1.Jordan Lucas: Settles into reserve role (RotoWire) Lucas notched seven tackles (three solo) and one defended pass across 14 regular-season games in 2019. Analysis: Lucas also recorded one tackle in three postseason appearances. The 26-year-old safety is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and his prowess on special-teams could help garner interest from other clubs around the league if he does ultimately leave Kansas City.15 minutes
2.Xavier Williams: Only eight tackles in 2019 (RotoWire) Williams made eight tackles (seven solo) and one forced fumble across five games in 2019. Analysis: Williams contributed as a reserve option at defensive tackle across the 2019 season, and he also notched two tackles in two postseason appearances. The 28-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.20 minutes
3.Dorian O'Daniel: Special-teams role in 2019 (RotoWire) O'Daniel had eight tackles (five solo) and one fumble recovery across 14 regular-season contests in 2019. Analysis: O'Daniel's primary contributions for Kansas City came on special teams, as he recorded 293 such snaps as opposed to only five snaps on defense. The 25-year-old will spent the offseason competing to retain a similar role for 2020.59 minutes
4.Morris Claiborne: Sits out entire postseason (RotoWire) Claiborne accrued 14 tackles (nine solo) across eight regular-season contests in 2019. He did not make an appearance across three postseason games. Analysis: Claiborne missed the first four contests of the season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist last July, and a shoulder injury sustained Week 13 later sidelined him for the rest of the regular season and playoffs. He practiced in full prior to the AFC Championship Game, however, an indication that he's managed to return to full health. During the eight games Claiborne did suit up, he was limited to a depth role in Kansas City's secondary. The 30-year-old is set to become an... (More)1 hour
5.Rashad Fenton: Flashes in rookie season (RotoWire) Fenton notched 15 tackles (11 solo), four defended passes, one interception and one forced fumble across 12 regular-season games in 2019. Analysis: Fenton also had 10 tackles, one sack and one defended pass in three postseason appearances. While the 2019 sixth-round pick only managed to accrue modest numbers while playing a reserve role in Kansas City's linebacker corps, the fact that he performed well in coverage bodes well for his future with the team. He'll work to further his development this offseason.1 hour
6.Armani Watts: Full 16-game slate in 2019 (RotoWire) Watts racked up 17 tackles (13 solo) and one sack across 16 regular-season games in 2019. Analysis: Watts rebounded from a rookie campaign in which he played just five games due to injury, managing to remain healthy the entire 2019 season and contribute as a depth option in Kansas City's secondary and on special teams. He stands to handle a similar gig for 2020.1 hour
7.Khalen Saunders: Reserve role in 2019 (RotoWire) Saunders notched 22 tackles (13 solo), one sack and one defended pass across 12 regular-season contests in 2019. Analysis: Saunders also had three tackles across three postseason appearances. After sitting out the first four contests of the regular season, the Western Illinois product managed to carve out a consistent depth role behind Chris Jones and Derrick Nnadi in the middle of Kansas City's defensive line. He'll now work to further his development over the offseason.1 hour
8.Belichick adds Joe Houston to coaching s... (Rotoworld) Patriots hired Alabama quality controls staffer Joe Houston as assistant special teams coordinator.1 hour
9.Proposed CBA would allow third player of... (Rotoworld) The NFL's proposed collective bargaining agreement would allow teams to activate a third player off injured reserve in-season. Analysis: Other added details include increased rosters (48 players) on gameday with overall rosters shifting from 53 to 55, an increase in practice squad sizes by adding two spots for "unlimited accrued seasons," the ability for teams to shuttle a handful of players from the practice squad to their active roster (and back) without being forced to waive them, and a caveat that brings in a neutral party appointed by the NFLPA for initial disciplinary rulings. There are a number of positive takeaway... (More)2 hours
10.Stephen Gostkowski: Could be released (RotoWire) Gostkowski (hip) may be released this offseason, NESN.com's Zack Cox reports. Analysis: Gostkowski missed five kicks in four games last season before landing on injured reserve with a hip injury. He's now entering the last year of his contract, with the Patriots able to clear out nearly $3.5 million in cap space if he's released. The 36-year-old probably needs to accept a pay cut to have any shot at sticking around.2 hours
11.Odell Beckham: Should be healthy soon (RotoWire) Beckham (core muscle) ran on a treadmill Thursday and should be healthy in about a month, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Analysis: Beckham apparently is making good progress in his recovery from Jan. 21 surgery to repair a core muscle injury. His rehab timeline is much shorter than that of fellow Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who is looking at an estimate of six-to-eight months after undergoing hip surgery Feb. 4. Beckham was bothered by his groin/abdomen throughout much of his first season in Cleveland, perhaps explaining a career-low mark of 64.7 receiving yards per game. It sounds like he'll be healthy...

