    Darren Waller Aug 8 2:50pm ET
    Darren Waller

    Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller remains absent at training camp practice on Monday with an undisclosed injury. The fact that the Raiders haven't disclosed what is keeping Waller off the field most likely means it's nothing too serious, but we'll keep you updated once we hear more on the situation. For now, there's no reason to drop the 29-year-old tight end in your fantasy rankings for the upcoming 2022 season. Waller played in only 11 games due to injury in 2021 and finished with 55 receptions (93 targets) for 665 yards and two touchdowns. With All-Pro wideout Davante Adams now in town, Waller could see his target share drop enough to take him out of consideration as a top-three fantasy tight end.

    Zach Wilson Aug 8 2:40pm ET
    Zach Wilson

    New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) limped off the field in training camp practice on Monday, but head coach Robert Saleh said Becton's knee is stable and doesn't seem like a big deal in terms of severity. However, he'll head for an MRI exam. It's good news that the 23-year-old's knee injury isn't serious, but it's concerning for a player that missed all but one game in 2021 due to a knee injury. When he was sidelined last year, George Fant filled in and played really well at left tackle, prompting the Jets to move Becton from left tackle to right tackle entering his third NFL season. If the former first-rounder can stay healthy in 2022, it would be great news for New York's offensive line in front of second-year quarterback Zach Wilson.

    Jared Goff Aug 8 2:40pm ET
    Jared Goff

    Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that he wants to get the starters a quarter's worth of repetitions in Friday's preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons. While Goff won't be anything more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy, he could have some spike weeks with a receiver corps that includes D.J. Chark, Amon-Ra St. Brown, first-round rookie Jameson Williams (knee), Quintez Cephus, Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond, not to mention tight end T.J. Hockenson. The 27-year-old signal-caller will also operate behind a solid offensive line, so the Lions offense could surprise some folks in good matchups in 2022.

    Rashod Bateman Aug 8 2:30pm ET
    Rashod Bateman

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman returned to training camp practice on Monday after he missed practice on Friday with an undisclosed injury. It never seemed like a very serious, but fantasy managers shouldn't need to worry about the team's No. 1 receiver moving forward. The 22-year-old former first-rounder will have added opportunities in the passing game with Marquise Brown now in Arizona. In his first year in the NFL in 2021, Bateman caught 46 of his 68 targets for 515 yards and one touchdown in 12 games (four starts). Fantasy managers should consider him a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with upside heading into his second season in the league.

    Gus Edwards Aug 8 2:30pm ET
    Gus Edwards

    While Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday, fellow running back Gus Edwards (knee) is the furthest away and is likely doubtful for Week 1 of the regular season. When healthy, Edwards figures to be the No. 2 behind Dobbins, but it looks like he won't be ready to go early in the year. Baltimore also has Mike Davis, rookie Tyler Badie and Justice Hill to pick up the slack behind Dobbins. Like Dobbins, Edwards missed all of 2021 with a torn ACL, but the 27-year-old had 144 carries for 723 yards and six rushing touchdowns in 2020. Edwards will probably go undrafted in standard 12-team leagues to begin the year, but he'll be a handcuff waiver-wire pickup for Dobbins once he's healthy.

    Chase Edmonds Aug 8 2:20pm ET
    Chase Edmonds

    Miami Dolphins running backs Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert (knee) are listed as the team's starting running backs on Miami's first official depth chart of training camp. While Edmonds is the presumed lead back in new head coach Mike McDaniel's offense, there remains a strong competition in training camp that involves Mostert, Sony Michel and Myles Gaskin. Mostert is coming off another lost season due to a knee injury, but he has familiarity with McDaniel from their time in San Francisco. Edmonds, 26, has three-down versatility and is the most attractive fantasy back in Miami, but his ceiling will likely be limited in this crowded backfield. As of right now, fantasy managers should be targeting him as an RB3/flex with upside.

    Jameis Winston Aug 8 2:10pm ET
    Jameis Winston

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (ankle) rolled his ankle in training camp practice on Monday and is undergoing further evaluation. With Winston leaving, veteran Andy Dalton took over his repetitions in 11-on-11 work. Winston is attempting to return this year from a torn ACL that he suffered in Week 8 of last season, so this is yet another setback, although we don't know the severity of his ankle injury just yet. Although Winston isn't 100 percent yet with his knee, the expectation is that he'll be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. If Winston were to miss time again in 2022 due to injury, Dalton would be first in line for starting QB duties, although quarterback-turned-tight-end Taysom Hill could also see some snaps under center. Stay tuned for more information on Winston's ankle injury.

