good faith towards the Giants this entire offseason. He wants a new deal, and he could become the highest paid WR in the league...although reports from Giants beat writers indicate the two sides are not even close in negotiations. Beckham is recovering from the ankle injury that shortened his 2017 season and should be back to his top-5 WR ways for fantasy owners in 2018.

2. CAR - DE Julius Peppers likely to be limited

Carolina Panthers DE Julius Peppers likely will receive limited snaps this upcoming season.

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

That only makes sense for a seasoned veteran like Peppers. Each of the last three years Peppers has seen his snaps go down from 700 (2015) to 587 (2016) to 500 (2017). The Panthers should use the future Hall of Famer as a part-time player to get pressure on the quarterback.

3. NYG - B.J. Hill works with first-team

New York Giants DE B.J. Hill received snaps with the first-team defense during minicamp this week.

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

A third-round pick out of NC State this year, Hill is a big-bodied run stuffing defensive lineman. He'll have to improve his play strength in the NFL, but Hill does a good job of recognizing where a play is going and getting to the ball carrier.

4. NYG - CB Eli Apple on track to start

Source: ESPN.com - Jordan Raanan

New York Giants CB Eli Apple appears to be the leading candidate to start at cornerback opposite CB Janoris Jenkins this upcoming season.

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

A first-round pick in 2016, Apple had a terrible sophomore season in 2017 and teammates (like Landon Collins) called him a 'cancer' in the locker room. Apple has been performing well in OTAs and is doing well with the fresh start a new coaching staff has given him.

5. LAC - Dylan Cantrell staying at WR

Source: Chargers.com - Ricky Henne

Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said the team is not considering moving WR Dylan Cantrell to tight end.

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

A sixth-round pick out of Texas Tech in the 2018 NFL draft, Cantrell measures in at 6'3" 226 pounds. He's not overly quick or fast, but Cantrell knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders. He also has good concentration when the pass is coming in. Cantrell is an interesting dynasty prospect in deeper leagues, and this year he's competing for a spot on the roster in a jam-packed Chargers WR corps.

6. JAX - WR Rashad Greene impressing

Source: ESPN.com - Mike DiRocco

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has been the 'most consistent and best receiver' during OTAs and minicamp, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.

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

A fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Greene missed all of last year with an undisclosed injury and only has 24 catches in the two seasons that he did play. Injuries have held Greene back as a pro, and we'll have to see if he can stay healthy and continue to impress. Right now, Greene is fifth on the Jaguars depth chart at best.

7. LAC - Artavis Scott could return kicks

Source: ESPN.com - Eric D. Williams

Los Angeles Chargers WR Artavis Scott has made some 'splash plays' during offseason activities, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com, and Williams believes Scott will compete for a job as the returner this season.

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

Scott is a strong runner with the ball in his hands and has the agility to make defenders miss in the open field. Undrafted out of Clemson last year, Scott's best chance to make the team is as a return man.

8. BAL - WR Chris Moore carving out role

Source: ESPN.com - Jamison Hensley

Baltimore Ravens WR Chris Moore has carved out a role as a downfield threat and a kickoff returner, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, but Hensley believes Moore is still fourth on the depth chart.

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

That sounds about right for Moore's skill set. A fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Moore was a deep target in college at Cincinnati. He's not much of a route runner and doesn't have blazing speed, but he does have long arms and quality ball-tracking ability.

9. IND - Minor injury for WR Chester Rogers

Source: FOX 59 Indianapolis - Mike Chappell

Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers (undisclosed) missed all of minicamp with a minor injury.

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

It's a bit of a concern given that Rogers has had trouble staying healthy during a couple of seasons in the pros. He's never played a full 16-game season and has to show that he can stay healthy and produce as a slot receiver. The Colts have new additions like free agent Ryan Grant or rookie Daurice Fountain, but there's an opportunity for him to earn snaps. Reports indicate he's going to be fine for training camp.

10. BUF - Brandon Reilly running with top unit

Source: BuffaloBills.com - Chris Brown

Buffalo Bills WR Brandon Reilly has spent time working with the first-team offense during OTAs.

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

Undrafted out of Nebraska in 2017, Reilly (6'2" 200 pounds) spent most of his rookie season on the Bills practice squad or inactive when he was on the 53-man roster. The Bills don't have an overly talented WR corps and there is an opportunity here for Reilly. His best spot might be as a slot receiver.
