1.Buccaneers | O.J. Howard ready to rebound? (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard's 'eyes should light up' at the opportunity to play with QB Tom Brady, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'You have a quarterback who throws to the tight end, go earn it and get balls thrown to you,' Arians said. Analysis: Despite playing four more games than he did in 2018, Howard finished with fewer yards and just one touchdown last year. The drop in production wasn't a surprise given the fact that Arians' system typically isn't kind to tight ends, but the arrival of Brady could change that in a big way. Howard is definitely worth grabbing as a TE1, and there is a chance he finishes as a top-... (More)9 hours
2.Buccaneers | Competition for Ronald Jones? (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones could face new competition for snaps on third down next season, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'We'd love to have a pass-catching back,' Arians said. Analysis: Jones rebounded in 2019 after a dreadful rookie campaign, tallying 1,031 yards from scrimmage and catching 31 passes. He should still handle most of the work on early downs, but if Jones isn't on the field in passing situations, it is going to limit his ceiling, especially with Tom Brady now under center. He's best viewed as a flex option for the time being.9 hours
3.Cowboys | Blake Bell headed to Dallas (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Blake Bell (Chiefs) agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys on a one-year deal worth $1.7 million with $450,000 guaranteed, according to a source. 9 hours
4.Emmanuel Ogbah: Cleared from injury (RotoWire) Ogbah (pectoral) said Thursday that he's been cleared to resume workouts, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Ogbah missed the final six games of the 2019 regular season with Kansas City due to a torn pectoral injury he suffered in Week 10. The 26-year-old has been a consistent threat in the pass rush since coming into the league in 2016, earning 18 sacks over 50 career games. Now healthy, he's one of a few offseason additions for the Dolphins in a defensive overhaul heading into 2020.9 hours
5.Bills | Receivers did Josh Allen no favors in 2019 (thehuddle) Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen had a league-high 7.2 percent of his pass attempts dropped last season.11 hours

8.Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes more comfortable in 2019 (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was hurried 54 times in 2019 - a significant drop from a league-high 121 times in 2018.12 hours
9.Dolphins | Ryan Fitzpatrick took a beating in 2019 (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was hit while passing a league-high 66 times last season - tied with New York Giants QB Daniel Jones for the most in the NFL.12 hours
10.Ravens | Run-action important to Lamar Jackson (thehuddle) Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson executed a league-high 173 run-pass option (RPO) plays in 2019 - 65 more than second-place Kyler Murray (108). Jackson also ranked third in play-action pass attempts with 163.13 hours
11.Carson Wentz: Option picked up for 2020 (RotoWire) The Eagles officially exercised Wentz's (concussion) team option for 2020 on Friday, Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports reports. Analysis: The move was merely procedural, as Wentz's 2020 salary would have risen to $31.38 million while voiding the remaining years on his extension had Philadelphia declined to exercise the option. Wentz was forced out early in the Eagles' wild-card round loss to the Seahawks on Jan. 5 with a concussion, but he cleared all five phases of the NFL's concussion protocol three days later and would have been available had Philadelphia advanced to the divisional round, per Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia.13 hours
12.Broncos | Courtland Sutton hard to bring down (thehuddle) Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton led all receivers with 12 broken tackles on receptions in 2019. Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, former Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp tied for second among receivers with nine.13 hours
13.Falcons | Todd Gurley's hands betrayed him in 2019 (thehuddle) Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley was charged with a dropped pass on a league-high 14.3 percent of his targets in 2019 as a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (12.5) and Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (11.1) were the only other qualified running backs with a drop rate of higher than nine percent.13 hours
14.Dynasty | Devin Funchess signs in Green Bay (Dynasty League Football) The Packers inked wide receiver Devin Funchess to a one-year deal valued at $2.5M. Analysis: The deal could be worth has much as $6.25M on incentives but It's a prove-it contract and was likely all Funchess would receive on the open market until he does just that, prove that he can remain healthy and productive in 2020. Turning 26 in May, Funchess is still young enough to piece together a productive career and will have one of the league's best, Aaron Rodgers, under center. If there was a situation for a receiver to reclaim his career... (More)13 hours
