  • Player Notes
    Kareem Hunt Aug 7 9:50pm ET
    Kareem Hunt

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt was spotted doing 11-on-11 work during Sunday's practice. The veteran didn't participate in team drills over the last few days and recently requested a trade. However, with the Browns denying the demand, it appears Hunt has already raised the white flag. Although the 27-year-old is listed behind Nick Chubb on the depth chart, a spot he's very familiar with, he has historically been a relatively reliable PPR option due to his pass-catching ability. Still, he's dealt with injuries and off-the-field issues over the years, which remain concerns for fantasy managers heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

    Tyrod Taylor Aug 7 9:30pm ET
    Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll reported he expects everyone healthy to suit up for Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots. Daboll hopes to expose his players to as many live reps as possible, allowing everyone to become familiar with the new coaching staff. Although it's unknown how much work guys like Daniel Jones, Tyrod Taylor, and Saquon Barkley, among others, will receive versus New England, it will offer a small glimpse of what's to come for fantasy managers heading into the regular season.

    Justin Jefferson Aug 7 9:10pm ET
    Justin Jefferson

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson has been featured in different parts of the field throughout training camp. In an attempt to exploit opposing defenses this year, head coach Kevin O'Connell, who served as the Rams offensive coordinator last season, plans on utilizing Jefferson the same way Cooper Kupp was showcased in 2021-22. The 23-year-old has been a fantastic addition to fantasy rosters, accumulating 3,016 yards and 17 touchdowns off 196 catches since being drafted in 2020. Although Kupp should continue to be a reliable asset for managers in all formats, Jefferson's skill set could allow him to finish as the year's top fantasy wideout.

    Myles Gaskin Aug 7 9:00pm ET
    Myles Gaskin

    Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin isn't a lock to be the No. 1 option on the depth chart. With the Dolphins having a crowded backfield consisting of Salvon Ahmed, Sony Michel, Chase Edmonds, and Raheem Mostert, it's anyone's guess who has the edge during training camp, especially with head coach Mike McDaniel remaining non-committal to reporters. While Gaskin may end up as McDaniel's preferred runner, it's unlikely he'll be a week-to-week fantasy option this season. As a result, fantasy managers may want to avoid this situation altogether, although Gaskin, Edmonds, Mostert, and Michel could have some potent showings in 2022-23.

    Josh Jacobs Aug 7 8:40pm ET
    Josh Jacobs

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs isn't on the trade block, at least for now. After the 24-year-old was on the field for multiple series throughout the exhibition bout against the Jaguars, rumblings began to swirl about a potential move. However, head coach Josh McDaniels was quick to squash any rumors, indicating his preference to subject his players to "live hits" during the preseason, which can't be replicated at practice. Jacobs, whose fifth-year option was declined this offseason, had a down year running the ball in 2021, finishing with only 872 yards and nine touchdowns off 217 carries. Yet, he compiled a career-high 54 catches for 348 yards. While some fantasy managers expect the Alabama alum to bounce back this season, doing so may prove difficult with Kenyan Drake and Zamir White forecasted to also receive touches out of the backfield.

    Kareem Hunt Aug 7 6:40pm ET
    Kareem Hunt

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt shocked many when he decided to request a trade from the organization. He started skipping team drills in camp while he seeks a new contract. The organization has responded by fining Hunt and declining his request for a trade. This ultimately might backfire on Hunt since the Browns do have depth at the running back position. Nick Chubb is a stud and D'Ernest Johnson has proven himself to be a capable option. The Browns would likely move Hunt if the team received real assets in return. However, it seems unlikely that the Browns are going to move Hunt just because he requested a new deal.

    Jimmy Garoppolo Aug 7 6:40pm ET
    Jimmy Garoppolo

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been on the trade block all offseason long. Despite that, there doesn't appear to be a clear trade partner for the veteran quarterback. At this point, it sounds like the team is fine with waiting until cutdown day to make a final decision on Garoppolo. There isn't much of a market for Garoppolo, so the team is waiting to see if another quarterback suffers an injury in camp. It's also worth noting that Garoppolo is working his way back from injury, so that could be part of the reason his trade market is slow. Regardless, fantasy managers shouldn't expect this situation to be resolved anytime soon.

    Velus Jones Jr. Aug 7 6:30pm ET
    Velus Jones Jr.

