    Washington Redskins impending free-agent Kirk Cousins is favored to sign with the Denver Broncos, in the opinion of's Peter King.

    Huddle Up: Cousins has been on the fringe of an elite fantasy quarterback the last couple of years without a lot around him. If he went to Denver to throw to established receivers, he could firmly entrench himself in the top-five at the position.

  • Allen Robinson - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
    Posted 2/18/18 7:25pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Allen Robinson will likely take precedent over impending free-agent WR Marqise Lee when it comes to contract negotiations, according to Gregg Rosenthal of

    Huddle Up: Robinson is coming off a knee injury, but while Lee showed some potential last year, Robinson has the much higher ceiling. Wherever Robinson ends up, he will have WR2 potential. Lee is likely a bench option for fantasy owners.

  • A.J. McCarron - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 2/18/18 7:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron's 'ceiling is that of a solid game manager,' according to a scout.

    Huddle Up: Being a game manager might not translate to fantasy stardom, but McCarron could be a serviceable fantasy backup if he lands a starting gig for 2018.

  • A.J. McCarron - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
    Posted 2/18/18 6:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron will likely command a contract for 'at least' as much as the three-year, $45 million contract Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon signed last year, according to Rich Cimini of

    Huddle Up: McCarron is an unknown commodity, but if he can land a starting gig for 2018, he will be worth a look as a low-end QB2.

  • Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets
    Posted 2/18/18 6:30pm ET

    New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is viewed by the coaching staff as a complementary back, according to Rich Cimini of

    Huddle Up: There is a good chance Matt Forte will be released, but it sounds like Powell wouldn't see much of an increase in his workload. He should still have value as a potential flex play in PPR formats, but his ceiling appears limited.

  • Case Keenum - QB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 2/18/18 6:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum is still the favorite to return as the starter in 2018 because offensive coordinator John DeFilippo prefers athletic quarterbacks, according to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

    Huddle Up: Keenum had a breakout campaign in 2017, and if he does return as Minnesota's starter, he should be a solid QB2.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins
    Posted 2/18/18 11:23am ET

    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
    Posted 2/18/18 10:10am ET

    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
    Posted 2/18/18 9:36am ET

    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
    Posted 2/18/18 9:28am ET

    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
    Posted 2/17/18 8:17pm ET

    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
    Posted 2/17/18 8:00pm ET

    The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of, 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
    Posted 2/17/18 6:37pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had been thinking about retirement 'long before' the loss in Super Bowl LII, according to Jeff Darlington of

    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
    Posted 2/17/18 2:00pm ET

    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
    Posted 2/17/18 1:54pm ET

    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
    Posted 2/16/18 8:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell could be shopped this offseason for a draft pick, according to Courtney Cronin of

    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
    Posted 2/16/18 7:08pm ET

    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
    Posted 2/16/18 6:56pm ET

    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
    Posted 2/16/18 6:32pm ET

    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.