15.Patriots | Julian Edelman lacked sure hands last season (thehuddle) New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was charged with a league-high 13 drops in 2019 - five more than he had in 2018.13 hours
16.Jets | Le'Veon Bell got little help from line in 2019 (thehuddle) New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell averaged 1.2 yards before contact per attempt in 2019 - tied with Benny Snell for the worst mark in the league among qualified rushers last season.13 hours
17.Jaguars | O-line play hurt Leonard Fournette in 2019 (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette finished fifth in the league among qualified rushers in fewest yards before contact per attempt (1.4) in 2019. Meanwhile, his three yards after contact per attempt was good for the third-best mark in the league.13 hours
18.Ronald Darby: Staying in NFC East (RotoWire) Darby (hip) inked a one-year, $4 million deal with the Redskins on Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Darby battled injuries for the Eagles last season, suiting up in 11 games as a starter, racking up 37 tackles (34 solo), two interceptions and 11 pass breakups. The 26-year-old missed the final two games of 2019 with a hip strain, and his timetable to return remains unclear. New head coach Ron Rivera has long been a fan of Darby, so he will likely battle for the starting cornerback spot that was vacated when the team traded Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) to Seattle.13 hours
19.Dynasty | Demarcus Robinson re-signs with Kansas City (Dynasty League Football) The Chiefs have re-signed wide receiver Demarcus Robinson to a one-year deal, valued at $2.3M Analysis: Early this off-season, it was rumored the Eagles were interested in Robinson, the 25 year-old receiver who did his best Sammy Watkins impression during a week-two match-up vs. the Raiders in which he produced 172 yards and two touchdowns on six receptions, only to score two more touchdowns and not eclipse 60 yards in any game after. Still, Robinson is a trending-up player in the prime of his career within an elite offense and he could well be... (More)13 hours
20.Jaguars | O-line play hurt Leonard Fournette in 2019 (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette finished fifth in the league among qualified rushers in fewest yards before contact per attempt (1.4) in 2019. Meanwhile, his three yards after contact per attempt was good for the third-best mark in the league.13 hours
21.49ers | San Fran RBs benefited from good blocking (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers RBs Raheem Mostert (3.5) and Matt Breida (3.3) ranked first and second, respectively, in the league among running backs in average yards before contact per attempt last season.14 hours
22.Packers | Accuracy eluded Aaron Rodgers in 2019 (thehuddle) Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was charged with a 'bad throw' on a league-high 21.2 percent of his passes in 2019.14 hours
23.Geronimo Allison: Signs with rival (RotoWire) Allison agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Lions on Sunday. Analysis: Allison arrives from Green Bay, where he was used primarily in two- and three-wide sets, sporting a receiving line of 34-287-2 for the 2019 season. The Lions already have proven options such as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones (ankle) and Danny Amendola on the roster, so it appears that Allison will be battling Marvin Hall (foot) for the No. 4 receiver spot in Detroit heading into the 2020 season.14 hours
24.49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo on point last season (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was 'on target' - defined as a throw that would have hit the receiver - on 80.7 percent of his passes in 2019 - the fourth-highest mark in the league.14 hours
25.Buccaneers | Tom Brady off the mark a lot in 2019 (thehuddle) Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady was charged with 116 'bad throws' in 2019, six fewer than league leader Jameis Winston - his predecessor in Tampa Bay.14 hours
26.Cowboys | Dak Prescott plagued by drops (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was on the wrong end of an NFL-high 36 drops last season.14 hours
27.Ronald Darby signs one-year deal with the Redskins (FantasyPros) Ronald Darby is signing a one-year, $4 million contract with the Redskins. Analysis: Darby missed five games last season due to hip/lower body injuries. He totaled 37 tackles and two interceptions across 11 contests for the Eagles in 2019. Darby is expected to start at corner and improve a Redskins' secondary which was in bottom half of the league against the pass last year.14 hours
28.Geronimo Allison inks one-year deal with the Lions (FantasyPros) Geronimo Allison has agreed to a one-year, $910K deal with the Lions. Analysis: Allison hauled in 34 receptions for 287 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games for the Packers in 2019. He will slot in as the Lions third wide receiver behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. Allison is currently 101 amongst all wideouts in the expert consensus rankings. The move to the Lions does not improve his fantasy value, and he is mainly a dynasty/deep-league stash.15 hours
