Fantasy Football News & Rumors

Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.

Kyren Williams (foot) won’t participate in OTAs
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said RB Kyren Williams will not be available for voluntary OTAs due to a “foot issue.”

Fantasy Impact

McVay said that Williams should be back for training camp. In the meantime, it can be expected that rookie RB Blake Corum will get extra opportunities. McVay praised Corum for his play style similarities to Williams, and he will be able to fill in during the veteran’s temporary absence. Williams’ status should be monitored come training camp.

Justin Fields happy with landing spot, plans to compete for QB1
Justin Fields, in his first interview since being traded, says he is happy with his landing spot in Pittsburgh. Fields also said that he doesn’t plan to sit as the backup quarterback all year and plans to compete for the starting role with Russell Wilson.

Fantasy Impact

Fields was aware a trade was coming and was appreciative that Ryan Poles put him in the spot he wanted to be at. Fields holds a truly unique rushing upside, and if he can carve out a role as a starter, his rushing prowess will almost certainly put him in the QB1 conversation.

Christian McCaffrey not present at beginning of OTAs
Veteran RB Christian McCaffrey was not present at the start of the San Francisco 49ers’ voluntary OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

Considering they are voluntary workouts, it shouldn’t be seen as a major concern yet. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said he did not know the reason McCaffrey wasn’t present. However, money is not likely to be the issue, as he is still on his large contract he was given by the Carolina Panthers.
