R.J. McIntosh signs rookie deal; will open camp on NFI
McIntosh did not participate in any of the team's spring drills and was diagnosed with a thyroid condition at the Scouting Combine. It is unknown whether that condition is related to his placement onto the NFI list. In three seasons at the University of Miami (FL), McIntosh recorded 5.5 sacks in 29 games.

Fantasy Spin:

S Barkley (NYG)

Saquon Barkley inks rookie deal with Giants
Now signed, sealed, and delivered, Barkley's three-down skill set is going to set him up to make an immediate impact as both an explosive runner and dynamic receiver. Dave Gettleman didn't invest the second pick on a running back to be a part-time player. Barkley is an intriguing talent who should command 300 touches as a rookie, making him worthy of first-round consideration in any format.

Fantasy Spin:
The New York Giants have signed No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley to a four-year $31.2 million dollar contract that is fully guaranteed. Barkley receives $20.6 million in the form of a signing bonus and the deal will include the standard fifth-year option.

Lamar Jackson improving quickly
Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg stated, "He's done an outstanding job up to date. He's way ahead of the curve now."

He may have to wait a season behind incumbent quarterback Joe Flacco but Jackson has tons of potential.

Fantasy Spin:
Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson is showing great improvement in camp. He has been operating as the team's second-string quarterback behind veteran Joe Flacco.

J Flacco (BAL)

Joe Flacco moving better in camp
Flacco was coming off back surgery in 2017 and is now over a year removed from the procedure. According to Mornhinweg, "It looks like he's moving and grooving better than he has in several years."

Will Xavier Woods win free safety job?
The Cowboys started a youth movement in the defensive backfield during the offseason, and the Thomas trade chatter will continue to be a major storyline as the team enters camp. Woods, 22, had 33 solo tackles and one pick in 2017. The second-year pro spent the entire offseason as the first-team defense starting free safety. Bringing Thomas over from Seattle in a trade would reunite the star safety with former Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richards, who is now coaching the Cowboys' defensive backs.

Fantasy Spin:
The Dallas Morning News asks if free safety Xavier Woods will win the free safety job or if the team will trade for Earl Thomas.

Versatility of Michael Bennett offers Eagles line flexibility
The flexibility could allow the Eagles to have the team's four best defensive lineman on the field if Bennett were to slide inside. Bennett playing next to Fletcher Cox would allow defensive ends Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham to go nuts at defensive end. The Eagles will rotate the defensive line and may well have a stronger group compared to last year on the defensive line.

Fantasy Spin:
Bennett, acquired in a March trade with the Seattle Seahawks along with a seventh-round pick for wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick, brings ability to play defensive tackle as well as defensive end.
04:10 PM

Fletcher Cox expected to anchor defensive line again
This is the highest of compliments to the star defensive tackle's ability. The article wastes no time informing readers there is nothing to see here. Cox had 26 total tackles, including 15 solo, 5.5 sacks and one forced fumble as one of the key player's on the Eagles championship defense. Back to business as usual.

Fantasy Spin:
Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is a footnote in the beginning of NBC Sports Philadelphia's defensive line preview.

Armani Watts sees first-team reps in minicamp
Watts would likely need an injury to Eric Berry or Leon McQuay in front of him to find meaningful early-season snaps. However, given his college pedigree, Watts has a chance to carve out a defensive role in the upcoming season. He has the talent to be an every-down player given the oppotunity. With the whole Kansas City defense looking completely different from a year ago, Watts could be an early name to watch.

Fantasy Spin:
Rookie safety Armani Watts has reportedly been taking first-team reps in early offseason workouts. Watts has been the go to defensive back off the sidelines when an additional body has been needed in team drills.

K Grugier-Hill (PHI)

Kamu Grugier-Hill predicted to win weakside linebacker job
The position battle on the Eagles defense is open after the team released veteran linebacker Mychal Kendricks in the offseason.

Fantasy Spin:

E Swoope (IND)

Erik Swoope will be coming into camp healthy
Swoope missed the majority of the Colts' offseason program with an undisclosed injury. The good news is he healthy but unfortunately, he will be behind Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron on the depth chart and will not provide much fantasy value.

Fantasy Spin:
General manager Chris Ballard indicated that Erik Swoope (undisclosed) is healthy in advance of training camp, Dave Griffiths of CBS 4 Indianapolis reports.
06:49 PM
A Luck (IND)

Andrew Luck 'good to go' for training camp
Ballard also mentioned that Luck will have no limitations when he's practicing, but he won't throw for seven days straight. That limitation aside, this is outstanding news for Luck and for all Colts skill players, especially T.Y. Hilton. Expect Luck's ADP to immediately rise, and so fantasy owners will need to make a move earlier than planned in drafts if they expect to land him.

Fantasy Spin:
Colts GM Chris Ballard told reporters today that Andrew Luck is "good to go" for training camp.
06:42 PM

Deyshawn Bond unlikely to begin camp on PUP list
