1.Ricky Seals-Jones: Joining Chiefs (RotoWire) The Chiefs and Seals-Jones agreed to terms of a contract Friday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports. Analysis: According to Paylor, the deal encompasses the 2020 season. Seals-Jones has been moderately productive in three pro campaigns, averaging 12.9 yards per catch and scoring eight touchdowns on 60 career receptions between the Cardinals and Browns. The Chiefs don't have much depth behind Travis Kelce, so Seals-Jones may be the frontrunner for the No. 2 role.3 hours
2.Browns | David Njoku expected to stay (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is expected to remain with the team despite the signing of TE Austin Hooper, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter. Analysis: Injuries limited Njoku to four games in 2019, and the addition of Hooper is going to make a rebound season difficult to come by. At best, Njoku is a touchdown-dependent TE2.3 hours
3.Ricky Seals-Jones agrees to a one-deal with the Chiefs (FantasyPros) ProFootball Talk on Twitter is reporting that the Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with free agent tight end Ricky Seals-Jones. Analysis: By bringing in Seals-Jones, the Chiefs pick-up a good back-up for Travis Kelce. Last year while playing for the Browns, Seals-Jones totaled 14 receptions for 229 yards and four touchdowns for the season. Seals-Jones is a worthy pick-up in deep tight end premium leagues. If Kelce were to go down with an injury, Seals-Jones could creep up to TE2 numbers.3 hours
4.Steelers | Eric Ebron not fully healthy (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (ankle) said he has not fully recovered from his ankle surgery yet and could not play if the season started today. Analysis: Ebron has several months to rehab the injury and should be ready for training camp. He likely will be a red zone target in the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues. 5 hours
5.Bears | Two should be ready for camp (thehuddle) Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hip) and LB Roquan Smith (pectoral) are on track in their rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace. 5 hours
6.Bears | Anthony Miller making progress (thehuddle) Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) is on track in his rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace. Analysis: Miller saw his touchdowns drop to two this past season but finished with a solid 656 receiving yards. He probably will be one of the starting receivers for the Bears in 2020 and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in some leagues. 5 hours
7.Bears | Mitchell Trubisky on track for camp (thehuddle) Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is on track in his rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace. Analysis: Trubisky will be competing with Nick Foles for the starting quarterback job during training camp but will open camp as the No. 1 quarterback. He should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he keeps the job.6 hours
8.D.J. Reader officially signs a four-year, $53M deal with the Bengals (FantasyPros) As reported at the start of free agency, DT D.J. Reader has now officially signed a four-year, $53M deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, making him the highest paid nose tackle in the NFL. Analysis: Reader is due $22.25M in the first year and $31.75M over the first two years of his new contract. The stud nose tackle out of Clemson played his first four seasons with the Texans, and now will join forces with Pro-Bowler Geno Atkins to create a very formidable 1-2 punch on the defensive line in Cincinnati.7 hours
9.Buccaneers | Blaine Gabbert deal gets league approval (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Blaine Gabbert's contract was finalized Friday, April 3, by the NFL. Official terms of the deal were not disclosed.7 hours
10.Rams | Done deal for Michael Brockers (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams DE Michael Brockers' contract was finalized Friday, April 3, by the NFL. Official terms of the deal were not disclosed.8 hours
11.Shawn Williams: Kept instead of Kirkpatrick (RotoWire) The Bengals decided to keep Williams on the roster instead of Dre' Kirkpatrick in the wake of their free agency moves in the secondary, Chris Rolling of USA Today reports. Analysis: Williams has a cheaper price tag than Kirkpatrick and can play multiple positions, though his stint as a linebacker last year was more of a last resort and didn't go all that well.8 hours
12.Texans | Bradley Roby's extension gets a seal of approval (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Houston Texans CB Bradley Roby's contract extension was finalized Friday, April 3, by the NFL. Official terms of the deal were not disclosed.8 hours

14.49ers | Travis Benjamin, Tom Compton deals are done (thehuddle) Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers WR Travis Benjamin and OG Tom Compton's contracts were approved Friday, April 3, by the NFL. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.8 hours
