| Rashaad Penny has clean-up procedure on knee|
Same knee as torn ACL in December 2019
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 15 2021, 7:08 pm
|Rashaad Penny also remains sidelined. Carroll said he had a clean-up procedure on the knee that suffered a torn ACL in Dec. 2019. Said he should be ready by training camp. "Rashaad is working out, doing a ton of stuff, but not quite ready to be out there where he’s reacting yet." (Brady Henderson on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Penny has been dogged by injuries early in his NFL career, playing in only 27 games through three years. He's expected to be ready by training camp but remains a risky late-round pick as Chris Carson's backup. DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and Alex Collins are also in Seattle's running back room.
| Jonnu Smith missing practice with hamstring injury|
Injury occurred on Monday
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 15 2021, 9:34 am
|Jonnu Smith won't practice today after suffering an apparent hamstring injury yesterday in practice, per source. (Jeff Howe on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Injuries during minicamp aren't typically something to get excited about unless there of a serious nature. We'll monitor Jonnu throughout the summer and expect him to be ready for training camp at the end of next month. Smith will be battling Hunter Henry for opportunities in the Patriots passing offense.
|Falcons prepping Russell Gage for increased role|
“I understand my role may have increased, but I’m ready for it.”
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 11 2021, 10:05 am
|With wide receiver Julio Jones off to Tennessee, the Falcons will count on Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage. “Russ has worked a lot in the slot, but like with all of our skill players, it’s our job to as coaches to push down with these guys and see what they can handle,” Smith said. “Russell has done a nice job in the slot, but we’ve moved Russell all over the place. Then we’ve got to make decisions as we get closer to the season. ... We envision Russ playing multiple spots.” (Atlanta Journal Constitution)|
FFToday's Take: With Julio now catching passes from Ryan Tannehill, someone is going to have to step up in the Falcons offense. TE Kyle Pitts is expected to fill some of the vacated Julio targets but Gage should be first wideout in line to see a boost in production. He's an ideal late-round selection in drafts and should fly under the radar throughout the summer.
| Minor foot surgery for Calvin Ridley |
Should be fine for camp
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 9 2021, 12:18 pm
|#Falcons WR Calvin Ridley recently underwent minor foot surgery from Dr Robert Anderson in Green Bay, source said. A little cleanup. No participation in minicamp, but should be fine for training camp. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Head coach declined to comment on Ridley's absence during minicamp. This doesn't sound serious and should only ring alarm bells if Ridley is sitting out practice once camp begins at the end of July. Ridley is top receiving option in Atlanta now that Julio Jones has moved on to Tennesee.
| Amari Cooper working through ankle injury|
Expected to be ready for camp
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 9 2021, 12:07 pm
|Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said WR Amari Cooper “is still working through” ankle injury, hence why he hasn’t practiced this spring. McCarthy “hopeful” that Cooper will be ready for start of training camp. Cooper had surgery this offseason. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Cooper's surgery occurred in early January and there's been no indication that he won't be ready for camp. Cooper is entering his 7th season and has been very consistent since coming to Dallas with fantasy finishes of WR22, WR15 and WR22 in PPR leagues the last three seasons. A solid WR2.
| Curtis Samuel missing practice with groin injury|
Washington minicamp begins
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 8 2021, 10:36 am
|Rivera says Curtis Samuel is still dealing with the groin issue. Jimmy Moreland and Jon Bostic had excused absences today. (JP Finlay on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Samuel misses the Football Team's first mandatory minicamp practice with a groin injury. Samuel is expected to start opposite Terry McLaurin and is currently coming in at WR45 (Rd 10.05) in PPR leagues. Expect his ADP to creep up in the high 30s assuming he's able to participate in training camp.
|Aaron Rodgers officially a holdout|
Green Bay QB misses start of minicamp
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 8 2021, 9:43 am
|Aaron Rodgers wasn’t present at the start of the 8:30 a.m. team meeting to kick off #Packers minicamp, I’m told. As expected, the NFL MVP is now officially a holdout. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Rodgers has failed to show up for the team's mandatory minicamp which isn't a surprise but marks the official beginning of his holdout from practice. He remains disgruntled with GM Brian Gutekunst who has said publicly he has no plans to trade his star quarterback. Should Rodgers sit out the entire season, Jordan Love would be a big downgrade to the Packers offense as a whole and to Davante Adams specifically.
|Falcons trade Julio Jones to Titans|
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 6 2021, 12:18 pm
|The Titans deal for Julio Jones:
- The #Falcons get a 2022 2nd rounder and a 2023 4th rounder.
- The #Titans get Julio Jones & a 6th rounder in 2023.
