Player Notes

  • Stats show Brees has thrown better deep ball
    Drew Brees has improved his downfield accuracy over the last few seasons.

    Advice: According to ESPN Stats and Information, Brees completed just seven of 35 passes deeper than 40 yards with three touchdowns and five interceptions between 2009 and 2011. Over the last three seasons, he's 15-for-35 with seven touchdowns and no picks. With Kenny Stills gone, Brandin Cooks figures to be Brees' primary deep threat in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • RG3 thriving under QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's seen growth in Robert Griffin III under new QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh.

    Advice: Last year, the quarterbacks coach position was filled by Gruden himself. Cavanaugh has been coaching in the league since 1995, winning a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2000. "Bringing all that knowledge and experience, I think it’s helping everybody," said Griffin. As Griffin's fifth-year option for 2016 is not guaranteed, RG3 is entering a make-or-break season in Washington. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Mariota draws raves for accuracy
    Marcus Mariota drew raves for his accuracy in offseason workouts.

    Advice: "Unbelievable accuracy," WR Harry Douglas said. "Marcus has done everything he needs to get the ball to his receivers." The Titans are expecting Mariota to improve their short passing game, where they ranked 24th in yards after the catch last year. Mariota's accuracy should be a big upgrade for slot WR Kendall Wright.

  • Russell Wilson alludes to baseball career
    Russell Wilson said he'd "definitely consider" resuming his baseball career were he traded to the Seattle Mariners.

    Advice: Wilson's MLB rights are currently owned by the Texas Rangers. It's the second time in four months that Wilson has refused to close the door on his baseball career, but it's almost certainly just a negotiating ploy as he angles to become the NFL's highest-paid player. Going on 27, Wilson was good enough to play in the minor leagues, but has never been considered a high-end prospect. He's not going to be the next Deion Sanders or Bo Jackson. Rotoworld.com

  • Jags GM: Bortles had 'dead arm' as rookie
    Jaguars GM David Caldwell says Blake Bortles suffered from "dead arm" as a rookie.

    Advice: Bortles spent time late in the season on the injury report with a shoulder issue, and Caldwell says it gave way to a "dead arm" phase, a la a pitcher in baseball. It's not something you typically hear about in football, but we suppose it could happen to a rookie. By nearly every account — including Caldwell's — Bortles has improved his mechanics this offseason. A dual-threat who even the Jags admitted needed a "redshirt" year before taking over for an ineffective Chad Henne, Bortles has the ability to take a big step forward in 2015. Rotoworld.com
