  • Jace Amaro struggling mightily at Jets camp
    Rookie TE Jace Amaro suggested going from Texas Tech's offense to the Jets is like going from Chinese to English.

    Advice: Amaro is reportedly struggling so badly that he's begun frustrating teammates, including Geno Smith. After another drop in Wednesday's practice, one teammate yelled "Can't catch a cold" at Amaro, who was later taken aside by GM John Idzik. Amaro should be left off the re-draft radar in fantasy leagues.

  • Blanchflower sidelined by high ankle sprain
    Seventh-round TE Rob Blanchflower suffered a high ankle sprain at Steelers camp.

    Advice: The UMass alum will miss "at least a week," according to coach Mike Tomlin, but could be sidelined even further than that. Blanchflower was slated to compete for a roster spot behind starter Heath Miller and blocker Matt Spaeth.

  • Gronk continues to look healthy at camp
    According to the Boston Globe, Rob Gronkowski "doesn't look like someone coming off a torn ACL/MCL."

    Advice: Gronk is reportedly "firing off the line, planting hard, cutting and catching passes from [Tom] Brady." It's still mostly in 1-on-1 work, but it seems like he's close to getting into more 7-on-7 and full-team drills. The Patriots open the season five weeks from Sunday.

  • Cameron to post bigger numbers in 2014?
    After digesting the first week of camp, ESPN Cleveland says Jordan Cameron "is going to have a bigger year than last season."

    Advice: If Josh Gordon's suspension stands, Cameron will be the only pass-catcher on the Browns that truly threatens a defense. It's not far-fetched at all to think he can make a leap on last year's 81-917-7 line, and it doesn't matter too much who wins the quarterback battle. In Brian Hoyer's two full games last year, Cameron averaged eight catches for 78.5 yards and scored four touchdowns.

  • Seahawks not interested in Jermichael Finley
    A source tells ProFootballTalk that the Seahawks will not revisit discussions with free agent Jermichael Finley.

    Advice: The topic came up because Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy tore his Achilles' tendon on Tuesday and the team had Finley in for a visit earlier this offseason. But it's unlikely they'd meet the ex-Packer's contract demands, especially with the Marshawn Lynch situation hanging over their heads. The Seahawks will be fine with Zach Miller and Luke Willson at tight end.

  • Seferian-Jenkins 'picking things up quickly'
    After visiting Bucs camp Wednesday, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah came away believing team brass is "pumped" about second-round TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is "picking things up quickly."

    Advice: Coach Lovie Smith stated at the start of camp that ASJ was "behind a lot" after missing spring work due to the University of Washington's late graduation. Things have apparently changed in a hurry for Seferian-Jenkins, who "made a lot of plays" during Wednesday's workouts. At 6'6/252 with a 37 1/2-inch vertical, ASJ is a rookie to monitor in touchdown-heavy fantasy leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski going 1-on-1 with Revis
    Rob Gronkowski (knee) has been doing 1-on-1 red-zone drills vs. Darrelle Revis over the last two days.

    Advice: Gronkowski, Tom Brady and Revis have been gathering at one end of the field to do battle while Bill Belichick watches "closely." During this time, the rest of the team is doing special teams work. It's an excellent test for Gronk, who continues to make progress off his knee reconstruction. It certainly looks like he'll be ready for Week 1.

  • Jace Amaro continues to struggle in camp
    Jets rookie TE Jace Amaro continues to struggle with mental mistakes and drops in camp.

    Advice: Amaro's main struggles are with X's and O's. He played in a very simple, no-huddle attack at Texas Tech, and has found the transition to the Jets' more sophisticated offense a difficult one. Amaro has time to turn it around, but he appears unlikely to be a fantasy contributor in year one.

  • Seahawks TE McCoy tears other Achilles'
    Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy has a torn left Achilles' tendon.

    Advice: He'll be placed on injured reserve. McCoy missed all of last season with a torn right Achilles'. His career is now in question. A catch-first tight end, McCoy's loss locks Luke Willson into that role for Seattle this year.

