J Smith (DAL)

Jaylon Smith 'should' be ready for OTAs
Smith, the 34th overall pick in last year's draft, appears to be on track to return for OTAs after missing his entire rookie season with a knee injury suffered while still playing for Notre Dame. Although he is still dealing with nerve damage in his surgically repaired knee, the standout linebacker is expected to make his pro debut this season, barring a setback.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones told the media linebacker Jaylon Smith (knee) "should" be ready to return to the field for OTAs.

T Gabriel (ATL)

Taylor Gabriel signs tender
Gabriel signed his RFA tender, which equates to a one-year deal worth about $2.8 million in 2017. He'll likely maintain his role as Atlanta's No. 3 receiver this season behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Gabriel is a rising star in fantasy who is worth a late-round flier in upcoming drafts.

Fantasy Spin:
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel signed his RFA tender Saturday.

T Lockett (SEA)

Tyler Lockett 'expects' to be ready for training camp
Lockett, who suffered a broken leg in Week 16 of last season, is expected to miss Seattle's offseason workouts in their entirety. However, he told the media that he fully "expects" to make his on-field return at the start of training camp in July. The 24-year-old wideout and return specialist will likely open the 2017 season as the No. 3 receiver on the Seahawks' depth chart behind Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin.

M Lynch (SEA)

Marshawn Lynch deadline to sign with Raiders appears set
It appears that the Raiders are using the NFL Draft as the deadline for the team to land Lynch. Although this could just be a smokescreen in order to speed things up, it wouldn't be a surprise if Oakland stands pat to their presumed deadline. They do have options. Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles and LeGarrette Blount are all available free agents and have similar skill sets to Lynch. I'd expect the Raiders to make a move for one of the aforementioned rushers if they ultimately cannot work things out with Lynch.

Fantasy Spin:
Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie told the media the deadline for the team to acquire running back Marshawn Lynch is the NFL Draft. “At some point, you would like to know," McKenzie said Friday. "Prior to the draft is that point."

C Newton (CAR)

Cam Newton 'on schedule' in his recovery
Newton underwent offseason shoulder surgery on March 30 and is "on schedule" in his recovery, per Gettleman. Although he will miss offseason workouts, the 27-year-old signal caller is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in late-July. Barring a setback, Newton is not in danger of missing any regular season action.

Fantasy Spin:
Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman told the media quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) is "on schedule" to be ready for the start of training camp in late-July.

C Thompson (WAS)

Chris Thompson signs tender
Thompson was retained by the Redskins Friday after the 26-year-old rusher signed his RFA tender. Thompson is coming off of a 2016 season in which he produced career-high numbers in all major statistical categories for a running back. Playing in all 16 games, Thompson received 68 carries for 356 yards and three touchdowns while putting up a 49-349-2 stat line as a receiver out of the backfield. With Rob Kelley slated as the starter for the upcoming season, Thompson will likely open the year as his primary backup.

Fantasy Spin:
Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson signed his RFA tender on Friday.

J White (NEP)

James White inks extension
White, who would have entered his walk-year in 2017, signed a three-year contract extension with the Patriots Tuesday tieing him to the club until 2021. The 25-year-old rusher is coming off of a career year in 2016 accumulating 166 yards on the ground on 39 carries and a 4.3 YPC average. However, he did the majority of his damage as a receiver out of the backfield, producing a 60-551-5 stat line. White's fantasy value for 2017 is a question mark despite his good fortunes from last season. Not only are the Patriots searching for a power back in case LeGarrette Blount doesn't re-sign, but they also signed Rex Burkhead, who has a similar skill-set to White's. Sprinkle Dion Lewis into the mix and New England has an extremely crowded backfield leading me to believe that they will continue to roll with the hot hand as they had for much of the 2016 campaign.

Fantasy Spin:
The New England Patriots and running back James White have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension on Tuesday.

M Stafford (DET)

Matthew Stafford's finger 'feels good'
Stafford also said his finger "feels good" and that he's been "throwing for a month and a half." The 29-year-old signal caller is not expected to be held back during offseason workouts and should be a full-go for July's training camp.

Fantasy Spin:
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (finger) told the media that he will not undergo surgery to repair his injured finger from last season.

