  • Lance Dunbar will be involved in the offense
    ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer said RB Lance Dunbar "will finally become a viable part of the offense."

    Advice: An explosive back with Shane Vereenian skills, Dunbar has the passing-game chops to form a dynamic partnership with presumed starter Joseph Randle. With Darren McFadden already sidelined by injuries, Dunbar could end up with the second most snaps in the Cowboys' backfield. He is an interesting flier in deeper PPR leagues.

  • Jets rookie WR Devin Smith has fractured ribs
    Second-round WR Devin Smith suffered broken ribs in the first practice of Jets camp and may miss all of the preseason.

    Advice: Smith has been hospitalized with the painful injury. It should be emphasized that Smith broke multiple ribs, not just one. The injury occurred while Smith was "making a leaping catch" in Friday's practice. The 37th pick in this year's draft, Smith was going to compete for third receiver duties with Jeremy Kerley behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. While we didn't have high hopes for Smith's re-draft league prospects, so much lost practice time in OC Chan Gailey's system may prevent Smith from making any meaningful early-season impact.

  • Saints TE Orson Charles suspended one game
    NFL suspended Saints TE Orson Charles one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

    Advice: Charles was arrested last April for a road rage incident. He won't count against the Week 1 roster if he makes the team. 24-year-old Charles is competing for a role behind Josh Hill and Ben Watson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:24 pm

  • Saints activate Marques Colston
    Saints activated WR Marques Colston from the active/PUP list.

    Advice: Colston's injury was never disclosed. The Saints intend to take it easy on their declining 32-year-old slot receiver, probably for most of camp. "We have to be smart with where Marques is at," coach Sean Payton acknowledged. "The reps are one thing, but making sure he’s getting into football shape. ... I think we’ll do a good job with some veteran players, he being one of them." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:33 pm

  • Tevin Coleman rotating with 2s at camp
    Third-round pick Tevin Coleman opened Falcons camp rotating with the second-team offense along with Antone Smith.

    Advice: Devonta Freeman is working with the ones. Coleman has the pass-protection chops and big-play running ability to put heat on Freeman and perhaps even swipe his starting job by the end of August. With teams not yet going all out in pads, this battle figures to rage on throughout all four preseason games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:05 pm

  • Rod Streater opens camp on active/NFI
    Raiders placed WR Rod Streater on the active/NFI list.

    Advice: Streater reportedly looked healthy and explosive at spring practices, coming off last year's fractured foot. So his placement on the NFI list is a surprise. Typically in these cases, the player failed his conditioning test. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:51 am

  • Caldwell: No timetable for Joique Bell return
    Coach Jim Caldwell offered no timetable for Joique Bell's (knee, Achilles') return at Lions camp Friday.

    Advice: Caldwell did say Bell is "coming along quickly," though that's hard to fathom after Joique missed the entire spring and wasn't available for the start of training camp. "We’re just majorly concerned right now with obviously getting him healthy," Caldwell insisted. "And he’s well on his way to that." Bell turns 29 next month and has undergone three lower-leg surgeries over the past two offseasons. Ameer Abdullah is now running with the ones. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:37 am

  • Trent Richardson out as Raiders camp starts
    Raiders placed RB Trent Richardson on the active/NFI list.

    Advice: No explanation has been given yet, but we should get details soon. It seems likely Richardson failed to pass his conditioning test. The San Francisco Chronicle recently passed along "whispers" that the Raiders' flyer on T-Rich is "not going so well." Richardson appears to be squarely on the roster bubble.

  • Perriman day to day with knee bruise
    Breshad Perriman is "day to day" after suffering a knee injury at Ravens camp on Thursday.

    Advice: The Ravens say Perriman's knee injury is a bruise. With Perriman on the shelf at Friday's practice, fill-in Kamar Aiken dropped two passes. Perriman figures to be back on the practice field by no later than early next week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 am

  • Green-Beckham ballooned to 246 lbs. in spring
    Dorial Green-Beckham revealed he weighed 246 pounds at the end of offseason practices.

    Advice: It's nine pounds heavier than his Combine listing, where Green-Beckham weighed in at 6'5/237. DGB missed the entire offseason due to a hamstring injury, which presumably contributed to his weight gain. He says he's down to 240 pounds now, and hopes to get to 230 by the end of camp. DGB is battling Harry Douglas, Hakeem Nicks, and Justin Hunter for snaps opposite Kendall Wright. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:13 am

  • Brandon Coleman getting lots of early targets
    Saints WR Brandon Coleman has seen "a lot of throws" early in training camp, while mixing in with both the starters and backups.

    Advice: Beat writer Mike Triplett hints Coleman has pulled ahead of Seantavius Jones in their battle for snaps. Coleman still needs to gain ground on Nick Toon and/or Marques Colston to become a 2015 fantasy factor, however. Coming out of Rutgers in 2014, Coleman ran a 4.56 forty at 6-foot-6 and 225 pounds.

  • Packers WR Abbrederis suffers concussion
    Packers WR Jared Abbrederis suffered a concussion in Thursday's training camp practice.

    Advice: He'll have to make his way through the league's concussion protocol before returning to practice. Last year's fifth-round pick, Abbrederis missed his rookie year with a torn ACL. He needs as many reps as possible this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 am

  • Patriots WR Aaron Dobson in 'great shape'
    Coach Bill Belichick said WR Aaron Dobson reported to camp in "great shape" and "put himself in good position."

