Fantasy Impact: Doubs, a fourth-round pick out of Nevada, has made a positive impression on the Packers coaching staff and Aaron Rodgers over the course of the off-season. Earning praise from a Hall-Of-Fame quarterback is always good, but it’s especially telling because Rodgers seldom talks up rookies. Doubs could wind up having a much bigger role than many project at a position that is wide open for Green Bay.

Jeremy Ruckert added to active roster

Fantasy Impact: Ruckert has been dealing with a foot injury this off-season, but he has been activated and seems to be ready to go for practice. He will have to battle for a roster spot behind C.J. Uzomah and Jack Conklin, and he probably won’t have much value for fantasy unless there is an unforeseen injury.

Alec Pierce continuing to work with first team

Fantasy Impact: Pierce, a rookie pick for the Colts this year, continues to have an impressive off-season in Indianapolis. He has already proven that he has quality talent, but now he is solidifying the trust of both the coaching staff and quarterback Matt Ryan, which is very valuable to his outlook. Pierce could end up being a very valuable pick for fantasy if he is a starter for the team.

Kyle Philips getting reps with first team

Fantasy Impact: Philips was a late pick for the Titans in the draft this year, but it appears that he’s impressing the coaching staff, as they’re giving him first team slot reps. Tennessee is thin at the wide receiver position, so if he can step up and play a starting role, that would be very positive for the team. For fantasy purposes, he could find some streaming value if he can actually become a starter in this offense.