12.Jerry Hughes undergoes second surgery of the offseason (FantasyPros) Jerry Hughes recently underwent his second surgery of the offseason. The latest procedure was on his groin, while the initial surgery was on his wrist. Analysis: Hughes hopes to be back to full-go for the 2020 season now that he's completed both of these surgeries. He was certainly disappointing in 2019, but that may be able to be written off given the fact that he was playing through a pair of injuries that required offseason surgery. He has been a force in the past, and he's an interesting bounce-back candidate for IDP leagues in 2020.3 hours
13.Corey Davis: Not expected to receive option (RotoWire) Davis isn't likely to have the fifth-year option on his rookie contract picked up, John Glennon of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The option would cost approximately $15.8 million, and while it's guaranteed for injury only, the Titans would be taking a big risk using it on a player with a career average of 44.5 receiving yards per game. Davis did finish 2019 with career highs for catch rate (62.3 percent) and yards per target (8.7), but he saw 43 fewer targets than he had in 2018, with the Titans offense running through Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown. Assuming the option isn't picked up, the 25-year-old wideout will be in the final se... (More)3 hours
14.Antonio Brown grievance against Raiders to be heard in May (FantasyPros) The grievance filed by Antonio Brown against the Raiders over lost wages will be held in May. Analysis: Brown will also likely have a hearing against the Patriots for similar reasons, citing the $9 million in signing bonus he didn't receive from New England. Brown is also expected to attend the NFL Combine to try and smooth things over with NFL teams, but it's unclear if he'll make much headway in that department given his off-the-field issues. He's someone to monitor this offseason since he could continue to be a fantasy producer if he's able to return to the field.... (More)3 hours
15.A.J. Green: Bengals want veteran WR back (FantasyPros) Bengals head coach Zac Taylor told reporters that the team wants and expects veteran wide receiver A.J. Green to return in 2020. Analysis: The Bengals could franchise Green if they're unable to agree to terms on an extension. While Green was initially disagreeable to the franchise tag, it seems like he'd be more willing to play through that at this point. There are still a wide range of outcomes here, and given Green's injury issues and previous production, he is certainly a volatile fantasy option at this point.3 hours
16.Jerry Hughes: Undergoes another surgery (RotoWire) Hughes (wrist) had groin surgery Thursday, Bradley Gelber of USA Today reports. Analysis: Hughes had wrist surgery Jan. 20 to repair torn ligaments that he played with for much of the 2019 season. He started all 16 games for Buffalo, but the pair of injuries may have played a role in limiting the 31-year-old defensive end to his second-lowest sack total (4.5) in the past seven years, along with his worst numbers since 2011 for tackles (23) and QB hits (nine). Hughes is entering the first season of a two-year, $21.5 million extension in 2020, presumably returning as the Bills' starter at right defensive end. He'll have five months to ... (More)3 hours
17.Jarvis Landry expected to be sidelined 6-8 months (FantasyPros) Jarvis Landry, who recently underwent surgery on his hip in early February, is expected to be sidelined 6-8 months following the procedure. Analysis: Despite the timeframe, the Browns continue to say that they believe Landry will be ready at the start of the new season in September. That would have him back in seven months, so obviously if this takes him on the longer end of the timeframe to recover from, Landry is at risk of missing regular season action this year. This will certainly be a situation to monitor as redraft leagues approach, but he is also dinged in d... (More)3 hours
18.Damon Harrison released by Lions (FantasyPros) The Lions have released defensive lineman Damon Harrison. Analysis: Damon "Snacks" Harrison was a big part of the team's improved run defense prior to 2019 after coming over the from Giants, but he struggled largely last season. He currently hopes to return for the 2020 season, but the interest he drives on the market will likely dictate whether he will suit up or not this year.3 hours
19.Hughes undergoes second surgery of offse... (Rotoworld) Bills DE Jerry Hughes is expected to make a full recovery following groin surgery Thursday morning. Analysis: It's Hughes' second surgery of the offseason as he additionally went under the knife to repair a torn wrist ligament he admitted to playing through for the entire year in late January. The 31-year-old EDGE appeared in every game for Sean McDermott's defense in '19 but surprisingly underwhelmed with 23 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and just one fumble recovery — marks that can perhaps be attributed to his multiple injuries. He'll account for $9.5 million against Buffalo's cap in 2020.3 hours
20.Bills | Jerry Hughes has groin surgery (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills DE Jerry Hughes (groin) had surgery on his groin Thursday, Feb. 20. Hughes had wrist surgery earlier this offseason. 6 hours
21.Dynasty | Jordan Reed released (Dynasty League Football) The Redskins have released tight end Jordan Reed Analysis: As mentioned in our previous news items, this move has been expected for a long while. Reed has cleared the league's concussion protocol and word is that he plans to continue his career following his reported seventh concussion. Jordan Reed is found as DLF's TE47. Still only 29 years of age, should Reed be able to steer clear of further concussions, he's young enough to still be productive within the right ... (More)7 hours
22.Bieniemy officially turns down Colorado ... (Rotoworld) NBC Denver's Mike Klis reports Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy has officially turned down the University of Colorado's head-coaching job. Analysis: Although he was never formally interviewed, Klis believes Bieniemy was the Buffs' "top choice." CU is Bieniemy's alma mater, but it's a lower-tier Pac-12 school and Bieniemy appears well on track to a head NFL gig. It would have been a step back for the Super Bowl-winning offensive coordinator.11 hours
23.McDermott talks up ex-rugby player RB Wa... (Rotoworld) Coach Sean McDermott said second-year RB Christian Wade "has been impressive" and the "sky's the limit" for him. Analysis: It's obvious coachspeak from McDermott, but it's at least notable after Wade balled out last preseason with big plays as a first-year player following his transition from rugby over in the UK. Wade produced an 8-84-1 rushing line and 4-55 receiving line in limited exhibition work before spending the year on the practice squad. With Frank Gore a free agent, Wade could make a move on a 53-man roster spot in 2020.15 hours
24.Redskins release TE Jordan Reed (FFToday) The Washington Redskins cut tight end Jordan Reed on Thursday, parting ways with a talented but oft-injured player. The move comes as no surprise given Reed's injury history and that the move saves Washington $8.5 million in cap space. He had been under contract through 2021. Analysis: Reed didn't play a snap in 2019 after suffering a concussion in the preseason. Hampered by injuries most of his career, Reed has been a talented tease for fantasy owners. He still wants to play in the NFL but will likely settle for a one-year deal given his injury history. After the retirement of ... (More)15 hours
