Analysis: With that, Mahomes, who was the 2018 NFL MVP, is under contract with the Chiefs through the 2031 season, while the exact parameters and cap ramifications of his lucrative extension have yet to be outlined.

6.Marcus Maye: Jets' HC wanted to trade him before last season? (FantasyPros) Jets' HC Adam Gase reportedly wanted to trade S Marcus Maye before the start of last season, per Manish Mehta of NY Daily News. Analysis: "Gase wanted to trade Maye after he was hired last year before being convinced to keep the player," Mehta added. The Jets drafted Cal safety Ashytn Davis in NFL 2020 Draft, which prompted Maye's future. It was reported that Maye would unlikely sign a second contract with the Jets. He racked up 65 tackles and one interception across 16 games in 2019. The 27-year-old will compete with Davis to start along side star safety Jamal Ada... (More)12 hours

Analysis: Tabor expects to be ready for Week 1, though he'll first need to find a team.

9.Patrick Mahomes: Gets 10-year extension (RotoWire) Mahomes agreed Monday with the Chiefs on a 10-year contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The initial report doesn't provide details beyond the length, but there's no doubt it will be the largest contract in NFL history for both total value and guaranteed money.

10.Jamar Taylor: Joins San Francisco (RotoWire) Taylor signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

11.Teez Tabor: Cut loose by Niners (RotoWire) The 49ers cut Tabor on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The 2017 second-round pick never made an impact in Detroit and spent part of the 2019 campaign on San Francisco's practice squad.

13.Chiefs reach 10-year extension deal with Patrick Mahomes (FFToday) Patrick Mahomes’ 10-year -- 10-year! -- contract extension that ties him to Kansas City through the 2031 season will be the richest contract in NFL history. Analysis: This sounds like an attention grabbing headline leaked by the agent. The extension would keep Mahomes a Chief through the 2031 season but we know contracts in the NFL are all about the guarantees. We should learn the details soon, and it's sure to be a high-water mark for the league in terms of guaranteed money.14 hours
14.Patrick Mahomes inks 10-year extension with the Chiefs (FantasyPros) The Chiefs are signing QB Patrick Mahomes to a 10-year extension. The deal is reportedly worth over $400 million. Analysis: Mahomes is signing reportedly the richest contract in NFL history and will be a member of the Chiefs until 2031. The deal is worth over $400 million and the move is reportedly tied to the salary cap. Mahomes is entering his fourth season as a pro and will turn 25 this fall.

