Green Bay's Geronimo Allison focusing on slot position
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is prepared to play inside after logging 11.2% of 2018's snaps in the slot.
Allison will primarily play this upcoming season in the slot position after playing mostly outside in 2018. "I like it. Coming in, I've always been that utility guy, that versatile guy to kind of move around. I'm loving it," said Allison to the media.
For the 2019-2020 season, expect the 25-year old to potentially fill in as the Packers' second receiver behind Davante Adams. Our models project Allison to produce 49.7 receptions for 640.6 yards and 4.1 touchdowns on 79.1 targets.
Rams' Todd Gurley trying to lose weight
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley wants to play around 218 pounds this season, reports NFL.com's Steve Wyche.
Gurley typically weighs in around 224 pounds. Wyche said the team doesn't expect Gurley's production to diminish, but that they do intend to ease off his workload. Turning just 25 at the beginning of next month, Gurley's knee problems have already become a large concern.
numberFire's models believe Gurley will record 946.9 rushing yards, 416.6 receiving yards, and 10.85 touchdowns this season. He sits at RB13 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
Jaguars' Marqise Lee (knee) beginning camp on PUP list
The Jacksonville Jaguars placed wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) on the active/physically unable to perform (PUP) list ahead of training camp.
Lee tore his ACL in Week 2 last season but is expected to be ready to go, sometime during training camp. The veteran wideout's availability for Week 1 is still up in the air though. When healthy, Lee will be competing with Dede Westbrook for the top spot on the Jags' WR depth chart.
Our models project Lee for 46.3 catches, 593.6 yards, and 3.2 touchdowns on 80.7 targets in 2019.
Tevin Coleman expected to be 49ers' lead back
San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman is expected to be the "de facto" lead runner, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.
Barrows writes that Coleman "knows Kyle Shanahan’s offense, and is dangerous as both a runner and pass catcher," adding that the fifth-year back will be the "most popular among fantasy football geeks." Coleman may lead the backfield in touches, but Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon should still get their fair share.
numberFire's models expect Coleman to rush 164.9 times for 753.4 yards and 5.25 touchdowns, with 31.2 receptions for 273.5 yards and 1.28 touchdowns. He is the RB29 in our preseason fantasy rankings. McKinnon is the RB49 and Breida is the RB52.
Travis Kelce (ankle) cleared for training camp by the Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (ankle) has been cleared to participate in training camp.
Kelce sat out all offseason activities as he recovered from ankle surgery, but is ready to go. He is expected to report early and get in some extra work before training camp officially begins on Friday.
Our models project Kelce for 100.8 catches, 1,283.8 yards, and 11.0 touchdowns on 135.8 targets this season.
Cowboys parting ways with Allen Hurns
The Dallas Cowboys are releasing wide receiver Allen Hurns.
Hurns spent just one season with the Cowboys, which came to an end when he suffered a horrific leg injury in the first quarter of the team's playoff victory over the Seattle Seahawks. However, the receiver says he's now healthy and would have been ready for the start of training camp. Michael Gallup and Randal Cobb figure to compete for second in the pecking order behind Amari Cooper in Dallas.
Hurns caught 20 passes (35 targets) for 295 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2018.
