    Emmanuel Sanders Jun 3 12:50pm ET

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said on NFL Network's Total Access on Tuesday that playing with quarterback Drew Brees will be similar to his days with Peyton Manning in Denver. "Like I said in '14, that's wide receiver heaven. To be back in the situation with another Hall of Fame quarterback and trying to do something special and win a Super Bowl, I'm all in. Truthfully, I'm blessed to be in this position that I'm in right now," Sanders said. He had 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns in his first year with Manning in Denver, and he had over 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons with the Broncos. He might not return to those glory days, but Sanders can be a reliable and cheap WR3 for fantasy owners in the Big Easy if he can stay healthy.

    Trent Taylor Jun 3 12:50pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor (foot) has been sprinting, cutting and catching passes from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo while the team waits for the green light to return to their practice facilities. Taylor missed all of 2019 with a foot injury, but he's been part of a group of receivers running routes for Garoppolo in the Bay Area in recent weeks. Others include Jalen Hurd, Shawn Poindexter, Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne. Despite missing all of last year, Taylor could be the team's slot man if he proves his health this summer. While he might not be quite ready for football action at the moment, there's still time for him to get up to speed. He'll be a post-injury sleeper late in deep PPR leagues.

    Daniel Jones Jun 3 12:40pm ET

    The New York Giants have fewer concerns on the offensive line than most teams but will enter training camp with one glaring question mark, the man snapping to franchise quarterbackDaniel Jones. Experience favors 27-year-old Spencer Pulley, who has started 26 NFL games, including nine with New York in 2018. Other candidates include the 6-foot-6, 318-pound Nick Gates and rookie Shane Lemieux. Gates has the size but has mostly played tackle in his career, and Lemieux was exclusively a left guard at Oregon. Given that Jones is learning a new offense, it would make sense not to stick the sophomore QB behind an inexperienced center, but the players will battle for the job in training camp. Whoever wins the job will join one of the better guard tandems in the NFL along with fourth overall pick Andrew Thomas and veteran Nate Solder. The center position could make or break a line that has the potential to be great for Jones and running backSaquon Barkley.

    Harold Landry Jun 3 12:40pm ET

    Tennessee Titans linebackers coach Shane Bowen said that linebacker Harold Landry played too many snaps last season and that he needs to do a better job of watching Landry's snap count in 2020 in order to get the biggest bang for the buck. A second-round pick by the Titans in 2018, Landry has 13.5 sacks, 112 tackles (67 solo), one interception, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 31 games. He's been plenty productive, but it sounds like the Titans would prefer to use him less often, which could actually make him even more productive when he is on the field. The soon-to-be 24-year-old won't be on the IDP radar, but he's an outside linebacker to keep an eye on.

    James Conner Jun 3 12:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner isn't worried about how many carries he gets heading into the 2020 season. Head coach Mike Tomlin has historically leaned heavily on a single back during his time in Pittsburgh but there have been some questions as to whether he will do so in 2020 considering Conner's injury history. Conner told reporters that he expects the Steelers to run the ball better this upcoming season. "We need to establish our run game first and foremost," he told reporters. Conner will open the season as the team's No. 1 running back and he could wind up as a value in fantasy drafts if he's able to turn in a full 16-game season.

    Kenny Clark Jun 3 12:30pm ET

    Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith provided immediate returns after the Packers signed him to a lucrative free-agent deal before the 2019 season. He pressured the quarterback on 19.4 percent of pass rushes when lined up on the interior, which was the highest rate among all defenders rushing from the interior with a minimum of 100 interior pass rushes. Smith finished second overall in pressure percentage at 14.8 percent, trailing only Myles Garrett. Smith and defensive tackle Kenny Clark combined for 120 QB pressures in 2019, the most by any pass-rushing duo in the league. He had a career-high 13.5 sacks last year and 8.5 the year before, but he leaves a lot to be desired from an IDP standpoint because he's not as strong against the run and doesn't rack up many tackles.

    Myles Garrett Jun 3 12:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett played in just 10 games last year because of a suspension, but when he was on the field he was the league's most efficient disruptor with a league-high disruption rate of 18.5 percent. The Browns had a 32.9 percent pressure rate with Garrett on the field, but without him, that number dropped to 21.5 percent. He had a pressure on 17.1 percent of dropbacks in 2019, which was the highest percentage since 2016. Garrett is one of just three players (Aaron Donald and Von Miller are the others) to post a pressure rate of 12 percent or higher in each of the last three years. The former No. 1 overall pick is a top-five IDP target at the defensive line position.

    Phillip Lindsay Jun 3 11:50am ET

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay, who is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons under two different offensive coordinators, thinks new coordinator Pat Shurmur's offense fits him even better. "I just think that it's what fits my style, and I've been able to adapt to every style, but I think that this style right here is something that is going to fit me, kind of like how my rookie year was. I'm excited about that," Lindsay said. However, the Broncos added Melvin Gordon III in free agency and believe that he also fits their offensive scheme very well. Lindsay had offseason wrist surgery but said is fully healthy. He'll be motivated whenever the team is allowed to practice together. He'll have a role in this offense as a 1B to Gordon's 1A, but his fantasy stock has fallen because of Gordon's addition. Target Lindsay as a low-end RB3/flex.

