1.Foyesade Oluokun: Slated to start in 2020 (RotoWire) Coach Dan Quinn stated that Oluokun is expected to take over as a starting outside linebacker for the Falcons during 2020, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Analysis: Given that De'Vondre Campbell signed with Arizona during March's free agency period, Atlanta now finds itself in search of a new leading tackler. Third-year man Oluokun is up to the task, according to Quinn. "I know that he is," Quinn said Wednesday. "We saw that as a rookie where he stepped up and made some plays and had to start a number of games when Deion (Jones) was injured." Oluokun had a surprisingly productive rookie campaign upon ...

2.John Cominsky: More playing time coming in 2020 (RotoWire) Coach Dan Quinn expects Cominsky's defensive role to increase during the upcoming season, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Analysis: The Falcons were able to secure Dante Fowler to a three-year deal during free agency, but the team is dealing with a flurry of departures elsewhere along the defensive line. Between Vic Beasley, Adrian Clayborn and Jack Crawford -- each who left to join other teams in March -- Atlanta must replace 1,656 defensive snaps. The 24-year-old Cominsky collected 11 tackles, two pass deflections and half a sack across 10 appearances during his rookie year, but he'll likely see an ... (More)8 hours
3.Bills | Devin Singletary could be featured in 2020? (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary 'could be the workload guy if we want him to do it,' general manager Brandon being told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio on Wednesday, April 8. Analysis: Fantasy owners are going to have to wait two-plus weeks before they can truly feel good about boarding his hype train, as this year's draft is well-stocked at the running back position. Either way, Singletary's job security should be strong regardless of whether or not Buffalo adds a back on Day 1 or Day 2. As things stand now, Singletary should be viewed as a high-upside RB2.8 hours
4.DeAndre Washington: Signs up with Chiefs (RotoWire) The Chiefs and Washington agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports. Analysis: In four seasons with the Raiders, Washington found it difficult to hold down a regular role, averaging 14.7 offensive snaps per game in 55 appearances. Overall, he averaged 4.0 yards per carry while hauling in 88 of 110 targets (80 percent), so he may be able to vie for reps on passing downs. First, though, he'll have to contend for reps with Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams (hamstring) behind starting running back Damien Williams.8 hours
5.Cardinals | Arizona want to feel good about three RBs (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals RBs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds have head coach Kliff Kingsbury 'really excited' about the first two spots on the depth chart, but Kingsbury told a group of reporters in a videoconference on Tuesday, April 7, that he'd like to have three running backs 'that we feel like we could roll through and not lose much.' Analysis: While this could be an indication Kingsbury wants to use a three-man committee, it's more than likely a realization that he wants to be deep at a position that was ravaged by injuries in 2019. Drake did more than enough after arriving via trade at midseason to warrant at least 15 touches per wee... (More)8 hours
6.Ufomba Kamalu: Cut by Baltimore (RotoWire) Kamalu was released by the Ravens on Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The 27-year-old was first released by the Ravens in November but rejoined the team in January, and he's now headed back to free agency. Kamalu didn't see game action last season and last appeared in two games for the Patriots in 2018.8 hours
7.DeAndre Washington signs one-year deal with the Chiefs (FantasyPros) DeAndre Washington Is signing a one-year deal with the Chiefs. Analysis: Washington logged 108 carries for 387 yards and three touchdowns to go along with 36 receptions for 291 yards across 16 games for the Raiders in 2019. He will compete with Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson for backup duties behind starter Damien Williams. Washington proved he can handle a full workload after rushing for 77 yards on 17 carries and catching eight passes for 55 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Broncos. His fantasy value would sky rocket if he is able to win the Chiefs' start... (More)9 hours
8.Aldrick Rosas signs second-round restricted free agent tender w/ Giants (FantasyPros) Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas has signed his second-round restricted free agent tender and will make close to $3.3M in 2020. Analysis: Rosas only made 12 of his 17 attempted field goals in 2019, in what was a dismal year for the Giants offense. The Giants offense, with a full year of QB Daniel Jones, should hopefully see a drastic improvement from last season, subsequently boosting Rosas' production and value. Hopefully we see the 2018 version of him, where he went a ridiculous 32 of 33 on field goal attempts.9 hours
9.A.J. Green: Deemed healthy (RotoWire) Coach Zac Taylor said Green (ankle) is healthy and has been working out in Atlanta, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Green had already been planning to work out on his own this spring, as he said he wouldn't participate in the Bengals' offseason program on a franchise tag, per Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic. Green also suggested he might miss part of training camp if he doesn't get a multi-year contract before the July 15 deadline, but he did say he'll be ready to play in the regular season. The veteran wideout dealt with a few setbacks after ankle surgery in late July, ultimately missing the entire 2019 season. He now seems t... (More)10 hours
