Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell said he wants to be a 'security blanket' for QB Sam Darnold.
Huddle Up: Bell probably isn't going to finish as the top fantasy back after ending up with the Jets, but his ability to also help in the passing game should help him stay firmly in the RB1 mix.
Jordan Matthews - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Eagles) signed a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how Matthews will be used in the offense. He has posted only 45 receptions and 582 yards over the last two seasons and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Jordy Nelson - WR - Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson was released Thursday, March 14, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nelson was no longer needed after the team added Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams this offseason, but he did post 739 yards and three touchdowns this past season. He should receive interest from some teams during free agency but is no longer a must-start option in fantasy leagues. Nelson could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his new team.
Golden Tate - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
Free-agent WR Golden Tate (Eagles) signed a four-year, $37.5 million deal with the New York Giants Thursday, March 14, according to a source. The deal includes $23 million fully guaranteed.
Huddle Up: This is a big move by the Giants in the wake of the Odell Beckham trade. Tate cannot replace Beckham, but he's a quality starter who will play a significant role. As such, his ceiling is in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 range.
Joe Flacco - QB - Baltimore Ravens
Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco is entering his prime, in the opinion of general manager John Elway. Denver's offensive system is similar to the system Flacco succeeded in with former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator and former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak. Furthermore, head coach Vic Fangio knows Flacco and coached with the Ravens when Flacco was there.
Huddle Up: The addition of Flacco was a divisive move by the Broncos. Flacco is 34 years old, so it's hard to believe he's in his prime. If Denver can get a couple solid years out of him then it will be a win. Nonetheless, he is not and has never been a reliable starting fantasy quarterback.
Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman's two-year contract is worth $8.5 million. He will receive $3.6 million in the first year of the deal with no signing bonus. A maximum of $10.6 million can be earned with incentives.
Kareem Hunt - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is likely facing a multiple-game disciplinary suspension, but Browns general manager John Dorsey said Thursday, March 14, he doesn't have any updated information on the specifics of the suspension. Dorsey did add that Hunt has been at the team's facilities and has been doing a 'great job.'
Huddle Up: Until we get clarity on the length of Hunt's ban, he'll be a late-round fantasy draft option who could pay off late next season.
Tavon Austin - WR - Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys WR Tavon Austin has agreed to re-sign with the team, according to a source Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Austin's return helps ease the loss of Cole Beasley, but he'll remain a deep-league fantasy flier in most leagues as his first season in Big D yielded only 14 touches, 195 yards from scrimmage and two TDs.
Isaiah Crowell - RB - New York Jets
New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell was released Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Crowell could land in a spot to be worth a look as an RB4 in the right timeshare.
