Now that it appears certain that Aaron Rodgers will skip the mandatory minicamp, Love should finally get to work with the top receivers. The 2020 first-round pick hasn't had many experienced targets to work with during OTAs because the top-four returning receivers (Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard and Equanimeous St. Brown) along with 2020 opt-out Devin Funchess have all stayed away. They're expected to attend this week's camp. Love has favored check-down passes during the practices that have been open to reporters, but now he shouldn't have any reason not to take some more shots down the field. -- Rob DemovskyCleveland Browns for Face Masks
A fifth-round draft choice in 2018, he has appeared in every one of the Packers’ 52 overall games (including playoffs) since he entered the league. His six touchdown grabs in 2020 was two more than he managed in his first two seasons combined. His regular-season resume reads 97 catches for 1,723 yards and 10 score.
Rodgers, the reigning NFL MVP, is unhappy and wants to leave the Packers, according to multiple reports, with one report saying he will not return if general manager Brian Gutekunst remains in charge.

But with the Sixers clinging to a five-point lead at the break, and Simmons scoring just four points up to that point -- matching his point total from Game 2 -- Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers challenged him to do more.
But who fills the void left by Irving? It could be Mike James, as this would get another playmaker on the court, thus alleviating some of the pressure that Kevin Durant will have to deal with. While James had his moments in the first two games of the series, he was comparatively quiet in Games 3 and 4. That being said, he's a better choice than either Landry Shamet or Tyler Johnson when it comes to filling that playmaker role. Nothing changed with regard to Milwaukee's injury report, as Donte DiVincenzo (left ankle surgery) and Jordan Nwora (left thigh contusion) were the only players listed.Washington Wizards Face Coverings

It started with just less than 4:30 left in the third quarter of what became the Bucks’ Game 3 win: Kevin Durant came off a high pick, drove down to the free throw line, and pulled up for a shot, where the trailing P.J. Tucker fouled him. Tucker didn’t like the call, he complained, Durant said something, then quickly the two started to have words and they were nose-to-nose for a second before teammates stepped in and separated them.

Cleveland continues to go nowhere without LeBron James in the organization. While Sexton and backcourt mate Darius Garland are fun to watch, it has not translated to winning whatsoever so far in Cleveland. Because Sexton has one more year’s worth of NBA experience, trading for him will not as pricey as doing business with the Cavaliers for Garland. Besides, Cleveland will be in the lottery.
Mitchell's doing what he can to shoulder even more of the load offensively, a task that proves especially difficult when Jordan Clarkson (8/5/2 with two 3-pointers) shoots 3-of-12 from the field. Bojan Bogdanovic (18/3/5/2 with two 3-pointers) and Rudy Gobert (11/8/0/0/1) also hit double figures for the Jazz, who got just 11 points from their reserves (the Clippers finished with 21 bench points) on the night. Conley's absence also impacts the back end of the Jazz rotation, so the sooner he's cleared to return, the better.Brooklyn Nets Face Coverings

Maybe it’s too late for a contract that binds the Packers to Rodgers. Maybe Rodgers gave them a fair chance to fix the situation, they didn’t, and now he’s just done. More information will come when he shows up (or doesn’t) for training camp. Until then, a team that has gone to two straight NFC title games and has the reigning league MVP on the payroll finds itself in a delicate and in many ways unprecedented spot. Rodgers isn’t happy, Rodgers isn’t present for a mandatory event, and Rodgers may never show up again.

Yes, we know. "Eagles quarterbacks in general" is doing a lot of work here. And when in the pocket, neither Wentz nor Hurts were successful on a consistent basis.

Hurts' passer rating of 79.9 came about via 63 completions on 106 attempts for 780 yards, 395 air yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. The difference in 2020 was that Hurts was somewhat effective outside the pocket (a 71.6 passer rating on 42 attempts), while Wentz... was not (a 54.9 passer rating on 69 attempts).Minnesota Vikings for Face Masks

While Trevor Mahle against the Rockies is worthy of consideration, ultimately Ryan Yarbrough gets the lean as the secondary pitcher on the two-pitcher DFS sites. Yarbrough is coming off a career-high 113 pitch nine-inning complete game against the Yankees where he allowed just two home runs, leading the Rays to a 9-2 victory last Thursday. Tampa Bay elected to give him some extra time between starts, and he should be good for his usual workload of 80 to 85 pitches. While he has allowed six home runs in his last four starts, they have not caused too much damage since he generally limits baserunners. With only 12 walks on the season in 66.0 innings and a matchup against the strikeout-prone Orioles, this is lining up nicely for Yarbrough.San Diego Padres face coverings