15.Raiders | Vegas makes offer to Jadeveon Clowney (thehuddle) Free-agent DE Jadeveon Clowney (Seahawks) has received a contract offer from the Las Vegas Raiders, but the Raiders' offer is not as good as other offers he has received, according to sources. 15 hours
16.Trey Quinn: Facing tough competition (RotoWire) Quinn will face snap and target competition from Steven Sims, Kelvin Harmon and Antonio Gandy-Golden, Miriam Jackson of the The Union Journal reports. Analysis: Quinn served as Washington's slot specialist for the majority of last season, catching 26 of 47 targets for 198 yards and one touchdown in 12 games before a concussion sent him to injured reserve in December. Undrafted rookie Steven Sims then took over the role and was far more productive, piling up 230 yards and four TDs over the final four weeks of the year. It's possible Quinn gets another chance to win the slot role, but Sims should enter training camp as the favorite.15 hours
17.David Njoku remains a big part of the Browns plans despite trade request (FantasyPros) Despite the fact that Browns TE David Njoku and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, have requested a trade, Cleveland still sees the former first-round pick as a big part of their offense. Analysis: The Browns may have a difficult time trading Njoku prior to the start of training camp, and that could be why they're saying the tight end is a big part of their plans. Cleveland brought in Austin Hooper on a four-year deal for a reason, clearly because they don't see Njoku as the pass-catching option they desire. Both Njoku and his agent feel as if he'd be better suited as the n... (More)16 hours
18.Jadeveon Clowney has reportedly received an offer from the Raiders (FantasyPros) According to sources, the Las Vegas Raiders have reportedly extended an offer to free agent DE Jadeveon Clowney. Analysis: The same sources say that two or three other teams have better offers on the table, but that Jon Gruden is willing to up the offer for the elite pass-rusher. Raiders GM Mike Mayock may not want to pay Clowney what it's going to take to bring him to Las Vegas, but Gruden is certainly in his ear looking to increase the Raiders' offer. Clowney has been linked to a multitude of teams thus far including Cleveland, Tennessee, Seattle, and now Las Vega... (More)16 hours
19.Jaleel Scott: Looking at poor roster odds (RotoWire) Scott faces a difficult path to earning a roster spot, SI.com's Todd Karpovich reports. Analysis: The 2018 fourth-round pick was stashed on injured reserve as a rookie and served as a healthy scratch for 13 of 16 games last season. The Ravens have seen enough potential to keep Scott around so far, but the math could change after the team used a third-round pick on Devin Duvernay and a sixth-rounder on James Proche this year. With Duvernay, Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and Willie Snead already locked in for roster spots, Scott may end up competing with a horde of players for just one or two jobs.16 hours
20.Trace McSorley: Facing competition for No. 3 gig (RotoWire) McSorley will need to battle for a roster spot this summer, SI.com's Todd Karpovich reports. Analysis: The 2019 sixth-round pick had a roster spot all last season as the No. 3 quarterback, but there's no guarantee the Ravens keep three signal-callers again. Even if they do, it could be undrafted rookie Tyler Huntley who gets the nod over McSorley, depending on how both players perform during training camp and the preseason. On the other hand, McSorley could push Robert Griffin for the second spot on the depth chart.16 hours
21.Lions | Kenny Golladay a deep threat last year (thehuddle) Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay recorded 17 receptions of at least 25 yards during the 2019 season. Analysis: Golladay was successful last season even though he had to play with several quarterbacks. He has a chance to improve on his stats with a full season with Matthew Stafford. He should be at least a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues and will be a weekly starting option.16 hours
22.De'Anthony Thomas: Not assured of return job (RotoWire) Thomas will face competition from rookie sixth-round pick James Proche in the return game, SI.com's Todd Karpovich reports. Analysis: Thomas was released by the Chiefs last October and caught on with the Ravens a few weeks later. He averaged 16.6 yards on 10 kick returns and 7.2 yards on 13 punt returns in eight games with Baltimore, playing 123 snaps on special teams but only three on offense. The Ravens likely hope Proche can seize the return job this season.16 hours
23.Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes agrees to huge extension (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes agreed to terms on a 10-year contract extension with the Chiefs Monday, July 6, that will run through the 2031 season, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the contract with be the richest contract in NFL history. Analysis: Mahomes is coming off his first championship and is only 24 years old, so the Chiefs locked him up for most of the rest of his career. He is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and is a must-start in all fantasy leagues.17 hours

26.Damien Williams: Undeterred by Edwards-Helaire (RotoWire) Despite competing with Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the backfield, Williams expects to enjoy a breakout season in 2020, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Williams is 28 years old and entering the second season of a two-year, $5.1 million extension, while Edwards-Helaire is a 21-year-old first-round pick. The rookie may be the one with the significant investment behind him, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll enter Week 1 in the lead role. An abbreviated offseason program should work in favor of Williams, who already has two seasons of experience in Andy Reid's offense, highlighted by 540 total yards and 10 touchdowns in ...

27.Browns | David Njoku remains in plans (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku remains a big part of the Browns' offense, but a source said that Njoku has wanted out. Analysis: Njoku is coming off of a lost season, and now he has Austin Hooper in town fresh off of a career year. So Njoku is blocked to a degree, but he might be a lottery ticket TE2 late in drafts. 21 hours
28.Giants | Leonard Williams seeking big payday (thehuddle) New York Giants DE Leonard Williams is seeking $18-$20 million in a long-term extension. The Giants are unwilling to approach that price tag. 22 hours
29.Brian Hoyer could be the odd man out of Patriots' QBs (FantasyPros) Brian Hoyer could be the odd man out of the Patriots' QBs. "Hoyer finds himself in an interesting spot with Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham in New England," per Mike Reiss of ESPN. Analysis: Hoyer was released by the Colts earlier this off-season once the team signed QB Philip Rivers. With the Patriots signing Newton, Hoyer once again finds himself in a similar spot. New England could opt to keep only two quarterbacks, making Hoyer the odd man out. This decision will most likely depend on Newton's health. Hoyer will enter camp competing with Stidham for the backup QB ... (More)1 day
30.Quincy Wilson: Fresh start in New York (RotoWire) Wilson (shoulder) could have the opportunity to compete for a rotational role in training camp, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports. Analysis: The Jets acquired Wilson, who struggled to establish himself as a fixture in Indianapolis' secondary over the last three years, in exchange for the 211th pick in April's draft. He was limited to 11 games in 2019 due to a lingering shoulder injury but is on track to begin training camp without limitations. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, the 2017 second-round pick will now look to capitalize on his opportunities with the Jets and secure snaps at cornerback.1 day
31.John Franklin-Myers: Back for 2020 (RotoWire) Franklin-Myers (undisclosed) is set to serve in a reserve role for the Jets in 2020, Olivia Landis of the team's official site reports. Analysis: The 23-year-old was claimed off waiver by the Jets in early September, but he didn't appear in a game as he spent most of the season on injured reserve. Franklin-Myers appeared in 16 games as a rookie with the Rams in 2018 and had 10 total tackles and two sacks.1 day
32.Ashtyn Davis: Set for backup work (RotoWire) Davis (groin) is likely to operate as the Jets' No. 3 safety in 2020, Ethan Greenberg, Eric Allen and Randy Lange of the team's official site report. Analysis: Jamal Adams -- barring an unexpected trade -- and Marcus Maye are entrenched in the starting spots at safety, but Davis could still see the field in specialized packages this year. The rookie third-round pick started the past two seasons at Cal and recorded six interceptions in 24 games.1 day

