  Chiefs | KC adds Daurice Fountain    Mon May 17, 02:09 PM

Free-agent WR Daurice Fountain (Colts) signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, May 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fountain must have impressed during his tryout. He has electricity to his game but his pro career has been set back by injuries. In crazy deep dynasty formats we'll monitor him, especially since he's with the Chiefs.

  49ers | Marqise Lee to Niners    Mon May 17, 11:45 AM

Free-agent WR Marqise Lee (Patriots) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the San Francisco 49ers Monday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Lee hasn't played a full season since 2017, but he did enough in his tryout with the 49ers to stick around a bit longer. If healthy, the veteran could easily make the team with his skill set and starting experience. It looks like his deep dynasty stock has a slight uptick.

  Bengals | Trent Taylor to Bengals    Mon May 17, 09:58 AM

Free-agent WR Trent Taylor (49ers) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Taylor is a classic slot receiver who is quick on underneath routes. He's battled with injuries during his time with the 49ers and now gets a fresh start with the Bengals. We'll see if he can stay healthy and do enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

  Bears | Chicago signing Chris Lacy    Sun May 16, 03:40 PM

Free-agent WR Chris Lacy (Cowboys) agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears Sunday, May 16. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Lacy has been bouncing around the league since he was an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State in 2018. He's spent time with the Patriots, Lions and Cowboys. Now, he'll get a chance to prove himself with the Bears. There's a chance for him to earn a spot behind Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney although he's a long-shot for the final roster.

  Browns | Johnnie Dixon trying out    Sun May 16, 01:26 PM

Free-agent WR Johnnie Dixon (Cardinals) is participating in the Cleveland Browns rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Originally an undrafted free agent for the Texans in 2019, the former Ohio State receiver made some plays for them in the preseason (9 catches, 77 yards) but did not make the team. The Cardinals picked him up and stashed him on their practice squad after that and since then. Dixon is a long shot to make the Browns roster and is angling to get on their practice squad.

  Giants | NYG adds Kelvin Benjamin    Sun May 16, 12:08 PM

Free-agent WR/TE Kelvin Benjamin (Chiefs) signed with the New York Giants Sunday, May 16. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Benjamin must have impressed as a tight end during his tryout. A former first-round pick of the Panthers (with GM Dave Gettleman) as a wide receiver, Benjamin hasn't played a regular season game since 2018. The Giants have Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph as their top two tight ends, and Benjamin will work to earn a spot behind them on the depth chart. With Engram's propensity to get banged up, Benjamin might see some playing time (if he makes the 53-man roster).

  Rams | Four draft picks signed by LAR    Sun May 16, 08:57 AM

The Los Angeles Rams announced the signings of RB Jake Funk, WR Ben Skowronek, DE Earnest Brown and LB Chris Garrett to rookie contracts Sunday, May 16. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Funk is a hard-charging running back with some burst to break off chunk plays. He suffered an ACL injury to the same knee in 2018 and 2019 so durability is a concern. Funk will work primarily as a special teams player but if given the opportunity there is some natural skill that could be used on offense.

  Giants | Kelvin Benjamin looking comfortable    Sat May 15, 06:03 PM

Free-agent TE Kelvin Benjamin (Chiefs) spent 'considerable time' working with head coach Joe Judge at New York Giants minicamp Saturday, May 15, according to Art Stapleton of The Record. It's unknown if Benjamin will stay with the team beyond the weekend.

  Ravens | Rashod Bateman draws praise    Sat May 15, 01:22 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman's showing in the team's rookie minicamp so far drew praise from head coach John Harbaugh on Saturday, May 15. 'Impressions are very positive,' Harbaugh said during a news conference. 'He's a no-nonsense guy, has a nice demeanor about him. He's a quick learner. He's everything we thought he would be in terms of the athleticism, the skillset. That's usually the case, but not always the case. What you see is not always what you get. You don't know until you get them out there, in really the first rookie minicamp. And I would say that he is as advertised from a talent standpoint.'

