1.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 minute
2.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)13 minutes
3.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...

4.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)22 minutes
5.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 2021.2 hours
6.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.3 hours
7.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)3 hours

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.4 hours
10.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. 6 hours
11.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)11 hours
12.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)11 hours
13.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)11 hours
14.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)12 hours
15.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)15 hours
16.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)15 hours
17.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...

18.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)18 hours

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)18 hours

Analysis: Borders appeared in six games (five starts) with the Titans in 2020 before suffering a season-ending hip injury December.

21.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.19 hours

26.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.20 hours
27.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. Concussions plagued Humphries in 2020 but he should find a team in free agency willing to take a chance on his 2018 potential, barring any further injury setbacks.20 hours
28.Will Fuller V not part of franchise tag plans for Texans, per beat writer (FantasyPros) The Houston Texans do not plan on placing the franchise tag on impending free agent wide receiver Will Fuller V, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Analysis: Wilson stated in his article that the Texans would like to re-sign Fuller but that he's expected to leave via free agency.

29.Dynasty | Russell Wilson considering destinations (Dynasty League Football) Russell Wilson has reportedly approached the Seahawks about a trade and has listed the Saints, Jets, Raiders, and Dolphins as potential destinations. Analysis: This situation seems to be getting worse by the day. After Wilson took some shots at the franchise for failing to protect him over the years, it seems he's ratcheting things up now as he's reportedly given the Seahawks potential trade destinations. While a trade is far from a done deal, things are going to need to change in Seattle quickly in order for their franchise quarterba... (More)20 hours
30.Will Fuller: Not likely to be franchise-tagged (RotoWire) The Texans don't plan to give Fuller a franchise tag, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. 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.20 hours

Analysis: Akers took complete control over the Rams' backfield starting in Week 13 vs. the Cardinals and never looked back. He averaged 21.5 carries and 2.8 targets per game while playing over 60% of the snaps in his last four regular season games. Even with Darrell Henderson in the picture, expect Akers to continue to be the focal point of the Rams' rushing attack. He's an intriguing option as a low-end RB1 in 2021, especially...

34.Deshaun Watson: Dug in on trade request (RotoWire) Watson met with David Culley last Friday and told the Texans' new coach he has no intention of playing for the team, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports. 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. In the unlikely event of neither side budging, the Texans will be able to fine Watson for every practice and game he misses, as the young QB is under contract through 2025 after signing a four-year extension in Sep...

35.Deshaun Watson remains steadfast in trade demand (FantasyPros) Per sources, Texans QB Deshaun Watson met with new head coach David Culley last Friday and reiterated his desire to be traded. Watson remains adamant that he won't play for the Texans again. Analysis: The back and forth between Watson and the Texans continues. It's clear the two parties are at a standstill and neither is willing to give in on the trade demand.

Analysis: Hilton will be a free agent this offseason, but there is a good chance that he re-signs with the Colts. He had a solid second half of the season and likely will be a regular contributor no matter where he plays in 2021. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues. 21 hours
37.Russell Wilson: Willing to waive no-trade clause (RotoWire) Wilson told the Seahawks he wants to stay in Seattle, but he also said he'd be willing to play for the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears if a trade were considered, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Wilson has surpassed Deshaun Watson and Carson Wentz as king of the February rumor mill, with multiple reports suggesting the 32-year-old QB is contemplating an NFL future after Seattle. According to The Athletic, Wilson is frustrated with coach Pete Carroll's emphasis on the running game and wishes the Seahawks had made their pass-blocking more of a priority. He may not be ready to request a trade, but there's no doubt he's making... (More)21 hours
38.Colts | Marlon Mack continues rehab (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) is rehabbing his injured Achilles tendon at the team's facility. Analysis: Mack probably will have to find another team since the Colts have Jonathan Taylor and may not be able to find a starting job.

He appeared in just three games before suffering a season-ending biceps injury. He made 14 tackles, including two on the quarterback and one for loss, before being shut down for the year.

42.Russell Wilson would accept trade to Cowboys, Saints, Raiders, Bears (FantasyPros) The Russell Wilson drama continues in Seattle. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that while the Seahawks' franchise quarterback has not formally requested a trade and would like to stay in Seattle, he would accept trades to the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders, and Bears. Analysis: It's a fascinating development after all seemed to be well in Seattle for quite some time. Now, while it appears Wilson hopes to mend his relationship with the Seahawks, the fact that he would waive his no-trade clause for four destinations (including three with quarterbacks set to hit the open marke...

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

45.Texans | No tag for Will Fuller (thehuddle) Houston Texans impending free-agent WR Will Fuller will not receive the franchise tag this offseason, according to sources.

He can be a No. 2 fantasy back if he receives most of the work. 1 day
47.Jurrell Casey: Released by Denver (RotoWire) The Broncos released Casey (biceps) on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. 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)1 day
48.Texans | Deshaun Watson still wants trade (thehuddle) Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson met with head coach David Culley last week and indicated that he has not changed his mind about being traded, according to sources.