15.Cardinals | Arizona officially adds two defenders (thehuddle) Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals DE Jonathan Bullard and LB De'Vondre Campbell's contracts were approved Friday, April 3, by the NFL. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.8 hours
16.Michael Brockers: Medically cleared (RotoWire) Brockers (ankle) passed a physical to finalize his three-year contract with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Brockers originally agreed to a three-year deal with the Ravens, but it later fell through because the team was concerned about an ankle sprain he suffered in Week 17 of last season. The Rams don't seem bothered by the issue and thus will keep their 2012 first-round pick in the fold.8 hours
17.Dynasty | Sammy Watkins restructures (Dynasty League Football) Chiefs receiver Sammy Watkins restructured his contract to a one-year $9M deal to remain with the team Analysis: His deal could be worth up to $16M with incentives. Few receivers have been more frustrating to own over the past five years since Watkins' sophomore season in 2015 when he produced a 60/1,047/9 stat line while with the Bills. He hasn't played a full 16-tame season since 2014 as a rookie. During week one of 2019, Watkins exploded in a game vs. the Jaguars when he reeled in nine receptions, 198 yards and three touchdowns only to then... (More)8 hours
18.Bengals | D.J. Reader is officially a large cat with stripes (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals DT D.J. Reader's contract is official, according to a source Friday, April 3. He will earn $22.25 million in Year 1 and $31.75 million over the first two seasons. Reader accepted language relating to the COVID-19 pandemic that says if he does not pass a physical after signing the deal, the team can either immediately release him or pay Reader and keep the contract in place. 9 hours
19.Trey Burton: Should be ready for camp (RotoWire) Burton (hip) is still rehabbing and remains on track to return for training camp, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Burton struggled to get back to full strength after sports hernia surgery last offseason, catching 14 passes in eight games during the 2019 campaign before undergoing hip labrum surgery in December. The need for surgery kicked in a guarantee that covers $4 million of his $6.7 million base salary for 2020, but it won't come as any surprise if Burton is cut or traded before Week 1, considering the Bears signed fellow tight end Jimmy Graham to a two-year, $16 million contract in mid-March.9 hours
20.Nick Foles: Headed for job competition (RotoWire) Foles and Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will have an open competition for the starting quarterback job, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky will get the first snap once the team is able to practice, though it sounds like the Bears aren't making any assumptions beyond that. The team dealt a fourth-round pick to Jacksonville for Foles, who then agreed to a restructured contract that maintains his guarantees but reduces his base salary, with the added benefit of player options to void the deal after 2020 or 2021.10 hours
21.Mitchell Trubisky: Primed for job battle (RotoWire) Trubisky (shoulder) will take the first snap whenever the Bears are able to practice, but coach Matt Nagy said it will be an open QB competition between the 25-year-old and Nick Foles, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Meanwhile, general manager Ryan Pace declined to comment on the team's impending decision on Trubisky's fifth-year option. The deadline to pick up the option is in early May, and while it likely would cost more than $20 million, the salary would be guaranteed for injury only. Trubisky is recovering from January surgery on a partially torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, while Foles has returned to health after an ... (More)10 hours
22.Broncos | Nick Vannett talks up blocking (thehuddle) Denver Broncos TE Nick Vannett on Friday, April 3, discussed his run blocking on a media conference call. 'I have always thought one of the traits need to have, you have to have some nasty,' Vannett said. 'It's not a cute job. It's not an attractive job. You are not going to get any stats from it. You know what, it's all mentality.' Analysis: Vannett only caught passes in 16 games with the Seahawks and Steelers last season, and he'll play the blocking tight end role in Denver with 2019 first-round pick Noah Fant and veteran Jeff Heuerman serving as the primary pass-catching tight ends and only viable fantasy options.11 hours
23.Mitch Trubisky to be in 'open competition' for starting gig (FantasyPros) Bear's General Manager Ryan Pace said that "it's an open competition" regarding the Bears' starting quarterback position. Analysis: After being drafted second overall in 2017, Trubisky took the starting job from Mike Glennon prior to Week 5 and has never had that role threatened. This offseason, however, has been a very different story as the Bears aggressively shopped the free agent market, eventually settling for multi-year deal with Nick Foles. This is Trubisky's last guaranteed season on his rookie deal before the Bears are forced to make a decision regarding his fifth-year option estimated to be around $24M. Pace's comments make it ap...

