Faraz's Training Camp Takeaways



Darren Waller is the clear #1 target in the Giants offense, has been impossible to defend, and it’s been extremely evident during the first week that he’s Daniel Jones’ favorite target.

 

Training wheels are off for Dalton Kincaid. Bills’ beat reporter Joe Buscaglia reports that Kincaid has been consistently targeted by Allen every practice, and they are involving him a ton in the Allen-led offense through the first few practices. It’s been a little bit of the opposite for Gabe Davis.

 

James Cook has been consistently the first RB with Allen and the first-team offense. Their GM called him a three-down back, and there has been no question that he’s their RB1. Damien Harris is the clear RB2 behind Cook.

 

There is serious rapport built between Justin Fields and DJ Moore. Bears beat reporter for The Athletic Adam Jahns says “their connection is by far the best thing going early in camp after it started in OTAs.”

 

There is no competition for TE Jake Ferguson in Dallas. Luke Schoonmaker could still be a few weeks out, and missing camp time as a rookie TE does not help him. His ADP never made sense to me, but it looks like he’s the last fantasy-relevant TE option you can draft.

 

Using two tight ends is definitely something the Patriots will be doing, but it’s actually been Hunter Henry, and not Mike Gesicki, as Mac Jones’ favorite target through the first few camp practices. “Slower start to camp for Mike Gesicki,” says Evan Lazar of Patriots.com.

 

A lot of positive vibes around Elijah Moore - he’s being used a ton. The base offense seems to have 3 WRs on the field, and looks to have Moore in the slot, while Amari Cooper and DPJ man the outside. Cooper is back in practice after a minor early camp injury.