    Advice: Dobson's first two seasons were ruined by injuries. By all accounts, he's healthy for 2015. He'll have to keep it that way as he competes for a role behind Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell. Dobson will be a player to keep an eye on in camp and preseason after the Patriots didn't add any receiver help. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:22 am

  • Terrelle Pryor shined on day one of camp
    ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi called Terrelle Pryor "the most intriguing player on hand," at Browns camp, and "a possible playmaker who could be a game-changer."

    Advice: On the opening day of Browns camp, Pryor stole the show. He didn't drop a single pass and "looked like a natural" at receiver after having never played the position at any level. "I’ve never seen anybody make that transformation in person," said CB Joe Haden. "It looks like it would work." The thing Pryor has going for him is no other Browns receiver has his size-athleticism combo. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:37 am

  • Bengals waive WR Cobi Hamilton
    Bengals waived WR Cobi Hamilton.

    Advice: A 2013 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas, Hamilton was never much of a receiving prospect and didn't make enough special teams noise to earn a game-day roster spot. The 24-year-old should generate scant interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:22 pm

  • Titans don't want to 'over-rep' Green-Beckham
    The Titans don't want to "over-rep" Dorial Green-Beckham early in training camp, and will limit the packages he's involved in.

    Advice: Green-Beckham is being babied along after missing all of OTAs with a hamstring injury. It's far from ideal for a player who enters the league as an exceptionally-raw prospect. DGB oozes upside, but it's hard to see him making a consistent re-draft impact as a rookie. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:45 am

  • Breshad Perriman opens camp with the starters
    Ravens rookie WR Breshad Perriman ran with the starters as training camp opened Thursday.

    Advice: The WR-needy Ravens didn't use the No. 26 overall pick on Perriman to have him sit. Although Kamar Aiken soaked up plenty of first-team reps during the spring, Perriman is the prototypical size/speed specimen that will have to fall flat on his face to lose the job. With only 36-year-old Steve Smith and unproven tight ends as competition for targets, Perriman has value at his ninth-round ADP. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:34 am

  • Raiders' flyer on T-Rich 'not going so well'
    The San Francisco Chronicle passes along "whispers" that the Raiders' reclamation flyer on Trent Richardson is "not going so well."

    Advice: Beat writer Vic Tafur doesn't elaborate beyond that. In early July, OL coach Mike Tice stated T-Rich shed weight this offseason, helping some of his old quickness to return. More-objective observers of Raiders practice must not have seen much from Richardson in the way of positives. Owed only $600,000 in guaranteed money on his two-year, $3.85 million deal, Richardson would be easy to cut. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:00 pm

  • Joique Bell still seen as DET likely starter
    Despite Joique Bell's (Achilles'/knee) continued absence from the practice field, the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett expects Bell to open the season as the "Lions' primary starting running back."

    Advice: Even amid a host of red flags, Lions beat writers maintain Joique is likely to open the season as Detroit's lead runner. Birkett does acknowledge Bell "and (Ameer) Abdullah will share the workload, though." Bell, who has undergone two knee scopes and one Achilles' surgery over the past two offseasons, missed all of OTAs and minicamp and opened training camp on the active/PUP list.

  • Joique Bell still shelved as Lions camp opens
    Lions placed RB Joique Bell on the active/PUP list.

    Advice: The Lions plan to move Bell along slowly after offseason knee/Achilles surgeries. Detroit is reportedly more concerned with his health this year than in 2014. Bell will miss the start of camp, allowing rookie Ameer Abdullah to open with the starters. Bell is a player to avoid in fantasy drafts this year, especially with his ADP still hovering in the fifth- to sixth-round range. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:48 pm

  • Brandon Coleman 'on the rise' at Saints camp
    ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett reports WR Brandon Coleman is "playing faster and more at ease" this summer after struggling as a rookie.

    Advice: Coleman had a tough time adjusting to the speed of the NFL as a priority UDFA last year, dropping passes on a daily basis. He was part of the Saints' final cuts and spent his entire rookie year on the practice squad. Coleman is competing with Joe Morgan, Josh Morgan and Seantavius Jones for two roster spots. Triplett calls Coleman a player "on the rise" who could become a red-zone threat. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:42 pm

  • Marques Colston beginning camp on PUP list
    Saints placed WR Marques Colston on the active/PUP list.

    Advice: Colston's "injury" is undisclosed. He shouldn't be sidelined more than a couple of days. Colston is on the record as expecting his practice reps to be "managed" all season. The Saints don't need to push their 32-year-old wideout in camp and the preseason. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:19 pm

  • Browns haven't thrown in towel on Pryor at QB
    Browns coach Mike Pettine hasn't closed the door on Terrelle Pryor at quarterback, but wants him to focus "1,000 percent" on receiver for training camp.

    Advice: Perhaps Pettine is beginning to confront the reality that Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel are his top-two quarterbacks. For his part, Pryor believes he's competing as a "slash" player, someone who dabbles at quarterback while getting touches elsewhere. Pryor will undoubtedly be one of the 53 most talented players in Browns camp, it's just a matter of if he can find a role. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:12 pm

  • Breshad Perriman projected as starter
    ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley projects first-round pick Breshad Perriman as the starting wideout opposite Steve Smith Sr.

    Advice: This may seem obvious to most considering Perriman's first-round pedigree, but Perriman only rotated with the first team at spring practices, sharing time with Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown. Aiken actually got the most reps with the ones. Hensley acknowledges Perriman is "trying to beat out" Aiken and Brown. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 am
