1.Dynasty | CeeDee Lamb measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb measured in at 6' 1 5/8" and 198 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hand size was 9 1/4". Locked in a battle for top-receiver-off-the-board with Alabama's Jerry Jeudy, Lamb measures in a 1/2" better and his hand size is good enough to maintain his value. Dynasty leaguers can't go wrong with a selection of Lamb or Jeudy as top receiver and speed at the NFL Combine and drafted situation will go a long way toward determining which player ultimately hears his name called first. La... (More)less than a minute
2.Dynasty | Tee Higgins measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Tee Higgins measured in at 6'3 5/8" and 216 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands are 9 1/4". Higgins remains as DLF's rookie WR3 and our R6 overall and these measurements make him a borderline first-tier player available in the middle of the first round of dynasty drafts. A top prospect out of high school, Higgins started slowly in his junior year but exploded in the second half and finished with 1,167 yards and 13 touchdowns. While Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb continue to garner top-prospect gra... (More)less than a minute
3.Dynasty | Henry Ruggs measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs measured in at 5'11" and 188 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hand size was a surprising 10 1/8". The odds-on favorite for the fastest 40 time belongs to Ruggs with some believing he'll break the 4.20 barrier though 4.29 is far more likely. Locked in a battle with TCU's Jalen Reagor for top 'smaller' wide receiver, Ruggs' is a polarizing prospect whose production was held back due to Alabama's star-filled offense. A speed and separation specialist, he is clearl... (More)less than a minute
4.Dynasty | Collin Johnson measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Collin Johnson in at 6'5 5/8" and 222 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands were 9". The massive target at Texas never eclipsed 1,000 yards but came close as a junior in 2018 when he produced 985 yards and seven touchdowns. Quarterback play and offensive scheme limited Johnson's productivity and he's arguably a better professional prospect than his numbers would suggest. Receivers of his size don't often become big producers at the next level but Johnson has the skill set to be a red zo... (More)less than a minute
5.Dynasty | Jerry Jeudy measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Jerry Jeudy measured in at 6'1" and 193 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands are 9 1/2". He measures in a 1/2" smaller than Lamb but his hands are 1/4" larger. It's a dead heat for these two receivers both in the NFL Draft and upcoming dynasty rookie drafts. Possessing elite route and separation skills, Jeudy's collegiate production was hurt by Alabama's star-filled offense but there's no questioning his next-level ability. Jeudy is found as DLF's WR2 and R4 overal... (More)less than a minute
6.Dynasty | Laviska Shenault measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Laviska Shenault measured in at 6'0 5/8" and 227 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hand size was 9". There may not be a more intriguing rookie receiver prospect in 2020 than Shenault out of Colorado. A sub-par junior season that saw only 764 yards and four touchdowns has dropped the receiver's value significantly though fantasy circles remain extremely high on his prospects in the NFL. Drafted situation will be key for his early career prospects toward determining whether his lackluster college pro... (More)less than a minute
7.Dynasty | A. Gandy-Golden measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden measured in at 6'4" and 223 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands are 9 5/8". AGG is as intriguing a prospect there is in the 2020 receiver class. With elite size, the two-year senior from Liberty produced 2,400 yards and 20 touchdowns. AGG will have to fight the small-school label similar to current NFL receiver Courtland Sutton (SMU) but should remain on fantasy radars, perhaps securing a spot at the bottom of the second round of rookie drafts with a strong performance at the N... (More)less than a minute
8.Dynasty | Tyler Johnson measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Tyler Johnson measured in at 6'1 3/8" and 206 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands were 9". 2,500 yards and 25 touchdowns over his past two years at Minnesota legitimizes Johnson as a top prospect at the next level though his current DLF rookie rank, WR11 and R15 overall, provides intriguing value vs. upside potential in the second round of rookie drafts. He's just another 2020 rookie receiver with good size and unlimited potential making this year's rookie draft one of the deepest in the p... (More)less than a minute
9.Dynasty | Justin Jefferson measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson measured in at 6'1 1/4" and 202 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands are 9 1/8". DLF's WR7 and R12 overall, Jefferson produced 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns as Joe Burrow's primary target. While not possessing the elite characteristics of Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb, Jefferson is a fine receiver prospect in his own right and carries the size and skill set to be an upside value in the top half of the second round in dynasty rookie drafts. All eyes will be on his 40 time this w... (More)less than a minute
10.Dynasty | Joe Burrow measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow measured in at 6'3 1/2" and 221 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: All the buzz today is about Burrow's measured hand size which came in at 9". The warning flags are flying as it's below the minimum desired 9 1/4" size though Jared Goff also measured in at 9" and was the top selection. Burrow is still expected to be selected at 1.01 overall by the Bengals but hand size when combined with only average arm strength could provide some drama as we near the NFL Draft. Stay tuned to D...

