Raiders' Jalen Richard could have receiving workload lessened in 2019

Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard could reportedly lose a share of his targets to rookie back Josh Jacobs, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic.

What It Means:

The Raiders selected Jacobs out of Alabama with the No. 24 pick in the drat, showing how much they think of his potential. He'll likely be utilized often in his rookie season, and that could come at Richard's expense.

Our models project Richard for 40.88 carries, 41.02 receptions, 503.07 all-purpose yards and 2.09 total touchdowns.

Demarcus Robinson could see larger role for Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson will be asked to replace Chris Conley on offense this season, writes Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Conley, who signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason, only saw a 9.2 percent target share with the Chiefs in 2018, but he played 74.7 percent of the snaps. Robinson, meanwhile, saw less than half as much action. Patrick Mahomes praised Robinson for his ability to get open when plays break down and they've been working on their deep-ball connection. Tyreek Hill's pending off-field situation and Sammy Watkins' inability to stay healthy could create even more opportunity for Robinson.

Robinson is currently just inside the top-100 receivers in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to catch 26.8 passes on 43.9 targets for 348.9 yards and 1.85 touchdowns, but that doesn't account for a potential Hill suspension or injury to Watkins.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) avoids PUP list to open camp

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') has avoided the active/PUP list to open training camp.

What It Means:

Sanders will still be eased into things, but this is a great sign for his Week 1 availability. The veteran wideout turned 32 in March.

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.

Phillip Lindsay (wrist) leading Broncos' backfield to start camp

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay took the handoff on the first team rep of training camp.

What It Means:

This confirms Vic Fangio's claim on Wednesday that Lindsay is back to full health. It also indicates he remains ahead of Royce Freeman on the depth chart, though the Broncos may utilize more of a timeshare between the two sophomores next season.

Lindsay is the RB18 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to rush 203.5 times for 1,018.1 yards and 7.20 touchdowns, with 37.0 receptions for 263.0 yards and 0.84 touchdowns.

Falcons' Austin Hooper ready for next step

Atlanta Falcons contract-year tight end Austin Hooper is "ready to go to another level" with his play in 2019, believes head coach Dan Quinn.

What It Means:

“He is a threat in this offense,” added respected position coach Mike Mularkey, who the Falcons brought in this offseason to coach tight ends. Hooper set career-bests across the board in 2018 with 71 receptions for 660 yards and 4 touchdowns.

numberFire's models expect Hooper to catch 59.6 passes on 74.0 targets for 549.6 yards and 5.75 touchdowns in 2019. He's currently the TE11 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
