Player Update C.J. Spiller, RB - Free Agent | Saints sign C.J. Spiller
13 Mar 2015 - 1:06pm

The Saints have signed former Bills running back C.J. Spiller to a four-year deal. The Saints have been busy thus far in free agency and all moves seem to point to a more balanced attack on offense.  Moving Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills, adding Max Unger, Spiller and re-signing Mark Ingram would suggest that the Saints intend to run the ball more as Drew Brees gets older. Expect Ingram to get the bulk of work this season with Spiller acting as the change-of-pace and gadget back. Spiller gets a big bump as Sean Peyton will know how to use him properly.

Player Update Anthony Fasano, TE - Free Agent | Titans sign Anthony Fasano
13 Mar 2015 - 12:09pm

The Titans have signed former Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano. Fasano is a capable pass catcher and great blocker. He's unlikely to have much fantasy value. While he's a decent red zone target the Titan's aren't exactly marching up and down the field at will.  

Player Update Darren McFadden, RB - Free Agent | Cowboys expected to sign Darren McFadden
13 Mar 2015 - 11:57am

The Cowboys have agreed to terms with former Raiders running Darren McFadden on a two-year deal worth up to $5.85 million. A clear downgrade to DeMarco Murray, McFadden certainly isn't being brought in to be a replacement but rather a breather back. Expect the Cowboys to continue to build their backfield.

Player Update Jordan Cameron, TE - Free Agent | Dolphins sign Jordan Cameron
12 Mar 2015 - 9:14pm

The Dolphins have signed former Browns tight end Jordan Cameron to a two-year, $15 million deal. Cameron is a high-end talent with great hands and after-the-catch ability but has been pleagued with injuries through his pro career.  He's worth the gamble this season as, without many weapons in this Dolphins offense, he should get plenty of targets but in dynasty leagues his concussion history is a major concern.

Player Update Trent Richardson, RB - Free Agent | Colts waive Trent Richardson
12 Mar 2015 - 5:32pm

The Colts have waived Trent Richardson. No surprise here as the writing has been on the wall for some time.  Richardson struggled mightily with the Colts and by the end of last season was essentialy removed from the depth chart, playing only in special teams packages.  Richardson is still young and will get a shot with another team but likely won't have much of a role until he shows that he can run with power and decisiveness.

Player Update Ryan Mathews, RB - Free Agent | Eagles sign Ryan Mathews
12 Mar 2015 - 5:07pm

The Eagles have signed former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews to a three-year, $11.5 million deal. This comes as a bit of a surprise as the Eagles just inked DeMarco Murray to a large deal. The Eagles backfield will turn into a committee with Murray as the "lead" and Mathews playing the role of a high-end breather back.  Darren Sproles' role will remain as a gadget back.

Player Update Justin Forsett, RB - Free Agent | Ravens expected to re-sign Justin Forsett
12 Mar 2015 - 2:33pm

The Ravens have agreed to terms with Justin Forsett to a three-year, $9 million deal. With the departure of Gary Kubiak, Forsett isn't likely to have the same success as last season even though the Ravens' coaching staff have said that they plan to keep the successful zone-block run system in place.  We expect the Ravens will work in Lorenzo Taliaferro more this season and this backfield will likely turn into more of a committee.

Player Update Dwayne Bowe, WR - Free Agent | Chiefs to release Dwayne Bowe
12 Mar 2015 - 2:06pm

As expected, the Chiefs are going to release Dwayne Bowe. Bowe has been mis-used by Andy Reid and while he is on the downslope of his career, he won't have a hard time finding work and could even be due for a bit of a resurgence this season if he lands in the right system.

Player Update Demarco Murray, RB - Free Agent | Eagles expected to sign DeMarco Murray
12 Mar 2015 - 1:58pm

The Eagles are expected to sign former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray to a five-year, $42 million deal, including $21 million guaranteed. As expected Murray will likely jump ship for more money and if this deal materializes, he'll be in a great situation for success. The Eagles have a solid offensive line and can move the ball consistently on offense.  If the deal goes through it'll mean Ryan Mathews will likely sign elsewhere. Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will now form the Cowboys backfield but expect to see more Ryan Williams as well.

Player Update Eddie Royal, WR - Free Agent | Bears sign Eddie Royal
11 Mar 2015 - 11:08pm

The Bears have signed former Chargers wideout Eddie Royal to a three-year deal. Royal was productive last season but always tends to do work in spurts. He'll be reunited with Jay Cutler and should have an immediate impact on the Bears passing game, playing along side Alshon Jeffery and Marquess Wilson. There isn't tons of dynasty value here but he could be a decent WR4/5 option this season.

Player Update Andre Johnson, WR - Free Agent | Colts expected to sign Andre Johnson
11 Mar 2015 - 4:37pm

The Colts have agreed to terms with former Texans' wideout Andre Johnson on a three-year, $21 million deal. While clearly not a long-term answer for the Colts WR1 position, Johnson will take over Reggie Wayne's role opposite T.Y. Hilton with Donte Moncrief getting worked in on three-receiver sets. This is a boost for Andrew Luck as Johnson still has some production left in the tank and will be playing with an extra chip on his shoulder when they face up against the Texans twice this season.