11.Dynasty | Brandon Aiyuk measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk measured in at 5'11 5/8" and 205 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hands are 9 3/4". Aiyuk produced nearly 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns for Arizona State and is largely a one-year producer. His size won't provide much buzz and he remains buried on rankings behind more athletic players with greater production but he does have circles of support. His 40 time combined with his drafted situation will be key to his early-career upside. As DLF's rookie WR11, R17 overall, More)less than a minute
12.Dynasty | Jordan Love measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie quarterback Jordan Love measured in at 6'3 3/4" and 224 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: Hand size is 10 1/2". His massive mitts combined with his wingspan of 80" are both noteworthy. Love is a fast-rising prospect and is now being often mocked often into the bottom of the first round of the NFL Draft as teams search for the next Patrick Mahomes, Love checks many of the boxes, primarily arm strength, mobility and throwing on the move, though his decision-making is questionable. He carries too much intrigue to fall... (More)less than a minute
13.Dynasty | Donovan Peoples-Jones measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones measured in at 6'1 5/8" and 212 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hand size was 10 1/8". Peoples-Jones was a top recruit out of high school but under-performed badly at Michigan producing only 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns over three years. Currently ranked as DLF's rookie WR15 and R25 overall, he'll carry major sleeper status as he enters the next level. Like many others during the NFL Combine, all eyes will be on his 40 time. Stay tuned to DLF as we are in Indianapolis ... (More)46 minutes
14.Giants release TE Scott Simonson (Rotoworld) Giants released TE Scott Simonson. Analysis: Simonson played 21 games with the Giants from 2018-2019, generally being utilized in a block-heavy role. Overall, the veteran TE has caught just 12 passes for 107 yards and one touchdown since entering the league in 2014.51 minutes
15.LVE expected to participate in spring wo... (Rotoworld) Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said that LB Leighton Vander Esch is expected to participate in spring workouts to some degree. Analysis: Jones added, "Once we see him, we'll have a better feel for it. But he'll have some limitations up until training camp before we really turn him loose." Jones said previously that Vander Esch's January neck surgery "went well." The Cowboys' stud LB was brilliant as a rookie in 2018 before playing in just nine games last season. Vander Esch possesses the type of sideline-to-sideline ability that can help increase the overall speed of a def... (More)57 minutes
16.Dynasty | Jalen Reagor measurements (Dynasty League Football) Rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor measured in at 5'10 5/8 and 206 lbs at the NFL Combine. Analysis: His hand size came in at 9 1/2". The measurements were about as expected and it's good enough to hold his current dynasty rookie value as DLF's WR4 and R7 overall. Reagor is currently ranked ahead of Alabama's Henry Ruggs and Colorado's Laviska Shenault but all rankings could be shaken up following this week's Combine workouts. Stay tuned to DLF as we keep you up to date on all happenings, news and notes for ... (More)1 hour
17.Vontaze Burfict: Reinstated from suspension (RotoWire) Burfict was reinstated from a suspension last month and hopes to play in the NFL in 2020, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Burfict opened 2019 as a starter for Oakland but was suspended for the rest of the season after a helmet-to-helmet hit Week 4 against Indianapolis. The 29-year-old linebacker has a long history of dirty hits and hasn't played at a high level since 2017, so the most he can hope for this offseason is a chance to battle for a starting job.1 hour
18.DAL hasn't met Dak's agent since Septemb... (Rotoworld) Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said the Cowboys haven't met or negotiated with Dak Prescott's agent Todd France since September. Analysis: Jones added, "No contract with Prescott or Amari Cooper will be agreed upon until CBA rules for the 2020 league year are decided." The good news is that the Cowboys met with Cooper and his agent Chafie Fields at the Pro Bowl in Orlando. Jones said the conversation was "very upbeat." Recent reports have been all over the place with Prescott, but most recently NFL Network's Ian Rapoport noted the Cowboys are attempting to get a long-term ... (More)2 hours
19.Tyler Johnson won't run the 40-yard dash at the Combine (FantasyPros) The plan for former Gophers WR Tyler Johnson in Indianapolis this week is to complete positional drills, interviews with teams, and medical testing. He'll wait to run the 40 on March 25 at his Pro Day. This gives him another month to work on that and hopefully do well. Analysis: Tyler Johnson is an intriguing name to watch towards the later rounds of the NFL Draft. While he has great hands and excels in contested situations, his tape suggests average athleticism. Choosing to participate in other positional drills, but not participating in the 40-yard dash is a bad look. Pro days are not typically laser timed, which can help mak... (More)3 hours
20.CeeDee Lamb weighs in at 198 pounds (FantasyPros) At the measurements portion of the 2020 NFL Combine, CeeDee Lamb weighed in at 198 pounds. Analysis: Lamb was listed by Oklahoma at 189, so this is a bit of a jump from what we expected to see. One of the "knocks" on Lamb was his size and whether or not he was going to be able to have the durability to withstand NFL competition versus what he saw in the Big-12. Lamb weighing in at 198 is more than enough, but the question now becomes whether or not he can maintain his explosiveness at that weight. All eyes will be on him in the 40-yard dash.3 hours
21.Report: Burfict 'committed' to return in... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports LB Vontaze Burfict is committed to returning to the NFL in 2020. Analysis: Burfict is an unrestricted free agent and has reportedly been working out at Arizona State. He's apparently spent the entire offseason, "watching tape, talking to coaches, league executives, other experts about the proper code of conduct to stay in the league." The veteran LB was suspended for the final 12 games of the 2019 season following a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on Colts TE Jack Doyle. Of course, this was hardly Burfict's first mistake. The long-time Bengals ... (More)3 hours
