  Colts | Daurice Fountain signs tender    Tue Mar 31, 04:49 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Daurice Fountain signed his contract tender for the 2020 season Tuesday, March 31.

Footballguys view: We'll still keep an eye on Fountain in super crazy deep dynasty formats. When healthy, Fountain has good quickness and body control as a receiver.

  Cardinals | Arizona discussing DeAndre Hopkins' contract    Tue Mar 31, 03:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins has had 'some conversations' with general manager Steve Keim regarding his contract, according to chairman Michael Bidwill Tuesday, March 31.

Footballguys view: Hopkins has three years remaining on his deal and is going to get paid around $13 million annually. That's low for his skill set and production level that should continue with his new team. Reporters have speculated that Hopkins wants around $18-20 million per year, so you can see how far off the two sides are. Worst case scenario, Hopkins holds out for a new deal but chances of that seem low. We'll see if the Cardinals re-works his deal to get him more money.

  Bills | Isaiah McKenzie to Buffalo a done deal    Mon Mar 30, 10:21 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie officially signed an undisclosed contract with the team Monday, March 30.

Footballguys view: McKenzie is a gadget player who has found a home with the Bills. He'll work as a No.4 receiver and get some action on jet sweeps or screen passes.

  Seahawks | Seattle officially adds Phillip Dorsett    Mon Mar 30, 07:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Phillip Dorsett's contract was officially processed by the league Monday, March 30.

Footballguys view: Dorsett gives Seattle plenty of speed at the wide receiver position. He'll be competing for the No.3 spot on the depth chart behind Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Geremy Davis (Chargers) officially signed with the Detroit Lions Monday, March 30. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick of the Giants in 2015, Davis is a reserve receiver and special teams player. The Lions won't be targeting him much on offense.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel not expected to be moved    Mon Mar 30, 04:07 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is not on the trade block and likely will not be moved this offseason, according to The Athletic's Joseph Person.

Footballguys view: There was some speculation that Samuel could be on the move via trade. With the addition of Robby Anderson in free agency, the Panthers seem to have a new No.1 receiver. We think Samuel could be a fine fit with new starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Samuel is super quick and dangerous after the catch on short passes.

  Vikings | Minnesota checks in with Jarius Wright    Mon Mar 30, 03:51 PM

Free-agent WR Jarius Wright (Panthers) has received some interest from the Minnesota Vikings but is not expected to join the Vikings, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Wright played with the Vikings for six years after he was a fourth-round pick for them coming out of Arkansas in 2012. He'll be looking for work as a reserve receiver and special teams player.

  Lions | Marvin Jones sets big goal    Mon Mar 30, 02:28 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he wants to catch at least 15 touchdowns this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Jones caught 10 touchdowns once in his career back in 2013 when he played for the Bengals. Catching 15 would be quite the career high total, and it would have to come with Matthew Stafford staying healthy for a full 16-game season.

  Rams | Brandin Cooks not on the trade block    Mon Mar 30, 10:29 AM

Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks is not on the trading block, according to two sources.

Footballguys view: There was some buzz a couple of weeks ago that the Rams could be shopping Cooks. In fact, the reports speculated that Cooks had been on the trade block for most of the offseason but had no takers. It looks like he's not going anywhere and will stay with the Rams to stretch the field with his incredible speed.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton hard to bring down    Sun Mar 29, 05:34 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton led all receivers with 12 broken tackles on receptions in 2019. Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, former Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp tied for second among receivers with nine.

Footballguys view: Sutton is big, fast and physical. He had a breakout season as a sophomore in 2019 with 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. The best is still yet to come with Sutton as he did all that last year while working with three different (Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, Drew Lock) quarterbacks last year. Expect him to be a favorite target of Lock with borderline WR1 production for Fantasy GMs.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman lacked sure hands last season    Sun Mar 29, 05:16 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was charged with a league-high 13 drops in 2019 - five more than he had in 2018.

Footballguys view: Edelman is going to have a different quarterback tossing him passes this year with Tom Brady gone to the Buccaneers. We'll see if he can be more sure-handed to help out the team's new starter.

