    Jerick McKinnon Feb 25 2:10pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said that the team will work on a pay cut for running back Jerick McKinnon (knee). McKinnon said he's willing to do whatever it takes to stay with the team, so he'll have to take a pay cut or be cut after not playing in a single game with the team the last two seasons due to injuries. Even if Matt Breida is signed away by another team as a restricted free agent, McKinnon would start the 2020 season behind Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman in the backfield. And that's assuming he's fully healthy to begin the year. Unless there are multiple injuries to San Fran's top backs, McKinnon should go undrafted in the majority of leagues this fall.

    Joe Flacco Feb 25 2:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said that quarterback Joe Flacco (neck) still has not been medically cleared. The Broncos aren't set on having a veteran as the backup to Drew Lock in 2020, so it's almost inevitable that the Broncos will part ways with Flacco, who would be due $23.65 million next season. He's expected to be healthy for next season, but wherever Flacco winds up, he'll just be a backup and won't have much fantasy relevance at all in any format.

    Ndamukong Suh Feb 25 2:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said that defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh plans to play in 2020 and wants to stay with the Bucs. Suh will be a free agent next month, but the Buccaneers might look to retain him for another season. He turned 33 last month and is on the downside of his career after recording a career-low 2.5 sacks in his first season with Tampa in 2019. Suh added 41 tackles (22 solo) and four fumble recoveries, but he's no longer the force he was earlier in his career for those that play in IDP leagues.

    Hunter Henry Feb 25 1:50pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said that tight end Hunter Henry is a candidate for the franchise tag. The goal is for the two sides to work out a contract extension, but the tag will be a fallback option if they can't work something out. Henry has yet to play in a full season in his three years in the NFL, but he'd be the second most attractive tight end on the open market behind Austin Hooper if he gets there. In 12 games in 2019, Henry had 55 catches for 652 yards and five touchdowns. He'll still likely be a strong TE1 if he remains with the Bolts, but the downgrade from Philip Rivers to Tyrod Taylor or someone else under center is something to consider.

    Quincy Enunwa Feb 25 1:50pm ET

    New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas said the team is "hopeful" that wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (neck) will play football again. Enunwa played in just one game in the 2019 season and was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. His career remains up in the air, but the Jets need all the receiver help they can get with Robby Anderson likely departing in free agency. The wideout also missed five games in 2018 and is an extreme injury risk if he returns to play for Gang Green in 2020. Fantasy owners would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach with him if he continues his career.

    Patrick Mahomes Feb 25 1:40pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that he doesn't think quarterback Patrick Mahomes (knee) will need surgery after dislocating his kneecap in the middle of the season. "Right now he looks good," Reid said. "He was out throwing with Dez (Bryant) the other day so he looked like he was slinging it around pretty good. I think hes fine." Mahomes missed two games because of the knee injury, but he was just fine when he returned and led the Chiefs to the Super Bowl title over the 49ers. He wasn't quite as good in 2019 as he was when he won the MVP in 2018, but Mahomes is the most dynamic quarterback in the NFL and will be the top signal-caller off the boards in 2020 drafts, even if he has offseason surgery.

    Sammy Watkins Feb 25 1:40pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said it's unlikely that the team will retain wide receiver Sammy Watkins under his current deal. Watkins is scheduled to make $14 million in 2020. The Chiefs will meet with Watkins' representatives this week. The 26-year-old came up big in the postseason each of the last two years with KC, but has been very mediocre each of the last two regular seasons with the Chiefs. Watkins had 52 catches for 673 yards and three touchdowns for a career-low 12.9 yards per catch in 14 games in 2019. Even in the Chiefs explosive offense with Patrick Mahomes throwing him passes, Watkins was an inconsistent WR4 for fantasy owners.

    Frank Clark Feb 25 1:30pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said that defensive tackle Chris Jones, who will be a free agent in March, is a priority for the team this offseason. The Chiefs want to keep Jones and defensive end Frank Clark together, so the franchise tag is an option with Jones. The 25-year-old is a run-stuffer in the middle of KC's defensive line and tallied 36 tackles (23 solo), nine sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 13 games for the Chiefs in the regular season before helping them win the Super Bowl over the 49ers. He has 33 total sacks in his four seasons with KC after being a second-round pick in 2016.

    Kareem Hunt Feb 25 1:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry said that the team will place a tender on impending restricted free-agent running back Kareem Hunt. Despite a traffic stop in the offseason in which Hunt admitted he'd fail a drug test, the Browns would like him to return as a complement to Nick Chubb in their backfield, mainly as a pass-catching option. Suspended for the first half of 2019, Hunt ran the ball 43 times for 179 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 37 catches for 285 yards and a score through the air. He'd have more fantasy upside on another team as the primary back, but he'll continue to have RB3/flex appeal in point-per-reception leagues if the Browns bring him back.

    Le'Veon Bell Feb 25 1:10pm ET

    New York Jets head coach Adam Gase isn't sure if running back Le'Veon Bell will take part in the team's offseason program. However, Gase said "it's not a huge deal" if Bell is absent. Gase isn't a huge fan of Bell, but it'll be extremely hard for the Jets to trade Bell because of his large contract. After holding out for all of 2018, Bell had his worst season as a professional in his first year with Gang Green. He ran 245 times for 789 rushing yards (3.2 yards per carry) and only three rushing touchdowns. Bell added 66 catches for 461 yards and one receiving TD. As long as he stays with the Jets, he'll be more of an RB2 with upside in PPR leagues.

