Lamar Jackson Dealing With Illness

Sunday, July 21, 1:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) was sent home from training camp practice on Sunday with an illness. Jackson should return to practice at some point next week and will be a top-five fantasy QB in 2024 after winning his second NFL MVP award in 2023. The biggest storyline of the offseason for the 27-year-old dual-threat signal-caller is that he dropped weight in order to be more agile in 2024, as if he wasn't agile enough already. The biggest question for fantasy managers is whether his drop in weight will make him more injury-prone. New running back Derrick Henry could steal plenty of goal-line opportunities away from Jackson, but he should still maintain high-end fantasy upside heading into his seventh season in the NFL.

Bears Looking To Get Caleb Williams Preseason Reps

Friday, July 19, 11:32 PM

The Chicago Bears are working to formulate a plan for rookie quarterback Caleb Williams some reps in the preseason this August. The Bears will play their first preseason game on Aug. 1 against the Houston Texans in this year's Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio. The Bears want to give the No. 1 overall pick ample action in preseason games and have been discussing it since the spring. Chicago believes the reps Williams gets in practice against the Bears defense will also be valuable, and they'll also have a joint practice with the Cincinnati Bengals on Aug. 15. The former USC QB is hoping to learn the team's offense "as fast as possible" as he heads into his first NFL season as the starter in Week 1 this fall. The 22-year-old was clearly the most NFL-ready signal-caller in the 2024 draft class and could have low-end QB1 fantasy value in the right matchups in his first year with the Bears.
