1.Teddy Bridgewater: Looking at strong market (RotoWire) Bridgewater is expected to have a strong market for his services as an unrestricted free agent this spring, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: With Drew Brees likely coming back for another season and Taysom Hill still under contract, Bridgewater figures to leave New Orleans for a shot at a starting job. He won each of his five starts in 2019, completing 69.7 percent of passes for 7.3 yards per attempt in those games, with just nine sacks, two interceptions and no fumbles. The one negative for Bridgewater is a crowded market for free-agent QBs, including Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and Jameis Winston.3 minutes
2.Ryan Succop: Candidate for release (RotoWire) Succop may be cut this offseason, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Succop signed a five-year, $20 million contract in March 2018, making him one of the highest-paid kickers in the NFL. He was impressive during the first season of his deal, but knee injuries limited him to six games in 2019, when he made just one of six field-goal attempts before landing on IR. The Titans can clear out $2 million in cap space by releasing the 33-year-old kicker.11 minutes
3.Dynasty | Dion Lewis likely to be cut (Dynasty League Football) Titans running back Dion Lewis will likely be cut Analysis: This should be a surprise to no one as the Titans are somewhat cap strapped given their need to resign surging Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. The Titans can save $4M against the cap through Lewis' release. In two years with the Titans, the 29 year old tallied only 716 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He did most of his damage as a receiver with 84 receptions, 564 yards and two touchdowns though it's not enough to make him anything other than expendable. Turning 3... (More)14 minutes
4.Ben Roethlisberger: Expected back for Week 1 (RotoWire) Head coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that he has "no hesitation" that Roethlisberger (elbow) will be ready for the 2020 regular-season opener, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Tomlin echoed the sentiment shared by GM Kevin Colbert last Thursday, despite the long recovery underway by Roethlisberger following season-ending elbow surgery. Roethlisberger played just six quarters in 2019, and with Mason Rudolph, Devlin Hodges and Paxton Lynch the only current options besides Roethlisberger, the Steelers need Tomlin and Colbert to be right if they are to reach the playoffs for the first time in three seasons.1 hour
5.DET continuing trade talks for CB Darius... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions have spoken with multiple teams about a potential trade for CB Darius Slay. Analysis: Schefter added that, "Any team that trades for Slay would have to compensate Detroit and Slay with a new deal. Other teams believe Slay will be traded this off-season, but Lions adamant on value." Slay has been vocal about receiving a large contract extension, implying that he wants to be the highest-paid CB in the league as recently as early February. It wouldn't be surprising to see Slay (again) no-show for voluntary OTAs this offseason if the Lions ca... (More)3 hours
6.Redskins | Jordan Reed still in protocol (thehuddle) Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Analysis: Reed likely will be released this offseason and his future in the NFL is uncertain because of his injury history. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation but should not count on him as a starting option next season.3 hours
7.TJ Carrie: Cut loose by Browns (RotoWire) The Browns released Carrie on Monday. Analysis: Carrie signed a four-year, $31 million deal with the Browns in March of 2018, but he ceded starting duties to Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams in 2019. The 29-year-old still played plenty due to injuries to the two starters, but he struggled in coverage, allowing 8.7 yards per target and a 68.3 completion percentage. Cutting Carrie loose will free up $6.35 million and $7.75 million against the salary cap over the next two seasons, respectively. He'll be free to sign with another team immediately.3 hours
8.Demetrius Harris: Cut by Cleveland (RotoWire) The Browns cut Harris on Monday, the team's official website reports. Analysis: Harris signed a two-year, $6 million contract last offseason, coming over from Kansas City after five seasons in a depth role behind Travis Kelce. The 28-year-old played 55.6 percent of offensive snaps for the Browns in 2019, but he was limited to a 15-149-3 receiving line on 27 targets, dropping five passes along the way. Harris may need to battle for a roster spot with his next team, while the Browns are left with David Njoku, Ricky Seals-Jones (RFA), Stephen Carlson and Pharaoh Brown (ERFA) at tight end.3 hours
9.Browns release OL Eric Kush, three other... (Rotoworld) Browns released OG Eric Kush.4 hours
10.Browns release CB T.J. Carrie, three oth... (Rotoworld) Browns released CB T.J. Carrie.4 hours
11.Browns release TE Demetrius Harris, 3 ot... (Rotoworld) Browns released TE Demetrius Harris. Analysis: The team also terminated the contracts of CB T.J. Carrie, OG Eric Kush, and LB Adarius Taylor. Starting TE David Njoku spent most of the year on injured reserve, but Harris still (surprisingly) took a backseat to Ricky Seals-Jones4 hours
12.Bielema interviewing for Colorado's top ... (Rotoworld) Giants OLBs coach Bret Bielema will interview for the University of Colorado's head-coaching vacancy. Analysis: He spent last year as the Patriots' DL coach before joining Joe Judge's staff in New York last month. The top job in Colorado became available last week when Mel Tucker accepted the head-coaching position at Michigan State. Bielema boasts 12 years of head-coaching experience at the college level including stints with Arkansas and Wisconsin. The Buffaloes are also said to be pursuing Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy, though it's unclear if the long-time Andy Reid assistant would entertain that possibility.4 hours
