Fantasy Football News & Rumors

Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.

Nico Collins signs 3-year contract extension with Texans
Nico Collins has signed a 3-year contract extension worth approximately $72 million. This comes after his most successful season as a pro, tallying 80 catches for nearly 1300 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact

The Texans have now locked in one of their young stars at wide receiver for the next three years. The Texans currently have one of the strongest receiving trios in the entire league with Collins, Tank Dell and newly acquired Stefon Diggs. While this year may be tricky to parse out who will hit on any given week, Diggs is a free agent after the 2024 season, which could once again leave the majority of targets for Collins and Dell after this upcoming season.

Drake Maye, Patriots agree to terms on rookie contract
Rookie QB Drake Maye has agreed to terms on his four-year rookie contract with the New England Patriots, which will include a fifth-year option.

Fantasy Impact

Maye signed a four-year, $36.6 million contract, including a $23.4 million signing bonus. As the No. 3 pick, Maye will have expectations to be the future cornerstone of the Patriots franchise. However, his role should be monitored all offseason with the chance that QB Jacoby Brissett (one year, $8 million) could start for at least the beginning of the season while Maye develops.

Tommy DeVito considered ‘closer’ to QB2 than QB3 early in camp
Giants beat reporter Art Stapeleton suggested Tommy DeVito looks a lot closer to QB2 than QB3 early in camp.

Fantasy Impact

Stapleton added that it is still very early, but it is at least noteworthy. The Giants brought in Drew Lock this offseason who was likely considered to be the clear favorite to backup Daniel Jones, but it appears it could be some sort of competition between Lock and DeVito as the offseason progresses.