- The #Titans take on Jones’ salary of $15.3M in 2021 and the rest of the deal.
- #Falcons have $7.75M in dead money this year. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Given the Titans are inheriting the entire contract this is probably about as good of a deal as could be expected for Atlanta. This move is likely a ding to Matt Ryan's value and the offense as a whole as they lose one of the best playmakers in the game. That being said, this trade elevates rookie TE Kyle Pitts as the Falcons search for playmakers to go along with Calvin Ridley. The Titans get a much needed offensive weapon after losing Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith to free agency.
|Lions showing interest in Todd Gurley|
RBBC coming to Detroit?
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 3 2021, 12:38 pm
|Lions’ HC Dan Campbell on free agent Todd Gurley: “Look, we have interest in Todd. We do. We’re talking with him and his agent. But just because we have interest in him that does not affect our feeling and our thoughts on both D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams. It does not.” (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Campbell can sugarcoat it all he wants but the addition of Gurley isn't going to bode well for the playing time of Swift or Williams. If Swift is going to be a reliable RB2 this fall, he's going to have to earn it on the field.
|Eagles claim Kerryon Johnson off waivers|
Eagles building depth at RB
By: Mike Krueger | May 7 2021, 4:21 pm
|#Eagles have claimed RB Kerryon Johnson off of waivers. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Johnson was released by the Lions as their set to move forward with D'Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams and rookie Jermar Jefferson. The Eagles have some depth at the running back position now which will likely get cleaned out prior to final cuts. Miles Sanders, rookie Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott are likely to make the roster with Kerryon, Jordan Howard and Jason Huntley battling for the last spot on the final 53.
|Broncos acquire Teddy Bridgewater for sixth-round pick|
Broncos will pay Bridgewater $3M of his $10M guarantee
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 28 2021, 1:49 pm
|The #Panthers are trading QB Teddy Bridgewater to the #Broncos for a sixth-round draft pick, per source. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Broncos have been kicking the tires on rookie quarterbacks this off-season and may select one if the board falls in their favor regardless of this move for Bridgewater. This will be referred to as a competition between Bridgewater and Drew Lock but it's safe to assume, Bridgewater will be the Week 1 starter barring unforeseen circumstances.
|Bucs bring back Antonio Brown|
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 28 2021, 9:33 am
|Antonio Brown’s contract has a $2-million signing bonus and a $1.1 million base salary. He will count $3.1-million against the salary cap in 2021. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Tampa has their entire starting offense from 2020 back for 2021. Brown, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin will be the starting three wide receivers for Tom Brady. Brown posted a 45-483-4 line in eight games last season and will have weekly Flex appeal, especially in DFS lineups.
|Alex Smith announces retirement|
Former Washington, Chiefs, 49ers QB calls it a career
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 19 2021, 12:25 pm
|Quarterback Alex Smith announced his retirement on Monday in a video posted to Instagram. Smith, 36, won the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year award in 2020 after returning from a catastrophic leg injury to start six games for the Washington Football Team. Smith played 14 seasons over 16 years in the NFL for the 49ers, Chiefs and Washington after San Francisco drafted him No. 1 in the 2005 NFL Draft out of Utah. (The Athletic)|
FFToday's Take: Smith's remarkable return from his leg injury will be a significant part of his NFL legacy. His best fantasy season came with the Chiefs in 2017 when he posted a 4042-26-5 passing line with 355 rushing yards and 1 rushing TD, finishing as the QB4 in fantasy points per game.
|Julian Edelman expected to retire|
Patriots release veteran wide receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 12 2021, 4:20 pm
|While Julian Edelman showed up on the NFL transaction wire today as having his contract terminated by the Patriots, the expectation is that it is a technicality as part of a retirement, per @MikeReiss. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Edelman played only six games last season dealing with a knee injury that limited his production. The Patriots have accumulated Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne in free agency to give their wide receiver room some depth.
| James Conner has procedure on toe|
Turf toe-type injury
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 12 2021, 2:14 pm
|Ex-#Steelers RB James Conner underwent surgery to repair a very moderate turf toe-type injury this offseason, sources say, a procedure done by renowned specialist Dr. Robert Anderson. The injury incurred while riding in a recreational vehicle. A full recovery is expected in June. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Toe injuries can be tricky for athletes but there's nothing to suggest at this point that Conner won't be ready for off-season workouts this Summer. After four seasons in Pittsburgh, Conner is scheduled to visit the Cardinals on Monday. The Cardinals currently have Chase Edmonds and Eno Benjamin at running back.
