Trade now official: Former Jaguars QB Nick Foles is headed to Chicago in exchange for the 140th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Foles will compete with incumbent QB Mitch Trubisky for the starting job in Chicago. Foles is also reunited with Head Coach Matt Nagy, with whom he played under in Kansas City in 2016 when Nagy was the offensive coordinator there. It’ll be interesting to see if Foles can wrestle the starting job away from Trubisky, but in either case, the QB competition is mutually beneficial to both players, and should increase the level of play at the position in Chicago.

Chris Godwin will change his jersey number from 12 to 14 since adding quarterback Tom Brady in free agency. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Godwin wore 12 as a rookie last year, but will relinquish that number to their new free agent who has worn 12 since being drafted 20 years ago. It's good to see that Godwin and Brady are starting off their new relationship amicably as he should be a top target for the future Hall of Fame quarterback next season.

Redskins G Brandon Scherff has signed his $15M+ franchise tender with the team and will return to Washington in 2020. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The three-time Pro Bowl G will be required to report to training camp should one start on time this season. The former 2015 first-round pick out of Iowa has been one of the best guards in the league for Washington, and he’ll continue to be a cornerstone of that offensive line for at least another year.

Ed Dickson released by Seahawks

Fantasy Impact: The 32-year-old tight end will most likely find a new home this offseason, but hasn't been relevant in fantasy football since his early years in Baltimore. After nine seasons as a pro, Dickson has turned into a blocking tight end and has never surpassed five touchdowns in a single season. Jacob Hollister filled in as the primary pass-catcher after Will Dissly went down with a season-ending injury and the Seahawks must be comfortable with that duo going forward. Regardless of where Dickson ends up this offseason, he'd be a huge reach in any fantasy leagues.

S Tedric Thompson is being released by the Seattle Seahawks, per source.

Fantasy Impact: A 2017 fourth-round pick out of Colorado, Thompson has played three seasons for the Seahawks. He was a full-time starter in 2018, but in 2019 his season was cut short after he tore his labrum. Thompson appears to be fully healthy heading into the 2020 season, and Seattle is releasing him as a salary cap move. Hopefully another team trusts that he’s healthy enough to play at a high level, as it could be difficult to get a physical given current league conditions.

Ed Bouchette of The Athletic said he "fully expects" the Steelers to draft a running back in the 2020 NFL Draft with James Conner entering the final year of his current contract. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: The team could certainly still extend Conner ahead of the new season, but they could also be content with drafting a potential replacement given the current landscape of running back contracts. Conner has dealt with injury issues through his years in the league, but he has shown the ability to post RB1-totals when healthy and receiving a full workload. If the team spends a high pick on a running back it could signal more of a split backfield, which wouldn't be good news for Conner's fantasy value. For now, Conner is the RB22 in our expert consensus rankings.

Veteran CB Dre Kirkpatrick is being released by the Cincinnati Bengals, per sources. (Source: Tyler Dragon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cincinnati’s former 2012 first-round pick out of Alabama is being released by the Bengals after eight productive years with the team. Kirkpatrick finishes his career in Cincinnati with 302 tackles and 10 interceptions in 99 games with the Bengals. Look for another team in need of secondary help to reach out to the veteran corner.

Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue is drawing interest from multiple teams around the league in a possible trade. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ngakoue has been posting many cryptic things on his social media accounts over the last couple weeks, giving teams the sense that he wants out of Jacksonville. The Jaguars, for obvious reasons, are hesitant to part ways with the fifth-year pass-rusher out of Maryland, who’s recorded a whopping 37.5 sacks in his four seasons with Jacksonville. Their asking price in return for Ngakoue is sure to be high given his production, and it remains to be seen if a team is willing to part ways with a high draft pick or two to acquire one of the league’s most dominant pass-rushers.

Former Cowboys and Patriots T Cameron Fleming has agreed to a one-year, $3.5M deal with the New York Giants, with $2M guaranteed. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The six-year vet was a fourth-round pick of the Patriots in 2014. He played four seasons in New England, adding depth to an offensive line that won two Super Bowls between 2014 and 2017. Fleming joined the Cowboys in 2018 and played two seasons for Dallas. He’s only started 25 of 72 total games in his career. He’s now on his way to New York and will be tasked with protecting young QB Daniel Jones and blocking for one of the best running backs in the game in Saquon Barkley.

