  Jaguars | Ryquell Armstead cut    Mon May 17, 03:20 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead was waived Monday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Armstead was forced to miss the 2020 season due to complications with COVID-19, but there should be teams willing to take a look at him. In 2019, Armstead flashed a bit as the direct backup to Leonard Fournette. We'll see if he can find a new team in the near future.

  Giants | Rookie WR Toney Lining up Mostly in the Slot    Mon May 17, 03:01 PM

Dan Duggan, from The Athletic, reports Giants first-round WR Kadarius Toney "mostly lined up in the slot and ran shorter routes" during Phase 1 of minicamp.

Footballguys view: That move makes sense for the Giants as Toney is the type of player who can take shorter passes and turn them into long gains. According to Pro Football Focus, during the 2020 season Toney lined up in the slot 505 times and had only 80 snaps where he lined up outside. Toney can be more than a gadget wide receiver if he learns to run the full route tree with more nuance. His athletic gifts are special and he makes defenders look silly after the catch.

  Eagles | Offense Not a Great Fit for Jalen Hurts?    Mon May 17, 02:56 PM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni has not installed much in terms of quarterback reads or run/pass options according to what sources tell Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Footballguys view: Sirianni has constantly reiterated that Hurts is going to have to compete for the starting job. That's fine coachspeak, but the reality is that Hurts is the best option the team has. Hurts is a great runner and can attack a defense with his legs. It would be wise for Sirianni's playbook to highlight that. In order for Hurts to succeed, the Eagles will have to utilize his running ability while he improves as a passer in the pros.

  Lions | Rookie WR St. Brown Being Moved Around the Formation    Mon May 17, 02:54 PM

Detroit Lions rookie wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has been moving all around the formation during rookie minicamp. He was lining up at the slot position and out wide as the Lions find different ways St. Brown can attack a defense.

Footballguys view: Unlike many rookie wide receivers, St. Brown is adept at running the full route tree and in 2020 he was moved outside (293 snaps) more than he was in the slot (116 snaps). However, in previous seasons with the USC Trojans St. Brown was mainly used as a slot receiver. He has a knack for making the first man miss and St. Brown should become a favorite target of QB Jared Goff quickly in training camp and the preseason.

  Steelers | Rookie Harris says Offense Resembles Alabama    Mon May 17, 02:49 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Najee Harris says OC Matt Canada's offense is similar to what he worked in during his college days at Alabama. "The inside zones, the outside zones, the power plays, the one-back power, the duo plays, so a lot of what they are doing in their offense resembles a lot of what we did [at Alabama]," said Harris.

Footballguys view: The Steelers need to lean on their rushing attack more, and that's what they should do this season. Harris should work well in the Canada offense just like he shined in Alabama. He thrived as a runner with subtle "make you miss" ability and can be a fine receiving option out of the backfield. Harris has a current ADP of RB34 (7.08) in 12-team PPR leagues, but expect that to rise as the season gets closer and more people realize he's got RB1 potential in this offense.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz not at workouts    Mon May 17, 02:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz did not report for the start of offseason workouts Monday, May 17, and is expected to stay away until his situation is resolved, according to a source.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Ertz might be traded if the Eagles can find a partner willing to pay their requested price (rumored to be a third-round pick). He's a sound veteran but that $12.7 million cap hit is going to be tough to move. Stay tuned.

  Chiefs | KC adds Daurice Fountain    Mon May 17, 02:09 PM

Free-agent WR Daurice Fountain (Colts) signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, May 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fountain must have impressed during his tryout. He has electricity to his game but his pro career has been set back by injuries. In crazy deep dynasty formats we'll monitor him, especially since he's with the Chiefs.

  Bengals | Seven rookies under contract    Mon May 17, 01:06 PM

Cincinnati Bengals fourth-round draft choices DE Cameron Sample, DT Tyler Shelvin and OT D'Ante Smith, fifth-round draft choice PK Evan McPherson, sixth-round draft choices C Trey Hill and RB Chris Evans and seventh-round draft choice DE Wyatt Hubert signed four-year contracts with the Bengals Monday, May 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Evans is a hard-charging running back from Michigan who is looking to make the roster as a reserve runner. During his college career for the Wolverines, Evans only started six time in 42 games. He seems like a player who could have a better pro career than he did a college one. Evans is patient as a runner and has burst to and through the hole. As a receiver, Evans is a "catch and go" threat and can make defenders miss in space. We'll watch him in deep dynasty formats.

  Lions | Detroit signs two players    Mon May 17, 01:04 PM

Free-agent TE Charlie Taumoepeau (49ers) and CB Alex X. Brown (Chiefs) signed with the Detroit Lions Monday, May 17. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Taumoepeau was undrafted out of Portland State in 2020 but signed on with the Cowboys after the draft. During his college career, Taumoepeau finished with 117 receptions for 1,876 yards and 11 touchdowns. He bounced around to the Colts and the 49ers and now gets a shot with the Lions. They needed more bodies at the position with the retirement of Josh Hill, and Taumoepeau impressed enough during his tryout to earn a longer look.

  49ers | Marqise Lee to Niners    Mon May 17, 11:45 AM

Free-agent WR Marqise Lee (Patriots) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the San Francisco 49ers Monday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Lee hasn't played a full season since 2017, but he did enough in his tryout with the 49ers to stick around a bit longer. If healthy, the veteran could easily make the team with his skill set and starting experience. It looks like his deep dynasty stock has a slight uptick.

  Bengals | Trent Taylor to Bengals    Mon May 17, 09:58 AM

Free-agent WR Trent Taylor (49ers) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Taylor is a classic slot receiver who is quick on underneath routes. He's battled with injuries during his time with the 49ers and now gets a fresh start with the Bengals. We'll see if he can stay healthy and do enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

  Bears | Andy Dalton to work with first team    Sun May 16, 04:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton will work with the first-team offense when offseason workouts begin even through QB Justin Fields performed well during the rookie minicamp, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

Footballguys view: That makes sense for now as Fields learns the ropes. The Bears took Fields in the first round for a reason and he'll be the franchise quarterback soon enough. Dalton will get the jump as the initial starter in camp but we're expecting Fields to push him ASAP.

  Bears | Chicago signing Chris Lacy    Sun May 16, 03:40 PM

Free-agent WR Chris Lacy (Cowboys) agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears Sunday, May 16. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Lacy has been bouncing around the league since he was an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State in 2018. He's spent time with the Patriots, Lions and Cowboys. Now, he'll get a chance to prove himself with the Bears. There's a chance for him to earn a spot behind Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney although he's a long-shot for the final roster.

  Browns | Johnnie Dixon trying out    Sun May 16, 01:26 PM

Free-agent WR Johnnie Dixon (Cardinals) is participating in the Cleveland Browns rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Originally an undrafted free agent for the Texans in 2019, the former Ohio State receiver made some plays for them in the preseason (9 catches, 77 yards) but did not make the team. The Cardinals picked him up and stashed him on their practice squad after that and since then. Dixon is a long shot to make the Browns roster and is angling to get on their practice squad.

  Buccaneers | Tampa adding four players    Sun May 16, 01:14 PM

Free-agent RB Troymaine Pope (Chargers), TE Jerell Adams (Lions), CB Antonio Hamilton (Chiefs) and S Curtis Riley (Vikings) agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, May 16. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Pope has a bit of experience in the league from his time with the Chargers. The Buccaneers are stacked at the running back position, so Pope will have to earn his spot on special teams.
