Player Notes

  • White leading the third-down back competition
    Sophomore RB James White worked with the first team as the third-down back in Patriots' camp.

    Advice: CSN New England's Tom Curran said it "seems" the Patriots are going to give White the first crack to earn the third-down job vacated by Shane Vereen. Even if White wins the competition, he will likely cede touches to Travaris Cadet, Dion Lewis or Brandon Bolden at times during the season. It is unlikely any of the Patriots' passing-down options earn the almost 10 touches a game Vereen saw the last two seasons. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago

  • 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.

  • Court dates set in Tom Brady's lawsuit
    U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman ordered Tom Brady and Roger Goodell to appear in court for two conferences on Aug. 12 and 19.

    Advice: Berman requested the two sides "engage in comprehensive, good-faith settlement discussions prior to the conference on August 12." Though the judge did not mention the NFL's and NFLPA's joint request to have the case resolved by Sept. 4, the immediacy of the conferences suggests a resolution could be handed down quickly. Hopefully this ridiculous episode will come to an end before the season begins. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:31 am

  • Cowboys offense 'not going to change'
    Cowboys OC Scott Linehan said the team's run-heavy strategy is "not going to change" despite the departure of DeMarco Murray.

    Advice: Dallas successfully used a high-volume rushing attack to hide their deficiencies on defense and Tony Romo's ailing back last season. Romo is as healthy as he as been in several years, but the defense is still suspect and the Cowboys still have one of the best lines in the league. The issue for Linehan is at the running back position, where he is saddled with unproven talents like Joseph Randle or washed-up veterans like Darren McFadden. If Randle can prove his flashes last season are sustainable, he could allow the Cowboys to continue their ground-and-pound success from a year ago and turn into a fantasy monster in the process. If he cannot handle the workload, however, Dallas may have to find a new offensive identity on the fly. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:16 am

  • Fisher talks Gurley's recovery
    Coach Jeff Fisher said Friday the Rams are "very, very encouraged" with Todd Gurley's (ACL) recovery, but acknowledged Gurley is "not 100 percent" or ready to play in football games.

    Advice: "Todd did a great job on the conditioning test," Fisher said. "He's not 100 percent. He's not ready to play in a game right now. ... We'll just kind of add things as we move forward." Gurley has been limited to individual drills so far in training camp. We might see him play in the third preseason game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
