  • Andre Johnson's agent talking with Texans
    Andre Johnson's player rep has remained in contact with the Texans.

    Advice: Johnson's agent declined comment on reports that Johnson had shown up at team facilities on Monday, but suggested tensions have cooled. For now, most signs point toward Johnson reporting for the Texans' first workout on Saturday.

  • Ace Sanders facing four-game ban to start '14
    NFL suspended Jaguars WR Ace Sanders four games.

    Advice: Sanders won't appeal the suspension, but expects to miss the majority of training camp as he tends to "personal issues." Without coming out and saying it, Sanders made multiple allusions to substance-abuse issues. "I've decided to go seek that help and get that attention," he said. "Counseling, anybody that can give me insight." Already no higher than No. 4 on the depth chart, Sanders has greatly jeopardized his role in the Jaguars' offense. Coming off an uninspiring rookie campaign, Sanders may not have a role when he returns.

  • Browns have 'no plans' to release Josh Gordon
    The Browns have "no plans" to release Josh Gordon, and expect him to participate in training camp while his suspension appeal is heard.

    Advice: "We're expecting him to report on Friday and be on the field," coach Mike Pettine said. "We have no plans to cut him. I know there's been a lot of debate over that, but I don't see us having that debate." Gordon's appeal is set to be heard before the end of the month. He's fully expected to earn a 16-game ban.

  • Julio Jones (foot) limited for start of camp
    Julio Jones will be "limited" for the start of training camp, but has avoided the active/PUP list.

    Advice: We'd obviously prefer to see Jones at 100 percent from Day 1, but the fact that he's avoided the PUP list is a strong sign the Falcons aren't worried about his health. Jones' preseason reps figure to be strictly managed, but he'll be ready to rock as a top-five receiver for Week 1.

  • DeSean Jackson's 2013 was an outlier?
    DeSean Jackson averaged 3.85 catches for 67.3 yards and 0.32 touchdowns per game on a 52.2 percent catch rate in five years under Andy Reid.

    Advice: In one year with Chip Kelly (last season), Jackson's numbers surged to 5.12 catches for 83.2 yards and 0.56 touchdowns on a 65.0 catch rate. He also stayed completely healthy for the first time since 2008. Now out of the Kelly offense again and sharing No. 1 wideout duties with Pierre Garcon, there's reason to think that career-best season was an outlier.

    Jaguars placed WR Ace Sanders on the non-football illness list.

    Advice: His stay there should be short lived. Sanders has a fairly firm grip on Jacksonville's No. 4 receiver job, but can't afford to miss a ton of time coming off a middling rookie season.

    Falcons signed WR Jeremy Ebert.

    Advice: A seventh-round journeyman, Ebert caught three passes across six games for the Jaguars last season. If he has any shot at cracking the Falcons' 53-man roster, it's as a special teamer who can man the final wideout spot in a pinch.

  • Giants rookie WR Beckham battling hamstring
    Giants first-round pick Odell Beckham battled a hamstring injury during the spring, and is unsure if it's back to 100 percent.

    Advice: Beckham did say the balky hammy is "feeling a lot better," though. It's notable because hamstring injuries can linger, especially for receivers, and Beckham appeared to pull up lame on a deep route on his first rep with the first-team offense in Tuesday's first practice of camp. Beckham is expected to be the No. 3 or 4 option in the Giants' passing game in year one, operating mostly as a field-stretcher to clear space for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.

  • Report: Andre Johnson to show to camp on time
    The Houston Chronicle reports Andre Johnson is expected to report to training camp on time.

    Advice: Johnson was at Houston's NRG Stadium on Monday talking with team brass. It's obviously great news for the Texans and would ease the minds of fantasy players. The Texans have no real incentive to trade Johnson unless they can finagle an early-round pick from the acquiring team. Johnson has averaged 110.5 catches for 1502.5 yards with nine touchdowns the past two seasons. A shoo-in WR1 when healthy, Johnson's current ADP is at the back of round four.

  • Charles Johnson could push Austin, Burleson
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer points to Browns WR Charles Johnson as the "most intriguing prospect" who could push Miles Austin and Nate Burleson for snaps.

    Advice: As long as Johnson (ACL surgery) is healthy, get ready for a summer full of hype. At 6'2/215 with sub-4.4 jets, there's a good chance he's going to look special on the practice field next to washed-up vets like Austin and Burleson. Johnson underwent knee surgery in October and should be ready for the start of camp this week. He's a deep sleeper to keep an eye on throughout the preseason.

  • Stevie Johnson's salary working against him
    CSN Bay Area suggests Stevie Johnson will have to "clearly" win the No. 3 receiver job due to his scheduled $3.925 million salary.

    Advice: Johnson is competing for No. 3 duties behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Rookie Bruce Ellington, sophomore Quinton Patton, and veteran Brandon Lloyd are also in the mix, and all make considerably less money than Johnson. Whoever wins the No. 3 job is highly unlikely to be fantasy relevant as the No. 4 option in the passing game. Johnson is no lock for the 53-man roster.

  • Josh Gordon blew a .09 during DWI arrest
    Sources tell ESPN that Josh Gordon's blood-alcohol count was .09 when he was arrested on suspicion of DWI over July 4th weekend.