| Bengals release Giovani Bernard|
Was asked to take a pay cut 2 weeks into free agency
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 7 2021, 9:48 am
|Giovani Bernard asked for his release and the #Bengals granted it, source says. The team had asked him to take a pay cut two weeks into free agency, which hurt his chances of landing elsewhere. But he's expected to find a new gig soon. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Gio has played for the Bengals since being drafted in 2013. He's largely played behind Joe Mixon the last three seasons which has limited his fantasy value. He'll likely land a backup gig somewhere else but will struggle to have value on a weekly basis. The Bengals have Trayveon Williams and Samaje Perine behind Mixon heading into the draft.
|Panthers make a move for Sam Darnold|
Jets receive 2021 6th-round pick and 2bd- and 4th-round picks in 2022
By: Mike Krueger | Apr 5 2021, 3:58 pm
|Filed to ESPN: Jets trading QB Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers for a 2021 sixth-round pick and second- and fourth-round picks in 2022, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Panthers have been looking to upgrade their quarterback position but it's fair to question how much of an upgrade Darnold is over Teddy Bridgewater who has two years left on his contract. While Darnold is likely the Week 1 starter in Carolina, this trade doesn't move the needle for the likes of Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore or Robby Anderson. The Jets own the No.2 pick in this year's draft and will be taking a quarterback.
|NFL officially approves 17-game schedule|
Beginning in 2021
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 30 2021, 2:29 pm
|NFL owners have formally approved the 17-game regular season starting in 2021. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: AFC teams will host the NFC in the extra game this season with the NFC hosting AFC teams in 2022. Fantasy commissioners will need to adjust their league schedule accordingly but ultimately another week of fantasy football is a good thing.
|Baltimore lands Sammy Watkins|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 26 2021, 6:44 pm
|The #Ravens are signing free agent WR Sammy Watkins and giving him a 1-year deal worth $6M - with $5M fully guaranteed, source said. Watkins lands and Baltimore has its weapon. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The former Chief visited the Colts but when T.Y. Hilton returned to Indianapolis, the Ravens became the only viable option. Watkins has played well when healthy but has long been a headache for fantasy owners due to his soft tissue injuries. He'll start the season in Baltimore as a risky WR4 given the run-heavy nature of the Ravens attack.
|Dolphins/Eagles swap first-round picks|
Miami now picking at No.6
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 26 2021, 1:35 pm
|Eagles traded their sixth to the Dolphins for No. 12 and their 2022 first-round pick. Teams also swapped mid-round picks -- Eagles' pick 156 for No. 123. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Dolphins move back into top 6 after they acquired pick No.12 in their trade with the 49ers. The Eagles pick up a first-round pick next year for their trouble. With these moves it seems Miami will be pressing forward with Tua Tagovailoa and are in a good position to draft an offensive playmaker at No.6
|49ers/Dolphins swap draft picks, SF now picking at No.3|
Miami drops to No,12 picks up first round picks in 2022 & 2023
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 26 2021, 1:04 pm
|Filed to ESPN: Dolphins trading No. 3 overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers for the No. 12 pick, a 2022 third-round pick (SF’s comp pick for Robert Saleh hiring) and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023, per sources.
Blockbuster deal with massive ramifications for years to come. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Huge move here by the Dolphins and 49ers. Schefter has since reported that the 49ers are looking at a QB but are committed to QB Jimmy Garoppolo and have no plans to trade him. It's highly unlikely the 49ers would give up this much in a trade if it weren't for a quarterback.
|Bucs bring back Leonard Fournette|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 26 2021, 11:39 am
|It’s a one-year deal for Leonard Fournette worth $3.25 million with incentives that would push it to $4 million, per source. The band is almost all back together. (Jenna Laine on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Bucs have largely re-signed their own free agents this off-season with only Antonio Brown still outstanding. Fournette will join Ronald Jones in the backfield with both having weekly value depending on performance and injury. Given Tampa's two-headed approach it's going to difficult for fantasy owners to assign value to these two in redraft leagues.
|T.Y. Hilton stays in Indianapolis|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 24 2021, 3:02 pm
|T.Y. Hilton is getting his wish. Hopeful of being a “Colt for life,’’ the veteran receiver is getting that opportunity. After briefly testing the free-agent market, Hilton has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the Indianapolis Colts that includes $8 million in guarantees, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report the transaction. (Fox 59 in Indianapolis)|
FFToday's Take: Hilton reportedly was being pursued by the Ravens but will stick with the Colts on a one-year deal. Hiltons' fantasy stock took a hit last season as the Colts focused on the run with Philip Rivers at helm. He'll be a borderline WR3 with Carson Wentz under center. The Colts wide receiver room includes Michael Pittman Jr., Zach Pascal, Parris Campbell along with Hilton.