25.Titans likely to exercise Jackson's opti... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's John Glennon expects the Titans to exercise CB Adoree' Jackson's fifth-year team option for 2021. Analysis: The No. 18 overall pick of the 2017 draft, Jackson has occasionally been more name than game but has ultimately been an asset. 2019 was by far his strongest season for the on-the-rise Titans. Guaranteed for injury only, Jackson's option would be an affordable $10 million-ish. It would be very surprising for the Titans not to exercise it.16 hours
26.TEN unlikely to exercise Corey Davis' op... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's John Glennon does not expect the Titans to exercise Corey Davis' fifth-year team option for 2021. Analysis: Although it is guaranteed for injury only, Davis would be due roughly $15.8 million under the option, a sum his play has not come close to reflecting. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2017 draft was easily passed on the depth chart by second-round rookie A.J. Brown in 2019. It's hard to label Davis an outright bust — he posted 891 yards in 2018 — but he has not had the looks of a future No. 1 wideout. Davis does have youth on his side, having turned 25 just last mont... (More)16 hours
27.Lions cut Snacks Harrison, save $6.7 mil... (Rotoworld) Lions released DT Damon Harrison. Analysis: "Snacks" no more. The move creates $6.7 million in cap space, and comes after a disappointing season for the run-stuffer extraordinaire. Harrison saw his Pro Football Focus grade crater while playing his fewest snaps in 2014. He missed one game with a groin injury. 2020 will be Harrison's age-32 campaign. His goal on the open market will be landing guaranteed money for the upcoming season. He is unlikely to secure any for 2021.16 hours
28.Ravens | A.J. Green a fit in Baltimore? (thehuddle) Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR A.J. Green (foot) 'wants out of Cincinnati,' in the opinion of an NFC executive, and the executive believes Green would be a 'good fit' for the Baltimore Ravens. Analysis: Green has battled a variety of injuries in recent years, including last season's foot injury, but he has been one of the best receivers in the league when healthy. Despite the injury concerns, Green is worth a look as a high-end WR2.16 hours
29.NFL proposal would increase roster size ... (Rotoworld) The NFL's proposed collective bargaining agreement would increase the in-season roster size from 53 to 55. Analysis: It would also increase the size of practice squads by adding two spots for "unlimited accrued seasons," aka any player. Other changes would include curbing the commissioner's power in disciplinary cases and softening marijuana punishments. There are some nice olive branches in the proposal, but a number of trojan horses, as well. It is far from guaranteed that this will be smooth sailing.16 hours
30.Jets | Big money for Robby Anderson? (thehuddle) New York Jets impending free-agent Robby Anderson's next contract is likely to come in north of $10 million, according to an AFC personnel evaluator. 'It's real simple,' the evaluator said. 'He's fast and has size. Any team that wants speed at receiver will pay him well.' Analysis: Anderson has big-play speed to stretch the field, but his role as a deep threat lends itself to hit-and-miss fantasy production. He will likely be a WR3 candidate wherever he lands.16 hours
31.'There is a market' for Broncos DB Will ... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's James Palmer reports "there is a market" for impending free agent DB Will Parks. Analysis: A key reserve and special teamer the past four years in Denver, Parks is known for his versatility on defense. He spent extensive time at both safety and nickel back in 2019. Parks is ultimately just a role player but being able to play multiple positions never goes out of style on the open market.17 hours
32.Titans | Tennessee to keep Derrick Henry? (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has a good chance to receive a big extension from the Titans, according to an AFC scout. 'Keep a guy who you know you're getting with such consistency,' the scout said. Analysis: Henry said he is looking to be paid like one of the top backs in the league, but staying in Tennessee is probably the best-case scenario for his fantasy value. If Henry is back with the Titans in 2020, he should be a RB1 in all formats.17 hours
33.Titans | Marcus Mariota not rushing things (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Marcus Mariota is expected to take his time to make a decision during free agency, according to a source.17 hours
34.NFL | Damon Harrison wants to play in 2020 (thehuddle) Free-agent DT Damon Harrison (Lions) said he wants to continue playing in 2020, according to a source.17 hours
35.Bills | Harrison Phillips eyeing training camp (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills DT Harrison Phillips (knee) said he has progressed to the point where he is able to run and is hoping to be 100 percent healthy in time for training camp.18 hours
36.Lions | Damon Harrison out in Detroit (thehuddle) The Detroit Lions are releasing DT Damon Harrison Thursday, Feb. 20, according to a source.18 hours
37.Report: Jordan Reed plans to continue ca... (Rotoworld) ESPN's John Keim confirms free agent TE Jordan Reed is expected to continue playing career following his release from the Redskins. Analysis: Keim's report is via a "source close to Reed." Reed will be returning from his seventh documented concussion as a pro. He has appeared in just 65-of-112 possible career games, good for 58 percent. He turns 30 on July 3. The easy take from afar is that Reed should hang 'em up, but he knows his body better than anyone else. Teams will surely be willing to bet on his talent.18 hours
38.Harrison Phillips: Eyes on 2020 season (RotoWire) While Phillips, who's recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL, may not be able to go full bore during spring practices, it's believed he'll be close to 100 percent once training camp rolls around, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: The 2018 third-rounder suffered the injury in the third game of the 2019 season, while all signs are trending positive in his recovery. He was drafted to be groomed as a retired Kyle Williams' replacement, but that hasn't panned out just yet and even in full health, Phillips seems slotted for more of a 2020 depth role behind Ed Oliver, Star Lotulelei and perhaps Jordan Phillips... (More)19 hours
39.Jarvis Landry expects to miss 6-8 months (Rotoworld) Jarvis Landry (hip surgery) is expected to be sidelined 6-8 months. Analysis: In other words, he's questionable not just for training camp, but Week 1. In a statement announcing Landry's operation, the team did imply it expected him to ready for the opener. Landry has always been a warrior when it comes to injuries, but there is only so much you can do when returning from major surgery. Landry's operation "shaved down some cartilage and removed two pieces of bone embedded in the labrum of his left hip." He went under the knife on Feb. 4. His Week 1 status cannot be taken for g...