24.Patriots | Jarrett Stidham, N'Keal Harry have plan (thehuddle) New England Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham and WR N'Keal Harry are planning to meet to go over the offense and work out if OTAs are cancelled this spring by the coronavirus. Analysis: Sound plan for the two second-year players, who could be counted on heavily as starters in 2020, but Tom Brady-Julian Edelman they obviously aren't and both are off the fantasy re-draft radar in standard-sized leagues for the time being.11 hours
25.Steelers | JuJu Smith-Shuster among YAC leaders (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Shuster ranked third in the NFL, and second among wide receivers, in 2019 with his average of 5.9 yards per contact per reception. Analysis: JJSS was infamously one of fantasy's biggest busts of 2019, totaling only 73.2 fantasy points (standard scoring) in 12 games. But don't forget his injury issues or the Steelers' myriad QB issues with Ben Roethlisberger going down for the year in Week 2. Smith-Shuster is a mid-round draft value with WR1 bounce-back potential.11 hours
26.Panthers | QB signing lured Robby Anderson (thehuddle) Carolina Panthers WR Robby Anderson said Friday, April 3, that the Panthers' signing of QB Teddy Bridgewater, a close friend, was the 'icing on the cake' that convinced him to sign with Carolina. Analysis: Anderson joins a crowded offense in Carolina that already features heavily-used RB Christian McCaffrey and WRs D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel. Value him as a low-end WR3.12 hours
27.49ers | George Kittle tops in YAC per reception (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle leads all players with an average of 8.6 yards after catch per reception over the last two seasons. Analysis: Kittle is hitting his prime entering his fourth season, and is an elite TE1 by almost any metric. If you're going to reach for a tight end in your fantasy draft, Kittle is a more than worthy prize.12 hours
28.Sammy Watkins: Agrees to restructured deal (RotoWire) Watkins and Kansas City agreed Friday to a one-year, $9 million contract with up to an additional $7 million in incentives, Yahoo! Sports' Terez A. Paylor reports. Analysis: Watkins would have counted $21 million against Kansas City's cap space under the original deal, which was signed in the last of its three years. There's probably something to infer from the fact that the Chiefs didn't extend Watkins -- he simply took a paycut on his one remaining year -- but with this restructured deal he's all but guaranteed to start in Kansas City another year. If he retains the same role as he did in 2019, Watkins would likely serve as the Chiefs' primary... (More)12 hours
29.Jets | Breshad Perriman seeks to stay hot (thehuddle) New York Jets WR WR Breshad Perriman said Friday, April 3, he plans on picking up where he left off a season ago during his strong finish with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 'That was just a tiny glimpse and I'm looking forward to building on that run from last season,' Perriman said. Analysis: Over his final five games of 2019, with the Bucs' Mike Evans and Chris Godwin dealing with injuries, Perriman caught 25 of 37 targets for 506 yards and five TDs. He could be a sneaky WR2 pick-up as the new potential No. 1 WR for the Jets.13 hours
30.Broncos | Drew Lock readying for new offense (thehuddle) Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock is throwing five days a week at a spot near his parents' home in Kansas City, during the coronavirus shutdown and has been studying the team's new offensive playbook while watching recent New York Giants film with new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur coming aboard. Analysis: Lock's real-life performance (7 TDs, 3 INTs; 4-1 record) was better than his fantasy one as he averaged only 17.2 fantasy points per contest (32nd among QBs) over his five starts to end the 2019 season. He's a QB2 consideration, though, entering his second season with a new three-WR-based offense which should lead to more throwing.13 hours
31.Bears | Open competition for Chicago's starting QB gig (thehuddle) Chicago Bears QBs Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles will participate in an open competition for the 2020 starting quarterback job, according to general manager Ryan Pace. Analysis: Does it matter? Even after giving Trubisky the benefit of the doubt entering last year, he still laid an egg. After four years, the projection coming out of a college remains one in the pros. We've seen what Foles is as an NFL quarterback -- great off of the bench, and almost exclusively in Philly. Smack talk aside, the Bears have a questionable offensive line and some question marks in the weapons department. Head coach Matt Nagy's system is a derivative of the And... (More)14 hours
32.Chiefs | More on Sammy Watkins (thehuddle) Updating an earlier report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins can earn $750,000 for each of the following: eight touchdowns and a playoff berth; 65 catches and a playoff berth and 800 yards receiving with a playoff berth. He can earn $1.25 million for each of the following: an AFC Championship Game win with 50 percent of the snaps played; 65 catches with an AFC Championship win and 800 yards receiving with an AFC Championship win. 15 hours
