Eddy Pineiro, K | CHI

The Colts worked out K Eddy Pineiro.

It's a curious move after K Rodrigo Blankenship made 32 of his 37 field goal attempts and 43 of his 45 extra point tries in 2020. Only four kickers made more field goals than Blankenship during his rookie campaign, in which he scored the sixth most fantasy points among kickers. Colts general manager Chris Ballard is apparently deadly serious about bringing in competition at ever position this spring and summer. Pineiro made 82.1 percent of his field goal tries in 2019 for Chicago.

Myles Gaskin, RB | MIA

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said the addition of Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle will be a boon for the team's rushing offense.

It checks out. Adding two burners to the Miami offense should, theoretically, force defenses to back off the line of scrimmage and potentially open up holes for Myles Gaskin and the rest of the Dolphins backs. "Defenses have to make that decision when you have those types of players on the field, and again, if you don't load the box, and you play for those big plays, then there's less people in the box and less people to block and I think it really becomes a kind of numbers math game," Flores said. "If you get those guys blocked, there's more space to run." Not only did Gaskin survive the NFL Draft as the team's No. 1 running back, but the selection of Waddle -- and the free agency signing of Fuller -- creates a more dynamic offense in which he will operate. Gaskin's ADP rise could be held in check if Miami signs another back this spring or summer -- someone like Adrian Peterson, Rex Burkhead, or Duke Johnson.

Justice Hill, RB | BAL

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports Justice Hill "seems pretty locked into" the Ravens No. 3 running back role.

Mark Ingram's departure from the Baltimore backfield ensures Hill will head into 2021 as the RB3 in one of the NFL's run heaviest offenses. It's noteworthy because an injury to J.K. Dobbins or Gus Edwards would instantly open up snaps and touches for Hill, a much ballyhooed back in fantasy circles when Baltimore drafted him as a fourth rounder in 2019. Hill in 2020 had a meager 12 carries and five receptions. The team didn't draft a running back but struck a free agent deal with RB Nate McCrary from Saginaw Valley State after the draft.