Footballguys view: Bateman should be drawing rave reviews. It's rookie minicamp and not much goes on, but there is some footage of him making difficult grabs against air and that gets people excited. We love his route-running ability and Bateman should immediately become a favorite of QB Lamar Jackson. The Ravens are a run-heavy offense, and that's going to limit the production of Bateman. Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board at WR58 (12.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Davante Adams made routes count    Sat May 15, 12:50 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams led the league with an average of 2.96 receiving yards per route run in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: Adams is fantastic, and he's the favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers. With Rodgers perhaps wanting out of Green Bay, Adams fantasy value may change drastically if he's catching passes from Jordan Love (or Drew Lock?). Stay tuned.

  49ers | Marqise Lee at minicamp    Fri May 14, 10:12 PM

Free-agent WR Marqise Lee (Patriots) is participating in the San Francisco 49ers rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Lee had fine seasons for the Jaguars back in 2016 and 2017, but it's been all downhill for him since then. He's just trying to hang on in the league with this 49ers tryout.

  Falcons | Atlanta invites five to try out    Fri May 14, 10:02 PM

Free-agent QB Jake Dolegala (Patriots), DE Eli Ankou (Cowboys), DT Olive Sagapolu (Lions) and LB Curtis Bolton (Texans) are participating in the Atlanta Falcons rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Undrafted free-agent WR C.J. Saunders (Ohio State) is also trying out for the team.

  Chiefs | Daurice Fountain trying out    Fri May 14, 09:39 PM

Free-agent WR Daurice Fountain (Colts) is participating in the Kansas City Chiefs rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Fountain was a super deep sleeper when he joined the Colts a few years ago. However, injuries have derailed his career and took away most every chance he's had to impress. If healthy, Fountain can make plays but he's a long shot to make the Chiefs on this tryout.

  Cowboys | Four UDFAs join Dallas    Fri May 14, 09:00 PM

Undrafted free-agent SS Tyler Coyle (Purdue), WR Brennan Eagles (Texas), TE Nick Eubanks (Michigan) and TE Nick Ralston (Louisiana-Lafayette) signed with the Dallas Cowboys Friday, May 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Bills | Four players trying out    Fri May 14, 07:56 PM

Free-agent WR Isaiah Ford (Dolphins), LB Joe Giles-Harris (Jaguars), DT Nazair Jones (Seahawks) and DT Eddie Vanderdoes (Texans) are participating in the Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Ford has had a cup of coffee in the league. He's strong after the catch and his experience might get him a shot if he impresses in this tryout.

  Ravens | Tylan Wallace under contract    Fri May 14, 07:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens fourth-round draft choice WR Tylan Wallace signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Friday, May 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Wallace has explosiveness and was one of the most productive receivers in the FBS. Over the last three years, he's averaged over 100 yards per game. Even though he's not a huge wide receiver, Wallace can win contested catches. Over the last three years, he's got 43 contested catches to his credit - most in the FBS. He needs to improve his routes in order to play up to his potential in the pros, but Wallace has the skill set and proven production to monitor in dynasty formats.

  Giants | Kelvin Benjamin working at TE    Fri May 14, 07:06 PM

Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Chiefs) is working at tight end during the New York Giants rookie minicamp this weekend. He is participating on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Benjamin is a big-bodied wide receiver who hasn't played a regular season game since 2018. Moving to tight end could work as he could provide matchup problems for linebackers and safeties. We'll see if Benjamin can impress during this tryout.

  Rams | Tutu Atwell agrees to terms    Fri May 14, 06:32 PM

Los Angeles Rams second-round draft choice WR Tutu Atwell agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Rams Friday, May 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Atwell is explosive and can take short passes and turn them into long gains. He's incredibly small (165 pounds) but not many defenders get a chance to get a big hit on him. Atwell relies on his speed and explosiveness and lacks nuance as a route runner. Most of his snaps were from the slot, and over the last two years about 25 percent of his passes were behind the line of scrimmage. He's a gadget player but working with Sean McVay makes Atwell a player to watch.