22.ATL expected to pick up Schaub's $2M opt... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Falcons are expected to pick up QB Matt Schaub’s $2 million option for 2020. Analysis: Schaub started one game in 2019, throwing for 460 yards against the Seahawks. Still, it took 52 attempts to do so, and the Falcons trailed 24-0 at halftime. It was Schaub's first start since 2015. He'll be 39 in June and can't be counted on as a realistic option for contention if Matt Ryan misses time. It'd hardly be surprising if the Falcons use a late-round draft pick on the position.4 hours
23.Cowboys | Leighton Vander Esch likely will be limited (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) likely will be limited during offseason workouts since he is recovering from neck surgery. 4 hours
24.Hayden Hurst: Drawing trade interest (RotoWire) The Patriots and Jaguars are interested in acquiring Hurst from the Ravens, Eugene Frenette of The Florida Times-Union reports reports. Analysis: The 2018 first-round pick reportedly wants an opportunity to catch more passes, after averaging 28.6 offensive snaps and 2.4 targets per game in 2019. He may be underutilized in Baltimore, but Hurst's well-rounded skill set makes him a valuable backup to both Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle in the Ravens' TE-heavy offense. It's a luxury the team can afford for the time being, though an offer of an early draft pick or a starting-caliber defensive player might persuade the Ravens to sacrifice som... (More)4 hours
25.Cowboys | No talks between DAL, Dak Prescott lately (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott's agent has not talked with the Cowboys about a long-term contract since September, according to vice president Stephen Jones. The two sides may meet at the NFL Scouting Combine, but nothing has been finalized. Analysis: It appears like Prescott likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason since the two sides have not negotiated for a while. He was one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL this past season and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2020. 4 hours
26.Danny Amendola re-signs with Lions (FantasyPros) Danny Amendola has re-signed with the Detroit Lions. He signed a one-year deal to return to Detroit. Analysis: The veteran Amendola will continue to work the slot, but he will have to fight for targets with fellow wide receivers Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay, along with tight end T.J. Hockenson. As such, Amendola won't be much of a fantasy option to start the season outside of deep PPR leagues.4 hours
27.Mason Crosby signs extension with Packers (FantasyPros) The Packers have signed kicker Mason Crosby to a three-year, $12.9 million contract extension. Analysis: Crosby looked like a cut candidate entering the 2019 season, but he was able to rebound for the Packers. After struggling in 2017 and 2018, Crosby made over 90% of his field goals and only missed one of his 41 attempted extra points during the 2019 regular season.4 hours
28.Ben Roethlisberger 2-3 months from 'total clearance' (FantasyPros) Ben Roethlisberger was able to resume throwing a football over the weekend for the first time since undergoing surgery. He told reporters that he's 2.5 to three months away from receiving total clearance from his doctors. Analysis: The Steelers have continued to say that they expect Big Ben to be ready for Week 1 of the 2020 season, but he still has a lot of recovery ahead of him. Given his age and his declining play on the field in 2019 prior to his injury, along with the decline of the surrounding offense, Roethlisberger isn't likely to be more than a late-round fl... (More)4 hours
29.Jacoby Brissett: Colts say all options open at QB (FantasyPros) When discussing his QB situation for 2020, Colts owner Jim Irsay indicated that all options remain open, including sticking with incumbent starter Jacoby Brissett. Analysis: Much of the offseason rumors are around veteran Philip Rivers signing with the Colts to take over under center. Of course, the team just signed Brissett to an extension ahead of last season, and given some of the flashes he's shown on the field and the state of QB play around the league he could also end up starting elsewhere. At this point, he's a volatile player to own in fantasy, and he's not... (More)4 hours
30.Adam Vinatieri's future with the Colts unknown (FantasyPros) Colts owner Jim Irsay isn't sure if veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri will be back with the team in 2020. Analysis: Vinatieri is currently a free agent, and while the team hasn't officially ruled out a return, they are not committing to the veteran at this point. It has continued to be an up-and-down period for Vinatieri, who only made 68% of his field goals and missed six of his 28 attempted PATs in 2019.4 hours
31.Stephen Gostkowski could be cut by Patriots (FantasyPros) Stephen Gostkowski is at risk of losing his roster spot with the Patriots, according to NESN. Analysis: While Gostkowski is a household name as a kicker, this news isn't extremely surprising given he turned 36 in January, is coming off hip surgery, and wasn't great before landing on IR with the injury to start the 2019 season. We should at least expect the Patriots to bring in some competition this summer if Gostkowski remains with the team, but New England could also save $3.5 million in cap space if they cut the veteran kicker.5 hours
32.Mike Gesicki to be used more in the slot? (FantasyPros) ESPN believes Mike Gesicki will be used more in the slot during 3WR sets for the Dolphins in 2020 under new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. Analysis: Gesicki really came on late during the 2019 season after a slow start to the year. He ended the season with six or more targets in eight of his final nine games, scoring five touchdowns over his last six games. While the quarterback situation is up in the air currently, Gesicki sits at TE15 in our current expert consesus rankings. He could become an interested late-round TE1 option as the summer approaches.5 hours
33.Dynasty | Bryan Edwards breaks his foot (Dynasty League Football) Posting a note to his Twitter, incoming rookie receiver Bryan Edwards announced he will be unable to participate in the NFL Combine after breaking his foot while training. Analysis: You hate to see this for any player. Edwards was a player the dynasty community had a particular interest in evaluating at the combine. In one-QB leagues, Edwards was a borderline first-round player for rookie drafts. DLF had him as our WR9 in our pre-combine rookie rankings, and our startup draft ADP data had him being drafted as WR46. Now he will likely fall in dr... (More)5 hours
34.Jaguars decline LB Jake Ryan's option (Rotoworld) Jaguars declined LB Jake Ryan's option. Analysis: This was an easy decision after Ryan returned from knee surgery to play in just two games last year. The move saves Jacksonville $6 million in cap space.5 hours
