Fantasy Impact: Coach John Harbaugh does not seem to concerned about Flowers availability for minicamp next week.

According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards is expected to be ready for training camp. He is currently being held out of minicamp for rehab. (Source: Jamison Hensley on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edwards has a long history of dealing with injury, which kept him off the field at the start of 2022. Once he returned to the field, though, Edwards was back to form rushing for 5.0 yards per carry with 433 yards in nine games with four starts. When healthy, Edwards has always been an effective running back but is a more valuable player in real life than in fantasy as the bruising complement to J.K. Dobbins and Lamar Jackson; and if the Ravens phase away from the run-centric offense of the Greg Roman era, Edwards likely won't have much more than TD-dependent flex appeal in 2023.

According to Doug Kyed of AtoZ Sports, the New England Patriots have been using former Louisville QB Malik Cunningham as a slot receiver during offseason workouts. (Source: Doug Kyed on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The position switch could actually make a lot of sense for the undrafted QB. His sub-6-foot height made it an uphill battle for him at QB, but Cunningham, who was one of the nation's best runners, has the feet to move as a wide receiver. The Patriots have never been shy to move players to a receiver, and Cunningham is best suited to play in the slot rather than outside with his 4.53-second 40-yard dash. There's no guarantee that the undrafted rookie makes the roster, but a position change could be his best shot to make an immediate impact in New England.

Commanders coach Ron Rivera said it's still a competition between Sam Howell and Jacoby Brissett. (Source: Sam Fortier on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rivera added that it's a discussion whether or not Brissett will get first-team reps in camp. It contradicts recent reports that suggested it was Howell's job to lose as the starter. This will be a situation to monitor throughout minicamp and training camp.

Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said Josh Jacobs is not under contract (hasn’t signed franchise tag), and therefore is not at mandatory minicamp. (Source: Omar Ruiz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McDaniels still spoke highly of Jacobs & is respectful of this process. It still seems likely Jacobs and the Raiders will agree to terms at some point in the next month or two, but it remains a situation to monitor.

Jeremy Ruckert has reportedly gotten off to a strong start in OTAs. (Source: Harrison Glaser on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "Jeremy Ruckert looks awesome," Jets head coach Robert Saleh said. "He's hungry. He looks like a guy on a mission. He's got a nasty streak to him. Excited about him & the direction he's going." Ruckert is entering his second season in the league. Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah currently sit atop the depth chart for the Jets in the tight end room.

Isaiah Rodgers Sr. issued a statement Monday night admitting to gambling and accepting responsibility. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract this season. He'll face some sort of suspension that will likely be announced soon by the NFL. He has played in 45 games over the past three seasons with the Colts.

According to Demetrius Harvey of, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said that signing WR DeAndre Hopkins is not considered a reality at this time. (Source: Demetrius Harvey,

Fantasy Impact: Pederson praised his WR room, saying it would be hard to add someone of Hopkins' caliber and that he is pleased with his existing group. Jacksonville is expecting the return of WR Calvin Ridley who could be the team's potential WR1 during the expected ascent of QB Trevor Lawrence. As well, the Jaguars have WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, who excelled in 2022. They also added rookie WR Parker Washington during the draft. While it wouldn't be unfathomable to bring in Hopkins, Pederson did not make it seem as though a pairing was likely.

According to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston, the Atlanta Falcons are signing veteran DB Breon Borders. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Borders went undrafted in 2017 and has bounced around from team to team since then, suiting up for six different teams. Borders most notably started five games for Tennessee in 2020, catching his first career interception, forcing five pass deflections and totaling 27 tackles. Borders will compete for a roster spot in an already fairly deep Atlanta DB room.

According to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston, the Atlanta Falcons are releasing DB Jamal Peters. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Peters was a 2022 CFL All-Star cornerback for the Toronto Argonauts before signing a reserve contract with Atlanta in January. Peters is now being released to make room for DB Breon Borders. Peters, a Grey Cup champion, could look toward a return to the CFL which starts on June 8, unless he finds another deal with an NFL team.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, veteran WR Laquon Treadwell has signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Treadwell has played seven seasons in the NFL, suiting up for four different teams. However, Treadwell has never found solid footing with one team, totaling 110 career catches, though he showed promise in 2021 with the Jaguars. His deal with the Ravens will give him a chance to compete during minicamp for a roster spot in Baltimore. The Ravens have Andy Isabella, James Proche II, Tylan Wallace and Dontay Demus Jr., all of whom may compete with Treadwell for an active roster spot in 2023.