    Daniel Jones Feb 25 1:00pm ET

    New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is considering the possibility of trading back from the No. 4 overall selection in the first round of this year's draft. "Were open for business," Gettleman said. The Giants have their QB of the future in Daniel Jones, who they took in the first round last year, and they could be looking to secure multiple picks later in the draft in order to move back. The Dolphins are expected to take a quarterback at No. 5 overall, so the Giants will be open to trading back with a team that may want to jump in front of Miami to get the signal-caller that they desire.

    Matthew Stafford Feb 25 1:00pm ET

    Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn said that quarterback Matthew Stafford (back) is already working out and will be a full-go for the start of the offseason program. Stafford was on his way to a career year in 2019 before breaking his back and missing the final eight games of the season. It's a great sign that he's recovered nicely and won't miss any of the offseason workouts for Detroit. With Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola all back for 2020, Stafford will be a solid QB1 target and could potentially come at a nice price given his serious injury last season. He'll also have emerging young tight end T.J. Hockenson as a nice red-zone weapon.

    Justin Herbert Feb 25 12:50pm ET

    Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (hip) said he's expecting to be cleared by doctors on March 9. Tagovailoa will then take part in a Pro Day in early April. There are concerns about his health and his size, but he'll still likely be taken early in the first round of drafts with many teams looking for a franchise signal-caller. Most experts are predicting that the Dolphins will go after him with the fifth overall pick, but Miami is lukewarm on Tua at this point and may prefer Oregon QB Justin Herbert at this point. Another team could also trade up ahead of the Dolphins to take Tagovailoa if they really like him. Because of his hip injury, Tagovailoa and his agent have already said that they wouldn't mind him sitting and learning for a year.

    Bruce Arians Feb 25 12:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said that the team's coaches are "more than excited" about what tight end O.J. Howard can do in his second year in head coach Bruce Arians' offense in 2020. The Bucs are "very high" on him despite Howard catching 34 passes for 459 yards and a career-low one touchdown in 14 games in 2019. The 25-year-old caught the same number of passes in 2018 in only 10 games played. He was the biggest tight end bust in fantasy last year after being a breakout candidate over the summer. There's a chance that Tampa makes it a point to involve Howard more, especially in the red zone, but with Cameron Brate still around, fantasy owners will want to see it before they believe it.

    Derek Carr Feb 25 12:20pm ET

    Las Vegas Raiders general manager Mike Mayock left open the possibility that the team will look to upgrade over quarterback Derek Carr this offseason. "Every position gets evaluated every year, and if we can upgrade it, we will," Mayock said. Carr had a career-high 70.4 completion percentage and a career-high 4,054 passing yards, but he underwhelmed with just 21 touchdown passes over a full season. With Tom Brady potentially becoming available on the free-agent market next month, the Raiders could look to make a splash in their first season in Las Vegas and land the future Hall of Famer. Even if they don't and Carr remains the starter for the Black and Silver, he'll be a low-ceiling QB2 in fantasy.

    David Montgomery Feb 25 12:20pm ET

    Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace thinks running back David Montgomery can be the team's featured running back and carry a bigger workload in his sophomore season in 2020. That is if the Bears decide to run more next season. Montgomery was pretty average in his rookie campaign, rushing 242 times for 889 yards and six touchdowns on 3.7 yards per carry. There's obviously room for improvement if the 22-year-old sees more of a workload in 2020, but the quarterback situation in Chicago could hold Montgomery and the offense as a whole back. Montgomery will be more of an RB3 entering fall drafts.

    Austin Hooper Feb 25 12:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said that tight end Austin Hooper and linebacker De'Vondre Campbell will hit the free-agent market. With Atlanta up against the salary cap, it's widely believed that they won't have enough salary cap space to re-sign Hooper, who is expected to reset the tight end market after he posted career highs in catches (75), receiving yards (787) and touchdowns (six) despite missing three games with an injury in 2019. Along with potentially Hunter Henry, Hooper will be the top tight end available in free agency. He was a high-end fantasy tight end in Atlanta and he could still be that with another team, but staying with the Falcons would be the best scenario for his long-term fantasy value.

    Marquise Brown Feb 25 12:10pm ET

    Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) had offseason surgery to remove the screw from his foot, according to sources. Brown might be limited in the offseason program because of the surgery, but he's expected to be fine by training camp. Hollywood was bothered by his foot throughout his rookie season, which is why Baltimore kept his snaps limited on game day. The 22-year-old first-round pick showed flashes in his first year in the NFL, catching 46 passes for 584 yards and seven touchdowns. He's a boom-or-bust fantasy commodity as a deep threat, but his ceiling is still very high in this Ravens offense led by quarterback Lamar Jackson.

    Derrick Henry Feb 25 12:00pm ET

    Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson said that the team will "do everything we can" to keep running back Derrick Henry around. Henry, who will become a free agent next month, led the NFL with 1,540 rushing yards and tied Aaron Jones with 16 rushing touchdowns in 2019. The bruising back finished second to only Christian McCaffrey in total fantasy points. In a run-first offense under head coach Mike Vrabel, the Titans would be crazy to let Henry walk. Between Henry and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Tannehill is much more likely to move on in free agency. If Henry returns to Tennessee, he'll obviously be a high-end RB1 in fall drafts.

    Cam Newton Feb 25 12:00pm ET

    As of now, the Carolina Panthers have decided that they will move forward with quarterback Cam Newton (foot) as their starting quarterback, according to sources. Newton's foot is healing, but it will be a couple of months before he's game-ready, a timeline that complicates any potential trade. Newton will turn 31 in May and has missed 16 games in the last two seasons with shoulder and foot injuries. He played in just two games in 2019 before being shut down for the season. Newton's fantasy stock is the lowest it has been since he entered the league, but he could bounce back and be serviceable as a QB1 if he can get past his foot issues. Because of the injury risk, fantasy managers will be wary of taking him as their QB1 going into the 2020 season, but he could be a nice value if he can stay on the field.