29.Lions add Geronimo Allison to receiving corps (FFToday) Lions agreed to terms with former Packers’ WR Geronimo Allison. Analysis: Allison's deal includes $910,000, with a $137,500 signing bonus, the maximum for the veteran-minimum deal, according to NFL Network. Allison never gained traction as a slot man in Green Bay's offense limited to just a 34-287-2 line in 15 games last season. He'll be fourth in line for targets in Detroit behind Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.15 hours
30.Rolan Milligan: Back with Colts (RotoWire) Milligan (foot) signed a one-year contract with Indianapolis on Saturday. Analysis: Milligan suited up in 11 games with the Colts in 2019 before he was placed on injured reserve following Week 15 with a foot injury. The 25-year-old played a depth role last season, logging 15 tackles (11 solo) on defense and special teams. He'll likely assume that same role for the team heading into the 2020 season.15 hours
31.Jameis Winston: Gets support from former coach (RotoWire) Winston's (thumb/knee) former coach in Tampa Bay, Bruce Arians, said Wednesday in an interview on Fox Sports Radio's "The Rich Eisen Show" that he's reached out to two teams on the quarterback's behalf, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I talked to two teams," Arians said. "I think it was just to [tell them], 'Get him on your roster' and it would be a great fit. One team was not interested and the other one was." Analysis: Winston's hopes of returning to Tampa Bay for a sixth season ended nearly two weeks ago, when it became apparent that Tom Brady was leaving New England to sign with the Buccaneers. Though he's just ... (More)15 hours
32.Jordan Howard: Moves past shoulder injury (RotoWire) Howard (shoulder) said Thursday that he's fully healthy after a shoulder stinger sidelined him for most of the second half of the 2019 season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. "I'm back to 100 percent now," Howard said. "It took a while, but I'm finally back to being 100 percent." Analysis: As a member of the Eagles last season, Howard was the team's leading rusher through its first nine games, but he logged just one snap over Philadelphia's final eight games -- including a wild-card round loss to Seattle -- while managing the injury. After being active but going unused in the playoffs, Howard admitted afterward that he hadn'... (More)16 hours
33.Redskins | Ronald Darby joining Redskins (thehuddle) Free-agent CB Ronald Darby (Eagles) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins Sunday, March 29, worth $4 million, according to a source. 17 hours
34.Lions | Geronimo Allison stays in the division, joins Lions (thehuddle) Unrestricted free-agent WR Geronimo Allison (Packers) agreed to a one-year, $910,000 contract Sunday, March 29, and the deal includes a $137,500 signing bonus.18 hours
35.Jets | NYJ had interest in Sam Martin (thehuddle) The New York Jets had interest in signing P Sam Martin in free agency before he ultimately agreed to a three-year, $7.05 million deal with the Denver Broncos, according to multiple sources.21 hours
36.Dolphins | Jordan Howard completely healthy (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) said he is completely recovered from the shoulder injury that bothered him at the end of the 2019 season. Analysis: Howard is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the Dolphins in 2020 and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats, although he's unlikely to receive many goal-line opportunities.22 hours
37.Dolphins | Emmanuel Ogbah completely healthy (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins DE Emmanuel Ogbah (pectoral) said he was cleared four to five weeks ago to resume on-field workouts but hasn't because of coronavirus regulations. He ended the 2019 season on injured reserve after sustaining a torn pectoral muscle while playing for the Kansas City Chiefs.22 hours
38.Devin Funchess officially inks one-year deal with the Packers (FantasyPros) Devin Funchess officially signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Packers. Analysis: Funchess agreed to one-year deal with the Packers earlier this week, but now it's official. The deal also includes a $1 million signing bonus, including up to $3.75 million in incentives. Funchess broke his collar bone in the Colts' opener and ended up being placed on injured reserved, missing the rest of the season. He finished with three catches for 32 yards in his only game as a Colt in 2019. Funchess gives Aaron Rodgers a big target, and could see a small boost in fanta... (More)1 day
39.Colts | Return to form for Philip Rivers? (thehuddle) Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers 'might return to 2018 form' behind one of the league's top offensive lines, in the opinion of Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. Analysis: Rivers struggled with turnovers throughout last season, but he tossed 32 touchdowns to just 12 picks in 2018 and had thrown at least 28 touchdowns in six straight seasons. The Colts don't have a ton of weapons in the passing game, but Rivers could be a serviceable QB2 with a clean pocket to throw from.1 day
40.Darius Jennings inks a deal with the Chargers (FantasyPros) Former Titans WR and kick return specialist Darius Jennings has signed a deal with the Los Angeles Chargers. Analysis: Jennings got his first NFL opportunity back in 2015 with the Cleveland Browns. He didn't play in 2016, but has played the last three seasons with the Titans. He was primarily used as a return man in Tennessee, and in 2018, he led the NFL with a 31.7-yard kickoff return average. With all the weapons on offense already in place in Los Angeles, he'll likely be utilized in a similar special teams role with the Chargers.1 day
