  • Datone Jones to play DE & DT for Packers
    The Packers are counting on 2013 first-round pick Datone Jones to start at end in their base 3-4, and tackle in the nickel defense.

    Advice: The coaching staff wants Jones to be an every-down player after a disappointing, ankle-injury-marred rookie year. A ballyhooed prospect coming out of UCLA last season, 24-year-old Jones will start opposite Mike Daniels with B.J. Raji at nose tackle. With Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, Brad Jones, and A.J. Hawk at linebacker, Green Bay's front seven has potential on paper.

  • Bridgewater trending toward Week 1 start?
    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune "won't be surprised" if Teddy Bridgewater starts Week 1.

    Advice: Reporter Chip Scoggins has gone from believing Matt Cassel was a "slam dunk" to sensing Bridgewater has a fighting chance. NFL Network's Albert Breer passed along a similar sentiment on Wednesday. The battle will obviously come down to what Bridgewater shows in preseason games. The Vikings already know what Cassel can do (and it's not very much).

  • Bartu running as starter at Falcons camp
    Second-year UDFA Joplo Bartu is running as the Falcons' starting inside linebacker next to Paul Worrilow at training camp.

    Advice: Both Bartu and Worrilow are second-year undrafted free agents who struggled as rookies. Pro Football Focus graded Worrilow as a bottom-ten inside linebacker last season, among 55 qualifiers. Bartu showed well in run defense, but was the league's third worst 4-3 outside linebacker in pass coverage per PFF. We'll be sure to target Atlanta's defense in fantasy matchups this season.

  • Mornhinweg: Stephen Hill looks 'outstanding'
    Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg says Stephen Hill has looked "outstanding" in training camp.

    Advice: "Wow, he's taken a huge jump," Mornhinweg added. Lighting up practice is par for the course for the 2012 second-rounder. It's staying healthy and translating that ability to games that has thus far eluded him. Either way, we'd rather hear positive Hill updates than negative ones. Despite Hill's theoretical upside, it's hard to see him making a reliable re-draft impact.

  • James White gets goal-line reps on Thursday
    Patriots fourth-round RB James White took goal-line reps in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It's a few reps in only one practice, but it's clear coach Bill Belichick was serious when he talked up White as a three-down talent. White should be given every opportunity to beat out Brandon Bolden for No. 3 duties, which would give him vulture appeal behind fumbler Stevan Ridley.

  • Tandon Doss carted off with ankle issue
    Tandon Doss was carted off with an ankle injury in Thursday's practice, but has avoided a break.

    Advice: Doss will likely be diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain on Friday. He should be considered week to week. The No. 5 receiver, Doss is expected to open the season as the Jags' primary punt returner due to the suspension of Ace Sanders. He has no fantasy value.

  • Locker struggles to find Wright downfield
    Jake Locker is just 4-of-23 (17.4 percent) in his career targeting Kendall Wright on passes of ten or more yards downfield.

    Advice: Much of Wright's to-date success has come with short-ball throwers Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Hasselbeck, while the Titans allowed Wright to freelance often in his routes last season. The 2014 Titans staff hopes to make Wright a more "disciplined" and "structured" wideout, as noted below by Football Outsiders' Thomas Gower. Down to 184 pounds -- his 2012 Combine weigh-in was 5'10/196 -- Wright should remain a solid standard WR3 with WR2 potential in PPR. His catches do seem likely to dip a bit with popgun-gunslinger Fitzpatrick gone, and Ken Whisenhunt installing a more vertical-oriented attack.

  • Blanchflower sidelined by high ankle sprain
    Seventh-round TE Rob Blanchflower suffered a high ankle sprain at Steelers camp.

    Advice: The UMass alum will miss "at least a week," according to coach Mike Tomlin, but could be sidelined even further than that. Blanchflower was slated to compete for a roster spot behind starter Heath Miller and blocker Matt Spaeth.

  • Tony Romo expects to play in preseason
    Tony Romo (back) expects to see action in the preseason.

    Advice: Romo has declared himself 100 percent, but the Cowboys still have him on a maintenance schedule during camp. It's merely precautionary. We're not expecting Romo's back to be an issue as he tries to mask the Dallas defense's impending misery.

  • Ravens lose rookie DE Urban to torn ACL
    Ravens fourth-round DE Brent Urban has suffered a torn ACL in his right knee.

    Advice: Urban, a classic five-technique prospect out of UVA, was expected to provide depth behind Haloti Ngata and Chris Canty. Instead, he'll spend his rookie season on injured reserve.

  • Colts want to score any way necessary
    ESPN's Colts reporter says Andrew Luck will have "plenty of opportunities to throw the ball" this season.

