    Tyron Johnson has now found a home with a ninth NFL team. The fifth-year wide receiver received a Cowboys workout opportunity Monday, and the team announced an agreement is in place. In a corresponding move, the Cowboys cut wideout Antonio Callaway. The former Browns draftee has joined Johnson in bouncing around the league, but his […]

  • Chargers, Justin Herbert Discussing Contract Extension

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    The Los Angeles Chargers remain in talks with Justin Herbert to extend the 25-year-old's contract. Herbert, the No. 6 overall draft pick in 2020, has two years left after the Chargers exercised his fifth-year option earlier this year. Last season, he suffered a cartilage fracture in Week 2 and a torn labrum in his left shoulder in Week 17, and the Chargers' top two wide receivers also missed multiple games with injuries. While Herbert completed 68.2% of his passes, a career-high, and threw interceptions at his lowest ever rate, his touchdown pass total and yard per attempt figure fell to their lowest levels yet. Now with new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore coming in, there is hope that Herbert can get back to the high-end of play he was showing for much of 2021.

  • Cowboys Negotiating With Trevon Diggs On Extension

    Headshot for Trevon Diggs

    The Dallas Cowboys are negotiating with star cornerback Trevon Diggs, who is in the last year of his rookie deal, on an extension that could be close to $20 million a year. Diggs will make $4.3 million this year. He ranks as a top-10 cornerback, according to PFF, and he has many years ahead of him. The 24-year-old has led all cornerbacks with 17 interceptions over the past three seasons, including two that he returned for touchdowns. He has also had double-digit pass breakups and over 40 solo tackles every season, making him a quality starting defensive back in IDP fantasy football leagues and an essential asset for the Cowboys' defense that increases the value of their DST in fantasy football.

    Indianapolis Colts cornerback Isaiah Rodgers Sr. is under investigation for possible violations of the league's gambling policy, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Rodgers was drafted by the Colts in the sixth round (211th overall) in 2020 out of Massachusetts. The 25-year-old has played 1,500-plus snaps in three NFL seasons and started nine games last year for the Colts. He has returned 71 punt/kickoff returns in the last three years, as well as recording 90 tackles (68 solo), three interceptions, 10 passes defensed, a forced fumble and four fumble recoveries. If Rodgers is found guilty of gambling, he could be suspended for up to the entire 2023 campaign.

  • Cowboys Still Not Ruling Out Reunion With Ezekiel Elliott

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has not ruled out a return for free-agent running back Ezekiel Elliott. Both Elliott and the Cowboys are evaluating their respective futures, according to Jones. Dallas released Elliott in March after seven seasons with the team, including four 1,000-yard campaigns. It would make sense if Zeke returned, as Tony Pollard (ankle, leg) is returning from a serious injury, and the trio of Malik Davis, rookie Deuce Vaughn and Ronald Jones doesn't have a ton of experience or upside. The tread on Elliott's tires is running thin at this point in his career, but he proved in 2022 that he can be an effective short-yardage/goal-line back, carrying the ball 231 times for 876 yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games (14 starts). The 27-year-old back is unlikely to be much more than a TD-dependent RB4/flex in fantasy no matter where he lands.

  • Rachaad White Expects To Be Heavily Involved In Passing Game

    Headshot for Rachaad White

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White said on Sirius XM NFL Radio on Monday that he expects a lot of passes to come his way in the passing game this season. Although Chase Edmonds and Ke'Shawn Vaughn will also have roles in Tampa's backfield in 2023, White entered the offseason as the clear leader for touches with Leonard Fournette no longer on the team. The Bucs offense certainly won't be as intriguing with either Baker Mayfield or Kyle Trask taking over under center for the retired Tom Brady, but White's role increase can't be overlooked in fantasy. The former third-rounder had 129 carries for 481 yards and a score and added 50 receptions for 290 yards and two more TDs in 17 games (eight starts) in his rookie season last year. White's fantasy stock is definitely on the rise. Consider him on the RB2/3 borderline in fantasy drafts.

