Saints quarterback Drew Brees announced he will return for the 2020 season, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Brees also posted a message to his personal Instagram account indicating that he was returning. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brees remains under contract with the Saints, but there was some talk about the veteran quarterback retiring. He turned 41 years old in January. Now, it appears he will return to the Saints for at least one more season after throwing for 2,979 yards with 27 touchdowns and four interceptions in 11 games in 2019.

The Buccaneers have still not made a decision on whether or not they will retain QB Jameis Winston. (Source: Tampa Bay Times)

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Bruce Arians said that team remains undecided as they will continue to review what else happens around the league before deciding on Winston's future. While Winston was one of the most prolific fantasy signal callers of 2019, he struggled with turnovers and consistency on the field which makes him not as highly regarded as a real-life quarterback. His value will ultimately be determined by his role and team in 2020.

Antonio Brown told TMZ that he hopes to meet with NFL teams at the 2020 NFL Combine. (Source: TMZ)

Fantasy Impact: Brown continues to issue apologies regarding his behavior. While he could be too toxic for an NFL team to touch, he continued to show last season that he has a lot left on the field despite his off-the-field issues. It will be interesting to see if he's able to find a home in 2020, but at this point he's not someone that's more than a flier in dynasty or best ball leagues.

The have been "no movements" in contract talks between Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, according to ESPN. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This isn't surprising as there is still a lot of time for this to play out. There continue to be rumors that tie Brady to other teams, including the Chargers and Raiders. However, the Patriots return the odds-on favorite to retain the veteran signal caller. Brady's fantasy value will be largely impacted by the team he's playing for in 2020.

The Steelers continue to say that there is no timeframe on the return of Ryan Shazier. (Source: Pittsburgh Tribune Review)

Fantasy Impact: Shazier continues to try to return to the NFL following what was thought to be a career-ending injury. While he's made great strides to regain mobility, there's no indication at this point that Shazier will be ready to return to the team in 2020.

According to the Miami Herald, The Dolphins don't view former Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa as "a slam-dunk pick near the top the draft." Also, the team has been getting an "increasingly positive view" on former Oregon QB Justin Herbert.

Fantasy Impact: The thought has been in NFL mock drafts that Tua would be taken by the Dolphins at the No. 5 pick, as Miami needs a quarterback of the future. While this could be posturing, this would seem to indicate that the Dolphins could be more interested in Herbert than Tua. This situation will continue to change as we get through the NFL Combine and pro days, but it seems like both quarterbacks should be selected early in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cardinals are interested in keeping Kenyan Drake. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rapoport adds that the franchise tag is an option. Drake, who is a free agent, could also wind up signing a long-term deal with Arizona. Complicating the issue is David Johnson's massive contract, which makes him impossible to cut. Ultimately if Drake winds up with the backfield to himself then he will be a very exciting fantasy asset entering 2020. Stay tuned.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he "loves" Devonta Freeman but acknowledged the team's salary cap isn't "unlimited". (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons have some salary cap issues this off-season and releasing Freeman would certainly open up some financial flexibility. The 27-year-old played in 14 games last year, rushing for 656 yards and scoring six touchdowns. His status will be one to monitor this off-season.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said Friday morning that cutting David Johnson "is not an option". (Source: Darren Urban on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Keim added that in the backfield "you can't have just one back". Johnson performed considerably worse lat year than mid-season acquisition Kenyan Drake, which has led to questions about his place on the Arizona roster. Drake is currently a free agent, so perhaps the Cardinals will try to re-sign him and then trade DJ. Time will tell but there are obviously major fantasy implications here.

Myles Garrett will be reinstated from his indefinite NFL suspension. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Garrett met with the league office on Monday, and it appears the defensive lineman has been reinstated. The Cleveland Browns made a separate announcement, welcoming Garrett back to the team, and acknowledging that he is eager to put the past behind him.

