Former Alabama QB A.J. McCarron says NFL teams are telling him he could be a 1st-round pick.

In regards to meeting with NFL teams, McCarron was quoted as saying, "They felt like I could go anywhere from 16-35." It should be noted that McCarron is only talking about the teams that he has met with to date and not every NFL team. We will find out where McCarron land May 8, 9, or 10.ANALYST: David Kerr

Marques Colston, who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list, participated in some 7-on-7 drills at practice Monday.

Colston has been the top wide receiver in New Orleans for quite a few years now. With Jimmy Graham gone, he should see an increase in targets, but Brandin Cooks might be the better fantasy play over the course of the season. It's tough to say at this point, seeing as Colston is only participating in 7-on-7 drills at this moment. Analysis: Colby Conway

Ed Williams signed a free agent contract with the Green Bay Packers on Monday.

With the Packers receiving core pretty well maintained, Williams seems to just be depth at this point. He should have no substantial fantasy impact during the 2015 season, so he shouldn't even enter your draft prep. Analysis: Colby Conway

Stephen Strasburg (oblique) gave up two runs in 5 2/3 innings in his rehab start Monday night for Triple-A Syracuse. He had 11 strikeouts in the game.

Strasburg looks poised to return to the Washington lineup, especially after tonight's dominance. Of his 17 outs, 11 were recorded via the strikeout. He could return to the Washington rotation as early as Saturday. Analysis: Colby Conway

Manager Chip Hale says team has not decided yet whether Chase Anderson's (triceps) next start will be in the big leagues or another rehab one.

If Anderson doesn’t return to the Arizona rotation, expect Zack Godley to stick in the rotation moving forward. Anderson hasn’t pitched since July 18, when he allowed seven earned runs in just 3 2/3 innings against the Giants. Analysis: Colby Conway

Update: David Johnson is day-to-day with a hamstring injury.

Andre Ellington struggles to stay healthy, opening the door for Johnson to make a splash in many fantasy formats this season. Johnson could vulture a few touchdowns this season, especially down at the goal line. However, he is more of a pass catcher, but can still do some damage. Analysis: Colby Conway

Joique Bell (ankle, Achilles) did some running on the side at Monday's practice.

Bell is working his way back from an ankle and Achilles injury, but he finally seems to be progressing back to full health. Ameer Abdullah will likely operate in a Reggie Bush-esque role, but Bell should be still see his normal touches. Analysis: Colby Conway

Chargers signed DE Luther Robinson.

The big defensive tackle played in a few games for the Packers in 2014, but had a very minimal impact. He fills an open spot for the team and has the chance to stick as a backup defensive lineman. Analysis: Colby Conway

Free-agent WR L'Damian Washington signed with the Chiefs Monday.

Washington is a speedster who played his college football at Missouri. He is a longshot to make the roster, but it's nice that the team is giving him a chance. Analysis: Colby Conway

Kyle Williams (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve.

An Achilles injury will place him on the injured reserve, ending whatever fantasy value he had for the 2015 season. Stick to the higher profile wide receivers in Denver this season as they transition to a Gary Kubiak offensive approach. Analysis: Colby Conway

Breshad Perriman (knee) missed a fourth straight practice Monday.

The speedy Perriman could be a big time fantasy asset this season. He should easily exceed his ADP and finish higher than quite a few receivers who will be drafted before him. He tends to drop a few passes, but hopefully that will improve during camp. The knee isn't expected to be a glaring issue, so he should be back on the field sometime soon. Analysis: Colby Conway

Head coach Bruce Arians wants Andre Ellington to receive "in the neighborhood of 20 touches a game" this season.

We have heard this before about Ellington and while that sounds great and all, it is completely dependent on his health. Ellington played in just 12 games last year, rushing for 660 yards on 201 carries. His 3.3 YPC was significantly lower than the average of 5.5 yards per carry he posted in his rookie campaign. Analysis: Colby Conway

Nick Tepesch has been shut down in rehab after having tingling sensation in right hand. He will be examined for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

This is a tough blow for Tepesch. While he won't have any fantasy value for 2015, the team is more concerned with his overall health and well-being at this time. Analysis: Colby Conway

Akeem Davis was evaluated for an injury to his left thumb at Monday's practice.

There should be an update on the severity of his injury being released sometime in the near future. Davis is currently listed as the third string free safety for the team, meaning he will only see time in select packages. Analysis: Colby Conway