  • Signs Pointing To Brock Purdy Being Ready For Week 1

    Headshot for Brock Purdy

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy (elbow), who has gone through his first week of throwing a football, is the clear favorite to open the 2023 season as the team's starting quarterback. Purdy had surgery to fix a torn UCL in his right elbow on March 10. If he is ready to play football when the season kicks off, the starting job will be his to lose after a strong rookie season. If his road to a full recovery stays true to his 12-week timeline, Purdy should receive full medical clearance to play around Aug. 21, 20 days before the start of the season. In 2022, the 23-year-old completed 67.4% of his passes for 1,877 yards with 16 TDs and three interceptions, including the playoffs. Purdy definitely impressed last year, but fantasy managers should want to see more before considering him as anything more than a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues, especially coming off significant surgery.

  • Justin Herbert To Work Into 7-On-7 Drills At OTAs

    Headshot for Justin Herbert

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (shoulder) said the plan is for him to work back into 7-on-7 drills this week at organized team activities. It would be his first team drills of the offseason after rehabbing from labrum surgery that he had in January on his left, non-throwing shoulder. The 25-year-old has already resumed throwing as well, but the Chargers are understandably going to take it slow with their franchise signal-caller in the offseason. He should be fully healthy for training camp and the start of the 2023 season, where he'll be looking to bounce back as a midrange QB1 for fantasy managers after a disappointing 2022 campaign in which he battled through a rib injury. Herbert's top-two receivers, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, also missed time with injuries.

  • Ravens Add Another Receiver In Laquon Treadwell

    Headshot for Laquon Treadwell

    The Baltimore Ravens agreed to terms on an undisclosed one-year deal with former Minnesota Vikings first-round wide receiver Laquon Treadwell on Monday, according to his agent, Michael Portner. The Ravens continue to beef up their receiving depth heading into the 2023 season, but Treadwell is likely to be buried on the depth chart. The 27-year-old caught just six of 10 targets for 42 yards in six games for the Seattle Seahawks in 2022, a year after posting 33 receptions for a career-high 434 yards and a touchdown in 12 games (seven starts) for Jacksonville in 2021. Treadwell is unlikely to have any kind of fantasy appeal, even in deeper leagues, while he's behind the likes of Rashod Bateman, Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie first-rounder Zay Flowers. He'll have to compete with Devin Duvernay, Nelson Agholor and James Proche II, among others.

    Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was nearly traded to the Miami Dolphins in March, but it didn't get done, and the Dolphins drafted Texas A&M running back De'Von Achane in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft a month later. Cook has been rumored to be cut or traded this offseason, with Miami being one of the top rumored suitors. It appears Miami made a run at him, but it's unclear whether the selection of Achane will prevent them from discussing a potential trade for Cook before the 2023 NFL season begins. According to Albert Breer, the trade was awfully close to happening and there is reported interest from both Cook and Miami at this point in the offseason. That said, the Dolphins may be out on trading for him but would sign him if released. This will be a story to follow as the offseason rolls on.

    Free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is looking for a new home, and the Dallas Cowboys have been rumored to be a potential suitor. However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the signing of Hopkins is "unlikely." The team is looking to extend wideout CeeDee Lamb in the near future and traded for Brandin Cooks this offseason, so bringing in the 30-year-old receiver isn't a priority for America's team. Lamb and Cooks should be locked in as the top two wideouts for quarterback Dak Prescott, but it's unclear whether the No. 3 wideout will be Michael Gallup or 2022 third-round pick Jalen Tolbert. One of the two will have fantasy football intrigue, at least in deep leagues.

  • Mike Gesicki Working With Wide Receivers At OTAs

    Headshot for Mike Gesicki

    New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki has been utilized more as a wide receiver than a tight end throughout his career, and like many have speculated, the team is getting him work with the wideouts during organized team activities. According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Gesecki was seen running drills with the Patriots' wide receivers while the other tight end on the roster worked on run blocking on a separate field. It looks like Hunter Henry will operate as the traditional tight end, while Gesicki could be split out wide and in the slot alongside wideouts Tyquan Thornton, JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker, and Kendrick Bourne. If Gesicki can become one of the top two receiving options for Mac Jones, he'll have TE1 upside considering the scarcity of the position in fantasy football.

