1.Josh Gordon: Participating in new football league (RotoWire) Gordon will participate in the Fan Controlled League in the offseason, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The Fan Controlled League season ends in late March, so Gordon shouldn't have an issue playing for a NFL team should he be reinstated from his indefinite suspension due to violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Gordon is set to be an unrestricted free agent March 17 and has not played in the NFL since 2019.1 hour
2.Justin Strnad: Gearing up for offseason program (RotoWire) Strnad (wrist) will be ready to participate when Broncos team workouts open up this spring, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Analysis: The Broncos acquired Strnad in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, intrigued by the pass-defending skill set he showcased during his career at Wake Forest. After dislocating the lunate bone and suffering multiple torn ligaments in his wrist during an August practice, Strnad did not ultimately field a single snap during his rookie campaign. Strnad's rehabilitation process incorporated upper body exercises several weeks ago, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 News. Now, it's confirmed the ... (More)2 hours
3.Texans | Financial implications of potential Deshaun Watson holdout (thehuddle) Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson would lose a total of $20.213 million if he holds out for the entirety of the 2021 NFL season, including fines for skipping offseason programs, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk Saturday, Feb. 27.3 hours
4.NFL | Josh Gordon joins Fan Controlled Football league (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Josh Gordon (Seahawks) will play for the Zappers of the Fan Controlled Football league, according to team owner Bob Menery Saturday, Feb. 27.3 hours
5.Titans | Ryan Tannehill: Play-action master (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill trails only Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (96.0) with a 94.0 Pro Football Focus grade on play-action passes since 2019. Analysis: It always helps to share the backfield with perhaps the league's top backs in Derrick Henry, and Tannehill has taken full advantage, finishing as fantasy's seventh-best QB in 2020 after a strong finish to 2019. He's a strong low-end QB1 draft target if you decide to bypass the top guns.5 hours
6.Rashard Higgins: Contract situation in flux (RotoWire) The Browns have not offered Higgins a contract extension, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Analysis: It's a bit surprising to hear the Browns' front office hasn't offered Higgins any type of deal considering the 26-year-old appears eager to re-up for his sixth season with the franchise. After settling for a one-year contract last offseason near the league minimum, the 2016 fifth-round pick put together a career year after the season-ending injury to Odell Beckham (knee) despite playing just 13 games. Higgins will surely be in line for a pay raise this go around, but in a year where the salary cap took a dramatic... (More)5 hours
7.Saints | Drew Brees not done yet? (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is featured in a recent video posted on Instragram by fitness trainer Todd Durkin in which Brees is pushing a weighted sled. At one point in the video, the phrase 'something must be brewing' is posted. Analysis: Perhaps Brees has been inspired by seeing fellow 40-something QB Tom Brady winning another Super Bowl. Brees did recently renegotiated his contract to free up salary cap space, but that likely would've needed to be done in any case with the reduced 2021 cap, and the IQ video hints that Brees' retirement may not be a sure thing after all. Stay tuned ...6 hours
8.Rashard Higgins wants to re-sign with Browns but hasn't received offer yet (FantasyPros) Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins, an impending free agent, wants to return to Cleveland next season but hasn't been offered a new contract yet. Analysis: Higgins impressed this past season in the absence of Odell Beckham Jr., making him one of the most intriguing under-the-radar pass-catchers set to hit free agency. Nevertheless, a standstill continues to ensue on the negotiating front. "I haven't seen an offer yet," Higgins said. This is somewhat surprising as he would provide outstanding depth to a Browns receiving corps that has shown flashes of excitement if... (More)6 hours
9.Dont'a Hightower among Patriots' key opt-outs returning in 2021 (FantasyPros) After opting out of the 2020 season last summer, several key Patriots opt-outs are set to return. Linebacker Dont'a Hightower, safety Patrick Chung, and tackle Marcus Cannon are among the New England players planning to opt back in for 2021. Analysis: The Patriots struggled in their first year without Tom Brady. Still, the defense impressed and could return to elite status with players like Hightower and Chung returning. Meanwhile, the offensive line took a step forward with the emergence of rookie Michael Onwenu, but Cannon's return adds even more firepower in the ... (More)6 hours
