2024 NFL offseason movement: Fantasy football impact of signings and trades

How Hollywood Brown would bolster the Chiefs' quest for a 3-peat (2:15)

With Marquise "Hollywood" Brown expected to sign a 1-year deal with the Chiefs, the "Get Up" crew discuss how he'll perform in Kansas City. (2:15)

The fantasy football offseason has been hot NFL free agency and some big-time trades. This column is designed to be a one-stop shop for quick-hitting analysis of the most impactful player movement.

ESPN Fantasy writers Tristan H. Cockcroft, Eric Karabell, Liz Loza and Eric Moody offer their insights into what each move means for a player's fantasy value in 2024. Mike Clay offers his projections.

Wide receiver

Stefon Diggs traded to Houston Texans
Fantasy Impact: neutral to negative for Diggs, Nico Collins and Tank Dell; positive for C.J. Stroud, Khalil Shakir, Curtis Samuel and Dalton Kincaid

Fantasy football managers loved Diggs for most of his Buffalo tenure, as he surpassed 100 receptions, 1,100 receiving yards and caught eight or more touchdowns in each of his four seasons. Diggs was a first-round pick in 2023 fantasy drafts for a reason, and he finished the campaign with 107 catches, 1,183 yards and eight scores. He produced stellar numbers, but it is how he achieved them in his final season that frustrated many a fantasy manager.

This may be why the dramatic Diggs, 30, is now a Texan, after the stunning trade involving draft picks. Diggs started the 2023 season by eclipsing 100 receiving yards in five of the first six games, and he scored seven touchdowns over the first nine games. He averaged eight catches and 93 receiving yards per game over nine games, but only four receptions and 43 yards and scored one touchdown over the final eight games, as rumors flew about his clashing with QB Josh Allen and team management. The end seemed nigh.

The rising Texans seem loaded offensively with QB C.J. Stroud, the offensive rookie of the year, former Bengals RB Joe Mixon, WRs Nico Collins and Tank Dell, and underrated TE Dalton Schultz. Adding Diggs aids Stroud, who already threw for 4,108 yards and 23 TDs as a rookie, and it may push him into the top five of fantasy QBs. Mixon will get his numbers, too. Diggs, Collins, Dell and Schultz, however, may find it challenging as they battle for targets. Stroud certainly looks better today in fantasy, as he may throw 30 TD passes with so much talent surrounding him.

The Bills should fare just fine sans Diggs, just as the Chiefs did after they moved on from Tyreek Hill. Khalil Shakir, Curtis Samuel and Mack Hollins are the top wide receivers on the current depth chart, though the Bills may add through the deep draft. TE Dalton Kincaid is poised for a major breakout. Do not worry about Allen. Thanks to his running prowess, he hardly suffered statistically even when Diggs was a nonfactor the final few months. -- Karabell

Marquise Brown signs with Kansas City Chiefs
Fantasy Impact: positive

The most talented -- as well as accomplished -- wide receiver the Chiefs have rostered since Tyreek Hill's departure following the 2021 season (sorry, Marquez Valdes-Scantling), Brown gives the team the speedy, deep-threat type they needed... though the team is hardly complaining about how 2023 turned out in spite of that positional weakness. Brown's two seasons in Arizona were disappointing, as he didn't click in the Cardinals' offense in either season and was held back by injuries and the frequent absences of quarterback Kyler Murray. As the Chiefs also have Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice on the roster, Brown's fantasy prospects might be occasionally hit-or-miss on a weekly basis, but the landing spot is clearly a plus for his overall value. There's a significantly higher, potentially low-end WR2 ceiling again in play for him. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projection: 15 games, 107 targets, 60 receptions, 899 yards, 7 TDs

Keenan Allen traded to Chicago Bears
Fantasy Impact: negative

It's the end of an era. After 11 seasons with the Chargers, Allen was traded to the Bears in exchange for a fourth-round pick. The (almost) 32-year-old is coming off a dominant effort in which he recorded a career-high 108 grabs, 1,243 yards (second most of his career) and 7 touchdowns (his best since 2020). Allen averaged over 21 fantasy points per game and closed out the year as the virtual game's eighth-most productive player at the position.