    J.K. Dobbins Aug 8 2:10pm ET
    J.K. Dobbins

    Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday and is on track to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season against the New York Jets, according to sources. Dobbins has been saying all along that he was ready to practice in training camp, but the Ravens brought him along slowly after he missed all of last year with a torn ACL and other ligament damage in his knee. Gus Edwards (knee), who also missed all of 2021 with a torn ACL, remains behind Dobbins in his recovery. The 23-year-old Dobbins figures to be Baltimore's lead back in a run-heavy offensive attack if he's healthy this year, making him the most attractive RB in fantasy on this team. He'll continue to rise on draft boards as an RB2 if he doesn't suffer any setbacks between now and Week 1.

    Rachaad White Aug 8 1:10pm ET
    Rachaad White

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted rookie running back Rachaad White 91st overall after releasing veteran Ronald Jones, who has since signed with the Chiefs. White has been projected to primarily take on a role in the passing game given his receiving skill set, however, he has shown an ability to excel in other areas as well. White reportedly scored twice during the live goal-line drill and even thrived in pass protection, which will be key to seeing playing time in his rookie season. Leonard Fournette will undoubtedly open the season as the starter, but if White can continue to earn work on first and second down to pair with his receiving role, he could have standalone weekly flex value in deeper leagues, in addition to being a valuable handcuff for Fournette.

    Donald Parham Aug 8 1:10pm ET
    Donald Parham

    As reported on Sunday, Los Angeles Chargers tight end Donald Parham Jr. (hamstring) left practice with a leg injury. The severity of the injury was unknown at the time, but head coach Brandon Staley has since confirmed he expects Parham to miss this week of training camp. This is disappointing for Parham, who was making a real impression and challenging veteran Gerald Everett for the starting role. Hopefully, he will return to the field next week and continue to compete for the job.

    Scott Miller Aug 8 1:10pm ET
    Scott Miller

    Tampa Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller was a possible cut candidate as recently as a few weeks ago, but he is now fully healthy and competing to secure a role. Miller missed seven games due to a turf toe injury in 2021 that really derailed his growth in the offense. Miller returned for the playoffs, catching four passes for 38 yards, but he has since struggled to regain his form. With more competition behind Mike Evans (hamstring) and Chris Godwin (knee) entering 2022, including Russell Gage and Julio Jones, Miller will need to impress in training camp to remain on the roster and attempt to climb the depth chart. He's well off the fantasy radar entering the season.

    Tyler Conklin Aug 8 1:00pm ET
    Tyler Conklin

    The New York Jets signed free-agent tight end Tyler Conklin to a three-year, $21 million deal this offseason. This coincided with a three-year, $24 million deal for fellow tight end C.J. Uzomah, creating some ambiguity at the position. While it's still early, it seems Conklin is leading the way. Head coach Robert Saleh said, "Conk is awesome. He's been fantastic for us." He further highlighted his three-down skill set, finishing by saying "he's been a pleasant surprise." While it's unknown at this point just how a big of a leap this offense will take, the lead tight end would slot in behind sophomore receiver Elijah Moore and rookie Garrett Wilson as the third option, providing sufficient production to be a weekly streamer with upside.

    Cade Otton Aug 8 1:00pm ET
    Cade Otton

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted rookie tight end Cade Otton 106th overall to join veteran Cameron Brate and future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski. Things changed, however, when Gronkowski announced his retirement, prompting the team to sign veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph. There are a lot of bodies to fill this position, but Otton has by far the most upside and untapped potential. Otton has reportedly flashed in camp and gained quarterback Tom Brady's trust, which is typically a difficult task for a rookie. With Chris Godwin (knee) potentially missing time to start the season, Mike Evans (hamstring) currently sidelined and a host of unproven options behind them, Otton has a chance to secure a meaningful role entering Week 1, making him a player to add to your watch list.

    Taysom Hill Aug 8 12:50pm ET
    Taysom Hill

    New Orleans Saints quarterback/tight end Taysom Hill (ribs) had a limited training camp practice on Monday and mostly did individual drills. It's all part of head coach Dennis Allen's ramp-up process for Hill, who suffered rib injuries early in training camp. The 31-year-old is making the transition from full-time quarterback to tight end this year, so the lost repetitions isn't ideal. Hill will continue to take some snaps under center, but his main contributions will be at tight end, where he's in a crowded room with Adam Trautman, Juwan Johnson, Nick Vannett and Chris Herndon. Unless quarterback Jameis Winston misses time with another injury, Hill is off the fantasy radar to begin the 2022 season.

