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 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.

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has narrowed his free-agent suitors to the Eagles, Jets, and Bengals. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Schefter also notes in his Tweet that Elliott hopes to make his decision by the end of next week. The Cowboys released Elliott after he rushed for a career-low 876 yards in 2022 although he still capitalized near the end zone with 12 touchdowns on the season. Two two-time NFL rushing leader is likely best suited for short-yardage situations moving forward.

The New York Giants signed WR Jamison Crowder to a one-year deal. (Source: Josina Anderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Giants have Wan'Dale Robinson and Parris Campbell on the roster who have experience playing in the slot, so they're a bit crowded in that department. Crowder figures to be a depth receiver for a Giants offense that dealt with a number of injuries last season.

Free agent tight end Foster Moreau is stepping away from football after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. (Source: Foster Moreau on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Moreau made the announcement via his personal Twitter account after being diagnosed with cancer following a physical conducted by the New Orleans Saints medical team. The 25-year-old appeared in 15 games for the Las Vegas Raiders last season, catching 33 passes for 420 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Moreau didn't announce his retirement but his NFL future certainly remains up in the air.

According to Andrew Schultz of theScore, the Las Vegas Raiders are signing TE Austin Hooper to a one-year deal. (Source: Andrew Schultz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hooper will come in to help replace some of the snaps lost when the Raiders moved Darren Waller to the Giants. Alongside TE OJ Howard, Hooper can add depth at the position for new QB Jimmy Garoppolo. This also opens up the door for Chig Okonkwo in Tennessee and likely means free agent TE Foster Moreau will not return to Vegas in 2023.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the New York Jets are trading WR Elijah Moore and a third for a second-round pick. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Moore had requested a trade during his sophomore season in the NFL, and even though the issue seemed to have been resolved, he eventually got his wish. The Jets acquired a second-round pick in exchange for their third-rounder as well, giving them the ability to add further assets. Cleveland gets a dynamic WR to pair alongside Amari Cooper, much needed for a struggling passing attack.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, QB Russell Wilson underwent arthroscopic knee surgery following the 2022 season to fix an issue that had nagged for multiple years. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wilson is expected to be ready for OTAs and at full health for the 2023 season, according to Rapoport, and he is already back to working out. Wilson struggled heavily in his first season in Denver, completing a career-low percentage of passes, touchdowns and adjusted yards gained per pass attempt. With health on his side, and a new head coach in Sean Payton, Wilson, who was fantasy QB16, could maybe vault himself back into the QB1 range.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, RB D'Ernest Johnson and the Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed on a one-year deal for the 2023 season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Johnson came onto the scene in his third season when he started two games for the Browns and had 671 scrimmage yards with three scores in 2021. He gives the Jaguars depth alongside RBs JaMycal Hasty and Snoop Conner and rotational play behind RB Travis Etienne. Johnson averaged over 5 yards per carry across his four seasons in Cleveland.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, WR Mecole Hardman has signed a deal with the New York Jets. It's a one-year deal for the former Chief. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hardman helps fill the role left when the Jets let go of WR Braxton Berrios, operating as a slot WR, gadget guy and return man. A one-year deal makes sense too, especially if the Jets see themselves in a winning window right now. Hardman averages roughly 13 yards per touch and has 19 career all-purpose touchdowns, providing the Jets with further versatility in a very deep WR room.

According to Todd Archer of ESPN NFL Nation, the Dallas Cowboys have signed RB Ronald Jones II to a one-year deal. (Source: Todd Archer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jones struggled to see the field in 2022 after joining the Kansas City Chiefs' stable of RBs, making just six appearances with 18 total touches. The 25-year-old RB had years of production with the Buccaneers, totaling 2,745 scrimmage yards in four seasons. Jones will likely operate as the team's backup behind Tony Pollard, and he goes back to the Dallas-Fort Worth area where he attended high school.

According to his agents, WR Isaiah McKenzie has signed a deal with the Indianapolis Colts. (Source: SportsTrust Advisors on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McKenzie accrued a career-high 478 yards and five touchdowns in 2022 with 51 touches. The 27-year-old playmaker saw an increased role in the Bills’ offense but was released. In Indianapolis, McKenzie can bring dynamic value as a slot receiver, a gadget guy or as a return man but likely won’t operate any higher than as the team’s WR3 behind Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce.