10.Browns | David Njoku saying goodbye? (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is a candidate to be released or traded this offseason as heads into the non-guaranteed fifth option year of his rookie contract, and Saturday, Feb. 27, he tweeted what sounds like a goodbye to Browns fans. 'Whatever happens I appreciate all the love from all my loyal fans,' Njoku wrote. 'I've kept quiet for a while but I wanted to express that at least for now. I love u guys.' Analysis: Njoku caught only 19 passes for 213 yards in 13 regular-season games a year after missing all but four games with a wrist injury in 2019, and it sure seems like he will be playing elsewhere with the salary cap dippin... (More)7 hours
11.Bears | Jimmy Graham a cut candidate (thehuddle) Chicago Bears TE Jimmy Graham is a prime candidate to be cut this offseason with such a move saving the Bears $7 million in cap space. Analysis: Graham, who will turn 35 this year, is still a red-zone force with seven of his eight TD grabs coming inside the opposition's 20-yard line as he finished 13th in total fantasy points among tight ends. Graham, however, finished 19th at the position with 456 receiving yards and has become a TD-dependent TE2 who likely will be playing for his fifth team in the last eight seasons in 2021.7 hours
12.Colts | Nyheim Hines targeted a ton (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines was third among running backs in the league with 77 targets in 2020. Analysis: Hines was 18th at the position in PPR leagues, and he could stand to improve on those numbers with Carson Wentz under center. Hines will be an undervalued RB2 in PPR leagues. 8 hours
13.Dynasty | Julian Edelman may not play in 2021 (Dynasty League Football) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman may not be ready to play in 2021 as he rehabs his ailing knee. Analysis: Not good. Edelman was only able to play six games last season before a knee injury derailed his year. His recovery has been slow and while he still wants to play, his rehab just may not reportedly get him there in time for the upcoming season. The Patriots only owe him $2.8 million on the year, so he's relatively safe from being cut. Still, Edelman is 34 years old and the Patriots are clearly rebuilding. Even if he gets himself int...

14.Dynasty | Drew Lock unlikely to be moved (Dynasty League Football) According to Ian Rapoport, Denver quarterback Drew Lock is unlikely to be traded. Analysis: The team reportedly has received interest in Lock but Rapoport says "the Broncos haven’t come close to trading him and I honestly doubt that they will.” He did provide a caveat in that should Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson become available, the team would likely have interest. Wilson and Watson are clear franchise quarterbacks and would garner significant interest on the open market from many teams. As for Lock, DLF's QB25, 2021 lo... (More)20 hours
15.Dynasty | Javian Hawkins seeing interest (Dynasty League Football) Louisville rookie running back Javian Hawkins has spoken virtually to multiple teams, most recently the Rams, Cardinals, Packers and Bills. Analysis: The undersized (5'9/196) runner has been lauded for his toughness, skill set and pass protection with two years under his belt at Louisville, finishing 2020 with a 6.2 ypc. average in the Covid-shortened season. While he wasn't a prolific producer in the passing game, producing only five receptions over his past two seasons, much of that can be attributed to the Louisville offense and wh... (More)21 hours
16.Buccaneers | Strong finish for Antonio Brown (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Antonio Brown ranked seventh in receptions and was tied for second with four receiving touchdowns over the final four weeks of 2020. Analysis: Brown's numbers were partly inflated by his big performance in Week 17, but his chemistry with Tom Brady was undeniable. Brown's future is unclear, but if he returns to Tampa Bay and Chris Godwin signs elsewhere, Brown would quickly become a valuable fantasy asset.22 hours
17.Dynasty | Duke Johnson cut by Houston (Dynasty League Football) The Texans have released running back Duke Johnson. Analysis: Johnson is a dynasty league legend in the fact so many have wanted to see him get a full workload and have a backfield to himself because of his productivity in short spurts. Unfortunately, that just never happened in Cleveland or Houston. Johnson will look to latch on with a new team as a third down back. He has value in PPR leagues because of his receiving ability, but it's hard to see our RB60 ever be a true difference maker. Johnson is a hold right now until we see where he ... (More)22 hours