35.Marcell Dareus won't have option picked ... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms the Jaguars aren't expected to exercise their option on Marcell Dareus. Analysis: He'll become a free agent. The option would have guaranteed Dareus nearly $20 million, so this was never going to get picked up. Jacksonville has the worst cap situation in the league. They can free up another $11 million from releasing CB A.J. Bouye.5 hours
36.Jags DE Yannick Ngakoue seeking $22M ann... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Michael DiRocco reports free agent DE Yannick Ngakoue is asking for $22 million annually. Analysis: That would make Ngakoue the highest paid defensive end, topping the $21 million AAV Demarcus Lawrence got from Dallas last offseason. While his sack totals have been in decline, Ngakoue has been one of the most consistent pass rushers in the league over his first four years (37.5 sacks) and is only entering his age-25 season. The Jags are likely going to franchise Ngakoue to buy some time in long-term talks, but a deal should eventually get done.6 hours
37.NFL | Vontaze Burfict plans to play in 2020 (thehuddle) Free-agent LB Vontaze Burfict (Raiders) was reinstated by the league in January and has reportedly been working out at his alma mater (Arizona State) in an effort to returning to the NFL in 2020. Burfict was suspended for the final 12 games of the 2019 season after delivering a helmet-to-helmet hit to Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle.6 hours
38.Browns likely to release DE Olivier Vern... (Rotoworld) The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns will "probably" move on from DE Olivier Vernon this offseason. Analysis: Vernon is owed a non-guaranteed $15.5 million in the final year of his deal. After an injury-shortened 2019, Vernon would likely need a pay cut to return with the Browns — something he's seems unlikely to accept. Cleveland may look to free agency — they've been linked to Everson Griffen — to replace Vernon as Myles Garrett's bookend.6 hours
39.Browns a landing spot for Anthony Harris... (Rotoworld) The Cleveland Plain Dealer considers the Browns a landing spot for free agent Anthony Harris. Analysis: The Browns got by with Juston Burris opposite Damarious Randall last year but are in the market for an upgrade. Making a run at Harris makes sense given his Kevin Stefanski ties, though he's likely going to land at least the $10 million AAV Lamarcus Joyner got last offseason. Cleveland may also be a fit for free agent Everson Griffen depending on what happens with Olivier Vernon.7 hours
40.Matt Judon: Prepping for franchise tag (RotoWire) Judon is expected to receive a franchise tag, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Judon is the only reasonable candidate for Baltimore this offseason, coming off a 2019 campaign with career highs for sacks (9.5), QB hits (33) and forced fumbles (four). His representatives likely will argue that his fourth-in-the-league total for QB hits shows pass-rushing ability beyond the sack numbers, while Baltimore's front office can argue that Judon was aided by the team's league-high blitz rate (54.9 percent) and excellent secondary. Regardless of how the arguments play out, Judon presumably will want a contract exceeding that of fo... (More)7 hours
41.Jaron Brown: Likely leaving Seattle (RotoWire) Brown isn't likely to re-sign with Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Brown signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason and made it through both years of his deal. He started six of his 30 regular-season games and averaged just 24.2 offensive snaps per contest, catching 30 of 47 targets for 386 yards and seven touchdowns. Brown isn't likely to find a top-three WR role as a 30-year-old free agent, but his ability to contribute on special teams and in the red zone could lead to some interest for a depth job. Meanwhile, the Seahawks don't have a clear No. 3 behind Tyler Lockett and DK Me... (More)7 hours
42.Elijah Lee likely to be non-tendered (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco expects the 49ers to non-tender restricted free agent LB Elijah Lee. Analysis: Lee spent most of 2019 on the practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster when Kwon Alexander went on short-term IR in Week 10, appearing in eight games (one start). The low tender of $2.1 million is too high for Lee — he's a better candidate to be re-signed on a minimum deal.7 hours
43.Ben Roethlisberger: Three months away from clearance (RotoWire) Roethlisberger (elbow) believes he's about two and a half or three months away from receiving full medical clearance, Ron Cook of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Analysis: The Steelers posted a short video Saturday of Roethlisberger lofting a pass inside a gym. The quarterback notes he was able to bypass tennis-ball throwing and instead moved right to footballs, but his timeline estimate suggests he won't be ready for strenuous activity any sooner than the end of the offseason program or the beginning of training camp. Roethlisberger will turn 38 in May, looking to rebound from Sept. 23 surgery to repair a torn muscle in his thr... (More)7 hours
44.Noah Fant working on route running (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeff Legwold believes Noah Fant needs to improve his short-to-intermediate routes. Analysis: The Broncos want Fant to add some "diversity to his route tree." Fant showed big-play potential as a rookie, but half his yards came in two games, and he failed to clear five targets over the final six weeks. With not much behind Courtland Sutton, the Broncos are counting on Fant taking a step forward.7 hours
45.Marlon Mack: Not discussing extension yet (RotoWire) Colts owner Jim Irsay denied reports about Mack discussing a contract extension with the team, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. Analysis: This doesn't mean an extension isn't in play, but it does suggest the Colts have bigger offseason priorities, including a potential quarterback upgrade and convincing left tackle Anthony Castonzo not to retire. Mack is entering the final season of his rookie contract, after averaging 75.7 and 77.9 rushing yards per game the past two years. His work on the ground has been solid, but he's missed multiple games in each of his three seasons, and his PFF grades for pass blocking and re... (More)7 hours
46.Mike Gesicki likely to play 'big slot' r... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Cameron Wolfe expects Mike Gesicki to be used in the slot in three-wide sets. Analysis: Gesicki played the big slot role for Miami last year, and that should continue under new OC Chan Gailey, who's one of the most pass-heavy playcallers. It's bad news for the target shares of Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns. Gesicki showed signs of breaking out in 2019 — scoring touchdowns in five of the last six weeks. The makings are there for a third-year leap.8 hours