| Bears add Damien Williams to backfield|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 24 2021, 12:58 pm
|The #Bears have agreed to terms on a 1-year deal with former Super Bowl hero RB Damien Williams, source said. Lots of familiarity, as he knows Matt Nagy’s offense from KC, and he was OC Bill Lazor with the #Dolphins. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Williams was a 2020 COVID-19 opt-out in Kansas City last season but will rejoin the league in 2021 under familiar coach Bill Lazor. Williams will slide into a backup role behind David Montgomery and the return of Tarik Cohen (ACL) could put a damper on Montgomery's upside. Montgomery finished 6th in PPR points per game in 2020.
|Falcons add Mike Davis|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 22 2021, 8:19 am
|Source: #Panthers RB Mike Davis to the #Falcons on a 2 year deal worth $5.5M with $3M fully guaranteed in Year 1, source says. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Davis became fantasy relevant last season as Christian McCaffrey dealt with various injuries. With Todd Gurley and Brian Hill both free agents, Davis sits atop the running back depth chart for Atlanta for the moment but expect the Falcons to address the position during the draft.
|Rams bring in DeSean Jackson|
Reunites with Sean McVay
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 21 2021, 9:13 pm
|It's a one-year deal for DeSean Jackson with the Rams, where he reunites with Sean McVay who served as his OC for three seasons in Washington. Rams have been in search of a deep-threat receiver. (Lindsey Thiry on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: At 34 years old Jackson is still considered a deep threat in the league but has trouble staying healthy playing in just 8 games over the last two seasons. He'll join Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson as the top receivers for Matthew Stafford.
|Giants land Kenny Golladay|
Four-year deal, $40 million guaranteed
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 20 2021, 3:37 pm
|Sources: #Lions FA WR Kenny Golladay is picking the #Giants, expected to complete a deal with NYG to give QB Daniel Jones a top receiver. A big FA off the board. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Giants and the Bears appeared to have the most interest in Golladay with the Giants being Golladay's top team. The Giants have a good group of playmakers but have yet to show steady offensive results with Daniel Jones under center. This move doesn't smell like an uptick to Golladay's fantasy value. If anything, he's more of a WR2 than fringe WR1.
|Texans add another RB: Phillip Lindsay|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 19 2021, 8:07 pm
|Texans are giving RB Phillip Lindsay a one-year, $3.25 deal that includes $1 million guaranteed, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Texans recently added Mark Ingram to their running back mix that including Lindsay also contains David Johnson, Dontrell Hilliard and Buddy Howell. This is a less-than exciting landing spot for Lindsay who has shown some flash in recent years while battling injuries. He'll be a late-round flier in redraft leagues.
|Chris Carson stays in Seattle|
Rashaad Penny breakout put on hold
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 19 2021, 7:04 pm
|The Seahawks and Chris Carson agreed to a new contract Friday. It is a three-year deal worth up to $24.625 million but voids to two years at $14.625 million. So it’s best viewed as a two-year deal, with the void year a way for the team to spread out more of the salary-cap hit. (Seattle Times)|
FFToday's Take: Carson has been Seattle's main back for the last three but only played in 12 games last season due to injury. He should resume his role as the lead back for Seattle but will have Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer, DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins ready to step in should he log more time on the injury list.
|JuJu stays in Pittsburgh|
Had better offers from BAL and KC
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 19 2021, 1:17 pm
|JuJu Smith-Schuster is returning to Pittsburgh on a 1 year deal, taking a massive paycut to return to his home over larger offers from divisional rivals and Super Bowl contenders to accommodate Pittsburgh’s tough cap situation. JuJu is staying home. (Taylor Bisciotti on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Ian Rapoport noted that the Ravens and Chiefs had better offers on the table but JuJu opted to stay in Pittsburgh. The Steelers implemented a short passing attack last season that pushed more targets to rookie Diontae Johnson (88-923-7) but JuJu got his fair share (97-831-9) making him a solid WR2. He'll carry that value into 2021 as Ben Roethlisberger returns at QB.
|Dolphins sign Will Fuller, one-year deal|
Miami gets speed receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 18 2021, 3:53 pm
|Former Texans’ WR Will Fuller reached agreement with the Miami Dolphins, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Fuller has battled injuries his entire career and then got suspended for 6 games (will miss one game in 2021) in what was shaping up to be his breakout season. His lack of availability has made him a fantasy headache buy if he can stay healthy he should be a viable WR2 in Miami although there are legitimate concerns about Tua Tagovailoa's ability to support two fantasy receivers.
