  • LV Wide Receiver #17
    Adams’ agents described him being traded as “baseless” and pure speculation. Many media outlets have suggested that Adams could be on the move to the Jets, once again play with Aaron Rodgers. For now it seems like no more than a pipe dream for fantasy managers as well, Adams will be catching passes from Gardner Minshew or Aiden O’Connell for the foreseeable future.
  • CHI Quarterback #18
    The number one overall pick can now report to camp with the rest of his rookie teammates. Williams’ deal includes a $25.5 million signing bonus along with the team’s fifth-year option. Rome Odunze signed just hours before and now both of the Bears’ top rookies are on the books. Williams was named the starter soon after he was drafted by the Bears in late April.
  • CHI Wide Receiver #15
    Odunze’s contract will be fully guaranteed with a $13.3 million signing bonus. As a first-round selection, the team will also have a fifth-year option on him. This comes right on time as it happens on the same day the Bears’ rookies are to report to training camp.
  • SF Wide Receiver #11
    Aiyuk and the 49ers haven’t been able to reach a deal so this comes as no surprise. Despite the two sides coming together recently in efforts to work something out, no deal could be reached so Aiyuk has “respectfully” asked to be moved. Coming off an All-Pro season, Aiyuk is looking to cash in as one of the highest paid receivers in the NFL. Things could get sticky as he’s still under contract for 2024. Nonetheless, Aiyuk has certainly made a name for himself in the league.
  • NE Wide Receiver #80
    Boutte was arrested in January after reportedly placing thousands of bets while underage by using a fake account. Some of those bets were on LSU games while he was playing at the school. Despite the charges being dropped, his future in the league remains unclear. Patriots head coach Jerod Mayo previously said the team will “wait to hear from the league going forward,” in regards to Boutte. He has been practicing with the team this offseason and is looking to rebound from a quiet rookie campaign. Boutte caught two passes for 19 yards and appeared in just five games last year.
    The report comes from NBC Houston’s Aaron Wilson. Fisher spent the 2023 and 2024 UFL seasons playing defensive line for the D.C. Defenders, initially rushing the passer as a defensive tackle before moving to the edge the following year. He played well in both roles, producing a 10.8 percent pass-rush win rate in 2023, third among 39 UFL interior defenders with at least 150 pass-rushing snaps, and tied for second in sacks (seven) in 2024, ranked among 25 edge rushers with at least 150 pass-rush snaps.
  • SEA Wide Receiver #11
    Smith-Njigba went on to note Grubb’s frequent use of motion and “putting us in the right position to make plays.” The young receiver famously suffered through a shallow, 6.4-yard average depth of target (aDOT) in former OC Shane Waldron’s offense last year. Smith-Njigba’s praise suggests he will be used in a more diverse role under Grubb, which bodes positively for his fantasy outlook. Grubb’s 2023 Washington offense produced a 19.5 percent explosive pass play rate (15-plus yards) when using motion, seventh-best among Power Five offenses.
  • CLE Kicker #7
    The deal comes after Hopkins’ career-best 91.7 percent field goal conversion rate in 2023. He was extremely accurate from afar, converting eight-of-eight field goal attempts from 50-plus yards. Among 33 NFL kickers to attempt at least 10 total field goals, Hopkins is one of just three such players to produce a 100.0 percent conversion rate at that distance.
  • CLE Kicker #7
    The $5.3 million annual value places Hopkins amongst the top-five highest paid kickers in the league and ties him to the Browns through the 2027 season. The 10-year veteran made 33-of-36 field goal attempts in 2023, marking the third consecutive season with a conversion rate higher than 90 percent. Last season was also the first time in four years that Hopkins attempted more than 20 field goals after battling various injuries in his last year with the Commanders and two years with the Chargers. The extension also indicates a commitment from the Browns after the franchise brought in Lucas Havrisik earlier in the offseason.
  • BAL Running Back #34
    The move was expected following Mitchell’s likely ACL-plus injury in Week 15. Should he remain on the PUP list through training camp, he will be eligible for the regular season’s active PUP list, where he must remain for at least four games. Whether Mitchell returns to his rookie-season form remains to be seen. He produced explosive 10-plus-yard rushing gains on 25.5 percent of his rushing attempts last year, ranking No. 1 among NFL running backs with at least 45 attempts.
