J Jones (ATL)

Julio Jones expected to be ready for training camp
Two weeks removed from minor foot surgery, Jones told the media his foot is "good" and that he is focusing on his "recovery" moving forward during an appearance at the Georgia state capitol Wednesday. Although he will likely be sidelined through OTAs, the elite wideout is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in late-July. Barring a setback, Jones is a top five receiver entering the 2017 fantasy football campaign.

Q Patton (SFO)

Quinton Patton signs with Jets
After spending the first four years of his career with San Francisco, Patton signed with the Jets Thursday. The 26-year-old wideout played in 14 games last season and accumulated career-high production in receptions (37), yards receiving (408) and YPG (29.1), but failed to score a touchdown. Patton will likely enter next season as New York's No. 4 or No. 5 receiver and will have minimal fantasy value if any in 2017.

Fantasy Spin:
The New York Jets have signed free agent wide receiver Quinton Patton on Thursday.

B Oliver (SDC)

Branden Oliver re-signs with Chargers
Oliver, who did not play in 2016 due to a torn Achilles suffered in the preseason, was re-signed by Los Angeles Thursday. Oliver could enter 2017 as Melvin Gordon's primary backup if he can beat out Kenneth Farrow, Andre Williams and Kenjon Barner for the job this offseason.

Fantasy Spin:
The Los Angeles Chargers have re-signed running back Branden Oliver on Thursday.

L Murray (OAK)

Latavius Murray undergoes surgery
Caplan adds that the Vikings, as well as other teams who had an interest in signing Murray, were made aware of the surgery prior to agreeing to terms. Since he underwent the procedure this late, he'll likely be sidelined through OTAs. However, he is "expected" to be ready for the start of training camp in July, per reports.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Adam Caplan is reporting Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray (ankle) underwent successful offseason ankle surgery.

C Michael (GBP)

Christine Michael re-signs with Green Bay
Michael, who appeared in 15 games last season with the Seahawks and Packers, re-signed with Green Bay Wednesday. The veteran rusher accumulated a career-high 583 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground while catching 22 targets for 122 yards and another score as a receiver in 2016. However, the bulk of his production came in the first half of the year while he was still a member of the Seahawks. Due to his unknown role in the backfield next season, Michael's 2017 fantasy value is a question mark.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Green Bay Packers have re-signed free agent running back Christine Michael on Wednesday.

M Rivera (OAK)

Mychal Rivera signs with Jaguars
Rivera, who spent the first four years of his career in Oakland, signed with the Jaguars Wednesday. After showing promise in 2014 with a 58-534-4 stat line, Rivera's production has significantly regressed in each year since then. He finished with only 18 receptions for 192 yards and a touchdown in 13 games last season. Since Jacksonville traded Julius Thomas to the Dolphins earlier in the offseason, the Jaguars have an opening at tight end, which Rivera could fill to open 2017.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting former Oakland Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera and the Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal.

C Hackenberg (NYJ)

Christian Hackenberg could finally see playing time in 2017
The Jets are expected to start McCown in the season opener. However, he will turn 38-years-old by the time training camp begins and is clearly not the long-term answer at quarterback for a rebuilding football team. With Bryce Petty and Hackenberg waiting in the wings, the Jets will likely want to see what they have for the future. Petty garnered playing time last season but did not impress as the team went ahead and signed McCown. But Hackenberg failed to take a snap in 2016 and is the unknown commodity of the trio. Once the Jets are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, and let's face it, barring a magical run, they will be out of it early on in the second half of the year, expect Hackenberg to finally make his first career start.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Rich Cimini believes newly acquired quarterback Josh McCown will enter 2017 as the New York Jets' Week 1 starter "by default." However, the beat reporter also believes Christian Hackenberg "will take over sooner than later" during the course of the campaign.

B Cunningham (RAM)

Benny Cunningham signs with Bears
Cunningham, a career backup with the Rams, signed with the Bears Tuesday. With Jordan Howard, Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey all under contract, Cunningham is unlikely to enter 2017 with any fantasy relevancy.

Fantasy Spin:
The Chicago Bears have signed free agent running back Benny Cunningham on Tuesday.

K Allen (SDC)

Keenan Allen expected to be ready for training camp
Allen, who tore is ACL in Week 1 of the 2016 season, is not expected to be available for OTAs in the spring. However, per reports, the injury-prone wideout should be ready for the start of training camp that begins in late-July. Despite missing 26 games in his four-year career, Allen is still considered a top receiver when he is on the field and healthy. Barring a setback, Allen should enter 2017 in the low-end WR1 conversation for fantasy football purposes.

Fantasy Spin:
Pro Football Talk is reporting Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
09:13 PM
K Alonso (MIA)

Kiko Alonso signs contract extension with Dolphins
Alonso led the Dolphins in tackles last season amassing 115 tackles. He also recovered four fumbles and made two interceptions. Alonso started off slowly, but became a solid and consistent IDP weekly start at middle linebacker - the fantasy sweet spot for defense. Watch what happens in camp. The signing of Lawrence Timmons may likely move Alonso to the outside, which will commit him to pass coverage at times, and could affect his tackle numbers.

Fantasy Spin:
Kiko Alonso and the Dolphins have agreed to a four-year deal worth $28.8 million, which guarantees him $18.5 million over the next two seasons.
09:05 PM
M Te'o (SDC)

Manti Te'o signs with New Orleans
Te'o played his entire four-year career with the Chargers before signing with New Orleans Tuesday. The former Notre Dame standout only played in three games last season due to a torn Achilles and is still recovering from the injury. Although he could miss spring workouts with his new club, he should be ready for the start of training camp in July, per reports.

Fantasy Spin:
The New Orleans Saints and free agent linebacker Manti Te'o agreed to terms on a two-year deal Tuesday.

C Newton (CAR)

Cam Newton to undergo offseason surgery
It appears Newton suffered a partially torn rotator cuff during Week 14 of the 2016 season and will undergo surgery on March 30 to repair the injury. Per reports, Newton will not throw with the team until 16 weeks following the procedure and could still be ready for the start of training camp at the end of July.

S Draughn (SFO)

Shaun Draughn signs with Giants
Draughn, who played the last two seasons in San Francisco, signed with the Giants Tuesday. Playing in all 16 games in 2016, he accumulated 196 yards and four touchdowns as a rusher while catching 29 targets for 263 yards and another two scores as a receiver. With Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen already expected to enter 2017 as New York's top two backs on the depth chart, Draughn will likely open the year at the No. 3 spot ahead of Orleans Darkwa.

Fantasy Spin:
The New York Giants and free agent running back Shaun Draughn agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal Tuesday.

K Aiken (BAL)

Kamar Aiken expected to sign with Indianapolis
Formerly of the Ravens, Aiken is expected to sign with the Colts Tuesday. After showing promise with a 75-944-5 stat line in 2015, the veteran wideout was buried on Baltimore's depth chart behind Steve Smith, Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman for most of the 2016 campaign. While playing in all 16 games, he only accumulated 29 receptions for 328 yards and a touchdown, a tremendous drop-off from the year before. Aiken could enter 2017 as Indianapolis' No. 3 receiver if he can beat out Philip Dorsett, who currently owns the role, with a strong offseason.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Indianapolis Colts are expected to sign free agent wide receiver Kamar Aiken.

Barner accumulated 129 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns in 13 games last season with the Eagles. The Chargers likely signed him for depth after losing Danny Woodhead in free agency to the Ravens.

Fantasy Spin:
The Los Angeles Chargers have signed former Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenjon Barner on Monday.