The Chargers are, clearly, overhauling the franchise, having parted ways with Allen, Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams and Gerald Everett. That leaves Justin Herbert with Quentin Johnston, Joshua Palmer and newcomers Gus Edwards and Will Dissly. Los Angeles now appears poised to select a wide receiver (let the Malik Nabers speculation begin) with the fifth pick in next month's draft. Given the change in supporting cast and regime, Herbert is no longer a lock for top-10 fantasy football QB consideration.

The quarterback situation in Chicago is even murkier, as the Bears might stick with Justin Fields or opt to draft Caleb Williams with the first overall pick. What is clear, however, is the team's desire to upgrade the talent surrounding its eventual QB, having added Allen, RB D'Andre Swift and TE Everett to last year's headlining duo of DJ Moore and Cole Kmet. Allen will compete for looks with Moore, who had 96 catches, 1,364 and 8 touchdowns in 2023. Moore figures to lead the group and could post low-end WR1 numbers. Allen, on the other hand, is likely to land on the WR2/WR3 bubble for fantasy purposes. -- Loza

Clay's projection: 15 games, 120 targets, 82 receptions, 869 yards, 4 TDs

Curtis Samuel signs with the Buffalo Bills
Fantasy Impact: neutral

Much to the chagrin of Jahan Dotson investors, Samuel led the Commanders in red zone looks (15) and was second in team targets (92) last year. The multidimensional pass-catcher averaged just under 10 fantasy points per game. While his receiving numbers (62-613-4) were nearly identical to those posted in 2022, Samuel's rushing opportunities decreased in 2023. The 27-year-old's versatility should, however, be utilized in Buffalo, where he will reunite with former Carolina OC Joe Brady. The Bills figure to add receiving talent via the draft, but with Gabe Davis gone, Samuel could produce flex-worthy numbers for fantasy managers. -- Loza

Clay's projection: 15 games, 86 targets, 59 receptions, 607 yards, 5 TDs
NOTE: This analysis/projection was prior to the Diggs trade to Houston

Calvin Ridley signs with Tennessee Titans
Fantasy impact: neutral

Arguably the most sought-after wide receiver in this year's free agent class, Ridley opted to leave Jacksonville (and eschew the Patriots), instead landing in Tennessee on a four-year deal reportedly worth $92 million (and with $50 million guaranteed). The 29-year-old, who returned to the field after a one-year suspension in 2022, put together an up-and-down effort last season, managing six games over 20 fantasy points and nine outings under 10 fantasy points. Ironically, two of his best showings (in which he recorded at least six catches and cleared 100 yards) came against his new team.

Ridley figures to work as a complement to DeAndre Hopkins, who is likely to find himself open more regularly next season. The new addition also puts a lid on the idea of a Treylon Burks breakout. The length and cost of Ridley's contract (along with the Tony Pollard signing) does, however, signal an investment in second-year QB Will Levis. Led by Brian Callahan, the new-look Titans appear to be taking an aerial approach to the offense. That should further work in Ridley's favor, who presents as a WR2 (with plenty of upside) for fantasy purposes. -- Loza

Clay's projection: 15 games, 132 targets, 77 receptions, 1,042 yards, 7 TDs

Diontae Johnson traded to the Carolina Panthers
Fantasy impact: neutral for Johnson, positive for Bryce Young

Johnson registered a whopping five scores in 2023 -- which was five times as many as he managed the year before -- but still ranked him outside of the top 25 players at the position in terms of total TDs. An early-season hamstring issue in addition to the emergence of George Pickens also negatively affected Johnson's volume, as the 27-year-old drew a career-low 87 looks (6.7 per game, WR45). It's worth mentioning that Kenny Pickett lobbed a mere 58 catchable balls (66.7% catchable target rate, WR70) Johnson's way, which certainly hurt the wideout's productivity (51-717-5). It's unlikely that Johnson's conversion rate will skyrocket with Bryce Young under center (59.8% CMP).

