Packers pick up Michael Roberts
The Green Packers signed tight end Michael Roberts off waivers.
Roberts was released by the Detroit Lions last week after a trade to the New England Patriots was reverted due to a failed physical. The oft-injured 2017 fourth-round pick will compete for a roster spot behind Jimmy Graham and third-rounder Jace Sternberger.
Roberts has 13 career receptions (27 targets) for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Parris Campbell should see time as the Colts' third receiver
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell "should be in the mix for No. 3 wide receiver playing time/touches as a rookie" according to 1070 The Fan.
Campbell is expected to contribute as the Colts' third receiver during his rookie season despite playing behind starters T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess. Expect the speedy wideout to play a major role this year despite the wealth of receiving options.
For the 2019 season, our models project Campbell to produce 38.6 receptions for 486.2 yards and 3.2 touchdowns.
Chargers' Mike Williams ready for 'expanded role' in 2019
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams expects to have an "expanded role" in the 2019 passing game.
With Tyrell Williams' departure this off-season, the 24-year old wideout is expecting to see more targets and playing time in 2019. “My role is going to expand with Tyrell leaving. I’m ready to make some plays this upcoming season,” said Williams. "I feel I’m going to get a lot more opportunities than I did last year. A lot more balls coming my way.”
For the 2019 season, our models project Williams to produce 55.5 receptions for 809.7 yards and 7.2 touchdowns. In 16 games last year, the Chargers' receiver hauled in 43 receptions for 664 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette expects to have a role in 2019 passing game
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette expects to have an opportunity to catch passes in 2019 according to quarterback Nick Foles.
"That’s a threat. If you ask any defender, when a running back can go out of the backfield and not only run the ball and protect, but he can receive, that’s really tough on a defense," said Foles to the media.
On 74 targets in Fournette's career, the Jaguars' back has produced 58 receptions for 487 yards and two touchdowns. If he can stay healthy, look for Fournette to produce workhorse or RB1 fantasy numbers.
Rams will extend Jared Goff, coach says
Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said there is a "zero percent chance" the team does not extend quarterback Jared Goff's contract.
'Whether it ends up happening this year or next year, there is a zero pct. chance this guy's not gonna get an extension he's worthy of," McVay told Mike Silver. Goff threw for 4,688 yards and 32 touchdowns with 12 interceptions and averaged 7.5 net yards per dropback. His play did decline somewhat down the stretch, as only completed 58.9% of his throws with 6 touchdowns and 6 interceptions in five December starts.
Our models project Goff to throw for 4,765.40 yards with 32.47 touchdowns and 11.34 interceptions in 2019.
Theo Riddick could be on the Lions' roster bubble
Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick could be on the roster bubble, per the Detroit Free Press.
Riddick is on the final year of his contract and his release would produce $3.7 million in cap savings. He was targeted 71 times last season, which was second on the team, but only managed 370 receiving yards on 57 catches.
Our models project Riddick to rush for 174.9 yards on 45.26 carries, while catching 51.07 passes for 358.66 yards.