40.Tanoh Kpassagnon: Notches four sacks in 2019 (RotoWire) Kpassagnon racked up 29 tackles (21 solo), four sacks, two defended passes and one forced fumble (which he recovered) across 16 regular-season games in 2019. Analysis: Kpassagnon set career-high marks across the board in 2019, elevating above a reserve role for the first time since being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He played at least 70 percent of snaps on defense in nine of the Chiefs' final 10 regular-season tilts, and throughout the team's postseason run. In three playoff appearances, Kpassagnon notched five tackles (three solo) and two sacks.19 hours
41.Taylor insists Bengals want to keep Gree... (Rotoworld) Bengals coach Zac Taylor insists the team wants to keep impending free agent A.J. Green. Analysis: "We’re still working through that process," Taylor said. "He’s a guy that we are excited about to a part of this team, first and foremost. ... But right now, we expect him to be a part of the team." The "right now" is an obvious hedge, but Green seems to have cooled on his opposition to the franchise tag. The rebuilding Bengals would seem to have much incentive to let Green walk, but the Bengals rarely do the logical thing. Going on 30, Green has appeared in... (More)19 hours
42.NFL expected to unilaterally expand play... (Rotoworld) The Washington Post's Mark Maske reports the league is expected to expand the 2020 postseason to 14 teams "even if the players fail to ratify the proposed CBA." Analysis: Per Maske, "the owners, in their view, don't need to the players' approval of that." We would assume that is very much up for debate. The owners are being quite heavy handed in their handoff of CBA talks to the NFLPA. The owners tentatively approved the "principal elements" of a new agreement on Thursday. They are quite publicly trying to force their employees' hand. 19 hours
43.Redskins release Jordan Reed after 7 sea... (Rotoworld) Redskins released TE Jordan Reed. Analysis: The move comes after seven seasons, and sadly Reed's seventh documented concussion as a pro. This one cost him all of 2019. He cleared the protocol just this week. The move clears $8.5 million in cap space while leaving behind only $1.8 million in dead money. Still five months shy of his 30th birthday, Reed was on an early-career trajectory to be one of the best tight ends of the decade, but even beyond the head issues, injuries have absolutely wrecked his career. He has never appeared in more than 14 games, and has cleared 12 just twice in se... (More)20 hours
44.Jordan Reed released by the Redskins (FantasyPros) Jordan Reed was released by the Redskins on Thursday. Analysis: Reed missed the entire 2019 campaign due to a concussion he suffered back in the preseason. The move will save the Redskins $8.5 million. Reed just cleared concussion protocol last week and still wants to continue his NFL career. The 29-year old has a lengthy injury history and will look to latch onto another team.20 hours
45.Jordan Reed: Finally cut by Washington (RotoWire) Reed was released by Washington on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: The transaction saves the team $8.5 million and leaves a $1.8 million dead-cap charge behind, helping create more flexibility after the recent cuts of CB Josh Norman and WR Paul Richardson. Reed finally managed to clear the NFL's concussion protocol earlier this week, after missing the entire 2019 campaign with a head injury he suffered during the preseason. The veteran tight end will turn 30 in July, and while his lengthy injury history inspired rumors of retirement, Reed reportedly wants to continue his NFL career in 2020 (per John Keim of ESPN.com)... (More)20 hours
46.Broncos | Will Parks expected to receive interest (thehuddle) Denver Broncos impending free-agent S Will Parks is expected to receive interest from multiple teams during free agency, according to sources. 20 hours
47.49ers | Levine Toilolo may return (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent TE Levine Toilolo could be re-signed this offseason because of his blocking ability, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. 20 hours
48.Darron Lee: Just 31 tackles in 2019 (RotoWire) Lee notched 31 tackles (22 solo) across 16 regular-season games in 2019. Analysis: Lee averaged 80 tackles per season for the Jets from 2016-18, but he was relegated to a depth role in his inaugural season with the Chiefs, logging a career-low 161 defensive snaps despite playing a full 16-game slate for the first time. He looks set for a similar reserve role in 2020.20 hours
49.Brown's Raiders grievance gets timeframe (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports a hearing has been scheduled for May in Antonio Brown's grievance against the Raiders Analysis: Brown is trying to recoup lost wages following his release. He had been due $30 million in guarantees. Brown has also filed a grievance against the Patriots that has yet to be given a date. Brown's NFL future will now take place in hearings, not the football field.20 hours
50.Anthony Sherman: Logs four carries in 2019 (RotoWire) Sherman carried the ball four times for nine yards and had two catches for 22 yards across 16 regular-season games in 2019. Analysis: Sherman served as the Chiefs' top fullback during the 2019 season, doing most of his damage on offense as a blocker. He also played a key role on special teams, logging 310 snaps during the regular season. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, but the team could be motivated to come to terms on a deal that would bring him back for an eighth season in Kansas City.21 hours
51.Broncos | Andy Janovich on track for workouts (thehuddle) Denver Broncos FB Andy Janovich (elbow) is expected to be ready for the start of offseason workouts. 21 hours
52.Browns | Odell Beckham should be healthy soon (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) should be completely recovered from his core muscle surgery in about a month, according to a source. Analysis: It appears like Beckham should be ready of offseason workouts as long as he does not suffer a setback. He will be working under a new offensive scheme next season but is still one of the top receivers in the NFL. He will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues in 2020. 22 hours