    Advice: The insinuation is that stubborn OC Pep Hamilton will relent on his forced power-running obsession and take the shackles off Luck. Beat man Mike Wells says the Colts now simply want to score points whichever way necessary. It should be a no-brainer philosophy change with the interior offensive line in shambles, question marks at running back, improved weaponry in the pass game and Luck ready to emerge as a generational talent.

  • Da'Rick Rogers off to slow start at camp
    Da'Rick Rogers is off to a slow start at training camp.

    Advice: Per beat reporter Mike Wells, Griff Whalen has "definitely" outplayed Rogers so far. It's another disappointing turn of events for a talented prospect fighting for the No. 4 receiver job. Still, he's just 23 years old and Reggie Wayne/Hakeem Nicks are on one-year deals. We're holding Rogers in Dynasty formats where we can.

  • C.J. Anderson drops 20 pounds
    C.J. Anderson has dropped his weight from 234 pounds at minicamp to roughly 215 pounds now.

    Advice: Anderson was reportedly sluggish during the offseason program, and people within the Broncos thought he wouldn't keep a roster spot at that weight. So now he's slimmed down and is looking like he did last year, when he made the squad as UDFA. Anderson is our favorite Montee Ball handcuff as long as he beats out Juwan Thompson and Brennan Clay.

  • Toliver waived with injury settlement
    Bears waived WR Terrence Toliver (foot) with an injury settlement.

    Advice: Toliver was a roster sleeper thanks to a 6'5/204 frame that we know the Bears love, but a small fracture was discovered in his foot. He's been hit with an eight-week recovery timetable. OL Graham Pocic was signed in a corresponding move.

  • Belichick says James White is a 3-down back
    Coach Bill Belichick sees fourth-round RB James White as a three-down back.

    Advice: White was pegged as a "passing back" by some coming out of Wisconsin, but the Patriots don't see it that way. "He does a good job in the passing game and in the running game -- both inside and outside," said Belichick. "... I think he has the ability to compete on all three downs." White is shaping up as the primary backup to both Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.

  • Teddy Bridgewater 'closing the gap' on Cassel
    NFL Network's Albert Breer's "sense is" Teddy Bridgewater has "closed the gap" on Matt Cassel.

    Advice: This is certainly the way the wind is blowing. One report even indicated Bridgewater handled more first-team throws than Cassel at Wednesday's practice, by a 13 to 11 count. Christian Ponder opened camp sprinkled in with the ones, but his reps have gone to Teddy. Of all this year's rookie quarterbacks, Bridgewater has emerged as the likeliest to start his team's season opener.

  • Toliver headed for second opinion on foot
    Bears WR Terrance Toliver is seeking a second opinion on his injured foot.

    Advice: Toliver has been sidelined a week with what the Bears fear could be a small fracture in his foot, which would likely end his season. A prototypical Bears receiver at 6-5/204, Toliver is a dark horse to make the team if his health cooperates.

  • Stephen Hill looking 'healthy and confident'
    Jets WRs coach Sanjay Lal called Stephen Hill "healthy and confident" through the first week of camp.

    Advice: "I think he's believing, and believing in himself - and it's starting to show," Lal said. "It's been the injuries that have hindered (him). ... He's taken the coaching the whole time. Now, he's able to do it physically, so it's just kind of coming together." It's notable, as Lal's comments come one month after he said he was "unsure" if Hill would ever break through because of his health. Hill remains a long-shot to make a fantasy impact this season, but the upside is there. He's someone to monitor.

  • Bridgewater, Cassel to begin splitting reps
    Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel will begin evenly splitting first-team reps on Wednesday.

    Advice: FOX's Jay Glazer reported Sunday that was already the case. The Vikings had been including Christian Ponder in their quarterback rotation, but are ready to drop his token participation. Bridgewater has generated a ton of early camp buzz, but needs to translate it to strong preseason performances to beat out Cassel for Week 1 duties. Either way, Bridgewater will make starts this season.

  • James White gaining buzz early in camp
    According to, fourth-round RB James White "is quickly becoming one of the camp's top phenoms and is the team's leading rookie."

    Advice: White is getting plenty of first-team reps in both the Stevan Ridley power role and the Shane Vereen passing back spot. It's reportedly "clear" that he has "exceptional skills and moves with the confidence of a veteran" as he runs ahead of Brandon Bolden. White is on our flier radar.

    FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports rookie Teddy Bridgewater has already begun splitting first-team reps with Matt Cassel at Vikings camp.

    Advice: Glazer reports there is "hugeeee optimism" about Bridgewater among team brass, and he's "definitely been more impressive than they expected." Cassel remains the slight favorite to start on Opening Day, but Bridgewater has quickly made it an interesting camp battle. Bridgewater's passing strengths are at the short and intermediate levels. He could be a great fit with Kyle Rudolph.