  Seahawks | Two draft choices under contract    Fri May 14, 05:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks second-round draft choice WR D'Wayne Eskridge and sixth-round draft choice OT Stone Forsythe agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Seahawks Friday, May 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Eskridge can flat out fly down the field. He averaged over 20 yards per catch over the last two seasons and is one of the most explosive players in this draft class. Eskridge is not a refined route runner and has limited experience lining up in the slot. Undersized at 5-foot, 9-inches and 190 pounds, we'll see how his blazing speed and limited route tree impact him as a rookie.

  Broncos | Daesean Hamilton has torn ACL    Fri May 14, 05:02 PM

Denver Broncos WR Daesean Hamilton (knee) recently suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Hamilton was supposed to be released on Thursday. Then, it was revealed he might get traded away instead. Now, he's got an ACL injury and won't be able to pass a physical. He'll struggle to find a team in 2021 depending on how long his recovery takes from this injury.

  Dolphins | Jaylen Waddle contract terms    Fri May 14, 02:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle on Friday, May 14, signed a four-year rookie contract worth $27,085,996 with a signing bonus of $17,058,904. Waddle will have a 2021 salary cap figure of $4,924,726.

  Dolphins | Jaylen Waddle signs rookie deal    Fri May 14, 11:47 AM

Miami Dolphins first-round pick WR Jaylen Waddle (Alabama) signed his four-year, fully guaranteed contract Friday, May 14. Financial terms weren't disclosed, and all first-round picks have an option for a fifth year.

Footballguys view: Waddle was arguably the best wide receiver in this draft class. He's already got a connection with QB Tua Tagovailoa from their days together in college at Alabama, and that chemistry should show up quickly on the field in the pros. Waddle was mainly used in the slot but he does have experience lining up out wide. Despite his size (182 pounds) Waddle is strong at the catch point, and he's got speed, speed and more speed. Waddle looks like the total package at the wide receiver position and can have fantasy relevance from day one. He could easily outperform his current ADP of WR57 (12.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Kelvin Benjamin expected to try out    Thu May 13, 09:43 PM

Free-agent WR Kelvin Benjamin (Chiefs) is expected to participate in the New York Giants rookie minicamp this weekend on a tryout basis, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Giants are updating their emergency list here with a player GM Dave Gettlemen knows from his days in Carolina. Benjamin hasn't played in a regular season game since 2018 and is no longer the player he used to be.

  Vikings | Three draft picks reach deals    Thu May 13, 09:36 PM

Minnesota Vikings fifth-round draft choice WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette, fifth-round draft choice TE Zach Davidson and sixth-round draft choice DT Jaylen Twyman agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Vikings Thursday, May 13, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Smith-Marsette has a nice size/speed combination and can get by defenders with ease. He has "late hands" when passes are incoming, so he doesn't tip off cornerbacks that he's going to make a catch. Smith-Marsette is buried on the depth chart now, but he could develop into a no.3 receiver for the Vikings in the future. Watch him in dynasty formats.

  Cowboys | Four picks agree to terms    Thu May 13, 09:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys fifth-round draft choice WR Simi Fehoko, sixth-round draft choice DT Quinton Bohanna, sixth-round draft choice S Israel Mukuamu and seventh-round draft choice OG Matt Farniok agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Cowboys Thursday, May 13, according to sources. Financia terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fehoko is a downfield threat as evidenced by his school record 23.6 yards per catch in 2019. Over 77 percent of his passes went for a first down or a touchdown during his college career at Stanford. Fehoko can run by defenders and is physical at the catch point. We'll watch him in dynasty formats in that high-powered Cowboys offense.