    Advice: The legal limit in North Carolina is .08, so the Browns have reportedly been told that it's possible the charges will be reduced. That could help Gordon's case when he applies for reinstatement to the league following his impending suspension. Gordon's hearing on that marijuana-related suspension is scheduled for sometime in the next two weeks, at which point the 16-game ban is expected to become official.

    Advice: Joining him there will be CB Alfonzo Dennard, WR Jeremy Gallon, DT Tommy Kelly and WR Matt Slater. Dobson had been optimistic he'd be good to go for the start of camp, but isn't ready after sitting out the entire offseason program. This being the Pats, there's little hard info on Dobson's recovery, but we doubt his stay on the PUP list will be a long one. Dobson can be activated at any time.

    Advice: The Lions open camp next Monday. A sixth-round pick, Jones will start off behind the eight ball as he competes for sub-package receiver duties behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Jones primarily practiced at Z receiver during pre-camp workouts. Megatron played Z under outgoing OC Scott Linehan, but is more likely to be utilized at X by new playcaller Joe Lombardi, with Tate at Z.

    Advice: Just three days after getting waived by the Lions, Roosevelt gets scooped up in a familiar place. Roosevelt played his college ball at the University of Buffalo, and has made his only NFL appearances as a Bill (16 games between 2010-11). He'll be on the outside of the roster bubble looking in.

  • Wyatt very high on Kendall Wright for 2014
    The Nashville Tennessean projects 88 receptions, 1,360 yards and eight touchdowns for Kendall Wright this season.

    Advice: The projection is extremely optimistic, but it's notable as it comes from top beat man Jim Wyatt. It will depend on Jake Locker both staying healthy for the first time as an NFL starter, and also taking a giant leap forward in his fourth NFL season. If both those variables hold, Wright certainly has the separation ability and explosiveness to make a statistical leap while playing the Keenan Allen role in Ken Whisenhunt's offense. We're just not ready to bet that heavily on Locker.

  • Low reception expectations for Robinson
    ESPN Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco believes "anywhere from 30-40 catches" would be a "very good season" for rookie Allen Robinson.

    Advice: Indeed. Robinson is unlikely to play in two-wide sets -- he's behind Marqise Lee and Cecil Shorts -- and the Jaguars intend to lean on their Toby Gerhart-led run game this season. About 35 catches with a 15-plus yards-per-reception average would be a nice showing from Robinson, whose Dynasty outlook is far more enticing than his re-draft prospects. Robinson is still only 20 years old.

    Panthers WR Tiquan Underwood "dropped passes throughout OTAs."

    Advice: Underwood looked like he had a chance to start when the Panthers signed him to a two-year deal in March, but he's fallen down the totem pole. Carolina's top-three receivers are now Kelvin Benjamin, Jerricho Cotchery, and Jason Avant. 27-year-old Underwood could still be a useful situational deep threat.

  • Sidney Rice competing for roster spot
    ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount considers Sidney Rice the "odd man out" at receiver entering training camp.

    Advice: Blount left Rice off his initial 53-man roster projection. Rice doesn't contribute on special teams and has lost a considerable amount of explosion after numerous injuries. If he's not a top-three receiver, Rice doesn't bring much to the team. He's competing with rookie Kevin Norwood and special teamer Ricardo Lockette for a roster spot. Rice brings zilch to the table in terms of fantasy value.

    ESPN New York's Dan Graziano reports the Giants plan to use rookie Odell Beckham to "stretch out defenses" in a way that allows them to operate with quick-hitting options.

    Advice: Beckham would essentially be a decoy, running clearing routes for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Graziano is skeptical Beckham will be able to beat press coverage and match up with physical corners, though "people around the league" think he can contribute right away. Beckham is the No. 54 receiver in Rotoworld's pre-camp rankings, with a projected 52/702/5 rookie-year line.

    Louis Murphy has "the inside track" on the Bucs' No. 3 receiver job.

    Advice: Murphy "performed at a high level" during OTAs with Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans sidelined. He's competing with Chris Owusu and sixth-round WR Robert Herron for the slot role in Jeff Tedford's offense. Murphy's veteran status gives him the early edge, but there's a good chance that could change once training camp is over. 27-year-old Murphy caught just six passes for 37 yards in 14 games with the Giants last season.

    Advice: Williams sat out some of the offseason program to rest the hamstring he had surgically repaired last season, but said he is "fully ready to go" now. The Bills will use Williams on the outside in three-wide sets and as a target man in the red zone. His touchdown potential could push him into the WR4 range in redraft leagues.

"After the second week of the preseason, we'll want to have had something done, one way or another." The team would like to get both deals done. Demaryius should be the first priority.

  • Doctors use 'cutting-edge' procedure on Julio
    Doctors used a "cutting-edge medical procedure" to heal Julio Jones' troublesome right foot and prevent the injury from recurring.

    Advice: The fifth metatarsal bone Jones has fractured twice is notorious for being difficult to heal due to a limited blood supply. In order to help the healing process, Dr. Robert Anderson took bone marrow from Jones' hip and injected into the wide receiver's foot. This coupled with a new, larger screw inserted into the bone should accelerate the healing process and decrease the chances of another re-injury. Jones could be recovered in time for the start of training camp, and is a lock for Week 1. He is a top-five wide receiver in all formats.
