Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Arizona Cardinals despite being held out of practice Friday with a foot injury. Andrews caught all eight of his targets in Week 1 against Miami for 108 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three of quarterback Lamar Jackson's five third-down completions, which boosts his potential of becoming Jackson's "security blanket" going forward. The growing chemistry between these two will prove to be a nice bonus for your fantasy lineups as the season progresses. It is safe to start Andrews against a Cardinals Defense that allowed rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson to rack up 131 yards and a touchdown in Week 1.
New York Giants wide receiver/kick returner Da'Mari Scott has elected to opt out of the 2020 NFL season. Scott has mostly been a special teams contributor when active. He was active for five games last season and three in 2018 for the Bills. Scott has caught two passes in his career, for a total of 22 yards.
Dallas Cowboys full back Jamize Olawale has chose to opt out of the 2020 season. In two seasons with Dallas, Olawale has yet to attempt a rush and has caught just two passes. He has primarily worked on special teams, logging 539 special teams snaps as compared to just 232 offensive snaps (almost all for blocking). He's under contract for $1.3 million in 2021.
The Cleveland Browns placed wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) on the active/PUP list on Sunday. The team said that Landry has not had a setback and is still on schedule in his recovery. Landry is healing up from February hip surgery. Initially given a 6-8 month timetable to return, Landry will be cutting it close if he wants to be active for Week 1. If Landry is unable to start the season on time, Kareem Hunt could see added snaps as a wide receiver. When healthy, Landry is a solid WR2 in PPR leagues.
Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is using his slide into the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft as motivation for his upcoming rookie season. In speaking with reporters in a 15-minute Zoom session, Dobbins stated, "I don't need any fuel but it added fuel. It was kind of shocking but I fell to the right team." Dobbins clearly feels he belonged in the first round of the draft, although his inability to participate in the combine back in February may have contributed to the slide. Dobbins will almost surely open the season behind veteran Mark Ingram II but the rookie has massive upside, especially if Ingram misses time throughout the year. Dobbins is a blue-chip building block as a dynasty prospect and an upside RB3 in redraft.
The Dallas Cowboys have officially released kicker Kai Forbath. Forbath came to the Cowboys near the end of last season and made all 10 of his kicks after replacing Brett Maher. Forbath's early release means that Greg Zuerlein has locked up the kicking job in Dallas. With a strong leg in what should be a powerful offense, Zuerlein makes for a good fantasy kicking option.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku has decided to "give the team his full commitment" according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Njoku requested a trade from Cleveland last month but reportedly had some positive meetings with the organization, including general manager Andrew Berry. Those who were hoping Njoku would land with a team that would provide him a clearer path to targets and fantasy stats will have to look elsewhere for tight end production now. Njoku will compete for looks with free-agent signing Austin Hooper, although the Browns reportedly have a significant role in the offense planned for Njoku. For now, he's a low-end TE2 in fantasy drafts.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees focused his offseason training on throwing the deep ball. The 41-year-old stated his goal was to throw a 60-yard pass and proceeded to work at it since March, deploying unique training methods because of the coronavirus pandemic. Brees said "there have been moments of discovery" and that he hopes it pays dividends on the field. That would be nice for both the Saints and fantasy managers who draft him, considering he has looked downfield less and less as he's aged. Pro Football Focus ranked him just 22nd as a deep-ball passer and only Jimmy Garoppolo threw deep less in 2019. Brees remains as accurate as ever and should have a solid floor most weeks for fantasy. Perhaps his offseason workouts will help him look downfield more, giving him better upside in 2020.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip) remains on track in his rehab, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski. Landry had surgery to repair his hip back on February 4 and, according to Stefanski, is targeting a return to the field sometime in August. When asked just how much Landry would be able to participate in training camp, Stefanski said, Our physicals for vets are Saturday and Sunday of this week, so I will have a better answer for you after that. But he remains on schedule based on everything he has done post-surgery. Assuming Landry is ready for Week 1, he can be drafted confidently as a WR2 in fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku requested a trade from the team last month after the team added other tight ends to the roster, most notably Austin Hooper. Head coach Kevin Stefanski was asked about Njoku recently and stated, My stance hasnt changed. The organizations stance hasnt changed in that we believe in David. Stefanski reportedly plans to use Njoku heavily in his offense, which ran two-tight end sets frequently when he was the offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings. There's still a chance the team deals Njoku during training camp but for now, it appears they still consider him a part of their future plans.
The New Orleans Saints signed linebacker Nigel Bradham to a one-year deal on Thursday. With the loss of starter A.J. Klein to the Buffalo Bills and two other starters coming off injuries from last year, depth was needed at the position. The 30-year-old Bradham has compiled at least 80 total tackles four times in his career and was a key member of the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl-winning defense. With the uncertainty of training camps and OTAs, New Orleans may lean on the veteran early in the season as a starter.
