Darrelle Revis cut by Chiefs
Revis, who will turn 33 in July, was released by Kansas City on Thursday. With the impending acquisition of Kendall Fuller from the Redskins, plus, the fact that Revis' base salary of $1.015 million would become fully guaranteed on March 18, the writing was on the wall for the aging cornerback's release at some point this offseason. This could be the end of the line for Revis.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Insider Adam Caplan is reporting the Kansas City Chiefs have released CB Darrelle Revis.

J Garoppolo (SFO)

Jimmy Garoppolo signs 5-year contract with 49ers
Garoppolo got his prove-it moment in the final five games of the 2017 regular season and the end result is a hefty pay day for the 26-year-old. The team is clearly all-in on him and it won't be a surprise if they bring in additional playmakers this offseason to further bolster an offense that is on the rise.

Fantasy Spin:
Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers have agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million contract. This is the biggest deal in NFL history on an average-per-year basis.

B Roethlisberger (PIT)

Ben Roethlisberger to play beyond contract?
Bouchette wrote that Steelers owner Art Rooney told reporters that Roethlisberger "wants" to continue his playing career beyond his current contract - he has two years remaining in the deal - and could try to hammer out an extension in the future following the 2018 season. And while this news could put any retirement rumors on hold for a while, nothing would be set in stone - Roethlisberger has contemplated retirement in each of the past few seasons. The Steelers should really be focusing on the Le'Veon Bell situation as their top offseason priority.

Fantasy Spin:
Pittsburgh Steelers beat writer Ed Bouchette is reporting QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to extend his career beyond his current contract.

Nick Fairley released with a non-football illness designation
This may be the end of a great career. His IDP owners are free to drop him.

Fantasy Spin:
Fairly was discovered to have a heart condition that prevented him from playing after signing a four-year, $28 million contract before last season.

T Smith (PHI)

Torrey Smith contributes in Super Bowl win
Smith wasn't the star of the game by any means, but he had several critical catches. He increased his performance significantly in the playoffs, with 13 catches on 21 targets in the three games. He is under contract for next season with the Eagles and, assuming he remains with the team, should be considered a low-end fantasy option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Spin:
Torrey Smith caught five of nine targets for 49 yards in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
09:54 PM
N Foles (PHI)

Nick Foles wins Super Bowl MVP
Foles was simply outstanding in the game, and even his interception, which Alshon Jeffery tipped high into the air, was not his fault. Absent a trade, he should remain with the Eagles next season as the backup quarterback. But expect the Eagles to receive plenty of trade offers in the offseason, which could lead to a starting job for Foles next year. If he does get traded and lands in the right spot, he should make a fine fantasy option.

Fantasy Spin:
Nick Foles completed 28 of 43 pass attempts for 373 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII. He also caught a touchdown pass and was named MVP.
09:49 PM
Z Ertz (PHI)

Zach Ertz with critical touchdown catch in Super Bowl LII
Ertz put the exclamation point on an outstanding season with an 11-yard touchdown grab that (after a lengthy review) proved to be the game-winning catch in the Super Bowl. Ertz caps off a tremendous season that saw him finish as one of the few truly elite tight ends in fantasy football. With the core of the Eagles team intact next season, expect another excellent year from the tight end.

Fantasy Spin:
Zach Ertz caught seven of nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
09:41 PM
N Agholor (PHI)

Nelson Agholor contributes in Super Bowl win
Continuing his recent trend, Agholor was incredibly efficient with his targets on Sunday, and caught 15 of his 18 targets total in the playoffs. As a whole, Agholor established himself as a fantasy-relevant receiver this season, and, as he's under contract with the Eagles for two more seasons, should continue to be so in the near future.

Fantasy Spin:
Nelson Agholor caught nine of 11 targets for 84 yards and added one rushing attempt for nine yards in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
09:38 PM
A Jeffery (PHI)

Alshon Jeffery scores a touchdown in Super Bowl
Jeffery made his touchdown catch (a 34-yarder) late in the first quarter, and looked primed for a huge game. But Stephon Gilmore shadowed Jeffery for most of the game after that point, and he was shut out in the second half. Still, Jeffery had a fine first season in Philadelphia and scored three touchdowns in the playoffs. He should only improve next season with another year in the Eagles offense.

Fantasy Spin:
Alshon Jeffery caught three of his eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
09:26 PM
C Clement (PHI)

Corey Clement with a huge game in Super Bowl LII
Clement had two enormous plays - a 55-yard catch-and-run and a 22-yard touchdown catch to give the Eagles a 29-19 lead in the third quarter. Though he got sporadic work throughout the season, Clement proved himself to be an explosive playmaker. With LeGarrette Blount a free agent, Clement's role should only grow in 2018.

Fantasy Spin:
Corey Clement rushed three times for eight yards and caught four passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
09:20 PM
L Blount (PHI)

LeGarrette Blount scores a touchdown in Super Bowl
Blount was outstanding in the game, and his 21-yard touchdown run gave the Eagles a 12-point lead in the second quarter. Blount will be an unrestricted free agent next year, and it's unclear whether he will return to the Eagles. But he showed enough this season that he should likely catch on somewhere, and at least find a role as a goal-line back.

Fantasy Spin:
LeGarrette Blount rushed 14 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
09:15 PM
J Ajayi (PHI)

Jay Ajayi totals 57 yards in Super Bowl
Ajayi looked to be battling through his ankle injury in the game, as his nine touches were the fewest he had totaled in any of his previous six games. Although he had the least productive game of the Eagles' three running backs, he clearly ran hard and was effective when he did play. Under contract for another season, Ajayi should be the primary ball carrier for the Eagles next year, though he'll still likely be splitting carries with at least one other back.

Fantasy Spin:
Jay Ajay rushed nine times for 57 yards in the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
08:48 PM
R Burkhead (NEP)

Rex Burkhead has a big catch and run in Super Bowl 52
Burkhead finally looked healthy once again. He played behind James White in this one, but certainly stole some reps from Dion Lewis. The Patriots will likely try and bring him back in free agency this spring.

Fantasy Spin:
Rex Burkhead ran three times for 18 yards and caught one pass for 46 yards as the New England Patriots fell to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52.
08:46 PM
J White (NEP)

James White scores another Super Bowl touchdown
White got a lot more run than Dion Lewis in this one. However, that was game plan specific and likely not a sign of things to come in New England. White is under team control through 2020 and will once again be a PPR flex option in fantasy drafts next season.

Fantasy Spin:
James White rushed seven times for 45 yards and a touchdown in New England's Super Bowl loss last night, adding two receptions for another 21 yards.
08:43 PM
D Lewis (NEP)

Dion Lewis rushes for 39 yards in Super Bowl
Lewis was phased out of the game plan with New England deploying a pass happy attack. A healthy Rex Burkhead also stole some looks from Lewis. Now a free agent 27 years old, there's no guarantee the Patriots retain him. It is important to remember, however, how well he played down the stretch in the regular season.

Fantasy Spin:
Dion Lewis ran nine times for 39 yards in the Patriots' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52.
