Miami Dolphins OT Branden Albert could be traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for TE Julius Thomas, according to league sources, and Albert said he wouldn't 'ruffle feathers' if he was traded.
Huddle Up: Thomas was underutilized in Jacksonville, and he has battled injuries throughout his career. However, he also has a couple of strong years under his belt. He is worth grabbing as a TE2 in 2017 in case he returns to form.

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing said he will not make changes just for the sake of making them after replacing Bill Musgrave. 'Oh, it will be very subtle,' Downing said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Feb. 15. 'We're going to keep the same system terminology. There's no reason to change any of that stuff. All we're doing right now is finding the ways that we can all individually do our jobs better, prepare our positions better, and how we can just quarter-turn a couple things to make the offense as efficient as possible.'
Huddle Up: This is a wise approach to his new job, as fixing what isn't broken generally doesn't translate well in fantasy. The offensive stars should remain strong contributors, barring injuries, and finding ways to subtly tweak the offense can open doors for fringe players to see larger roles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate tied the single-season franchise record for touchdown receptions by a tight end with eight in 2016.
