Darrynton Evans has signed with the Indianapolis Colts after working out for them on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Details of the signing have yet to be released, but should Evans make the final roster, he’ll more than likely be the third string running back for the Colts. Jonathan Taylor is the sure fire starter, and Zach Moss and Deon Jackson are both more established in Indianapolis. But, the Colts have a new coaching staff so the door may be open for Evans to move up the depth chart.

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons continue to add on defense after signing Campbell to pair alongside new addition David Onyemata and veteran Grady Jarrett on the defensive line. The Falcons also brought in Jessie Bates at safety, showing a commitment to improve a defense that finished toward the bottom in most statistics in 2022. This could help point toward a potential offensive focus in the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact: Jones spent five seasons in Detroit where he caught 289 passes for 4,296 yards and 36 touchdowns. At the age of 33, he is now headed back to Detroit on a one-year deal worth up to $5 million. He joins as a depth piece alongside Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Williams and Josh Reynolds to provide more weapons for Jared Goff.

DeAndre Carter is signing a 1-year/$2.375 million contract with the Las Vegas Raiders according to NFL Insider Jordan Schultz. (Source: Jordan Schultz of The Score)

Fantasy Impact: Carter adds another receiving weapon for the Raiders as they look to fill the target void left by the departure of Darren Waller. Carter caught 46 balls for 538 yards and scored three touchdowns in his lone season in Los Angeles. Carter, whose 11.7 punt return average trailed only New England's Marcus Jones (min. 29 returns), should also be able to take over those responsibilities in Las Vegas and save some wear and tear on Hunter Renfrow.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Atlanta Falcons are signing WR Scotty Miller to a one-year deal. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Miller spent his first four seasons in Tampa Bay with the Buccaneers where he caught 74 passes for 924 yards and four touchdowns. Miller brings 4.39 speed to the Falcons who also brought in WR Mack Hollins in free agency. Atlanta is looking thin at WR heading into 2023, and Miller could see an increased role compared to his 24% of offensive snaps he saw in 2022.

According to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team, WR Michael Thomas “isn’t 100% healthy” following his toe surgery, but he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 season. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The New Orleans Saints are operating with caution in regard to Thomas who has dealt with injury on and off for multiple years. Thomas’ last fully healthy season came in 2019 when he won the Offensive Player of the Year award. Thomas had 171 yards and three touchdowns in three games in 2022, showing he can still be effective when healthy.

Irv Smith Jr. has signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, no details as of writing on how much the deal is worth. Joe Burrow gets another talented target in the passing game.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news for Smith and his future in the NFL. Cincinnati has seen several tight ends over the past two seasons perform well for real life and fantasy. CJ Uzomah and Hayden Hurst both ended their respective stints with the Bengals as PPR TE2’s. Injuries have hampered Smith’s value over the past several seasons but he could be a breakout candidate if he manages to stay healthy in an explosive Bengals offense.

49ers GM John Lynch said Monday that he feels Brock Purdy has earned the right to start for the 49ers in the 2023 season. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "I think Brock has earned the right with the way he played that he’s probably the leader in the clubhouse at that...if we were to line up, he’d probably take that first snap," Lynch said. Purdy led the 49ers one game shy of the Super Bowl this past season, but the 49ers still have a lot committed to Trey Lance. Purdy isn't expected to be ready for the start of the season, so it'll be Lance competing with Sam Darnold for the starting job in Week 1.

Lamar Jackson announced on Twitter this morning that he requested a trade from the Ravens on March 2 because he and the team are at an impasse in contract negotiations. (Source: Lamar Jackson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson has been openly upset about his contract situation since at least last season, and the Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on the veteran QB ahead of the deadline as the two sides remained far apart on a new deal. The non-exclusive tag means the Ravens and Jackson can still negotiate a long-term deal, but Jackson is also free to talk to all of the other NFL teams. If Jackson signs with another team, the Ravens can match any offer or choose to accept two first-round picks as trade compensation. Jackson, who has been negotiating without the help of an agent, apparently is hoping to find a trade partner. His redraft and dynasty value will be dependent on his landing spot, but he is likely to remain a top-end fantasy QB because of his running ability. As for Rashod Bateman, Mark Andrews, and Baltimore's other skill position players, this news makes their short- and long-term outlooks murky.

Bobby Wagner agreed to a one-year, $7 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks according to Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wagner returns to a Seattle franchise where the veteran linebacker played an immense role as part of the vaunted “Legion of Boom” defense under head coach Pete Carroll. Wagner should once again provide a valuable side-to-side option as part of a Seattle club looking to return to the postseason once again this upcoming season.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Cleveland Browns have signed WR Marquise Goodwin to a one-year deal. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Goodwin provides the Cleveland Browns with more speed, something the team has needed in its rotation outside of its depth pieces like Jakeem Grant and Anthony Schwartz. Goodwin's departure likely means the Seahawks could be in the market for a new WR3, and the Browns have now added Elijah Moore and Goodwin to a newly buffed passing offense.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, free agent WR Marquez Callaway is expected to sign with the Denver Broncos. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Callaway spent three seasons in New Orleans where he played under the Broncos' new head coach Sean Payton. In 2021, he had 46 catches, 698 yards and six touchdowns under Payton, all career-high marks. The Broncos have been reportedly shopping their WRs, which could potentially open a role for Callaway.

By Jordan Epp

According to his agent, K Zane Gonzalez was traded from the Carolina Panthers to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday. The teams swapped future draft picks in 2025. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez enters his sixth season in the NFL after being one of the most successful college kickers ever. The trade is also likely an indication that the 49ers will not be bringing back K Robbie Gould who is 40 years old and currently a free agent after six seasons with the team. Gonzalez has a career field goal percentage of 80.5% but nailed 90.9% of his kicks in 2022 in Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: Chark is joining a rebuilding Panthers’ offense that is set to have a rookie QB. The 26-year-old tallied 502 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 30 receptions with the Lions last season. Chark should be a solid flex option in 2023.

The Denver Broncos have signed former New Orleans Saints running back Tony Jones Jr. to a one-year contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jones reunites with former Saints head coach Sean Peyton in Denver on a one-year pact. The 25-year-old appeared in six games between the Saints and Seahawks last season, producing just 24 rushing yards on 10 carries while adding five receptions for 30 yards. The Notre Dame product has yet to record a touchdown in 18 career appearances as he looks to break through with his new team in 2023.

Right tackle Lane Johnson and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a one-year contract extension worth $33.445 million with $30 million guaranteed. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Phillies now have one of the best tackles in football under contract through the 2026 season. Johnson has not surrendered a sack over the last two seasons while starting 28 games over that time. The three-time first-team All-Pro earned an 83.2 grade from Pro Football Focus last season and will look to help steer the Eagles back to another NFC championship in 2023.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released veteran kicker Ryan Succop. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Succop appeared in all 17 regular-season games for the Bucs in 2022, connecting on 31 of his 38 field goal attempts while hitting 24 of his 25 extra-point attempts. The 12-year veteran has made 82.9% of his attempted field goals for his career and should garner interest on the open market this summer.

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard has signed his franchise tag. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys have until July 17 to negotiate a long-term deal with Pollard or he will be due $10.091 million for the 2023 season. Pollard took over as the team's lead back last season, racking up career-highs with 193 carries, 1007 yards, and nine touchdowns on the ground while catching 39 passes for 371 yards and three touchdowns through the air. With the team releasing Ezekiel Elliott this offseason Pollard will be in for a heavy workload in the 2023 season.

Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler underwent pectoral surgery after suffering an injury while training on his own. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pelissero notes that his four-to-six-month timeline gives Hamler a chance to be ready by training camp. The wideout has been ravaged by injuries in his brief NFL tenure, suffering a torn ACL in 2021 before being limited to just seven games -- and seven catches -- last season. The 2020 second-round pick will be behind the eight ball again to begin the 2023 season.