Player Update Ryan Mathews, RB - Free Agent | Eagles expected to sign Ryan Mathews
11 Mar 2015 - 2:42pm

The Eagles have agreed to terms with former Chargers' running back Ryan Mathews on a three-year, $11.5 million deal including $5 million guaranteed. With the departure of LeSean McCoy and the botched Frank Gore deal, Mathews has a good chance of being the Eagles' lead back this season. Throughout his career, Mathews has been effective when healthy and although his injury issues are a real concern for fantasy owners, he'll be in an excellant situation in Philadelphia and should flirt with RB1 numbers.

Player Update Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB - TB | Jets acquire Ryan Fitzpatrick
11 Mar 2015 - 12:15pm

The Jets have acquired Ryan Fitzpatrick from the Texans for a conditional late-round pick. While not a high-end talent, we expect Fitzpatrick to battle for the starting job and give Geno Smith a run for his money.

Player Update Jeremy Maclin, WR - Free Agent | Chiefs expected to sign Jeremy Maclin
11 Mar 2015 - 11:09am

The Chiefs have agreed to terms with former Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin on a five-year, $55 million deal including $22.5 million guaranteed. While Maclin isn't a true WR1, he's an easy upgrade to Dwayne Bowe and should give the Chiefs some semblance of a verticle game. Maclin's fantasy stocks a big hit with this move but it'll help the dwindling fantasy stock of Alex Smith.

Player Update Roy Helu, RB - Free Agent | Raiders expected to sign Roy Helu
10 Mar 2015 - 9:07pm

The Raiders have agreed to terms with former Redskins running back Roy Helu for a two year contract. Helu has long been under utilized in Washington and is a solid pass catching running back who should compliment Latavius Murray nicely. Expect to see Helu get worked in regularly this season as a change-of-pace back. He will be more consistent and trustworthy than Murray on passing downs and if the Raiders end up going to more of a hurry-up approach, Helu will be a nice asset to own.

Falling Stock Julius Thomas, TE - Free Agent | Jaguars sign Julius Thomas
10 Mar 2015 - 6:10pm

The Jaguars have signed Julius Thomas to a five-year, $46 million deal including $24 million guaranteed. While he is still raw in some respects, Thomas has great hands and has learned his craft under Peyton Manning.  He gives an immediate fantasy boost to Blake Bortles and the Jaguars offense but Thomas' fantasy value itself takes a dip.

Player Update Torrey Smith, WR - CAR | 49ers sign Torrey Smith
10 Mar 2015 - 4:59pm

The 49ers have signed former Ravens' wideout Torrey Smith to a five-year, $40 million deal including $22 million guaranteed. The move gives Colin Kaepernick's fantasy value a boost.

Player Update Sam Bradford, QB - ARZ | Eagles trade Nick Foles for Sam Bradford
10 Mar 2015 - 4:11pm

The Eagles have acquired Sam Bradford from the Rams for Nick Foles and a draft pick. Chip Kelly has never been sold on Foles and will know have the opportunity to run his offense with a decent quarterback under center.  While there are major injury concerns with Bradford, this move gives his fantasy stock a huge bump.  Conversely, Foles' fantasy stock takes a big hit as he'll have to deal with the lack of talent in St. Louis. Fantasy owners will know get to see how inflated Foles' production was in Chip Kelly's quarterback friendly offense. Bradford will battle Mark Sanchez for QB1 duties in Philadelphia but we expect Bradford to come out ahead.

Player Update Jimmy Graham, TE - GB | Saints trade Jimmy Graham to Seahawks
10 Mar 2015 - 4:01pm

The Saints have traded Jimmy Graham and a fourth-round pick to the Seahwks for Center Max Unger and a first-round pick.  It's a move the Saints had to make given their salary cap situation and is also a sign that they plan to move to more of a balanced offensive approach. The moves hurts the stock of both Drew Brees and Graham and is a significant boost for Russell Wilson.

Player Update Shane Vereen, RB - Free Agent | Giants expected to sign Shane Vereen
10 Mar 2015 - 1:50pm

The Giants have agreed to terms with former Patriots' running back Shane Vereen on a three-year, $12 million deal including $5 million guaranteed. Expect the Gaints to use a committee approach with Vereen, Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. The addition of Vereen will hurt Jennings' stock especially in PPR formats. However, we expect Jennings to continue to get the majority of early downs work with Vereen being worked in on passing downs and Williams getting short yardage work.

Player Update Harry Douglas, WR - Free Agent | Titans sign Harry Douglas
10 Mar 2015 - 1:12pm

The Titans have signed former Falcons' wideout Harry Douglas to a three-year deal. He'll likely become the Titans' WR3 behind Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, replacing Nate Washington. Before his release from the Falcons, Douglas only had fantasy value as a Julio Jones handcuff and now, finding himself in Tennesse, he has almost zero fantasy value.
