T Montgomery (GBP)

Ty Montgomery ready to take the next step
Ty Montgomery looks jacked up, and ready to take the mantle as the lead back in Green Bay. Ty was already a thick, muscular player but now gaining the extra muscle mass could help in making him more of a three-down back in Green Bay. Combining with a proper offseason training with the running backs, rather than the wide receivers, expect Ty to take a big step this year in the Packers backfield.

Fantasy Spin:
Ty Montgomery has returned to OTAs four pounds heavier (listed as 220 pounds).

D Woodhead (BAL)

Danny Woodhead practices after ACL injury
Woodhead is returning to the field with no restrictions after a serious knee injury. He has had several months of recuperation and reportedly running routes for the past three months. He is a versatile player in the slot or out of the backfield.

Fantasy Spin:
Baltimore Ravens newly signed running back Danny Woodhead hit the practice field during the OTA's after recovering from an ACL injury in his right knee last season. Woodhead signed with the Ravens in March 2017 as an undrafted free agent. This nine year vet spent the last four years with San Diego with five starts in 37 games. He will be competing with running backs Terrance West, Javorius "Buck" Allen and Kenneth Dixon, who will be serving a four-game suspension in the regular season.

C Kaepernick (SFO)

Colin Kaepernick met with Seahawks, not expected to sign immediately
If Kap were to sign with the Seahawks, he wouldn't have any fantasy value unless Russell Wilson gets injured.

Fantasy Spin:
Colin Kaepernick and Austin Davis met with the Seahawks on Wednesdays and sources say "it's not expected any signing will happen immediately."

R Streater (SFO)

Rod Streater signs with Bills
Streater will join a Bills wide receiver depth chart full of question marks outside of Sammy Watkins and Zay Jones. The 29-year-old wideout, who only played in 20 games since 2014, will likely have to compete for a roster spot for the 2017 season. Despite the underwhelming core of talent surrounding him, Streater is no shoe-in to make the final cut.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Buffalo Bills have signed free agent wide receiver Rod Streater on Wednesday.

J Brown (ARI)

Jaron Brown a limited participant at OTAs
Brown, who tore his ACL in Week 7 of the 2016 season, is working his way back from injury. He participated in individual drills during Wednesday's OTAs session. Barring a setback, Brown will have a chance to compete with John Brown for the No. 3 wide receiver spot on the depth chart for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Spin:
Arizona Cardinals beat writer Kyle Odegard is reporting wide receiver Jaron Brown (knee) is a limited participant at OTAs on Wednesday.
05:12 PM
A Hawkins (CLE)

Andrew Hawkins signs with Patriots
The Patriots, who've added a boatload of offensive weapons this offseason, aren't finished yet. They signed Hawkins, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year deal Wednesday. With Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola, amongst others, already on the depth chart, Hawkins is not guaranteed to make the final roster come Week 1.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New England Patriots and free agent wide receiver Andrew Hawkins have agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

E Elliott (DAL)

Ezekiel Elliott suffers head injury, not practicing
It appears that Elliott was involved in a minor car accident Sunday night in which he sustained an apparent head injury. This is just another off the field issue added to Elliott's list since entering the NFL last offseason. Although his injury is said to be minor, Elliott's off the field incidents are beginning to pile up, which could eventually lead to a suspension or worse if he continues down this path.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys beat writer Nick Eatman is reporting running back Ezekiel Elliott did not practice Wednesday due to a head injury suffered in a minor car accident Sunday night.
02:00 PM
M Williams (SDC)

Mike Williams not participating in OTAs
In the wake of Williams' injury, Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn is " hopeful the rookie receiver can return to the field next week." Williams, who is currently slated to open the 2017 season as Los Angeles' No. 3 receiver, could take a step back in his development due to the missed time. Still, unless Williams is sidelined for an extended period, his spot on the depth chart should be safe.

