  • Beat: Albert O possible Tim Patrick replacement
    Broncos head Coach Nathaniel Hackett says they're putting Albert Okwuegbunam "all over the place" in the offense.

    Advice: With the recent news of Tim Patrick's season ending on a torn ACL, the Broncos are looking to replace that production. Coach Hackett says they've been using Albert O "from motioning, playing wide, playing ‘F’ and doing all kinds of different things.” “That’s definitely been something we’ve wanted to work on,” Hackett added. Many have Okwuegbunam as a sleeper tight end option, and these comments by Hackett suggest Okwuegbunam is separating himself from rookie Greg Dulcich. He looks like a value in the 13th round of Yahoo drafts. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:00 pm

  • Darius Anderson suffers season-ending knee injury
    Texans RB Darius Anderson suffered a season-ending knee injury on Tuesday. 

    Advice: Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson reports Anderson suffered "a dislocation and other damage that required immediate surgery." That description sounds about as bad as a knee injury can be. An undrafted free agent in 2020, Anderson has bounced around practice squads but has never made an NFL appearance.

  • Kingsbury 'really impressed with Eno Benjamin
    Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said he is "really impressed" with Eno Benjamin.

    Advice: "Each year he has just gotten progressively better," Kingsbury said. "He's one of the hardest workers on the team now. Always upbeat, always into it. Just really come a long way." Despite the signing of Darrel Williams and drafting Keaontay Ingram, Benjamin's work ethic and knowledge of the offense give him a realistic chance of being James Conner's sidekick in the backfield. Chase Edmonds left behind 159 touches in 2021. Should Benjamin earn the RB2 role on the Cardinals' offense, it will immediately raise his fantasy value. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:26 pm

  • Texans trade for Adam Shaheen, now set at TE
    Texans acquired TE Adam Shaheen and a 2023 seventh-round pick in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round pick.

    Advice: With no clear-cut star at the position, the Texans bolster their tight end room with Shaheen. He will look to come in and get playing time behind Brevin Jordan and Pharoah Brown. The Dolphins, on the other hand, cut loose some dead weight as they already have Mike Gesicki with Durham Smythe to back him up. After combining for 24 catches, 260 yards and three touchdowns the past two seasons with the Dolphins, Shaheen will look to make the team's roster to provide help in the run-blocking game.

  • Mack, Burkhead co-No. 1s on unofficial depth chart
    Rex Burkhead and Marlon Mack are listed as the co-No. 1 backs on Houston's first unofficial depth chart.

    Advice: Welcome to "or" season. Mack is the first back listed if you'd like to read into that. Rookie Dameon Pierce starts as the third-stringer. It seems likely the Texans will use more Pierce than anyone in the preseason, but Mack could get some carries as he was mostly mothballed by the Colts last season. Ultimately Mack and Burkhead will likely be a starting committee until Pierce overcomes them, whenever that is.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 1:59 pm