10.Chiefs sign RB DeAndre Washington (FFToday) The Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with RB DeAndre Washington, a source tells me. Analysis: Washington will slide into a backup role behind Damien Williams but this move gives a little boost to Washington's value as he moves to one of the best offenses in the league. Williams, Washington and Darwin Thompson. This move could indicate that Darrel Williams is on the outs in KC.10 hours
11.A.J. Green ‘fully healthy and working hard’ (FantasyPros) After missing the 2019 season due to an ankle injury, Bengals WR A.J. Green is "fully healthy and working hard" according to head coach Zac Taylor. Analysis: Taylor mentioned, "Everything's been positive with A.J" coming off the ankle injury that forced him to miss the entire 2019 campaign. Green should be in for a bounce-back year if he can stay healthy given the most likely addition of LSU QB Joe Burrow come April 23. He's currently listed as WR26 in FantasyPros consensus rankings.10 hours
12.Vikings | Dre Kirkpatrick may be option (thehuddle) Free-agent CB Dre Kirkpatrick (Bengals) has received some interest from the Minnesota Vikings. 10 hours
13.Bengals | A.J. Green healthy (thehuddle) Cincinnati Bengals franchise free-agent WR A.J. Green (ankle) has completely recovered from his ankle injury and is working out in Atlanta, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Analysis: Green has only played nine games over the last two seasons, but he appears to be on track for the 2020 season. He is a risky option because of his injury history but can be a weekly starting option in all leagues if he is healthy. 11 hours
14.Chiefs | KC adding DeAndre Washington (thehuddle) Free-agent RB DeAndre Washington (Raiders) agreed to terms on one-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, April 8, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed. 12 hours
15.Titans | Tennessee officially adds Jack Crawford (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, free-agent DE Jack Crawford (Falcons) officially signed with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, April 8. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed. 12 hours
16.Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson's deal official (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Demarcus Robinson (Chiefs) officially re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, April 8. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed. 12 hours
17.Jaguars | Al Woods officially signed (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, free-agent DT Al Woods (Seahawks) officially signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, April 8. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed. 12 hours
18.Giants | Aldrick Rosas signs tender (thehuddle) New York Giants restricted free-agent PK Aldrick Rosas signed his one-year tender offer Wednesday, April 8. Financial terms were not disclosed. 12 hours
19.Lions | Darryl Roberts officially with Lions (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, free-agent CB Darryl Roberts (Jets) officially signed with the Detroit Lions Wednesday, April 8. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed. 12 hours
20.Nyheim Hines could get 'plenty more action' on offense this season (FantasyPros) Zak Keefer of The Athletic writes Nyheim Hines could see "plenty more action" on offense this season. Analysis: Hines played on just 31.5% of the snaps last year as the Colts were extremely conservative with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. That figures to change now that Philip Rivers is in town. It's worth noting that Rivers consistently peppered Austin Ekeler with targets out of the backfield. Hines is therefore a name to remember in PPR formats come draft season.12 hours
21.Desmond King could be traded by Chargers? (FantasyPros) Daniel Popper of The Athletic writes "there's a chance" that the Chargers could trade cornerback Desmond King. Analysis: King was All-Pro as a slot corner in 2018 before regressing last season. The Chargers also signed Chris Harris in free agency this off-season, which bumps King from a starting role. Perhaps the 25-year-old will be used as part of a draft day trade. King is set to enter the final year of his rookie contract.12 hours
22.Justin Jackson: Chargers reportedly still very high on third-year RB (FantasyPros) Daniel Popper of The Athletic writes that the Chargers are still very high on third-year running back Justin Jackson. Analysis: Popper reports the Chargers like the "one-two punch" of Austin Ekeler and Jackson, with Jackson taking on a reduced version of "the Melvin Gordon role". Ekeler is quite clearly still the running back to own here for fantasy purposes, but Jackson figures to eat into his workload somewhat. If Jackson sees some goal-line touches as well than he could wind up with FLEX appeal at times next season.12 hours
23.Yannick Ngakoue ‘not likely’ to be traded to Philadelphia (FantasyPros) According to Adam Schefter, the Eagles appear to be "on the outside looking in" on Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue. Analysis: Ngakoue hasn't hidden his desire to be traded by Jacksonville. He's talked wanting to play for a team with a winning culture and he's even went as far as posting cryptic pictures of Eagles legends such as Reggie White and Brian Dawkins on his Instagram Stories. But according to Schefter, it doesn't seem like Philadelphia feels the same way about Ngakoue as Ngakoue feels about the Eagles. He goes on to say that there's always a possibility with Phil...

