Baltimore Ravens sign WR Michael Crabtree

It's been a game of musical chairs at the wide receiver position by the Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens. First, the Raiders released Michael Crabtree and signed Jordy Nelson, then the Ravens signed Ryan Grant (only to void the deal because of a failed physical) and then they turned around and signed Michael Crabtree. The deal between Crabtree and the Ravens is for three years, worth $21 million, and includes $11 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Impact:

Crabtree has spent the last three seasons in Oakland, with the first two being his most productive. In 2015, he caught 85 passes for 922 yards and nine touchdowns. In 2016, he went for 89 catches, 1,003 yards, and eight touchdowns. This past season, however, he only caught 58 passes for 618 yards, but he still managed to score eight times. He will now become the No. 1 receiving option in Baltimore's offense.

Vikings sign DT Sheldon Richardson

The Minnesota Vikings are beefing up the interior of their defensive line by signing DT Sheldon Richardson to a one-year deal. Richardson was considered one of the top defensive free agents, and the Vikings may have well added the top free agents on both sides of the ball (Kirk Cousins being the other). After recording eight sacks in 2014, Richardson has totaled 8.5 the last three seasons.

WR Ryan Grant's deal with Baltimore Ravens voided

The Baltimore Ravens and WR Ryan Grant had agreed to a four-year deal worth $29 million, with $14.5 million in guarantees, but a failed physical has voided that deal. Grant is now a free agent again.

Grant's deal was a headscratcher when it was first announced, and the Ravens have been linked to recently released Michael Crabtree. It's doubtful Grant will find a deal anywhere near as lucrative as the one he was going to sign with Baltimore.

Jaguars sign TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

After adding Niles Paul earlier, the Jaguars have signed another tight in Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Fantasy Impact:

Last season turned out to be a comeback season for ASJ, who flashed the potential many saw in him when the Buccaneers used a second-round pick to draft him in 2014.

ASJ set career-highs in targets (74), catches (50), and yards (357) in only 13 games last season. Paul, Marcedes Lewis, and ASJ top the Jaguars' tight end depth chart.

Ravens to sign WR Ryan Grant

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

In what might be the most surprising signing of the day, financially, the Baltimore Ravens are going to sign former Washington WR Ryan Grant to a four-year deal worth $29 million, with $14.5 million guaranteed. The team brought in John Brown earlier in the day.

Fantasy Impact:

While Grant set career-highs in targets (65), catches (45), yards (573), and touchdowns (4) last season, it seems the Ravens may have overpaid for his services. With John Brown now in the fold, the Ravens are looking to shake-up their WR depth chart.

QB Kirk Cousins intends to sign with the Minnesota Vikings

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

According to Adam Schefter, Kirk Cousins plans to sign with the Minnesota Vikings for three years (fully guaranteed). The terms of the deal have not been released yet, but some reports suggested it could be for up to $28 million per season.

Fantasy Impact:

Once the Cousins to Minnesota train got rolling it was full steam ahead. Cousins has been a perennial top-10 fantasy QB since taking over full-time in Washington, and he finished last season as the No. 5 scoring fantasy QB. Now he gets to play in an offense with playmakers at each position: Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen at WR, Kyle Rudolph at TE, and Dalvin Cook at RB.

Cousins should continue to put up impressive fantasy numbers and will be a solid QB to target in fantasy drafts.

Washington trades for QB Alex Smith

Tuesday, January 30, 2018, 11:04pm

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Quarterback Alex Smith has a new home, as sources tell The Star that the Chiefs have reached agreement to trade their veteran starter of the last five seasons to Washington.

The Chiefs will receive a 2018 third-round pick and a player to be named on Wednesday, a source confirmed, though any trade involving Smith can’t be completed until the first day of the new league year, which begins at 3 p.m. on March 14. But the sources say the deal is in place and will definitely proceed.

Smith, 33, is coming off a stellar season in which he set career-highs in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7), throwing just five interceptions.

Related players: Kirk Cousins

Fantasy Impact:

The change in teams will force Smith to learn a new offense and develop a rapport with a new set of receivers, though he should remain a good value on draft day. Kirk Cousins will hit free agency as the best free agent quarterback since 2012, when Peyton Manning was signed by the Broncos.

Skins RB Chris Thompson should be ready for 2018

Tuesday, January 2, 2018, 12:58pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Running back Chris Thompson said his recovery from surgery on his leg will be four-to-six months.

Fantasy Impact:

He underwent surgery to repair his broken leg in early December. Thompson said he would be ready in time for training camp at the very least.