34.Cardinals | Kyler Murray a fan of screen passes in 2019 (thehuddle) Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray accumulated a league-high 575 passing yards on screen plays in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.1 day
35.Blake Cashman: Likely filling reserve role (RotoWire) Cashman (shoulder) likely will enter training camp working in a reserve role at inside linebacker, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Analysis: The return of C.J. Mosley (groin) and signing of Patrick Onwuasor should leave Cashman battling for a reserve role in camp. The 2019 fifth-round pick had 40 tackles (27 solo) and a half sack in seven games before going down with a shoulder injury, but he may see fewer opportunities this season.1 day
36.Ulysees Gilbert: Chance to earn backup job (RotoWire) Gilbert (back) should have the opportunity to earn the backup job at inside linebacker in training camp, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Analysis: The 2019 sixth-round pick totaled only five tackles in seven games before being shut down with a back injury, but the offseason departures of Mark Barron and Tyler Matakevich create an opening on the depth chart. Gilbert likely will be in competition with Robert Spillane, John Houston and Leo Lewis.1 day
37.Patriots | Brian Hoyer not long for New England again? (thehuddle) New England Patriots QB Brian Hoyer finds himself in an 'interesting spot' following the addition of Cam Newton, and ESPN's Mike Reiss suggests he could be the odd man out if Newton is healthy and Jarrett Stidham shows well in training camp.1 day
38.Chris Peace: Competing with rookies (RotoWire) Peace (knee) will be competing with draft picks Cam Brown, Carter Coughlin and Tae Crowder for a roster spot in training camp, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports. Analysis: Brown, Coughlin and Crowder were all sixth- or seventh-round picks and don't have significant claim to a roster spot, but they may be more secured than the undrafted Peace. The 24-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Giants in late September and appeared in four games before suffering a knee injury down the stretch.1 day
39.Eagles | Carson Wentz enjoying rare success early in career (thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's 32 wins are the 15th-most by a quarterback in his first four seasons, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank.1 day
40.Panthers | Teddy Bridgewater dinked and dunked in 2019 (thehuddle) Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater's average depth of completion of 4.7 yards as a member of the New Orleans Saints last season was the lowest mark by a quarterback in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.1 day
41.Broncos | Drew Lock kept it short as a rookie (thehuddle) Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock's average depth of completion of 4.8 yards was tied with Pittsburgh Steelers QB Devlin Hodges for the second-lowest mark by a quarterback in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.1 day
42.Raiders | Derek Carr embraced short throws in 2019 (thehuddle) Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr's average depth of completion of 5.2 yards in 2019 was the lowest by any regular starting quarterback in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.1 day
43.Vikings | Shamar Stephen will have competition at DT (thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings DT Shamar Stephen will be pushed by DTs Armon Watts and James Lynch for one of the starting defensive tackle jobs during training camp. 1 day
44.Damien Williams hopes to take a big step forward this season (FantasyPros) Running backs coach Deland McCullough believes RB Damien Williams' "maturation" in the Chiefs offense "is going to be a big jump this year." Analysis: "When he shined, he shined at a level that helped us get over a hump in a few games - and obviously helped us in winning the Super Bowl," McCullough said of Williams. Willams played just 11 games last season, splitting time with a number of Chiefs RBs, but he was the primary ball carrier the majority of the games he played. He rushed for 104 yards and a score in the Super Bowl, and for that the Chiefs may have to give... (More)1 day
45.Rams | Micah Kiser may be in line to start (thehuddle) Los Angeles Rams LB Micah Kiser appears to be the leading candidate for one of the starting inside linebacker jobs but will be pushed by LBs Travin Howard and Kenny Young for the job. 1 day
46.Rams | LAR could look at veteran QBs (thehuddle) Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Rams) and QB Matt Moore (Chiefs) could be options for the Los Angeles Rams if the team wants a veteran backup quarterback, in the opinion of RamsWire's Cameron DaSilva. 1 day
47.Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen have worked out together this offseason (FantasyPros) New Bills WR Stefon Diggs and QB Josh Allen have worked out together in Florida this offseason in an attempt to build chemistry ahead of training camp. Analysis: Diggs is the newest member to join Allen's arsenal of weapons on offense. He's been dubbed one of the best route runners in the league by many and should get lots of opportunities to show that in Buffalo. He'll compete with Smokey John Brown and Cole Beasley for targets, but he's likely to hit the century mark as the team's best wideout. Diggs finds himself as ranked as WR27 in the FantasyPros ECR, with Bro... (More)1 day
48.Chiefs | Coach expects big jump from Damien Williams (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams has a chance to make a big jump in production this season because of the improvements he is making this offseason, according to running backs coach Deland McCullough. Analysis: Williams should continue to be the starting running back for the Chiefs but will lose some touches to Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He is part of one of the top offenses in the NFL and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues. 1 day
49.Jaguars | Fewer grabs for Leonard Fournette? (thehuddle) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette could see his reception total cut in half in 2020 because of the addition of RB Chris Thompson, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com. Analysis: Fournette should continue to handle a majority of the carries, so even if he doesn't approach his total of 76 catches from last year, he should remain a high-volume back and a low-end RB1.2 days
50.Texans | Brandin Cooks the top target? (thehuddle) Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks will be QB Deshaun Watson's No. 1 target and lead the team in catches in 2020, in the opinion of Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com. Analysis: His 2019 season was a disaster, but Cooks had topped 1,000 yards in each of the four previous seasons. His concussion issues are a real concern, but if he stays healthy, WR2 production is likely as the Texans try to replace DeAndre Hopkins.2 days
51.Jets | Chris Herndon in a bad spot? (thehuddle) New York Jets TE Chris Herndon could underwhelm in 2020 because of the way head coach Adam Gase utilizes the tight end position, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. When Gase was with the Miami Dolphins from 2016 to 2018, his tight ends finished with a league-low 150 catches in that span. Analysis: Herndon flashed TE1 potential as a rookie in 2018, but injuries ruined his sophomore campaign. Gase's history with tight ends isn't encouraging, but Herndon is one of the most dynamic weapons the Jets have in the passing game. He's still worth a flier as a TE2.2 days
52.Patriots | Bigger role for Damien Harris? (thehuddle) New England Patriots RB Damien Harris has a 'great future' with the team, according to running backs coach Ivan Fears, and Mike Reiss of ESPN.com believes Harris 'is a good bet to take a significant leap in 2020.' Analysis: Considering Harris wasn't even active most weeks as a rookie, it won't exactly take much for him to take a big leap. At best, he will probably be third in line for touches in the backfield, and he remains no more than a lottery ticket in dynasty formats.2 days
53.D'Andre Swift: Signs rookie deal (RotoWire) Swift announced Saturday via his personal Twitter account that he signed his four-year contract with the Lions. Analysis: The question now becomes, what type of role does the talented back assume at the NFL level? 2018 second-round pick, Kerryon Johnson, has briefly flashed moments of legitimate talent throughout his two-year career, including a rookie campaign in which he averaged 5.4 yards per carry. But injuries and general ineffectiveness last season from the Auburn product seem to set the stage for Johnson and Swift to operate as a 1-2 tandem, with the latter likely handling snaps as the receiving threat out of the backfield. Th... (More)2 days
54.Dynasty | Devin Singletary health will be key (Dynasty League Football) Buffalo running back Devin Singletary will need to remain healthy in 2020 to build on a successful rookie campaign Analysis: Singletary produced 775 rushing yards on 151 attempts, good for 5.1 ypc., leading all rookie rushers in 2019. He also reeled in 29 receptions and two touchdowns, showing his versatility, but the rookie also missed four games due to a hamstring injury. Keeping Singletary off the trainer's table will be key in 2020 and to that end, the team allowed aged veteran Frank Gore to depart via free agency while selecting a Go... (More)2 days
55.D'Andre Swift officially signs rookie deal with the Lions (FantasyPros) RB D'Andre Swift officially his signed four-year contract with the Lions on Saturday. Analysis: Swift was selected 35th overall by the Lions in the 2020 NFL Draft and was considered the top back overall. He will join Kerryon Johnson and form a one-two punch in the Lions' backfield. Swift is currently 27th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings. The 21-year-old has plenty of fantasy upside and Is an excellent RB3 in all league formats.2 days
56.Dynasty | Zach Moss takes on Gore role (Dynasty League Football) Rookie running back Zack Moss will play a similar role to Frank Gore according to GM Brandon Beane Analysis: That has been the full expectation since the Bills selected Moss and allowed Gore to enter free agency. Devin Singletary showed well in 2019 but won't be asked to be a full-time three-down player in order to maintain his health. Moss didn't wow at the NFL Combine with a 4.65 40 his college film tells the story with his 4,000+ rushing yards and 38 touchdowns showing what he's capable of as a between-the-tackles runner. He d... (More)2 days
57.Patriots | New England optimistic in Cam Newton's health (thehuddle) New England Patriots QB Cam Newton is in town to complete his physical Saturday, July 4 - a process that will reportedly take a few days to complete - but the team is 'confident in his condition' and 'no issues at all are anticipated on his physical,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.2 days
58.Cam Newton is in New England to take his physical and finalize his contract (FantasyPros) New Patriots QB Cam Newton has touched down in New England to take his physical and finalize his one-year contract. Analysis: The Patriots are confident in his condition and believe all will go well with the results of the physical. Newton should be all systems go for training camp with his new teammates at the end of July. While it's been reported that he's not guaranteed the starting job, it'd be hard to imagine the Patriots not rolling with the former MVP in favor of Jarrett Stidham.2 days
59.Zack Moss to fill the 'Frank Gore' role in Bills offense (FantasyPros) Bills GM Brandon Beane envisions third-round RB Zack Moss playing a role similar to the one Frank Gore played last season. Analysis: Gore ended the season with 599 yards and two TDs on 166 rush attempts. Even though just a rookie, Moss figures to see a sizable role in the Bills offense this season. If Moss sees 150+ carries, he's likely to put up RB3 or RB4 type numbers in a "complementary" role to Devin Singletary. Both could return solid value running behind a very good offensive line, but Singletary will be more valuable in PPR formats while Moss more valuable in... (More)2 days
60.Preston Williams: Expected to be healthy (RotoWire) Williams (knee) expects to be ready for the start of the regular season, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports. Analysis: It's a reassuring statement from Williams given the wideout tore his ACL in early November and is reportedly not yet participating in on-field workouts during the offseason, although he has started jogging. The undrafted rookie did put together a productive campaign prior to the injury, registering 32 receptions for 428 yards and three touchdowns in eight games as the primary receiving threat in the Dolphins' offense, so it stands to reason Williams should be another featured target in 2020 should he ultimatel...

