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.1 hour
2.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. 3 hours
3.Dynasty | David Johnson restructures his contract (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)7 hours
4.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.7 hours
5.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.13 hours
6.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)14 hours
7.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.14 hours
8.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...

9.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.16 hours
10.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.16 hours
11.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.17 hours
12.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)17 hours
13.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)17 hours
14.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)17 hours
15.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...

16.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.17 hours
17.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)18 hours
18.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 2021.18 hours
19.Jets | Henry Anderson dismissed (thehuddle) New York Jets DL Henry Anderson was released Tuesday, March 2.18 hours
20.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.18 hours
21.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.19 hours
22.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)19 hours
23.Vikings | Kyle Rudolph's financial savings (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, releasing TE Kyle Rudolph Tuesday, March 2, will save the Minnesota Vikings a little over $5 million in cap space for 2021.19 hours
24.Bears | Jaylon Johnson, Khalil Mack avoid surgery (thehuddle) Chicago Bears CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and DE Khalil Mack (shoulder) won't need offseason surgery, according to general manager Ryan Pace Tuesday, March 2.19 hours
25.Bengals | Ricardo Allen visits Cincinnati (thehuddle) Free-agent S Ricardo Allen (Falcons) visited with the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, March 2, according to a source.19 hours
26.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)19 hours
27.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.19 hours
28.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.20 hours
29.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.20 hours
30.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.21 hours
31.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)21 hours
32.Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will reportedly be fully healthy in April (FantasyPros) Jadeveon Clowney is expected to fully cleared in his recovery from his torn meniscus surgery in April. Analysis: This recovery time could delay Clowney from signing with a team in free agency for a couple of weeks while he returns to full health.22 hours
33.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)22 hours
34.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)22 hours
35.Bears | Chicago to pursue Alex Smith? (thehuddle) Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith, who is expected to be released at some point before the start of free agency, may potentially receive some interest from the Chicago Bears, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.23 hours
36.Jaguars | Hunter Henry in Jacksonville's sights? (thehuddle) Impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry (Chargers) is a player the Jacksonville Jaguars should 'be aggressive in pursuing' this offseason, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.23 hours
37.Dolphins | Miami to move on from Kyle Van Noy (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy was informed Tuesday, March 2, that he will be released in the coming days, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.1 day
38.Dolphins | Kyle Van Noy not long for Miami? (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy is a potential cap casualty who could be released before the beginning of the league year, according to a source via ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.1 day
39.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
40.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
41.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
42.Titans | Jadeveon Clowney update (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans impending free-agent LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will be fully cleared from knee surgery in April, according to a source. He's close to being ready now, but it could delay his signing with a new team for a few weeks. 1 day
43.Saints | Noah Spence back to Saints (thehuddle) Free-agent DE Noah Spence re-signed with the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, March 2, on an undisclosed deal. 1 day
44.Ravens | Two BAL defenders likely gone (thehuddle) Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent DE Matt Judon and DE Yannick Ngakoue are unlikely to re-sign with the team in the offseason. 1 day
45.Ravens | BAL unlikely to sign top WR (thehuddle) Free-agent WRs Allen Robinson (Bears) and Kenny Golladay (Lions) are unlikely to be on the Baltimore Ravens' radar. However, they could sign one or two of the second-tier receivers. 1 day
46.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.1 day
47.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.1 day
48.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... (More)1 day
49.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)1 day
50.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)1 day
51.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.1 day
52.Bears | Buster Skrine set free (thehuddle) Chicago Bears CB Buster Skrine was released Monday, March 1.1 day
53.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 ... (More)1 day
54.Vikings | Dalvin Cook a red zone monster in 2020 (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook ran for 13 of his 16 rushing touchdowns inside the red zone in 2020 - tied for the second-highest total in the league - according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: Cook finally put together the kind of high-volume season fantasy owners have been hoping for since he arrived as a second-round pick in 2017. The Vikings are hoping a smooth transition from father (Gary Kubiak) to son (Klint) at offensive coordinator can lead to another such season, but caution is warranted. Fantasy owners can't expect Klint to be the same great play-caller Gary Kubiak was in his first shot as an NFL offensive coordinator,... (More)1 day
55.Saints | Alvin Kamara got it done in the red zone (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara scored a league-high 16 rushing touchdowns inside the red zone in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: Kamara is more than just a great receiving option out of the backfield and this is more proof of that. The 25-year-old has yet to log 200 carries in any of his four seasons but has somehow managed to post at least 14 rushing scores in two of those years. If we forgive Kamara for his injury-plagued 2019 campaign, he has produced at least 13 total TDs in every other season.1 day
56.Josh McCown: Released by Houston (RotoWire) The Texans released McCown on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: McCown didn't ultimately suit up for a single game with the Texans in 2020, after having linked with the team mid-season. The veteran signal-caller, who will turn 42 this offseason, may be motivated to turn his attention toward coaching instead of playing. Houston now only has AJ McCarron on the depth chart behind Deshaun Watson, who recently reiterated his request to be traded.1 day
57.Dynasty | Rashod Bateman runs sub-4.40 (Dynasty League Football) According to a "source" Minnesota rookie receiver Rashod Bateman ran a hand-timed 4.37 and laser-timed 4.39 at the Exos combine. Analysis: If the 6'2/210 lbs. receiver can match this performance during Minnesota's Pro-Day on April 1st, he'll assure himself a spot in the NFL first-round and set the Twittersphere on fire. Bateman profiles as a dynamic prospect for the next level though won't pressure 2021's top receivers Ja'Marr Chase or Devonta Smith in overall NFL Draft selection but does appear to set to...

