  • Jarius Wright playing slot role for Vikings
    Jarius Wright is penned in as the Vikings' slot receiver.

    Advice: Charles Johnson and Mike Wallace will monopolize outside snaps, leaving Wright to move inside as Greg Jennings' replacement. That's no problem for the 5'10/190 Wright, who caught eight passes for 130 yards on 85 routes run out of the slot last year. He's slippery and quick after the catch. Rotoworld.com 31 minutes ago

  • Taliaferro looked 'very strong' in spring
    Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro reportedly looked "very strong" during OTAs.

    Advice: Taliaferro is the heavy favorite to win the early-down backup job behind Justin Forsett. Fourth-round rookie Buck Allen projects as the backup on passing downs. Taliaferro flashed at times as a rookie, averaging 4.29 YPC on 68 rushes and turning four of those into touchdowns. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago

  • 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 Yesterday, 10:00 pm

  • Jerry Rice compares Amari Cooper to Tim Brown
    Jerry Rice compared Raiders first-round pick Amari Cooper to Tim Brown.

    Advice: Rice played with Brown late in his career, and watched Cooper practice during spring workouts. "Very much like Tim Brown," is how Rice described Cooper. "Very explosive, got speed to burn." It's high praise from the G.O.A.T., who still has a good handle on the game. Brown was a nine-time Pro Bowler who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame early next month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm

  • Cordarrelle Patterson working with the 2s
    Cordarrelle Patterson opened Vikings training camp working with the second-team offense.

    Advice: Coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday he's seen "improvement" from Patterson, though Zimmer stated less than a week ago that Patterson's practice-in, practice-out consistency has remained frustrating. Patterson will likely settle in as the Vikings' kickoff returner and fourth receiver on offense this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:06 pm

  • Chargers high on Ladarius Green
    Chargers OC Frank Reich says he would be "shocked" if TE Ladarius Green "didn't have his most productive year."

    Advice: Green will get every opportunity to earn an increased role in training camp and the first four games of the season, when Antonio Gates will be serving a month-long suspension. It's worth noting Reich made this statement before Gates' ban was announced. Still only 25 years old, Green should be on the TE1 radar in the first four games. His role thereafter is up in the air.

    Chargers OC Frank Reich says his early impressions of first-round pick Melvin Gordon are "incredibly, incredibly positive."

    Advice: "You can see he has great vision. You can see he has great patience," Reich observed. "And he's just got great physical ability. ... I don't want to say too much because he's got to do it. But I'm just very excited about him, like off-the-charts excited." The 15th pick in the draft, Gordon offers double-digit TD upside as the lead runner in a proficient offense and is priced reasonably at a third-round ADP. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 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.

    The Dolphins have had preliminary extension talks with Lamar Miller.

    Advice: With one of the worst 2016 cap situations, Miami "can’t say for sure" if they’ll be able to keep Miller. The Dolphins reportedly view Jay Ajayi as a three-down back, but his balky knee makes Ajayi an unlikely long-term solution. Miller is making just $660K in the final year of his rookie deal.

    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 Yesterday, 2:48 pm

  • Roddy White needing repeated knee draining
    Roddy White had his knee drained prior to June minicamp and expects the knee to be drained again during the 2015 season.

    Advice: Knee drainings are generally routine, non-surgical procedures, but may be concerning for White coming off back-to-back injury-plagued seasons. White actually hinted doctors told him to have surgery, but he is going to play through the knee "irritation" instead. "It's not a concern to me because it's just like a little irritation," said White. "My cartilage in my knee is not smooth. It's kind of rippled. You can elect to have surgery, but I just decided not to because I'm not a surgery guy. I just don't want to do it." White turns 34 this November. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:29 pm

    Bears placed WR Kevin White (shin) on active/PUP.

    Advice: White has been battling the shin issue for a while now, as he also sat out all of minicamp. It doesn't sound overly serious, but White is missing important time with the offense.

    Advice: If second-round pick Devin Funchess seizes a starting job and Corey "Philly" Brown earns a role as a situational deep threat in three-receiver sets, Cotchery could be the odd man out. The Panthers also have Ted Ginn to dress on game days for his special teams value after signing him to a two-year, $4.2 million deal. Cotchery, 33, is owed $1.5 million in salary and bonuses.

    Advice: As expected. Parker underwent surgery last month to have a screw replaced in his previously-operated foot. The No. 14 overall pick is expected to avoid the reserve/PUP list to open the season, which would cost him the first six games, but he's questionable for Week 1 and not expected to get much work in camp.

    Advice: Coach Mike McCarthy had a "long conversation" with Quarless, and admitted both sides were "disappointed" in Quarless' actions. Still, the Packers appear to have no intention of cutting Quarless, who remains on track to start at in-line tight end while Richard Rodgers operates as the lightly-used flex player.

    Adrian Peterson told NFL Network he didn't feel as explosive as usual when he began practicing with the Vikings at minicamp.

    Advice: This note should fuel fantasy skeptics who think A.P. won't be the same at age 30 coming off a lost season. "It was decent but really didn't feel as explosive as I would have liked," said Peterson. "So I kind of had to grind, normally I do my hulk, little grind, wake myself up and felt a little spark and kind of got back into the groove. After that I feel pretty good. That hunger is there.

  • Bengals OC: We're going to open it up this year
    Bengals OC Hue Jackson said, "We're going to open it up a little bit more this year and be who I think we can be."