13.Adarius Taylor: Let go by Browns (RotoWire) The Browns released Taylor on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Analysis: The Browns will save nearly $2.5 million against the salary cap in 2020, and Taylor will be immediately available to sign with a new team. The 29-year-old linebacker played just 54 defensive snaps in 2019, but he did contribute on special teams. He'll likely seek a similar role with another franchise.4 hours
14.Browns move on from LB Adarius Taylor (Rotoworld) Browns released LB Adarius Taylor. Analysis: Taylor added very little to the Browns in 2019, seeing the field on just 58 defensive snaps while mostly functioning in a special teams capacity. Wherever he lands next will be the 29-year-old's third team in as many seasons.4 hours
15.Ryan Shazier: Still hoping to play again (RotoWire) Shazier (spine) still hopes to resume his football career at some point, but there hasn't been any indication that it will happen in 2020, Joe Rutter of The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Analysis: Shazier suffered a severe spinal injury in December 2017 and wasn't able to walk until April 2018. He spent the past two seasons under contract with the Steelers, staying on the reserve/PUP list. Shazier's contract is expected to expire this offseason, but the Steelers may decide to re-sign him for the veteran's minimum of $820,000. His role with the team last season included mentoring rookie linebacker Devin Bush, the 10th overall pic... (More)4 hours
16.Tomlin expects Big Ben to be ready for W... (Rotoworld) Speaking Monday morning on ESPN's First Take, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed he expects Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) to be ready for Week 1. Analysis: "I have no hesitation," said Tomlin, who also addressed Myles Garrett's assertion that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur in their altercation last year. "This guy is the ultimate competitor. He dropped the gauntlet down. He made the statement he's coming back." Roethlisberger was lost to season-ending elbow surgery early in the 2019 campaign and still isn't "doing anything," according to Tomlin, though the ... (More)4 hours
17.Jordan Reed still in concussion protocol (Rotoworld) Redskins coach Ron Rivera confirms Jordan Reed remains in the league's concussion protocol. Analysis: He's still recovering from a concussion suffered six months ago in a preseason game in Atlanta. Reed resumed practicing three weeks after his initial diagnosis but a recurrence of symptoms landed him on injured reserve about a month later. Washington hosted Panthers castoff Greg Olsen for a visit last week, suggesting the team is finally ready to move on from Reed, who has been concussed on at least seven occasions since debuting in 2013. The 29-year-old's release would free up $8.5 mil... (More)5 hours
18.Steelers | Pittsburgh not interested in Antonio Brown (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is not an option for the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Analysis: Brown is expected to meet with teams at the NFL Scouting Combine, but his playing status is still in question. He likely will serve a suspension once he signs with a team and would be a risky fantasy option.5 hours
19.Jets feel Le'Veon Bell put on weight in ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Rich Cimini sees an offseason trade of Le'Veon Bell as only a "remote" possibility for the Jets. Analysis: Despite coach Adam Gase's open antagonism of Bell throughout his debut season in the Big Apple, Cimini doesn't see a trade coming to fruition without the Jets taking on a significant portion of his 2020 salary, which calls for a whopping $13.5 million in guarantees. Even then, Cimini wouldn't anticipate New York getting much in return for Bell (a Day 3 draft pick is probably the best they could hope for), who the Jets believe put on weight in 2019 while losing much... (More)5 hours
20.Quincy Enunwa: Possible cap casualty? (RotoWire) Enunwa's (neck) $6 million salary for 2020 becomes fully guaranteed March 22, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: This means Enunwa could be cut if he's able to pass a physical within the next month, which is far from a sure thing. His salary already is guaranteed for injury, so the Jets have no incentive to release him unless he's healthy. GM Joe Douglas said he's optimistic about Enunwa returning for 2020, though multiple reports suggest the wide receiver's neck injury is a career-threatening one. He missed the entire 2017 campaign due to a bulging disc in his neck, and the latest injury placed him on IR after Week 1 of 2019... (More)5 hours
21.Josh Bellamy: Likely cap casualty (RotoWire) Bellamy (shoulder) likely will be released this offseason, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The Jets can save $2.3 million without absorbing any dead cap charge. Bellamy played 124 snaps on special teams and 63 on offense in 2019, appearing in seven games before a shoulder injury sent him to IR. He went over 200 receiving yards each year from 2015 to 2017 with the Bears, but his 82 NFL games haven't yielded even a single 100-yard performance.6 hours
22.Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger expected for Week 1 (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) should be ready for the start of the 2020 regular season, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Analysis: Roethlisberger is scheduled to have his surgically repaired elbow examined later this month and also hopes to participate in some offseason workouts. He played well in 2018 and can still post solid numbers in the passing game. Roethlisberger can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season if he is healthy. 6 hours
23.Jameis Winston's future with Buccaneers unknown (FantasyPros) The Buccaneers have still not made a decision on whether or not they will retain QB Jameis Winston. Analysis: Head coach Bruce Arians said that team remains undecided as they will continue to review what else happens around the league before deciding on Winston's future. While Winston was one of the most prolific fantasy signal callers of 2019, he struggled with turnovers and consistency on the field which makes him not as highly regarded as a real-life quarterback. His value will ultimately be determined by his role and team in 2020.6 hours