  Lions | Geronimo Allison stays in the division, joins Lions    Sun Mar 29, 12:42 PM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Geronimo Allison (Packers) agreed to a one-year, $910,000 contract Sunday, March 29, and the deal includes a $137,500 signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Allison is big and athletic, and now he gets a fresh start with the Lions. He's good at tracking the ball and has the body control to make plays near the sideline or the back of the end zone.

  Saints | Emmanuel Sanders a good fit?    Sat Mar 28, 11:59 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders' ability to find openings in zone coverage makes him a good fit for head coach Sean Payton's system, according to Matt Bowen of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Sanders is a great fit for the Saints. He should make for a fine target opposite of Michael Thomas in 2020.

  Eagles | Philly counting on JJ Arcega-Whiteside    Sat Mar 28, 09:35 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside 'needs to take a big jump' in 2020 now that he is fully healthy, according to general manager Howie Roseman.

Footballguys view: The 2019 second-round pick from Stanford only played in 10 games as a rookie, compiling just 10 catches for 169 yards and one touchdown. The Eagles have a ho-hum (at best) wide receiver corps and could use more talent in the room. Arcega-Whiteside will be in for a role opposite of Alshon Jeffery in 2020.

  Texans | Randall Cobb better than ever?    Sat Mar 28, 09:01 PM

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb said he feels better than he has in at least five years after focusing on improving his hamstring strength during his time with the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: That's cool but we'll believe it when we see it. Cobb had a resurgence last year with the Cowboys and now gets another new start in Houston. The team is going to be making up for the loss of DeAndre Hopkins and Cobb could have quite the role.

  Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson returns to KC    Sat Mar 28, 03:20 PM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Demarcus Robinson (Chiefs) will re-sign with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal, a source said Saturday, March 28. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Robinson will give the team veteran depth at the position. He's fast and athletic and knows the offense. Last year, Robinson posted 32 catches for 449 yards and four touchdowns.

  Packers | Devin Funchess contract details    Sat Mar 28, 02:51 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess received a one-year, $2.5 million contract, which includes a $1 million signing bonus, $1.2 base salary, $50,000 workout bonus and $15,625 each game active.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel a trade candidate?    Sat Mar 28, 01:23 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is a potential candidate to be traded, according to a list put out by Spotrac.com.

Footballguys view: The Panthers have added Robby Anderson and Seth Roberts to the mix at the wide receiver position. Anderson should be the top target on offense not named Christian McCaffrey. That makes Samuel a player who the team could move on from. A former second-round pick, Samuel is dangerous after the catch and could draw some interest if he was on the trade block.

  Eagles | Option picked up for Alshon Jeffery    Fri Mar 27, 06:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery had the option in his contract exercised Friday, March 27.

Footballguys view: The Eagles had to or else they would have taken on around $26 million in dead money. Jeffery is coming off Lisfranc surgery and his status for the start of the regular season is unknown. He should be ready but will be quite limited in training camp as the team eases him back into action.

  Bills | Stefon Diggs turning into a big-play machine    Thu Mar 26, 11:15 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs managed 63 catches - the second-lowest mark of his career - and was charged with a drop on 6.4 percent of his 94 targets - a dramatic increase from two percent in 2018 - but he still finished with a career-high 1,130 receiving yards in 2019 with the Minnesota Vikings due in part to averaging 13.1 yards before the catch per reception. That figure was more than double his 5.6 yards before the catch per reception the previous season.

Footballguys view: Diggs now gets to make big plays for Josh Allen. The Bills needed a true No.1 receiver and that's why they made a big trade for the veteran receiver. With Diggs on the team, John Brown will be a field-stretching No.2 receiver while Cole Beasley will continue to beat up defenses on underneath routes.

  NFL | Mike Evans, DeVante Parker moved the chains    Thu Mar 26, 11:02 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans picked up a first down on 54 of his 67 catches in 2019, while Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker did so on 58 of his 72 receptions. The resulting 80.6 percent first-down rate for both players led the league among players with at least 50 receptions.