49.Boston Scott: Likely staying in Philadelphia (RotoWire) Scott will be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, meaning he can only negotiate with the Eagles, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: There was talk of Scott being a restricted free agent, but that would've required three accrued seasons in the NFL, rather than the two he's been credited with. 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...

Wilson told the Seahawks he wants to remain with the team, but if a trade were to be considered, the only teams he would consider are the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders or New Orleans Saints, according to Rodgers. Analysis: One thing is clear with the continuing Wilson reports this offseason: He and the Seahawks' coaches and brass certainly have patching up to do. He's been a top-11 fantasy QB in all nine of his seasons with the Seahawks, and despite the eye-grabbing January and February headlines, ... (More)1 day
51.Deshaun Watson's demands for a trade being refused by Texans (FantasyPros) Diana Russini with ESPN is reporting that the Texans are avoiding trade talks regarding Deshaun Watson, refusing to trade their franchise quarterback. 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. With multiple teams clearing cap space and expressing interest in Watson, the Texans appear set to call his bluff. 2021 would be played under his fifth-year rookie extension where he's set to make approximately $15.9M. After that, his four-year/$156M extension kicks in. As of now, both side... (More)1 day

Analysis: The disgruntled Wilson rumors persist in the Pacific Northwest, and if anything, they seem to be growing louder. And even even though Wilson's fantasy finishes in recent seasons have fallen noticeably short of his strong starts, he's still finished as a top-six fantasy QB in five of his last seven seasons.

55.J.J. Watt has several offers, including one for at least $15M per year (FantasyPros) As the J.J. Watt sweepstakes continue, a new nugget of information has been dropped. Dianna Russini of ESPN reports that Watt has several offers on the table, including one that would pay him between $15 million and $16 million per year. 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)1 day
56.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. The Steelers can't use their franchise tag on him with their cap situation. Analysis: Smith-Schuster hasn't been the same receiver since Antonio Brown left, but he has been a decent one. He'll be a WR2 target in fantasy. 1 day
57.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)1 day
58.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)1 day
59.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.

60.Bears | Roquan Smith the total package (thehuddle) Chicago Bears LB Roquan Smith's 139 tackles in 2020 ranked sixth in the NFL, and among players who ranked in the top 10 in tackles, he was tied for first with 18 tackles for loss and ranked second in passes defensed, sacks and interceptions.1 day
61.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.

62.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. Analysis: Henry had a career-high 60 catches in 2020 as he topped 600 yards for the second consecutive season. If Henry does return, his second season with Justin Herbert should result in TE1 production.1 day
63.Eddie Vanderdoes: Cut by Houston (RotoWire) The Texans released Vanderdoes (undisclosed) with a non-football injury designation Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: Vanderdoes, who opted out of the 2020 season due to concerns related to COVID-19, will now need to get healthy and search for a new landing spot.