D Carr (OAK)

Derek Carr a full-go for offseason workouts
As expected, Carr is a full-go for Oakland's offseason program that began Monday -- he underwent surgery in late-December to repair a broken fibula. Barring a setback, Carr will not be held back for the remainder of the offseason and is in no danger of missing the 2017 season opener.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Paul Gutierrez is reporting Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (leg) is participating in full in the team's offseason program. "I feel great," Carr said via ESPN. "I've been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything. So I'm ready to rock. I'm ready to do absolutely everything. I did everything my teammates did today. I'll do everything my teammates will do tomorrow."

Malcolm Butler signs tender
Butler finally signed his RFA Tuesday with the Patriots. However, there is no guarantee he will remain with the team for the upcoming season. Butler has been in the midst of trade rumors since March and the Saints may still be in the mix to acquire him. If Butler is indeed moved, expect the transaction to occur sooner rather than later with the NFL Draft approaching on April 27.

Fantasy Spin:
New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler has signed his RFA tender on Tuesday.

M Gillislee (BUF)

Mike Gillislee receives offer sheet from Patriots
Gillislee, who received an original round tender from the Bills in March which he has yet to sign, received an offer sheet from the Patriots Tuesday after visiting with the club last week. If Gillislee signs with New England, they will forfeit a fifth-round pick to the Bills in the upcoming NFL Draft. Gillislee's potential acquisition would likely take the Patriots out of the running back market leaving LeGarrette Blount on the outside looking in and in search of a new team for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New England Patriots have extended a two-year, $6.4 million RFA offer sheet to free agent running back Mike Gillislee on Tuesday.

T Eifert (CIN)

Tyler Eifert's training camp availability in question
Eifert is recovering from offseason back surgery and is "unsure" about his training camp availability. The fourth-year veteran is coming off of an injury-plagued 2016 campaign in which he only appeared in eight games and produced a 29-394-5 stat line. Injuries have irked Eifert throughout his career. The 26-year-old tight end missed 27 of a possible 64 games but is uber productive when is on the field, especially in the end zone, securing 20 touchdowns in his career. For the upcoming fantasy football campaign, Eifert should be viewed a middling TE1 who could produce elite TE1 numbers if his health remains intact, a feat that is extremely questionable due to his history.

Fantasy Spin:
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (back) told the media he "feels great" after undergoing offseason back surgery, but is uncertain about when he will be able to "fully participate" in offseason activities. When asked about his availability for training camp, Eifert replied: "I don't know. I'll have to see how I'm feeling and go from there."
12:15 PM
S Roberts (OAK)

Seth Roberts signs tender
Roberts is coming off back to back seasons of producing at least 32 receptions, 397 yards and five touchdowns to begin his career -- he scored five touchdowns in each season. The impending third-year wideout has shown promise as a deep, touchdown threat in Oakland but is stuck behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, one of the league's best receiving duos, on the Raiders' depth chart. Roberts is worth a late-round flier and a stash on the fantasy bench in case he breaks out or if an injury occurs to one of the players slated ahead of him on the depth chart.

Fantasy Spin:
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Seth Roberts signed his exclusive-rights tender on Monday.

Marcus Mariota attends first day of offseason program
Mariota, who is recovering from a broken fibula suffered in December, was present for the first day of Tennessee's offseason workouts on Monday. The impending third-year signal caller told the media he expects to begin running at full speed within the next two-to-three weeks. However, he remains uncertain on whether or not he'll be a full-go for the start of training camp in July. The Titans are expected to continue with the cautious approach with Mariota's recovery for the remainder of the offseason.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (leg) reported to the first day of the team's offseason program on Monday.

D Henry (TEN)

Derrick Henry a no-show on first day of offseason workouts
When asked about Henry's absence, Titans head coach Mike Mularkey did not appear too worried. "It's their choice," Mularkey said Monday. "Maybe I used to get disappointed. I have no control over it. It's their option. It's their choice. It's whatever they feel is best for them. I do know this - we've had coaches down at Tuscaloosa for the workout. I've seen some video of Derrick in the weight room. He's absolutely working out, so I know he's in great playing shape right now. I have no concerns about it, and won't." Henry, who is entering his second year in the NFL, is slated as DeMarco Murray's primary backup for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Spin:
The USA Today is reporting Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry did not attend the first day of the team's offseason program on Monday.
