Trent Richardson

IND -RB

Richardson back at practice

Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) was back at practice on Wednesday.  He ended up missing just a few days, which isn't a big deal by itself.  But Richardson needs to prove he can stay healthy this summer, in addition to improving his efficiency in the offense.  T-Rich's ADP is currently sitting at 5.08 in 12-team PPR drafts.  He's a risk/reward pick at that price.

Brandon Bostick

Bostick getting "lots of work" with starters

Packers insider Rob Demovsky notes that TE Brandon Bostick got "lots of work" with the starters on Wednesday.  "I'd say he delivered," Demovsky added.  After practice, GM Ted Thompson said that the team is "excited about [Bostick's] progress."  Rookie TE Richard Rodgers created lots of buzz in spring practices, but his star has faded a bit early in camp.  The starting job in Green Bay remains wide open.  We'll continue to keep a close eye on it because the winner will be an intriguing WR2.

David Wilson

NYG -RB

Wilson will be evaluated next week

Giants RB David Wilson's neck will be reevaluated on Monday (Aug. 4).  He'll be sidelined at least until then and will miss the team's preseason opener on Sunday night.  After undergoing neck surgery last January, he made it about 1 week in camp before suffering a setback.  We won't guess as to how long he'll be sidelined this time, but fantasy owners should only be drafting him as a late-round flier.

Zach Sudfeld

NYJ -TE

Sudfeld a possible starter?

Jets TE Zach Sudfeld has taken 1st team reps in training camp.  Per Rex Ryan, Sudfeld is "studying like nobody's business."  The 25-year-old received a ton of hype last offseason as a possible short-term fill-in for Rob Gronkowski. But he didn’t catch a single pass in a Pats uniform. Still, Jets rookie Jace Amaro has struggled all offseason, while Jeff Cumberland isn’t a special talent.  At 6’7, 260 pounds, Sudfeld certianly has the size to become a red zone threat.  We just added him to our 2014 TE rankings.

Geno Atkins

CIN -DL

4 hours ago

Atkins returns

Doctors have cleared Bengals DT Geno Atkins to return to action, and the team has removed him from the PUP.  Atkins has been out since tearing his right ACL in Week 9 last season.  Expect the Bengals to bring him along slowly, especially considering the importance of Atkins as arguably the league's #1 interior pass-rusher.  If he's anywhere close to 100%, he'll provide a big boost to the Cincinnati defense and be worth a gamble in DT-specific slots on your fantasy football team.  His ceiling is much more limited for general DL use in the 2014 IDP rankings.

Arian Foster

HOU -RB

Foster returns to practice

Texans RB Arian Foster returned to practice on Wednesday.  He ended up missing just 2 days with that bum hamstring.  It obviously wasn't a serious injury, but it's a good reminder that Foster is one of the bigger injury risks in fantasy football.  He's a boom-or-bust pick at his current 2.12 ADP.

Michael Crabtree

SF -WR

Kaepernick: Crabtree "a step or 2 quicker"

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick says WR Michael Crabtree looks "a step or 2 quicker" this year than he did last.  “He has a burst out of his routes," Kaepernick added.  "He has burst when he catches the ball. (He) looks really good out there.” Crabtree returned for the final 8 games of last season (playoffs included) but was still only 8 months removed from his torn Achilles when San Francisco's season ended in the NFC Championship.  That's an injury that usually takes at least a full year to fully recover from, so it's no surprise that Crabtree is looking better this offseason.  At 100%, Crabtree is a WR2 with upside.  

Ronnie Hillman

DEN -RB

Hillman working as #2 RB

Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman has "usually" been running as the #2 RB early in camp, according to insider Andrew Mason.  RB C.J. Anderson has widely been considered the favorite to win the backup job behind Montee Ball, but it sounds like Hillman is #2 on the depth chart right now.  "He's quicker and more decisive when there's a hole in front of him," Mason says of Hillman.  The battle for the #2 job in Denver is worth tracking closely.  The winner could see 100+ touches and would be a fantasy starter if Ball goes down.

DeMarcus Lawrence

DAL -DL

Lawrence hurts ankle

Rookie Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence limped off the practice field with an injury to his right foot or ankle Tuesday.  A cart reportedly took him to the locker room, and he was due for X-rays Tuesday night.  "Hopefully it'll be OK," GM Jerry Jones said, per ESPN Dallas.  Obviously, it's not shock that the owner/GM is hoping for the best.  But that comment from Jones plus the fact that Lawrence left the field under his own power could mean a less serious injury than the presence of a cart might imply.  The team hopes the 2nd-round pick will play a key role on D, perhaps taking over DeMarcus Ware's old right DE spot.  We'll see how severe the injury is.

Steven Jackson

ATL -RB

20 hours ago

Jackson has hamstring strain

Falcons RB Steven Jackson has a strained hamstring.  It's to the opposite hamstring he injured last season, according to HC Mike Smith.  Smith added that he doesn't believe it's a serious injury and that he expects Jackson to be back for Week 1.  Still, this is a bad start to the season for a guy with all the makings of a RB about to fall off the cliff.  Jackson turns 31 soon, leads all active RBs with 2,552 career carries and averaged a career-worst 3.5 yards per carry last season.  We're only drafting Steve Jax as a RB3.  We'll see if rookie RB Devonta Freeman can take advantage of Jackson's absence and earn a significant Week 1 role.
