  Cardinals | Christian Kirk not practicing    Tue Aug 3, 02:39 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (undisclosed) has been nursing a minor undisclosed injury recently, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 3, that he expects Kirk back 'soon.'

Footballguys view: It's an undisclosed injury so who knows what's keeping Kirk out of action. If he's going to return soon as Kingsbury says then it must not be anything too major.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore worked with the first team - ahead of Keelan Cole - on the first play of practice for the first time Tuesday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: The drumbeat continues. All offseason long we've heard nothing but good things about the rookie Moore coming out of Jets camp. He's working with the first team early in training camp and we're excited to see what he can do in the preseason.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley feeling confident in foot    Tue Aug 3, 01:39 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 3, that his surgically repaired foot is 'totally, definitely fixed.' Ridley added that his foot was not in good shape last season.

Footballguys view: Ridley was bothered by his foot injury for most of the 2020 season and that's why he had offseason surgery to repair it. What he was able to do on a bad foot (90 catches, 1,374 yards, nine touchdowns) is incredible in hindsight. This year with Julio Jones traded away Ridley is set to be targeted early and often in 2021.

  Giants | Kenny Golladay's day cut short Tuesday    Tue Aug 3, 01:32 PM

New York Giants WR Kenny Golladay (leg) suffered an apparent left leg injury during practice Tuesday, Aug. 3. He immediately went to the sideline and then with trainers inside the team's facility for further evaluation, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We'll have to wait and see what's going on with Golladay before commenting further. The Giants no.1 receiver is there to help QB Daniel Jones in a make-or-break year for the young passer. We'll see what's going on with his leg when more information is revealed.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill a no-go Tuesday    Tue Aug 3, 01:20 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (knee) did not take part in practice Tuesday, Aug. 3, due to knee tendinitis, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Hill is getting some rest and the team might limit him in the preseason. Once the regular season hits, Hill should be back to his normal self. Hill is a late first-round pick in most formats, with a current ADP of WR2 (1.11) in 12-team PPR formats.

  Jets | Elijah Moore continues to impress    Mon Aug 2, 09:03 PM

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore has been 'unstoppable' through five days of training camp and 'one of the best players' over that span, according to DJ Bien-Aime II of the New York Daily News.'He's got the ability to play outside, inside, gadget, whatever you want to do. The reason why he's able to do that is because of his mental capacity, the young man is very smart. ... He knows all three positions at the receiver spot. And because of it and his ability to move around, he's gonna have a bright future,' head coach Robert Saleh said.

  Cardinals | A.J. Green receives hefty praise from teammate    Mon Aug 2, 08:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green still 'has a lot in the tank' and is 'still in his prime,' according to teammate DeAndre Hopkins.'I probably haven't played with anyone of his caliber. ... I know you guys are probably going to take that run with it. ... The reason I say that, A.J. still has a lot in the tank. The other two (likely) Hall of Famers I played with (Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson), I'd say, were at the end of their career. They taught me a lot, but I feel like A.J. is still in his prime,' Hopkins said.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown expected to miss more time    Mon Aug 2, 01:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown's (hamstring) hamstring injury is more serious than the team initially thought, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: This is not the injury you want to see with a super fast and super quick receiver like Brown. Hamstring injuries can linger if not given time to rest. Brown has missed the last three practices because of the injury.

  Vikings | Olabisi Johnson placed on IR    Mon Aug 2, 01:02 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Olabisi Johnson (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Olabisi Johnson suffered a torn ACL in practice and is now lost for the season. It's bad news for a promising young player who was competing to be the no.3 receiver for the Vikings. Now, the team will turn to newly signed Dede Westbrook to fill that spot.

  Eagles | More on DeVonta Smith    Mon Aug 2, 11:56 AM

Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (knee) has a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee that will cost him two to three weeks.

Footballguys view: Smith is a speedy rookie who is going to miss on valuable camp time with QB Jalen Hurts due to this injury. However, a 2-3 week timetable means Smith should be ready to rock for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Dolphins | DeVante Parker activated    Mon Aug 2, 11:51 AM

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (undisclosed) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran here. He was placed on the PUP list at the start of camp for whatever injury situation this is (the team left his status undisclosed). Now, he's back and ready to build on the chemistry he started with QB Tua Tagovailoa last year. Parker is seen as a WR5 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2021. He's got a current ADP of WR57 (13.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | DeVonta Smith out a couple weeks    Mon Aug 2, 10:50 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (knee) has a minor knee sprain and should only be out for a couple of weeks.

