    Josh Rosen Apr 18 10:10pm ET

    The New York Giants don't appear to be very interested in trading for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen if the Cardinals select Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick. The Giants are currently focused on players in this year's draft class, including a group of quarterbacks they could select with the No. 6 or No. 17 picks in the first round. However, it seems unlikely they'll take a QB at sixth overall. Rosen wasn't even the highest ranked QB on New York's draft board last year, and they are concerned with how his personality would fit in New York, according to a team source. The Giants also have no interest in trading either one of their first-round picks for Rosen, and they also aren't inclined to give up their second-round pick (37th overall). The Giants are looking for Eli Manning's successor under center despite countlessly backing Manning's abilities, but they don't feel pressured to take on Rosen if the price isn't to their liking. No matter what happens, it's unlikely that Rosen will have much redraft fantasy value in 2019.

    Kalen Ballage Apr 18 9:00pm ET

    Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage, second on the depth chart behind Kenyan Drake, has an opportunity for a much bigger role in 2019. He said he "absolutely" is trying to grab the starting job and "it doesn't really matter who had the most playing time in the past. I'm ready to do my thing." Ballage only had 36 rookie carries, but he averaged 5.3 yards per tote. Drake averaged 4.5 yards on 120 carries in 2018 and caught 53 passes for 477 yards. He should remain the top back, but Ballage should have a bigger role, depending on who Miami takes in the draft. While Ballage will likely be the No. 2, he might have standalone fantasy value in deeper leagues depending on how the Dolphins use him.

    Chris Harris Apr 18 9:00pm ET

    Denver Broncos cornerback Kareem Jackson has seen most of his time at voluntary workouts this week at safety. "For the reason that theres more to learn at safety than there is at corner," said Broncos head coach Vic Fangio. "Hes played much more corner in his career, so I wanted him to get more work in this camp all of his work at the safety position, to feel comfortable there." The 31-year-old had a career-high 87 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, two interceptions and 17 passes defensed in his final season in Houston and should help improve Denver's secondary alongside Chris Harris Jr.

    Mike Gesicki Apr 18 2:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki said he now weighs 253 pounds, which is up 13 pounds from his rookie season. Gesicki was a disappointment in his first year in the NFL, catching only 22 passes on 32 targets for 202 yards and no touchdowns in a full season. He's still just 23 years old, though, and he could easily post better numbers in his second season on a Dolphins team that is in need of pass-catching options. The situation under center leaves a lot to be desired, however. Gesicki will be worth taking as a low-end TE2 with plenty of upside left.

    Josh Rosen Apr 18 1:23pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has been the subject of trade rumors with the team reportedly eyeing Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1-overall draft pick, broke his media silence recently during an interview with Sports Illustrated TV. 'I think when people talk about, like, you can't listen to criticism or don't ever read articles, you have to be aware of what's going on to a certain extent,' Rosen said in a short video clip of the segment posted on Twitter . 'So I definitely understand the situation. I mean it's annoying, but it is what it is. Football is a business, and I definitely respect the higher-ups and their decisions.'

    DeVante Parker Apr 18 1:13pm ET

    MIami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker says he's happy the Dolphins retained him, saying he's fully healthy and ready for 'a fresh start.'

    Fantasy Spin: Parker is coming off his worst season yet with 24 catches for 309 yards and a TD on 47 targets in 11 games and belongs off the main fantasy radar in the majority of leagues until he shows otherwise.

    Duke Johnson Apr 18 12:50pm ET

    Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey said that running back Duke Johnson is "a member of this organization moving forward," and head coach Freddie Kitchens believes Johnson is a vital part of the offense. Johnson's trade request doesn't change anything, as of now. Cleveland would likely trade Johnson if they got the right offer, but it doesn't appear they're motivated to move him right now, especially with Kareem Hunt suspended for the first half of the season. The 25-year-old fell out of favor when Kitchens took over the offense last year and finished with a career-low 40 carries for 201 yards and no touchdowns on the ground. He also had a career-low 47 receptions for 429 yards and three scores. There could be a pass-catching role for Johnson behind Nick Chubb in the first half of the year if he stays in Cleveland, but fantasy owners probably won't take the bait.

    Will Fuller Apr 18 12:43pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is fully anticipated to be ready for the Texans' regular-season opener, according to general manager Brian Gaine. 'Everything is trending in the right direction,' Gaine said Thursday, April 19. 'Everything is looking good.'

    Fantasy Spin: Fuller has produced 13 TDs in 31 games, but the question remains his health as he's missed a combined 17 games over his first three seasons. Value him as a low-end WR3 for the time being.

    Saquon Barkley Apr 18 12:33pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said Thursday, April 18, he fails to understand the critics who said the Giants should've selected a quarterback over him in the 2018 NFL Draft. 'If a Rookie of the Year (award) doesn't sway that mindset I don't know what will,' Barkley said.