24.Antonio Brown hopes to meet with NFL teams at Combine (FantasyPros) Antonio Brown told TMZ that he hopes to meet with NFL teams at the 2020 NFL Combine. Analysis: Brown continues to issue apologies regarding his behavior. While he could be too toxic for an NFL team to touch, he continued to show last season that he has a lot left on the field despite his off-the-field issues. It will be interesting to see if he's able to find a home in 2020, but at this point he's not someone that's more than a flier in dynasty or best ball leagues.6 hours
25.Tom Brady has had 'no movement' in contract talks with Patriots (FantasyPros) The have been "no movements" in contract talks between Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, according to ESPN. Analysis: This isn't surprising as there is still a lot of time for this to play out. There continue to be rumors that tie Brady to other teams, including the Chargers and Raiders. However, the Patriots return the odds-on favorite to retain the veteran signal caller. Brady's fantasy value will be largely impacted by the team he's playing for in 2020.6 hours
26.Ryan Shazier still without timeframe for return (FantasyPros) The Steelers continue to say that there is no timeframe on the return of Ryan Shazier. Analysis: Shazier continues to try to return to the NFL following what was thought to be a career-ending injury. While he's made great strides to regain mobility, there's no indication at this point that Shazier will be ready to return to the team in 2020.6 hours
27.Dion Lewis a candidate for offseason rel... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Turron Davenport expects the Titans to release Dion Lewis this offseason. Analysis: The Titans need all the cap space they can get with offensive cornerstones Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill both headed for free agency. Cutting Lewis, who has largely been a non-factor since joining the Titans on a four-year deal in 2018, would seem to be a no-brainer. His release would create $4 million in cap savings while leaving behind just $1.1 million in dead money. In addition to Lewis, Davenport suggested Tennessee could also move on from pricy veterans Ryan Succop, Cameron Wake and Delan... (More)6 hours
28.Justin Herbert preferred by Dolphins over Tua Tagovailoa? (FantasyPros) According to the Miami Herald, The Dolphins don't view former Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa as "a slam-dunk pick near the top the draft." Also, the team has been getting an "increasingly positive view" on former Oregon QB Justin Herbert. Analysis: The thought has been in NFL mock drafts that Tua would be taken by the Dolphins at the No. 5 pick, as Miami needs a quarterback of the future. While this could be posturing, this would seem to indicate that the Dolphins could be more interested in Herbert than Tua. This situation will continue to change as we get through the NFL Combine and pro days, but it seems like both quarterbacks sh... (More)6 hours
29.Browns | Cleveland releases three players (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE Demetrius Harris, OG Eric Kush and CB T.J. Carrie were released Monday, Feb. 17. 6 hours
30.Jordan Reed: Dealing with concussion symptoms (RotoWire) Reed remains in the concussion protocol, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Reed has a long history of head injuries, with his most recent occurring in the third week of the 2019 preseason. He returned to limited practices a few weeks later, but he didn't log any level of participation after Sept. 12 and was then placed on injured reserve a month later. The 29-year-old tight end faces an uncertain future, as he's believed to be considering retirement and could be a cap casualty for Washington even if he decides to continue his football career. Reed has suffered seven documented concussions over the past six years.6 hours
31.Joe Schobert: Hoping to re-sign (RotoWire) Schobert is optimistic about re-signing with the Browns, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Analysis: Schobert said extension negotiations broke down with the old front-office regime, but he's hopeful things will go better in discussions with new GM Andrew Berry. The 26-year-old linebacker started 49 of 61 games over the course of his rookie contract, recording triple-digit tackles and multiple sacks each of the past three years. Schobert played 99 percent of defensive snaps in 2019 while leading the team in both tackles (133 total, 89 solo) and interceptions (four).7 hours
32.Dolphins may prefer Herbert to Tua at No... (Rotoworld) Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald suggests the Dolphins may prefer Oregon's Justin Herbert to Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth overall pick in April's draft. Analysis: Most outlets have mocked Tua to the Dolphins at No. 5, though Salguero cautions not to "dismiss" the possibility of drafting Herbert in that slot. Per Salguero, Miami is "not fully sold" on Tagovailoa, citing durability concerns raised from his recent hip injury, which spelled an early end to his final season in Tuscaloosa. "Tua is a great player," owner Stephen Ross acknowledged in recent remarks. "I just worry about his... (More)7 hours
33.Browns | Adarius Taylor released (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns LB Adarius Taylor was released Monday, Feb. 17. 8 hours
34.Titans | Ryan Succop likely to be cut? (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans PK Ryan Succop is likely to be released in the offseason, in the opinion of ESPN's Turron Davenport. The move would save the team $2 million against the salary cap.8 hours
35.Titans | Dion Lewis expected to be released? (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis is expected to be released in the offseason, in the opinion of ESPN's Turron Davenport. The move would save the team $4 million against the salary cap. Analysis: Lewis can still be worthwhile in PPR, but he's not going to receive the touches in Tennessee to do it. He's someone to watch this offseason to see if he can land a bigger split to be an RB4 or RB5. 8 hours