What is clear, however, is Carolina's commitment to Young's development. From the installation of Dave Canales as the team's head coach to the addition of Johnson, the Panthers appear all-in on their first-round pick from a year ago. As it stands, the former Steeler figures to work as the team's No. 1 WR ... but the newness of the offense caps his ceiling, making him a low-end WR2 for fantasy purposes. -- Loza

Clay's projection: 15 games, 125 targets, 78 receptions, 1,094 yards, 6 TDs

Darnell Mooney signs with the Atlanta Falcons
Fantasy impact: neutral for Mooney, positive for the Falcons

The Falcons continued beefing up their offense with the signing of Mooney, who struggled to put up fantasy numbers while working with Justin Fields in Chicago but remains a solid deep threat who managed a WR23 finish in 2021. Drake London should remain the team's top target, but Mooney should have his moments as the No. 2 receiver, perhaps leaning more boom/bust as a weekly play of the two. Consider it a signal that the Kirk Cousins-led Falcons offense should lean similarly pass-heavy to his Minnesota Vikings teams, but that's not at all a bad thing for London, Mooney, Kyle Pitts or Bijan Robinson. The arrow is pointing up. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 15 games, 86 targets, 59 receptions, 715 yards, 5 TDs

Gabe Davis signs with the Jacksonville Jaguars
Fantasy impact: neutral to positive

The presumed big-play receiver replacement for Calvin Ridley, Davis' 14.6 yard average depth of target was second most in the league, and 27% of his receptions went for 20 yards last season. Some of Davis' success needs be attributed to Josh Allen, whose 60 completions and 12 touchdowns on throws at least 15 yards downfield ranked fifth and second last season, though his new quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, had a respectable 49 (11th) and 10 (eighth) in that department. While Davis' fantasy value -- that of a matchups-oriented WR4/5 -- might not change in Jacksonville, there is the path to his gaining a larger role than merely the situational deep threat he was in Buffalo the past two years. There's a hint more upside now. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 15 games, 83 targets, 47 receptions, 700 yards, 6 TDs

Jerry Jeudy traded to the Cleveland Browns
Fantasy impact: neutral for Jeudy, positive for Marvin Mims Jr.

The substantial takeaway here doesn't pertain to Jeudy at all. It's that his departure from Denver paves the way for fantasy darling Mims to see a huge spike in targets, aligning for a prospective breakthrough. Mims might have WR3 upside, dependent upon the identity of his quarterback. Jeudy, meanwhile, should settle in as the Browns' No. 2 receiver, a role that'll probably bring similar depth/matchups appeal for fantasy rather than grant him a true breakout path. It's bad news for Elijah Moore, who scored 77 PPR fantasy points in his final nine games of 2023 but will now struggle to see consistent targets. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 15 games, 99 targets, 62 receptions, 923 yards, 4 TDs

Running back

AJ Dillon re-signs with the Green Bay Packers
Fantasy Impact: neutral

Expected to remain in Green Bay pending a physical, Dillon figures to work as Josh Jacobs' backup in 2024. A perennial breakout candidate, the Boston College product struggled last season, posting his lowest numbers since 2020 and registering a disappointing 3.4 yards per carry. He also dealt with injuries (groin strain, broken thumb, neck sprain) over the final weeks of his fourth pro campaign. Given that Dillon was unable to claim the starting gig (or even impress) while Aaron Jones was hampered by hamstring issues, it doesn't inspire confidence in Dillon's ability to bounce back this go-around. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 14 games; 99 carries, 391 yards, 3 TDs; 33 targets, 26 receptions, 203 yards, 1 TD

Derrick Henry signs with the Baltimore Ravens
Fantasy impact: positive

As he enters his age-30 season, Henry lands in one of the best situations for his skill set, in Todd Monken's run-heavy Ravens offense that was the league's only one to attempt more rushing than passing plays last year. Most critically, Henry goes from running behind the game's weakest offensive line, per Pro Football Focus, to one of its best. The burning question at his age, however, is for how much longer can Henry maintain top-10 fantasy running back performance?

The history of running backs age 30 and older and with the 2,030 career carries that he has -- not to mention that he has led the league in rushing attempts in four of the past five seasons -- isn't good, but Henry's landing spot grants him about as strong a case to repeat his RB8 finish of 2023 as there is. Knock him down a couple ranking spots accounting for his age and injury history, but the Ravens will likely spell him often and well enough to maximize his production and keep him worth a top-12 positional pick. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 14 games; 240 carries, 1,012 yards, 11 TDs; 36 targets, 28 receptions, 235 yards, 1 TD

Joe Mixon traded to the Houston Texans
Fantasy impact: positive

After the Cincinnati Bengals signed Zack Moss, the team traded Mixon to the Texans. Mixon lands in about the best circumstance he could've asked for, being a player certain to switch teams this offseason. The Texans have an up-and-coming offense but also a running game that sputtered last season, especially while Dameon Pierce was their starter. Mixon, while not the player he was four or five years ago, represents a substantial upgrade over Pierce, particularly in short-yardage situations. Mixon converted 53% of his goal-line chances the past three seasons, his 17 total touchdowns in that time second-best in the league. Pierce, meanwhile, was one of the game's worst in 2022-23, turning 12 goal-line tries into four scores (his 33.3% success rate was second worst among players with at least 10 attempts).

