Bowles on Chris Godwin's return: Buccaneers 'not getting our hopes up'

According to head coach Todd Bowles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin "is a long way from returning to a full practice routine".

What It Means:

Despite today's participation in wide receiver drills and his overall impressive recovery from his ACL injury, Godwin reportedly still has a few hurdles to clear before he will be able to practice fully or play in a real game situation. Expect Russell Gage and Julio Jones to see more snaps behind Mike Evans until the 26-year old is ready to go. Per Fantasy Football Calculator in 12-team point per reception, Godwin's average draft position currently stands in fifth round.

Godwin's current yearly projection includes 90.9 receptions for 993.4 yards on 129.4 targets.

Kansas City's Skyy Moore (hip) practicing on Wednesday

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore (hip) was a participant in Wednesday's practice.

What It Means:

After Kansas City's second round pick was forced to leave Tuesday's practice with a hip injury, Moore was able to respond quickly by participating in today's session. If the rookie wideout can continue his successful training camp, expect Moore to see major playing time on the outside in a potential committee approach to replace Tyreek Hill. Per Fantasy Football Calculator in 12-team point per reception leagues, the 21-year old's average draft position stands in the 12th round.

Moore's current 2022 yearly projection includes 43.4 receptions for 564.7 yards and 4.8 touchdowns on 70.2 targets.

Cowboys' James Washington (foot) to miss at least two months

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver James Washington suffered a foot injury in training camp and is expected to miss two months.

What It Means:

Washington got tied up with a defender during a drill at Cowboys training camp earlier in the day, and further testing revealed that the veteran receiver fractured a bone in his foot in the accident. He seems unlikely at this point to suit up for Week 1.

Washington's absence could open up opportunities for rookie Jalen Tolbert, a third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Our models project quarterback Dak Prescott to throw for 4,447 yards this season, meaning Tolbert could be a fantasy gem if he can earn enough looks from Prescott.

Bengals' Joe Burrow recovering from appendectomy

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (appendectomy) will be "back in when he's ready," per head coach Zac Taylor.

What It Means:

Burrow is recovering from an appendectomy that he underwent last week. “I don’t have any timetable,” Taylor said. “We’re just trying to give him some privacy, and I’m sure he’ll be back in when he’s ready.” There isn't any concern about Burrow's availability for Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 11. Last season, Burrow led the league in yards per attempt (8.9) and adjusted yards per attempt (9.0) among qualified starters. His touchdown rate also jumped up from 3.2% his rookie season to 6.5% last year while ranking 15th in total pass attempts.

Burrow is the QB9 in numberFire's preseason rankings. Our models project him for 4,544.1 passing yards, 30.65 touchdowns and 7.4 interceptions, with 286.2 rushing yards and 2.44 touchdowns. In 2021, Burrow tied for seventh with Justin Herbert in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back (0.23), which was more than double the league average (0.10).

Broncos activate receiver K.J. Hamler (ACL, hip) off of PUP list

The Denver Broncos have activated wide receiver K.J. Hamler (ACL, hip) off of the PUP list.

What It Means:

Hamler dislocated his hip and suffered a torn ACL on the same play back in Week 3 of the 2021 NFL season, but appears to be on track for Week 1 of the 2022 season. While he will have to compete for targets alongside Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and Tim Patrick (not to mention the Broncos' tight ends), Hamler's strength as a field stretcher would seem to mesh well with new quarterback Russell Wilson's top-notch deep-passing abilities on paper.

Hamler enters the season as numberFire's WR136 for fantasy this season, but he could shine as a potential late-round dart throw in season-long leagues, especially if the Broncos' offense lives up to expectations.