36.Colts | T.Y. Hilton needs a running mate (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton needs more depth behind him at the receiver position, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'Do we need to add more explosive elements to our offense? Yeah, we do,' Ballard said. 'Just want somebody who can catch the ball and go score.'19 hours
37.Bears | Chicago giving up on Adam Shaheen? (thehuddle) Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen will be on the roster for the start of training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace, but expectations for Shaheen are 'low' for 2020, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com.21 hours
38.Cowboys | Dallas to part with Tavon Austin? (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Tavon Austin is unlikely to be re-signed, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com.21 hours
39.Jaguars | Austin Hooper a fit in Jacksonville? (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent TE Austin Hooper could be a target for the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to John Reid of The Florida Times-Union. Analysis: The Jaguars tight ends combined for just three touchdowns in 2019. Meanwhile, Hooper has emerged as one of the steadier options at the position, topping 70 catches in each of the past two seasons and recording a career-high 787 receiving yards last year. Moving from Atlanta's offense to Jacksonville's offense would be a downgrade, but Hooper will likely be a low-end TE1 regardless of where he plays in 2020.22 hours
40.Dynasty | Jacoby Brissett could be cut (Dynasty League Football) Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett could be a cut candidate Analysis: It would be a costly move for the Colts though they have plenty of cap space if desidred. While GM Chris Ballard said "the jury's still out" on Brissett as a starter, it's hard to imagine he won't be under center when the 2020 season kicks off. That said, some big names at quarterback will/could be on the market giving the Colts options. Brissett is a locker room player and well liked by the team and management so the article appears to be far more a... (More)22 hours
41.Dynasty | Derek Carr may be traded (Dynasty League Football) The Las Vegas Raiders may trade quarterback Derek Carr Analysis: Rumors continue to spread of the Raiders' willingness to offer Tom Brady $60M over two years which certainly means Carr would not be in their plans. It would be the first big domino to fall and Carr would immediately find multiple trade suitors, Chicago being one of them. Carr threw for 4,054 yards and 21 touchdowns to only eight interceptions in 2019, good but not great touchdown production. Blame shouldn't rest solely on Carr's shoulders alone as the team'...

42.Joe Schobert Expecting Extension Talks (Rotoworld) Speaking in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, impending free agent Joe Schobert said he expects Browns GM Andrew Berry to contact him about an extension. Analysis: "[Barry] said he’d be reaching out and talk to my agent over the course of the next couple weeks," Shobert explained, who has been with Cleveland for all four of his NFL seasons. The former Pro Bowl linebacker added that he believes Barry will talk to his agent, Joe Panos, at the NFL Scouting Combine. Schobert recorded four interceptions and two sacks in 2019. The two sides seem to have a mutual interest in keepi... (More)23 hours
43.49ers | Solomon Thomas could start in 2020 (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers DT Solomon Thomas may join the starting lineup next season if the team is not able to bring back impending free-agent DE Arik Armstead, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. 1 day
44.Browns | Joe Schobert may return (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns impending free-agent LB Joe Schobert said he has talked with general manager Andrew Berry and has been told that the Browns will talk to his agent about his contract situation in the near future. Schobert is more optimistic about his chances to re-sign since he has a better relationship with Berry than he did with former general manager John Dorsey. 1 day
45.Redskins | Washington may pursue two CBs (thehuddle) Carolina Panthers impending free-agent CB James Bradberry and Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent CB Bashaud Breeland are expected to be targets for the Washington Redskins during free agency. 1 day
46.Giants | Leonard Williams meets with Richard Seymour (thehuddle) New York Giants impending free-agent DT Leonard Williams recently met with former NFL DT Richard Seymour in order to improve his play. They watched game film and also worked out together. Seymour said he believes Williams has all the tools to be a great player. 1 day
47.Patriots | No movement between NE, Tom Brady (thehuddle) New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Tom Brady has not made any progress in contract talks with the Patriots at this point. Analysis: The two sides have about a month to negotiate until Brady becomes a free agent. Several of teams will pursue Brady if he hits the free-agent market, so the Patriots may need to sign Brady in the next few weeks. He likely will be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2020. 1 day
48.Still no timetable for Shazier's return (Rotoworld) Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said there's still no timetable for Ryan Shazier's return. Analysis: "You're dealing with a young man who is trying to regain his career. We'll always support that," said Colbert. "There's no ceiling and there's no time frame on the possibility of his returning." Shazier hasn't seen the field for Pittsburgh since undergoing spinal surgery in 2017. Shazier's contract for 2018 tolled to the next season due to his injury and while owner Art Rooney hopes the two sides can work something out, it's unclear if the Steelers will continue to roster h...