18.Dynasty | Broncos have interest in Ryan Fitzpatrick (Dynasty League Football) The Broncos have reportedly expressed interest in free agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Analysis: The 38-year old Fitzpatrick has made a career out of replacing underwhelming starting quarterbacks and is now in search of a new home for ninth time after stops with the Rams, Bengals, Bills, Titans, Texans, Jets, Bucs and Dolphins. The Broncos would be wise to grab Fitzpatrick if they fail to land a bigger name at the position. While Denver will likely give Drew Lock one more season to prove himself, the addition of Fitzpatrick would give them t... (More)1 day
19.Browns | No offer for Rashard Higgins yet (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Rashard Higgins said he would like to return to the Browns, but the team has not made a contract offer at this point. The Browns are interested in re-signing Higgins but only at a certain price, according to a source. Analysis: Higgins posted a career-high 599 yards this season and will receive some interest if he hits the free-agent market. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season depending on his situation.1 day
20.Texans | David Johnson may return (thehuddle) Houston Texans RB David Johnson could return to the team next season if he is willing to restructure his contract, according to sources. Johnson is currently scheduled to count $8.512 million against the salary cap in 2021, and the team would save $6.9 million if they cut him at this point. Analysis: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if the two sides can reach an agreement. He did post over 1,000 total yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games this past season and should see a majority of the work if he remains with the Texans. He can be considered at least a flex option in fantasy leagues. 1 day
21.Deshaun Watson: Willing to sit out games (RotoWire) Watson is willing to sit out the preseason and even miss regular-season games if the Texans don't agree to trade him, independent NFL journalist Dov Kleiman reports. Analysis: Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reported Thursday that Watson has already informed new Texans coach David Culley that he has no intention of playing for the team again, so announcing a willingness to skip games is simply the star signal-caller doubling down on his position. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Houston still isn't taking trade inquiries for Watson, making it notable the team could fine the 25-year-old over $3 million if he skips events such the offsea...

22.Julian Edelman (knee) unsure if he'll be healthy for 2021 (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is unsure if he'll be healthy for the 2021 season. Analysis: Edelman wants to play in 2021, but is "still trying to see if he's healthy enough to be out there for the 2021 season," said Rapoport. He's still rehabbing and recovering from a knee injury that limited him to just six games in 2020. "No decision has been made yet about whether his knee injury will allow him to play in 2021," Rapoport added. Edelman hauled in 21 receptions on 39 targets for 315 yards and no touchdowns across... (More)1 day
23.Broncos | Tim Patrick may receive interest (thehuddle) Denver Broncos restricted free-agent WR Tim Patrick likely will receive interest from other teams if the Broncos do not offer him the first-round or second-round tender this offseason. Analysis: Patrick led the team with six receiving touchdowns and finished with 742 yards. He likely will return to the Broncos but should have a solid role no matter where he plays in 2021. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues. 1 day
24.Julian Edelman: Wants to play, health permitting (RotoWire) Edelman (knee) wants to continue his career but is 'still trying to see if he is healthy enough to be out there for the 2021 season,' Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Rapoport said that Edelman is progressing in his rehab process and wants to play in 2021, but that 'no decision has been made yet' about whether or not his knee injury will allow him to suit up. Edelman only played six games in 2020 before landing on IR, and though he was designated for return mid-December, he never progressed enough in his recovery to make his way back to the active roster. The Patriots also have a potential out from Edelman's contract th... (More)1 day
25.David Johnson: Texans want to retain veteran RB (FantasyPros) Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports the Texans would like to retain RB David Johnson, if possible. Analysis: Johnson has a cap hit of $8.512 million and it sounds like Houston wants to lower that number. The Texans already released Duke Johnson earlier today in order to save $5 million in cap space for 2021. David Johnson would seemingly be in line for a big workload if he remains in Houston, but there's still a lot of the offseason left for things to change.1 day
