1.Dynasty | Trevor Lawrence stacks up (Dynasty League Football) Clemson rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence stacks up to some of the best ever scouted by ESPN's Mel Kiper. Analysis: Asked to rank the top quarterbacks he's ever scouted, Kiper lists Lawrence fourth overall behind only John Elway, Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning. It's fantastic company and Lawrence checks all the boxes when scouting him for potential at the next level. While no prospect is ever guaranteed to be successful in the NFL, especially as a rookie, transcendent talent at the position tends to be some of the safest bets i... (More)5 minutes
2.Chargers | Denzel Perryman to test free agency waters (thehuddle) Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman reportedly plans to test out the free-agent market, according to agent Ron Butler. However, he hasn't ruled out a return to the Chargers next season.3 hours
3.Tom Brady: Buccaneers 'getting closer' to restructuring contract for 2021 (FantasyPros) Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is "getting closer" to restructuring his contract with the team for the 2021 season, as reported by Josina Anderson. Analysis: The 43-year old is coming off of his seventh Super Bowl win and has already cemented his legacy but would like to continue playing past the age of 45. With Brady set to turn 44 in August, it appears the Bucs are willing to run it back with their star veteran under center in 2021 and will re-work his contract to perhaps accommodate other focal points in the receiving corps and on the defensive line. With a ful... (More)3 hours
4.Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick leaning towards retirement (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick appears to be leaning retirement, according to 104.3 The Fan's John Clayton.4 hours

6.Dynasty | Odell Beckham likely to stay (Dynasty League Football) Odell Beckham is unlikely to be traded this off-season. Analysis: Speculation and rumor seems to always follow OBJ, but this has always been the most likely scenario. This report also indicates the Browns will be holding on to Jarvis Landry and hope to re-sign Rashard Higgins as well. Beckham hasn't been the player the Browns hoped he'd be when they traded for him and last year was obviously a disappointment as Beckham tore his ACL and missed most of the season. Still, OBJ has undeniable talent and Cleveland's offense took a good... (More)12 hours
7.Dynasty | Kyle Rudolph interested in Browns and Pats (Dynasty League Football) Free agent tight end Kyle Rudolph is reportedly interested in signing with the Browns or Patriots. Analysis: The longtime Viking is searching for a new home after being released by Minnesota earlier this week. The Patriots have shown interest in him before and New England would seem to be a better fit than him signing in Cleveland to play behind Austin Hooper. Regardless, Rudolph's best days of dynasty production are clearly behind him and he remains unranked in our latest dynasty rankings. There's a chance his signing somewhere decre... (More)15 hours
8.Dynasty | Russell Wilson coveted by Chicago (Dynasty League Football) The Chicago Tribune is reporting the Bears are making acquiring quarterback Russell Wilson a priority. Analysis: The Bears are one of four teams Wilson has listed as teams he would accept a trade to, along with New Orleans, Dallas, and the Raiders. The Bears are in dire need at the position and are the only franchise in the NFL who has never had a year with a 4,000 yard passer. Wilson would obviously represent a huge upgrade over Mitchell Trubisky, but it's fair to wonder if the Bears would have enough to actually offer Seattle, especially... (More)16 hours
9.Andre Smith: Staying in Buffalo (RotoWire) Smith signed a two-year contract worth up to $3 million Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Smith was set to be a restricted free agent, but the two sides have agreed to a deal. The 23-year-old linebacker played just 47 defensive snaps over 12 games in 2020, so most of his value comes on special teams. The Bills may have to let Matt Milano go, and Smith could contribute more defensively if that's the case, at least in the short term.18 hours
10.Kyle Rudolph reportedly interested in signing with Patriots (FantasyPros) Following his release by the Vikings last week, Kyle Rudolph is now reportedly interested in joining the New England Patriots. Analysis: Rudolph would be an interesting addition to the New England tight end room.

