Emmanuel Sanders 'definitely not full go' for Broncos' camp
Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') said he's "definitely not going to be full-go from the jump" in training camp.
"I want to be ready for Week 1," Sanders added. He will steadily be eased into things leading up to the start of the regular season, so this will be something worth keeping an eye on.
Assuming he plays every game, numberFire's models expect Sanders to catch 52.9 passes on 87.6 targets for 612.9 yards and 3.60 touchdowns in 2019. He's currently the WR60 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
Broncos' Phillip Lindsay (wrist) says he's 100 percent
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (wrist) said he will be "100 percent" for the start of training camp on Thursday.
Lindsay underwent surgery on his wrist this offseason but is declaring himself ready to go. The Broncos are still expected to take it easy with the second-year back this preseason, opening the door for more touches for Royce Freeman.
Our models project Lindsay for 240.6 total touches, 1,281.1 yards, and 8.0 touchdowns in 2019.
Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott reportedly planning camp holdout
Profootballtalk.com reports that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has "privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract."
Elliott has two years remaining on his rookie deal but just like Melvin Gordon, he believes he needs a pay raise. With the workload the Cowboys put on Zeke, it makes sense the running back wants to re-work his deal. With training camp starting next week, we will see if the validity of the rumors are true, very soon
Our models project Elliott as the number-two back in fantasy for 2019 with 2,067.2 total yards and 14.7 touchdowns.
Washington's Derrius Guice (hamstring) reportedly questionable for the start of training camp
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice is reportedly questionable for the start of training camp after suffering a hamstring injury.
According to 106.7 The Fan, Guice's injury reportedly occurred "a few weeks ago" but regardless of the timing this is not good news. It would probably be smart to fade Guice in all fantasy formats until the young running back can show he is fully healthy.
For the 2019 season, our models project Guice to rush for 783.02 yards and 4.32 touchdowns on 170.79 attempts.
Jets' Chris Herndon suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy
New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon will be suspended four games this season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Herndon will miss four games in 2019 after his DUI arrest last June. Expect the young tight end to return in Week 6 with the Jets' bye during Week 4.
For the upcoming season, our models project Herndon to produce 49.0 receptions for 567.6 yards and 5.1 touchdowns.
Agent says Chargers' Melvin Gordon could hold out into season
Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon's agent said there is a "strong possibility" his client will hold out into the season barring a new contract or trade.
Gordon is currently scheduled to earn $5.6 million in 2019, the final year of his rookie contract. He said he will demand a trade and skip training camp if he does not receive a new contract.
If Gordon plays in 2019, our models project to him to rush for 1,120.48 yards and 11.05 touchdowns, while also catching 63.29 passes for 598.50 yards and 3.43 touchdowns.
