    Posted 5/21/18 10:39am ET

    The New England Patriots are working on restructuring TE Rob Gronkowski's contract. The team is not allowed to agree on a reworked deal with Gronkowski until Thursday, May 24, if it includes incentives.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots and Gronkowski should be able to agree to a restructured contract at some point this offseason. Gronkowski is one of the top performers in fantasy football when he is healthy and will be the first tight end selected in drafts.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 5/21/18 10:19am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was not present for organized team activities Monday, May 21, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Jones is looking for a better contract but has been in contact with head coach Dan Quinn, so he probably will participate in at least the mandatory June minicamp. Jones will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues in 2018 and likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 5/21/18 10:15am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell still has not signed his franchise tender offer and is not expected to participate in organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Bell likely will hold out until the start of the regular season if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal before the July 16 deadline. He is one of the best options in fantasy football and will be in contention for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 5/21/18 9:04am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's participation in organized team activities is uncertain at this point because of his contract situation, but he will be present for the mandatory June minicamp, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski indicated he will play in 2018, but he does not need to be with the team until minicamp. He is the top tight end when healthy and will be an early-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ryan Grant - WR - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 5/20/18 1:56pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts WR Ryan Grant is the favorite over Chester Rogers to start opposite T.Y. Hilton, based on the one-year, $5 million contract Grant signed in free agency, according to's Gregg Rosenthal.

    Huddle Up: It's poor reasoning from Rosenthal and runs counter to The Indianapolis Star' Zak Keefer, who reported a couple of weeks ago that Rogers is the 'leading candidate' to start in 2018. Rogers is reportedly picking up the new offense quickly and already has some chemistry with Andrew Luck. Grant can be a fine slot option, but asking him to hold up on the outside on a regular basis may be too big of a request.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 5/20/18 12:50pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi played fewer than half the team's snaps in the playoffs, according to's Gregg Rosenthal.

    Huddle Up: It's not surprising from the standpoint Ajayi arrived at midseason. It's a bit surprising from the perspective that Ajayi is clearly the Eagles' best back, but Philadelphia seems pretty content with its committee backfield approach. Even with the departure of LeGarrette Blount and an offseason to learn coach Doug Pederson's offense, the ex-Miami Dolphin is probably going to struggle seeing enough consistent playing time to be a low-end fantasy RB2.

  • Rico Gathers - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 5/20/18 12:42pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Rico Gathers is a candidate to step up as the team's starting tight end, according to's Gregg Rosenthal.

    Huddle Up: Due in part to Gathers' lack of football experience, Geoff Swaim will probably be the favorite to earn the most snaps at tight end in Dallas. But make no mistake about it, Gathers is the one Cowboys' pass-catcher who can be considered a matchup nightmare. If he can stay healthy this season - multiple head injuries sidelined him last year - he could make a strong case to win a job during the preseason.
