Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks said he has 'zero' concerns about his concussion history. 'For me, I'm not worried at all,' said Cooks. 'If there is any hesitation or worry, I wouldn't be here right now.'

  Ravens | James Proche may be returner    Fri Aug 7, 06:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR James Proche is considered the leading candidate for the punt returner job this season. WR Willie Snead and Marquise Brown are also options for the job.

Footballguys view: Proche is a quality slot receiver with top notch hands, but he doesn't provide the speed third round pick Devin Duvernay brings to the table, so special teams is his best path to making the team.

  Texans | Kenny Stills placed on NFI list    Fri Aug 7, 04:36 PM

Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills (illness) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Illness list Friday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Stills probably would have been traded this offseason, but he has a seven million dollar price tag. He may end up being the odd man out in the passing offense with the addition of Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb, but an injury or two to a wide receiver would make him relevant again.

  Falcons | Calvin Ridley impresses coach    Fri Aug 7, 02:39 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley has 'really put in a good offseason ... he's bigger, stronger,' Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Friday, Aug. 7, in a media conference call.

Footballguys view: Ridley is still going two rounds or so after Julio Jones, but has an outside shot at becoming the most productive Falcons receiver this year. He's part of a wide receiver group that is so deep in fantasy drafts that it has made many good names stay available rounds after they should be.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard looking to lead    Fri Aug 7, 01:03 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is entering the 2020 season as the longest-tenured Giant, and said Friday, Aug. 7, in a Zoom media conference call that 'I might have to shake the 'young' Shep.' He added that he plans to set a 'good example' for his younger teammates.

Footballguys view: The Giants have quite the arsenal of targets for Daniel Jones if everyone can stay healthy. In Shepard's case, that means avoiding concussions after they were a problem for him last year. He has played and produced better than his cheap ADP and could be a hit if he stays healthy and Evan Engram does not.

  Steelers | James Washington activated    Fri Aug 7, 11:03 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Washington will be working on building chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger after the two barely played together last year. Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool will be his main competition for snaps at outside receiver with Juju Smith-Schuster in the slot.

  Jets | Josh Doctson put on reserve list    Thu Aug 6, 05:28 PM

Updating a previous story, New York Jets WR Josh Doctson was placed on the Reserve/Opt-Out list Thursday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: Doctson was a first-round pick for Washington in the 2016 NFL draft but has bounced around the league. He played one game for the Vikings in 2019 and was no lock for the 53-man roster with the Jets.

  Dolphins | Miami talking to receivers    Thu Aug 6, 05:02 PM

Free-agent WRs Ricardo Louis (Dolphins) and Chester Rogers (Colts) have been contacted and put through physicals by the Miami Dolphins, according to a source Thursday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Dolphins have had two receivers opt out (Albert Wilson, Allen Hurns) so their WR corps is getting a bit thin. Add in the fact that Preston Williams is still on the road to recovery from the knee injury he suffered mid-season in 2019, and you can see how the Dolphins would be in the market for more wide receivers. We'll see if any of these guys get signed.

  Rams | Robert Woods has had some contract talks    Thu Aug 6, 03:41 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods said he has had preliminary contract extension talks with the Rams and wants to finish his career with Los Angeles.

Footballguys view: Woods is signed for a bargain price for no.1 wide receivers. When he signed his five-year, $34 million contract in 2017 Woods was not considered the no.1 wideout ...and over the last three seasons he has performed as such. His current contract has two years remaining, but Woods salary ranks 37th among all wide receivers in terms of annual average salary. We'll see if the two sides can find a way to get a new contract done.

  Raiders | Henry Ruggs III to start in slot    Thu Aug 6, 09:54 AM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III will start in the slot, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson. Ruggs played 218 snaps there over the last two seasons in college, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Ruggs can use that trademark speed to get by defenders down the seam. Working from the slot will allow the rookie first-round pick to get a clean release and get into his routes faster. Ruggs played 97 (out of 527) snaps from the slot last year for Alabama, catching 10 passes for 166 yards from that position. Even though the plan may be for Ruggs to start in the slot, he certainly has the ability to be moved all around the formation. Ruggs should be the no.1 receiver the Raiders have been looking for.