24.DeAndre Hopkins: No worry about physical exam (RotoWire) Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said there is "no concern" about finalizing the trade involving Hopkins and David Johnson, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Analysis: Travel restrictions have prevented Hopkins and Johnson from undergoing physical exams with their new teams, which means the deal that was agreed upon three weeks ago still hasn't been processed through the league office. The Cardinals, seemingly unworried, have even taken the step of reaching out to Hopkins' representatives to discuss a new contract, with the veteran wideout entering the third season of a five-year, $81 million extension. Hopkins' dis... (More)15 hours
25.Redskins expected to select Chase Young, but haven’t ruled out a QB (FantasyPros) While the Washington Redskins are likely to select DE Chase Young from Ohio State, there's still a possibility they could throw a curveball in the Draft and select a QB with the second-overall pick. Analysis: Even if the Redskins do go off-script and select a QB (most likely Justin Herbert or Tua Tagovailoa), teams around the league don't believe Young will drop past Detroit at number three. This news could potentially throw a loop in Miami or Los Angeles' draft plans, as both teams probably expect their QB to be available with the fifth and sixth overall pick. The top of the first-round could get very interesting if Washington ... (More)15 hours
26.Drew Sample: Ticketed for expanded role (RotoWire) The Bengals expect Sample (ankle) to handle a larger role in 2020, Paul Dehner of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The 2019 second-round pick operated as the Bengals' No. 3 tight end during his rookie season, recording five catches on 108 offensive snaps in nine games before a high-ankle sprain sent him to injured reserve. He'll now have a chance to take on some of the work that previously went to Tyler Eifert, who saw 63 targets last season before signing with the Jaguars in March. C.J. Uzomah is also a candidate to handle some of those snaps and targets, and he'll likely line up as the No. 1 tight end whenever practices begin. The Be... (More)16 hours
27.Avery Williamson: Potential offseason cut (RotoWire) The Jets might consider releasing Williamson (knee) once he can pass a physical, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Signed to a three-year, $22.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason, Williamson had 120 tackles and three sacks in his first year with the Jets but then suffered an ACL tear last preseason. The timing of the injury should allow him to complete his rehab before Week 1, potentially having him join 2019 offseason pickup C.J. Mosley (groin) to give the Jets a formidable duo in the middle of their defense. On the other hand, Mosley's contract still has strong guarantees and Williamson's doesn't, so the Jets... (More)16 hours
28.Nyheim Hines: Benefits from Rivers signing (RotoWire) Hines should get more opportunities on offense this upcoming season, potentially benefiting from playing with Philip Rivers, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Hines operated in a traditional runner/receiver timeshare with Marlon Mack last season, seeing 52 carries and 58 targets while playing 31.5 percent of offensive snaps in 16 games. Those numbers were all down from the 85 carries, 81 targets and 43.9 percent snap share he handled during his 16-game rookie campaign in 2018. The Colts were fifth in run-play rate (46.4 percent) with Jacoby Brissett replacing Andrew Luck under center, but the offense should open up for mor... (More)17 hours
29.Drew Sample: Bengals expect to see 'significant jump' from second-year TE (FantasyPros) Paul Dehner of The Athletics writes that the Bengals expect to see a "significant jump" from second-year tight end Drew Sample. Analysis: Sample was considered a "blocking tight end" when he was taken 52nd overall in last year's draft. The 23-year-old wound up catching just five passes for 30 scoreless yards before landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Tyler Eifert's departure for Jacksonville has opened up some opportunity at the tight end position in Cincinnati. However, C.J. Uzomah is still considered a better pass catcher than Sample.18 hours
30.Jadeveon Clowney ‘unlikely’ to return to Seattle (FantasyPros) Per Mike Garafolo, the chances of DE Jadeveon Clowney returning to the Seahawks are "slim to none." Analysis: Garafolo also said that the Seahawks "are not actively chasing Clowney right now." It's very possible that Clowney lowered his asking price knowing that Seattle was no longer interested in services. His market seems to be very thin at the moment, but there's been whispers of both Tennessee and Cleveland being interested in the All-Pro. There could be a sleeper team out there, but with an asking price of $17-18M, it's likely limited to teams with ample cap spa... (More)18 hours
