Jaylen Samuels not a lock to make Steelers' roster

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Samuels is not a lock to make the 53-man roster, writes Bob Labriola of the Steelers official website.

What It Means:

There appears to be an open competition between Samuels, Benny Snell, Kerrith Whyte, and fourth-round rookie Anthony McFarland for the backup job behind James Conner. Last season, Samuels struggled on the ground (2.7 yards per carry), but he did catch 47 passes on 57 targets for 305 yards and a touchdown.

numberFire's models project Samuels for 47.1 carries, 196.5 rushing yards, 13.5 catches (17.5 targets), 98.1 receiving yards, and 2.0 touchdowns this season. He's the RB68 in our preseason fantasy rankings.

Buccaneers open to Devonta Freeman for right price

Free agent running back Devonta Freeman could be an option for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the right price, head coach Bruce Arians said.

What It Means:

"If his price tag was reasonable," Arians replied when asked about Freeman being on the team's radar. "He's asking for a lot of money and we don't have a lot of money." This indicates the Buccaneers may be looking to add to a backfield that already includes Ronald Jones, third-round rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn, and pass-catching back Dare Ogunbowale. Freeman averaged a career-low 3.6 yards per carry last season and failed to clear 100 yards in 14 games. The 28-year-old back has been limited to just 16 combined appearances over the last two seasons due to multiple injuries.

Freeman averaged 12.0 FanDuel points (RB23) and 76.1 offensive yards with 6 touchdowns in 14 games last season. He managed just a 29.4 percent success rate, compared to 42.7 percent for the rest of the Falcons' backfield. The Bucs ranked 27th as a team in numberFire's advanced rushing metric.

Buccaneers say base offense will be 12 personnel

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said 12 personnel will be the team's base offense.

What It Means:

That means the Buccaneers are frequently going to have two tight ends on the field. Arians added that he even likes using three tight ends on occasion. Rob Gronkowski figures to see the most snaps, but it remains to be seen if O.J. Howard or Cameron Brate will be able to lock down the other starting job. The downside is that this likely means Chris Godwin will see less work in the slot since the Bucs won't be running as many three-wide sets. It also means fewer formations featuring both Ronald Jones and third-round rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn.

Howard is the TE30 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 48.4 targets, 31.2 catches, 361.0 yards and 2.4 touchdowns. Brate (TE51) is pegged for 27.5 targets, 17.5 receptions, 145.1 yards, and 1.5 touchdowns.

Titans' Corey Davis a "big part of the offense"

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis is "a big part of the offense" according to offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

What It Means:

Smith raved about Corey Davis in a zoom call on Wednesday, adding that "there were some huge explosive plays last year that Corey was the unsung hero to...hes a big part of this offense and I think he'll take another step." The fifth overall pick in the 2017 draft, Davis caught 43 of 68 targets (63.2%) for 601 yards (14 per reception) and 2 touchdowns last season. His reception percentage and yards per reception marks were new career-highs, and he also set a career-high in NFL passer rating when targeted at 101.4. Working alongside emerging star A.J. Brown, Davis should see lesser coverage this season, but his volume remains an obstacle in the Titan's run-heavy offense.

Davis is the WR63 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 75.6 targets, 44.4 receptions, 609.1 yards, and 3.4 touchdowns.

Titans confident in Ryan Tannehill and passing offense

Tennessee Titans Offensive Coordinator Arthur Smith expressed his confidence in quarterback Ryan Tannehill and his excitement for the team's passing offense heading into his second season on the job.

What It Means:

Smith told reporters on a zoom call Wednesday that he is "excited about Ryan and where we can go with the passing offense. I feel confident in Ryan. I am excited about the leadership Ryan brings, too." Tannehill had the best season of his career after taking over for Marcus Mariota in week 6, finishing the season as Pro Football Focus' top-graded quarterback. He led the league in yards per attempt (9.6) and was third in completion percentage (70.3%) among quarterbacks with at least 70 attempts. His league-leading passer rating of 114.2 was 20.7 points higher than his previous career-best mark of 93.5 from 2016. It's easy to see why Arthur is excited about the future.

Tannehill is the QB17 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 3,947.1 yards, 24.5 touchdowns, and 12.6 interceptions with another 271.4 yards and 2.5 touchdowns on the ground.