  • Zamir White Has Lost Weight, Added Speed This Offseason

    Headshot for Zamir White

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Zamir White handled just 17 total touches in his rookie season as Josh Jacobs' backup, but he could be in line for a breather back role in 2023. According to Levi Edwards of, the Georgia product has lost weight and added speed and quickness heading into the 2023 season. White weighed 214 pounds and ran a 4.40 at the 2022 NFL Combine, so if he's actually gotten faster, it's an exciting development for the 23-year-old back. Either way, Jacobs remains the starter in 2023 after being franchise tagged and he'll likely command workhorse volume once again. White could see more touches to ease some of Jacobs' workload, but he won't be worth fantasy consideration unless Jacobs has to miss time.

    The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent wide receiver Breshad Perriman to an undisclosed deal on Monday and waived wide receiver Tyler Adams in a corresponding move. The signing comes after the Colts worked out Perriman on Friday. The 29-year-old pass-catcher was a first-round pick (26th overall) by the Baltimore Ravens in 2015. Perriman only lasted two years in Baltimore and has played for four different NFL teams in his seven seasons so far. In the last two years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he's caught 20 of 37 targets for 277 yards and two touchdowns in 17 games (three starts). Perriman caught nine of 19 targets in 2022 for 110 yards and a score in 11 games. He'll provide veteran big-play depth behind Michael Pittman Jr. in Indy, but playing time will likely be limited.

    Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said that he isn't concerned about reports and rumors that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) might not be able to play this year. "I have no anxiety," McDaniels said. "You guys may have anxiety. I have no anxiety." Garoppolo signed a three-year, $72.75 million free-agent deal with the Raiders on March 17 and also signed a waiver/release because of his injured left foot. He had surgery on his foot after signing with the Raiders, and he hasn't been able to practice during OTAs. The Raiders are hoping to have Jimmy G available for the start of training camp, but they also aren't putting a timeline on his return. Veteran Brian Hoyer, who has plenty of experience in McDaniels' system from his time with the Patriots, has been taking first-team reps so far this offseason.

    Carolina Panthers cornerback Jaycee Horn (wrist), the eighth overall pick of the 2021 NFL draft, has played in only 16 games in his first two NFL seasons due to injury. But he's still only 23 and made analyst and former NFL scout Bucky Brooks' all-breakout team for 2023. Horn led the Panthers with three interceptions and tied for the team lead with seven pass breakups last year despite missing the last two games with a broken wrist. He played in just three games his rookie year due to a broken right foot. The 23-year-old has been a full participant in workouts this spring, and he said he's "in a good spot right now." A fully healthy Horn in 2023 would be a huge boost to Carolina's secondary this year.

    Buffalo Bills linebacker Shane Ray, a former first-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2015, is attempting a comeback in the NFL in 2023 after dealing with various injuries over the last five years. The 30-year-old attended Buffalo's rookie minicamp in May before getting signed for an opportunity to win one of the team's final roster spots this summer. By March of 2019, Ray was out of a job with the Broncos after two injury-limited seasons and four wrist surgeries. The 30-year-old had 12 sacks and 28 QB hits in his first 30 games, so the Bills and Ray are hoping he can find some of that magic again this year to give them more pass-rushing depth. Rays spent the last two seasons playing in Toronto in the CFL.

    The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent linebacker Leonard Floyd to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday, according to sources.

He spent the first four years of his career in Chicago before playing for the Los Angeles Rams the last three seasons, where he totaled 29 sacks and 99 solo tackles in 50 starts. The move to sign Floyd reunites him with Von Miller. The two pass-rushers combined for six sacks in the playoffs on their way to a Super Bowl title with the Rams two seasons ago. Floyd will bring more experience depth to an already impressive pass-rushing group in Buffalo, and he hasn't missed a regular season game since 2017.