Philip Rivers and the Chargers have agreed to part ways, and Rivers will become a free agent in 2020. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The writing was on the wall for the aging veteran, who led his team to a disappointing 5-11 record in 2019. Over the course of his 16-year tenure with the Chargers, Rivers earned eight Pro-Bowl selections. He compiled plenty of statistical accomplishments, passing for 59,271 yards and 397 touchdowns — both sixth-most in NFL history. He should draw interest from at least a few quarterback-needy teams, if not as a starter, then as a top-tier backup and locker-room leader.

Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer writes that free agent Nelson Agholor is "unlikely to return". (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Agholor had a rough season dealing with drops and injuries. He wound up catching just 39 passes for 363 yards. He's still just 26 years old, however, and not a bad reclamation project for a team in need of receiver depth.

Emmanuel Sanders says he is open to re-signing with the 49ers this off-season. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "At the end of the day, I enjoyed this season. I love the Niners organization, so we’re going to see what’s to happen" were Sanders' exact words. San Francisco doesn't have a lot of receiver depth so bringing back the veteran wideout would seem to be in their interest as well.

Eric Weddle announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Weddle, who spent the majority of his career with the Chargers, was first-team All-Pro in both 2011 and 2014. He also played for the Ravens from 2016-18 before spending this past season with the Rams. Weddle was the rare safety who seamlessly handed his coverage responsibilities while also being an excellent tackler.

David Newton of ESPN reports Ian Thomas is "first up" to replace Greg Olsen as Carolina's tight end next season. (Source: EPSN)

Fantasy Impact: Thomas, a fourth-round pick in 2018, has shown flashes of potential when Olsen has missed games the past two years. In nine games without Olsen, Thomas has caught 35 passes for 348 yards and three touchdowns. He could wind up being a popular sleeper over the summer.

Russell Wilson spoke openly about wanting Seattle's offense to be more up-tempo next season. (Source: Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: Seattle has been team #EstablishTheRun for as long as Wilson has been their quarterback. In 2019 they ranked 24th in situation-neutral pace. Despite that slow pace the offense ranked ninth in the league in points scored. If the Seahawks ever opened up their playbook to let Wilson shine a bit more it would do wonders for his fantasy value. It'll be difficult to project that happening until we hear the coaches express the same desire, however.

Jalen Richard has signed a two-year, $7 million extension to remain with the Raiders. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The deal includes $4.6 million in guaranteed money. Richard was going to be an unrestricted free agent before this signing but will remain with the team to move to Las Vegas. A strict passing-down back, this hurts Josh Jacobs' fantasy value more than anything else.

In an interview with Stick to Football, Jerry Jeudy claims that he plans on running a 4.3 40-yard dash at the Combine. (Source: Matt Miller on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jerry Jeudy is a complete wide receiver with his release at the line of scrimmage, route running ability, and great hands. The only question with him, in regards to being a top-tier prospect, is his overall athleticism. Can he be an RAC threat at the next level? If Jeudy comes out and runs a 4.3 at the Combine, that will answer that question for us. He'll be a top-10 lock in the NFL Draft.

Atlanta Falcons line backer Vic Beasley will not re-sign with the team for the 2020 season. (Source: Atlanta Falcons on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Beasley will now be a free agent and will have to test the waters to see what kind of a market he will have available for him. Beasley had a very inconsistent tenure with the Falcons as 2016 was his best season where he recorded 15.5 sacks. He never reached that mark again as he only had 28 sacks in his final three years with the Falcons after his impressive sophomore campaign.

Raheem Mostert rushed 12 times for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Niners' 31-20 Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs, adding a two-yard reception.

Fantasy Impact: The 27-year-old journeyman seemingly came out of nowhere to lead the 49ers' dominant rushing attack by the end of the year. The highpoint was his 220-yard, four-TD performance in the NFC Championship game versus the Packers. He also had a lot of success late in the regular season. San Francisco will continue to rotate their running backs next season but we certainly expect Mostert to remain fantasy relevant in 2020.
