L Whitehead (DAL)

Lucky Whitehead cut by Cowboys
Just hours after the news of Whitehead's June arrest blossomed through the media, Dallas cut their kick return ace. Cowboys' brass is clearly trying to send a message to their locker room in the wake of Whitehead's release. This has been the second consecutive offseason in which multiple Cowboys' players that include Ezekiel Elliott and David Irving were in and out of the headlines for off the field issues.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Lucky Whitehead on Monday.

G Bernard (CIN)

Giovani Bernard expected to be ready for camp
Although Bernard is eight months removed from ACL surgery, he is "surprisingly" expected to be cleared for the start of training camp. Despite the addition of Joe Mixon in the second round of April's draft, Bernard should still maintain his role in the offense as the Bengals' third down back/ primary receiver out of the backfield. Jeremy Hill will likely be the rusher whose playing time is affected by Mixon's presence on early downs.

Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Jim Owczarski is reporting running back Giovani Bernard (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

T Eifert (CIN)

Tyler Eifert expected to be ready for training camp
Eifert, who underwent back surgery during the early portion of the offseason and missed all of the team's offseason workouts, is expected to be a full go for the start of training camp. Eifert is no stranger to injury. Since his rookie year in 2013, he's missed 27 of a possible 64 career games. However, although he is quite effective in the red zone while on the field -- he's caught 20 career touchdowns -- his injury history is a concern for a player who holds a TE6 ADP.

Fantasy Spin:
Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Jim Owczarski is reporting that "all indications" are that tight end Tyler Eifert (back) will be good to go for the start of training camp.

J Matthews (PHI)

Jordan Matthews will be limited to begin camp
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson told the media that although Matthews is still bothered by his lingering knee tendinitis, he's "not concerned [that] it will stretch into the regular season." Despite the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to the roster this offseason, Matthews is still expected to have a significant role in the passing game. Currently, he is slated to open the 2017 season as the team's WR2.

Fantasy Spin:
Philadelphia Eagles beat writer Zach Berman is reporting wide receiver Jordan Matthews (knee) will be limited at the start of training camp as he is still experiencing knee tendinitis.

L Whitehead (DAL)

Lucky Whitehead charged with a misdemeanor in June
Rapoport later added that Whitehead failed to appear to court for the matter on July 6. However, it is currently uncertain about whether or not he will face disciplinary action from the NFL. Whitehead's off the field incident is yet another blemish on the Cowboys' locker room's character issues that have plagued the franchise in recent memory.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead was arrested and charged with misdemeanor petty larceny in Virginia back in June 2017.
09:14 PM
T Kelce (KCC)

Travis Kelce good to go for camp
Kelce, who underwent offseason shoulder surgery early in the offseason, is a full-go for the start of training camp. Coming off of a career year in 2016 in which he accumulated an 85-1,125-4 stat line, which translates to 138.0 fantasy points -- he was the No. 1 scoring tight end in standard formats -- Kelce should be one of the top TEs targeted in upcoming fantasy drafts. However, at his TE2 ADP, I'd pass on Kelce that early in drafts and target players like Hunter Henry and Zach Ertz, who present greater value in the mid-rounds.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (shoulder) is medically cleared for training camp.

W Snead (NOS)

Willie Snead signs RFA tender
Snead's one-year deal is worth $615k of fully guaranteed money. The 24-year-old wideout, who is coming off of another solid year in 2016 producing a 72-895-4 stat line, is primed to enter the upcoming season as the Saints' WR2. At his WR37 ADP, he could be one of the steals of fantasy drafts in 2017.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Field Yates is reporting New Orleans Saints wide receiver Willie Snead has signed his ERFA tender.

