  • Garrett Celek facing 'big odds' to make team
    NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco believes Garrett Celek "faces some pretty big odds at this stage of his career to remain on the team."

    Advice: Celek is dealing with a multitude of injuries right now, but none bigger than his back injury that required offseason surgery. Since he's not expected to be cleared until "at least" training camp, Celek being cut wouldn't come as much of a surprise. Celek's 2019 status will have zero effect on George Kittle.

  • Nate Sudfield 'had a rough go in the spring'
    Nate Sudfield has "had a rough go in the spring" according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt.

    Advice: Sudfield is Carson Wentz's backup, but he's not a great one, especially in comparison to Nick Foles. Rosenblatt said he'll be concerned if Sudfield doesn't improve in training camp, but it's still unlikely the Eagles do anything notable about their quarterback depth at this point in the offseason.

  • 'Premature' to expect Sanders to be PHI's RB1
    NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt said it's "premature" to expect second-round RB Miles Sanders to become the Eagles No. 1 running back.

    Advice: Sanders has been sidelined since the start of OTAs, and Rosenblatt believes he's now "behind the eight-ball." Coach Doug Pederson said the plan is to "slowly work him into the mix and see just how he can help us on game day." The Eagles have a stable of veterans -- Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, etc. -- but none are good enough to keep Sanders off the field when he's caught up and healthy. The question is if that will be by Week 1 or much deeper into the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:50 am

  • Eagles WR JJAW should contribute 'right away'
    NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt believes second-round WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside "should be able to contribute right away."

    Advice: Arcega-Whiteside is now the unquestioned No. 4 receiver behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor. The depth chart is crowded, but the coaching staff is trying to find ways to get him on the field at practice. The Eagles have given JJAW reps in the slot this offseason, even though he almost exclusively played outside at Stanford where he dominated downfield and in the red zone. Arcega-Whiteside is a name to remember if one of the Eagles' starters goes down, and he could usurp Agholor by the end of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:38 am

  • Mike Williams bracing for an 'expanded role'
    Mike Williams expects to have an "expanded role" this season.

    Advice: Drafted seventh overall in 2017 following a standout career at Clemson, Williams labored through an injury-plagued rookie campaign before breaking out for a team-high 10 touchdowns in 2018. He only drew 66 targets, though that number figures to rise significantly following the departure of Tyrell Williams this offseason. "I feel I’m going to get a lot more opportunities than I did last year," said Williams of his role in the Chargers' post-Tyrell passing attack. "A lot more balls coming my way. I’m looking forward to it." We'd expect the third-year field stretcher to be drafted as a borderline WR2 in most fantasy leagues this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 am

  • Campbell 'in the mix' for No. 3 WR duties
    According to Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan, Colts second-round WR Parris Campbell "should be in the mix" for No. 3 receiver duties in Indianapolis this year.

    Advice: The Colts' receiving depth chart remains unsettled behind locked-in starters T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. Campbell enters training camp with a chance to carve out a role as Indy's third receiver, though with Hilton and Funchess in front of him along with tight ends Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle, the former Buckeye could struggle for consistent targets in a suddenly dense Colts receiving corps.

  • Tom Brady not sweating contract status
    Tom Brady said he isn't worried about his contract status.

    Advice: He's entering the final year of his current contract, though Brady, who has routinely taken less money to help the Patriots fill other needs, is confident New England will take care of him when the time is right. "I think those things work themselves out," said the three-time MVP earlier this month at mandatory minicamp. Going on 42, Brady is coming off another productive season, though he'll have his work cut out for him without Rob Gronkowski in 2019. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 am

  • N'Keal Harry 'didn't have the best minicamp'
    According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Patriots first-round WR N'Keal Harry "didn't have the best minicamp."

    Advice: Per Volin, Harry struggled to get open against Stephon Gilmore and also made "a handful of mental mistakes" including lining up in the wrong spot. Struggling against a first-team All-Pro in Gilmore is understandable, though it's worth noting that Harry's separation skills, or lack thereof, were the biggest knock on him coming out of Arizona State. The good news is that Harry received a ton of reps this offseason and still has plenty of time to learn the intricacies of Josh McDaniels' offense before the regular season gets under way. He's a good bet to start opposite Julian Edelman in Week 1. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:32 am

  • Landry (undisclosed) plays in softball game
    Jarvis Landry (undisclosed) participated in his charity softball game Saturday.

