The Lions will want to run the ball as much as any team in the league. Anderson showed last year that he can still get it done, and if the Lions line gels, there will be some redraft value for Anderson, and of course Kerryon Johnson injury upside. Anderson's presence in Detroit will likely lower Johnson's season-long and weekly ceiling, although he had no effect on Christian McCaffrey's value in Carolina.
San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman's 'pass-catching prowess' should put him at the top of the depth chart, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com, and Brooks believes Coleman can be a 1,000-yard rusher in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense.
Coleman is the healthiest back and probably the best pass catcher among the 49ers quartet, and he also has the best touchdown scoring track record. He's the most valuable back for fantasy, and as long as the positive buzz continues, his value will rise. He's still modestly priced for a proven back in a good offense.
New England Patriots WR Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) could start the 2019 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list because of his Achilles tendon injury, in the opinion of The Boston Globe's Ben Volin.
The contract the Patriots gave Thomas far from guaranteed a roster spot, but if he can recover, he could start and be relevant in fantasy leagues. His progress will be important to monitor when calculating the first-year value of #32 overall pick N'keal Harry.
Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox has impressed his teammates with his speed and athleticism during OTAs, according to John Murphy of BuffaloBills.com, and QB Josh Allen praised Knox for how quickly he has picked up the playbook.
Knox was one of the most athletic tight ends in the draft but fell to late third round because of injuries and playing with three NFL prospects at wide receiver at Ole Miss. The Bills signed Tyler Kroft in free agency but he broke his foot in OTAs, giving Knox an opportunity to play a much larger role in the offense in his rookie year if he continues to impress.
Williams should be an instant impact player this year, especially because he'll line up next to Leonard Williams. Hopefully he is fully healthy by the open of camp so defensive coordinator Gregg Williams can devise lots of ways to cross up blocking schemes with one of the best interior line combos in the league.
Los Angeles Rams third-round CB David Long (Michigan) allowed only 29 percent of the targets in his coverage to be completed in 2018 - the lowest completion percentage among draft-eligible cornerbacks with a minimum of 150 coverage snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
Long was drafted as an eventual replacement for Marcus Peters or Aqib Talib. Both will be free agents next year. Long is a press man specialist who fits well in the Rams defensive scheme. He has a shutdown corner's game even though he lacks elite tools. The Rams could be in good hands if they suffer an injury at corner this year.
Austin could eventually start on the outside opposite Trumaine Johnson but he only played five games over his junior and senior seasons because of knee injuries. The team hopes that Darryl Roberts rises to the occasion, but if he doesn't, Morris Claiborne could be re-signed. This spot will likely be a weakness that opposing pass offenses target frequently.
Free-agent SS Tre Boston (Cardinals) indicated during an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he has been contacted by multiple teams this offseason but hasn't been pleased with the contract offers he's received.
The safety market bounced back this year in free agency, but Boston wasn't one of the beneficiaries. He'll probably get interest closer to his expectations after teams get a closer look at what they have at safety in training camp.
The Bills have been searching for an edge rush presence to complement Jerry Hughes and Murphy is probably the best candidate this year. If he can stay healthy, he should improve their passing down defense and have an outside shot at IDP relevance.