58.Dynasty | Teddy Bridgewater seeing interest (Dynasty League Football) Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has reportedly received interest from San Francisco. Analysis: It's obvious Carolina is looking for an upgrade and will move Bridgewater if they can garner an acceptable offer. Reports also surfaced that the Lions were interested prior to their acquisition of Jared Goff from the Rams. Still only 28 and coming off a lackluster 2020 campaign, Bridgewater may still possess upside in the right system but apparently Carolina believes it's time to move on from the 2023 free agent. Bridgewater's $2... (More)1 day
59.Cardinals | Arizona want two players back (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent LB Haason Reddick and CB Patrick Peterson are players the Cardinals are interested in re-signing this offseason. 1 day

63.Raiders | Vegas removes three from roster (thehuddle) Las Vegas Raiders DE Jeremiah Valoaga and LB Ukeme Eligwe were waived Monday, March 1. The team also released CB D.J. Killings. 1 day
64.Cardinals | Two FAs may not return (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent LB Haason Reddick and CB Patrick Peterson appear less likely to re-sign with the Cardinals after the team signed DE J.J. Watt. 1 day
65.J.J. Watt: Chooses Arizona (RotoWire) Watt announced via his official Twitter account Monday that he is signing with the Cardinals. Analysis: Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Watt is signing a two-year deal worth $31 million, and with $23 million guaranteed. The 31-year-old defensive end had been linked to numerous teams around the league while a free agent, including the Packers, Bills, Titans and Browns, but he'll instead rejoin former Houston teammate DeAndre Hopkins in the desert. Watt will get an immediate chance to compete in the NFC West with the Cardinals, and lining up opposite Chandler Jones (biceps) will no doubt provide him ample opportunities to cause havoc ... (More)1 day
66.J.J. Watt reportedly signing two-year contract with Arizona Cardinals (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cardinals are signing DL J.J. Watt to a two-year, $31 million contract. Analysis: The deal includes $23 million guaranteed. Watt confirmed the deal himself by posting a picture on his Twitter of him in a Cardinals shirt. Watt will form a fearsome defensive line in Arizona, lining up opposite of Chandler Jones. He'll also be reunited with his former Houston teammate, DeAndre Hopkins.1 day
67.Greg Ward: Gets ERFA tender (RotoWire) The Eagles tendered Ward as an exclusive rights free agent Monday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Ward can thus only negotiate with the Eagles this offseason, which makes it seem very likely that he'll stay in Philadelphia. The 25-year-old was the only wideout to start all 16 games for the team in 2020, and he finished with the best statline of his career (53-419-6). Philadelphia has already parted ways with DeSean Jackson and are expected to release Alshon Jeffrey in the near future, making it conceivable that Ward sees similar opportunities in 2021. Of course, there's always the possibility of the Eagles add... (More)1 day
68.Texans | Three RFAs expected to return (thehuddle) Houston Texans restricted free-agent TB Pharaoh Brown, DT P.J. Hall and S A.J. Moore are expected to return to the team next season. 1 day
69.Patrick Mahomes (toe) undergoes surgery, should be ready for camp (FantasyPros) Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes underwent surgery to address a nagging toe injury on Feb. 10. Analysis: General manager Brett Veach expects Mahomes to be ready for training camp, and he could even be good to go by the time mandatory minicamp comes around. This is unsurprising news, but it certainly delivers a sigh of relief for Chiefs fans. Mahomes, a perennial Pro Bowler and MVP candidate, led Kansas City to their second straight Super Bowl appearance this year. In 15 starts, he completed 390 passes for 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. H... (More)1 day
70.Ravens | Lamar Jackson has not started talks with BAL (thehuddle) Contrary to a previous report, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has not started contract extension talks with the Ravens at this point, according to a source. Analysis: Jackson is still under contract for a few more years, so the two sides do not need to reach an agreement this offseason. Jackson is one of the better fantasy quarterbacks available and should be a weekly starting option in 2021. 1 day
71.Browns | Olivier Vernon not expected back (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns impending free-agent DE Olivier Vernon is not expected to re-sign with the Browns this offseason. 1 day
