    Tyron Johnson Jun 23 10:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Tyron Johnson is a 4.3-second 40-yard dash speedster that made the most of his 20 receptions for 398 yards last season. T-Billy impressed the coaches with his speed during offseason practices and is a qualified third receiver for the Bolts behind Mike Williams and Keenan Allen. The 25-year-old from Oklahoma State averaged a healthy 19.9 yards per catch in 2020 and an average depth of target of 20.3 yards. If Johnson wins the competition for the No. 3 job in LA over Jalen Guyton, the burner will be an enticing fantasy flier because his skill set meshes nicely with quarterback Justin Herbert's big arm down the field. You definitely need to keep tabs on Johnson's progress in training camp this summer.

    Kendall Hinton Jun 23 10:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton, who was forced to start at quarterback in an emergency situation in the 31-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints last year, has stood out in offseason workouts, according to head coach Vic Fangio. However, the former Wake Forest quarterback/wide receiver still faces long odds in a crowded depth chart at receiver. "He's super-aggressive to the ball. You feel like you can throw him a ball one-on-one and he's going to go get it," quarterback Drew Lock said. The 24-year-old threw two interceptions on his nine pass attempts and is unlikely to be relevant as a wide receiver in fantasy in 2021 despite his improvements at receiver this year. Hinton is currently buried behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler, Tyrie Cleveland and rookies Branden Mack and Seth Williams on the depth chart.

    DeShone Kizer Jun 23 10:00pm ET

    Tennessee Titans quarterback DeShone Kizer has looked good in organized team activities and minicamp this offseason, especially on midrange routes across the middle. Kizer worked only with quarterbacks coach Pat O'Hara last year as the team's "quarantine QB," and his quick decision-making in offseason practices is evidence that he has a strong understanding of the playbook. Like starter Ryan Tannehill, the fifth-year veteran can make most of the necessary throws and can also make plays on the move. Kizer looks ready to compete with Logan Woodside for the backup job in training camp next month. The 25-year-old last played in 2018 with the Green Bay Packers, but he should be at least serviceable if he's forced into action in 2021 because of a Tannehill injury.

    Laviska Shenault Jr. Jun 23 9:30pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. has arguably been the team's best offensive player throughout organized team activities and minicamp this offseason. It's an important development due to the addition of Marvin Jones and presence of D.J. Chark. Rookie running back Travis Etienne has also been getting repetitions at receiver. The Jags are using Shenault as a receiver instead of trying to use him in the backfield, and his development as a pass-catcher has been a highlight of the spring. The 22-year-old wasn't overly impressive in his rookie season, but he was also working with quarterbacks Gardner Minshew II, Jake Luton and Mike Glennon. With first overall pick Trevor Lawrence now under center and Shenault likely to move to the slot, expect an improvement in Year 2.

    Carson Wentz Jun 23 9:20pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz didn't have a great relationship with his teammates while with the Philadelphia Eagles, but according to those inside the Colts organization, the transition this offseason has been a smooth one. "He comes in and asks about my family, my sister and things like that," running back Nyheim Hines said. "As a new guy, it's pretty cool. It shows that he's caring and trying to take care of us." Wentz has also turned a lot of heads with his play on the field in offseason practices. The 28-year-old signal-caller has performed as a top-five fantasy QB in head coach Frank Reich's offense before, but can he do it in Indy now? With a solid offensive line in front of him, Wentz is a QB2 target with QB1 upside in his new home.

    Tee Higgins Jun 23 9:10pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins seems poised for a big season after leading the team in receiving in his rookie campaign. Coaches and teammates have noticed Higgins' physical development this offseason, but he has flown under the radar due to the addition of wideout Ja'Marr Chase in the first round this year. The 22-year-old second-year pass-catcher has a bright future, but his fantasy ceiling took a hit with the addition of Chase, who will command a large target share right away. Higgins is an excellent target as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 after catching 67 passes for 908 yards and six touchdowns in 2020, and that was without quarterback Joe Burrow for a full season.

