1. GB - WR Davante Adams creates space

Source: ESPN.com - Jeremy Fowler

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams' 3.3 average yards of separation per target was fourth among the 29 receivers with at least 100 targets in 2019.

Adams was playing through a foot injury that cost him four weeks, so this is extra impressive. If anyone can knock Michael Thomas off of the WR1 perch this year, it's Adams. He'll go in the first round of almost every draft.

2. MIN - QB Kirk Cousins shined outside pocket

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins earned a 84.1 Pro Football Focus passing grade on throws outside the pocket in 2019 which ranked second among quarterbacks.

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

The Vikings pass offense doesn't ask Cousins to freelance often, but he has been better than his reputation would suggest in this area of the game. He's still only a draft consideration in 2QB/Superflex leagues with the Vikings reliance on the running game to make their offense go.

3. PHI - Jalen Reagor's signing expected Monday

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor is expected to take his team physical Monday, July 20, in Philadelphia, according to a source, and sign his rookie contract.

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

Reagor had a small opening to possibly become a first day starter when DeSean Jackson's anti-Semitic comments got him into hot water, but the team is keeping Jackson and Reagor will instead work as his backup at "Z" wide receiver in camp. Jackson basically played one game last year, albeit with two scores, so Reagor could and should still have some redraft appeal this year.

4. GB - WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling targeted deep

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling finished fourth in the league in 2019 with an average depth of target of 16.9 yards, according to Pro Football Reference's advanced receiving data.

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

Allen Lazard should get more deep targets this year, and Devin Funchess could also soak up some of the extra deep targets that Valdes-Scantling won't get unless he has a very strong training camp. The Packers still only have one reliable passcatcher for fantasy leagues.

5. BUF - Two TEs may not make team

Source: BillsWire - Justin DiLoro

Buffalo Bills TEs Jason Croom and Nate Becker likely will need to have strong training camps if they want a chance to earn a spot on the final roster, in the opinion of BillsWire's Justin DiLoro.

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

Croom is a former wide receiver, which makes him notable for deep dynasty fantasy leagues, but his window of opportunity with the Bills appears to have passed.

FOOTBALLGUYS PICKS

Title Text - Detail. Pitch and link.



6. MIA - Brandon Jones may have solid role

Miami Dolphins S Brandon Jones likely will be the No. 3 safety for the Dolphins this upcoming season.

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

Eric Rowe is the strong safety and tight end stopper. Bobby McCain is the starting free safety, but he doesn't have a vise grip on the job and durability is a question. Jones will see the field this year, and perhaps a lot more than he expects.

7. BAL - Ben Powers to push for starting job

Source: RavensWire - Matthew Stevens

Baltimore Ravens OG Ben Powers is expected to compete with OG D.J. Fluker for the starting right guard job during training camp.

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

There are huge shoes to fill at the spot as Marshal Yanda retired this offseason, but Fluker can move bodies in the running game and Powers was drafted in the fourth round last year to be Yanda's eventual replacement. The Ravens brought in Fluker to hedge against Powers not being ready, and Fluker's experience probably makes him the favorite to win the job.

8. ARI - Kelvin Beachum hopes to push for starting job

Arizona Cardinals OT Kelvin Beachum said he is not sure what position he will be playing for with the Cardinals but hopes to compete for a starting job during training camp.

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

Beachum has been a left tackle since his second season, but probably could compete with Justin Murray and Marcus Gilbert at right tackle. Third round pick Josh Jones is the likely right tackle of the future, but the lack of an offseason might make this a redshirt year for him. Beachum could fit as a swing tackle and be valuable if starting left tackle DJ Humphries can't stay healthy. The tackle position isn't as big a sore spot as it has been in previous years, but Beachum still upgrades the depth chart.

9. BAL - Three to compete for OLB job

Source: RavensWire - Matthew Stevens

Baltimore Ravens LBs Tyus Bowser, Jaylon Ferguson and Pernell McPhee will compete for one of the starting outside linebacker jobs during training camp.

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

Bowser was a second round pick in 2017 and has the highest ceiling. Ferguson was a third round pick last year and more of a natural sack artist. McPhee has the most experience by far and started seven games for the Ravens last year, but the team might be hoping one of the youngsters steps up and outplays him in camp.