26.David Johnson: Still wanted by Houston (RotoWire) The Texans hope to retain Johnson for 2021, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: Johnson put together a fairly solid inaugural campaign in Houston, with 1,005 scrimmage yards and eight total touchdowns, but he was also limited to 12 appearances due to injuries. The 29-year-old carries an $8.8 million cap hit for 2021, per Spotrac.com, a figure which Wilson notes the Texans want to bring down. Johnson only carries a $2.1 million dead cap figure, so if he's unwilling to agree on a restructured contract the team could cut him without much penalty, as happened to former backfield mate Duke Johnson on Friday. Agreeing ... (More)1 day
27.Patrick Chung: Plans to stay in New England (RotoWire) Chung is planning to return to the Patriots in 2021 after opting out of the 2020 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: At age 33, Chung should be more physically refreshed than his age would indicate after an extended time off from the rigors of the NFL. The veteran will aim to once again lead the team's safety corps. In his 2019 season, Chung posted 51 tackles and three pass breakups across his 13 contests.1 day
28.Duke Johnson: Let go by Houston (RotoWire) The Texans cut Johnson (neck) on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Houston traded a third-round pick for Johnson back in 2019, but he won't be part of the organization's plans going forward. Johnson is coming off the worst season of his career, with just 235 rushing yards and one score on 77 carries (3.1 YPC) across 11 games. He also caught 28 of 34 targets for 249 yards (8.9 yards per catch) and a touchdown. The move saves the Texans roughly $5 million in cap space and leaves Johnson -- whose yards per carry and catch last season were his lowest marks since 2015 -- free to search for a new landing spot. It's also wort... (More)1 day
29.Duke Johnson Jr. has been released by the Houston Texans (FantasyPros) Adam Schefter is reporting that the Texans have released veteran running back Duke Johnson Jr. Analysis: Johnson spent two years in Houston, playing backup to Carlos Hyde in 2019 and backup to David Johnson in 2020. His career 4.4 yards per attempt took a sizeable hit this season when he was named the starter for five weeks. During that five-week stretch, Johnson saw 43 carries which he managed to turn into just 140 rushing yards with no touchdowns. Known primarily as a scatback, the 5'9" veteran has alw... (More)1 day
30.Dolphins | Brian Hoyer may be option for Miami (thehuddle) New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer may be a possible option for the Miami Dolphins this offseason because he has worked with co-offensive coordinator George Godsey in the past, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. 1 day
31.Nate Solder intends to play in '21 after opting out last season (FantasyPros) New York Giants tackle Nate Solder intends to play in 2021 "as long as the situation is right," he told sources at ESPN last week. He opted out last season as both he and his son have battled cancer in the past and he was considered a high-risk with COVID-19. Analysis: Solder is 32-year-old and is scheduled to make $10 million in 2021 while costing $16.5 million against the salary cap this season. The Giants now have a decision to make if they are going to move forward with Solder. They drafted T Andrew Thomas from Georgia with the No. 4 overall pick in last year's draft. Thomas struggled early on but improved throughout the se... (More)1 day
32.Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick unlikely to return (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is not expected to re-sign with the Dolphins because he believes he can at least compete for a starting job with a team next season, according to sources. Analysis: Fitzpatrick has played well at times over the last few season and may have a chance for a starting job since several teams have uncertain quarterback situations. He would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he is able to find a job.1 day
33.Patriots | Julian Edelman uncertain about future (thehuddle) New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman would like to play next season but does not know if he will be healthy enough to play, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He is recovering from a knee injury he suffered during the season. Analysis: Edelman was limited to six games in 2020 and finished with 315 yards. Fantasy players can monitor the situation this offseason, but Edelman probably will not be as much of a factor in the passing game as he was in previous seasons. He will be a risky fantasy option if he plays in 2021.1 day
34.Texans release Duke Johnson (FFToday) Texans just released RB Duke Johnson, per source. Analysis: Back in 2019, the Texans gave the Browns a 2020 third-round pick for Duke who ended up playing two seasons in Houston. He played 11 games last season averaging just 3.1 yards per carry. At 27, he likely land in a similar situation as a pass-catching back in a committee. The Browns turned that third-round pick into LB Jacob Phillips.1 day