    Timmy Jernigan Jun 3 1:30am ET

    Free-agent defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan had reached an agreement on a one-year, $3.25 million deal with the Houston Texans, but the two sides have agreed to part ways and Jernigan is not expected to sign with the team, according to sources informed of the situation. Jernigan didn't take a physical with the Texans and isn't expected to do so. He was previously cleared by spinal specialist Robert Watkins after playing in just 13 games in the last two seasons due to neck and foot injuries. A second-round pick of the Ravens in 2014, the 27-year-old had his best season in Baltimore in 2016, recording five sacks, 31 combined tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery. He'll look for another one-year deal on the open market now that he's parted ways with Houston.

    Budda Baker Jun 2 11:23pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals S Budda Baker led all defensive backs with 147 tackles and 11 tackles for loss in 2019. It marked the second straight season he led defensive backs in TFLs (he had 13 in 2018) and amassed at least 100 tackles.

    Malcolm Jenkins Jun 2 11:23pm ET

    New Orleans Saints S Malcolm Jenkins - as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles - and CB Marshon Lattimore were two of only four defensive backs to record four forced fumbles last season.

    Clayton Geathers Jun 2 11:13pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts S Khari Willis and free-agent S Clayton Geathers (Colts) ranked fourth and first, respectively, among all safeties who appeared in at least 14 games in catch rate allowed in 2019, according to Sports Info Solutions. Receivers recorded a catch on 16 of the 18 passes (88.9 percent) thrown in Geathers' direction, while Willis gave up a reception on 15 times in 19 targets (78.9).

    Timmy Jernigan Jun 2 9:43pm ET

    Free-agent DT Timmy Jernigan verbally agreed to a one-year contract with the Houston Texans in April, but he never passed his physical with the team and no deal was ever processed by the league. As a result, he will not sign with Houston. However, Jernigan has been cleared by Dr. Robert Watkins and is expected to draw interest from other teams, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

    Jadeveon Clowney Jun 2 9:23pm ET

    Free-agent DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney (Seahawks) has reportedly received interest from the New Orleans Saints recently, according to WBOK Radio's Nader Mirifiq.

    Courtland Sutton Jun 2 7:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos WRs Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler and Tim Patrick are considered locks to make the 2020 team, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post. WRs Diontae Spencer, DaeSean Hamilton, Tyrie Cleveland and Juwann Winfree will compete for the returner and sixth receiver jobs.

    Sony Michel Jun 2 6:33pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel led all NFL running backs with a touch rate of 63 percent in 2019.

    Fantasy Spin: Michel amassed 1,006 yards from scrimmage with seven combined touchdowns on his 259 touches as a sophomore. His usage should rise even higher while supporting Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer rather than Tom Brady in 2020. He should be drafted as a mid-tier RB2.

    James Conner Jun 2 6:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner, who is a cancer survivor, isn't worried about COVID-19 when teams eventually return to the field prior to the 2020 season. "I'm 100%," Conner said. "I had a weak immune system four years ago. It's not weak anymore, thank God. I'm OK. I'm young and healthy. I went through what I went through." The 25-year-old had Stage 2 Hodgkin lymphoma in 2015 and was declared cancer-free in May of 2016. Conner was a Pro Bowler in 2018, but he's played in just 37 games in his three seasons because of injuries and just isn't reliable as an RB1 because of that. The Steelers could also choose to spread out the carries more to keep Conner healthy in 2020, which would obviously hurt his overall upside. Draft him as a low-end RB2 with upside for more if he can just stay on the field.

    D.J. Moore Jun 2 5:40pm ET

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore and the team's receiving corps were ranked No. 8 in the league by Pro Football Focus heading into the season. While Moore had a productive 2019, the expectations are higher for the No. 1 wideout for the upcoming 2020 campaign. With Cam Newton gone in favor of Teddy Bridgewater, the 23-year-old may get some much-needed stability in order to progress as he enters his third season in the league. Moore ranked 10th in receptions (87), 10th in targets (135), and seventh in receiving yards (1,175) last year. Though he is projected to finish behind the likes of DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, and Kenny Golladay, it wouldn't be a surprise if he ended the year as one of the league's top-five fantasy wideouts.

    Luke Kuechly Jun 2 5:40pm ET

    Former Carolina Panthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly officially was placed on the Reserve/Retired list on Tuesday, according to a source. By waiting until after June 1, the Panthers can spread Kuechly's salary cap hit over the next two years and save around $6 million against the cap in 2020. Only 29 years old, Kuechly was forced to hang up his cleats early due to head injuries, but he was one of the best sideline-to-sideline linebackers in the game during his eight seasons in the NFL. Drafted ninth overall by Carolina in 2012 out of Boston College, Kuechly went on to seven Pro Bowl selections and five first-team All-Pro honors. He compiled 1,092 combined tackles (690 solo), 12.5 sacks, 75 tackles for loss, 31 QB hits, 18 interceptions, 66 passes defensed, seven forced fumbles and nine fumble recoveries in his decorated career.
