• Jim Caldwell impressed with Rudock at OTAs
    Lions QB Jake Rudock has bulked up to 215 pounds.

    Advice: Rudock’s increased size/strength has stood out at OTAs. He’s also showed improved velocity on his throws. "He’s gotten stronger, physically," coach Jim Caldwell said. "He’s thrown better. A little better knowledge, obviously with what he’s doing from an offensive standpoint." With Dan Orlovsky gone, Rudock will open 2017 as Matt Stafford’s backup. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago

  • Montgomery making strides as running back
    Ty Montgomery says he has a better understanding of the mental aspect of being a running back.

    Advice: "I was running a lot on instincts. I knew where I was supposed to be going, but it was instinct," Montgomery said. "Now, I know techniques. I know rotations and understanding gap rules and what the defense is supposed to be doing. Now when I get out there, I know my reads." Montgomery managed 5.9 YPC despite an in-season position switch last year. He enters OTAs atop the depth chart, but the Packers added competition after drafting three running backs. Montgomery should end up part of a 2017 committee. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:16 pm

  • Beat writer puts Torrey's O/U at 47/820/6
    ESPN Eagles reporter Tim McManus put Torrey Smith's over/under at 47 catches for 820 yards and six touchdowns.

    Advice: If Jordan Matthews remains with the team, we will take the under on all three. With Alshon Jeffery, Matthews, and Zach Ertz all likely to earn large target shares, there is not much left for Smith even without considering Darren Sproles' role in the passing game, and Carson Wentz is unlikely to attempt 600 passes again after coach Doug Pederson expressed concern about the run/pass split late last season. Smith adds an important element to the Eagles' passing attack, but he may not see enough usage to be a real fantasy factor. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

    The Philadelphia Daily News' Jeff McLane reports Carson Wentz looks stronger and is showing better mechanics during OTAs.

    Advice: McLane specifically said Wentz's "spirals are tighter" and none of his "20 or so throws" sailed, which was a problem last season. Normally this could be dismissed as offseason fluff, but Wentz did work with 3DQB gurus Adam Dedeaux and Tom House over the offseason. "It's really just cleaning up some things from an efficiency standpoint," Wentz said of the work. "No mass overhaul, nothing really major...a lot of it having to do with footwork." With better weapons and an intact offensive line, Wentz should take a step forward as a sophomore. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 am

    ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Josh McCown is the "heavy favorite" to start.

    Advice: McCown starting has been the expectation since he signed in March, but the Jets plan to give all three quarterbacks equal reps during OTAs and have continued to say there is an open competition. While Cimini does expect there to be a competition, he thinks McCown "will be the clear-cut front-runner" by the end of the offseason program. Even so, McCown has struggled to stay on the field in recent years, so it is likely we will see Christian Hackenberg at some point this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:16 am

    Coby Fleener expects to be "more effective" now that he's had a year to learn the Saints' offense.

    Advice: Fleener wasn't a complete flop last year -- he still managed 50 catches for 631 yards and three touchdowns as the non-PPR TE12 in fantasy -- but he certainly didn't live up to expectations after inking a five-year, $36 million contract. The 28-year-old faced a steep learning curve in his first year with the Saints. "I think anytime you’re trying to learn a new offense, trying to learn a language, trying to learn something of that nature, going through it under pressure, going through it for a year really helps," he said. Fleener belongs on the TE1/2 borderline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:06 pm

Agholor has been a bust since arriving as a first-round pick in 2015.

    Advice: Fournette wasn't asked to catch many passes at LSU (41 catches for 526 yards in three seasons) but he seemed comfortable as a receiver at the Combine and his Pro Day and has kept up the good work at OTAs. Beat reporter Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union only saw Fournette drop one pass during Friday's practice.

Carroo remains buried behind DeVante Parker, Jarvis Landry, and Kenny Stills. Jackson believes Jakeem Grant, UDFA Drew Morgan, and second-year UDFA Rashawn Scott could push Carroo.

    Advice: According to beat man Dan Duggan, Engram played traditional in-line tight end, in the slot, out wide, and even some H-back. While OC Mike Sullivan has said Engram will be taught to play as an in-line tight end, the Giants' best bet to maximize Engram's skill set is to use him to create mismatches against smaller cornerbacks and slower linebackers.

Last season, however, Allen made just eight appearances with nine carries and was a healthy scratch much of the second half of the year.

Perriman flashed as a sophomore after missing his entire rookie year with a knee injury, but was still exceedingly raw. He's supposedly improved his chemistry with Joe Flacco this offseason.

With that said, McKinnon has no Rotoworld blurbs since January 1, and his outlook has changed dramatically in the past few months.

  • Rob Gronkowski agrees to restructured deal
    Rob Gronkowski has agreed to a restructured contract.

    Advice: Underpaid at $5.25 million, Gronk has cut a deal full of incentive-laden raises. At the highest level, Gronk's salary will more than double to $10.75 million if he plays 90 percent of the Patriots' snaps, catches 80 passes, goes for 1,200 yards or makes the All-Pro team. It's a compromise that gives Gronk a shot at a much-larger payday, but only if he's able to stay on the field and produce. It's unique for Gronk because he does not have to give anything up in exchange for the incentives. It does not appear to alter the final two years of Gronk's contract, which are currently set to pay him $8 million and $9 million, respectively. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:47 pm
