Recent Transactions

Devin Singletary signed a one-year, $3.75 million deal with the Houston Texans. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Singletary figures to likely backup Dameon Pierce in the Texans backfield. Pierce should still lead the way in terms of touches, but there is a chance Singletary sees the field more than any backup did for most of last year behind Pierce. This is potentially a messy situation on what is likely going to be a below average offense, but Pierce could still offer mid-end RB2 value from an efficiency standpoint. There is always risk with any running back drafted on day three of the NFL Draft long-term.

Dalton Schultz has signed a one-year deal with the Houston Texans. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Schultz can make up to $9 million in the deal. He struggled at times last season when Dak Prescott was sidelined which is worth noting. He'll likely be the safety blanket for whoever is undercenter (likely a rookie) for the Texans this season. Schultz fantasy upside takes a hit going from Dallas to Houston, but he could still hold value at a shallow tight end position.

The Las Vegas Raiders are signing TE O.J. Howard. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Howard has the chance to play a big role in the passing game for the Raiders after trading Darren Waller, while Foster Moreau remains a free agent. The former first-round pick has yet to top 600 receiving yards in a season but he could do so this upcoming season, especially if the Raiders don't bring in another receiving tight end.

The Arizona Cardinals signed WR Zach Pascal to a two-year deal. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pascal will reunite with new Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon in Arizona. He is more of a depth wide receiver for the Cardinals. He won't hold too much fantasy value.

The Buffalo Bills signed WR Trent Sherfield. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sherfield posted career-highs in catches (30), yards (417) and touchdowns (2) last season with the Dolphins. He is capable of moving all over the line in the slot and out wide. If he enters the season as the Bills No. 3 wide receiver, he could offer some fantasy value in deeper leagues.

The Carolina Panthers are signing veteran WR Adam Thielen to a three-year contract, according to Pat McAfee. (Source: Pat McAfee on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thielen, a Minnesota native, was released by the Vikings, setting him up to join the second team of his career. After nine years, Thielen will join a Carolina team that’s been adding new names to the offense to prepare whoever they likely draft at No. 1. Thielen has 534 catches and 55 touchdowns in his career and can be a veteran figure for the young Panthers.

The Dallas Cowboys are in the process of trading for Houston WR Brandin Cooks. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter.)

Fantasy Impact: Cooks had previously stated that he hoped the Texans would trade him this offseason, and it appears he will get his wish. In his nine-year career, Cooks has tallied 630 receptions for 8,616 yards and 49 TD. Assuming the trade occurs, the 29-year-old's fantasy value will improve, moving from the QB carousel in Houston to Dak Prescott.

Cooper Rush and the Cowboys have agreed to a two-year deal worth a maximum of $6 million. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Rush will return to the Cowboys and serve as the backup to Dak Prescott. The 29-year-old kept the Cowboys’ season afloat in 2022, registering a 4-1 record while Dak Prescott was injured. Fantasy managers should not expect much from Rush, unless Prescott were to miss any time during the 2023 season.

Mike Gesicki and the Patriots have agreed to terms. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots moved on from Jonnu Smith earlier in the week and are bringing in Gesicki to pair with Hunter Henry. The 27-year-old former Dolphin registered 362 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 32 receptions last season. Gesicki should return fantasy value in a revamped Patriots’ offense.

Marcus Mariota and the Eagles have agreed to a one-year contract worth up to $8 million. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Mariota will join the Eagles as the backup to Jalen Hurts. With both quarterbacks having similar skill sets, Mariota is a perfect option to have in the event Hurts has to miss any time due to an injury. Mariota tallied 2,219 yards, 15 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 13 games with the Falcons in 2022.

D'Onta Foreman and the Bears have agreed to terms on a one-year, $3 million contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Foreman will head to the Bears and should push Khalil Herbert for playing time. The 26-year-old had a tallied career highs last season in 17 games with the Panthers. Foreman registered 914 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 203 carries. Foreman will carry fantasy value in 2023 either as a starter or a handcuff to Herbert.

Darius Slay and the Eagles have agreed on a two-year extension through 2025. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It was announced earlier in the week that the team decided to release Slay after granting him permission to seek a trade. Ultimately, the Eagles have decided to keep the star corner which will help their D/ST be fantasy viable in 2023. The veteran corner tallied 55 tackles and three interceptions in 17 games last season.

Drew Lock and the Seahawks have agreed to a one-year deal with $4 million. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Lock will return for his second season in Seattle and should remain the backup to Geno Smith. The 26-year-old did not see the field last season and is only fantasy viable should Smith miss any time in 2023.

Robert Tonyan and the Bears have agreed on a one-year contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Tonyan will stay in the NFC North as he moves from Green Bay to division rival Chicago. The 28-year-old tight end tallied 470 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 53 receptions last season. Fantasy managers should expect Tonyan and Cole Kmet to see the bulk of the snaps at tight end in 2023.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Indianapolis Colts are bringing in QB Gardner Minshew II on a one-year deal worth $3.5 million. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Minshew spent his last two seasons playing backup QB for the Eagles and has built up a reputation as one of the better backups in the NFL, averaging over 200 passing yards per game in his career and sporting a 44-to-15 TD-to-INT ratio. Minshew joins QBs Sam Ehlinger and Nick Foles and potentially a rookie draftee in a competitive room for the starting job in Indianapolis.

Darius Slayton and the Giants have agreed to terms. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Slayton will return to the Giants after posting 724 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 46 receptions last season. The 26-year-old has chemistry with Daniel Jones, but may see his target share reduced by some incoming free agents.

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine has agreed to a one-year contract with the Titans. (Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Westbrook-Ikhine will rejoin the Titans for his fourth season with the team. The 25-year-old registered 397 yards and three touchdowns on 25 receptions last season. Westbrook-Ikhine could have fantasy value in a weak receiver group.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing RB Chase Edmonds to a one-year deal. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edmonds struggled to find the field in 2022 with both Miami and Denver, but Edmonds had flex value in fantasy as a backup RB in Arizona before that. Edmonds has a similar skill set to current RB Rachaad White, but Edmonds signed for roughly $1 million, likely indicating his status as the backup RB.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, S Harrison Smith has agreed to a pay cut to remain with the Vikings, making $8 million in 2023 with $2 million in incentives. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smith, a six-time Pro Bowl player for the Vikings, was set to have a cap hit of $19 million in 2023, and the Vikings had an out if they couldn't agree on a restructure. Smith tied his career high of five interceptions in 2022 and had 10 passes defended with 85 tackles in 14 games. Smith provides veteran leadership and strong play at the safety position, necessary for a defense that struggled in 2022.

According to Jordan Schultz of theScore, WR Parris Campbell is agreeing to a deal with the New York Giants. (Source: Jordan Schultz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The former second-round pick has played for the Colts for four seasons, posting career-high marks in 2022 of 63 catches, 623 yards and three receiving touchdowns. Campbell will provide the newly paid QB Daniel Jones with another weapon as the Giants aim to maximize their window early in his contract.
