  • ATL Tight End #8
    “We’re not oblivious to the fact of his skill sets, what he does bring to the team from a receiving standpoint, so there are a lot of things that you can do to be creative and use his skill set in the pass game,” Koger told the team’s website. “But with him and the way we’re going to run the ball and the athleticism he does have, there are a lot of things he can do in the run game to help us out to win football games. ... You’ll see him all over the field, not just out wide but also in the box.” Koger’s comments come a week after new Falcons offensive coordinator Zac Robinson said Pitts has “formational versatility” and would be used across the formation in 2024. It’s not exactly what fantasy managers want to hear about the hyper-athletic Pitts, who was relegated to a bit role in Arthur Smith’s offense over the past three seasons. Pro Football Focus graded Pitts’ run blocking 109th out of 110 qualifying tight ends in 2023. One-third of his snaps last season were spent run blocking. It would be a surprise if Atlanta’s new coaching staff did not deploy Pitts in a more fantasy friendly way.
  • CHI Coaching Staff
    King spent the last three seasons as the Commanders’ assistant running backs coach, making her mark as the first black woman to be a full-time NFL coach in 2021. She has worked with running backs like Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson and now gets a new opportunity with the Bears. King will be an offensive assistant working with running backs, set to work with backs like Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson.
  • FA Safety #21
    Walker has spent his entire career with the Lions after being drafted in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The 29-year-old has three career interceptions, playing in all 17 games during the 2023 season after suffering an Achilles tear to end his 2022 season. The move creates $5.5 million in cap space for the Lions while making Walker a free agent heading into the offseason.
  • SEA Running Back #9
    Macdonald, who hired former Washington Huskies offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb as Seattle’s OC, said the team would stress controlling the ball and maximizing time of possession in 2024. “We’re going to be a physical unit, we’re gonna run the football, and we want to have answers for the quarterback and we want to keep it consistent for him so he can play fast and play decisive and get the ball to our playmakers,” Macdonald said. “I know that’s kind of coach speak. But it needs to be an efficient unit, we want to be able to possess the ball, we want to be able to obviously be explosive and not turn the ball over. And I think that’s going to come through run and play action on early downs.” It’s a decidedly old-school approach that may or may not come to fruition, and it’s no surprise Macdonald preaches the run game considering his defensive background. Ken Walker would presumably be the primary beneficiary of a run-first Seattle offense, though he could split the workload with second-year back Zach Charbonnet.
  • PHI Center #62
    With little left to accomplish in his professional career, Kelce is still leaving the door open for a return in 2024. Kelce turned 36 in November and reportedly told teammates after the NFC Wild Card loss to the Buccaneers that he was retiring. This report has since been disputed, but the 13-year pro is clearly nearing the end of his playing career. The wear-and-tear of an NFL season on Kelce was highly documented in the Amazon Kelce Documentary last year, but despite a multitude of aches and pains, the veteran hasn’t missed a regular season game since 2014. Kelce is a six-time All-Pro who won the Super Bowl in 2017 with the Eagles. He’s a near lock to be a first ballot Hall of Famer whenever he does decide to hang it up, but the lure of one more run at a Super Bowl could be enough for him to return next season. As far as a timetable goes, Kelce said he thinks he’ll “have an answer in the next couple of weeks.”
  • CLE Quarterback #4
    Watson was hampered by a shoulder injury throughout much of the 2023 campaign. A brief return to the field saw him throw for 432-3-1 in his final two games before he and the team opted for season-ending shoulder surgery in mid-November. By all accounts, Watson’s surgery was “deemed successful,” and the team has already said he’ll be their starter for 2024. The first two seasons in Cleveland have been a struggle for Watson, who has thrown for 2,217-14-9 in 12 starts while going 8-4. Despite the winning record, Watson ranks 36th amongst 46 qualified QBs in EPA per play over the last two seasons. Both he and the Browns will hope he rediscovers his old form in 2024.
  • NFL Commissioner
    With that said, Florio also said another source told him the number could be higher than the suggested amount of $242 to $243 million. Regardless of the final amount, it sounds like the cap is set to increase by nearly $20 million after it topped out at a record $224.8 million last season. According to Florio, “There’s a thought that the league wants to avoid a massive spike in cap,” with TV deals and gambling money increasing. The league has seen a steady increase in cap space every year since 2014, with the exception of 2021, when it was attempting to bounce back from a 2020 season that was impacted by COVID-19. We’re only three years into the league’s salary cap exceeding $200 million, with another record-setting number appearing to be on the horizon.
  • DEN Quarterback #3
    It seems like the Broncos moving on from Wilson is more a matter of when than if. It wasn’t long ago when Wilson was once thought to be the solution to the Broncos’ quarterback woes in a post-Peyton Manning world. However, two disappointing seasons in which Wilson went 11-19 over 30 starters and an awkward benching to close out 2023 are enough to suggest the two sides are headed for a split. The Raiders have been loosely linked as a potential trade suitor for Wilson, but as Fowler notes in his latest article, trading will “is an arduous task.” The Broncos will in all likelihood, be on the hook for a hefty amount of money whenever they do move on from Wilson, who is under contract through 2028. Wilson threw for 3,070-26-8 last season and ranked 18th in EPA per play. While he’s unlikely to be the solution for any team that thinks they’re a quarterback away from a Super Bowl, Wilson would still be an upgrade for several teams in the league.
  • BAL Head Coach
    The Ravens have an interesting situation at running back. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are both set to hit free agency, and neither is particularly trustworthy at this point in their careers. and Keaton Mitchell is an explosive but undersized back who is recovering from a torn ACL. Dobbins has suffered both a torn ACL and ruptured Achilles over the last three seasons, and Edwards saw up-and-down usage during the 2023 season and will be 29 at the start of next season. Sportsbooks have already tabbed Derrick Henry as an early favorite to land with the Ravens should he and the Titans not re-up for a new deal, but with guys like Saquon Barkley, Josh Jacobs, and Tony Pollard likely to be available, the Ravens could opt for a significant upgrade at the position. Of course, they’d have some financial work to do as they project to be slightly over the salary cap at this time.
  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    As far as Evans’ future with the Bucs is concerned, this is only mildly concerning for the time being. Evans and the team will continue to discuss an extension ahead of free agency, but there’s a “soft deadline” specific to Monday that would allow the Buccaneers to offset $7.4 million in dead cap for the 2024 season if Evans and the team were able to reach an agreement. Evans will be 31 at the start of next season and has gone for 1,000-plus yards in each of his first 10 seasons in the league. Still among the league’s most productive receivers, Evans will have a bustling market should he officially get to free agency, as he could immediately raise the ceiling of any contender.
