All 32 teams have been hard at work for the last week-plus, providing us with plenty of tangible information to go off of in terms of fantasy outlooks and speculation. A couple of veteran quarterbacks are offering especially encouraging returns early, and multiple prominent offensive pieces seem to be rebounding nicely from injuries. However, as is common at this stage of the summer, there's also been a few health-related casualties over the first few practices.
Without further ado, let's see whose outlook brightened or darkened over the early stages of camp:
Andrew Luck, Colts: Colts brass and fans alike have been able to collectively exhale over the last week, as Luck has increasingly demonstrated that he'll be a full go by the time the regular season rolls around. The most tangible evidence yet of the fitness of Luck's surgically repaired shoulder came Sunday, when the former Pro Bowler went 19-for-22 with a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's practice, a tally that included multiple downfield connections with favorite target T.Y. Hilton. Luck will still be taking intermittent days off during camp to pace himself, but he's otherwise practicing at full speed and is slated to play in the Colts' first preseason tilt.
Joe Flacco, Ravens: Flacco has shined through the first two weeks of camp, encouragingly building chemistry with a cadre of new receivers. The veteran's latest successes came in Tuesday's practice, when he hooked up with presumed No. 1 target Michael Crabtree