  • Zach Sudfeld getting first-team reps w/ Jets
    Second-year TE Zach Sudfeld has been getting some first-team reps in Jets camp.

    Advice: Sudfeld was overly hyped last summer. But he's a plus athlete at 6'7/253. "He's studying like nobody's business," said coach Rex Ryan. Sudfeld has a relatively clear path to playing time if he takes the next step in his development. Jeff Cumberland is a lumbering backup-caliber tight end, while rookie Jace Amaro's first-year camp reviews have been anything but positive. Sudfeld deserves attention in deep Dynasty leagues and could emerge on the re-draft map.

  • Packers TE Bostick works mostly with starters
    Brandon Bostick worked mostly with the Packers' starting offense on Wednesday.

    Advice: Third-round rookie TE Richard Rodgers drew all the hype during the spring, but that partly had to do with Bostick being sidelined as he recovered from foot surgery. Now healthy, Bostick is getting the bulk of the reps with the ones. By all accounts, he's looked impressive. Bostick capped off a two-minute drill with a fourth-down touchdown to close out practice Wednesday. The best athlete of the bunch at tight end in Green Bay, Bostick needs to be watched closely.

  • Clay Harbor (calf) out for about a month
    Jaguars TE Clay Harbor (calf) will be sidelined for the next month.

    Advice: Harbor's strained calf will cost him most or all of training camp. His roster spot is likely safe due to a complete lack of depth behind Marcedes Lewis.

  • Ebron dropping a lot of passes at Lions camp
    The Detroit Free Press reports first-round TE Eric Ebron has dropped "an inordinate number" of passes through spring and the first two days of camp.

    Advice: Before the draft, at least one NFL scout questioned Ebron's hands, especially when going over the middle. He had an 11.4 percent drop rate last season at UNC. Coach Jim Caldwell isn't worried, and blames Ebron learning so many positions and thinking too much for his shaky hands. It could be an up-and-down rookie year for Ebron. He's a late flier in re-draft, but we love him in Dynasty.

  • Gronkowski not expected to play in preseason
    The Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young believes it would be a "surprise" if Rob Gronkowski (knee) played in any preseason games.

    Advice: If Gronk does make it onto the field for exhibition action, it won't be for more than a few snaps just to get his feet wet. He's been participating in some 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 work at training camp, but most of Gronkowski's work is done off to the side. He's experienced no setbacks, and should be ready for the opener.

  • Seahawks TE McCoy injures Achilles' Tuesday
    Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy was carted off the field with a right Achilles' injury Tuesday.

    Advice: It's believed to be torn. McCoy tore his opposite Achilles' last May and missed the season. He's missed 30 games due to injury since being drafted in 2010. McCoy was the favorite for No. 3 tight end duties behind Zach Miller and Luke Willson.

  • Dolphins UDFA TE Hoskins impressing at camp
    According to the Palm Beach Post, undrafted rookie TE Gator Hoskins has "emerged" at camp and the team may be forced to keep him.

    Advice: Coach Joe Philbin said he'll likely keep three-to-five tight ends. Charles Clay sits atop the depth chart, while the remainder of the pecking order is unsettled. Others in the mix are Michael Egnew, Dion Sims, and rookie Arthur Lynch. Egnew's spot is likely in the most danger, as he hasn't done much of anything in his two seasons. Hoskins is a "move" tight end and is worth monitoring in deeper Dynasty leagues with Charles Clay in the final year of his contract.

  • Colt Lyerla at bottom of depth chart in GB
    Packers undrafted rookie TE Colt Lyerla was relegated to the scout team on the third day of training camp.

    Advice: Lyerla is at the bottom of the depth chart in a group that includes seven tight ends. The good news for Lyerla is that the tight end spot in Green Bay is the most wide-open position on the team. Lyerla has all the measurables and talent to make a quick climb once the pads come on and preseason games get under way. It's a reminder that Lyerla is a classic boom-or-bust prospect.

    Jaguars TE Clay Harbor will miss "more than a few days" with a strained calf.

  • Gavin Escobar splitting out wide in practice
    The Cowboys have been splitting second-year TE Gavin Escobar out wide in training camp practices.

