Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said he wants the offense to play at a faster tempo this season. "I'm trying to get them out of the huddle faster," Lazor said. "And sometimes it's uncomfortable. Sometimes it's uncomfortable for the line to make the calls that quickly. The quarterback might want them to settle in and to make the calls. We don't want it. We want to go. Every single day it's a push. They know it, they understand it. They also understand it's hard, and they're trying. I'll keep pushing."
FANTASY TIP: If Lazor is successful in his attempt to speed up the offense, it could mean a few extra fantasy points for Miami's main weapons, but nothing significant enough to impact where players should be drafted.

St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick hooked up with QB Sam Bradford on a couple of deeps balls in team drills Tuesday, July 29, and has enjoyed a strong camp overall, according to ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner.
FANTASY TIP: Quick has yet to live up to his draft position, but it looks like he could be developing into Bradford's go-to target. He is at least worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

St. Louis Ram RB Tre Mason saw received some snaps with the first-team Tuesday, July 29, with RB Zac Stacy receiving a majority of the work with the first-team.
FANTASY TIP: Mason could end being a nice change-of-pace back for the Rams, but Stacy is set to receive a bulk of the carries. Consider Stacy a solid RB2 this season.

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey earned praise from head coach Ken Whisenhunt for his quick cuts and willingness to lower his shoulder during practice Tuesday, July 29. Whisenhunt also said that Sankey was drafted in part because he is a good fit for the offensive system.
FANTASY TIP: Sankey can do it all out of the backfield, and he should be the team's top back this season. He is worth drafting as a low-end RB2 in standard formats with more value in PPR formats.

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) ran routes in full pads Monday, July 29, and worked on the side with athletic trainers.
FANTASY TIP: Patterson appears to be working his way back up to speed, and his injury doesn't seem like one that will linger. At full speed, he is a big play waiting to happen, and he is worth drafting as a WR2.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is taking part in fewer reps in training camp this year than in years past and said he is trying to be smarter about his approach to practice with the goal of staying healthy the entire season. "I'm older now," Johnson said. "I'm not diving for the balls anymore (in practice). Coach Caldwell has a big emphasis about us staying off the ground. I'm not playing every play in practice but they're working me in. I'm out here trying to get my extra running in after (practice) so I can keep my wind up."
FANTASY TIP: Anything that Johnson can do to avoid the nagging injuries that forced him to miss time down the stretch last season is a good thing for fantasy owners. He should be the first WR off the board in any format.
