Sammy Watkins Moving “All Over the Place,” Refining Craft Under Andy Reid

Throughout OTAs Sammy Watkins reportedly moved “all over the place,” made dazzling plays, and refined his craft under Andy Reid. In sum, he fits in KC seamlessly, especially considering his blazing speed and excellent ball-tracking skills will be married to Patrick Mahomes’ cannon arm. The two have reportedly been clicking, meaning Watkins may deserve more […]

T.Y. Hilton Fitting Frank Reich’s Scheme Perfectly, Adding Dangerous Verticality

Colts HC Frank Reich and OC Nick Sirianni have reportedly been thrilled with how well T.Y. Hilton has fit into their “quicker-strike” offense thus far.  The star wideout is doing his part, reportedly “buying all in” and “giving his all,” while both coaches add more deep-ball concepts this “West Coast” attack. My earlier worries about Hilton’s […]

Jay Ajayi “definitely that No.1 guy” entering camp, more volume coming

With a full offseason with the Eagles under his belt, Jay Ajayi is “definitely going into camp as the No. 1 guy,” according to HC Doug Pederson. RBs coach Duce Staley has expressed similar sentiment, noting, “Jay is excited about being able to go out there and dominate and being able to be that guy.” […]

Allen Hurns the “Clear-Cut” No. 1 WR in Widely-Open Dallas Passing Game

249 targets — over 50% of Dallas’ 2017 total — are up for grabs after team-leaders Dez Bryant (132), Jason Witten (87), as well as Brice Butler (23) and Ryan Switzer (7) all departed. Based on early OTAs, newcomer and former Jags WR Allen Hurns is reportedly the early favorite to inherit the lion’s share of […]

Tyrod Taylor Distancing Self from Baker Mayfield, Regains Late-Round QB1 Appeal

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield “did not look ready to compete” with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns’ starting quarterback job at OTAs and minicamp. Taylor is also reportedly meshing well with his new teammates, being labeled by OC Todd Haley as the “clear leader of this team.” Taylor […]

Rex Burkhead Favorite for Goal-Line Work in TD-Generating Offense

According to ESPN Beat Writer Mike Reiss, Rex Burkhead is the “early favorite” to emerge as New England’s goalline back. With the Patriots scoring 16 Rush TDs in 2017 (6th in league) and 19 in 2016 (5th), while scoring the 2nd most total backfield fantasy points in back-to-back seasons, this job carries enormous weight. Despite […]

Deshaun Watson looking healthy, to “play the same way as before”

Despite coming off a torn ACL, Deshaun Watson is looking close to 100% healthy and has no plans to change his style of play in 2018 — and the Texans won’t try to reign him in. This is huge news, as Watson should be deployed in the same manner that made him a bonafide “cheatcode” […]

Marlon Mack Set for Clearer Role Amidst Robert Turbin’s Four-Game Suspension, Still RBBC

Robert Turbin has been suspended four-games for PEDs, removing one of many mouths to feed in this Colts’ backfield. Marlon Mack’s stranglehold on early-down work, and his chance to distance himself from the pack, seems far stronger now; however, the backfield is expected to remain a committee under Frank Reich.  Though Mack is incredibly explosive […]

Tarik Cohen “Lining Up Everywhere… Learning Every Position” in Bears’ OTAs

Tarik Cohen may have gone criminally underutilized under John Fox last season, but the opposite appears to be true for his 2018 fortunes. His “Usage” Score is set to skyrocket under the creative and aggressive Matt Nagy, who reportedly lined Cohen up all over the field during OTAs, while the shifty, explosive tailback has spent […]
