Nerdy Football Analysis: It was reported just yesterday that a deal wasn’t likely but the July 15th deadline spurred action and allowed Henry to get a couple years of security. Henry (25) is coming off a monster season and will be the focal point of the Titans offense heading into 2020. He’s a RB1 target in fantasy drafts in the middle of Round 1.

Injury Washington WR looks forward to 2021

#Redskins WR Kelvin Harmon tore his ACL while training prior to camp, sources say. The promising former sixth rounder, who had 30 catches for 365 yards last season as a rookie, now has eyes on 2021. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Harmon was used sparingly during his rookie season posting a 30-365-0 line in a less than ideal Washington offense. This should create more opportunities for rookie Antonio Gandy-Golden but it’s hard to get excited about the fantasy prospects of a rookie wide receiver in this offense. Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims are the only options fantasy owners should consider.

July 15th deadline for franchise player long-term contracts

Titans and Derrick Henry are not expected to reach a long-term deal by Wednesday deadline for franchise players, per source. Henry is scheduled to make $10.27M this season and become a free agent in off-season.

Any franchise deals by Wednesday will be an exception, not the rule. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Henry signed his tender offer and hasn’t made any noise about a holdout so it appears he will report to camp without any disruption. Henry’s coming off a monster fantasy season (303-1540-16; 18-206-2) where he finished as the RB5 in PPR leagues.

Three teams interested in TE Jordan Reed?

Tight end wants to play in 2020

One name to watch as teams gear up for training camp: FA TE Jordan Reed. The former Washington play-maker has three teams interested and plans to play in 2020. A potential low-risk, high-reward signing. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This sounds like an agent trying to pump up his client for the best possible deal. It’s not out of the question that teams would be interested in Reed’s talent but his injury history is part of the reason he’s still available on the market. Reed has never played a full 16-game schedule since joining the league in 2013.
