  • Cameron Brate TB TE
    Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Slated for plenty of action in two TE sets this season
    5m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Cameron Brate and fellow tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins figure to see plenty of playing time together in two-tight end sets this coming season, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Brate already exceeded expectations last season during Seferian-Jenkins' extended absence due to a shoulder injury, helping to set him up for success in this year's training camp. He's made good on that opportunity this summer, wresting the top tight end role from Seferian-Jenkins earlier in camp, and partially retaining that spot heading into the third preseason game. However, the first-team reps have been split up much more equitably over the last week-plus by head coach Dirk Koetter, a sign of both Seferian-Jenkins' improving play and what the offense is likely to resemble once the regular season kicks off. For their part, both players appear to be embracing the idea of essentially sharing the top job, given the varying skill sets they respectively bring to the field. "Austin's a really good player, too," said Brate. "I think with both of us on the field definitely it will be good for us. I think we're both going to play a lot for us this year. I've been getting a lot of those reps early in training camp and it's good to even it out, both get some work. He looked really good on Saturday, had a good week of practice last week. It's going to be fun working with him."

  • Vernon Hargreaves TB CB
    Buccaneers' Vernon Hargreaves: Continues stellar work with multiple picks Tuesday
    19m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Vernon Hargreaves , who recorded multiple interceptions in Tuesday's joint practice with the Browns, saw time at outside corner in addition to the usual slot role he's been filling, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The talented corner continued what has been a highly impressive summer by shining in some extended opportunity with the first-team defense. Hargreaves recorded a pick while working opposite Brent Grimes and then added another pair of interceptions against Robert Griffin III in seven-on-seven drills. The former Gator notably received time at both his customary nickel spot in the first-team defense and at outside corner in place of Alterraun Verner, with the latter quite possibly serving as a foreshadowing of what the Week 1 starting lineup could look like if Hargreaves' play continues trending upward.

    Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Struggles continue in Tuesday joint practice
    37m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Roberto Aguayo , who admitted Monday that he might be overthinking when kicking, had another three misses in Tuesday's joint practice with the Browns, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The rookie kicker had admitted Monday that he was perhaps focusing "too much on detail and techniques" on the misses he'd had until that point, and that he just needed to "kick the ball." That approach would have come in handy Tuesday, when Aguayo misfired on three kicks in the joint practice session, including one particular miss that drew groans from the crowd. Head coach Dirk Koetter made no bones about his kicker's struggles when speaking to the media, but deferred any questions to general manager Jason Licht about whether another kicker might be brought in as competition for the 2016 second-round pick if the struggles continue. "He's struggling," coach Dirk Koetter conceded after Tuesday's practice. "He's struggling a little bit right now. He has to work his way through it. We've talked to him. He knows what he has to do. He's working through it."

    During 7-on-7 periods, Leon Hall received extensive work at free safety alongside strong safety Landon Collins in the base and nickel defenses, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    With Darian Thompson sidelined for at least a week, the New York Giants need to find a free safety, and the veteran cornerback could be the solution. If Hall were to wind up starting, he'd have some IDP upside.

    Cruz beat some reserve cornerbacks off the line and took short passes for long gains during the drills. If his body responds well, he'll have a chance to play in the team's third preseason game against the Jets Saturday. Cruz has some upside as a second or third receiver, but if he has any setbacks he could also be cut.

    This will be more relevant if Victor Cruz is cut. Reports on Cruz's last practice were good, but if Cruz's constant injuries prove too much from which to return, someone will have to land the team's No. 3 WR job, and right now King has the upper hand. Keep in mind King is 26 and with only average size and decent speed.

    Tyler Bray (neck) returned to practice Tuesday and was working as the third-string quarterback, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

    Bray had a small chip fracture in his cervical spine, but it wasn't deemed a serious threat to his playing ability, thus allowing him to return to the practice field Tuesday. He was immediately inserted as the team's third-string quarterback, ahead of both Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan. However, both Alex Smith and Nick Foles rank ahead of him on the depth chart currently, so if the Kansas City Chiefs ultimately roster just two quarterbacks for the upcoming season, Bray could find himself as a practice squad candidate.

    Trevor Siemian (sore shoulder) did not throw at practice Tuesday, NFL.com reports.

    Per the report, Siemian led the Denver Broncos ' first-team during the running portion of Tuesday's practice, but coach Gary Kubiak noted that the QB is "day-to-day" in terms of throwing. That said, Siemian remains in line to start Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, which indicates that he currently holds the lead in the team's QB competition as Week 1 of the regular season quickly approaches.

    Bridgewater was unable to throw during Saturday and Sunday sessions as he reportedly dealt with minor soreness in his shoulder, but returned to full participation Tuesday, resulting in a sigh of relief for the Minnesota Vikings . It's unclear at this point if the team will play it safe and hold him out of Sunday's exhibition against the Chargers, but the nature of the issue doesn't appear to be something that would keep the starting quarterback sidelined.

    ESPN's Jeff Legwold suggests that Trevor Siemian -- who is slated to start Saturday's preseason game against the Rams -- has a leg up at this time on both Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch for the starting QB job in Denver.

    It's unclear whether Sanchez or Lynch will enter Saturday's game after Siemian, though coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that they all are "going to play an equal amount." In any case, where Sanchez was once the favorite to hold things down at QB for Denver until Lynch (drafted 26th overall in April) was ready to take over, it now looks as though Siemian will need to falter this weekend in order to not claim the team's top job at the position.

    Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Closing in on No. 1 job?
    17h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    ESPN's Jeff Legwold suggests that Trevor Siemian (shoulder) "is likely one more quality half of football" from being named the Denver Broncos ' Week 1 starter at QB.

    Siemian will start Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Denver's third preseason tilt, which is often considered a dress rehearsal for regular-season action. While Siemian may indeed have the inside track on the team's top job at this point, he'll need to avoid any major missteps Saturday to secure the role. On that front, veteran Mark Sanchez and rookie Paxton Lynch will also see action this weekend, after which the team's signal-caller pecking order should become established.

    Lions' Ameer Abdullah: Itching to play
    12h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) has expressed his desire to play in Detroit's third preseason game, Saturday against the Ravens, ESPN reports. "I mean, I just want to play," Abdullah said. "Just want to play at a full-speed game tempo. That's all it really is. I've been practicing. To play in a game setting, to get back used to playing in a game since I haven't played in a preseason game yet, that'd be cool."

    Abdullah was incapable of playing in the Detroit Lions ' first two preseason games, but has since shed the red no-contact jersey he donned for the majority of training camp in order to protect his surgically repaired shoulder. However, regardless as to whether he's granted his wish and actually does suit up Saturday, Abdullah remains firmly set to start Week 1 against the Colts. In question, though, is his role on special teams. The former Cornhusker led the NFL in kickoff-return yardage in 2015, but may be solely restrained to running back duties in 2016 as a means to prevent the second-year pro from popping up on the injury report over the course of the upcoming campaign.

It's unclear whether he will see time in the Seattle Seahawks ' preseason finale Sep. 1 in Oakland, though. But, as it stands, Rawls and Christine Michael seem set to spearhead Seattle's rushing attack entering the 2016 campaign.

  • Carlos Hyde SF RB
    49ers' Carlos Hyde: Should benefit from improved offensive line
    12h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Carlos Hyde should benefit from having an improved offensive line this season.

    Hyde showed flashes of brilliance last season, but a shoddy offensive line and a foot injury put a cap on his production. With the return of 2014 starters Daniel Kilgore and Anthony Davis to compliment the steady Joe Staley, the third-year back has the strongest line in front him since being drafted in 2014. The San Francisco 49ers also used their first-round pick on the draft's highest-ranked guard, Joshua Garnett, who could enhance the line even further if he earns a starting job prior to Week 1. Hyde will still have to deal with defenses stacking the box against a 49ers team that doesn't offer much of an aerial attack, but the improved bulk up front should help combat that issue.

    Charcandrick West (elbow) practiced Tuesday, BJ Kissel of Kansas City Chiefs .com reports.

    West's elbow has been giving him some problems as of late, but his return to practice indicates that he is either close to full strength or willing to play through the pain. West has shown some flashes of his potential in his short tenure with Kansas City, and with the injury-prone Jamaal Charles standing as the only rusher ahead of him on the team's official depth chart, West is certainly someone to keep an eye on moving forward.

When asked Tuesday if Charles or LB Tamba Hali were candidates to take the field Saturday against the Bears or next week against the Packers, coach Andy Reid said, "only if I feel if they're right, but I'm not going to stick them out there if there's a question on it."

    Panthers' Devin Funchess: Casting heat upon No. 1 WR Benjamin
    10h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl hinted Devin Funchess may be pushing Kelvin Benjamin for Carolina's No. 1 WR role, the team's official site reports. "To be honest with you, where Devin is right now and where Kelvin needs to get to, I think Devin is pushing Kelvin," Proehl said. "He's realizing, 'I've got to get back, I've got to push, because this guy (Funchess) is pretty dang good.'"

    Benjamin entered the league in 2014 as a first-round draft pick and proceeded to finish the year as fantasy's 15th-highest scoring wide receiver. Funchess, on the other hand, was taken with a second-round selection in 2015 to presumably follow in the mold of Benjamin as the two profile similarly in size. Funchess was unable to replicate anywhere near the same level of success during his own rookie year (he finished as the 57th-ranked WR in 2015), though, even with Benjamin (knee) lost for the season. Looking ahead to 2016, both players figure to maintain fantasy appeal as key contributors in the Carolina Panthers ' passing game, but TE Greg Olsen may have emerged as QB Cam Newton's favorite target in 2015, Ted Ginn is currently enjoying a late-career resurgence, and the Panthers attempted the seventh-fewest passes in the NFL last year. Point being, Newton has a trio of healthy and big-bodied receivers to go along with a proven deep threat at his disposal, and there may simply not be enough targets to go around for either Benjamin nor Funchess to approach the numbers Benjamin did during his rookie campaign, regardless of who ends up atop the depth chart.

    Holton's stock among the long list of receivers on the Oakland Raiders depth chart has risen throughout camp, and he figures to be the leading candidate for the No. 5 spot behind Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, Seth Roberts, and Andre Holmes. Given his performance during the preseason, he's likely earned his place after coming into training camp with the chance of eventually being cut.

However, the decision to place him on this specific list may ultimately be contingent on the status of fellow TE Eric Ebron (ankle).

Both misses were from 40-plus yards, but he redeemed himself by striking true from 52 yards in the waning minutes of Friday's contest.

    01/12/2016 • By RotoWire Staff

    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.