49.Steelers | No timetable for Ryan Shazier (thehuddle) Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier (spine) does not have a timetable for his return, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. He is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, but the two sides are expected to discuss his contract situation. 1 day
50.Rudolph considering legal action vs. Gar... (Rotoworld) Mason Rudolph called Myles Garrett's assertion that he used a racial slur during an altercation last season a "bold-faced lie" and "1000% false." Analysis: "I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial-slur," tweeted Rudolph. "This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character." Garrett was suspended for the final six games of 2019 after bashing Rudolph over the head with his own helmet, a response he said was triggered by Rudolph's use of a racial epithet. Despite there being no audio to back up his claim, Garrett repeated... (More)1 day
51.'No movement' in Patriots' talks with Br... (Rotoworld) ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss confirms the team has had "no movement" in contract talks with impending free agent Tom Brady. Analysis: The Patriots only have a month to hammer out a deal with Brady before the legal tampering period begins on March 16. The first-time free agent has already drawn interest from the Raiders, who are reportedly prepared to offer Brady a two-year, $60-million contract to be the team's headliner upon their move to Las Vegas. Reiss still puts the Patriots' odds of retaining Brady at 80 percent, though the next month of rumors and speculation promis... (More)1 day
52.Antonio Brown plans to attend Combine (Rotoworld) Free agent Antonio Brown told TMZ he plans to attend the NFL Combine in Indianapolis later this month. Analysis: "I'm excited and looking forward to seeing them guys," said Brown, who added that he's "ready to get things back on the right page." AB has been apologetic of late, extending the olive branch to former quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, police in his hometown of Hollywood, Florida and the NFL as a whole. It may be too little too late for the seven-time Pro Bowler, who is facing felony battery and burglary charges stemming from an incident at his home last mont... (More)1 day
53.Cardinals | David Johnson could be traded (thehuddle) The Arizona Cardinals could trade RB David Johnson during the offseason if they decide to give impending free-agent RB Kenyan Drake the franchise tag or sign him to a contract extension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Analysis: Johnson's current contract includes a substantial amount of guaranteed money, which would make it nearly impossible for the Cardinals to cut him, so they are likely to wind up eating a great deal of cash in any potential trade, even if a draft pick is included. Drake should be viewed as a high-end RB2 option in next season's fantasy drafts if he returns to Arizona, with Johnson likely falling into ... (More)1 day
54.Chiefs | Bashaud Breeland open to remaining in KC (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent CB Bashaud Breeland said in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he is interested in returning to the team for the 2020 season.1 day
55.Bills | Jordan Phillips could be tagged (thehuddle) The Buffalo Bills may consider using the franchise tag to keep impending free-agent DT Jordan Phillips for another season, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.1 day
56.Dynasty | David Njoku could be traded (Dynasty League Football) Browns tight end David Njoku could be traded during the off-season Analysis: It should come as no surprise that Njoku may be on the trade block and while he's certain to have some value remaining, he hasn't come close to reaching expectation following his first round selection in 2017. Following his 2018 performance when he tallied a 56/639/4 line, Njoku struggled with injury in 2019 and managed only 41 yards and a single touchdown. There's arguably been no more frustrating and disappointing performer at the position given Njoku... (More)1 day
57.Dynasty | Robby Anderson not expected to re-sign (Dynasty League Football) Robby Anderson is not expected to re-sign with the Jets and will find his way to a new team in free agency Analysis: No surprise here and it's long been expected that Anderson will be playing with a new team shortly after free agency opens. It's a tight free agency market at wide receiver, headlined by A.J. Green, and Anderson will be in demand. The soon-to-be 27 year old deep threat has struggled with poor quarterback play throughout his career though started to find a level of production with Sam Darnold late in 2019. The right s...

58.Dynasty | Leonard Fournette future undetermined (Dynasty League Football) Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette's long term future in Jacksonville is undetermined Analysis: As a first round selected player, the Jaguars have a fifth-year option for Fournette's 2021 season. All signs point to the Jags allowing 2020 to play out before determining his fifth-year status with the club. Fournette rebounded in a big way in 2019, at least from a yardage perspective, by posting a career best 1,152 yards but only managed three touchdowns. He also amassed 76 receptions for another 522 yards but failed to score as a... (More)1 day
59.Jaguars | Leonard Fournette's option in doubt (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette may not have his fifth-year optioned exercised, according to John Reid of The Florida Times-Union. Analysis: Fournette is coming off a strong 2019 campaign, but while he stayed relatively healthy and made progress as receiver, injuries remain a concern. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Jacksonville wait and see how he holds next year up before picking up his option or talking an extension. In the meantime, Fournette should at least be a high-floor, volume-based RB2 in 2020.1 day
60.Jets | Breshad Perriman an option for NYJ? (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Breshad Perriman could be a target for the New York Jets if WR Robby Anderson doesn't return in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.1 day
61.Jets | Robby Anderson finished with Gang Green? (thehuddle) New York Jets WR Robby Anderson is 'highly unlikely' to return to the team in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. Analysis: Even if Anderson lands in a high-powered passing attack, he is unlikely to be more than a deep threat for the offense and a boom-or-bust flex option for fantasy owners.1 day