31.Yannick Ngakoue reiterates desire to be traded this off-season (FantasyPros) Speaking Tuesday, Jaguars defensive lineman Yannick Ngakoue reiterated his desire to be traded this off-season. Analysis: "Everything happens for a reason, and not everything lasts forever," Ngakoue said. "Things come to an end, and it's time for me to move on to the next chapter of my career". Jacksonville is reportedly looking to secure a first-round pick in return for Ngakoue, but his public desire to be traded could make negotiations difficult. The 25-year-old is a former third-round pick from the 2016 draft.18 hours
32.Amari Cooper was pursued by Redskins 'all the way until the end' (FantasyPros) Redskins coach Ron Rivera told reporters Tuesday that the team was in on free agent Amari Cooper "all the way until the end". Analysis: It is believed that the Redskins actually offered more money than the Cowboys, but Cooper clearly prioritized familiarity and the chance to win when making his decision. Cooper, who will turn 26 this summer, posted a career-high 1,189 yards with Dallas in 2019.19 hours
33.Chargers | Austin Ekeler converts (thehuddle) Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler had an 85.2 percent catch percentage last season, which was the best rate of anyone with 45 receptions. Analysis: Ekeler had just one drop and 92 grabs for 993 yards. He rushed 132 times for 557 yards (4.2 yards per carry) as well, and with Melvin Gordon gone, he should remain one of the top five backs in PPR. 19 hours
34.Kyle Allen could have a ‘leg up’ given familiarity with coaching staff (FantasyPros) Redskins Head Coach Ron Rivera told reporters on Tuesday that newly-acquired QB Kyle Allen could have a "leg-up" on incumbent QB Dwayne Haskins given his familiarity with the coaching staff and how teams are having to operate in the current league landscape due to the coronavirus pandemic. Analysis: The Redskins sent a fifth-round pick to Carolina in exchange for Allen a few weeks ago. Allen's QB coach with the Panthers the past two seasons, Scott Turner, is now the offensive coordinator for the Redskins. Given the uncertainty that surrounds how and when the league w... (More)1 day
35.Justin Herbert to the Dolphins in newest expert’s mock draft (FantasyPros) NFL Network Analyst Daniel Jeremiah has the Miami Dolphins taking Oregon QB Justin Herbert with the 5th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Analysis: Experts have similar grades for both Herbert and Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa. The latter is thought to be the better prospect long-term, but Miami may opt for the sure thing. Dolphins scouts were able to see Herbert at the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine while Tagovailoa was nursing a variety of injuries. Given the clean bill of health and similar draft grades, Jeremiah has Miami ultimately going with Herbert with the... (More)1 day
36.Giants | Ball security a problem for Daniel Jones (thehuddle) New York Giants QB Daniel Jones committed a league-high 18 fumbles as a rookie in 2019 despite playing in only 13 games.1 day
37.Raiders | Derek Carr plagued by drops in his career (thehuddle) Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr has seen his teammates drop 216 passes over the course of his six-year career - more drops than any quarterback has witnessed over that span.1 day
38.Cowboys | Hands betrayed Michael Gallup at times (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup was charged with 11 drops in 2019 - the second-highest total in the league.1 day
39.Eagles | Miles Sanders dominant in December (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders amassed 639 yards from scrimmage over the final five games of the regular season - the sixth-best total among running backs and the best among all rookie runners over that span.1 day
40.Saints | Latavius Murray got good blocking in 2019 (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray averaged 2.7 yards before contact per rushing attempt in 2019 - tied for the sixth-best average among qualified rushers last season.1 day
41.Raiders | Darren Waller hard to tackle (thehuddle) Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller was credited with eight broken tackles on his 90 catches in 2019 - tied with George Kittle for the second-highest total among tight ends.1 day
42.49ers | George Kittle had sticky hands last season (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle was charged with only two drops on 107 targets in 2019. He was one of only five players in the league with at least 100 targets - regardless of position - to finish with a drop rate below two percent.1 day
