Burrow is expected to see some playing time during the preseason as well.

The Miami Dolphins are expected to host veteran edge rusher Emmanuel Ogbah for a workout on Monday. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After Shaquil Barrett surprised with an unexpected retirement on July 20, the Dolphins turned around quickly to find a replacement option on the edge. Miami will be without Jaelan Phillips (Achilles) and Bradley Chubb (ACL) to start the season and need veteran bodies on the edge so they won't have to rely as heavily on rookies Chop Robinson and Mo Kamara. Ogbah played 57 games in Miami from 2020-2023 before being released on Feb. 23, 2024.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, the league's reigning MVP, was sent home from practice early due to an illness. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This should not leave fantasy managers with any concern. July 21 marked Day 1 of the Ravens' training camp, and their preseason does not start until Aug. 9. Jackson has had a history of dealing with illnesses regularly, but it has never led to any major concerns. He is currently being drafted as the QB4, according to FantasyPros' ADP data.

Kadarius Toney was seen working with the Chiefs running backs at practice on Sunday. (Source: Adam Teicher on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is an interesting development and could be worth monitoring. It had been rumored earlier in July that Toney could be on the trade block, but it seems unlikely that a trade will happen. It'll be worth monitoring to see if he continues to practice with the running backs or if it's just for one day.

CeeDee Lamb is reportedly being prioritized over Dak Prescott in contract talks by the Cowboys. (Source: Calvin Watkins on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lamb is not expected to report to training camp without a new deal. This will remain a situation to monitor to see if the two sides can reach an agreement on a new deal.

Rookie RB MarShawn Lloyd is reportedly expected to make an early impact for the Packers. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Lloyd was selected with the No. 88 overall pick in April. Green Bay also brought in Josh Jacobs to be the lead back, but it sounds like Lloyd may have a bigger role than AJ Dillon in the backfield.

Caleb Williams is expected to get "ample run" in the Bears preseason games. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The Bears worked out a plan to get Williams reps in their preseason games in August. "Haven't made any decisions but we certainly want to get him some reps," coach Matt Eberflus said. "I know the guys last year [2023 first-round QBs C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young and Anthony Richardson] got 45 to 55 reps in terms of those guys. We're looking right in that range. We'll see, but again, it's always week to week because you have to see what the health of your line is and where everybody is. But certainly, all those exposures are equally as valuable." It appears like Chicago won't hold back too much in giving the No. 1 pick reps in August.

Drake Maye reportedly needs to be the "clear winner" in the quarterback competition in Patriots camp to start Week 1. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: It was reported that Jacoby Brissett is taking all of the first-team reps at quarterback to begin camp. Maye should still get his chance to prove himself, but he'll have to dominate to have a chance to start to open the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: It is not a huge surprise as Brissett was labeled the starter for New England entering training camp. Drake Maye should also get his chance to prove himself over the next few weeks.

Dameon Pierce is reportedly impressing early in Texans camp. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: With Houston bringing in Joe Mixon this offseason, Pierce figures to back him up unless he can perform well enough in training camp to make it a 1A/1B situation. It'll be worth monitoring over the next few weeks, but for now Pierce will likely be the handcuff for fantasy managers with Mixon.

Fantasy Impact: Shaheed received a tender for the 2024 season earlier this offseason. The $5.2 million he received is for the 2025 season. He'll have the chance to step into a clear WR2 role for the Saints, giving him some late-round appeal in fantasy drafts.