61.Dynasty | David Njoku requests a trade (Dynasty League Football) Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku has requested a trade. Analysis: The former first round tight end hasn't lived up to his draft capital, posting a 93/1,066/9 line over three seasons in Cleveland. The arrival of Austin Hooper, who signed a record breaking deal for a tight end, clearly has Njoku frustrated and has culminated in this request. There's little doubting Njoku's talent, but injuries and scheme fit just haven't worked out so far during his time with the Browns. A change of scenery is clearly the best thing for... (More)2 days
62.Trae Waynes advised not to partake in drills prior to passing physical (FantasyPros) New Bengals CB Trae Waynes was advised by his agent not to partake in any football activities that could put his new three-year, $42M with Cincinnati in jeopardy prior to taking and passing his physical. Analysis: Waynes has yet to take and pass a physical for the Bengals, and hasn't been paid his $15M signing bonus yet. It's an unusual situation, but Waynes has been advised to tread lightly in case of a freak injury prior to receiving the signing bonus he'll get when he puts pen to paper. Waynes played four years in Minnesota prior to joining the Bengals this offse... (More)3 days
63.Dolphins | Jordan Howard to be busy? (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard could 'come close to doubling' the number of carries RB Matt Breida will receive, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com. Analysis: Howard probably won't see much work in the passing game, but if he does a bulk of the heavy lifting on early downs and near the goal line, he should at least be a solid flex option.3 days
64.David Njoku not in consideration for the Cowboys despite rumor (FantasyPros) According to two CowboysSi.com sources inside The Star, reports of Dallas being interested in Browns TE David Njoku are fiction. Analysis: Browns sources earlier today linked the Cowboys to Njoku, who recently requested a trade with his new agent Drew Rosenhaus. "That" one source said, "sounds like an agent creation." Another source said, "nope, no interest." Rosenhaus is known to be really good at creating buzz around his clients, and this instance is no different for the former 1st-round pick in 2017. The Cowboys have Blake Jarwin, Blake Bell, and Dalton Schultz a... (More)3 days
65.David Njoku: The Cowboys may have interest in the Browns tight end (FantasyPros) According to a source, the Dallas Cowboys could have some interest in Browns TE David Njoku, who just recently requested to be traded. Analysis: This would be an interesting landing spot for Njoku, but one that might make sense. Blake Jarwin is set to take over the starting tight end role in Dallas vacated by Jason Witten, who is now in Las Vegas. If the former 2017 first-round pick were to end up with the Cowboys, Jarwin's fantasy value would certainly take a hit. Jarwin is a lot of people's favorite tight end sleeper this season with a bunch of vacated targets in ... (More)3 days
66.Cowboys | Dallas not interested in David Njoku (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is not receiving any trade interest from Dallas Cowboys, according to sources. Analysis: The Cowboys had been mentioned as a possible option for Njoku, but it appears like they will stick with Blake Jarwin as their starting tight end.

