Fantasy Football Rumors & News

Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.

Drake Maye potential trade up target for Giants
The Giants are rumored to be interested in trading up in the 2024 NFL Draft to acquire Drake Maye. They currently hold the sixth overall pick and are looking to move to the third or fourth pick overall to draft Maye.

Fantasy Impact

Should the Giants acquire Maye, it is possible he could be the Giants’ starter going into Week 1. The Giants also have the option to help further develop the soon-to-be rookie from North Carolina and have him sit behind Daniel Jones for one year. Regardless if Maye is the starter in Week 1 for the Giants, he would be a risky fantasy pick in 12-team, 1QB leagues due to the substandard offensive ecosystem surrounding him.

Justin Fields fifth-year option not getting picked up
The Steelers are not expected to pick up the fifth-year option of Justin Fields‘ contract. He will be entering the final year of his contract next season.

Fantasy Impact

After being traded by the Bears earlier this offseason, 2024 will be a make-or-break year for Fields. If and when he beats out Russell Wilson for the starting job, he will be extremely fantasy relevant due to his rushing prowess.

Jayden Daniels hopes to land with Raiders or Vikings
Jayden Daniels hopes to land with either the Las Vegas Raiders or the Minnesota Vikings. He has connections with Raiders coach Antonio Pierce who was with him at Arizona State, on the other hand, playing under Kevin O’Connell sounds appealing.

Fantasy Impact

Pairing Daniels with one of Davante Adams or Justin Jefferson would be great for fantasy managers, but in all likelihood, the Washington Commanders are staying pat and could select him. If they don’t, New England could as well, but rumor has it that they may trade back, opening the door for teams like Minnesota to move up and get him. A lot will be decided in the next few hours, including Daniels landing spot, be it a preferred team or not.