Footballguys view: The reports indicate Smith will miss 2-3 weeks. That keeps him out of the preseason but he should be ready to rock for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Cowboys | Amari Cooper in top shape    Sun Aug 1, 09:25 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) came into training camp in great shape, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'Everything's been extremely positive from the strength staff,' McCarthy said. 'His weight is as low as it's been since I've worked with him, so he looks great.'

Footballguys view: Great news for Cooper here. Jerry Jones previously said that Cooper is expected to return to practice after the team's August 13th preseason game. It sounds like everything is on track for Cooper after he underwent ankle surgery after the 2020 season. Cooper is going to compete with CeeDee Lamb to be the top receiver for a high-powered Cowboys offense in 2021. Fantasy GMs see Cooper as a WR2 with upside, and he's got a current ADP of WR16 (4.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | DeVonta Smith suffers minor injury    Sun Aug 1, 11:44 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith (leg) sustained a minor leg injury during practice Saturday, July 31.

Footballguys view: We'll trust that it is minor until we hear otherwise. Hopefully Smith is back to practice within a few days with no recurrence of the injury. In the meantime, Greg Ward should get more snaps in the slot if Smith sits.

  Vikings | Olabisi Johnson done for the year    Sat Jul 31, 08:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Olabisi Johnson (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice Friday, July 30, and will miss the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Dede Westbrook was recently signed to compete for the third wide receiver job, so the Vikings might not make a move at wide receiver to replace Johnson. Fifth round rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette should also get more opportunities in the wake of this loss.

  Dolphins | Will Fuller remains day-to-day    Sat Jul 31, 07:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Will Fuller (undisclosed) is listed as day-to-day, according to head coach Brian Flores.

Footballguys view: Hopefully Fuller gets back on the field soon. Between this, Jaylen Waddle still reportedly limping at times per Adam Beasley and DeVante Parker starting camp on the PUP list, a suddenly resurgent Albert Wilson will have a chance to break into the wide receiver rotation and further muddy this unclear passing game target tree.

Free-agent TE Jordan Matthews (49ers) agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers Friday, July 30. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Matthews, now a tight end, is going to try and earn a roster spot with the 49ers. He was with the team in 2020 and appeared in two games. Now, he joins a crowded but inexperienced tight end room behind superstar George Kittle. Charlie Woerner, Ross Dwelley, MyCole Pruitt, and UDFA Josh Pederson are the players Matthews will have to compete with.

  Falcons | J'Mon Moore joins Atlanta    Fri Jul 30, 07:23 PM

Free-agent WR J'Mon Moore (Texans) signed with the Atlanta Falcons Friday, July 30. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick of the Packers in the 2018 NFL draft, Moore has bounced around to several teams since then. He's a big-bodied player who knows how to use his size but only has two pro catches in the regular season. Moore can also work on special teams, improving his chances of making the Falcons even though he's a long shot to do so.

Footballguys view: We haven't seen any reason to worry about Beckham's recovery from ACL surgery. He's probably undervalued at his current ADP.

  Rams | Sean McVay sings DeSean Jackson's praises    Fri Jul 30, 12:45 AM

Los Angeles Rams WR DeSean Jackson is a 'special player' and 'definitely looks like the same DeSean that I've seen,' according to head coach Sean McVay.

Footballguys view: Jackson won't create fantasy value of his own, but if he can stay healthy on limited snaps, he could be an important element to stretch the field and create room for others to operate along with landing kill shots in the play action passing game. He's another reason to be optimistic about Matthew Stafford this year.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton a bit timid early in camp    Thu Jul 29, 11:50 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (knee) 'is still holding back a little bit' and displaying 'a little hesitancy' early in training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: Sutton's injury happened 11 months ago, this is definitely something that should give us pause before we take Sutton at ADP. It's also a reason to give Jerry Jeudy a longer look at ADP. The mental side of ACL recovery is as important as physical, and it's hard to tell if it's one, the other, or both slowing Sutton getting back to full speed.