67.Browns | Everson Griffen unlikely an option (thehuddle) Free-agent DE Everson Griffen (Vikings) does not appear to be an option for the Cleveland Browns at this time, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. 3 days
68.David Njoku: Asks to be traded (RotoWire) Njoku is requesting a trade, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Njoku and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, are hoping the Browns will trade their tight end before training camp begins. The 2017 first-round pick made some big plays during his first two seasons, but his consistency never came close to matching his athleticism, and he then missed 12 games in 2019. The Browns signed Austin Hooper in March, and while early reports suggested the team would keep both tight ends, it now appears Njoku has other plans. The Browns exercised his fifth-year option for 2021, which is guaranteed for injury only.3 days
69.David Njoku requests trade from Browns (FantasyPros) David Njoku and his agent Drew Rosenhaus have requested a trade from the Cleveland Browns. Analysis: Njoku likely foresees a reduction in his role, as he saw the Browns sign former Falcons tight end Austin Hooper to a lucrative, four-year, $44M contract this off-season. Njoku has been largely underwhelming in his three seasons with Cleveland, providing a 93/1,066/9 receiving line across 36 games, most recently appearing in just four contests in an injury-plagued 2019. Still, there should be plenty of teams vying for the services of a big-bodied, athletic tight end w... (More)3 days
70.David Njoku wants out of Cleveland (FFToday) 1/2 Browns’ TE David Njoku and his agent Drew Rosenhaus asked today for the team to trade him.

