Join Andrew, Tommy, and Corey on the Fantasy Force this week as they play some fun games to finish out their discussion on the NFL free agency period and the impact on dynasty fantasy football. From “this or that,” to “keep, trade cut,” our guys put a fun twist on their advice on how to react to the news throughout the league.
Running back signings
Damien Williams saw his option picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs and will remain with the team in 2020. David Johnson was part of the infamous trade of Deandre Hopkins and finds himself in Houston now. Melvin Gordon signed with the Denver Broncos ahead of new running mates Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman. The guys discuss who they would keep, trade, and cut in dynasty if they had to choose, and Andrew found himself the odd man out this time around. Williams owners may want to tune this section out.
Wide receivers change teams
Multiple wide receivers saw a change in scenery in free agency and could have an impact in fantasy next year. One of the best moves by any team so far has been the addition of Emmanuel Sanders in New Orleans. Signing the capable veteran to a two-year $16 million deal to play opposite of Michael Thomas and be another reliable target for Drew Brees in his likely last season was an excellent decision.
Another wide receiver room welcoming a new face is in Houston. It seems that Bill O’Brien has found his Hopkins replacement with Randall Cobb. Three-years $27 million suggests that the veteran will play an important role on the team in the coming seasons, but just what does that mean for your fantasy rosters?
The New York Jets signed Breshad Perriman to a one-year deal to remind all Jets’ fans that Robby Anderson was underappreciated. The group of weapons around Sam Darnold is severely lacking, so is Perriman actually worth his, or your, attention next year?
Green Bay, like the Jets, added a previously disappointing wide receiver to their currently disappointing group. Devin Funchess joins up with Aaron Rodgers up north after playing in only one game in his time in Indianapolis. Will he see a career resurrection?