    Advice: It's part of the Cowboys' ongoing efforts to get Escobar more involved after he played just 207 snaps as a rookie. The 6-foot-6 Escobar has also added five pounds, bulking up from to 249 to 254. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Dallas' passing attack, but Escobar is worth keeping an eye on as an upside TE2.

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins is 'behind a lot'
    Coach Lovie Smith said second-round TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is "behind a lot."

    Advice: Seferian-Jenkins's surgically-repaired foot is fine, but he's trying to learn the playbook and get into football shape at the same time. His curve has been slowed by the University of Washington's late graduation. Look for ASJ to be a role player in Week 1 before gradually passing Brandon Myers and Tim Wright.

  • Colts to run more two-wide packages
    The Colts are expected to dramatically increase their usage of two-tight end sets this season.

    Advice: Chuck Pagano and Pep Hamilton are showing no signs that they want to spread out the offense and saddle up Andrew Luck. Instead, they're going to get both Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener on the field in "12" looks and stubbornly stick with a ball-control philosophy. We'd rather take a shot on Allen than Fleener as he's a far better football player and is set to play the Rob Gronkowski role.

  • Vikes extend Rudolph for 5 yrs, $36.5 million
    Vikings signed TE Kyle Rudolph to a five-year, $36.5 million extension through 2019.

    Advice: Tight end guru Norv Turner is signing off on Rudolph, who should be Teddy Bridgewater's safety valve for years to come. Rudolph missed half of last season with a fractured foot, but is 100 percent now and dropped 15 pounds in the offseason with an eye on a high-volume role in an offense that has produced career years out of Jay Novacek, Randy McMichael, Jordan Cameron, and Antonio Gates. Still only 24 years old, Rudolph has 15 touchdowns over his last 30 games. He's a mid-range to lower-end TE1 in Dynasty leagues, albeit with upside for more. We see Rudolph as a value pick at his late-eighth-round ADP in re-draft leagues. He's a candidate to lead Minnesota in catches and TDs.

  • Zach Sudfeld impressing at Jets camp
    Second-year TE Zach Sudfeld has reportedly been the most impressive tight end so far at Jets camp.

    Advice: Jeff Cumberland has been "relatively quiet," while second-round pick Jace Amaro has generally struggled and missed time with knee tendinitis. Positive news on Sudfeld may generate eyerolls in the fantasy community, but he still offers plus athleticism and stands 6'7/253. He probably won't make any fantasy noise in New York this season, but is worth monitoring in deep Dynasty leagues.

    Dennis Pitta said his hip feels 100 percent as training camp opens.

    Advice: Pitta did return for the final four games of last season, but lacked some agility and explosiveness as he came off a hip dislocation. Now 100 percent and a focal point of Gary Kubiak's tight end-friendly offense, Pitta is a solid candidate to lead the Ravens in receptions. He's expected to play a "versatile role" in which he's "routinely" split out wide.

  • Julius Thomas got tutoring from T-Gonz
    Julius Thomas spent time working with Tony Gonzalez this offseason.

    Advice: Thomas and Gonzalez live near each other in the Los Angeles area. "I picked his brain on, what are sort of the things you're looking for?" Thomas said. "Not just technique, but what's going through your mind during plays? What do you focus on? How do you prepare for the day? His routine." By all accounts, Orange Julius has not rested on his breakout 2013 season that saw him finish as fantasy's No. 3 tight end. With Eric Decker gone and Thomas in a contract year, there's room for significant statistical growth.

  • Jets rook TE Amaro 'has not been impressive'
    NFL Network's Kimberly Jones observes Jets second-round TE Jace Amaro's opening week of practice at training camp "has not been impressive."

    Advice: The NFL has Amaro's head spinning after playing in Texas Tech's basic, no-huddle offense. Reports in the spring suggested Amaro "looked lost" at minicamp. There isn't a ton of re-draft appeal here, but the long-term outlook on Amaro obviously remains pretty optimistic as a 6-foot-5 seam-stretching threat. Jeff Cumberland is likely to handle the No. 1 tight end duties for the Jets in 2014.
