Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports the Colts are "vetting" Philip Rivers. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: This confirms a report from Pro Football Network that Rivers to the Colts "will happen". While it's still not official, it is beginning to seem increasingly likely that Indy will land the 38-year-old quarterback.

Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports the Packers are preparing to "make a run" at free agent tight end Austin Hooper. (Source: Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hooper broke out in 2019, catching 75 passes for 787 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games. The 25-year-old would certainly be an upgrade over the corpse of Jimmy Graham next year. Hooper is reportedly also being pursued by the Bears.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Mohamed Sanu requires off-season ankle surgery. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sanu suffered a high-ankle sprain shortly after landing with the Patriots mid-season and it likely had a big effect on his box score results. Sanu caught just 12 passes for 99 scoreless yards over his final five regular season games in New England. 2020 will be Sanu's age-31 season.

Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports the Packers are scheduled to meet with Aaron Jones to discuss a contract extension. (Source: Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jones will make a little over $2 million in the final year of his rookie contract this season. It'll be an interesting negotiation to follow after the 25-year-old totaled a whopping 19 touchdowns in 2019. Expect Jones to be a no-brainer, first-round fantasy pick this summer.

Michael Silver notes that the Raiders and Chargers are gearing up to make a run at free-agent Tom Brady. (Source: Mike Silver on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is not new news, as the Raiders and Chargers are among the teams that have been tied to Brady. Another notable team has been the Titans. The Raiders have praised incumbent Derek Carr but have left the door open for a change, while the Chargers clearly have a void following the departure of Philip Rivers and are a team that should be ready to rebound and contend following a disappointing 2019 season.

Evan Engram is still in a walking boot following surgery on his foot. (Source: New York Post)

Fantasy Impact: Engram's 2019 season was ended early due to the foot injury that required surgery. While he will miss time this offseason, he should be ready to go for training camp and full-go for the 2020 season. He'll continue to be one of the top fantasy tight ends in the league once fully healthy. He's currently the TE7 in our early expert consensus rankings.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters that he's not dismissing the possibility of re-signing free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant, adding "I’ve thought a lot about it in the shower.” (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This could just be a glib comment from Jones, but the Cowboys do have two pending free agent wide receivers that contributed a lot to their 2019 team in Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb. Of course, it's to be determined what ability Bryant still has, but he's only 31 years old.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah believes former Utah State QB Jordan Love is a "first-round quarterback all day long." (Source: NFL Network on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It appears Love could be a climber given his impressive NFL Combine showing. There are many concerns surrounding Love, including his turnover issues in college and the fact that he didn't play for a Power 5 Conference team. However, we've seen players make runs up the draft board by wowing in workouts, so it wouldn't be surprising to see another riser in this case. Love will likely not hold relevance outside of dynasty formats in 2020, and likely only those who start multiple quarterbacks.

The Rams have reportedly spoken with free-agent tight end Jordan Reed. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is the first team that has been tied to Reed, who was recently released by Washington. Reed continues to show a high ceiling, but his consistency has been non-existent, largely due to injuries. Given the nature of his head injuries, it's hard to count on Reed for much when it comes to fantasy football, but he could also certainly still deliver, at least while healthy, in the right scenario.

After medical testing at the NFL Combine, Moss was diagnosed with a Jones fracture in his foot and will undergo surgery. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thaddeus Moss, the son of Randy Moss, wasn't able to participate in any of the drills at The NFL Combine. We now know that this was due to a Jones fracture, which he'll have surgery on here shortly. Moss will drop a bit in rankings because of it, but don't forget about him in this TE class. He could make a big impact for fantasy football when he's back and healthy.

After undergoing medical testing at the NFL Combine, it was discovered that Van Jefferson has a Jones fracture in his foot. He will undergo surgery next week and will be sidelined 6-8 weeks. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Van Jefferson is an intriguing name towards the later rounds of Dynasty rookie drafts. A clean route-runner with great release off the line of scrimmage, Jefferson will be a target for many NFL teams. However, the Combine was a place to get a true sense of his athleticism, which some people have questioned. Now, we'll have to wait for a pro day...or maybe not at all.

