Colts Linked To Nelson Agholor
Written by Staff 8 hours ago Category: Fallers Philadelphia Eagles
The Indianapolis Colts are expected to be in the market for wide receivers this offseason, and they've already been linked to Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Agholor had his best season in 2017 when Frank Reich and Mike Groh were offensive assistants -- they are both with the Colts now. In just 11 games in 2019, Agholor disappointed with 39 receptions for 363 yards and three touchdowns. An injury ended his season early, but he couldn't take advantage of DeSean Jackson's injury that kept him out for the majority of the year. A change of scenery would probably serve him well, but he wouldn't be guaranteed a large role in Indy's run-first offense with questions at quarterback.
Jarvis Landry Has Hip Surgery
Written by Staff yesterday Category: Injuries Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry had surgery on his hip on Feb. 4, according to a post from his personal Instagram account. The surgery comes as somewhat of a surprise, as Landry had previously stated that he would not need surgery on his hip, which bothered him throughout the 2019 season. Landry is expected to make a full recovery and should return to the team at some point in training camp, which begins in late July. According to reports, Landry had visited with multiple hip specialists since the end of the season and eventually decided that surgery was the proper route to take. He will remain a solid WR2 for fantasy in 2020.
Redskins Pick Up Adrian Peterson's Option
Written by Staff 2 days ago Category: Top-Headlines, Transactions Washington Redskins
The Washington Redskins exercised the 2020 team option on running back Adrian Peterson on Wednesday. Peterson led the team in attempts (211), rushing yards (898) and rushing touchdowns (five) in 2019 and will enter the 2020 season having started in 154 of the 164 games he's appeared in. The veteran is ranked eighth in NFL history in rushing attempts (3,036) and sixth in yards per game (86.7). He needs 1,054 rushing yards to pass Barry Sanders for fourth on the all-time list and needs 13 rushing TDs to pass Marcus Allen for No. 3. Peterson is a seven-time Pro Bowler and four time first-team All-Pro, but he'll take a back seat to Derrius Guice next year if Guice can stay healthy.
Chris Harris Jr. Could Reach Open Market
Written by Staff 3 days ago Category: Risers Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr., whose name was thrown around before last year's draft and at the October trade deadline, thinks that the team will allow him to test the open market once he officially becomes a free agent next month. "If they want me back, then Ill be back," Harris said. The 30-year-old has become one of the better cover cornerbacks in the NFL after nine years in the league, earning four Pro Bowl nods and a first-team All-Pro selection in 2016. This past year, Harris had 56 tackles (44 solo), one interception and one forced fumble over a full season. With Denver's D looking to take a step forward in Year 2 under head coach Vic Fangio, losing Harris would be a big setback to the secondary.
Jets Unlikely To Trade Le'Veon Bell
Written by Staff 4 days ago Category: Fallers New York Jets
The New York Jets won't cut running back Le'Veon Bell because of the $19 million in dead salary cap money if they do so, and because of his massive salary, a trade is remote as well. If they really wanted to trade Bell, they'd have to be willing to pay a portion of his 2020 salary, which is $13.5 million in total guarantees. And the Jets would probably only be able to get a Day 3 draft pick in return. After taking a year off in 2018, The 27-year-old (28 on Tuesday) looked slow and heavy in his first year in New York. Bell ran 245 times for only 789 yards (a career-low 3.2 yards per carry) and only three touchdowns. His receiving contributions help, but Bell's fantasy stock will obviously be down entering 2020 fall drafts. Consider him more of an RB2 with some upside if he comes into camp motivated to bounce back.
No Timetable For Ryan Shazier's Return
Written by Staff 5 days ago Category: Injuries New Orleans Saints
There remains no timetable for a potential return for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier (back) as he rehabs from spinal stabilization surgery. Shazier has not played for the last two seasons, and it remains to be seen if he'll ever play again. His contract from the 2019 season will not toll over to 2020, but the Steelers continue to support his comeback efforts. If Shazier's contract expires, he will become a free agent when the new league year begins on March 18. The 27-year-old was a force in the middle of the field for the Steelers in the four seasons before his injury. We wouldn't bet against Shazier making a comeback, but it might not be for the Steelers.
Will Jaguars Pick Up Leonard Fournette's Fifth-Year Option?
Written by Staff 6 days ago Category: Risers Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars must decide this offseason if they will pick up running back Leonard Fournette's $10.1 million fifth-year option for 2021. It's an interesting decision because they are limited for salary cap space, so they could decline the option and wait to see how he performs in 2020 before considering a contract extension. The 25-year-old had 265 carries for a career-high 1,152 yards, but he rushed for only three touchdowns in 15 games. It's Fournette's second 1,000-yard season in his three seasons. Despite the lack of TDs in 2019, he should be seen as an RB1 in a run-first offense next season. He has yet to play in a full season, though, so he's a bit risky as an RB1.
