Dekoda Watson (groin) will be sidelined until at least the middle of training camp, but is expected to be ready for the regular season opener. 

Watson is expected to be the team's starting strongside linebacker in 2014 and could make for a nice IDP option if able to be ready by the start of the season. Considering the Jaguars isn't going to be able to stop too many opponents, any one of their starting linebackers are worth considering when healthy.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee is expected to see some work in the slot during training camp and the preseason with WR Ace Sanders suspended.

Marquise Lee was expected to line up on the outside of the field, opposite of Cecil Shorts in this rookie season, but being able to play the slot will only add to his upside as a fantasy sleeper. Although the Jaguars are a few years away from being competitive, the fact that they will be behind in most contests could lead to a solid season for all receivers involved in the team's offense. However, Lee still has a lot to prove, so he should be a late-round flier at best if producing by the end of training camp.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton insists he's not completely recovered from offseason ankle surgery, but he is practicing.

The legs of a quarterback are just as critical as their arm and in the case of a franchise quarterback like Newton, you can;t be cautious enough. Although he is practicing, the Panthers will make sure he doesn't do too much to prevent his ankle form fully healing, especially with the way Newton uses his legs in the team's offense. If he wasn't good enough to be out their, then he wouldn't be, so no reason to downgrade his fantasy value at this point during training camp.

Tyler Eifert said the shoulder injury he had during the offseason workouts has completely healed.

Eifert has some high expectations on him this season, so the shoulder better be healthy. The team likes using the two-TE sets, but would probably prefer to use Gresham and his sometimes-unsure hands for more blocking. The baton is being passed between them and this year should see Eifert with a nice increase in targets.

The Minnesota Vikings waived T Matt Hall.

Tough break, Matty. Maybe another team will pick you up, but for now, it's back to selling Lady Kenmores at Sears.

Let the battle for the long-snapping job in San Francisco begin. The 49ers will sell you a full seat to the action, but you're only going to need the edge.

Raiders DE C.J. Wilson was placed on the Non-Football Injury list.

No word on the nature or extent of the injury, so we don't know how long he could be out. The Raiders may provide an update soon, but he's only competing for a reserve spot anyway.
