    Dolphins' Dion Jordan: Not a lock to make the Dolphins even when reinstated
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Dion Jordan is not a lock to make the Miami Dolphins squad out of training camp even if he is reinstated from his suspension, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jordan is due a roster bonus of almost $1.7 million if he is still with Miami on the fifth day of training camp. That price may be to much to pay for a Miami club who really don't know how Jordan will play coming off a suspension. He may have to show an awful lot in quick order to assure the Miami brass that he is worth that roster bonus.

    Broncos' Kenny Anunike: Will begin camp on PUP list
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kenny Anunike (knee) is slated to begin training camp on the Denver Broncos ' active/PUP list, the Denver Post reports.

    Anunike was active for just three games in 2015 before landing on IR with a nagging knee injury he originally had surgery for in August of 2015. Last month he said he expected to be ready for training camp, so his placement on the PUP list either means he suffered a setback in his recovery, or Denver is simply exercising caution with their up-and-coming defensive end. When cleared to play, Anunike will compete with Darius Kilgo, Jared Crick, Phil Walker and Vance Walker for depth positions along the defensive line.

    Jairus Byrd was not placed on the New Orleans Saints ' active/PUP list for the first time in his three-year career in New Orleans, ESPN.com reports.

    Though healthy for the start of camp, Byrd did miss the entirety of the Saints' offseason program rehabbing the knee injury that has plagued him since inking a six-year, $54 million deal ahead of the 2014 season. Hopefully, for the Saints, Byrd's 2016 training camp presence will smoothly translate to an improved performance in the upcoming campaign for a New Orleans secondary that allowed the 31st-most passing yards in the NFL during 2015.

    Kikaha had torn his left ACL during the Saints' offseason program in June, so his placement on the PUP list is an optimistic move by GM Mickey Loomis that will give the second-rounder an outside chance of returning later on in the season.

    Vincent Brown (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the New Orleans Saints ' active/PUP list, ESPN.com reports.

    The Saints took a flier on Brown in an effort to deepen their wide out corps in May, presumably to add a veteran presence in the aftermath of Marques Colston's release. Being how Brandin Cooks, Brandon Coleman, Willie Snead and Michael Thomas combine for three years of NFL experience, Brown, a five-year NFL veteran, has more experience than the top-four wide receivers currently atop the Saints' depth chart. Should Brown make the final 53-man roster out of camp, he will remain unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance in 2016.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Welcomed back by Browns

    Head of football operations Sashi Brown relayed Monday that the Cleveland Browns plan to give Josh Gordon a chance to redeem himself with the franchise, now that the NFL has reinstated the wideout on a conditional basis, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    In a statement posted on the team's official site, Brown noted, "with the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp. At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field." While the talented 25-year-old wideout has plenty to prove after being away from game action for so long, if he is able to meet the off-field expectations of the Browns, it looks like he'll have an opportunity, as soon as Week 5 of the 2016 season, to contribute to the team's offense in some capacity. How much of an impact he'd be ready to make -- and how quick that might happen after his four-game suspension ends -- remains to be seen, but Gordon's fantasy upside is obviously intriguing, in the event that things continue to move forward for him in a positive direction.

    True to his word, Flacco is available for the start of training camp, despite suffering ACL and MCL tears only eight months ago.

    Blaine Gabbert is the early leader for the starting quarterback job heading into training camp, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Gabbert's late-season success last year and his healthy presence during OTAs are the likely reason he gets the early lead in the position battle. He provides a more stable option in comparison to Colin Kaepernick, but the latter could surpass him on the depth chart if he has a strong training camp and preseason.

    Saints' Drew Brees: No contract extension expected before training camp

    Unless something changes in the next few days, Drew Brees (foot) will not have a new contract in place before the New Orleans Saints kick off training camp, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Brees, however, has insisted that he will not hold out or skip any practice time, and he fully participated in OTAs and minicamp. Saints veterans report to training camp in West Virginia on Wednesday.

    Brees is entering the last year of his contract, but the Saints appear content to let him play out the year with a whopping salary-cap figure of $30 million. He's stated that the unofficial deadline to complete an extension is the start of the regular season. Given that Brees continues to be productive -- he led the NFL in passing for the fourth time in five seasons last year with 4,870 yards in just 15 games played -- it would not be surprising to see the Saints and their franchise quarterback strike a deal prior to Sept. 1.

    Broncos' Paxton Lynch: In line for rookie playing time
    21h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    The Denver Broncos would like to see Paxton Lynch take the reins at some point this season, 9NEWS reports.