David Johnson Not A Cut Candidate
Written by Staff 7 days ago Category: Fallers Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said that cutting running back David Johnson "is not an option." Keim also added that "you can't just have one back," and Kenyan Drake, who took over the starting role in the second half last year, is scheduled to be a free agent in March. Johnson ran the ball just 94 times for 345 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and two rushing touchdowns in 13 games last season. He battled nagging injuries that slowed him down and caused him to lose the starting job to Drake. The 28-year-old looked like a shell of his former self, one that ran for 1,239 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2016. Even if DJ returns in 2020, it seems unlikely that he'll be a bell-cow back with all of his injury concerns.
Matthew Stafford Trade Rumors Are False
Written by Staff 8 days ago Category: Risers Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn refuted a Wednesday night report that the team is in talks to trade quarterback Matthew Stafford. "100% False!!" Quinn wrote in a text message to the Free Press. Stafford is entering his 12th season in the NFL and threw for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions while setting a career-high passer rating in just eight games before suffering a back injury that caused him to miss the rest of the season. Detroit has the No. 3 pick in the draft, prompting speculation that they could move on from Stafford and select another QB. Stafford gives the Lions the best chance to win in 2020, and the team would incur a $32 million salary cap hit if they trade him.
Chargers Could Go With Tyrod Taylor Under Center
Written by Staff 9 days ago Category: Risers Los Angeles Chargers
All the big-name free-agent quarterbacks will be linked to the Los Angeles Chargers this offseason now that they have moved on from Philip Rivers, but general manager Tom Telesco said that he likes "our internal options" at quarterback in Tyrod Taylor and Easton Stick. Still, it would be a surprise if the Bolts didn't sign a quarterback on the open market or draft one this year. If Taylor goes into the 2020 regular season as the starter, he'll have plenty of options to work with around him in the offense. However, even though he can use his legs to gain extra yardage, Taylor would be an upside QB2, at best, for fantasy owners.
Cowboys Want Dak Prescott Deal Done Before March 10
Written by Staff 10 days ago Category: Risers Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys are making a push to get a long-term contract extension with quarterback Dak Prescott done before March 10. The franchise-tag deadline closes on March 10, so if the Cowboys can't get an extension with Prescott done by then, they will put the franchise tag on him. It will be extremely difficult to get done, despite the fact that Prescott wants an extension and the Cowboys are pushing this hard as their No. 1 offseason priority. The 26-year-old quarterback turned down $33 million per year before the 2019 season and will likely be pushing for well over $35 million a season in extension talks. He did throw for a career-high 4,902 yards, 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2019, and he'll be a high-end fantasy QB1 going into fall drafts.
Myles Garrett Meets With NFL On Monday
Written by Staff 11 days ago Category: Top-Headlines Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett met with Roger Goodell on Monday as he works toward reinstatement from his indefinite suspension. The NFL has not yet established a timetable for Garrett's reinstatement, although insiders seem to believe it is likely to happen soon. Garrett has been on his best behavior since the suspension and he could be ready for the beginning of the team's offseason program, which begins on April 6. Garrett missed the final six games of the 2019 season after hitting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph over the head with his own helmet.
Cowboys To Have More Complex Defense In 2020
Written by Staff 14 days ago Category: Fallers Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys Defense will continue with a four-man defensive front under new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who is 60 years old and who has 32 years of experience as an NFL coach, including from 2005 through 2008 as the head coach of the 49ers. He wants Dallas' defense to have "a swarming type of mentality." The knock on Dallas' D in recent seasons was that it was too simple and didn't take the ball away enough. They constantly played a single-high safety in 2019, but Nolan wants the defense to be more complex in 2020. The Cowboys tied a franchise low with only seven interceptions last year, and in the last five years their 43 picks are tied with the 49ers for the fewest in the NFL. They also underwhelmed with just 39 sacks in 2019. Dallas' defense could improve under Nolan, but they'll definitely have to fix issues in their secondary if they are to be trusted by fantasy owners.
