Fantasy Football Breaking News

  • Sam Bradford - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/13/18 11:30am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bradford has dealt with injuries for most of his career, so this would be a risky signing for the Cardinals. He will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with in Arizona but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/13/18 11:24am ET

    Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is talking with the New Orleans Saints about a possible deal, but the talks have stalled over the last few hours, according to sources. The two sides are hoping to reach an agreement at some point.

    Huddle Up: Graham should know the Saints offensive scheme since he played for the team before he was traded to the Seahawks and would have a solid role in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end if he signs with the Saints.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/13/18 11:13am ET

    Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham is receiving interest from the Baltimore Ravens, but the Ravens are not considered one of the favorites to sign him.

    Huddle Up: Graham probably will not sign with the Ravens this offseason, so the Ravens likely will look to add a tight end in free agency or the draft. Owners in most leagues probably will can avoid whoever starts at tight end for the Ravens.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 3/13/18 11:10am ET

    Free-agent RB Dion Lewis (Patriots) can add the Miami Dolphins to the list of teams interested in his services, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Kenyan Drake played well for the Dolphins late last year, but Damien Williams is a free agent and Miami is looking for more depth at the position. Lewis and Drake would undoubtedly cut into each other's fantasy value, but let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 3/13/18 10:54am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon has reportedly been receiving steady interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon typically played well for the Vikings when given the chance, but never seemed to win them over. Tampa Bay is one of the few spots where he would have a legitimate shot to earn the starting job or compete for a lead-back role at the very least, assuming the Bucs don't also use a high pick at running back in the draft. McKinnon would be in the flex discussion if Tampa Bay seals the deal.

  • Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
    Posted 3/13/18 10:40am ET

    The Denver Broncos officially exercised the $4 million option bonus in WR Demaryius Thomas' contract Tuesday, March 13, locking him $12.5 million between salary and bonuses in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Thomas is coming off a pair of disappointing seasons - for him anyway - but the Broncos appear confident the 30-year-old's production is more of a result of a bad quarterback play than a decline of skill. It's a reasonable assumption. While the expected addition of Case Keenum probably won't resuscitate Thomas' value to where it was when Peyton Manning was around, he should be able to enjoy another 90-catch, 1,000-yard season in 2018.

  • Paul Richardson - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 3/13/18 10:13am ET

    Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Paul Richardson is expected to sign a five-year contract worth a reported $40 million deal with $20 million guaranteed, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: It's a pretty penny for an injury-prone receiver, but he should give Washington the deep threat it lacked last season after letting DeSean Jackson bolt via free agency. Richardson finally stayed healthy for the most part in 2016 and enjoyed a mini-breakout season, finishing with 44 catches for 703 yards and six touchdowns - all career highs. Richardson could reach fantasy WR3 value in the nation's capital, but he probably needs to be viewed more as a WR4.

  • Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
    Posted 3/13/18 9:19am ET

    Cleveland Browns exclusive-rights free agent Josh Gordon received a one-year tender worth $790,000 on Tuesday, March 13. He will not be able to negotiate with other teams as a result.

    Huddle Up: Gordon's options were limited as an exclusive-rights free agent, but this tender does give him the right to sign a long-term deal down the road. If he has truly moved past his off-field problems, he should have no problem doing so. He has long had fantasy WR1 upside, but owners would be wise to draft him more like a low-end WR2 or WR3 given his history.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/13/18 8:56am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, March 15, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Anything can happen between now and then, but his fantasy value doesn't hinge on where he signs. He's an upper-middle QB1 regardless.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/13/18 8:36am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is likely to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Things can always change, but he is visiting with them first, and they have an opening on a playoff roster. Cousins is an upper-middle QB1 wherever he goes.

  • Trey Burton - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 3/13/18 8:10am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, March 13.

    Huddle Up: Burton was starting to come into his own this season, and he'll have room to spread his wings in a different uniform. Burton is a sneaky TE2 with some upside.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/13/18 8:05am ET

    Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will visit the Minnesota Vikings first, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cousins is an upper-middle QB1 in fantasy wherever he goes.

  • Dustin Hopkins - PK - Washington Redskins
    Posted 3/13/18 7:46am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins PK Dustin Hopkins' three-year deal is worth $6.875 million, according to a source. He received a $1,201,072 million signing bonus.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was 14-for-17 on FGAs in eight games last season, and he's worth consideration for late-PK1 grab.

  • Danny Woodhead - RB - Baltimore Ravens
    Posted 3/13/18 7:10am ET

    Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead will be released Tuesday, March 13, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Woodhead still has sneaky PPR value, maybe as a RB4, depending on where he lands.

  • Drew Brees - QB - New Orleans Saints
    Posted 3/13/18 6:55am ET

    New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees agreed to a two-year, $50 million deal Tuesday, March 13, with the Saints. He'll receive $27 million guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Brees is a safe QB1 in fantasy, but his numbers took a hit with the emergence of the running game last season. Target him after the elite tier is gone.

  • Peyton Barber - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Posted 3/13/18 6:53am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers exclusive rights free-agent RB Peyton Barber signed a one-year, $630,000 deal with the Buccaneers Tuesday, March 13.

    Huddle Up: Barber is in line to start, but the team is probably looking to add depth at the position. Barber could be worth an RB3 pickup if major changes don't come.

  • Albert Wilson - WR - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 3/13/18 6:44am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Albert Wilson agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal with the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, March 13.

    Huddle Up: Wilson hasn't done much for fantasy owners to take heed to, but he could end up being the Dolphins' starting slot receiver. Keep him in mind for a WR5 flyer.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 3/13/18 12:10am ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson (knee) intends to sign with the Chicago Bears shortly after the start of the new league year barring any last-minute snags Wednesday, March 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: Assuming this deal happens and his recovery from ACL surgery goes smoothly, Robinson brings instant credibility to a receiving corps that needed help perhaps more than any team in the league. While a healthy Robinson alone won't be enough to guarantee Mitchell Trubisky succeeds, it gives him a fighting chance. This move doesn't figure to boost Robinson's fantasy stock much if at all, as he should remain in the WR2 conversation.
