Mario Manningham - WR - New York Giants Posted 7/28/14 11:49pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Giants WR Mario Manningham (knee) said he is still not 100 percent confident in his surgically repaired knee. 'I'm working on it,' he said of overcoming that psychological hurdle. 'Every day I feel better. (I'm) going out and just trying to get back to where I was.'
Huddle Up:  Manningham should be able to lock up a roster spot with his old team if he can show some solid progress after a lost season (6 games, 9 catches) last year in San Fran.

Anthony Dixon - RB - Buffalo Bills Posted 7/28/14 11:49pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon was listed as the No. 3 back on the team's first official depth chart with RB Bryce Brown listed as the No. 4 back.
Huddle Up:  You'd think it would be just the opposite with all the glowing Brown reports coming out of Bills' camp so far, but we haven't even gotten to the Hall of Fame Game yet so no need to pay these early depth charts too much attention.

Odell Beckham Jr. - WR - New York Giants Posted 7/28/14 11:49pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. had tests on his injured hamstring Monday, July 28, and the results were negative, according to two sources briefed on the injury.
Huddle Up:  Good news for the rookie and the Giants, who aren't about to tempt the finicky hammy gods and rush the first-round pick back onto the field this early in camp.

Greg Little - WR - Oakland Raiders Posted 7/28/14 11:39pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Oakland Raiders WR Greg Little (hamstring) didn't finish practice Monday, July 28, as a result of a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up:  Not good news for the ex-Brown Little who is fighting to earn a roster spot with his new team.

John Brown - WR - Arizona Cardinals Posted 7/28/14 11:39pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown has impressed general manager Steve Keim during camp, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss. 'I can tell you so far we haven't been able to cover him,' Keim said Monday, July 28, per Weinfuss.
Huddle Up:  Even though it's still early -- 2-weeks-before-most-preseason- contests early -- go ahead and pencil in the third-round pick from FCS Pittsburg State on your deep-sleeper list as the Cards' WR depth chart is wide open behind starters Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.

Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos Posted 7/28/14 11:39pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas practiced with the team Monday, July 28 after missing seven workouts.
Huddle Up:  Condolences are in order but fantasy concern is not as D.T. had been in Georgia since last week following the death of his grandmother.

Clay Harbor - TE - Jacksonville Jaguars Posted 7/28/14 9:07pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Clay Harbor will miss some time with a strained calf, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.
Huddle Up:  Even when he gets healthy, Harbor will still be stuck behind starter Marcedes Lewis and has not had more than 25 catches, 292 yards or 2 TDs in a season.

Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns Posted 7/28/14 9:07pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has hired attorney Maurice Suh to help with the appeal of his impending suspension, according to a source. Suh helped Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman win the appeal of his suspension.
Huddle Up:  Gordon will try to tap some of Suh's legal magic as he attempts to shave whatever he can off his looming 1-year suspension.

Robert Meachem - WR - New Orleans Saints Posted 7/28/14 9:07pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (back) and OG Ben Grubbs (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, July 28, but head coach Sean Payton said both should return to the field in the next few days.
Huddle Up:  Meachem will need the extra work as he's batting speedy youngsters Kenny Stills and Brandin Cooks for No. 2 WR targets behind Marques Colston.

Jason Babin - DE - New York Jets Posted 7/28/14 8:59pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Jets DE Jason Babin will make $1.6 million this year that includes a $1.1 million base salary and a $500,000 roster bonus. He is expected to have a $1.35 million base salary in 2015 with an option bonus of $250,000.
Huddle Up:  Babin just turned 34 in May, and the Jets are counting on a late- career revival from the vet, who has recorded 14.5 sacks in the 2 seasons since he notched a career-high 18 QB takedowns in 2011.

De'Anthony Thomas - RB - Kansas City Chiefs Posted 7/28/14 8:59pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Kansas City Chiefs RB De'Anthony Thomas was compared to WR Devin Hester with his ability to make the first person miss in the return game, according to special teams coach Dave Toub.
Huddle Up:  The rookie fourth-round pick might not see too many offensive touches with Jamaal Charles, Knile Davis and Cyrus Gray ahead of him on the depth chart, but he could prove to be a sneaky find in leagues that award special-teams points.