41.Saints | Emmanuel Sanders a good fit? (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders' ability to find openings in zone coverage makes him a good fit for head coach Sean Payton's system, according to Matt Bowen of ESPN.com. Analysis: With Michael Thomas drawing plenty of attention from opposing defenses, Sanders could shine as a dependable secondary option for Drew Brees. He's at least worth grabbing as a WR4.1 day
42.Eagles | Philly counting on JJ Arcega-Whiteside (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside 'needs to take a big jump' in 2020 now that he is fully healthy, according to general manager Howie Roseman. Analysis: The second-round pick had a disappointing rookie year, managing just 10 catches for 169 yards. Arcega-Whiteside should be given a chance to make a jump and carve out a steady role, but he's just a stash candidate in dynasty leagues until he starts producing on the field.1 day
43.Dre'Mont Jones: Likely to remain a backup (RotoWire) The Broncos' resigning of veteran Shelby Harris places Jones' presumed starting role in doubt for 2020, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Analysis: Jones was a favorite of head coach Vic Fangio's heading into the 2019 draft and all signs pointed to him entering the starting lineup in 2020 opposite Jurrell Casey with the presumed departures of Harris and Derek Wolfe. Harris' return throws a wrench into the works. Klis floats the potential of Jones starting alongside Harris and Casey while nose tackle Mike Purcell rotates in, but that leaves the team very undersized upfront -- something that led to a poor performance against the run ea... (More)1 day
44.Shelby Harris: Figures to return to first team (RotoWire) Harris is likely to join Jurrell Casey and either Dre'Mont Jones or Mike Purcell in the starting lineup, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Analysis: Harris' return, and at a discounted rate, is a bit of a shock considering his six sacks and nine passes defensed -- a league high for defensive linemen -- in 2019. He'll return to a lineup that has lost veteran Derek Wolfe and replaced him with Casey, a perennial Pro Bowler. Klis floats the idea of starting Harris at, presumably, nose tackle between Casey and Jones. That seems unrealistic considering how the Broncos were gashed by the run early last season with the undersized Harris at n... (More)1 day
45.Texans | Randall Cobb better than ever? (thehuddle) Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb said he feels better than he has in at least five years after focusing on improving his hamstring strength during his time with the Dallas Cowboys. Analysis: Cobb's 828 yards last year were his most since 2015, and he averaged a career-high 15.1 yards per reception. Following the surprising trade of DeAndre Hopkins, Cobb could find himself a key part of the Houston passing game. 1 day
46.Derek Wolfe: Agrees to one-year deal with Ravens (RotoWire) Wolfe (elbow) and the Ravens have agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $6 million, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Wolfe finished out the 2019 season on injured reserve after suffering a dislocated elbow in Week 13. When he was on the field, Wolfe turned in one of the better statistical campaigns of his career, posting a career-best seven sacks to go along with a forced fumble and 34 tackles (23 solo). Wolfe seems bound for the starting spot vacated after Michael Brockers' deal with the Ravens fell through earlier this week.1 day
47.Derek Wolfe agrees to a one-year, $6M deal with the Ravens (FantasyPros) Former Broncos DE Derek Wolfe is signing a one-year, $6M deal with the Baltimore Ravens. Analysis: Wolfe, an eight-year veteran out of Cincinnati, was drafted by the Broncos in the second round of the 2012 draft. The edge rusher started 12 games last season for the Broncos and recorded a career-high seven sacks. Wolfe has 299 tackles and 33 sacks in his career with Denver and now he'll take his pass rushing ability to Baltimore, a nice consolation prize for the Ravens after they were unable to land DE Michael Brockers.1 day
48.Demarcus Robinson: Going back to Kansas City (RotoWire) Robinson will re-sign with the Chiefs on a one-year deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Robinson spent his first four seasons in Kansas City and will now enter his fifth there as well. The 25-year-old pass catcher hauled in 32 passes for 449 yards and four touchdowns in 2019. His yardage nearly doubled his first three seasons combined. With Tyreek HIll, Sammy Watkins and Mecole Hardman still ahead of him on the depth chart, he will presumably be used similarly in 2020.1 day
49.Demarcus Robinson re-signs with the Chiefs on a one-year deal (FantasyPros) WR Demarcus Robinson is signing a one-year, $2,297,500 fully guaranteed deal to remain in Kansas City. Analysis: Robinson, a former 2016 fourth-round selection out of Florida, has played three seasons with the Chiefs. Last year, Robinson found himself with a golden opportunity as fellow WR Tyreek Hill went down with a shoulder injury very early in the season. Robinson capitalized with some monster games for those that were able to pick him up off the waiver wire. He finished the year with 32 catches for 449 yards and four touchdowns. At best, he's the 5th option on o... (More)1 day