    Lynch became Denver's future the moment they traded up in the first round to nab him. Ever since, however, the conversation around 2016's starter has been around Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Lynch is easily the most physically gifted of the three, but he's supposedly still refining his game and adjusting to a pro offense. Whether Lynch ends up finding the playing field will likely depend on whether Denver's defense and running game is carrying it to another playoff berth. Head coach Gary Kubiak opted for experience over physical skill last playoffs, albeit in the form of a future Hall of Famer in Peyton Manning, not a journeyman like Sanchez. This scenario has played out in Mile High before under offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. Denver was 7-4 with Jake Plummer under center in 2006, only to test out Jay Cutler and fall to 9-7, out of the playoff race.

    Joe Flacco (knee) plans to participate in practice when the Baltimore Ravens begin training camp on July 28, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

    Flacco has stated numerous times that he intends on being in action when training camp starts, reassuring fantasy owners of his progress since suffering a torn ACL last November. The quarterback is already able to sprint and make cuts, so taking the field with his teammates later this month would represent the next step in his return. At this point, it seems likely that Flacco will be ready to roll once Week 1 kicks off, but it should still be worthwhile to monitor his involvement and performance level throughout the preseason.

    Chiefs' Kevin Hogan: In mix for for backup QB role
    9d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kevin Hogan , the Kansas City Chiefs ' 2016 fifth-round selection, is in the mix for the backup QB role as soon as this upcoming season, NFL.com reports.

    Chase Daniel (Eagles) bolted for a pay increase this offseason, subsequently leaving the Chiefs with a void at backup quarterback. Alex Smith, who tossed for a career-high 3,486 yards in 2015, is undoubtedly locked in as the starter, but his mobile tendencies do leave him more vulnerable than the average starting quarterback, which thus places more importance on the backup quarterback in Kansas City relative to the rest of the league. Evidently, Hogan, a fifth-round selection in this year's draft, is in competition for said job as soon as this year and will battle for the title with Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray come training camp.

    Blount didn't participate in any of the Patriots' spring practices, but unless the team elects to add the running back to the list in the coming days, it looks like he'll be able to take the field in training camp. Assuming he is able to re-prove his health in the coming weeks, Blount would appear to have the inside track at reclaiming his role as the Patriots' top "big back."

    Helu did not practice in any of the Raiders' offseason workouts while recovering from offseason hip procedures, and he'll continue to sit out of practice as training camp begins. It's unclear how long he'll remain out, but the more time he misses, the more likely it is that he gets cut, as Oakland has several other running backs also on the roster, including Latavius Murray, DeAndre Washington, George Atkinson and Taiwan Jones.

    Dion Lewis (knee) is set to open training camp on the New England Patriots ' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Lewis' inclusion on the list comes as little surprise, given that he is bouncing back from surgery this past November to repair a torn ACL. To date, his progress appears to be going well, but the running back will be one to watch in the coming weeks, nonetheless. Players on the active/PUP list are eligible to come off the list (and resume practice) at any time during training camp, though as long as Lewis is out or slowed at all, the likes of UDFA D.J. Foster and veteran Donald Brown figure to have added opportunities to make cases to secure spots in the Patriots' 2016 backfield.

    Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he will win the appeal of the potential four-game suspension he faces for missing drug tests and thus won't miss any games as a result of the situation, ESPN.com reports.

    Bell's rejection of potential suspension talk came in the form of a comment from his verified Instagram account on a picture posted by someone else. At the moment, Bell is reportedly appealing the suspension, which is why it hasn't been announced. According to the league's collective bargaining agreement, a player can miss up to two drug tests without forfeiting games, but a four-game suspension is triggered upon a third missed test. Earlier this offseason, Bell denied missing or failing any tests, but despite what he says, his situation is still obviously one of huge importance for fantasy owners to monitor going forward.

    Duke Johnson will sometimes be split out as a wide receiver this season, Cleveland.com reports.

    Johnson's 61 receptions as a rookie running back last season made him a PPR darling, and new head coach Hue Jackson intends to get him the ball in more ways this year. That includes splitting him out at wide receiver in some packages, adding another layer to his fantasy value. As it stands, he'll compete with Isaiah Crowell for the Cleveland Browns ' starting running back gig, but on a Cleveland offense in need of playmakers, Johnson's versatility should allow for ample touches no matter his ultimate pegging on the depth chart.

    Woodhead sprained his ankle at the end of San Diego's minicamp this spring, but the time off has fortunately allowed him to make a full recovery. With teammate Melvin Gordon (knee) coming off microfracture surgery, Woodhead should be plenty involved out of the backfield early on and is coming off a season in which he led the San Diego Chargers in catches (80), receiving yards (755) and receiving touchdowns (six). With numbers like those, the veteran continues to stand out in PPR leagues, making his return to health encouraging for the Chargers and fantasy owners alike.

While it remains to be seen how much Green will able able to do on the field next week when training camp opens, there's nothing to suggest that his Week 1 status is in any danger.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
