Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.
Calvin Ridley: Jaguars being cautious with Ridley
Jaguars coach Doug Pederson said the Jaguars are being “cautious” with Calvin Ridley during OTAs as he gets fully-acclimated back to a full football regiment.
Pederson added it is nothing injury related. He has picked up the offense and shown no signs of rust. Ridley will be slowly worked back as we head into minicamp and training camp.
Jalin Hyatt will likely see ‘sporadic production’ in 2023
Jalin Hyatt, the New York Giants’ third-round draft pick, is expected to make an immediate impact as a deep threat, though his role will probably not be substantial.
Despite reservations about his all-around skills, Hyatt’s potential for explosive plays is undeniable. The Giants, who ranked last in the NFL for explosive pass plays in the previous season, hope to utilize Hyatt’s vertical burst to their advantage. Though his 2023 role might be limited due to a crowded veterans lineup and the need for further development, his potential for sporadic big plays could offer considerable fantasy value. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on him, especially in leagues that reward longer touchdowns. However, his limited route-running skills might affect his consistency, a crucial factor to consider for fantasy lineups.
Dalton Kincaid: Bills OC says role for rookie tight end ‘to be determined’
Bills offensive coordinator says of first-round pick TE Dalton Kincaid “we’re nowhere close to knowing what the big picture is going to be because we have to learn him and he has to learn us.”
Dorsey added it’s “to be determined” until they start getting into training camp and live game action. The Bills selected Kincaid late in the first-round of the NFL Draft back in April and there has been a lot of hype on him since then. The roles of both Kincaid and Dawson Knox will be worth monitoring the rest of the offseason leading into the start of the regular season.