    Washington Commanders tight end Cole Turner put on a show at last year's training camp and is once again impressing the coaching staff during offseason workouts this year as he looks to earn himself a bigger role in 2023. Turner was a fifth-round selection out of Nevada last year, but he played in only 10 games (two starts) and caught two of nine targets for 23 yards in his first NFL season. Logan Thomas is the team's top pass-catching tight end, but he hasn't been able to stay healthy consistently, so there could be opportunity behind him for Turner, John Bates and rookie Armani Rogers. The 23-year-old will need to continue developing, but he could be one to watch in fantasy leagues if Thomas misses more time with injuries in 2023.

Meanwhile, rookie sixth-rounder Chris Rodriguez Jr. is just trying to get as many repetitions as possible heading into his first NFL season. Williams may have to hold off Rodriguez and Jaret Patterson for touches in 2023 behind Robinson and Gibson, but the 29-year-old can also contribute on special teams. In his second year with Washington in 2022, Williams had 37 carries for 152 yards and caught seven passes for 40 yards in 13 games (two starts). Unless one of Robinson or Gibson miss time with an injury, Williams will remain off the fantasy radar this year.

"Chris is a hardworking kid," offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. "He takes a tremendous amount of pride in everything that he does, and I think right now he's in a good place." Pro Football Focus graded Rodriguez as the best running back in the SEC last year, and he averaged 6.2 yards per carry in his collegiate career. While buried on Washington's depth chart, his job is to make the most of his limited reps. The 22-year-old has impressed with his pass-catching skills, but for now he's just an RB to keep an eye on.

    Headshot for Cedrick Wilson

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Cedrick Wilson Jr. was expected to be released or traded this offseason. Despite that, Wilson remains on the roster and says he'd like to remain with the organization. The Dolphins signed Wilson to a three-year, $22 million deal in 2022. He was expected to be a key part of the offense, but the Dolphins traded for superstar wideout Tyreek Hill during that same offseason. After that, Wilson lost his role on the team and was hardly involved last season. He finished with 12 receptions, 136 yards, and zero scores in 15 games in 2022. It's likely that the Dolphins would've cut Wilson, but he's owed $5 million guaranteed on his $7 million base salary in 2023. That being said, the Dolphins would probably prefer to trade Wilson, but clearly don't have too many interested parties. The expectation is that Wilson is going to compete with Braxton Berrios and Chosen Anderson for the No. 3 receiver role this upcoming season. It's hard to imagine Wilson having any fantasy value while in Miami.

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney could very well end up being the No. 1 wideout for this offense. The departure of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman leaves plenty of room for Toney to step up. Offensive coordinator Matt Nagy recently praised the 24-year-old wideout. Toney didn't do much with the Chiefs last season, but he's a former first round pick with a ton of potential. He played well in the postseason for the Chiefs and appears to be meshing well with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs don't have a ton of reliable options on offense outside of Travis Kelce. That means, Toney could end up being heavily targeted, which could result in a breakout campaign. Fantasy managers should consider Toney a sleeper option heading into next season.

He was expected to split the first-team reps, but now the rookie has a head start to the starting job. Fellow running back David Montgomery (leg) is sidelined, so Gibbs is getting all the starter reps. That being said, Gibbs is likely to be the Week 1 starter, which is only going to increase his fantasy value.

That's great news after the 24-year-old suffered a sprained MCL during last season's regular season finale. Luckily, it doesn't look like this is an issue that is going to cost Freiermuth any time this season. He finished with 63 receptions, 732 yards, and two touchdowns in 16 games last season. It might be difficult for him to beat those numbers with added competition at tight end. The Steelers drafted tight end Darnell Washington in the third round of this year's draft. The expectation is that both players will be involved, but Freiermuth might see a dip in production compared to last season.