11.Odell Beckham: Doing well with recovery (RotoWire) Beckham is "right on track" in his recovery from October knee surgery, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Analysis: The Browns haven't provided any sort of timetable when it comes to Beckham's status other than to say he's operating ahead of schedule. Perhaps more importantly, head coach Kevin Stefanski seemed to buck the notion the team could consider trading the star receiver suggesting the Browns are "in a good spot" to keep Beckham for the 2021 season. This follows numerous reports throughout the past few months detailing various ways in which the team could get out of five-year contract Beckham signed back in 2018 ... (More)22 hours
12.Buccaneers | Tom Brady close to reworked deal with Tampa Bay (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is 'getting closer' to a restructured contract with the team, according to a source Saturday, March 6. Brady said he'd 'consider' playing beyond 45 years old. Analysis: Good news for dynasty managers who don't yet need to worry about finding a replacement for the future Hall of Famer. So long as the Buccaneers are able to keep the bulk of their receiving corps intact, Brady will be a mid- to low-tier QB1 for at least one more season.22 hours
13.Russell Wilson: Bears reportedly have 'prioritized' making a run for the QB (FantasyPros) Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Bears have "prioritized" making a run at Seahawks star QB Russell Wilson. Analysis: "The Bears have prioritized making a run at Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson," per Biggs. "His agent included the team on a list of four clubs Wilson would approve a trade to, although it hasn't yet reached the point where he's asked out." The Cowboys, Saints and Raiders were also on the list. Russ... (More)1 day
14.Cameron Jordan: Agrees to restructured contract (RotoWire) Jordan agreed to restructure his contract Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Jordan was originally slated to account for $18.9 million against the cap in 2021, a figure so looming in the Saints' quest to maneuver under the salary cap that some reports suggested the star pass rusher may just be a cap causality, but the worst-case scenario never came to fruition. The 31-year-old took a dramatic fall from the double-digit sack pace he'd put together over the past three seasons, tallying just 7.5 sacks despite playing all 16 games. The veteran defensive end has never missed a game in his 10-year career and is just 5... (More)1 day
15.Demario Davis: Contract restructured (RotoWire) The Saints restructured Davis' contract Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Considering the Saints still need to free up close to $50 million in cap space just to get under the salary cap ahead of the new NFL year, more of these moves will be on the horizon. Entering the second year of a three-year contract signed in September, the veteran linebacker will continue to be a critical part of a defense that solidified itself among the league's best during the 2020 season.1 day
16.Ty Montgomery: Re-signs on one-year deal (RotoWire) Montgomery re-signed with the Saints on a one-year deal Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: It sounds as if the contract is more incentive-laden than anything else, but it does come with a $137,500 bonus. The veteran running back played in six games last season compiling the fewest carries (19) and rushing yards (101) since his rookie year, but almost all that production came in a meaningless Week 17 contest against the Panthers where Montgomery averaged close to six yards-per-carry.1 day
17.Titans | A.J. Brown's production elite (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown has eight games with at least 100 receiving yards and a touchdown since the start of the 2019 season, tying him with Green Bay Packers Davante Adams for the most in the league. Analysis: Brown finished 14th among wideouts last season with 243.5 PPR points but did miss two games, and his average of 17.4 fantasy points per contest ranked seventh. He's a rock-solid low-end WR1 entering 2021.1 day

Analysis: Montgomery re-signs a one-year veteran benefit contract with the Saints on Saturday. The deal includes a $137,500 signing bonus. Montgomery will most likely be third on the Saints RB depth chart behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. The hybrid RB/WR logged 19 carries for 101 rushing yards and hauled in three receptions on six targets for 27 receiving yards across six games for the Saints in 2020.1 day

Analysis: Incognito is fully healthy heading into his 14th season in the NFL and will look to remain in a starting role on a team in need of an offensive guard in 2021. The Raiders had one of the best offensive lines in 2020, with Incognito helping to secure the interior alongside C Rodney Hudson. There are a number of teams that need an upgrade on their offensive line, as many witnessed Super Bowl LV and the devastating results that come from starting inexperienced linemen in the...

Analysis: Harris flashed enough promise during his time in San Francisco, posting 111 tackles, eight pass breakups and five forced fumbles throughout his three seasons with the team.

25.Ross Dwelley: Inks extension (RotoWire) Dwelley signed a one-year extension with San Francisco on Friday. Analysis: After a third and effective season with the team, Dwelley has showed enough talent to stick around in San Fran.

26.Von Miller: No charges filed (RotoWire) Miller (ankle) will have no charges brought against him in regards his investigation by the Parker (Colo.) Police Department, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Broncos general manager George Paton recently announced that he wants to bring Miller back for 2021, per Aric DiLalla of the team's official site, and the veteran linebacker's legal situation now being resolved could smooth out negotiations. Mill... (More)1 day

29.Justin Simmons officially issued franchise tag by Broncos (FantasyPros) In a move that was widely expected, the Broncos have officially placed the franchise tag on safety Justin Simmons. Analysis: This news comes as no surprise and could merely serve as a placeholder in extension talks. As Allbright later added, "the Broncos' intent is to have Simmons playing on a long term deal." The 27-year-old Boston College product has been a force in the defensive backfield for several years, finally earning his first career Pro Bowl selection this past season.

31.Shelby Harris: Offseason priority for GM (RotoWire) General manager George Paton considers Harris (knee) to be "a priority" for the Broncos to re-sign in free agency, Kyle Newman of the Denver Post reports. Analysis: The defensive end's contract was set to expire last March as well, but Denver found a way to retain his services by offering a one-year, $3.3 million deal. Harris, who has compiled 8.5 sacks, 17 QB hits, 16 pass deflections and 12 tackles for loss the past two seasons, would unquestionably command attention on the free-agent market. His 2020 Pro Football Focus performance grade (88.3) could foreseeably convince NFL GMs into pitching him a sizeable multi-year deal. A late-... (More)1 day
32.Justin Simmons: Receiving franchise tag (RotoWire) The Broncos will apply the franchise tag to Simmons on Friday, Benjamin Allbright of KOA Colorado reports. Analysis: Simmons, who was set to become an unrestricted free agent, will receive a franchise tag after having another impressive year with Denver. Tallying 96 tackles (77 solo) and nine pass breakups, the 27-year-old has more than proved to be a reliable safety option for the team. Simmons finds himself in unique territory for the position, becoming the first safety since Donovan Darius (2003-2005) to be tagged in consecutive seasons.

Analysis: 29 years old and just six years removed from a season where he averaged 117.6 receiver yards per game, Gordon will hope to find a fourth team to court him after being drafted by the Browns in 2012.