62.Jags not a lock to pick up Fournette's o... (Rotoworld) The Florida Times-Union suggests the Jaguars aren't a lock to pick up Leonard Fournette's fifth-year option. Analysis: Fournette rebounded with the best season of his career after a down 2018 clouded his status in Jacksonville. It should be an easy decision to exercise his option, but Fournette carries a $10.1 million price tag as a former top-10 pick and comes with injury risks that could guarantee his salary. With limited cap space and Fournette's spotty conditioning, it's possible the Jaguars let him play out his rookie deal before addressing his contract next offseason.2 days
63.NFL | Antonio Brown meeting with teams at combine (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) said Saturday, Feb. 15, he's 'excited and looking forward to' meeting with NFL teams at the 2020 Scouting Combine. 'I'm (going to) be out there ready to get things back on the right page,' Brown told TMZ.com. Analysis: Brown remains a longshot to be on an NFL roster for Week 1 of the 2020 season. It's obviously a situation worth monitoring, but this information does little to resurrect his fantasy value.2 days
64.Bucs yet to make decision on Winston's f... (Rotoworld) Coach Bruce Arians said the Bucs have yet to make a decision on Jameis Winston's future with the team. Analysis: "Really nothing has changed," Arians said. "You get about three days to decide. The legal tampering period. Is somebody going to get let go? What's the trade values? It's really monotonous right now because you don't have any answers." The Bucs have "legitimate interest" in Philip Rivers, who moved to Florida this offseason. They've also been linked to Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater, and Ryan Tannehill, but whether they view Rivers or any of the ot... (More)2 days
65.Patrick Peterson: Extension in the future? (RotoWire) General manager Steve Keim confirmed Friday the team had discussed Peterson's contract with his representation, noting nothing has transpired yet, but that "we'd love to see him retire as a Cardinal," Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports. Analysis: Entering the final year of his five-year, $70.5 million extension, there was some chatter Peterson could ultimately be moved after an uneven campaign which saw the star cornerback suspended six games and also limited by a calf injury. There's reason to believe Peterson's less-than-stellar performance could simply be due to rust and poor circumstance, but the Cardinals aren't exactly in a positi... (More)2 days
66.Cardinals could pursue SS Tony Jefferson (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Greg Auman considers the Bucs a landing spot for free agent SS Tony Jefferson. Analysis: Jefferson's October ACL surgery limited him to five games last year. The Ravens released him as a cap casualty, but there should be interest in Jefferson if he can show he's healthy. Jefferson has ties to Bruce Arians, who he was drafted by and played under his first four seasons. The Bucs should be aggressive in upgrading a secondary that was one of the worst in the league in 2019.2 days
67.Buccaneers | Chris Godwin among 20 best players (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin came in 20th on Pro Football Focus' ranking of the top 101 players in the league. Analysis: Godwin had a breakout elite season in 2019, catching 86-of-121 targets for 1,333 yards and nine TDs to finish as fantasy's No. 2 wideout in total points -- and that's despite missing the final two games with a hamstring injury. Godwin very likely could land a contract extension this offseason, but a follow-up finish among fantasy's elite WRs could hinge in a large degree on what happens with the Bucs' QB situation this offseason.2 days
68.Texans may bring back Vernon Hargreaves (Rotoworld) The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans haven't ruled out the possibility of re-signing free agent Vernon Hargreaves. Analysis: Hargreaves was cut to avoid a $9.6 million fifth-year option Houston was never going to pick up. He could be brought back at a lower salary after posting 21 tackles and two PBUs in six games with the Texans last year. Wherever Hargreaves ends up, he'll be a post-hype flyer.2 days
69.'Seems highly unlikely' Jets re-sign And... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "seems highly unlikely" the Jets re-sign impending free agent Robby Anderson. Analysis: League sources tell Hughes that Anderson is expected to receive $13-15 million per year on a multi-year pact, while the Jets would prefer to sign him for closer to $10 million annually. Anderson has already said he won't be giving the Jets a "hometown" discount. The soon-to-be 27-year-old (in May) is a top-three free-agent wideout, along with Amari Cooper and A.J. Green.2 days
70.John Jenkins hopes to re-sign with Dolph... (Rotoworld) Impending free agent DT John Jenkins hopes to re-sign with the Dolphins. Analysis: Jenkins made five starts and played 43 percent of snaps in a semi-regular role with Miami last year. Bringing him back would give the Dolphins some veteran leadership on their defensive line. 30-year-old Jenkins shouldn't cost much more than the veteran minimum.2 days
71.Report: Raiders to offer Brady 2 years, ... (Rotoworld) Sports reporter Larry Fitzgerald Sr. has been "told" the Raiders are prepared to offer impending free agent Tom Brady a two-year, $60 million contract. Analysis: Fitzgerald Sr. doesn't have an extensive track record of breaking news, but he's a longtime member in the sports media world, based out of Minnesota. He's not the type of person to just throw something against the wall. The Raiders have been linked to Brady multiple times since the end of the Patriots' season, with coach Jon Gruden and owner Mark Davis looking to make a splash as the team embarks on Las Vegas. Brady... (More)2 days
72.Titans | Ryan Tannehill switches agents (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill, a pending free agent, has has dropped agent Patrick Dye in favor of Brian Aryault and Todd France, according to sources. Analysis: Interesting move as Aryault and France work at CAA with Jimmy Sexton, who also represents Titans pending free agent Derrick Henry, and Aryault also is the agent of Titans general manager Jon Robinson. If all works out and Tannehill returns to the Titans, he'll be in the fantasy QB1 conversation.2 days
73.Rashaad Penny (knee) cleared for rehab w... (Rotoworld) Rashaad Penny (knee) has been cleared for rehab work. Analysis: Penny was able to use a stationary bike for the first time since undergoing knee surgery. It's a good first step, but he's still facing an uphill battle to be ready for Week 1. Penny may ultimately be a candidate for the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games.2 days