Mixon should have no problem serving again as a weekly RB2, getting the bulk of the rushing work plus all of the goal-line carries. His arrival is also plenty good news for sophomore quarterback C.J. Stroud and his young group of wide receivers. --Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 14 games; 255 carries, 1,065 yards, 8 TDs; 52 targets, 41 receptions, 287 yards, 3 TDs

Aaron Jones signs with the Minnesota Vikings
Fantasy impact: neutral

Cut by the Green Bay Packers on Monday in favor of Josh Jacobs, Jones latched on with the running back-needy Vikings less than 24 hours later. It's a good landing spot for the 29-year-old (he'll turn 30 in December) as the Vikings cut the ineffective Alexander Mattison two weeks earlier and had only Ty Chandler, Cam Akers and Kene Nwangwu at the position. Jones averaged 12.3 PPR fantasy points in his 11 healthy games in 2023, 26th among running backs who appeared in at least half of their teams' games, and the history of soon-to-be 30-year-olds at the position is checkered at best.

Still, Jones is a good fit for what is a pass-heavy offense in Minnesota. He has averaged 4.2 targets per game over the past five seasons, indicating that he'll surely handle the team's passing downs, and if the Vikings use Chandler to spell Jones in an effective manner on rushing downs, they might yet squeeze another RB2-caliber fantasy stat line out of the veteran. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 156 carries, 722 yards, 4 TDs; 59 targets, 43 receptions, 346 yards, 2 TDs

Austin Ekeler signs with Washington Commanders
Fantasy impact: negative

We have another running back reunion! Ekeler penned a two-year deal with the Commanders. Anthony Lynn (who will work as Washington's RBs coach in 2024) was the Chargers head coach when Ekeler entered the league in 2017. Lynn, a former RB himself, was instrumental in Austin's ascent from UDFA to fantasy superstar.

Ekeler isn't likely to shoulder the load alone in Washington but rather, work as a complement to Brian Robinson Jr., who should continue to thrive on early downs and in a short-yardage capacity. Given that the Commanders' offense is very much a work in progress, Ekeler's rushing efficiency isn't likely to rebound anytime soon. His pass-catching prowess should be on full display though, as he emerges as a safety valve for whichever rookie quarterback the team drafts in April. With Washington likely to be playing from behind, Austin should deliver low-end RB2/high-end RB3 numbers in PPR-friendly formats. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 14 games, 131 carries, 525 yards, 4 TDs; 54 rec., 468 yards, 2 TDs

Gus Edwards signs with Los Angeles Chargers
Fantasy impact: neutral

The Gus Bus is heading west for a reunion with his former OC Greg Roman in SoCal. Edwards broke every rule about TD regression, recording 13 total scores (RB4) in 2023. He is a two-down grinder with an undeniable nose for the end zone and figures to work as the Chargers' short-yardage option. His efficiency will probably take a hit without Lamar Jackson beguiling defenses, but the complexion of the Chargers' retooled offense should allow Edwards to retain flex fantasy value. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 15 games, 174 carries, 703 yards, 8 TDs; 17 rec., 138 yards, 1 TD

Devin Singletary signs with the New York Giants
Fantasy impact: neutral

After leaving Buffalo for Houston, Singletary is heading back to the northeast, this time on a three-year deal with the Giants. Saquon Barkley's departure created an enormous chasm in the team's RB room, a void that Singletary won't fill alone. The Giants are expected to employ a committee approach in the backfield and Singletary showed flashes during the second half of the 2023 season, averaging over 14 fantasy points per game from Weeks 10 through 18. That is less likely to occur with the Giants however, the team's offense lacks both zip and leadership (particularly in comparison to the Texans' offense). Consider Singletary a reliable-but-middling RB3 for fantasy purposes heading into 2024. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 14 games, 202 carries, 859 yards, 5 TDs; 35 rec., 232 yards, 1 TD