33.Sammy Watkins signs a one-year, up to $16M deal to return to the Chiefs (FantasyPros) WR Sammy Watkins has signed a one-year deal with a base salary of $9M to return to Kansas City. The deal includes an incentive package that can pay him up to $16M in 2020. Analysis: This is a very interesting move by the Chiefs. There were rumblings that Kansas City would not retain Watkins under his current contract terms, and after the team announced they were bringing back WR Demarcus Robinson, everyone thought the writing was on the wall for Watkins to head elsewhere in 2020. Instead, Watkins will return to the Super Bowl champions for one more season after a 2019 where he ... (More)15 hours
34.Damarious Randall signs one-year deal with the Raiders (FantasyPros) Damarious Randall signed a one-year, $3.25 million deal with the Raiders on Thursday. Analysis: Randall racked up 61 tackles, 2.5 sacks and six pass defenses across 11 games for the Browns last season. He missed time in 2019 due to disciplinary issues. Randall has posted solid totals in back-to-back seasons and will compete for a starting safety job during training camp.16 hours
35.Chiefs | Sammy Watkins returning to Chiefs (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (Chiefs) restructured his contract Friday, April 3, which was a one-year deal worth $9 million and could reach $16 million with incentives. The move creates $5 million in salary cap space. Analysis: Watkins had a 52-673-3 season for the Super Bowl champs, and he'll just turn 27 in June. He hasn't played 16 games since his rookie season six years ago, but he'll be a flex option in good matchups. Target him as a WR4. 17 hours
36.Chiefs restructure Sammy Watkins contract (FFToday) The Chiefs have reached an agreement with Sammy Watkins on a new 1-year deal that will pay him a base of $9m for 2020 with an incentive package that can reach $16m, a source tells me. The move creates $5m in cap space for the Chiefs to operate this offseason. Analysis: Watkins was set to cost $21 million against the cap this season which didn't work for the cap stressed Chiefs who know have 10 of 11 players on offense returning for the 2020 season. Watkins got off to a fast start in 2019, posting a 9-198-3 line in Week 1 but didn't score another touchdown in the regular season. He'll ... (More)17 hours
37.Raiders | Damarious Randall headed to Las Vegas (thehuddle) Free-agent S Damarious Randall (Browns) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year undisclosed contract with the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, April 2.1 day
38.NFL | Drops not a problem for Breshad Perriman (thehuddle) New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman was not charged with a drop on any of his 69 targets in 2019 as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Furthermore, Perriman did not commit a drop on any of his 25 targets in 2018.1 day
39.Bills | Devin Singletary eluded tacklers last season (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary broke a tackle once every 7.6 rushing attempts in 2019 - good for the fifth-best rate in the league among qualified rushers.1 day
40.Patriots | James White had sure hands in 2019 (thehuddle) New England Patriots RB James White was charged with only two drops on 95 targets last season, resulting in a drop percentage of 2.1. White was charged with a drop on 4.1 percent of his 123 targets in 2018.1 day
41.Jadeveon Clowney reportedly may ‘wait and wait’ for the right deal (FantasyPros) Jadeveon Clowney willing to "wait and wait" until the right deal comes along before signing with a team this off-season. Analysis: The Jets, Titans, and Seahawks have reportedly been interested in signing Clowney to contract. It has been reported that he is dropping his demands to around $17 million per season. Clowney is the top pass rusher left on the board and is willing to wait around for the right deal. He totaled 31 tackles, 3.0 sacks, one interception and four forced fumbles across 13 games for the Seahawks in 2019.1 day
42.Eli Apple and the Raiders unable to finalize deal, will become free agent (FantasyPros) CB Eli Apple and the Las Vegas Raiders had a preliminary deal in place at the start of free agency, however, both sides have been unable to reach an agreement on terms, and Apple will become a free agent. Analysis: Apple, a 2016 first-round pick out of Ohio State, was set to become a member of the Las Vegas Raiders, but contract terms couldn't be agreed upon by Apple's representation and the organization. He should be a hot commodity on the open market given his label as a former top-10 selection, but he's generally failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him just a few y... (More)1 day
43.Patriots | Julian Edelman unlikely to be moved (thehuddle) New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman is not expected to be traded this offseason, according to Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston. Analysis: There was some recent speculation that Edelman might get traded to the Detroit Lions, but it is highly unlikely that New England would part with the one proven receiver on its roster. Assuming he remains a Patriot, Edelman figures to go from a high-end WR2 to a WR3 with Tom Brady no longer around.1 day
