Latest Player Updates

Odell Beckham Jr. (core) is expected to be ready for OTAs. (Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Fantasy Impact: Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in late-January. It was an injury that affected him most of the season. He has already been cleared for light workouts and should be healthier entering year two with the Browns.

Jenna Laine of ESPN reports the Bucs are considering a two-year extension for quarterback Jameis Winston. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The second year would be a team option for Tampa Bay, but Winston would be guaranteed $27 million this season - same as the franchise tag. The Bucs have also been linked to Philip Rivers this off-season so nothing can be considered official just yet.

Jerry Hughes recently underwent his second surgery of the offseason. The latest procedure was on his groin, while the initial surgery was on his wrist. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Hughes hopes to be back to full-go for the 2020 season now that he's completed both of these surgeries. He was certainly disappointing in 2019, but that may be able to be written off given the fact that he was playing through a pair of injuries that required offseason surgery. He has been a force in the past, and he's an interesting bounce-back candidate for IDP leagues in 2020.

The grievance filed by Antonio Brown against the Raiders over lost wages will be held in May. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brown will also likely have a hearing against the Patriots for similar reasons, citing the $9 million in signing bonus he didn't receive from New England. Brown is also expected to attend the NFL Combine to try and smooth things over with NFL teams, but it's unclear if he'll make much headway in that department given his off-the-field issues. He's someone to monitor this offseason since he could continue to be a fantasy producer if he's able to return to the field. That's certainly a big 'if' at this point.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor told reporters that the team wants and expects veteran wide receiver A.J. Green to return in 2020. (Source: NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: The Bengals could franchise Green if they're unable to agree to terms on an extension. While Green was initially disagreeable to the franchise tag, it seems like he'd be more willing to play through that at this point. There are still a wide range of outcomes here, and given Green's injury issues and previous production, he is certainly a volatile fantasy option at this point.

Jarvis Landry, who recently underwent surgery on his hip in early February, is expected to be sidelined 6-8 months following the procedure. (Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Fantasy Impact: Despite the timeframe, the Browns continue to say that they believe Landry will be ready at the start of the new season in September. That would have him back in seven months, so obviously if this takes him on the longer end of the timeframe to recover from, Landry is at risk of missing regular season action this year. This will certainly be a situation to monitor as redraft leagues approach, but he is also dinged in dynasty leagues following this news.

The Lions have released defensive lineman Damon Harrison.

Fantasy Impact: Damon "Snacks" Harrison was a big part of the team's improved run defense prior to 2019 after coming over the from Giants, but he struggled largely last season. He currently hopes to return for the 2020 season, but the interest he drives on the market will likely dictate whether he will suit up or not this year.

Jordan Reed was released by the Redskins on Thursday. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Reed missed the entire 2019 campaign due to a concussion he suffered back in the preseason. The move will save the Redskins $8.5 million. Reed just cleared concussion protocol last week and still wants to continue his NFL career. The 29-year old has a lengthy injury history and will look to latch onto another team.

The Seahawks told reporters that they expect Will Dissly to be ready for Week 1 of the 2020 season. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dissly tore his Achilles in November and required surgery which ended his season. He was off to a promising start for the Seahawks and fantasy owners. The team recently signed veteran Greg Olsen and has Jacob Hollister, who was decent in his own right in 2019, on the roster. This is a tricky situation for fantasy purposes, and it could be a committee approach at an already weak position in 2020.

Josh Rosen is expected to return to the Dolphins in 2020 rather than being traded over the offseason. (Source: Miami Herald)

Fantasy Impact: Given the struggles that Rosen continued to display in 2019, there is little indication that another team would be willing to give up enough for Miami to consider trading the former first-round pick. The Dolphins are also expected to spend a 2020 first-rounder on a quarterback, making Rosen once again a reserve player on a rebuilding team.

The Vikings trading wide receiver Stefon Diggs this offseason is considered a "long shot." (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Diggs has made his frustrations known with the run-first offense and team in general, though he continues to produce and Minnesota looks to again be a contender in the NFC. It's hard to imagine why the Vikings would trade Diggs since he's continued to produce. If he remains in Minnesota, he'll likely continue to be a volatile WR2 for fantasy purposes.