    Headshot for Randall Cobb

    New York Jets wide receiver Randall Cobb inked a one-year deal with the team this offseason. With New York adding Aaron Rodgers in April, many felt the club signed Cobb solely to appease the future Hall of Fame signal-caller. However, while that may be partially accurate, Rich Cimini of ESPN reported that Cobb "is very much part of the receiver rotation." The 32-year-old entered the league in 2011 and has totaled 625 catches, 7,585 yards, and 53 touchdowns in 155 games, mostly with the Packers. He's battled injuries over the years and is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career. But Cimini labeled Cobb the "only pure slot receiver on the roster" while mentioning his longstanding relationship with Rodgers. Of course, Cobb's best days are probably well behind him. That said, if he can stay healthy, he could easily have a few productive fantasy showings in 2023-24. On the other hand, the veteran likely won't be a consistent performer, considering the Jets' depth at the position.

In 49 regular season games since entering the league, Lamb compiled 260 catches for 3,396 yards and 20 touchdowns. He had the best year of his career in 2022, so it wasn't shocking when Dallas picked up his fifth-year option in April. That said, Ezekiel Elliott and Dalton Schultz are no longer on the team. The Cowboys also added Brandin Cooks in the offseason, so the offense will certainly look different. However, Lamb is expected to remain the top producer for Dallas this season and has an excellent chance of being a top-five fantasy receiver.

    Headshot for Tom Brady

    Free-agent quarterback Tom Brady told Sports Illustrated that he won't un-retire. "I'm certain I'm not playing again, so I've tried to make that clear and I hate to continue to profess that," said Brady. "I've already told people that lots of times." He later commented that being involved as an owner is a "dream come true." Many have speculated that the 45-year-old could be back under center in 2023-24 as a member of the Raiders, especially if he successfully purchases a piece of the franchise. Talk about Brady's potential comeback picked up more steam after it was reported Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) hadn't passed a physical. That said, it sounds like the multi-time Super Bowl winner is done playing, although most won't believe it until he isn't on the field this season.

  • Justin Fields Was Last Year's Most Explosive Rusher

    Headshot for Justin Fields

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields topped's Nick Shook's list of most explosive runners from last year. Only Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has been more explosive on the ground in the last three seasons. The Bears lacked weapons offensively in 2022 and struggled because of it on offense, but Fields kept them afloat most of the time with his legs. His ability to create positive gains with his legs has already put him in the QB1 conversation heading into his second full season as the team's starter. The 24-year-old led the league with 1,143 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on the ground at his position on 160 attempts in 15 games. Fields also took 55 sacks and fumbled 16 times, though, so it wasn't all good. But if he can progress as a passer and decision-maker, Fields' fantasy ceiling is through the roof.

  • Kenneth Walker III Has Top-End Speed

    Headshot for Ken Walker III

    Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III provided the team with a reliable, powerful option in the backfield in 2022 in his rookie season, and he finished third in's Nick Shook's explosive score thanks to a big-play resume. He led all rushers in top speed reached with the ball in his hands at 22.09 mph, tied for third in gains of 10-plus yards over expected (15) and hit 20 mph on four carries on the year (tied for fourth). Walker averaged 4.6 yards per carry and topped 1,000 yards rushing while scoring nine rushing TDs in his first NFL season. The addition of rookie Zach Charbonnet to Seattle's backfield this year could take some work away from Walker, mainly in the passing game, but the 22-year-old should still be their lead back after his performance last year. Consider Walker a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 in fantasy.

  • Travis Etienne Jr. One Of The Most Explosive Backs In NFL

    Headshot for Travis Etienne

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. was sidelined his entire rookie year with a foot injury, but he made up for lost time in 2022 with his versatile skill set out of the backfield. He finished with 1,125 rushing yards (5.1 yards per carry) and five touchdowns while adding another 316 yards through the air. Etienne was one of the most explosive ball-carriers last year, mainly because of his ability to hit full speed with the ball in his hands. He tied for the second-most runs at 20-plus mph among qualified runners with six, trailing only Justin Fields. The 24-year-old also had 13 gains of 10-plus yards over expected. There's a chance that Etienne sees a bit of reduced workload in 2023, but even with that possibility, his playmaking abilities put him on the RB1/2 borderline in fantasy.

