Nowadays there is no such thing as an NFL offseason, as players work out year-round and switch teams more often than ever. Fantasy football owners also feel the effects of the more active offseason as they try to keep track of player injuries and coaching changes. Here are 10 NFL players whose fantasy football values have changed this offseason.
Running back Carlos Hyde returns to his roots after four years with the Niners. He signed a three-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, hoping to show the spark he had at Ohio State.
The Cleveland Browns traded for the Dolphins’ Jarvis Landry, who posted two 1,000-yard receiving seasons in Miami. He’s part of a revamped offense in Cleveland, along with running back Carlos Hyde and quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
Released this offseason by the Tennessee Titans, running back DeMarco Murray has yet to join a team but hopes to prove there’s still some life in his legs. He’s only 30 years old and still holds the Cowboys record of 1,845 rushing yards in 2014.
With three solid years at the helm of the Washington Redskins, Cousins signed an $84 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings. He inherits a team coming off an NFC Championship loss one week after the Minnesota Miracle.
Case Keenum signed with the Denver Broncos for two years for $36 million after leading the Vikings to one win away from the Super Bowl. He’ll be forever remembered as the man who threw the touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs known as The Minnesota Miracle.
After two solid seasons for the Jaguars, Allen Robinson tore his ACL in the first game of 2017. With a year off rehabilitating his knee, Robinson looks to rebound with the Chicago Bears, where he signed a three-year, $42 million contract.
As the Seattle Seahawks go through a rebuild, Jimmy Graham left in free agency and signed a three-year, $30 million deal with the Green Bay Packers, where he’ll enjoy catching passes from future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers.
With the Cowboys signing wideout Allen Hurns, receiver Dez Bryant may be on his way out of Dallas. Other teams will no doubt open up their wallets to sign Bryant, who’s reportedly working with coaches to improve his route-running.
Dion Lewis was a solid running back with the Patriots, helping them win a Super Bowl in 2016. He’ll be the lightning to incumbent Derrick Henry’s thunder in Tennessee’s dual-threat backfield.
Receiver Terrelle Pryor moves from Washington to New York, where he’ll be an immediate upgrade to the Jets’ passing game. As a former quarterback, Pryor may even throw a few passes while the Jets rebuild their offense.