  Jets | Competition for Denzel Mims?    Wed Aug 5, 09:54 PM

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims' lack of reps during the abbreviated offseason could force general manager Joe Douglas to add a veteran receiver before the start of the season, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: This is something to watch as the team goes through training camp. Mims is a talented receiver but the rookie has some catching up to do because of the abbreviated offseason. We love Mims upside as a pass-catcher in the pros. He's got a fine size/speed combination and his 'my ball' mentality might be the best in his draft class. We'll see if Mims can show enough in camp to prevent the Jets from adding another veteran to the room.

  49ers | Travis Benjamin added to reserve    Wed Aug 5, 05:35 PM

Updating a previous story, San Francisco 49ers WR Travis Benjamin was officially placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: Benjamin didn't do much for the 49ers last year and he's a player with a declining skill set. With him opting out, the 49ers might consider any free agents that are on the open market.

  Dolphins | Albert Wilson officially on reserve list    Wed Aug 5, 05:30 PM

Updating a previous story, Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson was officially placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: Wilson is now the second Dolphins WR to opt out this year, joining Allen Hurns in the decision to miss the 2020 season. The team is getting thinner at the position. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams are the top two receivers with Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford as the No.3 and No.4 options.

  Dolphins | Preston Williams being eased back    Wed Aug 5, 04:50 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams (knee) is being eased back this offseason and a team source said there's no assurance he will be available for Week 1, but the Dolphins are cautiously optimistic.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Williams was looking good last year as an undrafted rookie out of Colorado State. A knee injury cut his rookie season short after eight games, and he had knee surgery in November. Williams has been on the road to recovery ever since then and might have to be eased in at the start of the regular season. He may not be 100 percent until the midway point of this season, and Williams may not be 100 percent healthy this year at all.

  Bills | Stefon Diggs tweaks contract    Wed Aug 5, 04:01 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs restructured his contract Tuesday, Aug. 4, according to a source. He'll receive an extra $3.3 million in 2020, an extra $7.7 million in guaranteed money but a decrease of $300,000 cash in 2021 and a drop from $25.55 million to $22.67 million in 2022-23 cash.

Footballguys view: Diggs is going to be the primary Bills receiver in 2020. He's been working this offseason to establish chemistry with QB Josh Allen. If Allen can play better and throw with better accuracy, then Diggs could pay off for Fantasy GMs as a WR2 with upside. It's going to be a wild ride if you want to start Diggs on a weekly basis.

  Buccaneers | Tyler Johnson dealing with injury    Wed Aug 5, 02:06 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Tyler Johnson (undisclosed) has been limited during practice because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: Johnson was the team's fifth-round pick out of Minnesota and he's got intriguing upside in dynasty formats. He's a big slot receiver with the strength to run through arm tackles. He'll compete for a spot in the pecking order behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

  Ravens | Marquise Brown bulks up    Wed Aug 5, 12:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown said he added 23 pounds this offseason and currently weighs 180 pounds.

Footballguys view: That's a lot of weight to add and just be 180 pounds but Brown was never a big guy anyway. Brown is incredibly explosive and dangerous in the open field. If healthy, Brown can be a favorite target of QB Lamar Jackson in 2020.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay activated    Wed Aug 5, 11:59 AM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Footballguys view: That didn't last long. Golladay was on the list for about a week and now he's back in action. Fantasy GMs should consider him a WR1 in 2020, especially if Matthew Stafford can stay healthy all season long.

New England Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (undisclosed) passed his physical and was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 4, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Sanu is looking for a bounce-back season after struggling to impress while banged up during his Patriots debut in 2019. With QB Cam Newton tossing him the rock, Sanu could have some deep flex appeal for Fantasy GMs this year.

  Vikings | Justin Jefferson activated from COVID list    Tue Aug 4, 04:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Footballguys view: Jefferson is going to be a big part of the Vikings offense in 2020...or at least that's the plan. The first-round pick from LSU did a majority of his damage last year from the slot but he's likely have to play some outside in the pros. His game is all about run-after-the-catch ability which is good in the play-action offense like the Vikings run under OC Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: We'll put our chips on the rookie Gandy-Golden. He was a small-school standout at Liberty and showed at the Senior Bowl earlier this year that he can hang with better competition. This battle will unfold in training camp.

  49ers | Trent Taylor ready for camp    Mon Aug 3, 10:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (foot) passed his physical and is healthy heading into training camp.

Footballguys view: Taylor has talent but has been too injured in the pros to really see what he can do on a consistent basis. The 49ers WR corps is hurting with Deebo Samuel missing perhaps a month or so at the start of the regular season. It would be a boost if Taylor can get out there, stay healthy, and show what he can do from the slot.
