Rams' Pharoh Cooper: Will have plenty of competition in 2017
Pharoh Cooper, WR, LAR

News: Cooper could struggle to see the field again in 2017 because of his unknown role in the offense, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

The Rams added two wide receivers and a tight end in the 2017 draft, and with a new coaching regime, Cooper's fit in the offense is completely up in the air. He caught 14 of 20 targets for just 106 yards during his rookie campaign, and the Gamecock product probably won't ever make it as a traditional outside receiver. Additionally, with Tavon Austin likely the better option out of the slot and for gadget plays, Cooper could have a steep uphill climb to fantasy relevance as a Ram. Still, Cooper is talented and boasts big-play ability, so it's too early in his career to write him off.

Tyler Higbee
Rams' Tyler Higbee: Might be heavily involved
Tyler Higbee, TE, LAR
6:40 PM
News: Higbee could have a sizable role with new head coach Sean McVay's offense significant involvement of its tight ends, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

As the offensive coordinator for Washington the past three years, McVay leaned on Jordan Reed whenever he was healthy, and his backups were also able to provide serviceable fantasy results when Reed was injured. Higbee has the physical tools needed to succeed at the highest level, but the Los Angeles offense will have to prove it can get out of its own way before the second-year tight end lands on the fantasy radar. Additionally, the Rams also added Gerald Everett in the second round of the 2017 draft, so Higbee could be leapfrogged on the depth chart, if he hasn't been already.

C.J. Beathard
49ers' C.J. Beathard: Not expected to start
C.J. Beathard, QB, SF
5:10 PM
News: Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that Beathard will not compete for a starting job as a rookie, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Despite spending a third-round draft pick on the quarterback out of Iowa, the 49ers are committed to developing the young arm behind the seasoned veteran, Brian Hoyer. Beathard could potentially wind up on the practice squad if both Hoyer and Matt Barkley enter camp healthy. While the rookie doesn't have the characteristics of a high-end fantasy quarterback, working with Shanahan -- who has gotten the most out of his quarterbacks -- could result in some fantasy-friendly performances down the road.

Brian Hoyer
49ers' Brian Hoyer: Remains starter despite team drafting QB
Brian Hoyer, QB, SF
4:28 PM
News: Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that Hoyer is still the team's starting quarterback despite taking C.J. Beathard in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Beathard was considered a developmental draft selection, so Hoyer's starting job is in no danger and Shanahan confirmed that sentiment Friday. The journeyman quarterback has shown flashes of fantasy usefulness over the past few seasons, but injuries have always cut the 32-year-old's seasons short. Health and inconsistent results will keep veteran's value depressed heading into drafts next season, but there is some potential for a career year under Shanahan, who Hoyer threw for a career-high 3,326 yards in 2014 when both were with the Browns.

Myles Garrett
Browns' Myles Garrett: Dealt with ankle injury last season
Myles Garrett, DE, CLE
3:37 PM
News: Garrett said he was only 75 percent healthy during his final year in college due to an ankle injury, according to ESPN.com.

One of the biggest knocks on Garrett coming out of Texas A&M was his lack of effort on certain plays. As it turns out, an ankle injury could have been the main culprit for that. According to the report, Garrett said he lost some explosiveness and wasn't himself. Still, that didn't stop the Browns from making him the first overall pick. The report didn't mention if Garrett's ankle is fully healthy, so that's something to keep an eye on as training camp nears.

David Njoku
Browns' David Njoku: In line to start in 2017?
David Njoku, TE, CLE
3:26 PM
News: With Gary Barnidge being released shortly after Njoku's arrival, the door is open for Njoku to start right away in 2017.

Njoku joins Seth DeValve, Randall Telfer as the team's only tight ends on the roster and immediately becomes the favorite to dominant snaps in 2017. DeValve caught 10 passes for 127 yards and two scores in 2016, while Telfer finished the year with just two receptions. Those lackluster performances, along with a down year from Barnidge, convinced the Browns to upgrade the position, which they absolutely did with Njoku.

Analysis: 

Cody Kessler
Browns' Cody Kessler: In competition for starting role
Cody Kessler, QB, CLE
3:14 PM
News: Kessler, along with the other quarterback's on the roster, will compete for the starting job, according to Cleveland.com.

Even though the Browns took DeShone Kizer in the second round of the draft, head coach Hue Jackson made it clear Kessler is still very much in the conversation to be the team's starting quarterback. In his rookie campaign, Kessler completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,380 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions across parts of nine games. He showed flashes of potential at times, but ball security was an issue. On the flip side, his knowledge of the offense should give him a leg up on the job as training camp begins.

Analysis: 

DeShone Kizer
Browns' DeShone Kizer: WIll compete for starting gig
DeShone Kizer, QB, CLE
3:01 PM
News: Coach Hue Jackson said Friday that Kizer will have a chance to compete for the starting job, according to Cleveland.com.

The second-round draft pick out of Notre Dame joins quarterbacks Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan and Brock Osweiler on the roster, and it seems each will have a shot to start the season under center. Osweiler and Kessler have the most experience, but neither performed at an especially high level in 2016, giving Kizer a fair chance. As with all rookies, there are many things he needs to improve on to be a successful NFL quarterback, but as of now, his competition is rather weak. However, all of this would change if the Browns finally convince the Patriots to part ways with Jimmy Garoppolo.

Kapri Bibbs
Broncos' Kapri Bibbs: Dealt to 49ers
Kapri Bibbs, RB, DEN
11:46 AM
News: Bibbs was traded to the 49ers on Saturday in exchange for a 2018 fourth round pick, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The Broncos will also send a 2017 fifth-round pick to San Francisco in the deal, giving the Niners three fifth-round selections. Undrafted in 2014, Bibbs has spent the last three years with the Broncos, spending considerable time on the practice squad for two seasons before making the 53-man roster in 2016. Bibbs appeared in 12 games last season, carrying 29 times for 129 yards. He's expected to compete with DuJuan Harris, Mike Davis and Tim Hightower for backup carries behind Carlos Hyde.

James O'Shaughnessy
Patriots' James O'Shaughnessy: Dealt to Patriots for draft pick
James O'Shaughnessy, TE, KC
10:48 AM
News: O'Shaughnessy was traded to the Patriots on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The Chiefs and Patriots worked out a deal that sent O'Shaughnessy and a sixth-round pick to New England to acquire pick No. 183 at the end of the fifth round. O'Shaugnessy does not offer much as a receiver with eight career catches over his first two seasons, but he should be a serviceable blocking tight end in run-heavy formations.