G Austin Blythe has re-signed with the Los Angeles Rams on a one-year, $3.9M deal, with $3.5M guaranteed. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Nice payday for the former 2016 seventh-round pick out of Iowa. He was selected by the Colts in that draft, played one season with them before joining the Rams in 2017. He’s been a quality starter for Los Angeles and he’ll be coming back on a one-year deal to protect QB Jared Goff in 2020.

TE Eric Ebron has officially signed his two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ebron’s deal with the Steelers is now official, which is big news for a Pittsburgh offense that struggled last season. The playmaking tight end should see ample opportunities with a healthy Ben Roethlisberger under center for the Steelers this upcoming season after catching 16 TDs in his last two seasons in Indianapolis.

Rams CB Donte Deayon has re-signed with Los Angeles on a one-year deal. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The fourth-year corner out of Boise State played two years with the Giants before joining the Rams in 2019. He’s only played in 11 games in three seasons, but he’ll be back in Los Angeles in 2020 to add depth in the secondary.

Free agent CB T.J. Carrie has agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts for the veteran minimum, $300,000 guaranteed. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The former Browns and Raiders corner is headed to Indianapolis for the upcoming season. Carrie spent four years in Oakland prior to joining Cleveland in 2018. He hasn’t missed a single game in the last four seasons and has a combined 331 tackles in his six-year NFL career. He’ll add some much needed depth to the Colts’ secondary.

T Laremy Tunsil and the Houston Texans have engaged in preliminary talks on a new multi-year contract extension, per source. (Source: Josina Anderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tunsil is reportedly seeking $18-20M per year, which will eventually make him the highest paid LT in the NFL. The former Dolphins 2016 first-round selection out of Ole Miss came to Houston in 2019 in a trade that sent two first-round picks to Miami in exchange for Tunsil and WR Kenny Stills. Tunsil is a beast up-front, and the Texans obviously want to lock him in long-term to maximize the protection for franchise QB Deshaun Watson for years to come.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman says J.J. Arcega-Whiteside "needs to take a big jump" this season. (Source: Martin Frank on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Roseman admitted that "JJAW" was playing through lower body injuries last season but also indicated the pressure for him to perform in 2020. The rookie wideout failed to take advantage of increased opportunity when DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery were hurt last season. JJAW could be an interesting buy-low in dynasty leagues but is off the re-draft radar for now.


Jordan Howard (shoulder) confirmed he is 100 percent healthy. (Source: Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Howard got off to a nice start with the Eagles last season before a late-season shoulder injury slowed him down. Still just 25 years old, Howard signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Dolphins in free agency. One would still expect the team to bring in another back via the draft, however.

Ronald Darby is signing a one-year, $4 million contract with the Redskins. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Darby missed five games last season due to hip/lower body injuries. He totaled 37 tackles and two interceptions across 11 contests for the Eagles in 2019. Darby is expected to start at corner and improve a Redskins’ secondary which was in bottom half of the league against the pass last year.

Geronimo Allison has agreed to a one-year, $910K deal with the Lions. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Allison hauled in 34 receptions for 287 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games for the Packers in 2019. He will slot in as the Lions third wide receiver behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. Allison is currently 101 amongst all wideouts in the expert consensus rankings. The move to the Lions does not improve his fantasy value, and he is mainly a dynasty/deep-league stash.

Devin Funchess officially signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Packers. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Funchess agreed to one-year deal with the Packers earlier this week, but now it's official. The deal also includes a $1 million signing bonus, including up to $3.75 million in incentives. Funchess broke his collar bone in the Colts’ opener and ended up being placed on injured reserved, missing the rest of the season. He finished with three catches for 32 yards in his only game as a Colt in 2019. Funchess gives Aaron Rodgers a big target, and could see a small boost in fantasy value. The 25-year-old wide receiver is mainly a stash in dynasty-league formats.

Former Titans WR and kick return specialist Darius Jennings has signed a deal with the Los Angeles Chargers. (Source: Ed Wasielewski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jennings got his first NFL opportunity back in 2015 with the Cleveland Browns. He didn’t play in 2016, but has played the last three seasons with the Titans. He was primarily used as a return man in Tennessee, and in 2018, he led the NFL with a 31.7-yard kickoff return average. With all the weapons on offense already in place in Los Angeles, he’ll likely be utilized in a similar special teams role with the Chargers.
