Bills add to backfield with T.J. Yeldon

Monday April 22nd, 2019 01:00:00 PM
Two-year contract

The team announced a two-year contract agreement with running back T.J. Yeldon on Monday. Yeldon, 25, is a former second-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2015 who spent the first four years of his career in Jacksonville. His most prolific season as a rusher was as a rookie. He finished with 182 carries for 740 yards as Jacksonville’s primary back. (Buff)

FF Today's Take: Yeldon has spent the last few seasons splitting carries in Jacksonville with Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory. Yeldon becomes the youngest back in Buffalo but has to fight LeSean McCoy and the ageless Frank Gore for carries. That will result in Yeldon being a late-round flier or an undrafted free agent for fantasy owners to keep their eye on early in the 2019 season.

Texans expect Will Fuller to be ready Week 1

Thursday April 18th, 2019 04:15:00 PM
Injury Missed nine games in 2018

When the Texans open the regular season against the New Orleans Saints, they expect speedy wide receiver Will Fuller to be on the field running routes.Fuller is rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last season against the Miami Dolphins."I expect when we kick off against New Orleans for him to be ready to go," Gaine said. "Everything is going well with Will, no setbacks. Everything trending in right direction. He's looking good." (Houston Chronicle)

FF Today's Take: Fuller dealt with hamstring issues early during the 2018 season then suffered an ACL injury on October 25th. He's made a difference when on the field (11 TDs in 11 games with Deshaun Watson) but missed six games in 2017 and nine games last season due to injury. Ideally, the Texans would like to run out DeAndre Hopkins, Fuller and Keke Coutee as their three wide receiver set.

Patriots sign WR Demaryius Thomas

Tuesday April 16th, 2019 08:45:00 PM
One-year deal

The #Patriots are giving former #Broncos and #Texans WR Demaryius Thomas a 1-year deal worth up $6M, source said. They discussed trading for him last year, signed him this year. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Thomas will be reunited with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. His coming off his second Achilles injury in December and won't be a lock to make the roster. The Patriots current wide receiver depth chart reads as Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Thomas, Bruce Ellington and Braxton Berrios.

Carolina adds WR Chris Hogan

Friday April 12th, 2019 03:30:00 PM
One-year deal

The Panthers have signed WR Chris Hogan, formerly with the New England Patriots. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Hogan ends his three-year tenure with the Patriots where he had inconsistent success never topping 40 catches in a season. He'll join a Panthers team in need of wide receiver depth who plan to feature D.J. Moore and veteran tight end Greg Olsen in the passing game. Hogan should slide into a starter role but will have to battle Curtis Samuel for opportunities. He's a WR5 at best in redraft leagues.

Jets add another RB: Ty Montgomery

Thursday April 11th, 2019 09:00:00 PM
Will backup Le'Veon Bell

Jets are signing former Packers’ RB Ty Montgomery to a one-year deal, per source. Montgomery expected to be the back to Le’Veon Bell. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Montgomery split time with the Packers and Ravens and got lost in the shuffle in Baltimore competing for playing time with Gus Edwards, Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen. Montgomery will now fight for touches with Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon behind Le'Veon Bell. Montgomery won't have much fantasy value in 2019 unless Bell misses time.

Leonard Fournette arrested for speeding

Thursday April 11th, 2019 06:15:00 PM
Knowingly driving with a suspended license

Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was arrested for speeding and knowingly driving with a suspended license, according to Jacksonville jail records. Fournette paid a $1,500 bail and was admitted at 2:40 p.m. He’s likely to be released shortly. (Phillip Heilman on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The Jags are giving no comment at this time. The charges are relatively minor but it's another bump in the road for the workhorse back. Fournette has dealt with numerous injuries in his brief two-year career causing him to miss 11 of 32 games. He finished as the RB10 in his rookie season of 2017.

Patriots sign TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Wednesday April 10th, 2019 05:30:00 PM
One-year deal

Source: the Patriots have signed veteran TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins to a one-year deal. Great chance to be a factor in their passing game. (Field Yates on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: ASJ was reportedly deciding between the Patriots and Seahawks. With Jacob Hollister, Stephen Anderson, Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo currently making up the Pats tight end depth chart, it's possible ASJ could have a fantasy impact on the field. The Patriots however got along just fine in the passing game without utilizing the tight end last season as much as they had previous seasons when Gronkowski was in his prime.

Ravens add former Raiders' WR Seth Roberts

Friday April 5th, 2019 06:00:00 PM
One-year deal

Ravens are signing former Raiders' WR Seth Roberts to a one-year deal, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Roberts was recently released by the Raiders who have sent wide receivers packing after the acquisition of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams. Roberts joins the run-first Ravens which doesn't do much for his fantasy stock but he should get an opportunity for significant playing time given the lack of depth at the position in Baltimore. Currently, Roberts, Willie Snead and Chris Moore sit atop the Ravens depth chart.

Lions add RB C.J. Anderson

Monday April 1st, 2019 09:30:00 PM
One-year deal

Former Rams’ RB C.J. Anderson reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions, per source. Chance to produce this season, then hit market again after this season. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Anderson turned in a stellar few weeks behind the Rams' powerful offensive line late last season, getting 20+ carries in Weeks 16 & 17 of the regular season and during the Divisional Round of the playoffs. With the Lions, he will backup Kerryon Johnson and give way to Theo Riddick on third downs making him a late-round speculative pick in redraft leagues this summer.

Duke Johnson seeking trade from Cleveland

Monday April 1st, 2019 09:00:00 PM
Browns RB skips voluntary OTAs on Monday

Duke Johnson’s reps have asked the Browns to trade him, a league source told cleveland.com.The Jets, Texans and Eagles have all been interested in Johnson ever since the Browns signed running back Kareem Hunt in February, a league source said. Other teams have inquired as well. In what appears to be a statement about not wanting to be here, Johnson was a no-show for the Browns’ voluntary offseason program Monday, coach Freddie Kitchens said. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FF Today's Take: After being underutilized the majority of last season (only 87 touches) and seeing Kareem Hunt added this off-season, it appears Duke has had enough. There simply aren't enough footballs to go around with all the mouths to feed in Cleveland.

Bears ship RB Jordan Howard to Eagles

Thursday March 28th, 2019 11:55:00 PM
Boost for Mike Davis in Chicago

Bears trading RB Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 6th-round pick in 2020 that can become a 5th-round pick, league source tells ESPN. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Howard is still just 24 years old and now moves to the Eagles who are known for their running back by committee approach. He should handle early-down work as long as he remains healthy, with Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Josh Adams filling out the RB group. This move is also a boost for Mike Davis in Chicago who will split time with Tarik Cohen.

Jordy Nelson calls it a career

Wednesday March 27th, 2019 02:00:00 PM
Former Packers WR hangs it up

After more than a decade in the NFL, my brother, former #Packers & #Raiders WR @JordyRNelson is calling it a career. He’s stepping away from the game with more than 8,500 yards...72+ TD’s and as a SB Champion! I’m proud of him and happy for him and his family! #Ese’ #Respect (James Jones on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Jordy Nelson did draw some interest this off-season after posting a 63-739-3 line last season with the Raiders. Nelson enjoyed four seasons over 1000 yards receiving with Packers scoring double digit TDs (15,13,14) in three seasons with Aaron Rodgers. Nelson will be 34 in late May.
