Johnny Manziel    QB   Cleveland Browns
 
Manziel is expected to be a full participant in Tuesday's OTA session, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Manziel spent 10 weeks in a rehabilitation facility this offseason, and the reception has been generally positive up to this point, as teammates have apparently taken notice of the personal changes he's made. New offensive coordinator John DeFilippo is the most recent of several within the organization to take note of Manziel's rededication to preparation, stating that "he's spent every hour that he's been allowed to spend in this building." Josh McCown seems to be the favorite to win the starter's job heading into camp, but if the praise sent Manziel's way so far holds true, Johnny Football could at least make the competition interesting in his sophomore campaign.
Vick Ballard    RB   Indianapolis Colts
 
Ballard (Achilles) is not participating in this week's OTA practices, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ballard tore his Achilles last year during a late-July practice, forcing him out for a second consecutive season following tearing an ACL early in the 2013 season. It's hard to predict how he'll fit into the Indianapolis offense until he returns to practice.
Phillip Dorsett    WR   Indianapolis Colts
 
Dorsett made a strong impression in his first OTA practices as he's playing every receiver spot and is said to be picking up the offense quickly, the Indianapolis Star reports. "It's definitely not too big for him," said quarterback Andrew Luck.

Derek Carr    QB   Oakland Raiders
 
Carr's agent, Tim Younger, refutes reports suggesting that the quarterback may need surgery on his right ring finger, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "I don't know where this idea came up that he's going to be having surgery," Younger noted. "The situation, I don't even want to call it an injury, is very minor, and we're just being cautious."

Younger relayed that Carr is "probably going to be throwing before the end" of the Raiders' offseason workouts, which end June 4. In any case, he expects the second-year signal-caller to be 100 percent for the team's mandatory minicamp, which begins on June 9. Since Carr's rookie season ended, the Raiders have made a point of adding viable pass-catching options to mix, signing Michael Crabtree as a free agenct and then drafting highly-promising receiver Amari Cooper fourth overall and subsequently selecting tight end Clive Walford in the third round.
Ben Tate    RB   Free Agent
 
Tate is slated to work out for the Cowboys on Thursday, ESPN.com's Todd Archer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tate's 2014 campaign was largely forgettable, as he opened the season with a frustrating eight-game stint with Cleveland, before seeing work in three games with the Vikings and then the Steelers (in the playoffs) as well. In the wake of the departure of DeMarco Murray, the Cowboys curiously declined to select a running back in 2015 NFL draft, leaving the team with a backfield headed by Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams. Whereas Tate was a highly sought-after free agent last year, at this stage, it looks as though he's simply hoping to catch on somewhere as a depth option, with an eye toward re-establishing his on-field value.
Vince Mayle    WR   Cleveland Browns
 
Mayle (thumb) is expected to be "100 percent" by late-July, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

New offensive coordinator Adam Gase expressed enthusiasm after the Bears' recent rookie minicamp about working with Cutler this season, ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson reports. "I feel comfortable with [Cutler]. I mean, we have a good relationship so far and we're just going to keep working to get better," Gase said.

Geno Smith    QB   New York Jets
 
Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey relayed Wednesday that Smith is on track to remain the Jets' starting quarterback, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per the report, Gailey notes that it was "never a thought" for the team to have a quarterback competition between Smith and veteran addition Ryan Fitzpatrick in training camp. In any case, despite throwing 34 interceptions over his first two pro seasons, Smith will remain the Jets' presumed top QB in the absence of an injury. In an effort to provide Smith with added pass-catching weapons this coming season, the Jets traded for veteran wideout Brandon Marshall and drafted the speedy Devin Smith in the second round of the NFL draft. The newcomers will bolster a pass-catching corps that returns wideouts Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley, as well as a pair of capable tight ends in Jeff Cumberland and Jace Amaro.
Stevan Ridley    RB   New York Jets
 
Ridley (knee) took part in positional drills during the Jets' OTAs Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ridley was reportedly moving well Wednesday, which is certainly a positive sign for a player coming off knee surgery. He remains on track to be ready to go when training camp begins in July.
Fred Jackson    RB   Buffalo Bills
 
Bills running back coach Anthony Lynn said he'd like to see Jackson's workload cut roughly in half this season, The Buffalo News reports. Said Lynn, "I think he wore down a little bit at the end of the season. If we could take half of that off his plate, I think you’re going to see a fresher Fred Jackson and a more explosive Fred Jackson.”
