  • IND Wide Receiver #16
    Colts WR Ashton Dulin was seen running and cutting in a workout video posted to his Instagram account.
    Dulin did not participate in OTAs or minicamp, as the sixth-year receiver continues to recover from a torn ACL in training camp last year. In the posted workout video, Dulin appears to be doing plenty of running and cutting, but whether or not he’ll be ready for the start of training camp is to be determined. Dulin has caught 33 passes for 450 yards and three touchdowns in 55 career games and will likely be competing for a spot on the 53-man roster in training camp.
  • HOU Linebacker #48
    KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson reports Texans LB Christian Harris (knee) is dealing with a soft-tissue injury that is “not considered long-term.”
    Harris isn’t practicing with the team in the early stages of training camp. The third-year linebacker, who totaled 101 tackles and two sacks, is instead observing from the sideline as he works his way back to the field. According to Wilson, Harris “is expected back relatively soon,” so we won’t read too much into this for now. Harris turned in a career year last season and is expected to help anchor a Texans defense that ranked 11th in points allowed per game (20.8) in 2023.
  • CIN Tackle #71
    Bengals signed No. 18 overall pick RT Amarius Mims to a four-year, $15.37 million contract
    Mims becomes the final rookie of the 2024 class to sign his deal. It’s a fully guaranteed one for Mims, who will also receive a $7.99 million signing bonus on the deal. The Bengals selected Mims in hopes of shoring up an offensive line that has proven detrimental, at times, to Joe Burrow. With Orlando Brown anchoring the left side, Mims will slot in at right tackle, where he spent the majority of his three-year career while at Georgia. Mims earned a PFF blocking grade of 75.6 last season, allowing no sacks on just one pressure in seven games. He should be an immediate upgrade over Jonah Williams, who is now with the Cardinals.
  • KC Wide Receiver #19
    Kadarius Toney was taking snaps at running back during various portions of practice for the Chiefs.
    This is an interesting one to monitor. Listed at six feet tall and 193 pounds, Toney has the size to take on some of the brunt that the running back position demands. The Chiefs also have a relatively underwhelming cast of characters behind Isiah Pacheo in Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Deneric Prince, and Keaontay Ingram. Head coach Andy Reid said Toney “did a good job when he was in there” regarding Toney’s snaps in the backfield, which is encouraging but far from a ringing endorsement. Toney enters camp on the roster bubble after underperforming for much of his time with the Chiefs. The former. No. 20 overall pick has struggled to stay healthy and has just 41 catches for 340 yards and three touchdowns in 20 games with the Chiefs. Any kind of versatility Toney can show could go a long way in securing him a spot on the 53-man roster. His fantasy value is at an all-time low, but it could see an uptick if these running back snaps become more of a norm.
  • HOU Running Back #28
    Texans offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik said Joe Mixon is “an absolute workhorse, in every regard.”
    It’s the latest sign that Mixon, 27, who signed a three-year contract extension with Houston this offseason, will be the team’s unquestioned primary back in 2024. Though Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans recently said Mixon and Dameon Pierce will be a “one-two punch,” all indications point to Mixon as the lead back who will see high-leverage touches in the ascendant Houston offense. Mixon totaled more than 1,200 yards in each of his final three years with the Bengals. Pierce in 2023 was among the worst running backs in the NFL, averaging 2.8 yards per carry. He’ll be a backfield insurance option in Mixon misses time this season. The team recently added journeyman Cam Akers to the backfield.
  • HOU Running Back #31
    Texans signed RB Cam Akers, formerly of the Vikings.
    Returning from his second torn Achilles in three years, Akers will now look to make the Texans’ 53-man roster this summer. The former second-round pick struggled last season while splitting time between the Rams and Vikings, running for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 60 carries (2.8 YPC) before seeing his season come to an end in Week 9 against the Falcons. Even if he makes the Texans’ roster, Akers will presumably be buried behind Joe Mixon and Dameon Pierce on the depth chart. As of now, this signing doesn’t move the fantasy needle for any of the three backs.
  • Vikings signed No. 17 overall pick EDGE Dallas Turner to a four-year, $15.76 million contract.
    The initial report comes from ESPN’s Kevin Seifert. ESPN’s Adam Schefter later broke the deal’s financial details, including its fully-guaranteed status. Turner should anchor the Vikings’ pass-rush for years to come after finishing top five in pass-rush win rate (19.6 percent), quarterback pressure rate (19.6 percent) and pass-rush productivity (11.6), ranked among Power Five EDGE rushers with at least 260 qualifying snaps.
  • GB Defensive Lineman #97
    Packers signed DL Kenny Clark to a three-year, $64 million contract extension.
    It’s not the extension Packers fans were hoping for prior to camp, but it’s a key one nonetheless. Clark is fresh off a season in which he totaled a career-high 7.5 sacks and nine TFLs on his way to his third Pro Bowl. The veteran tackle has spent his entire eight-year career with the Packers and earned a PFF grade of 68.8, which ranked 33rd amongst all defensive linemen (min. 300 snaps). If the best ability is availability, then Clark is elite. He’s missed just eight regular season games in his career and just one game in the last three seasons. He will earn $29 million this season and is now under contract through 2027.
  • DEN Linebacker #41
    Broncos placed LB Drew Sanders (Achilles) on the active/PUP list.
    The report comes from NBC Houston’s Aaron Wilson, who notes the Broncos also moved S Caden Stearns (patellar tendon) and S Delarrin Turner-Yell (ACL) to the active/PUP list. Sanders ruptured his Achilles tendon in late April. Initial reports suggested the team was hopeful he could return before the 2024 season ends. His move to the active/PUP list, rather than the reserve/PUP list, is a positive step in this regard. Should he remain on the active/PUP list entering the regular season, he will be eligible to return against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5.
  • GB Wide Receiver #11
    Packers placed WR Jayden Reed on the active/non-football injury list.
    We’ll assume this is a minor issue that will be rectified in short order. There haven’t been any reports of an injury to Reed, who has been present and active with the team throughout the offseason. The second-year receiver is hoping for a breakout campaign in 2024 after an impressive 64-793-8 line last season. In addition to Reed, the Packers also placed cornerback Corey Ballentine and offensive tackle Caleb Jones on the NFI list.
  • DET EDGE #92
    Lions placed EDGE Marcus Davenport (ankle) on the active/PUP list.
    The report comes from team reporter Tim Twentyman, who notes backup T Giovanni Manu was also placed on the active/non-football injury (NFI) list. Davenport missed 13 games with the injury before signing with the Lions in the offseason. He is expected to return during training camp before suiting up as EDGE Aidan Hutchinson’s bookend in Week 1.