44.Bills | Two Bills sign tenders (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills WR Robert Foster and DB Levi Wallace signed their exclusive rights tender offers Thursday, April 2.1 day
45.Dez Bryant worked out with Dak Prescott (FantasyPros) Dez Bryant on Twitter stated that "Dak and myself just finished a great workout session... picked up where we left off." Analysis: Bryant has not played since tearing his Achilles back in November of 2018 while participating in his first practice with the Saints. During Bryant's time with the Cowboys when he was healthy, Bryant and Prescott played very well together. They combined for 119 receptions for 1,634 yards and 14 touchdowns, in 29 games between 2016-2017. Bryant is hoping to return to the league. If you have an open roster spot in a deep dynasty league, Bryant is worth ... (More)1 day
46.Packers | Devin Funchess officially added by Green Bay (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess officially signed with the team Thursday, April 2. The contract was previously reported to be worth $2.5 million for one season.1 day
47.Eric Ebron: Still in recovery mode (RotoWire) Ebron said he's not yet recovered from surgery on his ankle, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "If the season started today, I don't think I'd be able to 100 percent perform," Ebron added Thursday. Analysis: Ebron initially injured his ankle Aug. 4 but played through the pain until Week 12, after which he was shut down for the rest of the campaign. After breaking out for 13 touchdowns in his first year with the Colts in 2018, the aforementioned injury, among other things, contributed to him managing just three TDs last season. Since undergoing an initial procedure in early December, Ebron more recently had his ankle examined an... (More)1 day
48.Cowboys | Aldon Smith officially signs (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys LB Aldon Smith officially signed with the team Thursday, April 2. It's reported to be a one-year, $4 million contract.1 day
49.Raiders | Eli Apple deal falls apart (thehuddle) Free-agent CB Eli Apple's reported deal with the Las Vegas Raiders fell apart Thursday, April 2, when the two sides were unable to finalize a contract, per sources. Apple will remain a free agent.1 day

(thehuddle) Houston Texans S Justin Reid has spoken with head coach/general manager Bill O'Brien about signing his free-agent brother S Eric Reid (Panthers). O'Brien is said to have been very positive about Eric Reid but it's unclear whether the Texans will make a contract offer.1 day

(thehuddle) Free-agent LB Jadeveon Clowney is targeted by the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans now that he has dropped his asking price to $17 million per year. The Seattle Seahawks could also bring him back, according to John Clayton of 710 ESPN Seattle Thursday, April 2.1 day
52.Falcons | Dante Fowler sets lofty goal (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons DE Dante Fowler told reporters Thursday, April 2, he's aiming to record at least 23 sacks in the 2020 season and break Michael Strahan's league record of 22.5 set in 2001. Fowler set a career-high with 11.5 sacks with the Los Angeles Rams in 2019.1 day
53.Eric Ebron still not 100 percent from ankle injury (FantasyPros) Eric Ebron said that he is not 100 percent recovered from the ankle injury that shut down his 2019 season, but he is not concerned. Analysis: Ebron just signed a 2-year/$12M contract with the Steelers and should assume the top tight end role should his health allow it. The former first-rounder played through the injury for a few weeks in 2019, but had to eventually shut down his season and focus on rehab. Although Ebron said that he is not concerned about his ankle, the fact that he isn't fully healed is something to monitor throughout the offseason.1 day
54.Blaine Gabbert: Slated to back up Brady (RotoWire) The Buccaneers have signed Gabbert to a one-year deal, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Analysis: Gabbert, who landed on IR last September due to a shoulder injury, is back with the Bucs, presumably healthy and now in line to work behind new QB Tom Brady. The No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft last saw regular-season action in 2018, appearing in eight games (including three starts) with the Titans.1 day
55.Broncos | Nick Vannett deal becomes official (thehuddle) Denver Broncos TE Nick Vannett was officially signed to a two-year contract Thursday, April 2. Financial terms weren't disclosed.1 day
56.Julian Edelman could be heading to the Lions (FantasyPros) Bill Simmons suggested that wide receiver Julian Edelman could be on the move in a trade that would land him in Detroit. Analysis: Although this rumor seems to be extremely speculative, Colin Cowherd corroborated the rumblings when he replied to Simmons' statement with "It's talked about." Edelman has been Tom Brady's security blanket for the last six years, compiling 530 receptions and 32 touchdowns over the time. With Brady in Tampa Bay and Lions' coach Matt Patricia making moves for a lot of ex-Patriots, keep a close eye on this developing story. If Edelman were to move to De... (More)1 day