35.Dont'a Hightower: Intends to play in 2021 (RotoWire) Hightower intends to play for the Patriots in 2021, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Hightower was one of eight Patriots to opt out of the 2020 season due to concerns related to COVID-19, but it looks as though he wants to return for the team in 2021. Whether New England will reciprocate those feelings is a bit more unclear, given that $9.95 million of Hightower's $12.45 million cap hit for next season would be cleared if he's traded or released. Safety Patrick Chung and offensive lineman Marcus Cannon both also announced that they'll return in 2021.1 day
36.Broncos | Denver talking to Ryan Fitzpatrick (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, an unrestricted free agent this offseason, still believes he can bed a successful starter and has spoken recently with the Denver Broncos, according to a report. Analysis: If the Broncos don't swing a blockbuster deal for a Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson, they likely will bring in a veteran QB to compete with Drew Lock. Fitzpatrick, who will turn 39 in November, certainly fills that bill, and the Broncos likely would become the latest team where Fitzmagic is the most effective option in young/old QB rotation but still has to share the starts.1 day
37.Texans | Duke Johnson released (thehuddle) Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson on Friday, Feb. 26, was released by the team. Analysis: 2020 was a struggle for Johnson, who posted career lows in yards from scrimmage (484) and yards per touch (4.6) while scoring only two touchdowns on 105 total touches. At age 28, Johnson likely will catch on somewhere as a No. 2/third-down back, but avoid overrating his fantasy potential.1 day
38.Steelers | PIT confident in Ben Roethlisberger (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger likely will be playing with a restructured contract in 2021, and Steelers president Art Rooney II is confident Roethlisberger can guide the franchise to success. 'We think Ben played at a high level last year,' Rooney recently told the team's website. 'We won our division and set a franchise record for most consecutive wins to open a season, so there was a lot of good stuff. Ben was as disappointed as anybody the way it ended. That last game is just hard to swallow, and I think in part Ben wants to come back and leave on a high note. We're still confident he has the ability to do that. His... (More)1 day
39.Patriots | Three Pats will play (thehuddle) New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower, SS Patrick Chung and OT Marcus Cannon intend to play in 2021 after opting out of 2020. 1 day
40.Devin Bush on schedule in recovery from torn ACL (FantasyPros) Steelers LB Devin Bush is on schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL. Analysis: "I'm feeling stronger week by week, and I'm just trying to get ready physically for next year - especially for camp," he said. Bush tore his ACL back in Week 6 and it proved to be a significant blow to Pittsburgh's defense. The No. 10 overall pick from 2019 should be ready to go for training camp if he can avoid setbacks.1 day
41.Texans | Deshaun Watson resolution not near (thehuddle) Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is still 'off limits' as the Texans are informing interested teams. The Texans don't view free agency or the start of the NFL draft as a deadline for this situation. Analysis: There is some concern that Watson could sit out if he's not traded. That will be a risk fantasy owners must weigh when selecting the top-five QB. 1 day
42.Dynasty | Deshaun Watson and the Texans dig in (Dynasty League Football) Deshaun Watson recently met with new Head Coach David Culley and reiterated his desire to be traded. Analysis: Meanwhile, the Texans are getting voicemails with trade offers and aren't giving any indication they're willing to trade Watson by simply not even returning phone calls. This situation is becoming a very public and ugly game of chess, With Watson under contract, the Texans control his future. However, Watson appears willing to sit out the season if he's not dealt, a situation we haven't seen play out since Carson Pa... (More)1 day
43.Dynasty | No first-round running backs (Dynasty League Football) In Mel Kiper's latest rookie mock draft on ESPN, no running backs appear in the first round Analysis: It's not altogether shocking as the position continues to be faded by NFL front-offices on day one of the draft. The 2020 NFL running back class was arguably the best in decades and if not for a trade-up by Kansas City, eventually selecting LSU's Clyde Edwards-Helaire, all top options at the position would have fallen to day-two. Alabama's Najee Harris and Clemson's Travis Etienne remain the easy top-two at the positio... (More)1 day