53.Redskins | Jordan Reed cut (thehuddle) Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was released Thursday, Feb. 20, according to a source. Analysis: Reed wants to play next season, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He probably will receive interest from teams but is a risky option because of his injury history. Reed could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues if he starts for a team.22 hours
54.NFL | Antonio Brown to have May grievance hearing (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is scheduled to have his grievance against the Oakland Raiders heard by an arbitrator in May, according to a source. 23 hours
55.Derrick Nnadi: Improves in sophomore campaign (RotoWire) Nnadi racked up 48 tackles (18 solo), a sack, an interception and a forced fumble during his 16-game 2019 campaign. Analysis: Nnadi's improved production in his second professional season corresponded with an increase of more than 150 snaps recorded. With Chris Jones a candidate to hit free agency this offseason, there's a chance that Nnadi could slide into an even more prominent role on the defensive line next season. However, there's a good chance the Chiefs will extend Jones, which would likely result in a similar role for Nnadi next season.23 hours
56.Chad Henne: No action in 2019 (RotoWire) Henne did not record an offensive snap during the 2019 season. Analysis: Henne served as the No. 3 option on Kansas City's roster behind Patrick Mahomes and Matt Moore in 2019. Even during the three-game span in which Mahomes was sidelined due to a dislocated kneecap, Henne's duties never extended beyond serving as Moore's backup. The 34-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.23 hours
57.Matt Moore: Solid as backup in 2019 (RotoWire) Moore completed 59 of 91 pass attempts for 659 yards and four touchdowns in six appearances -- including two starts -- in the 2019 regular season. He didn't play a snap during the postseason. Analysis: Moore led Kansas City's offense on three occasions while Patrick Mahomes was sidelined with a dislocated kneecap, and he did enough to carve out two wins during that span while logging a 4:0 TD:INT ratio. Given his success when called upon as a backup last season, the Chiefs may be inclined to pursue another contract to keep the 35-year-old signal-caller around for 2020.23 hours
58.Kendall Fuller: Sees dip in production during 2019 (RotoWire) Fuller finished the 2019 season with 49 tackles (34 solo) and one sack over 11 games played. Analysis: Fuller played a second consecutive season in the slot for Kansas City but averaged just 46.1 snaps per contest after logging 71.9 per contest in 2018. The result was a significant drop in his fantasy production, with him notching 33 tackles fewer than he did in his first year with the Chiefs in 2018. The 25-year-old corner is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so there's a chance he could see a spike in production in 2020 if he lands elsewhere.1 day
59.Report: WAS refused new contract for Dun... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar reached out to the team to discuss a reasonable contract restructure, but Washington declined the conversation. Analysis: Dunbar previously denied rumors that he requested a release or trade. It's fair for the Redskins' No. 1 CB to want some sort of financial security entering his contract year, although historically Ron Rivera's defense hasn't made a habit of utilizing high-priced corners. Dunbar finished the 2019 season as PFF's No. 2 overall CB, but (like No. 1 CB Richard Sherman) never made a habit of traveling with the oppon... (More)1 day
60.Russell Okung 'skeptical' of future with... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Chargers LT Russell Okung "remains skeptical of the team's direction and his future with the team." Analysis: Anderson added that Okung has expressed his uncertainty in the direction of the organization, but the team has attempted to reassure him. It's the latest news of dysfunction in an organization that has been full of it during the last two decades. It remains to be seen if Okung's concerns are serious enough to warrant a trade request. He graded out as PFF's No. 59 overall tackle among 88 qualified players in 2019.1 day
61.Raiders | Derek Carr trade a possibility (thehuddle) Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr recently posted an photo on Instagram of himself talking with Chicago Bears DL Khalil Mack following a game last season, and the post is part of speculation that Carr could be traded to the Bears this offseason and reunited with Mack. Analysis: The Bears have said they expect Mitchell Trubisky to be their 2020 starter, but they also said he could have competition in the QB room, and Carr would certainly provide as much. Stay tuned ... 1 day
62.Redskins | Quinton Dunbar rebuffed by team (thehuddle) Washington Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar recently reached out to the team to discuss a possible contract restructure, but the club declined to engage in a conversation, according to sources, and he remains 'resolute' in his desire to be released or traded.1 day
63.Buccaneers | Bucs weighing Jameis Winston options (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston, a pending free agent, could be offered a two-year deal by the Buccaneers with the first year guaranteed and the second year being a team option, according to sources. The first year would pay Winston roughly the same as a franchise tag ($27 million). Analysis: Winston threw for a career-high 5,109 yards, 33 TDs last season -- and yes, 30 interceptions -- to finish as a top-five fantasy QB for the first time in five seasons. A return to the Bucs would definitely keep him in the QB1 conversation, but a move to another team would necessitate a full re-evaluation of his fantasy status.1 day
64.Everson Griffen: Looking toward free agency (RotoWire) Griffen has exercised the right to opt out of his current contract, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports. Analysis: Griffen met multiple performance thresholds in 2019 that opened the door for him to opt out, and a source ultimately told ESPN that the veteran lineman intends to do so. While the 32-year-old was a key piece of the defense last year with 41 combined tackles and eight sacks through 15 games, he would have represented a potential $12.9 million cap hit for 2020, which could have resulted in him being a cap casualty given Minnesota's financial situation (it was projected to be over the cap in double digits).1 day
