Cardinals re-sign RB Andre Ellington

Monday, March 13, 2017, 3:57pm

AZ Cardinals - [Full Article]

Andre Ellington re-signed with the Cardinals Monday on a one-year contract.

With David Johnson’s emergence as one of the best backs in the NFL, Ellington’s work dwindled to career-lows in all categories. He finished with 96 yards rushing on 34 carries last season, along with 12 receptions for 85 yards.

Fantasy Impact:

He'll serve as Johnson's primary backup. He's a wise handcuff for Johnson owners since he's a proven commodity.

Bears sign WR Kendall Wright

Adam Caplan - [Full Article]

Bears agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $4m with WR Kendall Wright, source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Wright had 94 catches for 1079 yards and two touchdowns on 139 targets in his second season, but it’s been pretty downhill since then. He gained 715 yards in 2014, 408 yards in 2015 and finally 416 yards last year. He’ll provide depth behind presumed starters Cameron Meredith and Kevin White.

One day after signing Martellus Bennett, Packers now bringing former Rams TE Lance Kendricks back to Wisconsin.

Fantasy Impact:

The Packers now boast one of the deepest and most talented tight end groups in the league with Martellus Bennett, Richard Rodgers and Kendricks in the fold.

Per a source, here are the terms for former Bucs wide receiver Russell Shepard, now with the Panthers: It's a three-year deal worth $10.5 million. It includes a $2 million signing bonus and $2.5 million guaranteed. He'll make $4 million in the first year.

Cowboys re-sign WR Terrance Williams

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The Cowboys re-signed WR Terrance Williams to a 4-year deal worth $17M, source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams was the #62 fantasy receiver (PPR) last year despite the fact that Dez Bryant essentially missed four games. Expect more of the same from Williams in 2017.

Patriots trade for WR Brandin Cooks

Friday, March 10, 2017, 8:00pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The New England Patriots acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks from the New Orleans Saints on Friday for a first- and third-round pick in the upcoming draft, multiple sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini.

The Patriots also will receive the Saints' fourth-round pick (No. 118 overall). New England's draft selections headed to the Saints are 32nd and 103rd overall.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots love receivers who can turn a short catch into a long gainer and with his speed, Cooks fits the bill. The signing is great for Tom Brady, but it's a downgrade for Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell. Cooks figures to rank as a WR2 in early projections since the Patriots have several mouths to feed. In New Orleans, it's a small downgrade for Drew Brees while Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and newcomer Ted Ginn will pick up the slack.

Packers sign TE Martellus Bennett

Friday, March 10, 2017, 7:51pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Former New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is signing with the Green Bay Packers.

Tight end Jared Cook, meanwhile, will sign elsewhere as a free agent, a source told ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Fantasy Impact:

When the Packers broke off negotiations with Jared Cook earlier today, it looked like Green Bay would be without a dynamic presence at tight end. Not so fast. Bennett finished the season as the #10 fantasy tight end, but he was pretty nicked up for most the season, which possibly limited his production. He still needs to undergo surgery to clean up his ankle, but provided he makes a full recovery, this is a great pickup for the Packers. Bennett should be a solid TE1 in 2017.

Redskins sign WR Terrelle Pryor to a one-year deal

Friday, March 10, 2017, 5:10pm - [Full Article]

Terrelle Pryor found a new home.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports the receiver signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins for $8 million.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor finished the season as the #21 receiver, though his numbers dipped over the final month of the season. Still, his output in the first 12 games -- 5.2 catches for 71 yards and 0.33 TD, #11 WR -- is very encouraging. He’d certainly benefit from an upgrade at quarterback, and should get one if Kirk Cousins remains in Washington.

Browns release QB Robert Griffin III

Friday, March 10, 2017, 1:45pm

PFT - [Full Article]

As it turns out, the Browns have more than one expensive quarterback they didn’t really want.

Or at least, they did.

Per Josina Anderson of ESPN, the Browns are releasing Robert Griffin III, after last year’s experiment never really came to fruition.

Fantasy Impact:

Griffin looked pretty good in the preseason, but only appeared in five games for the Browns compiling 886 yards on 147 pass attempts (6.0 YPA) while throwing more interceptions (3) than touchdowns (2). He did run for 38 yards per game and found the endzone twice.
