Rob Kelley projected to open year as Washington's starter

Washington Redskins running back Rob Kelley is expected to open the year as the team's starting running back, according to projections from John Keim of ESPN.

What It Means:

"Samaje Perine will offer tough competition early and perhaps win the job at some point, but if Kelley shows he has improved, he’ll hold onto the job for now," Keim wrote in a rather underwhelming endorsement of the current incumbent in Washington's backfield. Kelley's job security has been at risk ever since the Redskins selected Perine in the fourth round of this year's draft, and it seems inevitable that the rookie will eventually take over the starting gig.

numberFire's models project Kelley to rush 181.7 times for 746.1 yards and 6.40 touchdowns this season while adding 19.6 receptions for 149.9 yards through the air, making him our 27th-ranked fantasy running back entering the year. Perine currently ranks 42nd, and we project him to rush 144.3 times for 517.6 yards and 4.51 rushing touchdowns while catching 15.5 passes for 113.5 receiving yards and 0.61 touchdowns.

Bills' Sammy Watkins (foot) "close to 100 percent"

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins "should be close to 100 percent" when training camp starts, according to the Buffalo News.

What It Means:

After being limited in OTAs, isn't expected to see much time in preseason. However, things are looking positive for the former first-round pick as he enters a contract year in Buffalo.

For the 2017 season, our models like Watkins to finish the year with 65 catches, 988 yards and 7.4 touchdowns on 120 targets. His 143 fantasy points would make him WR18 in standard league scoring.

Anquan Boldin to meet with Bills Monday

Free agent wideout Anquan Boldin is set to meet with the Buffalo Bills on Monday, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.

What It Means:

In preservation of his aging body, Boldin wisely waited until closer to training camp to make a decision on which team he would sign with. The Bills are short on quality numbers at wideout so Boldin -- who previously played with quarterback Tyrod Taylor -- figures to get a decent amount of looks in the Buffalo passing game.

As a member of the Detroit Lions in 2016, Boldin yielded 584 yards, 8 touchdowns and 106.4 fantasy points. Meanwhile, his 65.99 Net Expected Points ranked him 67th among all NFL pass-catchers a year ago.

Chargers' Mike Williams (back) may require season-ending surgery

Los Angeles Chargers wideout Mike Williams might need to undergo season-ending surgery to correct a herniated disk, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

What It Means:

Williams has received two epidurals, but it doesn't seem to be getting him any closer to taking the field. If things don't get better quick, the rookie could be forced to miss his first season in the league. If Williams is ruled out for the year that would mean more to go around for Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and all other receiving targets.

Our algorithms project a healthy Williams for 48 catches, 574 yards and 3.5 touchdown grabs in the upcoming season. And with a projection of 82 targets, that's a lot left to account for in the Chargers passing game.

Cardinals and Chris Johnson agree to one-year deal

The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed running back Chris Johnson to a one-year contract.

What It Means:

Even though he was limited to only four games with a groin injury in 2016, Johnson showed promise in his limited time on the field with Arizona. He'll be 32 years old this year, while being used as a reserve back for the Cardinals to spell starter David Johnson in 2017.

Out of running backs with between 25 and 50 touches in 2016, Johnson's 0.05 Net Expected Points per rush, which ranked fifth.
