Clay Matthews - LB - Green Bay Packers
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews will return to outside linebacker in 2016.
Huddle Up: Matthews can be more of a fantasy force from the outside, free to rush the passer and pile up sacks.
Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team will officially file its appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Monday, May 23, which is the deadline to do so. 'The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it,' attorney Ted Olson said.
Huddle Up: Because really, who wants Deflategate to go away? All Deflategate all the time, that's what I say. Take this baby to the Supreme Court because clearly the most important thing this country needs to decide is whether or not Brady let the air out of some footballs and tried to cover it up by destroying his cell phone. Meanwhile, fantasy owners can keep Jimmy Garoppolo on the shelf for now.
Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor expects more out of the offense because he has a year of experience under his belt, and he wants to open up the passing game.
Huddle Up: Notoriously conservative Rex Ryan might have something to say about how much Taylor opens up the offense, but he's right about being more effective in Year Two of operating the scheme. And with Sammy Watkins on the roster, the Bills certainly have good reason to do more than Ryan's beloved "ground and pound".
Jalen Ramsey - CB - Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed first-round pick CB Jalen Ramsey, and his four-year rookie contract includes $23.3 million in guaranteed money, along with a $15.1 million signing bonus, according to a source. The deal also includes a fifth-year option.
Huddle Up: Ramsey's meniscus knee injury suffered last week didn't affect his deal, and now we're waiting to hear how much time the fifth-overall pick might miss. That answer might come Monday when Ramsey reportedly will get a second opinion on the injury.
Devontae Booker - RB - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker said he wants to become one of the best running backs in franchise history, and he plans to 'take someone's job' this year.
Huddle Up: Right now, that job looks to be Ronnie Hillman's with C.J. Anderson and his new contract penciled into the No. 1 role, but another uninspiring training camp or slow start by Anderson could open the door for the fourth-round rookie.
Cameron Wake - DE - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') has exceeded expectations in terms of where doctors thought he would be at in his recovery, executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said recently.
Huddle Up: The Fins are counting on the 34-year-old Wake more than ever, letting Olivier Vernon walk and signing Wake to a two-year extension. IDP league owners should follow suit and don't let Wake slip too far in drafts despite the red flags.
Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been more vocal this offseason, according to TE Delanie Walker, and he looks more comfortable with the offensive system and is making quicker decisions.
Huddle Up: Mariota should improve and should up his fantasy-point total after missing four starts as a rookie, but he will be counting on basically the same pass-catching cast and will do good just to move up into QB2 territory.
Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller said the offensive concepts are similar to those he used as a member of the Miami Dolphins, with some differences in terminology, and he said finding his way around Houston has been tougher than learning the playbook.
Huddle Up: Miller did score a career-high 10 TDs last season, but getting more touches than the 241 he did a year ago in Miami could have him threatening to break into the lower-tier of RB1 backs.
Arian Foster - RB - Free Agent
Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Achilles') expects to pass his physical in the next couple of weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Huddle Up: Foster reportedly did not visit with the Patriots last week as widely speculated, but they're the front-runners as much any team is at this point to sign the veteran back after not adding a RB in the draft.
Will Tye - TE - New York Giants
New York Giants TE Will Tye's pass-catching potential and athleticism make him the favorite to start at tight end in 2016 for the Giants, in the opinion of Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. TEs Larry Donnell, Matt LaCosse and Jerell Adams will also be competing.
Huddle Up: Tye came on at the end of last season with at least 100 PPR-league points in five of his last seven games, and with Donnell's health and and the youth and inexperience elsewhere on the TE depth chart, definitely don't rule out Tye being the man again in 2016.
Jeremy Hill - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill's yards per carry dropped from 5.1 as a rookie to 3.6 last season, and he was missing running lanes that he hit quickly in his rookie year.
Huddle Up: Hill's total yardage also took a nearly-500-yard dip, but the saving grace was his 12 total TDs. Nevertheless, that can't be counted on again, so his between-the-20 production needs a steady bump this season.
Charles Clay - TE - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay is expected to be more productive in his second season with the Bills, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. More looks his way and better health are considered to be two key factors in what Buffalo hopes to be a better season for Clay.
Huddle Up: Clay started strong but had only one double-digit fantasy-point game after Week 4, but Year 2 for Clay -- and QB Tyrod Taylor -- in the Bills' system should bring a bump in production.
Jameis Winston - QB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he was not a big fan of QB Jameis Winston when he entered the NFL, but his opinion has changed after working with him this offseason. Monken said the passing game needs to improve under Winston because it was inconsistent in 2015. 'I think from the outside you would've looked at it with all the things that were publicized in the past about him and who he is. I was dead wrong. He wants to win as much as we do. He's a competitive joker, man, he's smart, he's intelligent ... you can win a lot of games with guys like that,' Monken said.
Huddle Up: Winston finished 13th among fantasy QBs as a rookie, but more familiarity -- a bounce-back season from No. 1 WR Mike Evans -- could have Winston verging into QB1 territory this fall.
