  • Forsett expects to get majority of carries
    Justin Forsett expects to get the majority of carries this season.

    Advice: The Ravens project as a committee this year, with Buck Allen spelling Forsett on pass downs. Forsett is entering his age-31 season and coming off an injury-shortened 2015, but says he still thinks he can be a 200 carry, 1,000-yard rusher. Baltimore's running back situation is a training camp storyline worth monitoring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:09 pm

Despite only entering his age-28 season, it's a surprise any team was willing to give him a shot. Nicks will compete for the Saints' No. 5 receiver job. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:30 pm

  • Mike Wallace fails Ravens' conditioning test
    Mike Wallace failed the conditioning test to open Ravens' training camp.

    Advice: He'll get another chance to pass it on Thursday. But until Wallace does pass, he won't be able to practice and could open camp on the active/NFI list. All in all, it's not a huge deal for a soon-to-be 30-year-old veteran, but hints Wallace may have developed some laziness during the summer break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:04 pm

  • Bruce Ellington to be 49ers' 'breakout' WR?
    The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes Bruce Ellington is in "excellent position" to be the 49ers' "breakout player" on offense.

    Advice: As noted by Barrows, coach Chip Kelly has been talking up Ellington ever since Kelly took over in San Francisco. Small, but quick, Ellington has the ability to line up in the backfield and play the slot. He could be that piece Kelly loves to move around and get the ball into his hands. With just 19 career catches through two seasons, it's not out of the question that Ellington leads the team in catches this season with Torrey Smith operating as the big-play threat on the outside.

  • Jeremy Langford put on 8-10 lbs in offseason
    ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Jeremy Langford packed on 8-10 pounds in an effort to handle an "increased role" in the backfield.

    Advice: Langford tipped the scales at 208 at last year's Combine and is listed at 211 by the Bears. Per Caplan, he's now in the 219-220 range. It's conceivable Langford will shed some water weight this summer in the heat, but this could be taken as a red flag. It's hard to get behind running backs putting on this much weight because it's hard for them to keep their speed and quickness. Langford is viewing it as a positive so he can handle a larger workload. We'll see how he looks in the preseason, but Langford already had problems making tacklers miss as a rookie.

  • Gates aiming to break Tony Gonzalez's TD mark
    Philip Rivers said one goal of the 2016 season is to get Antonio Gates at least eight touchdowns to break Tony Gonzalez's tight end touchdowns record.

    Advice: With 104 career touchdowns, Gates needs eight to pass Gonzalez's mark of 111 for sixth all time and first among tight ends. Considering Gates was still able to score five times last season despite missing the first four games and limping through the second half of the calendar with a sprained MCL, we'd consider it likely he passes Gonzalez.

He reported to the team considerably overweight, looked badly out of shape in side-field conditioning drills at minicamp, and was slapped with a four-game suspension for violating the substance-abuse policy.

    Advice: This is music to the ears of Charles truthers, but Teicher did add a big caveat. Charles will be 30 in December and is coming off his second knee surgery in the last four years. He also has company in the backfield after Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West combined for 1,256 total yards and 11 scores last season.

    Advice: This is likely more of a statement on how much the Cowboys will lean on Elliott than a prediction of his final carry total, but it is not a completely insane number. DeMarco Murray had 392 carries just two seasons ago, and Darren McFadden averaged over 18 carries a game after he took over last year.

Per the Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn, "estimates in June" were that Lacy had dropped 15-20 pounds, bringing his weight into the 240-245 range. One NFC personnel director noted post-college weight gains aren't out of the norm for ex-Alabama running backs. "Trent Richardson was like 20 pounds heavier when he reported (to the Colts) than when he came out of there," said the executive. "He lost all his quickness.

    Advice: "I think he's going to get a lot of carries," said Davison. "You don't use the fourth overall pick on (a running back) you don't plan to ride hard. With that said, I don't see him coming close to DeMarco Murray's 392 carries from two years ago. But I still think he should get close to 300, if not 300-plus carries ... because they're definitely going to focus on the running game, kinda go back to the Ground-N-Pound team they had in 2014."
