Fantasy Impact: While the Rams have plenty of slot-type receivers, they have lacked a quality #1 for a long time. Robert Woods is best suited for the flanker role, so besides Reynolds, the only other prototypical X receiver on the roster is 2016 6th-round pick Mike Thomas. Reynolds should be drafted in all dynasty leagues and could contribute sooner rather than later in a weak LA receiving group.


The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports Browns second-round QB DeShone Kizer "has considerably narrowed the gap" to Cody Kessler. (Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Fantasy Impact: The rookie will push hard for the starting job in training camp. QBs coach David Lee bluntly said Kizer is "not ready to play" last week, so he clearly still has work to do. Kessler is still the slight favorite to open Week 1 as the starter, but his spot atop the depth chart is precarious at best. Kizer can have a chance to really make an impact year one if he shows enough in training camp.


With the signing of Henderson, Denver's third-round selection out of Louisiana Tech, the Broncos have now signed all of their rookies taken in the 2017 NFL Draft. (Source: Source: Mike Klis on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Denver drafted Henderson in the third round in hopes to fill the third receiver slot between playmakers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Whether he starts from day one of the 2018 regular season or not, expect to see Henderson involved on special teams as a kick returner. But with Thomas and Sanders getting the majority of the targets and the uncertainty at the quarterback position, Henderson is nothing more than a late round flyer pick in all formats.
