Miami Dolphins release DT Ndamukong Suh

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 4:09pm - [Full Article]

The Dolphins are parting ways with Ndamukong Suh, even though he still has years left on a big-time deal that was supposed to be for six years and be worth $114 million. The release will cost the Dolphins $22.2 million in cap penalties. Since joining the Dolphins, Suh accumulated 15.5 sacks and 181 total tackles. He shouldn't be out of work for long.

Detroit Lions release TE Eric Ebron

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

After the Lions weren't able to find any trade partners for tight end Eric Ebron, the team decided to release him today prior to the start of free agency in order to avoid paying his $8 million salary.

Fantasy Impact:

Ebron turns 25 next month and will surely find a team in need of help at the tight end position. He was the No. 13 scoring fantasy tight end in PPR leagues last season, and if he finds a team where he will be the unquestioned No. 1 tight end, then he will be someone to target in fantasy drafts.

Baltimore Ravens to release Jeremy Maclin

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

We can add a new name to the list of available wide receiver free agents, as the Baltimore Ravens are planning to release WR Jeremy Maclin.

Fantasy Impact:

In his one and only season as a Raven, Maclin played in 12 games. He caught 40 of his 72 targets for 440 yards—all career-lows. Maclin and free agent Mike Wallace were targeted a combined 164 times last season—newcomers John Brown and Ryan Grant could be busy.

Browns OT Joe Thomas to retire

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 2:21pm

Sports Illustrated - [Full Article]

The Browns have been busy this offseason revamping their team, but will have to look forward to the 2018 season and beyond without the services of stalwart OT Joe Thomas, who announced his retirement today after 11 seasons.

Thomas had made 167 straight starts before a triceps injury sidelined him last season. It's sad to see him go as it appears the Browns are poised to win some games.

OT Nate Solder to sign with the New York Giants

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 10:53am

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The Giants are getting something they desperately need—offensive line help—in the form of former Patriots LT Nate Solder. Solder will be an immediate upgrade at the tackle position and should help keep Eli Manning upright.

Adam Schefter later reported it's a four-year deal worth $60 million.

RB Jerick McKinnon to sign with the 49ers

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 9:06am

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

According to Adam Schefter, Jerick McKinnon will sign a four-year deal with the 49ers. The team's former starting running back, Carlos Hyde, is headed to Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

Is McKinnon to the 49ers a match-made in fantasy heaven? McKinnon has been a trendy fantasy sleeper thanks to his athleticism, and now it looks like he will finally get a chance to land the No. 1 RB role on a team.

Despite starting only one game, McKinnon was the No. 17 scoring fantasy back in PPR leagues last season, thanks to a receiving line of 51 catches for 421 yards and two touchdowns. 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be a big beneficiary of this signing.

RB Carlos Hyde to sign with the Cleveland Browns

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 8:05am

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

A day after losing Isaiah Crowell to the New York Jets, the Cleveland Browns are bringing in former 49er Carlos Hyde. According to Ian Rapoport, it's a three-year deal worth over $15 million.

Fantasy Impact:

Thanks to catching 59 passes, Hyde was the No. 8 fantasy scoring back last season in PPR leagues. He has yet to crack 1,000 yards rushing, but thanks to his receptions and touchdowns (86 catches and 17 total touchdowns) the last two seasons, Hyde has been a fantasy relevant RB. He could provide useful yet again this season, but with Duke Johnson on the team, and the possible drafting of Saquon Barkley, the touches may be limited in an RBBC situation.

QB Chase Daniel to sign with the Chicago Bears

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 7:07am

Peter Schrager - [Full Article]

While this signing doesn't move the needles, the Chicago Bears adding Chase Daniel to their quarterback room signals the end of the Mike Glennon era in Chicago.

Fantasy Impact:

Glennon plans to sign with Arizona upon his release, freeing up the No. 2 QB spot in Chicago behind Mitch Trubisky. The Bears will be the 31-year-old vet's fourth team since entering the league in 2009. Based on the situation and the talent on offense, he would make for an intriguing QB2 in 2QB or superflex leagues if Mitch Trubisky were to miss any time.

RB Dion Lewis to sign with the Tennessee Titans

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 10:12pm

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Dion Lewis will form a new 1-2 RB duo with Derrick Henry after the Titans released DeMarco Murray earlier this offseason. Adam Schefter reports it's a four-year deal between Lewis and the Titans.

Fantasy Impact:

From Week 10 to Week 17 of last season, Lewis was the No. 5 scoring fantasy RB. He finished the season on a high-note, averaging 31 touches, 143 total yards, and two touchdowns the last two weeks. Lewis will be a valuable commodity in PPR leagues, and could turn into a high-end RB1 if Henry were to miss any time due to injury.

Arizona Cardinals to sign QB Mike Glennon

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 9:08pm

Tiffany Blackmon - [Full Article]

NFL Network reporter Tiffany Blackmon reported that a source close to her said the Cardinals signing Mike Glennon "is done" and will be made official tomorrow.

Fantasy Impact:

Sam Bradford was brought into the fold earlier in the day, as the assumed new No. 1 QB in Arizona. Once Glennon is officially released by the Chicago Bears he can sign a new deal with Arizona. It's pretty wild that the 2018 free agency period hasn't even started yet, officially, but that Mike Glennon has a new team before he's been released by his "current" team.

With Bradford's injury history, this could turn out to be a significant backup QB signing—and one 2QB/Superflex owners should take note of.

Ravens to sign WR Ryan Grant

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 9:03pm

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 Teddy Bridgewater to sign with the New York Jets

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 8:20pm

Chris Mortensen - [Full Article]

The Jets re-signed Josh McCown earlier today to a one-year deal worth $10 million, and it was later reported he would be the team's starting QB in 2018. They will also add Teddy Bridgewater to their QB depth chart.

Fantasy Impact:

Bridgewater has only made one appearance the last two seasons (two pass attempts) after suffering a brutal knee injury. If the McCown news is to be believed, Bridgewater will compete for the No. 2 QB spot. The Jets also own the No. 6 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and could take one of the top QB prospects. The Jets' offseason QB battle will be a storyline to follow.

CB Trumaine Johnson to sign with the New York Jets

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 7:07pm

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The New York Jets are about to add some much-needed help in the secondary with the signing of CB Trumaine Johnson. The exact terms of the deal have not been made public yet, but Ian Rapoport reports it will be in the vicinity of $15 million per year.

WR John Brown to sign with the Baltimore Ravens

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 7:03pm

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

It's about to get Smokey in Baltimore, as the Ravens will welcome WR John Brown to the team, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact:

Ever since his breakout 2015 campaign, in which he caught 65 passes for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns, Brown has been hyped up as fantasy sleeper at the receiver position. However, that sleeper potential has never materialized, and now the soon-to-be 28-year-old WR will join an offense quarterbacked by Joe Flacco that saw only one receiver catch more than 50 passes last season—Mike Wallace (52).

CB Malcolm Butler to sign with the Tennessee Titans

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 6:00pm

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

It appears the Titans will be shoring up their secondary with the addition of Malcolm Butler on a five-year deal worth $61 million, with over $30 million guaranteed. The Titans have added a No. 1 corner in Butler and he should pair up with another former Patriot in Logan Ryan.
