Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle haven’t panned out as planned, but Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews join a competitive position.
Hurst doesn’t have comparable red-zone production to Andrews, but he does show reliable hands, which he flashed during the team’s rookie minicamp, per the Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec. “He looked very fluid and sharp running routes and decisive in everything he did. He also caught just about everything with the exception of a lunging one-handed attempt at a pass in the back corner of the end zone.”
Coleman and Toilolo both left in free agency, and the Falcons didn’t just use a first-round pick on Ridley to leave him on the bench for long.
Don’t rush to add Ridley to your one-year fantasy football team as a slot receiver within a talented position group, but he should draw a Week 1 start in a three-wide receiver set.
The Seattle Seahawks have a competitive group at running back. Rashaad Penny must look the part of a starter to take a leap forward on the depth chart. In the past season, Chris Carson and Mike Davis flashed in brief bright spots in the backfield.
Tipping the Giants off, particularly with their connections to the quarterback-hungry Bills’ front office, would have been risky. Breer writes the Jets were “willing to pay a little over the point value to get the third pick, in exchange for Indy keeping the talks confidential.” Indy, of course, was willing to take the haul it got from New York — multiple second-round picks — knowing it would cause a shift in the economics of the draft that would allow them to still net a blue-chip player at No. 6. Multiple quarterbacks would go early and one of Bradley Chubb, Barkley and Quenton Nelson (the player Indy preferred all along) would be available to them.