Footballguys view: Evans and Parker should continue having big roles for their respective teams going forward. We'll see Evans instantly become a favorite target for QB Tom Brady while Parker is going to continue to do work with Ryan Fitzpatrick...until the Dolphins turn the reins of the offense over to a rookie quarterback like Tua Tagovailoa.

  Buccaneers | Antonio Brown not a fit for Bucs    Thu Mar 26, 07:35 PM

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) won't be signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Bruce Arians Thursday, March 26. 'There's no room and probably not enough money,' Arians said. 'It's just not going to happen here. It's not a fit here.'

Footballguys view: Arians is creating a culture with the Bucs that does not include the troubled wide receiver. Some felt with Tom Brady at quarterback the Bucs would add Brown but that doesn't seem to be the case.

  Jaguars | Terry Godwin sticks with Jacksonville    Thu Mar 26, 06:45 PM

Free-agent WR Terry Godwin re-signed an undisclosed contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, March 26.

Footballguys view: Godwin is a player we appreciate but only in crazy deep dynasty formats. He's a quick receiver who has a feisty playing style at the wide receiver position. We'll see if he can stay healthy and make the Jags 53-man roster in 2020.

  Panthers | Seth Roberts terms    Thu Mar 26, 08:07 AM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers WR Seth Roberts received a one-year, $3.75 million deal.

Footballguys view: Roberts is an interesting add by the Panthers, especially after they already got Robby Anderson earlier in free agency. He's a speed guy, like Anderson, but Roberts is going to be working for a spot on the end of the depth chart.

  Redskins | Washington adding Cody Latimer    Wed Mar 25, 08:56 PM

Free-agent WR Cody Latimer (Giants) agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 25, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Latimer has bounced around the league to a few teams now and has yet to play up to the potential he showed as a second-round pick (Broncos) out of Indiana in the 2014 NFL draft. He's got size and can make plays 'above the rim' but Latimer is going to be battling for a backup spot in Washington. The depth chart is wide open behind Terry McLaurin, so Latimer might work his way further up than some think.

  Raiders | Nelson Agholor officially joins Vegas    Wed Mar 25, 08:21 PM

Free-agent WR Nelson Agholor (Eagles) officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick for the Eagles in the 2015 NFL draft, Agholor didn't live up to his potential in Philadelphia. We expect the Raiders to address the WR position in the NFL draft, perhaps with a premium pick. A move like that would push Agholor to No.4 on the depth chart with guys like Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow already on the roster.

  Falcons | Atlanta officially signs Laquon Treadwell    Wed Mar 25, 07:48 PM

Free-agent WR Laquon Treadwell (Vikings) officially signed with the Atlanta Falcons Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick for the Vikings in the 2016 NFL draft, Treadwell never played up to his massive potential. We'll see if a fresh start with the Falcons helps. He is not a lock for the 53-man roster.

  Panthers | DeAndrew White returning    Wed Mar 25, 06:47 PM

Free-agent WR DeAndrew White (Panthers) signed a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, March 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Alabama in 2015, White has bounced around to a few different teams. He was with the Panthers in 2018 and 2019 on their practice squad and for a handful of games on the active roster. White's spot on the 53-man roster is no guarantee.

  Vikings | Tajae Sharpe will be a Viking    Wed Mar 25, 11:51 AM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Tajae Sharpe (Titans) is signing a one-year deal Wednesday, March 25, with the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source. Financial terms were undisclosed. He likely will be the No. 2 receiver opposite WR Adam Thielen.

Footballguys view: Sharpe may be the No.2 option for the Vikings now, but we expect they'll address the WR position in the 2020 NFL draft. This is the greatest WR draft class in NFL history and the Vikings should be able to find a starting caliber WR easily.

  Lions | Marvin Jones ridiculously efficient in 2019    Tue Mar 24, 11:56 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in 10 receptions and scored eight times on 14 red zone targets last season. He also tallied six catches and scored five times on his nine targets inside the 10.

