Jamison Crowder could see more targets than Terrelle Pryor in Washington

Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder "definitely" will be targeted more than Terrelle Pryor, believes Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic.

What It Means:

Tandler was asked if Pryor will lead the team in receiving yards, but he believes Crowder or Jordan Reed are more likely candidates. Either way, Crowder seems to have a good chance to exceed 100 receptions this season in Washington's offense. He's currently going in the fifth round of drafts in PPR formats.

numberFire's models aren't as high on Crowder, projecting him to catch 67-of-105 catches for 826 yards and 6.2 touchdowns in 2017. Pryor is pegged for 66-of-129 grabs for 1,025 receiving yards and 6.4 scores.

Michael Floyd expected to make Vikings' 53-man roster

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd is expected to make the team's 53-man roster, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Matt Vensel.

What It Means:

Days before his house arrest was set to end, Floyd was found to have consumed alcohol and, therefore, was sentenced to one day in jail for violating his probation. All the same, the Vikings have stuck behind Floyd's claim that the alcohol came in the form of Kombucha tea, which he did not know contained alcohol.

Floyd is projected for 223 receiving yards and a single touchdown this upcoming season, according to our models. Those numbers would place him fourth among Vikings receivers.

Latavius Murray expects to "be the guy" in Vikings backfield

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray said that he expects to "be the guy" in the Minnesota backfield this season.

What It Means:

In an appearance on Good Morning Football, Murray expanded on his thoughts, saying that this is his time. After missing the Vikings' offseason program, it's highly unlikely that Murray starts out the season ahead of rookie Dalvin Cook.

According to our algorithms, Murray -- with projections of 748 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns -- has the edge over Cook, who our algorithms like to produce more touchdowns (5) but just 627 yards on 25 less rushes.

Vikings claim Michael Floyd will remain on roster

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd will remain on the club's roster and report for training camp, according to general manager Rick Spielman, who claims the organization "believes" in the recently-signed free agent.

What It Means:

Floyd was sentenced to one day in jail in Arizona on Monday, the result of him foolishly consuming alcohol just days before his house arrest sentence was set to expire earlier this month. He'll almost certainly be suspended by Roger Goodell for the start of the season. Despite Spielman's vote of confidence, the 27-year-old Floyd isn't guaranteed a spot on the Vikings' final 53-man roster.

numberFire's models currently rank Floyd outside of the top-100 fantasy receivers for this upcoming season. We project him to catch 16.72 passes for 223 receiving yards and 1.32 touchdowns for Minnesota in 2017.

Cam Newton says Panthers don't need him to always be playmaker

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he has realized he does not have to "always be the playmaker."

What It Means:

"I have to give other people opportunities to make plays," Newton said in an insightful piece about his growth. "That's the hardest thing about maturation, especially for me." He acknowledged the need to focus on "getting the ball out of my hands" in an offense that will utilize more quick passes than in recent years. Newton is a strong bounce-back candidate after arguably the worst season of his NFL career.

numberFire's models project Newton for 3,693 passing yards, 24.48 touchdowns, and 13.46 interceptions on 526 attempts this year, adding 528 rushing yards and 5.13 touchdowns on 92 carries. He's our seventh-best quarterback for fantasy purposes.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