65.Jarvis Landry: Undergoes surgery after all (RotoWire) Landry ultimately changed his mind and decided to undergo hip surgery Feb. 4, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Analysis: Landry was planning to forego the surgery as recently as the Super Bowl according to Cabot, but he eventually changed his mind and decided on the procedure that comes with a 6-to-8-month recovery timetable. This leaves the door open for availability at the start of training camp in late July, though the organization and new head coach Kevin Stefanski are optimistic Landry might be available on a limited basis this spring. After a procedure that was considered successful, all signs point to a fu... (More)1 day
66.Report: Everson Griffen voiding contract (Rotoworld) ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports Vikings DE Everson Griffen will void the remainder of his contract. Analysis: Per Cronin, "Griffen met two figures that voided the final three years of his contract (2020-22) by tallying six or more sacks and playing 57% or more of the snaps last season, and he exercised the right to opt out of his deal." The Vikings' stud DE racked up 66 pressures in 2019 and formed one of the league's most-fearsome duos among edge rushers alongside Danielle Hunter. Minnesota has done a great job maintaining continuity on the defensive side of the ball in recent ... (More)1 day
67.Will Dissly expected to be ready for Week 1 (FantasyPros) The Seahawks told reporters that they expect Will Dissly to be ready for Week 1 of the 2020 season. Analysis: Dissly tore his Achilles in November and required surgery which ended his season. He was off to a promising start for the Seahawks and fantasy owners. The team recently signed veteran Greg Olsen and has Jacob Hollister, who was decent in his own right in 2019, on the roster. This is a tricky situation for fantasy purposes, and it could be a committee approach at an already weak position in 2020.1 day
68.Josh Rosen expected back in Miami (FantasyPros) Josh Rosen is expected to return to the Dolphins in 2020 rather than being traded over the offseason. Analysis: Given the struggles that Rosen continued to display in 2019, there is little indication that another team would be willing to give up enough for Miami to consider trading the former first-round pick. The Dolphins are also expected to spend a 2020 first-rounder on a quarterback, making Rosen once again a reserve player on a rebuilding team.1 day
69.Stefon Diggs trade considered 'long shot' (FantasyPros) The Vikings trading wide receiver Stefon Diggs this offseason is considered a "long shot." Analysis: Diggs has made his frustrations known with the run-first offense and team in general, though he continues to produce and Minnesota looks to again be a contender in the NFC. It's hard to imagine why the Vikings would trade Diggs since he's continued to produce. If he remains in Minnesota, he'll likely continue to be a volatile WR2 for fantasy purposes.1 day
70.Jordan Reed expected to be released by Washington (FantasyPros) Jordan Reed has cleared concussion protocol, and he will reportedly aim to continue his playing career after his expected release from Washington. Analysis: Reed has been extremely frustrating to own for fantasy purposes given his injury issues and the upside that he has flashed. His concussion issues will likely continue to limit his fantasy value moving forward, but he could produce in the right landing spot. He'll be an interesting player to monitor this offseason in what's become a shallow pool of fantasy-relevant tight ends.1 day
71.Demetrius Harris signs with Bears (FantasyPros) Demetrius Harris signed a one-year deal with the Bears. Harris was recently released by the Browns. Analysis: Harris spent time with Bears head coach Matt Nagy when both were in Kansas City. Chicago figured to address their tight end situation this offseason given the fact that Trey Burton has failed to live up to expectations and Adam Shaheen continues to deal with injuries. Still, Harris isn't likely to be fantasy relevant.1 day
72.Jarvis Landry underwent hip surgery (FantasyPros) Jarvis Landry underwent surgery on his hip this offseason. He expects to be back "at some point" during the team's training camp. Analysis: It seems like Landry was back-and-forth regarding undergoing surgery or not this offseason. He ultimately opted for the procedure, and it would seem that he should be ready to go for the start of the regular season. Still, it will be worth monitoring his progress this offseason as camp approaches.1 day
73.Jarvis Landry underwent offseason hip su... (Rotoworld) Browns WR Jarvis Landry underwent offseason hip surgery. Analysis: Landry was banged up for a large portion of the 2019 regular season. The good news is he's reportedly expected to be back at some point during training camp. Still, hip surgery is far from ideal for any player, particularly one that relies so much on their after-the-catch ability. Landry was one of the only bright spots of last season's Browns, as he posted a season-long 83-1174-6 line while averaging a stellar 8.5 yards per target.1 day
74.Jarvis Landry undergoes hip surgery (FFToday) Browns’ WR Jarvis Landry underwent hip surgery earlier this month. The team expects him to make a full recovery for the 2020 season. Analysis: Landry posted an 83-1174-6 line in 2019 outpacing (74-1035-4). Landry finished as the WR12 in PPR leagues while Beckham finished as the WR25. Both Browns receiver will be rehabbing this off-season as Beckham had surgery to repair a core muscle injury back in January.1 day
75.Vikings | Everson Griffen opts out (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen met two milestones with six sacks and playing 57 percent of the snaps that voided the final three years of his deal. The move freed up $13 million in salary cap space. 1 day
76.Browns | Jarvis Landry underwent hip surgery (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (hip) changed his mind and underwent hip surgery this week. He's expected to be back at some time in training camp. Analysis: Landry's 83-1174-6 showing was one of the better showings of his career, and his 14.1 yards per catch was a career high. He's a low-end WR2 or a high-end WR3 in PPR leagues. 1 day
