2016 NFL Free Agent Fantasy Finds

Mar 9, 2016

Matt Forte
Busy first day of NFL free agent action.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Houston Texans – My expectations are for Brock to flop for Houston. He’ll help DeAndre Hopkins, but he’s a low-end QB2 at best.
Matt Forte, RB, New York Jets – Forte is a nice replacement for Chris Ivory. He should remain in the RB1 mix.
Chris Ivory, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – We spoke about him earlier, but this move makes little sense with T.J. Yeldon entering his second year. Hurts both values.
Lamar Miller, RB, Houston – Miller has every opportunity to remain a fantasy force. He’ll also be in the RB1 mix. Nice fit for Miller.
Travis Benjamin, WR, San Diego Chargers – Gets upgrade at QB. Nice landing spot. Should be on the WR3 or WR4 radar.
Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions – Nice landing spot as Megatron retired. He’ll pair with Golden Tate for a solid 1-2 punch with TE Eric Ebron picking up some slack as well. WR3 material.
Ladarius Green, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers – Nice option to replace the retired Heath Miller. TE1 potential with Big Ben.
Ben Watson, TE, Baltimore Ravens – Leaving Drew Brees will hurt his value. TE2 at best.
