Chiefs believe Tyreek Hill could be suspended by the NFL next month
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is meeting with NFL investigators this week and could face a suspension for violating the league's code of conduct, despite avoiding criminal charges.
Hill is currently barred from team activities by the Chiefs but is expected to be reinstated in time for training camp. However, the NFL is likely to make a ruling on a possible suspension before camp starts. If Hill misses games this season, Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, and rookie Mecole Hardman are expected to benefit.
Our models project Hill for only 43.5 catches, 693.2 yards, and 5.7 touchdowns in 2019.
Washington's Trey Quinn primed for inside slot role
Washington Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn "has taken over the inside slot role" according to head coach Jay Gruden.
After Jamison Crowder's departure this off-season, Gruden is expecting Quinn to step up and produce in the slot role. "He’s confident, he’s quick, he’s got strong hands, he’s physical, and he’s tough," said Gruden during mini-camp. "Obviously, losing Crowder hurts, hurts quite a bit. But I'm ready to watch Trey Quinn jump in that slot role and dominate the position."
For the 2019 season, our models project Quinn to produce 35.4 receptions for 374.1 yards and 1.9 touchdowns.
Patriots' Josh Gordon remains indefinitely suspended
New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon's indefinite suspension has "no update" from the league, an NFL spokesman told Jeff Howe of The Athletic.
Howe specifically asked if there was a timeline for a review of the suspension, but the league didn't reveal anything. This comes right on the heels of news that Gordon has been working out with Tom Brady this offseason and the Patriots re-signed the receiver in April, so there appears to be some thinking around New England that he will play in 2019. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported in February that there was a "chance" Gordon could be cleared by training camp.
Gordon caught 40 passes on 69 targets for 720 yards and 3 touchdowns in 11 games for New England last season.
Packers pick up Michael Roberts
The Green Packers signed tight end Michael Roberts off waivers.
Roberts was released by the Detroit Lions last week after a trade to the New England Patriots was reverted due to a failed physical. The oft-injured 2017 fourth-round pick will compete for a roster spot behind Jimmy Graham and third-rounder Jace Sternberger.
Roberts has 13 career receptions (27 targets) for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Parris Campbell should see time as the Colts' third receiver
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell "should be in the mix for No. 3 wide receiver playing time/touches as a rookie" according to 1070 The Fan.
Campbell is expected to contribute as the Colts' third receiver during his rookie season despite playing behind starters T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. Expect the speedy wideout to play a major role this year despite the wealth of receiving options.
For the 2019 season, our models project Campbell to produce 38.6 receptions for 486.2 yards and 3.2 touchdowns.
Chargers' Mike Williams ready for 'expanded role' in 2019
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams expects to have an "expanded role" in the 2019 passing game.
With Tyrell Williams' departure this off-season, the 24-year old wideout is expecting to see more targets and playing time in 2019. “My role is going to expand with Tyrell leaving. I’m ready to make some plays this upcoming season,” said Williams. "I feel I’m going to get a lot more opportunities than I did last year. A lot more balls coming my way.”
For the 2019 season, our models project Williams to produce 55.5 receptions for 809.7 yards and 7.2 touchdowns. In 16 games last year, the Chargers' receiver hauled in 43 receptions for 664 yards and 10 touchdowns.