50.WR Demarcus Robinson staying in Kansas City (FFToday) Demarcus Robinson will be returning to the Chiefs on a one-year contract. So if Choiefs keep Sammy Watkins rather than release him, their top four WRs from last season ae back. Analysis: Robinson did his fantasy damage early in the 2019 season while Tyreek Hill on the sidelines including a 6-172-2 line against the Raiders in Week 2. After that, he never topped 56 receiving yards in any game. He's off the fantasy radar unless injuries occur to the receiving corps in Kansas City.1 day
51.Ravens | Baltimore had interest in Mike Daniels (thehuddle) Free-agent DT Mike Daniels (Lions) was talking with the Baltimore Ravens before the Ravens decided to sign DE Derek Wolfe. 1 day
52.Ravens | Derek Wolfe is joining Baltimore (thehuddle) Unrestricted free-agent DE Derek Wolfe (Broncos) reached an agreement with the Baltimore Ravens to sign a one-year deal worth up to $6 million, a source said Saturday, March 28. 1 day
53.Dynasty | Alshon Jeffery stays with Eagles (Dynasty League Football) The Eagles have exercised receiver Alshon Jeffery's 2020 contract Analysis: They also made the same decision with Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz though neither were in danger. For Jeffery, however, the Eagles gave no clear indication they were certain to bring him back after finishing his third season with the team, and only playing in 23 games over the past two. Recently turned 30, the decision to bring him back wasn't one based on production as Jeffery only produced 43 receptions, 490 yards and four touchdowns in 2019 and is still reco... (More)1 day
54.Edmond Robinson: Officially heading to Atlanta (RotoWire) Robinson signed a one-year deal with the Falcons on Saturday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: A technicality kept Robinson's deal from becoming official Friday, but with the issue since resolved, he's been formally announced as a member of the Falcons. A 2015 seventh-round draft pick of Minnesota, Robinson has 22 regular-season appearances to his name with two starts and 13 career tackles. More recently Robinson played five games for the Houston Roughnecks of the XFL, and he was rated as the fifth-best edge rusher in the entire league during his tenure, per Pro Football Focus.1 day
55.Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson returns to KC (thehuddle) Unrestricted free-agent WR Demarcus Robinson (Chiefs) will re-sign with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal, a source said Saturday, March 28. Financial terms were not disclosed. Analysis: It seemed like Robinson, 25, may have had a market elsewhere, but returning to the Chiefs on a one-year deal could position him for a better run at free agency in 2021. Robinson showed capable of being a capable fill-in for the Chiefs early in the year when Tyreek Hill was injured. A Week 2 explosion vs. the Oakland Raiders (6-172-2) accounted for 38 percent of his total receiving yardage on the year and half of Robinson's touchdown producti... (More)1 day
56.Packers | Devin Funchess contract details (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess received a one-year, $2.5 million contract, which includes a $1 million signing bonus, $1.2 base salary, $50,000 workout bonus and $15,625 each game active. The deal also contains another $3.75 million in incentives, bringing the max to $6.25 million.1 day
57.Buccaneers | Ryan Smith re-signs with Bucs (thehuddle) Free-agent CB Ryan Smith on Saturday, March 28, was re-signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.1 day
58.49ers | Could Matt Breida be traded? (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is a potential candidate to be traded, in the opinion of Spotrac.com. Analysis: Breida saw a decline from his career numbers of 2018 (1,075 total yards, five TDs), totaling 743 yards and two scores last season. More alarmingly, he only had nine rushing attempts for 19 yards during the Niners' three-game ground-heavy run to the Super Bowl and with San Fran already rostering Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and possibly getting Jerick McKinnon back after a pair of seasons missed to injury, don't be surprised to see Breida dealt.1 day
59.Panthers | Curtis Samuel a trade candidate? (thehuddle) Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is a potential candidate to be traded, according to a list put out by Spotrac.com. Analysis: Samuel's receptions, touch count and yards from scrimmage have gone up in each of his three seasons, resulting in a 73-touch, 757-yard-7-TD stat line last season, but now with the Panthers adding another speedy weapon in free-agent WR Robby Anderson, Samuel may indeed be expendable. He's a WR4 currently, but could bump up a level if traded to the right team.1 day
60.Eric Tomlinson signs a deal with the New York Giants (FantasyPros) TE Eric Tomlinson announced on Instagram that he has signed a deal with the New York Giants. Analysis: The run-blocking specialist lands back in New York after playing games for three teams in 2019, Oakland, New England, and the Giants. Prior to last season, Tomlinson had played three seasons with the Jets, only catching 16 balls for 193 yards and one touchdown. He'll be a nice addition to what the Giants are trying to do on offense that features star RB Saquon Barkley.1 day