  • Lamar Jackson Remains Big-Play Threat On The Ground

    Headshot for Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson's injury issues have been well-documented over the last two years, as he's been limited to 12 games each year. He still managed to qualify for's Nick Shook's list of most explosive ball-carriers last year with 112 rushing attempts. Jackson wasn't among the leaders in top speed reached, but he still recorded 15 gains of 10-plus yards over expected, and his ability to pick up chunks of yards saw him break 10 yards on 27.7 percent of his attempts. The Ravens plan to dial back some of Jackson's designed runs in 2023 in an attempt to keep him healthy, but part of the reason he's such a dynamic talent at the QB position is ability to pick up chunk gains with his legs when plays break down. There is injury risk, but the 26-year-old remains in play as a top-five fantasy QB.

Taylor had successful arthroscopic debridement surgery on his right ankle in January, but he's still not ready to get back onto the practice field after also missing the final three games of the regular season in 2022. It's not really a surprise that the 24-year-old isn't practicing yet, and the Colts are fully expected to take things slowly with their No. 1 running back this offseason. However, he's expected to be fully ready for training camp at the end of July, barring any setbacks. Taylor isn't going to be the No. 1 overall fantasy pick in drafts this fall, but he should still be considered a top-five fantasy RB.

  • Dalvin Cook A Real Possibility For The Dolphins

    Headshot for Dalvin Cook

    The Minnesota Vikings seem all but certain to get rid of running back Dalvin Cook this offseason, and The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson writes that he is "a real possibility" for the Miami Dolphins if he's released. The Dolphins could also choose to trade for Cook, who is currently training in South Florida while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. The 27-year-old is coming off his fourth straight 1,000-yard rushing season, but injuries have been an issue in recent seasons and he also had a career-low 4.4 yards per carry in 2022. All signs point to Minnesota giving the reigns to Alexander Mattison as their featured back in 2023 and moving on from Cook, so he's becoming a very shaky RB2 in fantasy. If he were to land in Miami, Cook would be joining an already crowded backfield that includes Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr. and rookie De'Von Achane.

    According to Rams head coach Sean McVay, the team will continue to be smart with wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle). "I think we'll just take that a day at a time," McVay said. "Whenever he does come back, we'll be smart with how we kind of onboard him and get him back up to speed." McVay's stance is certainly understandable, as Kupp has been a productive wideout for years. He finished last season with 75 catches for 812 yards and six touchdowns in nine games before missing the remainder of the season because of a high-ankle sprain that required surgery. But assuming things turn out well, the 29-year-old should be one of the first receivers taken in fantasy drafts heading into Week 1.

    According to Falcons head coach Arthur Smith, tight end Kyle Pitts (knee) is expected to be ready for Week 1. However, Smith declined to provide further details. The 22-year-old began his career by catching 68 passes for 1,026 yards and a touchdown as a rookie. He also made the Pro Bowl. As a result, many had assumed Pitts would progress in 2022. Yet, he had only 28 receptions for 356 yards and two touchdowns before going down in Week 11 with a knee injury that resulted in surgery. That said, the 2021 first-round pick is an excellent bounce-back candidate, even more so if quarterback Desmond Ridder improves under center.

"It's been a long process, but everything is going good," Williams said. "I'm ready to get back out there." Of course, his optimism doesn't mean he'll be cleared to suit up for Week 1. But considering Williams displayed flashes of potential in his first two years in the league, he's still worth drafting heading into the 2023-24 campaign. However, anyone who picks him up should also entertain adding Samaje Perine, who may be in line for an expanded role early in the season.

    Free-agent defensive end Yannick Ngakoue is still searching for a new home, but has made it clear he's not going to play for a sub-par team. Ngakoue said that he wants stability and a legitimate chance to pursue a title. That's fair to say considering Ngakoue has bounced around a bit since being drafted in the third round by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2016. He spent his first four seasons of his career in Jacksonville. Since then, Ngakoue has played for four teams in three seasons. Last season, Ngakoue recorded 29 tackles, 16 quarterback hits, and 9.5 sacks in 15 games for the Indianapolis Colts. The 28-year-old still has plenty left in the tank and could be a legitimate boost to a contending defense.

