    Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) won't be ready for the start of camp.

    Advice: The Seahawks have been adamant that Graham will be ready for Week 1, but we'd consider him a candidate for the reserve/PUP list until proven otherwise. Graham can't be trusted as more than a flier TE2 in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com 34 minutes ago

    Advice: Rawls had previously insisted he'd be full-go for the start of camp. Either way, coach Pete Carroll maintains Rawls will be ready for Week 1. It's concerning Rawls still isn't 100 percent after going down last December, but it's been the belief all along that he will be ready for the opener.

  • Falcons want RB Coleman to catch more passes
    The Falcons want to get second-year RB Tevin Coleman more involved as a pass catcher this season.

    Advice: At least once a week, the Falcons talk about getting last year's third-rounder more touches. "They’re finding more ways to get the backs out there and get them the ball," Coleman said. "So it’s going to be exciting for us to be back there and get the ball more than just running." Catching the ball is one of Devonta Freeman's fantasy firewalls after he notched 73 receptions last season, but Coleman had decent hands in college. The Falcons seem deadly serious about having more of a committee this season, but Freeman's red zone and third-down work still have him on the RB1/2 borderline. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

    Advice: In other words, he'll be making the 53-man roster. All but assured of No. 3 receiver duties, Boldin will probably be in the 50-catch range behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Eric Ebron may be most hurt by Boldin's addition. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:48 am

    Advice: "I don't want to break the bank, but I want a fair deal," he said. "Fair deal" disclaimer or not, it's an indication Sanders might take a bit of a discount to remain in Denver. Sanders has been extremely productive the past two years, but his value is a bit hard to peg as a smallish No. 2 receiver who turns 30 next March. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:33 am

"I heal fast." Doctson did add he doesn't plan to rush his rehab. "It’s going to be a long year, so I’ve got plenty of time."

    Advice: Rapsheet calls it a "minor injury," but Dixon will probably be on the shelf for at least a week. ESPN's Adam Schefter says he's day today. It's a blow for a day-three pick who has (had?) a chance to put himself in the mix for a big early-season role. It helps solidify both Justin Forsett and Buck Allen's standing as the Nos. 1 and 2 on the depth chart. Dixon could still make noise if he recovers quickly and has an impressive preseason.

There's no question Tate is the bigger playmaker out of the slot at this point in their respective careers, but perhaps he'll cede the middle to Boldin in some three-receiver sets. Boldin will take targets from each of Tate, Marvin Jones, Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick, but not enough from any to stall their fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:20 am

    Advice: Even with Fitz back in the fold, the Jets have questions at quarterback. Second-round pick Christian Hackenberg is guaranteed a roster spot, but he is unlikely to be ready for a backup role this year. Smith could serve as the backup, but keeping him would require New York to either cut Petty after just one season or retain four quarterbacks, which would hurt the depth at another position. Ultimately, we expect Petty to be the odd man out. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:48 am

Unfortunately for Forsett, the Ravens project as a committee this year, with Buck Allen spelling Forsett on pass downs.

    Rams released QB Nick Foles.

    Advice: It's been a move long in the making.

    Advice: Gordon got hurt working out on his own this summer, and will miss a "couple of weeks." It's obviously the last thing Gordon needed after being suspended 27 of the past 32 games.

  • Warhorse Boldin headed to DET on 1-year deal
    Lions agreed to terms with WR Anquan Boldin on a one-year contract.

    Advice: Boldin visited the Lions last month. Boldin still had plenty left in the tank for the pathetic 49ers last season, catching 69 passes in 14 games as he dealt with bottom-three quarterback play. Still, going on 36, he's headed to the Lions as a No. 3 receiver. He'll cut into Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, and Eric Ebron's targets, but shouldn't destroy their fantasy value. As a standalone option, Boldin probably won't be more than a WR5. It's a big addition for a Lions team moving on from Calvin Johnson, but not a major fantasy event. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:45 am

    Advice: Crowell threw himself into hot water by posting a disturbing photo on his Instagram account earlier this month, but he has seemed genuinely apologetic since the incident and has spent time trying to repair his relationship with law enforcement. Considering he is still on the roster, it looks as if the Browns plan to give him a chance to redeem himself.

Even so, with Freeman dominating the passing-down and red-zone work, it is tough to see Coleman carrying any standalone value while Freeman is healthy.

  • Bombshell: Josh Gordon can return Week 5
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon will be reinstated after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season.