    Isaiah Hodgins Jun 23 8:50pm ET

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins was a standout during the first few days of last year's training camp, but a shoulder injury kept him out all season. Now healthy, Hodgins stood out again during organized team activities and minicamp and shed his red non-contact jersey. He has an uphill battle in a crowded receiver room in Buffalo, but he has received praise from head coach Sean McDermott and quarterback Josh Allen. The 22-year-old was taken with the 207th overall selection in the 2020 draft out of Oregon State after he caught 176 passes for 2,322 yards and 20 touchdowns in three collegiate seasons. He's off the fantasy radar for now, but keep an eye on him later this summer in training camp.

    C.J. Mosley Jun 23 8:50pm ET

    New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley, who opted out in 2020 due to COVID-19 and played in just two games due to injuries in 2019, could have a bounce-back year in 2021. Mosley looked slimmer and quicker during offseason practices, which should help him transition to the team's 4-3 defensive scheme. He was one of the league's best off-ball linebackers before his injuries in his first year with the Jets, but he'll need to prove that the rust is shaken off this summer in training camp. The Jets defense should take a huge step forward if Mosley returns to his pre-injury form, and savvy fantasy managers in IDP leagues will take advantage of his low cost.

    Justin Fields Jun 23 8:40pm ET

    The Chicago Bears are expected to give rookie quarterback Justin Fields a lot of work in preseason games this fall. The Bears plan is to start with veteran Andy Dalton under center to begin the season, but Fields is expected to take over at some point when he's ready. The 11th overall pick is fitting in just fine and said he's completely on board with the team's plan. "My job is, strictly, get better and be the best quarterback I can be, and hope my team wins. That's what I'm going to do whether it's starting, whether it's sitting, I'm going to do whatever is going to help us win," Fields said. His dual-threat ability makes him an excellent dynasty/keeper target this year, but only time will tell if he can make some noise in single-year setups in 2021.

    Sammy Watkins Jun 23 8:30pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Sammy Watkins was the team's best receiver at minicamp, but he's coming off the worst season of his seven-year career. "I'm not going to lie to you; it is fun," quarterback Lamar Jackson said of Watkins. "A big receiver, nice target, fast guy. Sammy is going to make our job a lot easier." The Ravens don't throw the ball much as a run-first offense, but they upgraded their receiving corps with Watkins and rookies Rashod Bateman and Tylan Wallace in the draft. Watkins is going undrafted in most leagues because of his poor performance in 2020, but if he gains chemistry with Jackson as one of his top targets, he could be a fantastic late-round value in deeper leagues at his current ADP of 214.

    Cordarrelle Patterson Jun 23 8:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson, who will be a major part of special teams while also being used as a gadget guy on offense, could be used in more of a traditional running back role behind lead back Mike Davis. The only thing we really know is that Davis is expected to be the primary ball-carrier, but this will be the first time he's actually entered a season with that role. The coaches have been impressed with what they've seen from Qadree Ollison this offseason, so Patterson will have to earn a role in this backfield in his first year in Atlanta. He's unlikely to see enough weekly touches to be relevant in most leagues, but perhaps the Falcons line him up at receiver after they traded away All-Pro Julio Jones.

    Gerald Everett Jun 23 8:10pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll sees big things for tight end Gerald Everett in his first year with the team. "This is I think the fanciest, sweetest-looking receiver/tight end mix that we've had. He's like a wide receiver, he's got terrific after-the-catch run ability, really aggressive and he's a good blocker, too," Carroll said. The 2017 second-rounder follows offensive coordinator Shane Waldron into town. Waldron was the Rams tight ends coach during Everett's rookie season. Carroll said Everett knows Waldron's offense "inside and out." The 27-year-old had a career-high 41 catches and 417 yards last year, and he could be Seattle's true No. 3 receiver behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. At Everett's current ADP, he's a low-risk, high-upside, low-end TE1 now that Jacob Hollister and Greg Olsen are no longer on the team.