74.Ethan Westbrooks: Cut by Niners (RotoWire) The 49ers released Westbrooks on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Westbrooks was recently signed by the team Wednesday, but he was swiftly cut a few days after. Westbrooks failed to suit up in a 2019 regular-season game, while he's accumulated 79 tackles, nine sacks and a forced fumble across 67 games in his NFL career.2 days
75.Raiders | Tom Brady to receive $60M offer (thehuddle) New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, a pending free agent, will receive a two-year, $60 million offer from the Las Vegas Raiders, according to Larry Fitzgerald Sr., a long-time member of the Minnesota media. Analysis: It's definitely a different kind of offseason for the soon-to-be 43-year-old Brady, and it'll be more than intriguing to see if he lured by the big $$$ of a new team or decides to finish his career with the only franchise he's ever known. Even if he stays in New England, Brady is now a QB2 consideration for fantasy.2 days
76.Ty Johnson not guaranteed roster spot (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Chris Burke believes Ty Johnson "won't be guaranteed a roster spot" going into training camp. Analysis: Johnson never had more than a part-time role despite Kerryon Johnson missing half the season to a knee injury. He'll enter training camp behind Kerryon, Bo Scarbrough, and potentially Wes Hills. Even if Johnson keeps his spot, his handcuff value is limited.2 days
77.49ers | Kwon Alexander to make full recovery (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers LB Kwon Alexander (biceps) is expected to fully recover from surgery on his injured biceps for the 2020 season.2 days
78.Packers | Jimmy Graham hasn't produced (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham has averaged 33.8 receiving yards and caught five total touchdowns in 32 games with the team. Analysis: Graham's tenure with the Packers has to be considered a disappointment, and there is a good chance he will be cut this offseason. No matter where Graham ends up in 2020, he's unlikely to provide much help to fantasy owners. 2 days
79.Cowboys | Amari Cooper a key cog (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has averaged 8.2 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 102.3 with WR Amari Cooper on the field compared to averages of 7.0 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 89.5 with Cooper off the field. Analysis: The Cowboys still need to work out contracts with Prescott and Cooper, but both players are expected to be back, either on long-term deals or via the franchise and transition tags. Assuming the duo stays put, Prescott will enter 2020 as a midrange QB1 while Cooper will be a WR1 candidate.2 days
80.Buffalo possible landing spot for Josh N... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques suggests the Bills as a landing spot for free agent Josh Norman. Analysis: This is dot-connecting, as Norman played for Sean McDermott during their time in Carolina. The Bills are in the market for a No. 2 corner with Levi Wallace and Kevin Johnson both free agents, so Norman to Buffalo makes some sense. After a disastrous 2019, Norman should settle for a prove-it deal this offseason.2 days
81.Seahawks | Rashaad Penny making progress (thehuddle) Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was able to use a stationary bike Tuesday, Feb. 11, for the first time since undergoing knee surgery. Analysis: Penny is on track in his recovery, but it remains to be seen if he will be ready for Week 1. Even if he is healthy, he is slated to be the backup to Chris Carson. Penny could still be a fringe RB3 in Seattle's run-heavy offense, but at worst, he's a must-own handcuff. 2 days
82.Browns could shop David Njoku in offseas... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jake Trotter believes the Browns will consider trading David Njoku this offseason. Analysis: This isn't a surprise after Njoku said he wasn't sure if he'll be back with the Browns next season. Cleveland has since fired Freddie Kitchens and brought in a new front office, but it's possible they also move on from Njoku, who has never really clicked with Baker Mayfield. Coming off a lost 2019, Njoku likely wouldn't return more than a Day 3 pick.2 days
83.Cardinals likely to re-sign LT D.J. Hump... (Rotoworld) Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he's "very optimistic" about re-signing free agent LT D.J. Humphries. Analysis: Humphries had a rebound 2019, staying healthy for all 16 games and grading out positively at PFF. The Cardinals view him as a building block and don't want to let him walk as a 26-year-old free agent. Signing Humphries long term comes with risks given his extensive injury history. He's likely to command at least the $13.8 million AAV Donovan Smith got from the Bucs last offseason.2 days
84.Marqise Lee candidate for offseason rele... (Rotoworld) Jaguars.com's John Oehser believes Marqise Lee is a candidate for offseason release. Analysis: Lee lasted just three games before going on IR in another injury-marred year. He's been a massive bust since signing a four, $38 million deal in 2018. Moving on from Lee this offseason should be an easy decision. Jacksonville can save $5.25 million in cap space from Lee's release.2 days
85.49ers release DL Westbrooks one day late... (Rotoworld) 49ers released DL Ethan Westbrooks. Analysis: Westbrooks signed a one-year contract literally yesterday. Cold world. The defensive linemen has accumulated 67 games over five years and figures to be a depth option for a team in 2020.2 days
86.Vernon Hargreaves: Cut loose by Houston (RotoWire) Hargreaves was released by the Texans on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Hargreaves entered the NFL in 2016 as a No. 11 overall pick with Tampa Bay. He was never consistent in coverage and also struggled with injuries, eventually getting waived this past November. The Texans put in a waiver claim and then gave Hargreaves regular run in their injury-riddled secondary, but he didn't show nearly enough to justify the $9.9 million price tag on his fifth-year contract option for 2020. Given that he's a first-round pick and still only 24 years old, Hargreaves should draw some interest on the open market, even if it's... (More)2 days
87.Texans cut CB Vernon Hargreaves months l... (Rotoworld) Texans released CB Vernon Hargreaves. Analysis: Hargreaves was claimed by Bill O'Brien last November after he was cut by the Bucs for not being on the same page with the Tampa Bay coaching staff. The 2016 11th overall pick is likely never going to pan out, but he will be a 25-year-old flier for a team desperate for cornerback help this offseason. Releasing Hargreaves saves Houston just under $10 million against the cap.2 days
