Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports Philip Lindsay (wrist) wouldn't discuss whether or not he'll be ready to participate in OTAs. (Source: Nicki Jhabvala on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lindsay is still in a cast after undergoing wrist surgery towards the end of 2018. Even if he misses OTAs he should ultimately be fine for training camp. Still, any time Lindsay misses could be valuable for Royce Freeman. It'll be important to monitor what coaches are saying about Lindsay and Freeman leading up to fantasy drafts.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic is reporting that Patriots safety Patrick Chung is set to have multiple surgeries over the next month. Chung is scheduled for surgery on his broken arm Thursday and then will have a procedure on his shoulder in about three weeks. (Source: Jeff Howe)

Fantasy Impact: Chung broke his arm in the second half of Sunday’s Super Bowl victory over the Rams. The shoulder is something he has been dealing with throughout the season. The shoulder surgery is expected to keep him out of OTAs but he should be good-to-go for training camp.

Ralph Vacchiano of SNY suggests Eli Manning will open the 2019 season as New York’s starting quarterback. (Source: SNY)

Fantasy Impact: Manning is due a $23.2 million cap hit, which is a big cost for someone of his current ability. One would have to imagine the Giants at least draft a QB this year. Manning had plenty of talent around him last season and still looked as bad as he ever has.

A.J. Green (toe) has removed his walking boot for good. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: It’s a step in the right direction for Green after he finished the 2018 season on IR. Green might not be ready to practice until early this summer, but as of now it looks like he’ll be ready for training camp. There’s reason to believe the Bengals offense can turn it around under new head coach Zac Taylor. Green will play next season at 31 years old.

The Cincinnati Bengals are hiring Rams QB coach Zac Taylor to be their next head coach. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The hiring was delayed until the Rams' post-season run came to an end. The 35-year-old Taylor is a bit of a risky hiring considering he doesn't have much top level experience. He'll be tasked with getting the most out of Andy Dalton in 2019.

The Miami Dolphins announced they are hiring former Patriots DC Brian Flores as their 13th head coach in franchise history. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Most teams hired offensive minded coaches this off-season, but the Dolphins are taking another shot at a Bill Belichick disciple. Flores is just 37 years old and is coming off a Super Bowl run with New England. He'll begin rebuilding the Dolphins in 2019.

Aaron Rodgers says he will be able to fully participate in Green Bay's off-season program. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers was able to avoid undergoing surgery on his knee sprain he suffered in Week 1. The 35-year-old also added he is having no ill effects from the concussion he suffered in Week 17. Rodgers wasn't his usual elite self in 2018, but there's reason to think he can bounce back under a new coaching staff this upcoming season.

The Los Angeles Rams D/ST totaled one sack and one interception versus the Patriots en route to a 13-3 loss in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams intercepted Brady on New England's first drive of the game but weren't able to capitalize. They held the Patriots offense in check most of the game until Brady led a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. The Rams D/ST will likely once again be a useable asset in 2019 fantasy leagues.

Greg Zuerlein converted 1-of-2 field goal tries in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams went on to lose to the Patriots 13-3. Los Angeles' offense wasn't able to get much going, which limited Zuerlein's chances. He missed a long FG try with under a minute to go, but the Rams likely wouldn't have come back to win even if he had made it.

Gerald Everett did not catch his lone target in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: Everett had totaled 50 yards in the NFC Championship two weeks ago but remained inconsistent in box score results last night. Everett will enter 2019 as a TE2 in fantasy.

Jared Goff completed 19-of-38 passes for 229 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception as the Rams lost to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: It's actually a pretty similar line to what Tom Brady posted. The difference was Brady led New England on a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. The 24-year-old Goff was also without a fully effective Todd Gurley in this game, but the Patriots' defense was simply dominant. The Rams will likely learn from this game and should have a chance to get back to the Super Bowl within the next couple of years. Goff will enter 2019 fantasy drafts as a low-end QB1.

Josh Reynolds caught three passes for 28 yards as the Rams fell to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds never really got going once Cooper Kupp was lost for the year, and it definitely impacted the Rams offense. Reynolds is a decent dynasty asset but doesn't offer much value in re-draft leagues heading into 2019.

Robert Woods caught five passes for 70 yards as the Rams lost to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: It's a disappointing finish to the season for a Rams offense that looked unstoppable at times this year. Woods did his part, however, posting career highs in receptions, yards, and TDs. Set to turn 27 this off-season, Woods enters 2019 fantasy drafts as a safe WR2.

Brandin Cooks caught eight passes for 120 yards as the Rams lost to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: Cooks nearly caught a go-ahead touchdown late in the game but had it poked away by a Patriots defender at the last minute. Still, the 25-year-old was one of the only Rams skill players to show up last night. Cooks posted a career-high 1,204 receiving yards in his first year in Los Angeles this season. He's an upside WR2 heading into 2019 fantasy drafts.

C.J. Anderson rushed seven times for 22 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards as the Rams fell to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: Neither Anderson nor Todd Gurley were able to get going in this one. The New England defense simply played very well. Still, Anderson was a dynamo down the stretch for Los Angeles. He is set to hit free agency but there are reports the Rams want him back. It's unclear if Gurley was healthy throughout these playoffs.

Todd Gurley told reporters after Super Bowl 53 that his knee is fully healthy. (Source: Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: Gurley received and MRI after Week 15 but it didn't show anything to be concerned about. It's hard to imagine Gurley was fully healthy this post-season. He ran the ball 10 times for 35 yards versus the Patriots, adding one catch for a one-yard loss. It remains to be seen if the Rams will bring back C.J. Anderson in free agency. Gurley's disappearance this winter is an off-season storyline that won't get away quietly.

The New England Patriots D/ST sacked Jared Goff four times while also forcing an interception as the team beat the Rams 13-3 in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Impact: This was quite the turnaround for a New England defense that looked downright slow at times this season. They stepped up in the playoffs, however. They held each of the Chiefs and Rams to zero first half points the last two weeks. As usual a Bill Belichick-led team simply got better as the year went on.b

Stephen Gostkowski converted 2-of-3 field goal tries and 1-of-1 PAT attempts in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Gostkowski missed a field goal try in the first quarter that was looming large with both teams struggling to put points on the board. He rebounded with two makes down the stretch, however. Gostkowski will once again be one of fantasy's top kicking options in 2019.

Cordarrelle Patterson rushed twice for 7 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards as the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact: Patterson was mainly used as a running back this season, whether he was lining up in the I-formation or receiving jet sweep handoffs. He had some nice moments throughout New England's march to their sixth Lombardi trophy this year. Patterson will enter free agency at 27 years old.

Philip Dorsett was not targeted in the Patriots' 13-3 Super Bowl win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: New England was leaning on the run game and short passes to Julian Edelman in this one, which didn't leave room for Dorsett to get involved. Dorsett will now be a free agent and it remains to be seen if the Patriots want him back.