43.Broncos | Phillip Lindsay tough to bring down in 2019 (thehuddle) Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay averaged a broken tackle once every 7.7 carries in 2019 - a dramatically higher rate than he enjoyed as a rookie in 2018 (19.2). His 29 broken tackles last season were tied with Derrick Henry and Alvin Kamara for the third-highest total in the league.1 day
44.Kurt Benkert: Back to full health (RotoWire) Benkert (toe) has received clearance to resume participating in football drills, Kelsey Kramer of Heavy.com reports. Analysis: Benkert missed the entire 2019 regular season after sustaining a significant toe injury during the Falcons' preseason opener against Denver, during which he put together a solid performance in completing 19 of 34 passes for 185 yards and a score. General manager Thomas Dimitroff said earlier in the offseason that he expects Benkert to compete with Matt Schaub and Danny Etling for the backup quarterback job in 2020, though the possibility of Atlanta drafting additional competition also can't be ruled out.1 day
45.Chase Young appears to be Redskins' target with number two pick (FantasyPros) JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington believes the Redskins will use the number two overall pick on Ohio State DE Chase Young. Analysis: Young is viewed as the top non-QB talent in this month's draft. With the Bengals all but certain to take Joe Burrow first overall, Washington could select Young as an immediate difference maker on their defensive line.1 day
46.Todd Gurley has yet to pass physical with Falcons (FantasyPros) Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff told reporters Tuesday that Todd Gurley has not yet completed his physical. Analysis: However, Dimitroff added that he is confident Gurley will pass it. He also said there is language in the contract that will protect the team. Assuming the deal becomes official soon, Gurley will be the Falcons' lead running back in 2020.1 day
47.Broncos | Von Miller best at forcing QBs (thehuddle) Denver Broncos LB Von Miller has forced 640 quarterback pressures over the past decade, which are 40 more than any other player within that time.1 day
48.Redskins | Cody Latimer deal now official (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, free-agent WR Cody Latimer (Giants) officially signed an undisclosed contract with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, April 7. Analysis: Latimer set career-highs with 24 receptions and 300 yards with the New York Giants in 2019. He has a viable path to a notable role within the Washington offense and could become a streaming option by mid-season.1 day
49.Saints | P.J. Williams officially back in Big Easy (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, free-agent DB P.J. Williams (Saints) officially signed an undisclosed contract with the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, April 7.1 day
50.Raiders | Damarious Randall settles in Las Vegas (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, free-agent DB Damarious Randall (Browns) officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders Tuesday, April 7. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.1 day

53.Cowboys | Blake Bell officially signs (thehuddle) Updating a previous story, Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Bell officially signed Tuesday, April 7. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.1 day
54.Gerald Hodges: Still eager to play (RotoWire) Hodges relayed Monday that he's still looking to play in the NFL in 2020, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Hodges announced his retirement from the NFL last April, only to do an about-face about a month later. Though he was said to be drawing significant interest around the league last summer after deciding he wanted to keep playing, Hodges ultimately remained unsigned, sitting out the entire 2019 season as a result. That apparently hasn't deterred the 29-year-old linebacker from trying to continue his playing career, though finding work may be even tougher to come by now that he's nearly a year and a half removed from being o... (More)1 day
55.Cardinals | DeAndre Hopkins deal not yet official (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins has yet to take his physical with the team, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Tuesday, April 7, he has 'no doubt' the deal will get done before the 2020 NFL Draft (April 23). Analysis: If the deal were to somehow fall through within the next two weeks, the Cardinals would be likely to target one of Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb or Henry Ruggs with their No. 8 overall pick. Of course, Hopkins would fill the Cards' need for a No. 1 receiver once the trade is finalized once and for all.1 day
