The top rookie fantasy TE seasons of the last decade - Mike Castiglione
Savvy fantasy owners who rostered Henry in dynasty and keeper leagues have plenty to be excited about. The 2015 Mackey Award winner was a backend TE1 as a rookie, and he has the makings of a future top-tier player at his position. Henry tops all rookies on this list in average depth of target (10.0). An All-Rookie Team selection in 2016, he is also tied for first in fantasy points per opportunity (0.42) and ranks second in TDs (8). He did all of this despite Antonio Gates playing 585 snaps to Henry’s 574. While Gates is perhaps the best active tight end to have around as a mentor, he’ll turn 37 in June and is very likely headed into his final season.

Narrative Street: How true are fantasy's 'truths'? - PFF Analysis Team
This offseason, our Tyler Loechner is investigating some of the common "wisdom" in fantasy football to see how true some of the things we always hear actually are. Do rookie quarterbacks really use their tight ends as a security blanket? Do backup quarterbacks have a better rapport with backup receivers because of their practice time? Things like that.

Ranking the top 10 QB draft prospects - Steve Palazzolo
A one-year starter, Trubisky showed good short-area accuracy, pocket presence, and the ability to make big-time throws outside the numbers. He can still improve his blitz recognition and deep ball, but his impressive one-year sample has pushed him to the top of our quarterback board.

Chargers bring back versatile lineman Kenny Wiggins - Eric Williams
With Wiggins in the fold, the Chargers now have 12 offensive linemen under contract as they build the 90-man roster for the opening of training camp at the end of July

Jatavis Brown should thrive in new role on Chargers defense - Eric Williams
But with Gus Bradley taking over as defensive coordinator, the Chargers will move to a 4-3. Brown will probably move to the Will (weak side) outside linebacker position, and that position change should serve him well.