72.Patrick Mahomes: On track for camp (RotoWire) Mahomes (toe) should need about three months to recover from Feb. 10 surgery to repair a torn plantar plate in his left foot, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Mahomes should be healthy before training camp, and Chiefs GM Brett Veach even suggested the QB could be ready for mandatory minicamp, which usually takes place the first or second week of June. It isn't even clear that Mahomes will miss any time on the practice field this spring/summer, as NFL teams likely will need to adjust their offseason programs on account of the coronavirus pandemic. In any case, Mahomes doesn't really need the practice reps, especially whe... (More)1 day
73.49ers | San Francisco checks on Teddy Bridgewater (thehuddle) Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater has received trade interest from the San Francisco 49ers this offseason. Analysis: The 49ers have said Jimmy Garoppolo will be the starter next season but could consider adding Bridgewater as the backup that can push Garoppolo. Bridgewater can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he starts for a team.1 day
74.Alex Smith and Washington expected to part ways (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the Washington Football Team is expected to part ways with QB Alex Smith. Analysis: Smith has two years remaining in his four-year, $94 million contract and is expected to be released by Washington. The AP Comeback Player of the Year is a free agent for the time ever and at 36 years old still wants play in the NFL. He threw for 1,582 yards and a 6:8 TD:INT ratio across eight games for Washington in 2020. Smith will look to latch onto another team during the offseason if he continues his NFL career.1 day
75.Football Team | Reuben Foster unlikely a priority (thehuddle) Washington Football Team impending free-agent LB Reuben Foster is not expected to be a priority for the team this offseason. There is a chance he could return if he is willing to accept a minimum value contract, in the opinion of NBC Washington's JP Finlay. 1 day
76.Alex Smith: Likely done in Washington (RotoWire) The Washington Football Team is expected to "part ways" with Smith (calf) in the coming days, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Smith presumably will be released, as he isn't likely to have any trade value with two seasons remaining on a four-year, $94 million extension. Any trade would require the 36-year-old QB to take a pay cut, and even then he'd probably be looking at a backup job or a slim shot to win a starting role. Smith recently expressed confidence in his ability to continue playing in the NFL, but he might consider retirement if he's released by Washington and can't find another opportunity to his liking.1 day
77.Cardinals | Arizona adding J.J. Watt (thehuddle) Free-agent DE J.J. Watt (Texans) agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, March 1, worth $31 million, according to a source. The deal includes $23 million in guaranteed money. 2 days
78.Eagles | Three Eagles ERFAs tendered (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles LB Alex Singleton, WR Greg Ward Jr. and RB Boston Scott were tendered as exclusive-rights free agents Monday, March 1. As such, they can only negotiate with the Eagles. 2 days
79.Washington expected to cut Alex Smith (FFToday) The Washington Football Team is expected to part ways with QB Alex Smith in the coming days, sources tell me and @KimJonesSports. The AP Comeback Player of the Year has said he still wants to play, and at age 36 may have a chance to do so. Analysis: Smith made a remarkable recovery from his gruesome leg injury in 2018 and managed to see the field for eight games in 2020. His release saves Washington $14.7 million in cap space and makes them one of many teams looking for a starting quarterback in 2021.2 days
80.Football Team | Alex Smith moving on (thehuddle) Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith will part ways with the team in the coming days. Analysis: Smith has expressed a desire to continue playing, but he has no value in fantasy. 2 days
81.Vikings | Kirk Cousins is durable (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has missed just one of his last 96 games due to injury. Analysis: Cousins was 11th in fantasy points at the position last year. Honestly, for the unheralded nature of his 35-touchdown season, that might come as a surprise to some. Cousins is a solid fantasy quarterback, but he keeps getting pushed down the pecking order as these more dynamic athletes become more polished.2 days
82.Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes update (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) is expected to be ready for training camp and could be ready for mandatory mini camp, according to general manager Brett Veach. The surgery had a three-month recovery. Analysis: Mahomes is arguably the best quarterback in fantasy, but the gap has narrowed with the amount of dual-threat options. 2 days
