Chargers' Mike Williams (back) may require season-ending surgery

Los Angeles Chargers wideout Mike Williams might need to undergo season-ending surgery to correct a herniated disk, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

What It Means:

Williams has received two epidurals, but it doesn't seem to be getting him any closer to taking the field. If things don't get better quick, the rookie could be forced to miss his first season in the league. If Williams is ruled out for the year that would mean more to go around for Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and all other receiving targets.

Our algorithms project a healthy Williams for 48 catches, 574 yards and 3.5 touchdown grabs in the upcoming season. And with a projection of 82 targets, that's a lot left to account for in the Chargers passing game.

Cardinals and Chris Johnson agree to one-year deal

The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed running back Chris Johnson to a one-year contract.

What It Means:

Even though he was limited to only four games with a groin injury in 2016, Johnson showed promise in his limited time on the field with Arizona. He'll be 32 years old this year, while being used as a reserve back for the Cardinals to spell starter David Johnson in 2017.

Out of running backs with between 25 and 50 touches in 2016, Johnson's 0.05 Net Expected Points per rush, which ranked fifth.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell offered more than $12 million a year

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was offered "over" $12 million per year, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

What It Means:

According to Pelissero's report, the Steelers offered the 25-year-old a three-year deal worth $42 million overall and $30 million over the offer's first two seasons. Bell opted to take the team's franchise tag worth $12.1 million for the 2017 season.

Bell's total of 61.39 Net Expected Points placed him second among all NFL running backs in 2016. This year, we project him for 1,390 rushing yards, 713 receiving yards and 13.5 total touchdowns.

Panthers under Dave Gettleman were not interested in extending Greg Olsen

Ex-Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was "not interested" in giving tight end Greg Olsen an extension, the Charlotte Observer reports.

What It Means:

Per reporter Joseph Person, Gettleman found it unnecessary since Olsen was just given a three-year, $22 million extension in 2015. Olsen has been making noise about a holdout, and owner Jerry Richardson seems to have grown sensitive to the perception that Gettleman was cold-hearted with veteran players. Olsen's odds of getting extended are much greater than they were 24 hours ago.

Our models project Olsen for 985 receiving yards and 6.43 touchdowns on 80 catches, making him the second-best tight end for fantasy in 2017.

Danny Woodhead best receiving back Ravens have had in years

Baltimore Ravens running back Danny Woodhead is the best receiving back the team has had since Ray Rice, quarterback Joe Flacco said.

What It Means:

"Really... we haven't had a type of back that’s quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game," Flacco said. "They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that." The Ravens lost both tight end Dennis Pitta and receiving fullback Kyle Juszczyk this offseason, and these comments suggest Flacco will be looking for him. Also a threat in the red zone, Woodhead is being undervalued in fantasy formats.

Our models project Woodhead for 367 rushing yards and 2.84 touchdowns on 80 attempts, with 51 catches for 464 receiving yards and 0.93 touchdowns.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