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. could very well move up the depth chart quickly during training camp. The rookie wideout has reportedly hit the ground running in Chicago. The Bears took Jones in the third round, so clearly they believe in his ability on the field. It's also worth noting that Byron Pringle (quad) and N'Keal Harry (ankle) are sidelined right now. The Bears have little reliable depth, so they might be forced to use Jones to begin the season. He'll be a possible late-round target on draft day.

    N'Keal Harry Aug 7 6:10pm ET
    N'Keal Harry

    Chicago Bears wide receiver N'Keal Harry (ankle) was forced to exit Saturday's practice due to an ankle injury. It has now been revealed that Harry suffered a high-ankle sprain, which is not good news. The former first round pick was already having to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster. There is a good chance he misses a few weeks from this injury. The loss of Harry should mean more snaps for players such as Velus Jones Jr. and Dazz Newsome. This is a tough blow to a player who has struggled to make a name for himself in the league. Hopefully, Harry won't miss too much time, but it'll likely mean more looks for some younger players.

    Raheem Mostert Aug 7 5:13pm ET
    Raheem Mostert

    Dynasty | With no bell-cow running backs on the roster, there's fierce competition between all of them for the Dolphins starting role. Dynasty Analysis: The Dolphins currently roster Myles Gaskin, Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, Sony Michel and Salvon Ahmed so there's no shortage of noteworthy backs competing for the top spot. Gaskin and Ahmed have history with the team and are likely on the outside looking in due to prior experience. Newcomer Chase Edmonds is/was the favorite to receive the bulk of the regular-season work but fellow new back Raheem Mostert is said to be looking explosive in camp. It's anyone's guess who will emerge on top early in September but our money remains on a combination of Edmonds and Mostert leading the way in a rotation. Edmonds is found as DLF's RB35 while Mostert comes in at RB65.

    N'Keal Harry Aug 7 4:13pm ET
    N'Keal Harry

    Dynasty | Bears receiver N'Keal Harry suffered what appeared to be a significant ankle injury during practice Dynasty Analysis: After washing out in New England, Harry caught in with the receiver-needy Bears in an attempt to get a fresh start. No word yet on the severity as the team is awaiting further evaluation and results but best case scenario would seem to suggest at least a multiple week injury. We'll hope for the best for Harry and his loss would be another blow to an already suspect receiving corps. in the Windy City. Harry has fallen from the dynasty radar and remains unranked on DLF's receiver rankings.

    Odell Beckham Jr. Aug 7 4:13pm ET
    Odell Beckham Jr.

    Dynasty | No signing is imminent for free agent receiver Odell Beckham Dynasty Analysis: Expected to miss at least the first half of the 2022 regular season, Beckham will continue to rehab while waiting for his next best opportunity to present itself. Now in his age-30 season, OBJ would seem to be a fit for the Rams once again though the Packers are also said to be interested. As DLF's WR64, he's a dynasty "hold" while we wait and see where the mercurial receiver ultimately ends up. In any case, he's best rostered by competitive dynasty teams looking for late-season magic due to bye weeks or injury.

    Josh Jacobs Aug 7 4:13pm ET
    Josh Jacobs

    Dynasty | Las Vegas running back Josh Jacobs won't be traded Dynasty Analysis: Twitter was all ablaze after Jacobs garnered seven touches in the team's pre-season game believing the veteran was on the trade block or behind in the running back competition. In the end, it was just new head coach Josh McDaniels trying to get his backs 'live' hits that can't be reproduced in training camp. The team also declined Jacobs' fifth-year option, adding further fuel to the fire that he could be moved. Jacobs' dynasty value continues to fall, now found as DLF's RB23, but he's still expected to carry a majority of the load for the Raiders in 2022 before becoming a free agent in 2023. As a back end RB2, there's value present for enterprising dynasty coaches with the intestinal fortitude of risk-on assets.

    Dameon Pierce Aug 7 2:00pm ET
    Dameon Pierce

    Houston Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce has a shot to be the team's lead back in his rookie season. Fantasy managers probably aren't looking closely into Houston's backfield, especially since it could be more of a committee approach in 2022. Veteran Marlon Mack (Achilles) appears healthy and is the favorite to open the year as Houston's primary running back, but Pierce will have his opportunities alongside Rex Burkhead. The 22-year-old has impressed the coaching staff in training camp, but he'll need to improve as a blocker in order to see more time on the field. On upside alone, Pierce is probably the most attractive fantasy back in Houston, although he'll likely be passed up in standard 12-team leagues to begin the season.