83.Seahawks | Russell Wilson stormed out of meeting (thehuddle) Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson stormed out of a meeting before a Thursday night game against the Arizona Cardinals because he felt his ideas on how to fix the offense were being rebuffed, according to a report by The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks. Wilson has attempted to add his influence to the offense and has felt shut out by coaches at times. Analysis: Wilson is a midrange QB1 if he stays in Seattle, but he could have upside if he were dealt to a more potent offense.2 days
84.Saints | Russell Wilson linked to Saints? (thehuddle) Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton hit it off at the Pro Bowl three years ago, according to MMQB's Peter King. The Saints are on Wilson's list of desired destinations if he's traded. Analysis: Wilson would be dynamite in the Saints' offense if it comes to fruition. This is another scenario to watch for QB1s in fantasy this offseason. 2 days
85.Dynasty | Josh Gordon signs with Fan Controlled League (Dynasty League Football) Josh Gordon has signed on with the Zappers of the Fan Controlled Football League. Analysis: It's a sad end to a once promising career for Gordon, who has endured numerous suspensions for violating the league's substance abuse policy and will likely be suspended permanently from the NFL. Gordon was once a dynasty darling, but he was never able to replicate his success on or off the field after his rookie season. Flash clearly belongs on waiver wires and eliminated from watch lists. It would be shocking if this wasn't the last news... (More)2 days
86.Dynasty | LeSean McCoy wants to keep playing (Dynasty League Football) Free agent running back LeSean McCoy has indicated he'd like to play at least one more season. Analysis: Shady will go down as one of the best dynasty running backs of all-time. Unfortunately, he's lost the explosiveness and power he once had, making him a depth player at this point in his career. This past season, McCoy was only able to post ten carries and fifteen catches for Tampa Bay, while failing to find the end zone all year. McCoy may find work on the open market, but his days of fantasy relevance are all but over. You can move... (More)2 days
87.Saints | Alvin Kamara picks up chunks in passing game (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara has tallied 58 catches of at least 15 yards since entering the league in 2017 - the most by any running back over that span - according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: Kamara is the proud owner of 326 catches since becoming a Saint, so he's had a lot of opportunities to create big plays. With that said, the four-time Pro Bowler deserves plenty of credit for this stat as he has forced a league-high 79 missed tackles on those receptions. The likely retirement of Drew Brees figures to drop Kamara from the elite group of fantasy running backs, but it shouldn't keep him from serving as a solid RB1 opt... (More)2 days
88.Cam Newton continues to receive praise from Bill Belichick (FantasyPros) Ben Volin of the Boston Globe writes Patriots coach Bill Belichick "has done nothing but rave" about Cam Newton this offseason. Analysis: Newton signed with New England late last offseason and had to learn a new offense on the fly. Additionally, he tested positive for COVID early on and didn't have much offensive talent around him. Even though it was a frustrating season at times it's understandable why Belichick would have so much respect for the former MVP. Now a free agent, it was initially believed that the Patriots would seek an upgrade over Newton this spring.... (More)2 days
89.Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes proficient on deep passes (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has recorded a league-best 102 completions on throws of at least 20 yards downfield since the start of the 2018 season, according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: It should come as no surprise that the leader of the NFL's most explosive passing offense - paired with perhaps the league's most dynamic deep-ball threat in Tyreek Hill - would find himself atop the leaderboard in such a category. Most of the band is expected back - with the possible exception of Sammy Watkins - for Kansas City in 2021, so Mahomes should be primed for another run at overall QB1 honors in fantasy and plenty of long co... (More)2 days
90.Dynasty | Drew Brees may not retire (Dynasty League Football) Workout footage of Drew Brees is fueling speculation the long-time Saints quarterback may not retire this off-season. Analysis: Brees has restructured his contract and all signs have been pointing towards him retiring. However, the days have stretched into weeks and this workout footage clearly doesn't look like the work of someone who is planning on spending the Fall on his couch. While all of this could change on any day, those holding out hope for at least one more season from Brees could get exactly that. Brees is our QB33 and while he&... (More)2 days
