Fantasy Impact: Hubbard, who took over the RB1 role from Miles Sanders midseason, started all 12 games for the Panthers after Week 6. He averaged 62.3 yards per game as a starter, including five total touchdowns and five games with 80+ rushing yards. The Panthers are set to head into 2024 with Hubbard, who is entering his fourth season, and Sanders, who will be in Year 2 of his big contract and will become cuttable after 2024.

New York Jets GM Joe Douglas confirmed that the team has permitted QB Zach Wilson's camp to communicate with teams and seek out potential trade offers. (Source: Zack Rosenblatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wilson's time in New York has been rough, but it seemed to be at an all-time low when Wilson was benched midseason for Tim Boyle. The former No. 2 pick has not lived up to his expectations but seemed to have a solid relationship with QB Aaron Rodgers, who tore his Achilles on the first drive of last season. Wilson may opt for a change of scenery, hoping to potentially revitalize his career.

The Bengals have extended a tender to Jake Browning. (Source: Jay Morrison on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Browning will remain on the team next season backing up Joe Burrow. He impressed in flashes across seven starts this past year, throwing 12 touchdowns to seven interceptions and leading them to a 4-3 record. He is someone the Bengals know they can trust if Burrow ever had to miss time.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been released by the Kansas City Chiefs. The move saves the team $12 million in salary cap space. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: MVS being a cap casualty is not surprising. After the Chiefs brought him in via free agency two years ago he never lived up to his contract cost, catching a combined 63 passes for 1002 yards and three scores the regular season since 2022. The move undoubtedly signals future moves by Kansas City to revamp their wide receiver room. MVS will now try to find a home elsewhere.

When asked if Jamal Adams is in the plans of new coach Mike Macdonald, Seahawks GM John Schneider allowed there a chance for him not to be. (Source: Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: “Is he in his plans?’’ Schneider said. “Yeah, I mean, we’ll find out. We’ll keep working through things. … We’re still trying to figure all that out.’’ The Seahawks are able to save quite a bit against the cap by releasing Adams later in the offseason, so it is something they may consider following some injury-riddled seasons in Seattle. If he is released, Adams shouldn't have much of a problem finding a new team.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said QB Geno Smith is the starter “until he’s not.” (Source:

Fantasy Impact: It is a new coaching staff in Seattle under Mike Macdonald. Smith agreed to restructure his contract last week to open up some cap space for the Seahawks. It appears Smith will be the quarterback heading into the season for Seattle, but it is possible they draft someone in April to sit behind him.

Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin said the team doesn't plan on trading Tee Higgins. (Source: Charlie Goldsmith on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "Really simple. He's a good player. We want to keep him. We have resources to do that," Tobin said. He added that they're a better team with Higgins. The Bengals will run it back with the trio of Higgins, Ja'Marr Chase and Joe Burrow.

Chiefs GM Brett Veach said the goal is to get a long-term deal done with Chris Jones. (Source: Jonathan Jones on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "Just like last year our goal and intent is hopefully to get something long term done," Veach said. After the two sides couldn't get a deal done last season, Jones held out before returning to Kansas City after Week 1. It seems more likely a deal will get done this offseason.

The Buccaneers are reportedly actively working towards re-signing wide receiver Mike Evans. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Laine added that the Bucs are willing to do a deal even if it puts a strain on their finances to do so. "We're going to do whatever we can to make sure that he's a Buc," general manager Jason Licht said. The Bucs are also working on bringing back Baker Mayfield as well.

Raiders GM Tom Telesco emphasizes that WR Davante Adams is not going anywhere, despite some trade rumors. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "He's a Raider," Telesco said. Adams appeared to want out of Las Vegas with the previous coaching staff, but he may have new feelings now. The quarterback situation remains something to monitor for the Raiders this offseason.

Vikings GM Kwesi Adofo-Mensah said trading Justin Jefferson is "not something that has crossed his mind." (Source: Ben Goessling on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: There have been rumors across social media about Jefferson potentially being traded this offseason, but Adofo-Mensah shot those rumors down. The big question for Jefferson will be how Minnesota addresses the quarterback situation this offseason.

Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said he believes Kirk Cousins wants to return to Minnesota and they're going to try to make it happen. (Source: Benjamin Solak on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cousins is set to enter free agency coming off a torn Achilles. His status remains up in the air for Week 1, but a return to Minnesota seems very possible for Cousins.

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said he expects Jameson Williams to compete for a full-time starting role ahead of the 2024 season. (Source: Pride of Detroit on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "By the end of the year, we really felt like he was coming into his own," Campbell said. Williams saw his playing time increase over the latter part of last season after he was suspended the first month of the year.

Falcons GM Terry Fontenot said Kyle Pitts is healthy this offseason. (Source: Zach Klein on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fontenot added that the team still has a lot of faith in Pitts. New Falcons OC Zac Robinson has said he expects Pitts to be a key part of the Falcons passing attack. It is also worth noting that Atlanta released Jonnu Smith, who saw 70 targets last season.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he is crossing his fingers that Odell Beckham returns. (Source: Ryan Mink on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harbaugh added that he is "crossing his finger" that it happens. Beckham caught 35 passes for 565 yards and three touchdowns across 14 games last season with Baltimore.

John Harbaugh said Rashod Bateman is going to get the ball "a lot more" next season. (Source: Ryan Mink on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bateman played a career-high 16 games last season, but he wasn't ever a huge part of the offense. He'll be someone to monitor throughout the offseason ahead of fantasy drafts.

Broncos GM George Paton said he hasn’t been contacted by any teams about trading for Russell Wilson. (Source: James Palmer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is likely going to be tough for Denver to trade Wilson due his contract. If it comes down to it, he may end up being released. Wilson has said he wants to return to Denver, but it doesn't appear the Broncos feel the same way.

Bears GM Ryan Poles suggested Justin Fields could be traded before free agency begins on March 13. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Poles said he "doesn’t think it would be right not to trade Fields" before free agency begins. As of now, it appears the Bears will be moving on from Fields and drafting Caleb Williams in the NFL Draft in April. The Falcons and Steelers are two teams who have been linked to Fields.
