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.

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. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

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.

Fantasy Impact: Kpassagnon has spent the last three seasons with the Saints, accruing 9.5 sacks, 10 tackles for loss and 65 tackles. Heading into his eighth NFL season, Kpassagnon will be 30 by the start of the season. He is entering the final year of his contract.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins was not present at the beginning of the team’s voluntary OTA program. (Source: Kelsey Conway on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The reason behind Higgins’ absence is pretty clear, as it’s likely tied to his desire for a second contract and his pending trade request. Higgins has yet to sign his franchise-tag tender or reach a long-term deal, the only one yet to do so this offseason. The saga will likely continue throughout the offseason, and once mandatory practices begin, his situation should be monitored heavily for its impact on fantasy in 2024.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase was absent from the start of the team’s voluntary OTAs. (Source: Ben Baby on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This part of the offseason is voluntary, and there are multiple reasons Chase could be absent. Most often absences are related to contracts, and Chase is expected to get his contract extension at some point soon, but he has been candid about wanting to wait for former teammate WR Justin Jefferson to sign his potential market-resetting extension first. At this point in the offseason, his absence should be of little concern.

Giants beat reporter Art Stapeleton suggested Tommy DeVito looks a lot closer to QB2 than QB3 early in camp. (Source: Art Stapleton on Twitter)

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.

Fantasy Impact: According to Mink, Cunningham is listed as a wide receiver on the Ravens roster. He made several catches at practice on Thursday. He'll look to earn a depth role at wide receiver for Baltimore out of camp.

Courtland Sutton has remained absent from Broncos voluntary OTAs. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Sutton is away from the team as he seeks a new contract. There had been trade rumors surrounding Sutton earlier in the offseason, but it appears he will remain with Denver. It is too early to be concerned about his status, but it is worth monitoring.

Broncos coach Sean Payton said Bo Nix is "farther along" than most would be in OTAs. (Source: DNVR Broncos on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Payton added that Nix has picked up the offense very quickly in camp. Nix is still competing with Jarrett Stidham and Zach Wilson for the Week 1 starting job, and it appears the rookie may have the edge for the starting job out of the gate.

Dawand Jones is reportedly expected to be close to a full-go at the start of training camp. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Jones suffered a torn MCL that ended his season early last year. He has been going through drills at OTAs and appears to be on track to be back to full health at some point during training camp. He appeared in 11 games last season, starting nine of them at right tackle.

Eagles beat reporter Jeff McLane said that Tyler Steen is working with the starters at right guard. (Source: Philadelphia Inquirer)

Fantasy Impact: Steen was the No. 65 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. He played in four games last season, but could earn a bigger role on the Eagles offensive line heading into this season.

Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson believes he found the source of his hamstring injuries, a muscle imbalance between his two legs, and is working toward remedying that going forward. (Source: Rob Demovsky, ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Watson's legs had a 20% imbalance in muscle mass, according to the results he found at the University of Wisconsin's School of Medicine and Public Health. Watson has worked toward getting the difference between 8-10%. On top of increasing his leg strength, Watson has time to fully heal during the offseason, and after missing 11 games in his first two years because of his right hamstring, he looks to play in full in Year 3.

Marvin Harrison Jr. has signed his rookie contract with the Cardinals. The deal is a fully guaranteed four-year contract worth $35.37 million with a $22.5 million signing bonus. (Source: Ari Meirov on X)

Fantasy Impact: Harrison looks to follow in his dad's footsteps as an elite wide receiver at the NFL level as Kyler Murray's top wide receiver option. Expectations are high for the 21-year-old rookie as he looks to make an immediate impact for the Cardinals that finished the past two years with a record of 4-13.

NFL reporter Gregg Rosenthal projects Trey McBride as the second-leading receiver for the Cardinals this season. (Source: Around the NFL on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McBride broke out last season for 825 yards receiving on 81 receptions. That came with Kyler Murray missing more than half the season. Marvin Harrison Jr. projects to be the No. 1 target right away for Murray, but McBride is in a place to be that No. 2 target in the passing game on this Arizona offense.

Rookie WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) will look to "ramp back in" next week for a return to the Chicago Bears' OTAs, says head coach Matt Eberflus. (Source: Zack Pearson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Odunze reportedly did some work at a walk-through speed on Thursday and will aim to return within the next week. The rookie WR has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the last week, and the Bears will look to ease him in as they prepare for a new-look offense in 2024.