61.Giants | Eric Tomlinson back with NYG (thehuddle) Free-agent TE Eric Tomlinson (Raiders) is signing with the New York Giants, the team announced Saturday, March 28.1 day
62.NFL | Michael Bennett not ready to retire (thehuddle) Free-agent DE Michael Bennett (Cowboys) is interested in playing during the 2020 season, according to a source.1 day
63.Shelby Harris returning to the Broncos on a one-year deal (FantasyPros) Mike Klis on Twitter is reporting that the Denver Broncos have reached an agreement with defensive tackle Shelby Harris worth $3.25M, including $2.5M in guaranteed salary. Analysis: The Broncos bring back Harris on salary friendly deal that will fortify their front line defense. Harris played all 16 games for the Broncos last year. He provided 49 total tackles and six sacks last season. Harris can be placed on watch list for now in deep dynasty IDP leagues.1 day
64.Eagles | Malik Jackson has option exercised (thehuddle) The Philadelphia Eagles have exercised the contract option of DL Malik Jackson. He had a $2.4 million option that had to be exercised or his 2020 salary would have increased to $10 million; instead, he will earn a base salary of $1.05 million this year.1 day
65.Shelby Harris re-signs with Denver on a one-year, $3.25M deal (FantasyPros) DT Shelby Harris is re-signing a one-year, up to $3.25M deal with the Denver Broncos, with $2.5M guaranteed. Analysis: Harris will be back with the Broncos for a fourth season. He set a career-high in sacks last season with six, to go along with 49 tackles. After only starting six games in his first two years in Denver, Harris started all 16 games in 2019. He'll look to build on his impressive 2019 campaign and provide the Broncos with a solid pass rush in 2020.2 days
66.Edmond Robinson: Expected to join Falcons (RotoWire) Robinson is signing with the Falcons, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: Wilson reported Friday morning that a league source had said Robinson was joining the Falcons. A subsequent report from the Athletic's Jason Butt clarified that the official offer had not yet been presented because of a "slight technicality". Though the final terms of the deal have yet to be nailed down, the former Viking, and more recently Houston Roughneck linebacker is expected to join Atlanta's linebacking corps in the near future. Among a position group that looks very thin for the Falcons at the moment, the XFL standout Robinson will c... (More)2 days
67.Dontari Poe: Joining forces with Dallas (RotoWire) The Cowboys and Poe agreed to terms of a contract Friday, David Helman of the team's official site reports. Analysis: An eight-year pro, Poe has experience in both 3-4 (Kansas City and Carolina) and 4-3 (Atlanta) alignments, the latter of which he'll be a part of in Dallas. Over the course of his career, he's tallied two-plus sacks in four campaigns while averaging 49.3 defensive snaps per game. The 6-foot-3, 346-pound nose tackle will serve a space-eating role once he recovers from surgery on a quad injury that ended his 2019 season after 11 contests.2 days
68.Dakota Dozier re-signs a one-year, $1M deal with the Vikings (FantasyPros) OL Dakota Dozier is re-signing a one-year, $1M deal to remain with the Minnesota Vikings. Analysis: The veteran guard will return to Minnesota for a second season. Dozier started his career in New York, playing five seasons with the Jets. He started four games last season for the Vikings, and will provide them with depth on the offensive line in 2020.2 days
69.Bengals | Andy Dalton could stay in Cincy (thehuddle) Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton could remain with the team for the 2020 season, and 'all options are still on the table' for the quarterback, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Analysis: Dalton has been the subject of trade rumors, but the Bengals continue to sit on the veteran quarterback. There is still a chance he is moved before the start of the season, but with Cincinnati expected to draft Joe Burrow with the No. 1, it seems unlikely Dalton would be starting if he is a still a Bengal come Week 1.2 days
70.Marqui Christian: Deal falls through (RotoWire) The Jets' previously-reported deal with Christian has fallen through, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Per the the report, though it looked like the safety was poised to sign a one-year, $2 million deal with the Jets, the two sides were unable to finalize Christian's contract terms. The 25-year-old, who recorded 36 tackles in 16 games for the Rams last season, thus returns to the free-agent market.2 days
71.Ryan Smith signs a one-year, $1.75M deal to return to Tampa Bay (FantasyPros) CB and special-teamer Ryan Smith has signed a one-year, $1.75M deal time return to the Buccaneers. $1M is guaranteed, with the opportunity to earn up to $500,000 in incentives. Analysis: The former 2016 fourth-round pick out of NC Central has been with Tampa Bay for four seasons. He played some corner in 2017 and 2018, recording 62 and 38 tackles respectively. In 2019, Smith was relegated to more of a special teams role, but thrived in that role, and has been doing so all four years with the Buccaneers. He'll be back with the team for at least one more season.2 days