47.Patriots could move on from Gostkowski (Rotoworld) The Patriots could release Stephen Gostkowski this offseason. Analysis: Gostkowski is entering his age-36 season coming off hip surgery. He missed five kicks in four games before landing on IR last year, putting his status with New England up in the air. The Patriots would save $3.5 million from Gostkowski's release.8 hours
48.Colts unsure if Vinatieri will be back (Rotoworld) Colts owner Jim Irsay said he isn’t sure if free agent Adam Vinatieri will be back. Analysis: Vinatieri is working his way back from December knee surgery. It's not clear if he plans on playing another season or if the Colts would want him after he missed eight field goals and six extra points last year. There should be more clarity on Vinatieri next month.8 hours
49.Jaguars | Yannick Ngakoue seeking $22 million (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent DE Yannick Ngakoue is seeking a long-term deal that pays $22 million annually. The franchise tag would be worth around $19.3 million if used on him. Analysis: Ngakoue was tied for fifth in fantasy points at the position last season in 15 games. It was a down year that he only had eight sacks, and there is certainly is more in the tank. 9 hours
50.Chargers | More work for Austin Ekeler? (thehuddle) Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler needs to see 15 to 20 touches per game, according to head coach Anthony Lynn. Analysis: Ekeler is one of the more versatile backs in the NFL, and he finished 2019 with 92 catches and eight receiving touchdowns. There's a good chance he will be he unquestioned top back and a potential RB1 in 2020 if Melvin Gordon doesn't return, but even if Gordon is back, Ekeler can be a RB2 in PPR formats.20 hours
51.Raiders | Josh Jacobs to catch more passes? (thehuddle) Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs will have a larger role in the passing game in 2020, in the opinion of Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. Analysis: Jacobs lived up to the hype as a rookie, rushing for 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. Even if his role in the passing game remains stagnant, he will still be a low-end RB1 candidate in 2020.21 hours
52.Broncos | Noah Fant working on route tree? (thehuddle) Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant needs to add some 'diversity to his route tree' by improving his short-to-intermediate routes, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com. Analysis: Fant had a few big games in an otherwise inconsistent rookie year. He still has long-term TE1 potential, but fantasy owners shouldn't bank on that leap coming in 2020.22 hours
53.Jaguars | DJ Chark here to stay? (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark Jr. credits his success in 2019 to an improved commitment to preparation, and Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com believes Chark should deliver 1,000 receiving yards and eight to 10 touchdowns in 2020. Analysis: Chark emerged as the top receiver for the Jaguars in 2019, and while Jacksonville is unlikely to have a high-powered passing attack, Chark should be able to deliver WR3 production as the No. 1 option.22 hours
54.Steelers | Concerns for JuJu Smith-Schuster? (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster had eight catches on 11 targets in the six quarters he played with QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) in 2019, and Brooke Pryor of ESPN believes Smith-Schuster needs another 'reliable offensive weapon' to be at his best. Analysis: While Smith-Schuster's numbers would have been better with a healthy Roethlisberger under center, we still don't know if he can replicate his monster 2018 numbers as the go-to option of the passing attack. 22 hours
55.Dolphins | Mike Gesicki to stay involved? (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki will likely be used as a slot receiver in sets featuring three or more receivers in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's system, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com. Analysis: After a quiet rookie year, Gesicki showed signs of life in 2019, finishing with 51 catches for 570 yards and five touchdowns. He could be worth a flier as a high-upside TE2.23 hours
56.Bills | Devin Singletary to be featured? (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary should see the 'majority' of the backfield touches in 2020, according to Marc Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com. Analysis: Singletary added an explosive element to Buffalo's offense, averaging 5.1 yards per carry and piling up 969 total yards in 12 games. He took over as the lead back down the stretch last season, and a full season in that role should at least yield RB2 numbers.23 hours
57.Ravens | Baltimore working to keep Jihad Ward (thehuddle) The Baltimore Ravens are hopeful of re-signing DE/LB Jihad Ward, a pending unrestricted free agent. The team thinks he fits well with them and they like his motor, versatility. The two sides have had discussions over the past week.23 hours
58.Patriots | Devin McCourty to get franchise tag? (thehuddle) New England Patriots FS Devin McCourty might be a candidate for the franchise tag, and he could cost $11.5 million against the cap if that's the route head coach Bill Belichick and company elect.23 hours
59.Patriots | Stephen Gostkowski could be cut loose (thehuddle) New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski (hip) has one year remaining on his contract, but he is 36 years old and coming off hip surgery. Releasing him would free up nearly $3.5 million in salary cap space.1 day
60.Colts | Not pursuing extension for Marlon Mack (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not in line for a contract extension at this time. '(Marlon), we love him, but we love the other two guys. We want him back and he wants to be back, really. There were some mis-reports that we were pursuing an extension there. That's not the case. I don't know where those came from,' team owner Jim Irsay said Sunday, Feb. 23.1 day
61.Colts | Uncertain future for Adam Vinatieri (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts PK Adam Vinatieri (knee), set to be an unrestricted free agent March 18, is undergoing rehab after surgery in December to repair a damaged meniscus and patellar tendon in his left knee. 'Adam knows how much I think of him. He's unbelievable. We'll see. He's in rehab mode now and we're in the middle of trying to put the team together,' owner Jim Irsay said Sunday, Feb. 23.1 day
