The 49ers promised Vernon Davis would be a bigger part of the offense this season.

ESPN's Paul Gutierrez expects Davis to re-emerge as an option in the red zone and be San Francisco's "breakout" player on offense. Davis is 31, but entering a contract year and coming off a strong offseason in which he didn't hold out of OTAs and minicamp. With sure-handed receivers Michael Crabtree and Stevie Johnson gone, Davis and Anquan Boldin figure to be leaned on by Colin Kaepernick.

ESPN's Dan Graziano believes Andre Williams has "the best shot" at getting the goal-line work for the Giants.

Williams was pretty unimpressive as a rookie, but if he had success with anything, it was capitalization near the goal line with six touchdowns. He worked on his all-around game in the offseason, and Rashad Jennings has failed to stand out much this summer. Jennings and Shane Vereen will have roles, but Williams could have the most important one in the red zone. He makes for a fine dart-throw at the running back spot currently going in the 12th round of drafts.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports no running back has separated himself at Cowboys camp, and the expectation is Dallas uses a committee approach.

All three of Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, and Lance Dunbar bring something different to the table. Randle and McFadden rely on quickness and speed, while Dunbar probably has the clearest path to an actual cemented role on offense as a "perfect fit" for the change-of-pace job. Randle is still the favorite to open the season as lead dog, but the Cowboys may rotate these guys in and out. Randle continues to have a far-too-rich-for-our-tastes third-round ADP.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports WR Albert Wilson has been "mostly quiet in training camp and the preseason."

Wilson generated some buzz with a nice finish to 2014, but has only two catches for 15 yards through two preseason games. He's been the subject of relatively few "puff pieces" from Chiefs practice since the beginning of OTAs. Wilson isn't a bad WR5 flier in 14-team leagues, but his upside is limited with Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce set to dominate targets in the Chiefs' passing game.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Miles Austin "hasn't stood out enough" in Eagles camp.

The 10th-year veteran is no higher than fourth on the depth chart, and could begin the year as low as fifth or sixth. Austin could be an early-season inactive if coach Chip Kelly doesn't see a role for him on special teams. Austin still has fine hands, but has lost a step or three since his prime. He should remain well off the re-draft radar this season. Austin's $2.5 million salary ($1 million guaranteed) will probably ensure his place on the 53-man roster.

Fifth-rounder Rashad Greene could begin the season as the Jaguars' No. 3 receiver.

Marqise Lee remains week to week with a hamstring injury, and Greene has come on after a slow start to camp. "(He's) making strides," said WRs coach Jerry Sullivan. "He has a lot of tools and we like what we see." Greene missed the Jags' first preseason game before catching two passes for 14 yards in the second. Regardless of Greene's Week 1 title, his biggest rookie contributions should come on special teams.

NJ.com reports Odell Beckham has been dominating "every practice."

It shouldn't come as a surprise, but Beckham isn't resting on his laurels after his freak-of-nature rookie season. Some regression is inevitable, but Beckham is an elite WR1, and a legitimate threat to finish as the No. 1 overall receiver.

Ryan Mallett missed Thursday's practice because he overslept.

It's hard to fathom for a 27-year-old man who was in pursuit of the Texans' starting job as recently as three days ago. The Texans gave Mallett a chance to make something of his career after three years in the Patriots backup wilderness, and he's responded in remarkably limp fashion. The Browns have a strong case, as well, but you could argue Houston has the worst quarterback situation in the NFL.
