Latest Player News

All Player News
  • CLG Running Back
    The result is far from what the 5' 7", 205-pound former Michigan running back was hoping for. The size and speed metrics bring his closest comp to Devonta Freeman, the latter of whom has managed to carve out a meaningful role at the NFL level despite below average size and speed. Corum remains in the discussion to be the first running back off the board in the 2024 NFL Draft.
  • FA Quarterback
    Daniels and fellow LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers both opted to skip the measurement portion of the combine and are expected to instead be measured at LSU’s Pro Day on March 27th. Daniels are Nabers are also expected to skip the workout portion of the combine, saving all drills for their Pro Day.
  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    In addition to wanting to play with an “elite quarterback,” Evans’ agent also said he wants to be “paid like a top wide receiver” and he “doesn’t want to play with a rookie QB.” Evans and the Buccaneers reportedly remain far apart on a contract extension, and it was on Friday that the veteran receiver plans to test the free agent market. If Evans truly wants to play with an “elite quarterback,” we can only assume that would rule out the Buccaneers barring something completely unexpected. Fantasy managers participating in early drafts would be wise to get in on Evans assuming he makes the jump to a high-end offense for the 2024 season.
  • NYG Tight End #12
    After previous reports from the New York Post that Waller has committed to returning to the Giants for the 2024 season, Waller came out and said, “I have not made a decision either way.” Waller is due to make $10.5 million in base salary this season and is not expected to be amongst Giants cap casualties according to the New York Post. The veteran tight end will turn 32 early into next season, and has missed 19 games over the last three years due to injuries. Waller posted a receiving line of 52-552-1 last season, but his 10.6 YPR was his lowest since he emerged as a full-time starter in 2019 with the Raiders.
  • SF Defensive Coordinator
    Sorensen is a former player turned coach. He entered the league as a rookie UDFA in 2001 with the Dolphins and bounced around multiple teams until opting to hang it up after the 2010 season. Sorenson joined the coaching ranks in 2013 as the Seahawks’ assistant special teams coach, and later served as their assistant defensive backs coach and secondary coach before joining the Jaguars in 2021 as their special teams coordinator. He was hired as the 49ers’ defensive assistant the following season and spent 2023 as the teams defensive passing game coordinator. One of just a handful of coaches who interviewed for the defensive coordinator vacancy, Sorenson is a familiar face who should have an easy time adjusting to the role. It is his first time serving as a defensive coordinator at any level.
  • SF Coaching Staff
    Staley had previously interviewed for the 49ers defensive coordinator vacancy, but that job instead went to defensive passing game coordinator Nick Sorensen. Instead, the former Chargers head coach will work closely with Kyle Shanahan as the assistant head coach, role that Anthony Lynn held for the last two seasons. While his time as a head coach was largely underwhelming, Staley brings three years of head coaching experience to the table, and can also assist on the defensive side of the ball, having spent time as both a linebackers coach and defensive coordinator from 2017 through 2020.
  • TB Wide Receiver #13
    According to Russini, the Buccaneers and Evans “are in discussions,” but the veteran receiver “wants to explore his options.” Evans would like to hear from all interested teams before making a decision on where to play, which means his time with the Buccaneers could be coming to an end. Evans played in all 17 games for the Buccaneers last season, totaling 79 receptions for 1,255 yards and 13 touchdowns. Evans has surpassed 1,000 yards in each of his first 10 seasons and will be 31 at the start of next year. His fantasy stock could see a tremendous boost if he were to team up with one of the league’s top quarterbacks this offseason.
  • GB Running Back #28
    Dillon is set to be a free agent this month and will likely be playing elsewhere in 2024. The former second-round pick drastically underperformed expectations in a contract year that saw Aaron Jones miss six games due to injury. Dillon rushed for 613 yards on 178 carries while averaging a career-low 3.4 YPC. Dillon never rushed for more than 76 yards in a game last season and eclipsed 50 yards in just six of 15 games. Profiled as a high-end bruiser back out of Boston College, Dillon has averaged just 2.80 YCO/ATT over the last two seasons while forcing a missed tackle on just 12.1 percent of his rush attempts. Dillon will be 26 at the start of next season and could land a high-profile RB2 role on the right team, but isn’t expected to garner much interest as a lead back.
  • FA Tight End #82
    Just hours after the Commanders cut ties with left tackle Charles Leno, Logan Thomas became the latest Commander to get let go. Thomas caught 55 passes for 496 yards and four touchdowns over 16 games and posted a line of 184-1685-14 in four seasons with the team. His 2020 breakout (72-670-6) came in his first season as a full-time starter, as the former quarterback turned tight end enjoyed a bit of a career renaissance after switching positions. A torn ACL limited to Thomas to just six games in 2021, but he’s played in 30 of a possible 34 regular season games since 2022. Thomas will be 33 at the start of next season and could still offer value as roster depth. His release will save the Commanders $6.5 million against the cap.
  • NYG Tight End #12
    Waller, 31, “expressed to individuals in the Giants organization that he was contemplating retirement” after another injury-marred season in which he managed just one touchdown on 52 catches over 11 games. Waller has since committed to returning to the Giants in 2024. He’ll make $10.5 million in base salary and count as a $14 million salary cap hit for the team. The big-framed Waller — constantly battling hamstring injuries — is at best a red zone weapon after slowing down in recent seasons.