62.Irsay denies Marlon Mack extension repor... (Rotoworld) Speaking Sunday, Colts owner Jim Irsay denied reports that the team is working on an extension with contract-year RB Marlon Mack. Analysis: Irsay could just be splitting hairs, as the Indianapolis Star reported earlier this month that talks would "heat up" at the Combine. That's this week. Mack has proven to be a perfectly-ordinary early-down back. He doesn't get much more than what's blocked, though there's a lot blocked in Indy. The 2017 fourth-rounder is still young, turning 24 in March.1 day
63.Colts still hoping to re-sign LT Castonz... (Rotoworld) Speaking Sunday, Colts owner Jim Irsay said the team still hopes to re-sign impending free agent LT Anthony Castonzo. Analysis: "I'm hopeful," Irsay said. Going on 32, Castonzo said at the end of the season that he was considering retirement. That was 55 days ago and we haven't heard anything since. There was no hedge from Irsay, who made it clear the team wants its blindside protector back. It's unclear if Castonzo would only consider playing for Indy. With the open market this close (24 days), perhaps its call will be hard to resist. The franchise tag is an option for the Colts.1 day
64.Irsay: 'All options are on the table' at... (Rotoworld) Speaking Sunday, Colts owner Jim Irsay said "all options are on the table" at quarterback. Analysis: "I would just say all options are open," was Irsay's response when asked if the team was open to signing one of this year's many veteran free agents under center. Irsay did the best he could to boost Jacoby Brissett, saying he remained "on the rise," but stopped well short of saying he will be the team's most likely option at quarterback. "We're open minded but there's a lot of ways this thing could turn," Irsay said. Brissett was thrust into the C... (More)1 day
65.Roethlisberger 2-3 months from full clea... (Rotoworld) Ben Roethlisberger (elbow surgery) estimates he is 2-3 months from "full clearance." Analysis: Roethlisberger threw Saturday for the first time since going under the knife in September. 2-3 months would have him ready well in advance of training camp. Although he's just eight days shy of his 38th birthday with a lengthy injury history, Roethlisberger's missed games with injury last season were his first since 2016. The Steelers' offense was an abject disaster without him. Perhaps an heir apparent will be drafted, but this is Big Ben's team for the foreseeable future as long as ... (More)1 day
66.49ers | Elijah Lee may not receive offer (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent LB Elijah Lee probably will not receive a tender offer this season but the team may look to sign him to a minimum level contract, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. 1 day
67.Devin McCourty candidate to be tagged (Rotoworld) The Boston Herald considers free agent Devin McCourty a candidate for the franchise tag. Analysis: McCourty didn't show any dropoff in 2019, tying the second most interceptions of his career (5) and grading out near the top of PFF's safety ratings. The Patriots' captain and defensive play-caller, bringing back McCourty should be an easy decision but nothing is a lock when it comes to veteran free agents and Bill Belichick. McCourty would cost $11.5 million if he's franchised.1 day
68.Colts | Indy keeping options open at QB (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett is a player on the rise, but the Colts will consider all options at quarterback this offseason, according to owner Jim Irsay. Analysis: The Colts have been linked to Philip Rivers this offseason, but the team can consider several options if they do not want Brissett to be the starter in 2020. The Colts have a solid group of pass catchers, so their starter could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues depending on the player.1 day
69.Titans | Marcus Mariota not expected back (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Marcus Mariota likely will not re-sign with the Titans this offseason, in the opinion of TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt. 1 day
70.Jaron Brown not expected back in Seattle (Rotoworld) Free agent Jaron Brown isn't expected to re-sign with the Seahawks. Analysis: Brown opened last year as the No. 3 receiver behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but he faded in the second half, finishing with 28 targets. The Seahawks should upgrade on Brown either through the draft or free agency. Seattle also likes Malik Turner as a potential in-house fallback for Brown.1 day
71.Saints likely to bring back DT David Ony... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Mike Triplett reports the Saints are prioritizing an extension for free agent DT David Onyemata. Analysis: Onyemata had a breakout year in his first full season as a starter, forcing Sheldon Rankins into a sub-package role when Rankins returned in Week 4. He's quietly played over 50 percent of snaps the past three years. Onyemata is the anchor of a Saints run defense that was one of the best in the league in 2019. Even with solid depth behind Onyemata, it'd be surprising if the Saints didn't bring him back.1 day
72.Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger a few months away (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) said he has been cleared to start throwing a football but is still about two and a half to three months away from receiving full clearance. Analysis: Roethlisberger probably will not do much during offseason workouts but appears to have a good chance to be ready for training camp. He has posted very good numbers over the last several seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is healthy. 1 day
73.Ravens in talks to re-sign Jihad Ward (Rotoworld) The Ravens are in talks to re-sign free agent DE Jihad Ward. Analysis: Ward played just under 40 percent of snaps in 11 games after coming over from the Colts. The Ravens like his fit as a hybrid end/linebacker and want to bring him back. Re-signing Ward shouldn't take much guaranteed money.1 day
74.Browns | Cleveland may look at two MIN players (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent DE Everson Griffen and S Anthony Harris likely will receive interest from the Cleveland Browns if they hit the free-agent market, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. 1 day
75.Austin Blythe expected to test free agen... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Lindsey Thiry reports the Rams aren't expected to re-sign free agent RG Austin Blythe. Analysis: Blythe will test the open market after starting at multiple spots the last two years. The Rams can't afford to keep Blythe with LT Andrew Whitworth also a free agent. David Edwards and Austin Corbett are in-house options to replace Blythe. 1 day