Fantasy Spin:
Los Angeles Chargers beat writer Eric Williams is reporting wide receiver Mike Williams (back) is not participating in OTAs due to a back injury suffered during the first practice session.
01:51 PM
C Kaepernick (SFO)

Colin Kaepernick visiting with Seahawks
Kaepernick, along with "at least" one other signal caller, will visit with the Seahawks Wednesday. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo believes a deal "could come together" between the two sides sooner rather than later. If Kaepernick lands in Seattle, he'll back up starter Russell Wilson for the 2017 season, a vast upgrade from the troubled and inexperienced Trevone Boykin.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is visiting with the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday.
01:48 PM
M Jones (WAS)

Matt Jones not attending OTAs
Rapoport later added that Jones, who was a healthy scratch for most of the 2016 season -- he only appeared in seven games -- is "not a part of [the Redskins'] their plans" for 2017. Barring an unforeseen turn of events, expect Washington to move on from Jones prior to the start of the upcoming season. He could very well fall victim to veteran cuts in June.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones is not in attendance at OTAs.

C Hackenberg (NYJ)

Christian Hackenberg impressing Jets' staff
Hackenberg, who is entering his second year in the league, is currently slated as the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart. If the former 51st overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft continues to impress, he could finally see playing time and even start if the Jets are sliding out of playoff contention in 2017. Josh McCown is expected to open the year as the Jets' starter.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg is "pleasing" the coaching staff with the way he has "looked" this offseason. Schefter attributes Hackenberg's progress to the addition of Jeremy Bates to New York's staff.
12:36 PM
M Forte (NYJ)

Matt Forte, Bilal Powell to split carries in 2017?
Morton's remarks suggest that Bilal Powell and Matt Forte will split carries throughout the 2017 season. Although Forte opened the 2016 campaign as the starter, Powell garnered the bulk of the touches as the year progressed. I'd expect that trend to continue this year. Target Powell well ahead of Forte in fantasy football drafts, more so in the mid-rounds.

Fantasy Spin:
New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton told the media the team is planning on employing a "backfield by committee" approach to their ground game in 2017.
12:26 PM
T Siemian (DEN)

Trevor Siemian working with first-team offense
It's not too surprising that Siemian is running with the first-team offense at the start of OTAs. He was Denver's starting quarterback for most of the 2016 season, his second year in the league. Appearing in 14 games, the 25-year-old signal caller produced a 3,401-18-10 stat line and proved he could play through injury. While Paxton Lynch has upside for the future, he'll have to have an outstanding showing in training camp and the preseason to out-seat Siemian from the top spot on the depth chart. Expect Siemian to open the 2017 season as Denver's starting QB.

Fantasy Spin:
Denver Broncos beat writer Mike Klis is reporting quarterback Trevor Siemian is working with the first-team offense at OTAs.

J Charles (DEN)

Jamaal Charles could return for training camp
Charles, Denver's newest addition to their backfield, is still recovering from his knee injury that sidelined him for all but eight games in the past two seasons. Per Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, the 30-year-old running back will "rehab and get healthy through OTAs" while targeting a training camp return. If his health gets back on track, Charles will compete with C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker for the team's starting running back job for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Spin:
Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told the media that the timetable for running back Jamaal Charles (knee) to return to football activities is training camp.

T Bridgewater (MIN)

Teddy Bridgewater throwing at OTAs Tuesday
Although Bridgewater, who suffered a gruesome knee injury last preseason was practicing at OTAs Tuesday, his playing status for the upcoming season remains in question. Even if the 24-year-old signal caller miraculously recovers from his injury in time for the start of the 2017 campaign, he will enter the year as Sam Bradford's primary backup at best. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer had already named Bradford the Week 1 starter during the early portion of the offseason. From a fantasy football perspective, Bradford should be viewed in the mid-to-low end QB2 tier, while Bridgewater will likely open the year on the PUP list.

Fantasy Spin:
The official Twitter account of the Minnesota Vikings posted a video of injured quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) throwing at OTAs Tuesday.
