Fantasy Impact: Boldin, who signed with the Bills earlier in the month, told the team he is retiring. From a fantasy perspective, Zay Jones and Jordan Matthews' fantasy stock will rise. They are in line to open the year as the team's WR1 and WR2 respectively. However, the biggest beneficiary could be Charles Clay, who is expected to emerge as one the Bills' top red zone threats in Boldin's absence.

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo returned to the field Tuesday after he injured his left leg in Sunday's practice. His injury was serious enough to miss Monday's practice also. Baltimore Sun's contact reporter Edward Lee reported that Adeboyejo was pinned under another player when he slid on the turf to make a catch. According to Coach Harbaugh, he has been doing well in practice, making big plays. (Source: Baltimore Sun)

Fantasy Impact: Adeboyejo is an undrafted rookie out of Ole Miss who recorded 106 receptions for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns in 38 games. He has the quickness and long strides to make good catch and run plays. After rookie wide receiver Tim White had season-ending thumb surgery, Adeboyejo is that much closer to a roster spot.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Philadelphia Eagles are releasing running back Ryan Mathews on Tuesday. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After passing his physical on Tuesday, Mathews was informed of his release, as expected. The Eagles will avoid paying the oft-injured rusher an injury settlement by cutting him after he was cleared. Mathews should find a suitor for the 2017 season sooner rather than later, especially since his health is finally intact.