    Fantasy Spin: The criticism certainly didn't come from Barkley's fantasy owners as the rookie dazzled to the tune of 2,028 scrimmage yards and 15 touchdowns last season. And even if the Giants somehow bypass on drafting a QB again this spring, Barkley is the leading candidate to be the first pick in fantasy drafts this summer.

    Ezekiel Elliott Apr 18 12:30pm ET

    The Dallas Cowboys are open to finding a backup behind running back Ezekiel Elliott with Rod Smith still on the free-agent market. Elliott has won the rushing title in two of his first three seasons and hasn't missed a game due to injury, but the Cowboys need better insurance behind him. Dallas wants to find a quality backup, but they aren't sure if that'll come in free agency or through the draft. As of right now, Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn are the backups listed on the team's depth chart behind Elliott.

    Duke Johnson Apr 18 12:23pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson drew praise Thursday, April 18, from general manager John Dorsey. 'I keep telling you all, Duke's a very talented player,' Dorsey said at a news conference. 'He's a member of this organization moving forward. He understands the role he's going to play within this offense.'

    Fantasy Spin: After a career-low 87 touches last season, Johnson has asked to be traded, but there have been no takers for now, and Dorsey has no recourse but to talk him up. Expect a deal to get done, though -- perhaps on draft weekend -- and then we can access Johnson's fantasy outlook from there.

    DeVante Parker Apr 18 12:20pm ET

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker is happy that the Dolphins trusted him enough to bring him back in 2019 and said "they have confidence in me again, have trust in me, have faith in me to sign me back again." Parker also said he's fully healthy this offseason. The 26-year-old was hurt to start last season and wound up finishing with a career-low 24 catches for just 309 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. While Parker has the talent, he continues to underwhelm for Miami and fantasy owners, and he's caught only two touchdowns in the last two seasons and nine total in his four years in the league. Even if he remains the No. 1 wideout in Miami in 2019, Parker's fantasy value is down in the dumps. And Miami's quarterback situation is also troubling.

    Keke Coutee Apr 18 12:10pm ET

    Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee is doing everything in his power to stay on the field in 2019. He has changed his offseason routine to focus more on stretching and eating healthier. Coutee was rarely on the field because of recurring hamstring issues in his rookie season, and he caught 28 passes for 287 yards and one touchdown in six regular season games. If he can stay on the field all year in 2019, Coutee has a very high fantasy ceiling as the slot man in Houston.

    Jimmy Garoppolo Apr 18 12:00pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) has resumed throwing and doing dropbacks as he recovers from a torn ACL early last season, and he's hoping to take part in seven-on-seven drills when organized team activities start next month. The ultimate goal is being fully cleared for training camp in late July. It's almost certain that Garoppolo will wear a brace on his knee this year, and he doesn't think it'll impact his mobility. The 27-year-old looks to have the tools to be a solid QB1, but he's also never played in more than six games in a season in his five years in the NFL, so fantasy owners need to be cognizant not to overspend on his talent.

    Matt Ioannidis Apr 18 11:03am ET

    Washington Redskins DE Matt Ioannidis signed a three-year, $21.75 million extension with the Redskins Thursday, April 18. He received $14 million guaranteed and $3 million in incentives.

    Luke Kuechly Apr 18 8:13am ET

    Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly converted $9.05 million of his salary Thursday, April 18, into a signing bonus to create $7.24 million in salary cap space.

    Mike Davis Apr 18 2:33am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Mike Davis is set to serve as the team's primary ball carrier during the 2019 season, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

    Fantasy Spin: With Jordan Howard gone and Tarik Cohen better suited as a situational player, Davis could be in line for a lot of touches after parlaying his 728-yard, five-touchdown season last year into a $6 million deal. If Biggs' projection holds up, Davis may offer some nice upside as a depth selection.

    George Kittle Apr 18 1:10am ET

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle said he suffered "fractured cartilage" in his ribs early in the game against the Raiders last year but played through it. San Fran played Oakland on Nov. 1, so that means Kittle played around half the season after suffering that injury. The second-year professional had a truly breakout season, catching 88 passes for 1,377 yards and five touchdowns for the Niners. With quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo back healthy in 2019, the sky is the limit for Kittle. He'll likely be the third tight end off the board behind Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz in fantasy.

    Ezekiel Elliott Apr 18 1:00am ET

    Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said that the team will pick up running back Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option. The 23-year-old has two 1,000-yard seasons in his three years in the NFL and ran 304 times for 1,434 yards and six touchdowns in his 15 games last year. He also caught a career-high 77 passes for an additional 567 yards and three scores. Elliott is one of the premier running backs in the NFL and should continue to be a high first-round pick in fantasy drafts this fall.

    Bryce Callahan Apr 17 11:03pm ET

    Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot) was a limited participant during practice at the team's minicamp, while CB Isaac Yiadom (shoulder) went through team stretching and some individuals drills, but no team work. '(Callahan) could go in this camp, but we're just letting him do individual - I just want to give him a few more weeks to feel healthy,' head coach Vic Fangio said Tuesday, April 16.