72.Joel Heath re-signs with the Broncos on a one-year deal (FantasyPros) DE Joel Heath has re-signed a one-year deal with the Denver Broncos. Analysis: Heath was claimed by the Broncos last season after he was released by the Texans. He played in Houston for three years prior to his release. Heath only has 34 tackles and three sacks during his three-year career, but the product out of Michigan State will get an opportunity to further his career as a defensive end in Denver.2 days
73.Kai Forbath: Facing job competition (RotoWire) The Cowboys signed Greg Zuerlein to challenge Forbath for the placekicker job, Patrik Walker of CBS Sports reports. Analysis: A three-year, $7.5 million contract makes Zuerlein the presumptive favorite, even though Forbath converted each of his 10 field-goal attempts and each of his 10 PATs in three games with the Cowboys late last season. Forbath owns the superior mark for career field-goal percentage (86.8), but Zuerlein has the bigger leg and the bigger contract.2 days
74.Greg Zuerlein: Exits LA for Dallas (RotoWire) Zuerlein has reached agreement on a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Coming off a down season with nine missed field goals, Zuerlein will settle for a contract that leaves him outside the top tier at his position, and he may even need to compete with Kai Forbath -- who recently signed a one-year contract -- for the placekicking job. Zuerlein, the presumptive favorite, still has plenty of leg strength, as evidenced by his five conversions from 50-plus yards for the Rams last season. The 32-year-old primarily struggled on medium-distance kicks, going 5-of-11 in the 40-49... (More)2 days
75.Randall Cobb: Credits improved hamstring strength (RotoWire) Cobb, who recently agreed to sign with the Texans, said he felt better in 2019 than he had in previous seasons, getting good results after he strengthened his hamstrings, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Cobb claims the Cowboys training staff identified his weak hamstrings as a potential limiting factor and worked with him to strengthen the muscles during the offseason. He went on to produce his most receiving yards (828) since 2015 and his best mark for yards per target (10.0) since 2014, despite being charged with eight drops. Cobb averaged 9.1 yards before the catch on his 55 receptions, compared to 3.9 in his final s... (More)2 days
76.Melvin Gordon: Willing to share with Lindsay (RotoWire) Gordon anticipates working in a "one-two punch" with Phillip Lindsay (wrist) in the Denver backfield, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports. Analysis: Broncos GM John Elway used the same terminology earlier this week, suggesting both Gordon and Lindsay will have key roles in the offense. Gordon's two-year, $16 million contract suggests he'll be the "one" in that one-two punch, though it's Lindsay who owns the impressive career average of 4.9 yards per carry. Gordon's mark of 4.0 YPC has been oft-cited as a criticism, and while there is some merit to the argument against him, it's also true that he's spent most of his career running behind s...

77.Zach Ertz has 2021 option exercised by Eagles (FantasyPros) Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports the Eagles have exercised their 2021 option on tight end Zach Ertz. Analysis: Ertz is set to make $8 million this season followed by $8.25 million in 2021. The two sides are expected to continue discussing a long-term extension in the coming months. Ertz, who hauled in 88 receptions last season, should remain a high-end tight end for fantasy purposes this year.2 days
78.Falcons | Laquon Treadwell contract update (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Laquon Treadwell signed a one-year contract with the Falcons worth $910,000. 2 days
79.Greg Zuerlein is signing with the Cowboys (FantasyPros) Greg Zuerlein has agreed to a 3-year/$7.5M contract with the Cowboys. Analysis: After splitting kicking duties in 2019 between Brett Maher and Kai Forbath, the Cowboys will get a big upgrade by bringing in Zuerlein. His big leg combined with the Cowboys' explosive offense will make him a top-5 kicker for the 2020 season.2 days
80.Broncos | Denver signs Joel Heath (thehuddle) Free-agent DT Joel Heath (Broncos) signed with the Denver Broncos Friday, March 27. Terms of the contract were disclosed. 2 days
81.Ronald Jones: Getting competition soon? (RotoWire) Coach Bruce Arians said the Bucs would "love to have a pass-catching back" to complement Jones in the backfield, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Analysis: This might be taken as a hint that the Bucs are comfortable with Jones as their lead runner, but it also could be interpreted as a critique of his blocking and receiving skills. The offseason priorities in Tampa Bay were to add Tom Brady and re-sign key players in the defensive front seven, while RB Peyton Barber and WR Breshad Perriman were permitted to leave without much of a challenge. The backfield depth chart now looks paper-thin behind Jones, featuring Dare Ogunbowale, T.... (More)2 days
82.Eagles | Option picked up for Alshon Jeffery (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27. Analysis: Jeffery's status with the team is still uncertain, so fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 10 games last season because of injuries and finished with 490 receiving yards. He could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2020 depending on his situation.2 days