56.Seahawks | Seattle out on Jadeveon Clowney? (thehuddle) Free-agent LB Jadeveon Clowney (Seahawks) isn't like to re-sign with the Seattle Seahawks, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network Tuesday, April 7. 'I don't know if he's going to be back in Seattle. The chances are slim to none,' Garafolo said.1 day
57.Jaguars | Yannick Ngakoue repeats intent to move on (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue stressed his desire to be traded again Tuesday, April 7. '(Talks on a long-term contract) kind of broke off,' he said. 'Everything happens for a reason, and not everything lasts forever. Things come to an end, and it's time for me to move on to the next chapter of my career. And I'm forever thankful for what Jacksonville has brought to me and my family, but it's time to move on.' Ngakoue added he wants to be traded to a team with a 'great culture.'1 day
58.Adam Thielen: Sad to see Diggs leave (RotoWire) Thielen was disappointed when he found out the Vikings were trading Stefon Diggs to the Bills, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Thielen said he and Diggs became close friends while playing on the same team for the past five years. On the bright side, Thielen should see plenty of targets in his age-30 season ahead, as the Vikings are left with a weak WR depth chart behind him -- Tajae Sharpe, Bisi Johnson and Chad Beebe (ankle) being the top candidates to earn snaps. The upcoming draft likely will bring some form of competition, but there's no question about Thielen serving as the go-to receiver under new... (More)1 day
59.Redskins | Washington chased Amari Cooper in free agency (thehuddle) Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera said Tuesday, April 7, the team pursued Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper in free agency. 'Amari is somebody that we chased and we chased very hard. ... We would have loved to have him.'1 day
60.Falcons | Todd Gurley still awaiting physical (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) has yet to take or pass his physical, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff Tuesday, April 7. Dimitroff said he feels good about Gurley's ability to pass the test. Analysis: Gurley received a career-low 223 carries with the Los Angeles Rams last year and his 3.8 yards per attempt was well below his career average. He still topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage and scored 14 total touchdowns, but there is real concern he isn't the game-breaker he was for the first four years of his career. He's a mid-tier RB2 heading toward the 2020 season.1 day
61.Darrell Henderson: Likely leader of committee? (RotoWire) Rams GM Les Snead envisions Henderson (ankle) operating as part of a multi-player backfield, Greg Beacham of The Associated Press reports. "What we want to be is a team that utilizes more than just one workhorse running the ball," Snead said. "We have this big-picture vision, Darrell (Henderson) being a part of it, but we do expect other pieces to be a big part of it as well." Analysis: The Rams leaned on Todd Gurley as a three-down workhorse for the better part of the past three seasons, including in 2019 when his production drastically declined. With Gurley released last month and now signed by Atlanta, the Rams are preparing for a... (More)1 day
62.Redskins | Coaches excited about Logan Thomas (thehuddle) Washington Redskins TE Logan Thomas has tight ends coach Pete Hoener excited about his smarts, savvy and athletic ability, according to head coach Ron Rivera Tuesday, April 7. Analysis: Thomas caught 16 of 28 targets for 173 yards with the Detroit Lions last season. He'll compete with Jeremy Sprinkle and Richard Rodgers for playing time and targets in 2020. Whichever one wins the starting job could be in line for a good number of red-zone targets and will be worth streaming on occasion in standard fantasy formats.1 day
63.Brandon Aiyuk underwent core-muscle surgery Tuesday (FantasyPros) Per sources, Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk underwent core-muscle surgery today. He has skyrocketed up draft boards of late, and is even being considered a potential first-round pick. Analysis: Aiyuk has apparently been dealing with the issue for a few months, and decided to get surgery now with no planned workouts on the horizon. This news shouldn't scare teams away from the talented WR, and it's looking like his name could possibly be called on the first night of the NFL Draft after Adam Caplan came out yesterday and said that Aiyuk has "no holes in his game" and "... (More)1 day
64.Kendrick Bourne has officially signed his one-year tender (FantasyPros) 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne has officially signed his one-year tender to return to San Francisco in 2020. Analysis: Bourne was picked up as an un-drafted free agent by the 49ers in 2017. In three seasons with San Francisco, he has 88 receptions and nine touchdowns. All nine TDs have come in the past two seasons. Coaches have liked what they've seen in Bourne recently, which could be one of the reasons why they were comfortable moving on from WR Emmanuel Sanders. Look for Bourne to potentially play a more prominent role in the offense in 2020, but temper expectations as... (More)1 day
