Fantasy Impact: Rodgers was interviewed at the American Century Classic Celebrity Golf Championship Tournament. We saw flashes of what this Jets team could be capable of last season, but finished 7-10 with Zach Wilson, Trevor Siemian, and Tim Boyle at quarterback. It sounds like Rodgers will be fully healthy heading into training camp.

The Patriots reportedly offered a contract extension to Matthew Judon, but the two sides are not close to an agreement. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Judon enters this season on the final year of his contract. He reported to mandatory minicamp and isn't expected to hold out of training camp. "Right now, I'm just gonna get ready to play," Judon said in June. "You kind of keep throwing tantrums, tantrums, tantrums, and then you don't come out there and do what you're supposed to do? It kind of gets old real fast, you know." This will remain a situation to monitor throughout training camp.

Kyle Philips reportedly could be facing a “make-or-break” scenario heading into training camp. (Source: Nashville Post on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Philips has been limited to just 13 games due to injuries the past couple of seasons. He figures to compete with Jha’Quan Jackson for a role in the slot as well as in the return game in special teams. Both players are likely to remain off the fantasy radar.

Jordan Addison was arrested Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Addison was arrested near the Los Angeles International Airport. There should soon be a further update on the Vikings second-year wide receiver.

Van Jefferson is reportedly the early favorite to be the No. 2 wide receiver in Pittsburgh. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Jefferson signed a one-year deal with the Steelers this offseason. With the departure of Diontae Johnson, the wide receiver room is wide open after George Pickens. Rookie Roman Wilson could also factor into the passing game for the Steelers.

Audric Estime is expected to be a "full go" for training camp. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: The Broncos running back underwent a minor knee scope earlier in the offseason. He is expected to compete for a legitimate role in the backfield for Denver. He'll be a player to monitor regarding the fantasy value of Javonte Williams.

Ja’Lynn Polk has a chance to be the Patriots No.1 wideout in 2024, according to an article by The Athletic. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: The article did clarify his status as the No.1 target for the Patriots could depend on the health of Kendrick Bourne, who seems to be the favorite for the lead role at the time of writing. However, Bourne hasn’t done much since flashing during his first year in New England and a couple of good games last year before suffering an ACL tear. Polk was also drafted early in the second round by the new coaching staff, so it’s clear they have plans for him. It may take time but Polk will likely supplant Bourne in the future.

Fantasy Impact: Prescott was spotted in a walking boot last week. It was expected to be a precaution and it appears it was. He should be relatively healthy entering training camp.

Leonard Fournette reportedly intends to sign with new team soon. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fournette hired his former agent Ari Nissim and Pat Capra to help in his pursuit. He signed with the Bills in the middle of last season, but only saw 12 carries before he was released.

Kadarius Toney reportedly could be on trade block in Kansas City. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Toney had some troubles last season with the Chiefs that led to him being a healthy scratch in the Super Bowl. It is unclear what other teams might have interest in him, but Toney could use a fresh start with another team.

Aidan O’Connell and Gardner Minshew are expected to split starter snaps in training camp. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: It was reported that O'Connell and Minshew both struggled early in OTAs. The Raiders signed Minshew this offseason, while O'Connell returns after seeing some reps last season under center. This will remain a training camp battle to monitor over the next month and a half.

Cordarrelle Patterson is reportedly likely to have "bigger role than being a specialist." (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Patterson is expected to have a big special teams role with the new return rules. He rushed for 695 yards and eight touchdowns under Arthur Smith last season in Atlanta as well. It is possible he could make the Steelers backfield more messy with Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren also having their roles.

The Titans signed Jamal Adams. (Source: Turron Davenport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Adams is reunited with Dennard Wilson who was his DB coach during his Pro Bowl seasons in 2018 and 2019. After dealing with some injury-riddled seasons in Seattle, Adams was released and now gets a fresh start with the Titans.

Gus Edwards has been labeled the “clear lead back” by a Chargers beat reporter. Edwards has been dealing with an injury but the expectation is he will be healthy for training camp. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: The former Raven has been seen as the favorite for the starting job since joining the team in free agency. Edwards is more an early down bruiser and goalline back and should lead the team in overall touches. However, he doesn’t profile as a third-down option. J.K. Dobbins or rookie Kimani Vidal may see more work in that role over him.

Javonte Williams will need to earn the starting role for the Broncos over 2024 fifth-round pick Audric Estime. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Williams struggled in 2023 coming off of an ACL injury. He simply wasn’t the dynamic back we’ve seen over his first two years in the league. With the new coaching staff in town having drafted a running back of their own, his chances of seeing a workhorse role have lessened. Williams has the talent, but his physical capability to retain the starting role is very much in question. It’s a good but low time for fantasy managers, but it does come with some risk.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Brock Bowers, the team's 2024 first-round pick and incoming rookie, will have to "earn" his opportunities in the passing game "by blocking in the run game," according to Raiders tight ends coach Luke Steckel. (Source: Tashan Reed, The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Despite his draft status as the No. 13 pick, Bowers will still need to earn his role in the passing game, says his position coach, who admits it is an "old-school mentality." Second-year TE Michael Mayer (6'4" and 265 pounds) had a 27-304-2 stat line as a rookie under. Steckel is a part of the new Raiders staff in 2024 after spending 2023 as an OL assistant with the Chicago Bears. Bowers (6'3" and 243 pounds) may have to earn his role as a blocker to see a large snap share as a rookie, though he never had a season with a sub-67.0 PFF run-blocking grade at Georgia.