77.Dynasty | Demetrius Harris signs with Bears (Dynasty League Football) The Bears agreed to terms with former Browns tight end Demetrius Harris. Analysis: It's a one-year deal for the 28 year old who did little to elevate his stock with a 15/149/3 stat line in 2019 with the Browns. It's a nearly identical performance to that of 2018 when with Kansas City. Never having produced more than 225 yards or three touchdowns, Harris is a prototypical back-up tight end who could have a chance at a 'career' year in 2020 considering the other uninspiring options currently in Chicago. He won't be gua... (More)1 day
78.Dynasty | Adrian Peterson stays in Washington (Dynasty League Football) As expected, the Redskins exercised Adrian Peterson's 2020 option Analysis: Peterson rushed for 898 yards and five touchdowns and doesn't appear to have lost a step as he fights father time. He turns 35 in March. While not a high volume producer any longer, he can still put up the occasional one hundred yard or multiple touchdown game and is best used as a last-flex RB4 with upside. DLF's RB70, Peterson is best owned by competitive dynasty teams only.1 day
79.Patriots | Nate Ebner wants to stay put (thehuddle) Impending free-agent S Nate Ebner (Patriots) is one of 19 New England Patriots set to hit free agency this spring, but he is hopeful the two sides will be able to come together on a contract that will keep him with the team that drafted him in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. 1 day
80.Bears pick up TE Demetrius Harris (FFToday) The #Bears have added a free agent before free agency begins, agreeing to terms on a 1-year deal with former #Browns TE Demetrius Harris, sources say. The athletic Harris spent time with coach Matt Nagy when both were in Kansas City, as Chicago begins to upgrade the TE position. Analysis: Harris is far off the fantasy radar unless he becomes a starter in Chicago. Even then the Bears passing attack only allows for an inconsistent TE2 in fantasy. Head coach Matt Nagy is familiar with Harris after the two spent time together in Kansas City. Trey Burton and Adam Shaheen struggl... (More)1 day
81.CBA proposes to expand postseason to 7 t... (Rotoworld) According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the new CBA proposal is expected to include expansion for the playoffs, adding a seventh team per conference. Analysis: As it stands now, six teams per conference make the postseason, with the Nos. 1 and 2 seeds in each conference earning first-round byes. Under the new scenario, which would go into effect this year, seven teams per conference would qualify for the playoffs, but only the No. 1 seeds in each league would get the bye. Per Schefter, there is increasing optimism the new CBA will be hammered out in the very near future.1 day
82.Ben Niemann: Settles in as rotational linebacker (RotoWire) Niemann collected 56 tackles (35 solo) and one pass defensed during the 2019 season. Analysis: While teams are utilizing linebacker-heavy packages much less often in a pass-driven league, Niemann did log north of 400 defensive snaps in 2019 thanks to Anthony Hitchens missing a pair of games in the middle of the season. Niemann should serve in a similar role next season but could see his playing time increase if one or more starting linebackers miss time.1 day
83.Daniel Sorensen: Role reduced in 2020 (RotoWire) Sorensen finished 2019 with 57 tackles (44 solo) and two interceptions over 16 regular-season games Analysis: Sorensen possessed the starting job in 2017 and then again in 2018 in what was an injury-shortened campaign for him. The team decided to reinforce the safety spot this offseason by investing free agent dollar into acquiring Tyrann Mathieu and then spending draft capital in the form of a second-round pick on Juan Thornhill. The rookie secured the starting job in training camp, leaving Sorensen in more of an ancillary role in the defensive backfield. However, a late-season torn ACL for Thornhill could result in Sorensen opening... (More)1 day
84.Vikings | Stefon Diggs unlikely to get moved (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs may be the subject of some trade calls this offseason, but he faces 'plenty long' odds of getting traded, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Diggs recently prompted discussion about potential unhappiness with his situation when he removed Vikings photos from his social media accounts.1 day
85.Demetrius Harris: Lands in Chicago (RotoWire) Harris signed a contract with the Bears on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Harris was cut by the Browns on Monday, and he wasted little time in agreeing to terms with the Bears. The 28-year-old tight end, who previously spent time with head coach Matt Nagy while in Kansas City, now joins a Chicago tight end corps that's struggled to attain consistency with Trey Burton (hip) and Adam Shaheen (foot) in back-to-back seasons. He caught 15 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games in Cleveland last year.1 day
86.Bears sign Demetrius Harris to one-year ... (Rotoworld) Bears signed TE Demetrius Harris to a one-year contract. Analysis: Harris lands on his feet only 48 hours after Cleveland announced his release. Previously inked to a two-year deal by former Browns GM John Dorsey, Harris totaled 15/149/3 receiving in his lone season with the team's old regime. 29 in July, Harris is more than familiar with coach Matt Nagy's scheme stemming from their time together in Kansas City. Chicago's tight ends room remains a looming question mark with Trey Burton (fresh off hip surgery) and Adam Shaheen sitting out 15 games due to injuries last year.1 day
87.Meeting for new CBA to occur later this ... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Mike Silver reports NFL owners have been notified of a meeting regarding the status of the CBA to be held later this week. Analysis: The NFL Players Association and league's owners have reportedly made "significant progress" towards a new CBA, but the two sides remain far apart on some outstanding issues. Assuming all goes well in said meeting, Silver notes the new deal could be settled prior to March 18 and launch a 17-game regular season sometime between 2021 and 2023. With national networks chomping at the bit to bid on expiring television deals, it remains in the best interest of everyone involved to finaliz... (More)1 day
88.Charvarius Ward: Plays primary role in 2020 (RotoWire) Ward posted 74 tackles (56 solo), two interceptions and a forced fumble in 2019. Analysis: After logging just 140 defensive snaps in 2018, Ward claimed a starting spot this season and took advantage of the opportunity. The second-year corner allowed just a 57.5 opposing quarterback rating to go along with just a 41.2 completion percentage and a 1:2 TD:INT ratio on passes tossed his direction. Ward still has another year left on his contract and figures to retain his starting job in 2020. Bashaud Breeland enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, so it remains to be seen who will line up across from Ward.1 day
