1.Dynasty | Golden Tate cut by New York (Dynasty League Football) The Giants have released wide receiver Golden Tate. Analysis: As expected. Tate was ineffective last season with just 35 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns. When you combine his mediocre performance with a suspension he incurred for complaining about targets and the fact the Giants are saving $6 million with the move and it's was likely an easy decision. The 32-year old Tate is no longer the slot dynamo he once was, but he could provide a decent veteran presence on a team. Seattle is rumored to have interest, but Tate is unlikely to b...

2.Dynasty | Jared Cook released by New Orleans (Dynasty League Football) The New Orleans Saints have released tight end Jared Cook. Analysis: New Orleans also cut tight end Josh Hill in a corresponding move. Neither tight end ever proved to be the replacement for Jimmy Graham and Cook didn't help himself with a brutal playoff performance this season. The 33-year old will now be looking for a sixth place to call him after stops in Tennessee, St. Louis (Los Angeles), Green Bay, Oakland (Las Vegas), and New Orleans. He's proven to be a serviceable player, but has never caught more than 68 passes, posted more t... (More)4 hours
3.Dynasty | Tyrell Williams signs with Detroit (Dynasty League Football) The Lions have signed former Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams. Analysis: Williams missed all of last season with a torn labrum but has proven to be a decent weapon when healthy. The Raiders are clearly looking to make a big splash at the position through free agency or the draft and have a lot of young players, so Williams was expendable. The Lions seem to be happy to grab him and paid him a decent amount as his contract is worth $6.2 million for the upcoming year. Williams would have some sneaky dynasty value if the Lions are unable to br... (More)5 hours
4.Ravens | Marlon Humphrey a force at CB (thehuddle) Baltimore Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey led the NFL with eight forced fumbles in 2020, and his 2.5 sacks and 70 solo tackles were tied for second among cornerbacks.6 hours
5.Cardinals | Kenyan Drake piling up TDs for Arizona (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB Kenyan Drake has scored 18 rushing touchdowns in 23 games with Arizona after scoring nine rushing touchdowns in 54 games with the Miami Dolphins. Analysis: Although Drake found the end zone 10 times in 2020, he averaged just 4.0 yards per carry and was used sparingly in the passing game. There is a good chance Drake is playing elsewhere in 2021, but no matter where he signs, he is unlikely to be given the volume needed to even reach RB2 status.8 hours
6.Patriots | Damien Harris effective on the ground (thehuddle) New England Patriots RB Damien Harris ranked 12th among running backs with 69.1 rushing yards per game and seventh with 5.0 yards per carry in 2020. Analysis: Harris emerged as New England's top back on early downs before suffering an ankle injury late in the year, but between Bill Belichick's tendency to use a committee in the backfield and Harris' complete lack of involvement in the passing game, it is hard to view him as more than a speculative RB3 heading into 2021.8 hours
7.The Giants are releasing Golden Tate, per Schefter (FantasyPros) Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the New York Giants are releasing WR Golden Tate. Analysis: With the release of Tate on Wednesday, the move will save the Giants $6.2 million in cap space. The veteran WR spent two seasons with the franchise recording 84 receptions for 1,064 yards and eight touchdowns. Tate will likely garner heavy interest from teams in free agency.8 hours
8.Josh Hill officially released by the Saints (FantasyPros) The Saints officially released TE Josh Hill. Analysis: Hill had a limited role in the Saints offense, hauling in just eight receptions for 46 yards and one touchdown across 14 games in 2020. He was primarily used as a blocking tight end and clearly behind recently released Jared Cook on the depth chart. Hill will look to latch onto another team this offseason after spending his entire career in New Orleans.9 hours
9.Sam Darnold: Jets 'will answer the call' when teams call about Darnold (FantasyPros) Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports that Jets GM Joe Douglas when answer the call when teams injury about Same Darnold. Analysis: This is not a surprise. Darnold was not very productive in his 3rd season in the NFL. He threw nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions while only playing in 12 games in 2020. It's unclear if Darnold will get a starting spot if he's traded.10 hours
10.Trent Brown being shopped by the Raiders, per Rapoport (FantasyPros) According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Las Vegas Raiders have had talks with teams around the league about potentially trading LT Trent Brown. Analysis: With Brown remaining on a big contract that pays him over $14 million dollars a year, the Raiders are rumored to be shopping the star left tackle. According to Raiders general manager Mike Mayock, he and the team still believe that Brown can be an elite-level top-end lineman when healthy. If the Raiders trade or release the veteran LT, they will save $14 million against the cap this season.10 hours
11.Jared Cook: Time up in New Orleans (RotoWire) The Saints terminated Cook's contract Wednesday, John Hendrix of SI.com reports. Analysis: Cook was bound for free agency this offseason regardless, so cutting him now simply allows the veteran tight end to immediately begin his search for a new home. The 33-year-old had a somewhat down year in 2020, with a modest 37 catches for 504 yards -- his lowest totals since 2016 -- but he remained effective in the red zone, with seven total touchdowns. His departure leaves 2020 third-round pick Adam Trautman as the Saints' presumptive starting tight end heading into 2021.11 hours
12.Jared Cook officially released by Saints (FantasyPros) The Saints officially released TE Jared Cook. Analysis: The team also released TE Josh Hill. The Cook move is a procedural one as he was due an $8.04 million roster bonus on the second day of the new league year. Adam Trautman is a name to watch in New Orleans entering his sophomore campaign.11 hours
13.Giants | David Mayo removed from roster (thehuddle) New York Giants LB David Mayo was released Wednesday, March 3, according to a source. 11 hours
14.Tyrell Williams: Inking deal with Detroit (RotoWire) Williams (shoulder) is signing a one-year contract with the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Signed by the Raiders to a four-year, $44 million contract two years ago, Williams put up 42/651/6 in 2019 before missing the entire 2020 campaign with a shoulder labrum injury. Las Vegas then released him in late February, making the 29-year-old wideout immediately eligible to sign with a new team. It took Williams about a week to find his home, joining the new-look Lions with Jared Goff at QB, Dan Campbell as head coach and both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones scheduled for free agency this spring. Williams' deal reportedly i... (More)11 hours
15.Giants | Golden Tate let go (thehuddle) New York Giants WR Golden Tate was released Wednesday, March 3, according to a source. Analysis: Tate posted only 388 yards this past season and has missed nine games over the last two seasons. He should find a new team this offseason but can be avoided in fantasy leagues. 12 hours
16.Patriots | Kyle Rudolph interested in Pats (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Kyle Rudolph (Vikings) is interested in signing with the New England Patriots, according to a source. 12 hours
17.Tyrell Williams agrees to one-year, $6.2M deal with Lions (FantasyPros) Former Raiders WR Tyrell Williams has reached an agreement on a one-year, up to $6.2M deal with the Detroit Lions. Analysis: With uncertainty surrounding both Marvin Jones Jr. and Kenny Golladay's futures in Detroit, the Lions go out and snag one of the more talented wide receivers on the open market in Williams. He didn't play a single snap for the Raiders in 2020 due to injury, but scored six touchdowns in 14 games for them in 2019. Williams has a 1,000-yard season under his belt from the 2016 campaign with the Chargers, so we know he's got some talent. Solid pickup for the Lions and a nice payday for a guy who didn't play a ...

18.Rob Gronkowski: Solid candidate for '21 return (RotoWire) Gronkowski, who played the 2020 season on a one-year, $10 million deal, is a strong candidate for a return to the Buccaneers next season if he's willing to continue his career, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The multi-time Pro Bowler ultimately proved an ideal fit in his return from a one-year retirement, unsurprisingly meshing well with Tom Brady and checking in as a superior blocker for the running game. Gronkowski's final 45/623/7 regular-season line was a mere shadow of some of those he produced during his Patriots heyday, but that appeared to largely be a byproduct of what was much more of a complementary role by de...

19.Shaquil Barrett: Contract crossroads on tap (RotoWire) Barrett, a pending unrestricted free agent, may not be able to garner the type of payday he's hoping for through either the franchise tag or on a long-term deal in Tampa Bay, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Barrett's situation will be one of the most intriguing to monitor on a Buccaneers roster that has several big names on the cusp of unrestricted free agency. The 28-year-old edge rusher saw his sack total drop from 2019's 19.5 to eight in 2020 while playing on the franchise tag, which netted him a salary of $15.8 million. Barrett proclaimed he'd be returning to the defending champions in the aftermath of Tampa Bay's Supe... (More)12 hours
20.Broncos | Justin Simmons wants to return (thehuddle) Denver Broncos impending free-agent S Justin Simmons said he wants to re-sign with the Broncos, and it seems like the team wants him back. 12 hours
21.Patriots | Kyle Van Noy open to joining NE (thehuddle) Free-agent DE Kyle Van Noy (Dolphins) is open to signing with the New England Patriots this offseason, according to a source. 12 hours
22.Chris Godwin: Would play on franchise tag (RotoWire) Godwin recently indicated he'd be willing to play the 2021 season under the franchise tag if necessary, which seems to be "where things are headed" between him and the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The fifth-year veteran would earn a salary in the neighborhood of $16.5 million for 2021 if he ultimately played under the tag, a figure that undoubtedly helps make the situation palatable as a trade-off for the longer-term security of a multi-year deal. In Godwin's case, Laine notes the plan is to keep the Penn State product on the roster for many seasons into the future anyhow, so the 25-year-old seems to have li... (More)12 hours
23.J.P. Holtz: Re-ups with Bears (RotoWire) Chicago re-signed Holtz on Wednesday. Analysis: Holtz, who was an exclusive rights free agent, will officially remain with the Bears. He suited up for all 16 regular-season games in 2020, but handled the majority of snaps on special teams or as an occasional blocker on offense. He was targeted just once in that span.12 hours
24.Ryan Nall: Retained by Chicago (RotoWire) The Bears re-signed Nall on Wednesday. Analysis: Nall entered the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see him sticking with the Bears. He mostly saw action on special teams in 2020, only logging three carries across 16 regular-season games.12 hours
25.Delanie Walker: Planning return to NFL (RotoWire) Walker intends to play football in 2021, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Walker was out of the league in 2020, after a pair of right ankle injuries limited to eight total games and 267 receiving yards between 2018 and 2019. The tight end reportedly started training for the 2020 campaign and received interest from multiple teams, but he never ended up signing anywhere -- a decision that may have been related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In any case, Walker will turn 37 in August and might need to compete for his roster spot even if he finds a contract with some guaranteed money. He was 33 years old the last time he had a produc... (More)13 hours
26.J.T. Gray: Staying in New Orleans (RotoWire) Gray agreed Wednesday with the Saints on a two-year, $4 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Gray was set to become a restricted free agent, but he'll stay put after re-upping with New Orleans on a deal containing $2 million guaranteed. The 25-year-old has been a key contributor on special teams for the Saints since 2019.13 hours
27.Raiders | GM would like Nelson Agholor back (thehuddle) Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent WR Nelson Agholor is a player the Raiders would like to re-sign this offseason, according to general manager Mike Mayock. Analysis: Agholor is coming off one of the best seasons in his career with 896 yards and eight touchdowns in 2020. He will receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.13 hours
28.Delanie Walker plans to play in 2021 after opting out of 2020 season (FantasyPros) Adam Schefter is reporting that Delanie Walker is planning to come back as a free agent in 2021 after sitting out the 2020 season due to COVID-19 and health concerns. Analysis: Walker was one of the bigger names to opt-out of the 2020 season but appears healthy and ready to get back to the field next season. Now 36 years old, Walker probably won't be the dominant tight end he was from 2014 to 2017 when he had four straight seasons with 800-plus receiving yards. Between 2018 and 2019, Walker only suited up for eight total games and five starts as he battled through a ... (More)13 hours
29.Browns | Odell Beckham on track (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) is on track with his recovery, according to general manager Andrew Berry. Analysis: Beckham should be ready for training camp and will work on regaining a connection with Baker Mayfield. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when healthy and can be a weekly starting option in all leagues. 13 hours
30.Jacob Eason: Getting work in with receivers (RotoWire) Eason is currently training with teammates Michael Pittman and Dezmon Patmon, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Analysis: Eason didn't get an opportunity to make his NFL debut during his rookie season in 2020, but with Philip Rivers electing to retire and with Jacoby Brissett set for free agency, the young signal-caller should at the very least be in strong position to open 2021 as the No. 2 option on the depth chart behind the newly acquired Carson Wentz. The 23-year-old will look to impress in OTAs, training camp and the preseason to ensure he maintains his placement on the depth chart.13 hours
31.Patriots | New England may consider Jared Cook (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Saints) could be a target for the New England Patriots this offseason, in the opinion of NESN's Zack Cox. Analysis: The Patriots used multiple tight ends this season but none of them posted 200 receiving yards. Cook can still be a productive pass catcher for a team but probably will not be more than a No. 2 fantasy tight end. 13 hours
32.Football Team | Thomas Davis let go (thehuddle) Washington Football Team LB Thomas Davis was released Wednesday, March 3. 13 hours
33.Saints | Josh Hill cut (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill was released Wednesday, March 3. 13 hours
34.Saints | Jared Cook released (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook was released Wednesday, March 3. Analysis: Cook was scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, so he can start talking to teams now instead of waiting a few more weeks. He should receive some interest from teams and can be a solid pass catcher for a team. Cook probably will be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues next season.13 hours
35.Cardinals | No timetable for Larry Fitzgerald (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Larry Fitzgerald does not need to make a decision about his future before the start of free agency, according to general manager Steve Keim. 14 hours
36.Sam Darnold: Team fielding trade offers (RotoWire) Jets general manager Joe Douglas said Wednesday he will "answer the call" when trade offers come in for Darnold, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Douglas also said that his stance on Darnold "hasn't changed," adding that he has "no doubt" about the young signal-caller eventually achieving his "outstanding potential." The Jets have previously indicated that the team wouldn't be making a move at quarterback until evaluations of April's draft class had been fully completed, so Douglas' admission that the team will listen to trade offers for Darnold represents a significant change in tone. Rich Cimini of ESPN.com relays t... (More)15 hours
37.Tyrell Williams finds a home in Detroit (FFToday) Former Raiders' WR Tyrell Williams reached agreement on a one-year deal worth up to $6.2 million with the Detroit Lions, per source. Analysis: Williams didn't play a snap for the Raiders last season due to a shoulder injury but should have some football left in the tank at just 29 years old. His fantasy value will hinge on if Kenny Golladay and/or Marvin Jones return to the Lions as both are free agents.15 hours
38.Lions | Detroit adding Tyrell Williams (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Tyrell Williams (Raiders) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions Wednesday, March 3, worth as much as $6.2 million, according to a source. Analysis: Williams has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but likely will have a solid role in the Lions passing game. He has the chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues. 15 hours
39.Dolphins | Haason Reddick may be FA target (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent LB Haason Reddick may be a target for the Miami Dolphins if he becomes available in free agency, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. 15 hours

41.Dak Prescott contract talks 'more productive than they have been' (FantasyPros) Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have not come to a contract agreement yet, but contract discussions are "more productive than they have been" in previous months, per an unnamed source of Calvin Watkins at Dallas News. Analysis: The deadline for applying a franchise tag to a player is March 9th. While Prescott was deemed a very likely candidate to receive the franchise tag again, valued at $37.7M this year, this reporter's unnamed source seems to be alluding to a possible longterm deal. If the Cowboys do not tag or extend Prescott by March 17th, he becomes an unr... (More)15 hours
42.Browns | Kyle Rudolph interested in Browns (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Kyle Rudolph (Vikings) is interested in signing with the Cleveland Browns in part because he played under head coach Kevin Stefanski when they were both with the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source. Rudolph plans to play for several more seasons. 16 hours
43.NFL | Delanie Walker plans to play in 2021 (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Delanie Walker (Titans) opted out of the 2020 season but intends to play next season, according to a source. 16 hours

45.Jets | NYJ have talked with Marcus Maye (thehuddle) New York Jets impending free-agent S Marcus Maye's agent has talked with the Jets about a new contract, and general manager Joe Douglas said the talks have been productive. 16 hours
46.Jets | GM willing to take calls on Sam Darnold (thehuddle) New York Jets QB Sam Darnold's future with the team is uncertain because general manager Joe Douglas said the team would listen to trade interest from other teams. Analysis: The Jets have the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, so they may consider trading Darnold and selecting a quarterback. Darnold is still young and could find success with another team. He would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he starts for a team.16 hours
47.Cardinals | J.J. Watt terms (thehuddle) Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals DE J.J. Watt's two-year deal includes a $12 million signing bonus, a $14.5 million base salary in 2021, $13.5 million base salary in 2022 and a maximum of $31 million. He can earn $3 million in incentives for sacks. If he gets 10 sacks in 2021, it's worth $1 million with a $1 million escalator in 2022. Ten sacks in 2022 nets $1 million as well. Analysis: Watt only had five sacks last year, but he still finished 11th in fantasy points at the position. He should have more potential for sacks with his new team and will be a midrange DL1 in IDP leagues. 18 hours
48.J.T. Gray and Saints agree to a 2-year deal (FantasyPros) Juantavius Tavon (J.T.) Gray has signed a new 2-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. Analysis: The two sides agreed on a 2-year contract worth $4M with $2M guaranteed. Gray, a core special teams player, joined the Saints in 2018 as an undrafted free agent and was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2019 as a special teamer. The Saints lock up a valuable contributor at a good price.18 hours
49.Saints | David Onyemata restructures (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints DT David Onyemata restructured his contract Wednesday, March 3, to create $4.34 million in salary cap space. 21 hours
50.Dynasty | David Johnson restructures (Dynasty League Football) Running back David Johnson has restructured his contract to stay with Houston next season. Analysis: Johnson cut his salary from $7.95 million to $4.25 million, though he can add another $1.75 million in incentives. A year ago, the Texans had DeAndre Hopkins, JJ Watt, DeShaun Watson, Will Fuller, and David Johnson as their core players. Going into next season, it's quite possible Johnson will be the last one standing among that group. It's quite unbelievable considering he... (More)1 day
51.Dynasty | Kyle Rudolph released (Dynasty League Football) The Minnesota Vikings have released veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph. Analysis: Rudolph has been phased out of the offense in favor of Irv Smith and was only able to post 28 catches for 334 yards and one touchdown last season. The ten-year veteran will certainly find work as a solid red zone option moving forward, but it's clearly looking like his best days are behind him. The big news here is really for Irv Smith, as he'll be right on the edge of TE1 status next season. Rudolph belongs on the waiver wire at this point.1 day
52.Cowboys | Optimism building in Dak Prescott contract talks (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is reportedly engaging in contract talks with the team that are 'more productive than they have been' in previous months, according to a source via Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News.1 day
53.Falcons | Calvin Ridley gets downfield (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley has recorded a league-high 89 catches on throws that traveled at least 10 yards in the air since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: Ridley is an exquisite route-runner, which helps to explain how he is so proficient in the intermediate passing game. Julio Jones figures to remain the alpha receiver in the Atlanta offense for at least another year or two, but 2020 removed any doubt that Ridley is more than ready to slide into that role. Ridley averaged 88 yards receiving in the seven full games Jones missed last year, but he only scored two of his nine touchdowns ... (More)1 day
54.Cardinals | Arizona home to two 100-sack artists (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (101) and DE/LB Chandler Jones (100) rank first and tied for second in the league in sacks since the start of the 2012 season, according to Pro Football Focus.1 day
55.Kyle Rudolph: Vikings releasing veteran tight end after 10 seasons (FantasyPros) Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is being released from the team, as reported by Ian Rapoport. Analysis: Rudolph has spent his entire ten-year career with the Vikings, racking up nearly 4,500 yards and 48 career touchdowns, including a few clutch catches in the postseason. The veteran tight end will surely have suitors as he hits the crowded free-agent market in 2021. Meanwhile, fantasy managers should target Irv Smith Jr., as he becomes the clear-cut TE1 in a Minnesota offense that heavily utilizes the tight end in its passing schemes. Smith Jr. could quick... (More)1 day
56.Kyle Rudolph: Let go by Vikings (RotoWire) The Vikings have released Rudolph (foot). Analysis: Rudolph logged 28 catches (on 37 targets) for 334 yards and a TD in 12 games for the Vikings last season. The 31-year-old finished the season on IR with a foot injury, but once it's established that he's past the issue, look for the 2011 second-rounder to catch on with another team looking for an experienced tight end option.1 day
57.NFL | Kyle Rudolph could bring sure hands (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Kyle Rudolph (Vikings) leads the NFL with a drop rate of just one percent on catchable passes since 2017, according to Pro Football Focus Tuesday, March 2. Analysis: Rudolph is sure to have a market, especially with a jump on free agency. He could be a top red-zone option in the right offense and will be a quality low-end TE1 option in 2021 fantasy drafts.1 day
58.Packers | Unknown if Devin Funchess will play in 2021 (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess hasn't shared his intentions for the 2021 season with the team after opting out of the 2020 campaign, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett Tuesday, March 2. He remains under contract. Analysis: The Packers may not have as much of a need for Funchess after the emergence of WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling in 2020. WR Allen Lazard projects as the starter opposite Davante Adams. Funchess can be dropped in all dynasty leagues.1 day
59.Dynasty | Steelers have no feature back (Dynasty League Football) Following a woeful run-game performance in 2020, the Steelers are expected to look for a feature back in the 2021 NFL Draft Analysis: As the linked article points out, the Steelers were well short of league-wide rushing attack averages and there's no belief non-free-agent backs Benny Snell, Trey Edmunds, Jaylen Samuels or Anthony McFarland are anything other than complementary pieces while James Conner, as is well known, is a free agent who will not be returning in 2021. As for Conner, the 25-year-old continues to show both flashes and lac... (More)1 day
60.Dynasty | T.Y. Hilton tops most underrated FA (Dynasty League Football) Free agent wide receiver T.Y. Hilton topped the list of "11 most underrated offensive free agents in 2021" in a recent USA Today article. Analysis: He shares the list with tight end Gerald Everett (3), Nelson Agholor (7), Dak Prescott (9), A.J. Green (10) and Chris Carson (11). The list is just one writer's opinion but stands to reason given the relatively large number of impact-potential free agents soon to be hitting the market. As for Hilton, DLF's WR61, he's now 31 and would seemingly possess upside in the right o... (More)1 day
61.Dynasty | Sammy Watkins may not return (Dynasty League Football) Chiefs GM Brett Veach indicated it would be more "challenging" to bring receiver Sammy Watkins back for 2021. Analysis: The full quote was "I love Sammy and love what he does for our offense. It will be a lot more challenging to retain him and bring him back this year just because of where we are. We were able to work with him and his agent last year and make it work. This year will probably be even more difficult just because we'll have some work to do to get under the cap, and once we do, we have to see where the markets ... (More)1 day
62.Dynasty | Myles Gaskin to see competition (Dynasty League Football) The Dolphins are expected to look for a featured back this off-season. Analysis: Myles Gaskin has been productive when healthy but has played in only 17 games over the past two seasons, gaining 717 yards and scoring four touchdowns on the ground while averaging 4.0 ypc. He did manage 41 receptions in 2020, scoring another two touchdowns. The undersized (5'10/194) runner has had difficult remaining healthy and the Dolphins are expected to seek a true carry-the-load player via the draft or in free-agency, Aaron Jones and Leonard Fournette po...

63.Jets | Henry Anderson financial update (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, releasing DL Henry Anderson Tuesday, March 2, will save the New York Jets $8.2 million in cap space for the 2021 season.1 day
64.Bears | Franchise tag an option for Allen Robinson (thehuddle) Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson is a candidate to receive the franchise tag for the 2021 season, according to general manager Ryan Pace Tuesday, March 2. 'No firm decision on that yet, but we know we have it at our disposal. ... We want to keep our good players and Allen is a good player for us,' Pace said. Analysis: Robinson was the team leader in targets, receptions and receiving yards in 2020, and his six touchdowns ranked second among pass-catchers. WR Darnell Mooney would be the next-best in-house option if the Bears do part with Robinson. Robinson is a top WR2 regardless of where he plays in 2021, but his volume in Chicago ha... (More)1 day
65.Saints are shopping DL Malcom Brown, per Rapoport (FantasyPros) Ian Rapaport of NFL Network is reporting that the New Orleans Saints are shopping defensive lineman Malcolm Brown. If the Saints are unable to find a trading partner, the veteran lineman will likely be released. Analysis: The Saints are rumored to have had multiple teams interested in the veteran defensive lineman. If they are unable to find a trading partner it is rumored that Brown will be released. Brown is currently in the final year of his three-year, $15 million dollar contract. If the Saints release the defensive lineman it will save them $5 million dollars against the cap in 2021.1 day
66.Jets | Henry Anderson dismissed (thehuddle) New York Jets DL Henry Anderson was released Tuesday, March 2.1 day
67.Aaron Jones an option for franchise tag, per Packers GM (FantasyPros) Packers GM Brian Gutekunst says the franchise tag is a possibility for RB Aaron Jones. Analysis: "It's very much case by case," Gutekunst said. He also added that he typically prefers to avoid using the franchise tag. The tag checks in at around $8 million for running backs this season, which isn't much for one year. Jones has also been connected to the Dolphins, who are known to be looking for a new feature back this offseason. Stay tuned.1 day
68.Packers | Aaron Jones could get franchise tag (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will receive the franchise tag for the 2021 season, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst, if it's what's best for the team. Gutekunst says there are 'usually better ways to avoid it.' Analysis: It's tough to envision a better fantasy situation for Jones in 2021 or beyond. He's a clear RB1 with the Packers but could slip into the RB2 tier in a less efficient offense.1 day
69.David Johnson: Agrees to reduce salary (RotoWire) Johnson has agreed to restructure his contract, which now will have $4.25 million guaranteed out of a potential $6 million in 2021 compensation, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Prior to the new arrangement, Johnson was scheduled for a $7.95 million base salary, including $2.1 million guaranteed. The first number goes down and the second up, with player and team reaching an agreement to keep Johnson in Houston for the final year of his lucrative contract. Now that that's settled, the Texans can figure out the rest of their roster, starting with the tumultuous Deshaun Watson situation. Johnson's team context will go from bad t... (More)1 day

73.David Johnson and Texans agree to terms on new, more affordable deal (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport is reporting that David Johnson has agreed to restructure his contract to a one-year deal worth up to $6M, with $4.25M fully guaranteed. Analysis: Johnson was originally slated to receive almost $8M this year through the deal that the Texans inherited from the Cardinals. Now 29 years old, Johnson is no longer in his prime as an NFL running back. Still, the veteran looked great in 2020 and had a stretch towards the end of the season that won many fantasy championships. With Duke Johnson out of town, More)1 day
74.Vikings | Kyle Rudolph released (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph was released Tuesday, March 2. Analysis: The clear winner here is TE Irv Smith who will step straight into the No. 1 role in 2021 with little competition at the tight end position. Smith caught 30 passes for 365 yards and five touchdowns while starting just seven games in 2020 and should grow into a mid-tier TE1 as the No. 3 or 4 option in the Vikings' passing attack.1 day
75.Kenny Golladay expected to be franchise tagged, per Rapoport (FantasyPros) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects the Lions to franchise tag WR Kenny Golladay. Analysis: This isn't the first time that Rapoport has mentioned this. Detroit is likely entering a rebuild but they also don't want to lose Golladay for nothing. Even if they tag him the team could look to make a trade. He would likely be more of a fantasy WR2 if he stays with the Lions. This is due to Jared Goff replacing Matthew Stafford at quarterback.1 day
76.Kyle Van Noy: On track to be released (RotoWire) The Dolphins plan to release Van Noy, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Van Noy signed a four-year, $51 million contract with the Dolphins last March, but his tenure with the team will last just one season. The linebacker logged 69 tackles, six sacks, six defended passes, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 14 games in 2020, but he'll be on the move once again. Per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, letting Van Noy go will create $9.7 million in salary cap savings (and as much at $12.5M if he's deemed a post June 1 cut) for Miami.1 day
77.Dolphins release LB Kyle Van Noy, per Mike Garafolo (FantasyPros) Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that the Miami Dolphins are releasing LB Kyle Van Noy, one year into his four-year, $51 million dollar contract. Analysis: After a disappointing first year in Miami, in which Van Noy recorded only 69 tackles and six sacks, the team informed the veteran linebacker that he will be released. The move comes at a bit of a shock as the veteran was coming into the second year of a four-year, $51 million dollar contract. His release will save the Dolphins $10 million dollars in cap space.1 day
78.Texans | David Johnson restructures contract (thehuddle) Houston Texans RB David Johnson restructured his deal Tuesday, March 2, and will receive $4.25 million guaranteed out of a maximum contract value of $6 million. His cash total is lower now, but Johnson's previous guaranteed money was $2.1 million. Analysis: Johnson enters the final year of his contract and had been scheduled to carry the sixth-highest cap figure among running backs prior to the renegotiation. He will return for a second year in Houston with what will be a revamped line, although the outlook will be much different if QB Deshaun Watson gets his way with a trade request. Johnson will now be without backfield make Duk... (More)1 day

80.James Conner 'unlikely' to be re-signed per Steelers' beat reporter (FantasyPros) Per Steelers' ESPN beat reporter Brooke Pryor, Pittsburgh is "unlikely" to re-sign RB James Conner and will likely be in the market for a running back come draft day. Analysis: The Steelers will head into the 2021 season with Benny Snell Jr., Anthony McFarland Jr., and Jaylen Samuels in the running back room. None of these guys have shown an ability to consistently handle a full workload in Conner's absence, so it's likely the Steelers look to add a running back during the Draft. It remains to be seen what the future holds for Conner, but it's unlikely that future l... (More)1 day
81.Jadeveon Clowney: Should be healthy next month (RotoWire) Clowney (knee) should be medically cleared at some point in April, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Recovering from December meniscus surgery, the 28-year-old edge rusher is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agency for a second straight offseason. And, much like last year, he'll be rehabbing from winter surgery while he goes through the process. Clowney ultimately settled for a one-year, $13 million contract from Tennessee last year, signing in September and playing eight games before the meniscus injury ended his season. He finished with only 19 tackles, six QB hits and no sacks, so he might consider another one-yea... (More)1 day

86.Myles Gaskin: ESPN beat reporter expects Miami to bring in a feature back (FantasyPros) Cameron Wolfe of ESPN writes "it would be a shock" if the Dolphins didn't acquire a new feature back this offseason. Analysis: Miami has already been linked to Aaron Jones in free agency, but Wolfe adds that the organization could draft a top-tier RB such as Najee Harris or Javonte Williams. Myles Gaskin finished the 2020 season as Miami's top running back, but it's looking as if he'll be more of a depth piece in 2021.1 day
87.Alex Smith could be an option for Bears, per Rapoport (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that former Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith reportedly could be an option for Bears in 2021. Analysis: When Smith quarterbacked the Washington Football Team in 2020, he led the team to a 5-1 record while throwing for 1582 yards and six touchdowns. With Mitch Trubisky's impending free agency on the horizon for the Bears, the veteran QB makes a lot of sense. Smith's style of play fits well for the Bears in their read and react, RPO style offense.1 day
88.Steelers | James Conner likely to walk (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB James Conner is not likely to be re-signed in the offseason. Analysis: The good: Conner has rushed for 4.3 yards per carry in 532 rushes in his career. He also has 22 rushing touchdowns over the last three years. However, he has not completed a full season in his career. He had 55 catches three years ago, but he really hasn't been able to repeat it through the air. He's RB2 material wherever he lands, but he'll be better to have in non-PPR leagues. 1 day

93.Josh McCown released by the Texans (FantasyPros) The Texans released QB Josh McCown on Monday. Analysis: McCown signed with the Texans in November, but didn't record a single snap for Houston in 2020. The 42-year-old could opt to retire and land a coaching gig in the near future. McCown hasn't stated a game in the NFL since 2018. The transaction leaves Deshaun Watson and AJ McCarron as the only two QBs on the Texans active roster.2 days
94.Greg Ward tendered by Eagles as exclusive rights free agent (FantasyPros) The Eagles tendered WR Greg Ward as an exclusive rights free agent on Monday. Analysis: Ward was tendered and can only negotiate with the Eagles this offseason. He hauled in 53 receptions on 79 targets for 419 yards and six touchdowns across 16 games in 2020. The 25-year-old was the only Eagles wideout to start all 16 contests last season. Ward is currently the Eagles WR2, but could drop to third on the WR depth chart if new HC Nick Sirianni adds some pass-catching options during the offseason.2 days
95.Boston Scott tendered by Eagles as exclusive rights free agent (FantasyPros) The Eagles tendered RB Boston Scott as an exclusive rights free agent on Monday. Analysis: Scott was tendered and can only negotiate with the Eagles this offseason. He started four games for Miles Sanders in 2020 and turned in solid, but unspectacular lines. Scott logged 80 carries for 374 rushing yards along with 25 receptions on 36 targets for 212 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The 25-year-old is currently the backup to to starting RB Miles Sanders, but could see his role reduced in 2021 if the Eagles new HC Nick Sirianni adds some competition to the backfiel...

96.Dynasty | Steelers in the market for a running back (Dynasty League Football) Steelerswire is listing seven different running backs the Steelers could be interested in and that list includes Aaron Jones, Kenyan Drake, Marlon Mack, James White, Leonard Fournette, Chris Carson and Mike Davis. Analysis: Jones is clearly the premier back on the list, but the other names could be intriguing. It seems clear the Steelers are going to move on from free agent James Conner and this report looks like they could be casting a wide net for his replacement. While Jones and Chris Carson seem to be the only true three down options on tha... (More)2 days
97.Dynasty | Alex Smith to be released (Dynasty League Football) The Washington Football Team will release quarterback Alex Smith. Analysis: Smith had some harsh words for the franchise over the weekend, claiming he felt he was never wanted last year and was only given playing time out of necessity. It's no surprise Smith will seek to play elsewhere as Washington needs to start over at the position and Smith was going to be a distraction after his recent comments. The Comeback Player of the Year still seemingly wants to continue playing and most signs point to him possibly reuniting with his former Utah ... (More)2 days
98.Buster Skrine: Let go by Bears (RotoWire) Skrine (concussion) has been released by the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Skrine was entering the final year of his contract with Chicago, but they have ultimately opted to go in a different direction. He recorded 112 tackles (89 solo) and three passes defensed during his two-year stint with the team. Besides the Bears, the 31-year-old has spent time with the Browns and Jets during his time in the league. He will now look for a new opportunity.2 days

100.Patriots | Cam Newton a handful inside the 20 (thehuddle) New England Patriots QB Cam Newton scored 12 rushing touchdowns inside the red zone in 2020 - the most in the league by a quarterback - according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: There was much made about the fact Newton threw for eight touchdowns versus 10 interceptions in 2020, but his ability to serve as his own goal-line back occasionally made him a somewhat serviceable fantasy QB2 down the stretch even after he cooled following a strong start. It seems reasonable to believe New England will draft someone within the first three rounds to compete with him this season if he returns to the Patriots, but he looks like the best bet ...
