Jason Witten, TE DAL

3:05pm EDT 5/24/19

Witten "hasn't lost a step"

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has been impressed by TE Jason Witten this spring. “I guess the trick is to take a year off because he’s definitely gotten better, stronger and faster,” Prescott said. “He hasn’t lost a step.” Witten won't be out-athleting any defenders this season, but it's still nice to hear he's looking good at 37 years old after taking 2018 off. We'll see how he holds up throughout training camp and the season. Witten posted a 63-560-5 line and 9th-place PPR finish when we saw him last in 2017. We'd bet against that level of production this year, but Witten could be a useful spot-start option for fantasy squads.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said RB D'Onta Foreman is making "good progress" as he continues to work back from 2017's torn Achilles. "I think he’s had a really good time away from us, and that’s parlayed into a good spring," O'Brien added. Foreman got back on the field last December and is encouraged by how this offseason has gone. "I’m fluid. I feel good. My mindset is really good right now," he said. "A year ago, I didn’t know what I would be like coming back, if I would ever be the same. I had a lot of stuff going through my mind. Right now, I’m just in a good spirit and looking forward to the season." A healthy Foreman is plenty capable of pushing RB Lamar Miller for work this year. We'll be keeping a close eye on the situation when training camp opens.

Speaking Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league won't interfere with the legal proceedings for Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's child abuse investigation. "We will obviously be cooperative with whatever the court wants," Goodell continued. "We are prepared to go ahead and have an interview whenever we have the permission to do so and then we’ll go ahead and make a determination based on what information we have at that time.” Hill has not been suspended by the league or put on the Commissioner's Exempt List, but the Chiefs have told him to stay away from team activities. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Fantasy owners should be drafting right now as if Hill will be suspended 6+ games.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen has been fully cleared from his right foot trouble, he told reporters Wednesday. Olsen broke that foot in each of the past 2 seasons and ruptured the plantar fascia late last year. We'll see how the 34-year-old holds up the rest of this offseason. A healthy Olsen still has TE1 potential, but he should only be drafted as a bench stash at this point.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has taken part in individual and 7-on-7 drills in OTAs this week but been held out of full-team work. HC Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo won't be fully cleared from last September's torn ACL until training camp. Garoppolo seems happy with his progress, though, noting that he's lifting more and no longer experience swelling in that surgically repaired knee. He'll be over 11 months removed from the injury when the 2019 season kicks off.

The Raiders have signed former Colts TE Erik Swoope. A converted basketball player, Swoope has caught just 23 balls over 5 NFL seasons -- but he's averaged 16.7 yards per catch and scored 4 times. There's theoretical upside here, but time is running out for Swoope to reach it. He at least lands in a wide-open TE group alongside Darren Waller, rookie Foster Moreau and Luke Willson. This will be a position battle to monitor this summer.

Titans TE Delanie Walker says he's at "85%" as he rehabs last September's fractured and dislocated right ankle. "Today I felt fast getting out of my breaks, and I was catching the ball well," he added after Tuesday's OTA. Walker was a full-go in individual drills but did very little in team work, according to the Nashville Tennessean. Prior to last year, Walker had finished as a top-11 TE in 5 straight seasons. He's capable of returning to that level of production if healthy. But the ankle is a real concern for the soon-to-be 35-year-old. We'll keep a close eye on him this summer.

49ers RB Matt Breida has a "slightly" torn pectoral, HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. Breida avoided surgery, and while he'll miss OTAs, he's expected to be ready for training camp. Despite playing on a bum ankle for most of 2018, Breida averaged a big 5.3 yards per carry last year. It'll be interesting to see what kind of role he can carve out in a 2019 backfield that added Tevin Coleman and returns Jerick McKinnon from a torn ACL. Breida is just a late-round flier in early fantasy drafts.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson "had some work done" on his knee this offseason, HC Pete Carroll revealed Tuesday. That's "surgery" in Carroll-speak. Carroll added that Carson will only be out "a couple more weeks," so it sounds like he'll be ready in plenty of time for training camp. Carson's absence creates some added opportunity for Rashaad Penny, but Carson still figures to open camp atop the depth chart.

Bills WR Cole Beasley had core-muscle surgery "a few weeks ago," HC Sean McDermott said Tuesday. McDermott didn't give a timetable for Beasley's return, but he figures to be ready by the time training camp rolls around. We'll keep an eye on him. Beasley looks like a low-upside PPR option for 2019.
