  Saints | Two CBs expected to join Saints    Sun Aug 1, 04:17 PM

Free-agent CB Prince Amukamara (Cardinals) and CB KeiVarae Russell (Packers) are expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints in the near future. Both players worked out for the team Sunday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: The Saints have a hole in the cornerback group to fill after Janoris Jenkins left in free agency which gives Amukamara something to strive for. Amukamara was once a shut down corner, but he spent most of last year on the Cardinals practice squad. At this point, it would be a win for Amukamara to make the team, and a win for the Saints if he can contribute quality snaps in any way.

  Colts | No surgery for Carson Wentz yet    Sun Aug 1, 02:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz (foot) plans to avoid surgery at this point and will rehab his injured foot over the next few days, according to a source. Wentz has a chance to play Week 1 if he can make progress with rehab.

Footballguys view: This plan doesn't usually avoid surgery in the long run, but it can allow a team to have full availability of a player for part or all of a season. Mobility is important to Wentz's game, so while this could get 17 games played back in play for him, it is still a development that diminishes his fantasy outlook. A local report by beat writer Mike Chappell indicates that the Colts are still mulling over their options, so this may not be the last update we get on the team's decision on the plan of care for Wentz.

  Titans | Tennessee works out two kickers    Sun Aug 1, 02:55 PM

Free-agent PK Sergio Castillo (Jets) and PK Lirim Hajrullahu (Panthers) recently worked out for the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: The Titans have a kicker battle going on between Tucker McCann and Blake Haubeil. This could be a sign that they are open to adding a third kicker and not pleased with what they have right now.

  Jets | Michael Carter working as No. 1 RB    Sun Aug 1, 01:36 PM

New York Jets RB Michael Carter has been working with the first-team offense during the early portion of training camp.

Footballguys view: Carter has the look of the player who will lead all Jets backs in fantasy value, but it's not clear how much that will help fantasy teams. He should be a PPR friendly back with his pass catching skills and could be one of the biggest values in fantasy drafts if he is a good fit in Mike LaFleur's Shanahan-style running game.

  Patriots | Jarrett Stidham to start on PUP list    Sun Aug 1, 12:51 PM

New England Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham (back) will start the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list and will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

Footballguys view: The Patriots don't need Stidham with Mac Jones in tow, but this does decrease the possibility that Newton would be available in a trade to a quarterback needy team if Jones runs away with the quarterback competition.

  Eagles | DeVonta Smith suffers minor injury    Sun Aug 1, 11:44 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (leg) sustained a minor leg injury during practice Saturday, July 31.

Footballguys view: We'll trust that it is minor until we hear otherwise. Hopefully Smith is back to practice within a few days with no recurrence of the injury. In the meantime, Greg Ward should get more snaps in the slot if Smith sits.

  Rams | Robert Rochell eyeing Monday surgery    Sat Jul 31, 10:14 PM

Los Angeles Rams CB Robert Rochell (wrist) suffered a wrist injury Saturday, July 31, that will require surgery, according to head coach Sean McVay. Rochell is expected to undergo surgery Monday, Aug. 2, and is out indefinitely.

Footballguys view: Rochell is a highly athletic small school corner that the team took in the fourth round this year. Darious Williams already had rave reviews of the rookie, so he was on track to contribute this year potentially in a subpackage role. This could affect his ability to help the secondary this year, but file away that Rochell was off to a good start before the injury.

  Vikings | No practice yet for Christian Darrisaw    Sat Jul 31, 09:54 PM

Minnesota Vikings OT Christian Darrisaw (groin) did not take part in the team's offseason workouts after having surgery to repair a core muscle injury last January. He also has sat out the first three days of camp and there is no word on when he might return, according to Judd Zulgad of SKOR North.

Footballguys view: Darrisaw is a candidate to start at left tackle after the team took him in the first round, but if he is out for much longer, it will be difficult for him to overtake Rashod Hill. This development is less than ideal for the Vikings offense.

  Browns | More good things ahead for Austin Hooper?    Sat Jul 31, 09:44 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper 'had a nice season for us (in 2020)' and the team is expected to 'grow his role in 2021' in part because 'he just really understands now in Year 2 how we plan to use him,' according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.

Footballguys view: Hooper could approach low TE1 value if his role increases, but his ceiling is still low in a the Browns balanced offense. This could put him back on the radar in typical leagues and ups his profile in tight end premium and best ball drafts.

  Panthers | Shaq Thompson leaves practice early    Sat Jul 31, 09:03 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Shaq Thompson (lower body) was sent home early from practice after he experienced some tightness in his lower body, according to head coach Matt Rhule.

Footballguys view: Thompson is a key player in the Panthers defense, but they did add Denzel Perryman and Haason Reddick to the linebacker group this offseason. Perryman's IDP value would trend up if Thompson's tightness turns into a larger issue.

  Lions | T.J. Hockenson standing out    Sat Jul 31, 08:22 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson has been the 'best offensive skill player' during the first four days of training camp, according to MLive.com's Kyle Meinke.

Footballguys view: Hockenson has a good chance to lead the Lions in receptions as Jared Goff made Tyler Higbee the #1 fantasy tight end in December 2019. This positive news about Hockenson doesn't dispel that notion and makes taking him at ADP a good plan to keep up with teams that take one of the top three tight ends or Kyle Pitts.

  Vikings | Olabisi Johnson done for the year    Sat Jul 31, 08:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Olabisi Johnson (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice Friday, July 30, and will miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Dede Westbrook was recently signed to compete for the third wide receiver job, so the Vikings might not make a move at wide receiver to replace Johnson. Fifth round rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette should also get more opportunities in the wake of this loss.

  Browns | Nick Chubb set to ink big extension    Sat Jul 31, 08:03 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension worth $36.6 million - including $20 million guaranteed - on Saturday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Despite the narrative that implores teams to not sign running backs to often regretted second contracts, this is a good move for the Browns. Chubb's contract isn't out of line with recent running back deals, and he is an ideal back for this system. The Browns are also sending a message to the team that player who outperform rookie deals will get rewarded before they get to the end of those contracts.

  Dolphins | Will Fuller remains day-to-day    Sat Jul 31, 07:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Will Fuller (undisclosed) is listed as day-to-day, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: Hopefully Fuller gets back on the field soon. Between this, Jaylen Waddle still reportedly limping at times per Adam Beasley and DeVante Parker starting camp on the PUP list, a suddenly resurgent Albert Wilson will have a chance to break into the wide receiver rotation and further muddy this unclear passing game target tree.

  Dolphins | Xavien Howard improving, remains out    Sat Jul 31, 07:45 PM

Updating previous reports, Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (ankle) did not participate in practice Saturday, July 31, but he is improving, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: There have been no reports of a team closing in on a deal for Howard even though he has requested a trade. We'll see if this is a passive holdout type of injury, or one that Howard returns to the practice field from soon in a sign that he isn't going to be a problem if the Dolphins don't trade him or give him a new contract.

Dallas Cowboys OT Tyron Smith (elbow) remains out of practice as of Saturday, July 31, because of elbow tendinitis.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott working on the side    Sat Jul 31, 07:35 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) took part in individual drills Saturday, July 31, but did not throw once again, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: We can't be sure if this absence will be days or weeks. It will give Ben Dinucci, Garrett Gilbert, and Cooper Rush a chance to assert themselves as the backup quarterback. We haven't moved Prescott down in rankings significantly, but it will give us pause if he can't suit up during the preseason.
