  • CHI Quarterback #1
    Fields spoke to Equanimeous St. Brown and Amon-Ra St. Brown on their podcast about his desires for the 2024 season. He said, “I ain’t got no control over it, so whatever happens happens”, adding “I just want it to be over.” The Bears hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, leading to much speculation on the team’s future at quarterback. Fields looks to be in a wait-and-see period, expressing his desire to stay with the Bears, but recognizing the business of the league and that he may not be in Chicago next season. The NFL Combine is coming up at the end of February, which may fuel more speculation on whether Caleb Williams is looking like a Bear or not. Regardless, Fields will have to wait to see what his future looks like.
  • MIA Defensive Tackle #94
    He said on ESPN NFL Live, “If that means franchising him, that’s likely what they’ll do.” As Graziano noted, Miami needs to clear over $50 million in cap space this offseason. Tagging Wilkins would add roughly $21 million to their books for the upcoming season. That makes keeping Wilkins in town tricky, but far from impossible. A long-term deal could keep his cap hit for 2024 in check while still getting him plenty of money in the coming years. Wilkins totaled nine sacks and 10 TFLs in 2023.
  • FA Center #55
    Allen has been in the NFL for six seasons but has only started double-digit games in a year once. That was in 2021. He missed 10 games in 2022 and was demoted to a backup role this past season. Coleman Shelton handled the starting duties for LA. If healthy, Allen could still be a starting center for an NFL team, but it’s hard to bet on him being available for a full season. The move clears roughly $4.9 million in cap space.
  • NO Running Back #41
    Kubiak, a Kyle Shanahan disciple, is expected to install a similar rushing attach in New Orleans next season — one replete with outside zone runs and plenty of pre-snap motion on rushing plays. The Saints rarely used motion on runs in 2023 even though they had success when they did. Underhill said if Kubiak’s system “can get Kamara just a little bit more space, his overall rushing average should increase, which would then take some pressure off” Derek Carr. “There is a lot that can be done to improve the offense. Boosting the efficiency of this run scheme will go a long way.” Kamara, entering his age-29 season, fell off in nearly every metric last year. He posted the lowest rush yards after contact per attempt (2.51) and the fewest rushes of at least ten yards of his NFL career. Perhaps Kubiak can salvage one more productive season for the veteran back.
  • 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.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #4
    Flowers was investigated in early February for involvement in an alleged domestic assault. According to The Baltimore Banner, the investigation also included a police department from Acton, Massachusetts. A police report now says the Baltimore County police suspended investigation into Flowers without charges, according to Hensley.
  • 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.
  • FA Wide Receiver #18
    Slater, a special teams ace throughout the Belichick-Brady dynasty, announced his retirement in a lengthy statement posted to X, formerly Twitter. Among the most respected people in the NFL, Slater, 38, was a do-it-all player for New England, blocking field goals and punts, serving as a special teams gunner, and generally doing the dirty work that undergirded the team’s unprecedented success in the 2000s and 2010s. “Matthew Slater deserves every accolade someone could receive,” former Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said in a statement. “He is a once in a lifetime person, and the best core special teams player in NFL history.” Slater retires as a ten-time Pro Bowler and a three-time Super Bowl champion.
