D Lock (DEN)

Drew Lock agrees to terms with Broncos
With the current structure set up for rookie contracts, lengthy holdouts are more of a rarity, so it was expected all along that the Broncos and Lock would agree to a deal sooner rather than later. As it turns out, they agreed to a deal on the day the team reports to camp. Lock is expected to be the backup to starter Joe Flacco in 2019, but he is a high draft pick that the team is surely hoping will take that job before too long.

Fantasy Spin:
Rookie quarterback Drew Lock has agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos on the day that the team reports to training camp, according to ProFootballTalk.

D Guice (WAS)

Derrius Guice downplays injury
Guice reportedly was on track for the start of training camp before the injury news developed. Guice tweeted out Friday night, "I don't listen to the noise, I know what's going on with me." It is entirely possible that Guice could be back for training camp. Amid health concerns, Guice faces tough competition for playing time in a backfield that also has Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson. We will know more on Guice's availability as training camp draws closer.

Fantasy Spin:
Derrius Guice who injured his hamstring while rehabbing, downplayed the injury and stated there's "no reason" for concern.

B Berrios (NEP)

Braxton Berrios could secure roster spot
Berrios, a sixth round pick in 2018, is in good health after spending his entire rookie season on the injured reserve. He will need his strong May and June to carry over into training camp, if he hopes to land a roster spot with the team. His odds will largely remain on the health of Demaryius Thomas and the suspension status of Josh Gordon. According to Reiss, Berrios would be in a Danny Amendola-type role as a slot receiver while also working as a return specialist.

Fantasy Spin:
Braxton Berrios who was stashed on injured reserve as a rookie, has looked good at spring practices in hopes to landing a roster spot as part of the Patriots receiving corps.

R Jones II (TBB)

Ronald Jones adds 13 pounds of muscle this off-season
Jones played at 208 pounds last year and is now up to 221 as training camp approaches. Typically running backs perform better when they lose weight over the off-season but Jones was so bad in his rookie season that it's good to see him committed to a workout program. He has a chance to lead the Bucs in rushing this year but remains a high-risk fantasy pick.

Fantasy Spin:
Ronald Jones has added 13 pounds of muscle this off-season.

R Gould (SFO)

Robbie Gould, 49ers sign two-year contract
Gould and the Niners beat the deadline for players on the franchise tag to sign. The two-year deal is fully guaranteed and could wind up being four years if San Francisco picks up the option. He'll certainly be a worthwhile fantasy option once again this year.

Fantasy Spin:
The 49ers and Robbie Gould have agreed to a two-year, $10.5 million contract.

E Elliott (DAL)

Ezekiel Elliott reportedly the 'target of extortion'
The full statement can be viewed in the attached link. The bottom line here is that Elliott has already met with Roger Goodell and has been cleared of any violations for his off-season incident in Las Vegas. Fantasy players can feel safe drafting him with a first-round pick this year.

Fantasy Spin:
The attorneys of Ezekiel Elliott released a statement saying their client has been the "target of extortion".

D Guice (WAS)

Derrius Guice tweaks hamstring, may miss training camp
It's bad news for Guice, who missed all of 2018 with a torn ACL as a rookie and was coming along according to schedule in his rehab. An explosive talent coming out of LSU, Guice has yet to play a snap in the NFL and is in danger of missing even more time in 2019. Even if he's ready to go for the start of the season, he's a risky fantasy proposition.

Fantasy Spin:
Derrius Guice has tweaked his hamstring and may miss the Redskins’ training camp.
07:13 PM

Chris Herndon slapped with four-game suspension
The suspension stems from a driving while intoxicated charge from June, 2018 which Herndon plead guilty to last January. The suspension for this type of incident is usually two games, but it can be up to four with the presence of aggravating circumstances. He had a promising rookie season, finishing with 502 yards and four TDs and was expected to take another step forward in his second year. The other TEs on the roster are Eric Tomlinson, Daniel Brown, and 2019 4th-Round rookie Trevon Wesco. It's unclear who will handle the majority of tight end work in Herndon's absence, but none of the three figure to be fantasy relevant.

Fantasy Spin:
Chris Herndon has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

D Johnson (CLE)

Duke Johnson could land in Tampa Bay
Johnson switched agents in hoping to get a deal done quicker, as he clearly wants out of Cleveland. He previously stated his desire to play elsewhere is motivated by the fact the Browns tried to originally deal him back in February. He's entering the first of his three-year, $15.6 million dollar contract, including a $5 million dollars in bonuses the Browns have already paid for. The Buccaneers are rumored to be a top suitor, as they are one of the few teams who are in need of a pass catching specialist. This would be an ideal situation and certainly boost his fantasy value for 2019. Look for Johnson to be involved in many trade rumors in the upcoming weeks leading into the preseason.

Fantasy Spin:
Duke Johnson signed Thursday with agent Drew Rosenhaus, hoping his new representative can facilitate a trade. The Buccaneers are rumored to be a possible destination.

M Gordon (LAC)

Melvin Gordon reportedly to demand trade unless he receives a new contract
While it was known that Gordon was looking for a new contract, this is the first report of him potentially sitting out training camp and demanding a trade. He currently has a $5.6 million salary in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, and understandably wants a raise and some long-term security. If Gordon misses any time, Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson could see opportunities in the Los Angeles backfield.

Fantasy Spin:
Running back Melvin Gordon has informed the Chargers that unless he receives a new contract, he will not report to training camp and he will demand a trade, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter.

J Garoppolo (SFO)

Jimmy Garoppolo "good to go" for training camp
There have been many reports of this being the year that Garoppolo has to prove his worth and with a full bill of health, there should be nothing holding him back. He's currently the QB20 in ADP and could return far more than his cost after the 49ers added more offensive weapons this offseason.

Fantasy Spin:
The 49ers quarterback spoke to media and said "I’m good to go. Finally," He's not expected to be limited at the start of training camp.

J Jacobs (OAK)

Josh Jacobs, Raiders wind up agreeing to contract
This is notable because there was a chance Jacobs was going to miss the start of training camp if he and his team couldn't come to terms soon enough. That is obviously no longer the case, however, so early drafters should have no fear when selecting Jacobs as a likely three-down back in fantasy.

Fantasy Spin:
Rookie running back Josh Jacobs and the Oakland Raiders have agreed to a four-year contract.

D Williams (KCC)

Damien Williams named starting RB by Reid
In a recent statement, Reid gave a vote of confidence to Damien Williams as the Chiefs' starting RB. "We're asking him to be the full-time starter for the year," Reid said, adding, "He's earned the right to be that guy." Reid's comments come a little more than a month after Chiefs' offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy expressed the same sentiment regarding Williams. The confirmation by the head coach is welcome news to fantasy players, as rumors of a Williams-Carlos Hyde timeshare have been circulating in recent weeks. Williams excelled for Kansas City last season as a dual-threat back with dangerous skills as a receiver out of the backfield. If he can secure a lion's share of the running back touches in 2019, an RB1 finish wouldn't be an unreasonable expectation.

Fantasy Spin:
Head coach Andy Reid has named Damien Williams as the Chiefs’ starting RB for the 2019 season.

C Newton (CAR)

Cam Newton (shoulder) to be full-go for training camp
Newton underwent a clean-up procedure on his shoulder back in January. It wasn't considered too serious but the Panthers wanted to be careful with his rehab this off-season. It sounds as if everything has gone according to plan. Newton can be safely drafted as an upside QB1 in fantasy right now.

Fantasy Spin:
Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer writes Cam Newton (shoulder) is expected to be a full-go for Panthers training camp.