    David Bell Aug 7 2:00pm ET
    David Bell

    Cleveland Browns rookie third-round wide receiver David Bell (foot), who returned from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Saturday, won't be ruled out from playing in the team's preseason opener next Friday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "He's really intelligent," head coach Kevin Stefanski said of Bell. "He had a nice spring for us, moved him around in our formation and he picked it up pretty quickly. So we're excited about getting him back out here. Like anything, I want him to catch up real fast, and I know he does too. So he's excited to be back out here." Amari Cooper is Cleveland's clear No. 1 receiver, but Bell has an opportunity for a big role in his first NFL season. The 21-year-old will be catching passes from quarterback Jacoby Brissett for at least the first six games of the year, though, putting him off the fantasy radar in most standard-sized leagues to begin 2022.

    Kadarius Toney Aug 7 1:50pm ET
    Kadarius Toney

    New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney (knee) was held out of 11-on-11 work in training camp practice on Sunday for the third time in nine practices while coming off an offseason knee procedure. Toney probably has the highest fantasy ceiling of all of New York's receivers in just his second NFL season, but he was limited to just 10 games in his rookie season in 2021 due to knee issues, finishing with 39 receptions on 57 targets for 420 yards and no touchdowns. The 23-year-old's knee injury is something to keep a close eye on, but if he's healthy, he could make some real noise in new head coach Brian Daboll's offense. For now, fantasy managers should consider Toney a WR4/5 with upside in 2022.

    Nate Gerry Aug 7 1:40pm ET
    Nate Gerry

    The Washington Commanders signed free-agent linebacker Nate Gerry to an undisclosed deal on Sunday, according to a source. The former Philadelphia Eagles starter spent time last year with the San Francisco 49ers but didn't play in a regular season game. Gerry was originally a fifth-round selection by the Eagles in 2017 out of the University of Nebraska. The 27-year-old has recorded 163 tackles (101 solo), eight tackles for loss, seven QB hits, 3.5 sacks, three interceptions (one for a touchdown), 10 passes defensed and a fumble recovery in his four NFL seasons with Philadelphia. Gerry will merely be trying to latch on with Washington this year as depth at the linebacker position.

    Reggie Gilliam Aug 7 1:30pm ET
    Reggie Gilliam

    The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent fullback Reggie Gilliam to a two-year contract extension worth up to $5.2 million on Sunday. The former undrafted free agent was set to be a restricted free agent in 2023. Gilliam isn't worth looking into in fantasy, but he's been a nice real-life player for Buffalo in the last two seasons. The 24-year-old has seen 230 snaps on offense and 499 snaps on special teams in his two NFL seasons, producing just three carries for three yards while catching five of his seven targets for 39 yards and one touchdown in 30 games (five starts).

    Daniel Jones Aug 7 1:20pm ET
    Daniel Jones

    New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said, "I anticipate all of our guys playing Thursday" in the team's preseason opener against the New England Patriots next week. Hopefully for the Giants sake, none of their starters suffer significant injuries after their wide receiver corps was decimated by injuries in 2021. Quarterback Daniel Jones also played in only 11 games in his third NFL season due to a pretty serious neck injury. Running back Saquon Barkley hasn't played a full season since his rookie year in 2018, but he has so far looked outstanding in training camp this summer. If New York's offense can stay relatively healthy in 2022, most of their offensive weapons could have resurgent seasons for fantasy managers.

    Kareem Hunt Aug 7 1:10pm ET
    Kareem Hunt

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt, who is seeking a new contract as he heads into the final year of his current two-year, $13.25 million deal, has requested a trade. However, the Browns have already told him they won't trade him. Hunt hasn't taken part in team drills at training camp in the last two days as he "holds in" for a new deal. The 27-year-old only played in eight games last year due to an injury, but he rushed for 841 yards and six touchdowns on 198 carries and caught 38 passes for 304 yards and five more scores in 2020. Hunt doesn't have much leverage as he asks for a new deal while also taking part in individual drills this summer. If he stays in Cleveland for the 2022 season, he'll be an RB3/flex option with more upside in PPR leagues while working behind Nick Chubb.
