Josh McCown    QB   Cleveland Browns
 
McCown appears to be the favorite for the Browns' starting quarterback position heading into camp, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCown was one of the main topics of conversation during a Monday radio interview with head coach Mike Pettine, who stated that "it's fair to say" the veteran is the frontrunner for the job. He'll have to hold off Johnny Manziel if he wants to maintain that status, just as Brian Hoyer had to do prior to the 2014 season. McCown has seen recent success as a starter, throwing for 24 touchdowns (compared to 15 interceptions) in 19 games between the Bears and Buccaneers in 2013 and 2014, respectively. It is worth noting that the 35-year-old quarterback had significantly better weapons to work with at the receiver position than he currently has in Cleveland, however. Fresh off a three-year deal with the Browns, McCown will look to bring the organization stability at the position, but it's difficult to tout him as more than a backup fantasy quarterback at this point.
Dennis Pitta    TE   Baltimore Ravens
 
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Saturday that he is still not sure what will happen with Pitta (hip), the Baltimore Sun reports.

Justin Blackmon    WR   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
It remains unclear whether Blackmon will return to the Jaguars at some point in the future, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

When asked about Blackmon, Jags GM Dave Caldwell reiterated that he is unaware whether the former first-round pick will rejoin the team. "Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said. "Plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he emerges and he's going to go in with those top guys and compete with those other guys. Hopefully we're able to get some news, but if not, we weren't planning on it, we're just going to go." Blackmon, who has had a number of run-ins with the law involving marijuana and alcohol, was effective in 2013, catching 29 passes for 415 yards and a touchdown, but a suspension limited him to only four games. If he returns to the team, he'll have to prove his way back onto the active roster, and at this point, it seems as though the Jaguars are more than prepared to move forth without him.
Carson Palmer    QB   Arizona Cardinals

Doug Martin    RB   Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 
The Bucs have elected not to pick up the fifth-year option on Martin's contract, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

As a result, Martin -- who carried 134 times for 494 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games in 2014 -- is slated to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2015 season, in the event that he doesn't sign an extension with the Bucs in the coming months. Heading into the coming campaign, the report suggests that Martin is likely to compete with Charles Sims for the Bucs' starting RB job, with Bobby Rainey and Mike James set to reprise their backup roles. Assuming he can re-prove his health, though, Martin has a solid shot to enter the season as the team's top early-down back, but at a minimum, Sims' pass-catching ability should earn him change-of-pace work and perhaps more, should he impress this summer.
James Jones    WR   Free Agent
 
The Raiders plan to release Jones, csnbayarea.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The release of Jones, who recorded 73 catches for 666 yards and six touchdowns in 2014 -- his first and only season with Oakland -- paves the way for Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree to head the team's wideout corps this coming season. Per NFL.com, the move will save the Raiders nearly $3.5 million against their salary cap.
Josh Hill    TE   New Orleans Saints
 
Despite trading away Jimmy Graham this offseason, the Saints did not pick a tight end in the 2015 NFL Draft, and according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, Hill has a chance to play a much bigger role in the Saints' offense.
