Vernon Davis, Andre Johnson to hold out

Davis looking to get paid: While Marshawn Lynch is expected to stay away from Seahawks minicamp unless he can get a new contract, it looks like Vernon Davis is prepared to do the same. The 49ers tight end wrote recently that he plans to hold out of the team’s workouts, saying “it’s all about getting paid what you deserve.” Davis still has a couple of seasons left on his current contract, but his desire for a new agreement might have been accelerated by Colin Kaepernick’s recent extension. From a fantasy perspective, there’s little to worry about in mid-June. If things start to drag into training camp, however, that evaluation could change.

Texans unsure of Johnson’s status: Little has changed with Andre Johnson’s frustration with the Texans. The veteran receiver skipped all of Houston’s voluntary workouts and appears prepared to miss at least a portion of the team’s mandatory minicamp as well. Johnson has played in all but one season of the franchise’s existence yet has had just three winning seasons and only made the playoffs twice. That makes it understandable that Johnson wouldn’t want to endure another rebuilding project. It seems unlikely that the Texans will find a suitable trade partner, so he’ll either be back with the team or he’ll be forced to walk away. For now, we’re banking on Johnson suiting up for a 12th season.

Cassel ‘the starter right now': The Vikings have a bit of a logjam at quarterback. After drafting Teddy Bridgewater to go along with Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder, there are three players capable of starting the season on top of the depth chart. But even in June, things seem to be sorting themselves out. According to Ponder, Cassel is set to be the starter “right now” but Bridgewater could close the gap before the regular season begins. Regardless of who gets the call, fantasy owners would be wise to wait a while before drafting a Vikings quarterback.