  Football Team | Nine draft picks sign contracts    Thu May 13, 08:54 PM

Washington Football Team second-round draft choice OT Samuel Cosmi, third-round draft choices CB Benjamin St-Juste and WR Dyami Brown, fourth-round draft choice TE John Bates, fifth-round draft choice S Darrick Forrest Jr., sixth-round draft choice LS Camaron Cheeseman and seventh-round draft choices DE William Bradley-King, DE Shaka Toney and WR Dax Milne signed four-year contracts with Washington Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brown is a player Fantasy GMs should monitor as he goes through training camp with Washington. He can turn defenders around and has the speed to take the top off the defense to provide a big-play target down the field for his quarterback. Milne was a steady receiver in college and a favorite target of no.2 overall draft pick Zach Wilson (Jets). We'll see how his skill set translates to the pro level.

Simmons (West Virginia) and S Lawrence White (Iowa State) signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, May 13. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

  Chiefs | KC signs rest of draft class    Thu May 13, 07:29 PM

Kansas City Chiefs second-round draft choice C Creed Humphrey, fourth-round draft choice DE Joshua Kaindoh, fifth-round draft choice TE Noah Gray and fifth-round draft choice WR Cornell Powell signed four-year contracts with the Chiefs Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The player we are most interested in here is Powell. He may be a no.2 receiver for the Chiefs someday, a role that would have plenty of fantasy value. Powell has great ball skills and can track passes down field with ease. He needs to clean up his route running but the skill is there for him to be a no.2 in the league. Gray is a player we'll monitor in dynasty formats, and his skill set is that of an H-back/Tight End who can contribute as a receiver and as a blocker.

  Browns | Cleveland signs three rookies    Thu May 13, 07:24 PM

Cleveland Browns fifth-round draft choice LB Tony Fields II, fifth-round draft choice S Richard LeCounte III and sixth-round draft choice RB Demetric Felton signed four-year contracts with the Browns Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Felton is listed as a running back, but he's really built like a slot receiver. He can contribute out of the backfield and is dangerous in space with his ankle-breaking quickness. He can also line up in the slot and catch passes, so it will be interesting to see how Cleveland uses him as a gadget player.

  Titans | Tennessee signs four picks    Thu May 13, 07:15 PM

Tennessee Titans second-round draft choice OT Dillon Radunz, fourth-round draft choice WR Dez Fitzpatrick, sixth-round draft choice WR Racey McMath and sixth-round draft choice S Brady Breeze signed four-year contracts with the Titans Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is a player we're excited about. He lined up mostly in the "X" receiver spot on the outside during his college career at Louisville. He has good ball skills and concentration which will make him a trusted target for QB Ryan Tannehill in the Titans offense. Fitzpatrick isn't overly fast or overly physical so that limits his fantasy potential.

  Bills | Two draft picks under contract    Thu May 13, 06:36 PM

Buffalo Bills fifth-round draft choice OT Tommy Doyle and sixth-round draft choice WR Marquez Stevenson signed four-year contracts with the Bills Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Stevenson is a big play waiting to happen. He's struggled with injuries (collarbone, knee, ankle) over his college career but when healthy he's a dangerous playmaker as a receiver or return man. Stevenson can make sharp cuts and doesn't lose much speed when he makes a move. We'll monitor him in dynasty formats.

  Ravens | Baltimore signs seven UDFAs    Thu May 13, 06:08 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Kenji Bahar (Monmouth), OT Adrian Ealy (Oklahoma), DT Xavier Kelly (Arkansas), OT Foster Sarell (Stanford), WR Donte Sylencieux (Graceland), LB Barrington Wade (Iowa) and S Ar'Darius Washington (Texas Christian) signed with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, May 13. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

  49ers | San Fran inks several rookies    Thu May 13, 05:22 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell, S Talanoa Hufanga, DB Deommodore Lenoir, OG Jaylon X. Moore and OG Aaron Banks have signed their four-year rookie contracts. Financial terms are slotted based on draft placement. Undrafted free-agent LB Justin Hilliard, LB Elijah Sullivan and WR Austin Watkins Jr. agreed to terms on undisclosed contracts.