91.Seahawks | Chris Carson still improving (thehuddle) Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent RB Chris Carson averaged a career-high 4.8 yards per carry and a career-best 3.1 receptions per game in 2020. Analysis: Carson missed time with an injury, but he resumed his role as Seattle's workhorse back down the stretch while expanding his involvement in the passing game. If the Seahawks bring him back in 2021, RB2 production seems like a given.2 days
92.Eagles | Dallas Goedert slowed in final weeks (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert averaged 3.7 receptions and 40.0 receiving yards and didn't score a touchdown in three games with QB Jalen Hurts as the starter. Analysis: On the plus side, Goedert did have 17 targets in those same three games, so Hurts wasn't ignoring him. If Zach Ertz trade rumors turn out to be true, Goedert will have enough more than enough upside to target as a potential TE1.2 days
93.Patriots | James White's numbers plummeted (thehuddle) New England Patriots impending free-agent RB James White's 375 receiving yards in 2020 were the fewest since his rookie season when he appeared in three games, and his 49 receptions and 62 targets were his lowest totals since 2014. Analysis: White has been a steady presence in the New England passing attack throughout his career, but he was largely an afterthought in the Cam Newton-led offense. His days as a PPR asset could be numbered, and at the very least, fantasy owners need to see where White is playing and who is throwing him the football before drafting him in 2021.2 days
94.Rams | Cooper Kupp tough to bring down (thehuddle) Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp led all receivers with 21 avoided tackles after receptions in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. Analysis: Kupp finished just shy of 1,000 yards last year, but he topped 90 catches for the second season in a row. His touchdown total dipped from 10 to three, but the addition of quarterback Matthew Stafford should raise Kupp's ceiling. Consider him a WR2 with upside.2 days
95.Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald still dependable (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Larry Fitzgerald's 54 receptions in 2020 were the most by a player without a drop.2 days
96.Marcus Maye expected to receive franchise tag (FantasyPros) Multiple people in NFL circles expect the Jets to place the franchise tag on safety Marcus Maye. Analysis: While wide receivers have dominated franchise tag rumors so far, we now have a defensive player in the mix. Maye, who turns 28 in two weeks, amassed two sacks, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles over 16 starts in 2020. He also made a career-high 88 tackles while defending 11 passes. Clearly, New York and defensive-minded head coach Robert Saleh are excited about the prospect of keeping Maye in tow.2 days
97.Dynasty | Cam Akers a special player (Dynasty League Football) In a recent interview, Rams head coach Sean McVay said running back Cam Akers is an "every-down back" and "a special player." Analysis: Quickly becoming one of the more enigmatic coaches in the NFL, at least in fantasy, McVay seemed to be suggesting Akers will be featured in 2021 far more than he was as a rookie. His full quote about his upside back was "...Cam hit his stride at the right moments. You could see he's always had a real and authentic confidence, but then as he's getting more and more comfortable ... (More)2 days
98.Dynasty | Justin Fields mocked to Pittsburgh (Dynasty League Football) In Charley Casserly's first 2021 mock draft, talented Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields falls to Pittsburgh with the 24th-overall selection. Analysis: It's an Aaron Rodgers-esque fall from a player popularly mocked in the top five overall selections of the upcoming draft. BYU's Zach Wilson is now the popular selection behind Trevor Lawrence while North Dakota State's Trey Lance continues to rise. A fall to 24th overall seems unlikely given the league-wide need at the position and any drop for Fields would likely be met wi... (More)2 days
99.Dynasty | Najee Harris a top-ten selection? (Dynasty League Football) NFL Network's Charley Casserly released his 2021 mock draft and Najee Harris appears in the top-ten Analysis: His mock draft includes a number of surprises but none more so than Harris being selected eighth overall by the Falcons. That said, it stands to reason as the team has a notable hole at the position and certainly doesn't appear interested in bringing back Todd Gurley. In the running back heavy 2020 draft class, only Clyde Edwards-Helaire heard his name called in the first round, with the Chiefs selecting the talented runner a... (More)2 days
100.Bengals | No tag likely for Carl Lawson (thehuddle) Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent DE Carl Lawson likely will not receive the franchise tag this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Ben Baby. 2 days
