I. Solutions for 7 Common Auction Situations
Jeff Pasquino finds solutions for 7 common auction problems.


1. MIA - RB Matt Breida pegged for 35 percent

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is expected to receive 35 percent of the touches in the backfield, according to beat writer Cameron Wolfe.

That sounds about right. Breida is going to be the change-of-pace back to starter Jordan Howard in 2020. The Dolphins should be running the ball early and often as they groom rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa (who should be starting over Ryan Fitzpatrick soon enough).

2. JAX - DE Yannick Ngakoue in contact

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue has been in contact with general manager David Caldwell, but it's unknown whether he'll report to camp.

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

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Ngakoue has parted ways with his agent. There has been buzz that Ngakoue would be willing to play on his franchise tag elsewhere. He has not signed his tag for the Jaguars and is a no-show for camp.

3. MIA - RB Jordan Howard expected to lead

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard is expected to carry the rushing load in 2020, in the opinion of beat writer Cameron Wolfe. Wolfe expects Howard to receive 50 percent of the backfield touches.

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

Howard is going to be the banger on the roster. He'll soften up defenses on the whole was a battering ram between the tackles. When it comes to catching the rock out of the backfield, Matt Breida will be the back the Dolphins turn to.

4. DEN - RB Phillip Lindsay stronger in 2020

Source: 9News.com - Mike Klis

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay recently told Mike Klis of 9News that he gained 10 pounds of muscle this offseason.'Feel good, feel fast. That wrist injury (last year) really did a toll on me when it came to working out. ... So I feel really good, I feel explosive and I feel like I'm going to have a (heck of a) season this year,' Lindsay said.

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

Lindsay has added muscle to his frame in order to keep up with the pounding he's taken in two years as the starter for the Broncos. Each of the last two offseasons, Lindsay has spent time rehabbing from a wrist surgery. This year, Lindsay should serve as the backup to Melvin Gordon...although he's likely to get a larger split than most backup running backs out there. The Broncos passing game has a lot of appeal to Fantasy GMs but do not sleep on this Gordon/Lindsay combination which should lead the way offensively.

5. TEN - WR A.J. Brown focused on better conditioning

Source: TitansOnline.com - Jim Wyatt

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown told Jim Wyatt of the team's website that he noticed he looked fatigued in the fourth quarter of games in 2019 and has spent the offseason making sure to avoid a similar fate.'I have to be able to go through the entire game and make my routes look the same. I have to be well-conditioned. ... Looking back at some film, I left some plays out there because I was a little tired. I want to be all-around complete. ... I am definitely in a better place (physically), and I'm in a better shape mentally as well,' Brown said.

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

Brown exploded onto the scene last year as a rookie, averaging a whopping 20.2 yards per catch. However, Brown's lowest YPC total per quarter came in the fourth quarter (14.8). We'll see if this new emphasis on better conditioning helps those numbers late in games this season. The Titans are a run-heavy offense but Brown should work his way into the top-15 for fantasy receivers.