|Bills bring in Mitchell Trubisky as Josh Allen's backup|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 18 2021, 3:02 pm
|Bills are giving former Bears' QB Mitchell Trubisky a one-year deal. He now becomes the back up to Josh Allen. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Falling out of favor in Chicago, Trubisky will give it a shot in Buffalo as Allen's backup. Trubisky posted a 2055-16-8 line in 10 games for the Bears last season but won't have any fantasy value unless Allen gets hurt. Chicago signed Andy Dalton yesterday and will likely be the starter in Week 1.
|Raiders add Kenyan Drake to running back room|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 18 2021, 2:33 pm
|Former Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is signing a two-year, $11 million deal that includes up $14.5 million with the Raiders, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Interesting move by the Raiders who already have Josh Jacobs as their lead back. Drake figures to play a secondary role as the No.2 option and brings into question Jacobs' injury history as he played banged for a good portion of last season. Devontae Booker has moved on to the New York Giants.
|Chargers replace Hunter Henry with Jared Cook|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 18 2021, 1:38 pm
|The #Chargers have their replacement for Hunter Henry, as they have agreed to terms with FA Jared Cook, source said. He gets a 1-year deal worth $6M witht $4.5M fully guaranteed. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Chargers saw Henry sign with the Patriots and fill the void with Cook who played the last two seasons in New Orleans finishing as the TE21 and TE9 respectively in PPR leagues. Cook will be 34 years old in April but will give the Chargers a pass-catching tight end. This move also puts a wet blanket on the breakout potential of Donald Parham.
|Washington adds WR Curtis Samuel|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 17 2021, 8:00 pm
|Former Panthers’ WR Curtis Samuel is signing a three-year, $34.5 million deal with Washington, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: A perfect move for Washington, adding another playmaker next to Terry McLaurin on the outside. Samuel posted a 77-851-3 line as a receiver and also rushed for 200 yards and 2 scores for the Panthers last year. Samuel feels like a WR3 with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center.
|Broncos add Mike Boone to backfield|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 17 2021, 7:14 pm
|Broncos have reached agreement with former Viking RB Mike Boone, per source. Boone a No. 3 RB/core special teamer in 3 seasons with George Paton’s Vikes. #9sports (Mike Klis on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Boone is an interesting sign and could find himself as the No.2 running back behind Melvin Gordon depending on what happens with Phillip Lindsay who was given a tender worth $2.18 million but wouldn't cost any willing team a draft pick to sign him. Fantasy owners should keep their eye on Boone as we progress through the pre-season.
|A.J. Green expected to sign with Arizona|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 17 2021, 1:24 pm
|A.J. Green is expected to sign a one-year deal worth up to $8.5 million, including $6 million guaranteed, with the Arizona Cardinals, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The free agent wide receiver market has been slow to get going but with John Brown signing with the Raiders and Green signing with the Cardinals, things are starting to pick up. Green will turn 33 later this summer but is surely got himself a starting gig in three wide receiver sets in Arizona. This move immediately brings up the future of Larry Fitzgerald who is currently unrestricted.
|Jamaal Williams headed to Detroit|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 16 2021, 11:49 pm
|Former #Packers RB Jamaal Williams is signing a two-year deal worth up to $7.5 million with the #Lions, per source. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Packers re-signed Aaron Jones yesterday and with AJ Dillon already in the mix Williams was allowed to walk in free agency. The Lions are re-shaping their roster and figure to be one of the worst teams in the league in 2021. Williams is likely to play second fiddle to D'Andre Swift at the running back position making him a late-round option in redraft leagues.
|Bills agree to terms with WR Emmanuel Sanders|
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 16 2021, 8:01 pm
|The #Bills have agreed to terms with WR Emmanuel Sanders on a one-year deal, per source. Once released by the #Saints, he's slated to fly to Buffalo on Thursday to take a physical and finalize the deal. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: After releasing John Brown last week, the Bills were in the market for a No.2 wide receiver behind Stefon Diggs. Sanders (33) will join Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis in the wide receiver room and have some weekly flex value in redraft leagues.
|Dolphins add Malcolm Brown to RB mix|
Former Ram becomes a Dolphin
By: Mike Krueger | Mar 16 2021, 6:27 pm
|Dolphins have agreed to terms on a deal with former Rams RB Malcolm Brown, source confirms.
Powerful, versatile back who will come in to compete with Myles Gaskin & Salvon Ahmed. Though Miami seems likely to add another RB in the draft. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brown has spent six seasons with the Rams but only cracked 400 rushing yards once (2020) as was largely a backup piece to Todd Gurley and Cam Akers. He seems destined for a similar role in Miami and thus off the fantasy radar unless the Dolphins fail to address the position in the upcoming draft.