64.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 2021.1 day
65.49ers | 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.1 day
66.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 2021.1 day
67.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.1 day
68.Marcell Harris: Serves as reliable backup (RotoWire) Harris appeared in all 16 games with the 49ers this season, finishing with 37 tackles (27 solo), three pass defenses and two forced fumbles. 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)1 day
69.Alex Collins: Back with 'Hawks (RotoWire) The Seahawks re-signed Collins on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: Collins appeared in three regular-season games with Seattle last season, recording 18 carries for 77 yards (4.3 YPC) and two scores. He also spent time on the team's practice squad. Now back in Seattle, Collins stands to compete for a depth role in a backfield that could lose both Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde to free agency.1 day
70.Tyrell Williams: Officially released (RotoWire) The Raiders released Williams (shoulder) on Wednesday. Analysis: Reports of Williams' pending release initially surfaced back in January, so it doesn't come as any sort of surprise to see the move now made official. Williams, who missed all of 2020 due to a labrum injury, was just two seasons into the four-year, $44 million deal he inked with the Raiders back in 2019. Per Tashan Reed of The Athletic, his release will save Las Vegas $11.6 million in cap space for 2021, and $23.1 million over the next two years. Now 29 years old, Williams -- when healthy -- stands to draw interest on the free agent market from teams in need of veteran ... (More)1 day
71.Tyrell Williams released by Raiders (FantasyPros) Tyrell Williams was officially released today by the Las Vegas Raiders, freeing up over $10 million in cap room. Analysis: Williams was a solid wide receiver for the Raiders in the 2019 season. After being sidelined for the entire 2020 season dealing with a torn labrum, it'll be interesting to see where Williams lands as a free agent.1 day
72.Dynasty | Ben Roethlisberger to return (Dynasty League Football) The Steelers announced quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will return next season. Analysis: Roethlisberger will return as the starter in Pittsburgh for his 18th season that will also likely be his last. While Big Ben showed some major signs of decline last year, he's still a major upgrade over what the Steelers have behind him. Pittsburgh will need to work hard to restructure his contract in an effort to free up money to possibly bring back JuJu Smith-Schuster and figure out a way to fix their offensive line and running game to help him out. R... (More)1 day
73.Dynasty | Aaron Jones to Miami gaining steam (Dynasty League Football) The Dolphins and Aaron Jones reportedly have mutual interest as free agency looms. Analysis: The report claims Jones will receive interest from the Dolphins, 49ers, Steelers, Jets and Bears. The sentiment is the Pro Bowl running back has Miami on his short list of teams he'd seriously consider signing with. The Packers could still use the franchise tag on him, but have AJ Dillon waiting in the wings and would likely bring back Jamaal Williams to create a new (and cheaper) post-Jones committee as well. Jones is reportedly going to command m... (More)1 day
74.Jimmy Garoppolo: Still wanted in San Francisco? (RotoWire) San Francisco general manager John Lynch said Wednesday in his appearance on "The Eye Test for Two" podcast that he has no doubt Garoppolo (ankle) will be the team's Week 1 starter in 2021. Analysis: Lynch did stipulate "if he's injury-free" when he was asked about his commitment to Garoppolo, who missed 13 games in 2018 and 10 in 2020. There's been talk of the team pursuing Deshaun Watson, but it isn't clear the Texans will comply with their star quarterback's trade request, and even if they do, San Francisco can't match the draft-pick capital the Dolphins and Jets have to offer. Garoppolo has two years remaining on his five-year, $... (More)1 day
75.L.J. Collier: Gets minor ankle surgery (RotoWire) Collier revealed in his appearance Wednesday on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" that he underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery earlier in the week. Analysis: Collier didn't miss any games in 2020, making 16 starts in the regular season and one more in the playoffs. His total of three sacks in 27 career games is disappointing for a first-round pick, but he at least gave the Seahawks competent snaps at multiple defensive-line positions in his second pro season. Collier didn't sound too worried about the ankle scope, and he should be healthy before training camp.1 day
76.Aaron Jones, Dolphins have mutual interest (FantasyPros) Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald is reporting that there's mutual interest between free agent RB Aaron Jones and the Dolphins. Analysis: Jones is the top free agent running back on the market and the Dolphins are reportedly interested. Miami has $26 million in cap space and could make a significant bid to sign Jones. The 26-year-old RB reportedly could make up to $15 million per season. "Miami and the Jets are the two teams most likely to sign him, from what I've heard," said Ian Wharton of the Sportsbook Review. The Bears, 49ers and Steelers are also reportedly "h... (More)1 day

80.Raiders | Tyrell Williams officially released (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams was released Wednesday, Feb. 24. Analysis: Williams didn't play last season due to injury so there's no production to be redistributed.

82.Buccaneers | Tom Brady to be sidelined for a few months (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) probably will not be able to participate in any practice drills until June because of his offseason knee surgery, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Analysis: Brady likely will not do much this offseason but should be ready for training camp. He is coming off a terrific 2020 season and should have most of his pass catchers back next season. He can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper fantasy leagues. 2 days
83.49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo expected to be starter in 2021 (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be the starting quarterback for the 49ers next season as long as he is healthy, according to general manager John Lynch. Analysis: Garoppolo was limited to six games this season because of injuries but has thrown 34 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if anything changes, but Garoppolo can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for the 49ers. 2 days
84.Jason Pierre-Paul: Getting another surgery (RotoWire) Pierre-Paul said Wednesday that he will undergo a procedure on his knee, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Analysis: The 32-year-old pass rusher played at least 78 percent of defensive snaps in each of the Bucs' 20 games this past season, despite battling a knee injury that limited his practice reps throughout the year. Pierre-Paul claims he was at only 70 percent strength, and he notes that the upcoming surgery should help him get back to 100 percent before the 2021 campaign begins. He has one season remaining on a two-year, $25 million contract, with $5 million of his $12.5 million salary guaranteed for 2021, per OverTheC... (More)2 days

Analysis: Henry posted a career-high 2,027 yards this season and has recorded at least 12 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons.

Analysis: Rooney met with Roethlisberger on Tuesday and released a statement about the franchise quarterback Wednesday.

91.Buccaneers | Tom Brady could see extension (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady could receive a contract extension in the offseason, according to general manager Jason Licht.

92.Steelers | Owner confirms Big Ben returning (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger will return in 2021, according to team president Art Rooney II. Analysis: Roethlisberger was 14th in fantasy points at the position last season in 15 games. The big question will be - how will they supplement around him? JuJu Smith-Schuster is a free agent, and the tight end and running back positions need addressed. He also lost his longtime center to retirement. Big Ben is a mediocre QB2 target in drafts. 2 days
93.Dolphins | Miami, Aaron Jones have mutual interest (thehuddle) Impending free-agent RB Aaron Jones (Packers) reportedly has the Miami Dolphins listed among the teams he is willing to consider in free agency, and a league source confirms the team is also interested in signing Jones, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Analysis: Miami is expected to enter free agency with about $26 million in cap space and could create another $36 million in cap space by restructuring a few contracts of their free-agent additions from last year and parting with a few other veterans such as receivers Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns. Jones would likely take a hit in efficiency if he signs with the Dolphi... (More)2 days