57.Tua Tagovailoa medical re-check results were ‘overwhelmingly positive’ (FantasyPros) Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa voluntarily participated in a medical re-check conducted by an independent doctor that was selected by NFL team physicians, and the results were overwhelmingly positive. Analysis: Tagovailoa enters the 2020 NFL Draft as one of the biggest question marks after his recent injury history at Alabama, with the ankle and the hip. He's certainly doing everything in his power to debunk the myth that he is an injury risk by volunteering to participate in a medical re-check. With all the positivity surrounding his health, it would be a shock to see Miami, with the 5th overall pick, let Tagovailoa slip past them with their n... (More)1 day
58.Darryl Roberts: Joins Lions' secondary (RotoWire) The Lions have signed Roberts to a one-year contract, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Roberts, who logged a career-high 63 tackles in 13 games for the Jets last season, will provide the Lions with added cornerback depth. The 29-year-old entered the league as a seventh-round pick by the Patriots in 2015, making him the latest Detroit roster addition with New England ties.1 day
59.Blaine Gabbert signs one-year deal with the Buccaneers (FantasyPros) Blaine Gabbert is signing a one-year deal with the Buccaneers. Analysis: Gabbert will backup Tom Brady and is familiar with Bruce Arians offense. He spent the majority of 2019 on the injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. Gabbert is mainly a handcuff for Brady in two-quarterback league formats.1 day
60.David Njoku not expected to be traded by the Browns (FantasyPros) David Njoku is reportedly not expected to be traded, despite the Browns signing of tight end Austin Hooper this offseason. Analysis: The Browns recently signed Austin Hooper as the highest paid tight end in football. With this transaction, it appeared the Browns were ready to move on from Njoku. The team has not announced any plans of dealing the 23-year-old and could feature him in two-tight end sets. Njoku spent most of 2019 on the injured reserve, but did manage five catches for 41 yards and touchdown across four games. Unless he is dealt, Njoku is a borderline TE3 in his cu... (More)1 day
61.P.J. Williams signs a one-year, $2M deal to return to New Orleans (FantasyPros) Saints CB P.J. Williams has inked a one-year, $2M fully guaranteed deal to return to New Orleans. Analysis: A former 2015 third-round pick out of FSU has played four seasons with the Saints, recording 151 tackles and four interceptions in 47 games. He started eight games last year and will provide New Orleans with depth in the secondary for another season.1 day
62.Darryl Roberts agrees to a one-year deal with the Lions (FantasyPros) Darryl Roberts agreed to a one-year deal with the Lions. Analysis: Roberts racked up a career-high 63 tackles (58 solo) and one interception across 13 games for the Jets last season. He will provide depth for the Lions at cornerback, but is mainly a fantasy option in deep-league IDP formats.1 day
63.Derrick Henry: Signs franchise tender (RotoWire) Henry signed his franchise-tag tender Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Henry's decision to sign the tender hints at confidence in working out a multi-year contract before the July 15 deadline, though Titans general manager Jon Robinson suggested Wednesday that the two parties will wait until summer to hammer out details. Any concern about a holdout can probably be put to rest, as there's no advantage to signing the tender if Henry would consider missing games in the absence of a long-term deal. Players that opted for the holdout route in past seasons declined to sign their franchise tenders, thus avoiding any fines for missing ... (More)1 day
64.Bryce Love: Facing tough competition (RotoWire) Love (knee), J.D. McKissic and Derrius Guice are all candidates for passing-down snaps, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Analysis: With Love, Guice and Adrian Peterson already on the roster, it was a bit surprising to see Washington sign both McKissic and Peyton Barber during the first two weeks of free agency. There's still an opening on passing downs, but it appears Love will face tough competition for a spot on the 53-man roster, hoping to return strong after redshirting his rookie campaign. The 2019 fourth-round pick suffered an ACL tear in December 2018, then had a follow-up surgery in October to address stiffness in the same kne... (More)1 day
65.Derrick Henry officially signs $10.2M franchise tender (FantasyPros) Tennessee RB Derrick Henry has officially signed his $10.2M franchise tender today. Analysis: The Titans and Henry are eager to come to terms on a long-term deal prior to July 15. Nevertheless, he'll be the focal point of the Tennessee offense in 2020.1 day
66.David Njoku: No trade imminent (RotoWire) Despite signing Austin Hooper, the Browns aren't expected to trade Njoku this offseason, ESPN.com's Jake Trotter reports. Analysis: Hooper's presence will make it harder for Njoku to draw targets and establish fantasy value, but the young tight end should nonetheless have an important role under new coach Kevin Stefanski, who frequently utilized multi-TE formations while serving as offensive coordinator in Minnesota last year.