88.Buccaneers | Tampa may consider Tony Jefferson (thehuddle) Free-agent FS Tony Jefferson (Ravens) could receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if the Buccaneers look to add a veteran safety this offseason, in the opinion of The Athletic's Greg Auman. 3 days
89.Kenyan Drake could be franchise tagged by Cardinals (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cardinals are interested in keeping Kenyan Drake. Analysis: Rapoport adds that the franchise tag is an option. Drake, who is a free agent, could also wind up signing a long-term deal with Arizona. Complicating the issue is David Johnson's massive contract, which makes him impossible to cut. Ultimately if Drake winds up with the backfield to himself then he will be a very exciting fantasy asset entering 2020. Stay tuned.3 days
90.Devonta Freeman could be released by Falcons? (FantasyPros) Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap isn't "unlimited". Analysis: The Falcons have some salary cap issues this off-season and releasing Freeman would certainly open up some financial flexibility. The 27-year-old played in 14 games last year, rushing for 656 yards and scoring six touchdowns. His status will be one to monitor this off-season.3 days
91.Kwon Alexander: Gets biceps surgery (RotoWire) Alexander had surgery Friday to repair a biceps injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $54 million contract last offseason, Alexander suffered a torn pectoral in late October but made it back on the field for the playoffs. He reportedly played through a biceps injury in the Super Bowl, finishing without a tackle despite playing 70 percent of defensive snaps. Alexander will turn 26 in August and should have time to get healthy before Week 1.3 days
92.Jaguars | Three LBs could be targets for Jaguars (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans impending free-agent LB Wesley Woodyard, Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent LB Cory Littleton and Cleveland Browns impending free-agent LB Joe Schobert may be targets for the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason if they decide to look for a new middle linebacker, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's John Reid. 3 days
93.Ty Johnson: No lock for 2020 roster (RotoWire) Johnson isn't guaranteed a roster spot in advance of the 2020 season, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports. Analysis: On the surface, Johnson's 4.3 yards per carry from 2019 seems respectable for a sixth-round rookie. Take out his 40-yard scamper from Week 17, though, and that number drops to 3.8, which seems much more representative of a player who seemingly struggled as a runner on a weekly basis. In fact, it's hard to say Johnson fared well as a receiving option either considering he averaged just 4.5 yards on his 24 receptions. Add it all up and Johnson may be dependent on an impressive showing in offseason workouts -- and Detroit... (More)3 days
94.Tony Jefferson: Cut by Ravens (RotoWire) The Ravens are releasing Jefferson, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Analysis: The writing was on the wall Monday when fellow Ravens safety Chuck Clark signed a three-year extension. It was Clark who joined the starting lineup after Jefferson suffered a torn ACL in October, stepping in alongside Earl Thomas at safety. The 28-year-old Jefferson is free to sign with a new team immediately, but he may have trouble generating interest this early in the ACL rehab process. He had five consecutive seasons with 74 or more tackles prior to 2019, earning a reputation as one of the better run-stopping safeties in the NFL. Jefferson also does a n... (More)3 days
95.Kwon Alexander has offseason biceps surg... (Rotoworld) 49ers LB Kwon Alexander underwent offseason biceps surgery. Analysis: Everyone knew Alexander was playing through a surgically repaired pec this season, but he also had an undisclosed biceps surgery. The linebacker is expected to be ready for the 2020 season as the Niners look to repeat their NFC Championship run. Alexander signed a four-year, $54 million contract last offseason, but San Francisco can get out of it with relative ease after this upcoming year if he can't stay healthy.3 days
96.Chris Odom: Cut by Washington (RotoWire) Odom was released by Washington on Friday, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports. Analysis: Odom had seven tackles and two sacks in four games with Washington last season, but it apparently wasn't enough for him to stick on the offseason roster. The 25-year-old UDFA will hope for another shot at a roster spot this spring/summer.3 days
97.Kenny Ladler: Cut loose (RotoWire) Ladler was released by Washington on Friday, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports. Analysis: Ladler went undrafted back in 2014 and has played in 11 NFL games for three different teams. He played 70 snaps on defense and 21 on special teams for Washington in 2019.3 days
98.Ravens cut S Tony Jefferson for cap savi... (Rotoworld) Ravens released SS Tony Jefferson. Analysis: Jefferson was due $11.6 million in 2020, but the Ravens will instead opt to swallow his $4.1 million in dead cap by releasing him to free agency in order to create some more cap space. Jefferson will need to prove to teams that he's healthy before signing a deal this offseason because he was placed on injured reserve in October of last season with ACL and other knee ligament damage. Jefferson will be entering his age-29 season.3 days
99.Ravens OL James Hurst gets 4-game suspen... (Rotoworld) The NFL suspended Ravens OL James Hurst for four games for violating the league's PED policies. Analysis: Hurst appeared in all 16 games last season but only started twice. He's a depth option for the run-first Ravens with experience at tackle and inside at guard. He'll be eligible to play in Week 5, assuming the Ravens don't have a bye early in the season.3 days
100.Cardinals could use a franchise tag on D... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals want to keep free agent Kenyan Drake and that the franchise tag is an option. Analysis: There are a lot of moving parts in the Cardinals backfield. First, there's David Johnson and his massive contract that essentially makes him impossible to cut. Rapoport notes Arizona could trade Johnson and one of their own draft picks to get DJ off their salary cap. That would make some sense, especially if a team like the Dolphins who have a ton of cap space is interested. As for Drake, it sounds like the Cardinals will do everything they can to keep...
