Tampa Bay To Release DT Gerald McCoy

According to beat writer Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs iinformed Gerald McCoy that they are releasing him. 



Fantasy Spin:

The Bucs had been looking for a trade partner for McCoy but when that didn't materialize they decided to let him go. He would've cost them over $13 M for the season, but since they dropped him so late he will cost them nothing in dead money for the season.

Redskins' LB Reuben Foster Tears ACL

We reported earlier that Washington LB Reuben Foster was carted off the field today. Now it has been confirmed that he tore the ACL in his left knee and will miss the entire season.



Fantasy Spin:

Between his off field issues and now the ACL tear, it has been very tough for this once strong prospect to make a name for himself.

E Elliott (DAL)

Zeke Elliott Handcuffed at Weekend Music Festival

TMZ is reporting that Xeke Elliott was handcuffed by event security after arguing with his girlfriend and then possibly shoving a security person. 



Fantasy Spin:

No charges were filled and he was not arrested, but you know the NFL will be looking hard at this. He was already suspended for six games in 2017 for earlier domestic violence issues. He could be looking at a longer suspension if the NFL decides he stepped over the line.

Redskins' LB Reuben Foster Carted Off Field

During the second play of today's OTA practice Washington LB Reuben Foster went down holding his left knee. They immediately placed him in an aircast and carted him off the field.



Fantasy Spin:

This has the look of a serious injury, but there are no confirmations yet. Weshould know more at some point later today or tomorrow morning at the latest.

Colts Sign QB Chad Kelly

The Indianapolis Colts have signed former Bronco QB Chad Kelly.



Fantasy Spin:

Kelly had a very solid preseason for Denver last year, but has had multiple off-field incidents that led to Denver dropping him. He was at the rookie camp for the Colts and obviously showed well. If he continues to impress he has a chance to make the 53-man roster.

The Texans Have Released TE Ryan Griffin

The Houston Texans have released TE Ryan Griffin after he was recently charged with public drunkeness and vandalism after punching through a window.



Fantasy Spin:

Griffin did start 11 games for Houston last year, but this incident was supposedly brought on when the Texans drafted TE Kahale Warring in the 3rd round of the draft. Most expected Warring to take the job anyway, now it should be much simpler and he should definitely be on your radar for Fantasy.

Baltimore Signs WR Michael Floyd

The Baltimore Ravens signed former Redskins' receiver Michael Floyd. 



Fantasy Spin:

Floyd has been all around the league and is should not be on your Fantasy radar. The funny part here is that Baltimore keeps bringing in wide receivers to go with a QB who would rather run then throw.

CB Patrick Peterson Suspended 6 Games

Adam Schefter is reporting that Arizona Cardinal CB Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy. 



Fantasy Spin:

This is a big blow to a decent defense and probably a big reason why the Cardinals used the first pick of the second round draft Byron Murphy. Murphy should get a lot of playing time early and may have some value in leagues that seperate safety and cornerback.

D Lee (KCC)

Chiefs Acquire LB Darren Lee From The Jets

The Chiefs have traded a 2020 6th-round pick to the Jets for linebacker Darron Lee. 



Fantasy Spin:

Lee was a 1st-round draft pick in 2016, but has been considered a bust so far. The good news is that he is only 25 and joins the Chiefs as they try to improve a defense that was 31st in the league last year. He doesn't have any IDP value right now, but he should definitely be on your radar.

Patriots Sign LB Jamie Collins

The Patriots have signed LB Jamie Collins, who was with the team previously before they traded him to Cleveland because he demanded more money.



Fantasy Spin:

Collins played his best ball when he was with the Patriots and obviously knows the system. After a down year in 2018 in Cleveland, he could bounce back and become a viable IDP option. 

11:44 AM

Jets Fire GM Mike Maccagnan

The Jets have informed GM Mike Maccagnan that he is being releived of his duties. Head Coach Adam Gase has been named the interim GM.



Fantasy Spin:

This makes so much sense since Gase did such great things in Miami. Not. It will be interesting to see how long it takes them to hire a new one.

Seahawks Sign QB Geno Smith

According to Jordan Raanan of ESPN the Seahawks have signed former Chargers' backup QB Geno Smith. 



Fantasy Spin:

Smith won't have any Fantasy value unless Russell Wilson misses games due to injury and even then he will have to beat out Paxton Lynch.

M Walton (MIA)

Former Bengals' RB Mark Walton Signs with Miami

The Dolphins have signed former Bengals' RB Mark Walton. Cincinnati dropped Walton after he was arrested for the third time this offseason.



Fantasy Spin:

Walton was a 4th round pick in 2018 and there is definitely a need for running back depth on the Dolphins, but we have to wait to see if the NFL suspends him. Let's wait and see what he does in camp, but he could become a sneaky late picks in deep drafts or for dynasty.

Eagles Sign QB Cody Kessler

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com the Eagles will sign former Jacksonville QB Cody Kessler on Monday. 



Fantasy Spin:

Normally backup QBs signings don't have a lot of Fantasy value, but when you are backing up Carson Wentz anything is possible. He wil have to beat out Nate Sudfield and 5th-round pick Clayton Thorson to be the #2, but he does have the most actual NFL game experience.

Patriots Sign WR Dontrelle Inman

The Patriots have signed former Colts WR Dontrelle Inman to a 1-year deal. 



Fantasy Spin:

The Patriots doing what they usually do: Bring in multiple players to fill a hole and see which one shales out. The team has already signed Demaryius Thomas and drafted N'Keal Harry. It is hard to see Inman having any real Fantasy value unless he truly stands out. We are not betting on it.