Antonio Gibson signs with the New England Patriots
Fantasy impact: neutral

Brian Robinson Jr.'s emergence in Washington upended thoughts that Gibson might finally unlock his full potential. Gibson's carries have steadily declined over the past few seasons, though his catches have remained stable, averaging close to three receptions per game for three straight seasons. With New England likely to move on from Ezekiel Elliott, Gibson will join Rhamondre Stevenson in the team's backfield. Gibson's pass-catching ability figures to be utilized in a third down or change-of-pace role, which could benefit PPR enthusiasts seeking a valuable flex option late in drafts. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 14 games, 128 carries, 539 yards, 3 TDs; 39 rec., 284 yards, 1 TD

Josh Jacobs signs with Green Bay Packers
Fantasy Impact: neutral

The Packers have switched up their backfield. Green Bay added Jacobs and, in a surprising turn of events, released Aaron Jones, who had one year left on his contract. With AJ Dillon set to test free agency, Jacobs could (at least in the present moment) retain an every-down role on his new team. Clearing 260 touches for the fifth consecutive campaign of his career, the former Raider has been a consistent fantasy producer since entering the league in 2019.

His career-best season -- where he averaged over 16 fantasy points per contest -- came in 2022. While Jacobs' numbers unsurprisingly dipped last year (3.5 YPC), he still recorded top-20 FF stats on a per game basis (13.8 fantasy points per game). More of the same (or better) should be expected -- assuming Green Bay drafts a rookie and employs Jacobs as a bridge -- in 2024. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 14 games, 264 carries, 1,008 yards, 8 TDs; 41 rec., 319 yards, 2 TDs

Saquon Barkley signs with the Philadelphia Eagles
Fantasy Impact: positive

Though injuries have been a problem for him throughout his six-year NFL career -- he has missed 25 games in that time -- Barkley has proven himself one of the league's most well-rounded running backs when on the field, averaging a fifth-best-at-his-position 17.6 PPR fantasy points per game since entering the league. He gives the Eagles a much-needed rushing boost, adding a dimension to the offense that at times was lacking in 2023, particularly late in the year. As Barkley's receiving numbers suffered as a result of the frequent injuries to Daniel Jones while in New York, he should rebound in Philadelphia working with Jalen Hurts. A return, or improvement upon, his 2022 numbers is entirely possible, if he plays a similar number of games.

Consider him an 18-carries-a-game player, rendering Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott and Rashaad Penny mere change-of-pace backs. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 14 games, 252 carries, 1,035 yards, 9 TDs; 42 rec., 330 yards, 2 TDs

Tony Pollard signs with the Tennessee Titans
Fantasy impact: neutral

He was one of the biggest disappointments in 2023, his first season as a full-time starter, as Pollard saw 59 more carries and 75 more touches but totaled 62 fewer yards. That he did so behind one of the game's better offensive lines, on a team with one of the league's best passing offenses, is especially unsettling. Pollard should have an opportunity to seize a similar amount of work, but in a less optimal environment -- bad offensive line and shaky passing game -- and with Tyjae Spears lurking to steal work if the 2023 struggles repeat. Fantasy managers -- this columnist included -- would've loved to see Spears get a chance instead, but this might quickly morph into a time share. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 14 games, 190 carries, 809 yards, 6 TDs; 41 rec., 265 yards, 1 TD

D'Andre Swift signs with the Chicago Bears
Fantasy impact: neutral

He is an unusual addition for the price, considering his sluggish finish to 2023 -- he averaged 9.9 PPR fantasy points in the season's second half and had 66 total yards in the Philadelphia Eagles' wild-card loss. Additionally, there is the presence of Roschon Johnson and Khalil Herbert on the roster, but Swift's deal assures he'll probably occupy a three-down role. It's a downgrade in offense, with the Bears likely to draft Caleb Williams as their quarterback, making Swift a low-to-midrange RB2 for fantasy (Mike Clay projects him for 1,054 total yards, 209 fewer than last season). Johnson is now more of an afterthought, after originally appearing like he might be a decent bargain candidate entering 2024. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 14 games, 169 carries, 756 yards, 5 TDs; 40 rec., 298 yards, 2 TDs

Gardner Minshew signs with the Las Vegas Raiders
Fantasy impact: neutral to positive

Landing on this fourth team in six years, Minshew inked a two-year deal worth a reported $25 million ($15 million guaranteed) with the Raiders. He recorded 3,305 yards and 15 TDs (plus three rushing scores) on 490 pass attempts after taking over for the injured Anthony Richardson last season. The vet averaged 13.75 fantasy points per game (QB21) over his 13 starts in 2023.