44.Dynasty | Rookie skill positions in focus (Dynasty League Football) In Mel Kiper's most recent rookie mock draft on ESPN, eight of the ten first selections are comprised of offensive skill-position players Analysis: Those nitpicking the definition of offensive "skill positions" will argue that Kyle Pitts, tight end, shouldn't be counted as the position is often not considered. But as Pitts has been dubbed a transcendent talent at the position, perhaps as good as Vernon Davis in 2006, the label would seem to apply. The rocked-up Davis famously lit up the NFL Combine, the cherry on top being a... (More)1 day
45.Dynasty | Rookie quarterbacks in focus (Dynasty League Football) In Mel Kiper's latest mock draft on ESPN, five rookie quarterbacks are selected within the first nine selections Analysis: Without further research, this may be a first should it hold true. According to Kiper, Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, Mac Jones and Trey Lance will all be off the board before the Dallas Cowboys are on the clock at pick number ten, Trey Lance selected ninth overall in a trade-up by the Patriots. While there's little doubt all five of thes... (More)1 day
46.Dynasty | Will Fuller won't be franchised (Dynasty League Football) The Texans are reportedly not going to apply the franchise tag to wide receiver Will Fuller. Analysis: The franchise tag would cost the Texans over $16 million in cap space and apparently that's just too much for Houston to swallow in order to keep their oft-injured receiver. Still, if they really wanted to keep Deshaun Watson, losing DeAndre Hopkins, JJ Watt and now Fuller isn't going to do wonders for their mutual relationship. Fuller should command a nice contract on the open market and we know the Packers had at least some level o... (More)1 day
47.Dynasty | Russell Wilson gives Seattle a list (Dynasty League Football) According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Russell Wilson has provided Seattle four teams he'd prefer to be traded to. Analysis: While Wilson hasn't demanded a trade and is reportedly fine staying in Seattle, his agent has given Seattle four amenable destinations if they move him - Chicago, Dallas, New Orleans and Las Vegas. The cap hit the Seahawks would take if they trade him is north of $30 million this season, so any deal is going to be very tough. Wilson is clearly upset about being on a run-first and defensive oriented team and is ... (More)1 day
48.Orlando Brown Jr. exploring trades to play full-time at left tackle (FantasyPros) Baltimore Ravens OT Orlando Brown Jr. and his representatives have begun exploring potential trade possibilities for a full-time role at left tackle, as reported by ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Analysis: Brown played well all season for the Ravens, earning a Pro-Bowl nod after switching from right tackle to left tackle mid-way through the year to fill the void left by an injured Ronnie Stanley. The 24-year old tackle is entering the final year of his rookie contract but is seeking a team that will pay up for his elite talent exclusively at the left tackle position, as Stanley is returning to left tackle on a massive five-year, $98 mil...

49.Isaiah Wilson actively being shopped in potential trade packages (FantasyPros) Tennessee Titans OT Isaiah Wilson is actively being shopped by the organization, as it appears the Titans are seeking potential trade partners for their former 2020 first-round draft pick, as reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Analysis: The rookie tackle was selected 29th overall by the Titans in last year's draft but underwhelmed throughout the 2020 season. Wilson spent time suspended and on the non-football injury list, causing him to miss significant time developing under the tutelage of head coach Mike Vrabel. Continue monitoring this situation in Tennessee, as both Wilson and the Titans seem to be ready to depart ways... (More)1 day
50.T.Y. Hilton: Colts noncommittal on re-signing veteran wide receiver in 2021 (FantasyPros) Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton remains a free agent amidst contract negotiations with the organization's front office, as reported by Stephen Holder on Twitter. Analysis: Colts' head coach Frank Reich went on to say, "I think we're all hoping there's a way T.Y. can end his career as a Colt... But we understand there's a business side to it... I hope the business side can get worked out so he can end his career as a Colt." Hilton has spent his entire career with the Colts and is coming off back-to-back 500+ yard, five touchdown seasons. It took awhile for the vete... (More)1 day
51.Breon Borders: Done in Tennessee (RotoWire) Borders (hip) was cut by the Titans on Thursday. Analysis: Borders appeared in six games (five starts) with the Titans in 2020 before suffering a season-ending hip injury December. In all, Borders notched 27 tackles (22 solo), five pass breakups and one interception. He should draw interest as a depth option on the open market.1 day
52.Chris Milton: Cut by Titans (RotoWire) The Titans cut Milton (knee) on Thursday. Analysis: Milton appeared in 14 games with Tennessee last season before hitting IR due to a knee injury late December. The 28-year-old will look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league.1 day
53.Jullian Taylor: Lands in Tennessee (RotoWire) The Titans signed Taylor (knee) to a contract Thursday. Analysis: Taylor suffered a torn ACL in December of 2019, and he spent the 2020 season on San Francisco's PUP list before being waived. Now over a full year removed from his injury, he could be ready for the tentative start of Tennessee's tentative offseason.1 day
54.NFL | J.J. Watt has received offers (thehuddle) Free-agent DE J.J. Watt (Texans) has received multiple contract offers this offseason, according to sources. The best offer is believed to be $15 million to $16 million per season. 1 day
55.Bears | Ryan Nall receives new deal (thehuddle) Chicago Bears exclusive rights free-agent RB Ryan Nall agreed to terms on a new contract with the Bears Thursday, Feb. 25. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. 2 days
56.49ers | Dontae Johnson may return (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent CB Dontae Johnson is a player the 49ers are expected to try to re-sign this offseason. 2 days
57.Adam Humphries: Cut loose by Titans (RotoWire) The Titans released Humphries on Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries played in 19 regular-season games for Tennessee, catching 60 of 82 targets for 602 yards and four touchdowns. He was a reliable slot receiver before a concussion wiped out the second half of his 2020 campaign, but he never had a chance to live up to the contract while playing in a run-heavy offense that ranked near the bottom of the league in usage of three-wide formations. Humphries will turn 28 in June, so he still has time to revive his career with a new team.2 days
58.Adam Humphries released by the Titans, saving $4.47 million in cap space (FantasyPros) Former Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries is being released, reportedly saving $4.47 million for the organization heading into the 2021 season. Analysis: Humphries caught 23 receptions for 228 yards and two touchdowns across just seven games for the Titans in 2020. He is still a young receiver (27) and flashed his upside back in 2018 when he went for 76/816/5 as a receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Analysis: The window to use the tag started Tuesday and ends March 9. Fuller is Houston's only realistic candidate, but the team may think the $16.54 million tender is an overpay for a guy averaging 5.4 missed games per season. Although he finally stayed healthy in 2020, the 26-year-old wideout missed the final five games after the NFL handed him a six-game PED suspension. He'll be eligible to return for Week 2 in 2021, be it with Houston or a different team.2 days

Analysis: Watson reiterated his trade request, shutting the door on any notion that a new coach might convince him to stick around. No matter, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports the Texans are still avoiding trade conversations and insisting they won't deal their disgruntled QB.

Analysis: Hilton will be a free agent this offseason, but there is a good chance that he re-signs with the Colts.

75.Titans | Adam Humphries released (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries was released Thursday, Feb. 25.

Analysis: Traded from Tennessee to Denver last offseason, Casey recorded 14 tackles in three games before suffering a season-ending biceps tear. He thus finished 2020 without any sacks, ending a seven-year streak with five or more. While he may be past his prime, the 31-year-old Casey should still be able to drum up some interest as an unrestricted free agent. He's immediately eligible to sign with a new team, whereas players on expiring contracts will need to wait for the start of the 2021 league year in mid-March. Given the timing of his biceps injury, ... (More)2 days

A 2018 sixth-round pick, Scott started his career on the Saints' practice squad before the Eagles poached him in December of 2018. He's since played in 29 regular-season games for Philadelphia, taking 141 carries for 618 yards (4.4 YPC) and six touchdowns, with 49 catches for 416 yards (8.5 YPR) and another score. T...

Analysis: Watson has made his desire for a trade very clear and even threatened to sit out the season if his demands weren't met.

Analysis: It remains to be seen which teams have legitimate offers on the table, but the fact that Watt is being offered a deal worth more than his market value shows that there has been no shortage of interest. The 31-year-old was cut loose by Houston earlier this month after he requested his release. Contenders with cap space, suc... (More)2 days
87.Steelers | Difficult for PIT to re-sign JuJu Smith-Schuster (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster could re-sign with the Steelers, but it'll be very difficult with their salary cap situation.

He'll be a WR2 target in fantasy. 2 days
88.Dynasty | Jimmy Garoppolo still the starter (Dynasty League Football) 49ers General Manager John Lynch believes Jimmy Garoppolo will be under center to start 2021 Analysis: Lynch was straight forward and seemed honest when he said "not at all" when asked if there was any doubt Garoppolo would start in 2021. He did throw in "if he's injury-free" when talking about Jimmy G's production, something he's struggled with since joining the team, missing nearly 50% of the team's contests. When under center however, the team is 24-9 in all games, including a Super Bowl appearance so ... (More)2 days
89.Marcus Mariota could be release candidate, per Rapoport (FantasyPros) In an interesting development, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network speculates that the Raiders could release backup quarterback Marcus Mariota rather than trade him. Analysis: This entire idea stems from Mariota's contract, which would pay him $200K for every game he starts and a total of $325K for every game he wins in 2021. Since teams interested in Mariota view him as a starter, any trade would involve more than just his $10.625 million base salary. With teams hesitant to shell out a draft pick and nearly $15 million for the 27-year-old, a release could be more likely. N... (More)2 days
90.Eddie Vanderdoes (undisclosed) released by Texans (FantasyPros) The Texans have released defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes with a non-football injury designation, creating roughly $990,000 in cap space. Analysis: Houston did not disclose the nature of the injury.

92.Jimmy Garoppolo likely to remain with 49ers, per John Lynch (FantasyPros) 49ers GM John Lynch expects Jimmy Garoppolo to remain the team's starting quarterback in 2021. Analysis: Lynch was asked if there was any doubt in his mind that Garoppolo would still be the quarterback next year. "No," he said. "Not at all. I really believe that." However, Lynch added that the organization probably needs to add someone behind him. This makes sense as Garoppolo has dealt with injuries in recent years, but backups C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens haven't been able to get the job done.2 days
93.Chargers | Bolts likely to tag Hunter Henry (thehuddle) Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry is likely to receive the franchise tag, according to Shelley Smith of ESPN.com.

95.Broncos | Tim Patrick extremely sure-handed (thehuddle) Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick was one of two receivers with 70-plus targets and zero drops in the 2020 season, according to Pro Football Focus. The other was Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald. Analysis: Patrick caught 51 of 79 targets for 742 yards and six touchdowns while working with the inconsistent quarterback play of Drew Lock. The former undrafted free agent has been a steady presence for whoever has been under center for the Broncos, but he'll need an upgrade at the QB position to be a serious fantasy consideration in 2021.2 days
96.49ers | Niners to look at backup QBs (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said Wednesday, Feb. 24, the team will look to add a backup quarterback this offseason to insure against potential injury to starter Jimmy Garoppolo. 'Being available is a big part of this thing,' Lynch said. 'So we ... probably as a stated goal ... we have to insulate ourselves better. We got to have better options if he's not there.' Josh Rosen and Josh Johnson are the only other QBs under contract for 2021, along with Garoppolo.2 days
97.Azeez Al-Shaair: 35 tackles as backup (RotoWire) Al-Shaair finished the 2020 season with 35 tackles (22 solo), an interception and a fumble forced across 16 games. Analysis: Al-Shaair spent the majority of the year as a backup and special teams contributor, only topping 58 percent of defensive snaps once in Week 17 when he made a spot start. The third-year pro is a well-rounded linebacker who could reach IDP relevance if given an opportunity to start. That said, Al-Shaair is a restricted free agent who is well-liked by the organization, so returning as a backup to Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw is a strong possibility for 2021.2 days
98.Alex Collins signs with Seattle (FantasyPros) Running back Alex Collins has signed with the Seattle Seahawks. Analysis: Collins will likely be no more than a depth piece in Seattle. Unless you are in a very deep league, he will likely be on the waiver wire.2 days

Analysis: Harris continues to serve as a reliable backup for San Francisco, logging 348 defensive snaps (averaging 349 snaps through three seasons) and filling in for injured starters on occasion. The team has a difficult decision to make regarding unrestricted free agent, Jaquiski Tartt, this offseason, so there is a possibility that Harris could finally elevate to starting strong safety to begin a season. If the 49ers do not re-sign Tartt or sign/draft a replacement, Harris has the physical to... (More)2 days
100.Alex Collins: Back with 'Hawks (RotoWire) The Seahawks re-signed Collins on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
