Player Notes

  • Duke Johnson could be used on kick returns
    The Browns could use third-round RB Duke Johnson on kick returns.

    Advice: Johnson was a standout kick returner at Miami, averaging 30.7 yards and scoring two touchdowns. He could be an upgrade over Travis Benjamin, who averaged a career-worst 20.5 on kick returns last year. Johnson's offensive role will likely be limited to passing downs behind Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. Rotoworld.com

  • Dres Anderson practicing without knee brace
    49ers rookie WR Dres Anderson is practicing without a knee brace after tearing his MCL last October.

    Advice: A potential mid-round pick before the injury, Anderson's health concerns caused him to fall all the way out of the draft. A tall receiver with good straight-line speed, Anderson struggled with drops in college and lacks the short-area quickness to consistently create separation underneath. He will likely top out as a situational deep threat in the NFL. Rotoworld.com

  • Maxx Williams to play 'major role' as rookie
    CSN Baltimore's Clifton Brown believes TE Maxx Williams will play a "major role as a rookie."

    Advice: The Ravens jumped the Steelers in the second round to land Williams, and are expected to give him every opportunity to become a big factor. The problem is the transition from college tight end to NFL tight end is one of the most difficult. Tight ends very rarely play significant snaps their first year and are even less likely to be fantasy relevant as rookies. Williams has the hands and receiving ability to be an early contributor, but he will need a strong offseason to prove he is ready. Rotoworld.com

  • Buzz continues on Redskins rookie Matt Jones
    CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir believes rookie RB Matt Jones will have "a bigger role in 2015 than some are anticipating."

    Advice: El-Bashir concedes Alfred Morris is the starter but believes Jones will earn snaps as a third-down back. El-Bashir's colleague Rich Tandler agrees, saying Jones "will spend a lot of time catching passes and doing what he can to master pass protection" this offseason. Morris should be the early-down thumper, but he offers almost nothing in the passing game. If Jones is a quick study in pass protection, he should beat out Silas Redd and Chris Thompson for third-down duties. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman and Coleman will get 'equal reps'
    ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure believes Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman will see "equal reps" in a two-back system.

    Advice: It is unlikely Coleman and Freeman finish the season in a perfect timeshare, but it make sense for Atlanta to let their two young backs duke it out in training camp and early in the season. As the hand-picked back of the current regime, Coleman should be seen as the favorite to win the lion's share of the work, but his questionable fit in OC Kyle Shanahan's scheme could make his transition to the NFL difficult. A more natural fit in a zone-blocking scheme, Freeman could earn a bigger role than anticipated in training camp, especially if Coleman struggles. Rotoworld.com
