D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) unlikely to be ready for Texans' training camp
Houston Texans running back D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is not expected to be ready to participate at the start of training camp in late-July.
Foreman is still recovering from surgery on a torn Achilles Tendon he suffered in November 2017. He is expected to compete with Lamar Miller for touches in the Texans' backfield but does not appear to be on track for full participation when training camp starts. Tyler Ervin and Alfred blue will see extra work as long as Foreman is limited.
Our models project Foreman for 142 touches (19.8 catches), 626.9 total yards, and 4.1 touchdowns in 2018.
Eric Ebron standing out for Colts during offseason work
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron "has been among the more impressive Colts" this offseason, writes Stephen Holder of the Indy Star.
Ebron has lined up everywhere except the backfield for the Colts this offseason, and both his intelligence and versatility have received praise from new head coach Frank Reich, so the 2014 first-rounder may be able to find a consistent role in the offense. Ebron signed a 2-year deal with the Colts in March.
numberFire's models currently project Ebron to catch 33.4 passes (54.6 targets) for 340.5 yards and 3.75 touchdowns in 2018.
D.J. Moore 'has looked the part' for Panthers
Carolina Panthers first-round wide receiver D.J. Moore "has looked the part" this offseason, writes Albert Breer of Monday Morning Quarterback.
This comes after in-house team writer Max Henson said last week that Moore is "more than ready to contribute," so it sounds like the first receiver taken in April's draft will be ready to make an impact for the Panthers right away.
numberFire's early models project Moore to catch 44.0 passes (72.5 targets) for 556.8 yards and 3.26 touchdowns during his rookie campaign.
Mike McCarthy: Packers using committee approach in backfield
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team will have a "running back by committee."
That committee will consist of Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams, and Aaron Jones. However, McCarthy did hedge on his commitment, conceding that the offense can "adjust" if "one of them would emerge as that full-time guy." Until then, the Packers' backfield figures to be a headache for fantasy owners.
Montgomery (RB38), Williams (RB41), and Jones (RB43) are all within six spots of each other in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings.
Colts' Andrew Luck says 'pain is gone' in shoulder
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said the "pain is gone" in his surgically-repaired shoulder.
“The pain is gone, and it’s going to stay that way,” Luck said to reporters at minicamp. “My body doesn’t revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask." Albert Breer of Monday Morning Quarterback says the Colts will monitor Luck's reps in training camp as they ease him back into things, but it sounds like the 28-year-old quarterback has a solid chance of being ready for Week 1.
numberFire's early season models have Luck ranked as the QB13 for 2018, and we project him to throw for 3,933.1 yards with 27.75 touchdowns and 16.0 interceptions, as well as 279.5 rushing yards and 2.31 scores on the ground.
Zay Jones has to prove his worth in Bills' offense
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones will have to "earn his way," general manager Brandon Beane said during an interview with WGR 550 Buffalo.
"He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line," said Beane. "He’ll have to earn his way." Jones sat out OTAs while recovering from knee surgery, so the 2017 second-round pick still hasn't worked with the Bills' new quarterbacks, free agent A.J. McCarron and 7th overall pick Josh Allen. There isn't a lot of competition at wideout for Jones on the roster, but that was also the case last year and he mustered just 27 catches on 74 targets in 15 games.
numberFire's early models project Jones for 498.7 receiving yards and 2.16 touchdowns on 36.6 catches (82.6 targets) in 2018. He's the WR77 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
