Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will file a grievance if the Redskins decide to place the franchise tag on him, according to a source. Cousins can argue that the Redskins would be violating the collective bargaining agreement because the team would have no intention in having long-term contract talks with him or having him play on the franchise tag.
Huddle Up: Cousins likely will be playing with another team next season, but it is not known if he will hit the free-agent market or if the Redskins will look to trade him. Cousins has played well over the last few seasons and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his new team.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE - New York Jets
New York Jets impending free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins recently received a two-year, $8 million offer from the Jets but rejected the offer because it was short on guarantees and total value.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins had a solid first half of the 2017 season but was quiet in the last few months. Seferian-Jenkins could still return to the Jets and probably would be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he re-signs.
A.J. McCarron - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron is expected to receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings if the Vikings are not able to re-sign impending free-agent QB Case Keenum.
Huddle Up: Several teams will be looking for starting quarterbacks this offseason, so McCarron should have several options available. He has seen limited playing time since entering the league and probably would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is a starter.
Terrelle Pryor - WR - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor likely will receive interest from the Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.
Huddle Up: Pryor had a disappointing 2017 season when he finished with 240 yards and one touchdown. He should receive interest from several teams in free agency but likely would be a starter if he returns to the Browns. He can be a late-round pick in most drafts next season.
Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman would have trade value, according to a high-ranking AFC evaluator. 'Great complement to a starter and he could fill the role as a starting running back,' the evaluator said. 'Great speed and athleticism.'
Huddle Up: Coleman still has a year remaining on his current deal, so he is likely slated for another year of backing up Devonta Freeman. Even in that role, Coleman has potential as a flex play because of his ability to find the end zone.
C.J. Anderson - RB - Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, and Legwold believes RB C.J. Anderson may not be back with the team.
Huddle Up: Booker has flashed some potential with limited touches, and his fantasy value would receive a big boost if Anderson ends up elsewhere next season.
Rob Gronkowski - TE - New England Patriots
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had been thinking about retirement 'long before' the loss in Super Bowl LII, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: This is potentially bad news for anyone hoping Gronkowski was just having an emotional response to the Super Bowl loss. His future remains up in the air at this point, but he would remain the top fantasy tight end if he does play in 2018. The uncertainty could make him a buy-low candidate in dynasty leagues.
Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is scheduled to receive a $6 million roster bonus March 16.
Huddle Up: Brown is one of the top receivers in the NFL and will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues in 2018.
Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is scheduled to receive a $5 million roster bonus March 16.
Huddle Up: Roethlisberger is coming off a solid 2017 season and has said he plans to play next season. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterbacks in most fantasy leagues.
Laquon Treadwell - WR - Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell could be shopped this offseason for a draft pick, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Treadwell has been a bust in Minnesota, and a change of scenery could be best for both him and the Vikings at this point. Treadwell value is limited to dynasty leagues for now.
Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' contract extension will likely be a priority this offseason, according to Pete Dougherty of USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin, and Dougherty believes Rodgers will sign a record-setting deal.
Huddle Up: Rodgers still has a couple of years remaining on his current deal, but it's no surprise that the Packers would want to lock up their franchise quarterback. He'll be the top quarterback on the draft board in 2018.
Michael Crabtree - WR - Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said one of his goals this year is to 'get the best' out of WR Michael Crabtree.
Huddle Up: Crabtree's numbers slipped a bit last year, but he still managed at least eight touchdowns for the third year in a row. He should be a solid bench option with WR3 potential in 2018.
Torrey Smith - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith is unlikely to return to the team next season, according to Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic.
Huddle Up: Smith was an afterthought in the Philadelphia passing game, and it's hard to imagine a scenario where he will have much fantasy value in 2018.
Nelson Agholor - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor will likely receive a long-term extension that averages around $9-10 million per year, according to Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic.
Huddle Up: Agholor was able to shed his bust label, emerging as one of Philadelphia's top weapons in the passing game. His arrow is suddenly pointing way up, and he'll be a WR3 candidate heading into 2018.
Quincy Enunwa - WR - New York Jets
New York Jets restricted free-agent WR Quincy Enunwa likely will receive a second-round tender offer this offseason.
Huddle Up: Enunwa was not able to play this season because of a neck injury but should be ready for the 2018 season. He posted 857 yards and four touchdowns in 2016 and likely will be a top-three receiver for the Jets next season. He could be a late-round pick in fantasy leagues as a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.
Amari Cooper - WR - Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper battled an assortment of injuries all season, quarterback Derek Carr told Sirius XM Radio on Friday, Feb. 16. 'He would never say it to you, but I'll say it to you to have his back. That man was out there giving anything he could and, honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had,' Carr said.
Huddle Up: This should not come as a surprise, as he began the season with a leg/knee injury before dealing with an ankle issue and concussion late. Cooper played so far below the standard he set in his first two seasons that injuries almost had to play a major role in his disappointing season. Especially with Jon Gruden calling the shots on offense now, Cooper is a prime rebound candidate in 2018.
Drew Brees - QB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees would become an unrestricted free agent March 14 if he doesn't reach a new deal. The final three contract years would void at the start of the new league year, and the Saints will have to pay $18 million worth of signing bonus prorated on this year's salary cap in addition to whatever salary they end up paying Brees for 2018.
Huddle Up: Brees' touchdowns took a big hit from 37 to 23 due to the running-game surge. He also threw for almost 1,000 fewer yards. You can expect those numbers to improve a little bit, and he falls right on the edge of that upper-tier fantasy quarterback.
Jimmy Garoppolo - QB - San Francisco 49ers
Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's deal will pay him $35 million in a signing bonus and roster bonus before the season. He can create $7.5 million in injury guarantees if he makes the AP All-NFL team in any year or he plays 50 percent of the snaps in the regular season, the 49ers make the NFC Championship game and he plays in 50 percent of the playoff snaps. Essentially, Garoppolo is signed for two years and $61 million and potentially three years and $86 million. The final two years could be a wash.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo looked great late last season, but he still needs weapons around him. He'll be a low-end QB1 with upside to move into the midrange area.
Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota became the fifth quarterback in NFL history with at least 9,000 passing yards (9,476) and 900 rushing yards (913) in his first three seasons after his performance during the 2017 campaign.
Huddle Up: While 2017 was far from his best season, it should be noted that the former Heisman Trophy winner played through a mire of injuries, not to mention he was coming back from a fractured fibula at the end of 2016. The good news is he should be 100 percent healthy going into next year, and thus, he'll be a top bounce-back candidate with legit QB1 potential for all formats.
Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck said he is excited about the offense head coach Frank Reich is bringing to the team. 'That sounds great,' Luck said. 'I know all the best offenses that I've been a part of in my career we've not been static and we've attacked. And I'm sure he'll have a great flavor and we'll involve as many people as we can, and attacking defenses is what it's all about.'
Huddle Up: Luck's status for the 2018 season is still in question, so owners need to monitor the situation during the offense. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL when he is healthy but will be a risky fantasy option. Luck can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is cleared, but owners may want a solid backup in case he misses time.