Demarcus Ware - DE - Denver Broncos Posted 7/28/14 8:59pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware did not practice Monday, July 28, with a lower right leg bruise. Head coach John Fox said Ware will be fine.
Huddle Up:  This doesn't sound like much of anything, but any ailment will be magnified for the soon-to-be 32-year-old who is coming off career lows in sacks (6) and games played (13) last season in Dallas.

Christian Ponder - QB - Minnesota Vikings Posted 7/28/14 5:58pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Minnesota Vikings are willing to trade QB Christian Ponder. Ponder has performed well during training camp but probably will be the No. 3 quarterback.
Huddle Up:  Ponder never had a realistic chance to win the starting job. Matt Cassel entered training camp as the No. 1 QB and rookie Teddy Bridgewater is closing fast. If the Vikings can't trade Ponder, there is a chance the former first-round pick could be released before the start of the season.

Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings Posted 7/28/14 5:16pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he is looking forward to playing in the team's new offense because it is more versatile than the one the team had been using for the last several seasons. 'Let's call it what it is: I thought in the past, we've been predictable,' Peterson said. 'I'm sure you guys wrote stories about us being predictable the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all I'm saying. You won't be able to do that, because this offense is so versatile.'
Huddle Up:  Peterson is basically saying Norv Turner is a major upgrade over former OC Bill Musgrave, which is 100 percent correct. The Vikings have more talent on offense than some are giving them credit for and the addition of Turner will help them improve on that side of the ball. Many Minnesota offensive players like WR Greg Jennings (Round 13 ADP) are being undervalued heading into the season.

Chad Henne - QB - Jacksonville Jaguars Posted 7/28/14 4:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne has been stellar in the team's first three days of training camp, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley added that Henne looks comfortable and has shown a mastery of the offense.
Huddle Up:  Henne is almost certain to begin the year as Jacksonville's starting QB, as the team brings rookie Blake Bortles along slowly. However, Henne is nothing more than a borderline QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Ryan Williams - RB - Dallas Cowboys Posted 7/28/14 4:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams looks to be a longshot for the final roster, because he is not a good special teams player and would have to help on special teams if he is in a reserve role.
Huddle Up:  Williams is battling Joseph Randle for a roster spot. Despite the fact that Randle was underwhelming when given an opportunity last season, he appears to have the edge over Williams. The former Virgina Tech star could be nearing the end of an injury-riddled career if he gets cut by the Cowboys.

Eli Manning - QB - New York Giants Posted 7/28/14 2:28pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The New York Giants are looking for QB Eli Manning to complete at least 70 percent of his passes this upcoming season, according to quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf. 'He's well aware of who's done it in the past and what the system can get you in terms of completion,' Langsdorf said. 'So we're trying to focus on that and really trying to do a good job of taking care of the ball and hitting open receivers.'
Huddle Up:  Manning is a career 58.5 percent passer, so 70 percent would be a big jump. However, new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is installing short passing attack that emphasizes Manning getting rid of the ball quickly. He may not reach 70 percent but Manning and the Giants offense is primed for a bounceback season under McAdoo.

Matt Cassel - QB - Minnesota Vikings Posted 7/28/14 1:47pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Minnesota Vikings QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder have been evenly splitting reps during the early part of training camp, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner will split the reps two ways after the team's upcoming off day.
Huddle Up:  Cassel is believed to have the edge but Bridgewater is making a strong case to start. The battle will continue during the preseason but the rookie Bridgewater could be under center when the Vikings open the season in St. Louis if he performs well in August.

Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions Posted 7/28/14 1:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 28, and he is expected to take part in the team's first training camp practice later in the day. Tate missed part of the team's spring workouts with a shoulder injury and said his shoulder was 'just a little soreness' in June.
Huddle Up:  Tate's injury was never thought to be serious. He has a good opportunity to put up career-best numbers in Detroit's offense this season.

Shonn Greene - RB - Tennessee Titans Posted 7/28/14 1:34pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene needs to lose five to ten pounds during training camp, according to the coaching staff.
Huddle Up:  This isn't good news for a guy trying to win a starting job. Greene is coming off a year where he averaged 3.8 yards per carry and there have been reports that his roster spot in Tennessee may not be secure. All signs are pointing to rookie Bishop Sankey being the Titans top RB this season. Sankey currently carries an ADP of Round 5.
