Fantasy Impact: Olsen was hobbled by his foot injury all season long in 2018, totaling just 27 receptions for 291 yards and four touchdowns. The 34-year-old will enter 2019 as a back-end TE1 in fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: "Jimmy G" is only participating in 7-on-7 drills right now as the team doesn't want defenders around his restructured ACL. Garoppolo is still expected to be a full-go for training camp, however. He'll enter 2019 as a back-end QB1.


Tyler Kroft suffered a broken foot on the first day of OTAs on Monday. (Source: Vic Carucci on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's a tough way to start kick off the season. Kroft will need to undergo surgery and there's currently no timetable for a return. The 26-year-old signed a three-year deal with Buffalo this off-season but his Week 1 availability is now up in the air.

Fantasy Impact: Foster reportedly grabbed his knee right away and was sobbing when getting carted off. These factors lead us to believe he suffered a serious injury. The Redskins will likely update his status later today.


Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Carson Wentz (back) will have zero limitations at OTAs. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wentz was banged up all of 2018 and looks to finally be healthy. Philadelphia will reportedly still be "smart" with him at OTAs, but he's expected to be involved in the majority of all work. In 11 games last season Wentz compiled a 21/7 TD/INT ratio.


Ezekiel Ansah has no timetable for return from his shoulder injury following his new contract with the Seattle Seahawks. (Source: http://sports.mynorthwest.com/643343/seahawks-de-ziggy-ansah-seattle-was-perfect-fit-for-me/)

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks were willing to give him $6M in guaranteed money after shipping Frank Clark off to the Chiefs in April. There have been conflicting reports on how quickly he'd be ready to play, but as of now, Week 1 is certainly still in question.


Philip Lindsay (wrist) will be limited for the start of OTAs according to head coach Vig Fangio. (Source: Mike Klis on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Broncos are hopeful Lindsay will be good to go for the start of training camp. He underwent off-season wrist surgery and Denver is taking things slow with him for now. The 24-year-old ran for over 1,000 yards last year while totaling 10 touchdowns.


Emmanuel Sanders does not expect to return from his Achilles injury until mid-July. (Source: 9news.com)

Fantasy Impact: Sanders recently began running in cleats and working on lateral movements, so he's pretty much on schedule right now. The 32-year-old faces some tough odds coming back from an Achilles injury so it'll be important to monitor his rehab as the summer progresses. He's currently penciled in as Denver's WR1 to begin the season.


Falcons coach Dan Quinn is calling Devonta Freeman a "full go" for training camp. (Source: D. Orlando Ledbetter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "He's having such an awesome off-season" were some of Quinn's exact words. Freeman dealt with a plethora of injuries last season, which included his knee, groin, and foot. Still just 27 years old, Freeman has a chance for a lot of run this year with Tevin Coleman gone to San Francisco.


The Seahawks released Baldwin with a failed physical designation. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Baldwin's NFL career could be over after the veteran wide receiver underwent three surgeries to repair shoulder, knee and sports hernia injuries. The diminutive 30-year-old put together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2015-16 but was limited to 50 catches for 718 yards and five scores in 13 games last season.


Bryce Love (knee) is aiming to return in the middle of training camp. (Source: Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: Love tore his ACL last season and there were reports leading up to the draft that NFL teams were worried about stiffness in his knee. That didn't stop Washington from using a fourth-round pick on the 21-year-old. Compared to other reports this timetable sounds optimistic. We don't have a ton of hope for him being fantasy relevant to begin his pro career. The Redskins also have Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson, and Samaje Perine on the roster.


Redskins coach Jay Gruden says Derrius Guice (ACL) could be ready before training camp begins. (Source: John Keim on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Washington had been targeting training camp as a possible return date for Guice so it's encouraging to hear he could be ready even sooner. It's worth noting Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier this weekend that Gucie was coming along slower than anticipated. He'll compete with Adrian Peterson for carries in the Washington backfield.


Marqise Lee will not be ready for action until late in the preseason according to head coach Doug Marrone. (Source: Daniel Popper on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lee continues to recover from a knee injury that he suffered during preseason last year. When healthy, he's the clear No. 1 receiver for Jacksonville after disappointing seasons from Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole.