65.Alshon Jeffery: Eagles tried to trade wideout last season (FantasyPros) Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer writes the Eagles tried to trade Alshon Jeffery last season. Analysis: Reportedly, the organization tried to trade Jeffery just one month after guaranteeing his 2020 salary. The 30-year-old receiver struggled with injuries and production last year before undergoing Lisfranc surgery in December. It is highly unlikely that the team finds a trading partner for him this off-season. The Eagles are expected to address the wide receiver position in this month's amateur draft.1 day
66.Eagles | Alshon Jeffery was shopped (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was actively shopped after the team guaranteed his 2020 salary last season. Jeffery found out that he was on the market and was troubled by the mixed messages he had received from the team, a source close to the receiver said. Analysis: Jeffery is now 30 and has been riddled by injuries his entire career. He hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2014, and he has very minimal upside as a WR5. 1 day

68.Nelson Agholor expected to play on the outside with Raiders (FantasyPros) Recently-signed Raiders wide receiver Nelson Agholor is expected to play on the outside (and not in the slot), based on what NFL insider Adam Caplan is hearing from his sources. Analysis: The Raiders have Tyrell Williams occupying one starting position and Hunter Renfrow in the slot, so Agholor is expected to compete with Zay Jones for the other starting spot on the outside, depending on what the Raiders do in the NFL Draft.

Analysis: "I was going to be ready for OTAs and the minicamps, said Roethlisberger. "That was going to be the plan." He underwent elbow surgery last season, but seems to be progressing well as he was throwing pain-free for the first time in years.

Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

74.Darrell Henderson: Rams want to utilize multiple backs next year (FantasyPros) Rams GM Les Snead told reporters the team wants to utilize more than one workhorse when it comes to their running philosophy this season. Analysis: "What we do want to be is a team that utilizes more than one workhorse moving the ball, with different skill sets" were Snead's exact words. Many fantasy analysts are pegging Darrell Henderson for a major role following the team's release of Todd Gurley. These comments from Snead throw water on the Henderson hype train, however. Still, even functioning as the Rams' lead back (not necessarily a workhorse role) would be big... (More)2 days
75.Rams | LA Rams likely eyeing committee backfield (thehuddle) Los Angeles Rams RBs Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson may end up sharing snaps in 2020, based on comments made by general manager Les Snead on Monday, April 6. 'What we do want to be is a team that utilizes more than one workhorse moving the ball, with different skill sets.' Analysis: It probably goes without saying this presumes the Rams don't take a running back in the first two days of the draft. Snead somewhat contradicted himself in his statement as well since using more than one workhorse means the team won't have one player it considers the workhorse. It's a reasonable assumption at this point that Brown will handle the ma... (More)2 days

Analysis: Hurney's exact words were "obviously we've had internal discussions. Everybody knows what we think of Christian as a player". McCaffrey's rookie contract is up after the 2020 season but Carolina is obviously going to pick up the fifth-year option for 2021. We all learned from the Rams' handling of Todd Gurley that it can be risky extending a running back before you have to, but CMC appears to come with less ques... (More)2 days

"I was going to be ready to go for OTAs and the minicamps," Roethlisberger said Monday. "That was going to be the plan." Analysis: Roethlisberger has displayed modest progress in his recovery from September surgery to reattach three ligaments in his throwing elbow, lofting passes in late February and throwing pain-free by the end of March.

89.Dynasty | Matt Breida not a lock (Dynasty League Football) San Francisco running back Matt Breida is not a certainty to remain on the roster Analysis: Breida was tendered at the second-round level as a restricted free agent but that won't stop the team from trading him if they receive any sort of agreeable compensation in return.

Analysis: Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak relies on his tight ends, averaging 23% of targets on average each season over his history.
