Dante Pettis projected as San Fran's number one wideout photo
Pettis flashed plenty of upside as a rookie last season, totaling four touchdowns over a three-game stretch at one point. San Francisco doesn't have any established receivers on the roster, which creates a big opportunity for the 23-year-old. He's a name to monitor throughout training camp.

Julio Jones to have new contract by training camp photo
Jones has been one of the most consistent and elite options at wideout since entering the league, and his numbers over the past five seasons have been eye-popping. He’s recorded five straight 1,400-yard receiving campaigns, dating back to 2014, but he is just the 12th-highest paid receiver in the NFL, ...

Rico Gathers suspended one game for substance abuse photo
There was a time when Gathers looked like a potential dynasty stash and upside TE to roster in dynasty formats. However, he's currently irrelevant for fantasy purposes as he's buried on the Cowboys' depth chart behind Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin, and Dalton Schultz.

Michael Roberts traded to Patriots  photo
Roberts becomes another acquisition for the Patriots in the passing game, and he may have some late-round fantasy upside. At 6-5, 265 pounds, he’s a matchup problem in the red zone and could make an impact around the goal line. Matt LaCosse is likely to open the season as the ...

Chris Herndon IV could face a two-game suspension  photo
The suspension stems from Herndon IV pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated in January. Herndon looked impressive at times during his 2018 rookie campaign, finishing with a 39-502-4 line. The depth chart behind him is paper thin, with offseason standout Daniel Brown and 2019 fourth-round pick Trevon Wesco the most ...

Trey Burton (sports-hernia) has a chance to be ready for training camp photo
Nagy added that he can't 100% guarantee Burton will be ready after undergoing sports-hernia surgery this off-season, however. If he's healthy entering 2019 Burton could be a post-hype sleeper. His health will be a situation to monitor this summer.