83.Eagles | Carson Wentz's option picked up (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27. Analysis: Wentz finished the 2019 season with 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues next season.2 days
84.Jets | NYJ's deal with Marqui Christian falls through (thehuddle) Updating previous reports, unrestricted free-agent S Marqui Christian's one-year deal agreed upon with the New York Jets ran into a snag during the finalization phase, and New York is moving on from signing Christian, a source said Friday, March 27.2 days

93.Ameer Abdullah: Back with Minnesota (RotoWire) The Vikings have re-signed Abdullah. Analysis: The 26-year-old logged 23 carries for 115 yards to go along with 15 catches for 88 yards and a TD in 16 games for the team last season. Now that he's back in the fold, Abdullah will continue to serve as a depth option in Minnesota's backfield and should also reprise his role as the squad's primary kickoff returner in 2020.2 days
94.Cowboys | Greg Zuerlein is on his way to Dallas (thehuddle) Unrestricted free-agent PK Greg Zuerlein (Rams) will sign a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys, sources said Friday, March 27. Analysis: Zuerlein will be reunited with former special teams coach John Fassel and boot for one of the more explosive offenses in the NFL. The weather is generally nice in his new home stadium, and the roof closes, if needed. The retirement of center Travis Frederick, not wanting tight end Jason Witten back, and loss of wideout Randall Cobb could mean the offense is in better shape for a kicker than last year by taking a step back. Zuerlein has one of the strongest legs in the land, ... (More)2 days
95.Falcons | Edmond Robinson heads to Atlanta (thehuddle) Former XFL Houston Roughnecks LB Edmond Robinson will sign with Atlanta Falcons, sources said Friday, March 27. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.2 days
96.Ameer Abdullah re-signs a one-year deal with the Vikings (FantasyPros) RB Ameer Abdullah re-signs with Minnesota on a one-year deal. Analysis: Abdullah will return to Minnesota for a third season. He's been the primary kick returner and the 3rd or 4th RB on the depth chart for the Vikings the past two seasons. He'll most likely compete with Mike Boone for the 3rd-string RB position behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison. Even if he beats out Boone for a spot behind Cook and Mattison, Abdullah likely doesn't have any fantasy value unless either of the first two guys goes down with an injury.2 days
97.Antonio Brown: Not wanted in Tampa (RotoWire) Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Brown wouldn't be a fit with the team, ESPN.com's Jenna Laine reports. Analysis: Tom Brady reportedly had interest in bringing Brown to his next NFL stop, but Arians was quick to shut down the rumors, noting that he knows the wide receiver (from their time together in Pittsburgh) and doesn't think he'd be a good fit in the Bucs' locker room. It isn't even clear that Brown will be allowed to play in the NFL in 2020, due to his recent track record of off-field problems, per Chris Cwik of Yahoo Sports. The 31-year-old wide receiver made one appearance for the Patriots in 2019.2 days
98.Reggie Ragland: Headed for Motown (RotoWire) Ragland reached an agreement Friday to sign with the Lions, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Selected by Buffalo in the second round of the 2016 draft, Ragland suffered an ACL injury during his first training camp and was traded to Kansas City a year later. He went on to start 32 of his 42 games the past three seasons, but he largely served as an early down specialist, recording 160 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception. The 26-year-old linebacker isn't likely to establish IDP value in Detroit, but he could push Jarrad Davis, Christian Jones or Jalen Reeves-Maybin for playing time. Jamie Collins is the only Lions linebac... (More)2 days
99.Cowboys | Dak Prescott has backing (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, who has received the exclusive franchise tag from the team, has the backing of teammate Sean Lee as he strives to get a long-term deal done with the Cowboys. 'I think we obviously know how great of a player Dak is, how great of a leader he is,' Lee said, via the Dallas Morning News. 'And what he's done for us, really carried us in a lot of ways the last couple of years. We know it's a matter of time for them to figure out contract situations like that. I think we've all been through those or had teammates go through situations like this. And there's a lot of rhetoric and there's a lot of talk in the m... (More)2 days
100.Zach Ertz: Eagles exercise 2021 option (RotoWire) Philadelphia picked up Ertz's (rib/kidney) contract option for 2021 on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The news isn't a major surpise as the 29-year-old is set to earn $8 million and $8.5 million over the next two seasons, but the move officially puts him on the books for 2021. Ertz sustained a cracked rib and lacerated kidney Week 16 and missed the regular-season finale, but he returned to play 61 offensive snaps in the team's wild-card loss to the Seahawks. He finished the season with 88 catches for 916 yards and six touchdowns in 2019, and he'll enter next season as a top target for quarterback Carson Wentz... (More)2 days