    Pharaoh Brown Aug 8 12:50pm ET
    Pharaoh Brown

    Houston Texans tight end Pharaoh Brown lost 18 pounds this offseason after watching film of himself and deciding that he looked slow and unathletic. "He's listed as a tight end, but he can play in line, he can move out," head coach Lovie Smith said. "It's a tough matchup because he has big wide receiver skills. Just another weapon that we have to be able to use." Brown is looking to put up big numbers in a contract year after posting a career-high 23 catches for 171 yards and no touchdowns on 34 targets over 15 games (12 starts) in Houston in 2021. The 28-year-old could be a matchup nightmare when lined up against cornerbacks, but with Brevin Jordan also at the position, Brown can be avoided in most fantasy drafts to begin the season.

    James Robinson Aug 8 12:40pm ET
    James Robinson

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson (Achilles) is taking snaps with the first-team offense at training camp practice on Monday for the first time all summer, which seems pretty significant, according to SI.com's John Shipley. Robinson is attempting to come back from a torn Achilles suffered last year, and most of the offseason hype has gone to Travis Etienne Jr., who missed all of his rookie season with a foot injury. Robinson, 23, seems to be recovering nicely and has a chance to be ready for Week 1, but it remains to be seen how Robinson and Etienne will co-exist in head coach Doug Pederson's offense. At the very minimum, Etienne will take a significant amount of pass-game work, but Robinson shouldn't be overlooked as an RB3/flex in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

    Justin Tucker Aug 8 12:40pm ET
    Justin Tucker

    The Baltimore Ravens reached agreement on a four-year contract extension with kicker Justin Tucker on Monday, which is expected to make him the NFL's highest-paid kicker. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but the Pittsburgh Steelers recently signed Chris Boswell for four years and $20 million, so it should be north of that figure. Tucker is the best kicker in the NFL, racking up five Pro Bowl appearances and five All-Pro nods for Baltimore in his 10 seasons. In 2021, he had a league-high 94.6 field-goal percentage, making 35 of his 37 attempts, including a 66-yarder. The 32-year-old didn't miss a single one of his 32 extra-point tries. Tucker should once again be the first fantasy kicker off the board in drafts.

    Aaron Rodgers Aug 8 12:30pm ET
    Aaron Rodgers

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won't play in the team's preseason opener on Friday against the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Matt LaFleur said that Jordan Love will get the start. It's not a big surprise that the 38-year-old future Hall of Famer will be rested in the team's first preseason game, especially after he didn't play at all in the preseason last fall. The Packers are considering giving Rodgers some repetitions in the final preseason game on Aug. 25 against the Kansas City Chiefs this year. With All-Pro receiver Davante Adams gone, Rodgers' fantasy stock has fallen quite a bit to the low-end QB1/high-end QB2 range for the 2022 season.

    Baker Mayfield Aug 8 12:20pm ET
    Baker Mayfield

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield has the inside track on the starting job over Sam Darnold to open the 2022 regular season. Mayfield and Darnold opened training camp in an open competition and have been splitting first-team repetitions pretty much down the middle. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says it's clear that it's Mayfield's job to lose. Darnold might be the more steady and safe option, but Mayfield has more ability and more "wow" plays. Mayfield should only gain more of an edge as he gets a better grasp of the team's playbook as well. The best-case scenario for the Panthers is if Mayfield wins the job outright. In the end, Carolina will be a defense-first team, and whoever wins the QB competition will be just a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

    Christian Kirk Aug 8 12:10pm ET
    Christian Kirk

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk limped off the field at training camp practice on Monday with a trainer with an undisclosed injury. We'll get you more details when we know what is ailing Kirk. The 25-year-old didn't suit up for the Hall of Fame game last Thursday against the Las Vegas Raiders, and it remains to be seen if he'll play in the team's second preseason game this Friday against the Cleveland Browns. The Jags spent big on Kirk in the offseason to give second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence some more firepower. Consistency might be a problem for Kirk and the rest of Jacksonville's pass-catchers, though, even if Lawrence takes a step forward with new head coach Doug Pederson.
