After Terrelle Pryor left Washington Friday morning without a contract, the former Browns wide receiver ended up signing a one-year, $8 million contract with the Redskins Friday afternoon.(Washington Post)
FF Today's Take:After losing Desean Jackson (TB) and Pierre Garcon (SF) in free agency the Redskins have bolstered their receiving corps by signing Pryor who topped 1000 yards last season with the Browns finishing 22nd among fantasy wideouts. Pryor will compete with TE Jordan Reed and Jamison Crowder for targets and will be valued as a WR2/3 in redraft leagues.
49ers in on WRs Garcon and Goodwin-- Wed Mar 8 2:10 pm --
Rebuilding WR corps
WR Marquise Goodwin is signing with the 49ers, per source. Redskins were interested, but Goodwin like his other options available. Reports indicate Redskins WR Pierre Garcon will be heading to the San Francisco 49ers on a heavily front-loaded contract.(Washington Post)
FF Today's Take:The 49ers and new coach Kyle Shanahan are rebuilding there wide receiver group. Torrey Smith is gone and it appears Garcon and Goodwin are in once free agents can officially sign on Thursday. Goodwin is a speedster who averaged 14.9 yards per catch with Buffalo last season. Garcon played for Shanahan while the two were together in Washington.
Redskins re-sign TE Vernon Davis-- Wed Mar 8 9:00 am --
After a pleasantly surprising comeback season last year, the Redskins have signed Vernon Davis to a new deal, the team announced Wednesday. According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the deal is for three years and is worth $15 million.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:Davis held some TE2 fantasy value last season in Washington's pass-happy offense and was on the TE1 radar when Jordan Reed was sidelined by injury. With the potential of losing receivers Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, Davis could see his usage escalate in 2017 but his fantasy value is more closely aligned with the health of Reed.