    Advice: "We're going to open Pandora's box more," Jackson said. "We tickled it a little bit last year. ... It's a chess match, and whoever is not afraid to pull the trigger, pull the trigger. And I'm not afraid, so let's go." The potential for this offense is through the roof and vastly undervalued in fantasy because of the perception of Andy Dalton. But Dalton was playing with a short deck last season where Mohamed Sanu was his No. 1 receiver in a number of games. With A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert healthy and Jeremy Hill entering year two, Cincinnati is going to put up points. Dalton, whose 33-TD season in 2013 has seemingly been forgotten, will have his fair share of top-10 fantasy weeks this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 am

    The Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak considers Travis Benjamin the early odd man out in the Browns receiving corps.

    Advice: Benjamin is a seldom-used deep threat who must show he can return kicks to make the team. Last season, Benjamin disappointed as a return man, averaging just 21 yards on kick returns and 2.4 yards per punt return while grading out as PFF's worst returner. Benjamin is pint-sized at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:20 am

  • Philbin open to more carries for Lamar Miller
    Dolphins coach Joe Philbin says the team is open to giving Lamar Miller more carries in 2015.

    Advice: Miller notoriously failed to hit 20 carries in any game last year, despite averaging an explosive 5.09 yards per tote in one of the NFL's most efficient rushing offenses. Miller did handle 19 carries in each of Miami's final two games, however, and Philbin left the door open for Miller to be treated more like a workhorse this year. "I would tell you I’ve never been in a meeting where I’ve said to [OC] Bill [Lazor] or [RBs coach] Jeff Nixon or the offensive line coaches (that) ‘Lamar can’t carry the ball 20 times a game. He can’t do it,’" Philbin insisted. "I’ve never heard that. That’s never come out of my mouth. ... I would tell you, if he’s cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he’s healthy and he’s fast and he’s explosive, it doesn’t bother me one bit." If Philbin stays true to his word, Miller will offer high-end RB1 upside after finishing 2014 as fantasy's No. 9 overall back. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:28 am

  • Zimmer: C. Patterson still lacks consistency
    Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that Cordarrelle Patterson's consistency has remained an issue on the practice field.

    Advice: "He'll have really good days, and then he'll have some not-so-good days," Zimmer said. "Really, I think what he needs to do is just the consistency every single day and the consistency in studying, the consistency in getting extra help that he needs if he needs it, running the routes the same all the time." Behind Charles Johnson, Mike Wallace, and Jarius Wright on the depth chart, Patterson is unlikely to contribute in fantasy this year. Added Zimmer, "To me, the biggest thing with him is that: Does he want to be 'Flash' or does he want to be a great receiver? I'm not trying to dog him or anything, but that's really what it is."

    Asked Monday about Adrian Peterson's workload, coach Mike Zimmer replied "He'll get as much as he can take."

    Advice: "Adrian's going to get the heavy workload," said Zimmer, a defensive-minded coach. "As much as he can take, and as much as he can handle in all the things that we're doing. Obviously, we're going to have to spell him at times like you do a lot of guys. But we get down on the goal line, and we're probably not pulling him out, you know? He's our best player, and we're going to continue to use him." Peterson's age (30) and lost 2014 season may be concerns for his 2015 outlook.

    Advice: Parker will open camp on the active/PUP list, but Philbin remains optimistic about his regular-season status. "It's hard to predict if Week 1 he'll be ready for 30 snaps or 60 snaps," Philbin said. "We're not there yet. Right now he's been working, doing what he can do. And you got to let that stuff heal."

OC Norv Turner said last month that Patterson is still a candidate to start, while his offseason reports have generally been positive. Patterson will open the season behind Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson, with Jarius Wright manning the slot.

    Free agent TE Jermaine Gresham is visiting the Packers.

    Advice: Gresham's trip to Green Bay comes two days after he visited the Cardinals. He'd provide versatile depth behind the underwhelming duo of Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers. Signing Gresham could also make Quarless expendable following his early-July arrest on gun charges. When and where Gresham signs depends on the status of his surgically-repaired back.

    Adrian Peterson's new three-year contract has a base value of $44 million.

In exchange for just a $750,000 cut, Peterson gets a fully-guaranteed $11 million base salary this season, plus a $2 million roster bonus on July 28. Although some outlets are reporting Peterson has $7 million guaranteed in 2016, it is actually guaranteed for injury only. The Vikings will have to make a decision on A.D. next spring, when he's due a $5 million roster bonus in early March.

    The Vikings and Adrian Peterson have agreed to restructure the final three years of his contract.

    Advice: Early in the offseason, Peterson made it seem like he was upset with the Vikings for turning their back on him during the child abuse scandal. In reality, he wanted more guaranteed money over the next two years of his contract. Although details aren't out yet, this restructure almost certainly accomplishes that. His base salary numbers over the next three years will come down, but his guarantees will go up. Peterson, who turned 30 in March, will be with the Vikings for at least two more years.

  • Dolphins haven't rode Miller hard in past
    Lamar Miller never got 20 carries in a game last year and only went over 15 carries in 6-of-16 games.

    Advice: Miller was highly productive, averaging a gaudy 5.08 YPC, catching 38 balls and scoring nine total touchdowns. But he was handed the ball just 13.5 times per game even though the Dolphins only had pitiful Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams as backups in the wake of Knowshon Moreno's injuries. Now the staff has talented Jay Ajayi to pound between the tackles, giving them another excuse not to turn Miller into a bellcow. We're not expecting more than 13-15 carries per game this year either.