Footballguys view: Jones should be even better this year with a full return of QB Matthew Stafford. The Lions passing game as a whole should see a bump in production so long as Stafford can stay healthy.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans nearly unstoppable in close    Tue Mar 24, 11:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans managed to catch only four of his 10 targets inside the 10 last season, but he was able to score on each of them.

Footballguys view: Tom Brady's favorite target near pay dirt should be Evans in 2020. The Buccaneers are going to continue to feed Evans so he'll get his 1,000 yards receiving and be one of the most fantasy relevant WRs in 2020.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp very efficient near goal line    Tue Mar 24, 11:38 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp finished in a tie for fifth in the league with 10 targets inside the 10 last season, but he finished with a league-best eight receptions and scored six touchdowns - tied for best in the NFL - with those opportunities.

Footballguys view: Kupp is quick on underneath routes and he knows how to find his way in tight spaces. He should continue to be a big target in the red zone this season.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay busy near end zone in 2019    Tue Mar 24, 11:26 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay paced the NFL with 13 targets inside the 10 last season, while his seven catches inside the 10 was tied for second in the league and his six scores inside the same area was tied for first.

Footballguys view: Golladay was able to put up some great numbers last year even though the Lions went through three quarterbacks (Matthew Stafford, Jeff Driskel, David Blough) in 2019. With Stafford back healthy at quarterback, Golladay and the passing game for the Lions should get a bump.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett dominant inside red zone    Tue Mar 24, 11:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett led the league with 23 targets and 17 receptions inside the 20 last season. His seven red zone touchdowns left him in a four-way tie for third in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Lockett finished 2019 as the No.16 fantasy receiver in standard-scoring leagues. He's got the ability to be a top-12 receiver each year, and higher in PPR leagues, due to his role in the Seattle offense and connection with QB Russell Wilson.

  Packers | Devin Funchess is set to sign with Green Bay    Tue Mar 24, 07:25 PM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Devin Funchess (Colts) is expected to sign an undisclosed contract with the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Funchess only appeared in one game last year for the Colts. It was a collarbone injury that kept him out most of the season. Funchess brings some more size to the Packers WR room but doesn't have much fantasy value.

  Jets | Breshad Perriman heads to the New York Jets    Tue Mar 24, 07:19 PM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Breshad Perriman (Buccaneers) is signing a one-year worth up to $8 million Tuesday, March 24, with the New York Jets, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Of the $8 million, $6 million will be guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The Jets were not able to keep Robby Anderson as he signed with the Panthers, so they needed a speed receiver. Perriman is still fast and he was productive last year for the Buccaneers, finally playing up to his first-round potential. He has struggled with injuries as a pro but was able to stay healthy and produce in 2019. We'll see if he can build on that success in 2020 with the Jets.

  Ravens | Chris Moore sticks around in Baltimore    Tue Mar 24, 05:24 PM

Free-agent WR Chris Moore (Ravens) re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens on an undisclosed contract Tuesday, March 24, according to a source.

Free-agent WR Robby Anderson (Jets) is signing a two-year deal worth $20 million with the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Panthers add more speed to the WR position with this move. Anderson was on the open market a bit longer than we thought he would be. We'll see how he meshes with new Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater. Anderson will earn $12 million in the first year of the deal.

Free-agent WR Travis Benjamin (Chargers) will sign a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source Tuesday, March 24. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: The 49ers lost Emmanuel Sanders (Saints) in free agency and needed help at the position. Benjamin has good speed and plenty of experience in the pros. We'll see how he works his way onto the depth chart with his new team.

Free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, March 24. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dorsett was one of the speed receivers available in free agency. The Seahawks have size in DK Metcalf and quickness in Tyler Lockett. Dorsett will work his way onto the depth chart behind those two.

Free-agent WR Corey Coleman (Giants) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New York Giants Monday, March 23, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Coleman suffered a torn ACL last July with the Giants and missed the entire 2019 season. He's staying with the team and Fantasy GMs need to know that he was working as a No.3 receiver at points during OTAs and minicamp last year. We'll see if Coleman can stay healthy and earn a spot on the 53-man roster.
