Tyrone Tracy Jr. works with first-team Tuesday
Tyrone Tracy Jr. spent a good portion of the 11-on-11 drills working with the first-team on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie is pushing to play a role on passing downs this season. He’ll be a player to monitor to see if he can hold up in pass protection. Devin Singletary should remain the lead back on early downs to open the season.

Russell Wilson remains in ‘pole position’ for starting job
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Russell Wilson remains “in the pole position in the competition” for the QB1 role, according to the team’s offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

Fantasy Impact

Smith mentioned that he expects the competition to heat up once the team gets into training camp later in the summer, but he also insisted the team has been transparent with both Wilson and QB Justin Fields on that front since they joined the team. Both Wilson and Fields are set to be free agents after 2024, and both QBs have plenty to gain and lose this season regarding their future, making the competition one to keep an eye on.

Rhamondre Stevenson said he ‘is close’ to an extension with Patriots
Rhamondre Stevenson told reporters he’s “pretty close” to reaching an extension with the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Stevenson is coming off a down season where he averaged a career-low 4.0 yards per carry. He also suffered an ankle injury that ended his season early. He could lose some work in the passing game to Antonio Gibson this year, but should remain the lead back on the early downs. Stevenson is entering the final year of his current contract.
