Justin Fields showcases improved mechanics

Fantastic impact: There was a lot of doubt surrounding Fields coming out of the 2021 NFL Draft. His true completion percentage of 62.8% last season ranked No. 33 by PlayerProfiler. It will be interesting to see how Luke Getsy’s system changes this offense that still doesn’t look great on paper. While there are certainly some intriguing pieces to the Bears’ offense, the majority of Fields’ fantastic production will likely still come in the current game.

CeeDee Lamb (hamstring) should be ready for training camp

Fantastic impact: Lamb is expected to return after missing Cowboys minicamp, so it seems the injury was never too bad. Dallas has talked about potentially using him more like Deebo Samuel in the running game. He will certainly have the opportunity to see many more targets this season with the departure of Amari Cooper.

Skyy Moore should be at full speed by training camp

Fantastic impact: Moore suffered a hamstring injury before rookie minicamp. He’s starting to come full speed back to Chiefs minicamp this month and should be fully healthy for training camp next month. While Travis Kelce will likely remain Patrick Mahomes’ technical WR1, the Chiefs’ wide receiver core is wide open this year. The rookie is in a position to potentially make an immediate impact if he can stay healthy.

However, Valdes-Scantling will have an edge fighting for Reps as the starting perimeter receiver, with most Chiefs receivers vying for slot shots between JuJu Smith-Schuster, Skyy Moore and Mecole Hardman.
I like it the most at cost among the Chiefs WR

Robert Tonyan (knee) not participating in minicamp

Fantastic impact: Tonyan continues to recover from a knee injury after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last season. Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said Tonyan was “ahead of schedule” in his recovery in March. It’s possible he’ll land on the PUP roster at training camp depending on whether he can take the field or not. There are plenty of opportunities opening up in the Packers’ wide receiver core this season with the departures of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Tonyan has the relationship locked in with Aaron Rodgers, but he’ll need to see more targets to not be so dependent on the touchdown from a fantasy football perspective.
