  • Steelers to use more four-receiver packages?
    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests the Steelers could play more four-receiver offense this season.

    Advice: Assuming conditionally-reinstated Martavis Bryant is all systems go, the Steelers will have Bryant, Antonio Brown, Eli Rogers, and second-rounder JuJu Smith-Schuster available at wideout. Losing Ladarius Green removed a weapon from Pittsburgh's offense, and more four-wide packages could be one way to compensate. Last year's Steelers went four wide on just 1 percent of their plays. For comparison, the Jets led the NFL in four-wide sets at 33 percent. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm

  • Broncos plan to employ running back committee
    New coach Vance Joseph said the Broncos plan to use a running back committee this season.

    Advice: "You need two or three guys that can carry the load. It is no longer a one-guy position," Joseph said. "I’m excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De’Angelo (Henderson) in the mix. It’s going to be competitive, and that’s the way it should be." Anderson is the favorite for touches, but his usage will depend on Charles' health and whether Booker shows any year-two progress. Anderson currently makes sense as a sixth- to seventh-round pick in re-draft leagues, while the rest of Denver's backs are late-round fliers. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:03 pm

  • Vance McDonald may not make final roster?
    The San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch writes "it wouldn’t be a surprise" if 49ers TE Vance McDonald does not make the final roster.

    Advice: The 49ers openly attempted to trade McDonald during the draft, but cutting him for nothing is another story, one which would cost the 49ers cap space this year or leave dead money in 2018 depending on how the move is designated. It is still unclear why outgoing-GM Trent Baalke was allowed to give McDonald a five-year, $35-million extension last December, and it looks like the 49ers will have to eat some money to reverse that poor decision.

  • Cooper Kupp 'star' of rookie mini-camp
    The Los Angeles Daily News' Rich Hammond reports third-round WR Cooper Kupp "was the star of this month’s Rams rookie mini-camp."

    Advice: Kupp has made a habit of showing well on the practice field -- he buoyed his draft stock by dominating during Senior Bowl practices. While athletically limited, Kupp did break the all-division college record for career receiving yards (6,464), and the Rams do not have much talent at receiver. He has a path to early targets.

  • Josh Dobbs signs his four-year, rookie deal
    Steelers signed fourth-round QB Josh Dobbs to a four-year contract.

    Advice: Dobbs made 35 starts for Tennessee, finishing with a 23-12 record, 61.5% completion rate, 53:29 TD-to-INT ratio, and 7.1 yards-per-attempt average. Despite that success, Dobbs has issues with mechanics, accuracy, and decision making. He is something of a project, but he should get ample time to develop behind Ben Roethlisberger and possesses the tools to become a starter. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:26 am