Analysis: The Browns signed former Atlanta tight end Austin Hooper this off-season which spurred speculation that Njoku ... (More)3 days
71.Dolphins | Kamu Grugier-Hill may push for starting job (thehuddle) Miami Dolphins LB Kamu Grugier-Hill may push LB Raekwon McMillan for one of the starting inside linebacker jobs during training camp. 3 days
72.Cowboys | Dallas may consider David Njoku (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku could be a trade target for the Dallas Cowboys if they Browns decide to move him, according to a source. Analysis: Blake Jarwin is on track to be the starting tight end for the Cowboys, but they do not have much depth at the position. Njoku may have the opportunity to compete for the starting job if he joins the Cowboys. Njoku has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he was part of Dallas' passing game. 3 days
73.Browns | Cleveland not looking to move David Njoku (thehuddle) Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has asked for a trade, but the Browns do not want to trade Njoku at this time, according to a source. Analysis: The Browns have Austin Hooper, but Njoku can also be a target in the passing game if he remains with the team. Fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next few weeks to see where Njoku will play in 2020. He probably would be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he remains with the Browns. 3 days
74.Browns | David Njoku asks for trade (thehuddle) Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has asked the team to trade him and hopes for a trade before the start of training camp. The Browns have told Njoku they would like to keep him, but agent Drew Rosenhaus said Njoku is intent on a trade. Analysis: The Browns added Austin Hooper this offseason, so Njoku likely will be looking to start for another team. He has played well at times during his career but was limited to only four games and 41 yards in 2019. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end at this time but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end depending on his new team.3 days
75.Antonio Brown: Could join Seattle? (RotoWire) Brown and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are interested in playing together, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Garafolo reports other star quarterbacks -- including Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson -- are hoping their teams will sign the veteran wideout. Previous reports suggested the Buccaneers and Ravens weren't likely to sign Brown, but Seattle could be a fit. Garafolo believes the Seahawks aren't likely to sign Brown until the NFL completes its investigation into his series of off-field incidents. A suspension is widely expected, potentially costing him half the season or more. Brown will turn 32 on ... (More)3 days
76.Saints | More expected from Marcus Davenport (thehuddle) New Orleans Saints DE Marcus Davenport is being relied upon for more in his third season. 'He's definitely has room to get better and it's there, the potential and the growth is there,' Saints defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen said. 'I think he made a big step last season. There's some games where he was playing lights-out. Talking to him, I think his confidence is better this offseason. He's working hard and I know he had a couple of injuries, but he's put the work in.' 3 days
77.D.J. Reed suffers a torn pectoral (FantasyPros) Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that 49ers DB D.J. Reed has sustained a torn pectoral. Analysis: Reed mostly played on special teams in 2019 but did mix in for a handful of defensive snaps here and there. He will likely be sidelined for two months with this injury, which puts his Week 1 status up in the air.3 days
78.Alex Okafor: Set to reprise starting role (RotoWire) Okafor (pectoral) is likely to serve as one of Kansas City's starting defensive ends again in 2020, Seth Keysor of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Okafor notched 22 tackles and five sacks last season in his inaugural year with the Chiefs. He played through multiple injuries which ultimately limited him to just 10 games. A healthy offseason could allow Okafor to rebound in the tackle department in 2020, though his five sacks were actually his highest mark since 2014.4 days
79.John Lovett: Could contribute in 2020 (RotoWire) Lovett (shoulder) will compete for a reserve spot in training camp, Tom Childs of Arrowhead Pride reports. Analysis: Lovett spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury, but he could offer the Chiefs a mismatch in blocking schemes for 2020. The Princeton alum has a shot to carve out a reserve role at either fullback or tight end.4 days
80.Antonio Brown: 'there's a shot' Seahawks sign the free agent WR (FantasyPros) Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network is reporting that "there is a shot" the Seahawks sign free agent WR Antonio Brown. Analysis: Brown has been working out with Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and reportedly would "love to go to a Seattle."

