Washington's Derrius Guice (hamstring) reportedly questionable for the start of training camp
Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice is reportedly questionable for the start of training camp after suffering a hamstring injury.
According to 106.7 The Fan, Guice's injury reportedly occurred "a few weeks ago" but regardless of the timing this is not good news. It would probably be smart to fade Guice in all fantasy formats until the young running back can show he is fully healthy.
For the 2019 season, our models project Guice to rush for 783.02 yards and 4.32 touchdowns on 170.79 attempts.

For the upcoming season, our models project Herndon to produce 49.0 receptions for 567.6 yards and 5.1 touchdowns.
Agent says Chargers' Melvin Gordon could hold out into season

Gordon is currently scheduled to earn $5.6 million in 2019, the final year of his rookie contract. He said he will demand a trade and skip training camp if he does not receive a new contract.
If Gordon plays in 2019, our models project to him to rush for 1,120.48 yards and 11.05 touchdowns, while also catching 63.29 passes for 598.50 yards and 3.43 touchdowns.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) is "good to go" for training camp.
Garoppolo spoke to the media on Tuesday and proclaimed his knee is ready for the start of training camp. “The rehab process has gone really well. We haven’t had any setbacks," said the 49ers' quarterback. "We’re moving in the right direction. I’m good to go. Finally."
For the 2019 season, our models project Garoppolo to produce 348.9 completions for 4,052.2 yards and 23.3 touchdowns and rush for 195.9 yards and 2.2 touchdowns. Look for the 27-year old to finally have his breakout season if he can stay healthy.
Chiefs want Damien Williams to be 'the full-time starter for the year'
Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams is expected to start full-time this season.
According to head coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs are expecting Williams to produce in a full-time role as their starting running back after a successful stint in the second half of last season. "He's taken that challenge. He wants to do this thing," said Reid. "He's earned the right to be that guy. And now it's a matter of production."
For the 2019 season, our models project Williams to produce 952.9 rushing yards and 8.5 touchdowns on 205.1 attempts and 421.8 receiving yards and 3.6 touchdowns on 51.8 receptions. Expect Williams to start the season in a three-down role unless we hear otherwise.
Jets' Jamison Crowder looks 'fully healthy'
New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder has looked "extremely quick" and "fully healthy" this off-season.
Crowder is expected to play an important role in the Jets' passing game as the starting slot receiver after signing a multi-year deal in free agency with New York. Look for the 26-year old to see volume in head coach Adam Gase's offense with previous slot receivers Jarvis Landry, Danny Amendola, and Wes Welker all succeeding in their roles.
For the 2019 season, our models project Crowder to produce 53.2 receptions for 633.2 yards and 2.9 touchdowns.