    Advice: "I don’t know if I’ll hit but I’ll definitely be in the field," he said. Landry skipped all of Cleveland's offseason workouts (including mandatory minicamp) with an undisclosed injury, but appears healthy enough to play defense at his charity softball game. We fully expect Landry to be a full participant from Day One at Brown training camp in July. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:23 pm

  • Panthers TE Ian Thomas could return for camp
    Panthers TE Ian Thomas (leg) could be ready for training camp.

    Advice: Thomas has been sidelined for most of the offseason. His Week 1 status isn't in doubt, but he's looking legitimately questionable for camp. Thomas held his own in seven rookie-year starts and is locked in as Greg Olsen's handcuff. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:23 am

  • John Ross struggling with consistency
    The Athletic's Jay Morrison reports John Ross has struggled with consistency during spring practices.

    Advice: This comes after teammate Tyler Boyd suggested Ross was still having trouble picking up the offense. Ross isn't off to a great start, though that's not surprising given his history of lapses. Playing under a new coaching staff, Ross is entering a make-or-break 2019. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:41 am

  • Christian Kirk has 'good feel' for offense
    Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Christian Kirk has a "good feel" for the offense.

    Advice: Kirk has been the Cardinals best receiver during the offseason program. He's fully over his foot issues and has the makings for a second-year breakout in an offense that should be among the most pass heavy in the league. Kirk offers good value at his seventh-round ADP.

  • Trent Taylor 'learning a lot' from Wes Welker
    The San Francisco Chronicle reports third-year WR Trent Taylor has improved under WR coach Wes Welker.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise — Taylor and Welker were very similar players. Taylor never got fully over his 2017 back surgery last season, leading to a step back from his rookie year. He's been one of the standouts of OTAs now that he's healthy. Taylor is hard to get excited about, but he has the early edge over Richie James for the 49ers' slot role.

  • Richie James behind Taylor for slot role
    NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports Richie James has fallen behind Trent Taylor for the starting slot role.

    Advice: James showed flashes last year but finished with just 14 targets. The 49ers added rookies Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd this offseason, so even if Taylor fades, it's not going to be easy for James to hold off competition. James' special teams value should secure his roster spot. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:11 am

  • Kapri Bibbs released by Packers
    Packers released RB Kapri Bibbs.

    Advice: Bibbs wasn't needed after the Packers added sixth-round RB Dexter Williams. Getting release at this stage is never a good sign, but Bibbs has enough special teams value to resurface. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:36 pm

  • J.D. McKissic in line for 3rd-down work?
    Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times listed J.D. McKissic as one of three candidates competing to be the Seahawks' third-down running back.

    Advice: He'll be competing with C.J. Prosise and sixth-round rookie Travis Homer. McKissic likely has a leg up on the others, particularly given Prosise's injury history, though Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny are both competent enough receivers to play on passing downs. Even as a late-round dart throw in fantasy leagues, McKissic doesn't offer much upside. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:03 pm

  • Rico Gathers hit with one-game suspension
    NFL suspended TE Rico Gathers one game for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

    Advice: Gathers was arrested for marijuana possession last September. This could actually help his roster chances, as the Cowboys won't have to make a decision on him until Week 2. Even if Gathers keeps his spot, he's likely going to be returning behind Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin, and Dalton Schultz. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:56 pm

  • Roberts waived after Pats trade falls through
    Lions waived TE Michael Roberts.

    Advice: It was reported Thursday that New England had acquired Roberts from Detroit for a seventh-round pick in 2020, but the deal fell through after he failed his physical. Regardless, his tenure with the Lions is over. The 2017 fourth-rounder snared nine-of-20 targets for 100 yards and three touchdowns over 159 offensive snaps last season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:08 pm

  • Morgan (knee) on track for training camp
    David Morgan is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery.

    Advice: The 2016 sixth-rounder logged 231 snaps as a blocking tight end last season. Morgan should be ready for the start of training camp next month, though even at full strength he's no better than third on the team's tight end depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and rookie second-rounder Irv Smith.

  • Bills sign third-round rookie TE Dawson Knox
    Bills signed third-round TE Dawson Knox to a four-year contract.

    Advice: The entire Bills rookie class is now under contract. After posting minimal production in an explosive Ole Miss offense, Knox (6'4/254) improved his draft stock by showing 4.58-speed and a 34.5-inch vertical at the Combine. Since being the No. 96 overall pick, Knox has worked with the first-team offense since Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom left camp with injuries. Bills GM Brandon Beane said, "He’s got upside."