Rams To Meet With Todd Gurley To Decide His Future
Written by Staff 15 days ago Category: Fallers Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams and head coach Sean McVay want to sit down with running back Todd Gurley before they make a decision on his future. Gurley has been one of the best running backs in football with three 1,000-yard seasons in his first five years in the NFL, but knee issues limited him to just 223 carries in 2019 for a career-low 857 yards, although he did score 12 rushing touchdowns. Outright releasing Gurley would leave the Rams in a huge hole in terms of the salary cap ($25.6 million in dead money). Trading him is on the table. It would be more feasible but definitely not easy given his big contract. Gurley is due a $7.55 million roster bonus in March. The former 10th overall pick played in 15 games last year, but the Rams were wary of not overdoing things with his knee. The injury concerns will make Gurley more of an RB2 going forward.
Jalen Richard Re-Signs With Raiders
Written by Staff 16 days ago Category: Transactions Oakland Raiders
The Las Vegas Raiders and running back Jalen Richard agreed to a contract extension on Wednesday, according to a source. Richard served as the third-down back behind rookie workhorse Josh Jacobs. The 26-year-old had a career-low 39 carries as a result for 145 yards and no touchdowns. He added 36 receptions on 43 targets for 323 yards and no touchdowns. Richard is a valuable pass-catcher out of the backfield, but with Jacobs' role expected to grow even more in the passing game in 2020, Richard will strictly be a PPR handcuff for Jacobs owners.
Greg Olsen To Visit With Seahawks
Written by Staff 17 days ago Category: Fallers Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks are interested in former Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, according to a source. The veteran tight end will take a visit to Seattle. That will be after he visits with the Bills and Redskins this week. From a fantasy perspective, Olsen going to the Seahawks and catching passes from quarterback Russell Wilson would make him the most attractive. He'd still be more of a low-end TE1 at risk of injury, however, since he hasn't played a full season in the last three years. Olsen has a broadcasting job waiting for him whenever he decides to retire, but it looks like he wants to play at least one more season.
Jimmy Garoppolo Falters Down The Stretch
Written by Staff 18 days ago Category: Fallers San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 20 of 31 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Garoppolo played his standard role through most of the contest, facilitating running schemes and connecting with efficient completions when necessary. His touchdown pass came in the second quarter on a 15-yard strike to fullback Kyle Juszczyk. However, Jimmy G faltered down the stretch after the Niners fell behind. Garoppolo converted just two of seven attempts in his final two possessions, taking a critical sack and tossing a pick to ice the game. Having shown just flashes of brilliance this season, Garoppolo will have to prove he can shoulder a larger load heading into next years campaign.
Panthers Want To See Cam Newton Work Out In March
Written by Staff 20 days ago Category: Fallers, Injuries Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers want to see quarterback Cam Newton (foot) work out on the field in March when he's healthy, according to a source. They would like to evaluate him to make a decision on his future. "They want to at least give him a shot, see where he's at," the team source said. "Then we'll see what happens." If the Panthers trade Newton, they'll save $19.1 million on the salary cap. Even if the team drafts a QB in 2020, it's not far-fetched to think that they let him play out the final year of his deal. The 30-year-old played in just two games in 2019 and has also had shoulder issues recently, drastically dropping his appeal in fantasy leagues. Newton could bounce back as a QB1, but many owners probably won't touch him as anything more than a backup after last season's disaster.
Kenny Golladay In Line For Massive Extension?
Written by Staff 21 days ago Category: Risers Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay, a late addition to last week's Pro Bowl as an alternate, could be in line for a big contract extension after leading the league with 11 touchdowns and topping 1,000 yards receiving for the second straight season. "They better hurry up and pay Kenny," NFL Network analyst James Jones said Thursday at Super Bowl 54. "Very, very fast because the longer you wait to pay Kenny, the higher the price goes." Golladay's 2019 season was even more impressive when you consider that quarterback Matthew Stafford played in only eight games due to a back injury. He played last season for $676,000, slightly over the league minimum, but he would stand to make $15 million or more with a new contract. Golladay is heading into the final year of his rookie deal and has emerged as a true WR1 in fantasy.
Sammy Watkins Could Be Candidate For Pay Cut
Written by Staff 22 days ago Category: Fallers Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who is set to count $21 million against the salary cap with a base salary of $13.75 million (none of it guaranteed) in 2020, understands that the team may approach him about a pay cut or just cut him outright. The Chiefs would save $14 million in cap space with $7 million in dead money if they cut Watkins after the Super Bowl. The former fourth overall pick would be open to considering a pay cut if it kept him in town. Watkins produced a 1,000-yard season in his second year in the league, but he's become more of a complementary weapon at this stage of his career and is the third receiving option, at best, for KC, although he did step up in the AFC Championship for seven catches, 114 yards and a touchdown. The 100-yard game was just the second of the season for Watkins, with the other coming in the season opener when he scored three touchdowns against Jacksonville.
