Carlos Hyde, RB SF

59 minutes ago

Hyde "looks tremendous"

49ers GM John Lynch said Thursday that RB Carlos Hyde changed his physique to fit the team's offense. (We're assuming this means he dropped weight in preparation for HC Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme.) "He looks tremendous," Lynch said. It's a rare piece of positive news on Hyde this offseason. Lynch had previously questioned his fit in Shanny's offense; insider Grant Cohn reported that Hyde struggled in spring workouts; and the 'Niners added rookie Joe Williams to the backfield. Hyde is still the favorite to lead this backfield in touches, but it'll be a situation worth monitoring throughout August.

Bears WR Cameron Meredith (thumb) has avoided the PUP list and was on the field for the team's 1st training camp practice on Thursday. He injured a thumb ligament on June 1 but is evidently good to go now. Meredith seems to have a starting spot secured after last year's impressive 66-catch, 888-yard campaign. He's a fine value at his 8th-round price tag.

Browns WR Corey Coleman told reporters on Thursday that he's been cleared for the start of training camp. The 2016 first-rounder missed minicamp with a sore hamstring -- a problem that's becoming too common. The good news is that he's still locked in to a starting spot in Cleveland, with the potential to emerge as the team's #1 WR. Coleman is a risk/reward fantasy pick.

Broncos HC Vance Joseph announced that RB Devontae Booker will undergo surgery to repair his fractured wrist on Friday. He's expected to miss 6 weeks, which would have Booker back a few days before Week 1. Joseph expects him to be ready for the start of the regular season. Still, the missed camp and preseason time will make Booker a non-option in fantasy lineups early on.

Panthers QB Cam Newton threw in Wednesday's training camp session. He threw with teammates earlier this month, but this was his 1st time chucking it around in a formal practice since undergoing shoulder surgery in March. "Another step in the process,'' Newton said. "It's a start. Everything felt good, but we have a long way to go to get where I know we can be." Barring a setback, the shoulder shouldn't be an issue by the time Week 1 rolls around.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is a full-go for the start of training camp. "No limits that I'm aware of," HC Bill Belichick said. Gronk participated in spring workouts and has had a smooth recovery from December back surgery. He remains an elevated injury risk but is also still the clear top TE in fantasy football whenever he's on the field. Plus, he's cheaper than he's been in a while, going in the late 2nd round of 12-team PPR drafts.

Broncos RB Devontae Booker has been diagnosed with a fractured wrist. The injury reportedly occurred during OTAs in June but wasn't discovered until Booker had it looked at when he reported to training camp on Wednesday. Insider Mike Klis hears the injury might cost Booker the "first game or 2 of the regular season." Pro Football Talk has a similar timeline, with Booker out "up to 6-8 weeks." It's a tough break for a guy who seemed to be building momentum and making a push for the starting job. He's now a long shot to make a fantasy impact before October at the earliest. Booker's injury strengthens C.J. Anderson's grip on the lead role and removes 1 hurdle between Jamaal Charles and a return to fantasy relevance.

Eagles insider Geoff Mosher believes the team's slot job is Nelson Agholor's "to lose." The former 1st-rounder reportedly had an impressive spring filling in for WR Jordan Matthews (knee) with the 1st-team offense. "He showed reliable hands, excellent route-running and, most importantly, a newfound confidence that had been lacking in his rookie and sophomore seasons," Mosher writes. It's unclear if Agholor claiming the slot job would kick Matthews outside or out of the starting lineup altogether. (Alshon Jeffery is locked in, and the Eagles also added Torrey Smith this offseason.) We're also not yet completely buying Agholor's emergence based on pad-less spring practices. It'll certainly be a situation to watch over the next few weeks, though. Jeffery is the only reasonably safe pick in Philly's WR corps right now.

The Bills have shipped QB Cardale Jones to the Chargers in exchange for a conditional 7th-round pick. Jones was drafted by Buffalo's old regime and was 4th on the depth chart this spring. He'll battle for backup duties in Los Angeles -- with an outside shot of becoming Philip Rivers' eventual successor. The Bills are left with T.J. Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman behind Tyrod Taylor.

Bucs RB Jeremy McNichols has been cleared for the start of training camp after offseason shoulder surgery. He has catching up to do after missing all of spring workouts. There's some opportunity in Tampa's backfield with Doug Martin suspended for the first 3 games, but McNichols is at least behind Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims right now.
