  • FA Running Back #5
    ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Leonard Fournette “intends to sign with a team before the season.”
    Per Schefter, Fournette has also re-hired his agent as he continues to look for a home in the NFL. His agent, Ari Nissim, told Schefter, “Leonard’s in the best shape of his career and I expect he will have a new home soon.” Fournette signed with the Bills in the middle of the 2023 season but didn’t see much action. He totaled 12 carries for 40 yards and was released before the end of the postseason. Fournette’s experience may allow him to land a gig as a depth option, but his days as a fantasy-relevant player appear to be over.
  • CLE Tackle #78
    Browns placed RT Jack Conklin (knee) on the active/PUP list.
    Left tackle Jedrick Wills (knee) was also placed on the PUP list. Conklin suffered a torn ACL in Week 1 of the 2023 season and has been out ever since. Wills suffered multiple knee injuries in Week 9 and was out for the remainder of the season. Both players can be activated from the PUP list and return to practice at any time during training camp. When healthy, the Browns have one of the best offensive lines in the league. The hope will be that both tackles are able to suit up in Week 1.
  • CLE Running Back #24
    Browns placed RB Nick Chubb (knee) on the active/PUP list.
    Fellow running back Nyheim Hines was placed on the active/NFI list with a knee issue of his own. Chubb is still working his way back from the devastating knee injury he suffered in Week 2 of the 2023 season. He can be removed from the PUP list at any time during training camp. If he remains on the PUP at the end of camp, the Browns will move him to reserve/PUP and he will be required to miss at least four games. The Browns have Jerome Ford and free agent addition D’Onta Foreman available to fill Chubb’s role at the start of the season. Ford should get the starting nod in Week 1, though Chubb’s eventual return could make him a non-factor midway through the fantasy season.
  • IND Wide Receiver #18
    Colts signed WR Laquon Treadwell, formerly of the Ravens.
    Indy waived WR Xavier White in a corresponding move. Treadwell bounced between the Ravens’ practice squad and active roster throughout the 2023 season. He appeared in five games and caught one pass for 16 yards. The former first-round pick will be a depth option for the Colts if he makes their 53-man roster.
  • SF Tackle #71
    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said LT Trent Williams did not report to training camp for contract-related reasons.
    Shanahan didn’t seem too worried about Williams’ absence. He told reporters discussions between Williams and the team have “been going on for a while.” Shanahan also noted that the veteran tackle will be alright missing a few practices. Williams’ contract situation isn’t as drastic as that of teammate Brandon Aiyuk, who is currently “holding in” while on the final year of his rookie deal. Williams is signed through 2026 but doesn’t have any guaranteed money left on his contract. It may only take a restructure that adds more guarantees to the deal to get Williams back on the practice field.
  • NO Running Back #25
    Saints coach Dennis Allen said Kendre Miller (hamstring) “needs to figure out how to stay healthy.”
    Miller left Wednesday’s practice early with a hamstring issue. Allen would go on to say, “It’s hard to make the team when you’re in the training room all the time.” Allen has been critical of Miller in the past, saying earlier in the offseason that he wants to see more consistency from the young back. Miller missed the start of his rookie season with a hamstring issue and was later sidelined with an ankle injury. His current injury will give Jamaal Williams a chance to cement himself as the backup to Alvin Kamara. Williams posted a dreadful 106/306/1 rushing line in 2023.
  • DEN Running Back #33
    Sean Payton said Javonte Williams has lost weight heading into the 2024 season.
    Payton said he wanted Williams to look more like he did during his final season of college ball. He then noted that Williams’ goal was to get down to 220 or 221 pounds, which would be a few pounds heavier than his weight at the NFL Combine. Payton named Williams as a player who stood out during the first day of training camp and praised him for his speed. Williams was an electric player early in his career but looked sluggish in 2023. He averaged 3.6 yards per carry after returning from a catastrophic knee injury in the previous season. If Williams can return to form while still holding onto a lead-back role this year, he will be a phenomenal value at his current positional ADP of RB34.
  • BAL Quarterback #8
    Lamar Jackson (illness) returned to practice Wednesday.
    Jackson was sent home from practice earlier this week because of an illness. He missed three sessions in total. Jackson has inexplicably dealt with more illnesses over the years than any almost other player, so the news wasn’t entirely shocking. Backup quarterback Josh Johnson should see an uptick in reps if Jackson misses any more time. Jackson remains a strong pick to finish as a top-five fantasy quarterback despite his clear lack of a daily probiotic.
  • LAC Running Back #4
    Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh said RB Gus Edwards underwent offseason surgery.
    Harbaugh didn’t offer any specifics on the surgery. Edwards was dealing with an undisclosed issue earlier in the offseason but Harbaugh was confident and correct when he said Edwards would be ready for training camp. Per ESPN’s Kris Rhim, Edwards sat out of team drills today but was active in individual drills. Harbaugh told reporters that they are giving him a “longer runway” to be a full participant in training camp. For now, fantasy managers can pencil him in as the Chargers’ top back with J.K. Dobbins and rookie Kimani Vidal both vying for the RB2 role.
  • SF Wide Receiver #11
    Brandon Aiyuk is not practicing at the start of training camp.
    It was reported earlier this week that Aiyuk would show up to 49ers training camp and that much has happened. However, Aiyuk was in street clothes and did not participate during the first day. It appears we have a “hold in”. Aiyuk is in the final year of his rookie deal and is seeking a contract extension but has been unable to come to an agreement with the 49ers. He has also requested a trade, though it’s fair to say San Francisco has most of the leverage in the situation. For now, we’re stuck waiting to see who blinks first.
  • PHI Wide Receiver #80
    PHLY’s Zach Berman reports Eagles WR Parris Campbell ran with the starters on the first day of training camp.
    The Eagles signed Campbell to a one-year deal in the offseason after letting Quez Watkins and Julio Jones walk in free agency. Watkins was signed by the Steelers while Jones remains a free agent. Philly also selected wide receivers Johnny Wilson and Ainias Smith on Day Three of the draft. They took a lot of dart throws on potential third receivers and Campbell appears to have the inside track to that role at the beginning of camp. Redraft managers don’t need to worry about this camp battle, but Best Ball drafters could consider Campbell as a final-round gamble if he continues to run with the starters.