He finished with 52 receptions, 414 yards, and two touchdowns in 13 games. The Panthers added multiple weapons over the offseason, including Hurst. He should have a significant role in the offense, so there's some TE2 appeal here.

The Colts are obvious going to be cautious this early into camp. Although, this sounds like a minor issue that should be gone long before training camp begins. It'll be interesting to see what kind of value Pittman has next season. He'll likely have Anthony Richardson under center, which probably means a lot of scrambles. Also, the Colts are likely to go run-heavy with Jonathan Taylor in the backfield. The targets should be there for Pittman, but he might turn into a WR3 in fantasy leagues depending on his role.

In fact, Perriman has totaled 20 receptions, 267 yards, and two touchdowns in 17 games over the last two seasons. Despite that, Perriman is a decent depth option for the Colts. He likely won't have a big enough role to carve out fantasy value, but he could be a nice fourth or fifth receiver.

Despite that, the Broncos do have big plans for Dulcich going forward. Head coach Sean Payton mentioned he sees Dulcich playing a "joker" role for the team next season. He said that role is basically a running back or a tight end with exceptional ball skills and then you can work matchups. This seems like it could be a Taysom Hill type of situation. That means, Dulcich could have increased value heading into next season, so fantasy managers should tuned for more updates as camp gets closer.

The 24-year-old former 12th overall pick in 2021 has been a Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro in each of his first two NFL seasons while racking up an astounding 26.5 sacks, but he wants to make plays all over the field this year instead of being obsessed with chasing the sack title. "I'm probably going to play like eight positions this year," Parsons said. He will continue to get his fair share of sacks, and moving around the formation this year could also increase his overall tackle total. Parsons' versatility will continue to make the Cowboys defense a coveted fantasy pick as well, and he should once again be one of the first defensive players taken in IDP drafts.

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Simi Fehoko has looked good in organized team activities for the second straight week and also saw plenty of run with quarterback Dak Prescott and the first-team offense. Fehoko is displaying sticky hands and has been running excellent routes, while his speed is deceptive for a player of his size. The 25-year-old will continue to battle with Jalen Tolbert, who appears to be making a second-year jump, for the No. 4 role behind CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks and Michael Gallup. There have been sets called in OTAs that see both Tolbert and Fehoko lined up opposite each other on the first team. It's nice to see Dallas developing some interesting receiver depth, but the reality is that neither Fehoko nor Tolbert will have much fantasy value in 2023 unless an injury occurs ahead of them on the depth chart.

    The Dallas Cowboys are making it clear they are looking for a veteran kicker to create training-camp competition with Tristan Vizcaino this summer, on the heels of saying goodbye to Brett Maher one year after what became a three-man competition at the position last year. Vizcaino is off to a solid start at organized team activities, nailing eight of his attempts to close out OTAs. His only misses came from 44 and 55 yards out. The 26-year-old was signed to the team's practice squad in mid-January after Maher famously missed four extra-point attempts in the playoff win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Vizcaino will have to prove he's the guy this summer, but if he wins the job, he could be a kicking streamer in 2023 in fantasy.

    The Miami Dolphins announced on Friday that they have signed running back De'Von Achane to his rookie deal after taking him in the third round (84th overall) of this year's NFL draft. Achane will be intriguing immediately in Miami's quick-strike offense because of his impressive speed and quickness out of the backfield, although it may take some time for him to be a staple in fantasy leagues. The 21-year-old lines up as the No. 3 running back right now behind Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr., who were both brought back for the 2023 season. Achane's quickest path to fantasy relevance will be as a pass-catcher, especially since the Dolphins loved to target their RBs through the air in 2022.

Meanwhile, a return to the Houston Texans, the team Hopkins began his career with, is not expected. In addition to the Browns, the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills were tied to Hopkins when he was still with the Cardinals, but it remains to be seen if the money will be right for them to sign the Pro Bowl wideout. Although the 30-year-old is no longer at his peak, he'd still easily be a top-25 fantasy receiver if he were to join the Browns, and Watson would also become more attractive as a low-end QB1 target.

