  • CLE Tackle #79
    Jones is recovering from a torn MCL that ended his 2023 campaign but has been going through team drills in OTAs. Jones was one of three Browns tackles who suffered significant injuries last season, but all three are expected to be healthy around the start of the season. Jones started nine of the 11 games he appeared in last season, playing exclusively at right tackle. He earned a PFF blocking grade of 64.7 last season and allowed three sacks on 21 pressures.
  • DEN Wide Receiver #81
    Patrick was spotted running routes and participating in team drills at Thursday’s OTAs. The veteran receiver is hoping to overcome a recent string of bad luck that saw him miss back-to-back seasons due to a torn ACL (2022) and a torn Achilles (2023) suffered in training camp. The Broncos kept Patrick around on a one-year deal earlier this offseason, but it remains to be seen how he could factor into the offense if healthy. Courtland Sutton remains on the team, and Marvin Mims and rookie Troy Franklin are both expected to factor into the offense to some degree. They also signed veteran Josh Reynolds in free agency. Assuming he makes the roster, Patrick probably doesn’t have much fantasy upside as long as the guys in front of him are healthy. Given his size and efficiency in the end zone in the past, it’s possible Patrick’s primary role comes in the red zone.
  • KC Quarterback #15
    Mahomes has relied on short-to-intermediate passing over the last three years, culminating in a career-low 6.9-yard aDot in 2023. The team refocused on the downfield passing game this offseason by adding speed to the wide receiver corps and featuring deep-ball passing in OTAs. Mahomes is reportedly honing his connection with free agent signee Marquise Brown. According to The Athletic’s Nate Taylor, nearly half of Mahomes’ Wednesday passing attempts traveled 20-plus yards downfield.
  • PIT Running Back
    A week after being released by the Chiefs, Perine now lands with the Steelers with a chance to make the roster as added backfield depth. The fifth-year pro has a career rushing line of 94-340-2 in 17 career games and appeared in just three games for the Chiefs last season. With Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren, and Cordarrell Patterson’s roles already in place for the season, Perine will likely be competing to be the fourth running back on the depth chart.
  • HOU Running Back #31
    Pierce continues to gain offseason steam in the coach-speak department despite the Texans trading for Joe Mixon and signing him to a three-year, $27 million contract extension. Ryans praised Pierce for his work this offseason, saying he “changed his body” and “has everything it takes to be a really good running back” for the Texans. Pierce struggled mightily in his second season as a pro, rushing for 145-416-2 while averaging a dismal 2.9 YPC. He eventually lost the starting role to Devin Singletary, seeing just 40 touches over the final seven regular season games. Mixon will be 28 at the start of the season. While he’s expected to handle the majority of backfield touches, he’s on the wrong side of the running back age cliff and could be spelled frequently for Pierce in hopes of keeping both backs fresh. Pierce doesn’t have much fantasy upside as long as Mixon is healthy and playing well, but he’s worth rostering as a handcuff if Mixon were to miss time.
  • PHI Wide Receiver #85
    Ross announced his retirement last July while with the Chiefs but is now back for a second go at things with the Eagles. The former No. 9 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft hasn’t played a regular-season snap since 2021 and has dealt with a myriad of injuries dating back to his days in college at Washington. Ross has a career receiving line of 62-957-11 but has totaled just 13 receptions for 241 yards and one touchdown over his last two seasons. He’ll have a chance to make the Eagles as added depth on a roster that’s short on receiver talent behind A.J. Brown and Devonta Smith, but is well off the fantasy radar even if he makes the roster.
  • NYG Quarterback #8
    Jones continues to recover from a torn ACL suffered last November. The Giants’ QB1 has already been active at OTAs and was participating in 7-on-7 drills earlier in the week. Jones is in the second year of a four-year, $160 million contract that he signed last offseason, but is walking into a “prove-it” year after throwing for just 909-2-6 in six games last season. A porous offensive line and underwhelming receiving corps did little to help Jones and the offense, but the team went out and added Malik Nabers with the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft in hopes of giving him additional weapons to work with. What remains to be seen from Jones is how his rushing upside — one of the plus sides to his fantasy outlook — will be impacted in his return from injury. If he and the Giants can get back to their 2022 form, Jones could have some upside as a low-end QB2.
  • DET Wide Receiver #9
    Williams desperately needs a third-year leap after spending much of his rookie season recovering from a torn ACL and kicking off his second year with a six-game suspension for violating the league’s gambling policies. Williams played in 12 games last season, totaling 24 receptions for 354 yards and two scores while being targeted on 17.4 percent of his routes. The 6-foot-1 speedster is expected to be well behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Sam LaPorta in the target pecking order but can add another element to a Lions’ passing game that has lacked a reliable WR2 during the Dan Campbell era. As far as fantasy is concerned, Williams could have fringe WR2/WR3 potential if he’s able to put everything together, making him a potential steal in drafts this summer.
  • NYG Tight End #12
    Waller will likely remain away as he continues to contemplate his future. Giants GM Joe Schoen said last month that the team is not giving Waller a deadline to make a decision, but as training camp draws closer, we’d expect things to be finalized one way or another. Waller once again dealt injuries that limited him to 12 games last season and averaged just 10.6 YPR, his lowest total since breaking out with the Raiders in 2019. While he’s still the best tight end on the Giants’ roster, nagging injuries have followed him for three straight seasons, and he will turn 32 shortly after the start of the season. Waller’s uncertain future has made him virtually free to draft in early drafts, making him a low-risk, medium-reward player at a position that lacks upside outside of the top players.
  • NYG Wide Receiver #86
    Slayton is entering the final year of his contract and is set to earn $8.15 million this season. The 27-year-old receiver is coming off a season in which he totaled 50 receptions for 770 yards — both career highs — and four touchdowns. A former fifth-round pick of the 2019 draft class, Slayton is hoping to earn a new contract from the Giants before reporting to camp, but there’s been little word on whether or not the Giants plan to give him a new deal at this time. Slayton is a solid field stretcher who has averaged 15.1 YPR for his career. A clear WR2 in an offense that is set to feature Malik Nabers, Slayton, is a near-replacement level player who the team could prefer to try to upgrade over once his current deal expires at the end of this season.