A fine bridge for a team in the throes of a rebuild, Minshew appears in line (right now) to compete with (and likely beat out) Aidan O'Connell for the starting gig in Vegas. While Minshew's talents aren't exactly elite, his experience and savvy figure to buoy both Davante Adams' and Jakobi Meyers' fantasy floors. It is unlikely that Minshew will crack the top-25 fantasy producers at the position, but he could retain value as a backup in super flex leagues. -- Loza

Clay's projections: 9 games, 194 comp., 306 att., 2,151 yards, 11 TDs, 7 INTs

Kirk Cousins signs with the Atlanta Falcons
Fantasy impact: positive

The Falcons' offense just keeps getting more interesting this offseason, as after the hiring of coach Raheem Morris, the team now signs Cousins, a very good-albeit-unspectacular quarterback who represents a sizable upgrade upon the Marcus Mariota/Desmond Ridder/Taylor Heinicke rotation the team had in 2022-23.

Cousins is coming off a torn Achilles' that does present some injury risk at the season's onset, but he averaged 18.7 fantasy points in eight starts before getting hurt, sixth best among quarterbacks who started at least that many games. He's a borderline QB1, probably best ranked 12th or 13th at his position, but his arrival is plenty promising for the futures of running back Bijan Robinson and tight end Kyle Pitts. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 15 games, 350 comp., 535 att., 3,992 yards, 25 TDs, 11 INTs

Russell Wilson signs with the Pittsburgh Steelers
Fantasy impact: neutral to positive for Wilson, negative for Pickett

[Note: This was written before Diontae Johnson was traded to the Carolina Panthers.]

The move sets up a genuine quarterback battle between Wilson, whose 16.1 fantasy points per start during his two seasons in Denver ranked 18th among quarterbacks (minimum 10 starts), and Kenny Pickett, whose 10.3 points ranked 41st. Wilson presumably wouldn't have selected a team unwilling to let him start, so he'll probably be under center in Week 1 unless he has an awful preseason. He'll have a decent pair of receivers to throw to in Diontae Johnson and George Pickens, and could benefit from Arthur Smith's run-oriented offense that should more frequently rely on play-action. Wilson still seems most likely to be a matchups quarterback, even with a standout preseason that nets him a starting job. -- Cockcroft

Clay's projections: 15 games, 311 comp., 485 att., 3,475 yards, 19 TDs, 11 INTs

Tight end

Gerald Everett signs with the Chicago Bears
Fantasy impact: negative

After spending the entirety of his career on the West Coast, Everett is heading to the middle of the country. The (almost) 30-year-old penned a two-year deal with the Bears. It's a head-scratching move for Chicago, given Cole Kmet's presence and the lack of receiving options behind DJ Moore. The signing suggests Everett will be involved in the passing game. How much, of course, remains to be seen. Everett averaged nearly five targets per contest last season, but that was without Mike Williams on the field. He also struggled with drops while additionally recording a career-low 8.1 YPR (TE36). As long as Kmet -- who closed out his best statistical season as FF's TE8 over last year -- stays healthy, a rebound for Everett seems unlikely. -- Loza

Clay's projection: 15 games, 38 targets, 26 receptions, 251 yards, 2 TDs

Noah Fant stays with Seattle Seahawks
Fantasy impact: neutral to positive

Seattle's new regime seems intent on keeping Fant in town and, hopefully, unlocking his full potential. The former first-round pick signed a two-year deal reportedly worth $21 million. With Will Dissly heading to the Chargers and Colby Parkinson landing with the Rams, Fant's target share could blossom. Additionally working in Fant's favor is the installation of new OC Ryan Grubb, who favored a high-flying attack at the University of Washington over the past few seasons.

Coming off a career low 32-414-0 stat line, Fant appears primed for a rebound. He's unlikely to finish inside the top-12 fantasy players at the position, but he could crack the top 15-20, presenting managers with streaming potential on a week-to-week basis. -- Loza

Clay's projection: 15 games, 62 targets, 46 receptions, 458 yards, 2 TDs
