by KFFL Staff on July 10, 2013 @ 13:56:57 PDT



QB | Ryan Tannehill | Miami Dolphins | Fantasy
Miami Dolphins players have raved about QB Ryan Tannehill's work during offseason practices. The consensus seems to be that Tannehill has been more instinctive, less mechanical, and less robotic in his reads.

QB | Nick Foles | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy
If Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly believes in Nick Foles and the long-term potential of Matt Barkley, Michael Vick could be cut.

QB | Sam Bradford | St. Louis Rams | Fantasy
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford improved dramatically in his red-zone production as 2012 went on. In the first eight games last year, he completed just 43.3 percent of his inside-the-20 attempts with four touchdowns and two interceptions, for a 62.5 passer rating. After the team reworked the club's red-zone approach, Bradford completed 67 percent of his tosses in the red zone, logging nine touchdowns and suffering just one interception, good for a rating of 101.8.


FB | Vonta Leach | Free Agent | Free Agents
The New York Giants are still interested in signing free-agent FB Vonta Leach (Ravens), and Leach has not dropped the Giants as a possible destination.

Wide Receiver

WR | Rishard Matthews | Miami Dolphins | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has been pleased with the play of WR Rishard Matthews during offseason workouts. Matthews and WR Armon Binns are believed to be heavy favorites for the No. 4 and 5 wide receiver jobs heading into training camp and the preseason.

WR | Julian Edelman | New England Patriots | Injury, Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman is the team's best bet to line up as the No. 2 wide receiver in Week 1, according to writer Mike Reiss. The receiver missed a chunk of offseason activities because he was rehabbing from a foot injury, but Reiss believes Edelman's biggest advantages are the trust he has earned from QB Tom Brady and his knowledge of the offense. Reiss believes that Edelman should quickly ascend the depth chart once training camp begins, as long as he's healthy.

WR | DeSean Jackson | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury, Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson are considered locks to make the team. One or two more spots will be filled by Riley Cooper, Arrelious Benn, Ifeanyi momah, B.J. Cunningham and Russell Shepard.

Tight End

TE | Rob Gronkowski | New England Patriots | Injury, Fantasy
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) has been rehabbing from back surgery at the team's facility, but the team does not know if Gronkowski will be ready for the start of the regular season. He is concentrating on stretching and improving his core strength at this point. Gronkowski is expected to being training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

TE | Aaron Hernandez | Free Agent | Free Agents, Fantasy
A police document cites a witness, who cites yet another witness, that claims free-agent TE Aaron Hernandez (Patriots) confessed to firing shots that killed Odin Lloyd. Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace are believed to have been with Hernandez when Lloyd was killed. Wallace reportedly told Ortiz that Hernandez said he fired at Lloyd.

TE | Rob Housler | Arizona Cardinals | Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals TE Rob Housler could have a big role in the offense this year and ranks as a breakout candidate. Head coach Bruce Arians said he saw Housler as a big receiver, potentially as opposed to a tight end, when he came out of college.

Offensive Tackle

OT | Jonathan Martin | Miami Dolphins | Depth Chart Tidbit
The Miami Dolphins are confident in OT Jonathan Martin's ability to play left tackle. He is bigger and stronger than a year ago, he wants to play on the left side, and he's smart and makes adjustments so that he's not beaten by the same move twice.

Defensive Line

DL | Chris Clemons | Seattle Seahawks | Injury
Seattle Seahawks DE Chris Clemons (knee) is confident that he will be ready for the start of the regular season even though he underwent surgery in January to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

DL | Ndamukong Suh | Detroit Lions | Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy
Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh could be next in line for a contract extension after the team completed deals for QB Matthew Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson.


LB | Bruce Irvin | Seattle Seahawks | Depth Chart Tidbit