76.Ravens expected to franchise LB Matt Jud... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jamison Hensley confirms the Ravens are expected to franchise tag LB Matt Judon. Analysis: That's how things have been trending with not much progress in long-term talks. Judon is coming off career highs in 2019, leading the Ravens in sacks (9.5) and forced fumbles (4) while grading out as PFF's No. 14 outside linebacker. There are rumblings Baltimore could trade Judon, but he's not going to reach free agency. Judon would make $16.27 million under the tag.1 day
77.Bills | Jordan Phillips expected to test market (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills impending free-agent DT Jordan Phillips plans to test the free-agent market this offseason. 1 day
78.Justin Reid (shoulder) recovery 'going w... (Rotoworld) Texans S Justin Reid (shoulder) said his recovery is "going well." Analysis: Reid shed his sling earlier this week. He's just over a month removed from surgery to repair a torn labrum — something he played with throughout 2019. Reid seems likely to miss OTAs but is targeting a training camp return.1 day
79.Eagles | Alshon Jeffery's agent denies report he wants out (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, the agent for Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery refuted a claim that his client would welcome a trade to another team. In a Twitter post Friday, Feb. 21, agent Tory Dandy wrote that Jeffery 'loves being in the city of Philly and playing for the Eagles.' Analysis: The 30-year-old Jeffery is coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign where he only had 43 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, marking his worst statistical performance since his rookie season in 2012. He is also in the middle of a nine-month recovery period from Lisfranc surgery last December, so his trade value couldn't... (More)1 day
80.Franchise tag deadline is delayed by 2 d... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the NFL has delayed the franchise and transition tag deadline by two days. Analysis: Teams can place their tags between February 27 and March 12 now, which slightly helps teams navigate the salary cap with the CBA discussions being a big priority at the moment. ESPN's Adam Schefter also reports that teams will be able to use a franchise and transition tag this season, pending a new CBA agreement. Dak Prescott and Jameis Winston are two players who could potentially be tagged depending on how the next few weeks go.1 day
81.49ers | George Kitle to reset market? (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's next contract will likely make him the first tight end to earn more than $13 million per year and have more than $30 million in guarantees, according to former NFL agent Joel Corry.1 day
82.Dynasty | Danny Amendola re-signs with the Lions (Dynasty League Football) The Detroit Lions have re-signed wide receiver Danny Amendola to a one-year deal. Analysis: Amendola was solid, though far from spectacular in his lone season in the Motor City last year. While his 62 catches and 678 yards were the second most of his career, it's tough to see Amendola moving the needle much in dynasty leagues. At this point, he looks like a bit of a roster clogger as the team's third or fourth option behind Marvin Jones, Kenny Golladay and possible TJ Hockenson.1 day
83.Dynasty | Josh Doctson signs with the Jets (Dynasty League Football) The New York Jets have signed wide receiver Josh Doctson. Analysis: The former first round pick never reached his potential with the Redskins and will now attempt to resurrect his career with the Jets after a failed stint in Minnesota last season. Doctson's career totals of 81 catches for 1,100 yards and eight scores don't move the needle much, but he's a nice shot in the dark for a team desperate for playmakers. This move likely means the Jets could be moving on from both Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa.1 day
84.Falcons | Big money for Austin Hooper? (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent TE Austin Hooper's new contract will likely be in the range of $44 million over four years with $26.5 million guaranteed, in the opinion of former NFL agent Joel Corry. Analysis: Despite being hobbled in the second of the season with an MCL strain, Hooper still managed to deliver a career year in 2019. He's topped 70 receptions in each of the past two seasons, and while he may no be back with the Falcons in 2020, Hooper should remain in the TE1 mix wherever he suits up.1 day
85.Packers sign Mason Crosby to 3-year exte... (Rotoworld) Packers signed K Mason Crosby to a three-year, $12.9 extension. Analysis: Crosby will be wrapping up his age-38 season when this extension runs it's course. The veteran kicker had a bounce-back season in 2019 after two-straight iffy years in 2017 and 2018. Over his last three seasons, Crosby has made 84% of his field goals and 96% of his extra points.2 days
86.Mason Crosby: Signs three-year deal with Packers (RotoWire) Crosby signed a three-year contract with the Packers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The Packers locked up their long-time kicker before he entered free agency, bringing back Crosby on a three-year deal. Last year, his 13th season with the franchise, Crosby connected on 92 percent of his field goals, easily the best mark in his career, while also nailing 40 of 41 extra-point attempts.2 days
87.Ben Roethlisberger: Spotted throwing (RotoWire) Roethlisberger (elbow) was shown lofting passes in a performance center Saturday. Analysis: The Roethlisberger recovery tour continued Saturday, with the Steelers teasing a five-second video showcasing the veteran quarterback attempting passes in the performance center. Both head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert have expressed certainty in Roethlisberger's status for the 2020 season in recent days, although the exact rehab timeline remains unknown. The 37-year-old underwent surgery on his throwing elbow Sept. 23.2 days
88.Bears | Devante Bond re-ups (thehuddle) Chicago Bears LB Devante Bond was re-signed to a one-year contract Saturday, Feb. 22. Financial terms weren't disclosed.2 days
89.PIT posts video of Big Ben (elbow) throw... (Rotoworld) The Steelers posted a video of Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) throwing a football. Analysis: Roethlisberger has a massive beard and was gingerly "throwing" this pigskin, but these are signs of life for the veteran quarterback. He appears to be making real progress after a major surgery last season. Both the Steelers' GM and head coach have expressed public optimism regarding Big Ben's Week 1 outlook. Expect Roethlisberger to inch his way towards training camp before surging up his workload right before the season starts. The Steelers should compete for a playoff spot if Roethlisber...