According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, QB Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are working toward a contract extension, but owner Jerry Jones said that "it's not imperative" to get it done soon. (Source: Jon Machota on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Prescott has two years left on his deal with the Cowboys with an out after the 2023 season. However, the Cowboys could look to extend Prescott not only to keep him but to spread out the money in a more manageable manner. The team does not seem to be in a rush to do so, but an extension could facilitate the process of extending young stars CeeDee Lamb and Trevon Diggs. An extension will likely come at some point though, given the close history between the parties, it's just unsure when it will happen.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Dallas Cowboys are leaving the door open for a reunion between the team and long-time RB Ezekiel Elliott. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The initial decision to cut Elliott was one made out of 'caponomics,' not any issues between the two parties. Elliott was cut to create cap space, but the Cowboys could still use a player like Elliott. The seven-year Cowboy was toward the top of the league in rushes that converted for positive yards, often avoiding rushes for negative gain. This made him an effective goal-line back, accruing 12 TDs in 2022. The Cowboys do not have a body type that can provide what Elliott does, and with a potentially smaller financial obligation, the Cowboys could move Elliott into more of an efficient, rotational role.

Treylon Burks has received praise from Titans wide receiver coach Rob Moore and Quarterback Ryan Tannehill. After enduring an poor offseason in 2022, Moore said “he’s been a different player.” Tannehill praised his work ethic and drive. (Source: Nashville Post)

Fantasy Impact: It’s early in the off-season, but it’s a night and day comparison to the reports coming out about Burks this time last year. Burks was one of the top wide receiver prospects in last year’s draft, and if he can make a second year leap, he’s easily the Titans top option in the passing game in 2023. If he lives up to his potential, a WR2 season is in the cards for Burks, who should still have a stable floor of a WR3 at worst if he stays healthy.

As was reported by Matt Rybaltowski of Sports Handle, an unnamed player on the Indianapolis Colts is being investigated for placing hundreds of wagers, including on the Colts. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: According to the initial report, the source claims that the player is not considered a superstar, though an “ardent NFL fan has probably heard of him.” The player is also currently on the team’s roster and was placing wagers in both 2022 and 2023. The NFL has made it a priority to crack down on gambling, and the player is likely facing some form of a suspension.

Justin Herbert is planning to participate in 7-on-7 drills amid contract negotiations with the Chargers. (Source: Lindsay Thiry on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Herbert has been recovering from off-season surgery and his return to the field is a good sign for Chargers fans that he is likely to ink a new deal soon. Herbert is one of the best young talents in the game, and fantasy managers should not hesitate to draft him as a sure-fire QB1.

According to Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Rachaad White, there will be a “lot of balls coming [his] way” as he increases his involvement in the team’s passing game. (Source: Fantasy Sports Radio on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: White was candid during his interview with SiriusXM, saying that he has been working on improving his pass-catching abilities with the goal of being more involved in 2023. He said the Buccaneers plan on using more empty looks going forward, allowing White to line up wide as a receiver more often. Despite only starting eight games in 2023, White caught 50 passes for 290 yards. With the former Arizona State product likely taking over lead-back duties, his involvement as a rusher and catcher could lead him to a strong fantasy season in 2023.

According to Coty M. Davis of Texans Daily, RB Dameon Pierce has been improving himself as a pass blocker for the Houston Texans. (Source: Coty M. Davis, Texans Daily)

Fantasy Impact: Pass protection was a glaring weak spot in Pierce’s game that was noted by last year’s head coach Lovie Smith. Now, Pierce is focusing on honing his abilities as a blocker. This would allow Pierce to better become suited to serve a true three-down workload in Houston by protecting rookie QB CJ Stroud. Houston added RB Devin Singletary in the offseason, but if Pierce can find new ways to stay on the field, he could keep Singletary at bay, who is currently better suited to play on third downs.

According to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team, the Dallas Cowboys are releasing WR Antonio Callaway, who was arrested in Florida over the weekend for driving with a suspended license and failure to pay fines. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Callaway hasn’t played in the NFL since 2020 when he took the field as a member of the Miami Dolphins. Callaway has 53 career catches and 695 yards. In Callaway’s place, the Cowboys are signing WR Tyron Johnson to their open minicamp spot.
