C.J. Anderson - RB - Los Angeles Rams
Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Rams) said on his Twitter feed that his time with the Los Angeles Rams 'was fun' and that he enjoyed the opportunity.
Huddle Up: Anderson was speaking like a player who doesn't expect to be back with the Rams in 2019. However, he did show that he has a little gas left in the tank in the right offense, and depending on where he signs, he could have some appeal as a depth option for fantasy owners.
Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and the team is closing in on a contract extension that would pay him $20 million a year over a four- or five-year deal, according to a source. Jones also would receive $50-60 million in new guarantees.
Huddle Up: Jones just turned 30 and is eyeing one last mega-deal for his career after leading the league with 1,677 receiving yards last season. He's been a top-10 fantasy wideout in each of the last five seasons, and there's no reason to expect anything less over the next few seasons.
Malcolm Brown - RB - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Malcolm Brown's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet by the Detroit Lions was matched by the Rams Friday, March 22. He'll receive a $100,000 signing bonus and $1 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Brown will be an option late in drafts to handcuff to Todd Gurley, but he could also carve a niche in the offense to keep Gurley fresh early in the season.
O.J. Howard - TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) spent time running routes and catching passes from Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Thursday, March 21.
Huddle Up: Howard was having a TE1 campaign in 2018 before an injury ended his season early, but he should be back at full strength well before the start of next season. He is a big-play weapon from the tight end spot and could finish as a top-five fantasy option at his position.
Jordan Howard - RB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is unlikely to have a role in the offense if he remains with the team in 2019, in the opinion of Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
Huddle Up: Howard has always struggled to make an impact in the passing game, and after regressing as a between-the-tackles runner last year, the Bears don't have much incentive to feature him in the offense. Feel free to take a flier on him in the final rounds of drafts, but don't count on him to be a contributor for your fantasy squad.
Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) has been working out with teammates this offseason, according to RB Adrian Peterson.
Huddle Up: Reed managed to play in 13 games last season, but it didn't translate into much production on the field. Between constant health issues and slipping per-game numbers, Reed is no more than a late-round lottery ticket heading into 2019.
Hunter Henry - TE - Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs, according to general manager Tom Telesco.
Huddle Up: Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Henry should open the year as the starting tight end for the Chargers and a low-end TE1 candidate for fantasy owners.
Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said his recovery is where it is 'supposed to be' at this point in the process.
Huddle Up: Kupp is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019 season. He was Jared Goff's go-to target on third downs and in the red zone prior to the injury, and Kupp should be able to deliver WR2 numbers, especially in PPR formats.
Stephen Gostkowski - PK - New England Patriots
Free-agent PK Stephen Gostkowski (Patriots) is making progress in contract talks with the New England Patriots. Gostkowski has also received interest from other teams.
Huddle Up: Gostkowski struggled at times this past season but still can be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Jared Cook - TE - Oakland Raiders
Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Raiders) is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints Thursday, March 21.
Huddle Up: Cook had a big year last year, and he could be in line for a bigger one in the Saints' offense. He'll be a low-end TE1 in fantasy with the Saints.