Footballguys view: Mitchell is a player who could have a lot of success in the 49ers offense if given the chance. He's a quick-cutting running back who can get to and through the hole in a hurry. Mitchell can also thrive as a receiver out of the backfield. We'll see how Mitchell competes with fellow rookie Trey Sermon to establish a pecking order.

  Broncos | DaeSean Hamilton cut    Thu May 13, 04:49 PM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton was waived Thursday, May 13, after the team failed to find a trading partner.

Footballguys view: Hamilton was supposed to be a guy who developed into a no.2 receiver for the Broncos ala Emmanuel Sanders but that never happened. Instead, Hamilton was banged up, struggled with drops and seemed to lose confidence when he was on the field. He needed a fresh start and should have a few teams interested in his services.

  Panthers | Carolina signs 5 draft picks    Thu May 13, 12:41 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard, CB Keith Taylor Jr., OL Deonte Brown, WR Shi Smith and LS Thomas Fletcher on Thursday, May 13, signed their four-year rookie contracts.

Footballguys view: Hubbard is a player we are excited about, and he'll work to be the primary backup to Christian McCaffrey in 2021. The rookie running back from Oklahoma State knows how to stick his foot in the ground and go! He's a hard-charging running back and there's little wasted motion (or nuance) to what Hubbard does. If he wins the no.2 job, then Hubbard will be a high-value handcuff for Fantasy GMs. Smith is a speedy receiver who can make crazy catches. We'll monitor him in deep dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Seth Williams agrees to terms    Wed May 12, 09:20 PM

Denver Broncos sixth-round draft choice WR Seth Williams agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Broncos Wednesday, May 12, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Williams is a big-bodied target who can fly down the field and make circus catches. He doesn't do much after the catch, and Williams is currently buried on the depth chart in Denver. We'll see if he can make the 53-man roster or if he has to make it up through the practice squad as a rookie.

  Texans | Nico Collins signs rookie pact    Wed May 12, 06:42 PM

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins signed his four-year rookie contract with the Houston Texans Wednesday, May 12, according to his agents. Financials terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Collins is a big-bodied rookie from Michigan the Texans picked up in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft. He knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders and can use his build up speed to attack a defense deep. Collins will push for a job behind Brandin Cooks on the depth chart.

  Ravens | Rashod Bateman inks rookie deal    Wed May 12, 05:01 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman signed his four-year rookie contract Wednesday, May 12. The deal includes a fifth-year team option.

Footballguys view: Bateman brings a skill set to the field that the Ravens don't have in their wide receiver corps. He's a skilled route runner who should quickly become a favorite target of QB Lamar Jackson. It's a run-heavy offense, so that limits the fantasy potential of Bateman in 2021.

  Vikings | Justin Jefferson worked with Kellen Mond    Tue May 11, 06:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kellen Mond worked out with WR Justin Jefferson this offseason before the 2021 NFL Draft, Jefferson said Tuesday, May 11. 'I feel like he's going to be a good player on this team,' Jefferson said. 'He has a very strong arm. ... I think he will be a great addition to this team.'

Footballguys view: Mond is an interesting prospect because of his skill set and his landing spot. He's an athletic quarterback who can work well in a Kubiak/Shanahan system where bootlegs and rollouts are the order of the day. Mond is a "pure sight" thrower who needs to get better with his anticipation as a thrower to thrive in the NFL. He'll develop behind Kirk Cousins and great to see him working out with Jefferson.

  Bears | Allen Robinson king of the contested catch    Tue May 11, 02:27 PM

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson has posted a league-high 47 contested catches since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: That's what makes Robinson one of the best in the game. The Bears have Andy Dalton and rookie first-round pick Justin Fields competing for the starting job this offseason. No matter who is slinging the rock, the best plan is to target Robinson early and often. Robinson has a current ADP of WR11 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