89.Tyrann Mathieu: Compiles another impressive season (RotoWire) Mathieu totaled 75 tackles (63 solo), four interceptions and two sacks during the 2019 season. Analysis: Mathieu fell 14 tackles short of his one-year output with the Texans in 2018, but he did double his pick total from the previous campaigns and continues to supply a bonus as a willing rusher of the quarterback. Mathieu has two years remaining on the contract he signed with the Chiefs prior to 2019, so Mathieu should retain his spot at the back end of the Kansas City defense next season.1 day
90.Stefon Diggs: Likely staying with Vikings (RotoWire) Diggs isn't likely to be traded this offseason, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Diggs has a penchant for posting vague/cryptic tweets, which have led to speculation he isn't happy in Minnesota, a story that first gained steam in October after he skipped a practice. His frustration may have been related to the team's run-heavy offense, something that fellow wide receiver Adam Thielen also took issue with. The Vikings quickly found a better balance and won eight of their next 11 games to secure a playoff berth, with Kirk Cousins averaging 260.7 passing yards and 2.1 passing touchdowns in that stretch. Diggs averaged 4.5... (More)1 day
91.Cameron Batson: Inks one-year extension (RotoWire) Batson (undisclosed) signed a one-year contract extension with the Titans on Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Batson spent the entire 2019 campaign on injury reserve due to an undisclosed issue suffered last July, but he now looks back to full health. He hauled in eight catches for 82 yards across 11 games with Tennessee as a rookie in 2018, and he'll now spend the offseason competing for a depth role for 2020.1 day
92.Titans ink WR Batson to a one-year exten... (Rotoworld) Titans signed WR Cameron Batson to a one-year contract extension.1 day
93.Texans and NT Brandon Dunn agree to exte... (Rotoworld) Texans signed NT Brandon Dunn to a contract extension.1 day
94.Baker Mayfield: Focusing on footwork (RotoWire) Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said Wednesday that he intends to zero in on improving Mayfield's footwork during the offseason, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Coming off a deflating sophomore season in which issues with accuracy and decision-making overshadowed Mayfield's occasional flash plays, Cleveland's top offseason priority will no doubt be to set the signal-caller up for better success in Year 3. Improved footwork technique could certainly assist in bolstering Mayfield's efficiency and mobility within the pocket, but the larger determining factor for his prosperity in 2020 will no doubt be how well he adapts ... (More)1 day
95.Michael Roberts: Lands in Miami (RotoWire) Roberts (shoulder) signed a contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Roberts appears back to full health after having undergone shoulder surgery last August, and he'll now get a chance to compete for a role in Miami. The 25-year-old flashed at times during his first two seasons with Detroit, scoring three times in 2018 despite hauling in just eight passes, but a lack of consistency led to his ultimately being waived by the team following a failed trade to New England.1 day
96.Jordan Reed cleared from concussion prot... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Ben Standig reports Jordan Reed has been cleared from the league's concussion protocol. Analysis: Reed's latest concussion — his seventh in as many seasons in the league — sidelined him for the entirety of the 2019 season after he took a nasty hit from Falcons safety Keanu Neal in an exhibition contest. Standig adds that while Reed himself fully expects to be released by Washington in the coming days, he's told those close to him that he intends on continuing his career and playing elsewhere next season. 30 in July, Reed's inevitable release will free up $8.5 million ...

97.Dolphins sign former Lions TE Michael Ro... (Rotoworld) Dolphins signed TE Michael Roberts. Analysis: Initially headed to the Patriots in June for a Day 3 pick, Roberts surprisingly failed his physical with the team, forcing Detroit to release him the ensuing afternoon. He landed with the Packers a few days later but failed to make their final 53-man roster. Only one season removed from hauling in 9/100/3 as a burly (6'4/270) goal-line read, the Dolphins simply have their fingers crossed Roberts' practice habits finally catch up to his enticing athleticism.1 day
98.Will Dissly: Expected to be ready for Week 1 (RotoWire) The Seahawks "fully expect" Dissly (Achilles) to be healthy in time for Week 1 of the 2020 regular season, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Dissly is coming off a torn Achilles sustained early last October, his second consecutive season-ending injury after suffering a torn patellar tendon as a rookie in 2018. Though the 23-year-old still has a long road ahead in his recovery, it appears as though he's making significant progress and has a real shot at returning to full health in time to kick off the 2020 regular season. With Seattle having inked veteran tight end Greg Olsen to a one-year deal, however, it remains to be... (More)1 day
99.Bears | Chicago adding Demetrius Harris (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Demetrius Harris (Browns) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, Feb. 19, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed. 1 day
100.Vikings are unlikely to part ways with D... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said it is currently a long shot for the Vikings to part ways with Stefon Diggs. Analysis: Diggs has expressed frustration with the team, particularly with Kirk Cousins, but that doesn't mean the Vikings are done with him. Minnesota feels that they're close to a title, so trading their stud receiver away would essentially close out their championship window. Pelissero still expects teams to call the Vikings about a trade but notes things are unlikely to go anywhere at the momemnt. Things could change, especially if Diggs continues to drum up attention off the... (More)1 day