84.Jordan Elliott signs rookie contract with Browns (FantasyPros) The Browns signed their third-round pick DT Jordan Elliott to a four-year contract. Analysis: Elliott is a 22-year-old out of Missouri who should help bolster the interior of Cleveland's defensive line. He slimmed down entering last season, which helped with some pass rush moves. He was the 88th overall pick back in April.4 days
85.Chiefs | Tyrann Mathieu owns the slot (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu allowed a passer rating of 70.0 in the slot in 2019 - the third-best mark of any player with at least 200 snaps inside - according to Pro Football Focus.4 days
86.Todd Gurley: Could prove to be steal for Atlanta (RotoWire) Gurley's one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Falcons should be considered "an absolute steal," per Jeff Kerr of CBSSports.com. Analysis: The former Georgia standout and 2017 AP Offensive Player of the Year returns to the Peach State on a "prove it" deal, as the Falcons exchange one veteran back for another, releasing Devonta Freeman for the 25-year-old Gurley. Despite having 5,404 rushing yards and 70 total touchdowns to his name in five professional campaigns, the prolific Gurley still finds himself with something to prove entering 2020. His production slipped substantially during 2019, as he dropped from a 4.9 yards-per-carry ... (More)4 days
87.49ers | K'Waun Williams locks up slot receivers (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers CB K'Waun Williams allowed a passer rating of 69.3 in the slot in 2019 - the second-best mark of any player with at least 200 snaps inside - according to Pro Football Focus.4 days
88.Seahawks | Antonio Brown interested in Seattle (thehuddle) Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is interested in signing with the Seattle Seahawks, and it is believed that QB Russell Wilson would like the Seahawks to sign Brown. Analysis: Brown has been linked to a few teams this offseason but is still waiting to sign with a team. There is still a chance that he will be suspended at some point because of his off-field issues, so fantasy players can monitor the situation. He has been one of the top receivers in the NFL when he has been on the field and will have fantasy value if he plays in 2020. 4 days