    Advice: It's somewhat shocking news. Gordon's career appeared to be on the brink at times this offseason, but he's kept his head down since an unfortunate spring. Gordon's reinstatement is conditional, but he will be allowed to participate in training camp. That's a perk few banned players get. It means Gordon should be in near peak shape when he returns in Week 5. It's important to remember that Gordon has played in just five NFL games over the past two years, but he's still only 25 years old. He's a mid-round pick who will be an immediate WR3 upon his return, and perhaps a WR1 by the time it's all said and done. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:00 am

    ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim projects Jamison Crowder as a starter ahead of first-rounder Josh Doctson.

    Advice: The Redskins have spent the offseason raving about their second-year slot man, leaving another obstacle for Doctson to hurdle as he hunts for rookie year snaps. We still wouldn't be surprised if Doctson eventually nudged by Crowder, or even Pierre Garcon, in three-receiver sets, but these aren't artificial hoops. Doctson should be viewed more as a Dynasty league stash than immediate re-draft contributor in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:56 am

  • Josh Gordon met with Goodell on Wednesday
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports suspended WR Josh Gordon met with Roger Goodell on Wednesday "regarding his return to football."

    Advice: Gordon is eligible to apply for reinstatement on August 1. While it is difficult to see this development as anything but a good sign, Rapoport cautioned this type of meeting is "a normal step in the process." Gordon did himself few favors by hanging out with Johnny Manziel for a good portion of the offseason, but it looks like he at least has a shot to play this season. The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot believes the Browns would welcome Gordon back if he gains reinstatement. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:00 am

  • Beat reporter lists Mike Wallace as a starter
    ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley listed Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace as the starting receivers.

    Advice: Smith should be locked into one of the spots if he is healthy, but the inclusion of Wallace is more interesting. Although Wallace was signed to a two-year, $11.5 million deal in March, Kamar Aiken has gotten more buzz this offseason. Breshad Perriman (knee) should also be involved if he is able to come back healthy. Like seemingly every other position on offense, the Ravens have a lot of questions to answer at receiver during training camp. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:50 am

  • Browns aren't committed to dropping Gordon
    The Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the Browns could welcome suspended WR Josh Gordon back if he's reinstated when first eligible in August.

    Advice: ESPN's Pat McManamon guessed in May that the team would move on from the troubled wideout, but beat writer May Kay Cabot believes new coach Hue Jackson will be "surprised" by Gordon. Cabot expects Jackson to "look (Gordon) in the eyes and try to determine if he's as committed as he needs to be." For all the headaches he's caused, it's hard to believe the Browns would move on from a player as talented as Gordon. Unlike Johnny Manziel, he's an actual star, and his transgressions have been less serious. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:02 pm

  • Crowell attended Dallas officer's funeral
    Isaiah Crowell attended fallen Dallas police officer Patrick Zamarripa's funeral over the weekend and was commended by the Dallas Fallen Officers Foundation for doing it.

    Advice: It's been a handful of days since Crowell became the story of the league for all the wrong reasons, but since his unfortunate, distasteful Instagram post, he's done and said all the right things. At Zamarripa's funeral, Crowell met with several police officers from around the country, educated himself, and expressed his deepest condolences. Crowell's spot on the Browns' roster looked a bit shaky at one point last week, but he seems to be on firmer ground now. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:48 pm

  • Schefter: Siemian starter talk is legitimate
    Appearing on Sirius XM Radio, ESPN's Adam Schefter said Trevor Siemian has a serious chance to be the Broncos' starting quarterback.

    Advice: "The Trevor Siemian talk and chatter is real," stated Schefter. "He has a legitimate chance to win the job ... the competition is real." We feel like this may say more about Mark Sanchez than Siemian, whose college resume in no way suggested he might have any chance to become an NFL starter. The fact that first-round pick Paxton Lynch is so clearly behind Siemian and Sanchez may also be a concern. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 1:05 pm

  • Study shows Graham's injury most devastating
    A study from the American Journal of Sports Medicine revealed patellar tendon repair is the most difficult surgery for an NFL player to return from.

    Advice: "Of all the different surgeries that these guys have," ESPN injury analyst Stephania Bell said, "those who fared the worst when it comes to rate of return to play and performance metrics like yards gained and touchdowns scored, [it was] patellar tendon repair." Jimmy Graham suffered a ruptured patellar tendon late in November, but the Seahawks have said they expect him to return by Week 1. Anecdotal evidence including Victor Cruz's almost two-year battle to get back on the field suggests that timeline is extremely optimistic, and this study backs up that notion. Even if he gets back on the field, it is not a given he will be effective. Graham is overvalued at his current TE12 draft cost. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 8:34 am