    Baker Mayfield Jun 23 7:50pm ET

    The agents for Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield don't plan to drag out a contract extension with their client and aren't opposed to getting something done this summer. "We pretty much know what's coming on down the road and what's been done. We don't have any particular reluctance about doing a deal. But I think something will be done this summer," Jack Mills said. "As far as trying to get a deal done, I don't know if it'll get done. It's something that would be pretty much in the team's control." Even though Mayfield's fifth-year option for the 2022 season was picked up and he said he's "in no rush" for an extension, it sounds like his agents would rather get something done before the 2021 season. The preferred length of the deal is for four years, but the two sides haven't discussed that yet. The Browns might want to get out ahead of extensions for Bills QB Josh Allen and Ravens QB Lamar Jackson. Regardless of whether he has a new extension in 2021, Mayfield will be more of a QB2 in Cleveland's run-first offense.

    Nate Ebner Jun 23 10:03am ET

    Updating previous reports, free-agent FS Nate Ebner (Giants) withdrew from competing for a spot on the USA Rugby team Tuesday, June 22, which means he's likely to re-sign with the New York Giants soon.

    Joe Tryon Jun 22 12:50pm ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed first-round outside linebacker Joe Tryon to his four-year rookie contract on Tuesday. Tryon was taken 32nd overall in the first round of this year's NFL draft out of the University of Washington. He opted out of the 2020 season due to concerns around COVID-19, but he managed to record eight sacks in college in 2019. Depending on how ready Tryon is for the NFL after taking a year off, he's an exciting pass-rusher off the edge that could become an impact player right away for an improving Buccaneers defense. He has the size and strength to be a full-time pass-rusher, but he also has the technique to drop into coverage if asked to do so. If not for the fact that he didn't play at all in 2020, he might've been long gone at pick No. 32.

    Antonio Brown Jun 22 12:33pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown's probation was completed a year early Tuesday, June 22, and the case involving a battery charge has been finalized.

    Fantasy Spin: AB looks to be getting some of his legal matters put to rest. He is an upside WR3 in fantasy with peaks and valleys expected.

    Chris Evans Jun 22 12:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan has been impressed with rookie running back Chris Evans so far this offseason. "He's got the most natural hands for a running back that I've ever been around," Callahan said. Evans was selected with the 202nd overall pick in this year's NFL draft out of Michigan. While the 23-year-old has the physical skills, he doesn't have a ton of experience. He probably won't be anything more than a late-round flier in much deeper fantasy leagues, but he could be dangerous in this offense eventually, especially in point-per-reception formats. Evans is obviously a much more attractive dynasty/keeper piece, but if Joe Mixon misses extended time with injury, there's definitely a path for Evans to find some relevant single-year appeal in a rising Bengals offense.

    Golden Tate Jun 22 12:10pm ET

    Free-agent wide receiver Golden Tate remains available on the open market after being released by the New York Giants following two disappointing seasons. The 32-year-old hasn't received much interest, but he wants to continue playing and mentioned the Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Rams as three teams he'd be interested in joining. Tate wouldn't mind reuniting with quarterback Matthew Stafford in LA after enjoying three 1,000-yard seasons with Stafford in Detroit. The veteran wideout caught just 35 of 53 targets for 388 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games (four starts) for New York in 2020. He was benched at one point and dealt with a calf injury, so Tate will have to prove he's worth a spot on fantasy rosters again if he signs with a new team.

    Frank Clark Jun 22 12:00am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark was arrested in Los Angeles on Sunday after police saw a submachine gun in his car. Officers noticed a bag with an Uzi sticking out in plain sight in the car, and Clark was then arrested on suspicion of having a concealed firearm in a vehicle. He was booked into an LA county jail and released Monday on $35,000 bond. "We are aware of the matter, which will be reviewed under the NFL's personal conduct policy," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said. The 28-year-old pass-rusher spent the first four seasons of his career with the Seattle Seahawks before being traded to the Chiefs in 2019. Clark has been a Pro Bowler each of the last two years with KC, so any suspension would be bad news for the Chiefs defense. He has 49 sacks in 91 career games, including 14 total in the last two seasons.