Chandler spent most of his rookie season in 2022 on Injured Reserve. DeWayne McBride, a seventh-round pick this year who led the nation in rushing last year, is another intriguing prospect but has been rehabbing a minor injury this spring and has yet to take part in organized team activities. If Cook isn't on the team come training camp, Chandler figures to be the most likely backup to Mattison, but we'll have a better idea of how the Vikings backfield will shake out in another month or so.

    Headshot for Dalvin Cook

    Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook has rushed for more yards (5,993) than any in team history except Adrian Peterson (11,747) and Robert Smith (6,818), and he had his fourth straight 1,000-yard season in 2022 while also not missing a game for the first time in his career. He ripped off TD runs of 53 and 81 yards last year and had a top speed of 21.68 mph, the seventh-fastest speed of any ball carrier in 2022. However, he led the league with 62 carries that either lost or didn't gain a yard, and only 34.5% of his carries gained positive yards over expectation. With his injury history and high salary cap numbers the next two years, the Vikings have been planning to move on for some time now. Cook remains in Minnesota, but he's becoming an increasingly volatile RB2 investment in fantasy.

    Headshot for Alexander Mattison

    The Minnesota Vikings have been slowly transitioning away from running back Dalvin Cook and to Alexander Mattison, who was re-signed in March to a contract that guarantees him $6.35 million over the next two seasons. Mattison said he returned because of an "understanding how it's all laid out and how it's all going to work out." Head coach Kevin O'Connell recently lauded Mattison's demonstration of "that all-three-down kind of ownership that he's been capable of for a long time." Mattison is a physical inside runner, having averaged 1.91 yards per rush after contact, but only one of his 404 career carries has gone for more than 24 yards. All indications are that the Vikings would use Mattison as an every-down back if Cook is out of the picture, which would make him a steal in fantasy drafts at the moment.

  • Is Chuba Hubbard the Panthers short-yardage back? Fantasy Football Outlook

    Headshot for Chuba Hubbard

    The Panthers made some changes to their running back room this offseason by adding Miles Sanders and letting D'Onta Foreman walk in free agency. Chuba Hubbard, though, remains in the mix as the RB2 in Carolina. Hubbard, a former fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, is entering his third year in the NFL. He was a backup to Christian McCaffrey for one and a half seasons in Carolina in his first two years, and he will likely back up Sanders in 2023. But will he have a bigger role in the offense this season? Is he going to be the Panthers' short-yardage back? Let's take a look. Following the McCaffrey trade that sent the All-Pro running back to the San Francisco 49ers, Hubbard saw an uptick in playing time alongside Foreman. The two running backs co-existed as the RB1 in Carolina and split playing time. Hubbard ran for 432 yards on 89 carries (4.85 yards per carry) with two touchdowns and added 13 catches for 170 yards in nine games after McCaffrey's departure, while Foreman had 191 carries for 877 yards (4.59 yards per carry) and five touchdowns in 11 games during that same stretch. Hubbard only had 29 total yards in the first six weeks of the season as the backup to McCaffrey, but the 23-year-old back was a vital part of Carolina's rushing attack after he left, delivering 12-plus touches in four of the final six games of the season. In Week 16, he also ran for a career-high 125 yards against the Lions. Is Chuba Hubbard the Panthers' short-yardage back? It would be hard to imagine Hubbard as the lead short-yardage back in the Panthers' offense with Sanders there. The former Philadelphia Eagles running back figures to carry a large workload in Carolina and have an impact in the backfield in all aspects. Last season, Sanders had 13 carries inside the five-yard line, seven of which turned into touchdowns. Hubbard, on the other hand, had just one rush inside the five all year. His teammates Foreman (10) and Raheem Blackshear (2) had more carries in such situations. How the backfield completely shakes out depends on the team's willingness to get Sanders more work in the passing game. If he sees an uptick in receiving and opportunities on third down, Hubbard could function more as the short-yardage back this season. But with Sanders' efficiency last year in those close-yard situations, it might be difficult to bank on Hubbard as that type of back in 2023. As the RB2 in Carolina, he likely won't be fantasy relevant this season and should go undrafted in most leagues.