90.Devante Bond: Re-signs with Bears (RotoWire) Bond has re-signed with the Bears on a one-year contract ahead of the 2020 season, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Bond was suspended for four games last season after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. He ended up recording just three solo tackles in seven games with the team. He will now set his sights on earning a bigger role heading into the upcoming season.2 days
91.Packers | Mason Crosby agrees to extension (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby signed a three-year contract extension Saturday, Feb. 22. Analysis: Crosby converted 22 of 24 field-goal attempts and 40 of 41 extra points in 2019. He'll turn 36 years old in early September but will remain a top fantasy option most weeks while kicking behind the high-powered Packers offense.2 days
92.Danny Amendola: To re-sign with Lions (RotoWire) Amendola will re-sign with the Lions on a one-year deal, Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football reports. Analysis: Amendola hauled in 62 passes for 678 yards and one touchdown in 15 games for the Lions last season. The 34-year-old will be entering his 12th season in 2020 and second in Detroit. He figures to once again help out in the slot.2 days
93.Ravens make Don Martindale highest paid ... (Rotoworld) Ravens signed DC Don Martindale to a three-year extension. Analysis: Martindale's new contract will make him the highest paid defensive coordinator in the league. After the Marcus Peters trade, Martindale's defense was amongst the best in the AFC, which led to a 14-2 regular season record. The Ravens have to be worried that Martindale could bolt for a head coaching gig in upcoming seasons, so making him the highest paid defensive coordinator was necessary to keep him in the building.2 days
94.Danny Amendola re-signs on one-year deal (Rotoworld) Lions re-signed WR Danny Amendola to a one-year contract. Analysis: The was expected after a rebound year that saw Amendola finish just short of career highs. Amendola will remain locked in the slot behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, but his targets are going to take a hit with a healthy T.J. Hockenson returning in 2020. With Amendola signed, the Lions can turn their attention to extending Golladay.2 days
95.Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger starts throwing (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) was throwing a football indoors in a video shared by the team Saturday, Feb. 22. Analysis: It was previously reported Roethlisberger is on track to return in time for Week 1, and this is certainly a positive development. He's unlikely to take much contact this offseason or in the preseason, as he's eased back into action for the regular season. He'll be a mid-tier QB1 if there are no setbacks.2 days
96.Jordan Phillips expected to test free ag... (Rotoworld) The Bills aren't expected to re-sign free agent DT Jordan Phillips. Analysis: Phillips will test the open market coming off a career year. There should be no shortage of interest in the 27-year-old after exploding for 9.5 sacks in 2019. With Phillips unlikely to be back in Buffalo, Ed Oliver will step into an every-down role.2 days
97.Josh Doctson signs with New York Jets (FantasyPros) The Jets have signed wide receiver Josh Doctson. Analysis: Docston, a former first round pick, spent most of the 2019 season with the Vikings. However, he played in one game and didn't catch any passes. He'll be receiver depth for the Jets in 2020.2 days
98.Jets take flyer on WR Josh Doctson (Rotoworld) Jets signed WR Josh Doctson. Analysis: Doctson was cut by the Redskins last August and spent part of 2019 on the Vikings' practice squad. He's a low-risk flyer for the Jets, who aren't expected to re-sign Robby Anderson and could move on from Quincy Enunwa. Doctson should stick around for the offseason but he's a long shot to make it past final cuts.2 days
99.Josh Doctson: Signs with Jets (RotoWire) Doctson has agreed to a deal with the Jets. Analysis: Doctson, a first-round pick in 2016, was waived by both the Redskins and Vikings in 2020. He only played seven offensive snaps in Minnesota due to a nagging hamstring injury. He will now look to make an impression with the Jets during the offseason and earn a role catching passes from Sam Darnold.2 days
100.Kendrick Bourne could get second-round t... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports the 49ers may use a second-round tender on restricted free agent Kendrick Bourne. Analysis: Bourne went undrafted in 2017, so the 49ers wouldn't get any compensation if they gave him an original round tender. It would be more cost-effective for San Francisco to sign Bourne to a long-term deal that lowers his cap hit. Bourne would make $3.3 million on a second-round tender.2 days
