The Tuesday Blitz: News, Notes and Links from Around the NFL
Due to the inconsistency of Denarius Moore, Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune writes, "Rod Streater has been the most consistent player and could emerge as the go-to receiver for Flynn and Co. because they're relatively certain he'll come down with the ball."
Considering DeMarco Murray's lack of durability, the Cowboys backup running back could be a top-20 fantasy option for a few weeks at some point each season. Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram wrote the following: "But second-year veteran Lance Dunbar has zoomed past [rookie Joseph Randle] in camp, and third-year player Phillip Tanner has been more consistent. Randle, who couldn’t practice in the offseason because of a thumb injury, is battling undrafted rookie Kendial Lawrence for snaps and attention."
Titans first-rounder Chance Warmack reached a deal with the team yesterday and now all first-round picks are under contract.
Per Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazzette, Packers rookie running back Jonathan Franklin stood out at the team's first padded practice.
Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb is singing the praises of rookie wide receiver Robert Woods: “Stud. I mean, legitimately a stud. I’ve bragged on him a lot in the last two days and really through camp. I mean, what I see from him, I’ve been with some really good rookie receivers. I mean some really good ones."