Jason Witten isn't expected to return to the Cowboys in 2020. (Source: Calvin Watkins on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This isn't surprising as the team has other young options at the position. What is surprising is that Witten has said he hopes to continue to play, even if it's not for the Cowboys. There was some expectation he would move into a coaching role with Dallas after the 2019 season, but it appears the veteran isn't finished on the field. He isn't likely to be a major fantasy contributor regardless of where he lands this offseason. He's currently the TE36 in our early expert consensus rankings.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that he hopes to have both Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb back with the team in 2020. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cobb had his best season since 2015 last year with the Cowboys. Still, given the potential presence of Cooper and Michael Gallup, he's more of a fringe fantasy player in deep PPR leagues. He's currently the WR67 in our early expert consensus.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that he hopes to have both Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb back with the team in 2020. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cooper has said that he hopes to remain with the Cowboys for the long haul, but with the team's other contract situations (notably QB Dak Prescott) it remains to be seen if Dallas can retain the wide receiver. Cooper will continue to be a top target regardless of where he lands. He's currently the WR9 in our early expert consensus rankings.

While Bradley Chubb won't be ready for OTAs, he is expected to return for training camp, according to the Broncos. (Source: James Palmer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chubb's 2019 season ended early due to an ACL injury, but the hope is that he'll be able to return for the 2020 season and be full-go for training camp. The former fifth-overall pick only saw the field for four games in 2019 after accruing 12 sacks in 16 contests in 2018, his rookie season.

For the first time since September, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys discussed the quarterback's contract and potential extension. (Source: Todd Archer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: ESPN reports that the Cowboys continue to hold out hope that they will be able to sign Prescott to an extension and avoid using the franchise tag. Either way, it appears that Prescott will remain the Cowboys' starting QB in 2020. It's not clear which weapons will still be surrounding him, as top wide receiver Amari Cooper and tight end Jason Witten are both free agents. Prescott is currently the QB5 in our early expert consensus rankings.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that the team would consider trading wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Shanahan said that while Goodwin is too valuable to cut, the team would consider trading the speedster. Goodwin took a step back in 2019 before landing on IR in December. While Goodwin could return to fantasy relevance, he's currently the WR106 in our early expert consensus rankings.

According to Trevor Sikkema of The Draft Network, KJ Hamler out of Penn State tweaked his hamstring during training and will not be participating in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. (Source: Trevor Sikkema on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sikkema notes that Hamler reached 4.27 before getting hurt, which is absolutely flying. Hamler's going under the radar for fantasy football when he shouldn't be. Running a time like that on a national stage like the Combine would've brought him into the spotlight, but he remains one of the biggest steals in rookie ADP currently.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes 2019 was a wake-up call for wide receiver Dante Pettis. The team hopes for improvement this preseason or fears Pettis could fade away into irrelevance. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: Shanahan made it clear that he needs Pettis to step up unless he wants to be left behind. He's already been surpassed by 2019 rookie Deebo Samuel, and tight end George Kittle will continue to see a large target share. Pettis is an interesting flier entering 2020 drafts, but it's far from a given that he'll return to fantasy relevance this season.

49ers general manager John Lynch told reporters the team is committed to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo moving forward. “We’re extremely proud of Jimmy and committed to Jimmy moving forward. He’s our guy,” Lynch said. “The room for growth has not come close to hitting the ceiling.” (Source: Jennifer Chan on Instagram)

Fantasy Impact: This isn't surprising after the team advanced to the Super Bowl, making huge strides in Jimmy G's first full season under center. Still, Garoppolo was more of a game manager for the team, who often relied on their running game and defense to win games. As such, Garoppolo currently carries more real value than fantasy, as he's listed as the QB21 in our early expert consensus rankings.