91.Tavon Young: Declared healthy (RotoWire) Young (neck) is now healthy, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official website reports. Analysis: The 2016 fourth-round pick signed a three-year, $25.8 million extension last offseason, expecting to serve as Baltimore's nickelback long term. He then suffered a season-ending neck injury during training camp, but he should be back for Week 1 of 2020 to guard the slot. Young's return should allow Marlon Humphrey to take the vast majority of his snaps outside, teaming up with Young and Marcus Peters to give Baltimore one of the top cornerback groups in the league. The team also retained Jimmy Smith, who has 83 career starts to his name but hasn'... (More)4 days
92.Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes made big throws in 2019 (thehuddle) Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 15 passes of at least 40 yards during the 2019 season, which ranked second among quarterbacks. Analysis: Mahomes was one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL last season and will be one of the first quarterbacks selected in fantasy drafts this season. He is a must-start fantasy option no matter the opponent. 4 days
93.Cowboys | Dak Prescott hit several long passes (thehuddle) Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 16 passes of at least 40 yards during the 2019 season, which led the league in the category. Analysis: Prescott is still waiting for a long-term contract but will be the starting quarterback for at least the 2020 season. He will have one of the top receiving corps to work with this upcoming season and should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues. 4 days
94.Tavon Young (neck) deemed 'ready to go' (FantasyPros) Ravens defensive coordinator Wink Martindale says CB Tavon Young (neck) is "ready to go." Analysis: "He says he's healthy. Tavon is ready to go, and if he tells me he's ready to go, I believe in him 100 percent" Martindale said. Young missed the entire 2019 season following neck surgery but should help boost Baltimore's secondary this year.4 days
95.Titans | A.J. Brown a big-play WR in 2019 (thehuddle) Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown recorded six receptions of at least 50 yards in 2019. No other receiver in the NFL had more than four receptions of at least 50 yards. Analysis: Brown earned the No. 1 receiver job last season and will be the focal point in the passing game for the Titans. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in leagues and will be a weekly starting option.4 days
96.Anthony Johnson: Practice squad candidate (RotoWire) Johnson appears to be a strong candidate for the practice squad, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Analysis: Projected as a high draft pick after a productive career at the University of Buffalo, Johnson went undrafted in 2019. He signed as a free agent with the Buccaneers and spent most of his rookie season on the Chargers' practice squad. He has the tools to make Pittsburgh's practice squad -- if not the 53-man roster -- but questions linger as to why he was not drafted and has been cut twice.4 days
97.Deebo Samuel: Looking at 10-12 week timeline (RotoWire) Samuel (foot) suffered a "classic Jones fracture," which should put his recovery/rehab timeline around 10-to-12 weeks, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Initial reports suggested anything between eight and 16 weeks would be a reasonable expectation. This post-surgery update hints at a narrower window, though it's not something we can project with a high degree of confidence. Given the risk of future complications, the Niners could decide to hold Samuel out of games even if he technically gets medical clearance for Week 1. The 24-year-old wideout had surgery June 18, so he's already two weeks into the timeline estimate.4 days
98.Kendrick Bourne: Hoping for extension (RotoWire) Bourne and the 49ers have discussed a contract extension, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Bourne is signed to a second-round restricted free agent tender for 2020, scheduled to pay him $3.26 million. The 2017 UDFA has never been much of a fantasy asset, but he did solid work for the Niners as a No. 3 receiver the past two seasons, averaging 7.7 yards on 110 targets while primarily operating from the slot. Bourne could see an uptick in usage early this season if Deebo Samuel is slow to recover from June foot surgery.4 days
99.49ers | Extension coming for Raheem Mostert? (thehuddle) San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has had contract extension talks with the 49ers this offseason, but it is not known how much progress they have made during the talks, according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows. Analysis: Mostert had a breakout season in 2019 and will continue to have a significant role in the offense this upcoming season. He has a chance to be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues and can be a flex option in most leagues. 4 days
100.Cam Newton: Gets only $550K guaranteed (RotoWire) Newton's one-year contract with the Patriots includes only $550,000 guaranteed, with a $1.05 million base salary, $700,000 in per-game roster bonuses and $5.75 million in incentives, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The base value is essentially No. 3 QB money, while the max value is in high-end backup range. These contract details support recent reports suggesting Newton will need to earn the starting job, though he should have good odds in a competition with 2019 fourth-round pick Jarrett Stidham and 34-year-old journeyman Brian Hoyer. Newton was medically cleared in late March after struggling with foot and shoulder ... (More)4 days
