Player Notes

  • Greg Olsen third in line for targets?
    710 ESPN Seattle projects Greg Olsen for the third-most targets in the Seahawks' offense.

    Advice: The Seahawks paid Olsen starter money ($7 million) after his release from the Panthers. With Will Dissly (Achilles) working into game shape, there’s not much doubt over his role. Olsen should be ahead of whoever wins the No. 3 receiver job, but it's possible he'll cede snaps to a healthy Dissly, Jacob Hollister, and rookie Colby Parkinson (foot, active/NFI). Targets are up for grabs behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but a semi-retired Olsen looks destined for TD-dependent status. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:36 pm

  • Cowboys' Blake Bell could see snaps at H-back
    Cowboys TE Blake Bell may see snaps at H-back this season.

    Advice: With Jamize Olawale opted out, the Cowboys don't have a fullback on their roster. It shouldn’t be a hard transition for the inline blocker, though Bell’s still unlikely to see many touches. Bell has 38 catches in five seasons. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:21 pm

  • TEs coach: We can find ways to get Jonnu touches
    Speaking Thursday, Titans TEs coach Todd Downing praised Jonnu Smith's skill-set. 

    Advice: "He makes it fun," Downing gushed. "When you have a guy on your offense that can do so many things, you can be creative and find ways to get him touches." A perfect fit for the Titans' run-focused, YAC-friendly attack, Smith is a play-maker with the ball in his hands who chews up yards after the catch. Playing in a narrow offense when it comes to targets, the 24-year-old has a path to No. 2 status in the passing game. Currently being drafted in the TE15-18 range, Smith is a late-round flier who could easily become a TE1.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:46 pm

  • Bucs TEs have unfriendly 2020 schedule
    Greg Auman of The Athletic reports that more than half the Bucs' games will be against teams that were stingy against tight ends in 2019. 

    Advice: Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate will have a bunch of tough matchups this year. Tampa plays nine of the 12 teams that allowed five or fewer tight end touchdowns last season. It might not matter for Gronk if his connection with Tom Brady is anything like it was in New England. Opposing defenses accounting for Mike Evans and Chris Godwin might afford Gronkowski more single coverage than he ever saw at a Patriot.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:20 pm

  • Chiefs sign Travis Kelce through 2025 season
    Chiefs signed TE Travis Kelce to a four-year extension through 2025. 

    Advice: ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the deal is worth "more than $14 million" per season and includes "just under" $25 million in guarantees. Kelce still had two years remaining on his previous deal. He had been set to make $8 million in 2020. It's less money than George Kittle received earlier Thursday, but this is 31-year-old Kelce's third contract. Aging well and staying healthy, Kelce has cleared 1,000 yards each of the past four seasons, eclipsing 1,200 twice. He and Kittle remain in their own tier atop the tight end ranks.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm
