Maurice Jones-Drew says players get updates on their fantasy matchups during games.

Jones-Drew is an avid fantasy player that has actually hosted a fantasy football show on SiriusXM, so perhaps he's a special case. But one story he told is a little disconcerting. "I was playing against [Greg Jones]. And we have our equipment guys keep us up on [the fantasy scores] during games. You know who you have and you see when you're not on the field obviously but...I think if I scored, I was going to [beat Jones]. We got onto the 1-yard line, and they were like, ‘We better call this run play.' I’m like, 'Greg, don’t do it.' And he looked at me and he winked. And I was like 'Greg.' It’s not time to play. This is bigger than [winning in fantasy]. Let's not do this." When asked what the wink meant, Jones-Drew said Jones wasn't going to block.

Browns signed OT Greg Robinson.

The former No. 2 overall pick made six starts with the Lions last season before an ankle injury sent him to injured reserve. Unsurprisingly, he was not great at either guard or tackle in Detroit, but it makes sense for Cleveland to see what Robinson can do. The Browns have a hole at left tackle, but it would be disappointing if Robinson won the job.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield "did not look ready to compete" with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns' starting quarterback job at OTAs and minicamp.

The Boston Globe had a similar report on Sunday. The Plain Dealer doesn't detail where exactly Mayfield is so far behind, but Taylor is a three-year starter with a 22-20 record the past three seasons on poorly-assembled Bills teams. He should open training camp as the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Still, Taylor would be beating the odds to keep the job beyond Cleveland's Week 11 bye.

Ex-Saints CB Delvin Breaux is signing with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

It's a one-year deal. Breaux could not get healthy enough for an NFL team after his devastating 2016 leg break. The Saints made a huge mistake during Breaux's recovery, misdiagnosing a stress fracture as a bruise. Neither side seemed interested in a reunion after that. Breaux has also had spine issues. This will be Breaux's second go-around in Hamilton. It's where he caught the Saints' attention in 2014. Going on 29, Breaux's odds of an NFL return after 2018 are not great but also not zero.

Indy Star's Stephen Holder writes Eric Ebron "has been among the more impressive Colts" during the offseason program.

Ebron has been used all over the formation by new coach Frank Reich. "He’s really smart," Reich said. "And that’s really good because you want to use a guy with the versatility that he has and move him around and call all kinds of things with him." Even with Jack Doyle atop the depth chart, Ebron should see his fair share of targets in an offense desperate for playmakers behind T.Y. Hilton. He is a fine late-round stab in deeper leagues.

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo writes Ereck Flowers has been "impressing teammates and coaches at right tackle."

Angry about being replaced at left tackle, Flowers skipped a large chunk of the offseason program, but he was back in the fold and working as the first-team right tackle by minicamp. Showing well at his new position, Flowers looks likely to open the season as a starter. Patrick Omameh should start next to Flowers at right guard with Jon Halapio at center, rookie Will Hernandez at left guard, and Nate Solder at left tackle.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers will have a "running back by committee."

"We feel like we've got three guys that have all done, but they haven't done it over a long period of time," McCarthy said, "so I think it's just practical thinking from that position and realizing that it's a very demanding position." McCarthy did leave open the possibility of one player emerging as the clear option, but it sounds like all of Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery, and Aaron Jones will have a role to open the season, terrible news for each player's fantasy prospects. Perhaps someone emerges in camp, but this is shaping up as a situation to avoid.

MMQB's Albert Breer writes Panthers first-round WR D.J. Moore "has looked the part" this offseason.

The first receiver off the board at No. 24 overall, Moore is a dynamic weapon who is dangerous after the catch, and he apparently showed off those traits during OTAs and minicamp. In addition to Breer's praise, Panthers.com's Max Henson wrote Moore is "more than ready to contribute." Even with Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and Christian McCaffrey all vying for targets, Moore has the talent to make a fantasy impact as a rookie.

Andrew Luck said the "pain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder is "gone."

"And it’s going to stay that way," the quarterback added. "My body doesn’t revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask." Luck finally threw a football in front of reporters and cameras last week, and he seems much more confident about his health than he was at this time last year. MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Colts will limit Luck in camp, giving him days off and monitoring his reps, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

In an interview with WGR 550 Buffalo, Bills GM Brandon Beane said Zay Jones will have to "earn his way" following a disappointing rookie season in 2017.

"He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line," said Beane. "He’ll have to earn his way." The 23-year-old sat out OTAs while recovering from knee surgery, meaning he has yet to catch passes from newcomers A.J. McCarron and Josh Allen. Jones won't face much competition at receiver in Buffalo, but it will be hard for fantasy owners to trust him after hauling in just 41.5 percent of his targets last year.

Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Times expects second-round RB Ronald Jones to earn 15-20 touches per game this season.

This comes days after Stroud's colleague, Greg Auman, suggested Jones would share backfield work with power back Peyton Barber and pass-catcher Charles Sims. While 15-20 touches per game isn't quite bell-cow level, it's still a substantial workload. Even if Barber vultures some short yardage carries and Sims fills in the gaps on passing downs, there's no doubt Jones will be heavily involved as a rookie. In Tampa, he's the running back to own for fantasy purposes.

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, first-round QB Baker Mayfield has a "long way to go to unseat" starter Tyrod Taylor.

Mayfield has already surpassed Drew Stanton on the Browns' QB depth chart but remains a distant second to Taylor, who has handled all of Cleveland's first-team reps. "I made a commitment to [Taylor] and he has held up his end of the bargain with not just the way he works but the way he plays and the way he leads," said coach Hue Jackson. Obviously the contract-year Taylor is just a placeholder for Mayfield, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and first overall pick in April's draft. Tyrod will likely be the Week 1 starter but there's a good chance we'll see Mayfield at some point in 2018.