Demetrius Harris signed a one-year deal with the Bears. Harris was recently released by the Browns. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harris spent time with Bears head coach Matt Nagy when both were in Kansas City. Chicago figured to address their tight end situation this offseason given the fact that Trey Burton has failed to live up to expectations and Adam Shaheen continues to deal with injuries. Still, Harris isn't likely to be fantasy relevant.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero believes that Taysom Hill could receive a first or second-round tender from the Saints. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: That would require teams to sacrifice a first or second-round NFL Draft pick in order to sign Hill away from New Orleans. While Hill has proven valuable in Sean Payton's system, it's hard to imagine that another team would value Hill in the same way. As such, Hill's likely to return to New Orleans at this point in a role where he was fantasy relevant in 2019.

Category: Rumors

Kareem Hunt told reporters that he expects to remain with the Browns in 2020. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Given his likely cost to retain him, the Browns may not ultimately be his landing spot, especially with Nick Chubb already in town. Still, Cleveland could issue a first-round tender that would pay Hunt over $4 million in 2020. They could also sign him to a long-term contract, or they could retain him on the tender and trade him prior to the start of the season. While Hunt showed that he can have some fantasy value in Cleveland with Chubb, he would have an opportunity to return to RB1 status if he lands in the right situation this offseason. However, he's also recently admitted that he'd likely fail a drug test, so another suspension is not outside the range of possible outcomes.

Joe Flacco's agent told reporters that the QB currently plans to play in 2020, but he's not willing to risk his long-term health. (Source: Mike Klis on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Flacco, who ended the season on the sidelines while watching QB of the future Drew Lock take over in Denver, received encouraging initial reports on a recent MRI on his neck. However, he'll receive more opinions on the health of his neck and back as he continues to determine his plan for 2020. Whatever the case, Flacco will most likely enter the season as a reserve player, so he's not someone that's fantasy relevant at this point.

Jason Witten told reporters that he hopes to continue to play in 2020. If it were up to him, he would play his 17th season for the Cowboys. (Source: NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Witten seems to also be interested in coaching in the future, but he's currently set on returning to the playing field in 2020. In the interview, he recognized that he may need to play for another team beyond Dallas if he wants to return in 2020. Witten wasn't a consistent option at the TE position in 2019 for fantasy purposes, and that doesn't figure to change this year.

New Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt told reporters that he plans to change QB Baker Mayfield's footwork in the offseason to "help him." (Source: Jake Trotter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It was a rough year Cleveland and its quarterback, Mayfield, who was considered a top-five signal-caller for fantasy purposes entering the 2019 season. After his struggles last year, Mayfield currently sits as the QB18 in our expert consensus rankings. Given the talent surrounding him, Mayfield could prove to be a value at QB this season.

The Redskins exercised Adrian Peterson's 2020 option. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Peterson, who will turn 35 this off-season, will be back in Washington next year. The former MVP led the team in rushing last season but will likely be a backup to Derrius Guice in 2020. Washington coach Ron Rivera made a point to say Peterson's leadership is vital to the organization right now.

Greg Olsen signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Seahawks on Tuesday. The deal has $5.5 million guaranteed. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: After visiting Buffalo, Washington and Seattle this off-season, Olsen ultimately lands a one-year deal with the Seahawks. The 35-year old tight end caught 52 catches for 527 yards and two touchdowns across 14 games for the Panthers last season. Olsen will be Seattleā€™s number one tight end, and should see a boost in fantasy value catching passes from Russell Wilson in a fantasy friendly tight end offense.

The Falcons have re-signed Younghoe Koo to a one-year deal. (Source: Atlanta Falcons on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Koo hit 23-of-26 field goal attempts last year and, most notably, was one of the more impressive onside kickers in the league. Once again playing in a dome for an offense with plenty of exciting pieces, Koo should make a startable option in most fantasy leagues in 2020.
