  • Falcons Sign Ray-Ray McCloud To Two-Year Deal

    Headshot for Ray-Ray McCloud

    The Atlanta Falcons signed free-agent veteran wide receiver and returner Ray-Ray McCloud to a two-year deal worth up to $6 million on Thursday, according to a source. The Falcons have added McCloud and Darnell Mooney through free agency this week and Rondale Moore via trade to give the team much better speed and receiving depth behind No. 1 wideout Drake London. McCloud, 27, is known more for his returning skills on special teams and has just 90 receptions (134 targets) for 767 receiving yards and one touchdown in his six years in the NFL with the Niners, Bills, Panthers and Steelers. Buffalo's former sixth-round pick in 2018 out of Clemson will compete for a depth role at the receiver position in Atlanta this summer while also being a candidate to return kicks. He's off the fantasy radar.

  • Darnell Mooney Joining Falcons

    Headshot for Darnell Mooney

    Free-agent wide receiver Darnell Mooney is joining the Atlanta Falcons on a three-year, $39 million deal, reported by NFL insider Ian Rapoport. The 2020 fifth-round pick out of Tulane posted 81 receptions for 1,055 yards and four touchdowns with Andy Dalton and a rookie Justin Fields as his primary quarterbacks in 2021, but he has not matched the production since. In 2022 and 2023 combined, he totaled 71 receptions for 907 yards and three touchdowns. However, he's now set to play with the best quarterback of his career, as Atlanta secured Kirk Cousins on a four-year deal on Monday. Mooney figures to be behind Drake London and Kyle Pitts in the target pecking order, but Cousins has supported up to three, and sometimes four, fantasy-relevant pass-catchers in a single season. Mooney is now on the fantasy radar as a sleeper and could hold flex value in 2024.

  • Chiefs Interested In Darnell Mooney

    Headshot for Darnell Mooney

    The Kansas City Chiefs, among other teams, remain interested in free-agent wide receiver Darnell Mooney, who had a 1,000-yard season under Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy from their days with the Chicago Bears. Mooney put up a career-high 1,055 yards and four touchdowns on 81 receptions in 2021 with Nagy as the head coach, but he's played in just 27 games in two years since then, combining for 907 yards and three touchdowns. In 15 games last year, Mooney was pretty much invisible, catching 31 passes for 414 yards and a TD, so his fantasy stock is basically on life support, and his 1,000-yard season is looking like an outlier. However, a move to the Super Bowl-champion Chiefs would make Mooney somewhat interesting as a late-round flier in deep leagues. However, outside of Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice, Patrick Mahomes spread the ball around in last year's offense.