D Johnson (CLE)

Duke Johnson may be top candidate for Cleveland's slot receiver job
Johnson has 177 carries and 114 receptions over his first two seasons in the NFL. Cabot expects Johnson to surpass his average of 57 receptions this season. Cabot also reported that it remained to be seen how Johnson's carry numbers would be impacted. This would indicate that Johnson may be adopting more of a Ty Montgomery or Tyreek Hill type of role as a utility player. Johnson was effective at running the ball over his first two seasons, averaging 4.9 yards per carry, so it's hard to imagine that his carries will go away significantly, but this might put him in line for more touches overall, in line with my previous update. While it's hard to speculate too much before training camp starts (Wednesday for the Browns veterans), I'm definitely buying Johnson at his current ADP of 135.3 in Standard and 106.7 in PPR scoring, according to FantasyPros aggregated ADP data. I'm certainly willing to take his upside in the 12th round of Standard and the 9th round of PPR.

Fantasy Spin:
Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that Duke Johnson "is the leading candidate to replace Andrew Hawkins as the No. 1 slot receiver."

A Luck (IND)

Andrew Luck opens camp on PUP list
Holder is adding that although Luck is entering training camp on the PUP list, he did not suffer a setback and "will be ready" for the start of the 2017 regular season. Per Colts general manager Chris Ballard, Luck, who underwent offseason shoulder surgery, has begun his throwing program. However, he did not put a timetable on the franchise signal caller's full return to football activities. Luck could be activated from the PUP list at any time moving forward.

L Murray (MIN)

Latavius Murray opens camp on PUP list
Rapoport believes Murray is entering camp on the PUP list for "precautionary" reasons. Upon his return, he is expected to compete with Dalvin Cook for the role of the Vikings' RB1 job for the 2017 season. However, if Cook emerges on top, I'd fully expect Murray to assume the role of the team's short yardage/ goal line back.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's IanRapoport is reporting Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray (ankle) will open training camp on the active/ PUP list.

T Bridgewater (MIN)

Teddy Bridgewater starts camp on PUP list
At this point, fantasy owners should have all of their attention focused on Sam Bradford when it comes to Vikings quarterbacks. The Vikings staff have been very vague when discussing Bridgwater's injury situation. Rumors have gone around that it could take up until half the season until he can finally return. Owners who draft Bradford could stash away Bridgwater as a backup, but it is unlikely he will be a big fantasy contributor this season.

Fantasy Spin:
Vikings quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater is expected to start training camp on the PUP list. Bridgewater suffered a knee injury towards the end of pre-season last year that kept him out for the entire season and the spring. He was able to get some workouts in without a knee brace a few weeks ago but he is very limited. The timetable for his return is currently unknown.

S Watkins (BUF)

Sammy Watkins not yet '100 percent?'
Watkins, who is coming off of offseason foot surgery, is nearing "100 percent" as training camp approaches, after practicing in a limited capacity at OTAs. From a fantasy football perspective, the 24-year-old wideout is entering a contract year after the Bills declined to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. Watkins must prove to the team, plus, his fantasy owners, that he can remain healthy and productive moving forward before committing to him long-term. Currently, he holds a WR16 ADP and is falling in fantasy drafts, which is a bargain if he plays up to his capability. However, I'm treading lightly with Watkins entering 2017, unless he falls to somewhere in the back-end of the third round in 12 team leagues.

Fantasy Spin:
Buffalo Bills beat writer Jay Skurski is reporting wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) "should be close to 100 percent" at the start of training camp.
11:15 AM

Jalen Ramsey to open camp on the PUP list
Ramsey, who underwent a core muscle surgery earlier in the offseason, will enter camp on the PUP list. The second year corner is a key piece to a Jaguars' defense that began to turn the corner in 2016, finishing the year ranked sixth in the NFL in total defense. Barring a setback, Ramsey should be fine for Week 1.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Jalen Ramsey (groin) will open training camp on the active/ PUP list.

D Bryant (DAL)

Dez Bryant misses conditioning workout
The negative offseason headlines continue to brew in Dallas. This time, with Ezekiel Elliott facing a "short suspension," Bryant showed up three hours late to training camp and missed his conditioning run," citing a sinus infection and headaches as his reason for his tardiness. Coming off of a magical 14-2 season in 2016, the Cowboys enter 2017 as serious contenders for the Super Bowl. They must right the ship if they hope to achieve that feat.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant "missed his conditioning run" Friday.
